Sri Bhagavan Video Conference Youtube Online

Every one of us will have success stories as a part of our life journey. Similarly in Oneness, as a part of your inward journey (journey towards god), you might have undergone change in your behavior or character or attitude or mindset or way of approach. In a nut shell, there might be a drastic change in your personality after coming to Oneness.

Now Oneness Guides are eager to know such real life stories from each and every one of us.They are documenting such transformation stories from devotees, course participants, sevaks etc..

Please report your real life transformation stories in the aspect of personality (not miracles). Please report such stories as soon as you read this as we will post those stories as soon as possible.

Please report your transformation stories with the following elements:
  1. What kind of transformation your personality had undergone after coming to Oneness?
  2. How did you undergo this? (which sadhana/teaching helped you?)
  3. Before coming to Oneness how was your personality?

Q:Some people when trying to experience the pain, it seems that they are only analyzing it, not experiencing it. How to sit with the problem without analysis being triggered? What should we do to get out of the mind and go deeper inside the heart?

Bhagavan: Yes.. see, the problem with humanity, and especially modern civilization, is we have stopped experiencing things. We hardly experience anything, leave alone suffering. Nothing is being experienced. When you drink a glass of water, you're not experiencing it. The mind is still working. You think about what happened yesterday, what's going to happen tomorrow, you're worrying about something or enjoying something, but not experiencing that drinking of the glass of water. While you eat, you do not experience what you're eating. When you brush your teeth, you do not experience what is going on.

Watch out video's from youtube.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
