Civilized & Uncivilized.

If we look in a good dictionary at the definition of ‘civilize’ we find that very few who claim to be civilized are, in fact, civilized! In fact, after critical scrutiny, we find that it is the so-called uncivilized who are the truly civilized ones - the so-called civilized ones being simply technologically advanced.

“Be still, and know that I am God.”

This statement from the Bible is a profound one; view it according to your concept of ‘God’.

In dreams, when the dreamer is in a house, the house often symbolizes the dreamer’s body or persona. Likewise, let “Be still” be a room in your house and go there often.

Enlightenment. (5)

Enlightenment is illumination from the inner source rather than from an external source seeping inwards.

For the Greater Good.

To desist from making a statement or pronouncement of fact due to a reluctance to hurt the sensibilities of someone could be doing a disservice to many.

Mind – Negative, Positive or not at all?

Background: Recently, after putting aside reserves for emergencies, I donated the equivalent of about three weeks of my pension to a family in need. I use the criterion, “Who needs this more than I do?”

The Human Body & Electrical Fields.

All objects in the universe have an electromagnetic field – a blueprint - which controls their characteristics and if we deconstruct the body to a certain point we find this electromagnetic blueprint.

The body, as is every living thing, is a complex mass of highly organized energy delicately balanced to function specifically and…

The Oyster and the Moul.

As over many years the oyster casts its shell so, over many lives, the Spirit casts its Moul.

Science and the Illusion.

Not many years ago scientists started observing that the results of an experiment were affected by the observer; they found that the same experiment conducted by different people produced slightly different results. To the non-scientist mystic this is to be expected because of their awareness of the reality that the subject of the experiment is an illusion [as is…

You.

Beneath the dust of time you lie,

Not on Earth or in blue sky

But in the timelessness of IT

No Thing Matters.

No thing matters. What matters is what one does with any thing and what any thing does to one.

Love. (1)

Love is the means to the end not the end in itself.

Love, true love, is part of the duality of which selfishness, the “I”, is the other part.

Thus, love, when cultivated as the antidote to selfishness, aids in one’s passage to full enlightenment without being full enlightenment or part of…

Spiritual Growth.

What is important for spiritual growth is “process” not “substance”. The first is necessary and the second is interesting.

Full enlightenment can be attained by process without substance.

Process = Living: attitude and action.

Substance =…

Why? & How? – the Important Questions.

When you are really interested in delving into the truth of something ask yourself either “Why?” or “How?” and having got the answer continue to ask yourself one of these questions until you can answer no more. At this point you will have reached the limit of your ability and may have the answer, or reached your inherent capacity and do have the answer. In this…

The Moul and Attachment/Non-attachment.

The Moul is like a patchwork fabric of attachments. When it loses someone or some thing to which it has a close attachment a patch is torn out with the rent leaving both a tear and a space: both the tear and the empty space are painful although the pain and feeling of loss diminish over time as the space covers over.

Separation of Spirit and the Moul [or Observation of Self].

When one is able to separate Spirit from the Moul one can do these things:

Observe the menting of the moul and if necessary check the moul before the menting becomes action.

Observe the menting of the moul but be unable to check the moul before the menting becomes action.…
