Everything that is happening is this Consciousness happening

Welcome to this meeting via Paltalk!

This meeting is a meeting with the investigation of Reality, which implies the end of the illusion. The illusion consists in the sense of separation, of separateness, in the idea of an "I" present in the experience, which is the experience of Consciousness itself. All present experience is not a personal experience, but an experience in Consciousness and of Consciousness. Consciousness here is what cannot be described, which is beyond all conceptualization, all verbalization, every word. Therefore, we are speaking of That which is the very own basis that sustains every manifestation.

For example, now you can hear this talk, in front of the computer screen or before a visual image, but I assure you that this experience is not a "personal" experience. Illusion only consists in believing that this is a "personal" experience, but there is none of that. At this very moment, there is nothing "personal" going on, for all that is happening is this Consciousness happening, it is This present.

Thus, to hear this voice, this talk, or to stand before a visual image or any sensory experience is the experience in Consciousness. I am not saying that it is an experience OF Consciousness, but that it is an experience IN Consciousness, because Consciousness is not separate from that experience. The illusion is exactly in this sense of separation, as if there were awareness of experience with "someone" listening and "someone" speaking. This, in fact, is just a thought that is just an experience in this Consciousness too.

For example, you know the experience of the feet, the fingers or the experience of the left arm and the right arm, and you say, "This is always with me... These feet walk with me and I walk on these feet... I move and move those hands, those arms. This is always with me! " 

When you say this, the idea is that there is the present body and "someone" present within the body in that experience, in the experience of the feet, the arms, the hands. As if there were a separation between that, which is within the body, and the body itself, but what you need to realize is that who is saying this is just the thought; It is this sense that we call "mind". But, in fact, all this experience is a game in Consciousness and there is no "one" in It; There is no "one" inside the body, who has feet, hands and arms. There is only this Consciousness! This Consciousness has the feet, the hands, the arms, the ground, the floor where this body sat down, and everything is This. There is no separation!

There is no separation! This separation is created by imagination, by thought. So, there is no one experiencing this... There is not! Let's see if we can share this with you, in a very direct way - this is called Satsang. There is a lot of talk throughout there, but this one here is called Satsang.

Participant: Is it enough just to believe this is so?

Master Gualberto: No! It is not enough just to believe this is so! It is to assume that is so. Believing is just an volitional act of goodwill too. You are in a goodwill and start believing so. The other one is unwilling to and does not want to believe. This is just a volitional act, an act of desire and goodwill. It is necessary to assume this, and you assume This by abandoning the illusion that "you are there within this experience". If you disappear from experience, it continues and is an experience of Totality, of pure Consciousness, of pure Reality.

One thing that should be clear to you is that the experimenter is always intermittent. I will put it better. In some moments, you are aware of your feet, hands and arms; At other times, you are not. In this moment when you are aware of the hands, the arms and the feet, there is an experimenter, but you are not always aware of them, and yet they are still there. When you are aware of them, there is the sense of separation, the illusion of an experimenter. When you are not aware of them, they remain there and the experience remains as Consciousness; There is no one! Realize how beautiful this is. You are utterly dispensable for life to go on. When you enter, problems appear, because there is the appearance of "someone" experiencing; "Someone" trying to settle, to solve, to figure out how to do.

Is that clear?

What is the problem? Your problem is you! You have no problem! In your Essential, Real Nature, which is Consciousness (which is the absence of this experimenter), there is no problem! There is no problem in life! Life does not carry problem, but the "person" does not stop carrying problem. Your Natural State is a state free from this illusion, the illusion of the “I”, the “me”, the person that is the illusion of ego. There is no ego! You are Consciousness, You are God! So, Consciousness, God, Presence, Being is the Nature of Reality.

These talks are intended to give you a warning, a warning, an alert, a tip. The purpose of these talks is for you to awaken to outside of this illusion of the sense of a present "me"  that wants to solve, to straighten, to control, to ponder, to reflect, to understand what happens.

 Let me ask you something: is there a moment of the day when, even when your hands, your feet, your arms, your head are present, you have no awareness of their presence? Are there moments in the day like this? Do you carry the idea of fingers, hands, feet, or blinking eyes or ears listening all day long? Absolutely not! This does not happen! So you are completely dispensable for this manifestation, this expression of Consciousness, through this natural movement, which is the movement of the body. Everything happens automatically, naturally, "unconsciously". Life goes on! This "unconsciousness" is the supreme Consciousness. Therefore, you are totally dispensable!

How many times have you blinked your left eye today? How many strands of hair did you lose today? From seven in the morning until now, how many heartbeats have you had? Who knows? Who risks? Do you have any number?

Whatever is present, it is this Consciousness... It is a single reality in this Consciousness happening in this Consciousness. There is nothing independent of this Consciousness; It is this Consciousness, which is unlimited, which is not bound to a mathematical formulation, which is not analyzing, not studying how to do. Everything is happening in this Intelligence, which is this Consciousness. While things are present, they are present in this Consciousness. When they disappear, that Consciousness remains unchanged - that is the beauty of Reality. The apparitions are intermittent! Where they appear is not intermittent. It is what remains unchanged! This is the Nature of Being. This is the Nature of Consciousness, which is non-dual, is timeless

If you want to keep on playing to dream, keep on affirming, day by day, moment by moment, the illusion of an experimenter there. If you are willing to go beyond of being born and dying, you must disconnect yourself from this theatrical "joy", so fleeting, so inconstant, so ephemeral…

You cannot learn about this

The meetings called Satsang are face-to-face. We have here (referring to the online meetings) an opportunity together, but this does not, in fact, constitute a real work. You are left only with an approach of investigation. We cannot also deny the Presence inside these meetings, even online, but they are of great importance indeed to those who are present in this work of dissolving this sense of an "I", of deconstructing that sense of separation. The others need to appear in person. It is necessary to go beyond concepts, beyond theories.

When we talk about this Realization, we are saying that the only Reality, the only Truth is this Consciousness. We are always dealing with this Consciousness recognizing Itself. When It acknowledges Itself, It does it in what we call pure experience – the experience without the experiencer. There is only Consciousness, always! And It knows Itself all the time in this experience. All you are experiencing, at this instant,  is the experience. It is not someone's experience, it is the experience.

The experience may be happening for the body, for the mind, but it is still only an experience in this Consciousness, it is not an experience for someone. The illusion is that you are here, but the only Reality here is this Consciousness, it is not you! When I say "you," I refer to those thoughts about what is happening, which are also happening in this Consciousness, as an experience in the Consciousness. It is not something particular, it is not something personal.

The idea is that you are thinking, feeling, speaking and listening to in the action, but there is no such thing. This is just an illusion created by thought itself, an imagination, and we are investigating this. The Sages, the Ancients, in their Wisdom, left this vision in their words, which then after became only ideas, beliefs.

In ancient India, the Sages were called seers. They left a vision, but this vision, for the blind, becomes a belief. The vision is for the seers, but when they talk about the vision to the blind ones, these ones pass to believe it and to repeat it in words. It is as if you teach a blind one about colors and he starts repeating their names - which are just words and do not make any sense to him. But he repeats, because the one who sees colors said the names to him. Then, being a blind man who only keeps words, he repeats. This is called "Advaita for the blind."

We are living in a moment like this. There are many blind ones describing the colors; there are many supposed seers describing a supposed vision, which is, in fact, only a belief. You do not need to learn anything about it, no need to memorize words about it, write books or poems about it. You only have to see, only see.

Then the Ancients, in their vision, in their Wisdom, they talked about this "not two," which is Advaita. There is only One, a single Reality. One is already too much, and this "One" is unspeakable, incommunicable in words, indescribable and, if you really see, if you are a seer, you silence, you remain in Silence. But if you are not a seer, you create songs about It. You can see, but you cannot communicate. There is no way to communicate! It is possible to know, but not "someone" to know; It is possible to know, but not "someone" to describe, to explain, to teach. It is not possible to learn about It; It is possible to see. See This is natural, because we are talking about this True Nature; we are talking about what You are, of your Real Nature.

There is nothing separate from this Consciousness. In other words, no apparition arises separate from this Consciousness. So thoughts are not problems; Sensations also not; The body does not either. To presume that there is something separate from this Consciousness is an illusion, and this reinforces the sense of duality, of separateness. We are always pointing to a single Reality, unnamable, indescribable, and this unique Reality is your True Nature, it is your Real Nature! This is You in your Being! It is not you in your thinking model, in your belief. Do not turn This complicated, thinking about. You cannot reach This through thought. Thought appears inside This, but thought does not encompass This. This encompasses everything, including thought. Not just thought, but any other apparition.

Language is always limited, but words born from Silence, even being limited, are like a pregnant woman: they carry something within them. Therefore, these words are "pregnant"; they are words that carry something, because they are born from this Consciousness, from this Silence. They carry the power of this Silence, the power of this Presence. They do not communicate intellectually, they deliver something, they are "giving birth" to something, although they are limited. But as they are born of this Silence, as they are born of this Consciousness, they carry a power behind them. Greater than these words is the Silence behind them. These words are like missiles reaching a target!

What is present now is this Presence, this Grace, this Consciousness, this Power... Everything is Now, Here. This is completely different from what you have heard there, in philosophy, in religion, in the so-called "gurus" of modern times.

Surrender and trust

It is evident that these meetings here by Paltalk do not replace a face-to-face meeting. Here is the invitation for a real job in this proximity. These meetings here by Paltalk are like dating at distance where you cannot get married ... It has to be face-to-face. Only this way, a direct work is possible.

In these meetings we are talking about this Intelligence, about this Reality. It is important that you stop thinking about it, because when you think about it, you destroy this thing. I advise you against thinking about what you hear here, let alone saving those words, because that can create the false illusion of that realization, or that true illusion of a merely conceptual realization. What we are saying in Satsang is not for you to save! What we are saying is for you to observe and discover, directly. You hear these words like "you are this Consciousness," "you are this Intelligence," "you are this Absolute Reality," but do not think about It. In fact, do not think anything about It.

Waking up is not think about it, because thinking about that is to dream. You need to Awake! When You are Awake, You are in Your True State and there is no thought about It! When you are awake, you are seeing it. So, it is not a matter of thinking about this ... It is a matter of Awakening! It is about seeing directly, without theories and beliefs. I am inviting you to go beyond problems, conflicts, suffering; to go to your Natural State! Forget your problems! In your Natural State there is a Power that takes care of everything! Did you hear that?

It is necessary to be open, to allow this ... Allow yourself to this surrender! You must surrender your ego, your concepts, your opinions, your questions, your answers, your power too ... everything ... surrender your ego. That is exactly what happens. This abandonment, this surrender, this total involvement is the possibility you have to go beyond the ego, the egoic mind. So, what do you do? Nothing! Then you become your own Being, you leave the world alone and remain in that abandonment, in that surrender. You remain in this total involvement with reality, and then you go beyond the body and mind. Here is the cure, the Liberation. Here you are in your Divine State, in your Natural State.

Then, you will fully understand that you are not that one who does, you are not the doer, you are not the one who accomplishes things! There is a Power taking care of it! Stop fighting; stop trying to make things happen! Surrender yourself! Turn yourself in! Here is the beauty of this Reality, the Truth, the Liberation! So, you are simply the Being, this Reality! There is absolutely nothing you can do, that you need to do, that you can do about it!

Put your heart and mind in the Self, in your Real Being... Your heart in the Heart. This Being is your Heart! Your Real Being is your Heart. Then, you put your mind and heart into the Heart, into the Real Heart! Your Heart is God! Keep your mind in God! God in your Heart! Confidence, surrender, total surrender to this Absolute Reality, to this Real Presence, to this real Heart! Turn yourself to This... Go beyond this imagined world by the thought. In other words, do not allow thoughts to run outside, the mind to turn outside. Bring these thoughts, which were going outward, to the Heart. Find Peace, Happiness in yourself, here... Stop going outside.

This mysterious Power knows everything ... Everything we need, what you need! We do not need to know how this Power takes care of us; we just need to allow this Power to take care of everything! This mysterious Power, which is this Real Presence, this Divine Presence, this Truth, is here tonight ... It is Here! Allow yourself this ... Allow this Power to take care of everything! We have to allow this Power!

Do not ask me why each of these speeches goes in a certain direction; I do not know either!

You ask if you have this ability to allow yourself ... I answer: TOTAL! You all have! That is because you are already this Presence, this Power. You are Sat - Chit - Ananda! You are not the body, the mind, the world! The world, the body and the mind appear, but this is not You.

How does this whole thing sound to you? It is a matter of surrender, rendition, trust! It is a matter of faith! It is a matter of taking out your ego, your control, your choice, your answers, your personal concepts; Take it all out of the field! Abandon yourself to the Divine ... Surrender to God, to the Truth. Then, when "you" are not, It is. You will never understand this Presence, this Grace, this Power, this Truth and the way It does. You will never understand and you do not even need to understand... Just be receptive, allow yourself, be Empty! Remember that this Empty is not emptiness; it is the True Blessing, the True Grace!

Namaste everyone! See you next meeting!

Meditation: The pure observation

What is the nature of Reality? After all, what is it that remains stable? After all, what is It that remains free? How can we approach This?

From the mind, the suggestion is that two things are present: the first is consciousness and the second is apparitions, they are objects. Then, in the mind there is this division, there is this separation between consciousness and apparitions. You see yourself as a person who is aware of the world of forms.

So the idea is about an "I" present, seeing the world outside. There is consciousness - this one is the belief - and, outside, a world of which this consciousness is conscious.

In this way,there are consciousness and apparitions, the "I" and the objects. The "I" as subject and the objects  as apparitions. The sense of this present person is the illusion of someone who is aware of the world; Someone inside the body conscious of the world outside the body.

We come across this illusion of duality, the illusion of this "I" and this "non-I"; “I” and the world, “I” and God. This is the mind's suggestion for all of this. This consciousness is described as a witness to the apparitions. It is understood as one who sees the objects. So, there are the one who sees and the objects, the witness and the witnessed thing. Here is duality!

The conflict is on that basis,  there is all this issue about the "I", because you separate yourself as an entity - the one who thinks and  thoughts; The one who feels and  feelings; The one who observes and that which is observed. When you do this, it strengthens the sense of separation. When you believe that, you are stuck to another belief created by thought.

Thought is the basis of this division, of this belief, of that duality, of that sense of separation, of that idea. I want to invite you to observe without the observer, which means an observation where there is no observer and an observed thing. The direct experience remains, but there is no "one" left. In the experience of pure observation, there is no separation.

I want to invite you not to be confused with thought and not to separate yourself from it. When you are separate from thought, it is thought itself separating from itself. When you become confused with thought, it is thought itself confusing with itself. I would call this to disidentify from the observer, to disidentify from the thinker. Thought does not happen in you or to you; It just happens. Observation does not happen in you or for you. This is Real Meditation! The action performed without someone doing; The "seeing" without someone looking; The thought without someone thinking. Then, the thought ends, observation, with the sense of one observing, ends; The action, in that sense of someone doing, also ends. This is Meditation!

For you, there must always be someone: someone meditating, someone thinking, someone doing ... Right now, at this moment, there is only Silence, that absence of the thinker, of the doer, of the observer, of the one who listens ... There is no one listening and there is no one talking. The talk happens, the hearing happens, the thought happens, the action happens, and that is Meditation.

You can follow it, but you can not think about this. If you think about it, you get back into the game again - the game of someone analyzing, someone trying to understand, someone agreeing or disagreeing. That simple! It is only to hear and, in this listening, there is the clarity of Meditation. This clarity of Meditation is to understand without someone understanding, without someone accumulating, without someone agreeing or disagreeing with it. If you are listening in this way, you are in Meditation. If you are trying to "catch" this in order to take this to the next moment, this is the very movement of the egoic mind. Mind wants to capture this, but it cannot.

It is possible to follow this, but someone following this, no! The comprehension of this is possible, but one understanding this, no! It is a habit. The egoic mind has this habit of acquiring, of accumulating. In this Real Consciousness, there is no room for this. This is a space forged by the egoic mind. The egoic mind forges a space, the space of knowledge, the space of experience, the space of memory, the space of information, the space of the experimenter.

This Consciousness is this amplitude, beyond all space, beyond all limitation. Space is limitation. This non-space, this non-limitation is Meditation. This is Consciousness! This is pure observation, without observer and an observed thing. This is pure experience, without experimenter and an experienced thing. This is the reality that is not separate from an apparition. So, these apparitions are not separate from this Reality. Since they are not separate, they do not cause any problems. Thought does not cause problem, feeling does not cause problem, emotion does not cause problem, body does not cause problem. When there is no separation, there is no suffering; therefore, there is no problem.

The mind has created this illusion that the body is the problem, thought is the problem, the world is the problem, life is the problem. But, in fact, the problem is only this illusion that the mind itself created, that sense of separation between it and the thought, between it and the body, between it and life. Mind wishes that life should be different, that thought should be different, that body should be different, that everything should different! Mind gets separate in order to demand, and when it does this, it produces suffering.

You do not have to get rid of the body, the mind, the world, the life, you just have to get rid of the illusion that there is "someone" there, who is seeing that everything is wrong, everything is out of place. "Someone" with all his demands, observing as the observer and judging: "I like and do not like"; "Someone" in this illusion of being a thinker, trying to control the thoughts: "I appreciate that, I do not appreciate it"; "I like this and I do not like it"; "I am sure of that, I am not really sure of that..."; That is the illusion! There is the illusion of the doer too - that "someone" who is doing things, that "someone" who does, who feels responsible for things that are happening around him, as if he could control what happens around him. It is always this idea of a "someone" who thinks, who does, who feels.

You learn how to disidentify from this illusion, from "someone". It is just that! So, you perceive that thought, feeling, action, world and body are going to their right place, and that "you" disappears. Are you still trying to think about it? This is so simple that you do not need to think about it. If you think about it, it will get complicated, because this is an outside mind talk to a non-mind.

This meeting’s moment, called Satsang, is a moment of Meditation. In Meditation, there is no "one", there is no thinker. Being is something very natural. The belief of the thinker is something learned. We learn, we acquire this belief that we are the thinkers and that we fabricate thoughts. This thinker is not Real! There is no thinker! Thought, yes; Thinker, no!

All the problems you have are based on this misunderstanding, on the “understanding” that you are there for changing something, for doing something, for fixing something. This is not true! You are here just to see that there is no one there, just Life! And in Life, there is no thinker, no observer, there is no a judge, no one to fix or adjust. Life remains a mystery, an inexplicable event. This is Love, this is Freedom, this is Happiness!
