Tabula rasa!

Tabula rasa!

I came across those two words in an English dictionary not too long ago. They literally jumped off the page as if they wanted to catch my attention. After I looked up their definitions I reflected for a moment and the truths they reveal are liberating and this is why I would like to share some of them with you. If you open your heart they might teach you something as well. My prayer is that they do.

Following are the first two definitions:

1. a mind not yet affected by experiences, impressions, etc.
2. anything existing undisturbed in its original pure state.

When I pondered on the first definition; which is a mind not yet affected by experiences, impressions. I thought of a baby. That image reminded me of a state of innocence, beauty and pure genuine love. So this means prior to having this earthly experience we were pure and innocent. And somewhere down the line we have lost sight of our image, which is at the very core of our existence. This is our divinity and regaining that sight is imperative, for our happiness depends on it.

Divinity is something that is unchanged and unchangeable. So this means who we truly are is not affected by who we think we are or other people opinion concerning us. And who we are is 'the image and likeness of God'. And no matter what we may experience and no matter what conclusions we may draw out of these experiences, the truth is we are God's children and as such we are like Him. Our disbelief does not and can never change our true nature.

We often forget who we truly are because we are very distracted by the demands of the outer world. Whether it is work, church, or family demands, etc. It seems like the mind is always racing, always thinking, judging, reasoning, planning. If we don't pause from mental activities every now and then we will become possessed by our own minds. That is why it is good to reflect and shift our perception on the things of the Spirit of Life. Meaning the life force that lies beyond all that we are experiencing, and which is at the very core of our own being.

The truth is when was the last time you visited the inner world? When was the last time you asked yourself “how am I really doing”. When was the last time you really communed with God? We can get so caught up in doing church, and everything else that we may have missed the essential. Which is being; to be one in mind and spirit, to be conscious of life, and that which is fundamental to man’s survival. This beingness is the real source of man's ultimate quest: the way to happiness.

So if you are not truly really happy you have surely been so preoccupied by the doingness of life demands that you have not sought to know the truth of being. And the degree of your unhappiness equals the degree of your unawareness. The more unconscious you are of your true image, which is The Christ within, the more unhappy you will be.

And don't be fooled you are not unhappy because of your job, your marriage, or because of anybody. You are unhappy because you have lost sight of who you truly are, and that is the bottom line. So to you I say Tabula Rasa!

In its Latin derivation these words also mean 'a clean slate'. So wipe the slate clean! Open yourself to a new kind of life. Escape the distractions of the world. Enter within where there is peace undisturbed, where Christ is ready to be born again and again.

Tabula rasa!
