Mighty Damn Fruitful!
R: Daniel, I am having periods now where I have been able to drop the jiva’s agenda to the background, but would describe it as finding the “greatest ease” frequency that you talk about. I think there’s a Sanskrit term for that.
Daniel: You are paramasukhadam – the greatest ease, that which is always comfortable. Sukha is “ease, comfort,” and parama is “the highest, the greatest.”
“You are the greatest ease because you are all that is, yet you never do a thing. All you do is BE, exist as you are, without limits or attributes – so easy, never changing, always shining.” ~ Christian Leeby
R: The state of being just becomes obvious, I can feel a subtle energy, and of course want to hold on to the subtle bliss of that, but it eventually appears to fade back when the jiva agenda items push it away.
Daniel: Keep flexing that nididhyasana muscle, R, constantly!
It’s only natural that these mithya-based pressure cookers (i.e. jiva agendas) spark off the mind and set it running away from its perfect bliss. But no need to be concerned, it just serves as an opportunity to further ground the knowledge.
As Sundari says, “Nididhyasana never really ends for the jiva. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
Keeping up your sadhana is a blessing for the world (loka seva), Rji.
R: I’m still having the sattvic morning energy wash over me seemingly at will, by contemplating the “presence of the Giver,” aka presence of God. The sattvic energy is wonderful, it goes on as long as I am open to it. Having read The Yoga of Three Energies, it is welcome and not misinterpreted as sat, but I’ll settle for sattva. That said, contemplating sat-chit-ananda on occasion seems to produce the same subtle feeling and I believe the build-up of sattva in my subtle body is fruiting (as you might say) some good things.
Daniel: Sounds mighty damn fruitful, R. Well earned!
R: How do I learn about loka seva? That feels fruitful too.
Daniel: No need to learn about loka seva. You’re already a loka seva vehicle, R. Continue applying self-inquiry and you naturally live a life of loka seva – a life of divine service.
It sure does feel fruitful. There is nothing sweeter than owning your true identity, the source (and sauce) of all sweetness.
R: Here is a poem you might not have seen. Maybe I should have titled it Fructification or Fruitful Living. Feel free to send your suggestions.
Daniel: Beautiful poem, R. May I post it at ShiningWorld? Fruitification! ☺
R: Daniel, thanks, Everything Anew is attached, updated version.
Daniel: Great. I’ll post it under the “Guest” section. ☺
