The path of self-realisation (Japji saheb course ad-2)

Man lives in anguish — with a certain deep feeling of becoming something. As he is, he feels he is incomplete. This feeling is the root cause of all our misery. We spend our whole life trying to become something that we are not and what we should be. We do all kinds of things to reach somewhere that we assume is our goal. This goal has nothing to do with our inner reality because this goal does not originate out of our understanding of reality, what we are and what we are supposed to be.

This goal originates out of our confusion and tension. In reality, we are the seed which needs to become a flower, we are supposed to become what we are in our essence or potentiality. In that sense we are already what we are essentially, in our potential. We are perfect as we are, because we originate from the whole.

The Upanishads declare:

Om Purnamidah Purnamidam Purnath Purnamudachyate. Purnasya Purnamadaya Purnamevava shisyate.

It means: This is the whole. That is the whole.

From the whole springs the whole. Take the whole from the whole and only the whole remains. Mediation on this sutra can liberate us from all our anguish and misery and can lead us to the path of self-realisation and bliss.

There are two types of creators in the world.

One type of creator works with objects — a poet, a painter, they work with objects, they create things. (Referred to we humans & Other living beings).

The other type of creator, the mystic, creates himself (Referred to lord)

He doesn’t work with objects, he works with the subject; he works on himself, his own being.

And he is the real creator, the real poet,because he makes himself into a masterpiece.

You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed. Everyone is a masterpiece, because God never gives birth to anything less than that.

Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, not knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.

“Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realise it. God himself has created you; you cannot be improved.”

Get a chance to realize that masterpiece inside you.

Get enlightened.
