One who lives consciously attains the flowering of godliness. Living consciously is to live in a godly way.

Awareness is the master key of the whole journey of the inner journey. The essence of living consciously is awareness, which is the basis all religiousness. Awareness leads to glimpses of concscious moments when the mind stops and the dream of the mind is broken.

God is not a person. God is the ultimate state of consciousness.

Godliness is a state of being. Godliness is the ultimate flowering of the sudden that is hidden deep within ourselves.

As you approach closer to this state, you will become more och more godly. To become godly is the ultimate search and the deepest thirst of our heart. To surrender to godliness means to surrender to our highest potential.

Godliness is a desireless consciousness. It is to be in accord with the divine. It is to surrender and flow with the current of existence.

Godliness means to become satisfied with yourself as you are and feel that you don’t need anything more. I am enough in myself.

Godliness means absolute contentment in this moment. It is to be content with what is – a total acceptance of everything, a feeling of total gratitude.

These satsang is supported by silent satsang with Giten, which is a direct insight and experience of being, of the divine.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”

A spiritual teacher, who have counselled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”

During these satsangs with Giten, we will explore two keys to discover our being, the godliness within: 1. Flowering of Godliness: The drop & the ocean and 2. Meditation – The Art of Dissolving.


1. Flowering of Godliness: The drop & the ocean

Godliness, the divine, is fearsome. It is not really the divine that is fearsome, but it is your own fear.

You are afraid of the divine, and it is good to understand the reason for your fear, which this satsang with Giten will help you to understand.

It is like a drop is afraid before it falls into the ocean, because to fall into the ocean means to dissolve, to disappear.

It is natural for the drop to feel fear to meet the ocean, because it means its death and death creates fear.

But if the drop also realizes that there is another aspect: that dissolving into the ocean also means that the drop will disappear as a drop, and that it will become one with the vast, with the divine, with the eternal, with the deathless.

The drop would realize that its death is also the opening to godliness, to the divine.

The divine can either be the embodiment of fear or love, but it depends on our own viewpoint.

When we begin to seek the truth there comes a moment of disappearing into the silence.

A moment comes when we have to lose oneself, which makes us afraid. We are afraid of death, because it will efface you. Existence will snatch away your ego – that is the great death. Even after ordinary death, you will remain: only your body will die, but not your being, your soul.

The greatest death is to dissolve into godliness, into the divine.

But existence is not feared for those who are ready to lose themselves, who are ready to disappear. The existence is the embodiment of love.

Love means the readiness to disappear, to dissolve. Love means that the ego will dissolve.

For those who are ready to lose themselves, great love will arise in his or her life and bliss will shower on him or her.

One who is courageous at that moment is a true seeker.

You cannot know godliness until you lose yourself.

 

2. Meditation – The Art of Dissolving

In music, poetry, dance and love, you disappear for a moment, and then you are back again, but poetry, music, dance and love are poor substitutes for meditation.

Someone who goes deep into meditation will come to a point when he or she becomes afraid of disappearing – just as a drop takes the jump into the ocean.

Meditation is the art of dissolving. Meditation is a death. In meditation you will learn to die and to be reborn. Meditation is a Death, but it is also a rejoicement, a resurrection. It will be a totally new fresh and original being, it will be fresh eyes and it will be a totally new heart.

Then you will be a hollow bamboo. The existence will sing songs through you, it will dance dances through you. Existence will express itself, and you will be a hollow bamboo.

Meditation will make you a hollow bamboo, and that empty heart belongs to existence itself.

Meditation creates a fear of death. You don’t know after death whether there is going to be a rejoicement, a resurrection or not. That is why a spiritual teacher is needed to give you trust. You need someone who has travelled the path and who can show you the way to take the quantum leap into silence. You need someone who can create courage, trust and understanding for you.

 

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN

Giten experienced his first satori, his first glimpse of spiritual awakening, when he was 9 years old. This created a deep thirst and longing in his heart and being to return to this natural and effortless experience of being one with the Whole.

Swami Dhyan Giten has dedicated his life to teach the art of awareness and meditation. He conducts individual consultations, seminars and courses internationally. His quotes, articles and books have touched the hearts of thousands and are appearing with increasing frequency in magazines, blogs and websites.

Since he began to meditate when he was 15 years old, he has dedicated his life to the study and exploration of the inner journey in order to move out of his own way, to be in a flow, and to discover the authentic inner being, the meditative quality within, the inner silence and emptiness, the capacity to surrender to life.

He does not belong to any spiritual group or tradition; he is only interested to explore what it means to live with open eyes.

Giten’s first professional passion when he was 15 years old was to become an actor. After training as an actor, he worked as an actor until he was 23 years old. Working as actor taught him a lot about life and to emphatically understand the situation and life of other people, since acting is really a spiritual occupation. It taught him about spirituality, since working as an actor means to play a role totally, while at the same time as you know deep down that you are not the role you are playing. After working as an actor for a number of years, Giten began to understand that his early passion for theatre was really an unconscious search for a spiritual discipline. When he realized this, he began to feel a thirst to work with people in a more direct way in awareness and meditation.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: “You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can.”

A spiritual teacher, who has counseled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: “You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva’s are just here to help you to get enlightened.”

He is author of the best-selling book in Swedish “Meditationens Sång – Om meditation, relationer och andlig kreativitet” (Solrosens forlag, 2001, available from Internet book store Adlibris: www.adlibris.com), and “The Silent Whisperings of the Heart – An Introduction to Giten’s Approach to Life” (2008, available as paperback at Internet book store Lulu.com: www.lulu.com/spotlight/Giten), Presence – Working from Within.
