An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Thus Observing Creation, I had become Atomic.

Vasistha Yoga is my favorite reading on spirituality. Here is very interesting passage where Sage Vasistha is explaining to Ram the manifestation of creation itself. If you look at the sub-atomic level in the scientific manner it all rings true!

As I was thus observing creation, I had become atomic. I realised myself as a ray of light. Contemplating that alone, I had become gross. In this grossness there were the potentialities of sense experiences…I began to see. The organs through which I saw became the eyes, that which I saw became the scene (object), the fruit of this experience was sight, “when” I saw alll this became time (duration), the manner in which I saw became the method or order, “wherever” I saw became space. By conviction these became the order of creation.

The main issue that it underlines is the centrality of one consciousness and without divisions. We all wish for things. Can they be achieved? Vasishtha believed this:

People in whom the perception of division has been deep rooted do not have the power to realize their wish; when one like the sage has weekened the perception of division it is possible for him to realize his wish.

Just note the word “perception” of division.
