~ Really, what we all want is peace of mind, and we err when we look to find any peace in a mind that’s binary (thinks in opposites, in comparing/contrasting, either/or, good/bad) and is therefore always conflicted. Fortunately, our nature is peace. In loving awareness which we are, the mind’s activities are lovingly, non-judgmentally, openly watched. We simply remain as a spectator, enjoying watching the mind, being in the game but not of it.
We rest in this aware, undisturbed being, as the ‘weather’ that’s experienced by the body/mind comes and goes. We remain here, alertly watching. And fully loving all of our Self, as it happens here and now. Sans interest, sans maintenance, Mind settles, conflicts no longer fed by fears, fade away.. occasional angst appears; it is welcomed, seen, accepted and let go, sometimes in a few hours, but more often, immediately. We drop the negatives like hot coal. We simply move on; we watch, enjoy and share what we are in every-day aware living.
AWARENESS, LIKE PEACE, DOES NOT COME OR GO.
Even after flashes of awakening, the ego/mind almost always continues to create residual confusions with its believed ideas about reality. It helps to realize that awareness is not an experience which comes and goes. For the supposed ‘me’, it was essential to direct all inquiry inside to WHO…WHO IS THE ‘I’ that lives and breathes; who or what is the knower of all this body/mind activity? Turns out there is no knower and nothing known – only a subtle Knowing. There’s an obvious knowing that ‘I’ am not the body, ‘I’ am not the mind. That knowing abides. It simply, immediately, thoughtlessly, impersonally and always, remains. That which we call ‘awareness’ is not a personal sensation, vibration or experience. This awareness cannot be described and known, yet it is.
Only Awareness is aware of itself. We are that light – that knowing, of all things, events and experiences. To see that in our Self, all we need ‘do’ is stop all – ALL – doing. Nirvana means “total cessation” Let everything be exactly as it is, here/now.. no more questions asked, no more feelings explored. We drop them all unconditionally. Indeed, if that ‘happens’ (it is not our doing, it is grace) we discover – we uncover – that we are already awake; there’s a direct seeing of the seer and the fact that the source, the light that illuminates our infinite knowing and being, is what we are and this is.
We are that which is even now, simply aware of these words, of the breath, the pulse, the dynamic hum and buzz of this alert aliveness, here/now. We are pure living spirit – the whole Self of the universe, and beyond..in truth, we are transported from knowing to unknowing, beyond being and becoming, beyond time and space. We are that unknown, that great alert intelligence, and we rest infinitely in the natural peace, beauty and joy of being unknown. In silence and stillness. In love, so to speak.
WHAT BLOCKS THE LIGHT OF INNER SEEING
IS THE MIND’S IDEAS ABOUT PERSONALLY BEING.
WHAT WE ARE IS ONLY LOVE WATCHING YOU SEE,
IN ONE SPIRIT, THERE’S NO ME LOOKING AT ME.
THERE’S ONLY ONE LIGHT IN AWARE BEING
THERE’S NO PERSONAL SEER, ONLY SEEING.
Enjoy your Self 🙂
