A Bit Of Play
In the Divine game, One becomes many. Only the One exists, as truth, as consciousness, light and love. Bit the play scripted by the Divine is one where not only does One become many but many become One. Oceans, rivers, mountains, streams, everything is One manifested as many.
The ocean has numerous waves, can we say that each wave has an identity independent of the ocean? The identity of the wave exists because of the ocean, just as life exists because of the Divine. Each sun ray exists because of the sun. Therefore, to declare,"This is my life" has no meaning. Because with forgetfulness and ignorance, the ray forgets that it came from the sun, and starts imagining that it is separate. Our situation is similar. As human beings we forget our origins and end up saying "This is mine", or that "I exist". It is the ego that makes you say so.
One becomes many, and the many live on in ignorance. No sooner do they lose their ignorance, than they will feel that they are part of the one, the only One which exists, and exists everywhere.
Our ever-hungry senses use forgetfulness to break up the unity, rendering us players in the game of becoming many. Our senses are playing the game to divide us with ideas like "This is yours and this is mine."
What we are doing in our lives, from morning to evening is to divide, this is my emotion, this my idea, this is my life, this is your life, this is my thing, this is your thing, this is my country, this is your country. We are only dividing, and who is playing the game? Your senses, because in truth, they are exploiting your unconsciousness, they are taking advantage of your forgetfulness.
Each soul is a Divine spark like a sun ray, so the soul has no right to say that it is something separate, but because of ego and ignorance we move far away from truth. And the more we divide, the farther we go, distancing ourselves from truth and reality.
What is the opposite of the game of truth? Everything on this earth has an identity, knowledge of life comes through identity. All life is about contact, that is the work of our senses, to contact and express. The deeper the contact, the deeper the understanding about the thing you come in contact with. We have to teach our senses that instead of making superficial contact they have to go deep and establish deeper contact with everything, so that we come to realise that superficial knowledge arises out of ignorance. Only when you go deep in things, you can find true knowledge. Then it is possible to understand the game, and so play it better and know more.
When you feel you are nothing, you will be drawing closer to yourself and recognise the day you started growing with this identity of being nothing. Knowledge that you are nothing and the identity that comes with it will connect you with your true Self and so make it possible to connect with the biggest identity-Zero. The Zero is bigger than nothing, in this we will be a full circle, complete, you will then acquire the right attitude to life because that is what we truly are-Zero. When you are complete and in true with completion, you achieve Zero Hood, so to speak, a state that reveals nothingness---the Divine state.
