Alive… Awake… & Inspired

Life, The Inexhaustible

The moment I want to keep, to keep anything… an insight, a revelation, any good that comes my way… is the moment where I die… die to the awareness of who I really am: The Inexhaustible! The inexhaustible Givingness of the Spirit. In those moments where I fall back into Identification with the Ego, with the Particular, The separate Being, I cease to see who I am, because I cease to give, because I cease to share, to share what belongs to the Universe: my life, the Inexhaustible, The Universal.

To keep my life is to loose my life… is to die to my true nature: The Universal. To give my life, to share my life is to be awaken to the Truth, my true infinite nature: The Inexhaustible. Because that’s what my true nature does: it gives itself with no withholds, it shares itself, with no limits whatsoever. That’s why it’s called: The Inexhaustible. That’s why it’s called: The Universal.

Surrender

Surrender goes so deep that you actually give up your life and especially that what seems to govern your life: your notions, your understanding. Arrived at ZERO, everything is changed and yet the same.
To surrender, to give yourself to the Universe is to be at ZERO… is to call forth the infinite capacity: The Inexhaustible, The Universal.
The question, the real question every moment is: how can I grow in my capacity, the Infinite? how can I enfold what is already in its fullness within me?
Some say: Realization is everything…. that you walk your talk and that’s true. Nevertheless I say: Capacity is everything.
It’s the source, the Source Energy itself.
So…. how much capacity do you have for Light, the Light Divine? I finally surrender. That’s my capacity: to surrender. To surrender everything to the Magnificent Radiant – The Inexhaustible, the Universal.

Today’s notes on impermanence

The more I notice the impermanence of all things… the more obvious is the eternal peace and changeless reality of the One Seer and Witness, the radical subjectivity of all existence.
That’s Peace to me: it’s my daily awakening to the impermanence of it all.

Liberating myself from all views and notions… moment by moment… I cherish things as they are: the pristine miracle of life – always right here, always right now.

What is thinking through you right now?

Michael Beckwith: “And so… you to ask yourself from time to time: What is thinking through me in this moment? It will keep you wise and sober, and I don’t mean just sober from drugs. I am talking about the sobriety that comes when you share off the dust of the world and its inclinations towards consumerism, materialism, hate, fear, doubt and worry, prejudges… And so when you asking yourself: what is thinking through me, it gives you moment by moment barometer of witnessing what’s flowing through your awareness at that time so that you can ultimately bear witness to the Truth of your Being that makes you Free! – What’s thinking through you in this instant?”

…only kindness remains

“When you realize where you come from, no imagination can move you to believe that you are separate. Everything is seen for what it is, and you understand that no one is in danger of losing anything but his identification. And in that forever good news, in the face of everything that appears to be real, only kindness remains…. There is nothing beyond that, not one thought. This world is enough for me. Anything I ever need to do or be is in this unlimited space… It’s always more beautiful here, wherever I am, than any story of a future or a past.” – Byron Katie, A thousand names for joy.

The Voice Within

The Inner Guidance is so precise and detailed and yet in its pure essence so completely, completely formless! The more I trust completely this formlessness of guidance, the more precise and detailed it gets.

Just to assume in my imagination as possibility –  that a perfectly synchronistic guidance is occurring in my life ALREADY – that’s so huge, soooo huge! Why? Because even before I get to experienced it… my very ability to see it, to imagine it as possible – is already nothing less than touching its first reality.

You-Are-Not-The-Doer: Experiment continous

This is definitely one of the most Mind expending and fascinating experiments I’ve ever done in my life. It’s really staggering what you discover when you start observe yourself like that. Assume the possibility, just for a moment… like 1 minute experiment: “You are not the doer”. Instead: Everything is doing itself, is occurring on its own accord, including you!” I give you my example:

Yesterday… stunned by the sheer beauty of our backyard here in Sedona I realize: “Observation is the highest form of creation.”

What occurs when you observe yourself? Your point of view expands, expands and expands. And the more you observe, observe everything – at the certain point – you suddenly discover that – what you observe (whatever it is)  – it occurs of its own, inclusive your body & your personality! – Everything happens of its own! It is a strong, a very strong discovery. Some mystics call it: God-Shock. You wake up as the Observer and you are in Shock because of what you see: This gigantic dream called “Universe” happens on its own accord and there is no way to separate us from its action & creation. We can only pretend to be separate.

Isn't that amazing?

In my diary, I find a note today, from Monday, December 15 2008:

“I woke up and immediately noticed: there is this peculiar feeling of being awake in another dream. The sense of dreaming is sheer beauty and wonder… Suddenly, I notice, I remember: All this leads to nowhere… is going nowhere: Now-Here. What a trip!
Time disappears. Space disappears: Joy Is. Wonder Is. Infinite Surprise Is.

Imagine… all those things you have undertaken in your life until now, with the hope to arrive somewhere… And after all those adventures were gone, what I was left with was this: nothing happened. That was literally the feeling. I am still here where I always was: nowhere: Now-Here! All these adventures… they seemed to take me to another place and actually the whole journey went utterly, utterly nowhere. Now-Here. Every single of those adventures was over even before it happened. Isn’t that amazing? It’s exactly like in the metaphor from Ramana Maharshi:

“You speak as if you are here, and the Self is somewhere else and you had to go and reach it… …But in fact the Self is here and now, and you are always It. It is like being here and asking people the way to the ashram, then complaining that each one shows a different path and asking which to follow.”

Isn’t that amazing?

Returning to my origin

Before grasping for any kind of experience… notice what this grasping does to you. It manifests separation. It proclaims we are not quit yet complete and whole. The pursuit of our goals usually doesn’t give us an immediate and tangible sense of wholeness and completeness of our life as it is right now, right here; usually it seems to promise fulfillment in an imagined future.

Now, do you notice? The central assumption here is that our means, our paths, our goals will lead us to that place, our ultimate place! And of course we believe so much in this assumption, we don’t even notice the most basic and natural state, the state of being alive, in which everything returns to its origin – sustaining the balance of Creation, the “Divine Equilibrium” of all Existence. In this context Ramana Maharshi’s metaphor for Self-Realization makes complete sense to me:

“You speak as if you are here, and the Self is somewhere else and you had to go and reach it… …But in fact the Self is here and now, and you are always It. It is like being here and asking people the way to the ashram, then complaining that each one shows a different path and asking which to follow.”
