Inner dialogue at Ashram Avalokiteshvara : The fountain of clarity from Bali

Written by Gede Prama

Questioner: The world is super complicated.  If it is not prohibited by the government, humans can die from the virus.  At the same time because human movement is restricted, the economy downturn become very touching. Many people can die of starvation.  What is behind such a super complicated phenomenon?

Inner Guru: Man created so many things, now they are become super complicated by their own creation.  Especially technology.  Initially, technology sat at the bottom as a servant.  Now he sits arrogantly on top as master.  Technology that sits arrogantly on top, then conspires with a handful of people who make profits

Questioner: What should be done so that more people can be healthy and safe?

Inner Guru: In the midst of darkness, Light is the thing that we all needed the most, in the midst of hot summer, cool water is the one that we needed the most.  In the same way, amid the complexity, then clarity is very important. Make the steps more clear and get out of the panic first.  Then help other people to be back to basics.

Questioner: Can you explain more clearly about the panic of people everywhere?

Inner Guru: Panic people are like humans who are too afraid of snakes.  So that every tiniest rope releases the excess adrenaline inside.  Excess adrenaline is smelled by the scary spooky realms as an energy that is thought dangerous and want to attack them.  Since they felt like they were going to be attacked, some will attacked first.  The end of course becomes super complicated like this.  Things get super complicated because there are a handful of people who want to reap huge profits from this type of panic.  People becomes panic because reading & seeing too many hoaxes (fake news).

Questioner: If so, what is needed most to get people out of panic?

Inner Guru: Humanity needs a role model who is super clear in seeing these complexity.  That is, stay healthy with this complexity.  When it comes to people who are dying, there are people dying all the time.  And it’s very natural.  Another face of clarity, it is better to know a little but is save, than to know too much but becoming mess up.  And among all the clarity, the clearest is this: “Viruses don’t kill.  It is the low immune system that makes the virus can kill.”  Invite those who are interested in clearing things up to concentrate on one very basic thing, namely maintaining immunity.  From there many doors will open.

Questioner: Can you go into more detail about immunity, so that many people can be healthy and safe

Inner Guru: as you already know, there is immunity that is naturally innate, there is also immunity that can be obtained from the outside (acquired).  Sadly, what the panic-inducing fake news destroys is the immune system on the inside.  A chaos and frantic mind leaks too much of the energy.  The body that lacks too much energy is the opening door for a drastically decreased immunity.  So the first step is to learn to be a savior hero for yourself.  Politely isolate yourself from all sources of panic.  Once the leakage of energy through the mind can be stopped, learn to connect with the energy source.  Before you can connect with the energy source inside, invite other people to connect with the energy source outside.  Nutrition straight from nature (various fresh vegetables and fruits), vitamin D from sunlight, fresh air in less populated areas, maintaining a happy family are some of the options in this regard.  Bringing the physical body, mental body and spiritual body into harmony is highly recommended advice.  Since the brain’s biochemical reactions are the meeting point between these three bodies, train yourself seriously to be grateful.  Gratitude makes the brain release less toxins, as well as more medicine.  Armed with inner harmony, then build a bridge between inner harmony and outer harmony.  The practical steps, see everything are perfect in their own place.  It’s as simple as a fish in the water, a bird in a tree, a butterfly in the garden.  Once the inner harmony is perfectly fused with the outer harmony, there one begins to connect with the energy center in nature.

Questioner: Many people have difficulty in aligning themselves with the natural surroundings.  Mainly because of public information as if nature is dirty and full of poison.

Inner Guru: That is the problem.  Nature is like a clear mirror.  If someone face is dirty, they will see dirty things in the mirror, if a person face is clean, they will see a clean face in the mirror.  More practical steps, take care of the cleanliness of the natural surroundings.  At least not by littering.  It is good to keep everything clean and beautiful.  Then the beautiful natural scenery around gives birth to a more beautiful insight into the natural surroundings.  Once that happens, be in tune with the natural surroundings.  For example, when the weather outside moves toward the cold, warm up.  If you can not generate the inner kundalini energy, just eat foods (drinks) that warms the body.  When outside is poor in light because of the rainy season, for example, quickly learn to find the light inside.  Especially through the practice of mindfulness.

Questioner: Many people like messages that are concise, dense but deep

Inner Guru: The point is to maintain balance.  That’s why many human disciplines put balance at the center of their search.  Medical science loves homeostasis.  Economics loves equilibrium.  Lawyers like to talk about justice.  Psychology likes the sociobiome (balance between solitude and crowd).  It is all about balance.  It is hard to imagine there is darkness if Light is present.  It is hard to imagine any suffering if one grows completely in balance.

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
