I once called a notary who said, “I can’t talk now, I’m practicing mindfulness”.
My remark was, “Well, if you are practicing mindfullness, then why are you answering the phone?”
He said, “Oh, I thought you were someone else!”
My remark was, “You were wrong — aparantly you were not mindful enough to know who I was. And besides, if you were at one with the universe, would you really care who it was?
Can you be mindful enough to pay your renewal bill on time?
“Listen, I’m busy, can you call another time?”.
This notary was about to embark on a spiritual journey to the mystical kingdom of Shambhala. Nobody knows where Shambhala actually is. You can get there through traditional means in any case. Some say it is in Tibet, more informed people have an actual location next to a large lake in the Northern part of Xin-Jiang province in Western China. Others say it exists only on the etherial realm. Rumors of this place are that it is up in the mountains. There are people who have meditated on lightness so much, that they have to wear chains just to not leave the earth when they run (google this one). The problem is that if your spiritual condition is not acceptable, you will meet with a tragic death in the mountains and NEVER be found again once you get close to this mystical kingdom. The kingdom is purely etherial, and not visable by human eyes — even though it also has physical coordinates symultaneously. Fascinating.
Anyway, this notary wanted to go there so badly, that he planned his trip. He practiced hiking until he was an expert. He practiced living in high altitudes. He practiced meditation, so that his spiritual condition would be suitable. He booked his flight to China, and then to the mystical part of Xin-Jiang near Mongolia. He asked the locals where Shambhala was. He had canned food and trudged his way through hundreds of miles of mountainous territory. He passed by those snow runners who appeared out of nowhere. He saw many mystical entities too. They were not angels. But, they were etherial creatures that made themselves visable to him. And they guided him to the kingdom. Finally, he was there. It was just a valley between magnificent peaks. One might be inclined to call it the valley of the Gods from the looks. Maybe this was a sort of playground for the Gods. It was not like being on planet earth. The air was thin, and the spiritual atmosphere was light.
Then, there was a shift. The notary sat and meditated for a few minutes, changed his consciousness. He was in that state of mind necessary to see Shambhala in all its grandeur now. It revealed itself to him. A glimmering kingdom. There were people walking back and forth. One came up to him and said, “They are waiting for you. Shambhala is mainly BELOW the surface. Go into that cave.”. He followed orders and went into the cave. There were rooms and more rooms, and passage ways that went forever. There was light in that cave, but yet there was no source for that light. It was purely etherial and other-worldly. Finally, he came to one of the main rooms. There were 200 buddhist beings there in meditation. They had astrol bodies only, not physical bodies. After an hour, they stopped, and wanted to meet the notary. The head monk Kai-Ping asked if the notary public had any spiritual questions. The notary said he did. The notary asked:
“What is the secret to enlightenment and unraveling the truth of the universe”
The answer was
” Be conscious of what you are doing when you are doing it. Don’t be in a hurry. Don’t fail to do basic tasks which are central to your existance. Pursue your work with a mindful attitude and be compassionate to others.”
The notary asked if there was anything else he should be aware of. The monk replied
“Pay your renewal bill on 123notary, and be at one with 123!”
Suddenly the notary was back in his apartment in America. There was no hike, no return plane trip. It was like it had all been a dream.
