A young seeker, keen to become the student of a certain master, is invited to an interview at the master’s house. The student rambles on about all his spiritual experience, his past teachers, his insights and skills, and his pet philosophies. The master listens silently and begins to pour a cup of tea. He pours and pours, and when the cup is overflowing he keeps right on pouring. Eventually the student notices what’s going on and interrupts his monologue to say, “Stop pouring! The cup is full.” The teacher says, “Yes, and so ae you. How can I possibly teach you?”
There must be an inner state of openness and from here it is possible to receive anything. Do you have the time or the space within, to consider the following ancient teachings that was a part of the ancient teachings from the Mystery Schools and restated in the Gospel of Thomas?
“When you are able
To make two become one,
The inside like the outside,
And the outside like the inside,
The higher like the lower,
So that a man is no longer male,
And a woman, female,
But male and female
Become a single whole;
When you ae able to fashion
An eye to replace an eye,
And form a hand in place of a hand,
Or a foot for a foot,
Making one image supersede another
-then you will enter in.”
We do not dissolve our lower nature, it is not warfare, we integrate the energy of the animal nature to a higher state of awareness that has always been with us because it is us.
Be in beauty, walk in beauty, share in beauty and love in beauty.
With love, in love and through love.
