TRUTH OF REALITY
“Truth or reality cannot be stored, cannot be amassed – it does not accumulate. The value of any insight, understanding, or realization can only be in the ever-fresh presence of the moment. Yesterday’s realization is not a bit of good – it is dead, it has lost its vitality. It is useless to try and cling to or hold onto an insight, understanding, or realization, for only in its movement can ever-fresh and new insights of truth or reality appear. The idea of enlightenment or self-realization as a onetime event or a lasting and permanent state or experience is an erroneous concept. Understand-ING or know-ING is alive in the immediacy which can never be negated. The emphasis is on the activity of know-ING which is going on as the immediacy now – not the dead concept I understand or I know.”
That is the beauty of being with the dissonance…it takes U right to the edge of your own misconceptions as they become visible through the mental and emotional meaning making …so the programmed filters can be seen and disqualified. It allows for the spaciousness within to expand by simply noticing these edges of the habituated constructs that keeps us bound. It is a continuous journey to simply receive and accept all of oneself ‘genuinely’…. and open up to the larger system of hidden harmony and connectivity previously unseen.
Freedom only comes by being in contact with the dissonance, be it emotional, financial, sexual, social etc. It is fuckin painful and at times feels unbearable..and God knows I have wanted to check out of facing these edges…, nonetheless…this is when the mental and emotional programming in seeking for meaning and solution is clearly seen. It is only by awareness itself ‘seeing this process that the clarity ultimately uncoils the misconceptions at our own core, as these misconceptions are fed by emotional habituated patterns and sensations in the body mind.
I am not interested in enlightenment if it means detachment from the emotional body, the earth plane, the challenges of being human. I am not interested in ‘non-duality’ if my personal identifications, healthy ego and body temple are removed from the non-dual field. I am not interested in self-avoidance masquerading as enlightenment. I AM interested in enrealment, because it means that my most spiritual moments are inclusive, arising right in the heart of a heartfelt immersion in all that is human: agony & ecstasy, laundry list & unity consciousness, earth & sky, joy & sorrow, fresh mangoes & stale bread. Its all God, even the dust that falls off my awakening heart.
