"There are a continuum of avatars who have been sent by the Almighty to enlighten and uplift the world. These sage beings have interfused their most human self with the Divine source. In every generation, like a perennial plant, they emerge, when conditions for their reception cry out. Every person is an aspect of one Godself the avatars are simply the purest example. Jesus, Buddha, Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal, Ibn Arabi, Rumi, Plato, Plotinus, St. Teresa, Hildegard von Bingen, Emerson, Ramana Maharshi, Adi Da, Ken Wilber. These and many other wisdom masters have shown humanity the way toward the Godself inherent in all beings. By their teachings and example and radiant presence, humanity evolves spiritually. Like a fire by which we can warm and guide ourselves, the Godself attracts and calls to our own soul, showing the path to realization. So study the mystic texts and truths from all traditions. Familiarize your smaller self with your Godself beyond all limitations. The same light and love flows through the wisdom of each tradition. Religion is a means to link God and Self. The teachings are tools for transformation and keys to enter the timeless. We use the practices of the traditions such as meditation and prayer to rise beyond the tradition toward the One Godself. When judging whether a teaching is adequate to the task of enlightenment, look to the teachers, the exemplars. To what degree are they realized? To what degree are they living and speaking and expressing as Godself? When you have found the mystic fire, stand close. Your obstructions to Godself will begin to melt away and burn off as cinders. You will see the ashes of fear and self-hatred, delusion, and misguided desire as the fire consumes your body with Love Bliss and Infinite Awareness. Body Mind is the fuel of the Mystic Fire. Shine with the light of Compassion, Laughter, Generosity, Faith, Creativity, and Wisdom. Your life is a medium for the Godself."
