    More precisely, all gross bodies in the ephemeral world, which are involved in the creative process, are possessed with patent and latent (conscious) memory. The activation (awareness) of memory is intelligence. The conscious of patent (physical world) is—Mind, whereas the ‘awareness’ of the latent (subtle and casual) is Divine Consciousness (Brahman-Chethna).
    The individual mind, when becomes ‘aware’ of its ignorance or has exhausted its limits of knowledge and has become ‘aware’ of its totality of knowledge— which is very meager indeed—it automatically becomes aware of its true Self, which is Universal-Consciousness, the Cosmic-Self (Consciousness).
    The conscious (patent) brain cells (activated memory) is the individual mind and when the self has known itself or has become aware of its stored knowledge, its conscious transcends its limitlessness and realises its limitations, which was never latent! So both states are part of the physical brain; the physical (gross) mind and the Cosmic-Mind. The Self is the totality of knowledge—patent and latent—that each brain supports. Once the delusion of misconception—that the gross mind’s ‘existence/being is because of its involvement with the external world and is thus of the physical world only—is removed by accepting the fact that not only the matter but its subtle and casual constituents, also belong to the same Origin: The Creator—whether It be the Supreme-Intelligence/ToE, or Its creation, cannot be differentiated as two separate entities. As Newton’s theory of Gravity or Einstein’s theory of Relativity are not separate from Creation, equally the elements and the constituents, and the more subtle forces which created them, are also not separate or identical from their Creator—Nature. Then how Nature can be identical and separate from its Principle—Divinity (Reality)? As intelligence cannot be separated from the intelligent, it cannot be separated from its Creator! As each body has in it its source of creation (spermatozoa), the mind, which is its embodiment, has in it its creator—the intelligence. We only need to ‘know’ its constituents of PraJnaanam—Supreme-Intelligence. All of these ‘elements’ are in our mind (brain), only we have to ‘know’ of them (the constituents). We are the body; we are the mind; the intelligence; the Aathma; and the Supreme-ParamAathma! Because these are embodied in us! Why don’t we try to ‘know’ (realise) this also, as we are pursuing the knowledge of the physical world? Why don’t we pursue the intelligence which is its embodiment, as we are ‘discovering’ the intelligence in the physical world? Should we not try to discover the source of this intelligence, which is embedded in our own brain, because it is the same brain, which is discovering intelligence in the external world? There is no such thing as external and internal worlds—both are One: One is the subtle aspect of its projections (the second). That’s all there is to ‘know or realise’!
    These simple truths are beyond the discerning minds of the so-called rationalists. Because no intellectual, scholar or a rationalist can ever imagine that there is a higher state of conscious! We have confined, rather imprisoned our minds, with superficial boundaries of caste, creeds and regions; resulting in the down gradation of our intellectual level. We have relegated to the junkyards of our minds, those subjects which pursued truth. Philosophy, physical science and spiritualism are no more as important as the social sciences, which have taken their places. Very few students go for fine arts and pure science subjects. Hardly any college has post graduation program for philosophy. Being a learner, this l.s. has been associating with the top brains of his times, but to his surprise, he has not come across a single dignitary, who ever made any sincere endeavor for the extension of his ‘thought’! Their creativity was confined only within the syllabi of their text books or the classics of western novelists, dramatists and historians. Standards of modern writer’s creativity, is very poor and irrelevant; with the result that our universities are churning out students with useless baggage of degrees, which do not earn them their livelihood even. Degrees are bought and ‘creative’ writers have ghost writers, whose only expertise is data collection from rubbish surveys, in the name of scholarly papers. The fault does not lie in our genes but with the system of education. These rationalists have followed only one path that of materialism—read commercialism—while completely ignoring the inner significance of the finer sciences, which put life into the material (inorganic) world.
    Physical world and its subtle constituents are not separate from each other. These ignoramuses have made a divide, as they did with earth’s topography by creating artificial boundaries in the name of nations. They have divided the indivisible ‘Conscious’ into external and internal worlds. Being all permeating and subtler than any elements of Nature, it simply cannot be tinkered with. These ingenious have further divided it into so many sub-conscious levels that its projection—the mind, is compartmentalized into even more segmentation. Ego, which is a non-entity, has been attributed into four facets viz. wealth, progeny, culture and economy. All of these are related to one’s way of life

    A genuine sadhak(seeker) is not interested in amassing worldly awards and rewards; neither he is for acclaim or infamy. His placement or way of life is an obligation, which he discharges for society in the spirit of dedication. Except for noble thoughts and love in heart, there is no room for flimsy desires, which are related only to objects, which are transitory and without any underlying substance of truthfulness. An intellectual’s laboratory is not the objective world but (in) his consciousness. A seeker (of reality) is always reveling in pure state of his Conscious. He has unwavering mind with steadfast vision. In that state, not a single (flicker) ‘thought’ or ‘idea’ crops up. His intense concentration contemplates only on his focus of enquiry—Reality of the ephemeral world (Creation). In this state of mind (consciousness), the mind is calm i.e. without any activity. His thought, word and deed are impression-less and fully attuned to the harmonious co-existence between his senses and the elements. When the individual mind is disassociated from its objective world, it regains its truest state of pure-consciousness, i.e. Cosmic-Consciousness—which is its innate nature. His (Vedhaanthik) quest in not to pursue every objects in Creation and find its individual intelligence, but to reaffirm the underlying unity in diversity. Cosmic-Consciousness is not composition of sum total of intelligence of Creation, which ‘exist’ in the Brahmand (Cosmos)!
    The beauty of (Divine) system is: If one ‘knows’ the reality (extent) of ones’ mind, it automatically transcends its original state of Cosmic-Consciousness (Mind). The only problem which persists at this stage is the nagging habit of the individual mind to resurface again, as the sadhak’s realisation of Reality is very partial. He has Its glimpses only, not Its realisation. So he is occasionally waylaid with the disease of ‘doubt’ (nescience) like the atheists. Only in his case, his doubts are impregnated with the ‘doges’ of Divine-effulgence—though in very small dosage. With persistent Sadhna these initial bouts absolve and the sadhak realises his true identity—the Aathma (Soul), which is one (united) with all others. That, there is only one Identity and it is universal and omnipresent! The reason for initial ‘doubts’ become clear, as one realises that these ‘glimpses’ of Reality were, in fact, due to the grace of Divine. Thereafter the sadhak has to earn the grace with his unceasing self efforts. As the efforts (level of Sadhna), so the results! They (sadhak) usually realise partial view (awareness) of ‘Divine-Consciousness’, as their being in the pure state of conscious is of short durations. As their periods/duration of being ‘aware’ is increasing, their state of being in Brahmaananadham (Braahmik Bliss) is proportionately increasing. This is the most vital stage of the sadhaks’ journey of Realisation. The majority cannot resist the temptation and fall prey, to exploit the ‘partial’ gains of ‘divine grace’, by assuming their attainment level as final and acclaim themselves as masters! Innocent and genuine subjects are snared by the tempting nets of the oratory of these half-baked masters and blindly follow them, surrendering their wealth and souls. No master is competent enough to transform the lives of his followers. God has not delegated His powers to any human being to enlighten/blossom the latent ‘Divinity’ in man, on His behalf; until He incarnates Himself in human body, as Avathaar(Incartion of God in human form) and teach the humanity by living an exemplary life and presenting Himself as a living example.
    (An aside: Let us be clear about the concept of Avathaar. In Indian scriptures Raama and Krshan are regarded as Avathaar. This is not so. They are in their human form quite like other ordinary men. All of you are the embodiments of the Divine. The idea that God is different from you should be given up. You have to develop the feeling that God is no different from you) (Baba).

    Inspire, be Blessed
    We observe Nature is producing, from micro to macro level bodies, which sustain for some time and then disintegrate. On our planet there are wonderful creations designed by the Master-Creator. These creations are being produced by the permutation of the subtle forces, i.e. the five elements. The human mind too is creating wonderful worlds in its imagination and replicating them into material objects. Only his creations are the result of materials, sourced from Nature, whereas Nature is converting its intelligence into material projection out of its forces (elements). If Nature can convert its ‘intelligence’ into material projection, then the man—who is its creation—should also be, equally, equipped with the same intelligence and powers to execute it into material projection (design), from elements, which are within him! But in his case, he borrows (acquire) not only its intelligence but also the powers/forces from Nature, to give shape to his (subtle) plans into material projection. If Nature is capable to translate its intelligence into material projections, then why man is incapable of translating his intelligence into material manifestation!
    The answer is not far to seek. Because the ‘inherited’ intelligence in man is, latent in form, with the result that we have to re-acquire knowledge (intelligence) from Nature and create—rather re-impose—the data-bank of memories (mind). All creations of Nature, excepting human beings, are vested with inherited-qualities—without the ‘will’ of their own, and thereby discharge themselves, exactly according to that.
    A banana tree produces bananas only. They have no will (free-will) of their own. Only human beings are capable to ‘tinker’ with the Nature or its laws, as they are, additionally embodied with the ‘Divine-attributes’.
    As earlier stated, Divine Consciousness in human being is in latent form that is why at birth; their brains are devoid of ‘inherited’ intelligence. Only after coming into interaction with external world, they build up their individual intelligence (knowledge). This individual intelligence, which is entirely acquired, is different from the Divine-Intelligence—which in any case is, embedded in latent form. It is therefore natural, the individual minds—which are the composition of acquired knowledge, are always engrossed and involved with the external world. These minds are not equipped to transcend their barriers and delve into the transcendental realms. Having once learnt to transcend these acquired minds, we become ‘Aware’ of Divine-Consciousness, on which these superficial minds had projected (as clouds block the view of cosmos from earth). Unless the Awareness/Enlightenment of Divine-Consciousness is attained/realised, one is bereft of Its powers—though the mind, like Nature enjoys all the powers inherent in them both. Like Nature, the human mind, being possessed of phenomenal and multi-dimensional facets is, capable to create, sustain and destroy the material objects. It has inherited from Nature the power of Sankalp Shakthi, which can be executed through intense power of concentration. In fact ‘will/Sankalp’ itself is the concentration of all subtle powers enshrined in Nature/mind. Whosoever develops or awakens these powers is, automatically empowered to discharge the three attributes (of C-S-D).
    So what is super-natural about these powers of the mind! It acquires the knowledge from mother-Nature, so its intelligence is synonymous with its Source. On the basis of the acquired ‘intelligence’ from Nature, the mind is fully equipped with those powers, which comes with that (acquired) knowledge. But in case, the same mind transcends its limited field of ‘data-bank’, its real nature—cosmic intelligence--gets revealed, which is universal in nature and content.

    For a BrahmanJnaani(Self-realised), the material world does not ‘exist’. Not that he denies its physical existence! He knows its primal cause and the Source! He knows behind the objective world is the Supreme-Intelligence that causes its creation. He knows that secret of gross-subtle-casual bodies is not even the conscious, awareness or the consciousness! However subtle state an element might be in, or whatever its state of consciousness, it still remains the ‘creation’ of the ‘Intelligence’. For him there is no difference between the ‘intelligence’ of the individual mind and the Supreme-Intelligence, as both are one. As when human mind awakens its ‘latent’ intelligence, the barriers of ignorance are broken and the universality of Self (Supreme-Aathma) reveals Itself. The existence of Jagath (ephemeral world) is, as long as the mind of acquired intelligence exists. No mind, no Jagath! Only Reality exists, which is Supreme-Intelligence.
    Uptill now we have had enough of ‘theory’. From a sadhaks(seekers)’ point of view, there has been a lot of enquiry/search of the Self! For the novice, the real worth of theory/enquiry/research/quest of Self is, of no import if these are not backed with ‘experience’, and more importantly supported with practical demonstration. Even if, all the material that has been placed in the foregone pages, based totally on personal ‘experiences’—the result of twenty years life of rigorous discipline, by dedicating the self at the lotus Feet of the Master, and complete surrender/mergence of the worldly self (knowledge) in the ocean of Supreme- Consciousness—is not going to have ‘instant’ effect on the readers, unless they themselves test its veracity, in the laboratory of their bodies! Not that its veracity is to be tested by those, who are still in the process or have yet to recognize the ‘existence’ of ‘some’ superior Intelligence! The endeavor is to sincerely inspire the deviated souls, who due to some unavoidable circumstances, were simply swayed, like the l.s., with the tempting tides of the western influence.” Amen.
    From here onward the author takes on to sum up, in brief, the case history of the little self before the sadhaks, to decide for themselves, as to whether his endeavors, in the path of Self-relisation, have been worthwhile and worthy of emulation!
    • He is a perfect model of a stereotype of western culture, devoid of human values, living only for sensual pleasures. He is evil and cruel, both in thought and action. Accepts bribes, as he finds no distinction in black or white money! He has no respect for society, religion, culture, law and order, justice or even in the sanctity of relationship. No relations; no values; no qualms of conscience; no taboos and no regard for finer aspects of life. He believes in making money; in self-gratification and in the promotion of his own interests; even if he has to crush others to achieve his ends. In nutshell he is the personification of Satan. If such a Satanic personality can be transformed, and to the surprise of all, supports a life of a Vairaagya (detachment), then definitely he is a good case for study, which would force the elite to pay heed to, since this ‘subject’ once belonged to them
    What about him, does he feel penitence or has some kind of depression?
    But to the surprise of all, I observe him as the happiest man on earth, whereas the ‘dear ones’, though possessing all the means in the world, are spending their time in mental hell! His mental state is worth emulating. He is serene, sublime, contended, supporting an aura of divine vibrations. There is a strange distant ‘look’ in him, which remains focused in his ‘Self’, creating around him the field of love, peace and holy vibrations. He hardly takes notice of his ‘personal self’. I don’t find him a lost man, rather he feels relieved by shedding the burdens of material ‘possessions.’ Nobody realizes that he had joyously gifted all his material possessions to whosoever he thought; he owed some worldly debt still to discharge. Besides he is a strong willed person with an iron shield of self-confidence. The fact was he had ‘himself’ surrendered all his possessions, because he wanted to be free of them. These were irritants in his conscience which he wanted to dump, so as to devote his self in search of true Self. Though living in the world, having ample means at his disposal, he is living a detached life. And that is what he is doing and reveling in. Even in his childhood, it was his cherished dream to be a Sanyaasi, spending his life in meditation. Since childhood he had no attachment with the worldly possessions. At age sixteen and half, having taken all the responsibilities of a joint family, he had to carry the burden of his self-imposed duties. And he served his duties with sincerity and with a smile on his face. Being left alone, without any ‘material luxuries’— to which he was once used to- was in fact the greatest black spot on his conscience! Now he really is truly happy—burden-less and free of worldly shackles. Now, he is ‘himself’ —his real Self. A normal state of being for a normal person! He is not a Sanyaasi(renunciate), in the worldly sense, and still discharges his duties toward his parents, family and his mortal body also. But these are routine, which are not part of his inner-self. I know because “I” live in his body! My divine-link with his self has definitely found in him—his innate nature, a seeker, who revels in “me” and nothing else, gives him the joy of indescribable magnitude, when he is immersed in “My” sublime contemplation! What more a human being can aspire for than peace, contentment, sublime inner beauty and perfect coordination between the senses and the elements, resulting in bringing normalcy in the discharge of the trinity of mind-intellect-wisdom. The end product is—a normal human being with the garland of human values worn around his Self, ready to be subsumed in the Cosmic-Self, the Supreme-Intelligence—ParamAathma. He has found his hearth, but prays for the release of others, from the senseless vagaries of the mind—Samsaar (the phenomenal world) and be their real-Self, which is their innate-nature, as well as that of the Nature.
    And the journey continues...
