The Consciousness that projects and operates this dream of you and me, is the One Consciousness. It is the eternal, ever expanding, infinite Light of Love. The dream of creation appears in you, in Awareness and is not separate from you. Realization of the nature of the creation and your true place in relation to it, enables discovery and assimilation of a freedom of infinite vastness and purity.
Make space for the grace of your of consciousness to reveal itself to you. Open yourself to the vast untapped realms of knowing which are yet unknown to you. Transcend the conditioning that has you doubting your capacity to be limitless, free and existing from a foundation of unconditional happiness. Have the courage and fire, to ask for truth.
Recognize your Self.
Through a questioning life which has contacted a number of altering states, epiphanies, out of body experiences and exposure to ancient spiritual teachings, I have removed all doubts of my limitless self nature.
The origins of the teachings of Vedanta, of Self Knowledge or the Science of Self-Inquiry, are that of revelations seen or heard during profound ’spiritual’ experiences of pure consciousness.
This has in large part, been my experience. While it’s tricky to discuss experiences, out of concern that others will reinforce their fixation on hungering for them, there does for me, seem to be a profound value in what I have seen and heard at particular moments of this life.
The greatest value of such epiphanies and revelations, is the removal of false notions and ignorance of one’s nature. As ignorance is removed, the ever present truth begins to dawn.
It occurred with the sages and rishies of India thousands of years ago, who made a life’s work of comparing and assembling their understanding into the ancient spiritual texts of India. There have been many others through time who have been guided in this manner, to the truth of our existence.
When they have occurred, the messages of new and doubtless understandings just suddenly appeared in me, in awareness. The ultimate benefit of any experience, whether spiritual or not, is whatever useful self understanding you gather from the experience.
One of the challenges for me with these events and their messages, was a limited ability to assemble them together, and fill in the remaining spaces, in order to have a complete and clear recognition of the full picture which was being revealed to me. Our tendencies to interpret meaning based on a life of limited experience, can be a barrier to grasping the truth clearly.
This challenge was solved for me, through the meeting of a teacher in India. With this Self Knowledge firmly rooted in my existence, there seems that there is little for me to do here, but engage in expressing it back to the self, through the field of dharma, in which I’m apparently functioning.
What else could one love to do more, than maintain an abidance in self knowing and to invite others to discover their ever free nature?
