Beat the tough with a straw
“I will die some day anyway..........why not today?”
a Tachy Yogi
The universe we live in is based on duality -- having no self-sustaining energy -- therefore is struggling to be! To harmonize duality is a fine art, an art only few hold!
"Quo Vadis Domine?"............Where should I go?............Which path is the right one? This old question is the one Yoga and all other Old Traditions are trying to answer. I am trying to answer this question myself with this book! But answering the question, and realizing how to implement the answer, are two different things. Realizing how to implement the answer, and implementing IT, are two different things as well!
~ To find the answer is the mental reasoning -- the Tachy View -- which comes always through reading, reasoning (analyzing, verbalizing), and visualizing. In short through Cultivation!
~ Realizing how to implement the answer is the action of practicing -- the Tachy Practice -- which is your heartfelt effort leading to Assimilation!
~ The implementation "per se" is the be-coming -- the Tachy Transformation -- what be-comes of you as a result of your Tachy View and Tachy Practice! This is the hard part...........the Validation!
To become what you have realized already needs a special lifetronic energy which we usually think we don't have. In short, only God can create and transform living things, not us -- this is the common belief among men! To change this belief you need something special and simple: another belief, the belief that you can! Without this belief you cannot accomplish anything in life!
If you read about Yoga, TY, or anything else in life and you don't believe in what you have already realized as possible but you don't see IT in fruition yet, you better drop IT! The belief is of most importance because that's what life is, a work of heart. You must believe in something to accomplish that something, and this is due to the nature of the only power in the entire universe, which is the "Will Power". Yes! Desire is the only power in the universe. When you say "I want!", just think about this! The Desire is the one willing and believing!
Which is first we will never know because they are
in fact ONE and the SAME, a Samyama!
Believing this, or anything else, is your choice!
To be sure of this just look around.
The Entity that brought us in fruition uttered ITs will: "let IT be Light!"..........and the light came in existence! This is an expressions of Desire, of Will, of Belief! To say I am wrong saying this is to say I am not writing these lines now! But you know I am, because I want to, I desire to, I believe into! And if you are still reading this book is also because you want to! Do you see IT? The Power is here at all times, IT is just so naturally hidden. When you discover IT, and start believing IT, you will be surprisingly powerful!
Unfortunately, not too many of us believe this, that's why most of us are "nude", with no other power than the same as God, but mirrored in the mind as small. And small you will be indeed mirroring you this way! Do you realize what I am saying here? If you are thinking small, your power is small; if you are thinking big, your power turns big. The power is always there, but the belief is what makes it bigger or smaller because all life, all existence, the entire universe, is a heartfelt mindscape! The way your heartfelt mind is, so are you! Any belief goes then as far as your mind goes, because Life is a heartfelt mindscape! Change you state of heart and you change everything else!
And because any belief translates into an action sooner or later, the action will be great or small according with your belief also. People with a weak belief in themselves are borrowing the belief of others. That's why people go to the doctor, have idols, gods, etc. We have invented God just by believing that is someone or something there with a bigger power than ours. But the power is actually the same in the entire universe. Even Science is telling you the same thing when saying the original power of the universe can never be changed or diminished. What do you make out of this? But it is not easy to believe, as I said! And this is how the struggle begins!
The struggle between what your senso-mind wants to accomplish and what you actually accomplish! This is the most devastating struggle for man, and..........the only one!
I want a car! But I don't have money!
I want money! But I don't have a job!
I want that girl! But she doesn't want me!
I want to be famous! But I am nobody!
I want to be well! But I am suffering!
I want to live! But I am going to die!
I want this, or that, but............! It sounds familiar to all of us!
This is the struggle I am talking about: the conflict between willing and achieving!
The same thing is happening when you start to practice TY, or any Yoga! You keep on practicing and nothing happens (nothing obvious at least). What can you do? Should you waste your living time for something which shows no results? Here again is your choice, and any choices in life are made of beliefs and nothing else! If you believe you won't succeed practicing TY, you won't!
But you should always remember what TY is saying along these lines: there is no other form of art, science, religion, you name it, offering you what TY is giving you in this book: the understanding of life as IT really is through your own senses, feelings, thoughts, etc., through your own being skills and not others'! In short, through your own experience and not through what other form of science, religion, school, cult, political apparatus, etc., are telling or imposing you "To Be".
You must realize the difference here! You have been brain-hacked to believe in all kind of bogus realities through all these social institutions since you were born! You have been "educated by design" to think small for so long! And so is the entire mankind from immemorial times!
But why should you believe in this book?
You shouldn't! This book is showing you the way to believe in yourself! Period! If you believe that someone has to be famous first in order to share his experience with others, I surrender! I am not famous and I don't even want to be! Go ahead make idols among movie stars, sport figures, gurus and such -- be a silly puppet of them!
But just ask mentally yourself: "did I ever, in any place or time, read or hear what I am reading in this book?". If the answer is YES, I capitulate, this book is not for you! But if the answer is NO, give yourself a chance and start to be yourself for once!
The struggle is always greater in the beginning, any beginning! In time the struggle can either become stronger or weaker according with the energy you put into IT. And the amount of energy in any struggle is direct related with your belief in whatever you want to accomplish. If the belief is weak, the struggle will be weak also, and so will be the result of your action. If the belief is strong, so will be everything else! And to repeat myself, this is happening because all life is a mindful event, a belief in ITs way of becoming! Remember: In the end any struggle is an expression of Duality as a tension to be! There is no way "to be" without the tension of duality, which gives you the living battery! This is an Axiomatic Truth!
So when you start practicing TY you better be prepared yourself for struggle. The struggle between your practicing and your pain in a rear for too much sitting in asana; the struggle between now you see it now you don't in respect with some understanding of meanings; the struggle between what this book says it will happen and what actually happens; between a realization and an implementation, etc., etc. But all those things are normal. I've been through all this myself, and many other yogis before me went through the same. Remember: IT is nothing new in the living, whatever you do IT was done by some other people before you many times over.
The Being is a déjà vu at all levels!
But this is normal also because we are great through our sameness and our talents, not through our weirdness! People who are doing weird things to impress others are of no use for mankind, the same way an earthquake, a tornado aren't. Those are anomalies of Nature! If we value abnormal human doings today is because we lost our natural state of being. And Mother Nature responds to all those human anomalies in the same manner, giving us the so called calamities: tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, etc. No wonder we are living in such a mess! Blaming Mother Nature for this is silly!
Remember also that any struggle will succumb after a while, like everything in the living does, and your success will be the prove of your commitment and your progress. Your strength will grow stronger, and your life will become better. Then, one day, you will realize that: "the universe man lives in is designed for struggle, therefore not being man anymore is the only way to transcend into a better universe without the curse of entropic struggle of T/S". When this happens you start living elsewhere, leaving behind the human cocoon. And what a celebration that will be indeed for you and the ones already there!
A thing you should know also is the fact that for a real yogi the struggle goes always hand in hand with the "siddhis" (the miraculous powers). Those powers are coming at times of great accomplishments as a help and a reward for the progress you have made. The power of reading minds, changing sizes, of becoming invisible, of being in several places in the same time, of being disintegrated and reintegrated at will, among others. You can actually be whatever you want to be if you are brave enough to handle what you've picked to be-come. In short, if you are not scare of the consequences of having such powers. Please keep this in mind!
All these powers are like a seal of approval from beyond, coming to you as a prove of how much compassion higher entities have for your actions. But don't get yourself tricked, even those are under the dualistic living "spell"! Remember this when you use them -- in times of need -- and never abuse them! Remember also that any Power is from the same one who made the Obstacle in front of IT. They are both "seeding" the Dualistic Living you are in! IT is far better to face them both with Equanimity and Compassion instead!
Those powers can become a burden for you if you decide to use them unscrupulously for other purpose than helping you in your path to freedom. You should always remember: any power has to be in perfect harmony with the obstacle opposing IT. In short, the play of Bliss and Abyss has to be always in perfect harmony, otherwise you are heading for disharmony and suffering!
In Yoga, as well as in other human endeavors, is essential to know yourself. That is why I have stressed on the practice of self-witnessing giving you the purification you need before starting the Major Practice of TY. This will help you to be in control of yourself when the siddhis and other wonder worlds will come to you as a reward of your progress. Otherwise you will be in danger of not knowing what it will happen to you next. It is similar with walking in a jungle without knowing what is there. You never now what it could happen! So please be careful when you get at these levels!
The road is never straight or smooth, spiraling being the main aspect of T/S living, therefore you should never expect an easy ride. But when the accomplishment is there even the road disappears, and the ride is no more. Then you make the road, and this time you make IT straight like an arrow going head on to ITs target. Living (the Being) is a circled action of duality and T/S, knowing of no straight line. Only when you discover that straight line going through the center of that living circle you are free of struggle, traveling through Linear Conduits of divinity. Dwelling in the very Core/Center, you will be no more, turning into a Wholesome Singularity! This is an Axiomatic Truth!
I was personally in struggle all my life, trying to liberate myself from something that I did not even know what IT was. First I thought it was the totalitarian communist country I was born in. I have escaped from there to come here in the US, the land of freedom, to realize that I still need to free myself of something. After so much struggle I have finally realized that in order to be totally free you have to not be at all! And what a discovery this is indeed! Now I know at least what to do! And this makes a lot of difference! Now the struggle is totally gone! Now I believe also that I can do IT!
And I know also I don't need a comfortable retreat or such for this! I can do IT from my own little corner in my room because now I know, and I believe in what I know! Now I am ready to surrender this life, mistakenly called mine, to a better way to be (other than man)! Now I am finally relieved of any struggle and open to any happenings! Oh well, this is me now in my way of being no more!
What I am trying to explain here is that any struggle is relative: relative to your progress, relative to circumstances, to your changing beliefs, and to life itself. When someone realizes this the struggle is gone, being replaced by an inside feeling of calm and serenity!
So please don't be afraid of struggling, it is part of life, ending the same way life does. We are struggling in life everyday until we die, and in so far nobody was coming from the dead to tell me dying is a misery, but rather the contrary. So until someone comes back from the dead screaming of pain, I reserve the right to believe otherwise. Struggle or not here I come to rescue me!
INNERLY THROUGH SAMADHI
~ A BELIEF IS ALL IT TAKES TO BUILD A UNIVERSE! THE STRUGGLE BEGINS WHEN THE BELIEF IS GONE !!!
~ IF A BELIEF IS SMALL, SO WILL BE YOUR STRENGTH! WE BELIEVE IN A GOD BIGGER AND STRONGER THAN US BECAUSE THE BELIEF IN US IS SO SMALL IN COMPARISON !!!
~ CHANGING A BELIEF WITH ANOTHER BELIEF IS ALL IT TAKES TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR LIVING !!!
~ TY'S APPROACH TOWARD LIFE IS SO RADICAL THAT IS ASKING YOU TO CHANGE ALL YOUR PRIOR BELIEFS LEARNED THROUGH SCHOOLING, SOCIETY, ETC.! FOR MOST PEOPLE THIS IS TOO MUCH STRUGGLE! FOR FEW IT IS JUST THE RIGHT THING !!!
IS RELATIVE, AND HAS AN END, LIKE THE LIFE ITSELF! IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF DYING YOU ARE NOT WORTH LIVING, AND YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT READY FOR TY !!!
