There comes to mind the story of a man that had all that he wanted just for the asking. In the end his money corrupted him and he was not happy. He became so intoxicated by it and the power it brought to him. Caught up in a cycle of wanton greed that he forsook all others and all self. Lost in a sea of torment the man languished and died far too young.
The man didn’t realize that power doesn’t lie in the here and now, it runs rampant. The here and now is the only thing that can be changed. Not the moments past or the moments to come. Those cannot be controlled. It is only in the here and now that we can altar our path.
Living in the moment is difficult to achieve. It’s like trying to walk in a dream, if you’re conscious of it, it won’t happen. Truth is where you seek, that truth that has been with you all along. Truth is love and one with the divine. It is the essence of all things, separated no more. Oneness means together as one. To be as one with all things and see them for what they really are. See them as the same, equal, with no differences at all.
See the world through nondualistic eyes where there is no reason to judge, because there is nothing to judge. No good or evil, no right or wrong, just a simple thing called oneness. With oneness there is no me. even though I very much know I am. No one will know this kind of oneness without doing some work. Not work in the traditional sense, but more or a mental and spiritual workout.
Take the time to be alone where you can meditate and become aware of the stillness that resides within each of us. Follow your breath and then match that breathing with the universe. Everything breathing together as one and then you see it. The truth, the love and how everything is one and the same. That energy is the same as that energy, which is just like that energy over there.
We, however, would rather think that we are separate. I’m inside my head and you’re inside yours. It is not the head that contains the mind you want to listen to. Deep within is another mind. A mind that already knows the truth of the awakened. A mind that is enlightened, seeing what really is and how it really is. A mind focused on knowing the truth of what is. A mind wanting to know truth.
