What a delicious discovery!  Since prebirth until this very minute, our 5 senses have impressed  upon our brain and nervous system all of our experiences, painful, joyful, loving, brutal.  These accumulate, becoming our "glasses", that is, the way we perceive the world - and most importantly -  the way we perceive ourselves.  This is who we think we are, an accumulation of all we have experienced and thought.

The original, true me, awaits patiently ITS discovery.  We are here to AWAKEN, and when we do, as thousands over millenia have reported, we experience the false or carnal self give way to a Beauty within so incredible we reach in vain for words to describe it. 

This Self becomes our Loving Guide, our Comforter in times of distress, our highway to - God, Love, Divine Mystery, Christ Within - there is no name that can truly describe it.  It is our Ground of Being, our Center, our never failing Presence of Joy, our connectedness with All That Is.  It is our ShangriLa, the Mountaintop where all life meets as One.

Once found, we may temporarily lose touch with IT as everyday life calls to our senses, but having discovered we have an upstairs in what we formerly have thought was our one storey house,  we cannot forget the Serenity, the Completeness, the End of Suffering we have found, and now having found, we will return, bathing and healing once again in our HOME.

The mystic arms of all religions have offered powerful directives to all yearning to be free.  There are variations, but all meet at Mountaintop, declaring LOVE IS THE ANSWER.

In later posts, I will share my own journey of awakening, with one purpose, that others will be served as they reach for the Greater Life.   As each pilgrim finds peace within him/her self, another glorious step toward world peace has been made.

Until then,  Namaste'  (I salute the Divine Self within you)

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" Ralph Waldo Emerson

I notice,  as I observe my thoughts, that not only am I both Christian and Hindu (and others), but also Liberal and Conservative.  (And mostly Independent).

By this, do I mean that I cannot come to a conclusion, or take a strong stand on my beliefs?  Not at all!  It means simply that I find myself capable of seeing and understanding both sides of an issue, be it political, theological or relational.

Though I may feel strongly that one view best serves the Higher Purpose, it doesn't separate me in my mind and heart from those espousing the opposite.  I may react at first and have to wrestle with that lower mind, but soon, as I sincerely will it so, Spirit, or the Higher Mind, takes the field, and I am able to see the integrity and innocence within those holding what I deem a mistaken conclusion.

What is more, my conclusion may prove to be the mistaken one.  If convinced, I will reverse my stand.

From the depths of my soul, I am reminded:   my "enemy" is just as much God's Beloved Child as I am.   With this,  Divine Love floods my Soul and, as I am enfolded once again in that One Love, I am enabled to hold all humankind in that Oneness, thus adding my spark of God to the millions of others who place Peace On Earth as more important than being "right".

Namaste' (I salute the God within you) (or the Christ, the Spirit, the Holiness, the Light or whatever designation is deeply true for you).

We are truly One with the One.  What joy!
