Digging in to the truth of who we are allows us to fully embody our being. Notice we are animated from within by the breath of life.
I imagine the search could seem complicated, and allowing yourself to settle within the concept: I am the one I've been waiting for kind of idea, you know, we are the ones we've been waiting for. is very supportive idea for me, it's scary in a way to say "who me? Oh, no!" kind of, kind of thing. And it has really turned out to be true in a lot of ways, for me over many different aspects of my life. So the, the search continues for, as I hear you saying, and the invitation to allow the search to come from within with your own superpowers and your own gifts to the world. And certainly keep listening to the great masters and the the people who have recognized the truth of who we are in the, in this lifetime. What's coming up, for me is the the concept of being grounded within the search itself and within the work of moving forward in the processes. A lot of things can come up, and if, if we stay grounded, then whatever comes up is simply something that we notice on the on the, like, outside of us, so to speak, or within the hologram of the game that we're playing. We can remain grounded in the self for the duration of however long that lasts within within the vision of our life there. So just to get started, May I invite you to feel this physical body and feel it sitting relaxed in your chair or in in your seat. Just fully embodying your body. Noticing it has been breathing this entire time. That breathing is there to serve you as you share your gifts with the world. Allowing the entire space around you to support your being noticing your breathing. noticing the thoughts that may come up, just allow them to go by allow this present moment to expand. As Alan Watts has said many times the moment on our clock is measured with a hair line, second hand and we We tend to think of this present moment as a miniscule, tiny fraction. My invitation to you is to allow this moment of Now to begin to open. So it's actually beyond time, this moment of now, Allow your sense of this moment, the sense of your being to gently expand. expanding in space, expanding in time, recognizing it's all the same stuff, this space time. So the projection that we see around us, appears to be external to our bodies and our experience. Actually, we include it. Notice what it's like to literally include time and space within your being. From this perspective, all of timespace becomes very small as we see from a grander perspective. Imagine coming back, focusing more on your physical body. Whereas you include all of time space, your physical body is included within space time. Allow yourself to bring your focus back to your physical body gently. Slowly coming in to your physical body, noticing the difference in perspective of the physical body being inside space time versus our true nature including space time itself. As you re embody your physical body in this moment, notice some of the thoughts and ideas that you've had planned for yourself been wanting to do, whether they're well fleshed out, or still exploring and moving forward. Take a moment to write down some of those that come to mind. Some ideas you've wanted to do. You may have one big one that's very clear, or few options like a to do list. Anything is okay.
(pause for writing)
Allow your allow your list to come to completion and find one topic to focus on for a little discussion. The idea of digging into this one topic. What are some things that you may have to let go of in your life in order to fully embrace this topic? To fully bring it into your life?
(fifteen minute discussion of above question)
And simply the the practice of meditating, whether it's 15 minutes per day, or one minute, 15 times per day, This concept of meditation is simply being with myself for this moment. And it doesn't have to take us a long or a whole elaborate arrangement. But even in any moment, just be with yourself, and then forget about it. "Ah, that's right." And just be with this help at any time. It's like a continuous meditation. Anytime you forget, just bring your focus back. And notice. And it's a continuous process.
Having the idea of your your list or the item on your list there, noticing the parts of you who are already connected with this item. parts of you that are already connected or optimized. breathing into those parts of your optimal self. These are your superpowers we've talked about before. We have many superpowers. We breathe into the ones that are aligned with this particular topic. Those parts of us that are already well established. Simple for us to do. Breathe into those and allow their strength to expand within your being bringing online other parts of yourself that may not have had as much practice Allow your well developed parts to offer energy to the parts that may desire more energy as the infinite power of the universe animates. Allow this animation to expand to all parts of your being. Blessing all parts of yourself activating all parts of yourself really digging in to the truth of who you are. An infinite being having this experience within a physical body. The ego has ideas about what needs to be fixed, what needs to be corrected. Recognize everything is perfect. Everything is correct. Simply allowing yourself to consciously feel the being. This being is your groundedness is your ultimate anchor. Let your consciousness shine like a light within your being and your light shining out for other people to see. As you settle fully into your being allowing your being to effortlessly express itself within the world. Allowing your work to energize you feeling excited as you in body more and more of your being continuing to take moments to notice your being allow this to become a regular practice. Oh yeah, here I am. In a moment, we will come back into a speaking mode. Just feel this experience now in this moment as your awareness is failing more of your being As you are aware of more of your being. Allow yourself to take a mental note or a mental snapshot of this feeling. So you can refer to it at any point teller becomes second nature to simply be in full embodiment. allowing a few more breaths at your own pace. Simply notice your body breathing itself. As you notice your Being being itself Reinforce this mental snapshot of this experience. Keep it in your proverbial back pocket. So you can call it up at any time begin to re embody the physical bodies I welcome you back into this shared space.
