Wanting “enlightenment” or “wisdom”
from a “teacher” is not why we are here!
Many people simply want to "get
wisdom" from a spiritual teacher, famous person, guru, etc.. They
hope to “get enlightened”, “be in the now” (i.e. escape
everything, which is unpleasant), “be love” or even return to
But of course we are here for a different reason, and it is a reason
by all of us:
Conscious experience, sharing and growth!
years, when I was young,
I wanted to believe too, that it is simply
a matter of growing towards “love” – to become
“love” and be true to “love”. I did not realize then
that I was in truth still very wounded myself,
and this was really my “wishful thinking”, rather
than truly feeling love. It was a way for me to “survive”
and instead of embracing the feeling of the unpleasant in myself
truly working on healing and feeling love, completely and
deeply for every experience and person in my life.
Many people want to “learn” from
the teachers, etc. who in turn also have learnt from their teachers, or
who quote old scriptures from teachers who have lived on the earth
hundreds of years ago.
These teachers may come across as
being very wise, but in truth quote “wisdom”, which is not theirs
True wisdom can only come from our own experiences, not from reading
books, or from attending a talk. Sure, these can help us to become more
conscious, but then we are here to do our own healing, feeling, sharing,
growing and LIVING our own life – and ultimately our Sacred Life in
harmony with all people and Mother Earth.
give us “growth”, or wisdom.
We are not here to “know”, we are here to feel and grow.
And we can only feel based on our own experiences.
And that is what our journey over many lifetimes
on the earth is all about.
The truth is that we have not come to
simply “be love”
(for that we can stay in the realm of spirit!).
We have come to experience, heal,
share and consciously grow!
Again, “stillness of mind” (i.e. not feeling
anger, hurt, fear, uncomfortable feelings) is NOT the same as truly,
deeply feeling love for every person and experience in our life!
We can experience and feel many different levels of
“love” (or stillness of mind...).
How much can we truly feel, when we have not really healed our
many unpleasant experiences in our life?
Forgetting our unpleasant
burying them, “stilling” them, does NOT mean
we have healed them!
Healing means feeling love and compassion, completely,
deeply for the e.g. the father, who has “given” us these
unpleasant experiences. Only then will we be free
to live our Sacred Life.
How much “love” do we truly feel, if we do not
unconditionally, deeply love our own children, parents,
if we have no lover, no truly, deeply (heart, spirit, soul, body)
loving relationship, if we do not truly love our work,
and we do not truly live our Sacred Life in harmony
with all people and Mother Earth?
Sure, we can learn to still our
mind, through discipline and practices (such as study of scriptures,
chanting, meditation, fasting, etc. etc.), but that is simply absence of
anger, hurt, fear in our MIND!
That is not the deepest level of love we can feel, be and share on the
We can only feel love in our HEART!
To be able to deeply feel love and compassion, we must heal every
experience and relationship in our life.
"teachers" (or should I say "researchers"
of other people's wisdom and experiences)
such as Ekhart Tolle, the teachers of "the Secret",
and many others, actually sell us "solutions",
which take us away from growing towards healing,
love, compassion and our Sacred Life!
But of course even this is "perfect"
as we are also here to learn to discern
what is in harmony with our heart and
growing towards feeling and sharing of love,
compassion, true being and our Sacred Life.
As we embrace our own healing, we grow more and more towards love,
compassion, harmony, peace, freedom and our Sacred Life with all people
and Mother Earth.
Let us listen
to those teachers, who truly live
and FEEL love and compassion - who live their Sacred Life
in harmony with all people and Mother Earth.
Let us listen to teachers who not
simply research, learn and recite wisdom from others, and who may use
the words of “love”, “God”, but do not truly feel, live and
share love and their Sacred Life.
Let us choose teachers (religious leaders, etc.) who truly feel love for
every person and experience in their life (including their own father
and mother, children) and all the people in the world, and who
feel a deep love and reverence for all of
Teachers who themselves are devoted to feel, heal, live and share their
heart, love, compassion and Sacred Life with all people and Mother
Let us embrace
and honour our own journey,
where we have many opportunities to grow
towards a deeper level of feeling, being and
sharing love, compassion and our true self
– and our Sacred Life with all people
and Mother Earth
Are we ready?
