Reflective Writing and the Experience of Transcending
All writing, of course, comes from consciousness. Any ideas, thoughts, or feelings we have spring from our own consciousness. Mind is the entity that we generally give credit to for our ideas, mind being considered some construct of the human brain that does our thinking for us. This perception of how we write leaves out, to some extent, the feeling level as well as the role that memory plays in our process of writing. The cognitive sciences can map certain stages of the thinking or writing process for us but don’t yet provide the whole picture.

How Writing and Transcending Differ
Writing is an avenue for expressing our creativity, our imagination, even our logic. It does not, however, by itself, create enlightenment. To create enlightenment, an individual must be able to transcend the thinking process, to go beyond the level of the intellect and experience pure consciousness, the state of Transcendental Consciousness. Writing, by its own nature, must remain on the level of the intellect if a person is to produce words on paper or on a screen.

Following the Master’ Steps
The word Master ranges in meaning from perfecting to controlling to owning. One could perfect a skill, control a situation, or, in the past, even own people (oh, the karma there!). In India, the word Master suggests a deeper level of perfecting, owning, and controlling–when those abilities are directed inward. A Master develops his (or her) own inner Being, the Self, coming to know that deep level of silence at the source of all creation. A rare few are able to know this experience so fully that they are able to lead others to this experience. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was such a Master.
