If you’ve ever been driven crazy by the sheer multitude of diverging opinions and revelations concerning God – and who hasn’t? – then you will find the following a welcome relief. Beyond the appearance of illusory multiplicities, the tedium of dueling doctrines is perfectly understandable.
I have long felt that the One, IS-ness would not have created this exciting journey and return Home if Remembering who we are, was going to be a repetitious bore! Meaning I firmly believe that each of us must find our own delightful path. When we begin to live spontaneously in every moment, the God-within us, the ATMA-SELF, will lovingly reveal IT-self to us in a manner wonderfully unique to the waveform of our Soul.
In the Uddhava Gita, Krishna tells us –
‘In any one part, the other parts are present.’
In a hologram, the entire hologram is contained within every part – and so it is with the ONE, IS-ness. Viewed from the SELF, the Universe is just ONE big pulsating vibrating golden ocean of potent possibility. It’s the GUNAS and their five senses that create distinctions and the illusory appearance of multiplicity.
Each and every belief, doctrine, dogma, and understanding of the ONE is the expression of the temporal identity-self that experienced it. It is a portion of the Totality. In our search for the return Home throughout time, we human beings have reflected the One, our Source through the filtered lens of our own hearts and mind. These conflicting and clashing flavors of faith have emerged naturally over time within historical and cultural contexts.
The sooner we realize this and cease foolishly hating and persecuting others for their differences, the sooner third dimensional planet Earth will be able to take its place with the rest of the universe!
Every truth is truth — and as such a joy to the Creator.

The Uddhava Gita, The Final Teaching of Krishna
Translated by Swami Ambikananda Saraswati; 2002, Ulysses Press
Heavens and hells are nothing more than temporal ILLUSIONS in the astral planes, created by the mind of man throughout the Four Cycles of Time. Just as the worlds (LOKAS) of the gods (DEVAS) and extra-terrestrials are locked in their own durations of time, and have a Beginning and an End, these heaven and hell holographic matrices are temporal and not eternal.
The wise must understand that the rewards of heaven
…are as transient as pleasures on earth.
The Uddhava Gita, Dialogue 14.18
The gods, or cosmic deities, also belong to the phenomenal world… the attainment of oneness with them… cannot destroy the miseries of SAMSARA [the illusory holographic matrix].
… the aspirant, seeking liberation from phenomenal suffering, should realize the Supreme Brahman [IS-ness] as his own self and the self of all beings.
The Upanishads Vol. 3, AITAREYA UPANISHAD, Chapter II
An intriguing prayer from the genius Indian composer Sufi AR Rahman:
“O God, if I worship Thee for fear of hell, then burn me in hell.
And if I worship Thee in hope of paradise, exclude me from paradise.
But if I worship Thee for Thy own sake, grudge me not Thy everlasting Beauty.”
The prayer reflects the Razors Edge quality of the individual seeker who prays for the single-minded focus back into the God-within, that piece of IS-ness that you are, your own Soul – the ATMA, your Divine SELF.
The most important task you now face is to form a solid-gold relationship with your own Soul, the God-within you, a relationship you can count on to carry you through whatever may come.
Establishing this relationship with the God-within you is far more important than any comprehension of the endless schemes & conspiracies of the Darkside, which are in effect designed to hold the hologram together until the close of this cycle.
When you leave your body, unless you have already achieved UNION with the One, the God-within, you will encounter a realm that precisely reflects your own consciousness. Your conscious and unconscious thoughts do generate and manifest your holographic reality.
There may be many entities – and there are millions of them – who will be inviting you to go with them, to join them, to play, to hang out with them, to come under their ‘influence’. These entities may even be your loved-ones or may in fact be ‘hungry ghosts’ only masquerading as your loved-ones. In effect, they will be aggressively ADVERTISING their particular realm within the Phantasmal Hierarchies as seductively as any late-night car dealer! Buyer, beware!
When you leave your body IGNORE ANY and EVERYONE! Even those you love.
First and foremost from your Heart chakra, call forth your OWN Soul, the God-within, as distinct from your current small identity-ego-self, which is generated by the GUNAS. Do not become distracted by these Myriad Worlds – however splendid, alluring, and comfortable.
Only your own Soul, the God-within you, knows ANYTHING relevant to your recent disembodiment and your posthumous state.
Imagine that at the end of the Kali Yuga, many beings who have been incarnating through the Four Cycles of Time will prefer to not be in vulnerable corporeal bodies. They will be perhaps rather bored and sitting it out on the ‘sidelines’ waiting for the close of the Kali Yuga and the Dissolution of the World, this current illusory holographic matrix.
Once your subtle body has made the conscious ‘re-connection’ with your Soul, you will KNOW your Path.
Trust ONLY the God-within you!
