A visitor to the Ettalong Markets had a reading with me on the weekend before Easter. She had not been to the markets before and was there with a small group of her friends for a Special Ladies Weekend.
Her reading went very well and she was exceptionally excited by the outcome and what it represented for the near future. We continued to talk, about this and that. This is not unusual, if you ask Greg, he will tell you that most of my readings seem to go for longer than the advertised half hour. However that is beside the point.
We just hit it off and realised we had a few things in common. One of them was about being in the company of like-minded souls. Well, when the conversation was over, she got up and walked around to look at all our crystals. Finally, she was on her way out when in walked her son in law and surprised her no end. I was peeking out the side of the door when I saw her daughter standing back, giving me the signal to “sshhh”. Well, when my friend had gotten over her surprise with seeing her son in law, in walked her daughter and she was all but reduced to tears. They hadn’t seen each other for a few months, and they decided to come to Ettalong to see her for a surprise. It was a well kept secret apparently with her, although all her friends and family knew about it.
It turned out to be a very Special Meeting Place in our Spirit Connections that day. A day that filled me with inspiration and joy in my heart and soul.
Official Meaning: The Master in Zen is not a master of others, yet a master of himself. His every gesture and his every word reflect his enlightened state. He has no private goals, no desire that anything should be other than the way it is. His disciples gather around him, not to follow him, rather to soak up his presence and be inspired by his example. In his eyes, they find their own truth reflected, and in his silence, they fall more easily into the silence of their own beings.
The Master welcomes his disciples, not because he wants to lead them, but because he has so much to share. Together they create an energy field that supports each unique individual in finding his or her own light.
Beyond Mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea – and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds awareness. The whole work of meditation is to make you aware of all that is “mind” and dis-identify yourself from it. That very separation is the greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Intuitive Meaning: The Master is full of wisdom, truth, and true meaning – or knowledge. He is the very epitome of the ancient, tranquility that does not need to impress, yet inspires the consciousness to profound understanding of The Universe and all that there is. He is simply here – in the NOW that is. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all hearing. It is the little nuances that happen in life which are nurtured and grown within him, to inspire to others their aspirations of life. I am The Master.
