Question
Good day,

In a texts it says:  "Because the unified field of consciousness is your own inner nature you need not look far to find it. It is easily experienced through the practice of deep meditation. All you need to do is to bring your awareness to the deep inner level of unified consciousness, and imbibe that status within your conscious awareness. Operating from that status you gain command and support of all the laws of nature."

When a person reach the inner nature with concious awareness it brings him joy, energy, siddhis, inteligence, wisdom, but why if the inner  nature is not reached by concious awareness it doesnt? If the inner nature is always there why it doest bring always joy and energy to the entity as in the waking state or even sleep? Sadhana and meditation are necessary, the inner nature doesnt shine always.

From a book: "It is by participation of species that we call every sensible object beautiful. Thus, since everything void of form is by nature fitted for its reception, as far as it is destitute of reason and form it is base and separate from the divine reason, the great fountain of forms; and whatever is entirely remote from this immortal source is perfectly base and deformed. And such is matter, which by its nature is ever averse from the supervening irradiations of form. Whenever, therefore, form accedes, it conciliates in amicable unity the parts which are about to compose a whole; for being itself one it is not wonderful that the subject of its power should tend to unity, as far as the nature of a compound will admit. Hence beauty is established in multitude when the many is reduced into one, and in this case it communicates itself both to the parts and to the whole. But when a particular one, composed from similar parts, is received it gives itself to the whole, without departing from the sameness and integrity of its nature. Thus at one and the same time it communicates itself to the whole building and its several parts; and at another time confines itself to a single stone, and then the first participation arises from the operations of art, but the second from the formation of nature. And hence body becomes beautiful through the communion supernally proceeding from divinity."

Answer
1. The Sun is always shining throughout the day; yet why does the presence of a cloud which is less than a billionth of the size of the Sun block light, bringing darkness? It occurs because the cloud comes in the way of our limited vision and the Sun. Does this mean the Sun has lost his brightness? The Sun always continues to maintain his state of light and heat. It is the observer who is afflicted by the illusion that the Sun has dimmed in power, further to the interference of the cloud in the path of vision.

2. If the observer were to occupy a windowless room, no sunlight enters and he will say "There is no Sun, just darkness". The Sun however continues to shine, least affected. The same occurs between one's Atman (self) which is pure consciousness and the Observer (Jiva) who is limited by the clouds of ignorance that constitute the Ego, blocking the individual consciousness's (apparent) merger with the universal stream. Though there is only one Supreme consciousness which occupies all space, time and is beyond these as well, 'Avidya' (ignorance) that constitutes the Ego results in the apparent formation of the individual consciousness which then identifies itself with that (such as the body, mind & world) which it is not. Just as the cloud blocking Sun rays created an illusion of the Sun having dimmed in power, the Ego makes consciousness assume itself limited, separate, and blocks the stream of universal consciousness from reaching the entity.

3. The entity then behaves as a subject interacting with objects, while in reality, there is neither subject nor object but only pure consciousness. The illusion so created is called 'Maya'. When one fully overcomes through Sadhana this apparent 'I-ness', the cause behind a sense of individuality, it will be realized that there is neither subject nor object but only pure consciousness. The world, which is only a mental mirage then disappears to the seer who rests in his true state of pure being. That is the truth, the real state and one's real self. It is of the nature of purity, existence and continuous bliss.

ॐ तत् सत्
(That Supreme being is the absolute truth)

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.

Experience

The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
