Forever Young by Jan Marvin
As an Irish storyteller, I love the mythology of Ireland.
In Ireland, we tell stories about the dimension of the Timeless. We have a story about the Land of Tír na nÓg. This is the Land of the Forever Young. This is the Land of the Beautiful People called The Tuatha de Danaan.
Most people reading or hearing such mythological stories, like the mythological stories in the Bible, take them literally or to be stories that are myth—meaning that they are not real.
The language of myth is the language of the soul – Joseph Campbell
Therefore, most people never grasp the enormity of the wisdom teachings in such scriptures as the Bible. The Bible is a guide to the Mind. The stories as taught by those who are not Sages are taught literally rather than mythologically and symbolically.
This is in larger part why the experience that is beyond belief is missed.
We interpret them at the level of the personality because the teachers have never experienced that dimension beyond the personal.
Such wisdom stories are interpreted by the dualistic overthinking mind. Thus you have theology rather than revelation. You have logic-chopping (Osho) but you have no insight and no KNOWING.
You are invited to read about eternal life as a promise and that is all it ever is.
The reason it remains a promised of a possibility following the death of the form of the body is because the people teaching this wisdom have never lived outside time. They teach what they do not know.
KNOWING is the invitation from living from the open heart. It is far more challenging that trying to recover from a relationship breakup. The challenge is as the modern mystic Eckhart Tolle writing in The Power of NOW is to
Die before you die so that you KNOW there is no death – Eckhart Tolle – The Power of NOW.
This is not the invitation you will find in any of the top 10 Google searches on healing the heart chakra. Its all about healing your sense of personal self.
This is important and not to be ignored but this is the task of the lower three chakras and not the task of forth chakra or heart chakra.
