The holiday of Easter celebrates transcendence, and transcendence is true independence, and freedom. Happy Independence Day! 🙂
Blessedly for the past fifty years, the knowledge and experience of reliable transcendence has again become available on a daily basis vs. only at physical death, per the Easter story.
Once we begin the TM and TM-Siddhis programs, we are immediately shifted from a life in Perishable Brahman, full relative life, onto Imperishable Brahman, and the beginning realization of our eternal, imperishable nature. With practice, purification, time and activity, we increasingly accept our eternal nature as key to our identity.
Although this process of deeper and clearer transcendence is a huge leap in awareness from pure relative life, it is not yet complete. Maharishi at one time spoke of the relative speeds of spiritual evolution, per method, comparing Yogananda’s sadhana to a propeller plane, TM to a jet aircraft, and the siddhis to a rocket ship.
So far, so good. As indicated on my map of human consciousness, these practices move us about 70% of the way up the game board. All the way to what Maharishi described as Unity Consciousness, or UC – the perception that all relative phenomenon is more like us than unlike us, and that a common source exists within each of us. Seventy percent. A grade of ‘C’ for competent? Clearly a ways to go – how do we close the gap?
Keep going! Beyond Unity Consciousness 🙂
Fortunately, just as we have the jet and rocket (TM and TM-Siddhis) to quickly get us this far, we can now use the analogy of the starship, moving to the galaxies in the blink of an eye, much faster than cinematic hyperspace – ha ha. This approaches true independence, as we move into cosmic life.
Just as we have had techniques to bring us along to UC, and continue them, the key to completing the journey to Supreme Brahman, the 8th state of consciousness, is a seamless relationship with Divinity. It begins quietly and gradually, in rhythm with the purification of our heart. An innocent friendship and devotion.
We may experience this as Grace at first, Grace being the extraordinary steps Divinity takes to reach us, before we even have a clue. 🙂 Raising us spiritually like children. Our cosmic education continues as we begin to discern the six Divine gunas, bringing us to practical completion.
Each phase of Brahman is its own world, and Supreme Brahman is a world of full support of Nature. 100 percent, Totality. A+.
We then live a life of independence and freedom, no longer tethered to any earthly karmas, except by duty and grace, able to move into and within cosmic consideration, each step further into the stars, ever guided by Divinity. 🙂 Feel free to join the party!
