Understanding the Divine Human?

The Divine Human is someone who experiences himself/herself as literally divine. It's a state of consciousness that changes the way we experience self and the world, a consciousness free of identity, time and story, and the whole problem-ridden labyrinth of mind that dominates our lives. In this awareness, you experience "your" consciousness and being as the consciousness and being of God. Now because this experience is nothing like you can imagine, and nothing like what's depicted in popular culture, don't imagine anything. Don't think about it. Our goal here is direct experience. Then you discover for yourself what the Divine Human is. You can't figure this out and the mind won't solve this problem.

Here's how Sufi poet Hafez explains it…
So much from God
That I can no longer

A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim,
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of Itself
With me

That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel,
Or even pure

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And Freed

Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.

To discover God as Hafez did, you have to dissolve every concept and image you have about yourself, the world and God. That's the price of admission!
