Light On The Path - An Ancient Work of Enlightenment
Category: Journeys Written by Robert Wilkinson
Today we take a new look through a door to the Eternal Self walking a timeless way we all experience across lifetimes. Welcome to the gem of gems, Light On the Path.
I first turned on to this work in 1974. From the moment I opened to the first page, it was as though I was transported to a distant region and was in communion with Spirits ancient beyond time. Each sentence had a profound timeless echo which showed the way beyond any sense of separateness. Each section answered the questions of a lifetime, while opening doors of perception I had never known before then.
Each sentence is profound, and as we embrace that wisdom, we find ourselves far removed from the world of stresses arising from human thought, feeling, and action. It is said that an aspirant reads it with one set of eyes; an Initiate with another, and a Master with yet another. I have read and re-read this work countless times over 49 years, and each time I understand its wisdom in a new light. Even one minute contemplating its wisdom opens doors of higher awareness forever.
This is from one of the oldest books on the planet, and it will change your life forever if you take its teachings to heart. Told from the perspective of timeless Time, it addresses what we ALL confront as we walk the Way through lifetimes. From the introduction to the original hard bound edition published about 100 years ago,
"…the first form in which we see it is smaller yet. It is a palm leaf manuscript, old beyond computation; so old that even before the time of Christ men had already forgotten its date and the name of its writer, and regarded its origin as lost in the mists of prehistoric antiquity." It was translated from Senzar into Sanskrit, then from Sanskrit into Greek at the time of the Alexandrian mystery schools, and from Greek into English in 1885.
When I posted this some years ago, I was asked how to end the pain of separation, of "not belonging," the sense of feeling like a stranger in a strange land. This is one aspect of the universal human condition. There is no one who does not feel this.
Any sense of belonging is always temporary, usually a function of what we're doing, where we are, and who we're doing whatever with. It is a product of perception, which is impermanent. The feeling of connectedness with a person, idea, or thing always waxes and wanes, but the sense of separateness never entirely vanishes forever until we reach a state of Being where we are one with “All That Is.”
Though we are in fact never separate from anything or anyone for even an instant, our perception of separateness and longing for connectedness can never be satisfied. That's because our sense of identification with anything always changes, due the nature of our Eternal Self.
Our Eternal Self is forever free to explore infinity and eternity. That is not conducive to feeling "at home" with a thing, idea, perception, or person for any "permanent" length of time. It's why we evolve, whether we want to or not, or know we are (or believe we aren't), growing into our Spiritual Self.
St. Issa the Nazar was not in the habit of saying frivolous, useless, or irrelevant things. He addressed this timeless universal human experience when he uttered the immortal words "the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." Anyone who would aspire to a constant experience of Eternal Consciousness will have to deal with this great truth for all humanity through all ages.
We cannot end the universal longing for connectedness through mental exercises, except that in focusing the mind on eternals, we may be able to get beyond the astral plane and its uncontrolled desires. And to that end, one of the most venerable works we can use to stay focused on our immortal state is Light on the Path. Contemplate every single line, every single note for lines that have notes, and every single comment on every part of this work. These notes and comments are linked within the work itself.
As I told the inquirer, "Engrave its teachings on your heart if you would grow beyond the longing that cannot be ended (since it is a part of the basic fabric of humanity throughout the ages.) The reward? A constant experience of yourself as an Eternal loving, wise, intelligent Self, beyond suffering, yet able to walk in the midst of the suffering without losing your equipoise."
For your contemplation, in hopes that we can end the suffering of all sentient beings through its Ageless wisdom,
