Wisdom teachers get so layered with perceptions
that it’s hard to redeem the wisdom they wanted us to have.
Twenty five years ago I was gifted with the answer to a life long question.
How are we all one?
The answer came in a vision (narrated by Ramana Maharshi)
“I found myself standing in a wealthy Arab man’s closet,
as he choose a pink shirt to wear.”
In this experience I was shown that choice doesn’t define us.
We are beyond what we choose,
and oddly, united
by the fact that while we are here
we must choose ( hundreds of choices in a day.)
This week is the ascension.
Jesus made four appearances during the 40 days after Easter.
Each visit was an assist to one or more of his students
Who needed a little bit love to get over their fear.
And when he left there was a circular vortex of love
that swept us off our feet, warm bodies all.
We may resist love but that doesn’t mean that it’s not there.
As Ramana said “Where would I go, I am here”
It’s enough to make you curious, isn’t it?
