Notes from the Bhagavad Gita

Having just finished reading the beautiful book of the Bhagavad Gita I wanted to share my notes with you all, I hope you find them helpful đź’•

Offer only love, gratitude and respect because all are Krishna. Do not be attached to material form.

Krishna is the body of eternity
He has no beginning,
He is the beginning of everything
The cause of all causes
Have no enemy,
In recognition that all are Krishna
Regardless of material illusion.

When we are disrespected as human form
It has no matter
Because it is only matter
And what is really important is that you remember who you really are and who others really are.

Do what you have to where necessary
Always remembering Krishna
Any suffering is only due to forgetfulness of the relationship with Krishna
Recognising the true form of Krishna and remembering this; coming from this is essential above all else.

See all as Krishna,
Do all work and have all relationships in service of Krishna,
It does not matter who, what, where or when.

Do not become an enemies enemy
Know that it is due to past misdeeds and better to suffer than to protest. Be grateful for the opportunity to transform it.

Be tolerant and friendly no matter what- calm , quiet and patient. Equipoised.
Do not identify with the body- have no false ego.

Does not attach much importance to the pains troubling the body.
Be transcendent to all fears or illusion of material duality.

Knowing or not knowing in intellect are duality illusions/ knowing in being is oneness – which is in fact Krishna the knower in all things.

Be always transcendental to either praise or defaming, distress or happiness. Be patient. Speak of nothing but truth (Krishna) therefore be called silent (not speaking nonsense) speak only of essentials.

Be fixed in internal knowledge (on Krishna) but not external conditions. Including people/what they say/do. Only be fixed on love.

Accept that people change, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse -accept them as they are.

The body of Krishna is known as the field
One who knows the field is liberated

False ego accepts the material body as oneself. When one understands he is not the body but is spirit soul he comes to his real ego. The sense of I am is real ego.

Have no envy
Do not hanker for anything
Be always centred
Balanced
In being and non being
Knowing and not knowing
Always devotional
Transcendentally situated
There,
One is automatically free
With no concern over honour or dishonour of the material self ,
Taking everyone as a dear friend
Seeing all as equal
Beyond material
Attempting all for Krishna,
Always
One with Brahman đź’•

Brahman is
Immortal
Imperishable
And eternal
The constitutional position
Of ultimate happiness đź’•

Stages;

1.Impersonal Brahman / beginning of transcendental realisation. Seeing.
2.Paramatma -the supersoul- self beyond- with others/Krishna- become selfless. Where personality/individuality vanishes.
(The only permanence in life)
3.Supreme personality of godhead/ devotional service to Krishna – absolute truth.

Break attachment to material in whatever form it appears
It is all illusion

Material nature is exact replica of that intended through spirit
It is a reflection,
Unmanifest- manifest

The purpose of the vedas
Are to cut down the material tree and attain the real tree of the spiritual world

By understanding one becomes gradually detached from the false reflection of reality- by knowledge one can cut off the connection and be situated in the real tree.

One only needs to surrender to become situated in the real tree.
The supreme personality of godhead is from where everything has emanated. As soon as one surrenders to Krishna one becomes detached from material automatically.

Free from false prestige, illusion &false association who understand the eternal, are done with material lust, free from dualities of happiness and distress, unbewildered – know how to surrender to Krishna and attain the eternal kingdom.

Surrendering process;

Do not be deluded by pride
(When one is free from the delusion caused by pride he can begin the process of surrender) – Pride is due to illusion.

Become attached to devotional service.
Devotional service is the only way to get out of the false representation of the real tree.

For as long as we are in material attachment we are capable of mistakes
Being one with Krishna one becomes infallible.
To let go is love
Particularly of mistakes
Seeing through illusions
Trusting in the truth above all
Before looking for anything else
Direct focus on love and growth
Over and above any judgement or anything else.

Devotional liberation is defined as reinstatement with his identity. After liberation; service is never stopped.
Actual liberation is getting free from the misconceptions of life. A devotee is inservice 24 hours a day.

Accept Krishna as the supreme saviour of all living entities.
Simply by surrendering to Krishna one is freed.
With faith and love surrender to him.

If we are all in truth light energy a part of the higher light of Krishna then all material reality is illusionary, momentary and gone- forgotten.

Love and purpose

To teach you all you have within
In all you are and have ever been
This is my gift,
This is the soul
Of life and in love
In all as one whole
Without looking in
You could never have seen,
That here as you are, is everything,
Nothing can stop you,
When you truly know
That all that you ever are;
Is all that you hold ❤

Being Breathed

You are not a separate one here breathing alone,
You are here being breathed,
As you’re here free and whole;
And with every breath,
From your soul, you’re told;
I love you,
I love you
I always have, I always will,
Never forget this,
Pure love from your soul ❤
~ M.L Adams

Beyond Position

There’s no right or wrong, Only positions,

Where there’s a choice beyond this; Aim higher above,

In transcendence, non- attachment, With purpose in compassion

Coming from love, beauty, understanding

Seeing all as one; only in love

~ M.L Adams

Thank you

Thank you for all your gifts
For all you are and have ever been
Thank for all this time
For all the ups, downs and in between

Thank you from my heart
For all your love;
For all that’s underneath,
For your all, your soul; in everything

Your gifts are never forgotten,
All you are shines forever and beyond
Thank you for everything;
For all you are and for all you have ever been

Soul journey letters- How do I know the right choice..?

After watching a great webinar by George Hardwick yesterday on becoming more in touch with our soul, true purpose and how we can do this through asking a question then allowing the answers to flow. I decided to give it a go and here’s my first one;

Q: How do I know the right choice?

You are born to be here, to be well, to show others all that is possible and all you can do. You are never here to struggle or to go where you do not want to go.

You are here to flow and this is always your goal, whatever brings flow through you, be there and so you can show all that is possible and all you can overcome. How well and how amazing you can be just through being you just as you are meant to be.

Let go of any need to please or conform and trust completely in who you are now; this is who you are now. If you continue to follow your flow I can promise you, you will be inspired and continue to inspire others, you will find and have all you need, all will be well, all is well, just trust and flow.

Connect with all your being and connect with all your rhythym, this is who you are. To connect that’s your goal; so to then be there for others. Keep going on the road less travelled, your surrounded by true souls, trust and let go, you know what to do , just trust, let go.

To live in gratitude is the way then all flows as can be, look around you, see the beauty, this is how we flow. Through being, in gratitude, in love, through flowing ,trusting, through letting go.

Breath and allow – always breath and let go , give in to this and you will always know. Know that you are loved and protected always.

Love, your soul

Live for the Journey ❤

Purest Soul

All open, all new
This beauty there in you
Your depth , your soul
The widest ocean, the deepest blue,
Such beauty there in you
The purest nature, the deepest soul
I see you, there as one
This pureness, this sparkling gold
Such wonder there in you
All around us; the purest soul

~ M.L. Adams

Your Soul

soul

I feel, I know

I feel, you know

I feel your soul

I see, I grow

I see your soul

I see, you know

You feel it too

I know you do

My soul is lost to you

~ M.L.Adams

This poem is written for someone who I feel close to on a very deep level, this experience was also what led me to begin writing poetry, as it was easier to express in this way. Some experiences in life can be difficult and hard to understand, but each experience always has a lesson or gift within it. This experience has taught me that some things just can’t be intellectualized, only experienced.

As Helen Keller said;

‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.’
