Daily Wisdom-isms

Today’s nugget of Nirvana comes from the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, as translated by A.C. Bhaktivendanta Swami Prabhupada. The idea that we are all “Observers” in an unreal reality is one that has intrigued me for a while. Hinduism believes that all humans have a “Super Soul” and an “Atomic Soul” the Super Soul is the ultimate spiritual part of our beings. It exists outside of time and space. While the Atomic Soul is the part of our Soul that descends into the material realm and animates our bodies, gives us consciousness, etc. Enjoy!

“A person in the divine consciousness, although engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving about, sleeping and breathing, always knows within himself that he actually does nothing at all. Because while speaking, evacuating, receiving, or opening or closing his eyes, he always knows that only the material senses are engaged with their objects and he is apart from them.”—The Bhagavad-Gita

About Universal Shift

I am the Sonata Unusual. I coat myself with some obtuse angle too far below zero to become any warmer. I create motivation, activate schemas, moisten gardens with scents of natural honeydew. Construct this meaning, you sleepy flock. Silence your singing—despairing contortions out of tune. Shatter the brittle butterfly glass with your hideous wailing. I am born of my god’s imagination. When I die I shall meet him. For there are many things to discuss over tea…or scotch.
