The River Meets the Ocean

Once a seeker embarks on his journey — there is only one dedicated goal and that is liberation. The seeker is looking for that one guide, that one realised Master who will take him home. The Master comes in your life when you have an intense desire to know the ultimate truth — this could be because of the desire awakening in this birth or in the previous birth. There are several seekers who go to the shrine of a saint and seek guidance from the bottom of their heart — when the call to the universe is from so deep within, that is when a realised Master — your liberator comes into your life. For some, it appears that they have no such desire in this birth, but because of their intense penance in previous births, without apparently seeking out the realised Master, the Master seeks such souls out and reminds them of the purpose of their lives.

This is exactly what happened to me — I wasn’t looking for liberation or any such thing, I was deeply involved in just living life’s day to day struggles, when out of the blue twelve years ago a friend with whom I had lost contact for almost twenty years comes back into my life and tells me about a saint who has come from the Himalayas and who teaches a very simple form of meditation. He introduced me to Samarpan Meditation and with the passage of time I got a personal audience from the Master and then things moved really fast from then onwards.

Meditation became a regular feature — morning and evening was something I have not missed for a single day since February 2009! The journey went on and still continues — the river was flowing towards the ocean. The day is not far when it will merge with the ocean. That is exactly what happens when a person dies in the state of liberation (moksha) — at the final breath the soul departs without any desire, totally empty, a complete wide, no thought at all in the end — that is when the soul merges with the Supreme Soul or becomes one with Universal Consciousness — that is when the river (soul) finally meets the Ocean of Consciousness. Pray that we all attain that final state where there is nothing else to be achieved and just merge with the Ocean.
