People often search for the divine hand within a situation, while they should recognize it in themselves regardless of situation. (And in so doing, the reaction within, is the situation) With the later “mentality”, the aspect of blessing or curse are equal (or both seen as blessing, not from without, but in a wholeness of pure “demonstration”). Great saints have died of painful illness, have been tortured, and imprisoned. Countries dedicated to noble principles have been invaded and sacked. Good people have been poor…mistreated, and bad people rich and revered. All this is to say, if you base the reflective nature of reality upon conventional manifestation (materialism), then you’ll be disappointed. However, if you base the reflection upon the vastness of your heart, then everything will open to you. It will never disappoint…which isn’t to say that anger and frustration may not arise, but even these can reflect back a loving embrace which cannot divide.
Superstition is always about “me”. Either, I am important because of (good) or I am important because of (bad). To be free of self concern and self cherishing, is to free the life to experience (or not, as “experience” as often defined is often still “concerned”) that essence which is both untouched and moves all. To be free of superstition, is to empower the awareness within, and (maybe seemingly ironically) to give birth to real faith. Real faith is one pointed, does not scatter. In practical terms, a one pointed sadhak is completely unmanageable to any obstructing influences. Ultimate penetration is a certainty…just a matter of time. It is sure…seal it.
