After thought #2

Stillness is the birthplace of all happiness ~ the womb of all creation; but then again, it’s also the same birthplace of all un-happiness.  It’s the same birthplace of “the high” and “the low”, “the good” and “the bad”, “the right” and “the wrong”, “the trust” and “the un-trust”, “the pure” and “the impure”, “the holy” and “the un-holy”. 

The “anger”, the “confusion”, and the “fear” are just as sacred as the “joy”, the “clarity” and the “courage”. 

How do you reconcile these differences?

Do we need to reconcile these differences?

No “You” can ever reconcile these differences; it’s only a “you” that will see these polarities as part of a conventional way of thinking, being, having and doing.

If you’re “standing” in silence, no reconciliation is needed; the reconcilers, reconciling and reconcilable are one. 

In fact, there is no reconciled, there is no un-reconciled.

In fact there is no One…

C   Trust  yourSelf…

 

It is only at the level of the mind that we truly lose touch with the essence of Who We Are.  At some point and to various degrees, most of us begin to believe in the illusion of our separateness as part of our early conditioning.  Our imagined Isolation from our wholeness and perfection leads to distraction, we start to believe in our imperfection, we allow our attention to focus and dwell on “this” and “that”. 

 

Trust is replaced by the illusion of control, our innocence is replaced by a pandemic fear as we place more and more of our faith in a personal, subjective “I”, in things external that are transient and unreal.  We learn to pay more attention to what is going on outside ourselves rather than developing an awareness of our relationship to the wisdom within us.   

 

The quality of our life is determined by the quality of the relationship we have to the Self.  It takes great courage and trust to journey within.  It’s the kind of trust that cannot be learned or earned; it must be granted to each and every moment of our day to day existence, to the Self, to others, to our life, to our dreams.

 

It is a way of being in the world that is not common, a rarity and authenticity that is fresh and always new.  As we learn to give up our dependency on the “I” mind, we experience a renewed zest for life, in our choices and in the visions we have for our life.  We begin to recognize the value and truth of living life based on the strength of our inner relationship. Trust becomes our compass that leads us home to the Self within.  We give up the ordinary and we begin experiencing and living the extraordinary.

 

Q.   What way would you live your life if you granted complete trust to the moment?

O   Be open to having your life orchestrated not directed…

 

We are taught from birth that life is about cause and effect.  We are conditioned to believe that we are separate, individual entities living in a Universe that exists independently from us.  We are encouraged to master skills that allow us to operate in this perceived “cause/effect” relationship in order to survive.  We are told that in order to survive we will need to be the fittest, richest, most powerful, smartest or best looking; we are told size matters.  When we cannot meet any or all of these requirements we are tempted to force and manipulate the system in some way.  Conventional reality always provides conventional, limited results.

 

We were born to live extraordinary lives.  We were born to express the infinite possibilities of our potential, into a world of finite form and phenomena.  We do not direct life, nor do we orchestrate life itself.  Life orchestrates “us” at the subtlest level as the “creative” process.  To engage this process consciously, is to allow our life to be directed and orchestrated from the subtlest level.  Participation, invites extraordinary possibility into our experience.  The expression and elevation of Synchronicity in our life is the advent of a life that is being consciously orchestrated at the subtlest level.  When we listen to our Self; when we open too and allow our Self, when we cultivate Self awareness, the unconventional finds home in the conventional.
