Thank you David for that response. It prompts me to add that if it weren’t for my coming across the Merging with Siva and Loving Ganesa books on a friend’s shelf I would not be “a spiritual person”. Not only did his words get me back to seeking God but finding out that He was Siva, of all things. If someone would have told me I would become a Hindu even two years ago…..
Love and Light to Gurudeva, Satguru Bodhinatha, and all the Swamis and Sadhakas that made it possible for me to discover and to GROW into the within.
The soul body plus the essence of the soul, Parashakti and Parasiva, together equals the totality of the soul. The essence of the soul is being Siva and the soul body is becoming Siva. The soul body is maturing, growing. We suffer until we learn to control our body, mind and emotions achieving imperturbability even if we find out the world is going to end tomorrow. Calmness is a platform for meditation.
