Concepts , Concepts , Concepts..
Shall we banish them for a while ?

Is there any Joy in any Concept ?
Do they not keep us bound
In the realm of words ?

Do we need to know
The chemical formula
Before tasting  sugar ??

“Atmanam viddhi-Know thyself. Each individual has to know himself. He has to know himself as the infinite, eternal and immortal
Consciousness. The concept of Infinity, Eternity and Immortality is
absolutely foreign to us. Why? The reason is quite simple. We live in
the body, rather than in the soul. To us the body is everything. There
is nothing and can be nothing beyond the body. The existence of the
soul we consider sheer imagination. But I assure you that the soul is
not imaginary. It is at once the life and the revelation of the Cosmic
Reality. Most of us live in the body, in the earthbound physical
consciousness. Our teacher is Darkness; our professor is Ignorance. But if ever we live in the soul, we shall see that our teacher is Vision
and our professor is Illumination.

“Life is effort.” So says the body. “Life is blessing.” So says the
soul. The human in man does not want to go beyond morality, society and humanity. The divine in man comes down from divinity into humanity, from unity into multiplicity.

Atmanam viddhi. Know thyself. The seers of the Upanishads not only
discovered this Truth Transcendental but offered it to the suffering,
crying and striving mankind. In order to know oneself, one has to
discover oneself first. What is self discovery? Self discovery is
God-Realisation.”

“The divine manifestation is governed by a certain rhythm, which is present even in the minutest atom. This state of being knows no antitheses, it casts no shadows, and always brings forth itself. Good is not set against evil, nor beauty against ugliness, nor love against hatred, nor reality against delusion. The Gnosis does not have love; it does not radiate love; it IS love.”

– Jan van Rijckenborgh [The Chinese Gnosis ]
