Chanting 13


Constantly calling out Your Names has been for many, the

beginning of surrendering all we think, feel, will, say and do to

You. Gradually, we sober lower consciousness to union with You.

 
At this point we know The Supreme, Pure Consciousness as the

Self of all animate and inanimate beings, all sentient beings,

throughout the Cosmic Manifestation. 

This is spiritual revolution, a one hundred and eighty degree

change, and an evolution of consciousness. We change the way we

see the self, then we naturally change the way we see everything

else.

We see the self looking out as eternal, designation less, spirit. So

we see the "Other" looking out as eternal spirit, free from all

designations.
 Association brings assimilation for the purification and raising of

our consciousness. We are now on the spiritual platform. The

consciousness continues to expand because we are purifying the

Pineal Gland by always associating with You who are the Eternal,

Infinite, Beloved.

We can come to the spiritual platform by simply changing the way

we see the self, and calling out Your Names. To the degree we see

the self as spirit looking out through the body as the witness,

awareness, consciousness, we are living on the spiritual platform.

We begin to sober-up, to reawaken, by coming to the spiritual

platform and chanting Your Holy Names. Gradually we began

seeing the soul as the Immovable Self, You. This is the Supreme,

Eternal, Motionless Spirit/Soul, the Ultimate Ground of Being of

all beings.
We are living as the soul with a body not a body with a soul. The

body, mind, intelligence, and ego have their temporary illusory

existence within You, the Supreme Soul, the Super Self, Pure

Consciousness. When we change the way we look at the self, we

change the way we look at the world. When we change the way we

look at the world, the world we look at changes.

Gradually the Self is seen as Eternal Spirit, Consciousness, or

Awareness, pervading and transcending all material forms, names

and attributes. At the highest stage, there is nothing to be seen, the

Self, smallest of the smallest and biggest of the biggest, is

pervading and transcending everything.
Chanting the Holy Names and meditating on the Silence are some

of our ancient spiritual practices. They purify the consciousness,

remove the clouds of ignorance between the lower self and the

Higher Self, and facilitate the reunion of the lower

consciousness/self with the Highest Awareness/Self. Thus, at all

levels of consciousness we sober up to our Most Awake State of

Being. We are Eternally One.

You are our Highest, the Most Present Consciousness. To the

degree we are resurrected to our original consciousness our 

equanimity is revived, we are able to remain the same in the face

of loss or gain, pleasure or pain, and other repulsions, attractions

and attachments of the dual worlds of illusory energy.


We purify our lower consciousness of the materialistic disease and

are better qualified to follow You, the Most Holy Spirit. Gradually

we are released from Maya, Your inferior, external, illusory

energy. This all happens to the degree we remember You in all we

do.
 We enhance our capacity to always think of You by chanting Your

Holy Names and meditating on the Silence. This leads to

concentrating on You, which leads to meditating on You as

Supreme Awareness.

 
You are the Immeasurable Consciousness that is within and

beyond all. Some of our spiritual practice consist of calling out

Your Name and offering to You everything. 

Persistence in this Sadhana give us glimpses of Your awesome

magnificence and makes us ever stronger in our patience and

determination to realize You constantly, here, now, in this moment.
The major psychological impairment at the root of our spiritual

pathology is the belief that the self is a material, mental,

intellectual, or ego entity. This spiritual disease dissipates, and

healing begins as Lower Consciousness sobers to the fact that the

self is Eternal Spirit, Soul, or Pure Energy.
This Eternal, Pure Energy, or Awareness, this Field of Infinite

consciousness which pervades and transcends all consciousness,

Stillness, and all states of Being, is the Supreme Awareness.

Chanting the Holy Names is great help in the restoration of all

levels of our consciousness to this most sublime and ecstatic field

of  Eternal, Pure Awareness.

 
 We repeat Your Holy Names, the key to a life of ever increasing

knowledge and bliss, to help us remember You. This purifies our

consciousness and we thus transcend the ego and it negative

qualities and behaviors finding, i.e. false prestige, fear, malice,

annoyance and fault finding.
We are increasingly realizing the infinite, omnipresent Silence as a

result of chanting Your Holy Names, offering You everything, and

meditating on silence as the Self, leaving aside everything else. In

this way we no longer remain ignorant, thinking the body is

moving the soul, or that the body is the self.

We see that it is You that  are the Power, the source of everything: 

body, mind, intellect, ego, and illusion. You are the Source of the

energy which flows through the Pineal Gland. We generally call

this Eternal Energy the soul. You, the Source, we call the Eternal,

Super Soul or Supreme Awareness of all.
