The Jewel and the rst Word
What then was the first teaching?
Of course we don’t know.
A great Teacher passes on his truth at the level that the people around him
understand. But at the same time it is multi layered. What at first might
seem simple has hidden depths.
One persons stone, another one’s jewel.
I’ve been to retreats and teachings. At the best of them we sit and listen and
learn. But that’s not the real teaching. No really, it’s not. The real teaching is
to be gradually drawn into the Teacher’s State of Awareness. The
experience, the actuality, is the real teaching. That is the transmission.
Of course there is a road of understanding. There are songs and displays.
There are dancing angels to seduce us. Caught up in mild euphoria, the
essence of actuality is passed on. Almost when we are not looking we are
given the Real thing. The State of being is given to us.
So this is the first teaching. The actuality of His presence.
It is the only real teaching.
He Himself is the first Word and the first Teaching.
