Jack Kerouac, Baha'u'llah, Osho, God, soul, mystery, you, and mysteriousness

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

 

                 

           

“Remember that in pure…mind essence there is no asking of the question why and not even any significance attached to it. …Why don’t you just relax and enjoy God?

God is you, you fool!”

Jack Kerouac

 

 

            We are the center of a vastness that has no limitation; we cannot get closer to the mystery of God than in ourselves. We must not look for the mystery outside of ourselves, for it is not outside; we must recognize ourselves as Mystery, emanating mysteriously, from our own mysteriousness.

            In Baha’u’llah’s prophetic words, “Know, verily, that the soul is a sign of God, a heavenly gem whose reality the most learned of men hath failed to grasp, and whose mystery no mind, however acute, can ever hope to unravel.”

            As such, Osho claimed: “God has already happened. You are carrying him from the very beginning... You may have forgotten, you may have become completely oblivious, you may not be able to remember who you are, but still you are God.”

Life is all one great event not understanding itself. And we are IT, not understanding Itself. We are the ‘I’ which does not know what ‘I’ is.

           Indeed it is an absolute tragedy that we spend our days hunting for spectacle and distraction, when the most marvelous, intimate miracle lies right inside of us, and is us; for when we see and seek outwardly with only our own limited perspective, God the Great Mystery shrinks into an ungreat unmystery within us.
