We all see or intuit Truth in differing ways and degrees.
(a) Circle the 3 or 4 elements in the teachings below where you
want to improve your spiritual vision.
(b) Put a rating of your own “spiritual seeing” on this scale:
Blind Blurry 20-20
(c) If necessary, look within yourself and ask for help.
“Use your eye of wisdom (intuitive faculty) to distinguish between matter and spirit, body and soul…
___ 1) Remember that whatever comes into existence, thing or being, is a result of the union between matter and Spirit.
___ 2) When the matter part of this union falls in death, the spirit remains standing.
___ 3) When you do not see the Spirit within you, you think that it is your self that dies.
___ 4) Only when you see the undying within the dying, do you really see the Truth.
___ 5) True seers, because they perceive Divinity in everyone, do no harm to anyone.
___ 6) Those who do not perceive this unity separate themselves from others, seeing some as friends, others as foes. These are the ones who do harm.
___ 7) This illusion of separateness causes all evils perpetrated by humanity! (How can anyone who knows Atma injure the same Atma in others?)
___ 8) Know that the body belongs to nature and the Atma belongs to Spirit.
___ 9) All action (karma) therefore, is done by the body, not by the Spirit living in the body.
___10) True Atma is actionless, it is never the doer.
___11) When you truly see that all beings emanate from the Godhead and are united in the Godhead, you become the Godhead—and you thereby attain liberation.
___12) The True Self Within (Atma) has no beginning or end; It is beyond the world of nature.
___13) Although It exists in the worldly body, the Atma (the True Self Within) does not act, and is therefore untouched by karma, good or bad.
___14) This mysterious Atma is subtler than the subtlest. Water in its steam state (its subtlest) is never soiled; similarly, Atma can never be tainted even though it dwells in every being.
___15) As the single sun illuminates the whole world, the single Knower of the Field lights up the entire field (all the world).
___16) All beings – great and small, saint and sinner, high and low – get their light (their consciousness) from this single source.
___17) Do not get entangled in the world, but use the world to reach Divinity.
___18) Cut yourself free from the field (from the worldly) and reach Me, the Supreme Goal.
Ultimately realize this tremendously important lesson: all creatures, although appearing separate, are truly only One.” – Krishna
