Sahaj Marg(tm) and SRCM (California-1997) - Forest Through The Trees

From Monkey Man (This is from: Freedom From Sahaj Marg - SRCM) on Orkut (May 12, 2012) ...

Forest Through The Trees

My Journey has led me to this place and made me compelled to speak about the Spirit Forest and the true Natural Path - A Path where all are welcomed as Masters of their own Soul - All are Soul Masters!

-True Spirituality is like a Tree in the Forest where the Tree IS the Forest.

-True Spirituality does not tell the Tree it is alone and separate from the Forest.

-True Spirituality embraces the One-Ness of the Tree with the Forest, In the Forest, Of The Forest.

-True Spirituality embraces these truths regardless how the Tree feels about it - It is truth.

Alas, I see many things here that Spirituality is NOT:

1. It is NOT a franchise

2. It is NOT a prayer that affirms one's slavery to wishes and submits oneself to a "Master" in order to achieve some unimaginable goal or entry in some "brighter world" upon death!

3. It does NOT affirm that one's soul is un-clean, requiring subservience to a Master and his franchisees to be cleansed.

4. It does NOT require face to face shut-eye meditation in the presence of a franchised guru-assistant, attendance at shut-eye meditation seminars led by franchisees or costly books one must read when eyes are not shut.

5. It is NOT a path to an elusive (and illusive) Goal which is unachievable without the unquestioning surrender to the "spiritual" franchise, its leadership, its founder, his assigns or representatives.

6. It does NOT rely on un-verifiable messages from the dead, conveniently reaffirming all of the above.

I see many things here masquerading as Spirituality. They are like the mocking birds in the Spirit Forest, singing the songs of other birds. Such spiritual masqueraders ask un-natural things of others while calling these things Natural - though they are not.

The true Natural Path, however:

- Embraces the fact that ones very existence always is and always has been Sacred and Divine.

- It affirms our One-ness with Creation ( Tree = Forest, Yes?)

- It is about BEING not not becoming something you are not.

- This Path is a Spirit Journey that is infinite.

- Because it is infinite, there cannot be a goal. (Even monkey mathematics can grasp this!)

Why is it that a monkey can see the Forest through the Trees, yet there are Humans who choose entanglement in organized despair religions, masquerading as Natural Paths?

I have heard the noisy chatter of empty wisdom parrot-speak - mindless repetition from countless overheard speeches and words read in books. It is this clamor that has brought me here. I am curious as to why humans choose such foolishness and call it natural.

It is difficult for those of us on the true Natural Path to witness. We welcome others to see the forest through the trees - To BE the Tree AND the Forest. All that is required is to BE!

It gets no more natural than that...

Hi Michael and Monkey Man

In defense of the real and very NATURAL Human SPIRIT! ;-))

A Poem by James Clerk Maxwell for (Sir) William Rowan Hamilton, his student Peter Tait, and Arthur Cayley who championned this multi-dimensional numbers system (algebra?). See history at:

and here...

To the Committee of the Cayley Portrait Fund

O wretched race of men, to space confined!
What honour can ye pay to him, whose mind
To that which lies beyond hath penetrated?
The symbols he hath formed shall sound his praise,
And lead him on through unimagined ways
To conquests new, in worlds not yet created.

First, ye Determinants! in ordered row
And massive column ranged, before him go,
To form a phalanx for his safe protection.
Ye powers of the nth roots of minus (—) 1!
Around his head in ceaseless cycles run,
As unembodied spirits of direction.

And you, ye undevelopable scrolls!
Above the host wave your emblazoned rolls,
Ruled for the record of his bright inventions.
Ye Cubic surfaces! by threes and nines
Draw round his camp your seven-and-twenty lines—
The seal of Solomon in three dimensions.

March on, symbolic host! with step sublime,
Up to the flaming bounds of Space and Time!
There pause, until by Dickenson depicted,
In two dimensions, we the form may trace
Of him whose soul, too large for vulgar space,
In n dimensions flourished unrestricted.

James Clerk Maxwell

(James Clerk Maxwell is the inventor of the Theory of Electro-magnetism - Unifying Light, Magnetism and Electricity ... circa 1850)

I like the monkey spirit poetry. Like all the poetry!

Just wanted to comment that after going thru the shock/trauma from seeing this group clearly and then departing, I must say that the only thing I have given up is the opportunity to be betrayed and abused by a guru and his representatives (preceptors). Glad that i chose to just BE.

Lots of intelligent people get mixed up and entangled with this group. Most are at a low point in their life, or at a cross road, or vulnerable in some way - away from home and in college. They are good at spotting the vulnerable.

So if you have seen the light and yet fear you have invested too much time, or fear that you cannot stand on your own. It may take a while to heal but there are people out here to offer the support you may need. It's totally worth it.
