The Heart of the Matter

Home Base


Throughout the ages and even last week, many people have tried to describe the experience of Knowledge -- the gift that a true Master gives.

In a grand attempt to be thorough and profound, they have cited a wide variety of inspired sources to make their case: the Bible, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Koran, the Talmud, and hundreds of other holy books.

Their efforts have been, as far as I can tell, well-intentioned, noble, and sincere.

At the same time, bringing in all of that heavy artillery can confound matters. Scriptures have a tendency to be a bit off-putting to some folks -- especially those who have had negative experiences with religion or don't particularly resonate with "things spiritual."

And so, for everyone out there who has some interest in Maharaji's Knowledge, but is not yet sure it's actually for them, allow me to present a simple metaphor of what it's like. (And remember, folks, this is only a metaphor).

Knowledge is like home base in the child's game of tag.

When you're experiencing it, you are completely safe. Connected. At ease. Beyond the madness swirling all around you. And while you are free, at any time, to run around and play the game, you know where home base is.

Great metaphor that really conveys that sense of knowing. Nice job, Mitch.

Mitch, that is just so beautiful -- so simple, so true. It says so much in so few words, and about a perspective on living that couldn't be more essential.

The key there, as I know you understand very well, is that all that wonderful feeling of connection, of rightness, of freedom, is available to be enjoyed "when you're Experiencing it." The great value this Knowledge has is that you know exactly where to go, what to do to be in touch with that.

Thanks for this!
