Some thoughts in between..... Of spirits and spiritual experiences

The whole thought of spirits manifesting and making an appearance is what our movies have given us by shaping our thought process through the mind as it readily accepts anything as long as our senses are happy and enjoying.

I don’t deny that these things happen but most of the times, these things that few people report are nothing but our minds games to make one’s senses happy. The spiritual experience is some thing all together different and it makes one progress beyond this materialistic self and the illusion. The knowledge of universal consciousness and our inner self reaching and coming in touch with the Supreme Being is an altering stage of life. Beyond this stage one becomes more peaceful and ego less as he has seen what really life is all about and then he/she does not gets the kick which one usually gets by being some thing different. Most of the times those yogi’s who have attained that stage does not talk about it as it does not matter to them as they see the world differently and their perspectives are different of the world after that …that is why the most revered yogis have attained Samadhi after attaining that reach.

But few of us who talk about are those who are still ignorant of the real thing and only groping in the dark or being lead by our own conscious mind into something called euphoria as it makes us more comfortable and sensibly peaceful that is all that our mind wants … Our mind does not want us to get disturbed so its makes stories out of our some experiences to explain things to us. We are always controlled by our senses and the king of senses is our mind which in effect controls us. The spiritual experience is beyond those sense and has a deeper meaning beyond the mind and once its attained the mind does not have a part to play at that level so that is why our mind fights so vigorously not to let go of that control.

One can have major spiritual experiences once one is able to hold on to initial on one thought (Which will be very difficult as our mind will run here and there with thousands of thoughts crowding this exercises) and then focus on the universal being and then one does see the real universal consciousness from where all our spiritual experiences originates. In our Veda’s its said that one should first try to hold on to one thought for 12 seconds, which is called on Unit and when on is able to hold on to 12 units on one Sound OM (The primordial sound) one reaches a stage of heightened consciousness and once that is done one should hold on to 12X12X12 seconds (28 minutes 48 seconds) on the universal light which opens the gateway (The kundalini rises at this time to reach the crown chakra) and at this stage one can and does experiences merging with the whole consciousness. The state is so blissful that one does not want to come out of it usually so it’s advised to be guided by a guru to reach this stage as one has been given a life to fulfill one’s Karma before attaining nirvana.

Om Namah Shivaya
