The coming “Event” is all the rage in spiritual circles, blogs, etc. Everyone talks about The Event, the life changing wave that will flow across the earth and leave us forever changed. Some talk about a wave of energy, either as a result of spiritual intervention or as a result of where our solar system is in the galaxy. Others talk about a massive tidal wave of apocalyptic proportions that will wipe away civilization. Either way it’s a massive and virtually instant happening. Yet others talk of The Event as happening over a generation, maybe two. It’s more of an accelerated evolution. I expect the truth is somewhere in the middle of all the channelings and prophets. We all come to the subject with different backgrounds, perspectives and interpretations.
I will leave if or when The Event will actually happen as foretold to others. What I can talk about with conviction are 3 absolute truths that define all of us and make talk of The Event of little real importance. These same 3 truths are in virtually all major channeled, prophetic and religious bodies of work, both ancient and modern. These channeled truths are the common thread that ties us all together. They are the reason I am a yogi.
The mandala above is on the wall of our studio. It illustrates these 3 truths that are shared by all of us. We all start on the outside of the circle, seeking truth from various backgrounds, perspectives and interpretations. Many religious teachings would have us at each other’s throats. However, as we move through the process, the dogma we all bring to the search falls away and the truth of our existence is both simplified and clarified.
All religions and beliefs are represented on the outside circle of the mandala, including the “empty” circle at the top that represents any religions yet to be created or omitted. Everyone that is seeking the truth of who they are can find a leaf on the mandala that represents a starting place for them. The mandala does not judge or condemn anyone. All are welcome and we all start from the same distance to the center.
In time all seekers will come to the realization that these 3 truths are in fact absolute. 1.) we are all from Source, God, Creator energy. Call it what you may, the truth is the same. We are all from one source, we are all Holy Children of the same Divine Entity. Every spiritual sage, regardless of background, will say the same thing. All of the fighting, killing, stealing on earth is between brothers and sisters of the same Source. This truth is easy to accept once you leave behind the selfish tunnel vision of the monkey mind.
As the seeker moves closer to the center the realization that 2.) we are all without sin begins to crystalize. For me, this is the hardest of them all to understand. Everyone, no matter who you can think of, is included and without sin. Yeah, I know, it’s a tall order with some folks. It starts with unconditional Love. We are all of and from the same Source and are loved without condition. In this existence we cannot fully understand the consequences of any of our actions and cannot begin to judge our own actions as good or bad, much less the actions of others. Humans are experts at justifying any action and making that action “good” from our limited perspective. The clear intention of non judgement and unconditional Love is the key here. Volumes have been written about sin, which is a man-made creation and I will not convince anyone of this absolute truth in this short writing. Simply know that the concept exists and explore its meaning.
The third and final absolute truth for today is the realization that 3.) our Creator, God, Source is not complete without each one of us. This is the most wonderful and glorious realization of all! Not one of us is alone. Each and every one of us belong and we will all return to Source when we leave this plane of existence. Not one is left behind. Why? Source itself is within each one of us. A piece of the Divine Light is who and what we are.
Embrace your inheritance, claim that which you are. We recognize this absolute truth every time we close a practice with Namaste – the light in me recognizes that same light in each of you.
We are from the Divine, of the Divine and will return to the Divine.
Now we are doing yoga…
