Awaken To Your True SELF
Awareness is our true nature. We are not who, or what we think we are. We are that which witnesses the experience of living on the planet.
In truth we are Pure Light, and we are also one with the All That Is. In our natural state we have no body.. nor do we have any sense of our current self as we know it.
YOU ARE LIVING IN THE BODY OF GOD IN CREATION AT THIS VERY MOMENT
This is what is true: God is within each and every one of us, and we are within God. There is no ‘other’ and there is no separation.. There is ONLY Oneness. We are the ONE appearing as many.
“KNOW YE NOT THAT YE ARE GODS?”
Who and what we are is part of what we call God or Creator. We are Spiritual Beings and we are having an experience of being human. In the deepest sense, we are all Christs or Buddhas but we have not yet come to the realization of that.
Our lives are a continual process of becoming; which in it’s essence is a spiritual unfoldment of coming to know who and what we are. When we understand that this is the purpose of our being here and what it entails, we can assist in our own process of Awakening and more easily open to our True Beingness and live the life we were intended to live.
Most spiritual “seekers” believe that they have to get to somewhere in order to become Consciousness, or Awakened. But nothing could be further from the truth.
The truth is there’s nowhere to get TO. Everything that is real is right here in the Now Moment. It is both inside of you and all around you. All that’s needed is for us to learn how to open ourselves up to what is already here.
“…THE KINGDOM IS INSIDE OF YOU, AND IT IS OUTSIDE OF YOU”
Jesus – The Gospel of Thomas
All that is required for us to begin to Awaken Spiritually to the Truth is that we become Present in the Now Moment and simply watch ourselves in our interactions with others. Nothing is hidden.. it’s all right there in plain sight if we know how to look. We tend to look outside of ourselves for answers, when the answers lie within.
Many of us on the spiritual path want to change the world, and rightly so because it needs to be changed. But in order to affect permanent change in the collective consciousness of humanity, we must change ourselves. We are Love, Light, Peace and Joy. This is our nature. As Shantideva put it:
“YOU ARE NOT HERE TO CHANGE THE WORLD, THE WORLD IS HERE TO CHANGE YOU.”
Shantideva – 8th Century Buddhist Scholar and Mystic
Truer words have rarely been spoken. Our mind/ego is hard wired from thousands of years of believing that we are alone and having to protect us in order to insure our survival, but this only became necessary because we forgot who and what we are at the core of our being. When we access our deeper inner nature however, we become able to connect to our hearts and live from Present Moment Awareness, and when we do that, what is already here WILL reveal itself to us in time. We already are in the Body of God In Creation. We just don’t know it. But Life wants us to know it.
THE INFINITE INTELLIGENCE THAT CREATED US, AND IS US, WANTS US TO AWAKEN
In 2006 I experienced an opening into Oneness and what I call “The Voice” came to me and It said
“It was never intended to be this way, it is My Will that you know who and what you are, and that you create your lives in Joy.”
Immediately afterward I was returned to my “normal” state of consciousness and I realized that what the Divine was saying was that we are all here to become Living Conscious beings, and that we are creators of our own reality.
That brief statement also made me realize why life is the way that it is. We have forgotten that we are Divine Light and that we are aspects of God in Creation. We are identified with our mind/ego and our stories and we have lost our way, but it was never intended by the Divine for things to be this way.
When I realized what I was being told was the reason for all of the suffering on the planet today, I knew the answer to the problems and issues we experience in our lives and in the world lay in reclaiming what we originally lost.. the direct experience of our Divinity. I also realized that this is why we are all seeking love and happiness. It’s our true nature and and deep within we remember that, but we’ve separated ourselves from it because our focus has been on the world. But the world is an illusion.
The good news is we can find our way home by first recognizing that we are all prisoners of the mind, and then becoming Present in the NOW and living from our hearts in Conscious Awareness. As the Witness, we are able to see our mind/ego in real time during events that happen in our lives, and in our interactions with others, and we become aware of the energy of our bodies and can feel what is happening when we are in the presence of others as well.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD
In our bringing Awareness to ourselves about how our mind (or bio computer as I call it) is programmed, we are able to see our stories and false beliefs in real time, and any emotional pain and baggage that we may be holding on to will eventually come up as well and we will feel it. When we are able to do that and allow healing to begin, not only do we heal the past wounds in ourselves, but we also begin to heal the Collective Consciousness of all mankind.
By being Present and observing ourselves and our world, over time That Which IS, will reveal itself to us. Nothing will remain hidden to the true seeker. Life wants to Awaken itself, and it is already present in the Now and will grace us with a gradual spiritual awakening and experiences of the Truth of Life.. perhaps several of them will come over time as they continue to do with me. For some people it will also happen spontaneously and we will be forever changed on may levels, but this is relatively rare.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that if we have an awakening experience that we will suddenly become firmly grounded in the experience either, or that our stories and issues will miraculously disappear. Sometimes they do, but the most important thing is to realize that the Divine wants to work in partnership with us, and the more participate in that by meditating and bringing ourselves into the present moment and being the Witness, the faster we can progress. And the more we truly want it the faster it can happen as well. Our sincere desire draws it to us.
“GOD CANNOT REFUSE A SINCERE HEART”
Paramahansa Yogananda – Autobiography of a Yogi
Life is offering us a magnificent opportunity to Awaken by first asking, and then meditating and becoming aware of our stories and beliefs by paying attention to what we think and say on a daily basis. When we do this, Life will often “miraculously” make the pattern(s) disappear, and gradual (and sometimes sudden) Awakenings will happen.
Doing Inner Work, which is bringing yourself Present in your breathing body and connecting with your heart and your mind, and with a strong desire to know and experience the Truth of your true Being-ness, will bring it about and it will eventually happen.
When and where it does are in the domain of Grace, but I know from experience that if we want it badly enough and are willing to do the work required of us, God will meet us more than half way.
And in the process we begin to discover that it creates a profoundly better life.
Anyone can become liberated from control of the mind by engaging in a fearless inquiry into the nature of your mind and your beliefs, what I call “how you’re wired up”. In doing this, you will find that you are not your stories, your beliefs or judgements. And you learn that your past conditioning does not define you. It is not who you are.
You can know and experience that you are an
embodiment of God in creation.
As I said previously, we are actually Divine beings who are having an experience of being human, and, the more Present we become in the Now Moment, and the more free of limiting beliefs we become, the more likely it is that we will have an experience of ourselves as the Divine beings we are.
So I invite you right now to just stop.. right here and right now in this moment choose to step out of the mind and Be Present. What you are is already here, and it’s inviting you home. Invite it in. When the beliefs that prevent Life from flowing through us are resolved, wonderful things will begin to happen. We no longer have to struggle because we begin to trust in the Divine and understand that there is a natural rhythm and flow to the world, and then life becomes easy and effortless. Our feelings of fear and angst and our ego’s driving need to struggle to survive begin to fall away.
You also begin to sense from the deepest part of your being, that you are part of God in Creation, and in time you come to FEEL the Divine Presence within you. You also begin to understand that you are the only one creating your reality, and that the Universe responds to your every thought and emotion. It creates the world from the energy emanating from your thoughts and emotions, and everyone else’s as well. And you will also begin to sense and feel that you, and the entire planet and universe is loved and cared for far beyond your comprehension.
They way home is the removal of what is false. The obstructions within us are are part of our conscious and subconscious programming, and they must be rewired. When this happens, a beautiful Life begins to arise as if by magic, because the Divine is then able to work through us.
Things we need come into our experience because it is necessary for our Being in the world, or just because it’s what we want to experience. When we are aligned with God to that extent, we become able to fulfill our purpose because we are in alignment with our soul’s purpose in the plan.
“TRULY I TELL YOU, IF ANYONE SAYS TO THIS MOUNTAIN, ‘GO THROW YOURSELF INTO THE SEA’ AND DOES NOT DOUBT IN THEIR HEART BUT BELIEVES THAT WHAT THEY SAY WILL HAPPEN, IT WILL BE DONE FOR THEM.”
And the same is true for Spiritual Awakening.
