Take a Moment
In this moment and in our discussions and work together, if you stick to your opinion, and we stick to ours, then there is no real meeting because neither of us is free to inquire. If you assert your knowledge, your narrative, your experience, and if we stick to ours, then there are still two. Not one. Duality, not union. Separation. We never really meet.
True communication is communion, and it has its own beauty of truth. It is like talking things over together as two friends who are looking and living in the world together, and finding out step by step together. A flower doesn’t give you anything, maybe a smile or its fragrance. Or you give it a smile. But you love it for just being. For its floweriness. Can we be sensitive, active and alert in our observation? Don’t try to pluck it, don’t try to capture it, because that would kill it, just let it be, love it for its existence.
When there is a space of love with freedom and sensitivity, mind's journey of discovery does lead to discovery, but what we discover is not of a lot of significance. What's important is to die to what you have discovered and to keep going on. Keep flowing. If you stay with what you have discovered, then mind gets conditioned, or attached and it is conflicted. This experience in the next moment, if carried in memory becomes knowledge and becomes conditioning. And in the next moment, it is that image or knowledge or conditioning with which we meet life. So key is to die to what you discover and keep flowing like a stream with abundance of strength, love, clarity and space.
Through Emerge, we are introducing a person to himself, herself, and giving them ways to self inquire and understand the world. All of us are in our respective relative realities at every point of time, and are shaped by our past experiences, learnings, and motivated by our desires. Emerge aims at understanding of our own self, by developing the ability to observe our own lives and relationships, to be able to think freely, and to be able to love everyone alike, beyond the physical, social and psychological differentiations. Emerge aims to take you from lower planes of consciousness to higher planes of consciousness, and it further gives you the ability to understand life in totality, and take total action towards the self, the society and the nature.
Understanding Action at Emerge
At Emerge, we see that problems exist on a psychological plane of reality, and manifests into the physical reality, in our relationships and interaction with-in, and with-out. We see that a change is needed in the very psyche of the human being, so that there is a complete change, and not a temporary modification which human beings show because of a fear of punishment or reward.
Understanding of the Self and its relationships flowers mindfulness, intelligence, love and understanding, and creates order and harmony. And understanding has nothing to do with intellectual analysis.

Ms. Christina Deng - South Sudan Women's National Basketball Team
In March 2020, I was fortunate enough to meet one of the greatest teachers, whom I refer to, as Mr. Devesh. He has taught me a lot, from being self conscious to being selfless.
I remember a class with Mr. Devesh where I had to make a draft resolution to be presented at my University Model UN Paper ( Queens University of Charlotte), and my topic was on LGBTQI Communities. In my research I learned about how LGBTQI community has been treated all these years and they were never accepted in the society .
I have learned from Mr. Devesh that we shouldn't divide us as I, she, her, mine, yours. We should think of ourselves as one and that's the way people can together move forward. So I am blessed enough to go through the training with Mr. Devesh for 30 + hours with him, and it was such a great experience with him. There were certain times when I wouldn't understand something, but Mr. Devesh was able to take a step back and gave such beautiful examples to make me see it.
And I will say he is one of the greatest, I have crossed paths with.
