It seems a very long time ago now, before the launch of the Silent Eye, that I wrote “Coming Through”, about the way we are sometimes guided by unseen hands. It was an attempt to describe what drives the work forward and how we experience that. Not just within the School, but all of us, throughout our lives, will feel that touch. There are many names and expressions used for this experience, perhaps the most frequent and generic term is ‘contact’ and while the Silent Eye is a ‘contacted school’, those words mean nothing to those outside of the esoteric world.
It is an awkward subject to address, as those who have not consciously felt that touch may well look askance at the weirdos and dismiss the whole concept as lunacy. Those who have felt it may have formed their own theories and come to a personal understanding, couched within a frame of reference that accords with their own belief system. It is, unquestionably, an intimate and subjective process that can neither be proved nor shared… except, perhaps, by the eventual results and in esoteric terms, that is always a good measure. It is one where only the individual can really ‘Know’ the truth of the experience.
For most of us contact is simply that… a Knowing. An imperative, a touch on mind, heart and soul. For many it is felt as ‘inspiration’. There are seldom visions or voices… few, indeed, are those who have these. Even among those who do feel that touch in this way, it may be simply the mind’s ability to rationalise the incredible by drawing pictures. It actually doesn’t matter. To those who feel that touch and recognise it, the ‘how’ is unimportant…it is perhaps the most real thing they will ever know.
Even for those who walk with that contact as part of their daily lives there is that balance of utter certainty on a level difficult to explain… and the occasional doubtful questioning of sanity or self-delusion. This, I think, is a good thing. A necessary one.
