I read something powerful about Albert Einstein today. We know he was not just a “scientist.” He was a mystic and very spiritual. Upon one of his most profound discoveries, he didn’t quote anyone else nor did he give it any kind of verification from another source. He had a revelation and he just announced it. That was the way it was because he knew it and had experienced it on a mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual level. He had a moment of clarity when everything said yes to the question he was asking. He couldn’t deny it anymore. He just knew.
Of course, I know we all have this same capability. One of the tenets of our faith says, “We believe in the Unity of all life and that the highest God and the innermost God is one. We believe that God is personal to all who feel this Indwelling Presence. We believe in the direct revelation of Truth through our intuitive and spiritual nature and that anyone may become a revealer of Truth who lives in close contact with the indwelling God.”
This is the reason that I am so adamant about the power and sacredness of each and every mind and heart that comes into my presence. I do not give suggestions or directions to anyone about their life. We all know or have the capability to know what is true and right for us.
Things are not true because this person said it or proved it or any of that. Things are true for us when we prove them for ourselves. The challenge from all mystics to “Know Thyself,” holds all the inner power we could ever need. If someone can help us that is all well and good, but in the end, it all comes back to us to prove those things we say we believe or would like to believe for ourselves.
Nothing is wrong or right if it hurts no one. There are many paths from the self to God. We get to choose. We get to prove it. We get to have our own experience and our own understanding of our life.
I look forward to the times when I have epiphanies about questions I ponder. I look forward to the changes those epiphanies continue to bring into my life. I know that nothing is static and I will always be changing and evolving. I do not seek out teachers and mentors; however, the right ones always show up at the right time. The more I can leave that idea open, the greater the revelations and experiences.
I am grateful for my inner compass and I hold it sacred as I do yours.
Love and Aloha,
