Knowledge, desire, etc, exist not only within me, but everywhere in jars, and other objects.” With this belief, one becomes omnipresent.Verse 105, Vigyan Bhairava Tantra
The Three Energies of God
This verse is a variation of the previous one. Knowledge, desire, etc, exist not only within me, but everywhere in jars, and other objects.” In Kashmir Shaivism, God is said to have three main energies. The energy of knowledge, the energy of action, and the energy of will or desire. The words, knowledge, desire, etc. used in this verse refer to the energies of God. What the verse is basically saying is that God’s energy exists not only within me, but everywhere, in jars and other objects. There are two things implied in this sentence.
First, I am not my body, I am energy – the energy of God. Second, this same energy exists everywhere, in jars and other objects. Therefore, all matter, living or inanimate, is composed of energy, God’s energy. Nothing else exists, only God’s energy exists. This energy is everywhere. Everything is composed of this energy. Since I am nothing but this energy, and this energy exists everywhere, I am everywhere. This verse is basically saying the same thing the previous verse said – believe I am everywhere. The difference here is that this verse is giving the truth behind this belief. It is explaining the reason why this belief is true. Everything in the world is nothing but God’s energy. Since you are this energy, you exist everywhere. The verse can also be read in the following way – Energy exists not only within me, but everywhere in jars and other objects. Or simply put -I exist everywhere, or I am everywhere. With this belief, one becomes omnipresent. When you believe you are omnipresent (exist everywhere), you become omnipresent. A belief has to become reality. There is no other choice in this matter. Whatever we believe must become real. When we believe we are omnipresent, we become omnipresent. We realize our true nature and become God.
