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 in the Now.. and it’s 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.
That brief statement also made me realize why life is the way that it is. We have forgotten that we are Beings of Light and that we are aspects of God in Creation. We have become so identified with our mind/ego and our stories that we have lost our way, but it was never intended by Being 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 becoming Present in the NOW and living from our hearts in Conscious Awareness. As the Witness, we are able to see our ego in real time during the events that happen in our lives, and in our interactions with others.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD
In bringing Awareness to us about how our bio computer 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 as well because we will feel it. And when we do that, we heal the past wounds both in ourselves and in the Collective Consciousness of all of mankind.
In being Present and observing, over time that Which IS, will reveal itself. Nothing will remain hidden. Life wants to Awaken itself, and it is already present in the Now, and it will grace us with a gradual spiritual awakening and an experience of Truth.. or perhaps several of them over time. Sometimes it will also happen spontaneously, although this is relatively rare.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that if we we will suddenly become firmly grounded in the experience either, or that our stories and issues will miraculously disappear. Sometimes they do, but the important thing to realize is that Life wants to work in partnership with us, and the more we hand over the reins the faster can progress. And the more we truly want it the faster it can happen. Our sincere desire draws it to us.
“GOD CANNOT REFUSE A SINCERE HEART”
Paramahansa Yogananda – Autobiography of a Yogi
Life itself offers us a magnificent opportunity for Awakening by asking, meditating, and becoming aware of our stories and beliefs by paying attention to what we think and say on a continual basis. Often when we do this, Life will “miraculously” make the pattern(s) disappear, and gradual, or sometimes sudden Awakenings 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, it will 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 Light 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. Stop all seeking, and just Be Present. What you are is already here, inviting you home. Invite it in. When the beliefs that prevent Life from flowing through us are resolved, wonderful things begin to happen. You no longer have to struggle and life becomes easy and effortless. Your feelings of fear and angst and your ego’s driving need to struggle to survive begin to fall away.
You begin to feel and 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, and It creates the world from the energy emanating from your thoughts and emotions, and everyone else’s as well. And you also begin to sense and feel that you, and the entire planet and universe is loved and cared for far beyond your comprehension.
Once the obstructions within us are removed, Life begins to just happen, as if by magic, because the Divine is able to work through us. Things we need come into our experience because it is necessary for our Being in the world. 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.
