No truer words can be spoken here, it does not need one more word added to it – except if you love it, share it.

COMING OUT

“I am gay.

I am straight.

I am lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender. I am a man, I am a woman, and everything in-between. I am a Christian, a Jew, a Hindu, a Buddhist, a Muslim, a Sikh, a humanist, a pagan, a Satanist. I am an agnostic, an atheist, a nihilist, a dualist and a non-dualist, a believer, a non-believer.

I am the space for laughter, tears, agony and ecstasy, the most ecstatic bliss and the most profound heartbreak, despair and disillusionment. I am the space for the wonderful dreams, the terrible nightmares, memories, visions and the most creative manifestations of light. All thoughts, all stories, all concepts, all sensations, all possible feelings, human and animal, vegetable and mineral, pass through me, arise out of me, and fall back into me.

I am Consciousness itself. I am what you are.

I am coming out as Love.”

– Jeff Foster

Emotions change,

they come and go.

You are that

which doesn’t

come and go.

You are the awareness

behind what arises.

 So…

the moment

you accept what arises,

you are free.

Resist Nothing: Guided Meditations

I received this week’s powerful question:

What am I taking too seriously?

My first thought upon reading that, was … how much time have you got?  :-)

Yet, my next thought was another question:

What can I hold lightly today?

I can hold lightly exactly everything I am willing to today.  I can come to willingness when there is nothing left but willingness, those “Jesus take the wheel” moments, or I could allow my willingness right here and now.

Here, where I hold it all lightly, that tightness in my chest begins to open up.  I can breathe more freely.  I become aware that I am standing in the field of possibilities now, where the options are limitless and this too shall pass, is … as always, inevitable.

What can you hold lightly today?

We are beings of vibrating, oscillating energy and we can operate on both receive and transmit.  I note that I sometimes do quite a bit of transmitting.  There’s an inner conversation often running in the background relating to things I observe: I like this, I prefer that, this is good, don’t like that and so on.

What happens when I begin to allow myself to be in an open, receptive mode?  I take a few conscious deep breaths, feel myself grounded in this body and allow the inner commentary to quiet.  I slow down and enter the still waters of just pure awareness.  Pure awareness which is free from my personal take on anything; an observer largely aloof and uninterested in drawing conclusions or forming opinions about people, situations or events.  And I cease being the proverbial blade of grass blowing whichever way outer conditions are blowing today.  I pay things “no mind” — literally.  Now, I am one who receives.  Resting in receiving, I discover an intelligence and a wisdom that transcends my experience as a locally focused being.

Imagine this profound peace found while resting in pure awareness.  Situations that seemed dense and immovable now seem porous and malleable when I discontinue the running commentary about what looks like the facts and outer conditions.  To discontinue, to break the continuity, interrupt the transmission of a particular consciousness I hold towards anything is exactly what allows these situations to become more fluid and flexible.

Anything can change in an instant and these things do change as we do.
