Eom Ida Mingle, Neville, Alan Watts, Brahma, higher self, mystery, and God within

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas




“The goal of self-consciousness is to find oneself, this being the finding of God. It is as though God in his known capacity hid himself… allowing mankind to progress in an independent manner.”

Eom Ida Mingle



Similarly, the idiosyncratic thinker, Neville, states: “Deliberately, [God] has become man and has forgotten that He is God, in the hope that man, thus Created, will eventually rise as God. ¼[For] just as God in His love for man so completely identified Himself with man that He forgot that He was God, so man in his love for God must so completely identify himself with God that he lives the life of God.”

The mystery of God lies within us; we are the narrow gate, but we have forgotten that the password to the mystery is ‘I’.

Of this, Alan Watts wrote: “¼this is the dramatic image of Brahma playing hide-and-seek with himself through all the ages of time, concealing himself with infinite ingenuity in the endless variety of apparently separate forms and beings, throwing himself away to recover himself with ever renewed surprise, plunging into ever more fantastically lost situations so that the finding again is all the more astounding. ¼[This is the] Hindu concept of maya- the dramatic self-deception whereby the One plays at being the Many, and the Godhead lets itself be forgotten in pretending to be each individual being.”

Life is a ruleless game, played by a multifarious cast of individuals who are not individual, but are God not knowing it is play.

The anonymous writer of The Way Beyond explains: “We have called It the Higher Self, and it is in fact [the] very God in you. It is like a ray or reflection of God’s mind shining somewhere deep within your consciousness- a ‘light which shineth in the darkness, but the darkness (of the outer human mind) knoweth it not.’ For certainly when It can get your mind’s attention and you listen, It displays a wisdom that is near to that God as the human mind can conceive. And those who heed and obey are given a glimpse of something wonderful, which while inexpressible is altogether divine and most satisfying. ¼Everyone must come to that place- every seeker of the true way of life; for until self with its human mind has been completely humbled and gives up utterly, it cannot accept the truth of its non-reality and of the actuality of the God-man within¼” (brackets are author’s)
