The eduverse resident – Ananya Mahadevan.

she filled forms, I don’t mean those one-paged little thingies with some fill-ups, I mean paperwork, hefty paperwork, The kind which made me realize that school didn’t teach me everything in grammar! Oh, my days! I swam in that forgotten ocean of Wrenin Martin, something I thought I wouldn’t see after school, but you know what?

The book followed me with a passion and the objective of making my brain do some pull-ups on the pull-up bar and taught me things I never knew before! I didn’t know sentences had stress hey I thought it was just for humans! Hold up, I also didn’t know that I could teach!

I can definitely be a great student sitting physically there my mind running through a field of rose petals falling and a handsome prince just waiting to purpose! But hey only for that super duper boring lecture where the teacher will sing the lesson, like some classical music piece will unprecedented intonation rises!

she got accepted into the course! She heaved a gigantic sigh of relief and she really didn’t know her life was about to flip itself on the head and off she went on an adventure to the recesses of the unknown! Thus began the life of the eclectic Celta trainee.

She gathered her things excited and elated and bolted out of the door like a superbike on a national highway. Excited to meet fellow trainees and tutors she made her way through the library’s colourful corridors and into the eclectic world of celta. Now, this chirpy butterfly had no idea that she had to teach, and when she got that shocker it sent shivers down her spine!

The sponge that she was, she absorbed all her tutors gave her and added it to the knowledge arsenal, she was secretly building! This one is a smart one, don’t underestimate her ok!

Like a feather that falls on new ground, she felt out of place in her first teaching practice for the nerves built up like the ocean on a high tide in her mind and heart! you guessed right! she couldn’t believe that she could teach! wow, she did something she never thought she ever would! She was that silent child who would sit in a corner with nothing to say just doodling away all day!

But the butterfly became a colourful one and got through slowly soaring through the skies painting it pink wherever her dainty wings took her! as each teaching practice went by.

Miss butterfly won the hearts of her fellow trainees and students pretty fast! Everyone warmed up to her like a confectionary on a creamy chocolate cake! Of course, everyone knew miss butterfly was a kid herself and they found her adorable!

Pranayama – Ananya Mahadevan.


Pranayama is the practice of breath regulation or breath control in Yoga.

“Prana” is the vital energy in the body. On subtle levels prana represents the pranic energy responsible for life. “Ayama”, refers to the extension of breath.

One can control the flow of pranic energy with pranayama and can achieve a healthy body and mind.

The whole concept of Pranayama is based on the link between breath and mind.

Breath is said to be the vehicle of mind , hence , when the breath is slow and deep, the mind gets transported to a calm and tranquil state.


Pranayama uses the assistance of the breath, to expand and direct the flow of prana through various energy channels, referred to as ‘nadi’s in our bodies.


Pranayama is an ancient practice of breathing which has been around since the foundation of Yoga, dating back to the fifth and sixth centuries.

Prana Vayus-

Based on the flow of the Prana in a particular region of the body, There are 5, prana vayus.Prana vayu- ( vitality breath.)

The Prana vayu is the energy , which maintains our hearts ,lungs, breathing, swallowing and blood circulation.

Prana vayu, is the life force energy which drives our lives forward.

The Prana Vayu, is governed by the element of air.

Apana vayu- ( The anchor of breath.)

The Apana vayu is situated between the abdomen and pelvic floor.

The Apana vayu is governed by the element of Earth.

The Apana vayu is responsible for the process of procreation. It governs the functions of the genitals, bladder, colon and rectum.

Samana Vayu – ( The breath of balance.)

The samana Vayu is situated in the abdominal area. It is governed by the element of fire.

Samana Vayu, is the energy that seperates the nutrients from toxins in the body.

Samana Vayu, is responsible for the stabilization of the Prana and Apana vayu.

Udana Vayu – ( Breath of ascent.)

The Udana Vayu, is situated within the throat and head, and is governed by the element of Ether.

The Udana Vayu , corresponds to the throat ( Visudhi chakra) and the third eye ( Agna Chakra) and balances the ether element.

The Udana Vayu is the Vayu for meditation.

Vyana vayu – ( integration of breath.)

The vyana vayu, corresponds with the navel and sacral ( swadishtana) Chakra and aids in the balance of the water element.

Emanating from the navel, vyana vayu is present all over the body, connecting the body with the Swadishtana Chakra and is governed by the element of water.

Tapas.

The purpose of Tapas is to eliminate the impurities present within our physical bodies and within our minds as well.
While,

Pranayama is not an austere form of Tapas, it truly fulfils the purpose of purifying and eliminating from our bodies, the perils of negativity and suffering.

The only daughter musings – Ananya Mahadevan.

A shimmer of sparkle, a dash of light and the splattering of incessant rainfall, lo and behold fell a bundle of cuteness and joy into the world.

She looked up at the world with eyes oozing with innocence and a charming smile, which won the hearts of her onlookers.

She was her families shining star, since her inception into this mesmerising world, She was quite the master at reigning hearts.

The only daughter musings………..

There is no better feeling, in the world !!!!!!!! being ,the only girl child in my family has been the facilitation for the creation of many bonds with various family members, I share intimate close knit bonds with.

As time flew, bridges once built, stood the test of time. Love , grew from pond to ocean and as time went by, everyone one who once loved her, never stopped for they were deeply etched in the spirit of her charm.

She evolved with time into the most beautiful woman in her own close knit world.

Non duality- Ananya Mahadevan.

The understanding of non- duality, addresses fundamental life questions: –

‘How can we be liberated of suffering and find lasting peace and happiness? ‘What is the nature of reality?’

In relation to the first question, the non-dual approach ,suggests that happiness is our fundamental nature, or simply put we are the embodiments of happiness.

A question now arises, if happiness is primary to our nature, why is it not experienced all the time?

And the answer is simply this, all people have some semblance of knowing their self, but not all people have a vivid self understanding.

It is this absence of self-knowledge that is responsible for the feeling of depravation that accompanies most people’s lives and that drives them to seek fulfilment in objects, states of mind and relationships.

Recognition of reality…………………

This clear knowledge of the self, forms the prerequisite towards the recognition that our reality is an infinite, indivisible whole, comprised of pure consciousness, from which all objects and selves borrow their apparent independent existence.

The nature of the mind.

Everything we know or experience is channeled through the mind, and therefore, the mind’s knowledge of anything can only ever be as good as its knowledge of itself.

In order to know what anything truly is – that is, what reality truly is – the mind must first know its own nature.

Therefore, the quest to unravel the nature of the mind must be the greatest task upon which the mind can embark, and the knowledge of its nature the most superior knowledge.

whether we approach non-duality as a means of finding eternal peace and happiness or, more philosophically, as an answer to the ultimate question about the nature of reality,

Non duality – The self perspective.

It begins with an investigation into the nature of our self.

The religious view of Non Dualism.

This understanding is found at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, and is expressed in the particular language of the time and place in which it came to exist .

For instance, in Christianity it is said, ‘I and my Father are one’. That is, the essence of our self and the ultimate reality of the universe are the same.

In the Sufi tradition, ‘Whosoever knows their self knows their Lord’. That is, whoever knows the essential nature of their self knows the ultimate reality of the universe, and in Buddhism, ‘Samsara and Nirvana are one’, meaning the nature of the world and the essence of the mind are identical.

Happiness is a big smile- Ananya Mahadevan.

we have the power within us to create a smile and there is a lot of power in that expression. Whenever we smile at someone else they are very likely to start smiling too because a smile is infectious.

Try it. Tilt up the corner of your lips at someone on the street and the odds are that you will make that person grin back at you!!!!!! When they smile back then they too will feel a wave of happiness flood throughout their being.

For a little while the physical and emotional aches and pains will miraculously fade away. we have the power within us to change lives and all we have to really do is smile.

you smile at someone and they at another person and then that person at someone else, and so the change begins. You have the power to make the world a nicer place to live in and all you have to do is smile!!!!!!!!

The Power to Change Lives……………

A powerful smile, can work magic. It can heal and it can remove pain. There is a wealth of magic within the human chemistry of this act. When you smile at another person you not only let them feel that they are appreciated but you also give them encouragement as well.

When you smile at another person you pass all the wonderful benefits of smiling on to that person. This simple expression has the power to calm . It has the power within it to change the world because this simple act of kindness can be easily shared. Smiles are contagious!!!!!!!!!

A Wonderful Way to Share Happiness!!!!!!!!

A smile is one of the most powerful gifts that you can give to another person. That one simple gesture has the ability to lift another into a feeling of intense enjoyment!!!!! When you share a smile you share happiness!!!!!!

What an amazing gift to give to another. It is a gift that is beyond value, it is a simple commodity that we can be selflessly shared. There is tremendous power in a smile and sharing one can be the nicest thing you do.

Because this expression is universal to every land language. Most people regardless of country or culture understand what an upward tilting of the lips means!!!!! Smile at the world and it smiles back!!!!!!

A successful battle with Dengue.Ananya Mahadevan.

As I returned home one day from school , and ate my evening snack, I was hit by a severe wave of nausea.

I threw up whatever went in as my snack and began shivering uncontrollably.

My body had been hit by a severe wave of weakness and I felt faint. My blood test results suggested I had contracted dengue.

A visit to the hospital confirmed the same, when they took more blood samples and checked my vitals.

My platelet count was alarmingly low along with my RBC and WBC counts as well.

A paediatrician, a dear friend to my parents requested my immediate hospitalisation.

She said if “she isn’t hospitalized soon, it may become life threatening since her platlet count and other vitals are low.”

It was much later on , that I understood what hospitalisation meant. I had no understanding of it at that time.

I was admitted initially to the emergency ward of the hospital and was started on an immediate dose of intravenous fluids.

As the Ivy went through my nerves I felt an unbearable stinging sensation on my nerves.

Seeing the blood travel up the tube made me sad as I didn’t understand why it was happening.

As I lay down on the hospital bed, I hoped to get better and be home the following day, but it took me ten days to go back home.

This disease doesn’t have a cure,

since it is similar to a viral infection I was made to drink a lot of fluids apart from the intravenous fluids which were already going into my body.

I wasn’t able to get out of the hospital bed without any help. My mom had to hold me up and take me to the washroom with her.

My body was very weak. I wasn’t able to even keep my eyes open or even take a proper breath without feeling any discomfort.

My fever was really high. I found eating difficult as I had lost the appetite to eat. I was given food by the hospital, consisting mostly of semi solid Dal rice.

This was the first time I had an ultrasound, it was quite wierd to have a jelly like fluid on my stomach.

The ultrasound stick felt cold against my skin. It was quite amazing to look at monitor and see what was really going on inside my little body.

The hospital smells were really confusing, with the smell of sterile fluids, medicinal fluids and food.

I was moved to another ward from the emergency ward, as there were too many sick people there.

I was put in a wheelchair for the first time and was taken in an elevator to my new ward, called the sunshine ward.

Every morning in my new ward would start with the nurses drawing infected blood from my body followed by a warm sponge bath.

Given my serious condition, the hospital told my parents to leave me behind and come back after I was recovered.

My mom stayed like a rock beside me and didn’t leave me by myself even though she was asked to.

She was the reason I could survive being hospitalised. Her love gave me hope and I knew I wasn’t alone in this battle against dengue.

My mom would make me watch animated movies and would always tell me I would be better soon.

My father and little brother visited me everyday to see how I was. This was the part I looked forward too each day.

I can’t describe my exact feelings, as I was only ten years old. When this happened to me.

I remember feeling extremely sad and helpless initially, as during this battle the fighter spirit took quite a while to come.

However when it finally came, I realised quite fast that I was the ray of sunshine who could cure my gloomy situation.

I became quite brave and strong towards the end of this difficult battle. I came out stronger fully recovered, no relapses.

Chanting and Yoga – Ananya Mahadevan.

Chanting is a form of Pranayama, as chanting is done mostly on exhalation. Chanting helps an individual to tap deeper into the layers of his being, thereby facilitating a smooth connection with the force of the divine.


Chanting is an integral part of Ashtanga, it also falls under the category of Swadhyaya which is self-reflection.


Chanting deepens the practice of Yoga, thereby elevating the levels of an individual’s consciousness.
It significantly helps in the calming of the mind. Chanting is often regarded as Yoga of the mind.


The power of OM.
In the Hindu tradition, the sound of OM is said to embody the entire universe, it is the first sound since the beginning of time and it also encompasses the present and the future.
OM is a seed syllable used as a catalyst to facilitate the creation of a heightened vibration.


The repeated chanting of OM, helps the individual integrate with the vibration of the mantra, thereby aiding his ascension with the divine.


OM according to the ancient texts.
In the Rig Veda, Rishi Vamadeva’s mantra describes OM, as transcendental.
He further describes Om as:- Samudra- Sea.
Aparimita – endless.
Rooprahita- shapeless.
Sarvavyapi – omniscient.

The Mandukya Upanishad describes OM as Brahma. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali describe OM as Ishwara Pranidhana.


Mantra Yoga.
Mantra Yoga has its origin in the Vedic sciences and also in Tantra, in fact, all the verses in Vedas are called mantras, it is said that any person who can chant the Vedas can achieve the ultimate salvation.


Mantra Yoga is a pathway leading to Prathyahara, that is de-focussing the mind from the external world and focusing on inner consciousness.


Mantra yoga is a type of yoga that uses mantras to awaken the Self and deepen the meditative aspects of a physical yoga practice.


Mantra yoga is a fulfilling and satisfying experience, that is meant to engage the mind through focusing on sound, duration and number of repetitions.


Repetition of the mantras is a means to get closer to the divinity within, and it creates positive vibrations that benefit both the one who chants and the one who listens.


Mantra yoga eliminates rajas as well as tamas, this allows the practitioner to move into a more pure state of consciousness. Chanting mantras calms the mind, brings focus and is great for controlling the breath. Mantra yoga is highly beneficial to the practitioner as it improves overall health and mental stability.


Conclusion.
To conclude

As a long time student of Yoga,
I am in complete agreement with the proposition, Chanting is Yoga, as I believe that chanting and Yoga share a harmonious symbiotic bond, as one ceases to exist without the other.


“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self , to the self.” – The Bhagavad Gita.

Itihasa – Ananya Mahadevan.

Ithihasa (Iti- ha-tasa)- is the narration of real life incidents.
This consists of the Chronologically written description of important, special events of the person, society, country, chronological analysis of facts and events,these include the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, which have been regarded and quoted as famous and popular epics of the time.


Vedavyasa was the author of the Mahabharata and Valmiki wrote the Ramayana.
These epics were written at the time, at which the events corresponding to them took place.
Vedavyasa , was the son of Satyavati and Rishi Parashara and the step brother of Bhisma. He was called Krishna Dwai Payanar. Previously all the four Vedas were in one amalgamous unit.
He is responsible for separating the Vedas and giving them the nomenclature we know them by today, Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda, this is how he came to be known as Vedavyasa.
Valmiki , was a hunter, who subsequently became a robber to meet the needs of his rapidly growing family.
He was turned into a sage by Narada, who taught him the holy word Ram. Narada visited Maharishi Valmiki in his ashram once and there he narrated the story of Lord Rama.
After that, he received a vision from Lord Brahma in which the Lord instructed him to write Ramayana in shlokas, which the sage readily followed.
He wrote the Ramayana and passed on the knowledge to Luv and Kush, the sons of Lord Ram and Sita.
He asked them to narrate it in front of Lord Rama’s court, this narration of the Ramayana is the story as we know it today.
This is how both epics Ramayana and Mahabharata came to be known as Itihasa.

Stories from the Ramayana
( A personal understanding and in depth analysis.)
The Ramayana written by sage Valmiki, is one of the most resplendent narrations of the triumphant war between good and evil. The epic is a repository of a magnificent collection of stories long and short which are laden with significant values , which we can integrate into our thought processes as well as follow in our lives.

The Story of Shabari.

There was a beautiful and grand lake called Pampasar near Shabari’s Guru’s Ashram. Shabari who was now very old went to the lake with her pot made up of mud to collect water, there was a rishi sitting there with a long beard and matted hairs chanting mantras, he was old and was reciting the mantras in a haphazard manner.
He heard this outcast woman filling the divine water of the lake.
He thought “This low caste woman is making the water impure for our use”, as the stereotype predominantly prevalent at the time stated that any body who was from the lower caste, would be considered and treated as an untouchable, by those who belonged to the higher castes.
Enraged on seeing Shabari filling water from the lake, he threw a stone at her in anger, it hit her leg and the blood came out, a drop of blood fell into the lake, within seconds all the water in the lake became filled with blood.
Rishi started shouting loudly “Look, a drop of this outcast’s blood has turned the whole lake into blood, what should we do now?”
Shabari went to her Ashram with her filled pot, still crying with pain. The Rishis had no water to drink or to use for the sacred rites. They started chanting purification mantras, doing Yagnas and Havanas, throwing holy powders into the lake but nothing helped. The Water still remained bloody. They brought water from Ganga, it was of no use, they brought Yamuna water, it was also of no use.
Someone in the group said, “Lord Rama has come, he is wandering in the forest, he can help us, let’s go to him and pray to him to turn this blood into water again”.
Rama came upon their request to Pampa sarovar, it was red everywhere, the rishis were standing around him.
Rama asked “What can I do for you now?”
The Rishis said “Lord, the touch of your feet will change this blood filled water back to normal, Rama walked into the lake but the blood still stayed blood.
“Take a dip in it Lord” said the rishis gathered there.
Rama took a dip in it, but nothing changed..
“Lord, it is our last wish. Would you please clean your mouth with it and spit back into it” they requested.
Rama took the blood with both hands, “But this is blood brother” said Lakshman, Rama took blood in his mouth and spat it back, but that did not change the lake.
Rama asked them “Tell me How did it become blood?”
One of the rishis said “There was a sage living here, he had an outcaste disciple Shabari, he has died, but she still lives, she came to fetch water from this lake, a rishi threw a stone at her, it injured her and a drop of her blood fell into the river, it turned all the water into blood”.
Rama on hearing the name of Shabari placed both of his hands on his heart and said, “ Oh rishis, that was not Shabari’s blood, that was the blood from my heart, I can not clean this.”
They said, “Lord our life has become difficult, we can not live without this water”.
“I have come to see her, bring her to me, send someone to bring her”.
One of them went to Shabari and said “Lord Rama has come and he is requesting for you”.
Shabari on hearing Lord Rama’s name came running to see him, The rishis thought her impure shadow should not touch the Lord and tried to stop her. The soil from her feet fell into the water as she was running hastily, blood turned back into water. Everyone was surprised and were asking themselves “What happened? what happened?”
Lord Rama said “Did you see, dust from Shabari’s feet has purified the lake. I bathed in it, cleaned my mouth but nothing changed. Dust from the feet of a true devotee has purified the lake”.


Shabari was an elderly woman hermit, who was the disciple of Sage Matanga, who took her under his tutelage as his student, as he was impressed by her devotion towards seeking knowledge. She was rejected by the other sages, as she was from a lower caste.
Shabari worked in the ashram while learning from Sage Mathanga. When Sage Mathanga was close to shedding his mortal coil, he told Shabari that he was old and was going to die very soon. He then blessed her for her hard work, discipline and devotion.
When she expressed her desire to meet and be blessed by the divine, Sage Mathanga asked Shabari to wait for Lord Rama to come and bestow his blessings on her. Shabari was overjoyed to hear these words from her teacher.
She kept the ashram immaculately clean and ready to host everyday.
She waited for many years until the day Lord Rama arrived with his brother Lakshman. Shabari’s joy knew no bounds, she was overjoyed to see the two brothers. She gave them a warm reception and made them comfortable in her small ashram.
She went out to the ashrams garden to pluck the best of fruits to offer her much awaited guests.
She bit into the fruits making sure to only keep the delectable ones in her basket, while discarding the bitter fruits. This action of Shabaris did not go down well with Lakshmana, as he wanted to know why Lord Rama happily ate the fruits Shabari had bitten into.
Lord Rama then explained to him that it was an expression of pure love and devotion. Without Shabari expressing it, He also tells Lakshmana that she was ensuring that no sour or tasteless fruits are offered to them and that he would accept it with great joy. Rama wholeheartedly blesses Shabari and continues his journey to find his wife Sita.
The values learnt from the story of Shabari- ( A personal understanding.)
This story is an embodiment of all the values which are integral to the fabric of human relationships, these values are integral for the building of a healthy bond and paves way for the making of long lasting deep relationships.
Values such as love, devotion, commitment and loyalty are essential for the sustenance of any relationship and it is vital for us to imbibe these values, integrate them into our thought processes and put them into practical application.
The story of Shabari is a vivid and resplendent representation of the above mentioned values, which are the Dharmic values and important life lessons we can learn from this story.
This is reflected in her relationship with her teacher sage Mathanga and her interaction with Lord Ram and his brother Lakshman when they visit her hermitage.
The most important value in this story is accepting a person for who they are and treating them with reverence.
The story teaches us that relationships are embodiment of mutual respect, love and genuine care.
It teaches us to look beyond the ascribed status of the person, as this is inherently a part of the person’s life and it cannot be changed.

The story of Jatayu.
When Ravana was taking Sita away to Lanka in his flying chariot, Jatayu, the wise old bird, was resting in the forest. Hearing Sita’s helpless screams, Jatayu flew to Ravana’s chariot.
Jatayu was a great devotee of Rama. He could not keep quiet at the plight of Sita, although the wise bird knew that he was no match for the mighty Ravana. But he was not afraid of Ravana’s strength even though he knew that he would get killed by obstructing the path of Ravana.
Jatayu decided to save Sita from the clutches of Ravana at any cost. He stopped Ravana and ordered him to leave Sita, but Ravana threatened to kill him if he interfered.
Chanting Rama’s name, Jatayu attacked Ravana with his sharp claws and hooked beak.
His sharp nails and the beak tore flesh from the body of Ravana. Ravana took out his diamond-studded arrow and fired at Jatayu’s wings.
As the arrow hit, the frail wing tore off and fell, but the brave bird continued fighting irrespective of the injuries he had sustained.
With his other wing he bruised Ravana’s face and tried to pull Sita from the chariot. The fight went on for quite some time. Soon, Jatayu was bleeding from the wounds all over his body.
Finally, Ravana took out one huge arrow and shot Jatayu’s other wing as well. As it hit, the bird fell on the ground, bruised and battered.
Jatayu wanted to meet Rama in his last moments before he died and tell him about Sita. So, even while he was dying, he went on repeating the name of Rama.
Rama and Lakshmana met Jatayu on their way to rescue Sita, they found him badly injured with blood oozing out of all the scratches on his body,which he sustained from his battle with Ravana.
The ailing Jatayu narrated how he tried to rescue Sita from Ravana when he heard her screams, when Ravana was carrying her away on his flying chariot. He also told Rama about his fight with Ravana to save Mother Sita.
The valiant Jatayu, breathed his last with his head on Ramas lap and he attained salvation.
The values learnt from the story of Jatayu – ( A personal understanding.)
The story of Jatayu, is a resplendent illustration of how bravery determination and self conviction can determine the thoughts and actions of an individual.
The story is a resplendent example, of how a strong mind and a profound sense of determination , can help an individual overcome any obstacle he might inevitably face.
The story also teaches us , that even if we face adversity in our lives, we should be confident enough in our own ability to get out of adversity instead of avoiding it and running away from it.
Sometimes the fight to overcome adversity may not be that simple, sometimes we may have to endure hardships to achieve a successful outcome, individuals should have a strong sense of conviction and not give up, until they achieve the desired outcome.
We also learn that not all decisions are based on emotions. Sometimes we need to separate emotions from our thoughts so that we can make a well informed decision.
Jatayu has immense unconditional love for Rama, but he does not let that come in the way of his efforts to rescue Sita as he knows he may have to sacrifice his life to rescue her.
The story of Jatayu also teaches us that self conviction is vital for any individual to overcome adversity, and it is one of the fundamental prerequisites for any individual to be successful.

Conclusion –
The Itihasa is a repository of stories laden with significant moral values, which we can imbibe and put to practical application in our daily lives.
Each story belonging to Itihasa teaches us life lessons, which are integral for the survival of man, as well as for the fulfilling sustenance of all his relationships.
It is one of the most resplendent narrations of all the historic events which have taken place across time.

Unlock your quantum potential in this game called life – Ananya Mahadevan .



From FB Page : You are another me.
If you are, then the invisible force is being expressed through you! Call it existence or consciousness and you can even see it!

It is about in invisible waves that we cannot see from our eyes, but if we are experiencing output from these gadgets then it is a proof that they are working and invisible waves become visible through them.
Same is with us, with nature around us and with things around us. If we can feel them, observe them, or if they are growing or moving etc then it is sure that there is an invisible force behind them. So if I see myself into mirror then actually I am able to see that invisible energy which is being expressed through me. That infinite source or existence or consciousness or reality or self is just expressing itself through all creatures, things around us.
Only a human being is given gift of exhibiting quantum state like atom. But there are very few who unlock this power in video or VR game called human life. Since most of us possess only one state, so we could see only particle state of atom. It is not that atom is changing itself from wave to particle upon observing that we are watching it, but it is our inability to see the wave form of it.
In a double slit experiment because we observe the atom becomes particle otherwise it behaves as wave.
I wish to add: Since we have yet to unlock our power to exhibit the quantum state so actually we are not able to see the wave form and treat it as invisible. Awakening or enlightenment is like unlocking the power to exhibit or see both the states of atom. Mystics all around the world have unlocked that power and have said that living human life after unlocking that power from within is bliss, ecstatic and ultimate freedom.
It is my experience too that the mind is biggest hurdle to unlock that power, it keeps us in past or future while this power could only be unlocked when we are totally, intensely available in present moment.
Osho suggested that for contemporary people practice of awareness meditation is simplest method that can be of great help in unlocking this hidden power within. I practiced it for 20+ years and found it miraculously h

The roads less traversed-by, Ananya Mahadevan.

He went down that less traversed road wanting , to lose himself to the recesses of the desolate road,

 hoping to find all that was residing within the recesses of his soul.

Deep thoughts within the recesses of his mind made him remember, those entrenched thoughts, he was yearning to find.

He sat amidst the tranquil silence of this deserted road, eyes closed waiting for those entrenched thoughts to unfold,

 oblivious of what lay around him,as he sat in tranquil silence focussed and immersed only in his thoughts.

He only heard the sound of his resounding heartbeat, and the calming sounds of his tranquil mind, hoping to be surprised with his find.

For the tranquility around him, helped him find, what  was truly entrenched deep within the recesses of his mind and soul, courage to travel down this less traversed road.
