For years I have been an avid student of sacred texts from many, many sources. It is always a delight to absorb the deliciously unique metaphors and stories that are used to describe the divinity of our human experience. At the same time it is deeply comforting to unveil the common threads that wind within each variation. For myself, this commonality always reveals a Truth.
Today I will share a passage from the Upanishads. which are one of the many sacred texts that arise from Indian (India) spirituality. This passage appears in the Tejobindu Upanishad, which is considered one of the minor Upanishads. In this case, minor does not mean of less importance. It simply means it has been less commented on, versus lacking in wisdom or expressive power.
I was quite moved the first time I read these words, and was touched again recently. This comes from a version translated by Eknarth Easwaran. For those unfamiliar with Upanishadic language, Brahman, is the Godhead.
I believe these words may touch many of you deeply. Blessings!
