what i understand of divine & devic beings, due to my own experience, is that they have no need to assert their will upon us. they are so open & so pure that their goodness simply flows out of them to permeate all surroundings. one really wants to help them, with a sincere urgency to please such a radiant being. it feels utterly natural to do that which the divine beings ask, for their sincerity & purity is quite inviting when known through subtle direct perception. everything is openly revealed & nothing can be hidden here within this realm of sattvic sacred existence-bliss. all is known spontaneously by telepathy rather than through the clumsy, awkward words of the derivative mind. it is as if now we are all focussed beyond the mind within a shared group experience of truth, felt deeply & intuitively. we are immersed together, & thus we are co-experiencing at the same time in a relaxed & blissful familiarity. in essence, we are consciousness woven together in a fabric of belonging: we are family. it is as if a great, highly evolved being split itself into several entities having specialized, distinctive functions. we each do what comes naturally to us which, by its nature, benefits our divine devic parent. we are aspects of this vaster being, agents who have missions to accomplish when incarnating into the maya of this sad world. hence we are certainly not alone in this existence, even though we may feel temporarily as if we are. the truth will always be revealed in its time. we need only patience & a receptive heart to establish that. this is one thing i was shown in a vision once, & my life experience continues to support it fully. the divine being i am an aspect of is Shiva. He is one who can appear multiple times in many forms, while yet seeming to be distinctly individual. language can only indicate the actual nondual reality, but can't convey it. this is rather like the finger, which is able to point yet cannot grasp. all of that is what i understand of divine & devic beings: it's truly a small amount, yet it marks a positive place to stand for a beginner like me. i do know that wherever i may be, Shiva is not far from me, for in fact, we are at heart one, not two.
