The Self in Merging with Siva

A reader of Merging with Siva asks Gurudeva about his references to the Self in the book. Is it always in reference to Parasiva, the timeless, formless, causeless Absolute Reality? Gurudeva tells us that our reason for being on Earth is to realize the Self, and that the first realization is Satchidananda. The more advance realization is Parasiva. MWS refers to both realizations, and the reader must read carefully to distinguish.

"Tomorrow I shall wake up filled with energy, creatively alive and in tune with the universe." Say this several times to yourself and feel the spiritual force begin to move, the life force begin to move, within your body.
—Gurudeva
