Lekh 110 – Part 2 by Bhau Ji
Creation can be divided into 2 planes
- The worldly plane – the plane of duality
- The Divine plane – Sachkhand (Realm of Truth)
The worldly plane has developed from the doubt ridden world of ego and its mainstay is the belief in `me-mine’.
Man has been wondering through countless rebirths, through the doubt ridden fallacies of the polluted ego. Within the polluted doubts of `me-mine’ state man
- works and
- faces consequences
have him entangled within their sensual desires. He remains trapped within the cycle of coming and going (births and deaths)
1 Being entangled and enmeshed in the love of false occupations, the whole world has perished” (133)
The involvement with `me-mine’ or ego, like a ghost, has clung to man through all these births thereby causing him to forget his creator.
2 Such is the ‘maya’ materialism by which the Lord is forgotten Worldly love wells up and one is attached to the love of another. (921)
In this way the separate existence of `me-mine’ or ego state through
religious practices has seeped into every facet of man’s life. Within our
- worldly ‘self’
this has forced – settled – permeated into the deepest recesses and has entrenched itself.
In this way we are unknowingly
on the `me-mine’ ego state.
This separate existence under the influence of the ego state has so much captured our attention in the deepest recesses of our being, that without the desire of `me-mine,’ our life appears incomplete and dissatisfying.
Man is God’s image; His illumination
1 “O my soul you are the embodiment of Divine light. Do understand your source” (441)
When this being was suspended upside down in the mothers womb he was meditating on his creator, But when the man appears in the external materialistic world, the hue (colour) of the materialistic world spreads all over him. He forgets his creator – the Timeless Being and begins to meditate on the doubt ridden world of `me-mine’- in other words he begins the practice of Simran (of the `me-mine’ state).
1 As is the fire within the womb, so is Maya outside. The fire of Maya is one and the same; the Creator has staged this play. According to His Will, the child is born, and the family is very pleased. Love for the Lord wears off, and the child becomes attached to desires; the script of Maya runs its course .
This is Maya, by which the Lord is forgotten; emotional attachment and love of duality well up.
Says Nanak, by Guru’s Grace, those who enshrine love for the Lord find Him, in the midst of Maya. 921
