Have you ever felt something like "You need to change for me to feel okay" or "There is something wrong with me/others/life and until it's fixed I can't be at peace."
These kind of feelings and beliefs can all be boiled down to: "I am right that lack is real - either in reference to me, you or life." And, at a certain level, this feeling of discontent feels good. When we are very honest we can get in touch with how good it feels to stick with the 'I am right that something is wrong' level of conditioning.
Getting in touch with the perceived pay-offs of conditioning is very helpful in seeing the way out.
It is truly amazing how the Truth of what we all are
is an ever deepening discovery and exploration.
Although there is the stability of knowing the Truth of Being
that reveals itself - in my experience, anyway, the more
I explore the more I discover. And the more I discover the
deeper and wider the exploration.
And this short article (link below) about my time in Italy
at the Science and Non-Duality Conference
demonstrates how the revealing of the Infinite
is wonderfully never ending.
Can the all-inclusive view
of the giraffe be our own -
or are we stuck
with the view of fear?
This Thrive Global article
touches on both views:
If there’s nothing to be done to become what we already are – is there anything to be done to realize what we already are?
Just as we don't have to add anything to what we are to be what we are - we don't have to add anything to what we are doing to realize what we are.
Realizing what we are is more of an undoing or a relaxing out of misperceiving what we think we are. When we 'perceive' Life directly rather than filtered through programming our true Self comes into focus.
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."
