15. hridaye cittasamghattad drisyasvapadarsanam //

When his thoughts are diverted to the center of God consciousness, then he feels the existence of God consciousness in oneness in the objective world and in the world of negation.
The literal reading is "When all one's thoughts are diverted to the heart." Here the word heart (hridaye) does not mean our own physical heart. Rather, here the word "heart" means the light of consciousness (cit prakasa) which is the background, the basis, of the existence of the whole universe. On that basis, everything in this universe is moving, being born, dying, suffering, enjoying, smiling, laughing, marrying, etc. Everything has that center of God consciousness as its basis.

This yogi experiences the oneness of the existence of God consciousness in the objective world and in the world of negation. When does the experience of the negation of the objective world occur? The experience of the negation of the objective world takes place at the time of death and at the time of deep sleep. And, in these states also, the yogi effortlessly experiences the existence of God consciousness. How? The yogi accomplishes this by collecting his mind and putting it on that point. Although the mind is always flickering and does not exist in one point, through the practice (sadhana) of one-pointedness, it becomes easy for the yogi to maintain one point. He then discards the differentiation of objectivity and subjectivity and perceives the objective world, which consists not only of external objects but also of his body of wakefulness, his body of the dreaming state, and his body of the dreamless stat e (nila-deha-pranabuddhyatmanah), and the negation of these, which is the void state (Sunya), in its real way as the limbs of his universal body. When you make your mind enter into the light of consciousness then your mind feels this whole universe as one with that universal being.

This is said in Vijnana Bhairava:

O Parvati!, the one who, with one-pointedness, directs all his organs including his mind in the voidness of that heart, which is the light of consciousness, and remains in between the two lotuses of this-ness and I-ness, becomes glorified with God consciousness.
(Vijnana Bhairava 49)

By using the word "glory," this verse indicates that he becomes the ruler of everything that exists. In Svacchanda Tantra, such a yogi is defined as follows:

Such a yogi, situated as one with this whole universe, pervades it. Because he pervades everything which exists, all classes of beings in elements, in the organic world, in animate and inanimate objects, his consciousness is not called God consciousness but rather his God consciousness is transformed into Universal consciousness. (Svacchanda Tantra 4.310)

In the Spanda Karika, it is concluded in this verse:

Do not try to dwell in each and every being. Reside in your own self. When you reside in your self, you will reside in this whole universe because your real self is one with the universe. (Spanda Karika 3.7)
If you reside and are established in the existence of self, you will already be established in the universal self.

You will be amazed to find how much love rises and floods your being when you enter into meditation. Through meditation, you will experience a dimension of your being communicating with you, that you haven't touched before. when you experience lasting joy that no external circumstance can alter, it means that you are moving deeply inwards. You will want to share this joy with everyone you meet.

Just sit by yourself as soon as you wake up in the morning. Close your eyes and visualize that all your things belong to Existence. None of it is yours. Existence is so graceful that it allowed you to have it. Feel the gratitude flowing in you towards Existence. Experience this strongly and clearly. You will see, suddenly the whole thing takes a 180 degree turn. You will wonder what is really yours in the first place. Sannyas starts with gratitude.

Homes have to become incubation spaces which nurture the realization that ultimately, the only home a human being can really know is within. If you do not realize in this lifetime that the ultimate home is within, then the only home you will know will be the grave. This is an understanding that a home is constantly culturing us towards. What one person likes, another person dislikes, and vice versa. Still, because you live in the same home, you come to terms with that. You do not have to try to like it. Learning to live with things you do not like is a huge lesson in life. A home brings us to a place.

Mahadeva is totality of pure living vibrant Consciousness
with all the auspicious good qualities.
When you invoke him, he occupies you and radiate through you as Shivoham.
When he introduces himself to you - it is Authenticity
When he introduces himself through you to others - it is Enriching.

To put God above, you don’t need to put yourself down. Because prayer itself is a technique to break this non-duality. It is to break this non-dual perception, it is to break this non-dual existence! The lower inner image is the worst sin. If you are consciously asked to build that, it’s like you build your own cage where you will be locked.

When you say, "Shivoham" - "I am Shiva". You are surrendering you to Shiva, you are offering you to Shiva, you disappear into him, you relax into him, you rest into him! So, "Shivoham" is Maha Vaakya and Maha Mantra, both together.

Oneness is the Cosmic Currency. It is the principle, the spindle, which holds all 14 universes together. If you are habituated to think from Oneness, you will not feel any shock when faced with the unknown. Death to us is the unknown, if we would feel we know it, we would not be afraid of it. Fear of death is the fear of the unknown. Oneness makes that unknown known to you, you will be clear on where you are going and how you will function after death.

Everything in the universe is capable of storing, recording, retaining memory. Even a stone records and keeps the memory of how to respond if a powerful mass hits it. Even that response is recorded in the stone's muscle memory. In your life too, every step you go through, every thing you go through in your day to day life, you record in your muscles.

In the real surrender, you don’t exclude anything, you include everything.
You just experience the WHOLE. Surrender involves dropping fantasies and surrendering to reality. The true reality, the only truth, is that we are
part of the collective consciousness. When we have this awareness,
there is no room for the individual ‘I’ and ‘mine’ to rule our actions.

Seeking is the way God in you wakes up! In the early morning you yourself will remember that you are dreaming. That is the way you wake up. Same way, seeking is the way you wake up to your reality. After remembering you are dreaming, if you just turn and pull your blanket and sleep. How stupid you are. After having seeking, after smelling seeking in your life, after tasting seeking in your life, if you just turn and loose the intensity and seeking, anything can be lost. NOT SEEKING!

~ Shiva Sutras, The Supreme Awakening ~

9. nartaka atma //

The dancer in this field of universal dance is his self of universal consciousness.
What is this universal dance? It is everything that you experience in your life. It may be coming. It may be going. It may be birth, death, joy, sadness, depression, happiness, enjoyment. All of this forms part of the universal dance, and this dance is a drama. In this field of drama, the actor is your own nature, your own self of universal consciousness. This self of universal consciousness is the one who is aware, he is the actor in this universal drama. Those who are not aware are not actors; they are played in this drama. They experience sadness, they experience enjoyment, they become joyful, they become depressed.

But those who are aware, they are always elevated; they are the real players in this drama. So it is your own self of universal consciousness which is, in fact, the actor. Why? Because he acts. The actor is he who conceals his real nature. When you conceal the real nature of your being and, to the public, reveal another form of your being, that is the behavior of acting.
So, Lord Siva is the real actor. And although his nature of universal consciousness is concealed to the public, in fact, he knows that he is that reality. Actually, being filled with that awareness of universal God consciousness, he sometimes appears in the waking state, sometimes in the dreaming state, sometimes in the dreamless state, etc. This, however, is actually his play. It is not his real action. His real action is his being in his own universal God consciousness in each and every moment of revealing his differentiated forms. At the time of revealing his differentiated formation in the waking state, he diverts his universal consciousness in the state of wakefulness. And also in that state, he finds he is playing. Actually, this is play, he is not becoming that state. For although he has become the waking state, he has not actually become the waking state and he has not become the dreaming state or the state of deep sleep. In fact, he is already there in that universal God consciousness.

In the hymns composed by Devi contained in the seventh chapter of the Tantras known as the Naisvasa Devi Mahesvaranartakakhye it is said:
In one way, O Lord Siva, you are actually residing in your own nature, and yet you have put on different coverings. Covering that universal God consciousness in one way, it appears as wakefulness and covering it another way, it appears as the dreaming state or the state of deep sleep.
It is because of these coverings that this universal God consciousness is not found.

Bhattanarayana has also said in his Sastra, the Stavacintamani:

O Lord Siva you have present in your own self the germ of universal existence from which this universe has expanded. It is from this seed that you create the drama of the three worlds, the drama of waking state, the drama of the dreaming state and the drama of the state of deep sleep. O Lord, you create these three types of drama from the sprouting of that seed which is already residing in your real nature. This is only the course of your action of awareness. Who else can act in this way to create this drama and then withdraw it again? (Stavacintamani 59)

The Pratyabhijna Sastra, which expounds pratyabhijna, the way of recognition, the secret of all tantras, also says the same thing,
O Lord, in this world which is absolutely unaware of what is existing, only you are aware. You are the creator of the drama of this universe. You are unique and the one who is actually awake in this dreaming state. (Pratyabhijna Karika)

He has established the covering of the waking state, the covering of the dreaming state, and the covering of the dreamless state because he has to maintain the drama of the universe. It is for this reason that he takes good care of this covering. Otherwise, this covering has no meaning. Meaning only exists in universal God consciousness.
So, this entire universe is actually the result of a colossal universal drama which is taking place. And who is the hero in this drama? Here the part of the hero is played by the internal soul who is also the universal soul in disguise.

16. śuddha-tattva-saṁdhānādvā’paśuśaktiḥ //

Or by aiming at the pure element of Śiva, he possesses Śiva’s unlimited energy.

In the sūtra, “the pure element” (śuddha tattva) refers only to supreme Śiva. Now, what do we have to do with that? We have to make this universal objectivity enter in that supreme consciousness of pure Śiva. You must see that this universe is residing in that pure element. There you will never find any impure object. Everything will appear to you as divine.
When you target, which means “aim at,” and then perceive that this whole universe is existing in the pure state of Śiva, in this way you will discard and be separated from the entangling energy that binds you with the wheel of differentiated perception. Instantly, you will become one with this universal state that is just like the pure element of Śiva (sadāśiva) and you will become master of the universe.

This is also said in Lakṣmīkaulārṇava Tantra:

The yogic powers which are attained with the perfection of an initiation from a great master, when compared with this supreme universal consciousness, are not equal to its sixteenth part. These yogic powers are nothing in comparison. They are all to be discarded. You have only to own and maintain this universal-I (mantra vīrya).

That is called saṁdhāna. The Sanskrit word saṁdhāna means “aiming.” Aiming and entry, aiming and enjoying, aiming and feeling, aiming and attaining. And it is not only aiming, for this is just what we do when we meditate. We may meditate for one hour, two hours or three hours and during this time, we are always aiming, aiming, aiming. We are only aiming. But we have to aim once and for all. Aim and attain it. That is what is called saṁdhāna (aiming).

The Vijñāna Bhairava also speaks in the same way:

With one-pointed attention, you must feel and perceive that this universe and your body are simultaneously one with God consciousness. Then the rise of that supreme God consciousness takes place. (Vijñāna Bhairava 36)
This is also explained in Spanda Kārikā in this verse:
For such a yogī who has this kind of perception, this world is a playground. Always filled with joy, he is never sad. Doubtlessly, he is liberated while living (jīvan mukta). (Spanda Kārikā 2.5)

Whenever, you experience past, even if you have a body, you are not alive. You may be living but you are not alive. Whenever you experience future, you may be envisioning, fantasizing, but you are not alive.

It is only when your prescience touches the present, you are alive. The more your prescience touches the present you will be joyful, alive, spiritual.

The more presence meets the present the karma patterns will be broken.

Patterns are only matter and matter has mass and weight. Please listen. Even a very very slight magnetic wave change on planet earth; slight change in gravitational force, can suddenly make so much of free space in you. If you know how to handle the free space in you, you will just fall into un-clutching - Enlightenment. Your bio-memory and muscle memory will become pure. But if you don't know how to handle the vacuum inside, you will fall into loneliness. More depression, more suffering and more feeling unknown with life.
