Awakening the Guru Principle

posted in: Meditation, Yoga 0

This is taken from the Satsang in Class 29 of my weekly yogic meditation classes on my Youtube Channel:

Guru Chakra is where we experience the Guru Principle – where we experience the cosmos with qualities of wisdom and knowledge . . . and where we learn command of our identity.

Guru Principle is Divine Principle . . . the experience of the Divine Child within, or Essence. We awaken to this essence and experience ourselves in Universal language when we have been initiated by our teacher or master, through the maturation process of our practice and our spiritual experiences . . . becoming awakened to knowledge and inner wisdom of life’s fundamental questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my relationship with the Divine?

This process of initiation is important because it is leading the student, or disciple to the point at which we experience the bridge between our humanity and Divine Consciousness and then from this point of awakening onwards we are capable of guiding ourselves with wisdom and becoming master of our own identity.

As you now know from our meditation practices, without training and strengthening our focus of concentration, we can’t experience the necessary inner silence and stillness to experience the energy of Guru Chakra . . . without the steps of our path we don’t attain the maturity we need for practice, and this of course is initiation . . . emotional, psychological, spiritual . . . .

. . . it is the inner stillness and silence that creates the space within for our experience of witnessing.

We don’t need to seek truth, it is all around us . . . we need to witness it. When we’ve cultured the qualities of clarity and wisdom, then Guru Principle has been awakened . . . along with the ability to discriminate between truth and untruth, reality and unreality.

You can deduce that this process and principle is far, far more vastly powerful and sacred than the claims of teachers, for example in short Youtube videos, who claim the glamour of “opening the third eye” . . . and the reason for my emphasis on your training over these classes and my careful guidance through this process, as I am not there with you in person to guide your initiation.

So, in our nervous centres we react to the language of the Universe, cosmic rhythms – the planets speaking to us in Divine terms of patterns and cycles of energy – these reactions we have in the nerve plexuses associated with our Chakras. But the energetic centres, our gateways to cosmic vibrations, which are more psychic, are experienced closer to the spine in our human mindbody. And, as you know, Guru, Agya of Ajna Chakra is the energetic centre at the top of the spine – where masculine and feminine, divine masculine and divine feminine, divine and the mother or power of nature, heaven and earth, meet within us to create the Divine Child within our Essence . . . knowledge of which gives us our identity.

Your Guru knows your identity: you are not what you do . . . what you are, is this essence within, this Divine Child.

When you awaken to this knowledge, this is the evolution of your consciousness . . . which the guru or master treats as sacred, honouring the spirit dwelling within your human mindbody.

So, the Guru represents the Universal, Divine Principle that leads us from darkness to light – which means from ignorance to knowledge, from death to immortality: and immortality means the eternal nature of your Soul.

When disciple and Master unite, when the “Guru Principle” has been awakened in the consciousness of the disciple and the disciple begins to guide himself, the disciple then becomes his own master.

I want to leave you with this: it is knowledge from one particular planetary cycle going on for another couple of years . . .

“ . . . we are not likely to get much reinforcement from others at this time and could be forced to rely on inner resources and self-confidence. We should not expect others to provide us with backbone; we need to provide our own. “

And there is a lesson to be learned here: “The more we identify with what we do rather than what we are, the more difficulties this influence will cause . . .

. . . you are not what you do.

When we confront these issues of: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my relationship with the Divine? Then we learn to handle life much more successfully because we don’t always have to protect ourself.”
Qualities of command, knowledge and wisdom protect us.




Susan Ni Rahilly has reached an interesting point in her life now that she’s in her mid-sixties: as an author/publisher and Zen, Yoga and Meditation teacher she considers herself “trans-genre”—a multi-dimensional teacher inspired by Ancient roots of both Zen and Yoga. These roots reach back to Divine Feminine practices and inspire her ongoing research into our innate abilities for deep listening and intuitive practice: awakening and accelerating our Spiritual Vision as change-agents for Humanity’s future. She is also the Spoken Word Artist SuZen.



Susan has launched the Membership for her website The Kindest Revolution – it distills all her teaching, learning and wisdom from the past 30+ odd years and she says it’s for the “Geniuses, Visionaries, Change-makers and Sacred Creatives” who can take our world forward into a very different future.
