I stood naked in the desert, turned my back to the wind and released the pressure from my bladder. Sighing, I looked up just as a shooting star flashed across the sky directly in front of me.
This was the third night in a row now. Each night a star has flashed by at the exact spot I looked and at the exact time I looked.
It appeared for the third night in a row not because I looked for it, but because I had forgotten to look for it.
I smiled because in that flash I suddenly understood my actions of late.
I’ve taken to carrying two stones with me. One is dark… and one is light.
One of the reasons I(She) have been camped here for so long is that it has taken me(us) this long to find(wait for) these stones.
The Dark stone is the Yin: the passive, the feminine, the calm, the Divine, the Unity, the Heart, the loving, the waiting, the serene.
The Light stone is the Yang: the active, the masculine, the energetic, the Individual, the Separation, the Mind, the thinking, the doing, the alert.
I don’t carry one stone. I carry Two.
Inner peace does not come from the Divine. Nor does it come from the Individual. It doesn’t come from Unity. Nor does it come from Separation.
Inner peace doesn’t come from passively waiting, calmly and serenely while just be-ing. Nor does it come from actively pursuing it through practices and understanding.
Inner peace doesn’t come from loving. Nor does it come from thinking.
Inner peace doesn’t come from Faith or from Facts.
Inner peace doesn’t come from the Heart. Nor does it come from the Mind.
I am a rational Mystic because I am rational. But I am also a rational Mystic because I am crazy.
The Mystic swims in God.
And God swims in the Mystic.
I didn’t know why I(She) had searched(waited) so long to find these stones, but I knew(felt) there was a reason(purpose). Someone(I) needed to hear this story(insight). Someone(I) needed to learn(feel) the secret of Inner Peace.
I(someone) needed to live(know) it.
And when I saw the star flash across the sky for the third night in a row, I understood(was) the Truth. Like the flash of the star, I got the Insight.
I understood why.
I don’t carry just one stone.
I carry Two.
