Wise ones have always walked the Earth with notion of Peace and Love that only few amongst us can even dreamed of living. While their wisdom has become their strength, it was first a path to walk as a challenge, then a way to understand as a learning and finally a road to realize as a Truth.
What is essential constitutes the trail on which the master steps and through which s/he builds her/his foundation. The unnecessary step offers a pale imitation of the Truth, an illusory and incomplete version of the heart of Life. This center represents the highest frequency with which Life can be experienced. This is the space where harmony and unity prevail through unconditional love.
Although there are as many ways to get to this space as there are experiences on this physical reality, here are 5 tips to journey into Life like a master. Although these tips barely offer glimpses into the ultimate path to enlightenment, they also provide leadership guidance to influence your choices, decisions and directions. This sharing will help you re-center your priorities and re-establish your grounds.
1 – Stand with Faith
Faith is a concept that religions share widely as the path to enlightenment. Often used as a substitute for “hope”, “belief” or “trust”, the master remembers it as “Knowingness”. Faith goes beyond the mind. Indeed, it is a sense of living Life by short-circuiting the mind and experience the moment with knowing the moment. “Khalil Gibran has, once, written: Faith is an oasis in the heart which can never be reached by the caravan of thinking. From the Great Soul to the Human soul, faith is the shortest way and the most reliable one. The master stands in the strong path; one made of subtle; one made of knowing, feeling, sensing.
2 – Walk with Love
The Love right next to which the master walks vibrates with unconditionality, limitlessness and unity. This Love is so altruistic and compassionate that the path on which the master journeys is made of essential connections between all forms of life. The master recognizes the sacred in all life forms and acts accordingly. S/He walks in kindness, compassion and devotion to Life sealing her/his steps with empathy and understanding.
3 – Grow with Patience
The path of the master is made of challenges. Each and every one of them is a walk through the darkness where all limitations are reconsidered and each sense of knowingness is systematically being objected and given a new perspective to be dissected. Openness of the mind and strength of the heart are the two pillars of a spiritual growth. Both of them requires one common ally to nurture their growth: patience.
4 – Speak with Silence
One of the most challenging and yet priceless learning that the wise has mastered is the ability to speak with silence. While, for many, silence is an empty space, for the master, it represents fullness, wholeness and all possibilities. When we give room for the unknown to exist in our physical presence , then its sense of presence has much to share. In its sharing, there is a lot to be found.
5 – Listen with Humility
With the mastery of silence comes the genius for listening. To travel into consciousness like a master is to remember oneself as a child, curious of everything and fearless about everything. The gift of eternal wonder is a blessing that the wise nurtures with tender care and cultivate with a sense of preciosity. Whenever the light tends to dim is when courage, bravery and soulful madness are required. These are experienced through a true sense of humility in the face of adversity. It is the recognition of a moment of ignorance that invites the mastery of knowingness to settle.
A true master can at the most only inspire you to live your being, live in your light. ~Swami Rajneesh
