Godly concepts & Choices
Man Creates God in his own mould
Every man lives in one of the seven chakas, the energy centers. If you are in the lowest level, that is the Muladhara chakra, you are caught in lust and desire. You worship a God who can grant all your boons. That is why God is understood as a giver of boons and is very popular. People are caught up in fantasy, expectations and desires and whoever fulfils these becomes their God. The moment they miss giving a single boon, their Gods will get dethroned!
Next is the person who caught in the Swadishthana chakra. You worship the God who gives confidence, who you believe will take care of you; you go behind the idols that have many weapons and many hands. You experience God as a protector. The third level person stays in the Manipuraka chakra. You continuously worry and remain confused. You worship the God who gives clarity and peace. Next is the person who lives in the Anahata chakra. Here, you are attracted towards the God who showers love on you. You worship the God who gives emotional fulfillment. Next, if you are raised to the level of the Vishuddhi chakra, the God of creativity or Energy appeals to you. You experience God as the creator. If you are centred in the Ajna chakra, you are locked in ego. Somebody in the egoless state attracts you: rishis, seers, sages, prophets and Master attract you. The egoless man becomes your idol.
That is why it is said that man creates God in his own mould! You simply relate to God or the Masters from these six levels; a relationship doesn’t happen-you simply reduce them to mere mortals. You have a concept in your mind and you are demanding from them that concept-its is simply a monologue.
In the Ajna chakra, the dialogue starts. Only in the Sahasrara chakra, the communion happens! If you understand you are actually relating to your Gods and Master from these charkra and that you need to go beyond this and catch the transcendental expression of the Divine, all your problems will dissolve! When you are in the Muladhara chakra, the Master drills into you like a crowbar. At a little higher level, he is like a knife penetrating you. At the level of the Sahastra chakra, he is like a fragrance! If you are alert and aware, the Master can transform you. You just need to be passive for the alchemy to happen. If you are alert and aware, you can catch the smell and experience it!
GOD, PHYSICS AND PHILOSOPHY
The great development of natural science since the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was preceded and accompanied by a development of philosophical ideas which were closely connected with the fundamental concepts of science. It may therefore be instructive to comment on these ideas from the position that has finally been reached by modern science in our time.
The first great philosopher of this new period of science was Rene Descartes who lived in the first half of the seventeenth century. Those of his ideas that are most important for the development of scientific thinking are contained in his Discourse on Method. On the basis of doubt and logical reasoning he tries to find a completely new and solid ground for a philosophical system. He does not accept revelation as such a basic nor does he want to accept uncritically what is perceived by the senses. So he starts with his method of doubt. He casts his doubt upon that which our senses tell us about the results of our reasoning and finally he arrives at his famous sentence: Cogito ergo sum. I cannot doubt my existence since it follows from the fact that I am thinking. After establishing the existence of the I in this way he proceeds to prove the existence of God essentially on the lines of scholastic philosophy. Finally the existence of the world follows from the fact that God had given me a strong inclination to believe in the existence of the world……
