Mary chose our instructors with such wisdom, and we are blessed to have access to their thoughts. Each one is happy to share their journey with us so that we may KNOW MYSELF BE IT IS, IS.
Michael Hakuzan Wenninger shares part of his awareness and understanding with us in the Spring 2010, issue Number 68, of The Main Central Jin Shin Jyutsu Newsletter. You may obtain your own personal copy at http://www.jsjinc.net.
“The only breath we can ever be is the breath we are.”
In the first two articles¹, Mary’s teachings were entitled, “Being the Breath” and “Kindness” introducing the understanding that these realities are interrelated and connected to the same realization of Oneness…that all is related, all interconnected in wholeness. There are no exceptions to this natural order. To imagine an exception is to invite disharmony. These writings offered the understanding that Being the Breath and Kindness are not two different entities, but a natural unfolding of Being. And yet, how do we know the truth of these ideas are valid? While we may acquire understanding through written and spoken words, the final transformation comes from wisdom transmitted by our teachers…enlightened teachers like Mary.
If we are willing to see and understand, if we are willing to put down our own beliefs and perceptions of the world, we become available for something else. We become available for wisdom. What all teachers ultimately convey to their students is their wisdom. They transmit their true understanding, their philosophy of reality…a wisdom that goes beyond words, wisdom that is only realized through experience and one completely free from the limitation of ideas, concepts or intellectual knowledge. The teacher conveys the experience of an awakened heart and mind…a wisdom that sees with absolute clarity beyond transitional appearances and is ultimately manifested in service to others – service that is simply a natural expression of an awakened heart…that realizes there is no separation from the one serving, the one being served, and the compassionate action of service. There is only our Beingness expressing its natural rhythm of relationships and integration.
To be continued…
