Brahman and the Elimination of Shadows

Sunrise and clouds in Paradise

By the time Brahman is lived, the identity is no longer able to form attachments to anything but truth and Reality. Nothing else is capable of existing in the environment of Brahman. There are a few reasons for this:

The physiology is purified to a high degree, in terms of strength, flexibility, and refinement. The mind is clear, uncluttered, and fearless. Finally, the seamless relationship with Divinity is established.

Just as Being is established prior to Brahman, so is Divinity established as the foundation of Brahman. This element is the one that most distinguishes the experience of Brahman. Although this exists as a reality, there is a bit more to the establishment of such a relationship than is obvious.

Not only must we open our hearts to whatever higher power we can reach, also, once such a relationship becomes active, we purge our minds and hearts of doubt in order to become a vessel capable of maintaining Totality. This is not done overnight. 🙂

So many times such Divine revelation is portrayed in an unrealistic manner, as if we are flooded with this and that, and changed instantly. Pure Hollywood. Please excuse me, but does an apple tree grow fruit from a seed in a single day? I rest my case. 🙂 Although we will certainly have huge experiences of God to wake us up, jolt us from our everyday reality, the payoff is in the ripening of human life, living Totality. (What is the use of settling for less?)

The growing relationship with the Divine occurs in human time, with gradual results. With such a source of perfection and compassion available within us, and externally in the form of Divine Beings, it presents an ideal space for deep reflection and even conversation with ourselves about all our troubles and dreams, and perhaps pain we acknowledge of ourselves and others; the shadows that lie embedded like secrets within ourselves. Nothing can withstand the pure light of Being, the onslaught of the angels.

As the experience of the Self grows, it gains the opportunity to find its fulfillment in Divinity, surrender, and Brahman. As I have said too many times, the payoff is always worth the relinquishing of those obstacles that stand in the way of our spiritual destiny, Totality.

This is a choice available to us at any time. The choice is between the attachment to ignorance that beckons each of us, or the absence of such attachments in order to live true freedom. Not a conditional freedom based on anything, but true freedom; the ability to live unbounded awareness, the seamless relationship with Divinity, the ownership of all time and space, and the compassionate command of the Heavenly Host.

This path to Brahman has always been available, but never so widely. The marriage of Brahman and communications technology, first used by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to further the popularity of Transcendental Meditation, brings the promise of Brahman, Totality, to householders globally. This spread of Brahman is appropriate for these fast moving times, to elevate the Self to Divinity, and bring Heaven on Earth.

it shows up in the pictures...I am a US citizen (born in California), though spent my childhood through high school living primarily in SE Asia, giving me a deep view of both East and West. I began TM at 21 and the TM-Sidhis at 26. I was visited by Guru Dev at 39. The rest is history. :-)
