Spirit: where no ego lives

Do you ever notice that you are fighting with yourself.  While gurus and spiritual teachers, myself included, talk about these 2 minds- ego and Self- its equally important to recognize that as stated in Course in Miracles,
 
“Salvation comes from my one Self”
 
Lets face it, it is hard to fight, taxing on the body, mind and spirit.  When we are working to undo our fearful thoughts, which the ego really needs to hold onto, then it is difficult to really receive the healing, gentle and loving nature of the One Self.  When we are fighting, we are not accepting and we are not trusting; it is from acceptance and trust that joy, peace, and love, a.k.a. salvation, reside.
 
So here is another teaching:
 
there is no ego.
 
My friend visited and brought this to me this weekend.  At first, I resisted this teaching because I have seen many miracles happen while going beyond my ego’s fearful thought system.  At the same time, what is being said is similar to the Course’s teachings that until I can recognize the Spirit as the One Self, until I can trust and accept the I AM, then peace or salvation can not reign here on Earth.
 
Being perfect is a fundamental Truth of who we are in Spirit.  However, if we want to focus on our bodies, how much our bodies can be perfect, then we divide ourselves.  Firstly, this is due to the fact that there are infinite ways to grow and stretch; our imperfections, as seen in the body’s eyes, will always limit our thinking if we focus there for too long.  With that said, focus today on the Spirit- by focusing on the Spirit, the energy of joy, peace, happiness, love and freedom,  the ego can not touch us.  When we focus on the spirit, we are going beyond the ego into no ego, into the One Self where also “salvation” lives.  In other words, when we focus on the spirit of peace, joy and love, then we are resonating within a state of grace, of Heaven, thus bringing more of it to the world.  
 
Be happy!!  En- JOY!!!

The Willingness to Move Forward

Image
 “Prem means love, devarahi means a divine pilgrim. The full name will mean a divine pilgrim of love. Life is a pilgrimage, and unless love is attained, it remains only a pilgrimage never reaching anywhere. It goes on moving in circles and never does the moment of fulfillment come when one can say ’I have arrived. I have become that for which I had come. The seed is fulfilled in the flowers.”
 Osho,  “Don’t Look Before You Leap”
The willingness to move forward is not a horizontal view but a vertical one.  It is the willingness to see one’s worth, stepping into the unknown with love, courage and compassion; at the same time, it is leaving love present through circumstance and situations, being grateful for life experiences, the wisdom cultivated in the process and the forgiveness that allows one to breath.  Moving forward in willingness, in love, is a gift to the world and is therefore returned, for what it requires is courage and the audacity to accept oneself completely, despite mistakes along the way.
The gift that willingness offers is a rebirth.  The death that occurs is the realization of worthiness and higher purpose.  For when one moves forward, despite fear and shame, they rescript the world’s belief in fear, scarcity, lack and limitation.  Invariably, these beliefs are overcome within the individual and as the seeker moves forward in willingness, their belief in love and purposefulness grows.
As courage and might within the individual grows, their beside him/her are mighty companions who wish to move forward in willingness too.  They may or may not be embracing the Truth fully; however, the more courageous the seeker becomes, the Truth unfolds before them and so too does their willingness.  As willingness grows within them, their light becomes joined and  thus, increases in value by those whom see themselves as “outside.”  In this, the fear to look inside dissolves and the world’s problems now become unmasked, seen as an inner problem that now has resolution.  The little willingness that is required is all it takes.
A time comes for the seekers of Truth to emerge more fully, embracing their gifts and shining light onto the world.  Now, that they are joined, the grandeur that he/she offers in presence, becomes multiplied and shared.  However, the seeker that walks in willingness also must walk with gentleness and therefore, the willingness to rest must always be remembered.  It is in times of rest that the seekers of Truth integrate and gather strength.

The Choice: Truth or Illusion

The CHoice: toward spiritual evolution

In the LIght of the Shadow

There will be choices along the path.  These choices are opportunities to choose oneness or fear.  The choice is your awareness of both the light and the shadow in a situation and within yourself.  When you are aware of both the light and shadow, you can make a choice.  Ask yourself: “Do I want truth or illusion?”  “Do I want unconditional love, oneness, peace, harmony, joy or do I wish to multiply illusions, feeding a belief in fear, shame, guilt and separation.”

“ Everything you see is a result of your thoughts.  There is no exception to this fact.  Thoughts are not big or little; powerful or weak.  They are merely true or false.  Those that are true create their own likeness.  those that are false make theirs.”

_Course in Miracles

When we identify with the shadow and think we deserve it, that we are punishable or otherwise in need of remorse, the shadow seems to consume us and so does our outward picture of “life.”  Thus, when we identify with the shadow, it creates more illusions around us.  When we have the subtle awareness of both light and shadow- truth or illusion- we are more apt to choose the light, because the light is who we really are in Truth.  The discernment between truth and illusion becomes clearer when perception dissolves into clarity.

In light of the shadow, we choose love.  In light of the shadow, we see it for what it is and integrate what our heart says is best.  In light of the shadow, we raise our hearts and minds to a higher purpose, to see Truth as love, the only reality.  We acknowledge in the past that we have denied and forgotten love because of fear; however as the choice becomes clearer, Truth or illusion, so does our reality shift.  We have denied because we have been perpetuating beliefs that have us believe we are so far removed from our Source.  The reality is the exact opposite.  The Source in within and never leaves.

When the thought arises, the “shadow” or “the scary place,” we might say, we need not quickly toss it away, deny it or make it wrong; for when we do, we act impulsively and with guilt, and then claim victim without a choice.  Instead, therefore, we do our best to sit with the shadow longer and in deep contemplation, we make the discernment of what our heart feels is “good,” compassionate and loving.  This simple act is an automatic clearing of perception into true awareness, formless and within us all.

The clearer our perception the greater our chance of peace, unconditional love, harmony and joy.  A person may wish to deny the desire of these things because somewhere in life, he/she learned differently, opposite to what is true.  However, the past is past and we can not bring it here to excuse us of our habits, tendencies and impulsive nature.  Instead, we must choose consciously.  We must see the choice is there and have the desire to raise our perception to light, to higher purpose, to compassion and heart.  Also we must forgive ourselves and give our reactivities and judgments, fear and shame to the Love that takes it all way.

“Now is the time when I let go of my Fears, ambitions and sense of dread. when I give up control and let you hold me with no resistance in my soul…This is the day when I throw it all away to the fire of the all loving one. Now I have just what I need to feel free to be who I really am.. .  Lyrics by Jaya Lakshmi.
