Enlightenment Now


He Had No Fixed Identity, My Lord!

[Oshana] Too busy in 3D to write in Cyberspace so I'll paste up these words culled by Judy on Freedom - a poem about not getting fixed in identity.

[Judy] "What kind of a person does Enlightenment produce?"

Said the Master:

"To be public-spirited and belong to no party,
to move without being bound to any given course,
to take things as they come,
have no remorse for the past,
no anxiety for the future,
to move when pushed,
to come when dragged,
to be like a mighty gale,
like a feather in the wind,
like weeds floating on a river,
like a mill stone meekly grinding,
to love all creation equally
as heaven and earth are equal to all
-such is the product of Enlightenment."

On hearing these words, one of the younger disciples cried, "This sort of teaching is not for the living but for the dead," and walked away, never to return.

A lot of thinking and verbalizing going on here. I used to belong to Mensa and I was impressed with mind, but none of that is important anymore. Now, I just am.....

Hugs, Judy

Anthony de Mello, SJ

MORSEL: All Spiritual being is in man. A wise old proverb says, "God comes to see us without bell," that is, as there is no screen or ceiling between our heads and the infinite heavens, so is there no bar or wall in the soul where man, the effect, ceases, and God, the cause, begins.

--Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essays "The Over-Soul"
