Once Brahman is lived, once Totality is lived, competition, courage, and completion are the three chief elements needed to manifest cosmic life, to move the immensity of space-time in a desired direction.
The aspect of competition seems like an odd choice for such a spiritual task, born of total surrender. Yet there is always the persistence of what has come before, when foundational change is considered, so our competence for success, catalyzed from experience and confidence, is critical. Bringing to bear strength, stamina, clarity and persistence. Doing our best, for as long as it takes.
Courage, the ability to overcome any unforeseen obstacles inside and out, to accomplish one’s unwavering objective, is also necessary. We must continue until we are done, the paradox of surrender while living Totality. No giving up.
Then, completion, the dharmic result of clear and pure intention, is of course the only acceptable end result, made evident through concrete establishment and evidence of cosmic law.
These elements are consistent, no matter what it is we take on, guiding our thoughts and actions throughout the Totality of Brahman. When something big like a fire or a national election comes up, we take it on, and when something local like home care and nourishment comes up, that is also included with equal consideration.
For much of the spiritual journey, there has been an uneasy relationship with the ego, our sense of self, or Self, our identity and sense of ownership. It changes according to our growing perceptions, until it appears absent, subsumed to Oneness in our supremely Self-centered state of Unity.
Then we transcend, and rise to Brahman, Totality. In that divine paradox, we are both in total and abject surrender to Mother Divine’s Heavenly Host, and like those innumerable Beings, the architects and supporters of Her consciousness, we find our place, our context in such a Totality, anchored here on earth, and go about our business, according to our preferences and personality, just like anyone else.
We never lose our humanity. In fact, we live it to its fullness, taking on challenges we never thought possible. Through the pervasive electronic technologies we are immersed in, along with a comprehensive spiritual regeneration, alignment and perception of the collective consciousness is now possible in a practical way, no matter its boundaries (local, regional, national, continental, global, and cosmic) .
Tendencies can be sensed and synchronized, all by a profound knowledge of the laws evident and governing any phenomenon. It sounds impossible, yet it is the same technology found within our bodies, simply exported to the outside – for example, first the pathways of the human nervous system are mirrored in computer networks, then suffused with cosmic intelligence.
Everything begins to turn around and come about quickly; equality, compassion, ease, and peace, even in the midst of Totality, pulsing with cosmic energy, and cosmic efficiency. The cosmos as immeasurable, as incomprehensible, as dynamic as it is, is always consistent.
In 2001 the Genesis spacecraft was launched into the Lagrange point (equal gravitational pull) between the earth and the sun, to collect solar wind particles. Long story, short, the composition of the contemporary samples of solar wind matched collections from the moon, about 100 million years old. Cosmic consistency.
Along with the families of the divine supporting us, any task is shouldered. There is no arrogance or comparison in this, for we are naturally humbled by the infinities, the abilities of the least of life, the many peaceful particles assembling and disassembling creation at any moment, guided by the watchful, compassionate, and persistent gaze of Mother Divine.
So we seek and find the quietest, most intimate and subtle domains of life, of love, safety, and peace, and protect and nourish them, just as we then take on larger and larger venues, with the critical cooperation and infinite assistance of all who sustain and guide us, globally and cosmically.
Living Brahman with every breath and pause of breath, manifests cosmic life, manifests Totality.
