Limitlessness is the easiest to Live.

Spiritual practice includes investigating the personality character fixations… The wounds of the past and the movements of ego’s wants and desires. We live in a suffering way which gives us a sense of urgency to make changes in our immediate environment, like new lovers, jobs, cars, homes, other possessions, and pleasures. Yet, it is the within which is required.

It is your hurt, your anger, your fear from within. Nothing is outside of oneself no matter how our life experiences ‘appear.’ When we take responsibility for our own feelings, not projecting these on others, there opens the opportunity for them to be released in the non-attachment of ego identification.

Don’t own anything but what is inside you! This is key! It is our desires and attachments to what is outside of us which gets us in so much trouble. Stop the suffering and wake up to your true Nature. (Meanwhile, one can slow down the suffering by practicing acceptance.)

When we see something repeat it self in our life, this is the pattern for which we need to pay very close attention. These are the instructions for all who seek Truth. It is ever more subtle, limitless subtleness, and then some… There is always, ‘and then some…’

Mystery will always remain. LOVE is Limitless. Limitlessness is easiest to Live.

Love is Limitless.

Question: Is the end goal of enlightenment to have no desires or wants or just not the cares and hang ups. I have incredible zen moments meditating, but the more I do, the less I seem to tolerate anything, and everyone seems ridiculous to me, but I feel most ridiculous for allowing them to effect me to even stay in their life. I have had a lot of difficult people in my life… a difficult life, period. It [has] taught me great things. But functioning in this world dealing with people is getting harder not easier. I’m not saying I’m any better for my knowing. I think it’s harder in most ways to know.

There are parts of Buddhist mentality that seem bipolar, but there must be a balance. To me, balance is key to anything. Not good or bad though bad seems to be prevalent.

Bearji: There is no goal of enlightenment. Enlightenment is what Is, what is simply being natural, Nature Itself. Being. Nothing else. This is what is discovered when everything else is taken away.

Spiritual practice includes investigating the personality character fixations… The wounds of the past and the movements of ego’s wants and desires. We live in a suffering way which gives us a sense of urgency to make changes in our immediate environment, like new lovers, homes, cars, other possessions, and pleasures. Yet, it is the changes within which is required.

So often I find that when we start doing our inner work, it is so easy to see the woundedness and unconsciousness of others around us. Yes, indeed, this is the mirror and what you need to see in you! So it is excellent to feel something, but feeling ridiculous is not going to serve anyone well at all. Unless… you simply accept feeling ridiculous and not make it a bad thing! Allow these feelings to guide you, give gratitude to ridiculousness, then it will serve you in not being attached to the definition of ‘ridiculous.’ This will help lead you into releasing other ego attachments.

Any feeling which is not of Happiness is an arrow on where you need to look. Hurt, anger, fear? X marks the stop! These are your feelings; no other can make you feel this way, as, at the highest level, there is no ‘other.’

It is your hurt, your anger, your fear from within. Nothing is outside of oneself no matter how our life experiences ‘appear.’ When we take responsibility for our own feelings, not projecting these on others, there opens the opportunity for them to be released in the non-attachment of ego identification.

Incredible Zen moments sounds like what I call ‘glimpses.’ When we have a true ‘glimpse,’ there is no turning back. This can be a time when one recognizes how everything in their life is not serving their deepening of this awakening glimpse. As we all deepen into our insights, ah-ha moments, insight meditation, and other ways of practicing and living a spiritual life, we will continue to have fresh new choices to make.

Accept it all! Accept it all as to make whatever comes next into or out of your life, easy and filled with a higher understanding and awareness. If someone is upset with your actions or non-actions, of your choices to deepen spiritually, let them be upset. That is their work to do.

Don’t own anything but what is inside you! This is key! It is our desires and attachments to what is outside of us which gets us in so much trouble. Stop the suffering and wake up to your true Nature. Meanwhile, one can slow down the suffering by practicing acceptance.

There are two stories which come to mind, one being about MOVING away from the source of what is in the way of your deepening. And, the one that simply sits with what is and says, “We’ll see.’

Just remember, no matter what the choice, the forces of Karma will follow. Until one is fully enlightened, karma continues to work to make you focus your attention on what is NOT suffering. This is also the Grace of Love.

Be still, be open and available for the ego to burn in the fire of awakening. Then, nothing matters. Even if you let it matter. As it’s now all God, all Love, being Self-aware.

One last thought for you (and all who may read this…) If some of Buddism seems to be ‘bi-polar,’ then I would say two things. If something you know has worked well for someone else, or even millions of others, like Buddism, and it seems to not be a fit for you, don’t force it. The “Way” is your life. Take another step. I continue to grow each and every time I read the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu. I personally like the translations and edit work of Steven Mitchell’s book. This is the Way of Balance. Ease, and Grace.

Secondly, and for all to remember, when we see something repeat it self in our life, this is the pattern for which we need to pay very close attention.

So if you keep finding what appears to be some ‘bi-polar’ teachings, then accept that you may want to look deeper even into the choice of words the Universe is putting in your mouth. Just saying. I have seen this a thousand times where our choice of words in that moment, point to what is under the meaning of the words about ourselves.

These are the instructions for all who seek Truth. It is ever more subtle, limitless subtleness, and then some… There is always, ‘and then some…’ This is the goal! Mystery will always remain. LOVE is limitless.

~Bearji

The Practice.

Investigate your ego attachments to beliefs. This is where you focus on your personal growth, spiritual expansion, and limitless evolution as a spiritual being.

How do you free yourself from such bondage? Respond in the present moment from a position of trust in the Divine by being empty and open. Drop for just an instant the foundation of ego in a time of not knowing anything about who you think you are. Cut out the story of why you are suffering for a split second and be still. These are the ego identifications in the way of your Self-recognition of who you really are. This stillness, which the silence of Mystery Itself, is at the core of everything that exists. This Still-Silent-One-Mind Awareness is experienced as Love Itself. Love is the glue of the Universe, it penetrates and receives, binding together all form.

When the artificial ego filters of perception are dropped, all of Empty Clear Light is realized as Self. The so-called reality is revealed to be false. This opens the opportunity for the end of suffering and the beginning of living a spiritual life of peace and freedom. With having no attachments, living with acceptance, being One with the present moment as Awareness Itself, you are That which is the LOVE and attracting force of Creation. This becomes LIVING the Bliss of Union. It is not about being in love and bliss; it is Being Love and Bliss. Life becomes an expression of giving and receiving compassion and loving kindness. This is living the Grace of Being.

Ask yourself now, “Who am I?” and then be very very still… In the Silence, experience the Fire of Ramana, burn up in the Fire of Creation, in what is the non-answer!

Being empty and open becomes all that is ever Full! Holy beyond compare!

Excerpt and edited from a post dated yesterday, titled, ‘Burning for Love. Creation Myth Q&A with Bearji’

The Wild Man Monk visiting Maui for a year. I was there mostly for Satsang with Gangaji. This was after spending nearly 4 months in Silence transcribing and editing the Silent retreat of which I had attended in Brientenbush, OR in October of 1994… This is about April of 1995… I’m 41.

Burning for Love – and Creation Myth with Bearji

Question: What I still do not understand is … We are all of death. Okay- if you have realized that we are not bodies, then it is just an illusion and yet … Why at all this veil of illusion?

The fact is that we are not leaving our bodies at the same time and that we will have a time of separation physically, the illusion of separation in itself makes no sense to me why this can not be seen?

I know that death does not separate. I know that one remains connected in love – I still do not understand why all the theater? All the dramas? Did you figure it out? Can you tell me something?

Your “S”

Bearji: It’s all about the big bang! The cosmic orgasm of creation!

First I have to say, that no matter what the words which are about to appear as I write this, no words can touch the Truth inside my answer.

Knowledge and understanding are limited. You, as all of us, must find out for yourself in your own direct experience of what is within you, as that which desires the Truth of Being. This happens when one finally stops the search, including the asking of questions. This is a mind created concept. Yet, a good one, as this is getting closer to the one question that is actually worth asking, “Who am I?”

Secondly, all appearances in this world, in this life, in mind, in the pain and the bliss, are just that, ‘appearances.’ One must take their awareness off of appearances for just the time it takes for a twinkling of the eye which seeks.

BUT… Since I (I) like (LOVE) to entertain myself (YOU) with creative word-songs to attempt to find yet more ways to point to the True Nature of Being… Let’s see what happens.

Oh… for all who are wondering. My job is to be Still, have an empty mind and just listen to you. Whatever comes next, is all natural, organic, spontaneous heart expressions. Can I be reactive? You Bet! But this is the intention of this Guru, Be Still and let Truth speak for itself! Whatever you do, please let it be your own investigation of the words I use, which are pointing to what’s under there reference points. Words are mere reference points when speaking of the mysteries which cannot be spoken. (I am compelled to qualify these following concepts…)

It seemingly takes two truths to make a non-truth of duality. Imagine an empty Oneness which splits from itself to find itself. This Oneness is Awareness Itself and has all its unlimited power, intelligence, and imagination to create a mirror as to find Itself. This is simply now entertainment for Awareness to become even more Self-Aware. Imagine for a moment, that this is the seed which becomes the deepest question inherent in all conscious hearts, “Who am I?” This question, brought to us by the Grace of Ramana Maharshi, IS Creation, the force of which is limitless.

Imagine that somehow conscious awareness split from itself to recognize itself, creating a duality illusion out of empty Oneness. Because of this split from itself, this individual consciousness has a never-ending attraction to find itself; this attraction was born into it in the original birth of ego. Thus positive and negative energy comes from the void of consciousness, which creates this duality illusion. The creation of the physical realm is the source of our illusion. In that instant ego was also born.

This attraction has a great force behind it like two magnets pulling the polarities towards each other. These are now positive and negative energies with an equal and endless attraction for each other. This is how I say, ‘Love is the glue of the Universe, it penetrates and receives, binding together all form.’

Love is what holds the universe together. This includes playing itself out as Masculine and Feminine energy, good and evil, light and shadow, heavens and hells, mystic realms, transcendental realms and fields, and the manifest earth realm. Yin/Yang. Balance is the ‘Way’ I say, to peace on earth!

One night when I was contemplating this mythological story I just typed above, I realized that this is the story of Adam and Eve. They were thrown out of the Garden of Eden. They were thrown out of the ‘field of unity’ into the world of suffering.

What I am sharing above is part of my ‘realized’ Creation Myth! [It was more like a vision when I felt all of this which I have called my creation myth.] Creation myths are found in all traditions going back to the earliest SUN worship.

First, there was nothing, what is before creation, then out of nothing, this self-arising expanse of LOVE, became the physical world and all the expressions of Beauty, seeking and finding LOVE. Thus, all the theater, the drama, comedy, tragedy, and Bliss of living and loving. (Entertainment.) The Divine Play. Leela.

The incarnate realm offers the possibility for the appearance of duality. As long as there is attention and attachment to the physical realm, there is an opportunity for misidentification of the ego. The attachments are reference points which the ego uses for comparisons and identifications. Ego sees only objects, it takes the Heart to see its reflection in everything.

So again, I’ll remind everybody; we are walking, talking individuals who with our distinct ego personalities, cause suffering for ourselves and others. Nevertheless, God is revealing the path to non-suffering in every moment through our expressions and reflections of ourselves and of each other; meaning our experiences of love AND suffering in all life situations and circumstances. This suffering happens with ego and its beliefs. These are the identifications of the ego. Being still, dropping the life story, and feeling our feelings fully are some of the tools we have for losing our ego identifications.

When you find yourself reacting to something or someone, when you experience emotional suffering, you are simply being shown what you are identifying with, which ends up in the simplest terms, being hurt, anger, and/or fear of the ego personality fixations. Under hurt, anger, and fear is more fear. So it all ends in fear. This core fear ultimately comes from the fear of death, which you will see if you truly investigate your ego beliefs and strategies in life.

Thoughts of the past, the unsatisfactory life we’re living, all the desires for happiness, and the always looming and impending DEATH, are Grace Itself lighting the path to where there are no thoughts, no past, no future, no birth and no death. Only Now Awareness.

I listen to those who try and tell me they have no fear of death. I say to you, ‘perhaps.’ Be True to Truth by being down to the bone honest with yourself. No one else needs to know your inner truth but you and God. We were born to die, death will not be denied!

Investigate your ego beliefs. This is where you focus on your personal growth, spiritual expansion, and limitless evolution as a spiritual being.

How do you free yourself from such bondage? Respond in the moment from a position of trust in the Divine by being empty and open. Drop for just an instant the foundation of ego in a moment of not knowing anything. Cut out the story of why you are suffering for a split second and be still. This stillness is the silence of Mystery at the core of everything that exists in all realms.

Freedom is being truly honest with yourself. All artificial filters of perception are removed. The so-called reality is revealed to be false. You drop to your knees and bow, as the play is now over.

This opens the opportunity for freedom in having no attachments, being One with the present moment as Awareness Itself. Mystery is where there are no answers, as there are no questions. You are already That which is the Love and attracting force of Creation. This becomes the Bliss of Union.

Imagine when the attracting forces of Awareness finally meet! The ‘veil’ of the Beloved is lifted… Only the sounds of Bliss can be heard in this all powerful spontaneous orgasmic experience…

A Big Bang indeed!

Mystery, Mystery, Mystery… Where there is no ‘Who’ to care about any such self-inquiry questions.

Ask yourself now, “Who am I?” and experience the Fire of Ramana, burn up in the Fire of Creation, in the non-answer!

Burning for Love, Bearji

The call of Love and the Bliss of Union.

CR: What happens when you keep loving and loving, but no love returns to you?

Bearji: It will be my pleasure to answer your question my dear, but I want to ask first, what LOVE are you speaking of? Is this romantic Love? Or the Love of which is the source of Being Love?

CR: Romantic Love, friendship love.

Bearji: This is what I thought you meant… 

There is this wonderful story Gangaji shares about one of her experiences with Papaji while she was in India. During one gathering a reporter had asked a question… ‘If one lived above a car repair shop, and could never find peace in meditation from all the banging, banging, banging, and horrible smells coming from below nearly 20 hours a day… What are the instructions, the discipline, for this person to find the Peace and Love within?

Papaji put the question to the students to answer. Many contemplated on this and came up with answers and quotes from other teachers. Papaji rejected them all. Finally, the reporter asked with a longing heart for this wisdom, urging a solution. Papaji said, “MOVE.”

I am aware you have a serious question, but bringing some joy and the simplest answer can find its way to an ah-ha moment.

We are all conditioned to understand and believe life to be just as it appears to us. Why not, right? This is the experience… Yet, we all see our personalized world through the colored filters of perception from these beliefs and so-called understandings, the source being ONLY from our conditioned existence. This conditioning begins at birth, and now we are all acting out, and interacting with other very particular personalities all as conditioned functioning adults.

The learned behavior is to attract people into our lives which fit with our conditioned understanding. I have heard from others who stated, ‘First I married my ‘mother,’ and then later I married my ‘father.’ Meaning, they were attached to what’s familiar, fell in love and married the same dysfunctioning personalities as both of their parents. (This wasn’t me, no… no… ah, crap… It was me.)

Upon this recognition, one may consider new choices. [Yes, that’s right, we must laugh at ourselves.]

So here is the opportunity. This is the invitation of Love Itself for you to choose, to see and accept. All of the forces of Karmic conditioning point us, invites us, to take our awareness out of ego mind and into the Love of the Heart. The point of integration with the One Heart. Take the opportunity right now. The NOW, now, not tonight now, or tomorrow now, or as soon as I get what I want as fast as I TRY harder NOW. Yes… right now. Just STOP all effort of mind.

And if it requires for you to get away from the source of noise in your head means for you to relocate where your Heart resides, then PERFECT. A fresh new choice begins the fresh new path to what Love truly is.

I would advise that taking time for yourself, being alone for a while, especially if one can live alone, would indeed be the best medicine for healing your heart and bearing in Light.

We are all an attracting force for Love. Romantic and friendship Love and what is revealed upon actual co-existing unconditional Loving.

Be still, my dear. Trust love to guide you, but remind yourself to your very last breath of loving life, to be mindful of Love’s ever so subtle invitations. The call to deepening in Loves Grace never ends. This is the Bliss of Union. As a line in a Rumi poem states, ‘Even on the grave of a holy man, the holy man turns his hands and face towards the Light.’

All In Love, Bearji

Doing or not-doing?

Dear Master,
I am thankful you answered my question, it might be helpful for me, I read your answer, again and again, to understand it better.

I am not a wise person and not have [the] wisdom to realize the truth, your awakening experience is your own, how you got this?

As you told, everyone can awaken and connect with supreme, but still, [the] question is remain how? Any method, any practice? [I] want a very practical help, yes I am searching the real joy, fulfillment, and satisfaction, there is any practice you found really work with anyone?

I know, might be you think, I am bothering you, but sir, [I] want help, please describe the practice method. How can I realize the [‘]I am lion’s child, not a donkey[‘], your advice?

It’s [a] pleasure to read you[‘re answer] as you said, if I find love in myself, I can go in that direction, but how?

You said, you and me not separated, you [are] me and me [are] you… It’s your words. This showed you are connected with existence… it’s your experience. How can I make it my experience?
Very honestly, I feel my life is going in waste and ruin, please, show me the light of truth. I know, you can’t do this for me, but you can tell me about tools with I can find the reality.

Wait for something or do something? What will you suggest?
Waiting for awake or I should do something for it?
You say about love, but it does not have a drop in my life.

Bearji: Doing and non-doing have been part of the spiritual debate since the beginning of time.

My dear friend, I hear and feel the urgency in your voice, so I must first tell you, that even after a spiritual awakening, life’s challenges do not stop. Until one is a fully enlightened Buddha, Karma continues to move with a grand force and intelligence. It is how one meets whatever arises or falls away while living a spiritual life in the present moment. Being pure awareness Itself, no attachments, no desires for more, and no horror of our past to influence our actions or non-actions.

I’m not a meditation teacher. It is not my job to add more ‘doing.’ My teachings show you where your resistance is held close, hidden and defended by ego. I show you what to release and how to stop doing. I am a final teacher, one who tells you to STOP all methods and practices as what you seek is not outside of you. Finally one must be TRULY still. The mind must reach the point of no return and surrender completely. These are the words I used in my last reply to you…

I will tell you again what serves all of us, and that is to BE STILL and seek the answers from within your Heart. That this is what you can trust, as it is the Love that is at the core of Silence Itself which will offer you guidance, especially during a life crisis or urgency.

I have told others that when life appears to be falling apart, let it! Here is where you will discover what Life is trying to reveal to you. As when any of us try to struggle against the force of everything that exists, we will lose. You will lose the struggle. This doesn’t mean to give up! It means to PAY ATTENTION to even the most subtle messages in your heart.

There is no losing in surrendering to Love. BE STILL.

Now, I can share that one of the beginning practices that served me is the easiest of all. Simply follow your own breath as your body breathes in and out. Nothing more is needed right now. Just notice your breathing. When the mind wanders, gently bring your awareness back to your breathing. RELAX too! Relaxing the body relaxes the mind. Read sacred text, pray, do yoga, sit with a local meditation teacher. Whatever you feel so moved to do is all being on the PATH. It is just being on the path with an open heart and intention to heal and awaken which will serve you best. Have patience. Treat yourself and others with kindness. The action of compassion and loving kindness is as much of a teacher as any other.

Again, if there are issues in your life situations and circumstances which threaten your survival needs, the answer is to pay attention to that! Then you may be quiet, stop all the mind’s urgency. Be still and allow life with no attachments. Meaning living with acceptance is freedom from struggle and deeper suffering.

For one to recognize they are a lion and not a donkey, is to release the ego’s attachments to who and what you think you are or are not! These are the conditionings of being raised by donkey parents and influenced by a donkey’s environment… Be still in quiet reflection, see yourself as what is the LOVE which is at the core of Silence. What is under all the donkey ego beliefs. Be completely still, as it is this silence, which lies at the Heart of everything that exists, which is the attracting force for the Lion to swallow you whole. Then, you will wake-up and roar!

Finding this Love will then be your guiding Light of Truth for whatever is next in Living a spiritual life.

You have to make the choices of doing or not doing. I can only point. What does your own Heart tell you right now?

Bless you, sir; I’ll hold some good thoughts for you.

All Love, Bearji

Your Heart is backed by the fire of Clear Being.

Your Heart is backed by the fire of Clear Being. ~Bearji

Indeed we can feel COOKED at times by the forces of life situations and circumstances… But our Heart Longing for God to free us from this Hell on Earth is backed by an even Higher force.

The Fire of Creation Itself, and the wisdom of Clear Light. Living in the present moment, your heart is backed by the Fire of Clear Being… Your Heart takes over and allows your ego mind to relax. -Bearji

Do we choose or do we lead?

Q: Do we choose … or are we lead…? … this may or may not be the difference in the synchronicity of flow … or the flow of synchronicity…

Bearji: The only REAL choice we have is to awaken. At the core, there is only One Being, so being responsible for ‘YOU,’ being in the present moment of experience, is being where there is nothing to choose, no one to lead, and no one to ask any questions.

Spontaneous creative movement of the present moment becomes one movement with your own action or non-action. Creation Itself is not separate from what or how you intuitively express your own Love. This is the awareness of pure mindfulness.

Your Heart is backed by the fire of Clear Being.

One of my favorite lines out of one of my favorite Rumi poems is:

‘Everywhere is falling Everywhere… Nothing else to do…’

~Bearji

PS. 24 years ago, and for the next few years, while sharing a home and my life with someone, I used this line as an answer to ALL of whatever challenges in my life that would appear.

My mantra was ‘Everywhere is falling Everywhere.’ I just comically accepted and then answered the universe with whatever or however my heart felt so moved!

Then I would say, ‘Nothing Else to do!’ -LOL-

Love is Trustworthy. 

Finally, there comes the point in one’s life where enough is really, and truly, at last, enough! When this moment appears in your life, just for an instant, let go of all ego knowing. Not know what or who you think you are, AND who you think you are NOT.

Be still and be available to listen to the silent wisdom, what is that little small ‘voice’ deep within your heart. This is a point of integration, if you will, to That which we all seek as what is behind the name and idea of the word God.

Love is the glue which is the attracting force of the universe. So it is this Love in your heart, no matter how tiny you think it might be, is what you can trust. Love is trustworthy.

Trust Love. As within all ideas of what Love is or is not, there is a place of quiet mind and no identification. Ego cannot attach to what is Gods True Love. Ego has no power to try to make Love do what it wants it to do. Love is Freedom from all desires and peaceful living no matter what arises or falls away in life.

Be still, listen to your Heart. When it feels of Love, move in that direction.

~Bearji

When it feels of Love, move in that direction.

FB friend Question: Respected sir, I am from India, I like to read your every post as I know you are a real teacher of life, and you touched the life’s [of] so many. And have much experience, it’s your kindness you are here for all those need guidance. I also need to know; I don’t know meaning of my life, I am depressed from my life, there is goal, no achievement, no success, no value, I haven’tanything… please guide me, how and what to do in life? I know you are much busy in your life, and you are a celebrity, my respect to you with my heart… if possible guide me, angel.

Bearji: Welcome friend…

First I need to say to you and to all who read these words, that I am not an angel, I am certainly not a celebrity of any sort. I AM YOU. We are not separate in anyway, shape, color, or form. Thoughts of being less than or more than any other object in ones life experience is false thinking. A trap of ego mind which is only to create suffering, low self-worth, depression, and even the loss of meaning in one’s life.

I cannot speak to the meaning of your life, my friend, but I can speak to the meaning of life. It is simply to awaken from the dream, being the illusion we are all separate from God.

Awakening can and does happen in a fraction of an instant in the silent mind of not knowing what ego thinks or wants to think. So the guidance to everyone will always remain the same. “BE STILL.”

It is as easy as it sounds. But there is SEEMINGLY a high wall of resistance protecting the ego’s mighty castle where ego hides deep within the dungeon and torture chambers beneath. Ironically the ego keeps within its own personalized prison in fear for its life. In this darkness, ideas of despair, shame, low self-worth, depression and worse can grow like a wild and deadly fungus.

I tell you now to trust what I say when I point to this word, “IDEAS.” And that ideas can change.

All of what you shared today are only the present moment IDEAS of what your ego mind thinks about you and your life. This will change. These concepts of ego are easy to change by just dangling a fresh new identification out in front of its eyes as you grow. “I’m now practicing healing practices instead of woundedness.” – “I’m the wounded healer becoming of myself.” – “I am ‘That’ which I seek.” The ego will attach itself to anything.

The ego, being the source of suffering, is just doing its job as your personality to co-create all these suffering ideas. Along with the powerful and spontaneous force of the intelligence of Karma, life situations and circumstances provide everything else anyone could possibly dream, AND THEN SOME, to push a human to either madness or to seek Truth.

Madness meaning how we respond or not respond to our own inner call for healing and freedom. Some may choose a life of drugs, alcohol and unkindly behavior to numb themselves. You are seeking TRUTH. Good job! Very good!

Finally, there comes the point in one’s life where enough is really, and truly, at last, enough!

For myself and many I have heard from, it appears some of us have to take it to where we have hit bottom for the hundredth time AFTER we have already told everyone we know, ‘This time I mean it, enough is enough!’

So instead of beating the wall of resistance down, imagine you might simply dig in deep to the core of the hidden torture chambers to bring in some fresh new Light.

Meaning, just for an instant, not know what you think you are and who you think you are NOT. Remember, you are me, and I am you, and if I can awaken to the Grace of Being, you can too.

Now as far as you and how you live your life, in your country and particular culture in your country, and for anyone else around the world, the only guidance I can say is to follow what is that little small voice deep within your heart. This is a point of integration, if you will, to That which we all seek as what is behind the name and idea of the word God.

Now, of course, you must pay attention to your well being, and thus ask for help if and when you need it. I ended up homeless once, and it wasn’t a problem as I didn’t make it one. I had a tent and a small amount of food from the local shelter. I had the basic survival needs met. And I trusted the Love that I am, that I recognized within me, so I had no fear as I held my best intention and worked with will to manifest a new life.

Love is the glue which is the attracting force of the universe. So it is this Love in your heart, no matter how tiny you think it might be, is what you can trust. Love is trustworthy. Hold your focus out of mind and in your Heart awareness of what Love is. It cannot be known, but it can be experienced in this silence and then lived in the present moment no matter life situations and circumstances.

Trust Love. As within all ideas of what Love is or is not, there is a place of no identification. Ego cannot attach to what is Gods Love. Meaning, ego has no power to try to make Love do what it wants it to do. Love is Freedom. This is Peace.

Be still, listen to your Heart. When it feels of Love, move in that direction. Even a first step away from what is not love is a beginning.

Best wishes to you friend, Bearji
