No matter what happens below you, just turn your eyes upward and relax your heart. You do not have to leave the seat of Self in order to deal with the darkness. It will purify itself if you let it. Getting involved in the darkness does not dispel darkness; it feeds it. Don’t even turn toward it. Just sit in the seat of awareness and never leave. No matter what goes on below you, open your heart and let it go. Your heart will become purified, and you will never know another fall. If you fall along the way, just get up and forget it. Use the lesson to strengthen your resolve. Always let go as soon as you’re aware that you didn’t. Let go. No matter what it is, let it go. You either let go or you don’t. There really isn’t anything in between. So let all of your blockages and disturbances become the fuel for the journey. That which is holding you down can become a powerful force that raises you up.
escape. release. come back.
inquiry for today~ to intellectualize is to suffer a little more as we avoid the rich pitfalls……where will you simplify mind today?
Sometimes we wonder what the purpose of life is. Usually when we ask this question we are disillusioned. Life seems tiresome, and we are not looking into various ideas about that because we have this deep sense of not succeeding at it. There are some who find deep solace in lofty religious ideas about life. Such psychological comfort will last until its foundation begins to shake. When we come to that point, the same discomforting question about the purpose of life arises again. Whenever that happens, what at first seems to be an insurmountable crisis can turn into a door to freedom, if we take the opportunity. In the end, there is no perfect answer to this dilemma except the transcendence of the whole things. This whole business of seeking and holding on to any notions of life’s purpose is the work of a mind that is not awakened to the truth.
