After a period of about three years, almost everyone had dropped out; near the end, there were only 72 people left — one of which was yours truly. Eventually there were only three of us left. It was that tough. The disciplines imposed by our teacher were difficult because they required you to be extremely spontaneous.
Be there! If you were even one minute late for a meeting, you got tossed out forever. There were no ifs, buts, or maybes; we were cut no slack. I remember a session that was held in California, at Big Sur.
The meeting was called for six in the morning. A number of us flew from London, including two South African friends of mine. We got to the hotel the day before and checked in. My pals were up early next morning and decided to go for a little walk before the meeting started. They arrived back at the meeting room at three minutes past six. They were not allowed to enter — in spite of the fact that they had flown all the way from London.
That was the last I saw of them — on that particular path anyway. What I learned from those experiences was that spiritual growth and the getting of a higher awareness is not necessarily convenient. They want to reach a higher place from within the considerations of the ego and its limited consciousness — which often defines life into self-righteous, cozy little boxes, creating a self-indulgent energy that has the potential of a slug in a puddle. The ego likes little boxes it is familiar with.
But when considering an infinite consciousness, the first thing you have to do is burn the boxes. Lao-Tzu talks about it in the first few lines of the Tao Te Ching — when talking about the Infinite Self, the Christ consciousness, the God Force, the Tao, the Buddhahood, whatever you care to call it — is that it runs through all things, its everywhere, so it has no definitions.
Only the ego needs to define, discriminate, quantify, and measure things in order to create an edge or framework to life so it can feel secure and comfortable with what little it knows and comprehends. But the eternity of the grace of God flows through the life force of plants, trees, animals, humans, and all things.
You can define the position of a tree because there is a definite space around the tree where it is not. If the God Force is omnipresent, it must also be God, because God is everywhere.
The God Force and God must be one and the same. You can work it out. There is a law in physics that states that no two particles can occupy the same space. So the God Force and God are one and the same. The act of defining life limits your perception of it.
In the Tao, nothing is considered high or low, short or long. Tossing our definitions of high, low, good, and bad is the first step towards grasping the indefinable nature of the Infinite Self.
Of course, that is true in a strict physical sense, but in the realm of consciousness, your energy is bigger that mere concepts of my body, my life, my car. As you expand your heart and go past your resistance to letting go, you comprehend yourself as an omnipresent, eternal being — one that dwells in a multidimensional state, timeless and immortal.
Meaning, you existed before you came to the earth plane, you exist now in a physical form, and you will exist after you leave the earth place — after your body quits in the earth place. But if I ask what does infinity feel like, you will probably not have a precise feeling you can identify with. First you sell the ego-personality the idea as an intellectual principle. Then through discipline, mediation, opening yourself up, moving beyond fear — through coming to a more compassionate understanding of this planet — you finally comprehend the Infinite Self as feeling.
I feel I am everywhere and nowhere, I dwell in the realm of spirit. Looking at yourself can be uncomfortable. Even though something or someone can inspire you or teach you, in the end the only way you will sustain a higher energy is to create it for yourself.
In the laws of physics, a subatomic particle can borrow energy for a millisecond, moving to a faster orbit around a nucleus. So whatever energy is borrowed in this second has to be paid back a split second later, and the particle returns decays to where it is comfortable, at the energy level it had before. Spiritual growth follows the same rules. You can be inspired by a hymn, by a fanatic sermon, words out of a book; but you can only borrow that inspiration. In the end, raising your energy involves discipline, which means working upon yourself.
That is the only way you can sustain yourself indefinitely at a higher level. All rights reserved.
