Senses , Illusion and Meditation
Man is so attached to his 5 senses that he forgets about the sixth sense, a sense with which we all have the ablity to perceive absolute existance. To dwell there is another story but threw meditation and many yogic practices along with living a normal daily life one can achieve a good sense of self and knowledge about the true Almighty. There are different forms threw which one can calm his mind to the point that no external or internal stimulus may distrub it, and at such points one can direct his focus on God and the True Absolute and learn about Him. It is a hard concept for some to grasp and easy for a few others. However, the main point being meditation threw dedication in practice. This is acceptable in all faiths and one and try to achieve this state and however he or she may find it comfortable.
Coming about to the topic of senses, we are all so attached with feeding our 5 senses that we do not really have much time in this world to admire the magic and power of the 6th. The sense of taste overtakes us into eating un-healhty food. One would find it funny to know that all food once gulped down the throat ends up having no taste. However we become what we eat, a healthy diet makes us healthy individuals. The sense of touch is satified by sensual pleasures or threw other means etc etc and the list goes on. So basically all these senses bind us to the mortal relams. I am not trying to imply that one should quit using all his or her senses but rather one should (when time permits) using disciplined approaches try to oversee these five sense and look deep with in himself or herself to bring alive the sixth sense and then work with this sense.
One thing I'm quite certain about is the fact that the true sixth sense is never wrong. Infact, we might think it is wrong since we do not believe in it, however it is not wrong. We judge right and wrong based on our happiness. When situations are such that we feel happy or our ego feels citified we term them as correct or bring about means to justify them as being correct and vice versa. But the sixth sense is always correct, it is a sense that does not know the meaning of EGO nor does it know the meaning of illusion. Einstein once put it quite correctly - Reality is an illusion, albeit a very presistant one. So once a person subparts the elements of EGO, illussion and a few other things, one approaches absolution.
