One formless God – Oceans Of Bliss


Baba said many times, I am you and you are Me.. You are the waves, and I am the ocean. Know this and be free. Be divine… Here is an offering of quotations from many faiths and religions , enjoy.


“What is God after all? An eternal child playing an eternal game in an eternal garden.” – Sri Aurobindo

“The wave is the same as the ocean, though it is not the whole ocean. So each wave of creation is a part of the eternal Ocean of Spirit. The Ocean can exist without the waves, but the waves cannot exist without the Ocean.” ~ Sri.  Yogananda

“God is whole and constant. In himself he is motionless, yet he is
self-moving… He is hidden yet obvious everywhere. His being is known
through thought alone, yet we see his form before our eyes. He is
bodiless yet embodied in everything. There is nothing which he is
not… He is the unity of all things… He is the Whole which contains
everything. He is One, not two. He is all, not many. The All is not
many separate things, but the Oneness that subsumes the parts. The All
and the One are identical. You think that things are many when you
view them as separate, but when you see they all hang on the One and
flow from the One you will realise they are united – linked together
and connected by a chain of Being from the highest to the lowest, all
subject to the will of God”  ~ the Hermetica



“The journey to God begins with the awakening to the concept that the
phenomenal world is a veil which conceals the Divine. We begin the
Quest by removing the veil, only to become aware that the veil and the
Divine are one and the same thing. The veil is the theophany itself:
the manifestation of the Divine through Its Names and Qualities. When
we see the veil, we are seeing nothing but the Divine.”  ~ Laleh Bakhtiar (Sufi Mystic)

“The Ancient of Ancients, the Unknown of the Unknown, has a form, yet
also has not any form. It has a form through which is the universe is
maintained. It also has not any form, as It cannot be comprehended.” ~  the Zohar, (key Kabbalistic text)

“Exalted in songs has been Brahman. In him are God and the world and
the soul, and he is the imperishable supporter of all. When the seers
of Brahman see him in all creation, they find peace in Brahman and are
free from all sorrow.” – the Upanishads



“Hear, O Israel:

The Lord our God is one Lord:

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God

With all thine heart,

And with all thy soul,

And with all thy might.”  ~ the Shema (Jewish Sacred Prayer)

“Except God no substance can be granted or conceived. .. Everything, I
say, is in God, and all things which are made, are made by the laws of
the infinite nature of God, and necessarily follows from the necessity
of his essence.”  ~ Spinoza


“We are in all things,

And all things are within us,

We are all relatives.”  ~- Lakota Sioux Saying


“Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a
living being endowed with a soul and intelligence … a single visible
living entity containing all other living entities, which by their
nature are all related.” ~  Plato

“There is a Spirit which is mind and life, light and truth and vast
spaces. He contains all works and desires and all perfumes and all
tastes. He enfolds the whole universe, and in silence is loving to
all. This is the Spirit that is in my heart, smaller than a grain of
rice, or a grain of barley, or a grain of mustard-seed, or a grin of
canary-seed, or the kernel of a grain of canary-seed. This is the
Spirit that is in my heart, greater than the earth, greater than the
sky, greater than the heaven itself, greater than all these worlds.
This is the Spirit that is in my heart, this is Brahman.”  ~ Kena Upanishad

“He who sees that the Lord of all is ever the same in all that is,
immortal in the field of immortality – he sees the truth. And when a
man sees that the God in himself is the same God in all that is, he
hurts not himself by hurting others: then he goes indeed to the
highest Path.” ~ Bhagavad Gita

A Mist, A Cave, A Dream – Oceans Of Bliss

He who understand has wings. We know that among many peoples the soul is conceived of as a bird. Magical flight assumes the value of an “escape from the body -” that is, it translates ecstasy, the liberation for the soul, into plastic terms. But while the majority of human beings are changed into birds only as the moment of death, when they  forsake their bodies, and fly into the air, shamans, sorcerers, and ecstatic of all kinds realize ’emergence from the body’ in this world and as often as they wish. 

This myth of the bird-soul contains in germ a whole metaphysics of man’s spiritual autonomy and freedom. – Mircea Eliade




For twelve years I was the smith of my soul. I put it in the furnace of austerity and burned it in the fire of combat. I laid it on the anvil of reproach and smote it with the hammer of blame until i made of my soul a mirror with divers acts of worship and piety. then for a year I gazed in contemplation. On my waist I saw a girdle of pride and vanity and self-conceit and reliance on devotion and approbation of my works. I laboured for five years more until that girdle became worn out and I professed Islam anew. I looked and saw that all created things were dead. I pronounced four akbirs over them and returned from the funeral of them all and without intrusion of creatures, through God’s help alone, I attained unto God.

~Bayazid of Bistun



and to conclude:

There is something in the soul within God lives, and something in the soul wherein the soul  lives in God. I am not sure people, even after years of spiritual practice really understand the nature of soul. While here on the Earth, we are forever protecting our egos, as if they themselves survive death. In truth, the soul, on its journey to the Infinite, cannot turn back halfway. And when it reaches that goal, it experiences only the light, the wisdom, the love of the Divine and it loses two things. It loses all the marks of the experiences and thoughts of its manifestations: and it loses its individuality and is merged in the infinite divine consciousness.
