Step Into The Fire of Self-Discovery

Mooji is a spiritual teacher originally from Jamaica. He moved to Brixton in London as a teenager and became a street portrait artist in the West End, and later taught art at a local college. In 1987 at a chance meeting with a Christian mystic, he had a life-changing encounter through prayer, that brought him into the direct experience of the Supreme within. This inspired him to “walk out of his life” and in 1993 he embarked on a spiritual journey through India, eventually landing at the feet of the man who became his Master, the late Sri HWL Poonja, AKA Papaji. Following in his footsteps Mooji now regularly conduct large Satsang gatherings throughout the world, sharing self-inquiry and directing his students to question, who or what they are at the deepest level.

Who is God? — Mooji Extends an Invitation to Go Within

According to Mooji, his spiritual path began when he trained as a Christian mystic. The prayers that he prayed during this time led him to ask several questions and to look within on a deeper level.

He asked questions of himself and his inner reality, the existence of God if God exists, and if so, who God is. While the profundity of the answers Mooji received can’t be boiled down to a single answer, what he came away with is that all is one, and we are all a part of this “all”.

While that might sound like a riddle, it really is the kind of thing that you can only understand through contemplation and learning to be one with the present moment.

Mooji goes into depth about this in his episode and explains how everyone has a responsibility to go within and raise their consciousness. If we all do this, the world’s consciousness will rise and can lead to tremendous change as a result.

The Ego Clouds Our Judgment

Not only are we all one, but any separation between life and death are also merely an illusion. We’re collectively part of the same being that is experiencing itself, and this happens in the present moment.

When you can learn to be one with the present moment rather than rejecting it out of fear, past hurts and future worries, you will be able to experience this oneness, which many Christians refer to as the Kingdom of Heaven.

One way to experience this, which Mooji advocates, is through a meditative practice.

Meditation is a spiritual process that helps you to free yourself of the ego’s grip on your thinking, being and way of life. This can be done as yoga, or can be done by simply learning to be still and calm, and watching your breathing.

By doing this, you can detach from the voice in your head that is filled with monotonous chatter, fear and insecurity — otherwise known as the ego.

When you meditate and continuously come back to the recognition that we are one and that the only real thing is the present moment, you can quiet the ego and live at peace.

Keep Seeking Answers

When you can live at peace in the present moment, you will be better able to show up in your life and have abundance and joy. This sets a strong foundation for you to follow your dreams and live whatever life you choose.

Mooji has dedicated his life to these principles and how we can all live them.
