Are you aware of something blissfully mysterious that seems to be beyond mind and body? But, does the mind still interrupt this deeper awareness with its frantic thoughts and searching behavior? Well, look no further because you are dwelling within the flow of life. Furthermore, this realization will synchronize mind, body, object and universal consciousness. Just let it happen if you are ready and willing. Realize deeply that there is a sanctuary within you.
A sanctuary is a retreat or safe haven. Isn’t this what the mind is compelling us to find each day? It wants us to run and hide in an oasis where everything will be just like we dream about. The minds intentions are honorable. However, listening to these thoughts will only add discontentment and suffering to our daily experiences.
The mind does not have the capacity to grasp that it cannot help us to live consciously. Furthermore, it tells us that everlasting peace and harmony are not truly possible. And yet, the mind tells us to keep searching. But, these thought patterns keep us confined within the mind. Nevertheless, we do experience clarity and enlightenment. Although, for most people, this conscious state of being seems transitory. Therefore, it is wise not to adhere to the mind’s thoughts. Focusing on these thoughts will only cause anxiety and confusion. Of course, the mind will continue to ask questions. But, we do not need to take these questions too seriously. Rather, we can focus on the experience of presence, life, and enlightenment without mind details.
Practice Dwelling Within Your Sanctuary
Practice acknowledging the blissful sanctuary that you can create. Yes, as the creator, your relationship with the mind, the world, and universe determines everything. This simple acknowledgment will start the process of conscious awakening. Sounds crazy? But, it’s not. You do not need the mind nor another person or thing to experience awareness. Look inward, not outward. Furthermore, object consciousness will deepen as thoughts fade away. This will eventually reunite you with universal consciousness.
Bridge to Forever
A passage built as life began.
Thus, it was there as you were born.
There is a bridge and you are the builder.
Life is the way.
Conscious awareness allows you to cross over.
But, how? This is your choice.
The scenery may be bright or grey with each step.
However, what you experience is your choice.
You travel this bridge each day and night.
The sun, the sky and the stars are there for you to see.
Then on other days it rains and it pours.
However, beyond the bridge is more.
Yes, you may journey on this overpass.
But how to travel upon it?
Will there be hope or fear as you go your way?
Furthermore, there will be people you meet.
Likewise, there are things to do.
Your every step decides the next.
Are you aware and do you care?
You are the builder so awaken and realize.
Forever is more than today and tomorrow.
It is now and has always been now.
This is the sanctuary of life.
It is not a goal or a dream.
It is you… now… so live and be alive.
