Swami's talk about ideas of freedom Swami Santhiprasad, Spiritual Yoga Master & Yoga Guru
Dear Yoga friends,
of freedom and
are not the same!
body comes out of food, exists on food and if food is not provided,
the body will perish. So the Seers of the East consider the body
Annamayakosam means the sheath of consciousness that exists
on food. Food is synthesized in plants through a process called photosynthesis.
In photosynthesis the energy of sunlight and its warmth is fixed by
the plants as food. In essence, ultimately it is the warmth of the
sun that creates and sustains the body. In this respect it is needless
to say that there is a great sharing in nature based on which we are
surviving. We are part and parcel of Nature, which is existence itself.
The moment we start to feel we are separate from the whole we break
the harmony of existence. Thereby, we miss the great possibility to
experience the whole.
food, we consume, is also carried to each and every cell of our
body through the blood stream. It stays in the tissues, as easily
breakable compounds. Plants are the only organisms that can manufacture
food on their own. As human beings, we are in fact indebted to
the flora world for its benediction in the form of food for our
survival. When this food reaches the human body it waits for
the Prana vayu, oxygen, to come, unite and liberate the energy.
oxygen is also coming from Nature. Air enters to the human lung
due to the air pressure adjustment that is kept in the nature
by the great Intelligence. Those who have eyes to see unbiased
can always see the unbounded grace that is showering upon all
the beings for their maintenance. We are surviving on the grace
of the ultimate, the all knowing Intelligence, which is functioning
both inside and outside. We often hear some one says that he
is not seeing this grace. It is exactly the same as that person
hides under the shadow and complains that sun light is not falling
water that we drink is not created by human beings. We only have
arrested its flow and felt that we are the owners of it. There
is a lot of quarrel for its sharing all along the human history;
still we do continue this fight. There is something wrong in
human beings. It is so strange that he has to feel that everything
belongs to him.
To feel ownership of everything gives him pleasure.
He is always on pleasure hunt. Certainly pain is the other side
of pleasure. It is paradoxical that he is not seeing the pain
pleasure continuum even when he is suffering and enjoying from
the same root cause. Though we are surviving on food, water,
sun light, air and so on which are the simple components of existence,
it is so difficult for human beings to feel that he is not a
Why posses when you are the whole?
entertaining the idea of possession we limit the scope
of our unbounded Nature. So there arises the idea of
freedom. Ideas of freedom and freedom are not the same.
Freedom is beyond the limits of language. Ideas of freedom
are with in its limits.
is important to examine all our ideas, concepts and believes
as a first step and generates readiness to leave them
as they are the root of our individuation that limits
the scope of being full and complete. Everything is full
and complete. So there is no everything. There is not
many, but only One and that is perfect
