Essence of Spirituality

Jay Baba Huuuuuuuuuuu……. see what i got today!

“….People use a lot of fancy words and expressions to describe God or God-consciousness.
Avatar. Paramatman. The Beyond Beyond. The Infinite Ocean of Divine Bliss. Samadhi. etc. etc.

The Buddha never used the word God, and many people consider Buddhism to be a philosophy
rather than a Religion. Yet Baba calls Him one of the Avatars.
The Buddha refers to The Oneness or just Oneness, and this seems to me like the essence of
Spirituality……….finding / experiencing this Oneness. The fancy names just seem like an unnecessary complication and distraction. Truth is usually simple or elegant, and the more profound the truth, the more simple and elegant……….E = mC2.

The idea that only God is real is better expressed as only Oneness is real….and separateness is
just a delusion of the senses and rational mind. To me, and most people, the word God always
suggests some sort of Divine Being, and probably a very judgmental one, to be feared or adored.
How can you fear or adore Oneness ?

Truth is abstract, but most people cannot comprehend abstractions so we ‘personalize’ God.
If we accept that the purpose of life is to find / experience this Oneness (God), and thus free
ourselves from the manyness-separateness of Duality, then the obvious question is where do we find this Oneness ? And the very simple, non-mystical / spiritual / religious answer is……… in the heart. In fact, the heart is this Oneness, when you manage to remove all the crap that obscures the heart such as emotion………which has it’s origin as ego-mind thought.

The truth is not arcane or esoteric. It’s extremely simple………..or that’s what I firmly believe. In His Infinite Grace………may He awaken us from our dreaming / imagining !!!!!!!”

The ‘cost’ of ‘getting God’!

And this is the ‘cost’ of ‘happiness = getting God = Truth’:

“Why should you not be happy? What need binds you to unhappiness? Binding is self-created. It can be overcome if you really want to become free, you are your own obstacle to freedom, and merely wishing for freedom is not enough. It is not what you think or say that matters, but what you sincerely feel within. If you want God, you must want God alone. It is possible to get God, if you want to experience Truth. And what is the cost? Your own separate existence. When you surrender all falseness, you inherit the Truth that you really are.”

the ‘entire universe’ WITHIN us….

Jay Baba… speaking of the planets and the ‘entire universe’ in the previous post, see what i just found and typed! (from The Avatar, vol.5, 5th November 1985, no.5)

“You have within you, Self the Paramatman_ the planes, the planets,
and the entire universe,
but you do not know it.
They are within you, but you do not see them there;
because you only see without, and not the REAL self, within,”
