When we allow the Creator/the Pure Source/ the Divine to transform us as only It can, we “know” in a way that is beyond words, books, and self-improvement programs. That does not mean that the latter have no value. The years we have spent sincerely investigating paths to transformation or enlightenment, the years we have spent reading so many spiritual books, the times we have spent diligently practicing this method or that gave us much information. But they didn’t give us the knowledge that actually transforms or enlightens the spirit. All that effort, the accumulation of all that information prepared the groundwork for the gift of Knowledge. We were letting the Creator know that we craved union, that we were wholehearted in our search for direct connection to the Pure Source, to the Divine.
That connection, however, is a gift. We don’t earn it. We can prepare ourselves for it. The Grace of the Creator decides whether or not to gift us with direct connection, with knowledge of the Divine, with transformation, with enlightenment.
Information cannot effect the miracle of transformation or enlightenment. We can read about them, write about them, talk endlessly about them, fill our brains with methods and protocols and “spiritual” practices but none of the foregoing can give us the experience of transformation/enlightenment.
Knowledge is a quality of soul, a Divine quality that the Grace of the Creator blesses us with. It is profound, deeply transformative, mysterious, as mysterious and yet as simple as the Silence at the heart of the Source of Life itself. It is substantive, experiential, reaching to the very essence of our being. It impacts every aspect of our lives. And that impact is accomplished by the Creator, by the Divine, by the Pure Source in stillness without our effort, our striving, and our control.
When we are blessed with this Knowledge, there is an ever growing awareness as to who we really are and our life’s purpose. There is an urgency to surrender fully to the wisdom of nature and the mystery of the Divine. There is finally the miracle of evolving transformation, of ever deepening enlightenment.
