The Home Coming
In a hundred years from now
I can envision humans looking back at the 21st Century
as 'The Great Remembering.'
It is my hope that this short video about Emma is in service to that.
Although we may call it by different names, we're all really seeking the same thing.
We're all just trying to get back Home to the permanent recognition of our natural state.
But how do we realize our natural state? Where do we 'look' for Home?
Gandhi said it well: "Each one has to find his peace from within. And for peace to be real it must be unaffected by outside circumstances."
When we take a walk in nature, fall in love, get a new job, pray or meditate and have a full sense of well-being, many of us mistake the event or object as the cause of peace. We believe that peace is based on certain conditions. This misunderstanding sets into motion a cycle of trying to find our permanent Home within those fluctuating or temporary conditions....all of which just simply does not work.
But if peace is not based on conditions why then did we sense peace during those particular conditions?
What if during all those times of peace it is not that peace is caused by anything
but it is our openness to life in this moment that allows the sensing of what always is -
our natural state?
When we take a walk in nature or get a new job and sense peace we are fully open to life directly.
There are no filtering thoughts or beliefs getting in the way.
We are open - resisting nothing.
We are actually sensing our natural state of well-being - uncaused and ever present.
Openness sensing Openness - Life sensing Life - Self sensing Self.
If, however, we take a walk in nature or get a new job and think about an upsetting comment someone made and then worry about whether that will happen again then our beliefs, our programmed ways of viewing life, are filtering life. What is uncaused and ever present is then hidden. Rather than sensing our natural universal state we then sense a state based on our particular programming.
Could the question of HOW do we realize our natural, ever present state simply be a matter of how we are now perceiving Life? Could it really be that simple, direct and immediate?
If what is shared here resonates with you, please do not believe a word of it - but rather, if you choose, verify in your own experience what is true.
When you ask the question 'Is peace now present?' and remain open to sense life directly -
what is sensed?
When there are no beliefs or programming filtering life now - what is sensed?
The sage, Ramana Maharshi, points to Truth with the words ...
"Direct perception is ever-present experience."
Just as we know love directly without relying on belief, thoughts or even the five senses -
so it is with the truth of our being.
No belief is required to know our natural state of peace.
We know it directly. Now.
