Praise and Thanksgiving 17
Thank You Aum. Thank You Ra. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Ra. Thank You Gayatri.
Aum Tat Sat. Aum Ra. Namo Namaha.
We think of negative sense impressions as those remembrances of
sense association which contaminate the thoughts with desires that
poison the consciousness with anger, lust, and greed. Those kind of
thoughts drag the consciousness away from union with You and
drop It into the ever bottomless pit of Maya.
Association brings assimilation for the purification and raising of our consciousness.
We are now on the spiritual platform. The consciousness continues to expand
because we are purifying the Pineal Gland by always associating with You
who are the Eternal, Infinite, Beloved.
Gradually, our consciousness is cleansed of anger, lust, and
greed. We see how to get out and stay out of Maya, our
negative predicament. The solution, the way out of Maya, is
to always think of You.
In the Spirit of this One, our Eternal, Omnipotent, Omnipresent,
Divine, Gye Nyame, whom we think of as pervading and transcending
the Infinite Cosmic Manifestations, eternally, we greet You in, and
as, Everlasting, Omnipresent, Blissful Peace. This is our original
position, our primeval nature, our Home. This is where we really belong.
It is an undeniable fact that can be experienced, we are not a human trying to have Divine
Realization. We are Divine eings having fallen into an illusory, universal suffering
situation called Maya.
Constant remembrance of You is is cleaning our consciousness of the contamination of
illusory identification. This spiritual practice is definitely lifting us out of Maya, and
reawakening us to the barely describable, Tranquil Bliss of the Self.
Doing comes from willing. Willing comes out of feeling. Feeling comes from thought.
thought. Thought comes out of consciousness, after coming in through the influence of the
memory of various combinations of sense impressions. Association with You, by always
thinking of You, purifies our consciousness and strengthens It against the entrance and
influence of those negative, unhealthy, sense impressions.
You are our Highest, the Most Present Consciousness. To the degree we resurrect
ourselves to our original consciousness, our equanimity is revived. Gradually, we
return to stillness and experience the reality, You.
As we regain our original awareness, we are able to remain the same in the face of
loss or gain, pleasure or pain, and other repulsions, attractions and attachments of
the dual worlds of illusory energy.
Thank You for accepting this humble offering. This spiritual
practice helps us remember You, turn to You and be saved.
To be saved means to redeem our awareness from the illusory
hells of repeated birth, death, and rebirth, Maya.
We are living as the soul with a body not a body with a soul.
The body, mind, intelligence, and ego have their temporary
illusory existence within You, the Supreme Awareness, the
Transpersonal Super Self, Pure Awareness.
The major psychological impairment at the root of our
spiritual pathology is the belief that the self is a material,
mental, intellectual, or ego entity. It is an illusion, a disease,
The real Self or Awareness is beyond description but not beyond
experience. Surely, It pervades and transcends all, including
everything, nothing, and transcendence.
Persistence in this Sadhana, spiritual practice, give us
glimpses of Your awesome magnificence and makes us ever
stronger in our patience and determination to realize You
constantly, here, now, in this moment.
This Eternal, Pure Energy, or Awareness, this Field of
Infinite Awareness which pervades and transcends all
consciousness, Stillness, and all states of Being, is the
Supreme Awareness, God.
We generally call this Eternal Energy the Soul, Spirit, or
Energy. Ultimately, It is only You, the Source. We also call
You the Eternal, Super Soul or Supreme Awareness of all.
As we transcend Maya by always thinking of You, we
simultaneously return back to Home. Our original life of
Eternal Bliss is Home. It is here in Eternity, Now.
