“Inner Grit” What It Is and Is Not

my unedited personal notes:

Opening: 

Next week an invaluable podcast series on the five Tanmatras [i.e. The Five Divine Currents] begins.  Powerful, compelling, deeply personal yet universal.  I encourage you to join us.

——

not ego, not childhood wounds cloaked as one’s ‘truth’.  not perspective, bias, or beliefs

Real ‘inner grit’ comes from the transcendent.  the witness, the Shiva value. Yet positive attracts negative.  Being that in kali yuga attracts negativity, judgement, resentment, projection, misunderstanding, jealousy, anger, etc.  and that will come not just from strangers but from those closest to you.  The other option is low profile, like the Mona Lisa smile.  So, some choose to speak from that place openly while others prefer to hide it.  The choice is theirs but the decision comes from a spontaneous place called their own true nature.  Either way one has little choice in which they live…  and the process of living it is not clear cut.  It is awkward and difficult as one integrates the ‘house of mud’ of the superficial self, with the awakening process to one’s inner Divinity… the undefinable, ungraspable field of Perfection… The silent, unbiased, unopinionated Shiva value within.  From there, commitment is infinitely solid, yet paradoxically not black and white. 

Cultured life vs behavioral modification

Spiritual growth is not about outward appearance.  it is an evolutionary process.  though there are phase transitions along the way, it is essentially gradual with no surface displays of progress.  It is natural, like the growth of a tree or the rising of the sun.  So, it is common to put on ‘behavior airs’ to convince one’s self and others that they have spiritually ‘advanced’.  Are the changes rooted in subconscious chit or genuinely from within a stronger connection with the transcendent?  That is not so easy for one to tell for sure.  Yet the desperation to want confirmation compels many to modify their behavior in an attempt to convince themselves and others of their progress. 

The following is a lovely note from one of my long-term students reflecting the truth of the genuine process of spiritual development… humble, uncertain or even confused on the surface, yet life changing, solid and profound: 

Dear Michaelji,

I could not write a good ‘about me’ page for my blog. Then yesterday I wrote one that [my husband] also liked. I was wondering if it sounds correct to you? It has been my experience.

About Me:

From a young age, I started to define myself through others. I would/and still do want others to validate me and my existence. While growing up, I could not find a clear mirror, not from my family, friends, or teachers. I didn’t always receive a positive reflection when I was myself. I learned that I was much more accepted if I mirrored others instead of them mirroring me. Although superficial, I finally had connections with people. However, over time, I forgot that I existed at all. 

Then, in my early 30’s, I met my teacher. The first day of class I walked into the room to the cleanest mirror I had ever experienced. Because the reflection was so clear, I could barely hold back my tears. All day, I felt a burst of emotion move through my body. I was too embarrassed about crying around a bunch of strangers. Because of this, I ran to my car after class, drove home, ran inside my apartment while avoiding all my neighbors, and shut my door. I let out years and years of a false sense of myself. I did not stop crying until I woke up the next day. 

Over time, I have realized that I have karma, and people look at me through this karma. Somehow, my teacher could see me outside of my karma, and in return, I developed a sense of myself. Not immediately, but over time, I developed a reference frame outside of the world reflection. I call this my inner grit. When I feel myself reaching out there for answers and validation, I return to this place of uncomfortableness and stay with it until it disappears. It is not fun or easy, so I call it “inner grit.” 

This blog is about what I find during my explorations. In the past, I would have been too afraid of what others thought to speak out. But now, if what I say is ridiculed, questioned, or picked apart, I know I have a place to go that will transcend it all. Once I stop wanting to be heard, I will be heard. This is how I feel life works, and my inner grit will get me there.

Cosmic Joke, Liberation & Afterlife 2

my unedited personal notes:

Opening Thoughts: The Supreme Court, Ancient Egypts Right and Left Hands

 Insight vs. Projection, Celestial vs. Astral, Free Will vs. Predetermination

I will respond to the following two comments:  

Hello Michaelji,

 I’ve been thinking about the afterlife a lot in the past couple of years, since I’m getting older and the body is beginning to fall apart. It just seems to do that, no matter how clean or wholistic a life you’ve led. Now I wish I’d had more ice cream. Question is, do we have any control where we go after we leave the body? Many NDE’ers go directly to the void and bypass the astral altogether. To me that seems to be the better option, I don’t quite trust the astral characters. Also wondering what you think of people who practice out of body trips on purpose, not near death experiences? Sounds a bit risky to me. Thank you, I really enjoyed this podcast.

Hello Michael,

Is it alright if I ask you a question? I have been having experiences where I can see how I am projecting onto people and things. I realized the other day in traffic as I looked at a McDonald’s that I had even been projecting onto how I had always seen McDonald’s. It was like a light film of my own perception that had nothing to do with the franchise. I wrote about it in a blog. But since I have put it down in words, I have had a pit in my stomach. The pit is a feeling that nothing I feel is real. So every time I feel something, I don’t know if it is real. I am now questioning everything I feel. I know it is about relationship with, but it goes into my belief that what I feel is not valid. I know I need to figure this out on my own, and I know other people don’t have my conditioning around what they feel. But how do you move forward when nothing makes sense?

Thank you! Great Podcasts

How to Develop Your Mind

blurb:   Enlightenment is the Easy Part. 

my unedited personal notes:

Opening Thoughts:  climate change, the mid ’70s and now, modern physics fiasco and the upcoming re-alignment, here we address delicate issues so the exploration is yours.

the key to integrated awareness…    culturing the awareness

Everything maps onto everything else.  It is all right there in ‘how to play the piano’

what they don’t tell you about liberation

body of mud, body of crystal

As in music: what key are you playing in? 

What is in harmony with nature and how to find it

you are unique, and there is mother nature

your truth or your ‘stuff’/issues

healthy relationship with learning to ride a bike

field theory and the key of the music

the formula and the dance on the scale

Culturing your groove.

modern times expanded sphere of influence.

can we play in all keys?  In other words: Who are you?

boat in the water, no water in the boat.

Cultured/Developed vs Narrow minded

What is freedom?

What are roots?

The Inner Grandmother:  What is the deeper meaning of:

A saint was asked: “My mother does not know about healthy food.  What should I eat?  

He answered: “Ask your grandmother”

Hint:  It is not about food, or your grandmother.

A great saint made a comment about a well-known spiritual figure:

“He is a young avatar… Stay away from him”

Liberation is the easy part, but you can start working on the hard part now.

This all relates to:

How to find your passion.

How to find your friends.

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. “
ELEANOR ROOSEVELT

“As for myself, I met with as much success as I ever could have wanted. 

In other words, I was enthusiastically run-down by every critic of the period.”

How Not to Destroy Relationships

Rare But Essential Knowledge: Mahabharata Revisited

emotional stability:  be it international or interpersonal:  emotional maturity

kindness is the greatest gift

keep your balance, otherwise don’t speak until you gain balance and then speak

holding it in until you explode is not a good strategy!!

speak sweetly, kindly, wisely and you can say almost anything…. communion/communication… 

be constructive…   don’t lose yourself over the little things

the key to healthy relationships: learn to talk with stability while pressured… the rare art of expressing yourself wisely

human beings [all of us] are incredibly vulnerable creatures…

a kiss does not make up for a cut/punch… speak responsibly or say nothing until you can find a better way

healthy communication takes effort….  and when you are tired and want to not effort, alone at home with family, most important to be attentive to the relationships

worst time to speak is when you are angry

get in touch with your ACTUAL motivation.  you are often not angry about what you think you are angry about

anger is just a shroud for hurt

you can say what you need to say IF you can keep your balance

confrontation vs communion… the key is staying stable, in BALANCE

projection vs perception

 taking a deeper look at: ‘faith in god gives life meaning’…  the essence of ‘faith’ is inner knowing.  Know what you know and strive to understand it better.

 World History is an accounting of emotional instability.

Vishnu Avatars

my unedited personal notes:

How the universe works

current ‘language’ of modern physics is too awkward

always an incarnation of Vishnu around… duality requires two poles to spin around 

10 avatars of Vishnu

Imbalance is a vacuum

is life really bliss?  or is it really suffering?

Body of glass or of mud?

UFOs AND THE VEDA 

golden age just around the corner now…  2025

sustained commitment to attain real and lasting changes

“The Millionaire Next Door”

too much pressure from every angle… internet, friends, news, tv….

“who’ll stop the rain?” it is in the Veda but who is listening?

Should the US supreme court intervene if justice system/judges politicized?

The enlightened age will occur when all religions are recognized as dedicated to the same one thing,

while realizing that the integrity of each nation is determined by the laws of nature unique to that land,

while honoring those not of that land to remain dedicated to their heritage while respecting the integrity and traditions of the land in which they reside,

while also honoring the depth of understanding of the nature of life, existence, science, and spirituality from their and all angles of all approaches/ perspectives,

and knowing that all is unified in harmony and mutual respect when held insightfully and honorably yet remaining strong in the harmonious integrity of their own birthright.
