When I Met Me

The World views the mind as the representation of the embodied self. Somehow I always felt that it is what we "think" we are and not how we "feel" we are. For a long time, I had an aversion to a nameplate with a degree or a visiting card with my designation. The fascination of inscribing something that I earned by the virtue of being true to the conditioned mind didn’t quite go down as a true representation of the real "me".

I am sure many of us felt at some point or the other, that we were playing it for the sake of personal reasons. We have had fleeting moments of being in the arms of comfort, but when the call for providing for the family came, we responded selflessly.  As the gong bell of the society sounded our commitment to modern slavery was heard, and we took the call.

We could not dig into the depths of reality for the fear of losing the hard earned money that our parents sent us to school for. The felt the fear of losing the ability to lean on a corporate entity to pay our bills.

We were ingrained with the notion of inadequacy, insufficiency, and poverty, and then the knowledge of the world preceded all understanding. It's like as if the auction began even before the seller was ready to sell.  

I never saw a four-year-old go to school with a smiling face. It’s as if a free being was forced into the drudgery of our modern society and we are directly or indirectly responsible for it.

We got used to living on the surface of shiny niceties that merely gave us a first-class seat on our standard of living, but also therein lies the mundane self of being bored of it all.

The freedom of existence is a built-in mechanism for this universe. All things that appear to the naked eye and those that are hidden work together harmoniously. 

The wisdom of Solomon once spoke

"It is God's privilege to conceal things and the King's privilege to discover them"

To me, the world seemed like a pointless gyration of mass and evil at the beginning.  But then in my mind, it was made clear that it was not so when I decided to get into the center of the circle. 

Living life in the center of a circle has a very different view than the living on the edge. The things, circumstances, people all seem to look different, in a nice way. I began to realize our own essence in the grand scheme of things. However minuscule that I may seem to look in relation to the universe, I felt oneness with it.

The nature of duality and time doesn’t seem to exist anymore. I began to see the real "truth" for myself. Not that which was taught but that which is endorsed by my own empirical evidence. Concepts and beliefs will have no place in this place. We begin to feel what we are already blessed with. We begin to see the paper behind the print, read between words. We recognize the space and the formless of it where all things were born before time began. The stateless state where everything starts and ends. We begin to be the "being" in the present.

The trouble is how to get there? All this seems too good to be true. We love being what we are meant for, but to get there seems to be a real toil.  When "I met me", I have found that the decision to turn my focus inward was most important.  That decision was the most important tool to get to the place we are meant to be.

The mind transcends and ultimately lets go of its material hold. The light of the real "me" shines, and the masquerade of "I" ceases to exist. The true being emerges, challenging our conformity.  The decision to let go our belief system, our past experiences and intricate planning tends to be the most difficult thing, but in reality, it is only the fear of not knowing what to expect. When we know that the endpoint is nothing but the true self, the fear disappears and we will be doubtless of the outcome.  In fact, I am thankful for our modern society and its perils that drove me to turn the lights on inside and feel the presence of my real self. The Global collective consciousness is awakening to the reality and I can see this happening already in different pockets.  At the dawn of a new Yuga, probably the shift in this consciousness is taking place, if that is so then we are looking at a bright new world shining in the Glory of itself.
