Question for June 7, 2103 – Maya – The Illusion

What are the different forms of maya. How can a bk recognise it. Baba says the sronger you become in effort the stronger is maya. What types of maya affect a senior bk? Please help.

Dear soul,

Thank you for your great question!
Maya or “illusion” is just that, an “illusion.”
In Sakar days, it was about the “illusion” of taking you away from the “Father’s lap.” In our days, it is the illusion that removes you from self-transformation if that is what you value in life.

The stronger is our ego, the stronger will be the “effort” needed to “overcome it,” thus, that “illusion” becomes stronger.

From a child like understanding then, Maya is “bad.”
We need to destroy “her.” We need to “make effort” to go over it…

Once the child grows up then, “Maya” is a teacher. (This is something which Baba has said as well.) Nothing to be afraid of, but it becomes the way that we learn about ourselves when we have that honesty, awareness and Spirituality is our aim.

I don’t know what kind of illusions a senior has. But, definitely, just like the rest of us. My illusion may not be your illusion, but your illusion is an illusion just like mine.

Once we awaken from those illusions, the nightmare is over.

What are the different forms of Maya?
It is formless. Or as many forms as the sand grains at the beach… It is omnipresent 🙂

How can a BK could recognize it?
By suffering. Unless you are able to see it at a “distance,” and no reject it, but play with it… 🙂 or just wake up from sleeping mode.

How can you recognize day light?
By having experienced night time.

Best wishes!

    Dear soul,
    This is a beautiful explanation. “Maya” indeed is a teacher. Again I can find the undertones of non-duality here. Does that mean , even if I am soul conscious Maya is needed to keep the cycle going(because it can be understood as the cause of action) or I am so aware of my purpose that I wont need It anymore?
    Thank you

    Dear soul,
    Maya, the “illusion” is only there when we have not reached a consciousness of a detached observer, a “witness.” Until that point, there will be “Maya.” The cause of action is “cause-less-ness.” Action comes from non-action. Movement from stillness. That is duality. Entropy takes care of the cycle going.
    Soul consciousness is to be a detached observer.

    Best wishes!
