Last night I picked up Depak Chopra’s The Book of Secrets.
I had to laugh because the first paragraph reads: “The deepest hunger in life is a secret that is revealed only when a person is willing to unlock a hidden part of the self. In the ancient traditions of wisdom, this quest has been likened to diving for the most precious pearl in existence, a poetic way of saying that you have to swim far out beyond shallow waters, plunge deep into yourself, and search patiently until the pearl beyond price is found.”
I was thinking OH GREAT, I just stood UP in the shallow pool, now you are telling me to dive back in and swim?!? lololol
Here are a few other interesting quotes~
“The one reality is spirit, and the surface of life is only a disguse with a thousand masks that keeps us from discovering what is real. A thousand years ago, such a statement would have met with no arguement. Spirit was accepted everywhere as the true source of life. Today, we have to look with new eyes at the mystery of existence, for as proud children of science and reason we have made ourselves the orphans of wisdom.”
“It isn’t possible for the self to keep secrets from itself forever, no matter how thoroughly we’ve been trained to believe otherwise.”
The next chapter talks about a similar concept to peak experiencing.
See? When you are ready the teacher does indeed show up full force! We are never left to flounder as long as we are open to learning.
I was just talking with a friend of mine (my thoughts and prayers are with you M) about learning and growing in the world that is adoption. There are people within The Adoptive Plane who very clearly are not ready to experience (hear) certain things. They depart quickly from our world hopefully to return when the time is right for them. As frustrating as it can be I think we have to be gentle with them. Hopefully some day they will will be open to truth and when they are ready their teachers will show up.
