yes many thoughts, had to ponder a bit how to respond as english is not my first language and it is a subject of great interest for me and I would
like to type this in a way I don't sound arrogant or any other label. This is just my opinion and it will probably change with more learning...it is a
developing process after all....
...If one want to realize YOGA. which means union as many surely know. And in yoga and in any other true spiritual path or text there is one common
thing. That is union with the divine. So what does that mean?
It means the end result is something which you cannot know of with your senses or intellect as it is a state of being. This state is described as
something which cannot be described (neti neti for instance...). There are many other concepts such as turiya, sat chit ananda, enlightenment, ...
What does that mean?
if there is no place for any senses and intellect. How can I experiance this? Well what is I, I that thinks, feels,.. ?
hahah there is not a pleasant answer and this realization may...as you have already stated so... may hit hard! well for some it is and for some it is
not. It all depends on the attachment we give to ego and body. This is your experiance which you are describing and it not means that others sentient
beings will have the same. We all have different souls after all.
As I read your other posts this seems, where you are at? you said something about dying after all. I take it you have dissolved your ego and sense of
self completely or you are almost there. Kundalini rising is just a process which unfolds when you do that, as I take it from experience. No good or
bad in it. Just another distraction!
Cool. That is great achievement! it is not pretty as you said, well for some it is! For me, I have same experiences some good some bad if I must put
it this way. but have not totally managed this part yet, as I am not enough clean. My mind still has some attachments which needs to be worked out.
and no rush it will be worked out, I just have to find the right motivation and set my mind right with antidotes in my opinion.
Google antidotes and tibetan buddhism for more info. Basically mind tricks which help you to cleanse ego, stay motivated, confident, pure, etc...
And also the way to to that for me is bodhichitta. This term comes from buddhism and its real meaning is very beautiful! For anyone who wants real
progress should have something of that nature for base ground to reach self realization.
This is the key! ... in my opinion. But there are many paths, each souls must find his own way through numerous incarnations. Everything is a process
of learning. Of experiencing until a thirst for end of experiance arises. End of thinking, end of me, end of the souls, many different gods and every
so friend, all this is just a process. everything is a process. But "one thing/divine" is persistent throughout every process there is and complete
union with it is non describable! As long as we are trying to describe it we fail on all accounts!
But I feel with great certainty that such state of being, which is really a state which cannot be describable at all and nothing can be attached to it
is completely free of any burden of pain or happiness, of sorrow and even death and life or any other separation possible and in existence or non
Where is than place for soul, for god, for I?
Just in our waking or dreaming minds.
And also, when that happens this is just a start of our true being. It is not the end as some may conclude... Maybe the end of illusion and start of
Most wonderful, blissful, etc etc...words cannot come close to it. The same goes for intellect, senses...not even close!
find out who you are!
who am I ?
many paths...all leads to one ... the source. We can learn and use anything. No limits. No right or wrong. good or bad...at the end all is just a
learning mechanism for the SELF!
Only experiance and learning.
But all this talking can be stopped and I could just say it in indian terms which you seem most familiar with and say:
- first experiance samadhi.
- than experiance samadhi permanently
But to achieve permanent samadhi I learned that there is a process. Process or learning and cultivating bodhichitta.
Thoughts and ALL opinions are welcomed and encouraged, as I said, this is only my opinion. You can take it as an insane man ramblings : )
Also I apologize if this is maybe offtopic. It is may take on enlightenment. And how universe is build and what it is all about and what are ghost,
illusions, demons, gods, heavens and hell.... This post implicates many things.... ALL things haha ... a pun : )
