Does such a thing even exist? Of course. Yes! But that’s a concession, not a boast. A masculine spirituality has a decidedly yang quality to it, an imbedded bias for action. Thus, some women are more yang than some men just as some men are more yin than some women. Wherever we find it, a bias for action needs to be examined and undone. We are human beings, after all, not human doings. “Know the male,” advises the Tao, “but keep to the female.” Most of what yang-men do is unnecessary. That was Gurdjieff’s definition of sin—whatever is unnecessary.
Humble describes a man who doesn’t have any ideas about himself. In this respect, he’s like a child. Children don’t say “I’m this” or “I’m that.” They just are. Undefined, unconditioned and free.
If I knew myself to the innermost point of my being, I would not second-guess myself, doubt myself, criticize myself, improve myself, compare myself or forgive myself. And I would never ever apologize.
Akasha is a Sanskrit word for space, sky, or ether. It derives from the root kas, meaning “to be.” Science confirms that, on an atomic level, the human body is essentially akashic, being 99.9999999% empty space. We’re like solar systems interacting with each other.
We know what a human is but a human being? What does ‘being’ mean? Being-ness happens when we inhabit the now, that split moment between past and future, what Jesus called the fullness of life.
