SPIRITUALLY OF THE MIDDLE

Walking in the Way
is a direct, narrow Path.
It’s the summit road.

Few there are that tread
heights out of the personal
sense of fear, love, hate.

Few there are who see
above the mortal dreamscape
of false illusions.

Few gain their freedom
from the earthly opposites
that mask awareness.

Is there two or One?
A you, me, her, him, them, those,
or the same true Self?

Within each person
a divine Center exists—
the middle Axis.

Allow for quiet.
Leave the rush of outward search.
The mind seeks more, more…

Only in silence
does the Heart faculty speak.
Inner ears opened.

From a core of Love
the Soul eyes discern the Real.
There’s only one Way.

Your Self and my Self—
universally Divine.
Walk the Way of Life.

 


Human beings are too determined to hold on to what
they have, and they will not give up their limitation
for something unknown. Human nature tries to hold
on to the past, to hold on to present limitations.
It is unwilling to break through for something else.
But while human nature resists change, spiritual
unfoldment compels change, breaking up the old
patterns continuously. In fact, spiritual progress
demands that every form be broken, no matter
how good it is, because the spiritual universe
has a different set of values from that of the
material. It is a “dying” to our humanhood and
a “birth” to our spiritual identity. That is
not a physical death or birth. It is an
act of consciousness.
 
Joel S. Goldsmith, an illumined teacher and
mystic for all centuries ahead
