Change How We See Ourselves

A change in how we live is unfolding worldwide. Living life consciously was not always obvious. A deafness has muffled the constant roar of life. Moreover, we often misunderstand how to live after the awakening of consciousness. This is because the mind experiences no satisfaction in being consciously aware. Thus, the mind keeps us looking. But, we will never find something that we already are in essence. Therefore, we use words as an attempt to explain the unexplainable. Spiritual sounds great. Spirituality even better. Enlightenment is at the top of the list.

But, let’s consciously and impartially reflect on what this implies. We consciously awaken. Great! But usually we then begin to think that we are spiritual. This type of thinking gives us temporary experiences of contentment and happiness. But, then the next thing happens and we become frustrated and unhappy. Furthermore, the mind then says that we have failed and are not yet spiritual. The mind will encourage you to continue reaching for enlightenment.

So, we go back to the spiritual drawing board in the hope of finding the cause for our failure. We think of what to do to be spiritual. There is always an expectancy that accompanies thoughts about what enlightenment means. I can let you in on a secret that is not really a secret. We will never know enlightenment by using the mind as a springboard to experience it. But, the mind is relentless. It is always very helpful in reviewing a game plan to reach spirituality.

Sunshine and Life Shine from Within

“The sunshine and life that you are looking for out there is in you. Metaphorically speaking.  So, let it shine!” The sun rises and sets and it often seems that we are a puppet dancing on a string called time. However, you can cut the strings. Furthermore, you are the co-creator of all you experience. The foremost question to ask in each moment would be what you will create now.

sunshine

Sunshine is something to enjoy.
It is energy of a source that is everywhere.
We can experience it every moment;
It is there each day and in every way.
But, don’t look for it. Rather, feel it
You may now say okay, but the sun is not there every moment.
Surely it is not there every day.
What should I do?
Where is the sun on a cloudy day?
Don’t despair, it is there.
Do you feel it?
The warmth is so intense.
It is a flowing, vibrating frequency.
It is here now and will be here tomorrow.
Be active, be aware, and feel what is always there.

Dwell Within Life and Be Fully Alive

You live and then you cease to live. This is the simplicity of our existence. Therefore, we can say that you are now alive. Also, this seems logical and plausible. Basically, it is everything in a nutshell. Then why is it difficult to accept how life manifests in our existence? After all, believe it or not. You are responsible for how something unfolds. Or, at the least, you are responsible for how you observe something when it manifests. Are you consciously aware or unconsciously unaware? Do you dwell fully within life? This suggests living regardless of the form in which it manifests. Or are you a spiritless existence?

dwell

(Spiritless adj: Lacking energy or enthusiasm; listless. Lacking liveliness, charm, or surprise. I.e. “Complaining and anxious to suit your own thoughts, feelings, and opinions or those of others.”)

You are an object that experiences life. This means that you can mentally and self-consciously live life. Therefore, you will experience happiness, sadness, sickness, and death. However, this is not really you. The true you (universal self) is now manifesting through a temporary doorway called mind and body. Furthermore, what happens to this life-form does not define you. Unless you choose and allow it. This does not mean that you should resist what occurs. Rather, accept and dwell within everything because this nurtures conscious awareness. This suggests that simply living life is the grandest experience. Trust me, the sudden spaciousness and freedom within the acceptance of life will be awesome. Just let everything be.

Mind and Object Consciousness: What’s Next

It is really up to each of us to remain detached from the mind’s activities. Whereby we should eventually experience spiritual fulfillment. This is a completion, a realization; nothing more and nothing less. We experience this through absorbed universal awareness of our role to protect and guide each other during this awakening. Therefore, please know, you are not the mind with its list of thoughts and beliefs.

mind

Consequently, we are perpetually protecting and guiding the universe and even the flow of life itself. Furthermore, the person next to you, a tree, or even a fly is not something outside of you; it is you. Looking beyond the abstracts of our existence will allow us to experience the bliss of unity.

Limitations Are of Mind…Consciousness is infinite

The following is in response to George Ionita’s (Facebook) recent question about Ramana Maharshi’s insight relating to consciousness. Do you often feel uneasy? Does it seem that you are suffocating due to daily activities and interactions?  These are limitations of the mind. Yes, I realize that we think that the mind is the answer to all questions. But, the mind is a box. And now is the moment for us to go outside of this box. Then we can experience how it feels to live Unconventionally.

limitations

Our natural state of being is outside the limits of conventional thinking. But, the mind has kept us closed up within a self-constructed box that it has defined as “our” reality. That is to say. Until now. The emphasized is on the now as a portal to conscious awareness. How do you feel after reading the insight within these sentences? Does something deep within you silently, but encouragingly, acknowledge this unlimited space as you true essence? Trust this feeling because your awareness is allowing universal consciousness to flow unrestricted by the mind. Continue reading

Asking for Your Support and Kindness

Recently, I wrote about my wishes to reach out and share with more people on a more personal level. Therefore, after long reflection, I am reaching out to ask for your kindness and support.  My wish is to start speaking with groups at schools, libraries, book stories, spiritual retreats, etc. Still, I really have no idea if and how my desire to share more personally with everyone will manifest. Not knowing and letting go is awesome. I simply go with the flow and continue to share the energy of my wish with the universe.  

kindness

Well, I exercise letting go and allowing everything to flow. And, it seems that the ebb and flow energy transfer of universal consciousness has offered me a chance to take the next step. Likewise, my desire to continue sharing and serving others through my writings and public speaking might be possible with your help. Continue reading
