Shivratri Quotes – Thoughts on Mahashivaratri

Mahashivratri is a night of many possibilities. It is the darkest night of the month. Its very darkness is cause for celebration. Normally, we tend to resist darkness and opt for light. On Shivratri, however, darkness is venerated as the symbol of creation and destruction. The word Shiva literally means that which is not. That which is, is existence; that which is, is creation. That which is not is Shiva. That which is not means, if you open your eyes and look around, if your vision is for small things, you will see lots of creation. If your vision is really looking for big things, you will see that the biggest presence in existence is a vast emptiness. Just a few spots – which we call galaxies – are noticed, not the vast emptiness that holds. This vastness or unbounded emptiness is Shiva. When we say Shiva, we are referring to this vast emptiness of existence. It is in the lap of this vast emptiness that all Creation has happened. Our ancient prayers are not about saving

Calming The Mind – Lake Example

Picture the mind as a calm lake stretched before you. See the thoughts that come and go as bubbles rising and breaking on its surface. Make no effort to control the thoughts, but watch them and follow them in imagination as they float away. Hold to the idea, ‘I am not the mind, I see that I am thinking, I am watching my mind act. (Swami Vivekananda) Hold fast to the idea, I am the witness watching my mind drifting. The mind is not I. See it as a thing entirely apart from yourself. Identify yourself with God, never with matter or with the mind. This mindfulness meditation is somehow calming and centering; the meditator is not whisked away by every thought. Correspondingly, one’s breathing becomes slower and steadier, and, in the process, the meditator gains a certain sense of detachment and self-mastery — a feeling of well-being that can be palpably felt. The meditator cannot help but notice that during the meditation there are two minds, as it were, operating: the observer mind a
