    Hi. I appreciate your contemplations and revelations. Have you explored the yoga of the Sound Current called “Surat Shabd Yoga”? You may wish to read Julian Johnson’s book, “Path of the Masters”, to gain a greater understanding of the “sense of lack, deficiency” which is so prevalent – but usually ignored – in every human being, every culture and time.

    The pains of separation are an innate part of our innermost nature. They exist for a purely divine purpose. Thanks kindly.

    Hi Albert,

    Thank you for your comment. No, I haven’t read that book, but will check it out, thanks!

    The anava mala, as this fundamental sense of lack is called in Kashmir Shaivism, is indeed a universal thing. It is the basis for the sense of separation, which not only results in the creation of the separate self but also leads to suffering from identification with it. It is also divine since nothing in existence is excluded from divinity. Even in the so-called separation and limitation, we are constantly driven to seek wholeness, the divine.

    Warm regards to you.
