Conștiință, vibrații și ascensiune

Toți acești termeni au fost creați de oameni pentru a delimita nivelul de evoluție la care a ajuns un suflet.

Dintre termenii de mai sus, ascensiunea este singurul termen legate exclusiv de planul fizic.
Capcana în care se poate cădea atunci când se utilizează termenul ascensiune este că aceasta are o conotație în strânsă legătură cu sentimentele din călătoria spirituală. Toate sufletele sunt vrednice și toate sufletele se vor înălța la un moment dat în călătoria lor. Înălțarea nu este mai mult decât ​​creșterea peste nivelul de vibrație vechi al Pământului, sau a 3-a dimensiune.

Când vine vorba de vibrații, aceasta este un termen care descrie densitatea și frecvența din sistemul cuiva. Pentru cei din lumea Spiritului, există diferite nivele de vibrații și toate adaptate la sarcinile și îndatoririle specifice.

În timp ce vibrațiile descriu nivelul fizic de schimbare, conștiința este folosită pentru a descrie cât de mult un suflet și-a curățat propriile probleme emoționale interioare. Nivele de conștiință nu corespund vârstei, culturii sau vreunei zone geografice de pe glob. Vibrațiile și conștiința au o corelație directă, iar atunci când crește conștiința și densitatea în corpul emoțional scade, vibrația se ridică.

Cel mai important lucru este să nu etichetezi pe alții, dar să-ți continui propria ta cale de evoluție. Oriunde călătoria te duce ca un suflet individual, acolo trebuie să fii.

Învățând să recunoști orice teamă sau îndoială din corpul emoțional, ești pe cale de a o șterge complet.
Cel mai important lucru este acela de a nu te judeca pe tine și progresul propriei călătorii.

Zilnice Reflecții - Vivekananda

Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.

Sayings and utterances. Complete Works, 5. 410.

We are in essence one with God. He who is the coloring in the wings of the butterfly, and the blossoming of the rose-bud, is the power that is in the plant and in the butterfly. He who gives us life is the power within us. Out of his fire comes life, and the direst death is also his power. He whose shadow is death, his shadow is immortality also.

From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 338.

I am in God's hands. What is the use of going back to India? India cannot further my ideas. This country takes kindly to my ideas. I will go back when I get the Command. In the meanwhile, all of you should work gently and patiently. If anybody attacks me, simply ignore his existence.

Letter to Alasinga Perumal. From USA:  April 4, 1895. Complete Works, 5. 77.

In point of health, the Westerners are far superior to Indians. In the West, men of forty years and women of fifty years are still young. This is, no doubt, because they take good food, dress well, and live in a good climate, and above all, the secret is that they do not marry at an early age.

From "The East and the West," originally written in Bengali. Complete Works, 5. 466.

There cannot be any such thing as free will. The very words are a contradiction, because will is what we know, and everything that we know is within our universe. Everything within our universe is moulded by the conditions of space, time, and causation. Everything that we know, or can possibly know, must be subject to causation, and that which obeys the law of causation cannot be free.

Class on Karma Yoga. New York, January 10, 1896.Complete Works, 1. 95-96.

Creation is infinite, without beginning and without end, the ever-moving ripple in an infinite lake. There are yet unreached depths and others where the equilibrium has been regained. But the ripple is always progressing, the struggle to regain the balance is eternal.

Retreat given at the Thousand Island Park, USA. June 25, 1895. Complete Works, 7.12-13.

One who is not disturbed by anything material has reached immortality.

Zilnice Reflecții -Vivekananda

It is only when "being" or existence gets moulded into name and form that it obeys the law of causation, and is said to be under law, because all law has its essence in causation.

Class on Karma Yoga. New York, January 10, 1896. Complete Works, 1. 95.

God is still, established upon his own majestic changeless Self. You and I try to be one with him, but we plant ourselves upon nature, upon the trifles of daily life, on money, on fame, on human love, and all these changing forms in nature which make for bondage.

From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 337.

What is dharma? Dharma is that which makes us seek for happiness in this world or the next. Dharma is established on karma, and it impels us day and night to run after and work for happiness.

What is mukti? That which teaches that even the happiness in this life is slavery, and the same is true of the happiness in the life to come, because neither this world nor the next is beyond the laws of nature... Again, happiness, wherever it may be, being within the laws of nature, is subject to death and will not last ad infinitum. So we must aspire to become mukta. We must go beyond the bondage of the body. Slavery will not do.

From "The East and the West," originally written in Bengali. Complete Works, 5. 446.

If in an infinite chain a few links can be explained, by the same method all can be explained.

Zilnice Reflecții - Vivekananda

Life is and must be accompanied by evil. A little evil is the source of life. The little wickedness that is in the world is very good. For, when the balance is regained, the world will end, because sameness and destruction are one. When this world goes, good and evil go with it. When we transcend this world, we get rid of both good and evil, and have bliss.

Retreat given at the Thousand Island Park, USA. June 25, 1895. Complete Works, 7.12.

From notes discovered among Swami Vivekananda's papers. He evidently intended to write a book and jotted down these points for the work. Complete Works, 5. 434.

I hate this world, this dream, this horrible nightmare, with its churches and chicaneries, its books and blackguardism, its fair faces and false hearts, its howling righteousness on the surface and utter hollowness beneath, and, above all, its sanctified shopkeeping.

Letter to Miss Mary Hale. From New York: February 1, 1895. Complete Works, 5. 73.

By law is meant the tendency of a series to repeat itself. When we see one event followed by another, or sometimes happening simultaneously with another, we expect this sequence of coexistence to recur.

Class on Karma Yoga. New York, January 10, 1896. Complete Works, 1.94. Swamiji is here referring to laws of nature.

Be not like certain fisher-women who, caught in a storm on their way home from market, took refuge in the house of florist. They were lodged for the night in a room next to the garden, where the air was full of the fragrance of flowers. In vain did they try to rest, until one of them suggested that they wet their fishy baskets and place them near their heads. Then they all fell into a sound sleep.
The world is our fish basket, we must not depend upon it for enjoyment.

Retreat given at the Thousand Island Park, USA. June 25, 1895. Complete Works, 7.12.

You cannot teach a child any more than you can grow a plant. All you can do is on the negative side--you can only help. It is a manifestation from within; the child develops its own nature--you can only take away obstructions.

Sayings and utterances. Complete Works, 5. 410.

You are babies, and babies must submit to be taught. You have not yet drunk of that fountain which makes "reason unreason, mortal immortal, this world a zero, and of human being a God." Come out if you can of this network of foolishness they call this world. Then I will call you indeed brave and free. If you cannot, cheer those that dare dash this false God, society, onto the earth and trample on its unmitigated hypocrisy; if you cannot cheer them, pray, be silent, but do not try to drag them down again into the mire with such false nonsense as compromise and becoming nice and sweet.

Freedom - If something exists, it must be possible!

Blessedness, eternal peace, arising from perfect freedom, is the highest concept of religion underlying all the ideas of God in Vedanta--absolutely free existence, not bound by anything. ... This same freedom is in you and in me and is the only real freedom.

Vivekananda - From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 337.

Freedom is the motive of the universe, freedom its goal. The laws of nature are the methods through which we are struggling to reach that freedom, under the guidance of Mother. This universal struggle for freedom attains its highest expression in our conscious desire to be free.

From notes discovered among Swami Vivekananda's papers. He evidently intended to write a book and jotted down these points for the work. Complete Works, 5. 434.

"Freedom, O Freedom! Freedom, O Freedom!" is the song of the soul. Bondage, alas, or to be bound in nature, seems its fate.

Vivekananda - From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 335.

"Dependence is misery. Independence is happiness." Advaita is the only system that gives us complete control over ourselves, takes off all dependence and its associated superstitions, thus making us brave to suffer, brave to do, and in the long run, attain to absolute freedom.

Written by Swami Vivekananda in March 1899, to be included in the prospectus of the Advaita Ashrama at Mayavati in the Himalayas. Complete Works, 5. 435-36.

The whole of nature is worship of God. Wherever there is life, there is the search for freedom--and this freedom is the same as God.

Vivekananda - From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 337.

The embodiment of freedom, the Master of nature, is what we call God. You cannot deny God, because you cannot move or live without the idea of freedom.

Vivekananda - From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 336.

In whom is the universe, who is in the universe, who is the universe; in whom is the soul, who is in the soul, who is the soul; knowing that Truth--and therefore the universe--as our Self, alone extinguishes all fear, brings an end to misery, and leads to infinite freedom.

Harmony and peace! ... Let things slowly grow. 
Rome was not built in a day.

Letter to Alasinga. From New York: March 6, 1895. Complete Works, 5.75.

The more we know, the more we become masters of nature. Mastery alone makes us strong and if there is some being who is entirely free and master of nature, that being must have a perfect knowledge of nature. That being must be omnipresent and omniscient.

From a lecture on "What Is Religion?". Complete Works, 1. 337

Creation is not a "making" of something. It is the struggle to regain the equilibrium, as when atoms of cork are thrown to the bottom of a pail of water and rush to rise to the top, singly or in clusters.

Retreat given at the Thousand Island Park, USA. June 25, 1895. Complete Works, 7.12.

With every person, there is an idea. The external person is only the outward manifestation, the mere language of this idea within. Likewise, every nation has a corresponding national idea. The idea is working for the world and is necessary for its preservation. The day when the necessity of an idea as an element for the preservation of the world is over, that very day the receptacle of that idea, whether it be an individual or a nation, will meet destruction.

From "The East and the West," originally written in Bengali. Complete Works, 5. 443

Namaste

 "I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one." Ram Dass

"We can remain in a state of love when we recognize that everyone is doing the best they can to get their needs met."   Eckhart Tolle

Nature


"Once we have a firm practice of compassion our state of mind becomes stronger which leads to inner peace, giving rise to self-confidence, which reduces fear. This makes for constructive members of the community. Self-centredness on the other hand leads to distance, suspicion, mistrust and loneliness, with unhappiness as the result."  Dalai Lama

The reason that we Indians are still living, in spite of so much misery, distress, poverty, and oppression from within and without is that we have a national idea, which is yet necessary for preservation of the world. The Europeans too have a national idea of their own, without which the world will not go on; therefore they are so strong.


Vivekananda -  From "The East and the West," originally written in Bengali. Complete Works, 5. 443-44.
