Brahman lives and manifests completion. Simply by Being, and moving Being through space-time, through cosmic life. The spiritual evolution is complete, incorporating all spiritual tasks and goals, all refinement.
The light established within radiates into all corners and vistas of our consciousness, first inside ourselves, every avenue of thought and action, every karma brought to completion. The senses refine and show us both divinity and hell; a suffusion of light and wisdom, and its absence. After some time in this state of both established Being and finest perception, we begin to sense the world as ourselves, an intimacy eliminating much judgment and fear.
Our consciousness emanating into the world now resembles a sphere, with our core of Being radiating awareness from its center, capturing all impressions in the context of its warm cosmic embrace – “The world is as you are”.
Unity consciousness. All relationships become known in terms of ourselves, and our knowledge of the world grows more unbounded. Waking, dreaming, sleeping, Being within, Being established in activity, finest perception of Reality, and then Unity; all of the seven states of consciousness have been achieved.
Unity lives by virtue of our core identity of Being. But what is this core? It is a fluid concentration of cosmic impulses by which we carry out our ongoing merge with Mother Divine. We love it so much and find it so useful to our cosmic purpose that we use this essence distilled over innumerable lifetimes as our identity, the core of our Unity. However, just as we transcend all prior states of consciousness in order to live Unity, so is Unity transcended in order to live the Totality of Brahman.
It is key to realize that all of the tools and responsibilities gained through Unity are retained. The only thing that changes living Brahman is our identity, and our subsequent assumption of Totality. Totality, completion, cosmic living, all remove the constraints of Unity, that we must perceive everything in terms of our subject-object relationship, even if it is so intimate as to be perceived as one. A singularity still remains in Unity that almost goes away completely in Brahman.
We move beyond this ownership of Being, this identity of Being, moving to reside on the event horizon of Totality. Totality is ever expanding – a never-ending expansion, and we along with it. At the same time, there is a re-forming, a comprehension, an integration and completion of Totality at each moment. Call it the cosmic pulse of Mother Divine’s consciousness.
First to emerge from Her essence are the gods and goddesses, each with huge responsibilities in various domains of human life and development, and as such very long lifespans, way beyond a detailed comprehension of the intricacy and sheer enormity of their knowledge and actions.
These fundamental Beings then manifest this infinite creation and we participate within, evolving our consciousness into a dynamic totality, tethered in ever-expanding completions, and sustained there by the source of the source, Mother Divine. This is living Brahman, the completion of spiritual growth, and the endless dawn of Totality. 🙂
