Delight in these meditations, my Adored One.
Play with creation as it plays with you.

Playing, become smaller than an atom,
Travel through the expanse of space,
Drink the elixir of immortality.

Bathe in the stream of these life-giving teachings.
Flirt with the tingling sparks of vitality
Surging through your body.
Live your whole life as a festival, a celebration,
Liberated in love and work.

Breath flows in, breath flows out,
Traveling always the curving path of the Goddess.
Breath flows spontaneously of its own will.
Thus all breathing beings
Continually worship Her.
Be conscious of this unconscious prayer,
For She is the most holy place of pilgrimage.

She wishes for you to enter this temple,
Where each breath is adoration
Of the infinite for the incarnate form.

The flowers, the incense,
Grain, spices, and honey
Offered in worship
Are made out of the same divine stuff as you.
Who then is worshiped?

Cast aside the ten thousand things,
And love only one.
Don't go on to another.

Engage your lively awareness
With this one focus--
One object, one thought, one symbol.
Now go inside.
Find the center,
The soul, the heart.

Right here,
In the middle of the feeling,
Attend the blossoming--
Attention vast as the sky.

That space is bad,
This space is good,
The ride is tough,
Or the going is smooth.
We are thrown into suffering,
We are thrown into joy.

Beloved Soul Mate--
Find the space in the center,
The shimmering spaciousness
Encompassing all opposites.

Here the essences of creation are at play:
Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space,
And the senses that perceive them.
The center is the dancing ground.

Close the ears that track the outer world,
Open the ears of the soul.
Engage the muscles at the base of the pelvis,
The intimate special places,
And cherish the vibrating energies there contained.

The song of creation,
Sustaining, enlivening,
Is thrumming in your body,
Whispering secrets.
Listen in.

Meditating on the symphony of your own life currents,
Enter the shimmering palace of the Creator.

"Vijnanabhairava Tantra"

Trees have desires.
Rocks have knowledge.
Jugs are full of emptiness and joy.

All embodied ones have this in common.
All are propelled by the same One
Whose pulse beats in your breast.

Shed insularity,
Be all-pervasive,
Delighting in kinship everywhere.

Wherever your heart journeys,
On whatever expedition
In your outer life and
Secret inner realms,
Breathe in intimacy with infinity.

Where can you go to avoid
The One in Whom All Exists?

Reach down into your deepest being.
Take a stand in eternity.

Walk through this world, see every situation
As an expansion of the mystery.
Savor the tremble of recognition--
The God in you is touching the God out there.

Extend your awareness
Into the bodies of other living beings,
Feel what those others are feeling.

Leave aside your body and its needs,
Abandon being so local.

Day by day, constrictions will loosen,
As you become attuned
To the current of life
Flowing through us all.

Verse 120

' O goddess, if one , after casting one's gaze on some object, withdraws it and slowly eliminates the knowledge of that object along with the thought and impression of it, he abides in the void. '

When sleep has not yet come,
And the sweet buzz of exhaustion
Permeates the body...
Linger in the Ahhhh of relief
As your head touches the pillow.

Everything in you is yearning to let go,
So let go, let your body fall
Into something deeper then sleep.
With your mind, enter
The soft luminous glow of the Soul.

All around you, in every moment,
The world is offering a feast for your senses.
Songs are playing, tasty food is on the table,
Fragrances are in the air.
Colors fill the eye with light.

You who long for union,
Attend this banquet with loving focus.
The outer and inner worlds
Open to each other.
Oneness of vision, oneness of heart.

Right here, in the midst of it all,
Merge with the elation
Become identical
With the ecstatic Essence
Embracing both worlds.

Lord Shiva instructs Goddess Parvati.

O supreme goddess, sacrifice in this system simply means spiritual satisfaction characterized by Bliss. O Parvati, the absorption into the Sakti of Rudras is alone real 'kstera' ( place of pilgrimage ) inasmuch as this absorption destroys all sins and protects all. This constitutes the highest contemplation. Otherwise in the case of the (non-dual) Reality, how can there be any worship and who is it that is to be gratified ?

SPANDA KARIKAS

SECTION 2

VERSE 6 - 7

This only is the manifestation of the object of meditation in the meditator's mind that the aspirant with resolute will has the realization of his identity with that ( object of meditation ).
This alone is the acquisition of ambrosia leading to immortality; this alone is the realization of Self; this alone is the initiation of liberation leading to identity with Shiva.

" DIVINE CREATIVE PULSATION "

VERSE 20

These (the gunas etc), however, intent on veiling their real nature push the people of unawakened intellect into the terrible ocean of transmigratory existence from which it is difficult to pull them out.

VERSE 149

" One should pour into the fire of the Highest Consciousness all the elements, senses, and the objects of sense together with mind ( that creates all these divisions ) . This is real 'homa' ( oblation ). The ( Self-inquuiring ) consciousness is the ladle ( with which this oblation is to be preformed ). "

VIJNANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA

VERSE 65

The Yogi should contemplate the entire universe or his own body simultaneously* in its totality as filled with his ( essential, spiritual ) bliss**. Then through his own ambrosia***-like bliss, he will become identified with the supreme bliss.

* - Simultaneously (yugapat) means "with totality of attention,' in one sweep of attention, not in bits.

** - "His own bliss" means "his own essential spiritual or divine bliss" (cidananda), not the pleasure derived from sense-objects.

*** - The word "mrtena" or ambrosia points to the fact that there is no change in this bliss. It is Eternal.

Those devotees of the guru, who are without the slightest
doubt or hesitation, O gazelle-eyed one, having renounced son, wife, relatives, home, village, kingdom and country,
should be accepted for initiation.

The (worldly accoutrements) are all temporary, O Goddess,
but this supreme wealth is everlasting.

One may give up even one's prana (life energy), but this
teaching which is the supreme nectar should never be given
up. The auspicious goddess said: O great Lord Shankara,
God of gods, I am now fully satisfied.

Today I have understood the quintessence of Rudrayamala
Tantra and also the heart (innermost core) of all the
different shaktis.

Thus saying, the goddess being steeped in delight
embraced Shiva.

O Goddess, this most excellent teaching, which is said to
lead to the immortal state, should verily not be revealed to
anybody.

These teachings should not be disclosed to other disciples,
to those who are evil and cruel, or to those who have not
surrendered to the feet of the guru. They should only be
revealed to advanced souls, who are self-controlled and
whose minds arc lice of vikalpas.

One's own self is verily the all-pervasive bliss of freedom
and the essence of consciousness. Absorption into that
nature or form of one's own self is said to be the real bath
(purification).

By being established in any one of the practices (described)
here, whatever (experience) is produced, develops day by
day until the state of absolute fullness or satisfaction is
attained.
The real oblation is (made) when the elements and sense
perceptions along with the mind are poured as oblation
into the fire of the great void (i.e. bhairava or supreme
consciousness) using the consciousness as a ladle.
O supreme Goddess, Parvati, here the sacrifice
characterized by bliss and satisfaction becomes the saviour
of all by the destruction of all sins.

Offering of flowers, etc. is not pooja, or worship, but
making one's mind steady in mahakasha, the great void,
(and thoughtless) in nirvikalpa is worship indeed. From
such reverence, dissolution (of mind) takes place.

When the intellect becomes steady, formless and without
any support, meditation is verified. Imagination of the form
of the divine with a body, eyes, mouth, hands, etc. is not
meditation

People talk about mind and ego.
Let’s just drop this whole conversation.

Consider instead:
There is no mind.
There is no ego.
There is only the incandescent reality.
At play, beckoning.

One should concentrate with an unwavering mind on all
existence, the body and even the universe simultaneously
as nothing but consciousness, then the supreme consciousness
arises.

One should fix his gaze on a treeless place, like bare
mountains or rocks, where there is no support for the mind
to dwell on. Then the modifications of the mind become
less and the experience of dissolution takes place.
