Universe is in us!

We Are In This Universe; The Universe Is In Us

We know that we are in the universe through our mind. But when we realize that we are the universe and universe is in us through our Self that is known Self Realization. The concept of universe in us is nothing new. This universal truth has been revealed from more than 10,500 BC by our Ancient Sages, Yogis, and Siddhas to our modern-day Philosophers, Poets and Physicists. Theories like Holographic universal field theory also express the same fact. I have given below some of their quotes relevant to this…

“As in Micro, so in Macro. The whole exists within the minutest particle and the minutest particle contains the whole. The atom contains the universe and the universe contains the atom, and neither exists without the other. Creator exists within creation, even as creation exists within creator.”  ~ Brahmarishi Mayan,  10,500 BC

In the Siddha system of medicine, man is viewed as a microcosm and the universe as a macrocosm. In other words, man is a miniature universe in himself. Our great Siddha Agasthiyar and other Siddhas realized and wrote about Andam Pindam Theory, quoting in Tamil

“Andathil ullathe pindam, Pindathil ullathe Andam, Andamum Pindamum ondre, Aarinthu thaan parkum pothey.”  ~ Sattamuni Gnanam

This means, what is there in the external cosmos existing within this body and the vice versa, both are one and the same when one realizes Thy self. Our body is a miniature cosmos all that is content in the universe/cosmos is contained in it as well. Microcosm and macrocosm are two aspects of a theory developed by Siddhas to describe human beings and their place in the universe. Man is said to be the Microcosm and world the macrocosm. This theory proves that what exists in the world is also exists in man.

“Heart is merely another name for the Supreme Spirit, because He is in all hearts. The entire Universe is condensed in the body, and the entire body in the Heart. Thus the Heart is the nucleus of the whole Universe.” ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

“You Are The Universe, Expressing Itself As A Human For A Little While.”                   ~ Eckhart Tolle

“You are the universe experiencing itself” ~ Alan Watts

“You are not just the drop in the ocean. You are the mighty ocean in the drop.”           ~ Rumi.

“We are part of this universe, We are in this universe, The universe is in us, Yes, the universe is in us” ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist 

This video of detailed universe will just give a glimpse of it…

“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”~ Albert Einstein

Hope we all learned something useful in 2012 and looking forward to learn more in 2013. Welcoming New Year with you all with better understanding, love, peace and harmony… :)

Vastu Brahmam?

Quote

Vastu Brahmam or Vastu Purusha or Vastu refers to primal, unmanifest, potential energy – Consciousness as energy. It is the energy through which and within which material forms manifest. Throughout history and among many cultures, this primal energy has been given many names. The names range from religious (God, Brahmam), artistic (Creative Intelligence) to scientific (the Unified Field). Vastu is that unmanifest, subtle or unseen energy field that lives eternally. It is the Field within which the manifest world exists as particles and is ultimately governed.

The Five Elements

———————————————————————————–
By Dr. Jessie Mercay
posted by Ganesh

The formation of the Five Elements (Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) is the outcome of the self-effulgent nature of the 9X9 Vaastu Purusha Mandala. Each element was created through the commingling of the previous elements – born of Cosmic Space, Om Light and Om Sound. As the unmanifest microabode progresses through its self spin unmanifest qualities of the five elements are distributed throughout the 8X8 cube. When the 8X8 cube springs forth into material existence, the five elements take on material form and are distributed throughout the 9X9 manifest form in the same Brahmasthan of floor plan 99 pattern as in the 8X8 cube. In the center of the cube (Brahmastan) Absolute Space mixes with relative/material space. In other words, the unmanifest and manifest coexist at once.

Vaastu

Each of the five elements has specific qualities. The individual qualities of the five elements support specific activities and purposes in human life. In built space where this 8=9 process intentionally occurs, activities of daily life are assigned to and conducted within the quadrants with the qualities most likely to support those activities. For example, if a structure is aligned with “The Grid” described above, the southeast corner of that grid is dominated bye the element of fire. Assigning activities related to that element (cooking over a fire) creates a life supporting effect on the results of those activities (preparation of food). Thus, in a built space reflecting the qualities of Vaastu Science and Technology, the laws of nature and the dynamic energies and vibrations of the elements of manifestation directly support activities of daily living.

The Thread of Light or Brahma Sutra

The Thread of Light or Brahma Sutra is a pathway of light energy that moves through the house in a straight line parallel to the properly placed front door. It flows from the Bindu point or center point of the Brahmasthan. This vibrating energy string is the central cosmic fire from which OM Light, OM Sound, and the Five Elements arise. Its origin is the central point of the Brahmasthan and extends outward and upward from there. The Brahma Sutra also exists on the vertical plane. It rises vertically through the elevation of the house from the center of the Brahmasthan (Bindu point) as a vertical pillar of Cosmic Fire – a cosmic energy generator. The origin of Vaastu energy in a Vaastu house is from this central point in the house and not from the sun, moon or stars. The properly established Vaastu house generates its own energy and draws from consciousness directly. Hence, we do not want to block the center of the house with walls, tables, fountains, statues or any other object. It must be unobstructed.

The Yoni Line

The Yoni Line (Yoga Naalam) is a pathway of energy that flows from the front door straight through the house to the back door or window -­ placed directly opposite the front door. It allows for the free flow of energy through the structure. That free flow of energy interacts with the aliveness of the house making the entire structure even more vibrant. When properly placed, the structure lives and breathes harmoniously. Yoni refers here to direction – the direction of the face of the house – where the front door is located.

  • A point of interest is that in some forms of home design (Feng Shui for example), the house is closed from the outside as much as possible to contain the energy. In Vaastu Science and Technology, because the structure is actually an energy generator, it is appropriate to allow the energy to flow outward through the Yoni 100 Line, the Brahma Sutra and Soma Sutra lines. The self-effulgent nature of a Vaastu home far surpasses most homes in which the energetic patterns are stagnant or otherwise unknown.

Begin at the Beginning!

Begin to Begin…

Do not fool yourself. If you are still involved in harming others, hostility, gossip, unkindness, secret motives, meanness, you are not growing spiritually.  Your body and actions are under the Law of Karma. You must examine your character. I meet so many people who say, “I am Free, I am Pure Consciousness.” And they think that they can do whatever they want. Go after whatever they want. Harm others. Be disrespectful. They are out of control. They wonder why they do not feel Joy. Bliss. Love… the Truth of their Being. A love for humanity. All these things.

Observe your actions. You must Begin to Begin. To realize Your True Nature. When one is alone, one Knows the Truth. They are constantly creating karma, and working it out. Receiving pain from their actions towards others, from their secret thoughts, actions and intentions. This is why ancient scriptures say that you must begin with The Virtues: Harm no one! “Begin at the Beginning.”

The Truth…

No matter what you do or don’t do, no matter if you’re happy or sad, no matter if you’re rich or poor…sick or healthy… you’re still going to turn into a bag of bones! This is what happens to the average person. This is what you have to look forward to, BUT…if you will only go within yourself and know the Truth about yourself, then this becomes a mirage. When you discover you have Eternal LIFE, that you have never been born and you can never die…when you discover that Bliss is your Real Nature, Bliss…you were meant to be Blissful every second of the day!

Happiness, TRUE HAPPINESS… that does not involve person, place or thing. When you understand this Truth, you become free in IT. You will ALWAYS be alive. ALWAYS! The body becomes like a bubble in the ocean. Bubbles come, bubbles go. Bodies come, bodies go. Here today, gone tomorrow.

When you’re sort of young, you don’t think about these things. You think about having fun all the time, enjoying, going out into the world, making something of yourself. When you’ve made something of yourself, you’ve made a mess of yourself by believing you’re the body. By believing you are the mind or believing you are living in reality. Whereas in truth, the only reality is the Reality you don’t know… Reality that is beyond time and space… beyond worlds and bodies, but you cannot taste this Reality that I’m speaking of unless you virtually give up your life. I don’t mean you have to kill yourself… I mean, give up the life that you’re living MENTALLY. Stop believing that the life you’re living is important… that…there’s something you have to do… something you have to accomplish. The True Life is within. The Real world is within yourself, free of all pain, sorrow…free of man’s…inhumanity to man… free of everything. There’s a world like that, you know, a Real world and full of Happiness and Joy and Peace. A world that has no beginning and no end. That world is YOU. YOU ARE THAT!…but we’re going about it the wrong way… most of us.

A true spiritual aspirant hardly has anything to say. There is no one to debate… no one to argue points of spirituality… no one to say, “I’m right” or “You’re right”…”This is right” or “This is wrong.” A true spiritual aspirant is very quiet, very still. Does not make a lot of waves, but watches, looks and does nothing. Anything that has to be done will be done through the person. It’s so easy to live a life like this. It’s so easy to be still and allow the Power that Knows the Way to move you in the right direction, to lead you. You do not have to raise a finger. There is absolutely nothing that you have to do. Why will you not trust your Self and stop fighting? Stop having a battle within yourself. Leave yourself alone… Remember I told you before, you have to learn to love yourself? If you can really love yourself you can trust yourself… go easy on yourself… develop loving kindness… compassion.

Life is never what it appears to be. Everything is maya (delusion); yet maya is also beautiful. Do not hate maya! Work with maya by not reacting to things, but enjoying its beauty and love and peace. The whole thing may be a dream but ENJOY the dream! Pick out the good things of the dream and think of them. Ignore the bad things. Learn to be Still. When I say learn to be Still, I’m not referring to meditation. Remember, when you meditate there has to be a subject and an object. That’s duality! When I say to be Still, I mean just be Still… BE STILL. Do not think of anything special. Just be Still…Be Quiet. I’m not speaking of being Still over here, alone, but in your everyday life! Think of all the noise that some of you have made this morning as you got out of bed. The talking, the arguing, the thinking, the mind chattering. This is what I’m referring to…BE STILL! You can talk to your mind this way: Tell your mind to “Be Still.” When your mind begins to chatter, say, “Be Still.” When the mind starts telling you all kinds of things about somebody else say, “Be Still!!” When the mind brings up things of the past, say “Be Still” That’s all you have to do! YOU ARE THE POWER…you can Still the mind if you really want to…just by telling it to “BE STILL.”

There is absolutely nothing in this world to be excited about. NOTHING! For everything must change. Therefore, if you become excited about something in this world, you become… disillusioned… upset. For ALL things are subject to the law of change. Rather go WITHIN. If you can really go within, you will feel a Peace which passes all understanding…Divine Joy, and this Peace and Joy will become your world. You will see it wherever you look, wherever you go. Remember, the only thing you see in this world is yourself, nothing else. Wherever you look, you see yourself. If you don’t like what you see, CHANGE YOURSELF! NOTHING wants to hurt you. NOTHING wants to cause you pain.

Every day you have to remember your Real Nature. You have to remember who you are. That you are Pure Awareness. You are the Absolute Reality which is like boundless space. The only difference between Absolute Reality and boundless space is that Absolute Reality is Consciousness. Consciousness is like boundless space. It is everywhere present and all the images are only superimposition on Consciousness. Your body is only an image. It is not the truth about you. It is an image. It is an image in boundless space. This means it doesn’t exist. It appears to exist, but it doesn’t. Just by remembering these things I’m sharing with you, will FREE you! Start your day off this way, by remembering who you are. You can say it to yourself, “I am not this body that runs around all over the world. I am not this body that has problems. I am not this body that sees things wrong. I am not this body at all. I never was this body. I Am That which has always been and That which will always be. That which has never been born, That which never dies…Eternal…Self-Sufficient. I AM THAT.”

You have so many years left on this earth, in this body, so to speak, what are you doing with them? With the days…the weeks…the months…the years? If you really run after material gain, you’re wasting your time! If you’re looking to make yourself happy physically, you’re wasting your energy. I can assure you you’ll be wonderfully happy if you will go within the Self and try to understand who you are. Then you will REALLY be happy. You will have unknown happiness that you never believed existed!

You Are The One And There’s No Other

You are the ONE that has always been and will always be. SEE yourself that way. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. The only reason you feel sorry for yourself is because you think of the past and the future. If you would only stop thinking, all of your sorrows would end, so to speak. Everything would come to a screeching halt, if you shut your mind.

So those of you who are making New Year resolutions, resolve that this year you will find Illumination. You will find total freedom this year. This year you’ll be completely free and liberated. This is the year for liberation! Some of you are making excellent progress. Going to lunch with you and talking to you, I see where you’re coming from and you’re doing very well. You’re disappearing! You’re coming into your own. Everything is unfolding as it should. Have faith in your Self… and enjoy your Self… trust your Self… love your Self… BE AT PEACE!!!
