I’ll continue to expand on Isavasya Upanishad’s 10th verse, please listen:
anyad evāhur vidyayā-anyad āhur avidyayā |
iti śuśruma dhīrāṇaṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 10 ||
The translation goes.
It is said that by vidya, the knowledge cognized from the right context of grasping the Truth. Please understand, this verse, the 10th verse of the Isavasya Upanishad, is trying to remind you the important truth of necessity to have a deep seeking alive.
Understand, seeking is the fire constantly helps you to reinvent yourself. I tell you, all the best things in My life, whether the best period I was healthy, I should say I am not just I was; the best goodness I felt about me, please understand, this is one of the greatest wealth, feeling good about you, feeling “wow” about yourself, the Ultimate ability to do tyaga, sacrifice, the amazing romance with the life, everything, please understand, all the best things of my life, was living in Me when I was seeking. Even now it is living in Me because I am established in seeking.
Listen. Even an Incarnation is established in seeking.
See, before My enlightenment I was seeking Enlightenment; once Enlightenment has happened, mind has disappeared, I realized, “I am the whole, I am the Cosmos”, but Cosmos itself is not stagnant, it is constantly expanding. How can it expand if it doesn’t have a seeking to become something more? So the very expansion of Cosmos is fueled by the seeking of Cosmos. That is why I am saying, even after I have realized—I am the Cosmos—my mind has disappeared but not seeking. Mind disappearing is only called as Enlightenment not disappearance of seeking. Understand, that is why I insist Enlightenment is ultimate not final.
Understand, giving in to your compulsory patterns, pattern compulsions, is suffering. Making the seeking as the compelling form of existence is Enlightenment.
