Godliness is the completeness where the Ugly and the Beauty merge as one.
When the pinnacle of Beauty and Ugliness come together – without differentiation, Shiva appears. Shiva is height of realization, the ultimate conceptualization of what could be if all could be what all is.
Shiva may not be anyone’s fact, but “It” is everyone’s Truth.
Existence is whole and complete. Where all its qualities are but its own expression. Shiva is our attempt at personification of how creation moves into the non-creation. The cusp of creation and non-creation – where the intuitive expression of dance and music merge with the eternal sound – the Nada Brahman (Eternal Sound).
When the need to express for someone reaches its highest and the expressor merges with expression such that body, dance and the music are synonymous. One is incomplete without the other, yet each is expressed completely by the other. The harmony of the expression and expressor is in the dissolution and merger of both.
Shiva resides in Its own madness and wild-ness of existence. It creates and destroys at will. Reality of any moment is not in its existence, but in its continual creation and destruction. The wild and blinding movement between the two creates the illusion of an existence. Duality of destruction and creation, however, is the foundation of what seems as existence. When the continual coming and going ends, the primal is. However, in that sense, It is and is not. There expression loses its meaning and potency. Madness of expression, that is Shiva has reached a level, where expression has ceased or it is the only “thing”.
Existence is the expression of the Primal’s urge to explore itself. White light’s exploration of its own colors, which are part of it, yet non-existent. There is no reason, for there is no purpose for there is no separation as such. Separation may be a “fact” of the parts but it is not the “Truth” of the whole.
Shiva is where the Demon and the Divine become one. Shiva’s concept is unique in its totality – the demons are part of the divine. Everything that is ugly comes together to express itself as the ultimate beauty. And that is the Truth.
Satyam, Shivam Sundaram.
Beauty cannot wish away Ugliness, just as the Divine cannot separate itself from the Demonic, both are the expression of the same Truth. One is because the other is. When One reaches its pinnacle, its existence remains no more.
In the midst of the dualities of the two eyes (visions) lies the “Third Eye” – the Vision where all dualities merge… where all that the Duality can perceive vanishes. When the “Third Eye” opens, existence, epitomized by its dualities, remains no more. It ceases. Yet lives. Lives as One Dynamic, Vibrant, Primal Truth.
