ANXIETY DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
The Awareness about your own physical existence, passions, feelings, thoughts and perspective constitute individual consciousness. Individual consciousness; separated from the objective consciousness is weak, diffident and insecure. It keeps you away from the fountainhead of power, confidence and assurance! The fear of losing identity, the fear losing individual life, the fear of not being able to do something in life, are hallmarks of growing but isolated individual consciousness. The resentment about prevalence of injustice (according to you); also springs from growing but isolated individual consciousness. The apprehension that somebody else “steals” “your” credit
also springs from this individual consciousness! The progress of this individual consciousness into the objective consciousness (due to the continuous calling of the objective consciousness from within); in spite of the overpowering influence of this individual consciousness; is like an unending war! It makes you restless and anxious throughout! But when you reach the root of your individual consciousness; your fear disappears gradually because of the realization of the immortality and cosmic nature of the objective consciousness! Further, you realize that you have been able to reach this sublime state in spite of the innumerable drawbacks (traditionally termed vices or sins)! This gives you the
assurance that everyone in the universe has potential to reach there at appropriate time (though not necessarily as per your anticipation)! This is a realistic and great assurance and can allay all your restlessness and anxiety! Further, your want for credit vanishes as you realize that; in the objective consciousness that you have reached; the “time itself is contingent” and hence the petty thoughts of “credit”, “pioneering”, “creating”, “following” etc vanish! Going to the root of individual consciousness and experiencing its oneness with the cosmic or objective consciousness is not easy! But with the practice of NAMASMARAN you can certainly emerge triumphant!
You need not believe in this, but you may provisionally accept and verify it with sincerity and steadfastness!
