14–17. Mystical ecstasy isn’t subject to dualistic thought, it is completely free from any notion of location, space, or time. This truth can only be touched by experience. It can only be reached by those entirely freed from duality and ego, and firmly, fully established in the consciousness of the Self. This state of Bhairava is filled with the pure bliss of unity between tantrika and the universe. Only this state is the Shakti. In the reality of one’s own nature thus recognized, containing the entire universe, one reaches the highest sphere. Who then could be worshipped? Who then could be fulfilled by this worship? Only this condition recognized as supreme is the great Goddess.

18–19. Since there is no difference between the Shakti and the one who embodies her, nor between substance and object, the Shakti is identical to the Self. The energy of the flames is nothing but the fire. All distinction is but a prelude to the path of true knowledge.

20–21. The one who reaches the Shakti grasps the nondistinction between Shiva and Shakti and enters the door to the divine. As space is recognized when illuminated by sun rays, so Shiva is recognized through the energy of Shakti, which is the essence of the Self.

22–23. Bhairavi: O supreme Shiva! You who bears a trident and a garland of skulls, how to reach the absolute plenitude of the Shakti that transcends all notions, all descriptions and abolishes time and space? How to realize this nonseparation from the universe? In what sense is it said that the supreme Shakti is the secret door to the state of Bhairava? Can you answer in common language these absolute questions?

24. Bhairava: The supreme Shakti reveals herself when inbreath and outbreath are born and die at the two extreme points, top and bottom. Thus, between two breaths, experience infinite space.

Native of eternity.
At home in infinity.
Breathing immortality.

Let these words sing in every cell.

Abundance of splendor.
Luminous energies of creation,
Pulsing everywhere always.

What could these astounding
words mean?

Meditate on them continually,
Let the impulses ripple through you.

Resonate with the all-pervading
hum of truth
And know,
Every fleeting moment is
Supported by forever.

119. When the sight of a certain place brings back memories, let your mind relive these instants; then, when memories fade away, one step further, know omnipresence.

120. Look at an object, then slowly withdraw your eyes. Then withdraw your thoughts and become the receptacle of ineffable plenitude.

121. The intuition that springs from the intensity of passionate devotion flows into space, frees you and lets you attain to the domain of Shiva/Shakti.

122. Attention focused on a single object, you penetrate any object. Relax then in the spatial plenitude of your own Self.

Toss aside your map of the world,
All your beliefs and constructs.
Dare the wild unknown.
Here in this terrifying freedom,
Naked before the universe,
Commune with the One
Who knows everything from the inside:
Invisible power pervading everywhere.
Divine Presence permeating everything.
Breath tenderly as
The lover of all beings.

124. Understand that the spatial reality of Bhairava is present in every thing, in every being, and be this
reality.

125. Happiness resides in equality between extreme feelings. Reside in your own heart and attain to plenitude.

126. Free yourself from hatred as well as from attachment. Then, knowing neither aversion nor bond, slip into the divine inside your own heart.

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?

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 ). "

This body is sustained by altars
To the radiant nectar of life--
Around you, an ocean of air
Ready to become your breath.
Above the head, the glow of an invisible sun.
Within the spaciousness of the heart,
A pulsing throb of creation,
Where the breaths meet, fuse
And transform into each other.

Whenever, wherever your mind wanders,
Whatever you wonder,
Return to the luminous.
Choose any altar; imbibe its energy as you journey.
Throw your attention again and again
Into one of these centers where spirit and flesh
Consummate their love.
Day by day, old whirlpools fade, the endless circles.
You are living in the temple of essence.

In the great joy of seeing
A loved one after a long absence,
A flash of recognition ignites you.
Space becomes charged,
The bond between you shimmers,
And a surge of delight arises in your being.

Find within you the source of this surge.
Melt into that place of upwelling,
A wave rolling in a vast ocean of delight.

Sting of a wasp
Rip of a nail
A razor’s slice
The needle’s plunge.

A piercing word
A stab of betrayal
The boundary crossed
A trust broken.

In this lacerating moment
Pain is all you know.
Life is tattooing scripture into your flesh,
Scribing incandescence in your nerves.
Right here
In this single searing point
Of intolerable concentration,
Wound becomes portal.
Dive through to the wild brilliance of the Self.

Wherever, whenever you feel carried away,
Rejoicing in every breath,
There, there is your meditation hall.

Cherish those times of absorption—
Rocking the baby in the silence of the night
Pouring water into a crystal glass
Tending the logs in the crackling fire
Sharing a meal with a circle of friends.
Embrace these pleasures and know,
This is my true body.

Nowhere is more holy than this.
Right here is the sacred pilgrimage.
Live in alertness for such a moment, my Beloved,
As if it were your one meeting with the Creator.

Adorable One,
When shocked out of your comfort zone –
Drenched by a sudden downpour of rain,
Your armpit being tickled,
Watching a magic show,
And you dissolve into helpless laughter

Dive into the source of that joy
Enter this burbling delight as the essence of creation.

Wherever attention journeys,
On whatever expedition
In your outer world and
Inner secret realms,
Breathe in intimacy with omnipresence.

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 any situation
As an expansion of the divine mystery.
Savor the tremble of recognition
The God in you touching the God out there.

Everyone knows, there is me,
And then there are all these others.
This is common to all.

Lovers know, there is me,
And the source of this me
Is ever mysterious.
Each contact with another
Is a spark of the Divine.

Lovers move through this world
Awake to intimacy,
Each touch a revelation
Never to be repeated.

You are stunned, heart full of anxiety.
You thought you knew
What was going on.
Now you realize
You don’t have a clue.
You are stopped in your tracks.
Everything within your skin is shaking.

Enter this shaking.
Right here, in the midst of commotion –
Get curious, look around inside with wonder.
Unmind your mind.
All the walls have fallen down.
Go ahead and dissolve.

The One Who Has Always Been,
Who has seen much worse than this,
Is still here.

Return again and again to savoring
the space between breaths.
Learn to delight in each momentary turn.

Rest the attention in your blessed core
as you practice this,
and continually be born into a new and fresh world.

Live continuously for a few days
in the meditation,
“I am immersed in the flame, the flame of Life.
The universal fire flows through me without resistance.”

Step into that fire fully, wholeheartedly,
starting with the toe of the right foot -
and then surrendering everywhere.

Only the not-self, which doesn't exist anyway, is burned.
Your essence will emerge renewed in the flame,
for it already is flame and knows itself as flame
since the dawn of time.

Experience the substance of the body and the world
as made up of vibrating particles,
and these particles made up of
even finer energy particles.

Drifting more deeply,
feel into each particle
as it condenses from infinity
and dissolves back into it
continuously.

Noticing this, breathe easily
with infinity dancing everywhere.

Lying in bed, with the gentlest of breaths
centered in the forehead,

fall in to the center of the heart
as you fall asleep.
Thus fall into freedom as you dream.

When sipping some ambrosia,
Raise your glass, close your eyes
Receive the nectar on your tongue
As the kiss of the divine.
Toast the universe,
For the Sun and Moon danced together
To bring you this wine.

Tasting chocolate, a ripe mango, your favorite treat,
Savor the expanding joy in your body.
How astonishing, to realize the world can taste so good
And please you so deeply.
Rising pleasure, overwhelming jubilation.
Be here for this celebration
As the world gives her substance to you.

With one sweep of attention
Gather in the whole universe
And remember it as your body of bliss

The deep rhythms of life
As they pulsate
Stir an ambrosia
Flowing and overflowing everywhere.

Sitting on a soft seat,
Or lying on your mat,
Experience the space below
As offering no support.

You are simply suspended,
Floating in space.

Structures of the mind release,
The reservoir of habits dissolves.
In an instant, lifetimes of patterns
Vanish.

When a yogi meditates that the entire universe or his body is simultaneously filled with the supreme bliss of the joy of self, then through the flow of that joy, he becomes one with supreme joy.

All individual beings perceive the objective world as separate from the subjective world and the subjective world as separate form the objective world. In this regard, there is a special exception for yogis. When yogis perceive the objective world, they perceive the subjective world in the objective world and the objective world in the subjective world. For these yogis, the objective world and the subjective world is not different in their consciousness because their subjective God consciousness is held everywhere. (Vijnana Bhairava 106)

Put the attention into the luminous connections
between each of the centers throughout the body.

The base of the spine and the top of the skull,
The genitals and the heart!
The heart and the throat,
the throat and the forehead,
the forehead to the top of the head . . .

Attend to the current of relationship
electrifying, ever-pulsating, richly textured,
between each of these and every other.

Then attend simultaneously to resonance of all with all.

Enter that glowing net of light
with the focus born of awe
and even your bones will know enlightenment.
