There are no coincidences in life, only conscious, continuous, cognizable incidents called synchronicities which eternally seek balance & new definition called Dharma & Karma
Since the rule of the universe is its interdependence and a unified beginning and Being since the Big Bang, the macrocosm reflects the micro and vice-versa. The future is for those who recognize this strange behavior as the only possible one that the universe can adopt to maintain its cyclic nature of Big Bang and universal collapse into a black hole: Day & Night of the Brahman… The same karmic principles that apply to the universal creation and dissolution also applies to every particle or energy that the universe consists of. Of Course, it includes us, in fact we are quite up on the ladder since we posses all the needed props like intelligence, emotion, body to affect not just our neighborhood or planet, but the entire universe. Illusions don’t effect reality and reality cant explain the thin line between dreams & illusions—both manifest and pregnant.
Only by Karma alone can karma be beaten. Nullifying illusions using imagination and confronting reality with truth alone are sufficient to overcome the superstitions of the mind and appropriately reduce reality to mind stuff and hence in the domain of the dreams. If, “I have a dream…” echoed an epoch’s reality through Martin Luther King, then, “Dream is not what you see when you sleep But that which doesn’t let you sleep” is a clarion call by Abdul Kalam Azad. To an enlightened ONE—Only Nothing Exists—standing without support like a laughing Buddha mocking himself by poking at his past when he held the world on his shoulders, it all is a joke and “I am the joker in the circus called life”. In Jim Morrison’s words, “like a dog without a bone and actor all alone… Riders on the Storm”. But then, how many of us can truly say like Gautam Buddha or Siddharth with a clear conscience, “I am awake”.
In the usual level of consciousness we are bound to the cosmic positioning, collective mind of the planet and our own relative existential experience through our faith and effort whose balanced cosmic representation is the Sri Yantra. Even if we don’t recognize ourselves as miniature reflections of the universe onto ourselves, the universe of which we are a part can’t forget that. This is due to the fact that a universal balance exists at all times. This balance reflects itself coherently in tandem with ones thoughts to give a correct resolution at any given moment in perceivable sensory form if one is alert and aware by being in the here and now. The mind always, either shows meaningful reflections or answers to thoughts within through the outside reality and this phenomenon is termed as “Synchronicity”.
With respect to the past the future is predestined in the present and is reflected outside. It is like the least path of resistance to nullify the karma and get closer to divinity by absolving the past and ego. This the reason why the past predictions are correctly identified by different methods (astrology, numerology, Nadi, palmistry) but fail to deliver in the future, until and unless you believe in it and work in that direction. But then BELIEF is the greatest tool in action if will is also involved. The will is never partial to the mind or the intellect which is experiential nor to the heart or emotions and feelings which are instinctive, transitory and not always open to logic.
Every thought whether in the form of language or picture carries with it its own progression in the relative time scale, enriching itself from past experiences and buffering against future apprehensions. This is the reason we are trapped in the space-time fabric. Coz we are enslaved to the mind, ever oscillating between past and possible futures.
Meditation is not a time bound, an hour a day process, but an ongoing reality to nullify the conditioning of the mind and hence escape the space-time entrapment. Best way to meditate is to use the senses to meditate with undivided attention in the present situation. The senses constantly takes inputs while the mind oversees the process. This process of keeping the mind at work works better than any other coz it is in the here & now. When meditation is carried as described above, the mind is both at work & it is vacant.
Only in the ‘here & now’ is the mind silent and the consciousness can be seen as one seamless space-time fabric in synchronicity. Everything becomes a purely subjective experience. It is then that the One who experiences or self is realized. Then it becomes clear that all of reality including myself is but of the same material as the one dreams are made up of. It’s then that we come to know the wearer of the uniform – the SELF.
I am bound to the body to experience my unbound self. This means both the outside reflections and inner thoughts are in sync and don’t work within the bounds of conventional time-space fabric, but are instantaneous and hence cant be previewed in isolation without slowing of thoughts. At times the synchronicity happens after sometime and one is relatively ahead of time. Please read – Alice. Since all is One, this means that I am constantly altering events in future by affecting the universal space-time fabric in the present which in turn actually alters the collective future. Usually we lag behind time by always thinking of the future with reference to past. We evaluate the right course of action by relying on our past experience. Those who break free from the past will in effect have no future and proceed to live in the eternal NOW like cosmic children. But then, is this after Buddha’s Nirvana or Death.
In plain English it is the eternal Damascus sword hanging on the one eternal question is death the end or the beginning and is it predetermined. It is neither premeditated nor willed hence it is neither real nor imaginary. It is a mix of both since the universe is one huge hallucination of the benign one, the eternal Purusha or ShivShakti, the all pervading consciousness that has lead to the death of the previous suns and birth of this one.
Consciousness is the mind & not the soul … space-time is much lower than awareness which is sensory and mind which is the product of this awareness through space-time which feeds the consciousness… a soul is like a compressed package of intelligent energy generated through cosmic dwelling which is ruled by entropy and life is a natural outcome of the three primary pursuits of food, cloth, shelter &,company; name, fame, game & dame; power, sex, money & work: riding on instinct, intuition, intelligence & identity like Durga on a Lion or Creative consciousness in Full Awareness.
Just as we are ruled by the astronomical arrangement of heavenly bodies during our entry at birth into this relative existence(where our awareness of being ONE is fragmented), in conscious synchronicity it is possible to influence the stars itself resulting in a harmonious universe with the earth as its center called celestial hemisphere since in an infinite universe every point is the center. Through experiences of synchronicity one starts developing a very different outlook which can be aptly summed as “the universe is a figment of my imagination”. It shows that the reality is a construct of the mind and if synchronicity is consciously practiced with Truth as the only weapon, it definitely does not cause external illusions or internal hallucination since it shows that the the basic reality itself, which includes oneself also, is an illusion. A daily conscience clearing is a must.
Advaita or non-duality means “Aham Brahmasvi” with the following statement as validity:
“I am the atman within the body life immortal, peace for ever”.
Dwaita or duality still means “Aham Brahmasvi” with the following statement as validity:
“I am the universe within the body life immortal, bliss for ever”.
Vedanta is dissolution of the past-present-future or Aura,Dream,Soul with the following:
“I am the brahman as the body life immortal, Sat-Chit-Anand, truth in awareness and joy”.
The first is a voyage of the universe as a soul while the second as a body and the last is a passage in space-time.
But in an altered state of consciousness or ‘Conscious Synchronicity’, the mind slows down, thoughts become rarefied and the individual consciousness expands beyond the space-time fabric, merging with the perceived construct of universal consciousness, thus affecting it. The construct I used is, “I AM Nothing”. Here, I stands for consciousness whereas Nothing is awareness and AM stands for anti-matter : matter(or spirit & matter representing from head to toe as the SELF and the UNIVERSE with the self in it). Just find a perspective and cling to it till its perception fades away and is replaced by a better construct. This is how the universe functions too.
My mind is to provoke a new tangential thought concurrent with the prevalent yet deviant in its motive by seeking to destroy all the past constructs for a better framework which is both encompassing all that is past at the same time keeps the moment exciting and future astonishingly unpredictable with awe & wonder. But, First Things First. One needs to drop the pretence of being able to control ones life and stop trying to manage it – in other words refrain from using our self will and limited intelligence and wisdom to produce an even more limited life, seemingly well defined but utterly constricted life, devoid of the principle of uncertainty which is the vital ingredient for a child like wonder and for creation itself. Coz wonder is the very wool dreams are made of, the very fabric that allows the universal consciousness to permeate into the individual self, flowering the imaginations of the mind to dream a better reality and the actions that follow the thought to realize it.
But as we grow, spend time, we get caught up in the whorl of our collective past experiences which form the boundary of our intellectual or thought domain. It is with this limited perception of reality that any uncertainty breeds in us either hope or mostly despair. Despair leads us to seek a release using our limited intelligence which makes us grope for methods and means while all the while harboring doubts of the outcome which in itself is self defeating. Hope on the other hand is blind to all the limitations; all it nurtures is a secret desire for the objective coupled by a belief, which positively affects the outcome. And it is always the strength of the desire that affects the means and its effectiveness and when coupled with a sense of justification (dharma) with reliance on a higher power, it paves a road where there was none, creates opportunities magically and opens portals of strength and resources within us that we ourselves never knew existed; astounding us with what we ourselves are capable of accomplishing.
Not everyone can contemplate the above to proceed and reach this state in a manner such that it spiritually transforms the very physical and hence the perceived mental projection of it. Moreover, a great degree of Faith is needed. Faith is belief of something that cannot be proved. Faith is not JUST belief without proof but also trust without reservation. Have no doubts, just BELIEVE and thy will is done. Fears, which are but the collective anxieties of all our Past mental makeup (yeah, even while being in our mother’s womb too.), lead to doubts which kills the Belief. Here, my guiding slogan has been, “Your trust is your faith & I believe in you”.
It requires the core spiritual value of being truthful and surrendering to a Higher self. Not perceive oneself as apart from lesser mortals but a part of this living planet and seeing the self mirrored in it. In other words, total acceptance of the universe and oneself. No past no future thus no regret, remorse, guilt or fear and anxiety. This kind of acceptance is not as easy it sounds.
Personally for me it has been a long journey of 40 years on this planet before it sank in with no ripples of karma left, since every thought is accounted for and returned duly. I know I am ready for the next leap since I am in instant karma and synchronicity. In yester years, I used to be in a euphoric state seeing the reality dance with myself. But lately I have progressed to a state of observer and and understood that what i held in awe -synchronicity- is the only way this universe exists. In other words to quote Einstein, I live the state of “spooky behavior of particles at distance.” where one is all and all is one.
