Hi Good morning,
Where are we?
Well here of course
And are we really here?
Fully, wholly, holy?
with all of our attention and presence?
Or are there some pieces missing?
not yet included?
Hanging outside our conscious awareness?
Buried themselves as a tension in the guts,
an ache in the back
or a numbness, a deadening in parts of our anatomy.
Whether physical or psychological.
Better not to feel?
Or shall we allow them in this time?
Do we hear them knocking on our doors?
When at last we can include them into our existence,
feel their pain of rejection and hear their stories
we might discover riches we did not know existed.

Who and what we are is This.
There is only the Divine.
There is only This.
And in This and as This
everything dances and moves.
How could it be otherwise?
( Even the separation and suffering
is the Divine feeling and experiencing
Itself through the body mind organisms
we have called ourselves. )
This is the case wether we are perceiving this or not.
If we have the intuition that this is True,
if something inside of us is resonating to these words,
it might be time to start looking at everything that
is blocking this perception.
What is it in us that is going against what
we somewhere know to be true?
What are the beliefs and convictions
which make us believe otherwise?
Question everything which blocks or doubts
the truth of our own being.
Stop at nothing.
Find out what remains when everything else
has fallen away.
p.s. Write me a postcard when you do.. :-)

What we are is unchanging, effortless and everpresent.
And in this and as this, always changing appearances come and go.
If there is no identification with neither the unchanging condition
nor with the appearances, there will be no preference for
either this or that.
There is the tendency after initial awakening to identify again,
this time with: 'We are only THIS'.
Usually this is a phase.
Here is where the concepts:
"There is no person, there is nothing you can do"
find their origin.
This is again a duality, as appearances are taken as something different from the Absolute.
This subtle identification can have big consequences
as it often translates itself as negation of emotions, rejection of the body and mind and consequently the unwillingness to look at the conditioning connected with this.
The result can be suppressed emotions, projections, and psychological hangups many people prefer to pretend they have gone beyond.
The ND world knows some teachers who carry issues they do not want to know about, as it does not conform with their conviction of what awakening is.
If we have the fortune to go through this phase, and do not keep our station here, we as it were step out of what we can call the 'hanging out in the Transcendence'.
Then there seems to be an initial phase of humility,
of surrendering this vastness,
a willingness to take on again the humanity we all carry and offer this as well as fuel for the fire of self inquiry.
All and everything want to feel, and be the freedom of limitations.
The knots and nooks in our system are unwinding in the
relaxation of surrender to what is.
When there is no identification anymore
there is simply what is happening.
Simply everything that appears and is.
