Through the vehicle of our senses we can naturally learn how to open to a vaster intelligence – one that is undefinable and unlimited. Taken from Susanne’s latest online meeting.
We discuss the non-localized self. When we expand beyond the boundaries of the personal self we naturally experience our inter-connectedness with one another and with all of life.
In this Easter Sunday talk, I begin with the theme of the Kingdom of Heaven within. We discuss having the attention take a 180 degree turn, and the value of living outer life on the foundation of inner realization.
The more we hold ourselves back from life, the less we know ourselves as the Totality.
Deeper than our surface preferences, concerns and fears, lies a vast reservoir of allowance. We can learn how to access it by tuning into the heart, whose nature is unconditional acceptance and which holds all polarities comfortably within itself.
Our essential nature, which rests prior to all concepts, is unconditioned Being. When our essential nature is known and felt through the heart, life is viewed through the lens of unity. We feel a deep intimacy with everything. In fact, we appreciate that our “own” essential nature and that of everything are one and the same. This manifests in our behavior and experience as allowance, acceptance, welcoming, and a deeply felt intimacy with what is.
Learning how to increasingly tell (relative) truth both to ourselves and to others and as a result, living more authentically, is a doorway to absolute Truth.
An evening meeting with a Seattle non-dual group which was a prequel to a powerful weekend intensive. It takes maturity and a courageous willingness to come to stop looking outside of ourselves for ourselves. Are you ready to stand on your own two feet, stop wavering and go one pointedly towards what you want?
As we practice resting in that which is prior to content, we strengthen our capacity to know ourselves as all of creation. But first a solid base needs to be established on which consciousness is no longer glued in identification with what it is focusing on. This broadens one’s capacity to sense into oneself as the whole, no longer solely a personal identity, but knowing oneself as everyone and everything.
Life is evolving, asking us to rise up to embrace our inner autonomy and to meet as equals in service to the whole. The old paradigm of a few teachers serving as ‘wisdom holders’ is ebbing. We are transitioning from a hierarchical way of meeting others in Truth with the teacher on top, to an egalitarian one in which we meet in a circle, inviting each another to express our own knowing, gifts, and strengths. In this new paradigm, the teacher can serve more as a facilitator, supporting participation and helping others to access their own wisdom.
