The Size of Your World is the Depth of Your Consciousness

Standing on the shoulders of giants_Nishita-ji

This woman cannot make a clumsy movement. She cannot make a face other than one that projects peace. When in her presence everything becomes calmer, as if covered by a cloud of comfort.

Suddenly I feel the size of a pinhead. Everything becomes immaterial. The only thing important is understanding, acceptance, and peace.

Nishita-ji begins to speak to the crowd gathered to listen to her. She begins by saying:

Eternal Father Mother of the Universe. This is as far as I can go. From here I shall await your grace to lift me up to a place that on my own I cannot hope to go.

She closes her eyes for a moment before she opens them to look around the room. She smiles and begins to speak.
All wisdom, all compassion, all strength, all sacrifice.

She speaks for 1 hour then pauses to review her points with us. No notes. No struggle. All smooth. Then she continues speaking for another hour and time flows --- just as she flows. As smooth as silk.

So this is why the Bible says, "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Let there be peace on earth. And let it begin with you and me.
