The Most Precious Freedom

"As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm"-The Upanishads We ARE each the center of the universe-a universe that is neither static nor circular and hence not restricted to just one center. Truth Consciousness is the recognition that every thought/ action creates a ripple that rumbles thru the entire universe, curves around and comes right back to the origin! Such a realization forces one to exercise discipline over one's thoughts/ actions.Dharma, karma, brahma is all held within this realisation-I am the universe. Hence, I must think/ act with the complete unison, inclusion, compassion, cohesion and creation of the universal forces. Is this megalomania/ psychosis or the dawning bliss of spiritual awakening??
