Vision of wholeness and oneness | Irina Tweedie

THE REALIZATION that every act, every word, every thought of ours not only influences our environment but for some mysterious reason forms an integral and important part of the Universe, fits into it as if by necessity so to say, in the very moment we do, or say, or think it - is an overwhelming and even shattering experience.

The tremendous responsibility of it is terrifying. If all of us only knew that the smallest act of ours, or a tiny thought, has such far-reaching effects as to set in motion forces which perhaps could shatter a galaxy...

If we know it deeply and absolutely, if this realization becomes engraved permanently on our hearts, on our minds, how careful we would act and speak and think.

How precious life would become in its integral oneness. And this, I think, is as far as the human mind and heart can go. It is as far as I can go at this moment in time where I am standing now. And I think that this is the ultimate Goal of Mysticism. This experience can become only deeper as we progress; it cannot become more.

It is wonderful and frightening. The responsibility of it is terrifying and fascinating in its depth and completeness. The perplexing insecurity of being unique and the profound consolation of forming part of the Eternal Undivided Whole, the knowledge that we all have the absolute right to it and can achieve the realization of this wonderful meaning of life: one is quite simply part of it all...

The smallest grain of sand, myself and all else, part of the great magnificent chord echoing forever... This was, I think, what Christ had meant when he said: "Let our eyes be single."

To have a single vision of wholeness.

- Irina Tweedie | from Daughter of Fire, a Diary of Spiritual Training with a Sufi Master | Chapter 91 | Samarpan (Surrender) | 15th December, 1966

. About Daughter of Fire | Little did Irina Tweedie know that her trip to India in 1959, at the age of fifty-two, would mysteriously lead her to a Sufi Master, and set her upon a journey to the "heart of hearts," the Sufi path of realization. Her teacher's first request of her was to keep a complete diary of her spiritual training - everything, all the difficult parts, even all the doubts. He predicted that one day it would become a book and would benefit people around the world.

This diary spans five years, making up an amazing record of spiritual transformation. Mrs. Tweedie is the first Western woman to be trained in this ancient yogic lineage. Her story and experience testify that this teaching system can still be powerfully transformative today in our modern world. [>] read chapter one online
