Catharsis: Remove The Dead Weight
When you come into this world, you are a Tabula Rasa, a blank page, you have written on you lies until you can only see lies on the page, in order to self-realize you have to erase the lies one by one.
Timelesly, are you present.
Springed out of nothing, this persone you call ''me'', arised.
And to nothing shall it return.
A seed was planted; a tree from it has grown.
You are not the branches, neither the fruits or the leaves.
Look at the root.
Don't read with your mind; don't try to understand.
You already know... or never known, and never will.
Both are the same. Two wings of one bird.
Two sides of one knife; knife that can cut so many things,
but could never cut himself.
You are. No need to go any further than that.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda delivers the discourse "Deep Truths on Ego Fulfillment by Conquering Senses"
Truths about Inner Chattering
Reflections on the
Ego-a concept verbalized by Freud that sits in mutual reciprocity with the concepts of the Id, and the Superego. Sometimes the guru is the cure and the disease. Freud late in life said "Man is sick and cannot be helped." So should we even drink this Hemlock cup of Freud's and risk drinking in the swill of 'Ego?' Too late, the belief in ego is already rooted in sand and can be pulled up gently, letting the soil of samskaras fall from the root being or can be pulled up suddenly bringing chunks of soil with. In this latter case, the process of purification(tapas) is required. In the former case, the purification is achieved during the process of uprooting.
Monkey Mind- catching hold of the ideas that keep arising out of the ocean of awareness and
following them out of one's centre and
allowing the idea tail to wag the being dog
is the nature of monkey mind.
Strict observing serves to move one directly into alignment with one's sacred centre. Catch the mind. Notice yourself. Are you centred? Is a feeling churning up the sediment in your ocean? If so notice it. And say: "that is a feeling" or "that is an idea." Don't verbalize the experience too much as verbalization fires up a part of the brain that impedes realization*. Relax. Soon you will just say: "feeling". Then the sensation that arises before the formation of the word 'feeling' will become more familiar to you. The time gap between the arising of the feeling and the practise of noticing the feeling will form into a sensation at a subverbal level. The repetition of this sensation will grow your sensitivity to the 'subtle body.' This discipline of identifying thoughts, feelings or anything else that bubbles out of the great yawning void of eternity on whose shores we forever stand, can bring you deep into your being quickly if practised consistently for any period of time. You might notice that the thought-feeling-sensations are interwoven but have a vaguely discernible outline. Your inner awaress grows and you become like a bat using your inner light that views the picture screen of arising thought-feelings and echo locates the 'solid' forms in the darker corners of your inner being.
*-A technique to loosen the verbalization part of the mind from the pure essence underneath is a reading technique. To speed read one uses one's fingers to force the pace of the eye across the words. Soon one realizes that one can skip over a lot of the words and 'get the gist.' (Practise this technique reading material that is not too dense)This can help one to build confidence to contemplate beyond words and move more directly into experience.
