The invitation is simple: Let go of indulging in the mind, realize it doesn’t have the answers for you, and it doesn’t have the answers for us collectively. Together we can begin to stop the industry within ourselves and amongst each other. Realizing our deep, essential nature and finding the peace and happiness that lie there is not just something for ourselves and amongst each other. Realizing our deep, essential nature and finding the peace and happiness that lie there is not just something for ourselves; it’s a gift to all of humanity. When we can relate to ourselves from stillness, from a place before the mind, then we can begin to relate to each other from that same place. There’s really nothing to learn here. Awakening is actually a process of unlearning. This revelation begins with the recognition that you are not your mind, and you are not your ego or your personality. In fact, you are something much, much, vaster. ~Adyashanti
what unseen beauty have you missed along the way? the subtle radiances of exceptional kindness?
inquiry for today~ and perhaps our truest nature is experienced in the perfect light, the darkest dark and the moments when we are broken open? maybe?
Beauty invites us towards profound elegance of soul. It reminds us that we are heirs to elegance and nobility of spirit and encourages us to awaken the divinity within us. We are no longer trapped in mental frames of self-reduction or self-denunciation. Instead, we feel the desire to celebrate, to give ourselves over the dance of joy and delight.. The overwhelming beauty which is God pervades the texture of our soul, transforming all smallness, limitation and self-division. the mystics speak of the excitement of such unity. When we acknowledge the wild beauty of God, we begin to glimpse the potential holiness of our neglected wildness. The call of the wild is a call to the elemental levels of the soul, the places of intuition, kinship, swiftness, fluency and the consolation of the lonesome that is not lonely. The wild has a profound simplicity that carries none of the false burdens of brokenness or self-conflict; it flows naturally as one, elegant and seamless. ~John O’Donohue
