Abridged excerpts from Gurujī’s teachings:
Śiva controls everything by permeating His Power in a special way. For example, the spermatozoon penetrates the ovum and changes its structure so that no other spermatozoon can enter. In the same way, Śiva inoculates His Śakti with something so that it changes and as a result you have your desire coming true. This is a way to explain how Śiva controls everything. He does not say: “Hey Śakti, do this! Hey Śakti, do that!”. It does not work like that. The wish fulfilled by Śakti is a subtle desire that comes from the state of Sadāśiva. He has no ego; at least not like the human ego. He has a Divine ego. It is like you having a spontaneous desire, all of a sudden: “Oh, I like to have it”. Next, you forget about it. Few days after the spontaneous desire, the thing that you desire for will appear in front of you! This will not work if you desire by concentrating on it all the time. Because when you do that, your desire comes from the ego (which is full of limitations) and not from the state of Sadāśiva.
There is this cheat that the universe is independent from you – “There is a big universe outside and I am little in comparison to it”. Don’t believe this cheat. You are Śiva and all this universe is your body. When you have this consciousness that you are the center of all, you are the Samudbhava (Source of all). A Jīvanmukta is one who has this consciousness. The other people do not have this; they all the time give power to the universe – “Oh, the universe is so huge. I am so small in comparison to it”.
It is obvious that you are Śiva. Why? When you see someone, you know. You are one with the knowledge about someone, because otherwise you cannot know anyone. This knowledge about someone or something in front of you is one with this person or object in front of you. Because if it is not so, you cannot know! For example, when you say “That is a tree”, (1) you are one with the knowledge about the tree (because you know that it is a tree!), and (2) the knowledge is one with the tree (because if the knowledge is not one with the tree, it would be knowledge without any relation). So, you are one with the tree!
Therefore, if you can know, you are One. If you know the Sun, you are one with the Sun. Knowledge is the bridge. So, you are one with all! It is obvious. You can demonstrate it with this simple reasoning. Anyway, in practice, you do not believe it. What is this? – Māyā. But this is not Māyā tattva (the sixth tattva); it is Māyāśakti. It is the mysterious Power of the Lord with which He creates duality. Māyā tattva is a by-product of this Power. It is a creation (as it were) of Māyāśakti. This is the cause of two mistakes done by non-liberated beings: (1) rising of this duality, (2) thinking that all which is the not-Self is the Self (for example, void, intellect, body, etc is you). But all this is the outcome (the result) of this Māyāśakti. That’s why what is obvious is very difficult to understand.
