From within or from behind, a light
shines through us upon things,
and makes us aware that we
are nothing, but the light is all.
……Ralph Waldo Emerson
are we ever ready for what is next? do we ever really know how to rest in grace? maybe if we just had one more moment, we could feel our heart fire…….
Awareness transcends what it is aware of. It is as separate as light is from what it shines upon. You are consciousness, and you can free yourself from all of this by relaxing behind it. If you want permanent peace, permanent joy, and permanent happiness, you have to get through to the other side of the inner turmoil. You can experience a life in which waves of love can rush up inside of you any time you want. It is the nature of your being. You simply have to go to the other side of the psyche. You do that by letting go of the tendency to cling. You do it by not using your mind to build false solidity. You just decide, once and for all, to take the journey by constantly letting go……..Michael Singer
And suddenly understand
That you, Deep Night,
Surround me and play with me,
And I am stunned-
Your breath comes over me.
And from a vast, distant solemnity
Your smile enters me.
