Inward dialogue at the Avalokiteshvara Ashram

Questioner: Why is it so difficult to serve the Niskala (invisible) realm?

Inner Teacher: Examine the experiences of the Buddha, Shri Krishna and Shri Ram.  Everyone went through hardships.  If it was easy, everyone could do it.  Because it is very difficult, only the chosen souls are chosen for this task.

Questioner: Every time you want to serve the Light, why does the dark world seem to be resisting?

Inner Teacher: As the stars thanking the dark night, thank the forces that seem to be resisting.  They will be dangerous if you are not smart, they will make you shine if you are smart.  As Lama Padmasambawa taught, as long as you are intelligent, burning fire can be turned into a blooming lotus.

Questioner: Our dream often gives signs.  Is it a secret door?

Inner Teacher : Of course!.  Note, be smart to read the signs of dreams.  Don’t use ordinary logic.  Use the logic of luminous souls.  Always take a point of view like this: “How can the omens complete service to the realm of Light?”.

Questioner: Because the journey is so complicated, who can be asked for help?

Inner Teacher: Since childhood you have been clearly taught to be less dependent on the outside.  Depends on the ability inside.  The quantum physicist deserves to be listened to: “Everything is just energy that vibrates”.  Thus vibrate at a higher level.

Questioner: Can you be more concrete so that our friends can understand better?

Inner Teacher: Learn from the Shamans (Earth’s oldest religion) who are very good at reading the signs of nature.  Then merge with the signs of nature.  So that you are “lifted” by the cycles and cycles of nature.

Questioner: Kindly share us some examples so that we can understand better

Inner Teacher : First, someone has sent you the official G20 meeting jacket.  Use it to increase the vibration through visualization.  As often as you can imagine yourself at the G20 meeting wearing that official jacket.

Second, lift the vibration with emotion.  Feel inside through gratitude, as if you had finished sharing the Light in front of the G20 leaders.  Imagine Joe Biden, Putin, etc. Smiling in awe at the peaceful teachings of the island of Bali that have been shared.

Third, unite with the process.  That is, fill your daily life with messages that you want to share with world leaders.  It’s as simple as children unwrapping gifts: “Relax, then prepare to receive gifts”.

Lastly, in the Ashram the winds have been stronger than usual for the past few days.  Transform from “I hate”, to “I love”.  Leave the old habit of “I hate strong winds”, whisper inward: “The wind tells us that nature is full of joy”.  In this way, you will be “lifted up” by nature’s cycle.  So that hands of help will come from all directions.

Questioner: Deepest Thank you.  Bow down from the bottom of my heart.

Note: At the time this dialogue was written, the wind in the Ashram produced harmonious natural musical sounds.  May all beings be happy.

About the author

H.H. Guruji 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.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
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.
