Are you still searching for enlightenment? Why look for something that you have already? A state of aware presence or lack of presence determines how we experience each moment. The recognition of this act of being is possible for everyone. We can refer to this as a divine state of living. And, presence is a natural state of being. Nevertheless, people still continue to search relentless for something that is every persons’ birthright.
Why do people continue to search? Because many factors of our evolution cast us into servitude. The conditioned mind is merciless when not consciously observed. The internet dictionary offers us this clarification in regard to servitude.
Ser·vi·tude – The state of being a slave or completely subject to someone more powerful.
Synonyms: slavery, enslavement, bondage, subjugation, subjection, domination; historical serfdom
“Born into a life of servitude”
Furthermore, the dictionary Merriam Webster suggests the following about servitude. A condition in which one lacks liberty, especially to determine one’s course of action or way of life.
Every Moment Is Divine
You may be asking yourself how this relates to our state of being. Firstly, don’t confuse the term divine or divinity with traditional references to religions or deities. People also associate the term divine presence with spirituality. Ultimately, this is also inaccurate. Furthermore, a word, label, thought or belief cannot truly explain or express the mystery of presence. Of course, for clarity purposes we can refer to presence as a divine state of being. Nevertheless, divine is just a creatively descriptive manner to express the acknowledgement and manifestation of aware presence. Awareness to presence nurtures conscious expansion. Thus, step by step, a person determines if he or she lives consciously or is living to serve the mind.
Did you sense something after reading this last sentence? The mind reacts very strongly against a word such as serve. Servitude may sound very harsh. But, reflect for a moment on how you live life. You might then ascertain that you are actually a slave to mind conditioned behavior patterns. How can you move beyond the mind’s limitations? The simple awareness of your beingness is the stepping stone to accepting enlightenment as a constant state of living life.
Thus, you experience less and less confusion and anxiety as a result of expanding conscious awareness. And, the acceptance of enlightened presence is possible now. Your observation of the isness of now is the baseline for your existence. Present moment awareness allows the natural flow of universal energy to manifest. Therefore, a state of absolute presence allows blissfulness to manifest through the simple act of being.
Wishing you a happy and healthy day
