The True Teacher Is One With Universal Will. One With the Universal Consciousness.And the Servant of All
There can be no real understandingif we listen only to those things that soothe us.That gratify or confirm our beliefs and our ideas.
It is an art to listen to everythingWithout prejudiceWithout building up our defences toProtect our ignoranceOur confirmed beliefsOur original knowledgeOur particular idiosyncrasies andOur points of viewAnd listen to findOut the truth of the matter.
It is only truthThat fundamentally frees us.Not conclusions or speculationsBut the perception of what is not true
What the mind is made up ofIs not TRUTH!
Truth is beyond the mind
TRUTHCan never be revealed to a MINDThat isNarrowBigotedConditioned with beliefsAndKnowledge that isBlinding and Binding(From the introduction to the Yoga of Christ)I was getting ready for my Sunday Morning Presentation to My clients and staffand asked for something I NEEDEDand the words above opened for me(Ps I started by singing to 200 people "You are my Sunshine" and the story we shared on Saturday)Almost everywhere we turn we are presented with"We need to search for KNOWLEDGE"and so we are conditioned to thirsting for this KNOWLEDGEso that when an opportunity opens for us to"ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE"We are tempted toJUMP RIGHT INAnd with a Bound and Blinded MINDwe soak up whatEXPERTS TELL USJust because they are "said to be experts".We have to remove the BLINKERS and the BONDSso that as we search for what we do not knowwe let go of what we do not need anymore.In preparing the PowerPoint Slides for Sunday I was again reminded in the most blinding of ways thatanything worth doing or having requiresEFFORTLots of EFFORTlike climbing the HimalayasWe get led to believe that things are EASY and in the initial stages of our quest weFEEL GOODuntil the FIRST OBSTACLE APPEARSandWE GIVE UP.And sometimes weGIVE UPWhen the Top of the Mountain is Just beyond the next ridge.I leave you with a Prayer I originally learnt from Robert SchullerWhen faced with a MountainI WILL NOT QUITI will keep on tryingUNTILI find a pass throughTunnel underneathorSimply stayandTurn my MountainInto a Gold MineWILL YOU??
CONSIDER THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!THE TRUTH IS JUST A LIE THATHAS NOT YET BEEN DISCOVERED

0. The Fool
A fool is one who goes on trusting; a fool is one who goes on trusting against all his experience. You deceive him, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you; and you deceive him again, and he trusts you. Then you will say that he is a fool, he does not learn. His trust is tremendous; his trust is so pure that nobody can corrupt it.
Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. Dont try to create a wall of knowledge around you. Whatsoever experience comes to you, let it happen, and then go on dropping it. Go on cleaning your mind continuously; go on dying to the past so you remain in the present, here now, as if just born, just a babe.
In the beginning it is going to be very difficult. The world will start taking advantage of you...let them. They are poor fellows. Even if you are cheated and deceived and robbed, let it happen, because that which is really yours cannot be robbed from you, that which is really yours nobody can steal from you.
And each time you dont allow situations to corrupt you, that opportunity will become an integration inside. Your soul will become more crystallized.
Commentary:Moment to moment, and with every step, the Fool leaves the past behind. He carries nothing more than his purity, innocence and trust, symbolized by the white rose in his hand. The pattern on his waistcoat contains the colours of all four elements of the tarot, indicating that he is in harmony with all that surrounds him. His intuition is functioning at its peak. At this moment the Fool has the support of the universe to make this jump into the unknown. Adventures await him in the river of life.
The card indicates that if you trust your intuition right now, your feeling of the 'rightness' of things, you cannot go wrong. Your actions may appear 'foolish' to others, or even to yourself, if you try to analyse them with the rational mind. But the 'zero' place occupied by the Fool is the numberless number where trust and innocence are the guides, not scepticism and past experience.Today's background The scene from my Hotel Room on Saturday Evening before Sunset
