Can anyone climb on the top of this pyramid without following the steps or stairs? The answer is a NO. So then how can we attain self realisation without all our materialistic wishes being materialized?
Let us understand in a point wise manner why Baba ji lays so much stress on the pet phrase of his which goes "tum chahtey kya ho" .
1. The phrase is an interrogative one which means "What do you desire?"Or "What are your wishes?"
2. In reality we all have taken birth to complete the give and take with our family members, our friends, our society and the nation.
3. When a soul enters a human body and arrives on this Earth which is at the 3rd dimension it is lured by many materialistic wishes like having a good family, a good fortune, a great spouse, a great home to live in, great food to relish so on and so forth depending upon an individual's wishes.
4. The soul now becomes the bodily soul meaning the jeev atma which considers the physical body as its real identity.
5. So now apart from give and take the soul has materialistic wishes which are added to the pending tasks of the soul.
6. If these "pending tasks" or wishes (like a good spouse, financial strength etc) are not fulfilled the soul will have to acquire a human body again and come back to this Earth after this life all over again in a new form. And it is not necessary that in the next birth you will get an Avdhoota to guide you. Also you may not necessarily take the human form. You may become a lion, a cat a lizard or any other animal and then the cycle of karma will start again and after 84 births we will come back as humans. We all don’t want to enter in this cycle do we?
7. The agenda of every soul is ascension and merger with the divine light which can happen only after all the worldly wishes are fulfilled.
8. Spirituality or Shiv Yog in particular prophesises that to reach towards God, it is mandatory for our souls to complete the "pending tasks" or materialistic wishes.
9. This is best understood by the Mescal’s law of hierarchy. Baba ji says that the wishes decrease as our consciousness rises. This is best understood by any person's life. As a child you need toys to complete your world. Then as the child grows to a boy, the wishes change to computer games from that of toys. As the boy turns to an adult the need is for a great wife a good home, a great family etc. And as you get older the previous wishes tend to change.
The path towards ascension can be described by this pyramid.
i) As the worldly desires and wishes are materialized, satisfaction creeps in and with rise of consciousness the wishes become less and less and when the consciousness reaches at a high level, the Third eye opens up and the journey of the smaller triangle begins.
ii) Observe the fact that the second journey i.e. the final journey towards God after all wishes have come true and when the third eye opens is a very short one and easy too. The hard part is reaching the smaller triangle.
iii) The second journey takes place when the consciousness or the Kundalini reaches the Vishuddhi chakra or (throat chakra) to begin the journey towards the Sehastrar chakra (or crown chakra).
IV) This pyramid begins at the base with "tum chahtey kya ho?"
10. So as Shiv Yogis we are taught never to curb any desire except of course if it is greed or lust.
11. As our "chah" or wish is materialized, the sense of accomplishment will drive us to thank God and move on to a successful life and eventually to self realisation when the only desire left will be meditation and merger with the infinite.
The Golden book with the Shree yantra printed on each page and metal yantras which are kept by us on its cover and at the back help fast materialization of the wishes and give us an easy way to reach the top of the spiritual triangle.
SO WRITE DOWN ALL YOUR WISHES IN THE GOLDEN BOOK AND START MATERIALIZATION NOW.
Do remember that meditation without aim is like a ship without its destination. You will get lost in the ocean so streamline your energy in your wishes to reach the top of the triangle. So make a Golden book and read it before and after every sadhana.
