‘Stoopid’ Humans

After a pleasant weekend celebrating my partner’s Mom’s 80th we got back to our little cold house. This house likes to be occupied.

I got some rubbish and went out to the back garden wheelies binsĀ  and was affronted by the loutish loud tones of a biker gang member trash talking someone on his cell phone. Ahh wonderful I thought… sarcastically. It is unusual for our middle aged brain dead biker neighbour to have his hommies round. By the sounds someone had dissed one of their members and the war talk I over heard was unpleasant especially in an echoing outside setting.

Weird how we can live on a planet that gives us the opportunity to see into our true nature aka enlightenment and at the same time it allows for ‘younger souls’ to piss around and be infantile.

Indeed this is a strange place.

Just Imagine

Just imagine that this whole show ‘Life’ is being played out by one actor-director -producer. All has been pre-scripted and the character just has to realize this at the right time in the script.

Practice of Non Practice

Enlightenment requires you sit 1000s of hours over decades to become liberated from the notion of egocentricity. Is the that true?

Awakening for me came a totally different way in a quarry in the Cotswolds, England. I had no teacher or guru. Or paid Western facilitator i.e. some wanna be non dual celeb. who has a book published or three, 5000 social media followers and the sanction of an ‘enlightened’ personage who can make wrong choices even if they think everything is perfect! I just had the companionship of another sincere seeker and we experienced our true selves over a period of several hours of inner and outer experiences.

Those who have sat on the mat and got it will usually recommend their way as the main way. I would say if questioned how to be awakened….well look around first and see what suits you but be careful and use your own discretion. Stay away from someone who does not answer your questions directly or has any sniff of ‘I am the awakened one only I can be the head honcho here’….run fast for the door!

You could say well I’m no expert….but inside you is a fount of wisdom. Discover that! Just have the prayer or intention for it to be revealed and see what happens over the days, weeks, months and maybe years afterwards.

There are a raft of folk who also have followed a professional psychological profession before awakening and now teach awakening. These folk are useful but again not experts on you….you are. They are also fallible and tend to fall back on their psychological paradigms. If a male teacher dyes their hair run…..ego a gogo!

As for Eastern teachers if you’re a Westerner like me check them out but know a whole lot of unnecessary culture and religious dogma is carried by these teachers. You don’t need a robe or a mala to be enlightened all you need is curiosity for the truth, a tenacious willingness and the humility to know you don’t know.

Each awakening journey is different. May yours be short and sweet.

Namaste.

Big

The Universe….known that is, is mind bogglingly massive and yet if we observed it from the beyond it would look small…in a void of something maybe larger. Who knows? I’m no boff.

Yet whatever is seen or perceived is within the witness of our own consciousness. So we could say our own consciousness is the largest thing as it will always contain whatever is presented before it.
