087. Krishna Gauci

Krishna GauciKrishna can be a catalyst for the awakening transformation of your life. He also appears to be a pretty ordinary guy. For most of his life he has been driven by a desire to know the power that moves the universe. In this mad quest for authentic spiritual realization he has been blessed to come across the right people at the right time. Besides working as a spiritual coach and teacher and being trained in hypnotherapy, he has also been a cabinetmaker, an auto assembly line worker, a New York City taxi cab driver and a bus driver. He has lived real life as a down to earth human being and knows that the truth of spirituality is always tested there.

His experience is that you will never have exactly what you want and that you are already what you’re looking for. His sense is that you don’t need to be taught as much as you need to be understood and heard. He is well versed in several spiritual maps but he knows that who you are is beyond any map. You are the changeless and you are always changing, and he relates to you as both.

Since you are what you’re looking for, he is only always pointing you to a deep trust in your own deepest life: Being itself.
He does this in one on one sessions and in groups through talks, guided meditation, questions and answers, gazing transmission and silent sitting. His presence enlivens that which is guiding you from within and calls you into your own life. He welcomes you into an awakening that is totally yours, and totally beyond you. Krishna invites everyone to roll up their sleeves and celebrate the paradox of being both Infinite and finite simultaneously. His sleeves are rolled up too.

  1. chuckee ~ “Anatol… Your ideas of love are full of conditions. What do you think love is?”

    chuckee, could you clarify… what conditions are you talking about?… i don’t feel i placed any conditions on anyone…

    LOVE cannot be imposed on anyone… actually LOVE is our true nature… just like awakening in awareness… either you started opening to it or not… and it’s expressing as compassion or not… i’m just sharing my experiences… and a few quotes… not trying to impose anything on anyone…

    laziness?… we all know what that is… it applies to everything… and yes… sometimes it’s nice to just be lazy… and relax… if our relaxation is deep enough it will fill us with energy… which will spur us to some activity…

    i’m simply wanting to gently … if that is possible… remind everyone about the golden rule… which does work… and should be impetus enough to “practice” compassion… if you want…

  2. chuckee… whose concepts? … mine or yours?…

    “We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.”

    let me rephrase that… seems to me… you do not see what my words are pointing to…
    but rather judging them… with your fixed concepts…
    which perhaps are based on a few glimpses of “awareness-head-awakening”… you had…
    from what you posted here…

    and not taking Mooji’s caution … “do not make any tattoos out of utterances” …
    seems to me you’re stuck in the head… with memories…
    which now sound like psudeo-advaita double talk… since you said you lost it… and not stable in pure awareness…

    so much has been written about experiences & expressions of pure unconditional LOVE…
    even here by our resident poet SL… and beautiful expressions by Radhanath, Burt Harding & others…
    i resonate with much of it because of my experiences…

    what else can i say… except i pray that everyone’s heart opens…
    to the pure LOVE within… which is our essence… along with pure awareness…
    for a truly genuine awakening…

    awaken in the head… heart… gut… don’t get stuck in pseudo-advaita-head-talk…

    a catholic priest… Father Bruni… whose presence was quite awakened… taught this technique for expanding the heart…
    start with something someone who you truly love… place them within your heart…
    overtime… add another… and another… and another… until your heart contains all…

    yes it is possible to start with worldly duality love… and let it expand… into the unity of divine love…

    if none of this makes any sense to you…
    here’s the Hawaiian ho’opono-pono prayer… i’m sorry… please forgive me… thank you… i love you… and have a good night… oops… good morning…

  3. another good book… a poor substitute for doing… and being… but all have to start somewhere… and communicate to others… somehow… “Love for No Reason” by Marci Shimoff …

  4. further clarification…

    LOVE for me is not a concept in my mind… it expresses itself … as a feeling in my heart… almost continuous… more and more … and overall my reaction to experiences are less and less… more responsive than reactive…

    and sometimes feel that words are doing it injustice…

  5. sorry chuckee… you said you liked scrappy sometimes…
    love is scrappy sometimes… it unmasks all our fears…
    Amma says “opening of the heart” can be painful…
    sometimes very painful… perhaps that’s why many delay it…

    being stuck in the head… denying the love that you are in the heart…
    has been mentioned many times in batgap interviews…
    by the interviewees…

    love… in unity with awareness… expresses itself in innumerable ways…
    to label all these expressions of love as concepts in the mind…
    is a concept in the mind…

    to box up “love” in advaitic non-dual expressions is limiting it…

    SL… concerning reading books… which some say they are beyond… i understand … having been there several times myself…

    but good books always show up at appropriate times… like “The Journey Home”…

    Adya said reading many Christian Mystics helped him to open heart…

    Tolle apparently read quite a few books… after his awakening… judging from his bibliography on wikipedia… and probably borrowed the “NOW” angle from Meister Eckhart… whose name he also borrowed…

    proclaiming one is finished reading all books… which i have done myself in the past… is limiting… is placing unnecessary conditions…

  6. refine your sentences to impact less more for
    who is irrationally-not listning-
    by the reason of long historical phrasologiest.

  7. in the giving hoplessly the culture conditioning
    programed with devines sedation dus-
    I explain he who gives gets and I and he who
    recieves gets and I-
    what dream i cant remember the intensity
    of my love comming home was uncontrolable.
    my sisters were there- befor there was barking
    lot and there was place ,was not sure
    there was a fire –
    the dream probably mission accomplished-
    the outline of an opinion is outlined by
    a glaze of society condemnation to keep
    so many Is in the prison-
    languge is the master.
