My entrance point to Lujan’s Teachings was with Whisperings Of The Dragon. It was like a thunderbolt in my being. As I read the words, they echoed in such an intimate and familiar feeling. I dived deep with them as guides, deep into my body and re-emerged into a new land. And I continued to pull the thread, followed the next book Who Am I? and the next The Art of Stalking Parallel Perception.

Now, I just completed the Online Spiritual Guidance. And what a relief that there is no more seeking. There is just the mastery of seeing. Exposed to his light, I am blossoming. I am learning to fall deeper and deeper, letting the turbulences of bias, beliefs, and ideas that hooked me and the layers of conditioning go through me.

I am learning how to anchor myself within silence. I am learning how not to react but to receive what is by clearing the space within. Day in, day out, I practice this subtle art of surrendering. And it is such not a given. Not to forget to add, that a genuine and vibrant laugh is such a loving wand!

So, there I am, walking, and stumbling, on the path, the only on there is: the path to my heart, the path of heart. Indeed, the path is narrow as Lujan stated in the introduction. It just fits in the Now. Though it is at plain sight, it is well hidden behind the social self.

I feel like being a funambulist walking on an intangible rope to reach for the delicate balance between to be me and to be empty of me. I scrutinize my daily life with its habits, patterns, environment, etc. with new clarity and confidence so as to drop weight and strengthen my inner stability within silence. The teachings are this long wooden stick that help me to poise each step and to encounter the graceful point of equilibrium which leaves no trace if just the fragrance of the lotus of the heart.

My life has shrunk down to the moment and paradoxically has expanded. The beat of my heart has become my resounding priority. And what magnetizes my efforts and intention is to navigate through life with intuitive awareness. There is nowhere to go to but somewhere to be. To be of service.

Dwelling in Lujan’s teachings is like contemplating a deep sky at night, spacious, endless, mysterious. When suddenly, with gratitude is the eyes, a star falls and bursts into filaments of light, and I make a wish to come closer to the teachings with scholarship, or without.

Wish you all what I wish for me.
