Advaitism while driving
My very own space, where I get to think...though the mind runs amuck....yep what a dawg I am.
Reading Nisargadatta's I AM THAT and it is not an easy book to read, but I am settling down into it...
Some of the stuff makes total sense, there is talk of purity ...
And in one of my moments of pure thinking on the road, I feel it should be so easy to do the right thing - the world being unreal as it is and that the universe decides actions and reactions (not me) - so why not do the right thing and get to that all elusive purity.
I was a bit surprised at the reaction I got when I didn't lose my temper at someone else's bad attitude and seemed like I was getting some help (finally) at being the good guy. As I drove down, I tried to feel my atman, which to me means just changing perspective and watching everything as if I am on vacation (casting my To-Dos aside) and the world just appeard so very beautiful. I felt that this is my turn to be this wonderful person that I always think I am. Can I really make that turn and be that something? No more shortcuts? Be pure???? Or will I wilt away at the first sign of trouble and revert to taking the shortcuts? The hand of God got Maradonna the world cup, do I need to do the same to achieve some sort of whatever? Is it really worth it?
Here is the original freeway zen
Some good links here too
Not fixed on any car or object,
Not fixed on the road.
I watch, open and relaxed.
I see the road ahead.
I am aware of the flow of traffic.
I see the rear view mirror.
Not focused on anything
I see all.
Welcome to the spirituality blog
This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
