"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light, I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night"
Wide open awareness. It starts here. Nothing needs to be further clarified or explained. We open, we join, we release.
The discovery of opening to awareness versus falling into judgment is a continual process and everyday practice. Often I don't get it, and am amazed how easy it is to react in such a way, but quickly I learn, that in judgment, I separate, and further alienate my True self, my True nature.
Good, bad, left, right, only further the drama that essentially takes us out of our own inner radiance. Can I see? Can I just be? Do I need to be pushed and pulled to and fro? Can I stand in a place of total acceptance, not needing to add or subtract?
Interesting questions to ask ... Realness, the place where being and existing in this world unite. Where I live in my genuineness, and not feel sorry for it, even if it looks a bit strange to others, I can be who I am.
This supposed inner quest I'm on never ceases to amaze and/or push my limits. One thing I am discovering is, just what I need to hear, and when, is always offered up to me, from moment to moment.
I love this following excerpt ...
You don't gather knowledge when you are getting to know yourself; you lose it. Many of your firmest ideas go out the window. You may feel naked, vulnerable, threatened, argumentative, angry. But if you are really looking for the truth and not for some personal vindication you will start to discover you have access to the same source of truth as the wisest teachers who ever lived.
Truth is of the moment, never of the man. And 'man' as I use the word includes all of us, men, women and children.
It is a little known fact that truth cannot be memorized. Truth has to be discovered now, from moment to moment. It is always fresh, always new, always there for the still, innocent mind that has experienced life without needing to hold on to what has gone before.
