False security is the biggest danger in life

Are you centred only on logic?
Do you feel accumulation of wealth gives you tremendous security?
Do you always plan precisely your whole day routine?

If your answer is a ‘YES’ to any one of the above questions, you are a person living in the length dimension. Length dimension means anything with a systematic logical flow, a repeated flow with the same logic every time. Whatever is known in the Universe, 99.99% is logic. But the Universe comprises both the Manifest (Vyakta) and the Unmanifest (Avyakta) components. The unfortunate thing is our society can only grasp the length dimension which is rooted on logic. Hence, the collective unconsciousness in society creates an imaginary security using the illusionary concept of electronic currency and the zeros in the bank balance. With electronic money, you may be better secured but not absolutely secured. This is because relative security is not real absolute security. People who are constantly striving for security in life with money will find themselves cheated by life as all it takes is an accident to wake them up and they will realize that they are living in illusion. Security and wealth are the false security which makes human beings not seek the true security in life. The false security is the biggest danger in length dimension.

In Vedic tradition, money is not Lakshmi (a Hindu Goddess who represents the energy of wealth, fortune and abundance), using money so that you allow it to flow as currency is Lakshmi. Hoarding the money is known as Kubera wealth that neither allows you to enjoy the wealth nor others can enjoy the wealth. Instead the flow of currency is Lakshmi wealth where you treat money cheaply by sharing generously and allow Lakshmi to follow you. Fundamentally, the absolute wealth is the number of hours you are intensely alive in a day without being affected by your hormones or other external factors. That is real security because you are not touched by anything external, you are centred from within!

In the breathing space of a living avatar

How many people get to spend 3 months in the breathing space of a living incarnation (avatar)?

I am one of the 92 blessed beings from a database of 17,000 devotees specially handpicked by my Guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) to be part of this 3-month program called Nithyananda Yogam. This program was designed by Swamiji to give the participants a glimpse of the mystical yet divine experience he had with his Guru, Arunagiri Yogeswhara (an incarnation of Lord Shiva) at the age of 9. The space of deep love and devotion in a casual setting which he revered with Arunagiri Yogeswhara, Swamiji is opening up this sweet space for us to have a taste of this unique Guru-disciple relationship. Literally we get to live with him in his breathing space in his courtyard called Adikaranandi in this campus. I belong to the second batch of Nithyananda Yogam called Navaratri batch since the program started before the celebration of Navaratri (9 nights of celebrating Cosmic Mother).
