GANESHA IS CONSCIOUSNESS
I am Ganesha. I am your Consciousness. I am the actions that you do consciously, knowingly. I am the child, the off-spring of The Divine Father and The Divine Mother – your Unconscious and the Subconscious. On a higher level, I am the Universal Consciousness – the inter-connectedness of the universe. Since I am in one and all – the plants, the animals and the humans – I connect you all to one another. I am The Divine Connection. I am the Universal Conscious Feeling. Just like my Divine Parents – I am all pervading. I am Ganesha. I am your conscious Guide. I am The Force, The Power in you that lets you know – that lets you be aware of the universe; of what is happening all around you, in you and outside you.
How can you know me?
By consciously being aware of yourself. The more conscious you are, the more in tune with me you are. When you are about to do something and are aware of the consequences – you are witnessing me. Since I am your Guide ( whether you let me be or not , I AM THAT) I make you aware of the result, in your consciousness. Some stop themselves (when the action is negative) and some still go ahead. But my constant presence is always there.
Without The Divine Unconscious & The Subconscious, I can not exist. I am The Third of The Divine Trinity.
Because of me, Ganesha – The Universal Consciousness, actions of a person in this corner of the world affect the persons in the other, faraway corner of the world. The power to stop yourself or to go ahead, is unique to humans. That is the Divine Choice residing in you – The Power of Viveka – to be able to sift and sort in your mind and then make a choice.
I am The Voice of Wisdom in you – your Divine Guide. I am the Power of Clarity because having sifted and sorted, what remains, what comes out is – Light out of darkness. I am the Harbinger of light in your life.
I am the Courage in you – The Power that sees you through difficult times and brings out the victorious in you.
I am The Conscious Joy that you feel. The joy that you feel on accomplishing your goals – That is Ganesha. The joy that you feel when you help someone – That is Ganesha. The joy that you feel when you know in your heart that you have done the right thing – That is Ganesha.
Just be in observance of your life – and you can witness my glory.
I am Ganesha – your Friend.
Watch a two-year old child closely. What an immersive life he/she lives! Every minute is lived with utter surety – enjoyed or not enjoyed. Mother is close by? Happy and secure! Mother is not seen around? Cry yourself hoarse with full abandon till she runs back and picks you up! How sure the child is of what he wants at that age! How closely life is felt! Watch closely how he licks every drop out of the ice-cream cone. Enjoyment to the fullest!
Once out of infancy and childhood, we, humans live a majority of our lives mechanically and unthinkingly. Life is a precious gift from The Divine to us. We need to honour this gift by being aware and conscious of it.
There is so much peace in shutting out the outside noise from time to time and tuning in to our own divinity – The Ganesha in us.
There is joy in savouring every minute of our ‘livingness’.
Our ‘Ganesha-ness’ is our power of being in observance.
