The more I live, the more I become convinced everyday that every human being is divine. In no man or woman however vile, does that divinity die… You must know what you are, what your real nature is. You must become conscious of that infinite nature within. Then your divine bondage will burst. – Swami Vivekananda
The main idea in Tantra is having faith in oneself, which according to Tantra is equivalent to having faith in God because neither Tantra nor Vedanta views God as something different from the person. Therefore, if we leave aside the idea of God sitting somewhere up in heaven while we are down here faith in God simply means having faith in ourselves, in what we do and express and achieve to the best of our ability—slowly and slowly developing the creative aspect of our personality. – Swami Satyananda Saraswati
What does divine mean? Divine means our connection to God. Divinity is when we are able to connect our inner self with God. When we can surrender ourselves and recognise that we are what we are. We accept ourselves and are empathetic and compassionate.
In order to be able to follow the precepts of the masters, we need to be free of our thoughts. Practice Antar Mouna. Listen to the sounds outside without identifying who or what is making those sounds. Antar Mouna means inner silence and the silence is created because the chatter in your mind has ceased.
