Not religion, not yoga, not philosophy (Chatting with Subal)


[2012/9/29 (Subal)]

Thank you for these two texts. I especially resonated with the part "transcending even spirituality, which is a search in and of itself."

Also the second text... I knew in Quantum physics the observer affects the quality and behaviour of reality BUT I never equated it with maya. It does of course make perfect sense that it is so.

Thanks again!
Subal

Yes, transcending spirituality. Just like Krishna Consciousness is neither religion nor yoga  it's just consciousness of What Is. But since this means The Supreme Person, surrender, and devotion, it will look like "religion". And since the purification of one's consciousness is a process, and includes spiritual knowledge, it will look like "yoga"... Neither is it "philosophy". But since it is a systematic science, expounding an idea (the Truth lol), it will look like that. But it's just about love of Godhead — Krishna Prema. Eternal, ecstatic, ever increasing... Or self-realization, the full meaning of it.

Well, quantum physics — what's physics about? Material energy. In sanskrit (and with a deeper understanding): maya... But I didn't connect to that until just recently.
