Adventures in Advaita Vedanta, the philosophy and science of spirit. We are one you and I; are you curious why?..


Here is a place to linger, to let your intellect roam. Aatmaavrajanam is being written as a progressive study and, as such, can be read like a book. Anyone arriving at any time can simply start at the very first post and work their way through at their own pace. Please take time to read the info tabs and ensure you don't miss a post, by subscribing to the blog. Interaction is welcomed. Don't be a spectator - be a participator!

Step On Up

'Freedays' are the 'gather our thoughts' days; Q&As; a general review of the week so far…

Each of the posts this week have stepped up the pointers to dealing with an every-crazy world; learn to withdraw. Practice being in the world but not of it. Oh yes, easily said and all that; but each small step made in a direction, made and re-made, will take one along a path. What has to be sorted is which path is being chosen. It is also good to know that one can change paths. It might mean a bit of 'cross-country', rough-under-foot work, but it can be done.

The spiritual path is not necessarily the easiest path, for it requires dedication and determination. The head can know what is right, but the body can be fighting it. The intellect can be working out plausible excuses for why saadhana is not being done.

Until such time as Realisation of Self is ours, we must be ever watchful of ourselves. At no time must we become complacent or lazy. It is much easier to fall down a hillside than it is to climb it. Then, what measures us, is our ability to stand up, dust off and begin the climb again. Miss  no steps, make each step firm before taking the next. Each of those steps will yield rewards of quality. The further one goes, the greater the rewards. Set your goals. Reach for them.
