Close your eyes and feel your self. What is going on inside? Do you feel tension? Pain? Hurt? Stress? Nothing? Racing thoughts? Troublesome emotions? Anticipation? Love and Peace? What are you experiencing? Don't change anything just notice what you are feeling. You are the infinite energy of Being and always will be. We are using this moment to get a snapshot of how you are choosing to use your clear explosive energy of Bliss and Love. This is the world you are creating. No one else is creating it but you. You are the only one inside of you. Why is it important to look? Because at one time what ever you are feeling now made sense. You created habits of tension, stress, anxiety, etc because you love yourself and it was protective and adaptive at one time. Now that you are stopping and looking you have an opportunity to see if it still serves you. Is it what you want today? You can update your files and make them current. Notice how you treat yourself and others. Are you ever harsh? That's you doing that so you can stop and begin to treat yourself in a way that feels better and that is aligned with the qualities of Being that you are discovering in meditation. Adi Shankara, the 8th century Indian saint who consolidated Advaita Vedanta said that the infinite and the world are one. The world is not an illusion but is experience as a delusion. Awakening is coming to clear seeing and from there, clear experiencing and relating. We are addressing awakening on many levels because it is happening on many levels. Sometimes it is best to step out of the way of the bus. Let's begin to love our personalities and love others through them because we are Love and that is what feels best. Because it is real. The next podcast is a short meditation to put into experience these principles.
