The following words are taken from an announcement of Murat’s departing, published on December 23, 2013 for the Threshold Society, written by Diane Wilson.
December 15, 1915 --
December 19, 2013
“Beloved Friends, this letter comes to confirm that our respected and beloved Murat left this world on December 19, 2013 at the age of 98. He made an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the spiritual journey, both in terms of his unusual clarity of mind and in demonstrating the beautiful possibilities of spiritual community. He carried the wisdom of his ancient ancestral tradition from the Caucasus, as well as having undergone a Bektashi training in his youth….
Murat you knocked. You became. You triumphed. And you left us with the tools to leave our exile and to triumph and enter higher states of Consciousness too.
May you be greatly blessed. We will love and treasure you, our splendid Elder always and forever. And we will honour you by following you, by also fearlessly embracing our potential as human.
We WILL be Kings and Queens, and one day you will say with joy, ”These are the seeds I planted and they have claimed their birthright!” Beloved friends, all of us here send our love to you. And our love for you too is for now and for always. Bless your steps on this infinite journey we share."
DianeTo honor Murat’s passing, New Horizons will dedicate the next few days to memorializing his life.
