There are a continuum of avatars who have been sent by the Almighty
to enlighten and uplift the world. These sage beings have interfused
their most human self with the Divine source. In every generation,
like a perennial plant, they emerge, when conditions for their reception
cry out. Every person is an aspect of one Godself — the avatars
are simply the purest example. Jesus, Buddha, Padmasambhava, Yeshe
Tsogyal,Ibn Arabi, Rumi, Plato, Plotinus, St. Teresa, Hildegard
von Bingen, Emerson, Ramana Maharshi, Adi Da, Ken Wilber.
These and many other wisdom masters have shown humanity the
way toward the Godself inherent in all beings. By their teachings and
example and radiant presence, humanity evolves spiritually. Like a
fire by which we can warm and guide ourselves, the Godself attracts
and calls to our own soul, showing the path to realization.
So study the mystic texts and truths from all traditions. Familiarize
your smaller self with your Godself beyond all limitations. The
same light and love flows through the wisdom of each tradition.
Religion is a means to link God and Self. The teachings are tools for
transformation and keys to enter the timeless. We use the practices
of the traditions such as meditation and prayer to rise beyond the
tradition toward the One Godself. When judging whether a teaching
is adequate to the task of enlightenment, look to the teachers, the
exemplars. To what degree are they realized? To what degree are
they living and speaking and expressing as Godself? When you
have found the mystic fire, stand close. Your obstructions to Godself
will begin to melt away and burn off as cinders. You will see the
ashes of fear and self-hatred, delusion, and misguided desire as the
fire consumes your body with Love Bliss and Infinite Awareness.
Body Mind is the fuel of the Mystic Fire. Shine with the light of
Compassion, Laughter, Generosity, Faith, Creativity, and Wisdom.
Your life is a medium for the Godself.
