    “The phenomenal content of life is arising within us, not separate to/from us, just as the wave is part of the ocean. But we are also beyond or prior to this content, as the substrate of it. Can we see that we both transcend the phenomenal content and yet include it too?”

    You Are Love

    Love feels like the greatest risk
    but is in fact the greatest reward,
    because love itself IS the reward.

    Love cannot be taken away from you,
    only the seeming objects of love can come and go.

    But love is the SUBJECT,
    YOU are the subject.
    YOU. ARE. LOVE.

    So let love flow.
    Let it not be about the object.
    Let love be about YOU,
    that tender expression of love that you are.

    Let yourself BE with and as love itself.

    Let yourself open and flower to your own love,
    even when there is fear there too.
    Let yourself keep opening and opening to yourself,
    so that you may see that love is just the flow of life,
    the flow of Self back to the Self.

    “When something once unseen and in the shadows of consciousness is seen through and brought into the light so wholly, then we will find that it is integrated and moved through so entirely that it leaves barely a whisper of a taste…

    This is when we know we are free.

    This is when we no longer have to fear even our darkest and most seemingly undesirable aspects coming up into the light of consciousness.

    This is when we can finally include it all.

    This is love.”

    “It’s all Grace. There is Grace even in our most egregious ‘human failings’. This too shows us something, not for our own comfort by for our growth, for our realisation. For our recognition that then blossoms out of the ashes of seen through falsities.”

    Keep Quiet; The Seeing Is the Doing

    Keep quiet, let the mind flail around and burn itself out with exhaustion… you don’t need to go to war with life, trying to subdue and submit it to some image of how it ‘should be’. Eventually you’ll come to recognise the constant ground in all of this is you, awareness you. Awareness that holds within it all the multitudes and flavours of experiencing, effortlessly without tire. Keep quiet and this shall be known, the seeing is the only doing necessary, all else that you find yourselves doing is in support of that… every practice, every book, every teaching, every circumstance that life throws at you, every dead-end, every challenging relationship, every ‘wrong’ turn… all in support of life showing you the nature of life, showing the groundless ground of Being – Awareness. Consciousness. Self.

    Awakening is not transactional, it’s not a goal to achieve, it’s a calling of grace in our heart that is listened to. It’s a sinking in to our nature, our birth right. It’s a letting go and a surrender to the present moment and all that that is. So as such, it’s a gift.

    How can it be possible to contain all of these seeming contradictions and paradoxes?

    Yet it is very much possible, as we all are the living example of this. The living example that the Self has room for it all. While the mind cannot fathom this… the heart sinks into the truth of it.

    Am I Enough?

    It’s hard to believe that we just have to be ourself and that is enough. It’s enough to include all that we are and exclude none of it. Most of us feel that life requires the opposite of this, and so to have that recognition “that I am enough” feels like a miracle, a miracle that we doubt all too easily as not being true. But it is it nonetheless, that we get to be who we are, entirely ourself, no bells or whistles and this is enough, this is it. It’s a wonderful realisation because at the end of the day that’s all we’ve got anyway. When we’ve been stripped of all ideas and ideals of everything we think we ‘should’ be and left naked standing here as we actually are.

    We never think that which we are could be loved, or maybe even liked if we show the entirety of ourself. We feel that for sure we have to work very hard to not be this or that part of ourself. But life teaches us that if you learn to love all of YOURSELF, you are free. And in that freedom, those that gather around you, will love you for you, not a mirage or a straight jacket that you have to maintain.

    This is true relating, this is true and unconditional love. The ability for you to be you and them to be them, life to be life. It’s not some grand gesture of love, but the loving acceptance and non judgement of the full expression of life as lived through you.

    Does this mean we don’t grow or ‘improve’, nurturing those best sides of ourself? No. It means that our best sides of ourself, our love, our compassion, our acceptance, our understanding give room and space for it all too. And in this we become more than just those parts we call our worst aspects. In this we realise that we are so much more, we realise that these aspects pale in comparison to the ground that we are, the love that we are.

    That sense of wrongness in you…
    Give this to the heart.
     
    The heart will have room
    for even the most
    pernicious sense of wrongness.
     
    The mind will chatter away
    saying there’s a need to act on it, fix it
    but the heart…
    the heart can just let
    that sense of wrongness be there,
    holding space for it…
    giving love to it even,
    understand it’s misunderstanding.
     
    The heart has compassion and space
    for even the worst sense of wrongness.
