CONVINCE ME THAT I'M WRONG

Photobucket


It takes guts, courage,
determination to refuse
to allow 7.4 billion people to
convince me that I'm wrong.
*
*

That's how they steal your heart
by keeping you in perpetual fear.
*
*

I have access to
all the characters.
*
*

Some die from
speaking the Truth.
Others life a life of lies.
*
*

What else could
one have beyond love?
*
*

No one can get past
'By their actions
shall ye know them.'
*
*

There is only
choice in duality.
*
*

What are you committed to?
What will you die for?
*
*

There is
no world
without you.
*
*

It's life that's writing.
It's life itself that lives.
*
*

There are no answers.
Good questions are
what you need.
*
*

Desire-less
Devotion.
*
*

Joy is
a quality-
less state.
*
*

Create a safe,
private environment
for yourself &
get in touch with it.
A little bit
at a time
Be careful.
*
*

I am in touch with
societies rage
at all times.
*
*

Many people have tried
to manipulate me
by showing me their rage.
All I do is remain silent
& reflect it back to them.
*
*

Enlightenment means
living in ones'
natural state.

Separateness is all pain & misery.
The ego doesn't want to be unified.
*
*

Void of content
that's why it's the Void.
Lack of content.
*
*

Illusion is such a powerful thing which means
you have no chance of escaping reality.
*
*

The man of compassion
sees himself as he is.
He can also see himself
through the eyes of others.
*
*


Falling in love with the reflection &
forgetting the sun is not very intelligent.
*
*

Karma is created
by being attached
to the fruits
of ones actions.
*
*

People who manifest
unconditioned love
are dangerous
to ignorance.
*
*

There's no thinking
in fight or flight;
it just happens.
*
*

Beggars are not stuck with
the false idea of choice.
*
*

I beg you,
for your own sake,
stop killing each other
while you still can.
*
*

I am not interested
in your praise;
I don't have to
accept your blame.
When it all
hits the fan
don't blame me.

You cannot live
without desires &
desires shape &
form everything.
*
*

Small minds
desire
small things.
*
*

Dad: "I'm as free of money as a frog is of feathers.
Son: "Hey Dad, frogs don't have feathers."
Dad: 'Right!"
*
*

When the shit hits the fan, no longer will ones wealth be calculated in dollars. The new currency will be called morality.
*
*

It is high maintenance
to exist as a shape & form.
*
*

Shape & form
is the
food of time.
*
*

The only way to escape
the ravages of time
is to revert back
to your formless state.
*
*

If you don't give
you don't get.

I wait until I am asked.
When you ask, I will
not keep you waiting.
*
*

Doctors live on disease.
Dentists live on tooth decay.
I live on ignorance.
*
*

If you think the world
is such a great place,
what am I doing here?
*
*

If you're still looking to help people,
you obviously haven't helped yourself.

All dramas
will create
problems
for you.
*

If you are
not going to
ask me who I am,
then I will.
*

The more one is
living it
the less they are
talking about it.
*

World saviors don't talk.
They're too busy doing.
*

The divorce rate would
go down tremendously
were people to get
married to themselves
rather than to each other.
I promise to
love, honor &
obey mySelf.
*

Only the destructible
lives in fear of survival.
*

If you were
born ugly
there's not
much difference
when you're old.
If you born pretty
there will be a lot
of adjustments to be made.
*

It's all
in the
present.
*

Interest
breeds
interest.
*

Life's experience
is talking.
*

Life is
one big
experiment.
*

If you
want more
from life
than the basics,
then you are in trouble.
*

You don't exist
when I close my eyes.
You exist when
I open my eyes.
*

The kind of power that
I'm talking about takes
incredible courage to manifest.
There is not a man alive
who it does not reside in.
*

The Question is;
Do you have
what it takes?
*

To attain
the greater
you have to
give up
the lesser.
*

What are you
interested in?
Are you interested in
endless creation
or destruction?
*

Question:
What are you not willing to give up?
*

One has to
maintain their integrity
wherever they live.
*

I don't change,
time changes.
*

While people are still
talking about it
nothing will change.
*


Photobucket

*

Acceptance
This too
shall pass.
*

Empires come & go.
And what about the
New World Order,
what happened to
the old?
*

Everything I suffered,
everything I gave up,
everything I attained,
I offered for free,
no one wanted it.
Therefore, I will give
you what you want -
Ask and you shall receive it.
*

The only way to get the fox
out of the trap was to kill it.
There are many traps in life,
hence death is necessary.
*

If you want this
you have to give up that.
I gave up this life
for that.
*

Happiness or sadness
has no sway over me.
*

You can put your childish toys away
and move on, or the times will take
them away from you, regardless.
*

It's very simple,
it's either
this
or
that.
*



Photobucket

Inner security~
Where else will you find it?
*

I look in awe.
I am unable to
describe what I see.
It stuns me.
My mind maintains
silence in its presence.
It is intelligent enough to know that.
*

When the laws of the land
are in tune & in keeping,
with the laws of Nature,
societies grow & flourish
in a peaceful way.

You are either awake or asleep;
there are no half-measures.

















The Mantra is
a vibration of
ones' Natural State.
















"How can you be the Guru,
you don't fit the mold?"
"Exactly!"

















Awareness of the situation creates options.
Ignorance of the situation creates choices.

















The Guru is
your very Self.
the Guru is the
Grace Bestowing
Power of God.














The Light of God.
The Guru is the
Power that drives it.













I AM
the Light
of God.



















The puppet can only do what the string puller tells him. It is not the puppets fault that he becomes boring, it is the puppeteers limitation.





















When money becomes God,
Faith will be tested.




















A man in the Outback once asked me,
"Do you believe in God?"
"Yes", I said.
"How much money do you have?"
"About $500." says I
"Why?"
"Just in case.", I said.
At that moment a decision was made.
























When the search in concluded
and the results are the same ~
There is only one.





















When it happens,
I guarantee you,
it will not
be on the internet.

AN INTERVIEW WITH GURU OM




AN INTERVIEW WITH GURU OM
>><<
Do you mind my asking you a few questions about the tattoos on your head?

Q: Why did you tattoo your head in the first place?

A: When I first came here, to America, twenty-seven years ago, it was not to achieve name and fame as most people do, nor was it for the fulfillment of desires. I came here to warn people of the pending doom that was rushing from the future into the present if they did not change their ways.

Q: Did people heed your warnings?

A: No, in fact, I was labeled a Prophet of Doom and ridiculed.

Q: Did that bother you?

A: Not in the least, speaking the truth has never bothered me, it simply made me more determined.

Q: What was your next course of action?

A: Well, I contemplated what to do next for quite a while before I decided to tattoo the Truth on my head. Actually, there is a story of a promise that I made when I was saved from drowning when I was a little boy.

Q: That must have been very painful for you.

A: Yes it was, but not as painful as what mankind is on the brink of going through now.

Q: In what way?

A: Twenty-seven years ago I said, Eighty-five percent of humanity is going to be wiped of the face of this Earth. The only way that the remaining fifteen percent is going to survive is through unconditioned Love.

Q: That sounds quite extreme to me.

A: Yes, you and billions more. In the twenty-five years since I tattooed the Formula for the Destruction of Ignorance on my head only three people have asked me what it meant . One was a stranger who walked across the street to ask me, one was a drunk and the other worked in a Post Office.

Q: Why do you think that is?

A: The pain and suffering isn't great enough yet but it's getting there.

Q: How can you be sure that is going to happen?

A: I saw it twenty-five years ago in meditation whilst living in the outback of Australia. It took me five years to understand it. Whatever I see in meditation, as regards mankind, always happens. It hasn't let me down yet.

Q: Did tattooing the Formula for the Destruction of Ignorance on your head change your life?

A: Yes, it ruined my worldly life. It shattered my few remaining fantasies, one of which was that people would be interested in their own survival. I also found out that I was not a world savior. (I saved myself)  My commitment is to the death.

Q: Are you sorry you did it.

A: No, I am at peace with myself. I have no regrets. I have one desire which is Peace on earth and good will between all mankind. Will you support my desire?

Q: How do I do that?

A: There is an ocean of peace within each and every one of us. When you are ready to support my desire you will manifest that peace within yourself.

Q: I don't feel like I have much peace within myself, so what can I do?

A: Plenty. Find out what disturbs your peace and get rid of it.

Q: Easier said than done.

A: Easier done than said.

Q: Can we talk about the meaning of the symbols on your head?

A: Of course.

Q: The red dot.

A: The red dot is symbolic of the sun. In the beginning was the void. Without the sun there would be no life on this earth. Without life on this earth there would be no one to ask about God.

Q: The crescent moon below the sun, what does that stand for?

A : In the beginning, the Earth was covered in water. Without the moon it would revert back to its original state.

Q: Below the crescent moon there are three lines?

A: Yes, the three lines stand for Creation, Sustenance, and my favorite, Destruction. That is the foundation of the mind; it creates an idea, plays with it for a while and then destroys it.

Q: I like the green star above the Sun, what does that represent?

A: The green star symbolizes the Pole Star. It is the only Star in the Universe that does not move. Knowledge of the Stars and Planets can be understood by meditating on the Pole Star.

Q: What about the two snakes wrapped around your head, what do they mean?

A: One is called Ida and the other is called Pingala. They represent the in-breath and the out-breath. For example, let me ask you a question, are you breathing?

Q: Yes.

A: Good, then you should be able to stop for twenty minutes, Right?

Q: Wrong, I couldn't do that.

A: Then does that not imply that you are not breathing? Breathing is going on even when you're asleep. And you imagine that your doing it? Which also implies, if you were responsible for breathing and you forgot about it because you were involved in an interesting action you would die, and so would every one else who believed as you do.

Q : What about the Mandala on the top of your head!

A: Yes, the top of the head is where the Nectar is. It is also called The Garden Of Eden. The seven stars around the mandala represent the seven major planets.

Q: The two symbols above your eyes look like writing to me, am I correct?

A: Yes, you are quite correct. They read HAM & SAH which means,
I AM THAT I AM.
It is also the divine sound the breath makes as it is sucked in and out of the body due to the void at the end of each breath. But, from the stand point of reality there is only one void.
The sound the breath makes, as it moves in and out of the body, is the music of God, (This goes beyond the prison of religion). Those who do not hear the music are sleep walkers, dead men walking. When the breath exits the body no one can guarantee that it will re-enter and thus sustain life. No one ever gives it a second thought. Were the breath to not stop, once it had filled up the lungs, would they not explode? Man in his ignorance, claims, that he is controlling this Divine Play.

Q: On the back of your head I see a cobra surrounded with flames. There is also writing above the fire,what does that mean?

A: That is the Kundalini Naga (Snake). Once the Guru awakens her she makes her way up the inner core of the spine (the Sushumna) to the top of the head. Her only desire is to re-unite with her Lord, Shiva her consort. The Sanskrit writing above the flames reads,

THE GURU IS THE GRACE BESTOWING POWER OF GOD.

There you have it in a child-like simple way.
The truth is never complicated.
It is available to all who seek it.

Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. (Knocking is attention)

Destruction of Ignorance is the Birth of Enlightenment.

I AM in your every breath.

God dwells within you as you.

God exists in your feelings


PEACE ON EARTH AND GOOD WILL AMONG ALL MANKIND.

To learn
you have to put yourself
in a vulnerable position.





















Pain & suffering will never let you down. It is the great mover. The motivator for the ignorant; but how many are moved out of love.

























The only thing a good person & a bad person have in common is death. Death is guaranteed. How you die is not.
























Enlightenment
has nothing to do
with surviving as
a name, shape & a form.






















America, is the same
as all other societies
in a pain/pleasure society.
It chases pleasure &
runs away from pain.





















Liking pleasure & not liking pain.
There is an addiction to pleasure.





















I stand
for what you
need to take
care of
but you have
your own agenda.
Don't expect me
to sit down.























Live & let live,
remember?
Do no harm.






















Lack of morality means
you have not risen above
animal status.
Therefore,
don't try to
convince me
you're human.
























Enlightenment
is unimaginable.
It may manifest at an
inconvenient time.






















You can't have a world without Creation, Sustenance & Destruction. The destroyer destroys & the Creator Creates out of the Destroyers destruction. The Sustainer gives sustenance to the game.

























A lifetime
only lasts
so long;
it's limited.
























People only want to know about the things they can control. Let's be honest; what can you control?

























All of life
is preparation
for that
one moment &
no one can stop
that moment
from happening.






















Dragging the
burden of anger
all through life.





















You prepare
yourself
by knowing
you can't
change it.





















I come
like a
thief
in the
night.























I know what's
important in life.
I know what
I won't do.





















Ignorance
doesn't
want
to die.





















Hard work
is not easy.



















You can
live in heaven
any time
you want.




















If you want
Enlightenment
you have
to give up
ignorance.





















There is no drama
in Enlightenment.






















It costs one
a lot
for
the
Truth.























If you haven't
helped yourself
then you're
using people
as guinea pigs
when you try
to help them.






















The higher you go,
the lower you will sink.





















In order to dream
you have to
go to sleep &
you like dreaming.



















The world of sleep
is not much different
to the waking state.



















The dreams
go along
with the
nightmares.

Interest & resistance

life of strength & integrity
& end up weak.
In my company,
you will know
how you've
lived your life.



























The reward for living
a life of integrity is

What makes

appear
to be real?
Excessive

will burn all
the bridges
behind you.






















Delving into
ones own
mystery.




















Outside the realm
of the minds'
imagination.



















The profit doesn't
trickle down
but the debt does.
Am I missing something?




















When there is a problem
& you can't solve it;
you become part of it.























Perfection
doesn't include
imperfection to the
eyes of ignorance.

























If it doesn't come out of love
how can there be any goodness in it.
























Music is an integral
part of the culture.
Sweet music &
sweet people
are inseparable.

























There is no difference
between water and God.
You can't live without
either of them.


























God is consciousness.
The Sun is proof of that.


























Nothing can happen until
the connection is made.

























Society is like a car.
It won't go for long
when the timing is out.

























You only know you have
an addiction when what
you're addicted to
is taken away.


























Free Speech comes
from living a life
of discipline, otherwise
it's simply drivel.

























Violate your constitution
and lose your freedom.
Once the constitution is violated,
martial law is the next step.
With martial law
comes military thinking.
Military thinking
is based
on discipline.





























It is the responsibility of the people to ensure that the politicians do not become corrupt. If you don't take care of your responsibility, don't expect the Government to perform theirs.



























A mans' life exists
in one moment,
held together by
time & place.
























You will not survive with a
'what next'.
Survival depends on
'what now?'
'Now what'?

When one gets' rid of 'next' -
there is no 'next moment'
which means you're living
in the moment.


























How big a problem does America have with drugs? That will tell you how many armed gangs there are in this Society who have killed & will kill again.


























Whatever comes up
is a possibility.

























They
are prisoners
of greed & corruption.

























When you are
not displaying
human qualities
then you are
not human.
























Everyone alive
on this Planet today
is your Soul mate.
Why waste your time looking
for one when you can
have the lot.

When you want something
you do not deserve
you get it without working for it;
you open the door to all sorts

The truth doesn't necessarily

RE-INCARNATION ~ WHAT IS IT REALLY?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J__kLNLIPpA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7tlg_HiZsc

Reincarnation is not
of the body & the person.
Once that's dead
it's gone forever ~ Amen!
Desires & thoughts
are what reincarnate.
*


Going beyond your
self-created limitations
is called incarnation.
Re-incarnation is nothing more
than recreating the same old problems.

*


Reincarnation
is for the
ignorant.
*



Look to your own mind
and see how many times
the same thought
has arisen,
in your life.
*


Once one knows that
comings & goings are
Godly, what need is there
of concern?
*


The weak
are purposely 'helped'
into power positions.
The 'unseen'
manipulate them
at will.
*


Politics were not designed for the benefit of the people. You elect a politician and send him to Congress with the expectation that he is going to represent your welfare. When you find out that he's not representing your welfare then there's only one other move on the board. Go there and represent yourself.
*


When you want something you do not deserve & you get it without working for it, you open the door to all sorts of disembodied entities.
*


How can you
have your cake
and eat it?
Once you eat it,
it's gone.
*


Unstable minds create
crazy ideas.
Stable minds create
intelligent ideas.
*


Killing is not an
intelligent idea.
*


If you are not doing
what you love in life
how can your expect
happiness to come to you?
*


My love manifests as
DESTRUCTION
OF
IGNORANCE.
*


Destruction of ignorance
is the Birth of Enlightenment.
*


Each age has its' own laws of Nature, totally unique to it. Have you ever noticed the level of violence manifesting in Society (& that's with mans' laws in place.) What is it going to be like when Nature overrides mans' laws, so they don't exist anymore.
*

Study the laws of a country and they will reveal the peoples weaknesses. The more laws, the weaker the Society.
*


There are no
such thing
as choices
for a
prisoner of the mind.
Whatever you
are not aware of
is deciding
& choosing for you
all the time.
*


Everyone lays
on their deathbed
each night.
No one can
guarantee that they
are going to
wake up
in the morning.
*


Quick fixes
never work
for anyone.
*


If there is nothing for
fear to feed on,
then how can it
live with you?
*

All problems
are self-created.
*


Awareness is light.
Shine the light
on the shadows
 of your life.
 *

Nothing is
as is
appears
to be.
*


No one is
who they imagine
themselves to be.
Stop imagining,
and see yourself
as you truly are.
*


The man who says
"I know who I am now"
is just as deluded
as the man who says,
"I don't know who I am."
*


Moths don't fly
around burnt-out candles.
*


Light creates fire
& fire gives light.
*

Take the limited
and dissolve it
in the unlimited
& live.
*

Ignorance is
blindness
not bliss.
*

Politically Correct:
Whoever controls
the language
controls
the people.
*

All forms of
dependency
end in misery.
*


Whoever controls
the food & water supply
controls the people.
Where does the idea
of freedom
come into it?
*

Convince a prisoner
that he is actually free
& you won't have
any problems with him.
*

I have nothing
to protect and
nothing to hide.
*


If you are interested
in finding out
whether a politician
is lying to you or not,
watch his tongue.
If it moves,
know that he is lying.
*

Once you stop worrying
about yourself
know that you are
making progress.
*


The man of wisdom
knows he is
no better
than
a dog.
*



If you want to know the man, study his dog.
It will tell you everything you need to know.
The dog will manifest what the man hides.  
It has not mastered the art of deceit.
*


Don't expect to receive what you can't give.
If you want attention, learn how to give it.
If you want my attention, you have to pay in a currency that I demand. I use the currency called ATTENTION.
Pay me 5% of your attention and you get 5% knowledge.
Pay me 100% of your attention and get the lot.
Now, there's a challenge worth picking up.
At 4 years of age I was given this knowledge directly from within. No books or intermediaries were necessary. What was necessary were the right conditions.
The right conditions manifested as putting myself in the Atlantic Ocean not knowing how to swim. After going down for the second time, I can assure you, my full attention was on God, or so I believed, until I went down for the third time and found the last remaining units of attention. In that moment,
I became 100% present & correct.
*


Once you are in that
space of Unconditioned Love,
do not allow anything
to re-condition it.
*


I love myself
in spite of,
not because of.
*


All of those who say,"Absolutely, I agree!"
have no idea what I am talking about.
Only the man who has looked
into the eyes of the God of Death
will know what I am talking about.
*


Death is psychological.
It is necessary for Birth.
Birth & Death
depend on each other.
The root cause of fear
is Birth and Death.
*


In my life, I have been told many times, "If you do this (or that) something bad will happen." My answer was then, as is now, "Good, I can hardly wait."
'IF' is the tool of emotional blackmail and fantasy.
*


Don't become an old shoe,
just because they're comfortable.
Discipline your mind
& break in the new.
*

For knowledge to manifest,
a catalyst is required.
A catalyst is that
which causes
direct transmutation
without itself
becoming contaminated.
*


Knowledge is
an addiction.
Wisdom is
a necessity.
*


This Planet was highly capable of supporting, minimum, 12 Billion people, were we not to demand more than the basics. The more greed manifests, the less people the Planet is capable of supporting.
*


Once you hear people talking
about the effects of Global Warming,
know that it's already too late!
*


The Future has a nasty habit
of rushing into the Now.
*


There is no security
in an insecure world.
The world hangs by a thread.
Deny it reality and be free of it.
(but do not then expect it to give you anything,
other than the basics,
which is all you are entitled to.)
*


It is not possible to kill a man who has no fear of Death. He will willingly donate his life to his Society & what he believes in, namely his God.
*


Terrorists are evil necessities. They introduce man to his fear. They strike the bell of fear in the hearts of men. No fear, no terrorists; no terrorists, no fear. They are reflections of mans fear. Most times, men who are committed to the death for what they believe in are seen as terrorists.
*


To survive a terrorist attack,
a man must be wholeheartedly
willing to donate his life to his God.
*

A true devotee of God is a terrorist to ignorance.
Just seeing him strikes terror in the dried-up heart.
*


One can only torture
the lover of Gods' body,
not the Being.
The Being lies beyond
torture & comfort.
*


When people criticize every word you utter,
it's a sure sign that you're correct.
*


Right & wrong
Good & bad
Should &
shouldn't
Holy & evil
are childish toys
that the mind has
not given up yet.
*

There is no such thing a
 'your mind' & 'my mind.'
There is consciousness.
A frightened horse wears blinkers.
Blinkers restrict vision.
Remove your blinkers,
challenge your fear,
& see God everywhere,
in all things, at all times.
*


The God-conscious mind
never loses contact with God.
*


There is no such thing as 'unconscious'.
Unconscious simply means 'not-remembering'.
*


Beyond name, shape & form there
is no such thing as fear & loss.
*


I do not care who believes or disbelieves me.
Belief systems are for time & circumstance.
Better to prove me wrong.
In order to do that, you will have to
dive into the Ocean of Love.
That action can only improve proof.
*


The mind is a springboard.
Dive off, into the Ocean of Love
which lies at the center of
every ones heart.
*


Do not conduct business in the House of God or the tables may be turned on you.
In India, people ask me for money. I ask them, "Do you go to the bank and ask for Blessings?" They answer, "No." "Then why come to me and ask for money?"
The bank is the God of money. Don't ask God for money. Earn the Guru's Grace and become the richest man on the Planet.
*

To know God, go beyond your concepts of Him.
Do not mistake your concept for the Real Thing!
The Real Thing will chop off your head
with the sword of Love & Compassion.
*


I manifest as a
Thief in the night.
Make sure you lock
up your ignorance or
I will steal it.
Don't forget,
the key to the
prison of ignorance
is the same key
that opens the
door to freedom.
*


Knock & the door
will be opened up unto you.
Attention is knocking.
*


Dreams are only echos
of your waking state.
*


A Societies indifference to
the suffering of others
will bring suffering
to that societies door.
*


Hunger will
let you know
when the shit
has hit the fan.
*


The terrible thing
about being a monk is
you can't let your hair down
every now & again.
*

'Fuck off!' is a powerful mantra.
It is well-known as a game-changer.
It gets rid of all doubts.
*


Eventually one cannot live without commitment.
Those who are not committed,
they don't even know they're alive.
What are you committed to?

So how are you going to die

You are as close to Reality
as you're ever going to get
without giving up your illusions.




















The insanity
of it all.






















The Guru
cracks the nut
of the ego.
























A poor man has a
much better sleep
than the rich man.
The poor man has
nothing to steal.
























Nothing will change while the system of Government stays the same. The only ones who can change the system of Government is the people.


























People who have done
a lot of hard work
have a strong character.

























I relieve
peoples' suffering
by not adding to it.

























You can only remember
the past NOW.
You can only imagine
the future NOW.
Everyone is
in the NOW.


























Trust no future
however sweet.



























When you reach a stage
where there's
nowhere to go,
you'll find out
there's nowhere
to come back to.
In order to come back
you have to go.




























People are not interested in the unknown
because they have never experienced it,
therefore, they don't trust it.




























Do understand, there can be no chicken without an egg. There can be no egg without a chicken. Only a fool would ask, "What came first the chicken or the egg?" They appear and disappear together as one.































If there wasn't such a thing as 'God', Then why do we have a word 'God'? Years ago there was no such thing as space travel. We made a 'rocket' and the word 'rocket' became part of our vocabulary. When we didn't have the word 'car' in our language, there was no such thing as 'cars'. God and the word 'God' are inseparable.






























Chasing happiness
is a fools game.
Keep still &
it will manifest
of its own accord.


























Myself,
I would like
everyone
to be
happy.


























When one is doing
what they truly love
there is no such thing as time.





























Love is not time-bound.
It is a timeless state.


























Everyone
has experienced
love in
their life.

























Love & God
are inseparable.

























Whatever you need in life,
it will be there for you
when you need it.
You brought it with you
when you appeared.



























Once you mortgage your life to something,
don't complain that you have no time.

























If you would like your life to change,
first you have to know what
you would like it to change to.



























Before change, your work
is in the imagination.
After change,
you deal with facts.































I used to think I knew everything that was going on in my life & where I was going, until I took Sanyas. From then on, I realized nothing. That was 23 years ago. Today I know even less.






























If you see me through a quiet & disciplined mind you will have instant recognition of me as I AM. If you see me through an undisciplined mind that is fraught with waves, then you will see me as you want to see me. How I appear to you is none of my business.





























Look at your reflection
in a pool of water &
then throw a stone in the water &
tell me what the difference is.
That is the difference between
a disciplined mind & an
undisciplined mind.





























I appears & the world appears.
I disappears & the world disappears.
That is the nature of appearances.


























I don't need a car.
The body needs a car.




























I had a hard time with this one.
That was difficult for me, years ago,
seeing myself in others & others in myself.


























There is
only one.




























Needing anything
to make you happy
is a failure.
Relying on anything
time-bound
for your happiness
is doomed to failure.
















Photobucket

















Hard times foster
a good attitude.
























You don't have
to die
to be dead.






















If there's nowhere to go
where's the need of a vehicle?



























You can't work on yourself,
the Self is working on you
all the time.
You may forget it
but it won't forget you.





















What is life
without
discipline?

There are many beautiful mantras
that will open the human heart.
The most potent one
is a simple 'thank you'.















A man once said to me,
"I notice you talk to yourself."
"Yes", said I.
"And I will continue
to do so until I find
someone more intelligent."


















Once one introduces
the mind to its source
it will always return home.

















Comprehension is
the difference
between the
animal & man.




















My awareness of it
puts it right.





















If you can't
change it
then train
your mind
to accept it.



















Responsibility;
To respond
how the
situation wants.





















If it has to be like that
it's an obsession.
If you like it like that
it's a well-ordered mind.























No breath
No language.























Fraud? Fraud?...
How about treason?
























First,
they take the jobs away
to dis-empower the people.




























Photobucket
Once you look in my eyes,
it's all finished-
I act out the part.























Learn how to give;
if you want to survive.

Focus
on one thing
intently
and you will get it.
Focus
on the whole,
lovingly, &
you will get everything.




















True compassion means
leaving them alone.
























Only the corruptible
can be corrupted.





















When you've done your best
and it's not enough,
move on.
Once you've done your best,
if you don't get the desired result,
all you can do is move on.























Everyone
has a voice.
Use it wisely.
It is a
Divine Instrument.






















Once a man said to me,
"I never hear the voice of God."
I asked him,
"Have you ever stopped talking
long enough to hear it?"
























You have the power to stand for it or not. I stand for the destruction of ignorance in whatever shape and form it takes.
I know no other way.
I am not programmed.
I have always been like this.
























Once you stop desiring results,
then there is no need to do your best.
You, yourself, will be the end result
which is what you were
before you went to sleep.






















Live
and
let
live.





















Do
no
harm.






















America will never
be invaded
while there is
electricity.























True happiness in incredibly intense.
Are you really sure you want it?
After all, it is there
for the taking,
when you so decide.





















There is no solution
save total destruction.

MORE TALES FROM THE OUTBACK OF NSW

Photobucket
(I’ve only been resting about an hour,
when I hear Defoes’ loud Australian voice
booming and echoing through the Army-style barracks.)

DEFOE
Get out of those fart sacks you pommy fucking bastards! It’s time to eat, that’s if you mummies little darlings are not too fucking tired! (As he walks down the line of beds he says;)
Who the fucking hell took it upon themselves to clean up the fucking outer-dairy-yard without fucking asking first? Which one of you pack ‘a pommy bastards did it?
YORKY
I did. (in a nervous voice.)

DEFOE
What do you mean ‘I DID’, you little fucking pipsqueak? Who the fucking hell helped you?

YORKY
No one. I saw it hadn’t been done and it needed doing. I’m the one to blame.

(Defoe strides down the shed and stands in front of me.)

DEFOE
Show me you hands.

(I open mi hands. There are about 6 or 8 blisters on them.)

I would not have believed it unless I saw it with mi own eyes. Perhaps I misjudged you, ya scrawny looking Pommy bastard. That's what I like to see.

(He roars as he stands in front of me, looking back down the line. Then he turns to me.)

Good lad, you’re going to make it in the bush. Now go outside and piss on your hands. That’ll heal your blisters and toughen ‘em up. Where’s that ugly little bastard called Morris, and that big curly-headed pufta called Dave? Ah, there you are. You two can take the little bastards job in the kitchen and if you can work as good as him I’ll git ya a job in the Bush. Now fucking move you limey bastards, ya dinners getting cold!


(After the meal we all sit around a bit. Some of us talk and some of us write letters home to our families. At about 9 O’clock the lights in the large Nissan hut are turned out and we all try to get a good nights sleep.)

(Early the next morning I can no longer rest so I get up and dress myself in mi work clothes ready for my first days work. Just for a joke I grab mi old trumpet from under the bed. I pop the locks, put the mouthpiece in, then with a great lung full of air I blow the morning Reveille.)

BOY
Oh shit! Put that fucking trumpet away Titch. It’s only 5 O'clock!

(A few seconds later 2 or 3 pillows come flying across the room in my general direction. Then a large work-boot with a rubber heel bounces at my feet.)

YORKY
Alright boys. Just a little joke, but don’t let Defoe catch you in bed ‘cause he’s likely to do anything, you know.

(At 6 O’clock we were all in the kitchen tucking into a large plate of lamb chops, eggs, bacon and toast and a tin mug of piping hot tea. Defoe comes into the kitchen, gets himself a large plate of breakfast, then disappears back outside again. After breakfast we all go back to our beds for an extra few minutes lay down while our big breakfast digests. It is not long before Defoes’ big, rough head appears in the doorway.)

DEFOE
Alright you Pommy fucking bastards,on your fucking feet. Time to go to work! Who blew that fucking trumpet this morning?

YORKY
I did.

DEFOE
Get it out and play me a tune, Squirt.

(I pull out the trumpet and play Defoe a couple of Trad songs, then just for fun I play the theme music to the Lone Ranger. Defoe seems to love the trumpet and when I put it away he comes over and says)

Why do you want to work on a farm in the bush ,squirt?

YORKY
‘Cause I can’t get it out of mi head. Ever since I knew it was possible for me to come out here to Australia, that’s all I ever wanted to do.

DEFOE
I’ll get you a job in the Army Cadets and after that you’ll get bumped up to the regular Army. You’ll make real good money and you won’t have to go through any shit in the Army band. You could make yourself a real beaut career out‘a music, Squirt. So have a good think about it, alright?

YORKY
I can tell ya right now Mr. Defoe, I don’t want to join any Army band. I just want to get out to the Bush and work on a farm.

DEFOE
Just think about it.
(He turns and walks out of the Nissan hut)

(That day we all busy ourselves milking cows, driving tractors, cleaning the place up and whatever jobs one generally does around a farm. In the afternoon Defoe says to us boys)

DEFOE
Can any of you lot ride a horse?
(A couple of the boys raise their hands).

Go and catch old Patches over there and saddle him up. You can all take turns in riding him. It’ll give you a bit of experience in case you need it some time.

(Patches is a big, strong-looking black & white Gelding. One of the boys throws a saddle across him and is trying to do up the cinch.)

DEFOE
Not like that ya Pommy bastard!. Go back in the barn and get me a saddle blanket.

(As soon as the boy returns, Defoe places the saddle blanket over old Patches back.Then he throw the Aussie Stock Saddle on the top of the blanket as he says,)

Don’t forget to pull the far side stirrup iron over the saddle,’cause if ya don’t, when ya throw the saddle over him the stirrup iron will hit him under the guts and that’ll spook him and make him kick. This old horse has seen more Pommy bastards then any other horse alive in Australia today and he’s not particularly fond of ‘em. So watch him cause he’s not afraid of kicking and he doesn’t mind biting a piece of Pommy arse now and again. Once the saddle is in place, once you’ve got the cinch up tight, walk him around a bit because he’s a cunning old bastard. He’ll puff his belly out to make you believe the cinch is tight and when you go to mount him he’ll let the air out and you and the saddle will go arse over head in the dirt,OK? Now after you’ve walked him around a bit, if he still keeps his belly puffed out ya give him a real good swift kick in the guts like this.

(Defoe kicks Patches right in the guts and in turn Patches kicks up both of his back legs high in the air and Defoe pulls hard on the cinch .)

Now you’re ready to mount, so watch carefully or you’ll get bit on the arse. You always mount from the left-hand side, and make sure ya hold the far-side rein tight so he can’t bite ya. Ya put ya left foot in the stirrup and then ya swing ya leg up and over in one easy movement like this.

DEFOE
(Defoe is now looming above us as he sits astride Patches.)

Ya give him a good, firm dig with the heel of ya boot, then away ya go, mate.
(After he walks Patches around the yard for a while, he gets off.)
Alright Squirt, hop on ‘im and have a go mate.

(I’d only ever ridden a donkey on Blackpool Beach as a kid for sixpence a ride but I take a deep breath and with great determination I stride up to Patches who put his head down as soon as he sees me approach him.

Grab those reins tight, Squirt! Pull on the far side one until he lifts his head up again!

(As I pulled on the rein, Patches swung his massive head around and tried to bite my bony little arse.)

Look out Squirt! The mean old bastard will have a piece of ya arse if ya not careful mate.”

(All the boys laugh. Patches knows he’s the center of everyones attention, He swings his head around for another go at my arse.)

That stirrup iron is too long for ya Squirt, so adjust the strap like his mate. That’s good enough mate. I’ll do the other side for ya.. Git up on him and watch out for the cunning old bastard. He’s likely to do anything. You got to be thinking one step ahead of that old bastard ‘cause if not, he’ll take over and run the fucking show on ya!

(I mount Patches just like I’d seen on the cowboy shows. I give him a couple of good kicks with the heel of mi boots and Patches starts to walk around.)

Good on ya Squirt.That’s the idea. He’s real hard in the mouth so you’ve got to ride him and show him who’s boss ‘cause if not he’ll take over. Oy! open that gate ya curly-headed pufta so the Squirt can go for a ride in the cow paddock.

(Dave opens the gate and Patches and me ride through into the paddock.)

Go down to the bottom of the paddock and keep ya wits about ya.

(Down the sloping paddock me and Patches ride.)

YORKY (VO)
This is a piece of cake!
(Cowboy Dick rides along with one arm down at his side.)

What a great life it is, riding the Bush Range in Australia. Maybe I’ll get misen a job droving cattle around the Bush now that I can ride a horse.

(We reach the bottom of the long paddock. I’m still fantasizing misen as a cowboy. I almost pull out one of mi imaginary six-guns that are slung low at mi hips. Just then Patches turns around, totally unexpected, and takes off back up the paddock at full speed. All I can do is hang on as mi new bush hat flies off mi head into nowhere. Faster and faster Patches gallops up the field. I’m shit-scared but at the same time the excitement of the gallop is amazing.)

Oh oh! Now what do I do? 30 or 40 yards ahead of me is the barbwire fence where all the boys stand cheering and yahooing.

DEFOE
Ride the old bastard!

BOYS
Yahoo!


(The fence now looms dangerously close and my fantasies are long gone. All of a sudden Patches applies the horse brakes and I see misen flying through the air, headlong over the fence. The next thing I remember is Defoe pulling me up onto mi feet. The back of mi head has a throbbing, dull ache in it and mi arse feels like someone has just kicked it with a size 10 boot.)

DEFOE
Jeesus bloody christ mate! What the fuck are ya playing at! You’re supposed to stop when the horse stops! You’ll bloody well hurt ya self getting off a horse that way. Now git back up on the old bastard and try it again.

YORKY
I don’t think I’m cut out for riding horses Mr. Defoe.

DEFOE
Fucking bullshit lad. You’ll make a fucking good jockey if ya stop eating. Now git back on him ‘cause if ya don’t you’ll end up scared of horses, and if ya scared of horses ya rooted for Bush life.

(Someone catches Patches and hands me the reins. Defoe gives me a leg up.)

Now watch the old bastard. He thinks he’s got it all over ya !

(Defoe is absolutely right ‘cause as soon as we go through the gate into the paddock Patches refuses to go anywhere.)

Give the rotten old bastard a decent kick in the guts!

(The heel of my boots makes contact with Patches sides. He did not take a liking to this command, so he decides to buck. Up on his hind legs he stands. Then he goes down again and at the same time he kicks his back legs high in the air.)

BOYS
YaHoo! Ride him cowboy!

DEFOE
Show the bastard what you’re made of Pommy!

(I give Patches another good command. Up and down he goes, kicking and bucking for his worth. My arse and knees are now feeling the pain as Patches continues to try to hurl me to the ground again.)

Make the bastard go down the paddock again!

(By sheer willpower I get old Patches to walk forwards and down the paddock again, only this time there are no cowboy fantasies playing around in my head, only the dull throbbing ache. When we get to the bottom of the paddock I am one step ahead of Patches. I now know what Defoe is trying to teach me. Instead of letting Patches run the show, I hold the reins in tight so he can’t have his head. After a few seconds I say to Patches in mi broad Yorkshire accent,)

YORKY
OK Patches, you fucking old bastard, this time I’m running the fucking show! Now move you Aussie bastard! Yahhhh!!!!”

(Patches needs no command from my boot heel but I give him one anyway just to let him know who'se boss. Off we go at full gallop. I give him another good heel and for good measure I give him a hefty slap on his arse with mi right hand. Yah! I yelled at the top of mi voice as Patches thunders back up the long paddock. We pass my new Bush hat and for a split second I think I might lean down and snatch it from the ground like a Russian Cossack but dismiss the thought at once.)

Yah!!!!

(Up the paddock we gallop, the barb wire fence is now getting closer. As we get about 10 feet away from it, Patches applies the brakes and this time I lean back in the saddle and pull on the left hand rein with mi feet stuck out at the front. Patches does not like this at all so he gives a few good bucks to show his disapproval.)

DEFOE
You’ve got it all over him now, Squirt. Ride him back here so one these other puftas can show off his horsmanship!

(I dismount and Patches swings his head around to bite my arse and gives me a look of disapproval)


DEFOE
Good on ya mate. We’ll make a fucking good Bushman out of you yet Squirt. Where ya from in England Mate?

YORKY
I’m from Yorkshire, Mr. Defoe.

DEFOE
Well, in that case mate, I’ll just call ya ‘Yorky’ from now on and you can call me Bill. We can do away with that Mr. Defoe bullshit, ‘cause you’ve earned it lad. Now ya can lean on the fence and watch Patches give that ugly little bastard Morris a good fucking workout. Come on Yorky.

Come here Morris you ugly little fucking pufta! Up you fucking go mate and show us what ya made of!

(It felt very strange at first to call him Bill, but before long, I start to feel what it was like to be called a man.)


(That evening, after dinner, we hire a couple of taxis and go own to Cabramatta to check out the town. The Taxis arrive and we all pile in on top of each other. As we pull out of the farm Defoe appears.)


DEFOE
Keep ya fucking noses and cocks clean. I don’t want any of you pommy bastards coming home with a dose of clap. This is a fucking training farm not a fucking hospital! So, don’t go rooting around ‘cause there’s a few loose sheilas around Cabramatta. And don’t git in a fight with those bodgies and fucking widgies!
Fucking puftas! (He says to himself as the taxi drives away.)



GREEK TAXI DRIVER
Where ya lika go?

RALPH (Older boy)
Drop us off where the action is.

TAXI DRIVER
Not a problem mate. We’re overloaded, so if ya see the cops keep ya heads down or I’ll lose mi license.

(The Taxi Driver drops us off in Cabramattas’ main street. There’s not much happening so we buy some milkshakes and walk up and down the street looking in the shop windows. When we come to another café I go inside and buy misen 2 –2 oz. Packets of Havelock rolling tobacco. I can’t pass it up because it only costs 7 Aussie bob a packet. I see an Army Disposal store and I go in. I know exactly what I am looking for.)


SHOPKEEPER
G'day sport.What can I do for you mate?

YORKY
I’m looking for a sheath knife.

SHOPKEEPER
No worries mate, I’ve got sheath knives coming out the Yazoo. Have a Captain Cook at some ‘a these, sport. Ya bound to find a beauty in that case. Give us a holler if ya need some help.

YORK
I’ll take this one.

SHOPKEEPER
That’s a good-looking knife, sport.
She’s got a beaut blade on her. That’ll set ya back 2 quid, mate.

(I pay the man his 2 pounds which leaves me with 15 shillings to mi name)


SHOPKEEPER
Look after yourself mate and don’t get that knife tangled up with a ‘Dago’.

YORKY
What’s a Dago?

SHOPKEEPER
Christ, mate. Where the bloody hell have you been all ya life? Did ya just arrive on the last boat?

YORKY
Yes. I’ve only been in Australia for two days.


SHOPKEEPER
Gawd streuth mate! You pommys are coming out here younger every year. I suppose ya all work up at the Big Brothers dairy farm, do ya?

YORKY
Yeah. There’s 16 of us.

SHOPKEEPER
Well sport, a Dago is a greek and another name for ‘em is a ‘Grill’.

YORKY
Why d’ya call ‘em those names?

SHOPKEEPER
‘Cause at the end of a days work they say ‘day go’ and most of them work the milk bars and they’re always grilling something or other. So that’s why they get the name ‘Grills’ from. Ya see sport? Now we’ve also got a lot of Italians in this great country of ours, so we call ‘em ‘Wops’ and the Abos are called ‘Bungs’ ‘cause if ya hit ‘em with the roo bar of the truck they make the sound ‘BUNG’. D’ya get it cobber?
(he has a good laugh to himself)
Now take you English gentlemen for example. In our country we don’t recognize your class system so we call you blokes ‘limeys’ or better still, ‘pommy bastards’ ‘cause you’ve got skin like pomegranates.
(laughs again)

YORKY
Thanks for the information.

SHOPKEEPER
G'day sport, see ya around like a rissole.

(We boys are sitting around on a couple of street benches outside the Post Office. It’s 9:30 at night. The year is 1964. The local kids are tearing up and down the streets in their hotted-up Holden cars. A couple of young girls are walking down the street in their stiletto-heeled boots and hiked-up skirts. They’re absorbed in conversation as they come near to the benches we’re sitting on.)

PETER
(One of the oldest of our crew.)
Hello darlings. Where are you two lovelies going?

GIRL 1
Root ya fucking boot ya pommy bastard!

PETER
Charming, I must say.

GIRL 2
Fuck you, ya pommy bastard!

BOY
You’re a real charmer with the Ladies, Peter.

GINGER
How would you like to take those two home and introduce them to your mum?

PETER
Not bloody likely! I hope that’s not an example of the everyday Aussie chick.

(It’s getting late so we call a taxi service and head back out to the Farm. We all pile out of the Taxis and pay off the driver.)


RALPH
Look what I found in Town!
(Opens a brown paper bag and pulls out a small box of fireworks.)


YORKY
You’d better not set them off here Ralph or Defoe will kick your ass.

RALPH
Bullocks to Bill Defoe! There’s no bangers, there’s only Fizzers and Catherine
Wheels.

(Ralph walks over to the fence and stuck a couple of Fountains in the cracks of the
fence post. Then he pins 4 Cathrine Wheels to the fence post and lights them all at once.)



RALPH
That’s it, the shows over! Let’s go to bed. I’m knackered and tomorrow we’ve got to get up at 5.


THE NEXT MORNING

DEFOE
Get out of those fart sacks you pommy bastards. Who the fucking hell was setting off fireworks last night?

RALPH
(Pulling the bed covers off his head.)
I was. Why? What do you want, shouting your head off at this time of night?

DEFOE
Get out-a bed you fucking yobo before I piss all over ya!
(He grabs Ralphs’ bed covers and rips them clean off the bed revealing Ralphs’ scrawny body curled up in the fetal position.)

Get ya plates of meat on the deck, boy, before I chuck a bucket of water on ya!


RALPH
What’s the matter?

DEFOE
I’ll show you what the bloody matter is sport! Put ya boots on and come with me!

RALPH
What about mi clothes?

DEFOE
Fuck ya clothes! You’ve got fuck all to brag about anyway! Come on! Hurry up!

(Ralph puts is boots on and follows Defoe out of the hut. He walks over to the fence post where Ralph had set off the fireworks. We all follow outside.)

(I see what made Defoe mad. Gray smoke is drifting out of the wooden fence post. The whole top of the post is now a large piece of black charcoal.)

RALPH
OH SHIT!!!!!

DEFOE
Ya stupid, fucking pommy bastard! Look what you’ve done to mi fence post! Had ya have done that in dry bush country we’d have a bloody bush fire on our hands now mate! If ya had another brain in your head, lad, it would be fucking lonely, ya silly yahoo bastard! Go and get ya strides on and after breakfast I’ll show ya where the fence posts are kept. Ya can dig that bastard out and stick a new one in. Then I’ll show ya how to re-strain the fence back up!

(Ralph is standing in his boots and underpants, looking half-asleep so Defoe kicks him in the arse,)

Wake up to yourself, ya sleepy, pommy bastard. Go and get some gear on!

(Ralph gives Defoe a dirty look and takes off at the double, back to the hut to put his work gear on.)




(A few days later Defoe gives 6 of the older boys 5 pounds each
and a train ticket to a Bush town.)

DEFOE
The Cocky will meet ya at the station. Good luck lads’. This is Gods’ own country and with a bit of hard work and a few brains ya should do all right for ya selves.

(Later, after all the boys, except Morris and me, have left.)

YORKY
What about me and Morris, Bill? Haven’t ya got a place for us to go to yet?

DEFOE
Ya sure ya won’t change ya mind about going in the Army?

YORKY
Quite sure Bill. I’m itching to get out to the Bush. I’ve been looking forwards to that for 2 years now.

DEFOE
Alright mate. Ya old enough to leave home so I guess ya old enough to make decisions for ya self. You and Morris will be leaving tomorrow morning, so better roll ya swag bright and early.


(It is difficult for me to sleep,‘cause all I can think of is red dust and kangaroos. In the morning I am packed, so I make my way across to the kitchen for some breakfast.)

DEFOE (Enters Nissan hut)
Here’s ya ticket Morris and 5 quid for ya start in life. Here’s your ticket Yorky and here’s a fiver mate. Make sure you look after it, ‘cause you’ll have to work bloody hard in the Bush for a fiver.

YORKY
Thanks Bill. You’re a real good bloke. You’ve really helped me a lot since I’ve been here.

DEFOE
Root ya boot Yorky. Ya train leaves at 2 O’clock from Sydney Central so don’t go fucking around Sydney and miss ‘em or you’ll be sleeping on the station all night.

(The jackaroos load our cases into his car and drive us both down to Cabramatta station.)



SYDNEY CENTRAL TRAIN STATION

(Morris and I sit around smoking and eating chips waiting for our trains. The train Morris was to take arrived on time and I helped him put his 2 large bags on board.)

YORKY
Look after yourself Morris. Keep practicing with your knife and best of luck to you

MORRIS
Same to you Yorky.
(Goes inside train to find his seat.


(There is no one left in my life now to say “don’t do this” or “don’t do that’. All I have to listen to now is the inner voice of silence that lives in the center of my heart.)

(I’m left sitting on Central Station by myself, feeling rather sad as I sit here thinking about all the people I’ve left behind, mi mother, dad and sisters, the 15 lads I’ve lived with for the past 9 weeks, Bill Defoe. They are in the dead past now. ‘Oh well’ I’m thinking, as I wipe away a couple of tears that are slowly trickling down mi cheek, ‘all I’m left with is what I started out with, myself’)
