  Plato's Cave

Plato’s Cave


All spiritual seeking has the purpose of reaching the final destination of awakening to the inner Light, regardless of the divine name assigned to that Light. The ancient Greek philosopher Plato described the experience of the journey from darkness to Light. The following description of “Plato’s cave” is an excerpt from the autobiography Memory Walk in the Light: My Christian Yoga Life as “A Course in Miracles” written by Donald James Giacobbe.

Plato’s cave is an allegory of our experience of life on this planet. Plato gives Socrates the credit for describing a world in which people live in a cave. There is a shaft leading out of the cave to the daylight, but the people can’t see it. They are chained permanently to the ground so they cannot turn around and see the way out. They can only look at a wall right in front of them. Behind them is a fire burning, which casts shadows on the wall in front of them. Between the fire and the chained prisoners is a path along which figures walk and run carrying all sorts of objects. Prisoners cannot turn around to see these figures, but they can see the shadows of them cast on the wall. The prisoners do not know these are only shadows, and so they think the illusory forms they see are real themselves. If they hear the figures behind them talking, the prisoners will think the forms made by the shadows are doing the talking. The objects being carried by the figures behind the prisoners would appear as only two-dimensional forms and so would not be perceived as three-dimensional objects that they really are. The shadow consciousness of the prisoners represents the consciousness of our egos, which can perceive only from a limited viewpoint that is really a misinterpretation of the truth.

According to Plato we are like these prisoners who can see only the shadows in front of them and not the light behind them that casts the shadows. The question this allegory raises is, “If one of the prisoners could turn his vision around, what would be the result?” He would see the bright glare of the fire, but at first the light would be so bright it would blind him. He would be confused. With his eyes hurting, he would turn away from the light. Since he is so familiar with the shadows, he would conclude that the shadows are clearer and make more sense to him than what he saw when he turned around.

However, let’s imagine that someone could turn around and become gradually acclimated over time to seeing the light of the fire. Then the question would be, “What if this one prisoner could break his chains and make his way through the rugged passageway that leads from the darkness of the cave to the light of the sun?” Just as he was blinded by seeing the fire for the first time, he would be traumatized to suddenly see the sunlight after being in the dark cave for so long. In fact, he would be so blinded by the brilliance of the light that he would be unable to see anything at all. He would be even more confused than when he first saw the fire in the cave. But Plato believes this blindness to the light is only temporary, and he could eventually become accustomed to the brightness of the sunlight. The escaped prisoner would at first learn to come out of the cave only at night, when he could see the objects of the earth dimly illuminated by the lesser light of the moon, which is after all only a reflection of the light of the sun. Eventually he could walk around in the daylight and see everything clearly. He could even glance at the sun itself for an instant, instead of just seeing its light reflected off of the objects on the earth.

Now let’s imagine that this brave prisoner leaves the sunlight and returns to the cave. The question is, “What would happen if the escaped prisoner told the cave dwellers that the forms seen on the wall are only unreal shadows and that there is a bright and beautiful light right outside their cave?” Well, those prisoners of darkness wouldn’t have any way of comprehending what he would tell them. Actually, they would think the escaped prisoner is quite mad. They might simply make fun of his wild ideas. But if they are strongly attached to their own ideas of darkness, they could say, “He’s a heretic disturbing the natural order! Everyone knows the forms we see on the wall are real, and not illusions, as he says. There is no great light outside the cave. He’s teaching lies to our children!” If they could free themselves from being tied up, some offended prisoners might even kill the bold escapee rather than believe him.

That’s the allegory of Plato’s cave. Plato uses this story to illustrate his belief that when we experience reality, it is not something we can grasp immediately and is actually quite confusing, especially initially. We cannot handle the truth because we are so used to and comfortable with our limited daily experience of life here on earth. However, Plato maintains that we can learn to handle reality and truth if we are willing and determined to undergo a radical transformation. But he cautions that this path is a very long and difficult process, similar to the way the escaped prisoner slowly gets used to the fire in the cave, the moonlight, the sunlight reflected in objects, and finally the sun itself. It has to be a radical transformation since it must change the fundamental nature of how we perceive our identity.

The word Plato uses to describe this transformation is paideia. It is often translated as meaning “education.” But the true meaning is much closer to the Greek word metanoia, used by Christians to mean a dramatic change of heart. This change is not just having a new intellectual idea. Paideia, as Plato meant it, is a 180-degree turn of the whole person toward his or her core. This redirection toward one’s inner essence brings a realization of the reality of one’s being based on personal experience rather than intellectual conjecture. From the ancient Greek perspective this reorientation was the fundamental purpose of education, but today the term education is related only to the kind of intellectual learning we receive in school and college. To Plato, becoming educated meant a journey of transformation leading inward toward one’s inherent essence. This march to the center is a discovery of inner being. And once this discovery is made, we can eventually become acclimated to it. Acting out of that inner core, we can determine what outer actions to take that are in accord with our essence.

          As all spiritual paths, the ultimate purpose of Miracle Yoga is to make the journey from darkness to divine Light. However, the picture above that illustrates escaping from Plato’s cave is not the best way to depict the path of Miracle Yoga. The image below is a much better illustration of Miracle Yoga because it shows two hands joined in moving from the earth toward the Light. This symbolizes the teachings from A Course in Miracles that emphasize the premise that no one walks the spiritual path alone. The section below explains the purpose of Miracle Yoga as a means of joining with others to perceive the divine presence even in this world and ultimately to awaken to the Light of Heaven.

Joining of the East and West, a symbol of Miracle Yoga

The Purpose of Miracle Yoga 

The picture above is titled “Joining of the East and West,” and it is the symbolic image of Miracle Yoga, which blends the Eastern approach of yoga with the Western opening to Christ in accordance with the spiritual principles of A Course in Miracles. We live in a world in which there seems to be a “gap,” a separation, between everyone and everything.

The gap between your brother and yourself was never there. And what the Son of God knew in creation he must know again.
    When brothers join in purpose in the world of fear, they stand already at the edge of the real world. Perhaps they still look back, and think they see an idol that they want. Yet has their path been surely set away from idols toward reality. For when they joined their hands it was Christ's hand they took, and they will look on Him Whose hand they hold. The face of Christ is looked upon before the Father is remembered. For He must be unremembered till His Son has reached beyond forgiveness to the Love of God. Yet is the Love of Christ accepted first. And then will come the knowledge They are One.1

    The clasping of hands in the picture indicates a joining in purpose that overcomes this world’s gap of separation. By joining in purpose, we can see the real world and see the face of Christ, symbolized by the sun, and then we can awaken the memory of God, which returns us to Heaven.

    The Will of God forever lies in those whose hands are joined. Until they joined, they thought He was their enemy. But when they joined and shared a purpose, they were free to learn their will is one. And thus the Will of God must reach to their awareness. Nor can they forget for long that it is but their own.2

    By joining in purpose, we form what the Course calls "holy relationships." Thus we accept the Will of God and realize that His Will is our own true will. But what is this purpose for which we join? It is the only purpose of the world, the one purpose that the Holy Spirit has given to the world, and therefore the only purpose it actually has. Transcending the world of appearances is what the Course calls the “real world,” which is not so much a place as it is a state of mind. “The real world is the state of mind in which the only purpose of the world is seen to be forgiveness.”3 

    So what is the purpose of Miracle Yoga? Miracle Yoga provides a framework for living in Christ with God at the center of your life. It is not a religion in the sense of being a church or requiring membership. You can practice Miracle Yoga and still belong to any church or have no religious affiliation. Just as the Holy Spirit has determined that forgiveness is the purpose of the world, likewise Miracle Yoga has the purpose of forgiveness and also the purpose of awakening. Forgiveness is the short-term goal of Miracle Yoga. But forgiveness leads to awakening, so awakening is the long-term ultimate goal of Miracle Yoga.

    The five aspects of Miracle Yoga are love, service, meditation, understanding, and forgiveness. However, forgiveness is integrated into all the other four aspects of Miracle Yoga. Miracle Bhakti Yoga reminds you that love is your true nature, but you will need to apply forgiveness to overlook your ego belief that you are guilty and unloving in order to accept your love nature. In your practice of Miracle Karma Yoga, your service work includes accepting your special function of forgiveness given to you by the Holy Spirit. In your application of Miracle Raja Yoga, your meditation involves an inner application of forgiveness in which you are letting go to the grievance you hold hidden within your mind. At first glance you may think that first you need understanding and then you can apply forgiveness. However, the study of the Course including its application reveals that forgiveness must come first before understanding. Forgiveness overlooks false perceptions and brings forth the truth that would otherwise be hidden from your understanding.

    Traditional Hindu yoga teaches you to find God within through love, service, meditation, and understanding, and there is not a focus on forgiveness. This Eastern approach concentrates primarily on you and your direct relationship with God that can be found within, and it does not emphasize your relationships with your brothers and sisters. In addition to the inward seeking of traditional Hindu yoga, Miracle Yoga places an equal emphasis on finding God through healing your relationships with others through forgiveness. The Course maintains that you cannot find God if you are only looking within yourself. “The Kingdom cannot be found alone, and you who are the Kingdom cannot find yourself alone.”4 This focus on others is necessary because you are not separate from your brothers and sisters with whom you are joined in the Sonship, in oneness with Christ.

    You cannot understand yourself alone. This is because you have no meaning apart from your rightful place in the Sonship, and the rightful place of the Sonship is God. This is your life, your eternity and your Self. It is of this that the Holy Spirit reminds you. It is this that the Holy Spirit sees. This vision frightens the ego because it is so calm.5

    Forgiveness is especially important as a means of healing in relationships and healing your own mind. Forgiveness involves "looking and overlooking." The "overlooking" part of forgiveness involves seeing past appearances of outer forms and past beliefs in guilt. The "looking" part of forgiveness involves looking for the divine, looking for the love in others. Using your “forgiving eyes,” you can find Christ in others and thus realize Christ must be within you as well. Forgiveness gives you what the Course calls Christ’s vision, which lets you overlook the illusions of the world and leads toward spiritual awakening.
Traditional Eastern philosophy teaches you that your awakening is brought about by using meditation to go within yourself alone. In contrast to the Eastern idea of awakening yourself, the Course says that your brother can be your savior from your illusions and lead you Home to the divine Light. Overlooking your brother's dreams of sin and guilt allows you to see that he is the holy Son of God, and he will always be just as God created him. Your forgiveness of your brother enables you to similarly let go of your illusory dreams and accept that you are the holy Son of God, and you will always be just as God created you.

You cannot wake yourself. Yet you can let yourself be wakened. You can overlook your brother's dreams. So perfectly can you forgive him his illusions he becomes your savior from your dreams. And as you see him shining in the space of light where God abides within the darkness, you will see that God Himself is where his body is. Before this light the body disappears, as heavy shadows must give way to light….Whom you forgive is given power to forgive you your illusions. By your gift of freedom is it given unto you.
    Make way for love, which you did not create, but which you can extend. On earth this means forgive your brother, that the darkness may be lifted from your mind. When light has come to him through your forgiveness, he will not forget his savior, leaving him unsaved. For it was in your face he saw the light that he would keep beside him, as he walks through darkness to the everlasting light.
    How holy are you, that the Son of God can be your savior in the midst of dreams of desolation and disaster. See how eagerly he comes, and steps aside from heavy shadows that have hidden him, and shines on you in gratitude and love. He is himself, but not himself alone. And as his Father lost not part of him in your creation, so the light in him is brighter still because you gave your light to him, to save him from the dark. And now the light in you must be as bright as shines in him. This is the spark that shines within the dream; that you can help him waken, and be sure his waking eyes will rest on you. And in his glad salvation you are saved.6

    In seeing your brother, whom you have forgiven, you can see what the Course calls "the face of Christ," which is symbolized by the image of the sun in the picture at the top of this section. However, your forgiveness of your brother leads to seeing a much deeper level of seeing the face of Christ, which in turn opens the door to the ultimate spiritual awakening of returning to Heaven. Below is what the Course says about this gift of awakening through seeing the deepest level of the face of Christ.
This awakening is the long-term goal of Miracle Yoga, yet the truth is that all seekers will one day have this awakening because is it God's Will for every one of His children to come Home. When you awaken, you will merely be regaining the full recognition of your true nature that was God's eternal gift given to you in your creation. 


"And now the mind returns to its Creator..." 

This is the purpose of the face of Christ. It is the gift of God to save His Son. But look on this and you have been forgiven.
    How lovely does the world become in just that single instant when you see the truth about yourself reflected there. Now you are sinless and behold your sinlessness. Now you are holy and perceive it so. And now the mind returns to its Creator; the joining of the Father and the Son, the Unity of unities that stands behind all joining but beyond them all. God is not seen but only understood. His Son is not attacked but recognized.7

     Forgiveness eventually leads to seeing the face of Christ in this final vision, but this vision does not automatically bring you into Heaven. What it does do is bring back your memory of God. Then God sees you are ready to finally come Home and so He takes the final step. He lovingly brings about your transformation in consciousness in which you let go of all limitations and accept your true nature of Oneness in Him and join with your brothers and sisters in Christ: 

God has come to claim His Own. Forgiveness is complete.
    And now God's knowledge, changeless, certain, pure and wholly understandable, enters its kingdom. Gone is perception, false and true alike. Gone is forgiveness, for its task is done. And gone are bodies in the blazing light upon the altar to the Son of God. God knows it is His Own, as it is his. And here They join, for here the face of Christ has shone away time's final instant, and now is the last perception of the world without a purpose and without a cause. For where God's memory has come at last there is no journey, no belief in sin, no walls, no bodies, and the grim appeal of guilt and death is there snuffed out forever.
    O my brothers, if you only knew the peace that will envelop you and hold you safe and pure and lovely in the Mind of God, you could but rush to meet Him where His altar is. Hallowed your Name and His, for they are joined here in this holy place. Here He leans down to lift you up to Him, out of illusions into holiness; out of the world and to eternity; out of all fear and given back to love.8

    The section below about unifying the mind is an excerpt from the book Christian Meditation Inspired by Yoga and “A Course in Miracles”: Opening to Divine Love in Contemplation:

    My approach to spirituality before studying the Course was a blending of yoga and seeking Christ within, which included a heavy emphasis on practicing meditation. Yoga means “union.” I thought that meditation was my best means of joining with the Holy Spirit to bring about unification. But what does the Course say about joining with the Holy Spirit?

    Joining with Him in seeing is the way in which you learn to share with Him the interpretation of perception that leads to knowledge. You cannot see alone. Sharing perception with Him Whom God has given you teaches you how to recognize what you see. It is the recognition that nothing you see means anything alone. Seeing with Him will show you that all meaning, including yours, comes not from double vision, but from the gentle fusing of everything into one meaning, one emotion and one purpose. God has one purpose which He shares with you. The single vision which the Holy Spirit offers you will bring this oneness to your mind with clarity and brightness so intense you could not wish, for all the world, not to accept what God would have you have. Behold your will, accepting it as His, with all His Love as yours. All honor to you through Him, and through Him unto God.1

    Yes, union with the Holy Spirit happens in meditation, but prior to studying the Course, I had no understanding of the value of perception and how to best use it for my spiritual growth. I know that in meditation I reduced my scattered perceptions by focusing on one perception. I knew that I could let go of even that single perception and enter the restful state of contemplation. But I thought that the limit to perception was its unification into one perception during meditation, and I was convinced that the best use of perception was to let go of it altogether. It did not occur to me that what I had learned about perception in meditation could be generalized into my daily life. I thought that my outer experience of the world was so filled with scattered perceptions that I could not possibly unify them as I could in meditation. Yet from the Course I would learn how to focus on what the quotation above describes as the “one meaning, one emotion, one purpose,” which is the one purpose God shares with me. It is the purpose of oneness itself—which in a practical sense means the unification of perceptions that seem to be separate. The oneness of my meaning, emotion, and purpose and indeed my oneness with God Himself is in my mind now. I realized that to find the oneness in my mind I needed to learn how to unify my thought system, meaning to unify what appeared to be totally disorganized perceptions.

    When I first started to read the Course, I learned about many ways of using the perceptions to grow spiritually. Here is a list of some of specific Course recommendations for changing perceptions:

 The Shift from False Perceptions to True Perceptions

From self-will to God’s Will

From illusions of the past to the awareness of now

From private thoughts to thinking with the Holy Spirit

From perceiving separation to perceiving oneness

From unloving perceptions to loving perceptions

From illusions of nightmares to happy dreams

From projecting guilt to accepting innocence

From holding grievances to giving forgiveness

From attack thoughts to miracles

From illusions of special love to extending love to everyone

From mistakes to corrected perception

From seeing with the body’s eyes to seeing with Christ’s eyes 


It seems at first glance that all these approaches to changing perceptions are different, but they have the common element of unifying perceptions by directing new perceptions toward the one goal of God. Because my background was in Christian yoga, I decided to use the term “Miracle Yoga” to describe my understanding of the Course. The goal of the Course is to unify perceptions. The five aspects of Miracle Yoga emphasize a single approach to unifying perceptions. Miracle Raja Yoga produces a unification of perception by focusing inwardly in meditation on one thought, which has already been emphasized. Miracle Bhakti Yoga brings about a unification of perception by centering on one emotion, which is love. Miracle Karma Yoga accomplishes the unification of perception based on having one function. Miracle Relationship Yoga achieves the unification of perception through one relationship. Miracle Jnana Yoga arrives at the unification of perception by seeking one truth.

The five methods of Miracle Yoga lead to five places that are different descriptions of one unified state of consciousness. In the practice of meditation used in Miracle Raja Yoga, you use one thought to bring stillness to the mind. “And turn you to the stately calm within, where in holy stillness dwells the living God you never left, and Who never left you.”2 The process of meditation is a matter of moving the mind from many distracting thoughts to one thought. The objective is to unify the mind. “One thought, completely unified, will serve to unify all thought.”3 In meditation moving the mind in the direction of unification based on one thought leads to the “circle of your peace.” This place has many other names: “inner altar,” “changeless dwelling place,” and “holy sanctuary.”

In Him you have no cares and no concerns, no burdens, no anxiety, no pain, no fear of future and no past regrets. In timelessness you rest, while time goes by without its touch upon you, for your rest can never change in any way at all. You rest today. And as you close your eyes, sink into stillness. Let these periods of rest and respite reassure your mind that all its frantic fantasies were but the dreams of fever that has passed away. Let it be still and thankfully accept its healing. No more fearful dreams will come, now that you rest in God. Take time today to slip away from dreams and into peace….
    You rest within the peace of God today, and call upon your brothers from your rest to draw them to their rest, along with you. You will be faithful to your trust today, forgetting no one, bringing everyone into the boundless circle of your peace, the holy sanctuary where you rest. Open the temple doors and let them come from far across the world, and near as well; your distant brothers and your closest friends; bid them all enter here and rest with you.4

Miracle Bhakti Yoga emphasizes love. The focus on this one emotion of love unifies the mind because love itself is unifying, described in this way: “…the attraction of love for love remains irresistible. For it is the function of love to unite all things unto itself, and to hold all things together by extending its wholeness.”5 Focusing on love brings you to the “real world,” which is also called the “circle of brightness” and the “happy dream,” and which consists of only loving perceptions.

This world of light, this circle of brightness is the real world, where guilt meets with forgiveness. Here the world outside is seen anew, without the shadow of guilt upon it. Here are you forgiven, for here you have forgiven everyone. Here is the new perception, where everything is bright and shining with innocence, washed in the waters of forgiveness, and cleansed of every evil thought you laid upon it. Here there is no attack upon the Son of God, and you are welcome. Here is your innocence, waiting to clothe you and protect you, and make you ready for the final step in the journey inward. Here are the dark and heavy garments of guilt laid by, and gently replaced by purity and love.
    Yet even forgiveness is not the end. Forgiveness does make lovely, but it does not create. It is the source of healing, but it is the messenger of love and not its Source. Here you are led, that God Himself can take the final step unhindered, for here does nothing interfere with love, letting it be itself. A step beyond this holy place of forgiveness, a step still further inward but the one you cannot take, transports you to something completely different. Here is the Source of light; nothing perceived, forgiven nor transformed. But merely known.6

Miracle Karma Yoga involves taking selfless action and expressing your function. Applying the one function of following God’s Will and God’s Plan leads to the “Circle of Atonement.” Your special function is always a manifestation of forgiving others that lets you forgive yourself.

Everyone has a special part to play in the Atonement, but the message given to each one is always the same; God’s Son is guiltless. Each one teaches the message differently, and learns it differently. Yet until he teaches it and learns it, he will suffer the pain of dim awareness that his true function remains unfulfilled in him. The burden of guilt is heavy, but God would not have you bound by it. His plan for your awaking is as perfect as yours is fallible. You know not what you do, but He Who knows is with you. His gentleness is yours, and all the love you share with God He holds in trust for you. He would teach you nothing except how to be happy….
    Each one you see you place within the holy circle of Atonement or leave outside, judging him fit for crucifixion or for redemption. If you bring him into the circle of purity, you will rest there with him. If you leave him without, you join him there. Judge not except in quietness which is not of you. Refuse to accept anyone as without the blessing of Atonement, and bring him into it by blessing him. Holiness must be shared, for therein lies everything that makes it holy. Come gladly to the holy circle, and look out in peace on all who think they are outside. Cast no one out, for here is what he seeks along with you. Come, let us join him in the holy place of peace which is for all of us, united as one within the Cause of peace.7

Miracle Relationship Yoga is about holy relationships based on partners having a common purpose and about seeing holiness in everyone. Maintaining the one relationship of holiness allows you to see the “face of Christ,” which is the “vision of the Son of God.” In the holy relationship you have the opportunity to see the light behind your brother’s body and see his guiltlessness. Looking past your brother’s mask, you can even perceive the face of Christ. “The face of Christ is looked upon before the Father is remembered.8 The face of Christ reminds you of your true relationship with God and with all your brothers and sisters in Christ.

You have a real relationship, and it has meaning. It is as like your real relationship with God as equal things are like unto each other. Idolatry is past and meaningless. Perhaps you fear your brother a little yet; perhaps a shadow of the fear of God remains with you. Yet what is that to those who have been given one true relationship beyond the body? Can they be long held back from looking on the face of Christ? And can they long withhold the memory of their relationship with their Father from themselves, and keep remembrance of His Love apart from their awareness?9

    Miracle Jnana Yoga focuses on finding truth and gaining understanding. This seeking of one truth leads you to the “borderland” where all false perceptions are replaced by true perceptions. Here you choose between illusions and truth by bringing them together and seeing that illusions are obviously meaningless and so can be easily released.

There is a borderland of thought that stands between this world and Heaven. It is not a [physical] place, and when you reach it is apart from time. Here is the meeting place where thoughts are brought together; where conflicting values meet and all illusions are laid down beside the truth, where they are judged to be untrue. This borderland is just beyond the gate of Heaven. Here is every thought made pure and wholly simple. Here is sin denied, and everything that is received instead.
    This is the journey’s end. We have referred to it as the real world. And yet there is a contradiction here, in that the words imply a limited reality, a partial truth, a segment of the universe made true. This is because knowledge makes no attack upon perception. They are brought together, and only one continues past the gate where oneness is. Salvation is a borderland where place and time and choice have meaning still, and yet it can be seen that they are temporary, out of place, and every choice has been already made.
    Nothing the Son of God believes can be destroyed. But what is truth to him must be brought to the last comparison that he will ever make; the last evaluation that will be possible, the final judgment upon this world. It is the judgment of the truth upon illusion, of knowledge on perception: “It has no meaning, and does not exist.” This is not your decision. It is but a simple statement of a simple fact. But in this world there are no simple facts, because what is the same and what is different remain unclear. The one essential thing to make a choice at all is this distinction. And herein lies the difference between the worlds. In this one, choice is made impossible. In the real world is choosing simplified.10

There may be some uncertainty in your mind about whether you will ever manage to let go of all illusions, unify the mind, and accept your place in Heaven. But the Course maintains that there is no uncertainty in God and so you can trust in His Will being accomplished. God’s Will is your own true will, so in reality you want to wake up in Heaven as much as God wants you to recognize your true nature in Him. “Have faith in only this one thing, and it will be sufficient: God wills you be in Heaven, and nothing can keep you from it, or it from you.”11 Your going Home is only a matter of time and time itself is just another illusion.
