Are we Sleeping in the Consciousness?


maha_vishnu-620x350

The wise say that this experience of waking life is just a longer dream, which means we are actually sleeping in the consciousness, because we know that dreams happen when we are sleeping. Is it true that we are held in an illusion, and what we are experiencing as reality isn’t so? That there is a greater reality than what we are experiencing? Is there?

Every day, you watch how that which you hold as a reality is ever changing. Things disappear around you: people whom you know, their body goes back to nature; pets that you have, they go back to nature; plants that you have, they go back to nature. You are seeing a constant change and flux in the space, and that which you hold close and dear today is going to leave you someday. What do you call a changing experience, if not dream-like? So why do we give so much attention to what is changing around us, as the reality? Why do we hold on to it so much, only to realize that it goes away, just like the dream? Which one of you is going to stay in that constancy of the physical?                          Sri Vasudeva

Meditation for Inner Freedom

Begin to quiet the mind, so that we can observe our Self as being different to the body. Let us move away body-conscious thoughts, observing the body, but not identifying with it as our reality.

There is chakra awareness within you along the spine; there is prāṇa awareness with the breath, and; there is awareness of attention and intention. In the subtle world, your intention can create your reality, your perception. Your mind can create your reality. Begin to observe that space.

Stay with the moving breath. Open the belly and the chest to breathe, and breathe more completely, with attention along the spine. From the base of the spine, perineum area, take your attention along the spine as you breathe right to the back of the neck in the medulla area. And as you go to the medulla area, focus on the third eye. You are coming into subtle body awareness when you do that.

Protect the mind from being caught up in thoughts, beliefs, ideas, expectations, and impatience. Stay completely alert. Do not fall into sleep when you come in this space and try to retire the mind. You can do that by focusing on the third eye.

Whichever area along the spine feels burdened or challenged, take your attention there, still holding that mental power of the third eye. Focus on whichever chakra feels unbalanced.

The goal is not to be caught in the subtle dreams of the mind, nor to fall into the deep sleep, but to try to be fully aware.  This is how you learn to master the subtle world. It needs Rudra ( third eye) power to manage it; Guru power. Kuṇḍalinī brings it to us.
