Realising That Our Mind Is Sacred Space
There’s no getting way from it!
Upon hearing a word or phrase,|
a significant realisation can occur:
“Why didn’t I see that before?!”.
That’s karma for you.
We may assume that anything ‘sacred’ is only for special people or places. But how can that be, when the entirety of spiritual teachings is about ourtrue nature, right now? Our mind essence?
It is because we assume – thanks to religion – that we aren’t good enough. We distance ourselves from reality, worshipping from afar, and actually go back to sleep; “Please don’t wake me, I’m having that nice dream you gave me.”
You see, waking up means taking responsibility, testing everything to realise that the essence of mind is pure and sacred. We are that essence of mind, ergo we are holiness which is separate from our selfish, mundane identity.
To be holy refers to a state of being set apart from defilement. The Hebrew word translated as “holy” comes from a term meaning “separate.” Thus, what is holy is separated from common use, or held sacred, especially by virtue of its being pure.
