I have never experienced the sublime quiet of formlessness as being at odds with my longing for and praise of God. To my mind, we are vast enough beings to synthesize these seemingly opposite attributes into a robust and animated third truth. We do not require adherence to any particular dogma- even those that seem especially enlightened- to guide our way home to the Divine. Most of the mystics I adore have had a similar hybrid of devotional and non dual experiences and outlooks. Maybe you are this breed of seeker. Let us engage, and even invent, practices that feel aligned with our own spiritual sensibilities. Trusting our soul’s innate knowingness, flinging ourselves into the mystery. Practice in multiple spaces, with diverse communities and alone, allowing your edges to melt into the One. Then let your heart break one all over again when you remember the unbearable beauty of the Beloved’s invisible face.
something reveals itself when we experience our own knowing…..what is that something?
inquiry for today~ where do you sense the Divine in your day? what does that mean to you?
Under whatever name and form one may worship the Absolute Reality, it is only a means for realizing It without name and form. That alone is true realization, wherein one knows oneself in relation to that Reality, attains peace and realizes one’s identity with it.
