Brahman is all about action. Action in liberation, innocence, and freedom.
Just as doctors must go through a rigorous internship, on-site, with little sleep, working on the front lines of peoples’ lives, so do those who live Brahman also go through an internship. A doctor does this to ingrain their medical skills and knowledge, so that they act and react automatically to whatever they are presented with. This ensures that they become masters of physical life.
So must those who seek their complete liberation living Brahman, living Cosmic Life, go through such a series of life-lessons towards mastery. Becoming aware of Totality, the three worlds [Heaven, Earth, and Hell], and taking responsibility, taking action, growing from earth life to Cosmic Life.
This is not the sometimes heedless or short-sighted action found on earth. This is not even the action needed for mastery of material life. Cosmic life runs on a much larger clock. Even the measurements of science, bringing human life to earth millions of years ago, are inadequate for the measure of cosmic life. Cosmic life is deathless, guided by the same perfection that endlessly moves the galaxies through the firmament. And beyond that, to the very words issuing from the lips of Mother Divine. This is Cosmic Life, this is living Brahman.
On our way we must undergo this rigor, in order to reorient the very core of our Being, from earth life, to Cosmic Life, Divine perfection, dynamic and creative completion. Our goal is similar to that of the doctor’s, with different objectives – To live Cosmic Life without thinking about it, having all abilities always available, ever tuned to the time of the galaxies and even further.
Similar to the guidance used to gain our initial awakening to our universality, our Being, the light within, we now take responsibility as if our immortality depends on it, because it does.
Being a long-term student of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and His boss, Guru Dev (Sri Brahmananda Saraswati), I found a list on-line that Maharishi had enunciated at some point, with very practical advice for those seeking initial awakening, and further states of higher consciousness, even leading to Brahman. Mostly it comes down to taking action until the task is done, without taking issue.
3-Don’t compare yourself to others.
4-Don’t expect things to be done for you.
5-Don’t expect perfection in the relative.
6-Look to the knowledge aspect daily.
8-Problems are all in your head.
9-Hold yourself together.

One of the gifts of life we are given is the innocence with which life unfolds, always revealing its mysteries as a combination of known and new. In order to take best advantage of such small and large revelations, we must have lived, resolved, and transcended so much of life. Earth is here for just such a purpose. Living endless expansion, endless evolution, revolution, and love. Here for us to embrace it fully, and to transcend in our embrace, to Cosmic Life, Totality, Brahman. Such is the birthright of all of us, available at any time we desire it enough.
When we are earnest about our quest for Totality, to climb the highest tree in the forest, to dive into the deepest depths of the ocean, to live bright golden bliss, and deep, wounding pain, to simply open ourselves to all we are and all that there is, was, and will ever be, without much rest, and no compromise, this is the path to living Brahman. Totality means everything.
However there is no need to seek out extreme experiences. It is ourselves that need the most work anyway, so as long as we are steadfast with working out past karma, opening ourselves to ourselves, the path remains clear. 🙂
