One of this web page’s followers commented in a personal email that, “Perhaps my problem has been my fear and that going with the flow would assuage all this.”
By “all this” he meant the depressing view we both hold of the human race’s repetitive history.
The Head of the Sufi organisation I was initiated into had a remedy.
He suggested we initiates deal with the world by remembering that though we were spiritual beings we were still partly human until our fully awakening process was over.
Subsequently I have come to know more about my evolution into pure spirit. As this process develops in me the human condition becomes less relevant. Humans became a lessening aggravation. I never felt fear of letting go. I had no choice, it just happened. I didn’t have, nor could I have ‘grasped’ or ‘reached’ for my mystical experiences of Reality, nor for the spiritual gifts that have come ever since the phenomena.
Now I wonder if human death is there to take us into an even greater refinement, into a fuller experience completely detached from the human condition, maybe a final absorption into Reality and Reality into us?
That perspective is not fearful to me. It brings contentment – a rare fruit of the spirit not known to many humans yet.
From what he has shared of his experiences, I don’t think my friendly email follower is far from finally shedding the pain of his subtle and not so subtle human attachments of his Path … In my experience it was never his choice. We are caught, not taught.
All Is Well.
