Sometimes this is the cry of my life, “Can I get a Witness.”
As long as things a happening to you.
As long as your thoughts and emotions dominate your life.
As long as the interpretations of others dominate your meditations.
Your life is in need of a Witness and believe it or not you are that Witness!
All this stuff is a distraction unless you become the Witness the one behind all the noise and commotion.
Like God you can be engaged in dynamic time and the creative process, but with being the victim or victor.
All things work together for good for the Witness, who is in love.
The Witness who lives in between what I am being to see as The Middle Path, dwells with God while living as the Witness of His/Her life. What is needed is to take time in order to spend time, in that Space where a Witness lives and has His/Her Being.
I was asked the other day by a Hindu Friend from India what I think The Middle Path is. He had noticed I had a good number of friends from India and that as a Christian I seemed to respect their spirituality. To Him this appeared to be a Middle Path and He had some interest in how I might define it.
Now I understand that anything called The Middle Path will be misunderstood by those who practice The Only Way. This however is not the point of The Middle Path, but rather The Middle Path is merely that which creates space for people to know and love and learn from each other. So just off the top of my head and in the spur of the Moment I defined The Middle Path as follows.
The Middle Path perceives that any spiritual journey must be humble and willing to listen to God wherever the voice comes from. It avoids being dogmatic or judging another persons spiritual journey and puts a premium on Knowing them. The Middle Path serves to allow us to experience the love of God as it relates to all of humanity, without the confines of I am right and you are wrong. It merely creates a space where anything can happen, including the work of the Spirit of God.
