As Brahma, Ishvara creates. As Vishnu, He sustains. As Rudra, He draws all back to Himself. Here Ishvara, as Trimurti, guides the reincarnation process as a soul is embodied, grows to manhood, then declines into old age and death, to be reborn again to experience the world and evolve. The author submits that on another scale each day is a birth, an evolving and a death, and each morning we awaken in a fresh and different form.


form, thought and energy. This is sometimes called the atmospheric realm or realm of the Moon in yogic thought. Deep sleep relates to our sojourn in formless, causal realms of seed energy and light. This relates to Heaven, the realm of space or the Sun in yogic teach- ings (Prashna Upanishad). The experience of death and rebirth is much like


sleep, dream and reawakening on a daily level. Death is but a sleep in which we have unembodied dreams and eventually awaken in a new physical incarnation. Each day we undergo a birth and death, as it were. The self that wakes up in the morning is slightly different than the self that went to sleep the night before. We leave something behind every night and take up something new every morning. Most forget this daily change of nature, but for those who are aware it is easy to see. Try to hold a certain thought right before you go to sleep at night and then remember it at the moment you wake up in the morning. It is not uncommon to forget what it was.

the root substance of the universe. If we can remain conscious and observe it, we can penetrate to the ori- gin of creation. We can experience the creation of the universe every day, its unfoldment from pure con- sciousness to gross materiality, through the cosmic Aum vibration. Behind deep sleep is the consciousness of Ishvara,


the Creator, Preserver and Transformer of all, with which our soul is one. We can experience every day how Ishvara creates and absorbs all. This Ishvara is the Adi Guru or original teacher of yoga through the cos- mic vibration Aum, as is taught in the Yoga Sutras. Our individual soul mirrors this cosmic creative process within our mind. Actually, all of eternity is present at every moment in ôK
