So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters…
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters…
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know … Yeah heah!
A real master will not give you a window to look at the truth through, he will bring you out under the sky….
A real master… never shows you the path… he simply gives you the light and says: Now take the light and go into the darkness, this light will show your path.
To the man of realization … it is
indifferent whether the senses … are indrawn or turned without. What matters it to the sun whether the
clouds gather together or are dispersed?
Leave experience alone. Let it be what it is. If you want to start changing your experience you have to start changing the universe because the whole thing is interconnected.
I know little about things and people. I know only that I am, and that much you also know. We are equals.
My painbody and me
Eckart Tolle talks about the painbody and watching and developing awareness. I did this practice for years or maybe it seemed like years because it never seemed to make any difference, in fact I think this painbody is probably stronger now than when I started. For me the way he taught it created a duality between the witness and the painbody. Now it all seems like baloney as when true emptiness is experienced there is no thought. I am grateful for Osho and then Mooji for helping me to discover this emptiness. Eckart showed me the being I think he called it the inner body.
"Can I be the space" for this needs to become "I am the space for this" which really becomes "I am not / I am all" "I am this - and I am that - and I am neither"
Here there is an understanding of that and bliss is all around. But in ego/painbody land, physical ‘reality’, there is still a lot of confusion, fear and illness. I have isolated myself for a long time in order to avoid other egos and spiritual ego trappings. But I guess this is a trap in itself - which I believe I am ready to move (or be thrown) out of. I feel like that soft space of awareness is all I have, really the only thing I can count on :’( Haha the ego can make it sound like so much or so little depending upon its mood. But I guess that is the experience of it also.
I pray that all doubt is removed as to my true identity and to recognise ignorance and illusion wherever it hides. May I stop looking to others to recognise my own greatness and find I within. My I stop seeing other as other and outside as outside. This is why we are here to be torn apart only to reunite. The mind would like to make something better than that and it tries but all its efforts end up back in the mud. There is still hope for ‘something else’, ‘more than this’. But it is seen. This is called I am not enough by the one who can’t get enough. If it is believed the whole universe is shattered into a billion pieces only to be reassembled again in an instant by the eyes of the absolute.
It is seen as I write that this ego land exists precisely so our true nature can be experienced. As bliss can become a dumbed down experience when there is no pain to contrast it.
