Freedom - individually and collectively.
Spirituality meets politics.
The Way We Look Out Of These Eyes Is Key
St. Francis said, ‘What we are looking for is already where we are looking from’
When we look and judge what we’re aware of
We obscure the sensing of that which is aware.
And when we look and are open to all that we’re aware of
We sense the true nature of that which is aware.
Being Awake In The Dream
If inner peace is dependent on who is elected or what our partner says or does or what career our children choose or anything at all then we are all victims and it makes complete sense to try and manipulate others to get what we want.
But if we truly are not victims - that means that nothing, absolutely nothing, external has the power to affect our sense of well-being and attempts to control others make no sense at all. This doesn’t mean, however, that we do nothing when we feel moved to – but this doing comes from a very different place than judgment and fear.
How different this world will be when more and more of us stop taking our cues from others and stand firm and loving - free - in our true power.
It is all very simple. Instead of seeing things imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you can see everything as it is, you will also see yourself as you are. It is like cleansing a mirror. The same mirror that shows you the world as it is, will also show you your own face."
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
"No problem can be solved
from the same
level of consciousness
that created it."
To see 'new solutions'
we must see differently.
