786. . . the sufi and the swami – Om Allah !

786...7 principles of Self Realization

sufi: namaste oh great  Swami Shivananda Giri

swami:
Namaste and blessings

oh great being of sanatana dharma

please tell me the way to realization

In the forgetting of your true and original nature in order to incarnate as an apparently separate entity, the “illusion” of maya arose

once the illusion is seen for what it is and you remember and recognize the natural condition, the hardest part is done

what is the way to remember this original nature

there are many, any of the “mystical” paths all reveal the same thing through varying means

just depends which way is more appropriate for you

what is the shortest most effective means oh great Guru remover of darkness

doesn’ work that way

the only variable important for you is does it touch you deeply

find that feeling at the feet of a Freed One who has perceivd Truth through that path and then follow what they say

what is the most important aspect of the path

your dedication to it

your single pointed focus on the goal

all the means and methods reveal the same stuff

they just speak of it in different ways

the Sufi Master, the Yoga Master, the Taoist Master all know the same thing to be True

may the light om om sat chi ananda shine in you as you eternaly oh great being of Light

11:40am

umut-kebabci-whirling-dirvish-1

they just took differing trails up the same mountain and reached the only peak there is to be reached

all of them inwardly witnessed the same sorts of phenomenon

whatever necessary for their varying karma and dharma

its really not a gain of anything at all but direct and conscious Knowledge

of what is eternally and infinitely the case

The goal is the falling away of the concepts and limitations

this is accomplished best, in my view, by meditation and japa

Guided by One who has already done it

swami : is this making sense?

sufi: yes it is as clear as the blue sky

like the sky, any conditions can appear within it when the circumstnces are correct

yet the sky is never affected by any of the appearances of change within it

“GOD” exists within you as YOU

you have spent lifetime after lifetime seeking only That

all the while thinking you are other than That and separate

this is the way suffering arises

this conversation took place between sufi ananda and Swami Shivananda Giri

786. . . Drinking from the Source- 2

“He who is supremely devoted to the Lord and has the same devotion to his guru, to him alone will the truths explained herein clearly reveal themselves.” Guru Gita vs 19

The Guru Gita infaticly states that the Guru and God are One ! In this verse the Gita is asking the devotee to have the same devotion for his Guru as he does for God. Man is the microcosm of God. All that is manifest in God is manifest in/as man. Cheikh Bawa Muhayadeen has said “man is God in the forgetting of himself.

In the absence of the ego or the concept of a false ‘i” MAN exists in a state of Oneness with God. the very idea “i exist” is a falsehood. the Only I that exist and has true BEing is the all inclusive infinite state of the I AM GOD consciousness. the very fact that this I AM is the Only consciousness shows its relationship to man because man shares in the possibility of the awareness of the true I AM GOD state. When man comes to know with certainty his oneness with the I AM state,  Man is a Guru/God.

In sandskrit the word Gu means darkness.  the word Ru means remover. thus the word Guru means remover of darkness. Light is the only remover of darkness. Light is God. the Guru, having the power to remove darkness is the manifestation of the Light of God made flesh. “and the word dwelt amougst men and became flesh.” – Holy Bible

In the Bagavad Gita Lord Krishna proclaims there is no difference between Him and the non-manifest Brahman. Lord Krishna emaplains to Arjuna that the way to merge with Him is through Bhakti(love-devotion). the disciple HU has the same devoation to his Guru as he does with God will ultimately destroy his ego and merg/melt in/with God-Allah-Brahman!
