The mysteries of the Creator are boundless and unfathomable to the human mind. There are many things as spiritual seekers we strive to understand but the understanding evades us. We pray, meditate, study and yet the untold mysteries are as numerous as there are stars in the sky.
When you pray, you open a divine channel between you and your Creator. It doesn't matter what name you call upon for they are all the name of the One True God. It is our individual teachings, understanding and upbringing that give us the instruction of how to talk to God. In reality, there is One Great Spirit, One Creator of all things. As humans, with egos we like to think our understanding is the truth or right way. We judge other beliefs, traditions and ways through cloudy filters. How can you say, “I've seen it all, I understand everything”? How many aeons have you walked this planet and have conscious recall of? Do you remember the numerous lifetimes and the roles you've played?
Be cautious in your judgments, better to judge not. You have a limited understanding of the mysterious working within the Universe. Your vision carries you only so far. Most only see and understand what their human eyes allow them to see.
There is a story of Native Hawaiians and Native Americans unable able to see the ships from Europe as they approached. They were unable to see or recognize them because the ships were something incomprehensible in their current world view. Those with 'vision' or 'eyes to see' could see them and knew the impending danger. Those without vision could not see the ships. Does that mean the ships didn't exist? Of course you know the ships existed, as history has been played out and recounted.
When your mind can't comprehend something, you are unable to make sense of the data and at times, choose to “not see” what is right in front of you. Jesus said “those with eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand” will know the truth. He wasn't referring to your physical eyes, ears or heart. He was referring to your sixth sense or non-physical eyes, ears and heart. It is within your sixth sense that your connection to God/Spirit resides.
The only way to access your sixth sense is to get out of your analytical mind and into your intuition or spiritual heart. Within the imagination, your intuition is open. It is the channel that allows for non-verbal, non-physical communication with God. The quickest way to close the door and cut off communication with your Creator is to analyze, rationalize and judge from a place of Ego mind.
The Ego verbalizes data or memorized information that is held and stored within the mind. Data that has been organized like a computer operating system, to make sense of the physical world. Does that mean the Ego speaks truth? No, it speaks only to what it knows and has been taught.
Your true self, when connected to Spirit is able to comprehend far more than the physical world. Knowing this, you have power to connect, communicate and receive from the Divine. Put aside your limited understanding, your ego and allow yourself to receive truth into your heart. Allow your heart to be your guide, your teacher and your healer. Know that you can't comprehend truth from the analytical mind, only through your heart will you “know” and understand the great mysteries of God. Some things can only be known through experience. Words can only express a shadow of the truth that lies beyond the veil of human understanding.
