What if….

What if your life purpose is to learn to Be… Be who you truly are… what if it has nothing to do with having a great job, superstar status, riches, fame, great relationships, an ideal weight or fitness, being strong or empowered… what if your purpose is to realise who you are?… Sure, have fun on the way following the pathless path but don’t get lost in the ego’s idea of success or purpose.

Your purpose is to realise that you are the stillness that pervades all experience and that experience is just the fluffy stuff on the surface… like the fluffy white waters as waves break… you are not the waves or the fluff… you are the boundless ocean of conscious awareness… YES really! It’s a simple as that… please, have fun on the way… but take time to rest in the stillness of the pure presence that is you… the experience part of consciousness becomes more simple and fun when you are not identified with it as as separate self with a personal story of who you are… let go… and Be… And if mind voice roars… rubbish, she’s talking rubbish… that’s ok too… the silent awareness hears…Hawaii Beaches-16

Silence Calling

They say that silence has a sound
But what do you hear
Listen
Listen to the sound of silence

Tell me what you hear

Silence has a richness
An alive lively presence awake to itSelf
It has a secret it is dying to tell you
Silence and stillness know you intimately
Stillness is the unmoving, unchanging presence of Awareness aware of itSelf
Silence is the sound of stillness

The essence of who you truly are

But more, there is more than that

The sound you hear in silence is the sound of your true heartbeat
Beating itSelf awake in the aliveness
An impulse to enlighten itSelf
to see the true aliveness of who you are reflected in the brightly shining mirror of Self

And as you hear the sound of silence
Resonating, beating in every cell of your Being
Feel the aliveness
The resonating resonance
Resonant vibration

Creating sound
Alivening itSelf

A frequency you only hear when it arrives as a memo from Truth
To remind you who you are
What you are

Oh no friend, you are not that body, not that mind
No-thing you have perceived yourself to be

In the silence you will know the truth

In the silence you will find the doorway
These words are the key to the doorway
To the mystery you have sought to solve
Let go of everything you know and step through the doorway into the silence
Truth will meet you there

Feel your true Self
Alive, as your cosmic heart beats in joyful awe of it’s wakefullness

Melt into the mystery
Give yourself to the vastness

Die into freedom
Let go
Let go
Take off that suit
Take off the burden of who you thought you were

Take off the suit of a small me that has always been too tight
A suit that has never seemed to fit
Unzip that suit and give yourself to who you are

To absolute freedom

The silence is who you are

Pure silent awareness
Unbounded
Infinite

Never changing

Constant

Let go of the noise of the self involved story of me
Step into the silence presence of Truth

*

And don’t look back… No, don’t look back!

Keep stepping in and in and in and dive deeply into the unknown
Feel the expanded truth as you let go and let go and let go even more
Fall awake
Into what you have always been
What you always were
Who you truly are
Unbounded, silent Awareness…

silence

Unbounded silent presence…

There is no such thing as an awakened person. What wakes up is Self to the fullness of itSelf. In this moment the identification with the mind body personality as ‘who I am’ falls away. This is not the end of what you have known as your small self, he or she still exists as the small part of consciousness that it has always been. 

What is spoken of here cannot be understood by the mind. The mind cannot understand intellectually that there is something (pure consciousness – Totality) that is so much vaster than the mind can begin to imagine. Mind likes to try and mind likes to think it knows everything, it’s actually quite sweet! 

The direct experience of the Self as the wholeness that is already fulfilled, as the fullness that contains the mind body personality is the awakening. Feeling awake in the illusion is the call of Self to small self to realise itself as so much more…. to let go into the Truth of Being. Every journey home is a noble one. There is nothing to do and nothing to achieve and nothing to search for. 

No person is more special than another or more worthy. How can the mind ever truly find itself worthy of such freedom? How can consciousness not be worthy of knowing the truth of Being? Worthiness in itself is a notion of the mind. 

The realisation of wholeness is the natural birthright of all ‘apparent’ individuals. Many are called to realize this truth, few respond…. however, the call is getting louder! 

Unconditional openness is who you already are. Your life experience and personal story arises from what is already whole and fulfilled. And that wholeness is the complete picture of who you are. Seeing only the mind body personality as who you are is like seeing a zoomed in close up and missing the rest of the total field of consciousness that is YOU. 

Let go into the full realisation of this and you will know freedom and wholeness AND your personality and life will be the same (with some minor changes for the better!) What is not serving consciousness will fall away in the face of Truth.

What can you do to realise this? Nothing! That’s what some see as a bummer! 

What you are is already here and is asking to be seen. How to see it is through Being the stillness and silent presence and in this Beingness Self can itSelf fully if mind stops long enough for Self to get a full view. Listening to awake consciousness speaking through mind body vessels (known as people!) is of great benefit. Self likes to hear itSelf and comes alive in the presence of itSelf.

All wisdom teachings invite presence, silence, stillness and surrender as a way of bringing more awareness. Practices themselves are not the magic key but they support refinement of the nervous system.

There is an open invitation to stop and realise what is here. It is way simpler than most minds imagine so the seeking goes on and on looking for something that was always here.

Become the witness to your thoughts and life. Notice what it is that does not change. Rest as that presence. Be still. Allow it all. Resist nothing and Be as you aware. Grace is here. You are here. All of you is here. Let go into seeing your wholeness, allowing your wholeness…. The shift to seeing the Truth of Being is unmistakable. You look for yourself and the finding is infinite awareness, unbounded silent presence….

Become the witness to your story…

Become the witness to your story…. When we can observe the story of me unfolding from the silent background there is an opportunity for a profound realization. The realisation of your Self. That you are the silent witness, the silent awareness that is watching. That you are not your story. Then there is the possibility to let go into unbounded freedom, into the wholeness of Being that you already are and have always been instead of putting energy into trying to create a better, more powerful story of me. 

As we recognise there has been a misidentification with the story of me and realise we are the awareness watching this experience of ‘me’, then your story can unfold in complete surrender as the fulfillment you already are. We recognise we are not a personal story but an exquisite story of one Beingness. It is a beautiful thing. 

Rest as the silent awareness watching…. and if there is a sincere interest to know peace, freedom, love… this is where you will find all this and more has been waiting for you to come home all along
