What to Expect: The Enlightenment Edition
"When the universe picks you, and you put on the magic glasses there's rules that go with them. You can never take them off... you never see things as they're supposed to be, you see things as they are."
"When I shut my eyes, I still see it (light) shimmering and shining, softer than soft, more tender than tender, finer than fine. When the eyes are open, I see the blue rays all around. Whenever I see anyone, I see first the blue light and then the person. Whenever I see any thing, I see first the beautiful, subtle rays of Consciousness and then the thing itself. Wherever my mind happens to turn, I see the world in the midst of this shining mass of Light. The way I see things, whether large or small, demonstrates the truth of the verses of Tukaram, which I have quoted before: "My eyes have been bathed with the lotion of the blue light, and I have been granted divine vision."
-Muktananda, Play of Consciousness
"When you continually meditate on Divine Mother, you start to see her in everything. You see her in everybody, and people – their faces, bodies, colors and features – simply disappear. The first thing that comes in front of you is the form of Devi. The first layer is Devi, Goddess, Energy, Divinity, whatever name you want to give, and the second layer is light. I see everybody as a light. Then the light disappears, and the third layer that I see is the actual human body. It wasn’t like this before; it’s not that it has been like this since I was born. This experience came about after my intense sadhana in the Himalayas. And the presence of the divine energy of Mother Divine is so real in my life that I really hope by the time you finish this book, that you would walk away with enough inspiration, as well as learning, to manifest the same in your life."
-Om Swami, from The Hidden Power of Gayatri Mantra: How to Realize Your Full Potential Through Daily Practice
WHEN God picks you, don't get so lost in your worldly work and success that you forget Him, your innermost Self. Stay aware of this felt-Love (in and AS the background), while enjoying the world (appearing as the foreground)! Be "in the world but not of it". Write to me and tell me of your enlightening experiences!
I Love you and I'm with you,
