255. Charisma in Realising SELF and becoming THAT……..

Self is the only intimate and eternal being and everything else is distant. While the latter requires some efforts to be obtained the former is readily accessible. To obtain all the other distant things mind is required but the Self is realized only when the mind is transcended. How can we transcend the mind which is the faculty of cognizing?????? Is it possible to go beyond mind????
Self is realized with Manonasha. When mind is devoid of thoughts and has nowhere to go it automatically turns inward. Then the mind sees its own source and becomes THAT (Self). It is not as the subject perceiving an object but it becomes un-objectivable subject. In a dark place a lamp is necessary to illumine so that we can see the objects, but to see the lamp there is no need of another lamp as the lamp itself is self-luminous. In the same way to look at objects outside reflected light of the mind is necessary but to see the Self it is enough that the mind turns towards it. Then mind loses itself and Self shines forth. This is Manonasha. 

The fundamental nature of mind is only to make us aware. Unfortunately if Ego dominates over it then the mind does multi-tasking like reasoning, thinking, sensing, or judging. If that Ego is subdued then one can have the mind as only pure Consciousness. Many people in spirituality often want to know the tricks of controlling the mind. One can only say that the mind is just a bundle of thoughts having its support from Ego. 

Is it possible to destroy the thoughts????? No, Thoughts are essential part of the mind. The mind projects thoughts like a continuous flow of oil. Hence it would be foolishness to attempt to reduce the thoughts with the help of mind. It is like asking the thief to help catch a thief who is his friend. He will just pretend as if he is on the job but does not do anything. So one must turn the mind inward and see from where the thoughts are arises and then it will cease to exist. The only way of doing it to find its source and hold on to it. The mind then fades away on its own and has the realization of the un-manifested illuminating SELF and this is NIRGUNA UPASANA.

What if one is unable to go inward and get to the source of the thought?????? Is there no realization for them then?????? If one is unable to go inward then, there is no point in pretending to have realized the Self or relating the hallucinations to have realized the Self and convince others and confuse individual self. There is always the manifested Absolute outside the individual. If one tries to focus the mind on the manifested Absolute even for a fraction of a second with all the concentration then realization takes place and the illuminating Absolute is experienced. This is SAGUNA UPASANA.

THAT may be in the Center of Hridya Guha as Nirguna or Everywhere else as Saguna......

In either mode of realization the SELF the individual becomes THAT ….. If observed in both the cases it is the 
MIND that is the central part, so please let the MIND free from EGO that is the gateway for REALIZATION………..This is my feeling ............ am i Right????????????
