Lived a great Sufi master — one of the greatest in human history — Al-Ghazali. He says: "On the road of human growth from man to God, from "Human capabilities" to 'human reality"Lies Seven Valleys ". The seven valleys have great value. Try to understand them, because you are faced with having to go through the seven valleys.
And if you will understand what to do with this or that valley, you can get out of it and reach the top — for each valley surrounded by mountains. And if you are able to pass through the valley, if you do not need in the valley, if you do not get lost in the valley, if you're not too attached to it, if you stay locked out if you are not affected and remains a witness, and if you always remember this is not your home, you are here strangers, and keep on top of the mind that you need to achieve, and do not forget about the top — you reach it. When overcome each of the valleys, there comes a great holiday.
However, overcoming one valley, you will inevitably get into another. This goes on and on. Valleys of the seven. But once you reach the seventh, and then they no longer remains. Then one reaches its existence and cease to be a paradox, and no longer is the voltage, the more there is no flour. This is what we call being a Buddha. This is what the Christians call Christ the state. This is what is called dzhaynstvom Jains, that is to achieve victory. Many names, but the whole point is that until a person becomes God, he will remain in trouble. And to become a God, it is necessary to pass through the seven valleys.
Each valley has its own special attractions. And the likelihood that you will become attached to something and not be able to get out of the valley, is very, very high. And you have to get out of it if you want to enter the next valley. Each valley top end, a huge mountain peak. And after the release of each valley comes rejoicing and dancing every time it gets stronger and stronger. Finally, on the seventh valley you reach unearthly orgasm — you dissolve. And then there is only one God.
Now listen to the story of the seven valleys and try to understand it.
Do not think that al-Ghazali says something philosophical. Sufi philosophy did not care. Sufis are very practical people. And if they say something, they mean exactly that. If they say something, then it is said to the seeker. It does not speak for the curious, not for intellectuals, and for those who are on the way, for those who are already working hard, and who already had glimpses of truth. This is for the seekers.
The first valley … The first is called the Valley Valley of knowledge.
Knowledge, of course, should be the first, because the person begins with knowledge. No other animal has no knowledge — only one person knows, only one person has the language, the sacred writings of the theory. Therefore, knowledge must be the first valley.
The negative side of this valley is that you can become mnogoznayuschimi, you can get caught on the hook of knowledge. You can forget about the real purpose of learning and to become attached to the knowledge itself. And then you will accumulate more and more knowledge and can accumulate knowledge over many lifetimes. You become great scholars, pundits, but not going to know.
Way to know is radically different from the way storage of knowledge.
Knowledge occur in two cases. Content knowledge — you know something, and consciousness — the mirror, the knower. But if you too become attached to the content knowledge and the ability to learn becomes secondary, you get lost in the valley. This aspect may confuse you, catch the hook, tie — I call it negative.
If you become mnogoznayuschim, you lose, and no longer able to get out of the first valley. The more knowledge you have, the more you will be confusion, because to decide what the truth is, you can not. All that you will hear if you like to be present, it is logical to present, it would seem correct. And to solve otherwise you can not — there is no such criterion. That's why it continues to happen. You go to one master, listen to it, and you think he's right. You read a book, and it seems right to you, then you read another book — perhaps the opposite — but it also has its own logic, and it seems to be correct. However, deciding what they did right, impossible. And if you keep it all adds up, you will continue to accrue opposites — opposite assertion, and, meanwhile, there are millions of points of view, and sooner or later you will become the crowd, consisting of many philosophies and systems. And nothing will help. And it will be the greatest obstacle.
Located in the Valley of knowledge, must at all times be aware of this: to be paid as much attention to the ability of learning, not an object, not content. Need to put special emphasis on the testimony, to become more and more alert, aware, and then the person gets to know. Not as a result of knowledge of the set of objects, but only because of the greater awareness of people getting really to know.
The way of knowledge has nothing to do with the sacred writings, opinions, systems and beliefs. It has something to do with the ability to know — you can learn. You possess this enormous energy awareness. So take care of containing, of knowledge, and not the content.
Disregard knowable — to assign a value to know. Knowledge — is a double-edged sword. One end points to the knowable, and the other end points to the knower. And if you look at the unseparated knowable, you get lost in the valley. But if you are to look at the knowing, you can not get lost and you manage to get out of it. And should you only get out of it as comes a big, big pleasure — because you already knew a something very important, something which will stay until the end, something very fundamental, namely the ability to the knowledge, the ability to realize.
Therefore, if you look at the knowing, if you become more alert to the knower, thus you are using positive.
The second valley is called the valley remorse.
When you start to focus on who you are, of course, there is a strong remorse. Because you begin to feel remorse for everything that did not, you did something that should not have done. So along with the consciousness grows huge peak — and at the same time together with the consciousness suddenly a conscience. Remember: that conscience that you have — it's not a real conscience. This is a counterfeit coin, it is given to the public.
People repeat to you about what is good and what is bad, what it means and what it means morally immoral. And, despite this, you do not have a clear idea of what it is moral or immoral. But, coming out of the first valley, you will have the ability to know exactly what is good and what is bad. And then suddenly you see what you did wrong, how many people you hurt what you were sadists to others what you were masochists in relation to ourselves, how utterly destructive, violent, aggressive, angry, jealous you were still . All of this will appear before your eyes. The emergence of conscience — a natural consequence of awareness.
Conscience, this has nothing to do with the ordinary conscience that you have — it is borrowed. So you can have it, but it does not hurt, it does not cause any pain, which could transform you. You know only about what is good, and keep doing bad, keep doing whatever you want. Your idea of a good, do not have to have absolutely no value. You know that anger — it is bad, and, in spite of this, continue to be angry. On the one hand, you know that possessiveness — it's something bad, but on the other hand, you continue to save, go to appropriate — and not just things, you start to assign, and people. You assign a wife, husband, children — as if they are your thing, as if they can do their own property. Your possessiveness it hurts, and you know it's bad.
This borrowed conscience does not help you load it. But when you get out of the first valley, there is your own conscience. And now you know exactly what is wrong, and to do something different now impossible. It is a moment when the Socratic aphorism "knowledge is virtue" makes sense.
And now — on the negative side of remorse … The downside is that you can obsessing about the past, what you did wrong and that, and what you have done so many things wrong with it. You have been unaware of this, if you start counting all of this, it will end a disease. And instead of growing, you'll be so distressed that the dips in the pitch darkness. Therefore, when more wine, and you will become morbid and begin to suffer because of the past, you will remain in the second valley. You can not get out of it. If the past is very important, you will naturally start to pour endless streams of tears, crying and beating their breasts, saying: "Oh, what have I done?"
A positive aspect is that you should care about the future, not the past. Yes, you saw that were wrong, but it was only natural because you were unconscious. So no need to feel guilty. How could a man do the right thing if he was unconscious? You see that all your past was not as it is necessary — but it should not fall on the weight your breasts. You saw it. And this vision will help you, because you will not be able to do this again — you done with that. You feel sad because you hurt so many people and so many ways, but at the same time, you feel joy, because now this will not happen. You are free from the past and from the guilt, and they do not care about you — you begin to care about the future, new discoveries.
Now that you have your own conscience, the future is now going to be completely different, qualitatively different, radically different. You'll be covered thrill of adventure. Now that you have your own conscience, and it will never allow you to do wrong. It's not the fact that you now have to keep yourself under control — when there is a real conscience, control is no longer necessary, discipline is no longer needed. Proper becomes something natural. And then the light is right and correct — easily.
In fact, as soon as you have a conscience, if you even want to do wrong, it will cost you a lot of effort. And even if you do, a favorable outcome would be virtually impossible.
And when you do not have your own conscience, you should be more effort to do right, but even if you do well, a favorable outcome would be virtually impossible. Thus, a person covered by awe. He is sad for the past, but it is not burdened because of the past no longer exists. This is the positive side, people must feel that the transformation has already happened, that bliss is achieved, that God has given you the greatest gift of conscience. From now on, your life will move in a new direction, for a new path.
It is here that comes true morality, virtue, sewing.
The third valley … The third valley is called the valley stumbling blocks.
He had only to appear conscience, as you can see, as there are locks. Now you have the eyes to see, as there are obstacles. Walls, towering on the wall. There is also a door, but they are very few, and they are, moreover, very distant from each other. And you can see all the stumbling blocks.
Al-Ghazali said that four of them — one world of temptation, the world of things. They are quite captivating. And there is lust. Why all the religions of the world confirmed the need to go beyond the temptations of this world? Because if you are too tempted by this world and too long for his things, you will not have enough energy to want God — your wishes will be wasted on things.
A person who wants to have a big house, a big bank account, a strong power in the world and the prestige directs all its aspirations, puts all his ability to be desired in the world. And to find God did not remain.
Things in themselves are not bad. Sufis against things — remember. Sufis say that things in themselves are good, but the one who began to seek God and ultimate truth, can not afford wasted on them. Do you have a certain quality, a certain amount of energy. And all the energy should be invested in a single desire. All desire to become one desire — only then can reach God, only then can get out of the third valley.
As a rule, we have is a lot of desire. But religious people — this is a man who has only one single desire, and all the other desires absorb a great desire — like small rivers and small streams, small tributaries flow into and become one big gang — as big. Religious person — is a person, all of which have become one desire: he wants only God, he only wants to go beyond the limits.
So, the first — a world of temptations, and the second — the people, affection for people.
Sufis, again, remember, not against people, but they say that you should not get attached to people. Otherwise this very attachment becomes a hindrance, a stumbling block on the path to God. Be my woman, be with your man, be with my kids, be with my friends, but remember that we are all strangers here and our community by accident. We're travelers, we just met on the way. Maybe we'll stay together for a few days — thanks for that — but sooner or later our roads diverge. Your wife is dying, she continues her own way, but you never know where. Or your son grows up, begins to live in their own way and move away from you — every child must necessarily move away from their parents.
We are together on this expensive only a few days, and our location next to each other by no more than a coincidence. This will not last forever. So, be with people, be with them, loving, be compassionate with them, but do not be attached to them — otherwise, your attachment will not allow you to be free enough to go beyond.
So the second — people love to people. Al-Ghazali's third call Satan, and the fourth — the ego.
Under Satan implied mind — the mind that you have accumulated in the past. Although you came and conscience, though you are more conscientious than ever before, but the mechanism of the mind is still hiding somewhere. And it will disappear for a while. He had long been with you, it can not suddenly pick up and leave you. It takes time. He waits and watches — and as soon as the opportunity arises, he immediately jumps out and gets hold of you. Until now it was your master, and you — a slave. And the mind can not accept the fact that you are out of a clear sky suddenly become a master. He will need time.
Um — this mechanism and it relentlessly here. For those seeking mind — this is the Devil. All the stories of the Devil is none other than the stories about the mind. The devil, or Satan, as they call it the Sufis — is the name of a mythological mind.
When the devil tempted Jesus, do you think that the devil is somewhere out there? Do not be a simpleton! No devil, standing outside, no. Temptation comes from the mind of Jesus himself. The mind says, "Now that you've become so incredibly powerful, why worry about the rest? Why not take over the kingdom of the world? And you can take possession of them! It is in your power. You can take over the world, so you have the same power, you're so high spirituality. Siddhi your freedom. You can have all the money and all the prestige that you want. Why worry about God and religion? Use this as an opportunity! "Um tempting.
And when Jesus said, "Get out of my way. Get out! "- He was not talking some external Devil. He just said to the mind: "Please, get out of my way. I do not care about those desires that you have, I'm in a very different journey. You did not know about it — so shut up the same. "
And fourth — the ego, one of the greatest stumbling blocks in the path of the seeker. When you start to get a little more conscious, when you have a mind, and you begin to see the stumbling blocks, the powerful ego suddenly takes hold of you, "I became a saint, a sage. I'm not a normal person — I nezauryaden! "And the problem is that you are really outstanding. It's true! And the ego can not prove it. This is the greatest problem, because the ego says is not nonsense. It is sensitive. It's true!
Still, be aware that if you get caught in the trap of the ego, you will fall into the trap of thinking, "I give," then you will always remain in the third valley. And never reach the fourth — the one that will bring even more colors, even higher peaks, more joy — you missed it.
This is the place where siddhi — spiritual forces — are the most important barrier.
Negative side — entry into combat these stumbling blocks. If you join in the fight, you will be lost in the valley. The fight is not necessary. Do not call the feud. Just one of understanding.
Struggle means repression. You can displace the ego, you can supplant our attachment to people, you can push your thirst for things, you can push your Satan, your mind, but remains repressed, and you still can not enter the fourth valley.
The fourth valley come only those who have no displacement. So do not displace.
The positive side is this: to take the call — the fact that the ego throws you a challenge. Do not take him for an enemy — instead, take the call, in order to go beyond it. Do not fight with it — get it. Just look deep into it. Look closely at the mechanism — in fact, how it functions, as new ego arises in you, as it continues to play mind games with you, as you get attached to people, how you get attached to things. Look at this "as" a cold eye of the observer, without any animosity. But if you, somehow, collide, then you are caught. If you indulge, you are caught. There is nothing simpler things like that. People know only two things: either they know how to become friends, or how to become enemies. This is the most that neither is usually understood.
And, meanwhile, will help third. Be an observer, a witness, no hostility nor friendliness. Be indifferent. See the you only that all it represents, in fact if you take the side of any feelings for or against — a feeling this will become a fetter. Feeling means that you get attached. Remember, you get attached to your enemies as you get attached to your friends. If your enemy is going to die, you will be missed — as well as your friend, and sometimes more, because it gave your life some meaning. Struggling with it, you enjoyed this journey. And now it's gone. And the ego, which has experienced the pleasure of fighting with it, will never be so complacent. And you have no choice but to look for a new enemy.
So do not make enemies, and do not make friends. Just watch. Become an avid scientists observers. This is a positive thing to do. Investigate what an ego, explore with pleasure. Investigate what a thirst, explore with pleasure.
And before you spread out the fourth valley — Valley adversity.
In the fourth valley is the entry into the unconscious. Until now, you were limited to the world of consciousness. And now, the first time ever you go into the deeper areas of your being, the unconscious — the darker, night part. Until now, you were part of the day. Since it was easier. Now everything becomes complicated. The higher you ascend, the more you have to pay. With each step up the journey is made more difficult, and the fall — more dangerous. And we need to be vigilant. Each step will require greater awareness, because you'll move to a higher plane.
Valley of adversity — is entering into the unconscious. This entry into what Christian mystics called "the dark night of the soul." This entry into the world of madness, you hide behind him. He is a very mysterious and powerful experience strange. The first three valleys can take place without the master, but not beyond. The first three valleys can go on their own. But starting in the fourth valley without a Master can not do.
When I say that the first three valleys can go on their own, I do not mean that to go to a must-own, I also do not mean that everyone is able to do. I'm talking just a theoretical possibility. The first three valleys is theoretically possible to go without the wizard. But, beginning with the fourth Valley Master becomes an absolute necessity — because now you have to dive into the darkness. You do not have their own light, which you can use in the dark. And the light will need someone else — someone who has already entered into this dark night and was able to see in the darkness.
The negative side of the valley disasters — this doubt: there strong doubt. You do not know that such a doubt, still do not know. All that you think doubt is none other than the skepticism — this is not questioned. Doubt — a completely different phenomenon.
Someone says, 'God is', and you say: "I doubt." But you do not doubt. How can you doubt? You simply skeptical. You just say, "I do not know." But instead of saying, "I do not know", you use the strange word "doubt." But how can you doubt it? Doubt becomes possible when you face to face with reality.
For example, have you ever seen a ghost. And you say, "I doubt the existence of ghosts." However, this is not doubt, but merely skeptical. You just say, "I've never seen anything like it — how can I believe? I doubt it. " But this is not questioned. Doubt will come when one day, walking through the cemetery, you suddenly come across a ghost! Then your whole being will be covered by a tremor. And then you find yourself in a state where the question arises: is there something you litsezreete true or hallucination?
Doubt very existential skepticism is intellectual. Skepticism relates to the field of the mind — doubt as part of your very being, your very body-mind-soul. Your whole being is trembling.
And in that dark night of the soul there is a doubt. Doubt in God: you looking for a more light — and is just the opposite. You searched for more bliss, and vanished into the dark night. And there is a huge doubt: in a direction you're going, is it worth the search — because you also looking for gold, looking radiant light, the great enlightenment, nirvana, samadhi and satori, and instead of satori and samadhi you covered besproglyadnoy night. Even a glimmer of light, which you used to get here, and those are no more. Even the undoubted truth that you used to get here, and those are no more.
Usually you knew a few things that you do not question — now you do not know anything. Have you had at least some protection. But she was gone. Slipped earth itself that was at your feet, and you are now drowning. And then there is doubt. Then you have the impression that all this religious journey, it seems, was nonsense, that God is probably not what you are likely to dupe yourself that you seem to have chosen some nonsense. And it is better to live in peace and be of the world. Better to have been a lot of things: to enjoy power, enjoy sex, enjoy the money. "What have I done? I've lost everything — and here is the result! "
Each comes looking for such a moment. And if there is such a question, then, of course, begin to defend themselves from the darkness. Surround themselves with armor, defending from the darkness of this darkness surround you. We have to defend ourselves. And if you do, you will be re-thrown to the side of his unconscious mind. You will miss the mystery of darkness. The light is fine, but nothing beats the darkness. Darkness more beautiful, more fresh, more deeply. Darkness has the depth, the light is shallow. And as long as you will not be able to welcome the darkness, you can not welcome death.
So you need to first learn acceptance, welcoming, relaxed. This darkness — the first glimpse of God. Yes, it's dark, but then you realize that it was not dark. What's really the first time you opened your eyes, drawing them closer to God, and it was too dazzling — and because it seemed darkness. And it was not the darkness — the darkness was your interpretation.
Look a few seconds in the sun — and soon you have enclosed darkness. This is too much, it seems unbearable. Looking at the sun for too long, people can go blind. Behold the sun only a few seconds, and then go home, and you will find that the whole house is filled with darkness. Just a second ago you were here and could see everything. Now you can not see anything, you will stumble about everything.
Darkness — an interpretation. However, it is natural. Later, when you're outside of this will leave the valley, you'll be able to look back and see the reality. Only one master can hold your hand in this dark night of the soul, and give you the confidence to convince you, "Do not worry. It just seems darkness — in fact it is not darkness. This first encounter with God. You're getting closer. "
We need to understand three things: sleep, death, and samadhi.
Sleep like death. We call it the East a little death, a tiny death. Every night we are dying, disappearing into the darkness. And then comes death — death, is that a little more sleep. The body disappears, but the mind is saved and born again. After it comes to the final death — samadhi, when the body disappears, mind disappears and only one thing remains the deepest core consciousness. This is the final death.
The fourth valley suddenly you get the first glimpse of how the final death happen to you. If you reject it, if you are fenced off from it, if you create armor, you'll be thrown back into a third valley, and you will miss. And you need only to miss the fourth valley, as you have for ever be afraid to enter it.
In my experience, people who entered once in the fourth valley in their previous lives, have experienced before her overwhelming fear and run away from it — it's the people who are always afraid of what else the deep. Love — and they are afraid. Orgasm — and they're afraid. Friendship — in so far as something more than friendship — and they are already afraid. Discipleship — and they are afraid. Surrender — and they are afraid. Prayer — and they are afraid. They are afraid of everything that can enter them again in the very fourth valley. They may not realize the conscious report, why they are afraid.
And yet, the fourth valley is very important because it lies exactly in the middle. Seven valleys, and the fourth leading midway. Three — on one side, three — on the other. The fourth is extremely important: it is the bridge. And on this bridge needs master, because you are going from the known to the unknown, from the finite to the infinite, from the trivial to the profound.
The positive side — trust, surrender. Negative side — certainly, defense. Master from the beginning teaches you to trust and surrender to it gradually became your atmosphere — because they need them, when you go into the fourth valley.
Sometimes people come to me and ask, "Why we can not stay here without a hand? Why can not we meditate, listen to you and get as good as we choose to? Why do we need change? "
They do not understand. At first it may not seem so very necessary. Why? For what reason? You can not surrender, listen to me and not giving up, meditate. You can not surrender, to engage in groups of growth — it all seems perfect. And passing, like, do not need it. And yet, you do not know what will happen in the future. And to prepare for what should be right now. You can not wait for that moment. If there was no prior training, then you will miss. And when it's time to come home and your will on fire, and you have not dug the well, and will start to dig, by the time when it becomes ready, the house will be gone.
To dig a well before the house starts to burn. So now it may not seem so very necessary. I understand. Logically right now it's not necessary. Why give up when you are listening to me? Why give up when you meditate? But when you become a member of the fourth valley without having to pass will not do. And you can not suddenly learn how you can change. You will have to learn them — learn more before there the need. Surrender must be your atmosphere.
Fifth valley … Valley Thunder.
At the fifth valley you come to death. If you enter the fourth in a dream, the darkness, then you enter the fifth death. Or, to use modern terminology, the fourth you go into the personal unconscious, and the fifth you go into the collective unconscious. And there is a lot of fear, because you lose your individuality.
The fourth valley you lose the light day, but you were still here. The fifth is the valley you lose yourself — you do not feel that you are, you dissipate, dissolve. Your own sense of the center begins to blur, fade.
When you walk into death, when you enter into the collective unconscious, there is a lot of fear and unbearable flour — flour, transcending all the ones you have ever experienced — for the question is to be or not to be? You disappear, and your whole being covered by a passionate desire to be. You want to go back to fourth. There though and it was dark, but at least it was all right: you were there. Now the darkness deepened even more. And you do not just disappear in it. Soon on you will be over.
The negative side — this attachment to the self. That is why the great teachers — Buddha or Jalaleddin Rumi — insisting: "Remember the not-self, anatta" fanoy Sufis call it — when the person disappears. And we need to prepare for this disappearance, need to be prepared — and not just to cook, but to be in a deep salute. Great joy lies ahead for all your suffering is in the ego. The very idea of "I am" gives your ignorance. The thought 'I am' generates in you all kinds of anxiety and problems. Ego — is hell.
Jean-Paul Sartre said, "Hell — it's different." However, this is incorrect. Hell — it is you, hell — this ego! And if others are perceived as hell, they are perceived as, again due to the ego, because they always hurt him. They are constantly get on your nerves. Because of you, this gaping wound, it seems that each of her touches. The idea of "me special" — your idea, and when someone with it is, it hurts. When you have no idea of its special — what Zen people call "become ordinary" — that if you become a regular, then, this valley could be easily passed.
Thus, the negative side — this attachment to the self, whereas the positive side — relaxation in a non-self, to nothing — ready for death, conscious, joyful, voluntary.
Then, coming sixth Valley — Valley of the abyss.
Man disappears. At the fifth he has vanished — the sixth it already gone. The man — a memory of the past, and it disappears. At the fifth valley it is in death, the sixth — the death has already happened, he died, and he was gone. That is why it is called the Valley of the abyss. This valley is the most painful, because it is the sixth, that is the penultimate. Man plunges into the deepest flour nothingness, nothingness. He can not believe it, because in a sense it is, but in some — not. Paradox reaches its ultimate peak: man is, and the person is not present. He can see his own body — but he was already dead — and, despite this, he still knows that he looks, so he must somehow be in any sense. All the old notions of the self are irrelevant. And there is a new understanding of the self.
Case of death, the person disappears. This is what Christians call the crucifixion. There was nothing, and people are — empty sky. Hindus call this samadhi, Zen people call it satori.
The negative side — it is a pity. You need to remember that. During the crucifixion of Jesus shows both relations. First, he complains. He looks at the sky and saying, "Why? Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me? "This negative side. He complains. He dies, and still no help. He is on the cross — and deep down must have cherished the hope that God will stretch out his hand, and all will be well, and turn the cross into the crown, and he will come down, shaded new greatness. Somewhere in the very core of his subconscious mind must have cherished the hope — he might not be aware of it. He waited long enough, and now came the final frontier. He has carried his cross up the hill, he tried out all kinds of humiliation, and yet he waited, patiently waiting — waiting for this moment, and this is his hands nailed nails. Just a few seconds — and it will be gone. Time to wait no more, and aid has not reached, and God can not make out. And a cry, "Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me? "This negative side, peculiar, even for someone like Jesus. You start to think about the past and then complain, "I did what you told me everything you told me to do. I blindly followed you — and here's the result. And this accomplishment? .. "
The positive side — this is a profound gratitude. With a positive attitude people forget the past, he hopes for the future and trust. Now is the last test, final test, and he feels grateful, "If it is your will, so be it." That Jesus did. He showed both the relationship. First, he showed a negative, it was very human. I love Jesus, because he has shown. He was very human. That's why he kept saying, 'I am the Son of Man. " And as many times as he says, "I am the Son of God," he says, "I am the Son of Man."
He was like an eternity, which went on, he was transcendent, which came into the world. He belonged to the world, and beyond. Each Master just belongs to both. One side of it in this world and the other in the other. On the day of the crucifixion, at the very moment when all disappear, Jesus shows both relations. First, he showed the ratio of "the Son of Man." He asks: "Why? Why did you leave me? I hoped, I prayed, I've lived a good life — and this is the fulfillment? And this is the reward? "
But then he quickly realizes that misses the point: if that is the will of God, then so be it. And he gives up. The positive side — it is gratitude, surrender.
This "Why did you leave me?" He gives his complaint, his humanity. He must have laughed at that moment, he must be in the moment he saw his human limitations — and threw it. And then he says, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done." Gratitude has declared itself in full voice, handing final. Now there is nothing left.
Jesus died as the Son of God. But the gap is very, very small. In a split second, it has evolved from a human being in God. The moment when the complaint turns into trust, you become of the human being in God. And he starts to pray, "Thy will be done." Now it is gone. Now he does not have his own will.
And now comes the turn of the latter, the final, the seventh of the valley — Valley hymns Valley holiday.
The seventh valley is rebirth, resurrection. That is the meaning of the Christian Resurrection. Christ is born anew, born in the body of glory, was born in the body of the world, was born in a divine body. And now I do not have a positive, not a negative. Now there is no duality. Man united. Achieved unity — what Hindus call Advaita. Duality disappeared. A man came home.
Valley of the hymns … Al-Ghazali gave her a beautiful name. Now there's nothing left — just one song, a song of celebration, praise God, full of joy. This is what I call the ultimate orgasm.
If I gave the name of the valley, I would call it the valley of the full orgasm. There was one just a holiday. The man beamed. And pours perfume. Now there's nowhere to go. The man was the one I was looking for everything he wanted, fought for.
Man — this is the paradox. He is not who he is. He is the one who is not. But that day, when you comprehend higher, in the heart of your laughter is born, because then you will know that have always been so. It was just you know. The future has already lived in you, it was just hidden. And you had to open it. And the seven valleys of the valley is open.
This is a beautiful map, a map of the Sufis.
