Cosmic life, living Brahman, has two components; full Cosmic perception and ability, and full earthly life and ability. The two are inseparable, and when living Brahman, both are lived to completion.
Unlike times past, when spiritual knowledge was the exclusive province of the monks and recluses, hidden to maintain its purity, nowadays spiritual knowledge is available everywhere, and Totality can be a tangible Reality, even while living an active and worldly life.
As householders, spiritual practices are here to enhance our daily lives, leading to better health, closer relationships, and enough wealth. As we progress spiritually, waking up to our universal and immortal nature, we see correlates in our earthly life. Our lives tangibly improve, not by us feigning an indifference, but by conventional measures.
For example, physical and mental health are optimized. This means basically no issues, we understand our bodies for what they are, and have the knowledge to constantly nourish and even heal them. Physical deterioration is minimized, and mental acuity is maximized. Emotions are fully available, and balanced.
With such a capable foundation established, we can now interact reliably, successfully, and compassionately with all those in our lives, past, present and future. Living Brahman this means the full integration of all Cosmic energy, the three worlds.
Although this sounds like a big deal, it isn’t. Once we have full perception living Brahman, how long does it take for our hearts to swell as big as life itself and give unending thanks to Mother Divine, or our teacher, or anyone else we love dearly? A few seconds. Who needs to know? No one except the object of our gratitude. What are called the spiritual elements of life can be profound and catalytic, yet so well integrated that they are nearly invisible to anyone else, nor do they take much time.
The point being that even the most stirring examples of Totality can be lived within any normal life. If they don’t blend in, how can they serve daily life? If spiritual living remains somehow isolated from daily life, it simply makes life less effective, less efficient, less successful. A lot of pie in the sky.
This becomes obvious once we interact with the world, all the people, all the doing, and all the results. This is when we learn how integrated we are.
We have no option living Brahman. All of life is lived to completion. All desires are lived to completion. Cosmic completion. This means all relationships are harmonious, and enough wealth is always available. Our relationship with ourselves is already healthy and established in success. This carries over to our partners, our families, our friends, our wider social circles, and on.
No matter what the challenge is, it is met with success, because living Totality, any knowledge at any time is always available. We then are able to make correct choices to resolve any ignorance or tension within our relationships. We always walk our talk. All problems are dealt with seamlessly and Cosmically, leaving no wake.
So the symptom of Brahman, full enlightenment, Totality, is success in every action, every relationship, every domain, and every challenge. This lets us know that we are living Totality, or not – no ambiguity. Unlike the temporary states of consciousness lived prior to Brahman, there is no excuse for a lack of completion when living Brahman. It is an impossibility.
If every action does not lead to success, it is not living Brahman. Just as the Moon appears absent, then as a sliver, and eventually full, all while remaining the fullness of itself, Totality has no partial states, as illustrated by our personal lives.
Brahman unlike any other prior states, always walks the talk – no exceptions or confusion. It is earthly life made completely successful, ever informed by Cosmic life, mentally, physically, environmentally, and globally. 🙂
