“Veechar” can be defined as being in a state of awareness, knowing and contemplation — as in watching the movie of life to know what to take note of.
A state of Veechar can arise naturally during states of deep meditation, where we can start to gain a “bird’s eye” view of our lives and begin to identify more with our Soul than the Maya of the worldly play.
We can begin to see the play of life and invite in understanding to live for God, rather than “at” others. We can begin to see the soul-level lesson plans at play in our lives and the hand of God working on our behalf for our growth.
This state works on the soul and Subtle Body to release the tensions of over-identifying with the world (maya), and connects us with our purpose and identity as a soul being of God. It allows us to look at what are we here to do as this Soul being, in connection with God at each moment (i.e. here on earth as a representation of God for a divine purpose).
We change our concept of our identity from “being” a human to being a spirit having a human experience. We see that the theology is God is here to serve us, and we are here to serve God — there is no difference, rather than being trapped in the human experience.
