Consciousness Of Waves – In Gita Verse 14.2 By becoming fixed in this knowledge, one can attain to the transcendental nature like My own. Thus established, one is not born at the time of creation or disturbed at the time of dissolution.

Krishna, in the resplendent wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, says that our true nature is transcendental, akin to His divine essence. The mystique lies in the realisation – the drop need not strive to become the ocean; it already is the ocean. It simply must awaken to this truth. To know what is, as it is, without distortion or dissection, is to encounter truth. And indeed, it is the truth that liberates.

This verse can be illuminated through the lens of The Vigyan Bhairav Tantra’s Technique, which states: AS WAVES COME WITH WATER AND FLAMES WITH FIRE, SO THE UNIVERSAL WAVES WITH US.

To grasp the essence of a wave is to understand how it can usher us into a profound state of meditation. A wave on the ocean’s surface presents itself as a distinct entity, yet in a deeper sense, it isn’t one at all. In depth, there is only the ocean. A wave is but a form, a temporary shape taken by the water, not a substance distinct from the sea itself. The ocean can exist in silence or in tempest, yet waves are a testament to activity. They are the ocean’s dance, the visible pulsations of an invisible rhythm.

A wave, by itself, appears unique. It carries individual characteristics – some waves are grand, others humble. They emerge and dissolve seemingly unrelated, but just below the surface, they are inextricably woven into the tapestry of the ocean. The difference between waves is merely superficial, an illusion created by form, not essence.

We, too, are but waves on the cosmic ocean, arising and falling with the breath of the universe. Our being is not separate; we are an integrated whole. Our individuality is an illusion, a trick of light and shadow on the water’s surface. The understanding that ego is the only barrier becomes the key to transcending the illusion. The ego nurtures the illusory sense of separateness, but the ocean of life knows no such divide.

Gautam Buddha and Mahavira Vardhaman were beings who transcended the concept of God, not as a rejection but as a deeper embrace of this cosmic unity. Their journeys toward enlightenment were not walks toward a deity but dissolutions into the total, into the all-encompassing ocean of existence.

Krishna reiterates that God or no God, the essence of spirituality lies in the dissolution of the ‘I’, the ego. Where the individual wave ceases to identify solely with its form and recognises its oneness with the vast ocean, divinity is realised. By releasing the ego, we cease to cling to our wave-like existence, surrendering to the boundless sea from which we arise.

In life, it is easy to become fixated on the waves – the constant rise and fall of our daily experiences and emotions. Yet, grasping at these waves only serves to separate us from the vast ocean of existence of which we are an inseparable part. Instead, let us seek to merge with the ocean itself, recognising that every breath we take is part of a greater, shared existence.

As you breathe, imagine each breath as a wave in the infinite sea of life, connected to the ebbs and flows of a universal breath. Understand that your individuality is a unique expression of a grander reality, a single note in the symphony of the cosmos. By acknowledging our oneness with this totality, we step seamlessly into the divine embrace. The illusion of separation dissolves, and we find ourselves in harmony with the eternal, a natural state of being that has always been ours to claim.
