Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayatri.
Hari Aum Tat Sat. Aum Bha. Namo Namaha.
In our original state of Pure Consciousness, we are naturally
a well wisher and a blessing to all. It is not necessary for us
to be bitter. In fact bitterness is poison to the one who
harbors it. Goodness and mercy are the natural condition of
our original, imperturbable, consciousness.
Nor need we attempt to change the unchangeable nature of
Maya, the material world. However, we must change
ourselves. We do this by always thinking of You. By this
concentration, our goodness and mercy are always
increasing and we are always more spiritually, intellectually,
mentally, and physically cleaner and healthier than we were
Always thinking of You, who are within and beyond nomena
and phenomena, improves the quality of our spiritual life.
It decalcifies the Pineal gland. This causes the purification
and expansion of our consciousness.
As the consciousness is cleansed, purified, and expanded, we
make positive or good Karma. Gradually, we transcend
Karma because with purified consciousness we have enough
intelligence to offer everything to You, who are outside of the
influence of Karma. This way, we are purified of the
problem of self misidentification.
Our ignorance of You, Eternal, Divine Omnipresence, is the
root and ground of our suffering. We are already here, in the
Now. However, in the illusion of Maya, we think we have to
go somewhere to find You and our Self.
Our problems are rooted in our identifying the non-self as the
Self. Ignorant and unconscious of the bliss of self in union
with Your Omnipresence, we suffer endlessly like a person
dying of thirst chasing illusory Oasis mirages in the desert.
We always think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate
on You, we associate with You as within and beyond dual and nondual. This is how
we cleanse our consciousness of lust, anger, greed, develop our dormant love for You and
each other. Gradually we reawaken to You, the undifferentiated, Supreme Absolute.
Illusion, madness, and envy, the negative qualities that rise
out of lust, anger, and greed are the result of our ignorance of
Self. This basic ignorance of Self is the source of our
sufferings in the worlds of birth, death, and rebirth, Maya.
Illumination, Enlightenment, Consciousness of You, is the
Source of our liberation from Your illusory energy, Maya, the
Chastiser. Always thinking of You is the sword of
detachment that we use to cut through the roots of the
Banyan tree of Maya.
Emancipation from Maya and consciousness union with
You again, is real liberation. It is eternal, full of unlimited
bliss, infinite knowledge, and total comprehension. This was
our position before the doubt and fall into Maya.
