After one of my meditation sessions I had once told my beloved disciple friend.. “If you want to experience something deeper, divine and transforming your mind should be able to indulge in synthesis.. and when I am saying synthesis it does not merely mean putting different pieces together. Synthesis is much more than this.. ”
Although he nodded in affirmatively but I know for sure he had not understood that. Since that time I wanted to destroy the false feeling of understanding in him.. I knew what he understood is not what I meant so I have decided to elaborate on that. Actually mind’s function is to split, to divide, to create grades, shades and hues.. mind can not do real synthesis ever if it is not meditative.
Now the question comes what is meditative mind? The meditative mind is roughly the state of ‘Dhaarna’ in classical yogic term. A stage which is achieved after perfecting the ‘Praanaayaama’. The authentic Vedic Yoga system is a eight-fold path starting at Yama, Niayama… culminating in the state of Samadhi. First four steps are done and are in our control. It means Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama are the four steps which require your effort. You can do something about it.. you can exercise control over these. These fall in the domain of your ‘doing’.
The last four steps are the fruits of your perfection of the previous ones that happen on their own accord. You can not do much about these.. in fact you can not do anything about these. Just like a gardener you choose, cure and prepare the piece of land properly. You till the land, sow the seeds.. water them and then only thing you can do is allowing the seeds to sprout. Once sprouted protect the tiny plants and allow them to grow. Once it has grown up you will have to just patiently wait.. Then the season arrives.. it flowers and you get the fruits too.
The meditative mind is the state where buds have arrived.. some of them have opened up a bit and you are able to feel the aroma around. No proof is needed that fruits are not far away in the time. When you have gained control over prana and thereby the Brownian, zig-zag motion of your mind your mind starts disappearing.. it no more functions from one of its halves. The left and right are balanced and connected. The ida-pingala are open.. the chakras or emotional centers are redeemed and the sushumna takes birth. Actually activation of sushumna in medical or psychological terms can be defined as a state of your mind when functional brain.. its both the lobes are free of residual irritations and accumulations, your logical and creative faculties are bundled together and thus a new vision is born.. But mind you! It is not 1/2 + 1/2 = 1 it is much more than this now.
In this state of flowering you are able to see things wholly, completely and your mind is now in synthesis mode. It is no more getting irked or agitated by assimilating the fodder it was earlier savoring on.. It is no more engaged in splitting a phenomenon in good or bad.. a state that is not falling in the domain of pain and pleasure.. you are aware but no more discriminating. Surprisingly you are wiser than before. You will still make choices and choose the best option for yourself out of many presented to you but now you would know that you have done it without actively thinking, mulling or analyzing about it. So the knowledge dies and intuitive wisdom is born. Aha!
In this state your sense of being a thinker or doer dies. You become a flute through which winds of existence flow and a divine melody is played on its own. It is such a beautiful state.. blissful.. much more special and euphoric that the state of mind when you fell in love for the first time in life. Now you fall in love with the existence.. your beloved is everywhere.. He is embracing you from all the sides.. touching you.. playing with you in so many forms and in so many ways. The feeling is like constant union with the divinity in you. Wow!
I have explained.. elaborated it but still I must say it can’t be understood just through my words. Howsoever good words I use, elaboration I make.. you have to indulge in it if you want to experience this divine orgasm. So?
Come, learn the art and science of unending intercourse with the divine.
Love and Light
