The way in the middle

O Kabir, follow the narrow path in the middle, that's the only way to cross the ocean!
If you take to extremes and fall on either side, you are sure to be drowned!

Kabir

 

The Saints have never recommended any course of discipline neither of yogic practices nor using the pranas, the kundalini power or anything else. They have always laid stress on Naam or Word, the primal Light and Sound Principle of God-head.

There are three Nadis (subtle tubes) in the front – left and right there are Ida and Pingala, and in the middle Sushmana.

Ida and Pingala are material and enter into the astral and causal plane, whereas the Sushmana is not material, it is invisible and reaches above the region of matter. Our soul has to transcend from this central Nadi to reach the plane of consciousness.

On the right side, there are the moon and the stars, on the left side there are the sun and the creations. When you meditate and you have a wish – as subtle it may be – at once your mind identifies with it, and it will take you either to the left side or to the right side; both are governed by the negative power. There are the creations, and these are the barriers for the soul.

What will happen? You will see the light, you will get emotional, and you will drop down. People see sceneries, flowers, or say that angels appear to them and so on. But these “experiences” were never accepted by the competent Masters. They leave Ida and Pingala and the lower chakras aside and follow the narrow path in the middle starting in the darkness at the Third Eye. This is a way where you have not to go left or right into the astral and causal worlds but cross them directly in the middle transcending to the purely spiritual planes.

It is not possible to pass through the Third Eye by own force. It is no path of self-salvation. The Third Eye will only be opened through Gods grace.

 

Where there is neither sea nor rain,
Nor sun nor shade;
Where there is neither creation
Nor dissolution;
Where prevails neither life nor death,
Nor pain nor pleasure;
Beyond the states of Sunn and trance;
Beyond words, o friend,
Is that unique state of Sahaj.
