GETS THE ANNOINTING?
QUICK WORD ON ECSTATIC EXPERIENCES
Those of you who have received and desire more ecstatic experiences from the Anointing of Rasa, just a few words.
The Anointing comes to a clean and pure heart, one that is unfettered and not detained by indulgence and desires of the world and the flesh. One who is longing for God and yearns for God and does things that prove it.
Because these experiences sometimes translate as 'lovers' ecstatic embraces, kisses and touches, even sex, those with polluted minds make fun of this. Or those who are confused think that by longing for 'spiritual tantric sex' that they will have these experiences. It is the OPPOSITE!
When I have had my most ecstatic experiences and visions, it was during times of the worst suffering, self sacrificial love, and spiritual poverty. It was in my abject loss, total rejection, and sorrow, and almost tragic situations, that God appeared in ecstatic visions.
This is just a word to the wise. I am not saying seek sorrow or pain. By no means. Enough pain comes to us daily without seeking it! My experiences happened while I was worshipping Jesus, Mary, saints of Christian and Yoga disciplines. But if you have a living guru (yes I have had them, also) it just might be a bit easier. You most probably can receive this Anointing without any present suffering - but the openness and purity of heart, the sincerity with which you install Rasa into your heart, is paramount.
I am simply saying that those who receive the Anointing are NOT those who are seeking the flesh, material gain, physical pleasures, etc. They are those who are seeking Spirit and those who are Lonely, Rejected, Alone, Forsaken, Hurting, etc. It is much more likely these will open their hearts and their hearts will receive these Gifts.
