Joy is so much deeper than the appearance of things.
Things sometimes look messy.
And sound and smell messy.
And may even feel messy -
when we're open
we can sense Joy
underneath and in
all that seems so messy.
When we're not resisting anything ...
when we're open to everything
joy, love, clarity
It’s so easy to love when others do what we think they should
but if love is really unconditional then it has no borders.
What's easy doesn't mean it's true.
Waking up to our true nature is a call to the knowing of this love.
If we’re selective with love - if anyone at all is excluded –
then that's an invitation - an opportunity - to look deeper.
Our thoughts tell us love has limits -
certain people at certain times seem outside of our love.
Thoughts know nothing about love - how can they?
They're only thoughts ...
but our Heart knows.
Thankfully, we can always choose what to trust.
Whenever I see acts of violence such as what recently happened to George Floyd,
I feel such sadness not only for the one on the receiving end
but for those perpetrating the violence.
My heart goes out to them both - to George Floyd and to the police officer
who kept his knee on George’s neck while ignoring his ‘I can’t breathe’ pleas.
How utterly shut off from his true sense of Self that officer must be.
It's such a hellish experience to live feeling cut off
from our natural true sense of peace and love.
Yesterday I watched this video from the spiritual teacher Mooji
about not only the death of George Floyd
but the real possibility we have to go beyond our egoic sense of self.
There is no other way for us to live together in peace and love
until we ourself know the peace and love that is unconditional.
If anything - or anyone at all - confuses us out of this peace and love
then that is an invitation for us to look more deeply.
World peace is the ripple - We are the Source...
this is how important our awakening is.
Awakening is activism at the deepest level.
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."
