The importance of devotional worship

Ultimately all duality,¬†including¬†you and god, are false… However liberation through devotion is the easiest way to enlightenment…

When one worships God. One is worshiping the self, as all is one, God is considered the unified whole of the universe. When one dualistically worships a deity, the false Ego is worshiping the highest true buddha self, who is perfection in our minds… In Bhakti Yoga it is said that you love until you become the object of your affections. When Bhakti(devotion yoga) combined with Jnana(wisdom yoga) and other yogas spiritual knowledge is perfected.

In Ajah Dharma we call the male godhead the Great Spirit because he is the one spirit or self shared by all beings… The female godhead is called Mother Nature because she is the “outer” part of the one thing, material nature, however the godheads are expressed as the awareness & body-mind.

In a way the ego is falling in on it’s self.

I remember when i was a boy I watched a cartoon, in the cartoon the Hero was under a curse of obedience…

the others said “How do we break the curse?”

The Heroine said “We don’t, we use the curse…”

“Act as if you were’nt under any spell.” and the hero woke up..

Bhakti’s the same way, instead of doing difficult meditations all you have to do is worship, and you will attain liberation… useing the mind against the mind, and for the nourishment of the Spirit…

God can be behind you were its hard to see… behind the illusion, behind your thoughts, etc..

or you can be in front of God…. in front of you as a diety, in front of you as the symbol, etc…
