Our substitute for true happiness
Is the flight into wishes
Which is only a flash
Of eternal happiness
We seek it on the outside
But it rests latent within.
“Knock at the 10th gate and it will be opened to you…”
9 gates lead to the outside
1 gate leads to the inside:
“If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light.”
This access has many names in different religions (from Sant Kirpal Singh):
Single Eye, Third Eye, Shiv Netra, Divya Chakshu, Tisra Til, Brahmrendra, Triambka, Trilochana Nukta-i-Sweda, Koh-i-Toor, figuratively called the Still Point, the Mount of Transfiguration etc.
Through a pure heart, God opens this gate when the attention rests at the seat of the soul.
Putting our hands in our lap will certainly not lead us to this seat.
We are prisoners of our external senses and our mind, which are only oriented outwardly. The one who surrenders himself completely to God will overcome these barriers and God will help him to see the “Inner Light” and hear the “Inner Sound”, the “music of the spheres”.
