Divine Translation: From Z to A

Updated on October 20, 2012
And to seek with one's Heart.

"Being takes you beyond the polar opposites of mind and frees you from dependency on form." -Eckhart Tolle

“Wonder and soften and open. Let understanding lead. Trust the letting go and follow its leading.”

-Ray Grigg, The Tao of Being: A Think and Do Workbook

With Reviving the Sacred: A Poem we were able to get in touch with the Sacred via an experience that was initially either positive or neutral in emotional or intellectual content; with Opossums, Shenpa and Spiritual Delights, one with an initially negative emotional or intellectual content. In both instances, we were able to get in touch with the joy, peace and love behind the apparent, to get in touch with the Sacred.

Page 264 of the book The Da Upanishad, mentioned that ‘Divine Translation … is not merely the inherent transcendence (and “Recognition”) of conditional existence, but the “Perfect Outshining” of it (without exclusion). Therefore, “Divine Translation” is the “Perfect Outshining” of conditional existence itself, in (and by) Consciousness Itself.

The true Spirit-Force is the Inherent Radiance of the Divine Self. And it is not to be equated with any of the mechanics, polarities {i.e., positive and negative}, or forces of conditional Nature {i.e., yin and yang}.’

If we are able to go beyond the duality of positive and negative, we are able to touch the Sacred, the Divine behind the experience with the created.

As previously written, it seems that the ability to be present or to be able stay with the moment, in particular sitting with the shenpa is the key to arriving at experiencing the Sacred and its spiritual delights of joy, peace and light, regardless of external stimuli.

On my profile page, I make mention of using the site as a documentation of the evolution of my spiritual journey. This article then is a Z to A or backwards documentation, of my journey from Divine Translation.

I cannot claim to have perfected the process but, consciously aware that the ego-based self reasserts itself every now and then as one goes along one’s path, I can only surrender and turn everything over to the Divine.

Z. Insights from Reviving the Sacred: A Poem, Opossums, Shenpa and Spiritual Delights and other related articles

Y. Buddhist practices mentioned on Prayer beyond Thoughts: Turning Meditation into a Daily Routine

X. Gratitude and Forgiveness

W. Openness, Reverence, Wonder


N. The various challenges in life, as among our greatest teachers


C. Acceptance which was felt as prerequisite to being truly loving

B. Taoist principles

A. Christian practices and teachings, e.g. “If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you.”, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

There have been sages and masters sharing their inspirations through the ages. There are different paths going to the same mountain top. The best is always that which is most suitable to one and enlivens the spirit to keep on seeking.

And to seek with one’s heart.


“Wonder and soften and open. Let understanding lead. Trust the letting go and follow its leading.”

      Whichever is preferable: coffee, tea or beer ... or milk? Let's toast all around! You're welcome, coffeegginmyrice.

      It's always good to be reminded that all things came from the Divine as this gives us access to the powerful energy that Gratitude has. Every bend in the journey turns out to be a delicious synchronicity when we let our soul lead the way. So happy to share your company because in itself Sharing is a manifestation of the We!

      Yours is a very soulful comment; looking forward to your soulful hubs as well. Thanks!

      WE owe EVERYTHING to the DIVINE. Useful and interesting hub with more information to seek back in the future. Thanks Quirinus!

      Oh by the way, I had an interesting read and an intellectual knowledge of your profile. I've not come across something like this before...full of interestingly expressive and soulfully mysterious description of self at the same time. We are happy to correct ourselves in following the "right" path and hopefully it stays this way. I am quite amazed by the giant brain outcome for your HubPages profile name. Cheers and keep passing "the bottle of beer"!
