RUMI MEETS JOSEPH CAMPBELL WHILE PLAYING CHESS AND DREAMING OF THE BLUE PEARL OF CONSCIOUSNESS! AND BHAKTI SMILED.
The long and short of it is that I have once again been reminded that everything is in perfect order, and that no matter what happens in the ‘outside’ world, there is space within me in which nothing exists but LOVE: transcendence of all dualities, as Joseph Campbell would say.
I speak of this place often: the Heart Center. I have learned that I must live there if I am to remain sane. Why flit back and forth between turmoil and peace, transcendence and duality when you don’t have to? I say that if I continue to let myself slip back into the physical realm of opposites that I shall merely slay the same dragons repeatedly: to what end? Insanity. There could be no other end. Would you choose to live in a life that bounces back and forth between Heaven and Hell if you knew that the key to Heaven was within your reach? You merely committ yourself whole heartedly and say-- “That’s it! I’m sick of these dragons!”
Until next time, may you rest in the innate state of transcendence that is closer than a heartbeat away.
