The continuous quest Who Am I?, guided by the grace of Sri Bhagavan, who is always with us, will lead one to the heart center, the seat of Consciousness, which is neither within nor without, all pervading and eternal. This supreme awareness is all that IS, and abiding therein is the ultimate goal.

Let us now have a look at recent developments in scientific knowledge. At one time the world around us was supposed to consist of matter, made of molecules and atoms. Physicists chased them further and broke them down to nucleus, electrons, quanta, waves, particles, and fields. Einstein said that the universe of our experience consists of matter and energy in a space-time-continuum. He established the famous equation E = mc2, where C is a constant representing the velocity of light. Matter and energy became interchangeable. Max Planck, famous for his quantum theory, added a further dimension to this, stating that it is consciousness that is fundamental and that matter is a derivative of consciousness. As a corollary even space and time are only concepts of our conscious- ness. Thus scientists are veering round to the conclusion that since every object is a sum of its qualities and these qualities are perceived by us, the whole objective universe of matter and energy, atoms and stars does not exist except as a construction of consciousness.

Yoga Vashista says: "All things that exist everywhere are experienced by us; there is nothing here anywhere which has not been experienced by us."

Bhagavan has told us that the world as such is not real. It is real as Brahman or Consciousness. The world we see and experience with our senses is a product of the mind; the mind is a part of the ego, which rises from Pure Consciousness, which is the same as Reality. One has to realize That and just Be.

Swami Siddeswarananda had a long long talk with Bhagavan Ramana.
Bhagavan Ramana said that both matter and energy are only Sivam
and its briliance, the dance of Siva.  How can the Self, the Matter,
which is achala, non moving, dance?  It is advaitic paradox.  It is
its brilliance that shines and appears as dancing or moving.

Om Sri Rachitachala Tandavaya Namah:

(Sri Ramana Ashottaram)

Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan Ramana never waited for anybody to have chittasuddhi,
pure mind to come to Him and do sadhana.  He took them as they
were, no preconditions at all.  Once a lady coolie and a gentleman
laborer, were having some affairs and the Sarvadhikari terminated
their services for this act of impurity inside the Asramam.  Bhagavan
Ramana was not consulted.  But He knew the decision.   Next morning, when He was coming down from the Hill, He saw two dogs were
vigorously copulating.  There were some devotees with Him.  He told them, after looking at the dogs: "Now, what to do with these dogs?
Who can confer punishment to them?  How can anyone 'terminate'
their services?"

I bow to Him, the Hill of Fire,
This ant goes near Him to kiss,
He accepts this ant as it is,
And burns it sooner or later.

Arunachala Siva.
