Neale Donald Walsch, Helena Blavatsky, Zen Master Lingi, God, emptiness, and liberation

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




“I have no doctrine to give people,

I just cure ailments and unlock fetters.”

Zen Master Lingi



These ‘fetters’ that bind us are of our own making. In order to free ourselves, we need only stop making them; which is to say, we must not continue to grasp for any truth whatsoever, or we shall lose the lightness and freedom of the innocent, unknowing mind.

Therefore, God, speaking in Neale Donald Walsch’s book, Friendship With God, exclaims: “That’s been the problem, right there! You’ve always thought. Try not thinking once in a while. Try simply being. It is when you just ‘be’¼that the greatest insight comes. ¼You cannot find the answer- any answer- rapidly by thinking about it. You have to get out of your thoughts, leave your thoughts behind, and move into pure beingness. ¼[For] awareness is a state of being. Therefore, if you are perplexed or puzzled about something in life, you must not mind. And when you have a problem, pay it no mind. ¼Get out of your mind! Remember, you are a human being, not a human minding. ¼ [So] you cannot be totally awake while you are thinking. Thinking is another form of being in a dream state. Because what you are thinking about is the illusion. ¼So every once in a while, it might be good to stop thinking all together. ¼Try to avoid labels. ¼Just be with the experience. ¼Don’t look expecting to see something. ¼Do not strive to see anything. Relax, and be content with the peace of the emptiness. Empty is good. Creation cannot come except into the void. Enjoy, then, the emptiness. Expect nothing more, want nothing more. ¼Let go. Let it be.”

            Realizing our free and infinite beings is absolutely easy. Effortless even.

            As such, in more emphatic verbiage, Helena Blavatsky admonished: “Believe thou not that sitting in dark forests, in proud seclusion and apart from men; believe thou not that life on roots and plants, that thirst assuaged with snow from the great Range- believe thou not, O devotee, that this will lead thee to the goal of the final liberation.”

           For it is only in surrendered acceptance to the incorrigible enigma that everything becomes wonderful, not in the striving to find an explanation for that enigmaticism.
