Once, I stood for the first time before a man, to whom some people called Master. I had heard many impressive stories about him. I expected a big experience from being near him.
I got it- as the stunning reverse of what I had imagined.
I experienced a truly humble person for the first time, ever. There was no pretense in him of being bigger than or less than any thing or anyone.
I experienced him impeccably as the God Created Self happening- simple, kind, unrestrained, unconditional Love pouring forth. The times I have been in the presence of that purity have changed me at my core.
Those moments have given me the vision and clear intention of awakening to that same Love inside of myself.
Now, as I glimpse moments of that Love, I notice that it is the pretenses, the stories that I am less than or more than someone or something, that keep me from that Divine flow of Love.
When I let Divine Love in, I let go of all comparisons and ‘surrender’ to the perfection that is NOW.
It is my ideas and feelings of being bigger than or smaller than, that keep me from lovingly, and peacefully being the me God is creating.
For me, it has become both that simple and that difficult.
