If you want to live in the light and grace, then its all about Yes. But saying yes to the internal movements of you! Which means much less yes to the external movements of the world….
Otherwise you are resisting yourself. That is a huge barrier, a big armoring blocking out your light. Blocking your awareness. Blocking your right action. Blocking your true freedom.
But after so many years of self repression, what is it to hear those internal movements? what is it to speak and stand in them? What is it to actually heal the deep wounds that are there?
Primarily its awareness, noticing you. Its a willingness to hear your own heart.
Secondarily its using that awareness to heal your wounding. Understanding that none of us are without those wounds. Those wounds are barriers to the light, they are the armoring that blocks out your truth.
Thirdly its learning to speak the words that express you… We have to learn how to speak, how to speak so that our words reflect our heart. We can’t underestimate the value and importance of this.
Finally its actually talking a stand. Integrity. Standing in the position that expresses your right action.
That is the pathway towards living the awareness, living the being of light that you are. Embodying the truth that we all are.
There is no magic bliss moment that suddenly in a flash of brightness this process magically aligns, and you are fully embodied in truth, and magically all your wounding has healed. No magic that suddenly all the communication you need springs forth, and you utter words of truth and only truth. And also suddenly, magically, you stand in right action. That crazy illusion that gets held up as “ENLIGHTENMENT”, sadly is not at all what happens, ever….not to the Buddha, not to Adayashanti, not to Jesus, not to Byron Katie, or Eckhart…nope, it doesn’t work like that.
We can suddenly in a moment glimpse or even become this silence of our true self, and the veils drop. Or a moment can arrive and it seems for a short “honeymoon” period to
be simple. But it will end and this pathway will need to be walked. After enlightenment we still need to heal. And you don’t need to have this glimpse or great dissolve, or honeymoon of bliss, because eventually walking this pathway, all the veils drop anyway.
The bliss, the light, the taste of God, is right here, in your heart now. You just need to hear it, heal the armoring that blocks it, communicate it, stand in it, and be it.
There is nowhere to go, there is only an undoing….so your authentic light and freedom, the bliss of your true nature can emerge.
If you want to learn more about how to do this, you may find one of Kiran’s classes helpful…
And so it goes that we are ever unfolding into ourselves, into our evolution, into our future. We are ever expanding, regardless of being enlightened…
Lately I have been curious about little similarities between science and spirituality. Maybe it’s the lineup of science/spirituality conferences that populate Northern California or my…
