You Are Here: Home » Archives: March 2010
If you really listen, your heart will open up, and all that holding called “being somebody” will unwind and dissolve into spaciousness. Deeply knowing that you are not separate from this mysterious, miraculous life will engender trust in just being here.
When the doorway to the infinite opens, you can relax. Because it’s the end of trying; the end of seeking; and the beginning of discovery. The way of discovery is in listening and seeing from the heart, and becoming free of grip of the need to know.
What we’re truly seeking is the actual happiness that comes from living in the vast, open heart of oneness. We are only burdened by the stories we are unable to express in the unconditional space of loving awareness. That’s why we come together — to make an offering, in silence or in dialogue, of whatever may be burdening our mind, our body, or our heart.
We see the light in each other. We feel the love of our one heart, and it is a blessing. It brings out gratitude and appreciation, and a real sense of what is truly the meaning of life: to be here, completely, without anything pushing or holding back. The meaning of life is to be fully at home, right now.
Even when circumstance are bombarding or overwhelming you, you always can return right here, and find the flowering of truth within your own heart, your own body, your own being. Always available, always waiting for you to arrive home — infinitely patient, infinitely accepting. This essence that we are is the realm of our healing, the realm of our being forgiven, the realm of our transformation; the realm of our salvation.
“When awareness is present, give it all of your love, and surrender to it. Allow it to awaken and heal you. Every moment of recognizing it is really to be honored so that we let go of ‘when’, we let go of that future possibility, and we realize ‘when’ is actually now — only now.” Recorded 10/22/2012 in San Francisco.
“What would it be like if you could remove all the filters of knowing, and perceive life directly, like a newborn baby?” Recorded 10/15/2012 in San Francisco.
“How do you find the extraordinary in the ordinary? How do you find infinite fullness in a moment of simplicity?” Recorded 9/24/2012 in San Francisco.
“Alignment happens; blossoming happens. And we’re constantly given the opportunity to let it happen, to let go into awareness, to let go into an energetic opening.” Recorded 9/10/2012 in San Francisco.
“If you’re deeply tuned into listening — free of mind, free of thought, listening from the vastness of the heart — that is the ultimate listening. May you deepen and expand into that amazing listening that continues, reveals and unfolds, endlessly and forever.” Recorded 9/8/2012 in Santa Cruz.
