The Path Of Devotion is called by Hindus and Buddhists “Bhakti“. They say that the Path Of Devotion leads to union with God. Most people in the Western World have conscious awareness residing in the head. The Path of Devotion involves residing awareness in the Heart. By “Heart” is meant the Divine that is at the core of each of us.
Arunachala Ramana says the (spiritual) “Heart” is on the right side of the chest, about four centimetres (an inch and a half) from the mid-line of the body, around the fourth to fifth ribs. (See Collected Works Of Ramana Maharshi, go to the Work called Upadesa Manjari, or Spiritual Instruction, Chapter Two, Sections 8 and 9).
When I resonate some of the Celestial Words Of Power with an appropriate intent, I sense a warm sensation in this area. Also, after attending a discourse by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, of the Kauai Aadheenam in Kauai, Hawaii, USA, I experienced a feeling of hot fire in this area for about four weeks afterwards. As I sat in the vicinity of this Satguru, I was very conscious of his powerful Heart Lotus, and I became aware that it was centred on the right side of his chest. Therefore I am totally convinced of this part of the chest as being the centre of the “Heart”, the Divine, the “Jewel In The Lotus“.
You may like to investigate this for yourself. How does it feel when you bring your awareness to the Heart?
Arunachala Ramana says “The mind should be made to rest in the Heart till the destruction of the ‘I-thought”. (See Collected Works Of Ramana Maharshi, go to the Work called Vichara Sangraham, or Self-Enquiry, Section 36).
These instructions lead to some EFT setups.
“Even though I reside in the Head, I deeply and completely accept myself“.
“Even though I don’t yet permanently reside in the Heart, I deeply and completely accept myself“.
“Even though I am not yet feeling fully integrated with the Divine, I deeply and completely accept myself“.
Many people experience a sense of fear or terror as they approach their true nature, The Divine within. It can feel as if they are about to die. But it is really only the ego that is being destroyed, and the ego is an illusion after all, it doesn’t really exist. Whenever you try and nail down an ego, it disappears.
“Even though integration with the Divine terrifies me, I deeply and completely accept myself“.
The Path Of Devotion Is A Path Of Surrender
This integration is really a surrendering process. You have to surrender everything if you want full enlightenment, spiritual awakening, self realisation. Ego’s typically don’t want to surrender:- “I have to surrender everything? But I spent MY whole life to get all that I have. It’s all MINE.”
“Even though I don’t want to surrender it all to The Divine, I deeply and completely accept myself“.
Celestial Tapping On The Path Of Devotion
And some Celestial Tapping:-
“Even though I reside in the Head, I open into openness“. If you have been following this series of articles in their correct order you will know that the reminder statement for this setup is I open into openness.
“Even though I don’t want to surrender it all to The Divine, I open into openness“.
“Even though I reside in the Head, I open into openness“.
“Even though I don’t yet permanently reside in the Heart, I open into openness“.
“Even though I am not yet fully integrated with the Divine, I open into openness“.
The Path Of Devotion
The path of devotion means being devoted to someone or to something or to God. As the word “God” means something different to each individual, I will refer to the Divinity that is found in the core of your being. As mentioned above, the Path of Devotion also means surrendering to the Divine at the core of your being. Let us, for the sake of this article, refer to this Divinity as The Source Of All Life.
See how you go with this EFT setup:
“I speak to The Source Of All Life and I say, even though I am not aware of my life being your life, let my life be your life“.
Prayer Of Devotion
In this series of articles on devotion I am including an article about using EFT to tap in a prayer of devotion. This prayer of devotion is extraordinarily powerful.
That aspect of The Path Of Devotion Using EFT that includes Surrender using EFT is a big subject and so I have decided to create a new article just for this purpose.
