TEMPLE OF THE MIND
Mind is the portal through which the “will” of the universe enters our existence. Through the mind one enters many realms of consciousness and experiences, which are rooted in the movements of the cosmos and all that exist in it. Through it one enters another mind, still another mind, still another another mind and so on. Features of these different realms of the mind remain unknown and hidden to the creatures who evolve with the movements of the world. Mind thus exists in two spheres: One which belongs to the body, which has formed and actively participating in the law-
Every life in the universe is a journey of the “cosmic mind”. The way one seeks to explore the vast wonder, creates the foundation of meanings of one`s life. Vaster the experiences, the more elaborate and colourful the visions of the journey, more rich one`s interactions with the living and the non-
Human life is endowed with higher power of the mind. By using this power one may overcome the drag of the instincts, which are common to all animal life. One may overcome the animal instincts by using creative imaginations and power of reflections which can create higher sensibilities arising from the realm lying outside the basic needs. One may thus connect to a transcendental mind which resides in all human beings. By willing to connect to this higher realm one may access information from different dimensions of existence than what may be available through perceptive methods. This is the way of overcoming the bondage of the physical world and attaining freedom from the law-
Man may transcend to even higher spheres and attain even greater freedom and thus experience a realm, which may appear as “Divine”. More one transcends the physical barriers and the drag of the instincts, more one discovers one`s existence as one with the “Cosmic Being”. This higher awareness becomes the foundation of the “universal love” which brings forth the feeling of unity and harmony with all. The goal of life is thus to seek this unity and experience the “universal love”.
An enlightened life is the one, which sets its goal to these ends and engages in activities of life which may guide and inspire other human beings to follow this path. In an enlightened way one`s happiness lies in walking along such a path and helping others in finding the path.
It is a path of freedom from physical bondage. By moving along this path one asserts the power of the creative mind in overcoming the conditions and situations, which may imprison life in the instinctual bondage. It is a journey of freedom in an “Inner Garden” of beauty, harmony and peace, where one experience realms after realms of “wonder”. It is a journey to know the SELF and reach the “temple of God” within oneself .
