Contrary to popular beliefs, we are not our mind, our body, and our egos.
Also, we are not the circumstances of our lives, nor a creation of the world of matter.
Who we are is so fabulous that it is kept secret; it’s a secret that societies shun; it’s a secret that we shun; it’s a secret that the enlightened teachers throughout history have tried to disclose, only to be murdered or have their words misquoted and their ideas misconstrued.
The secret is that we are miraculous beings with magical powers.
Behind the masks of ego, mind, and body, rests our soul, our primal consciousness. This consciousness is not separate from pure consciousness, but rather an expression of it, the way a drop of water is an expression of the great ocean.
When we have a problem, a pressing, critical, urgent, life-threatening problem, how do we try and solve it?
We think and feel intensely, we take action, and we rush to others whom we perceive as more powerful than ourselves to solve it.
Usually, the problem persists, is aggravated, or is poorly solved.
Yet despite this almost complete failure of results, we continue to use this strategy. The result is the chaotic world that you see around you. Everyone is trying to force solutions. Oppression, grief, and travail are part of the history of this world.
The secret has been out in the open for centuries. Massive religious institutions have been built around it. Yet no-one sees the secret for what it is–an answer to all our problems.
Huge tracts are written about the secret. The result is that the secret is now obscured by a thousand rationales and commentaries, distortions and dangerous lies.
If the secret is that we are miraculous beings with magical powers, how do we open the gates to unleash this power?
We contact the secret through stillness. “Be still and know that I am God.” is how the Bible puts it.
In stillness and in silence, call it meditation or contemplation, our urgent emotions evaporate, our mind becomes quiet, and our insistent egos give up trying to find an answer. At this point, when the mind is silent, the body is still, and the ego is resigned, then, and only then, do we unleash the force of our Beingness to solve each and every problem.
