In Between

The space in between

the mundane and

creative manifestation

lies a simple

and ordinary truth.

It Could Be the Season of Truth – It’s up to you

A few quotes for today, to help promote that season.

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 

John 8:32

“Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.”

Lau Tzu ~ Tao Te Ching

“Enlightenment means waking up to what you truly are and then being that.”

 Adyashanti

“Do it.  Open your eyes.  The truth is right there.  You ARE it.  Everything is it.  It’s that simple.”

Season of Truth


The Filter of the Mind

Every thought is a filter.  Every thought you have is judging, contemplating, evaluating, and filtering your experience.  Every single one.  What happens when you let yourself experience a moment without having a thought about it?  No opinion, no judgement, no deciding if it’s good or bad, no conditions on the moment, what-so-ever?  What happens? 

Open up to the experience just as it is, without the filter, and watch your life unfold in effortless beauty.


Blank

I was sitting at the computer today, staring at a blank screen, wondering what would come to me to write about today.  Then I realized, the blank screen says it all.  That’s it.  Enlightenment made simple.  Emptiness right before our eyes.

 


Nope

Nope.  Unless you’ve already seen it, you have no idea what enlightenment means or what it is.  Whatever you think it is, you are wrong, so let it go. 

See it for yourself.  BE it for yourself…then try and explain it and see if you know what it is. 

Perhaps we can laugh about it together while we swing.


Surrounded

Like a fish swimming in the ocean looking for the water, what you are seeking is everywhere and is everything.  You are surrounded.  Stop searching, be still, see.


Right Here

The path to enlightenment is right here, right where you are.  No need to go anywhere.  No need to figure out where to go next.  Let go and you will be led.  That is grace.
