Letters to a Beloved Young Heart
Everything passes, nothing stays the same. Stay close to your inner Being, your Great Heart. This modern society is mad. It drives every individual mad in some way. It disconnects us from our own body, it disconnects us from our roots in Nature. Take as much time as you can to really listen…to really hear your Life…the Life of You. Cultivate your own unique human-ness. This society seems hell bent on not letting anyone deeply listen to their Great Being.
You have come here at the Call and Will of Your Divine Being and, when we adhere and obey that Divine Will, we strengthen the Will – the Real Will-Power. So, what is Free-Will? Perhaps we will discover that Free Will is the Will of Life. I suggest that the ego-mind creates the notion of its own free-will in order to pursue its own process, a process disconnected from the Process of Life. The mind wants to be a process in its own life, its own separate and alternate reality.
Un-enlightenment is our withdrawal from the Process of Life.
The Practice of Spiritual Life is the continuing submission of the ego-mind into the Process of Life and the Process of Life is uncertain; it is moment-to-moment unknown, always vital, wondrous, changing, evolving and ablaze with mystery. You are that Process.
However most people want certainty, they are afraid of the unknown, they want things organized “properly” and to have things come out “right”. We allow fear of the unknown to create something not quite in alignment with the full Realisation of Life.
To discover means to go into the unknown, to go where it is not safe, to begin to make peace with the unknown rather than pretending you want to discover but fundamentally wanting to know what your mind wants to know, what you want to hear, what you want to happen. In that case you want the apparent certainty of knowing, not discovering. You do not want to submit to the Process of Life; it is too unsafe for the ego-mind. You want the safety of hiding in the mind while feigning all the “right and proper” behaviour in order to get the personal mind’s desired outcome.
Oh, we may very well be able to negotiate an agreement or contract for personal safety with others in our usual relationships or workshop/retreat/meditation course but such a contract with Life is not possible. Most people, most of the time, want to stay in their comfort zone - in the contrived safety of superficial certainty. Such a one wants to create an artificial certainty wherein all their best-made personal secular and spiritual aspirations will come true. The mind does not want to be confronted by the Process of Life, the Process of the Body. It is the mind, the ego “I” that wants to orchestrate its own enlightenment.
Be Awake with Me.
What do I want with you?
I would like you to be thoroughly and beautifully human.
Do not rely on conditions or another for your happiness or your purpose in this Life.
Reliance on the approval of another and the love of another weakens the Will of Life in your body/mind.
Be Awake to the Life that Lives you and Guides you and IS you. Love the Process of Life so much that you begin to value True Freedom (not needing to judge, blame, defend and prove) more than you valued certainty and man-made ideologies (constant judging, blaming, defending and proving).
Seek out those who will keep you close to your Native Body Mind and its vibrant language and images and insights into the Real, the Natural Living Identity.
Know the difference between the Impersonal Process of Life and the personal process of life. In the latter you will always be wandering into emotional quicksand where the Spirit of the body is consumed.
Lovingly submit into the Impersonal Process of Life. You will still have a personality, but it will be a personality that has no boundaries. You will become an Expression of Life, not merely an expression of your personal limited mind’s life.
You are the Body of Love. Your Body contains the Circle of Light.
You are already Home.
