The absolutely most important thing in my life is Spirituality, connecting with God[s] or whoever is running the Universe (I have entertained the possibility that there maybe more than a God but perhaps several Gods. So, I am a Universalist like Aldous Huxley. Read this tale – this says it all.

When Svetaketu was 12 years old he was sent to a teacher, with whom he studied until he was 24. After learning all the Vedas (Hindu Scriptures), he returned home full of conceit, in the belief that he was consummately well educated and very censorious.
His father said to him,” Svetaketu, my child, you who are so full of your learning and so censorious, have you asked for that knowledge by which we hear the unhearable, by which we perceive what cannot be perceived and know what cannot be known?”
His father replied, “As by knowing one lump of clay all that is made of clay is known, the difference being only in name, but the truth being that all is clay-so my child, is that knowledge, knowing which we know all.”
“But surely these venerable teachers of mine are ignorant of this knowledge; for if they possessed it they would have imparted it to me. Do you, sir, therefore give me that knowledge.”
“So be it , ” said the father….And he said, Bring me a fruit of the nyagrodha tree.”
“Here is one, sir.”
“Break it.”
“It is broken, sir.”
“What do you see there?”
“Some seeds, sir, exceedingly small.”
“Break one of these.”
“It is broken, sir.”
“What do you see there?”
“Nothing at all.”
The father said,” My son, that subtle essence which you do not perceive there-in that very essence stands the being of the huge nyagrodha tree. In that which is the subtle essence all that exists has its self. That is the true, that is the Self, and thou,Svetaketu, art that.”

I’ve read and re-read this a dozen times and I am completely captivated by it. THIS is what God is!!! It’s a non-physical “thing”…SUBTLE ESSENCE is my mantra.

My liberal atheist friends dismiss all this but I think they’re foolish. There is something MUCH MUCH more powerful than us. I after all have been to the other side. Yes, I died and had an NDE (Near Death Experience) and there IS something. I connected with God and I also saw the evil one. I won’t elaborate here, another time perhaps. But, I swear to you – THIS IS 100% TRUE!!!

    Don’t run from pain, suffering and misery – EMBRACE it!!! Don’t worry about darkness – let it be – your awareness or “mindfulness” will turn the light on – in time. KEY word – time. Patience and stillness is everything.

  2. Michael Tabor Says:

    Your mind or soul is subtle, invisible and treacherous. When you try to hold on to peace and bliss you lose it. Don’t push away unpleasantness and don’t CLING to pleasantness. SECURITY is an illusion – EMBRACING insecurity and change is enlightenment.
