The Jewel and the rst Word
Human beings generally are lost.
The common pathways of Christianity and religion are incomplete. There is very
little substantial wisdom left in the teachings we are given. It really is a case of the
blind leading the blind.
The principle that is in these books runs like this:
In Prayer and Real Meditation we can discover our fundamental and natural
Awareness. We do some practice and find the common ‘consciousness’ that exists
in peace and the movement of thought. Equal in both states. When we find this
arising sense of intrinsic ‘Awareness’ which is non dual in nature, we work to
make it more present and continuing. To the extent that it is dependable and
secure. We are certain that it is what it is.
When we have established a true sense of certainty it is like a platform from
which we can jump off into understanding and communion with the outer edge of
that which is Great. If this base is not established nothing can or will happen. It is
a non starter.
This base, for want of a better word is called here ‘a platform’ It is a solid
standing place from which we can jump off and return.
At this stage the vision is more like this. That God, the Greatness, is an
immeasurable presence of all encompassing Intelligence in the form of
undiminished and all powerful Light. That which sustains us and all of existence.
We exist here and now only in the mind of the Great God who permits us to be.
