The Divine is Playing In and Through us


pexels-photo-369433.jpegIn the last week I’ve been trying to show you how the Divine has blissfully entered a play with itself.  It is playing with itself, contracting its consciousness through what is called Maya and the Divine is playing in an ignorant version of itself.  So who is playing?  The Divine is playing in and through us, not that we are playing in our ignorance.  It is the Divine that is playing in and through us and it’s blissfully playing .  So underneath this consciousness that we’re experiencing as Self is a blissful part of being, Consciousness, that is in play.

But you’re not going to realize that in your ordinary consciousness.  We don’t even think we are divine in our ordinary consciousness but we are divine.  It is the Divine that is becoming human.  It is the Divine that is human but yet we think we are not divine.

And I tried to show you that this is an energetic play.  It is a play based on subtle energies.  And that Consciousness has been veiled in steps such that we have a mental part of us in the contraction; and then our Consciousness has been veiled at different levels to give us a relationship with the elements of Nature and a play of the senses.  So the mind, which is the manas part of the mind, it is in play with the senses.  But of course the ego that is there in mental operation – the ego only appears in mental operation and it only appears in the contraction.  If the consciousness is expanded infinitely, the ego loses its separation.

So the magic of the Maya is that we feel lost even though there is infinite consciousness in our being.  so if we are able to understand this play, the understanding can help us to work through this play.  There is no perishing in this play because the Divine is playing with its immortal Self.  How can it perish?  Perishing is only in the mind.  It’s not in the Reality.   Sri Vasudeva Day 22 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www. blue-star.org

Contemplate the Temporary Nature of Life


pexels-photo-95684.jpegThings disappear around you: people, the body, pets, plants, go back to nature.  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 is it that we do not contemplate the temporary nature of life around us? It is so changing, it is so unpredictable. That is the Maya;  we are held in this false reality. We are so gripped by it that we do not even think.

When things around you don’t working out, or when you feel that you are not happy even though you get all the things that you want, do you see the false nature? That which you thought would make you happy doesn’t anymore. The achievement that you thought would fulfill you, didn’t.  It is innate to our being to search for that which is real. That is why we say we are on an evolutionary journey; waking up is our destiny.

I am inviting you to observe the dream-like nature of life, its transitory nature, and let your desire be strong to wake up to that which you really are; your reality. Hold that desire strongly that you may wake up to that which is real, and let that beautiful prayer from the Upanishad resonate within your being.

Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya; Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya; Mrtyor Maa Amrtam Gamaya; Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.” Lead me from the illusion of the unreal to the real, may the veiling power be removed so the Light may be revealed, lead me from the idea that I die to the consciousness of my immortality.
