Naqsbandi are reputed to be an order of the Sufis
who have the reputation for teaching through a living design.
Some say they mathematically designed the great cathedrals of Europe,
and The Taj Mahal - which is why when entering these buildings a feeling
of peace can descend upon anyone who is receptive.
George Gurdjieff (in the photo) was a student of the Naqsbandi Sufis,
and great teacher in the method of teaching by design.
He would design a situation whereby the student had the chance of
actually experiencing their own fixed pattern in a real-life situation.
(George Ivanovich Gurdjieff was an influential spiritual teacher of the
early to mid-20th century who taught that most humans live their lives in a
state of hypnotic "waking sleep." Wikipedia)
This happened here just recently - partly by happenstance/coincidence,
and part by design. Someone was given the chance to see their very clear,
very fixed pattern, very clearly, and go beyond it.
Even with me sending out an email and recording to IML on the subject -
still they totally missed the opportunity.
As I seem to keep saying, when someone is not ready to allow change to
happen, then they will resist all chances of change happening.
Worse still, when they think they have gone beyond it, and they haven't,
they are in an even worse situation - because thinking they have gone
beyond it they stop looking.
Might be a good idea to have another look at your fixed patterns?
How? Check with your closest friends, and your most dreaded enemies.
First make it clear to them that you do not intend to hit them, then
listen. Whether you think what they share is true of not, listen, and let it in as
though it is true. Then, whether you think what they have shared is true
or not, thank them.
If you react, in any way at all - it is true - and you are hearing
something your fixed my mind does not want to hear. And of course you don't
have to hear - you can stay in your misery for as long as you like.
Not in misery?, and yet not in The State? -
The Peace That Passeth All Understanding?
If you are not in The State, then you are not experiencing the happiness
and deep fulfilment that is available to you - your True Self.
