Have you seen a Fireball? 

Don’t imagine Fireball Whiskey!

A ball of fire. Fire has no shape, then how could it be a ball? We see fire in ball shape but with intellect understand that it is a red hot iron ball in fire. 

Humans in general are extroverts, active in capturing knowledge of different subjects with the help of inner cause (antahkaran: man-buddhi-chitta-ahankar: mind-intellect-memory-ego) following the vritti- the waves or ripples of disturbance upon the mind. The antahkarana and it’s waves are jada, the dead. But with the reflection of the chetan, the consciousness, it looks live like the fireball. It is not the iron, the dead giving the light, but the fire/light is reflecting through the iron ball, the antahkarana. The Jada/dead looks alive because of the reflection of the consciousness over it. 

But this vriti can be the mean to reach to the consciousness, when it is turned introvert. Generally, we are attached to these waves, therefore, unable to differentiate the waves and I. But once we start observing these waves, we can easily realise our separation from the waves. Without consciousness, the wave can’t give us knowledge of consciousness. The reflection reminds us it’s reason, the consciousness. 

Our eyes can’t see our face without the mirror. But looking at the mirror image, with or without mirror, we accept the knowledge of our face. Similarly, with the observation of the reflections of consciousness over the waves, we can realise the existence. 

The waves covered with consciousness is indirect, as there is obstruction of wave/mirror. Pure consciousness is neither Pratyaksh (in front of eye, empirical) nor Paroksh (away from eye) but it is Aproksh (transcendental). It is knowledge of a face without a mirror. The ripples get knowledge of subjects due to the reflection of the consciousness, it is a mirror image. But the root of it, is the pure consciousness. 

What is consciousness? We realise but can’t explain. Because we don’t need any evidence to prove our existence. Pure consciousness can’t be the subject matter of the ripples or mind. But with continuous chintan/thinking of the light/consciousness/knowledge, the ripples disappear and the vriti becomes brahmakar. 

Each vriti/ripple/wave of the antahkarana is the message of the chetan/consciousness. The vriti is the gateway to know the self, the witness of all the ripples. Without I/He/Self/consciousness, knowledge of subjects and objects is not possible. Knowledge/Gyan is the chetan/consciousness; and each event of knowledge prove the presence of consciousness/existence. Therefore, whole universe is He, the existence, the knowledge, the consciousness only. Universe doesn’t exist without knowledge/consciousness. 

There is no difference like my Chaitanya and your Chaitanya or his/her Chaitanya. The Chaitanya, consciousness of all is One only, the witness, the gyan, the base of everything. 

There is only one way to reach there. By introvert path of watching, analysing and witnessing the chitta vritis and observing the source of it’s light. Slowly slowly, the vriti/pratibmba disappears and the Brahman/Bimba realise. Who realises whom? He is the Sindhu where Bindu disappears. 

ॐ  ब्रह्मानन्दं परमसुखदं केवलं ज्ञानमूर्तिं
द्वन्द्वातीतं गगनसदृशं तत्त्वमस्यादिलक्ष्यम् ।
एकं नित्यं विमलमचलं सर्वधीसाक्षिभूतं
भावातीतं त्रिगुणरहितं सद्गुरुं तं नमामि ॥

It is a Spiritual addiction beyond the reach of the Fireball Whiskey!!! Lol.
