Once an elephant was walking from Mattancherry to Ernakulathappan temple for the annual festival. It so happened that an ant (urumbu) was busy creeping from the head of the elephant towards its tail. Will the ant ever reach back mattancherry.? Our activity and seeming inactivity are both of MOTHER NATURE. It is her active phase and inactive phase which we tend to superimpose on ourselves as our own . The causal body or aham (I ) the subtle body or mind and the gross body or physical belong to Nature. So we wake up , remain active exhaust ourselves then fall asleep. All these, whether waking dream or sleep belong to nature. Pair of opposites alternate in nature. It is natural to think and dream and fall asleep.
While our svaroopa or true identity is beyond our apparent nature. It is neither activity nor inactivity. It is what it is. A mass of consciousness aware of only its existence. Self effulgent Consciousness.; which is peace and bliss. .
When we recognize our true identity as self effulgent Consciousness our apparent nature or mind knows to exhaust itself. Maya or nature has inherent intelligence. We need not and should not interfere in its working. When we are in the train the train carries us. The train carries our burden. We need not place our luggage on our head to claim that we are carrying our burden. In the same way MOTHER nature is carrying ourselves and our burden. A wise man takes no responsibility of either himself or his burden. Mother nature does everything. She is the supporter . She nurtures us. She knows to carry our burden very well. We need not interfere and create problems. Nature has its own intelligence. She is all powerful. She is all knowing. She is all pervading. She is the power of the almighty God.
Only we have drop the idea of doing and enjoying.' I do I enjoy.' 'I am responsible are the wrong notions of asuras or demons.' It is the all powerful Nature which does and enjoys. The cultured and the wise are fully aware of this truth.
Taking the name of God is a powerful aid to transcend duality. It is feeling the proximity of GOD, His Grace. It is like the mother (Grace ) rocking the baby (devotee) to sleep on her lap
Proximity to Gauri or Shiva's power (Grace) makes you utter the name of Shiva. In simple language when Gauri possesses you, you by instinct chant name of Lord Shiva
Recognition of our true identity as consciousness makes us muse over His power or Grace. She or Sabda or God's power amuses the jnanis or men of recognition.
