The Quest has begun...

This will an assortment of events, activities, opinions and anything under the sun that catches my attention..

Few good questions...

Having found a GURU in my life, it has undergone a lot of changes. Over the last one year, I have been listening to knowledge, doing service and loved being in satsang. Listening to knowledge from Guruji has been completely irresistible always. Some questions came up in me and I am waiting for the answers...

P.S - I am using the word 'we' since I have observed this happen with almost everyone.

1. We listen to some knowledge and we understand it to a certain extent. We listen to it again say after 6 months and something clicks. We seem to understand a wee bit more than the last time. Yes? Why does this happen? What change has our conciousness undergone in those 6 months? Has it gained something or has it lost?

2. It is said there is only one conciousness and all of us being a part of it. But then why does someone understand more/less than you after listening to the same knowledge? In this case is there any difference in the conciousness between us?

Any answers?

Nice to hear these questions.
You are right, there is only one being and that is everywhere and in all things. But because of the mind, it creates an illusion that we are something different. This mind tells us we are separate. It is because of this mind that we understand more or less. That is why if you have observed, if you listen to knowledge after doing your kriya or sahaj or any other yoga, the knowledge seems to sink into you much deeper. The mind and the intellect generally acts like a filter and starts judging saying 'Yes' or 'No' to what we hear. So this is why we understand knowledge differently at different situations.

I got this reply from one of the senior teachers -
Consciousness does not change. Your awareness keeps on changing. Your awareness depends n many factors for eg Sadhna, seva, seva satsang, past karmas, food, environment, planetary positions, your connection with the Guru etc etc. The more is your awareness the deeper is your understanding of the knowledge and the closer you feel to the unchanging consciousness within you.

Though the conscious ness is the same everywhere it depends on how much you have awakeend it within you. We have to do Self Effort to wake up the God within.. He is sleeping inside all of us.
