A Heavy Anchor

When you do not abandon attachments, you are like an anchor that has fallen from its connection to a great ship and has sunk to the bottom of the deep ocean and forgotten by the ship master. You see, my precious children, the ship that I speak of is the Ship of Life which is the Religion of Light that is able to bring salvation to all humanity. The deep ocean is the world that entices humanity to all sorts of evils and is full of darkness.” — Teaching of Mir Izgadda 5:3-5

There are some very strong words in this passage from the Holy Book of Light. First, those who can not abandon attachments, are compared to an anchor that fell tot he bottom of the ocean. But did you notice what Mir Izgadda said about the anchor? That anchor has fallen and has been forgotten by the ship master.

In the same chapter, the ship master is identified as the Living Spirit. God forbid that any of us be forgotten by the Living Spirit because of our negligence to leave behind attachments.

Do not get tangled up in the enticements of the world and anything that can take your focus away from your service to the Father of Greatness, the Divine Mother and the Living Spirit. May we always be busy in the work of the Lord, walking next to Yisho, Mir Izgadda and Mar Mani Khaila.
