Millions of people who otherwise would be completely lost in the conceptual reality of their mind are kept sane by living with an animal. – Eckhart Tolle
There are four levels of human development. These include: –
- The Physical.
- The Mental
- The Metaphysical.
- The Spiritual
The highest of these stages of development is the spiritual. It takes you into the mystery of existence. It takes you into the experience of the magical.
For most of human existence the focus has been on the physical. We achieved by means of hard labour.
Later came the development of the personal mind. This lead to an easier life by way of scientific discoveries. This was called the Age of Enlightenment.
Later still there was the advent of metaphysical thinking by way of the New Thought Movement.
This was still using the mind to serve the personal self. This is the fashionable practice referred to as The Law of Attraction or the Secret.
This is where you are advised that the Cosmos exists for you to place orders into. The spiritual teacher and mystic Caroline Myss calls this the “Where’s my stuff?” approach to prayer.
This is the equivalent of the wave dictating to the Ocean.
It is the personal “I am” dictating to the Universal “I AM.” It may work for a while, but it won’t give you the experience whereby you can declare: –
The Secret of Secrets is inside me again – Anna Akhmatova – Russian poet.
Now we have the invitation to the highest. This is the spiritual mind or mystical mind. This is the empty mind available to be thought through by the Universe.
The issue around learning how to have an empty mind is whether you are willing to allow this power to be given through you.
The universe won’t give you such power for your personal use. It is only given by way of service to the totality of the Universe.
If you intend to learn to have an empty mind for the purpose of personal gain, then be warned. Be clear that you intend to practice this invitation in service for the highest good of all.
Learning how to have an empty mind is the greatest skill. It is where your mind is still in order that the Universe may think through you. You give no thought.
Then the magic of being thought through happens. You are a flow of Divine Intention. No stress. Just a happening of delight from the Light within.
