The Mystery of Vibrationless-Vibration: Spanda Karika
The person who perceives this whole universe, the whole cycle of the universe, as just one with God Consciousness, in this world, he sees that everything resides in God Consciousness and he is always filled with that supreme blissful state. There is no fear for him from any thing, any other substance in this world.
There is only one God Consciousness, which pervades everywhere. This is the reality of SPANDA. And it pervades everywhere, at the time of knowing It and at the time of not knowing It. If you know, still It pervades. If you don’t know, still It pervades.
At the time of the realization of God Consciousness when you enter in Samadhi, then you will feel that, “It was already there. I had nothing to achieve.” When you realize the state of God Cosnciousness in Samadhi, at that time, this memory comes in your mind,in the background of your mind: “It was already with me. It is not new.”
This whole universal activity is for him just a play, just a drama, he feels everything, good/bad, whatever he feels in the daily routine of life, he feels that it is only the play of God Consciousness.
Imagination is transformed in reality… Within yourself… Yes, imagination! Imagination works! Imagination is transformed into reality afterwards, after some time… Just focus each and every activity of your world towards God Consciousness.
