The science to convert the microcosmic stance into the macrocosmic is spiritual practice. Are the unit consciousness and the Supreme Consciousness two separate entities? No, they are not. But as long as the unit consciousness is under bondage, it moves around in the cosmic cycle of creation due to the play of life and death of the microcosm.
When the objective mind, through constant sadhana, exhausts all its acquired reactive momenta, it becomes one with Supreme Consciousness. In fact, the only factors separating the jivatma from Paramatma are samskaras, reactive moments and upadhi, extra qualification. Paramatma is the only unchangeable entity.
Satya is that which undergoes no metamorphosis with changes in time, space and person. Every finite object is continually changing, but Brahmn, Satya, is infinite, continuous and eternal, and is above all spatial, temporal and personal differences. Through sadhana, we will have to rise above these differences and establish ourselves in the realm of supreme veracity.
When we cease to take finite entities as our mental object, and direct our entire psychic potentialities towards Parama Brahmn, then we could attain such an exalted mental state, that we are unable to hear or feel anything. Non-discriminatory knowledge is indispensable, in order to attain the Supreme Stance.
Any action, whether for self-preservation or spiritual practice, is not possible without Divine grace. But this does not come automatically – to merit it, we must perform virtuous deeds. Only simple, beautiful and unblemished actions can invite blissful Grace to spiritual aspirants. In our daily lives we notice that a mother often gives some toys or food to her child before she attends to her household duties. After playing with its toys for a while, the child suddenly remembers its mother and cries out loud to attract her attention. She may still be very busy, but when she hears her child crying she stops whatever she’s doing and finds out what’s wrong. To stop her child crying she may give some more toys. But if it continues to demand the mother’s presence she is compelled to keep it on her lap and gently caress it.
Similarly, when a sadhaka ardently calls out to Parama Purusha, His attention is drawn to the sadhaka; and by His grace the sadhaka will attain liberation. Parama Purusha is non-discriminating – He makes no distinction between the virtuous and the sinful. It’s only society that discriminates between the two. The concepts of virtue and vice originate in the human mind. Due to the influence of certain propensities, the notion of vice occurs in the mind, causing people to commit acts of sin in the external world. As soon as the influence of those negative propensities is removed from the mind, many pious thoughts arise in the mind. When so-called sinners earnestly call the Supreme One and surrender themselves out of devotion, they no longer remain sinners. By the grace of merciful Parama Purusha they rise much higher than ordinary people.
