In the Cave till our Grave

In the Cave till our Grave Empty In the Cave till our Grave

Many of us stay in the cave till our graves because we are so restricted and protected by our belief systems that all our lives, we choose to live and die in the cave. Just like a frog in the well, we are not willing to explore the reality of who we truly are, what we are, where we have come from, and where we will go.

We are so programmed as children and young adults that whatever we have learned in the first two to three decades of our life becomes the constitution, the rules, and the laws of our life. Our philosophy refuses to go beyond that. We live and die with the roots we have been given. And because of these roots, we are unable to change the shoots and the fruits. Thus, we live our entire lives as the same tree.

But once in a while, some of us may walk out of the cave to see the beautiful sunshine outside, to look up at the sky and see the clouds, birds, moon and stars, realizing that the life in the cave was restricted.

In the same way, we believe that we are this body. We live and die in those little families that are known to us, without realizing our true Father, our Creator. Who is our Creator? Where did we come from? Essentially, who are we?

When we contemplate deeply, we realize that we are not this mortal body, but the divine spirit, which is nothing but the power of God, the almighty Creator – omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient – who we cannot define or comprehend. Much later, when we have the courage to think further, then only we realize that we are not just the spirit, but also the power of God – beyond being the spirit alone.

God has manifested into everything in this world. Without God, there is nothing! This entire world is a manifestation and not a creation of God. Therefore, we are God, disguised, manifested as this human body.

It is on deep contemplation that this realization is arrived at – as to who we are and who God is. Once we realize these answers, we can live a life of bliss or Aananda, knowing the truth that God is everywhere, even in our hearts!
