Hello, and Shanti everyone. I am confused here. When we do
meditation we are not doing contemplation of the world and part of
the world is the body. I understand that we are not the body,How do you know that?
therefore, one goes deeper into the energy or the force that comes
as we would know it here in America as `One in the Spirit'.
When our elders or Guru or teachers do things, it is said that those
with open eyes see other then the outer layer or there actions.
Take for example Tantra yoga or the teachings of the Comma sutra.
If one was to look at these teachings from the physical eyes it is
all sex orientated. But the truth is they are teaching of the
energy or the force within and with this thought sex now is nothing
more then a tool, like a carpenter uses a hammer as a tool, but does
not become the goal or the point of the carpentry itself. When it
comes to our teacher's of the old or even new, my teacher told,
see the fruit of the action not the action. Example my teacher once
went into a bar and many that saw him go into the bar started much
reason why he went into the bar. The bottom of this is why should a
Guru would go into a bar, a place not made for a Guru? Being that I
was one of the people who was there when he went into the bar, I
found out the truth later, that, he went into the bar to ask for a
drink of water, and that was all Just like a teacher of the
who was ask why do you hang around low life's and people who
trouble makers and sick? Jesus our brother said `I did not
to help those who are not in needs but those who are in need. I
guess what I am saying here is How do we see our brothers and
sisters? Do we see the outer layer or the inner layer of the force
within?See yourself.Others are merely your creations.The force does not pick or dislike but love only and being
that the force is within us, the force loves us. After all it is
part of us. So the first step to initiation is loving our self then
we can love the world as one energy, that of peace love and
tranquility.Forget about love.You have no idea what is love.You can never have an idea of love.You cannot do love, peace, tranquility.These are all consequences.With this in mind can we really look at the making of
the person or the heart of the person?Does that other person at all exist?What must apriori exist for the other to exist?Please help me understand my
meditation through truth, I am willing to learn.Who is it,... who has the problem?Who is it,.... that is willing to learn?
