No Place to Hide

No Place to Hide Dwahl Khul through Catherine Weser

Without realizing it, you may be trying to hide in a world that does not exist. Just believing in a world of nothing but bliss does not make that world exist. In fact, it makes the experience of bliss less likely rather than more likely.

This fantasy bliss world where you are trying to hide does not eliminate your responsibilities or your experience in what we call the practical world, the world of relativity. You might be trying to hide, but actually, you are relying on a lot of assumptions you have made, which may be erroneous. You might think that if you meditate, you will not get angry. You might believe that if you are spiritual, you'll be freed from negative thinking. You could assume that you will be protected from harm if you surround yourself with light. These are not out-and-out false statements, but they aren't correct, either.

It is true that meditation can help you to see that anger is not necessary, but meditation cannot absolutely prevent you from ever feeling angry again. It is also true that your dedication to your spiritual life will reduce your tendency to get caught up in negative thinking, but you may still dip into negativity from time to time. If you surround yourself with light, you may avoid harm, but it is possible that you may not be able to avoid all harm at all times.
