Receipt of an attainment
(we need to get which we already have)
Just listening to the title, question arise what is this? What the writer wants to talk about? What does the title indicate? What is the receipt of an attainment? The receipt of an attainment is the receipt of that which is usually attainable to us from the very beginning. For which let us understand first the concept of three types of body. According to the scriptures we are not only the owner of the physical body but also the other two types of body i.e. the subtle and the causal body. The physical body is made up of PANCHMAHABHUTAS (water, air, fire, earth, sky), the subtle body is made up of mind, intellect and ego while the causal body is made up of Sat-Chit-ANAND that is truth, knowledge and pleasure. This causal body is constantly with us in the endless journey of birth and death. The first element of the causal body, Sat means truth means existence, is an indestructible element about which nothing can be said, because as soon as the form of speech takes shape, its formless dominion disappears, that is why the word NETI-NETI is used in the introduction of supreme soul or divine power in the scriptures. Because the indestructible element of truth is only matched with PARAMATMA, truth means PARAMATMA. The second element of the causal body, Chit, is the conscience or inner understanding which we commonly known as knowledge, whose inexhaustible treasure is supreme soul and the third element is pleasure which is the real form of divine power.
From this point of view, it seems true that the soul is the pure form of God, because the body is nothing but the vagina or form of the soul. That is why we identify the divine form as Sat-chit-ANAND. The attainment of Sat-chit-ANAND is the true form of salvation which has been the unique and ultimate purpose of human life. Perhaps that is why every human being loves the truth (everyone likes speaker who speaks the truth), everyone has desires to acquire knowledge (we know each one always keeps on acquiring knowledge to the best of his ability during the entire life) and is fascinated by joy. Thus the purpose of human life is not the pursuit of happiness but the pursuit of truth. But we are ignorantly driving the vehicle of life in the wrong direction. The pursuit of happiness leads to the attainment of unhappiness as the desire for happiness is the cause of unhappiness.
The race for happiness begins with a lack of glands. The person is not satisfied with what he has, he wants more than that and there is no end to it. A man suffering from apathy is constantly engrossed in the fulfillment of desires and forgets his original form i.e. soul and goal. Pleasure is not possible without the attainment of the self or soul that is our original identity. Thus the attainment of Sat-chit-ANAND is the culmination of all discovery Moreover, Sat-chit-ANAND is not possible without dissolution of self illusion, ego and worldly desires. So it is necessary to turn back to this in the sense of attaining one’s original form or Sat-chit-ANAND. There are seven centers of discovery or search of human life means everyone wants to get these seven things. In the race for its attainment, man strives for life, are as below.
1) Energy – Man is striving for the growth of physical, mental and spiritual strength.
2) Peace – every person at the end of the day only wants peace of mind for life.
3) Love – Man constantly strives to love and give love to someone. The whole of nature is eager for affection, which we all know.
4) Beauty – Beauty always attracts the human beings.
5) Knowledge – means our curiosity. Who am I? Who is my creator? What is life and death? Etc.
6) Pleasure – All kinds of happiness are the only form of pleasure. Our search for happiness is nothing but a longing for pleasure.
7) Immortality – the longing for one’s own survival.
The attainment of these seven centers is possible only through the attainment of the soul. If there is any ultimate center where these seven centers are centered, it is the soul. In fact, our life cycle revolves around the soul. The only center of eternal peace is the soul. Knowing one soul makes it possible to attain complete knowledge. The source of all power is the soul. The soul is the only form of love, there is no need to change the beloved after loving it.
The person keeps changing the loved one for life. Loves mother with birth then with growing up love siblings and friends. After marriage loves wife then loves the offspring. Thus the whole life keeps changing the beloved but he does not get eternal love anywhere because the center of eternal love is only the soul. Human love is just an illusion of ultimate love. And true happiness is nowhere in the world. The whole creation comes out of the soul in the form of joy and lives in it. There are two types of pleasure, instrumental pleasure and axiomatic pleasure. Instrumental pleasure ends when the instrument is removed, while self-evident pleasure is indestructible and uninterrupted which is the basic form of the soul In the same way every creature is attracted towards beauty. In fact, no matter how beautiful the body, it cannot look beautiful without consciousness that is why we do not love the body after death.
Thus real beauty is the only supreme soul. In short, the seven centers of discovery or longing for human life are power, peace, love, beauty, knowledge, joy and immortality, nothing but the true form of the soul so that we are unknowingly attracted to it. With the attainment of the soul (which can be done through internal travel, the self can be attained by becoming introverted instead of external subjects) automatically the seven centers of discovery are attained. This is called attainment. Achieving success does not require special effort or hard work. Because life is closest to us or say we are actual life so there is no need to look far or find a way to get there. Where to reach is nowhere far away, here it is, nowhere else. If I have to come to you, I can walk on a road, but if I have to reach myself, which way should I go? And if a person walks a path to reach himself, he will never be able to find and make mistakes, and he will lose himself due to finding. The only man who reaches out to himself is the one who leaves all the ways and stays standing. With such a true understanding race of getting it ends and the attainment of attainment becomes possible. In fact, we run because of unlimited wants or lust and desire drives us. Those who know the truth do not make the way, those who do not know the truth are the ones who try to find a way and put others in trouble too. Thus, in fact, we have to receive attainment in this sense, and if it is achieved, that is, if we succeed in achieving the objective, then we can say life is successful. In short, the path that is reached not by walking but by standing that is by stopping our-self is the path of attainment.
