Mystics, all over the world, say that you are not going to see God as you see other human beings. You have to die, only after that you could see him. And the mystic who experienced is still living!
So how could he managed to live also and experience the Philosia moment? Even if you experience it, then how you are going to recognise it? because you could not recognise what is not your experience.
Let us consider the metaphor of Fibre Optic Cable as human being. In our childhood as newly connected Fibre Optic Cable, we were emitting the inner light as it is available the other end ie God. So every child lives like a King lives means it becomes part of his experience to live in the Kingdom of God.
Then over time due to growing up in a society the dust on this end gets deposited and continuity of inner light stops and only in some ’aha’ moments we get a glimpse of it. So the mind creates pseudo light (ego) and you are projected as hero on its screen. So this way we remain connected with God or our Kingdom of God and keep enjoying material life too.
It is like a situation when we have kept milk pot on the burner to boil it and forgot to look after it by being engaged in other jobs or game etc.
It is one of the prime responsibility ( for embarking upon personal inner journey) of every human being to ‘recognise and get rid of necessary evil’ dumped on him by the society to make him worldly wise. This is called as conditioning.
While living in the society and raising kids etc we need to remain connected to the inner light, through meditation may be dim light, while being involved in outside world.
The moment your meditation (no-mind state) becomes so intense that the screen on which the mind was projecting goes blank and with that the ‘ego’ on the screen acting as a hero also dies. In that moment the light from the source common to all of us (God, Tao) starts falling on the screen and you experience what you have lived in your childhood already!
You immediately recognise it and this is what becomes Philosia moment of your life. You get surprised on how you lost it?
The Fibre Optic Cable has again started projecting light from the common source of all, on the screen and the Reality reveals itself to you.
It was ready always to let it happen but we were busy elsewhere. Our desires to enjoy life and show to others as smarter or wiser or richer hinders it.
The love gets converted to compassion immediately. This is real compassion because you now know what great treasure others are missing and not ready to listen to you too. The feeling of helplessness coupled with compassion is real compassion.
Hi ….. I write my comments from my personal experiences of my inner journey. This post may include teachings of Mystics around the world that I found worth following even today. For more about me and to connect with me on social media platforms, have a look at my linktree website for connecting with my social media links, or subscribe my YouTube channel and/or listen to the podcasts etc.
I begun with a simple awareness meditation and Zen meditation. You can begin with your choice of meditation or prayer according to your religion or choice today itself, because by procrastinating and postponing we have already lost a big part of our life. By practicing awareness meditation, living simple &authentic life and doing your job in hand to your best – you create favourable situations for growth of the seed within into a tree of consciousness.
