WHEN WE ARE UPSET OR HURT or feeling like the world is against us, we tend to blame some other person or some outside event. We may be confronted by an angry person, or have an accident of some sort, or there’s a family squabble, or we’re just having a bad day.
WE TEND TO IGNORE OR DISBELIEVE any new ideas, especially about spirituality that clashes with our own ingrained beliefs and yet, there is a way to get past those self opinionated beliefs that make us think that we are right about everything and that is to transcend those beliefs.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOUR BODY, but look at it from a completely impersonal perspective, free of any thought about it, without any sense of ownership. Look in the mirror at your face, your eyes, but look without the thinking mind. What do you see?
WE ARE TOLD THAT IF WE BECOME ENLIGHTENED, or awakened, or consciously aware, it will assist us in understanding the reason for life and most importantly, who we are and why we are here. We are also told that our life will become free of problems.
A LOT IS SAID LATELY ABOUT SELF AWAKENING, but what is it we need to do exactly? We need to wake up to the fact that what we are, have always been, and cannot help but be is pure Awareness. We need to fully realize that we are not the self-image we have of ourselves, we are not our body, nor our thoughts.
