I can’t get this image out of my head; what a threshold for Bruno to cross on so many different levels. For one to follow such a different religious path than existed in one’s upbringing (I’m presuming) and THEN to have that choice supported by those that were by necessity left behind with that choice is huge. Seeing this gives me courage to do the same in my life.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
