    needed is consciousness Without this everything is a barren desert When we enter into a dark place we take a flashlight or some other light in order to know where we are going If we want to know about our unlit life we have to take the help of consciousness Man in his outer life or his outer achievements is very limited But the same man when he enters into the inmost recesses of his heart feels that there is something which is constantly trying to expand itself This is consciousness This consciousness links him with the highest Absolute Consciousness is our real teacher our dear friend and our sure slave As a slave consciousness carries our teeming ignorance to God As a friend consciousness tells us what the supreme Knowledge is As a teacher consciousness reveals to us the undeniable truth that today s imperfect and unfulfilled man is tomorrow s perfect and fulfilled God Consciousness sings It sings the song of universal Oneness Consciousness plays It plays the game of cosmic Manifestation Consciousness dances It dances with God s fulfilling Vision within and God s fulfilled Reality without Consciousness acts It acts through man s crying climbing and surrendering aspiration and God s descending protecting and illumining Compassion When consciousness is all activity it bows to God the Mother its Source When consciousness is all silence it bows to God the Father its Source From the Mother it gets the mightiest Power to make the supreme sacrifice for the unconscious earth From the Father it gets the highest Light to illumine the unlit earth Consciousness itself is at once Light and Power As Light it identifies with the pure inspiration and deep aspiration of our inner world As Power it exercises its divine sovereignty over the darkest bondage

    is always connected with the soul But what we in the human life call consciousness is not real consciousness at all it is a mere feeling When we perceive something subtle which we cannot define we call this awareness of ours consciousness this is actually not real consciousness at all It is rather very subtle desire We enter into it and immediately we feel that it is our consciousness But real consciousness is the Light which connects Heaven and earth Heaven itself is in our consciousness Consciousness and the soul can never be separated whereas the body can easily be separated from the soul and also from consciousness When we use the term physical consciousness we are referring to the finite consciousness It is a portion of the infinite Consciousness which has entered into the gross physical and is now possessed and utilised by the physical itself The same can also occur with the vital consciousness and the mental consciousness But the divine consciousness is a vast unity which houses silence and power When it houses silence it houses its own true form When it houses power it manifests its inner reality The soul which is eternal and consciousness which

  • Human Consciousness | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    consciousness feels there is nothing more important than earthly pleasure Divine consciousness feels there is nothing more important and significant than heavenly Joy and Bliss on earth Human consciousness tries to convince us that we are nowhere near Truth or fulfilment It tries to make us feel that God is somewhere else millions of miles away from us But divine consciousness makes us feel that God is right here inside each life breath inside each heartbeat inside everyone and everything around us Human consciousness makes us feel that we can exist without God When it is in deep ignorance human consciousness feels that there is no necessity for God We see millions and billions of people who do not pray or meditate They feel If God exists well and good if He does not exist we don t lose anything Although they may use the term God in season and out of season they do not care for the reality the existence of God either in Heaven or in their day to day earthly lives But the divine consciousness is not at all like that Even the limited divine consciousness that we have makes us feel that at every moment there is a supreme necessity for God It makes us feel that we are on earth precisely because He exists And when we cherish divine thoughts the divine consciousness makes us feel it is He who is inspiring us to cherish these divine ideas In everything the divine consciousness makes us feel there is a divine purpose divine aim divine ideal divine goal In ordinary human consciousness there is no purpose no positive goal it is only a mad elephant running amuck In the divine consciousness there is always a goal and this goal is always transcending itself Today we

  • Karma | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    get caught today but one day I will be caught And if I do something good if I pray if I meditate and do divine things I will get the result of this also Sometimes we see someone who has done something wrong enjoying the world But perhaps he did something extraordinary something wonderful in his immediate past incarnation and now he is having the result of his good action while the results of his bad deeds have not yet started to bear fruit In the evening of his life or in a future life he will definitely be punished In the case of an ordinary unaspiring person karmic dispensation is unavoidable inevitable The law of karma is always binding like a snake it will coil around him He has to pay the toll the tax the law of karma is merciless But again there is something called Divine Grace I was ignorant and I did a few things wrong But if I shed bitter tears and cry for forgiveness then naturally God s Compassion will dawn on me When a person enters into the spiritual life his karma can easily be nullified if it is the Will of God operating through a spiritual Master Slowly God s infinite Grace can nullify the results of his bad karma and expedite the results of his good karma If a seeker not only wants the spiritual life but also sincerely practises the spiritual life every day then he can stand above the law of karma for God is bound to shower His boundless Grace on the devoted head and heart of the aspirant Of course I cannot go on doing some undivine thing and feel that God will always forgive me No But if God sees a soulful cry looming large from

  • The Purpose of Reincarnation | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    cannot do everything If we remain in the world of desire we will never be able to fulfil ourselves As a child we have millions of desires and even when we reach the age of seventy we see that a particular desire has not been fulfilled and we feel miserable The more desires we fulfil the more desires we get We want one house then two houses one car then two cars and so forth There is no limit to it When our desires are fulfilled we find that we are still dissatisfied Then we become the victims of other desires or larger desires Now our dearest is God Do you think that God will allow us to remain unfulfilled No God s very purpose is to fulfil each individual and Himself through us He will have us come back again and again to fulfil our desires If someone is eager to become a millionaire in this incarnation and at the end of his journey he sees that he has not become a millionaire then if his desire is really intense he will have to keep coming back until he really becomes a millionaire But by becoming a millionaire he

  • The Soul's Experiences After Death | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Reincarnation The Soul s Experiences After Death About the soul s experiences after death Question Will the soul be able to have some kinds of experiences in the worlds it goes to after it leaves the body Sri Chinmoy As soon as the soul leaves this physical body the physical body will be dissolved in matter The body enters into the physical sheath the vital enters into the vital sheath and the mind enters into the mental plane proper The soul will go through the subtle physical the vital the mental the psychic and then finally to the soul s own region As it passes through each of these planes the soul takes up with it the essence of all the experiences it had on earth The soul gets various kinds of subtle experiences in these other sheaths but these experiences are not going to manifest in these worlds If the soul gets some experience here on earth the experience is bound to be manifested either today or tomorrow The soul can aspire in any world In the higher worlds it will have only aspiration and this aspiration will eventually take the form of experience Aspiration itself is an experience
