I was thinking about this earlier today. Some people have expressed issues with how SwamiJi is referred to in this culture as Master or God. But I say, if you believe in “the universe” and if you believe he is connected to the universe as total and clear consciousness, then he is universe. I say universe, you say SwamiJi. They are really one in the same. Again, if you believe in cosmic energy (the alchemy of life, the mystical realm, the higher consciousness) then you can believe in SwamiJi. I have to admit, I too struggle a bit with this concept because the relationship I’ve always had with the mystical realm has been unseen and untangable. For me, it is a feeling, a sensation, an image, an inner voice. So to have mysticism present in a physical form in front of your very eyes is confusing for me. But lesson to us all is, we are all interconnected and one in the same, so by doubting him and his abilities you are only doubting yourself and your abilities.
You only know what you know, you can’t know what you don’t know. So try being open to the possibility of the unknown!
