Within life most deep thinking people have come to observe and understand the depths of within ourselves. In prior posts I have expounded that our spirit, inner person, has always existed, and always will. The Bhagavad Gita clearly teaches that the inner person is indestructable. The Bhagavad Gita also teaches that each person is within the Divine.
Most people hearing this have a hard time excepting this teaching. This world through religion, has taught that “God” is all love, therefore how could each person be within the Divine? Considering some humans are non-spiritual, not having any interest in the truth, and some down right wicked, the all love and only love cause confusion. Chapter nine in the Bhagavad Gita states:
” I permeate all the universe in my unmanifest form. All beings exist within me, yet I am so inconceivably vast, so beyond existence, that though they are brought forth and sustained by my limitless power, I am not confined within them. Just as the all-moving wind, wherever it goes, always remains in the vastness of space, all beings remain within me “.
The beautiful scripture of the Gita explains the facts of reality. Jesus taught the same concept with just a different language, culture, and era of time. Thus, Luke writes at chapter 17:20-21.
Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you. “
It is the same teaching just in a different way of explaining the concept.
The Bhagavad Gita continues on and says:
“The truly wise, who dive deep into themselves, fearless, one-pointed, know me as the inexhaustible source.” ” I am the beginning and the end, origin and dissolution, refuge, home, true lover, womb and imperishable seed.”
Isaiah 41:4 sounds so very similar to the Gita.
” Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord – with the first of them and with the last – I am he.”
The Almighty Divine Source, Creator of All is omnipresent; meaning the Divine is everything, at the same time the Divine can be very removed from everything and very hard to find. Everything is within the Divine Source. The predator next to the prey. The righteous next to the very wicked. At the very same time the person of the Almighty Grand Source has no attachment to his creation. Although the Creator has chosen love toward the creation. If the love of the Divine was not stronger then selfishness; nobody would exist. The mystery behind this is that a person has to come to learn what love is, and live it, along with faith to draw close to the Almighty Divine.
Due to the fact that the Almighty Source is formless, without form; this is the reason why Idolatry is against the commandments that Moses wrote down. Therefore Moses wrote at Deuteronomy 4:12;
“Then the LORD spoke to you out of the fire. You heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice. 4:15 You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully.”
Consequently, The Bhagavad Gita teaches the Almighty as formless, unmanifest, and indescribable.
The Almighty Divine Creator is one, as his own person, none of the creation can compare to the Grand Source. Out of the creation each person is an unique individual with their own personality. All creation comes out of the Divine, which in a certain way, all is one; although everything is separate, being their own person, at the same time everyone is within the Divine and a part of the Divine. The only way to find the depths of the Creator is cultivating faith and love; showing love to the stranger is the depth of love, which is to be learned. Accepting all forms of life, the prey and the predator, can give an insight into the Almighty Divine Creator; The Grand Source of All.
