Enlightenment - Part I
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
What am I?
You are what you make of yourself; a mixture of lower and higher self. Light which we call soul, activates all the multifarious layers of consciousness. We are caught trying to balance and fulfill a hierarchy of needs until we reach the inner joy that has been calling us all the We are caught for example, by love of beauty which cannot last, finally become depressed, which leads to awakening. this world is not made for permanent beauty.
It is not the thing, but the meaning that you are after - we are in an impermanent world seeking the boundless and permanent.
