the space between the cells
The Love, and Power of the Spiritual Home is in the space between the cells from which the cells were created. It is within the silence. It cannot be known except through separation from it .. yet when it is experienced it is remembered.

The fire burns, yet cannot burn it self.
The eye sees, but cannot see itself - except through its reflection.

Power and Existence

Wisdom is respect of ourselves. In existence there is nobody who is superior and nobody who is inferior. The blade of grass and the great star are absolutely equal.

The "Spiritual" Journey Home

That Love, that Power is in the space between the cells from which the cells were created. It is within the silence. It cannot be known except through separation from it .. yet when it is experienced it is remembered.

Man wants to be higher than others, he wants to conquer nature, hence he has to fight continuously. All complexity arises out of this fight.

The innocent person is one who has renounced fighting; who is no longer interested in being higher, who is no longer interested in performing, in proving that he is someone special; who has become like a rose flower or like a dewdrop on the lotus leaf; who has become part of this infinity; who has melted, merged and become one with the ocean and is just a wave; who has no idea of the "I".

The disappearance of the ''I" is innocence.

If you are unkind to self, you will be unkind to others.

If you are negligent of self, you will neglect others. Only by experiencing compassion for your self can you experience compassion for others.

If we cannot love our selves, we cannot love others and we cannot stand to see others loved (this is the definition and cause of jealousy).

If we cannot treat our own self kindly, we resent that treatment when we see it in anyone else.

If you cannot love your self, loving others becomes a very painful unsatisfying endeavour with only occasional moments of comfort.

You cannot 'give' anything to anyone, because in reality, you have nothing to give - you can only share with others what you are.

The Tree

True power, unconditionality, innocence can only be built on a firm foundation.

A tree is only as strong as it is rooted in the ground. The environment buffets a tree, yet the tree will stand and survive only so long as its roots remain firm. A tree is also perfectly content in its state of treeness. If its a bush, it doesn't look with jealousy at the cedar saying 'I wish I was like you'. A tree dares to be the true expression of what it truly is. A tree, even after it is cut down, will grow  again from the seeds it sows.

Trees have been around longer than humanity, and we cut them down. There is more wisdom in a tree before it is cut down, turned into paper and covered with the written word.

Unconditionality and Innocence.

True power comes from the acceptance of our own specieshood with all of its
variations. We are all equal, none greater, none lesser, except in our own minds.

It is our memories, our judgements of ourselves which separates us from our
specieshood, our source, our integrity, our power. The 'God' we worship is the
projection we have placed outside ourselves of the Essence of our specieshood .. yet it is also the Essence of the tree, the flower, the rock ..

True power comes from the rekindling of firstly, our awareness of that, followed by
our acceptance of that Essence in faith .. until our bodies remember that, under the bindings of what we have been taught, we remember.

Remembering

True power comes from knowing we are the Love we seek, we are the Beloved, and we are the Act of Loving. We remember what we are looking for, we already are .. yet have forgotten.

Wisdom is respect of ourselves and it is our acceptance of that. Respect of
another is the acceptance of that same essence within the other.

That Love, that Power is in the space between the cells from which the cells were
created. It is within the silence. It cannot be known except through separation from
it .. yet when it is experienced it is remembered.

The fire burns, yet cannot burn it self. The eye sees, but cannot see itself - except through its reflection.

Life and Worship

Life, as I perceive it is the reflection of the perception of my selves. Each perceiver is a mask which filters the life experience through its own belief patterns. All of my selves have a common self which I cannot see, because I AM that self.

Worship (or Bhakti)  is the 'honouring of that Essence above all other',  the unconditional acceptance of the existence of our essence, our LifeForce above all others. Worship can only be a silent communion within the essence of the self.

"Thou shall have no other God before me" .. (there were only 2 commandments ... the other 8 came from the fact that the people could not understand the first 2).

Only when you become the mountain (much easier than climbing it) will you see the view, the burning bush .. and the 'personality I' may then hear the 'Voice of God' from the silence in the space between the cells ..


From this space does true healing, true wholeness emerge.

This is power ..I am, you are .. The Dream, The Dreamer, The Act of Dreaming .
The purpose of Life is to remember That (essence)

Re - member ... reconnect the fragments (or members).
