and sentient have a very close relationship; they live in
partnership like husk and grain, flower and fragrance, dross and
gold. Sentient energy operates in the universe with the help of
They are moving
together from beginning less time, manifesting the whole world.
Even if we know
the properties of both, we cannot understand the partnership
unless we go deep into inner experience and see it as the function
of relation and union. You can know the property of H2 and but
still youo may not be able to make water in the laboratory.
Similarly, when you go into meditation and really touch the
center, the heart of conspicuousness in that moment you will
experience, “It is nothing but sentient energy-it is I!”
You will no quote
any scriptures ,any talks. You will go on gliding until you reach
the centre which is beyond words. Later you will reflect that
“what I was calling me is only a shell. The real bird is
inside! ”We call ourselves by names, by our outer shells, because
we have not seen the “bird”inside.That bird cannot be seen
unless we go deep.
Once we experience
this deep experience, we will understand more clearly the
relation between sentient and insentient . So long as the egg
shell and the bird with in it are together ,there is partnership.
So long as the leaf is on the tree, sentient life is expressed
through the living form. When the egg shell is broken, he bird is
gone. When the leaf drops from the tree, its life force moves in
another direction. Eggshell and dry leaf—both follow the law of
disintegration. Its sentient energy moves on with evolution
into higher life.
At last we
realize, “There is something inside me which is building my whole
existence.” It appears as though the brain is doing all the work
but the brain is only a machine. It does not operate without an
operator. Behind the brain, behind the mind which acs as a motor,
there is the engineer handling the switch. That engineer is
conscious energy. When that energy leaves the brain, the brain is
seen for what it is—a machine. You can analyze it to find a
disease, but you cannot dissect it to find its motive. That
cannot be seen in any laboratory because the sentient is
Now let us see
how, in partnership with insentient matter, sentient energy
creates vibrations which build one’s whole existence. The process
is this: when the mind is not clear, transparent, purified, it
creates vibrations. These vibrations are both the result and the
cause of mental, emotional, or physical disturbances or negative
states. According to the specific state of attraction or
repulsion—whether it be anger, pride, deceit, greed, jealousy,
sorrow, or attachment, the mind is setting up a disturbance in the
atmosphere surrounding it. It is creating negative vibrations.
These vibrations in turn automatically collect insentient atoms
and molecules from the universe which create a form around soul
and cloud its perception.
In the language of
the ancient sages of more than five thousand years ago, these
insentient particles were called karmas. According to this
philosophy, these karmas determine your form, frame, height, skin
texture, refinement, birthplace, state of health, and more. By
projecting certain states of mind sentient energy attracts from
the universe atoms of forms called rup, atoms of taste called rus,
atoms of odor called gandh, atoms of touch called sparsha. These
atoms are what constitute a person’s karmic make-up, from the
physical point of view. They account for the fact that no two
people are exactly a like.
When you know how
the vibrations of your emotions are working, you will not blame
anybody. You will know that your karmas are attracted to you not
because someone else is in control of you, but because of your own
passion. Formerly man would blame God or the gods for blessing
one and pucishing another, as though God were partial. Primitive
man would project his inner negative vibrations and fears onto
that in discriminating insentient energy or energies which he
understand how vibration work in action, reaction, and
interaction, and how form is the outcome, of your own vibrations
joined with vibrations from the universe, you will take your life
in your own hands, You will observe how anger attracts anger, how
feart invites fear, how greed begets greed. In other words, you
will observe how vibrations of one k9nd attract vibrations of a
like nature from the universe.
Once you begin to
understand energy, vibrations, and karmas in your own experience,
your own experience, your perception will change and with it, your
vibrations. By connecting your own individual form and life
pattern with mental and emotional tendencies within yourself, you
will become aware of how to change yuour vibrations from negative
to positive. You will know what want to become, and you will
determine your future journeuy by being aware of your hidden
power. You have freedom to destroy or create your future.
ever-changing, ever-fluid, the expression of living life. Therein
lies your freedom, your real hope. As light passes through a
prism, so energy penetrates living forms. By remembering to shed
the light of atma an atom, you will be able to transform
vibrations of ill will into amity, vibrations of jealousy into
appreciation, vibrations of callousness into compassion, and
vibrations of attraction or repulsion into equanimity.
Nourished by the
nutrients of healthy vibrations, the lotus of your consciousness
will unfold and lift itself to the height of which it is capable.
The closer you came to becoming one with your inner quest, the
more balanced and centered you will be.
The more unified from within, the more you will radiate outward
the awareness and bliss of your true nature.
“When you go on
watching your thoughts, your desires, your feelings, something
