Got to be little careful veer ji.

What you think/know of Ik Onkaar is minisicule, what you do not think/know is infinite.

It hardly matter what you think or know in the overall scheme of things. Gurbani is learning everyday and knowing a little bit more everyday. This is called living Gurbani in my mind. In my thinking if one does so, then one is on the right track.

So incremental learning and better incremental living based on this should be the never ending goal.

Just some thoughts.

What you think!

Harry Veer Ji For some reason since I read your post I'm visualizing you in the bath mediating with God.But when you truly start to meditate ,you won't be able to change it into Dell ,because you yourself will ceast to exist,your wife could walk out on you or your bath fall through the earth and it should not disturb you,that is true meditation,what you are doing is your impression of meditation,it will achieve very little as you already know ,but one second of true meditation and nothing remains the same.

sp veer ji are you talking a moment of enlightenment or a moment of unconsciousness? Perhaps both are pretty close to each other. :interestedmunda:

Personally speaking I would rather mediate with God, rather than meditate on God.

I find a discussion with the five thieves and Creators essence quite interesting and meaningful.....

Ambarsaria ji, I might be going a little off topic here, but WHAT ARE THOSE GOATS doing on that tree :D (3rd pic)
http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/interfaith-dialogues/37036-do-members-creation-really-need-humans.html

All with eyes basically check patterns against friend, foe or food. I assume for us creator is friend. Goats are just looking for foliage in area with little on the ground. At least that is what I think mundahug but somehow done the reward - risk analysis.

Hehe thts nice, I know some goats (mountain dwelling) are adept at climbing rocks, but this one is so kool. Maybe God is like a shape shifter? Some food for thought:

PS: In a similar way I wonder if we could 'see' at the time the Universe had no shape, would that affect how we do visualize God?

Veer ji I think you may call it enlightenment or superconsciousness ,but never call it unconsciousness as that is our current mind state.
sp veer ji you never miss much. You missed an opportunity to close the loop. The way I was paraphrasing I was thinking of "there is marginal distance between insanity and genius".

Ok I will redefine the uncoscious to super-conscious lol. Would I be considered to be in samadhi, trance, sleep or plain old worn out or tired.

I like Harry veer jis way of discovery in a bath tub mundahug

When I Was in Shepherds Bush, UK with half a penny I could get enough hot water to take a quick bath. How much are the Gas Meters now!

Sat Sri Akal.

Kanwaljit Singh veer ji when you are going to do your own translation. I think you are very capable. Please contribute to one of the sabads or other Gurbani. It is very refreshing.

I have a hunch regarding visualizations. It may be related to the capillary and venous system in the eye ball and the eyelid. There are masses of minute vessels which may feel like a microcosm.

Veer Ji Was the water really wet was it really hot and was it really quick? for what I meant was we are not as conscious as we think we are,it is mostly perception only.
Even Sheikh Farid was tired and worn out before he managed that state,love is essential to the samaadhi or saadna. Time for my sleep ,within a dream.

SPji,

I disagree (of course I do), unconsciousness is not what I would call our current state, as we are conscious enough to do plenty of damage instead of good. By focusing away from essence of Creator we are alive and we are dangerous.

Given the circular nature of things I would say unconsciousness is closer to superconsciousness, and in the middle you have thief infested consciousness .

I know exactly how much a bath costs these days Ambarsariaji, well I do and I don't, if I am bathing, about 65p, but I have been known to run up a lot more if I am agitated.

Veer Ji is that the daily cost /weekly cost /monthly cost ,as I would like to be conscious of it when I take my annual bath.lol
