Science of Spirituality
There are two kinds of sciences: The objective science and the subjective science. The objective science is also called the science of the outer, and the subjective science is also called the science of the inner. The objective science helps us to know the object of the subject and the subjective science helps us to know the subject of the object. And ultimately the subjective science helps us to know the subject itself, that is, the consciousness. The objective science helps us to know the body of the universe and the subjective science helps us to know the soul of the universe. The objective science helps us to transform and beautify the object and the subjective science helps us to transform and beautify the subject.
The subject by default is unconsciousness in all its forms. This unconsciousness is so many times bigger than our consciousness. We can improve our unconsciousness to the level of the super-consciousness. This can be termed as cosmic intelligence. When we look into the whole journey from our side it can be termed as evolution and revolution. Monkey to man is evolution, and the man to a New-Man is a revolution. When we see it from the side of the super-consciousness it is same without any change. We can neither be able to add anything to, nor be able to remove anything from the super-consciousness. It remains the same eternally. And it is everywhere. It is like a presence. In the presence of the super-consciousness everything is happening. It is just like how Hydrogen and Oxygen come together to form Water in the presence of Electricity. The consciousness is only a small bridge between the unconsciousness and the super-consciousness. When we bring in our consciousness to our unconsciousness it gets transformed into the super-consciousness. The unconsciousness slowly and slowly, by and by gets dissolved and transforms into the super-consciousness. And this is possible only through the science of the inner called Meditation or Dhyana. An electron is not only a particle but also a wave. The particle dimension of the electron means it is here and there, it is local. And the wave dimension of an electron means it is everywhere, it is non-local. On a similar basis the human being is not only a material body but also an unseen soul or consciousness within the same body. If the soul is an essence then the body is a manifestation of the same essence called the soul. If the soul is an essence then the human body is its effect. If Brahma is the essence then the Cosmos is the manifestation of the same Brahma. The Universe is the Body of the Brahma and the Brahma is the Soul of the same Universe. If Brahma is the essence then the Universe is its effect. The whole universe is actually a breathing, thinking, and feeling universe. The Upanishads proclaimed, “Aham Brahmasmi”. It is in Sanskrit and when translated means that I am Brahma and I cannot be anything otherwise. So this expansion of the consciousness is possible through the science of the inner called Meditation or Dhyana. The scientist say that the Universe is expanding. According to the scientists the Universe is not only expanding but it is accelerating. When the Universe is expanding why our consciousness can not be expanded? This sounds scientific. Our consciousness can also be expanded and accelerated to the state of the Super-consciousness with the help of the science of the inner. I am calling this science of the inner as the “Science of Spirituality”.
Let us look at the equation of Albert Einstein, E = MC2 (E equals MC square). This equation helps us to transform matter into energy. According to this equation matter and energy are inter-convertible. And this is useful for the objective world. This is useful in transforming the objective energy - thermal, mechanical, solar, nuclear, etc. This is perfectly okay with the objective world. But what about the subjective, psychological, and spiritual world? The human being eats food and the body transforms this food into various dimensions of the life energy. This life energy in the human being manifests in various forms like anger, greed, lust, etc. These are the lower forms of the life energy. The real spiritual question is, can this human energy in the lower form be transformed into its higher forms like compassion, benevolence, love, and friendliness? Love and compassion are the highest forms of the same energy. It is in this context I am talking about the theory of non-relativity or the theory of subjective reality. This science of the subjective reality (it is subject to your own subjective experience) I am calling the Science of the Inner and representing it with a formula: C = EM2 (C equals EM square). In this equation ‘C’ means Consciousness, ‘E’ means the life energy in all its lower forms and ‘M’ is the velocity or intensity of Meditation. And with the help of this equation we can be able to transform the human life energy in all its lower forms into Consciousness. This theory I am calling the Science of the Inner or the Science of Spirituality. And I am calling my above equation and my above theory as the theory of “Non-Relativity” or the theory of subjective reality.
There are two kinds of realities: Objective Reality and Subjective Reality. Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity cannot go beyond objective duality (Dvaita) and cannot go beyond the objective truth. This theory at the most can give us objective reality. Relativity means duality (Dvaita) and Non-relativity means transcendence (Advaita). Dvaita mean a non-singular reality, and Advaita means a singular reality. The Science of Spirituality or the Science of the Inner as discussed above can help us to go beyond relativity and duality.
The Science of Spirituality helps us to know, realize, and experience the existential reality or the subjective truth or the Absolute (Advaita). The experience of Enlightenment is nothing but the glimpse of this Advaita or the Absolute. And this is the by-product of Meditation or Dhyana.
