In the days of plenty, when everything is going our way, we rarely pray for help or guidance or any of the other things we pray about. It’s when we are suffering that we want relief from it, or a solution for it. Happiness is a state of mind, but just the ego mind. This is the mind that makes us think we are separate. This is the mind that creates the problems and makes us suffer.

When we awaken in The ALL we realize we are one with the divine and though there is still suffering from aches and pains of the body, sorrows from illness or death, and even disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, there is mostly happiness. It is the body that suffers and not the real you. The reality of suffering is only physical for the real you doesn’t know pain or sickness or death.

All physical things die or wear away. The true self has no beginning and no end. The true self allows everything to be. It does not know good from bad, right from wrong because in The ALL they don’t exist. There is only oneness, peace and harmony. As long as you’re awake all you’ll see is the nondualistic world of reality. Sure the physical body will get sick and eventually die, but the true self, which is no self, lives on and even in sickness it sees only the reality of its oneness.

Oneness is truth, the reality of the world, knowing that it is as it is. Knowing that no change is needed. Change is trying to control what can’t be controlled. It’s like trying to stop the rain from falling down or the wind to blow. These things are natural, just as waking from the dream state is natural.

Lift the veil, step into the silence, know the truth. This is the real you, the you that you want to know. The you that sees the truth and enlightenment. The you that perceives the world as it is and lets it be. Revel in the truth for it is freedom, real freedom from the suffering the ego puts us through.
