Being

Being still does not mean don’t move.
It means move in peace.

Achieving Enough by Jeff Brown

So many people I encounter beat themselves up because they haven’t achieved “enough” by a certain age. And yet I know so many who achieved so much in the outer world, but have spent so little time communing with their souls, contemplating the deeper mysteries of life. Perhaps the real question is- am I walking the path that is truly my own, no matter how it looks to others? The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines…

Love This from Kirsten Popovic

his day I witnessed Spirit in the leaves that blew through me,
Like past hurts, woes and identities falling from me
Swept away by an ancient me.
This day I understood the yearning in me
Writhing like Gaia’s electricity
Charging the sleeping innate in me, God/dess stirring, shaking me.
This day I saw the reflection of me
Shimmer in the dancing sisters around me
Rise up from their earthen feet to shine mirrors of me.
This day I heard Spirit move through trees
Whispering ancient prophecy, humming Gaia’s chant through me
My breath, my voice, my blood all Spirit sacred me.
This day I felt the universe expand, contract, expel, create
In me the path to one from many
Rushing into light through each enlightening cell in me.
This day I learned to love myself, the human self, the angel self,
The masculine self, the selfish self, the selfless self, the compassionate unending, unhurting, untamed feminine wild screaming, healing, flowing self that is still only a fragment of me.
This day I realize my infinity and spiral out like all the ones before,
The witch, the hag, princess, queen, warrior, pauper, leper, maiden, eagle, wolf, mare and whore.
This day I allow my tears to carry the shadows from me,
I reach down into your soul and drag them out to set them free
Like so many birds now rising into blessed eternity.

Moorji says forget about it all!

Throw everything away, forget about it all! You are learning too much, remembering too much, trying too hard… Relax a little bit, give life a chance to flow its own way, unassisted by your mind and effort. Stop directing the river’s flow.

Struggle with Adyashanti

Only the ego asks how to stop struggling because all how-to questions lead to further struggle. This mechanism of maintaining struggle is how the ego maintains control. Struggling only ceases when you passionately inquire into who and what you truly are – deeply enough to awaken from the dream of being a personal separate self.”

The Impact of Awakening

“You are the Power House, the Power Tool” by Ptaah

Message from P’taah – January 2015

You Are the Power House, the Power Tool

You know, beloved peoples, you are absolutely doing it right. Because you see what has occurred in this timing where you are being involved in all of these stories, is that you have forgotten, many of you, the absolute simplicity. The absolute simplicity that who you are indeed is God/Goddess choosing to experience this dimension simply to bear witness to and take part in the change. You have forgotten, mmm? Not fireworks enough. Well that is all right. That is perfectly all right because you know, sooner or later you will get that the bottom line is, it all comes back to you because you create it all absolutely. And who you are absolutely is eternal. Who you are absolutely is abundance. Who you are absolutely is the one who has chosen this reality, this dimension, simply to take part, to bear witness to the change.
Simplicity. It all comes back to you. How wondrous indeed! And it is up to you to take the power because you are the powerhouse, you are the power tool. And it is all very well for you to get involved with whatever stories you want and to use whatever methodology you desire to get to where you think you are supposed to be, but bring it back to you. You are the power house, you are the power tool, and where you are is exactly where you are supposed to be. And you are not going to miss the boat, else you would not be here. That is the bottom line.
If you were not choosing to be here, to take part in the transition, if you were not absolutely wondrous and beauteous facets of God/Goddess, All-That-Is, you would not be here. Well it cannot get more simple than that, really, hmmm? It cannot.
All right. So you are the powerhouse. You are the power tool. You are the choice because you created it absolutely, so why have the wheels fallen off? Why is it not peaceful and joyful, with ease and flow, with joy and laughter. Why is it not this? Well, you will not find the answer outside of you! Here we are, just simply another channelled energy with more stuff for you to listen to. But we are only here for one reason–to remind you that that is where it started. That is where it ends. There is nothing else, hmmm? There is nothing else. Here it is, here.
And so if the wheels are falling off your life, if it is not as you would desire, if it is not the joy and the harmony, then it is simply to stop. Stop and look at what it is that is not as you would desire it to be. And simply to say, “What is it that I believe about this situation?” Write it down. “What do I believe about this situation?” Because you know, beloved peoples, that structure that you live within, those belief structures of your reality, tell you every day what you believe.
Look at what you fear. Really look at what you fear.  And you see, in every moment of your time, that which is not aligned is there for you to look at. It is very simple.
Some of those beliefs are so buried within you, so much a part of the fabric of your being, your consciousness, that you are not even aware that they arebeliefs about reality. For you they simply are reality.
So, on occasion, it would behoove you well to look at those beliefs. To say, “What do I really believe?” And to write down what it is, even that which you have heard from childhood. Because that which are the beliefs passed down to you become so much the fabric, that you think it is real and are not in understanding in truth that it is only a belief about reality. So look at that.
And look at the fears. Look at the fears. You know all of the fears that you have are the same. And it is quite amusing in a way, you know, because you all go to such incredible lengths to hide it, to hide what you fear. You go to such incredible lengths to be invulnerable. Now why? Why is it that you are afraid to be vulnerable?
You know it is simply that which come from that first pain and anguish from your childhood. And you know, you know within you, that if you open your heart, somebody will put a knife in there and you will die.
Even if your intellect says, “That is absolute nonsense,” that isn’t what it says in here, where you live. Well, you know, when it comes from there, when it comes from there, nobody can harm you, hmmm?
That is called the greatest position of power in your universe, in any universe. Open heart, vulnerability. “I am afraid! I am afraid that I am not enough. I am afraid I am not worthy of love and I am afraid of being lonely.
Well, you are not alone. You have never been alone and you never will be alone. But the only thing that keeps you from that absolute knowing that you are not separate from anything or anybody, is the fear. That is all.
Time to change it, eh? But it is simple. It is simple. That fear is simply the baby that lives here within you, that baby that you are, that you are now. That little frightened baby. Well, you know, all of you who are very busy to try to release, to stuff down, to put aside, that which is the fear. You would not do that with a baby.
You would take the babe in your arms, to your breast, and you would say to that babe, “Beloved, it it you and I and I will never leave you. You will never, ever be apart. We live in a safe universe and together we are going home.”
Is this not wondrous? Is it not simple? Absolutely.

A Constant State of Meditation by Adayshanti

A CONSTANT STATE OF MEDITATION

“As we begin to see that the arguments we have with life are a form of insanity, and how egoic consciousness keeps us in suffering, cracks may begin to appear in this old relationship we have with the way we see the world. Our reference for happiness no longer comes from the outside world. It doesn’t even come from our inner experience being a particular way; a sense of natural ease and happiness is there simply because we’ve opened entirely to the way things actually are.

Opening to things as they are is what it really means to be still, to be quiet, to be in a state of meditation. When you no longer resist reality as it is, you could say that you are in a constant state of meditation. We’re not just talking about a moment of contemplation or peace, but rather a way of changing our relationship with life such that our experience is not based in conflict, judgment, and constant evaluation. In this way, meditation becomes something that permeates our life in every moment.”
