We were Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies. We don’t think he should be confirmed. - The Washington Post
No one should be able to lie their way onto the Supreme Court. Honesty is the glue that holds together a society of laws. Lies are the solvent that dissolves those bonds.

How The Mind Keeps Men Bound And Gagged - Siddha Performance
If you wish to take a slave on a trip, you cannot ask the slave. You must ask the slave’s owner.

...

Aristotle Onassis’ father must have learned this lesson. For he told his son, “When you meet a man, write down how much time he is worth.”

...

Why does man not take action?

Because the mind has him bound and gagged.

...

Why does the mind have him bound and gagged?

Because of the mind’s love-hate relationship with change.

The mind likes new things. It likes changes of scenery. It enjoys vacations. New smells. New clothes. And so on.

...

You see, the mind is a coating of wax on a dirty car. The dirt remains preserved forever.

...

The difference between the superstar athlete and the one who struggles throughout his career is that one enjoys being a superstar and the other enjoys struggle.

The Most Honest, Simple, Pure, and Painful Truth About Achieving Success - Siddha Performance
The person who asks for tips [ reg success / to succeed ] is the very same person who isn’t going to follow any of them.

...

Success is a natural byproduct of hunger.

...

I am saying that the reason that you are where you are is because you are okay with being where you are.

...

When you absolutely despise where you are. When it’s suffocating you. When it simply is no longer acceptable to you, you will act.

...

The source of your greatest momentum will not be the happiness that pulls you, but the pain that pushes you.

A Letter To The Superhuman - Siddha Performance
I will state a great Truth.

You have adopted the habits and behaviors of mortal men.

Society is your enemy. You cannot afford to wear any of its colors. You cannot afford to wave its flag.

Society is a vortex which consumes those who allow themselves to be consumed.

One of the habits of society that you have inculcated is the oscillation between Mind and No-Mind.

Master, Can You Not Journey With People For Free? - Siddha Performance
S: What is the Truth, Master?

M: If I tell you, you will consider it. As you consider it, you will either believe or not believe. If you believe it, you will not have understood. If you do not believe it, you will not have understood.

...

S: I still would like to hear it.

M: I have no interest in wasting my words, student. Curiosity does not inspire me to reveal anything to anyone.

...

S: I am frustrated . . . And also envious, Master. In a way, I find myself angry with you. You have done nothing to me. But I am frustrated that I have not found the answers, despite years of effort. And I am angry and envious that you have. Why should these come to you and not to me? Please forgive me, Master.

...

S: Then why does the Truth come to you and not to me?

M: Because I am more serious than you.

S: That is indeed head-on. The universe does not give lee way, I suppose.

M: Why should it, student? Why should it give its most glorious riches to one who is not sufficiently sincere? This world is full of pretenders, my student. Every day they beg to have an audience with me. They say lofty things. They feign sincerity. If I agree to seem them and begin to speak of what it will take to realize the Truth, they make all kinds of excuses. They cannot do this. They cannot do that. They will have to wait until the time is right. Someday they will return. True sincerity, being All-in, the willingness to beg, borrow, and steal if one must . . . Such humans are one in a million, student. One in a million.

The Room Of Devotion - Siddha Performance
I said to him, “Because you have not yet decided to walk the True Journey. And do not for one second assume that I am telling you to walk it. That would not be genuine. Each person, if he wishes to become a Bruce Lee, must arrive at the point in his life in which he slams his fist on the table and he decides. He decides that from this point forward, I am going to devote my life to THIS.”

Life And Nature Don't Give A Damn - Siddha Performance

Nature doesn’t either.

Neither of them give a damn.

A Quiet Conversation With A Young Prince - Siddha Performance
Me: Your suffering does not come from conquest. Your suffering comes from the significance that you attach to it.

You: Do you not believe conquest to be significant?

Me: Tell me, young prince. If you do not conquer, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: If you succeed in conquering, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: Then how can there be any significance?

...

Me: My dear prince, the bliss is in the conquering. Suffering is in the “having conquered.”

You: No significance.

Me: Indeed, young prince . . . Indeed.

The Secret Training That Bestows Instant Enlightenment Upon Any Man Or Woman Who Touches It - Siddha Performance
In that glorious masterpiece of a film, Bravheart, there is a scene that comes to mind.

William Wallace, the leader of Scotland’s resistance has been captured and imprisoned by his enemy, The English King. During his imprisonment, the woman who would be the English Queen comes to visit Wallace in prison.

She says to Wallace, “Sir, I come to beg you to confess all, and swear allegiance to the king, that he might show you mercy.”

To which Wallace replies, “If I swear to him, then everything I am is dead already.”

...

Never in all my life have I attempted to coax any man away from his sensibilities. Never have I attempted to “motivate” anyone. For if I do, then I am dead already.

...

I respect Tony Robbins for some of his insights, for some of them are undeniably correct. But his attempts to “motivate” and “energize” and “scream” and “dance” are sugar highs that leave a man by the time he reaches the parking lot. It is silly. And completely fruitless.

...

Never try to awaken a man who wishes to stay asleep.

...

For years I wanted to know what the zone was. As I look upon my shelf I see at least two books on “the zone.” They spend 300 pages saying that time slows down and things become effortless.

...

The zone, my dear friend, is a state of No-Mind.

...

So what does this mean for you?

What it means is that when a man who undergoes a special training to learn to Stop Thinking, he gains Clarity.

He gains Atmamun (the mind of the spirit).

...

And when you converse with a family member in this glorious state, your family member falls in love with you all over again.

When you speak to a business associate or an employee or a prospective client in this state, your words and your presence send a signal to the person’s mind that you are a Stalwart and a Master for whom they would do anything.

...

Put succinctly: The inability to curb involuntary thought is the single most pervasive Cancer of all mankind!

...

Devote one small part of your life to this one single training, and as sure as the night follows the day, all of the things listed above will become your living reality.

Becoming Napoleon And Buddha: The Untold Secrets To Leading Your Business Empire - Siddha Performance
how to become a great leader

...

Listen to your team, communicate as efficiently as possible, be an example, be passionate, be consistent, make firm decisions, identify mentors and role models, interfere only when necessary, know your limits, know your strengths, know your weaknesses, don’t make excuses, do good, meet new people, temper your reactions, and have fun . . .

...

To lead your empire, you must understand human beings.

...

You need only understand the heart which beats within them. And the mind which mercilessly rules them.

...

If you wish to get them to do something, you must provide for them a vision.

...

Understand, my friend, that this empire will not make you whole. You must arrive whole.

...

Your army must see in You what they’ve always longed to see in themselves.

...

Understand, my friend, that man is hungry for a journey more than he is hungry for a job.

He will appease you if you feed his stomach. But he will walk with you to the end of the earth if you feed his soul.

...

Slowly, carefully, and strategically, we will tease away the sinews and vines that keep you tethered to your destructive mind.

For it is bound by you. And you are bound by it.

Looking Into Your Eyes. And Calling Your Bluff - Siddha Performance
“These people listen and nod their heads but they don’t Act upon the advice. That is the problem.”

...

Because the vast majority of men and women are not interested in any sincere journey toward Everest. They’re interested in being Entertained by stories about Everest.

As for Vipassana, I will gladly attend it. On one condition.

If those who exit the Vipassana hall are equanimous, regardless of the circumstance, I will attend.

If you continually refine your Questions, you will create a magnificent journey.

That which is organic invites the innocent hand of alchemy.

Welcome To Siddha Performance - Siddha Performance
Human beings have been told a great truth. But with a terrible omission.

They have been told that the mind is the most powerful tool in the world.

But what they have not been told is that in order to Use this tool, they must first become separate from it.

The mind stands as a veil between man and his true life.

It stands as a barrier between man and his otherworldly capabilities.

And this is precisely because man lives enslaved to the mind. As such, man has become a tool for the mind.

This one truth is the source of ALL of man’s miseries, distractions, vices, habits, conflicts, and mediocrities.

Once we learn what the mind fundamentally is, we learn to distance ourself from it. And in doing so, we gain instant CLARITY.

...

The world is awash in “instructions” and “prescriptions.” I have no use for such things.

For if you tell a man “how” to do something, he will forever be subservient to the How. And never to The Thing.

“Instruction” does not create knowledge. It creates dependency.

...

And the holy grail of human existence, human performance, and human perfection: The State of No-Mind.

Asceticism Is Inevitable - Siddha Performance
I’m reminded of a householder who visited a Swami in the Himalayas.

He said, “Swamiji, you are such a great man. As an ascetic, you have sacrificed everything in order to seek The Truth.”

The Swami replied, “My dear man, I have left behind all those things because they brought me pain. You live amidst such unbelievable pain, attached to all the things of this world. I am at peace. You are in turmoil. It is you who has made the ultimate sacrifice.”
