Namaskar. The human mind is not limited to the five senses and the sensory experience of living beings. When the baby is first born it experiences the embodiment of awareness; becomes aware of the physical form, the sight, the sound. The five senses become dominant. And as the child grows, consciousness immerses in the experience of embodiment—feeling senses, awareness of others, connectedness, and love. As the mind grows in magnitude, intellect develops the rational mind, the ability to analyze, distinguish, and identify. All of this is dependent on a sense of self and others. There is something outside of oneself to analyze, to distinguish, to determine if it is a threat or something to be acquired.
And so, the life of most people, and most of those in animal form, is spent in this process of analyzing the environment—everything that happens in the physical body to determine if there is a threat or if this is something to be acquired. This is the nature of embodiment in human or animal forms of any type. And many people spend their entire lives in this process.
But, if awareness of thoughts and feelings grows in magnitude, it moves beyond this process of aversion and acquisition and comes to perceive a subtle awareness; an awareness that requires the intuitional mind. And, as deep reflection grows and self-inquiry grows, the mind grows in magnitude, meaning that the individual sense of awareness of body and senses ceases to be the only avenue of perception of consciousness. Consciousness begins to perceive itself. Begins to move into the realms of the cosmic mind and perceive a broader, more expansive understanding - a broader awareness. That awareness is not in sentences, is not the product of the rational mind, but is a full experience that entails direct experience. This direct experience includes the heart. It isn't just in the head, but it is a feeling, a direct awareness of being.
And as the intuitional mind grows in magnitude, there is the ability to perceive the vastness of this universe. The ability to perceive the web of life that entails all living beings in an interwoven, interconnected existence. When this happens, and the mind grows in magnitude beyond the sensory experiences of the body/mind, the ego tends to lose its ground. It is no longer sustained by consciousness in the body/mind alone. Consciousness expands to the vastness of what is. And in this experience, there is knowledge. The knowledge that does not come from analytical analysis of the rational mind, but the knowledge that comes through direct experience, through a sense that is other than the five senses - the sixth sense.
This sixth sense is a sense that is not sight, not smell, not sound, not touch. It is another sense that you have. It is a sense that experiences directly. It tends to experience wholeness. Information does not come in isolated forms, but comes in a wholeness, an understanding. And then as that downloads into the rational mind it forms into thoughts and sentences, ideas. But it does not come as ideas. It does not come to you as thoughts. It comes in a knowing, in a holistic understanding, a kind of psychic touching.
This ability, this sixth sense, is an awareness that can be known and understood by the mind of a human being associated with the brain. But it does not originate in the brain. It originates in consciousness. It originates in awareness beyond the five senses. This awareness brings you to knowledge that otherwise you could not have. And all the sages and saints of this world, all those that pursued the inner path of awareness of connecting to their consciousness, conscious intelligent awareness, have found this avenue of perceptual knowledge.
And as the mind continues to expand in this intuitional field, as the ability to know grows, knowledge of past, present, and future comes. Knowledge of many things comes. They come in this sixth sense, this feeling. The feeling is not the correct word but it is close. Touch—touch is also not the correct word. It is not physical touch. It is mental touch - awareness. Put all of these words together you have an idea of this sixth sense from which you gain great knowledge, understanding, and true solid ground. Because the sixth sense touches the cosmic mind, not the individual mind but the cosmic mind, and gains melting into that great cosmic awareness, that great infinite mind in which the whole universe is strung. When all beings abide there comes knowledge, knowledge from the ancient one, the deep inner mystic.
And from that knowledge, saints, and sages of the ages have written understanding of the world around them and the universe itself. And scientists of today use their intense concentration to bridge the barrier and then, perhaps in the dream, in just a moment of 'aha' they move beyond the intellect, the rational mind, to connect with that sixth sense that associates with the cosmic mind. And there, the knowledge they are seeking drops into the mind and then drops down into the rational mind to be formed into words and ideas. But it comes from that very same source that the ancient yogis and those beings of the inner journey have found, and which you have touched in your meditation in your inner search.
In the love of Paramapurusha, in that intimate relationship you have with that one, all this knowledge abides. That one is the source of all knowledge. To know all know the one, for within that one all abides. And this sixth sense is the ability to perceive directly with the intuitional mind, not with the body-mind.
As this mind grows in magnitude, the awareness, or consciousness that has looked out through your eyes and heard with your ears, and knows what you see, knows what you hear, knows your thoughts—that same conscious aware self begins to be aware beyond your existence in the melding into the cosmic mind, in the vijnanamaya and hiranyamaya, kosas. It comes to know the knowledge, the akashic records some people call it, within the cosmic mind, and then the pure light, the pure bliss from which all manifestation arises, and the essence of being.
When focused awareness attention goes to those realms. That which has been you, the knower of your existence, is knowing the whole universe, is knowing itself, and ceases to be an individual. When you bring your awareness into this vast cosmic realm you cease to be, for that moment, an individual. You melt yourself into that cosmic existence.
But this is not done by effort. That is what applies to the physical realm. In this realm, it is focused and letting go, letting go, letting go, until awareness, attention, and consciousness are in its natural state of being. It may feel like love. It may feel like deep peace. It may feel like bliss or emptiness. And as you deeper, deeper, the very definition of self dissolves. You ask if there are multiverses or multiple Brahmas. Ask within this vast quietude, this infinite beingness. There all abide by potential. The potentials are endless. The creativity of the cosmos is limitless. And yet, all abide in being.
When you follow the thread of your heart to the core of being, all abide in potential. Who are you but a dream yet to be dreamed? That which you are - your natural state of being. It's timeless, always has been, and always will be. It is neither moving out nor moving in. It is. This is the cohesion of all that is. The love that never dies. The peace is eternal. Your natural state.
So do not waste this precious human birth. Use it to cross the waters of illusion and the dream of creation to your natural state of being. Follow the guide of your heart. That one will lead you there.
