how to actively sit & be

1-IMG_7861.jpg

Our inner authority emanates from the nakedness of our soul. Once we remove our masks and opinions, our authority of being resides in whatever point of stillness we can no longer question. Our authority of being resides in the fact of being here, regardless of what circumstance surrounds us, regardless of what we have to put back on to live in the world.

Our awareness of our depth of being is fleeting. Yet just because we close our eyes doesn’t mean the sun has disappeared. And just because we can’t keep the unquestionable fact of being alive in view doesn’t mean that the inherent vitality of life has disappeared. We are more than what happens to us. We are more than what we think or fear. The turbulence we encounter is very real, but underneath what happens to us is the inherent, unwavering fact of life filling us from within.

~Mark Nepo

there was always this ineffable quality surrounding spirit….of course….but the dirtier soul work requires a fair amount of grit and upheaval…..

and the mystery reveals

Knowledge of what is

does not open the door directly

to what should be.

~Albert Einstein
