Hello dear Reader,
suddenly already half of the year has passed. After midsummer the days start to become shorter, first slowly and than faster. The Self is without change, its realisation ends the cycle of suffering. And when this is done without doubt: forget everything.

Nothing but Love.

madhukar Madhukar: : If someone focuses on the Guru, the Heart, the Self, the whole world is changing. The body transforms, the mind, the believes, the attitude, the relations. Beauty, tranquillity, clarity. The city, the valley, the country changes. A glance from the Guru: Yes! A word from the Guru: No! Ok. Simple. Everything else of this graceful life is a play, a dream. A dream that will eventually start to smell and then disappear.

Tuscany, July 13, 2007

Ramana Maharshi
Guru is the Self. Sometimes in his life a man becomes dissatisfied and not content with what he has, he seeks the satisfaction of his desires through prayer to God. His mind is gradually purified until he longs to know God, more to obtain his grace than to satisfy his worldly desires. Then Gods grace begins to manifest.

God takes the form of a Guru and appears to the devotee, teaches him the truth and, moreover, purifies his mind by association. The devotee's mind gains strength and is then able to turn inward. By mediation it is further purified and remains still without the least ripple. That calm expanse is the Self.

Books
rightcontent Ashtavakra Gita with Ramana Maharshi’s handwriting

You find them sometimes, the jewels of spiritual texts that you get attached to and that never leave you. For example the Ashtravakra Gita of the eightfold crippled, who as a embryo was so clever and corrected his mother’s teacher who condemned him. Later he triumphed over the wise and brought enlightenment to King Janaka.

The Ashtavakra Gita was given in 1932 to Ramana Maharshi by the Maharaja of Mysore in a beautiful edition. Ramana himself wrote the text in Sanskrit next to the print. From this the Ramana Ashram made a nice facsimile edition that has all the magic of Indian printed material. Aside from the text itself, that belongs to the most important Advaita Vedanta material. Every single sentence is mind blowing, realisation guaranteed.

Ashtavakar Gita, edited by the Ramana Ashram, 100 rupees.

Movie
rightcontentSource Code

Sean Fentress, played by Jake Gyllenhaal („Brokeback Mountain“) comes alive on the train and in the mind of Colter Stevens. He is a victim of a bomb explosion eight minutes later. Then Stevens wakes up in a sort of cockpit and gets to know that in reality he is a soldier who is fed into memory of another person. The scene will be repeated until the assassin is found.

Complicated? Not really if one understands the movie as a depressing visualisation of rebirth which is to be avoided eventually. In the movie there is a happy ending in which Stevens falls in love with a woman on the train. The content of his mind is being transferred to the imagined world while the life support system of his “real” body being a damaged soldier from Afghanistan is shut down.

What is really going on? The world and everything we assume to know is an illusion being creating by our brain to find happiness. Sorry to tell you that the movie is not as convincing as “Inception”, the other Hollywood meditation on mind and illusion. Recommendable anyway.

Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan , Director: Duncan Jones. DVD EUR 18,29

Lost & Found
“I am quite proud of my enlightenments. I am a starchild, a seeker, and I want to dance barefoot on flowers and skulls, my body being possessed by all. I want to go into mountains, breaks man’s hearts, turn water into wine and drown in Dylan’s eyes. I want to rescue the world, but do not want to see who I really am.”

Jutta Winkelmann was together with her twin sister Gisela Getty an icon of the 1968 revolution. Both live together with Rainer Langhans (former „Kommune I“ with Uschi Obermaier) in a social experiment and relationship, which is called by Langhans “The Harem”.
