Watkins Mind Body Spirit|Issue 49
The Danish mystic, musician and bestselling author visited Watkins Books in London to speak and answer questions about his apprenticeship with his spiritual teacher, the Seer.
QUESTION: How did you meet the Seer?
LARS MUHL: I met the Seer in 1998 after I was in severe pain and lying in bed most of the time for 3 years. I was kind of crucified by physical, psychological and psychic pain. It felt like an iron bar was running through my upper body. I prayed and tried to argue with God: “Dear God, tell me what I have done wrong and I will make it all good and I will be the best person in the whole wide world”. But it was a one-way communication, there came no answer.
It felt like being at the bottom of a mud hole looking up towards the light and every day I was climbing towards the light and as soon as I was getting a hold to pull me out of the hole I was slipping back to the bottom and I had to wait for the next day or the day after to have the strength to try again.
Suddenly, one day - it was grace, really there was a voice coming from somewhere saying: “If you are lying there, feeling so much pain, why not take upon you the pain of everybody else in the world?” And somehow something in me knew that if I didn’t comply with this I wouldn’t get another chance. And I said “Yes!” and in that exact moment I felt a kind of relief. It was as if I was standing beside my own body lying there and I felt absolutely no pain.
The week after this happened I got in contact with the Seer. At that time I didn’t put two and two together and didn’t realize that these two events were connected. And of course they were. Because I was somehow sending out a signal that now I am ready.
