Conscious Administration/Governance. Who is in Control? Who is God?

On my return to Delhi few years ago. I found that the collective has many questions. Is it telepathy/thought flow/mind space/controlled emotions/mind/mental/intellect/tuning/connection/energy/structures? Who is in control? Who is God? How does this world work? Who runs it?

Consciousness is One. There is also Individual. There is personality. Conscious choices.

Consciousness is beyond mind/heart/body. There is a collective consciousness. That is where we are One. That is Godliness. Qualitative human excellence.

I am in tune with that. We make collective choices to change who we are as human beings. My path to accepting that I must become President of Asia 2040 is not an individual choice. It is something brought upon me because of the journey. This is the path forward.

On my return I kept telling the collective conscious as a conclusion to discussions/questions being asked that they must join politics/political parties and make changes on an administrative level for the best of this planet. To the ones who want to find out who is in control. I joke now and say dial 100 number for the police control room. 😀

I was busy with my ceramic work, Looking for my husband and dealing with my family situation.

Those discussions have boomeranged. I knew of taking responsibility before (having the ability to respond). Yes I have finished my spiritual practice/learning/experience. Had so much of enlightenment, that I realized, sitting on this mountain can be an addiction. I decided to walk around and look at what else is going on.

Yes I know that changes need to manifest. We make changes as a collective. To make these changes in the most educated/organized/legal method is to join politics. Human beings from cave men have gotten thus far. We have paper notes as currency for money and not barter system. We have organized ourselves into administration/governance/countries/governments.

Conscious governance/administration is the path. Not just being used by this collective consciousness.

As an individual consciousness. I have worked many years and awakened myself. Died before death many times. This qualitative being has been shared time and time again with others who are awakened/chosen through the collective consciousness. I ask for a Department of Enlightenment to protect myself from other not-conscious beings. I am compassionate towards them. Choosing peace even when they want to fight. I don’t believe in the old Gandhian method of give your other cheek. That is not the world we live in. We need to step back to protect ourselves. I distance myself to start with and continue communication in a more formal tone/method.

Control/God?

Who is in control of a situation? Who is in charge? Who is responsible? The collective is together, we are responsible. We have to constantly change. When we know better we do better. There is no one answer. There are so many different dimensions/realities/levels/planes of existence at play/work together. I chose not to just play and consider it a game. It is life, we have to live it. Our choices are important to narrow down to our sense of reality/truth. Otherwise legality will not have any value. I give power to the Prime Ministers/Presidents by the choices I make. On a legal level they are choosen by the collective through the method of fair and free elections.

I am in control of my choices. As a conscious being (This is not conscious/unconscious medically speaking. Or conscious/aware from the educated perspective but conscious from the spirtual/higher plane of existance). Spiritual consciousness includes experiencing being the creator/maker.

People want to know who is incharge? Who is the decision maker? Each of us is and on a legal level we give power to the elected to make decisions for us. I am your spiritual guide ’cause I am part of this Godliness that prevails on this Earth – the collective superconsciousness. Yes we guide you. You have a body that is physical/material. There is non-material that guides you.

If you try to fight the spiritual/spirit/soul in yourself…you just hurt your ownselves and the collective. You all want to become Gods. The method is not through becoming Presidents/Prime Ministers (to rule and have power over people. It will only be a power trip). Not through becoming the richest men/women (it will only be a money trip). Not through becoming the sexiest/most famous actor/supermodel (it will only be a sex trip). You can enjoy these trips. But the qualitative human journey/path is inward. The self to the self. Discovering ‘who I am’. Becoming a God, inside. To want to be a God in the body for others is another trip. The spiritual trip. Go beyond that trip. Work in the world. Humankind. Consciousness. The planet. Don’t follow my words or whatever little you understand of it. Find yourself! 😀

Upliftment of women / Women’s Liberation

As a liberated young woman, I say to upliftment of women / women’s liberation – “I don’t think so!” (with an attitude). 

Upliftment of the human race. Let’s work towards being the best human beings each of us can. 

And here is my humorous take on upliftment of women / women’s liberation.

Gone are the days when women had to take their bras off and thrown them into the air and claim women’s liberation. Uplifted free thinking Indian women don’t need to put large bindis and look all artsy any longer. Now, we do wear (and don’t need to wear) wonderbras/pushup bras to uplift our breasts. We don’t fight men, but love them.

There is ofcourse the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign. (save the girl child, educate her)  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beti_Bachao,_Beti_Padhao_Yojana

As a well educated girl-adult, I feel we should ask for a campaign for the uneducated adults. And also especially, for retired folk! Something like “Save the Adult, Especially the Retired Ones, ’cause an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” (I live in a colony/community where the number of retired folk is high!)

Perhaps the Government Of India should restart free adult night education. Or perhaps not free. My experience is that we must charge a little money, the minimum possible. And teach some skill along with education. This is quite a common practice in the non-profit sector.

Don’t take my word for what I say about the Government and the campaigns. I was missing in action while I was away from the city/capital for approx. 10 years, busy running after enlightenment and then teaching ‘how to’. So a lot more catching up on news for me. Check my resume on my site divyamsurabhi.com to know more.

Talking about Indian politics. Indira Gandhi has been the only woman prime minister of India. We are a proud nation and have so many women in politics.

And yes, when I struggled with being left alone by all other known human beings, in the village context a few years ago..I did have and was surprised by nasty thoughts like – maybe we should kill the girl child at birth (wasn’t for my own self ofcourse! 😀). I immediately rejected that thought. Perhaps with all the meditation, I was tuning into the collective unconscious.) 

That tradition is already resolved, by very strict rules in India. Identifying the sex of the child when pregnant is illegal. 

As a modern educated person from the city and having done a lot of design for the social development sector, I knew not to socially activate my village neighbours (other than by opening non-profit orgs, which was not my choice) or try to force my city ways on them (very culturally different). I did refuse to wear the chunni to cover my breasts! And I did dress up conservatively 😀. Not calling upon myself unwanted attention.

Watching modern Indian bollywood movies showing sexual uplifting of women. Movies like – Lipstick Under My Burkha, with a middle finger on the poster http://m.imdb.com/title/tt4807830/
And parched by Ajay Devgn Films http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3043252/

Another movie I was impressed by – Queen of Katwe http://m.imdb.com/title/tt4341582/
Lead actor: Lupita Nyongo and Director: Meera Nair. 

Not the day for legal strip clubs (thinking of men stripers 😜) in Delhi NCR. But read recently in an article, that 80% of the people looking at pornography online in India are women. This is modern India! 😀

With all my spiritual background, I choose not to be a Ma/Mata ji sitting in an ashram or temple giving blessings. Perhaps I’m not that old and ofcourse it isn’t my personality type (more into being friends with everyone! 😀). Decided I’d rather be an intelligent beauty, back in the city, marry and have a child.

Satyamev Jayate

Truth Wins!

“Satyameva Jayate” (Sanskrit: सत्यमेव जयते satyam-eva jayate; lit. “Truth alone triumphs.”) is a mantra from the ancient Indian scripture Mundaka Upanishad. Following the independence of India, it was adopted as the national motto of India in May 1949. It is inscribed in script at the base of the national emblem.

Showing next to the image of the balance, my original signature as a ceramic artist. It means balance. 

I was surprised to sign this as my name the day I made my first ceramic. Without thought, I just turned it around and made it at the base of the first pinched pot. 

Growing up I was inspired by ‘being truthful’. Born on the same day as the father of the nation India. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

I learnt through my journey to create more balance in life. Always balance between personal and professional life! 

When I was teaching the path of Beauty/Sundram, I wished to add to the techniques of balance. I wished to add rope walking which i had once experienced in the neyyardam ashram in kerala (This is one of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in South India http://sivananda.org.in/neyyardam/) Wished to learn myself and then teach the sport of balancing on the line/slacklining.  It culminated when I returned to Delhi. There are free sessions available in Deer Park every Sunday (https://m.facebook.com/groups/151612535035099?ref=bookmarks)

There is a note worthy movie about this art/sport- The Walk. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3488710/

I had gone for 12 years of intense spiritual practice away from the city I was born and brought up in. “Isn’t it needed to go into something with intensity?” Someone asks. It is, is my answer, if you want it bad and need it in your life. How else would I have become enlightened and then returned to the city I was born in. To my roots, to work and marry and lead a happy married life!

Have already changed my sign to my studio logo – Talking Clay. Read more about it – https://talkingclay.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/talking-about-the-talking-clay-studio-logo/

Looking forward to my future! 

Sharing the Studio in Dharamshala

Very happy to have had Samira and Yannick over at Talking Clay Studio in Dharamshala for a week. Samira found us through Google, while looking for a place in the Himalayas where she could pot and her friend Yannick joined the 7 day beginners course.

It’s our first time welcoming people to the studio. We have always envisioned sharing this beautiful studio space and hope this is just the beginning of such happenings.

We had some amazing conversations through the 7 days. About movies/books/news and their impact on our minds. If creating movies is predicting or defining the future? About living in a community space. The hierarchy, politics and religion of such living. Being choice full versus going with the unconscious heard or whatever flow is available.

 

Yannick shared that he is on a journey to gain more knowledge and inner wisdom. Samira can’t wait to open her own studio in Dheradun.

 

Ceramic Designers and Producers

Mixing the two as one person
Takes away from the

Gets confined if too much
Technique is involved
