One and the same…
Radical Spirituality is not interested in creating more joy, more compassion, more peace or even more love in this world.
Radical Spirituality recognizes first, that the joy and sadness, the love and hate, the compassion and the indifference, the war and the peace, arise and subside in the same space of consciousness; they come and they go in the same space.
Radical Spirituality is not at all interested in creating more happiness, health or prosperity for self or for others. Radical Spirituality recognizes the joy and sadness, the love and hate, the compassion and indifference, the war and the peace, arise and subside as an expression of the One divine, Being.
What is seen is that the seeker herself and what is sought are one and the same.
What is seen is that happiness, health and prosperity can only be the boo bee prize in so called spirituality.
What is seen is that the sadness, sickness and lack are equally as valid as the happiness, health and prosperity.
What is seen is that all circumstances within life are an expression of the co-existence of opposites.
While there will always be preferences and attachments, circumstances and situations that mirror a world of opposites, at the end of the day, it’s all one and the same.
Coming and going are one and the same.
Existence and non existence are one and the same.
Arising and subsiding are one and the same.
Unity and duality are one and the same.
Better said; there can be no coming and going, existence or non existence, arising and subsiding or unity and duality.
To be aware of and notice the space in which all this occurs is more valuable than the content of what occurs or does not occur.
To be grounded as awareness or anchored too the background of Being that is the birthplace of all foreground phenomena is true measurement of inner wisdom or so called spirituality.
To be aware of the One who is aware is the gift and portal to Being.
The gift was never in achievement, gain or merit; the defined loss never in the lack of what appears to be absent.
What’s missing; what’s not so obvious is the one who is indifferent to the illusion of the joy and sadness, the one who witnesses the love and hate, the gain and loss.
What’s not so obvious is the space in which all this happens or not.
What appears to be missing is the One who can be free from this game we call life.
The One who witnesses is the One who is free. The One who is aware is the One who is beyond the up and down, the right and wrong, the in and out.
Better said, the One who witnesses; the One who is aware of the aware-er is the One who cannot be bound by the idea of “free” or “not free”; for the idea of “freedom” and “bondage”, like the ideas of “up” and “down”, “right” and “wrong” and “in” and “out” are One and the same…
