The joy of Being, which is the only true happiness, cannot come to you through any form, possession, achievement, person, or even t- through anything that happens. Joy cannot come to you - ever. It emanates from the formless dimension within you, from consciousness itself from the perfect person you are.
When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life. It means fear is no longer a dominant factor in what you do. If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into aliveness, alertness and creativity.
When there is spiritual awakening it must happen in that domain, the formless domain of consciousness.You awaken into the fullness, aliveness, and the sacredness of now. Before you were absent, asleep, and now you are present, awake.
The whole world changes when there's presence of consciousness - sunlight everywhere - because you're not separate from the world.
If peace is really what we want, then we will choose peace. If peace matters to us more than anything else and if we truly know ourselves to be Spirit, then we will accept challenging people and situations as adventures. We will immediately become one with it rather than separate ourselves from these natural forms of life.
Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn't very much. Language consists of five basic sounds produced by the vocal cords. They are the vowels: a, e, i, o, u.The other sounds are consonants produced by air pressure: s, f, g, and so forth. Do we believe any combination of such basic sounds could ever explain who we are, or the ultimate purpose of the universe, or even what a tree or stone is in its depth?
Thinking, or more precisely identification with thinking, gives rise to and maintains the ego, which is out of control. It believes it is real and tries hard to maintain its supremacy. Negative states of mind, such as anger, resentment, fear, envy and jealousy, are products of the ego.
