PART 4
I have heard of a Master talking about a gradual awakening.

It is true. It is not enough to find a nugget. You must polish it until the gold blinds the entire universe with its brightness.

Devi ate slowly. Each of her movements was full of harmony; each mouthful seemed to give her profound joy. She was lost in this joy of living through all her actions. I felt that nothing was done mechanically.

With her, everything gave me the chance to communicate more profoundly, to remain in this reality permanently. Consequently, everything that she did was a lesson for me.

Comparing, I noticed those moments of interruption that characterize our life, when we completely lose our conscious contact with the present moment.

But she was so much in the here and now that all her gestures, actions and expressions were filled with magic. It was as if time ran slower or, on the contrary, faster.

The so-called subtle essences are the smell, taste, shape, touch and sound. The first is the essence of smell. You must learn that the heart of fragrance is not the fragrance itself. Close your eyes. Breathe in. The essence of the smell is real.

The essence of the roses is real and intoxicating. Then the subtle essence of taste follows. Each taste contains all other tastes.

Each flavor is unique, but is made up of all the others. Reach into the heart of taste. The fires subtle essence is shape.

The subtle essence of shape is like a pattern that contains all the universal shapes. All the particles of the universe melt and can be found in this pattern. You can reach the essence of touch only by touching my hand. What do you feel?

Your skin, flesh, bones

You feel the essence of touch. Our hands touch. This intimate communion makes you feel the touch of love. It is as if we are totally embracing each other. Just be here and feel this touch. Through me, the entire universe is in your hand. Is it possible that every inch of your skin perceives each inch of my skin?

It is impossible.

Then what is love?

I remained silent, without answer and deeply touched.

Is it possible for each part of your consciousness to touch each part of the Divine?

Yes…The essence of sounds follows. Listen to the universe, to your message. Its fundamental sound is the sacred syllable AUM , that you can perceive in your being.

Close your eyes. Listen to the subtle sound that penetrates your being. Now the entire universe vibrates within you.

Meditate with this mantra continuously, for three days and three nights. Do not pronounce it loudly until you hear the essence of the sound. To utter a mantra before having listened to its subtle sound is like dying before being born.
