Let’s look at the practical side to a lofty teaching;
When the power of God contracts, She becomes the limited individual, subject to innumerable births and deaths. She remains a transmigratory soul as long as She is contracted, but once She expands, She becomes God.
The practical side:
From the practical point of view, when we live in a contracted state of awareness, in the pairs of opposites filled with resistance, we suffer. When we live with desires that are attached to outcomes and live with aversions, we suffer. This is the result of the state of experiencing the delusion that we are separate, limited individuals, that we are our bodies and thoughts.
So how do we expand back to our original true Self, our Godhead? We start by accepting ‘what is’ and relaxing our attachments and aversions. We hold them easier, less rigidly, eventually letting them go. Our judgments, justifications and stances are what hold them rigidly. Our acceptance allows us to let them go. And most of all, our meditation allows us to find some peace of mind and moments of true expansion back to our original Godhead. Let peace of mind and kindness be our standard for what we say and do. It’s simple but not easy.
