Thursday night musing

Reading Eckhart Tolle - makes it all so real and within reach.
Reading Mantras and Sholkas - I felt a surreal connection with all the souls who have read it through the ages - and here I am reading them again, and in the future someone else will be reading it and will feel that similar sense of bhakti for Shiva -

I go back to the first time I recognized the world when I was around ~3 years old, how the veil was lifted from my eyes and I could see the sun shining in all its brightness, the grass green as ever and the world was the most magnificent place ever... was that the state of moksha that I had touched upon?

I go back to the car crash that I had experienced, and I go back to that instant, when I felt the THUMP of the car and the jolt and it seemed like at that instant, it was not me, but someone else that experienced the hurt. I think back and I think that it was me getting in touch with my dual self.

Moments of joy or sorrow, something outside of the normal - seems to always bring out the dual self that hides inside me.

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!
