Teachings

There is a circle around you and me that holds the expression of Life, in all its various forms.

Imagine, too, that you are that circle.

You have the space to hold everyone you meet.

After sharing a home with Rishi (pictured) for the past year, I can see more clearly that,

Loving is not voluntary, only acknowledging it is.

It is as though this 17-pound cockapoo went into the depths of my soul and pulled love out. She did not even ask for my permission. This is my first time being pleased about an invasion.

Rishi knows the path to Love, to Being, without knowing that she knows it.

We all do too. Except that maybe we think about it too much.

It’s as though we are afraid to go where Love is.

Do not be afraid.

Even though Love resides within each one of us, no one owns it. You have permission to pull it out of everyone you meet.

Go for it!

Love is truly what we are and express.

I am the unending unfolding of not knowing.

What I am is not known, and I am progressing, moment by moment, towards the realization of what I am.

As I allow Love, the Infinite Ocean of Love, the all-inclusive and expansive cosmic wave of Love consciousness, to be in the foreground of my lived experience, of my being in the world, then I will be more of what I am, as opposed to what I think that I am.

I am ever moving towards that which I do not know, but am.

You think, feel, dream, act, speak,

It does seem that way, doesn’t it?

Check again.

Who thinks, feels, dreams, acts, speaks?

That will be your most important discovery.

The mind records all our deeds and fears.

Then later, amplifies and replays them at will, repeatedly.

This mind game disturbs and distracts us.

Best we act without attachment, and overcome our fears.

That way the mind won’t torment us as much.

Some people are going around ‘needing’ to do things that they could simply choose to do.

The difference?

The first is like trying to carry a hippopotamus on your shoulders,

While the second is like riding a bicycle downhill.
