CONSCIOUSNESS, where are you?
I am not a writer or a blogger. To be honest, I am not a very good social platform person either (whatever that is). I joined this platform a few months back to read about spirituality and my most loving Guruji’s (Om Swami) posts. The whole new world has opened up for me (like a Jasmine on a magic carpet) I started reading my beloved Sri Davi’s Ji posts. Now I am blessed with her unconditional love and profound wisdom of guidance. What more one could pray for? Also, reading so many wonderful posts by so many loving souls. Thank you every one for your wisdom and love.
I surrendered my existence at Guruji’s (Om Swami) lotus feet in November 2021 and my Ego, I (ness) at Sri Hari’s feet in April 2022. (Now you know, I am such a newbie in this world) Both these incidences are truly magical for me, one day I will tell you in detail. For now, I can confirm that there is no such thing as “Coincidence”. Shattering every atom of your existence of ego and I-ness if you truly surrender (loads of crying helps too 😊) with your purest heart to almighty Divine Ma, she comes running to you and gives you the biggest hug in the world and her unconditional love.
Keep on prying, keep on calling her. She is listening, it is just a matter of time.
For now, I am just trying to understand and absorb the journey of this body, and consciousness, and maybe possible one day will realize the truth. I can’t wait to meet my consciousness which dominates this body. It sounds funny when I type because this body lives in my consciousness. Then who is looking for whom?
But you may ask if I am not this body, I am not my mind, I am not my thoughts…. Then… then.. who am I?
मनोबुद्ध्यहङ्कार चित्तानि नाहं
न च श्रोत्रजिह्वे न च घ्राणनेत्रे ।
न च व्योम भूमिर्न तेजो न वायुः
चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥१॥
That I am! I am that! The strong, always so pure, blissful Consciousness (चिदानन्दरूपः). Just a tiny realization is needed.
Imagine (or remember, if you can) when a similar realization occurs to us at the stage of our life when we're toddlers or smaller, about our body, family, our home, and all the surroundings. It was almost an “aha moment” for us but everything was always existing before that and continued existing after that as well. Or to make it simpler, the math problem that we stared at it for hours and hours, tried solving, reading (and at some point, prayed to the divine to help us out, lol), suddenly we found the answer and we felt so joyous. But the fun part is we need to understand that the answer was always there, we just had no realization before and now we do!
So, let's work on our “Aha Moment”. Let’s merge with our gorgeous चिदानन्दरूपः (Consciousness). Can you imagine how awesome it is going to be?
Loads of love to all here and beyond!
