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….
