" Though creator has no form but is
present in all the forms of its creation"

NAME AND FORM
Part - 3


Everything in creation has same source and that source is god or creator. But whatever description we may use for creation may fail when we try to describe creator in the same breath. It is man's futile effort to give names and forms to the creator because he is so much used to these two all his life.

Disciple : Now what should I do ? Should I seek the creator
or try not to see the names and forms in creation ?
Master : That's all the same. Both are simultaneous !
Disciple : How come these two different actions can be the same?
Master : When you drop seeing the forms and names then you
naturally begin to see the connectedness of this universe !
Disciple : Is that seeing God or creator too ?
Master : Exactly !

The seeker can never remove the names and forms from the face of this creation. It would exist as long human mind exist too. But surely he has an option to see the forms and names and still comprehend the nameless and formless hidden in creation.

Disciple : Wow ! That sounds fantastic. But how can I do that ?
Master : Firstly let this knowledge sink in well. Then try to
see yourself without a name and form !
Disciple : This is tricky thing now. How do I do that ?
Master : Come to a clear understanding that you are not
just your name or the form or shape you carry !
Disciple : But what is the evidence for that to believe?
I need some proof of understanding !
Master : Simple ! Your name can be changed to anything
and your form can change too on a daily basis, but you
will still remain. You will not disappear when your name
or the form suddenly changed tomorrow !
Disciple : Yes, even If my name changed to Idi Amin,
I would be still eating only raw vegetables for dinner,
I get your point now !

Start with you first. See how much you are identified with your name and form. You need not have to destroy your form or change your name but just look deeper at you beyond your name and form. You would still have a name and form but certainly not bound by it. That's when you begin to see beyond the name and form in others and in creation too.
