|Your site expresses much of what I believe. We are mind and emotion created to express ourselves and God in a physical body in this informal school called 'life'. We learn the lessons when we learn to look within for the answers and not to the stars or 'out there somewhere'. Your site is beautifully presented and opens doors to those still seeking 'out there'. --- Clara Howard at http://www.olmi.com/clara.htm|
|Who am I?|| Where did I come from?
|| Why am I here?
|| What am I to do?
|| How can I find God?
|| When I die where will I go?
Why not accept the saying: "God in His Supreme playfulness, by mere resolve, has been inclined to create the worlds and they were created forthwith." |
Manifestation of God is the universe. Brahman (Father) is Manifestation. Mother, Brahmamayi, is of a piece of Brahman. Creation started with them. Existence on earth is a manifestation of His Supreme Energy.
|When an individual first appears in the womb of the mother, matter appears instantly. At that stage mind lies in a state of inertia. But remember mind and matter are nothing but One. With their gradual manifestation the differences in them are identified. From that state the individual is in the domain of nature and a series of phenomena determine one's every development. Sometimes it seems mechanical.|
|God has sent us here to experience His Divine Play. This whole life is God's Divine Play. Vrindavan Leela (playground of Divine Love) cannot be displayed anywhere except in this world. Only on this earth have human beings the right to savor His taste of Love.|
|There is no birth or death. Everything goes on changing form in the stream of eternity. Being 'born' with a human body in this world is itself destiny. One who has a taste for God's Love wants to be born again and again with a human body because the taste of His Love cannot be possible other than in that human birth.|
|Your psychosomatic (mind/body) existence is essentially feminine responding back and forth to the polarity of life. Human beings have individual shape (male/female) according to the Divine Will of the Lord, in spite of the fact that they originate from the same natural elements. Both (male/female) are dictated by the prompting of the mind and ego. Moving and acting in the plane of mind, all are female and the only goal is to realize the Supreme Male.|
|When you take on a body in the realm of nature the power of Yogamaya (Divine Creative Force) is bound to create restrictions and obstacles in the course of life for individuals, families, societies and even for nations.|
|The Substance is One. This universe as we find it today is the result of a long process of steady evolution. The world is only a small speck. You proceed from the general to the particular, but ultimately the general and particular become One. Change your angle of vision.|
|Human birth is the rarest of all births. Try to live your life keeping Him in view. Human life is meant to feel His Divine Play and thereby understand the nobility of the Creator. The mystery of birth will be unfolded only when the sweetness and beauty of the God's Divine Play, which is the eternal Truth, is realized by turning the consciousness inward.|
|You can't come here without being wedded to Truth, the Word, Mahanam (God's Name within). The two sounds of which are being chanted within your heart 'round the clock in rapturous spontaneity. That Mahanam is the Lord within everyone. Your body is the Shrine of God.|
|Human beings are born in the body with God from His blissful world to get real Ananda (Supreme Bliss) by the taste (Rasa) of His Love in this mortal and illusory world. But superstitious human involvements and ignorant irresponsible attitude toward God do not allow you to come near to Him or to feel His love for which you get the rare human birth. You ignor God in pursuit of worldly pleasures, profits, attachments, which please now and depress the very next moment. You waste the precious human birth given to you. You cannot give up the superstitions of your egoistic living in the world and you forget Him, the Truth.|
|Have no fear. The entire paraphernalia of nature is the creation of the Supreme Being, the all-pervading Truth. For the relish of His Divine Play, God has appeared as many in the mirror of the mind. The Divine Play is intrinsically bipolar having positive and negative, ups and downs, good and bad. Ocillations between them provide the basis for all the creative possibilities of the Play. When you are in the domain of nature, you have to acquiesce in Prarabdha (the evolutionary process of your life). When the Play is over, the two poles coalesce into mere Existence, all existents having disappeared.|
|Try to know your birth, why you have come here and what is your purpose. God never created you for suffering or bondage or agony. Rather He suffers for you because when you were born you forgot His purpose. Your ego is the root cause of suffering and bondage. Complete surrender to God is the only way to get rid of ego and know your purpose, which is to enjoy this Play of the Divine. Then you will understand what is birth.|
|Space and time exist only in your mind. Space and time each have infinite dimensions. Every segment of space is present in every other segment. Every split second also is present in every other second. So space and time are both ubiquitous (everywhere simultaneously). Time is a ceasless duration and space an unfettered expanse. Matter is One. Indistinguishable, it wears different looks on different occasions. There is no dichotomy of matter and spirit, they are one integer that is the sole Reality.|
