Brahma is Always with Us
It is time to open the flower of your life and offer it to the Supreme, to live the inner moment within in the outer world. Allow yourself to open, like the song about the hollow bamboo. You be the hollow bamboo. Allow yourself to bring the love of Parama Purusha into this world, into yourself, and to all beings. Lord has so much love for all beings. All are his children. His grace is an endless shower falling on each and everyone. He associates with each of you and all creation through his ota and prota yogas. Through yogamaya he makes his intention known in the world of form and color. Prakrti not only operates insaincara to manifest this colorful array, this dance of creation, but when she also operates in pratisaincara, the introversial pull dominates.
In that introversial pull, yogamaya comes into existence. In turn, it brings about the manifestation of the sadguru and his unconditional love in this material universe. It is a shower of grace and endless unconditioned love always existing. He is always associated with you, closer and closer. No one can be as close as him. He knows your every thought and your every movement. There is unconditional grace always falling upon you. All you need do is lower the umbrella of ego, drop the feeling of "I" and "mine," and realize that your life is an expression of his grace. His grace has given you everything you have. It will give you everything you will be.
Samskara is only a response to past reactions; it has no binding upon consciousness. The Self is eternal, pure, unconditioned and immortal. Samskara does not bind the Self. It is only a weaving of experience. Without the sense of ownership of "I," it holds no binding at all. Remove the sense of "I" and "mine" and the binding of samskara completely disappears. For samskara binds due to association with "I-amness." When "I-amness" is removed and one sees, "All is Brahma. All belongs to Brahma. It is the grace of Parama Purusha that moves this whole universe," then who is there to own samskara? It is simply passing experience. It simply is as all else is. It is neither good nor bad. It is neither grasped nor let go of. It simply is.
All experience becomes something that is. Longing fills the heart and goes away. Your stub your toe and it hurts. That is. Then it goes away. Bodies are born. They live this life and fade and death comes. Birth is and death is. Neither binds, nor does the experience between. All is and consciousness knows, experiences, witnesses what is. There need be no more binding than that. It is only when the sense of "I-amness" becomes so fond of attachment to what is and then worries about what was and what will be that ego comes in. With ego comes fear and attachment to how it is, whether it is pleasurable to be grasped or painful, to be avoided. These things bind but the Self is eternal, free and unbound.
The grace of Parama Purusha, the eternal being, is ever showering on you. Turn from these bindings and look to him, dance with him, for to him all simply is. He rejects nothing of creation. He does not place value that this is better than that. He simply watches and witnesses all that is. For while it changes and changes, he sees the eternal nature of all things, the unchanging nature of all that is, in its constant flux and flow. In the nature of Prakrti he sees eternal stillness, equanimity, and peace. For the consciousness, the essential nature is unchanging, eternal and unmoved. The movements of time and space, the elements of Prakrti, are all appearances. In the deeper water, those shallow movements of the surface matter little.
Walk in the depths. Live in the depths and if you are a teacher, an acharya, walk in the depths and call others to the depths. In the depths, there is no pull and no push. There is the silence of eternal being. There is the fulfillment of love unconditional. In the depths, there is no one to lose, no one to need, nothing to fear. All beings are one being and that one is eternally with you, closer and closer, wearing innumerable forms and also formless.
The eternal beloved plays the dance of creation before your witnessing eyes, becoming so many lovers, becoming mother, father, sister, brother, becoming friend and lover, and finally, when the game is a little old, appearing in a truer form, in a more lasting form. Let that one put you to sleep at night and wake you in the morning. He wears many forms, whispers to you in endless colors of creation, speaks to you in the whispers of the forest, lake, sunset, night, sunrise. Even though he may sometimes tell you stories that make you cry as you feel your heart is breaking, sometimes he may dance with you in ecstasy. All is to delight you with the tastes of creation. Even though he wears all those forms, when it all is said and done he stands with you eternally. In all your aching and longing to search for him, you will discover he has been there all along.
You thought you could find him in a particular person, in a particular experience, but those are only the differing forms he presents. He himself abides with you since the beginning of your existence. Through all of your growth and development, he has been there. He has held your hand and nursed you. He has played for you the song of creation with its shadows and pain and its joy and light. All along, he has remained constant, waiting for you to grow sufficiently to discover the one who is behind the play, the one who is always with you in all of the characters of the play, the one who has never left your side. He is the one for whom you have cried long nights of loneliness, for whom you have felt despair of loss and yet, he has always been there, knowing you will rediscover him, knowing your love will be fulfilled.
Sink into the deep waters where he abides and from there walk in this world knowing all forms to be his form, all beings to be his expression. He walks in light and shadow. Know him in your heartache. Know him in your greatest joy. Your beloved is at hand. Do not fail to recognize him. Let his love be with you. Oh, child, put away all notions of self-importance. Become innocent and sweet. Let him take you from the darkness of maya. Let him hold you and soothe your heart. What else is there in this universe? Become whole. Put aside your fear. He is for you. He is for you.
