"You are really in search of yourself without knowing it. You are the love, longing for the love,worthy, perfectly lovable." -S.N GoenkaThe simplicity of becoming an observer within yourself can set you free. Very simple, daily practices can help us on this journey of creating internal space. For instance, in Zen Buddhism they teach to just do one thing at a time. While we are washing the dishes, can we truly be engaged in the behaviour of washing the dishes? That is our homework my friends. Let us do one thing at a time, take deep breaths and truly ARRIVE with embodied presence! The answers are close than we think. Shine on!
Conditioning of Unworthiness
The deep rooted conditioning of unworthiness keeps us in the race. We are always trying to arrive somewhere. Many of us are skimming along the surface of life, never slowing down long enough to truly arrive! The practice of stepping outside of our ideas and concepts to feel our bodies in any given moment is called an embodied presence. Only from this space can we embrace or even grasp the love that exudes from the centre of our being. If we live our lives in a trance, just 'getting by' everyday than we miss the truth; being that, what we long for the most is already here. I invite you to take one breath in your day and check-in with yourself, "What was today really like?" Be careful not to add judgement, this process if about creating space between our truth and our cycling thoughts. We can listen to our fears, emotions or thoughts without becoming them. This deep, compassionate listening will bring us to a place of wholeness. If we can create a moment of internal space than an unfathomable amount of love will fill us.
