散文 Writings

神聖記憶

臣服是自然的表達,就像愛,它必然會綻放

與神產生關連 , 來自對神的分離感

我們開始對著不知名的較高臨在祈禱

這份連結是神祕而極為熟悉的,如同我們的靈魂一樣古老

我們伸出手的意圖立刻就創造了神聖的連結

我們的靜心成為祈禱,我們的祈禱成為一個親密關連

我們的問題以及希望,被交換成為了引導與恩典

我們感覺到也許我們與神之間沒有正式的分離

我們開始經驗到神的臨在,不只是在我們心中, 而是在環境與空氣裡

這份與神的親密感很快就變成一份與神合一的渴望

在我們身邊,同步與巧合開始發生

我們不知道它們是偶然發生,或是事實上就是我們祈禱的回應

懷疑浮現,但是信念的力量卻更強

我們的祈禱變得強烈,我們試驗神,請求更多的徵兆

徵兆隨之出現了

又有更多的徵兆出現了

忽然之間頭腦變得無法再解釋和明白一切的發生

我們變得像孩子般為奇蹟驚歎

看見恩典無所不在,無所不是

恩典在滿溢

每一秒、每一刻,都是恩典

我們看見了在此刻之前我們什麼也不明白

我們的祈禱成為深深的感激,感激之後便是臣服

我們的臣服是真實的,自然而不虛偽的

一層接著一層,所有與神的分離消融了

忽然間,我們發現我們不再是與神產生關連,而是與自己

我們在自己身上經驗到神的偉大神奇

我們看見一切)分離是個幻相

我們雙膝觸地跪下了

被流瀉而下無限的愛所敞開

人、恩典、神與奇蹟,都是合一

我們瞭解到

神一直都在,充滿了愛,在溫柔的擁抱中一直不斷抱著我們,

如同我們就是祂自己

發現內在之神

住在你內在的神性是我們的內在神

是神性在每一個存在的中心顯化

是我們自己在內在與外在都感受到的神祕臨在

在失落與寂寞的時候

在喜樂與覺醒的時候

是安靜地在我們心中停留守候的存在

一直等待著被注意

一直等待著被發現

永恆的臨在

它是如此古老,與我們的存在一樣接近

它是我們內在居住之神,要尋找到它

就像我們前腳貼著後腳走了千哩路

穿越了許多高山、河流、沙漠與雨水

尋找那雙隱形雙手,在每一步中,在握著我們的手

想要瞭解神就是踏出一步開始與神建立關係

不再是跟一個抽象遠離之神的概念建立關係

而是跟一位親愛的老朋友,一位獨一無二的朋友

這個朋友有至上的愛與關懷

當我們受苦時,這個朋友也跟著受苦

真摯的臨在撫慰了我們

以內在聲音引導著我們

它就是純粹本質、智慧與至高之愛

它就是神的聖潔之光

它就是在我們心中最柔軟之處等待著

不斷地等待又等待

等待我們的回家

Basic Principles on the Spiritual Path

The Path of Self-Realization must encompass the two sides of evolution. There is the personal evolution and transpersonal evolution. Healing and Ascension. There is the need for healing our human side as well as awakening our spiritual side.

There is the process of becoming strong as a self, then a process of dissolving as a self. Before one can transcend the mind, one must be at peace with the mind. Before one can live as free spirit, one must embrace the limitations of being human.

Often seekers lean towards one side and either negate or try to bypass work on the other side.This leads to a clear imbalance with either the human lacking spiritual awareness or it leads to the spiritual seeker disconnected from his human sensitivity.

Opening to outer guidance rapidly moves us into awakening to our own inner guidance. And even still, with all the help we offer each other along the way ~ the map is not the terrain. And so it is, that the union of human effort and divine grace is what guides us smoothly through each windy road of life.

Inner Freedom

Let nothing be undiscovered within,

Be a warrior in your own inner terrain,

Explore every horizon,

Explore every valley,

Explore every deep dark forbidden corner,

Until your are no more afraid to wander anywhere

This would be your freedom.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

The Freedom of Response

In the same way beauty is found in our perception ~ freedom, peace, love, and suffering are also found in one’s perception. The life occurring around you, sometimes just circling around you, sometimes moving forward to make contact, or retreating into the background, life is there to provoke you in every way possible to a higher state of mind, a higher state of being. Standing there, you can move into the swirling winds, by dancing or fumbling, or you may stand in the center and observe, or you may engage fully in the senses and take it all in as a part of your own self, many are the responses we can choose from. What is given to us in life, despite its difficult or simple nature, is given with intelligence. Our work, is to meet with that, with grace, with understanding and an intent to grow from what is reaching out to us. Suffering comes from resistance to what is, Freedom comes from acceptance of what is. Love comes from the full experiencing of what is.

The Divine Presence

There is a divine presence that lives inside you. It is this aspect of divinity that manifests in the center of every being.  It is the mysterious presence we sense around us and within us in times of loss and aloneness. It is this which abides quietly in our heart, ever waiting for our notice, ever waiting for our discovery, timelessly present – so ancient, as close as our very being.  It is like having traveled countless miles, endless lifetimes winding our way through mountain, river, desert and rain in search for the unseen hand that has been holding ours with every step….

To know the divine, is to begin relating with the divine. It is relating, not to an abstract notion of God, light or the universal, but like to an old and dear friend, a friend like none other, a friend whose love and concern is supreme, a friend who suffers wholly as we suffer. It is this heartfelt presence that comforts us in thought and guides us as our inner voice. It is essence, wisdom and love supreme, the heavenly light of God ~ God himself waiting in the soft of our heart, waiting, waiting and ever waiting without end for our return….

 About Faith

Unconditional faith is keeping the faith even when you have no reason to. It is believing and trusting when you have nothing to believe in, and nothing to trust in. It is to be wise and innocent at the same time.

It is easy to keep the faith and praise the Lord when all things are going our way. But then why do we revoke our faith, the moment our needs do not get met; which is not to even say they are not being met at a higher level, anyway. Why is our faith so cheap, that we return it the instant our dreams are dashed? It was never faith to begin with, it was only a spiritual concept we used to entertain ourselves, and tossed when it no longer did.

Faith like love, is unconditional when it is true. That is to say, even when there is absolutely no reason to keep faith, your faith remains. Even when nothing makes sense, even when no higher reason could possibly explain this terrible chapter in your life, still you have faith that some intelligence is guiding your life towards a greater good. Real faith is to sit back and suspend your judgment as your life flows past the screen of your consciousness. Allowing the wider circumstance to reveal itself, knowing faith cannot be shaken from that height.

The Goal of Consciousness and Relationship Within Consciousness

Consciousness wants to awaken fully to itself. It wants to have a full experience of its wholeness.

We go to sleep at night, sometimes desiring to sleep in deep empty silence, sometimes wanting to experience a story graze the screen of consciousness. The preference is inconsequential. Either consciousness desires a blank slate, or a dynamic dance of images upon itself.
When we decide upon engagement, upon the dance, then the work of consciousness is to explore its every variant thread.

Each person or thing outside the self, is a part of the self projected outward looking back. We meet with that, in order that it might help us to remember, this part of our own self. It engages with us, such that we awaken the part of ourselves, that the other symbolizes. If they are joy, then to be them, we experience joy in their presence. They help us to know what energy to develop within ourselves. Each one is there to remind us what we need to tend to within, until the point we meet with them inside our own selves. Then the dance subsides, and there is just a stillness in meeting.
