We are not only living in God, in the Absolute, filling us with it from within and enveloping us and the world from without, but we are continuously exposed to the true liberating knowledge which lays hidden in plain sight, like the sun is always visible in the sky yet we fail to understand its true meaning, nature and existence.
Once we take the hard path to cleaning our being of the unnecessary, Grace makes its appearance and removes certain veils or obstacles just enough to make the journey a bit less than impossible. By cultivating our inner purity, selflessness, patience and humbleness the Knowledge reveals to ourselves and we remain in awe how simple and close to us all was the real information for the whole time. Things that in the past seemed to be gibberish or too abstract for us to even “waste our time” with, are shining bright into our minds and hearts and the true Existence is slowly revealing itself to us.
I am very grateful for all the great people that I have met and for all the amazing scriptures that I got my hands on, it was all made possible by the Grace of the Absolute. There is no mistake anymore. All the “mistakes” and “errors” are but part of the “Plan”, part of the great Revelation of the Almighty. It is so awesome that I have tears in my eyes while writing this and I hope that many of you will reach this point of recognizing the Grace of God in our lives. Many people felt it, wrote poems, prose, and sang their joy, the joy of remembering, the joy of knowing. Through the ocean of writings that exist in this world, there are many gems written by the very Spirit that permeates us all. They are but impossible to find for the unripe soul, even if the scriptures would be in his/her library, they would fail to release their Light (True knowledge) until the time is right and that person proved its worthiness. It is like a story I read about a seeker that found the most valuable and priceless gem in the world and because he didn’t believe himself to be finding that easy such a priceless object although he was looking for it, he threw away his finding and he continued searching for something that he already had in his hands. Eventually he found some bracelet made of shells and colored glass and he was happy to have found that, assuming that that must have been the Gem of gems that he was looking for, yet it was just a trinket.
I will explain this parable, because it is similar to the spiritual seekers, who by Grace may have touched the true Knowledge and / or got to meet the true preceptor but because their mind wants complication, methods and concepts, and because they fail to understand that the true preceptor will not come or look as in their projections and expectations, so they have thrown away their own priceless Diamond and exchange it for many colored pieces of glass and shell shards – fake gurus that have shining attire and mesmerizing talks and shows.
The true seeker, once he finds that gem, puts it inside their heart and mind and hold to that, knowing that it’s by merit and Grace that they were allowed to find that Gem and they will hold it for the rest of their existence very dear to them, knowing that that luminous Gem is their chance to transform into a Gem themselves.
This true Gem, the Chintamani Gem, is getting into one’s life to empower that being (the seeker) into becoming a true effulgence of the Divine Light themselves. The fake ones want the entire shine for their own, disempowering the prey just like spiders catch their prey in their snares and keep them alive to suck their vital energy. Their words may say otherwise yet their actions speak for themselves.
