Can Man Truthfully Teach God?

628441_4b36All words possess fallibility. Whether spoken, written or insinuated with hand gestures words possess representations of another individual’s thoughts.

Words originated with grunts, art painting on walls, object displays, group movements. and eventually morphed into language.

More significant, words preceded creation, in the beginning words described our unexplainable environment.

What does this mean for the Dragon? This should be not surprise I have no clue how to describe my source. In other words, I am not pompous enough to believe my words define God, more so, than the television minister or a drunk pushing a cart.

Words Misguide Us

**

As a matter of fact, I believe words demand the least respect concerning spiritual restoration. The howl of a lone wolf speaks louder than a million men shouting about God. Words embed perceptions, misconceptions, truths, and lies. When are we not sure words convey nothing more than artificial jargon.

The Dragon’s tongue reflects the ego mind and spiritual purity at times. I do not profess a secret to Tao, God, Source or the mystery. Finely dressed in an Armani suit or resting atop a leaf, I have no clue about the whereabouts your God.

This may be unsettling for some since vast amounts of men proclaim knowledge of God’s whereabouts. I will not contest opinions or facts on their opinion. Some may be right, however, I posses no faith in God’s location declared the tongues of men.

I Trust my Heart

**

My spiritual restoration desired no traditional stories or ceremonial rituals for belief. I selected or my source selected a path of darkness for my spiritual edification.   420441_4dba

I retraced my steps to a time before birth.  The experience difficult and exhausting it was the hardest expose I ever endured.  I trusted no person and found “I AM.” I sought everything, and discover nothing.  I surrendered to darkness and awaken by light.

You see, again words are tricky and confusing, even when spoke by the Dragon.  However, as mentioned, if one profess mastery of God I retreat into darkness.

In the darkness man’s words do not exist, that’s where “I AM.” I always free with my source.

Whatever that source may be.

Where is Your Kingdom of God?

My self-realization remains a mystery too unbelievable to conceive. A short glimpse in my past reveals a stream of mental agitations rightly suited for a psychopath. I occupied for years a n egotistical infected mind.

Fortunes, fame, and acquisitions propelled my existence. I failed immeasurable amounts of times in my self-created illusionist world. I desired an external definition of self. I was a perfectly insane.

A Stormy Sea

**

The chase nearly achieved its hidden-purpose my self-destruction. My obsessed mind of endless attachments and constant thinking positioned my exit many times. Fortunately, my path to spiritual awareness existed through this portal, this burnt out life. Remarkably and thankfully, my spiritual restoration would take place on earth.  Again, thank God.

“The kingdom of God will not come if you watch for it. Nor will anyone be able to say, ‘It is here’ or ‘It is there.’ For the kingdom of God is within you.” Jesus

417266_11ddI never will prescribed to the acceptance of a God mediator.  I desire to find the God in me of my own accord.  I do not want interpretation of my salvation.  The world’s religions saturated with angry Gods, restricted diets, forbidden wearing of clothing creates more confusion than harmony.

I AM…?

**

And so, I sought a definition to “I AM” without declaring obedience to man’s interpretation of God. This road a lonely stretch of self-inquiry where no exist to interpret the language and sounds of God.  I love it this way.  I am guaranteed to find my source inside me.

To pull someone out of the mud, you must first step into the mud yourself.” Hasidic Master Israel Baal Shem Tov

If the source of God is within me, I must go into the mud and bring myself to the light.

Tao Te Ching Verse 7

The Master is available to all people

and doesn’t reject anyone.

She is ready to use all situations

and doesn’t waste anything.

This is called embodying the light.

What is a good man but a bad man’s teacher?

What is a bad man but a good man’s job?

If you don’t understand this, you will get lost,

however intelligent you are.

It is the great secret.

Dragon will talk later about Kingdom.
