BECOME SHUNYA, BECOME SHIVA

Wisdom Tetter

Shiva means the vast space and nothingness which is eternal, has no beginning nor end and is all powerful and all pervading. Though Shiva signifies Shunya or nothingness, it is also the source of everything as the Universe has emanated out of nothingness or Shiva tatva and the entire creation is nothing but the solidified or modified form of the formless Shiva.

Out of all the forms of Shiva, the Jiva (human form) is the rarest and most privileged as it has the highest potential and sole capability of realizing and experiencing the Shiva tatva within and around itself. There is abundant, unlimited nothingness or Shunyata within each one of us too but due to our ignorance we have filled it with certain weights like the weight of ego, expectations, grudges, regrets, endless desires, conditions, impressions and negative thoughts which don’t allow us enjoy and experience the nothingness within us.

To realize our true identity and Shiva Swaroop, all we have to do is become Shunya through every thought, feeling, action and reaction of ours. For example, being free from doer-ship is becoming Shunya, letting go is becoming Shunya, seeking forgiveness is becoming Shunya, joyfully taking blame is becoming Shunya, bowing down is becoming Shunya, breaking conditions is becoming Shunya, accepting everyone is becoming Shunya, dropping expectations is becoming Shunya, giving credit to others is becoming Shunya, expressing gratitude is becoming Shunya, feeling unconditional love is becoming Shunya, surrendering ego is becoming Shunya, being peaceful is becoming Shunya, being bhavana oriented is becoming Shunya, witnessing thoughts is becoming Shunya, meditating is becoming Shunya.

On this Maha Shivratri, to become Shiva, simply become Shunya and this feeling of Nothingness or Emptiness itself will lead to the feeling of Fullness, Completeness and Oneness with Shiva.
