399.1 - Is the Physical
Universe Infinite? (Audio)
May 6, 2010
New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous
lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why
Physics tells us that the speed of light is a constant, and nothing can
travel faster than that. Yet, from my practice, I now know that everything
is contained within me. Are the laws of physics going to have be rewritten
as our instant access to the cosmic regions via inner awakening becomes
widely known? Like a hologram, I am both the part and the whole at the same
time. This oneness that we are has been called "cosmic
mind." Because everything is this oneness, then there is nothing that could
ever be a movement beyond it. If there is a movement of mind then it is a
movement in omnipresence. So there can be nothing faster than mind, because
mind is always being the absolute oneness, which is everywhere.
A: Agreed, assuming thought, our experience of mind, is "relational"
(occurring in stillness). This takes us from theory to practice, from
philosophy to direct experience. Physics will expand itself to accommodate
this as it becomes the common experience of many. There will not be a
choice. The truth that is experienced directly must be taken into account.
From the perspective of the individual, thoughts are only omnipresent
when consciously released in omnipresent abiding inner silence,
which is cultivated through deep meditation. Before that, thoughts
are only objects of perception with which we are identified locally. It is
the samyama effect (release in stillness) that enables thought to become
omnipresent, and therefore infinite in speed.
Before the samyama
effect, a thought is like a picture. After the samyama effect, a thought is
the thing itself, and far more influential via the infinite creative energy
of divine outpouring that occurs when the mind is surrendered in stillness.
The AYP practice of Cosmic Samyama cultivates this omnipresent condition
and the awakening of cosmic thought in the individual. Is a thought of the
cosmos the cosmos? Released in abiding inner silence it is, instantly. The
speed of light is a "slow boat to China" by comparison.
thousand years to cross our galaxy at the speed of light? We can meet on the
other side right now, and be back again in an instant. The universe is our
playground when we are reborn in the divine flow resulting from the marriage
of abiding inner silence and our ecstatic awakening. We are
everywhere, and nowhere. Free!
The guru is in you.
