Just Let It Be Amazing

“When we are contemplating the universe, we are the universe contemplating itself, and that may be the most wondrous and extraordinarily profound aspect of our whole life.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing

It brings us back to question, What’s really going on here?

If you view the moon tonight, let the mystery of it all lead you into knowing that you really don’t know anything about the workings of the universe. No one does. And that’s perfectly okay. There is so much more going on than the mind could even comprehend. Just let it be what it is: amazing.

What ‘Being Still’ Means

“Being still is not an act of physical motionlessness or of quieting the mind. It is about being available to whatever is occurring in every moment.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing

Don’t make it another obligation or something you think you “should” do. Being still is about noticing that stillness is always there in every moment. It is the ground of your being – who you truly are. You’re never separate from stillness and there’s nothing to find, nowhere to go, no one else to be.

That’s the central message in my little children’s book called Nowhere Better, which is now out in print. You can find it here. A reminder for us all that our true self is always and already present, whole, and complete.

The Big Questions

What is my life about? Who am I? and What is God? If we are not asking these bigger questions, we tend to sleepwalk through life, skimming the surface, and acting and reacting from entrenched points of view and patterns of behaving.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing

Asking the bigger questions about life is all that matters. You could be an intellectual genius and still have no clue what you truly are or what’s really going on. It’s not about knowledge, it’s about essential wisdom.

The only thing that’s important is waking up, seeing Ultimate Reality clearly, and operating in human form from our true natural loving spirit. That’s it. The rest will take care of itself, because as it just so happens, it already is without any input from you and the way your ego thinks things should be.

Who am I really? Sit with that. Whatever answer the mind comes up with is false. Don’t let words inform you and add to an illusory identity. Let silence show you. It’ll burn all that is not true and reveal that which is the true One Self.
