When we scratch our bodies, we remember but, not while we are in deep sleep. In the same manner, a person in deep silence sees and yet, he does not see. He is ever conscious of his essential divine nature. He can develop double vision of being completely aware as well as not aware. The trace of ignorance remains even in a liberated person until his past karmas wear away. Then there are no more actions taking place, like scratching the body while sleeping. These liberated souls, whose hearts are filled with love, mercy, and the desire to serve the world, can choose to take birth again and again. They need not do any spiritual practices, as they are born with the vision of God. They can merge with the eternal being anytime they wish. — Satish Daryanani
