Ignorance to Wisdom: Like Filings to a Lodestone
Heruka’s words 19 March 2014
(From Leslee: In response to recent thoughts about how some things and people seem to arise merely to cause distraction from focus or path, here’s what came forth.)
As you progress towards understanding, which brings your freedom, that sense of freedom radiating from you draws like a magnet and the polar opposite is attracted.
Ignorance (in the sense of a state which lacks wisdom and self-knowledge) is compelled, like iron filings to a lodestone.
If there are “filings” nearby, there’s no way to shield them from being drawn to the lodestone…
Unless there is some sort of shield.
So what’s the nature, the point of a lodestone? (See Wikipedia quote below)
It’s an occupational hazard, a given, when one strives for Enlightenment, to find ignorance and obstruction drawn to one like filings to a lodestone.
