"The purpose of each soul's sojourn on earth is to learn to see beyond the evanescence of phenomena to the Eternal Reality. " Paramahansa Yogananda
One of the reasons I like to share this quote today is to offer a reminder of what is possible when we awaken into the realm of possibility. Pure Potential.
Allowing for this divine engagement with our Soul opens us up to the world of Realization.
It is one thing to experience a temporary blast of insight or an instant awareness of "there is something greater." That's the beginning. The questions begin from there.
How can I feel this feeling more at will? Is it ONLY grace or can I (ego) actually participate in a more meaningful way with this Cosmic Intelligence on a more regular basis?
With these questions, we can begin to explore consciousness in the formless realm, the Eternal Reality. The truth of which is that we do create and co-create our world. Material and subtle variations in the vibrations of our thoughts affect change.
When we can still the mind and calm the body, we begin to field thoughts volleyed into our mind by the Soul itself and by the Infinite, Itself.
The Eternal Reality is ever new bliss; Ever new Joy.
The word learn in the quote above implies a practice of some kind which helps us to remember who and what we are. Once we remember, the art is doing whatever brings you bliss in an effort to stay awake.
As 13th-century Mystic poet Rumi said, "Don't Go Back to Sleep."
