20121217 – Sanskaras linger on after death

… The body drops, but the mind remains. And when the body drops, its impressions immediately manifest, trying to spread themselves and assume a new body. They want expression through the body, and so another body comes into existence which is made up of these impressions.

Thus, with the dropping of every form, the sanskaras want to take another body. If these sanskaras are crooked – meaning, evil – the body is also crooked – diseased, for example. If the sanskaras are evil, the body suffers pain; if they are good, the mind is happy.

So long as the mind is there, the impressions also will be there and, with these, the body also. The soul won’t see God until the sanskaras are finished. Dropping of the body is therefore of no avail, but if the mind goes, then there are no sanskaras left. They disappear. But the paradox is that the body’s falling and sanskaras asking for another body to spend themselves help the soul gradually to gain self consciousness for the drop to see the Ocean – the Oversoul.

Then what is required? The mind must go; then alone can these impressions gathered automatically disappear. Then the body – the drop soul – sees the Ocean. This was the original state of God. But at that time the soul (atma) was sleeping with its eyes closed.
