What is it like to live Brahman, Totality? What comes first and foremost is the purification of the vessel, ourselves. This is accomplished through the dynamic and transcendent values of the four elements: Through earth to purify desire, air to resolve all karma, fire to burn the awareness clean, and water to flow with acceptance. These purifications, from earthly life to Cosmic Life, Brahman, are absolute. There is no place for preference or bargaining or anger or self-pity or sorrow. It is what it is. We have asked diligently for this Reality and it is offered, though we must earn the right to it, to Cosmic life.
Desire means all desire to become wholeness – for example if a partner is needed in Unity, it will be the same in Brahman, or if a desire for wealth is unfulfilled, it remains too. Similarly any health issues, mental, emotional, and physical, will present themselves for healing.
Cosmic Life fills in all of these wholenesses so life can be lived completely. Though we must also act and surrender in accordance to such desires, to their conclusion, that we may then progress with the dignity, invincibility, and strength of Cosmic Will, “Thy Will Be Done”, easily and without thinking twice about it.
Karma means all karma, every past action that has come forward into the Totality of time, space and experience is resolved to our present existence. The perspective remains our own, though no element of the Cosmos remains unreachable, unknowable, or unlivable. This is true, though perhaps not all of it in the next five minutes. 🙂
However, Cosmic life is also one of Immortality, never ending life. There is enough time to accomplish everything – Heaven awaits. The surface of our vessel wears out eventually on this earth, though the recognizable essence of ourselves, even our personality, continues living Cosmic life. It must. It is the greatest joy of Mother Divine to shine Her radiance through our eyes, felt through our senses, and lived as our life. All abilities and full surrender, both, the abiding paradox of Brahman.
Awareness sees everything, certainly of ourselves, and any other object of attention in its fullness, its transcendence, its Infinite and Immortal nature. We remain awake always. We remain responsible for all that there will be and all that there has ever been, responsible to accept this within ourselves, beyond any state of consciousness; waking, dreaming, sleeping, self, Self, other, Unity. No artificial partitions or boundaries exist, either imposed from outside or within, all delusions drop away, and we are always left by ourselves, fully and infinitely present, engaged, and focused.
Established unshakably in Cosmic life, we totally and completely accept all that comes our way. Having gone through the absolute purification of the four elements, earth, air, fire, and water, we now simply accept what comes next, offering the rain into vast rivers from the sky, flowing into the limitless ocean, and bathed by eternal sunlight.
These are the first steps to living Brahman, developing the personality of Brahman; purifying the vessel so that it may contain and enjoy Totality, Cosmic life.
