(( The Bowl of Ocean ))
Did you ever wonder why we have the body? What’s so special that we need a body? Why we need to have a body when we are here on earth? Why?
Why not we still be invisible and do thing? If we have so much power to do things with body, we might have even more power without having a boundary of body? Why we have to be formed of a matter and can’t remain only of space?
We still can.. but its a tricky process to be there.
If I ask you, do you live a life where you are free from all sort of worries, boundaries etc.? Don’t you want to be free in your life just like a sky or oceans? Who doesn’t want to. Every human being strives to go higher form of freedom if allowed to!
Keeping the above unsung, untold, unrealised, uncovered wish of all us, lets take the most suitable example of freedom as Ocean. Ocean is vast, huge, and free…
Just imagine, in the wildest of dreams or the craziest of your goals, you wish to become Ocean (which is one of the highest representation of freedom)!
How could you be?
If we need to be Ocean, first let’s find a bowl. You may not get a perfect bowl – so you get a wooden bowl with some minor cracks in it. You know that’s the only bowl you have and the goal is to be part of sea. So you start filling the water from the sea but it goes of from cracks. With faith, you continue to fill almost every day and night. Slowly you observe that the sand and salt from the water is getting accumulated and fill the gaps! So with more joy, you speed up the process and finally get your bowl filled with water and carry some part of sea!
Now, its time to reach the final goal. The only way we could be part of the vast ocean is to get this water from bowl into the ocean! So you are part of it..
Until we are unable to fill our freedom into a form with the help of a vessel; we will not be able to part or ocean!
Similarly, to attain any higher spiritual goal from this very life, we need a tool or vessel.. in our case its a body!
The ultimate goal is to be either eternal, space form or we say as “Akshar” – (1) we need to have body, (2) PrAgat Aksharbrahm in front of us as a role model – Sea (3) our efforts to merge in Aksharbraham through “Sadhana”
- Bowl is body!
- Gaps are our ill nature and habbit, time and matter!
- Efforts is spirituality!
- Ocean is Aksharbhram!
- And in Ocean, we find inseparable Parabraham 😇👍🏻
