Within every human being there is a tiny seed that will grow and it will eventually guide each person to realize their true nature as one with the Divine. Knowing this, experiencing it directly within the heart, is the ultimate goal of human life on Earth.
Nila Chambers is a modern day mystic who shares this truth. Her house is her hermitage and after 40 years of spiritual practice, at 64 the truth was finally revealed. One evening Nila closed her eyes and sat to meditate. The meditation was particularly deep. Suddenly she disappeared.....vanished...........was nowhere to be found....There remained just a shell in-filled with the only thing that really is: the power and presence of God. There was no impediment to His Beingness....the veil was torn asunder.......a new way of seeing dawned....
God, that shining One, alone IS.....there is nothing other than That....any talk of ‘I’ and ‘you’ is meaningless.....The Divine One is everywhere..... That One is everything.......
Nila looked within and heard the eternal sound of the universe. She saw a radiant field of awareness and waves of heat and energy broke upon the inward shore. Only He/She existed within that space.....exists within all spaces......nothing else ..... the illusion was shattered...
The meditation lasted 30 minutes then there was an instruction to take a piece of paper and write:
I infill all spaces
I inhabit all forms
The energy experienced within is My power,
My Self within that form.
Death does not exist because I am eternal.
I move in and out of the forms it pleases Me to create.
I am peace. I am love. I am eternity.
I am the field in which I play.....
Only That....nothing more. Nothing more!
The next day all Nila could do was cry for the blessing of that night. The tears continued for days. Tears of joy...of wonderment...of gratitude....of awe ...of amazement that this experience had arisen quite spontaneously, unbidden, and out of nowhere. Yet it was also the fruit of many decades on the spiritual path. Nila entered a period of silence and seclusion that lasted many weeks as she assimilated the experience.
From that point onwards, Nila found a deep peace and contentment within herself. There was nothing more to do....the journey was complete..... Nowadays Nila spends much time in silence and the inner gaze reveals the sound and the luminous field. Sometimes waves of bliss and ecstasy wash over her. Nila has come home.
