Imaginin'

Post by theeternaliam on Mon Feb 25, 2008 12:26 pm

I though this might be the best place to put this post.

A Visualization
Here's a wonderful image to "conjure" up in yer minds. I got this from a C.S. Lewis book(from the Narnia series).

Imagine yerself w/ an old dried up, dirty layer of skin. Now imagine yerself shedding this like a snake. Imagine that someone or something is helping you(Jesus Christ, or God, or an angel,etc.) get this nasty skin off. It kinda hurts but feels almost good as well. You begin to feel the wind clearer. More.....sensitive, should I say. This new skin is kinda raw though, and dullish in appearance.

Now the being that helped you do this tells you to go in a river that is next to you. No ordinary river though, it's real shiny, glowing almost, as if it's phosphorescent or gives off it's own light. Maybe it's just reflecting light, though, who knows.you, maybe? Smile Well, you go in, and man, does that feel good. Totally new kind of refreshment. It is soothing and very pleasurable. You bathe in this for what feels like eternity(and perhaps, it is) Smile

The Helper tells you to get out, and you do, w/ the air brushing against you, the sun shining on you and a new sheen. Yep, now it seems as if yer phosphorescent, or maybe just more reflective. Smile

Improvize this visualization as you wish to suit ya.

This is a really great story (visualisation). All the great religious scriptures, and much poetry and art and music also contain great stories and visualisations. BUT what is it we really need - not the mental images - but the REALITY of PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

Some people are content with the mental images, and collect art, or music, or books. But the true gnostic is one who wishes to go beyond the mental images to the REALITY of SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE - the experience which is truly beyond all comprehension.

How does one do this ~ that is the most important question, and one which must be answered.

The answer to this question that comes to me is to "Let Go and Let God"
