This week I will be resigning from my role as Webmaster of the SOI-Seattle Kinship and Inayati Order-Seattle websites. I will also be taking down the Kinship site, as it is not being being used by the community in the way I had hoped. I have learned a lot over the past 4-1/2 years of creating/co-creating, and caring for these sites, and I hope they have been helpful to you in your Journeys. Hafizullah Chisti will be serving as Interim Webmaster and may be reached via the Contact menu tab or link on the Inayati Order-Seattle site.
If you are somewhat tech/web-savvy and would be interested in serving as Webmaster of the Inayati Order website, please send a note to that effect via the Contact link at soi-seattle.org.
Thanks and Blessing Wishes to All,
People misunderstand the real work of a spiritual teacher. It’s not to give you information about metaphysics or read your aura or help you fix your goofy relationships or realize “abundance.” All of that is superficial and basically irrelevant.
A teacher does three things:
- S/he prescribes and customizes the right spiritual practice to support each next step you take in your spiritual unfoldment. This s/he does through training in that art, and the expertise gained from having traveled the path ahead of you.
- Through the effect of the teacher’s elevated consciousness on your being, s/he directly catalyzes your spiritual unfoldment. This is real and it’s very powerful, and it’s beyond mind and language.
- But the most important thing a teacher does is to perceive and mirror to you the magnificence and unique gifts of your real being and potential — and to hold that steadfast in spite of your best and most sincere attempts to prove to both of you that you are something else. Your teacher can do this in a way that can only be authentic to someone who wants nothing from you except your absolute freedom.
You’ll get through it all and you’ll become truly whole and even-more-amazing. This is your classroom, and you’ll graduate. The inner depth of you is boundless and is all-possibility, and already contains everything you need and everything that your experiences might have temporarily taken from you.
So find healing and whole-ing within, in and as your own depth — which you already know in one way, as your pain but perhaps not as your potential. The support you need for each next step will show up if you keep your head up and keep moving forward.
