“I honor the place in you where Spirit lives
I honor the place in you which is
of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace,
when you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
then we are One.”
Allowing ourselves to LIVE Kindness, Compassion, Caring, Loving, Sharing, Trusting, and Forgiving, is Truly the doorway to inner Peace and Fulfillment.
It seems to be such a common belief that Enlightenment is something that comes and then all that is undesirable falls away.
This illusion of one moment occurring and changing everything in us forever is widespread in our human belief systems.
Each moment we have a choice.
In each and every circumstance we have a choice.
In every joy and in every disappointment we have a choice.
The choice to see the truth and experience that which is before us as simplyexperience
or to give way to
the thoughts and judgements
of our minds that cloud our ability to see the gift in every situation we find ourselves in.
This is a moment to moment practice of presence.
(as Eckhart Tolle would say “Be here NOW”, some call this Christ Consciousness, Heart Intelligence, God awareness, The state of Buddha and so on)
A choice that is made in this moment and each and every moment to follow.
As we discipline ourselves to choose Awareness in our daily lives, then the habits of being swept up in the illusionary thoughts of our minds begins to fall away.
Life becomes more vivid, more alive, full of beauty, opportunity, joy and profound peace.
Resistance begins to fall away and the seeming problems we were facing in our lives lose their power over us, and begin to disappear from our realities.
Not because they no longer exist, but because we have shifted our awareness of them. We no longer give them our attention in the same way.
When we give our focus to them without awareness, they manifest and become our experience of reality.
With awareness they become opportunities rather than problems, offering us the practice of seeing and enjoying the silver lining.
We are then able to receive the gifts of them, the teachings that allow us to move more deeply into surrender, Into Grace.
OUR SEEMING PROBLEMS THEN BRING US CLOSER TO GOD, To the Peace within.
Fear, doubt, lack and limitation can not exist where presence lives.
They are seen and felt and then revealed as thoughts that do not currently exist anywhere except in our minds.
In this realization we are able to see that they are not our reality, only our perception of reality.
When this is realized then we are able to see that our reality is able to be whatever we choose it be, by choosing our thoughts consciously and wisely.
And even deeper realization is choosing presence to prevail
so that we move from believing or even choosing our thoughts to witnessing them and then choosing to
continue to look and see
what exists beyond them.
This is Reality.
This is the truth of who we are and all of creation IS.
This is where the window of Enlightenment opens.
This is where we realize that all of our needs are met, and always have been met.
Nothing can be taken from us in this state of awareness because there is nothing that we are not. We realize we are all of it;
That ALL lives within us,
and is born from bathing within
and bringing forth from within.
Nothing is created outside of us.
We have had it backwards all along.
This is why meditation is known as the key to Awakening.
Being witness to our thoughts and at the same time opening our awareness to listen and discover
that which is underneath or beyond our thoughts offers us the realization that we have been perceiving reality all along as something other than what it is and has been each moment.
Our inner knowing is found here. This is where all answers are found and we are simply and powerfully FREED from our self-created imprisonment of fear, doubt, lack and limitation.
We are limitless,
we are free,
we are all we desire,
we already have everything we need,
we are humble in the most profound power available to us,
That which we are!
“WE are created in the image and likeness of GOD.”
Not an almighty God that is judging and condemning, But the very Essence of all that exists, the Powerful presence that all is created from and returns to.
It does not matter which name or label we give it, It can not be denied scientifically nor can we deny it once we have tasted the powerful sweetness of it.
As each of us allow ourselves to become aware of and yield to this presence, we become our God Selves.
We become of Love, of Truth, of Light, of Peace.
We begin to embody Kindness, Peace, Caring, Loving, Sharing, Trusting, and Forgiveness.
Life becomes Beautiful, Supportive;
Heaven (right here, right NOW) on Earth.
What exciting times we are living in as so many of us across the planet are becoming aware of and choosing this.
