I the eternal reveller & time traveller

The veda upanishads declare long before you look for the eternal, or search for everlasting happiness, it has already found all of us. Without you, not only Truth, has no meaning, nothing has meaning. Already the meaning in everything, without knowing it, the happiness that we look for has already arrived. Being ourselves Truth has already reached all of us. No one can escape.

Wanting to be eternally happy and live forever, the Eternal that we yearn for has already arrived. Already gained, praptasya prapti, just by being human missing is only knowledge. Once a teacher points out the ever present Self, finding ourselves to be the meaning we are looking for in everything, all searching stops.

Where all questioning begins, Self being the questioner is where all questioning resolves and knowledge ends.

Searching for meaning in our lives, we don’t realise, before any search can be meaningful, first we have to be meaningful.

Without us creation; the whole universe has no meaning.
First, we are the meaning. Looking for meaning anywhere else, we miss the whole point.

In vedanta; Self-knowledge – we discover, the meaning of completeness, the meaning of fullness, the wholeness, purnam we look for in everything is always ourselves. Already the destination, we are the completeness Itself.

The Eternal that we look for; immortality has already arrived

Not knowing it, or where our journey in creation is taking us, creation appears to be taking us on a wild goose chase. Not knowing the outcome, until the destination is pointed out, left to fill in the blanks on our own, our education leaves a huge gaping hole in our lives the size of the universe. Naming everything for us, including all our names for happiness, forgetting to include ourselves, our education leaves us out. Forgetting to name the namer, we eventually find out, the one naming happiness being the destination of happiness is the happiness itself. 

Before we can name everything it is a nameless universe.

Getting lost in the names, identifications, until we recognise the Seer, and name the namer our true identity remains hidden. Trying to fill in the gap our universal secret keeps eluding us.

Mystified, wanting our mystery to end, what we don’t realise is, the universe is as only a mystery because we are a mystery in it.  For those who get to know its secret, there is no mystery and no more conflict. One thing makes existence a mystery. And one thing makes it go away: We do.

” For any mystery to exist first there has to be a secret. Making the universe a mystery and a secret is ourselves.  To explode the mystery we have to explode the secret of ourselves. One word holds the secret to our mystery: ‘I’.”

That we are the solution to the mystery is its whole mystery and secret. Like a game creation is playing on itself – We are the grand prize. Waiting to explode, pending discovery is each of us. Each of us is the Truth. Before we know how to uncover and reveal its secret, creation/creator keeps hiding it from us. Keeping us in the dark, we keep on getting lost and conflicted.

One thing is getting conflicted and conflicting all of us: ‘I’. Hidden in one word, is the Truth. Once Atma vidya, Self-knowledge explodes the meaning of the word ‘I’ the whole universe explodes and has no more secrets.

To keep carrying the mystery of the universe around with us, is a huge burden we carry around our neck. Until we remove the burden, the universe keeps challenging us. To find out its secret we have to get challenged. Crisis challenges us to remove the burden.
The burden we carry is only our ignorance. Knowledge, by revealing creations greatest surprise and secret gets rid of all our burdens and suffering.

To explode the mystery we have to explode the secret of ourselves.

Until it is pointed out, we don’t know that we carry the secret of the universe with us and that we are the solution to the mystery. Ignorant and innocent, our ignorance is our bliss. For life to become truly meaningful and full, life’s mystery has to reveal itself. Questioning ourselves and the nature of the ‘I’ unblocks the Truth.  Questioning the questioner.

The question and questioner arising as a direct result of creation and our existence in it, answering the question of the questioner, answers all our questions. Not just of ourselves, but of creation.

Doubting the perceptions is the beginning of science. Doubting the perceiver is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.

Once you own your mystery, and your secret is revealed, the universe can play no more tricks on you. 

Not even death can trick you.

Only one thing is being challenged: ‘I’. Feeling threatened because of ignorance, ‘I’ not knowing itself, is already the Truth. We don’t need to feel threatened or vulnerable. Having already exploded in all of us as all of us, Truth is just waiting to be discovered. ‘I’ is the timeless nature Truth that is ourselves. Wielding the word ‘I’, the teacher of Atma Vidya Self-knowledge, by introducing us to ourselves, points out the Truth. Doing what generations of teachers have done before them: the teacher helps us recognise our ever present changeless glory by revealing our true nature.

Through the ocean of time one teaching of mankind; Atma Vidya has survived the test of time. To unlock the truth of being human and reveal our common secret; we don’t need to go anywhere. Already available we carry the only solution with us. Finally removing the burden of conflict, anguish and suffering, the teacher of Self-knowledge uses one word; the tiniest word in the English language, to point out the unlimitable – the Truth that is ever one Self.
