“Though outwardly he appears to become the same individual as he had been before the attainment of the Transcendent Experience of the Samadhi-state, yet inwardly this is not the case. The Truth-experience which illumines his consciousness in the supramental supra-intellectual supra-egoistic transcendent state exercises a great enlightening influence
upon his normal mind and intellect and ego.

His entire outlook on himself, his fellow-beings and the world of inter-related diversities undergoes a radical transformation as the result of that experience. Before he Was blessed with that experience, the Spiritual Unity of all existences had been veiled from his empirical consciousness. He used to see the plurality as plurality, but he had not the eyes to see the Unity that shone in and through them.

The Absolute One, that manifests Itself in the diverse forms of relative plurality, that sustains their existence, regulates their movements, links them with one another and constitutes them into a magnificent cosmic order, had been concealed from his view, though he had felt a deep craving within his consciousness for having a glimpse of that Absolute One.

Now, that Absolute One has revealed Itself to his consciousness; the veil has been removed; the consciousness has been illumined. This illumination is transmitted to the intellect, the ego and the mind and even to the senses. They do not now experience merely what they used to experience before the illumination descended upon them, but also the Absolute One along with and as the real essence of the objects of their normal experience.

The ego now feels the Absolute One as its True Self and feels itself as an individualised self-expression of the Absolute One. The intellect now no longer theorises, but finds in the Absolute One the ultimate rational explanation of all the problems that may appear before it.

All the thoughts, feelings and volitions of the illumined mind now revolve round the Absolute One as the centre. All the diverse kinds of objects of sense-perception are experiences as diversified appearances or manifestations of the One.”

-from, Philosophy of Gorakhnath

MICHAEL: As the well known saying goes,“Before enlightenment, mountains are mountains and streams are streams. During enlightenment, there are no mountains or streams, after enlightenment, mountains are mountains and streams are streams again.”

The above by Guru Gorakhnath is a beautiful description of phase 3, when the Yogi comes back into the world, but with new eyes that now and forever see/feel/know the One Love/Unity/Spirit in and behind all seemly separate manifest forms.

The Yogi naturally and happily lives from his direct experience of the Light of the Absolute, which the “normal” mind, which is still operating in darkness (ego), has yet to consciously realize.
