15844Re: Can the truth set you free?
- Jan 8, 2008V:
A potential destiny perhaps, but not a certain one. The time-table
of the Great Feminine could very well cancel out the universe before
such a birthing of human beingness occurred, in which case humankind
would cease to exist.
From my observations, all meditation eventually leads to Heart-Mind,
and from Heart-Mind is uncovered the compassion of the Bodhisattva to
be dedicated to the liberation from suffering, and the cause of
suffering, for all sentient beings. If such a destiny of truth was
certain, there would be no Bodhisattvas. In other words, one could
say that no Bodhisattva is a guru, if a guru is defined as one who
has an enthusiasm for an eventuality that is is uncertain. Of
course, an authentic Bodhisattva is not the least bit interested in
enlightenment. Their interest is in bringing more light and love
into this reality, not enlightenment.
One way of bringing more light and love in, is to identify the false
as the false.
Eckhart Tolle said in 'The Power of Now', page 4, "we need to draw
our attention to what is false in us, for unless we learn to
recognize the false as the false, there can be no lasting
transformation, and you will always be drawn back into illusion, for
that is how the false perpetuates itself" Many guru's actually
perpetuate the false.
