PERCEPTION AND STEADFASTNESS OF INTELLECT
(God/Brahman working with Vatsa Sridatta)
With Commentary by
God / Brahman Speaking To Anne Terri Through The Holy Spirit
"God/Brahman working with Vatsa Sridatta"
"The perception of the Eternal in the transitory, of the pure in the impure, of pleasure in pain and of the self in the non-self, is ignorance"
(Commentary on The Bhagavad Gita 5:16)
'Steadfastness of Intellect '
It is not the mind which gets established in equanimity, but it is the intellect which gets established. Mind is concentrated in meditation.
The Steadfastness of mind persists only in meditation, not while engaged in dealings, but steadfastness of intellect persists constantly.
It is not the steadfastness of mind, but the steadfastness of intellect which leads to salvation.
Steadfastness of mind brings about mysterious accomplishments. Therefore, steadfastness of mind is not of so much value as is the steadfastness of intellect.
The LORD has mentioned that a person not deluded with a firm intellect, becomes one with Brahman (GOD), but by error a striver may not think oneself to be an enlightened soul, if there is no equanimity in intellect. The should also understand that one has not attained Self-realization, and thinking as it is written above, is only one's misconception.
The mark of equanimity in intellect is---freedom from attachment and aversion, pleasure and pain etc.
On having realized the Self, equanimity ever persists in intellect. The intellect never deviates or stirs from this equanimity.
Those, whose intellect is established in equanimity, become free from attachment and aversion. Their equanimous intellect naturally remains firm in the fact that all is GOD.
When there is no other entity besides GOD, then who should have aversion and towards whom?
When only THAT ONE - EVER EXISTENT - ENTITY is realized, then no desire persists, and no disquietude remains.
( From Gita-5/19)
'Hari Om'. “AMEN”
“God / Brahman Speaking To Anne Terri Through The Holy Spirit:
With the ways of your Intellect, you surly realize that the Trimurti has split Me into Threes,
and even Brahma has lost favor in these times, following a distant third place to Vishnu and Shiva.
Intellectually, I Ask those who are of Faith, to be not so distant from Me -
for I Am Close to you - and to bring to your hearts -
if you must follow the Trimurti - Brahma, your chosen Creator.
