Exclusive book excerpt: Tony Samara’s “Deeper than Words”

Tony Samara is one of the most profound new spiritual teachers in Europe. As a favor to Soul’s Code, he gave us this advanced excerpt of his new book

BY TONY SAMARAMeditation is not just a repetition of your characteristics that you put into practice in everyday motion and life. Meditation is being a revolutionary. It is being a rebel and breaking free from what is holding the space in this negative little world that we believe to be the truth. To be different takes a little bit of courage.

It’s not courage by doing crazy things on the outside like some people do, ‘OK, let’s create havoc because the system doesn’t work.’ It’s actually being courageous within oneself so that you can work with what is creating the sense of fear, the sense of belittlement, and the sense of low self-esteem. This means to go down the path where that space is being created.

This is where control doesn’t want to go to because it’s afraid of this aspect. This meditation asks you to go deeper into that aspect where the part of you that feels vulnerable is and into the part of you that says, ‘Oh no, this is not the place I want to go to and explore any further. Let me just control it a bit better.’ That space is where this meditation goes to and that space is usually located in a physical part of your body.

Meditation needs to be practiced where the space is made clear. If the space is not clear, whether it be the space that you’re creating for yourself, for example, internal mechanisms such as fear, doubt, or external ones where other people begin to doubt you or to project their limitations onto you, it is the same.

Some people find it difficult because they work by always criticizing themselves, ‘Gosh, why am I so silly? Why do I do such stupid things? Why is it that this always happens to me?’ You see it in the breath, you see it in the way the person walks, you see it in the way the whole body expresses the fear of just stepping any further because that might create more disharmony. And this is a more introverted type of person and a more complex type of person because often when we do this to ourselves, it’s very vague, and it doesn’t have concrete aspects that we can work with.

You can see it with people who externalize this, such as politicians who say, ‘We have to stop people from understanding a problem because it may create more problems,’ and the politicians are usually extroverted.

Many other people who blame others do that. ‘It’s your fault. It has nothing to do with me. I’m OK, don’t you know. I’m OK. Of course I’m OK. It’s you who has the problem and you that has to be controlled. I am free.’ Those people are usually very clever because they are not people that deal only with themselves, they are usually people that deal with many other people.

They are usually people that could be termed as charismatic or dogmatic and in that sense, they attract hundreds or thousands of people, and because those thousands of people are internally so afraid—in the same way that the charismatic external person is also afraid but with the mechanisms working differently — the external person, or the politician, is able to touch the fears of a person and control their whole being by bringing more limitations into their space. These limitations usually have to do with manipulation and fear.

Unfortunately, this is happening a lot in the world. Politicians don’t mean to do this; they’re not bad people. They’re just doing what you’re doing, but they’re externalizing and blaming the externals rather than seeing that it’s a process that is something that they need to deal with and the thousands of people around are the ones who help the politicians to sustain that whole illusion.

This is why this meditation is so important. Imagine if we went up to the politician and said, ‘Look, don’t focus on the chaos, focus on the light inside of you and practice this meditation for five or ten minutes.’ Then the world would really go through a revolution. I’m speaking in a way that you may think is esoteric, but actually it’s very practical.

After living for several years in a Zen Buddhist monastery, Tony Samara ventured to the jungles of South America to the Amazon and to the Andes where he lived and studied among a community of Shamans.  Tony Samara is now visited by people from all parts of the world and from all walks of life, seeking spiritual guidance or simply the experience of being in his presence. He is a spiritual teacher who encourages all to lead their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution of human consciousness.

  2. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for being around someone so amazing like Tony Samara who is showing continuously how to put spirituality into practice in the real sense of the word. His books are definitely amazing and the last two are a compilation of his wonderful work in his Live Satsangs which are broadcast every wednesday at 18.00 Central European Time (Spain, Germany, Austria, France, Slovenia, etc.), 17.00 GMT, 12:00 EST, 15:00 PST on http://www.TonySamara.TV

    The Live Satsangs are an amazing space to get in contact with deep meditation and wisdom, it is a space of listening to the spoken words and going beyond them, listening from a space of non judgement and non duality and simply allowing the words to sink in beyond the understandings and interpretations of the mind.

    Thank you so much Cyndi for allowing this wonderful article to reach even more people and touching the depth of what is possible to touch with a message which is conscious of what is beyond the mundane and societal believes and creeds.

    Love, Wahido
