Spiritual Guides

They lead us into the unknown.  My guides:

Jean Klein – the kind doctor and violinist who reminds us to look for the constriction in our body.

Robert Adams – the strange man who appeared to live in the void, out of which he would climb to speak to us.

Nisargadatta – the scary guru: so blunt about there being nothing to hold onto.

UG Krishnamurti – the wild man.  See Julie’s “Travels with US” and “The Goner.

Ramana Maharshi – not enough thanks can ever be given to this sweet, sweet man.

Meister Echart – just give it up.  Beseech grace.  Accept if grace does not come.

Ulla – the great quiet one who would just appear and vanish–leaving light in every place she touched

Alan Watts – before his time.  Take his book “The Wisdom of Insecurity:”  it’s all in the title.

Jeremy Naydler – my favorite philosopher-gardener.

Mooji – during many hours this warm man moved my heart

The Upanishads – may you have the fortune to read them at the right moment — otherwise they will be obscure.

The Bhagavad Gita – Get ready to hear God sing.

“One of the greatest favors bestowed on the soul transiently in this life is to enable it to see so distinctly and to feel so profoundly that it cannot comprehend God at all.  These souls are herein somewhat like the saints in heaven, where they who know him most perfectly perceive most clearly that he is infinitely incomprehensible.”
~ John of the Cross
