We are all Enlightened Beings in disguise. Every being is born with full access to the highest peak of truth, love and consciousness. If you look into a baby’s eyes you will see it. The sparkle of their pure uncluttered untainted awareness is blazing there.
You can see that there is no sense of time, rigid beliefs, or systems of controlling the world in their mind. There is just pure presence and awareness. They are a naturally in love with life, without even trying their Enlightened Nature shines through. This consciousness is in all of us for at one time we were all once a baby.
“All beings are from the very beginning Buddhas.” ~ Hakuin
If our Enlightened Nature is already here now, complete and whole in itself, why isn’t the entire world filled with an abundance of Enlightened Beings? There is one little thing in the way called the “ego”. The mind gets identified with certain desires, thinking it HAS to have these things in order to be happy.
The attachment to desire gets in the way and obscures this light of pure being.
When there is too much attachment or resistance to anything in life, it causes the mind to malfunction and lose contact with its naturally enlightened perspective on reality. What it needs is to relax; rest and wait for the clarity to come pouring through.
The unenlightened mind is a lot like a fish in a fishbowl who is anxiously swimming around in circles, causing the water to spin and all the muck on the bottom to be stirred up distorting the clarity of the water. When the fish stops swimming and rests, it takes a while yet soon the muck settles back to the bottom of the bowl and the water becomes crystal clear.
If your health, relationships, money, work or love life seems to be spinning around in muck, you simply need to stop all movement, relax the mind and rest deep inside yourself again. In time your issue will resolve itself as the light of your own consciousness will clarify everything for you.
By bringing the mind to a complete halt, the illusions of your mind disappear and you naturally experience the infinite source inside you. Being still is the greatest secret to discovering Enlightenment.
When you are completely calm, still and unmoving, your mind becomes crystal clear.
You can only experience the loving, eternal, and divine aspects of your infinite Enlightened Nature. The heart opens and an unconditional love for all beings (including yourself) naturally begins pouring through you.
When the mind is uncluttered you can see the divine truth of who and what you truly are.
“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” ~Chang Tzu
The very instant you are empty of mind chatter, you can stop and take a good long look inside yourself. You can explore yourself, investigate your past, look into what you want to manifest in your future, and discover something quite amazing about your very nature. You realize that you are not this body, nor these thoughts, or anything you can imagine with your mind.
Who you really are goes beyond thinking, beyond concepts, and beyond the mind. You are an infinite and eternal soul that cannot be burned by fire or wet by water. You are this forever expanding consciousness that cannot be defined.
When you are in a state of pure being, completely free from the mind, you instantly start connecting with your inherent Enlightened Nature.
Suddenly, as if from out of nowhere, your true radiant self with all its positive life expanding qualities finds its way into your life. Your relationships become fun, easy and effortless and you think about what amazing gifts you have inside you to give back to the community.
The most simple blissful joyful sensations are naturally experienced in the most ordinary situations. By being silent quiet and still, you discover that you are ALREADY deeply connected to an Infinite source of goodness within.
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Every morning for the next week of your life I invite you to explore one thing. The very instant that you’ve awakened from your sleep, before you move your body or open your eyes, take these precious moments to turn your attention inwards and ask this one question.
Where is the source of thought coming from?
The question itself is the purpose of the exercise, it’s not necessary to find an answer. Just keep pointing your attention in the direction of where you feel or think the source of thought is coming from. Directing your intention inside yourself is the key to opening the great door to the beyond.
Before you wake up, just take a look inside you. Look deeper inside yourself before your mind starts to think about its agenda for the day. Simply investigate where the Source of thought is coming from, and if you can feel into it, relax into it and rest in the core of it.
This way you’ll tend to return to this place all throughout your day. Bring your whole heart and soul into this enquiry and if you get stuck then simply remain curious. Do not try to get anywhere, just remain in a state of curiosity and see what happens!
There is a hidden force behind your mind running this grand master show. This indivisible divine energy is very powerful when you connect with it, and when you find it you’ll be able to shape shift your life in any way you’d like it to be.
“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, and expect to grow spiritually. You are not living by human laws. Expect miracles and see them take place. Hold ever before you the thought of prosperity and abundance, and know that doing so sets in motion forces that will bring it into being.” ~Eileen Caddy
