Have you ever thought - what is the difference between you and me, or you and him/her? Of course, you can point out numerous differences. But, basically there is no difference at all. There is no difference at all among all manifested realities of this existence. All these so pin-pointed differences are there just because of our thoughts. You are a bundle of some specific thoughts; I am a bundle of some specific thoughts. Just imagine- if no thoughts were there in our mind at all, then what difference would have been left between you and me, or you and him/her? Whatever perception you have about yourself and others, these perception are nothing, but, just thoughts only. You are so and so, I am so and when you perceive something in terms of words, it is indirect perception. A newly born child does not have any word, but when he/she feels hungry, he/she cries. Perception is there, but words are not there in that perception. This is the direct perception. Though child may have very very limited consciousness, but when you transcend to the highest possible peak of consciousness, you are utterly aware, but you remain free from all words or thoughts. In this state just direct perception is there and when you are operated thought just direct perception, in that state the entire existence is just one unit. This grand unity is God which contains each and everything existing in the universe- manifested as well as yet to be manifested realities. So, the moment you land in the realm of direct perception, all is one and only one spontaneous reality. When you exist as this grand unity, you yourself are God. In fact, it is wrong to say “when you exist as this grand unity”, basically you and everyone always exist in the form of this grand totality. Since our consciousness is limited and localized, that’s why, we fail to realize this supreme truth. The world is nothing, it is just the play or words. Just think of yourself and the entire world once again, read my following poem, and then analyzes everything with crude logic. See whether you land to this divine conclusion or not -that there is no difference, absolutely no difference at all between you and me, or you and him/her. Please following poem of mine titled “World – the web of words”
World – the web of words
every man surrounded with words,
collision of words.
selfishness inherent in words.
hormones absorbed in words.
a vacuum in words
An explosion of words
a beautiful arrangement of words
ignorance shrouded with words.
a dense web of words.
But what’s beyond words ?
Quietude, silence, a complete zero,
Peace, Tranquility, a total serenity.
Have you ever felt, wondered and thought that thought we are married or in relation to one person with purity and honesty in our heart, but, then also, when we come across other woman (or, the gender of your interest), we feel attracted towards them. Stereotyped approach would suggest – that happens because of lust in our mind. But tell me who we are? We are not here as the selection of our choice. We are just one reality of this vast existence. Whatever attribute we have in our being, these are not just because of our selection. They are just there as a part of the grand scheme of the vast. So, how we are responsible for this lust? This lust may appear negative in our deterministic consciousness, but in absolute terms, whether they are really negative? They are neither negative, nor positive. They are just as they are. Positive or negative is just our interpretation. Will you blame God for those so called negativity? Even this so called negativity insinuates to a grand divine truth that we all are just one unit a perfectly inherent unit, not just co-integrated. We are one and only one perfectly united inherent unit, not as a combination and summation of our individual localized self.
Let me share one of my real life incidences. Once I was attending Oscian Film Festival event in Siri Fort Auditorium, New Delhi. There was a huge gathering of beautiful girls and women around me. I felt attracted towards them. When I became aware of this fact, I introspected myself – Is there sensuality in me? There was no sensuality in my feelings at all. Then I asked question to myself, then why I am feeling attracted towards these women? I thought about it and ultimately I got answer. Just then I wrote a poem titled “Ocean of Faces” expressing that answer.
Ocean of Faces
The vast ocean of faces,
the high tide of impulses all around,
despite being so different from each other,
I don’t know –Why I search my face in them.
How strange it is –
I could not find myself in my own face,
Then, why I am looking for in others?
May be, individuality is not the total truth,
May be, many are present in me,
Or, I am present in many.
Every bit yearns for the whole,
that’s why, I search my whole face in others .
So, if you are interested in total truth, then come out of the cocoon of your limited self. You are basically the vast, vastest of all vasts. So, why not live the glory of that vast? But, how we can come out of our confinement? The only one way to come out from our confinement is to get rid of our beliefs. We are slaves of our beliefs and beliefs can never lead you to the realization of absolute truth. Your theism is nothing, but just the strongly imposed belief in your sub-consciousness. That way, you remain just as a prisoner and you can never relish the pristine beauty of the vast infinite sky.
