Hi Bojan
Well, in terms of the appearance of the world, there are grand cycles of creation and dissolution. A dissolution would happen when every being everywhere in creation is fully awake. But that’s just the appearance. Who we are in a deeper sense is functionally eternal. Our appearance comes and goes but who we are goes on. Creation works in a similar way.

As the Yoga Vasishtha describes, when creation arises again in appearance, it’s essentially running the same program again, with the same souls. But that’s just a perspective. In another perspective, it never arose in the first place and the arising itself was just an appearance. We remain eternal.

You can also see it from a science perspective. Our sun has a shelf-life and some billions of years in the future, it will expand to absorb our planet. But if you see your life as a means of experiencing and becoming enlightened, then this isn’t a loss. It was simply one of trillions of stages on which the play could unfold.

I’d agree humans have been here much longer than history suggests. Science doesn’t understand the cycle of ages. Golden ages don’t leave traces the same way as monumental (Treta) ages, for example.

But have we been the same all those years? Perhaps not. There is archeological evidence of both small people and giants, for example, and the avatars prior to the last golden age didn’t come in human form. Not to mention souls that migrate from other stages or light forms. The models may change a bit over time but there is fundamentals that remain, driven by the cosmic body template.

How long we’ll be around I don’t see as a particularly useful question due to all the variables. Time isn’t rigid. If the Bushunda story is accurate, our general form has been around for more than a billion years, depending on how you calculate yugas.

But yes, the end of this planet/ stage, of this universe, and of this creation are all dissolution cycles. But all are cyclic, not permanent.

Enlightenment is about coming to know who we are behind all that, about what lives on whatever the stage.

Comment on The Primary Contractions by Davidya https://davidya.ca/2020/10/24/the-primary-contractions/#comment-14322 Thu, 29 Oct 2020 19:06:38 +0000 https://davidya.ca/?p=11998#comment-14322 In reply to Guru.

Hi Guru
It’s not that the past goes away, it’s that our identification with the personal sense of I has dissolved. It can sometimes seem like it has prior, but as noted, it has layers. The past remains but no longer dominates. We live more in the present, in what is here now.

Yes, we still need some sense of person to function, just as we need lungs and a heart. But these are not experienced as who we are. And yes, we experience the full range of emotions. In fact, we experience them more fully. But they no longer leave residues. They simply wash over us and complete as there is little to impede them.

And yes, overall it’s a process. There are still secondary things to be cleared and much of the collective still has lots of baggage. But the quality of life climbs progressively.

Yes, we help others in part by raising consciousness and by processing some of the collective and so forth. Further, we’re in relation with others which helps reflect any shadows that remain. Plus good friends will point out issues. That may or may not help us see them. But knowing we have a blind spot is still good.

Some will also have specific gifts that arise, such as energy healing, understanding, being able to work with devas, administration, and so forth. That enhances our ability to help.

Right – the fundamental shifts are shifts in consciousness and what it knows of itself through this body-mind. In other words, the point comes to know the wholeness and wholeness, the point. As the world is a great deal more than just physical appearance, there is a lot to discover.

Comment on End Times by Bojan https://davidya.ca/2020/10/28/end-times/#comment-14321 Thu, 29 Oct 2020 10:38:55 +0000 https://davidya.ca/?p=12008#comment-14321 ! But what about the real end times? Probably it will happen sometimes in the distant future trillions of years later... What the real and final end of times means to you? Is it just the end of the humankind? Humans are living on the planet Earth already a very long time. Acording to Vivekananda we are here already 50 million years, Meher Baba said it's even longer, more then 80 million years, if i remember correctly. But eventualy the human existence will come to an end. Do you have any idea how long will humans exist on this planet? Or does the final end times means the end of the planet Earth, the end of the universe and creation? Or all of the above? Always looking forward to your insights!]]> Hi David
This is such an uplifting and positive article! Thanks for that! It’s certainly good to know that better times are ahead of us.
I wrote in the past about my ambivalence about the rising golden age, so i won’t repeat it again this time☺️!
But what about the real end times? Probably it will happen sometimes in the distant future trillions of years later…

It is very informative and interesting. when three centered are awakened, do we not have past at all? core identity remains to function in world. do we not experience negative emotions occasionally? is all this continuous process? can we help others in this process, as that person is unconscious about these things. I loved it when you say these shifts happen in consciousness.

Right, John. And so much waking has been happening – to consciousness and further into Brahman and Divinity – to help smooth the way.

That Silence in Flow (now where does that phrase come from? 🙂 ) in the collective consciousness is so real…. Something Good is Happening! Here’s to smoothing the way!

Comment on Understanding your Energy System (Part 1/5) by Davidya https://davidya.ca/2009/06/21/understanding-energy-system-part-1/#comment-14317 Wed, 28 Oct 2020 16:26:32 +0000 http://in2deep.wordpress.com/?p=1861#comment-14317 In reply to Lynette.

Hi Lynette
That we are the consciousness that is observing and not the content of the experience. That the content arises from that consciousness.

In this context, I’m not referring to mind understanding but rather to understanding that develops from direct experience, particularly in meditation. From that experience, we can come to understand that we are the observer. That helps unravel some of our contractions and attachment. And that can open the door to awakening.

Comment on Practical Understanding (Part 4/5) by Davidya https://davidya.ca/2009/06/21/practical-understanding-part-45/#comment-14316 Wed, 28 Oct 2020 16:16:46 +0000 http://in2deep.wordpress.com/?p=1869#comment-14316 In reply to Lynette.

Hi Lynette
Rajas is the energy of transformation but it can also burn. So the key is balance.

Energy healing is more about removing impediments and healing resistance. It may be applicable but generally the first step is to look at diet and lifestyle a la Ayurveda. Understanding your dosha and what works for you is very helpful.

An effortless meditation also helps soothe. If you need more help, that’s when you might consult an energy healer to see if they can help.

What do you mean?
