The Truth is …
There is only the ONE, one Soul, one SELF, the ATMA, Brahman.
This is the magnificent energy we all sense that as the Sufis say lies beneath “the curtain of each atom.”
The substratum of All.
Like an amazing infinite imperishable immutable electromagnetic energy.
This energy, which we tend to term God, creates the Universe through us and all the other beings that exist throughout all the galaxies.
This One SELF, ATMA is who & what we really are.
The Sanskrit says clearly: TAT TVAM ASI.
Meaning “That Thou Art.”
You, every thing and every one are this magnificent energy.
So every living being is expressing their piece of God and creating endlessly through the Mind and the five senses.
God has so much to express – a vastness incomprehensible to the human mind.
When we train our consciousness to withdraw from five sense perception, multiplicity, and move into the Heart — we find our Source, we find Bliss Consciousness, our Home, who & what we really are.
Until then we flounder in the limited realms of our own delusions, the frail ego, the temporal experiences that always come to an end. In the sacred Sanskrit the words for pleasure & pain are often written as one word.
Of course, I can tell you this, you can read it in books, or listen to enlightened teachers — but it will have to be experienced by you! You will experience God’s Love. At the end of your journey there is nothing but Bliss and LOVE.
GOD is LOVE!
We are in the closing years of a Cycle of Time, the Kali Yuga. In the first cycle, the Satya Yuga, the cycle of Truth, everyone knew we were projections of the One, the Self ATMA, the electromagnetic field that is the substratum of All. We were in harmony with Truth.
By the time we find ourselves descended into this fourth cycle, and its closing Twilight period, most have lost their connection to Source. Thus Truth is far away from the majority. Individual behaviors become more confused, deluded, and destructive.
The Creative Cosmogonic Forces use this degenerate period to “clear the field” so that a new Satya Yuga can take place.
Symptoms of the Kali Yuga
Writing itself is a symptom of the Kali Yuga. Human beings have been living on planet Earth for 100s of 1000s of years before we have any record of the written word.
Down through the ages, ancient wisdom was orally transmitted and eventually written down in Sanskrit around 500 BC. These sacred texts give us some idea of the other three cycles of time. Originally orally transmitted, the texts were faithfully memorized and handed down from generation to generation. We no longer possess such an amazing command of memory. Imagine memorizing complete books! What we have available to us now in the Kali Yuga as the sacred texts written in the Sanskrit script was transcribed much later than it was composed – meaning spoken.
Some of these ancient texts accurately predict the conditions we are now experiencing. Remember these are predictions from well over 6,000 years ago – before the advent of writing and written history! The ancients who made these prophecies considered them to be abnormal, unheard-of, and outrageous.
From the Sanskrit texts the Vishnu Purana and the Linga Purana:
Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves.
Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly. They will cease to protect the people.
Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages.
There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.
Fetuses will be killed in the wombs of their mothers.
People will prefer to choose false ideas.
Precooked food will be readily available!
Everything we are experiencing can be known through this understanding. Our rulers are evil. They have completely lost their connection to the God-within them and even have decided that the “useless eaters” will serve them best dead. Genocide.
This too will pass.
God is LOVE!
We meet in the Heart,
The Kashmir Shaivite Abhinavagupta tells us to say this:
“I AM INFINITELY POTENT AND ABSOLUTELY PURE CONSCIOUSNESS!”
