The mindset we have has not helped us. It has led us to a mediocre reality. It has led us to acceptiong a reality that is full of suffering and pain.
We need something that is fulfilling, something that we can enjoy. Bliss will be the character of that existence. When can humanity as a whole get that reality? Is it impossible? No, it’s not impossible. It is the very nature of our existence to be in bliss, to be in symmetry.
In quantum physics, they call it ‘super symmetry’. There is super symmetry — at the particle level. Super symmetry is when everything is in perfect condition, but then we are far from that kind of reality. But we cannot access this reality if the mind is functioning in the same way as it is now. It has to function from a different level. And what is that level, where there is no knowledge, no ignorance.
All that we need to do is not gain anything more than what we have. As a matter of fact, it is a matter of losing what we have. Losing our ego, which is your ‘i’ consciousness, is the culprit.
Then there is maya which is again the mind functioning at a very gross level. Maya is only seeing material reality. You look at a banana but the banana is not the ultimate reality. The banana is composed of particles. Do we see any particles in the banana? We don’t. We only see the banana whether it is a green banana, a ripe banana, small banana, or long banana. So, the bottom line: we don’t see the ultimate constituent of the banana fruit which are a bunch of paticles, but we only see a gross reality of the banana fruit.
Our consciousness has been trapped to process only gross realities. The quantum mind gives the ability to process quantum realities. We have to process quantum realities beause it is the most powerful reality. It has infinite freedom, energy and intelligence. We should all embrace that quantum reality.
In the 15th century in south India Arunagirinathar lived a very licentious life; he developed a dreadful disease and he didn’t want to live anymore. He climbed up the temple tower and then jumped off. Then the story goes that Muruga, son of Shiva, took a form of the old man and then held him while he was falling down from the tower .
He put him down and then said to him: “Be still without words.” And his mind stopped, there were no words, there was no mind. As soon as the mind stopped, what happend was he was in a quantum reality of nothingness. And in that nothingness, he experienced a feeling of “fullness”.
Everyone is going through only the gross molecular intelligence. We have no access to this quantum mind. As soon as Muruga told Arunagirinathar “be still without words” he lost his ignorance and lost his knowledge, too. Both are two extremes. When these two extremes of knowledge and ignorance were lost, he was able to understand everything without any reference point. At the time, what happened was he developed omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence.
Nothing was impossible at that time when he found that he was in that quantum mind. Is it possible for everyone to attain this quantum mind? Yes it is.
