  1. "In samadhi (sometimes translated as "trance"), the mind is merged with the Divine, so that there's no longer any separation between the subject (the meditator) and the object (God). When asked once how he felt in samadhi, Ramakrishna replied, 'I feel like a fish released from a pot into the water of the Ganges.'" (Kendra Crossen Burroughs, note 7 from Selections from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, Translation by Swami Nikhilananda, p. 34). //// The Ismaili Muslim Imam, Sulṭan Muḥammad Shah Aga Khan III, writes: “Life in the ultimate analysis has taught me one enduring lesson. The subject should always disappear in the object. In our ordinary affections one for another, in our daily work with hand or brain, most of us discover soon enough that any lasting satisfaction, any contentment that we can achieve, is the result of forgetting self, of merging subject with object in a harmony that is of body, mind and spirit. And in the highest realms of consciousness all who believe in a Higher Being are liberated from all the clogging and hampering bonds of the subjective self in prayer, in rapt meditation upon and in the face of the glorious radiance of eternity, in which all temporal and earthly consciousness is swallowed up and itself becomes the eternal.” //// In another place, Aga Khan III writes: “It is a Muslim’s highest duty, by intensive prayer and spiritual abandonment of self to the great Universal Soul of the Universe, to get the supreme blessing of direct communion with Absolute Reality.” #meditation #meditateeverydamnday #consciousness #christconsciousness #godconscienciousness #taqwa #samadhi #fana #fanafillah #baqa #baqabillah #monoreality #theabsolute #oneness #agakhan #ramakrishna #gnosis #spirituality #spiritualpoetry #poem #poetsofinstagram #igpoets
