Seeking

Image

This week’s inquiry … questions designed to be experienced …

Are you still seeking that which you already are?  

Just sit there right now
Don’t do a thing
Just rest.
For your separation from God,
From love,
Is the hardest work
In this
World.
~Hafiz

Now that you have discovered
that which was not hidden,
go your way.
Now that we are united in
what is inseparable,
go your way.
Now that you have returned to
where you have never left,
go your way.
~Mooji

Go Your Way

Mooji_biography

Now that you have learnt
what cannot be taught,
go your way

Now that you have seen
what cannot be shown,
go your way.

Now that you have discovered
that which was not hidden,
go your way.

Now that we are united in
what is inseparable,
go your way.

Now that you have returned to
where you have never left,
go your way.

Now that you know That
which has no path,

go your own way.

If you keep indulging

the mind’s play, you will miss

the untouched stillness

inside your own heart.

Every thought,

every emotion

is only a tourist…

and I am not a hotel

let them come

and let them go

I’m Here

 

“If you have a strong need to be on a journey,

you will find yourself on one.

If you have the strong urge

that I need to be home,

very quickly you find yourself,

you are Home.”

~Mooji~

Neither path good nor bad.  Merge that with Eckhart Tolle’s:

“accept the is-ness of this moment”

and you and I find ourselves, exactly wherever we need to be at this time.

Be, in peace, my friends.

This is about a 17 minute video, but you could listen to the first five minutes and get the heart of the message.  If you make it all the way to the end, the story he tells, well, not a chance you could listen to it and not be moved upon.

“There is no need to know anything,
only look in the eyes of the Beloved.”  ~ Mooji

Right Left Right

My friend Amy shared with me paraphrases of the following teachings and I loved them so much, wanted to share with you also:

“You are not the contents of your life.”  Tolle would say.

“if you can observe it, it is not you”  Mooji would say.

“This shouldn’t be happening….is that true?”  Byron Katie would say.

“Who knows what is good or bad.”  An ancient Taoist proverb says.

I’ve chosen other quotes on my blog from Tolle, Mooji, Byron Katie, and the Taoist parable and appended them below.

Eckhart Tolle:

When you are present in this moment,
you break the continuity of your story, of past and future.

Then true intelligence arises, and also LOVE.

The only way that LOVE can come into your life is not through form,
but through the inner spaciousness that is presence.

LOVE has no form. The world can only change from within.

Mooji:

We are missing what is obvious, what is pure, what is beautiful.  But we don’t have to go so far to find this, because the truth is distance-less, it’s here.  It’s here; it’s only somehow concealed by distraction.  Our eyes move and plant themselves onto transient things.  But if the aspiration is inside a human being to grow, to find the truth, then he will find a way and the way will find him.

Byron Katie:

How do we respond to a world that seems out of control? The world
seems that way because it ‘is’ out of control—the sun rises whether
we want it to or not, the toaster breaks, someone cuts you off on
your way to work. We’ve never had control. We have the illusion of
control when things go the way we think they should, and then when
they don’t, we say we’ve lost control, and we long for some sort of
state where we imagine we’ll have control again.

But suffering isn’t a result of not having control or of things
accelerating. It is a result of arguing with reality. When we
believe our thoughts, we suffer, but when we question them, we don’t
suffer. Freedom is as simple as that. When the unquestioned mind
moves out of its arguments with reality, we move into alignment with
constant change. After all, change is happening anyway, whether we
like it or not. Everything changes, it seems. But when we’re
attached to our thoughts about what that change should be, being out
of control feels uncomfortable.

If there is, in fact, an acceleration of changes, it’s a gift. The
apparent craziness of the world, like everything else, is a gift
that we can use to set our minds free. You can’t free yourself by
finding a “timeless, changeless dimension” outside your own mind.

When you question what you believe, you eventually come to see that
you ‘are’ the timeless, changeless dimension that you’ve been
seeking. Then you may find that you don’t need to navigate a future
at all—that what appears now is all you’ve got, and even that is

always immediately gone. And when you’ve stopped doing war with
reality, you ‘are’ what changes, totally without control. That state
of constant change is creation without limits, efficient and free
and beautiful beyond description.

Insights from the parable Who Knows What’s Good What’s Bad:

This parable is such a beautiful illustration of why it’s relevant to suspend judgment, conclusions and assumptions about anything.  Judgements and the like don’t reflect the bigger picture.  We don’t always know in the heat of any moment, what is good what is bad.  What is a blessing, what is a gift, what is a challenge in the moment that provides further expansion for us later.  We don’t always know, but we can remain open.  We can lay aside the impulse to make any seeming fact mean anything.  We can trust that the nature of all things is continually unfolding – and perhaps find a lot more ease in this open and receptive place.

Those of you who follow this blog, know we recently had a puppy die suddenly in our home.  There was plenty of “this shouldn’t be happening” being felt.  There was so much serendipity around this little guy and his transition.  And while I was grieving I put all my biggest worries on the back burner.  I grieved and to some extent I still do.  But meanwhile, I forgot to take those big worries off the back burner.

Another little baby came to us from a rescue group in SoCal.  That’s Abby Rose you see at the top of this post.

As my friend, Luana reminded me, Life turned left to go right.  Life is actually always turning right, it’s we who have gone left and abandoned the truth that our good is always there, sometimes as yet unseen, but it’s there.  Some times it waits for us to catch up and trust, some times you are scooped up in the arms of grace whether you’d momentarily lost your faith or not.  That’s because another word for Grace is Love, the foundation of the Universe.  I can try to buck that current that is back of all things, but not for long.  Thank God for that!

Below is a link to Mooji’s New Year’s message.  I’ve transcribed a few highlights.

Towards the end of the video he speaks of technology in a way that I applaud.  So many want to slam technology for one reason or another.  Mooji says technology has made the world smaller in a beautiful way, we are becoming more unified and we begin to see that we are One.

Love his perspective, I have always felt that technology has offered a unique means of being in relationship with others.  It takes away from intimate connection or it enhances it, it’s all in how you see it.  I fall on the side of technology enhancing our relationships with each other and therefore humanity overall.

This is not a verbatim highlight transcription but reasonably close to his words:

Something deep in our psyche has always been searching for a joy, stillness, happiness, a contentment that won’t leave, won’t be destroyed, won’t fade.  The opportunity of the human existence is to discover what is eternal inside ourselves because up until now we are only discovering what is transient, what is passing.

There is no vulnerability in the true mind in the true heart.  When you come to the point that you feel that your life is going to burst open, be very present and don’t miss that opportunity.  You feel it as a curse; you don’t see it as a blessing because you identify with a false vulnerability of the self.  “It” is offering a defining moment to split away from what is unreal to find the real. (LOVE!)  As long as you are comfortable with your sense of identity you will not go beyond it and if you don’t go beyond it you will never come into the truth.  There is a time for a human being to know these things and the time to know these things is when you have the power to go beyond these things. (ALSO LOVE!)

When you feel lost, when you feel confused, when you feel helpless, when you feel like you’ve run out of moves, when you feel like your life is on hold, right there, you yourself, become very, very quiet and empty of your own self because the chance is you will meet God in this moment. (LOVE AGAIN!)  You break all the boundaries, if you don’t hold the hand of your mind.

We are missing what is obvious, what is pure, what is beautiful.  But we don’t have to go so far to find this, because the truth is distance-less, it’s here.  It’s here; it’s only somehow concealed by distraction.  Our eyes move and plant themselves onto transient things.  But if the aspiration is inside a human being to grow, to find the truth, then he will find a way and the way will find him.

Happy New Year.  Happy Now Here.
