Ramtha, Rabidrinath Tagore, Ernest Becker, Clarice Lispector, the unknown self, and God

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

 

                 

           

“The truth is always some inner power without explanation. The more genuine part of my life is unrecognizable, extremely intimate and impossible to define. …I am so mysterious that I do not understand myself.”

Clarice Lispector

 

 

            It is in the relinquishing of personal attributes, definitions, and expectations that the event which we are is laid bare before us.

Ernest Becker stated: “Out of the ruins of the broken cultural self there remains the mystery of the private invisible, inner self which yearned for ultimate significance... The invisible mystery at the heart of every creature now attains cosmic significance by affirming its connection with the invisible mystery at the heart of creation.”

That is, when we recognize our own mysteriousness, we become one with the mysterious universe. And along these lines, Rabidrinath Tagore offered: “The traveler has to knock at every alien door to come to his own, and one has to wander through all the outer worlds to reach the innermost shrine at the end...[and then] melt into tears of a thousand streams and deluge the world with the flood of the assurance ‘I am!’”

Thus Ramtha was able to find God and himself as the very same self. He offers: “...that which I was going to, which was my home, was the great, elusive Unknown God, the grand mystery that caused all things to occur. ...[But] who was the Unknown God? It was me... My path in my life was to become the Unknown God- which, I was to discover, was myself- and to go beyond the dimensions to frolic in the adventures of forever.  ...[Know that] you are God. You always have been, you always will be...[and] this grand understanding...you allowed to be taken away from you. And [so] from every adventure along the way, you will gain a greater perception of the mystery of yourself. ...then you can say with grace, dignity, and humble strength...the I AM that I am is the essence of All That Is. ...To become God is to say...‘I Am’ ¼[For] you are gods created of God...gods living in the wonderment of their own creation. ”

Indeed, the mystery of the ‘I’ inside of us is the mystery of God, for “the kingdom of God lies within”, as you will recall. It is only when we give up the preconceptions we have of ourselves that we open up to the Great Mystery which is in us, which is ‘I’, which is God. For, just as God cannot be known by the mind, neither can ‘I’.

All is One Mystery. There is no division. We are all the One God Mystery, and yet God cannot even understand how that is possible.
