Receive the Gift

Reading time less than 1 minute

During spiritual Awakening there will come the glimpse of direct experience of formless Being. The spaciousness Which We Are beyond name-body, thought-feeling and all manifest objects of form.

The ego will do what it naturally does, it will attempt to cover up spaciousness with thought. This is our gifted opportunity to recognize That, from where Peace comes.

Gently recognize the arrival of thought, "What is this?", as mind attempts to objectify and explain. Allow thought to pass by. Watch the stillness of Being arise, again.

If fear arises, acknowledge the feeling and allow it to pass. Return to Stillness. Feel Its Peace without turning away.

The ego will protest, "...it's too big". Acknowledge the thought and allow it to pass. Rest. Breathe. Allow.

More thoughts may come, "yeah, it's peaceful but so what? What good is this peace, "I" can't do anything with it!" This will be the ego's hook trying to draw attention back to thought. It's looking at peace as an object to be used without directly experiencing it.

Who is the "I" which wants to do something with This which it calls peace? The false self concept of egoic mind that thinks it is a "doer" is attached to the movement of mind which expresses energetically through "doing". Not "wrong", just habitual. For this one moment, allow it to pass.

See. Awareness will allow the "doer" thought to pass. Breathe, wait. Being will arise, again. Being never tires of offering Its gift.

The resistance may continue, "...but this is so b-o-r-i-n-g!"
Allow it to pass, rest in the stillness. "This is empty, just a big bunch of nothing-ness!"
Allow it to pass. Breathe.
Open to the vastness of it and drop directly down into It.

When received, the gift will swallow all questions, all thoughts.
As energy is pulled from mind into the inner heart or depth of Being, the mind comes to rest. Mind's energy is reabsorbed into the innermost sacred chamber of Being.

No more thought, no more separation into "I", just the wholeness of peace that can't be contained by the letters p, e, a, c, e but can be directly experienced.

It is no-thing, but is it nothing? Is It enough? What could "doing" add to This?

This gift is always Here, Now.
It can be received over and over, again, for It expands through each willing reception.

With You as Awakening Unfolds
