The work of life review, leading to life resolution, releases us from our story. It is the work of self-inquiry. It engenders a liberation into the freedom of presence- into experiential attention, free from narrative. Opening the heart liberates us from the limitations of fear. It is here that we enter into awareness beyond self. It brings us to communion, directly into love. It is one of the great task and the great joys of a human experience. Opening the mind is to make space in the mind. It emancipates our attention from the distractions of assumptions and reactions. It also frees us from our beliefs, from all that we think we know. It allows entrance into the wonder of the great mystery and the wisdom clarity of direct knowing. It, also, is an essential task of awakening. ~Kathleen Dowling Singh
there is no map of awakening, only a fierce paradigm……when we pry open our hearts to allow storms to pass through, we then know our depths…….
When I realized my true being,
I left behind my human nature to look after itself,
until its destiny is exhausted.
Let there be
into the quiet
that lies beneath
where you find
you did not think
and see what shimmers
within the storm.
