Dive deeply...
« on: July 11, 2008, 01:03:43 AM »
Sri Ramana often mentionned to "dive deeply" in the self. Of course he didn't mean to focalise at the "heart" region, or any particular "place" in the body. What is your comprehension on this.
Oh Arunachala, blazing fire of Jnana, in my heart I pray and think of Thee from afar, root out the ego, merging me in the Self.

Dear nonduel, "diving deeply" means dwelling in the Heart, where
Brahman or the Self or Guru Ramana is ever.  He is already pulling
to merge in His place or Guru outside is pushing you to merge in
His place.  Arunachala Siva.

At present we are in a state of relative consciousness which involves act of knowing because of seeming separation between the subject and the object.
In self-enquiry the path and goal are thought-free self-conscious being without mistaking ourselves as thinking mind,so it is a nondual state without knower and the known.
The only way we experience self is by being it in which awareness is aware of itself which is called diving deep into self.We feel as though we are drawn by
a very powerful magnet.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju,  Diving deeply is taking the "I thought"
to the Heart, the Self.  Diving is pushing inward.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear subramanian,
                         Only when we take body bound mind as the basis for our existence there is going in and going out,diving in etc.When the attention in "I"thought is attracted towards an object it becomes an object knowing consciousness.When the same attention is not attracted to anything and
it remains without any seeming movement it becomes self consciousness.Going in is not literally going in,it is stopping going out,then we will be established
in self-conscious being which is called diving into the heart.By the time "I"thought touches the self-conscious being(heart)it loses it's nature as a separate entity apart from the heart.The "I"thought is never separate from the heart even when it feels that it has a separate existence.

Dear DRPVSSN Raju,  You have yourself said:  Diving in, is going
in, or in other words, preventing going out.  Bhagavan used specifically
the word 'diving in' in Who am I? and He even quoted the metaphor
of the pearl divers "diving in" to fetch pearls.  Hence the usage
'diving in' is not mine but Bhagavan's.

Arunachala Siva.
