Feeling Cosmic Waves…

The other day i was practising an asana that i just couldn’t wrap my head around, so I went to the resource i always goto to shed some light, Light on Yoga by BKS Iyengar and whala the page i opened was exactly the asana i was practicing, it never fails to surprise me and delight me when these amazing coincidences happen, somehow as if something divine has shone on my present moment to inspire the next.  Thus i carried on practicing with this touch of inspiration, not so much for the asana anymore, but more touched by this flow…

There comes a moment on one’s path when one is confronted with an idea of Absolute expansion, Nirvana or Samadhi, from the human perspective, that is these idea’s are out there, and we are here.  However as my path continuously seems to throw more and more coincidences and raises a never ending flow of answers and questions,  that seems to draw me closer to this wonder of these states of being.  Satprem who studied with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother states that the divine light comes in varying degree’s, not so much as a never-ending sea of enlightenement but as varying degress of consciousness, or higher reason’s of understanding.   We, humans, like to fit things into our own forms of understanding somehow negating others, however it seems as though these realms of understanding are received according to what gives one joy “The mystic recieves joy, mathitician, mathematical joy, the painter receives coloured revelations – and all are spiritual joys… If we (however) do not persue personal forms but simply and increasing higher truth, letting it manifest under any form It chooses, we will then keep away from error or superstition” – Satprem

Bringing me to my early morning meditation.  This particular morning, i was on the ground floor, between mind an body.  My mind chatting, my body quite quiet but my spirit yearning for some higher experience and then finally letting go of this yearning and then it came… a moment of light and then the light seemed to move like subtle waves… They came with feelings, i felt these waves through my body, my breath all of sudden became circular, the lights moved very slow… but moved like waves… It was subtle, lovely and an absolute true experience.

Not a few moments later, I left my meditation to move onto breakfast and felt to watch the end of  video i had been watching a few days before, here Daniel Odier spoke of divine union, the Spanda (divine, inner resonance, wave like vibrations) and the eternal cosmic wave : “We can only touch spontaneity when we let go of dogma, old beliefs, old certitude’s, because these things are what prevents the body to move freely… then the body finds space to express completely. For the tantric’s it is not to find belief’s or to compare beliefs but to destroy beliefs… To expand completely… To be apart of the wave, everything is a wave, starting at the cellular level to the cosmic level… To breath completely, to unfold in all directions” – Daniel Odier.

It was if my life and my meditation had become one, a divine union and when I read a little further, came this: Abhinavagupta, the great tenth century tantric philosopher from Kashmir said”Tell me, what is the absolute nature of reality which allows no room for doubt? Listen carefully! Stop holding on to this or that, inhabit your true absolute nature, and peacefully enjoy the essence of what it is to be alive!”…

Had i just stumbled onto a large cosmic answer for myself? Has the inner universe struggle surfaced finally to touch the outer consciousness? Has it always? I am left with no doubt today… For a moment life seems to be less of a mystery and more of an unfolding of absolute astonishing undeniable true experiences… And it felt like a wave…
