Devotee; Through Poetry, music, bhajana, the sight of beautiful landscapes, reading the lines of spiritual verses, etc., one experiences sometime a true sense of all unity. Is that feeling of deep blissful quiet the same as the entering into the heart of which Maharishi speaks? Will practice thereof lead to a deeper Samadhi and so ultimately to a full vision of the Real?.
Maharishi Ramana; There is a happiness when agreeable things are presented to the mind.It is the happiness inherent in the self and there is no other happiness. And it is not alien and afar. You are diving into the Self on those occasions which you consider pleasurable; that diving results in Self-existent Bliss.But the association of idea is responsible for foisting that bliss on other things or occurrences while, in fact, that Bliss is within you. On these occasions you are plunging into the Self, through unconsciously. If you do so consciously, with the conviction that comes from the experience that you are identified with the happiness which is verily the Self, one Reality, you call it Realization. I want you to dive consciously into the Self, into the heart.
