Swami Satchitananda, the founder of Yogaville here in VA, is the name of Tolle’s Teaching, Being, Knowing, Bliss. Being is Now, and I am Being without boundaries when I don’t know myself as a body with parts. Being IS Knowing when I don’t partition myself apart from the rest of being. When Being and Knowing are ONE…there is bliss.
The problem is out logical way of thinking about reality that must be either this or that but never This/That. So our logic separates being from knowing into beings as things that I know. This is an artificial division in being/knowing so I can manipulate reality and make stuff. I believe I know the world now, but everything is an IT…and I have no bliss.
Sensing my essential being in the background is actually the KNOWING that is Being or the Being that is Knowing. I AM is both being/knowing (the bliss). But I AM also separates itself from being as ME. can creates this field of reality in which I live as a separate thing. We have to live in both at the same time: being in the world and of the world. Awake and asleep at the same time, being awake in our sleep.
I have a sliver ring with Satchitananda on the right hand and a gold wedding band on my left hand. On my right hand I AM formless, and on my left hand I’m married to the world of form. When I put my hands together: SATCHITANANDA!
