My passion this week has as usual been truth, and more specifically, alignment with truth. I have been contemplating what it really takes to wake up to and embody our truest nature in this lifetime. I have come up with the ingredients which I believe are essential. Here they are:-
1. Alignment with an avatar/God-realised/fully liberated being. I cannot stress the importance of this enough. Unless one has a pure reflection of truth, it is difficult (perhaps even impossible) to get in touch with that within oneself, in a deep enough way that it really takes over.
2. Being quietness. Unless we come to experience what it is we are seeking, there is really no possibility of embodying it. Sounds obvious; but I have seen many people do anything possible to avoid quietness, whilst paying lip service to a desire for awakening.
3. Meeting your stuff. Facing your humanness is a vital aspect of the aspiration to wake up, and one which is extremely challenging for many people (probably all people). Meeting issues as they arise in life (instead of denying/avoiding them) provides an opportunity for the lived experience of oneness to flower and blossom fully.
4. Clearing your stuff. This is a much underrated facet of waking up to and embodying truth. Experience has shown me that there is a small minority of people born with little conditioning and who TRULY don’t need to dissolve any of it in order for awakeness to be realised. To really feel the sun on your skin, the clouds must clear away.
Well, I think that’s enough for one day! Please do give me feedback on these ingredients and your experience of them, as I would be fascinated to hear it. Enjoy your weekend,
