“But what we can do is to understand it : That if a colour is dropped on the ocean, the ocean becomes colourful-is not possible. But try to understand: if a little colour, limited colour, is dropped into the ocean, the colour loses its identity completely. Think of the other way round. If the ocean is coloured, and is poured into atmosphere or onto any part any little wee bit, or onto any spot, onto any atom or anything, it all becomes colourful.
So the Spirit is like the ocean which has the light in it. And when this ocean pours into the little cup of your brain, the cup loses its identity and everything becomes Spiritual! Everything! you can make everything Spiritual. Everything. You touch anything-it is Spiritual! The sand becomes Spiritual, the land becomes Spiritual, atmosphere becomes Spiritual, celestial bodies becomes Spiritual. Everything becomes Spiritual!
So it is the ocean-that is the Spirit, while your brain is limited.
So the detachment from your limited brain has to be brought in. All limitations of brain should be ‘broken’ so that when this ocean fills that brain; it should break that little cup and every bit of that cup should become colourful. The whole atmosphere, everything, whatever you look at, should be colourful. Colour of the Spirit is the light of the Spirit and this light of the Spirit acts, works, thinks, co-ordinates, does everything.
This is the reason today I decided to bring Shiva-Tattwa to the brain.”
** Tattwa =Principle in Sanskrit; Shiva represents the Spirit and resides in the Left aspect of the Heart Chakra
