A SMALL GOLDEN LIGHT!

small-light

I hope that in the future they invent a small golden light that follows you everywhere and when something is about to end, it shines brightly so you know it’s about to end.
And if you’re never going to see someone again, it’ll shine brightly and both of you can be polite and say, “It was nice to have you in my life while I did, good luck with everything that happens after now.”
And maybe if you’re never going to eat at the same restaurant again, it’ll shine and you can order everything off the menu you’ve never tried. Maybe, if someone’s about to buy your car, the light will shine and you can take it for one last spin. Maybe, if you’re with a group of friends who’ll never be together again, all your lights will shine at the same time and you’ll know, and then you can hold each other and whisper, “This was so good. Oh my God, this was so good.”

~ Iain Thomas, “I Wrote This For You”

Remembering who we are!

181076_515321341852553_535138008_n

What is to be remembered here is that the silence that is alluded here is the most natural thing. In fact it is the very core of our ever-present, eternal being. All sounds appear from and disappear within silence. These appearances are fleeting and temporal but what they appear in and to never changes! Unfortunately due to the years and years of conditioning and fascination for things that are perceived by the senses these appearances are accepted as the reality. The mind also has a role to play in making the real, unreal and the unreal, real. If we look deeply we realize that its not the appearances and forms that are real but the silence from which they emanate. But we can never find silence, which is our true self, because it is transparent and empty. Hence we imagine that we are a cluster of thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions. With that imagination an illusory self made out of thoughts, feelings and sensations comes into apparent existence. When this apparent self is unhappy it seeks happiness in conventional objects like, relationships, activities and so on. When these fail it seeks it in unconventional activities like meditation and so on. Through meditation we attempt to silence the mind which is a tremendously difficult task. It brings about temporary relief but we do not succeed in getting what we want – lasting, undisturbed peace. Ironically it is the most easiest thing in the world, easier than breathing as it does not require the mind or any particular set of circumstances. Silence is nothing other than the aware presence that is unchanging and everpresent. In otherwords just be as you are. Realizing our true selves as this silent aware presence frees us from the need for any particular set of thoughts, feelings or sensations to experience peace. This silence is who we really are and brings us the peace that transcends all circumstance and is infinite and eternal. Namaste!

Opening to Love

spiritualawaking1

The most powerful force in the universe is Love. It is also our natural state of being. Our relationship to the world and how the world relates to us is based totally on how we experience ourselves. In fact the world we experience is an accurate reflection of our consciousness. The ability to unconditionally love and free ourselves from the unloving conditioning around us enables us to create more successful, rewarding, enriching and harmonious loving relationships. Discovering that love is what or who we are helps us to tap the power of love for good in our lives.

We need to see that love is ever present and inherent in our being. By understanding this we stop looking for love in the wrong place. The right place to look for it is the place in us that is prior to the mind, prior too the feelings. Love is the ever present awareness in which everything appears and disappears. To take our stand there, to know what we always are, is to know true love.

We seek love because we are unaware that we are the love that we long for. It is the longing that prevents us from seeing it. Once longing is dissolved in understanding we are able to see that we are the very thing we are looking for! This presence that we are and which we share with everyone is what is truly lovable. When we experience ourselves as the open, welcoming, ever present loving Presence our mind and body realign themselves to this experience. All the unlovable awkward characteristics that seem to thwart love get ironed out by love itself, and the mind and body are slowly refashioned into a shape that is in line with love. We then find ourselves expressing and celebrating this love in our relationships.

Namaste!

When you introspect you will find that no matter what the contents of your mind, the most basic `I’ is something different. Every time you try to observe the `I’ it takes a jump back with you, remaining out of sight.
