What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

The dissolving of the identity.....

..... which is the final state, what we call mukti, or liberation..., actually, this doesn´t happen on the mind level, So, it is not in the hand of man. That is why we say "Surrender to God". Why do you think we say "surrender"? Because that state, of complete merging into the Divine, is not in the hand of anyone. Only in Him. Great souls, they choose to keep this, but at will. they can finish it. Great souls choose to keep it, so they can come and help others. But they are not bound to it. That is why the ego identity, or the soul identity, when this is finished, when this has disappeared completely, one merges into the Divine. Then this question you will ask is "What will happen to me?" Well there is no you!! There is only Him!! We said, that we are all a drop of the Divine in the ocean, no? But when the drop is put into the ocean, can somebody remove the same drop out? No you can´t. You have similar qualities as the ocean, inside of you. You have similar qualities of Divinity inside of you, but the Divine is the Divine. Like the drop of water can´t call itself the whole ocean, it is a drop of the ocean. The ocean is huge. Same as God. The mind can´t comprehend God, that is why He manifests in many forms, so that the mind can dwell on the form and attain Him. Same, with the ocean and the drop of water. For example, take a glass of water from the ocean, from the river and put it back again, and I tell you to take the same water out. Can you do that? No, you can´t. Same thing, but with great souls, let´s say avatars, they can. For example, you see, we say "Paramahamsa" no? What is Paramahamsa? What is hamsa? A swan. Why do we call a great avatar a Paramahamsa? Eh? He can what? If you take milk and pour it in water, the Paramahamsa can drink only the milk. Strange, huh? But that is a great soul. They can help others to rise. And they can also rise whenever, they also can let go of their identity completely, at will. So this is the dissolution of the ego identity.
