Alone with the One


By Colette Aboulker-Muscat


I live in time
And out of time,
By inner experience.
For all of us,
At every instant
It is possible to do so…
Then, the garden
Is here and now
And, here and now is the kingdom…

The great mystic and teacher, Colette Aboulker-Muscat called this collection of poems, a progressive teaching that if embraced could propel you to climb the ladder of self-mastery and serve as a platform for which to jump to Spirit. Dr. Gerald Epstein, in the frontispiece to the poems describes Colette as the Queen of Light.

I met Mme. Colette Aboulker–Muscat in June, 1974, and she instantly became my teacher. At our first meeting I had a spiritual epiphany within five minutes. As I learned more about her–a process that continues–I discovered that she had successful careers in sculpting and in dance during the earlier part of her life. She also was a gifted musician and writer. Then, at the age of 83 she turned to poetry, a special sort of poetry that conveys the essence of her spiritual teaching, a teaching that has become my own path for over two decades….
Colette’s teaching cannot be easily classified, except to say that it follows in the general direction of the Western spiritual tradition. The sources of this tradition go back to ancient Mazdean, Persian, Egyptian, Hebraic, and Manicheaist sources. This teaching is all about light; it is a mysticism of light… “
