To awaken. To become aware, enlightened, to see the truth. This is the quest, though most don’t realize that this is all they are suppose to do. Instead we have to complicate things. Surely, it can’t be that simple, but it is.
Become aware of that which lies within, it is your true self, the self that has no beginning and no ending. The self that is already enlightened and one with all things. This self is the self that will take you from the illusions wrought by the egoic mind, into a world of greater understanding. In a world where you are not the center and where everything doesn’t revolve around you.
The truth is that there is no center for there is only the one where each place is exactly like every other place. Everything is made up of energy and this energy is just like that energy. It has the same potential as every other piece of energy.
As we progress we reach certain plateaus and once reached the next one is in sight and then the next. Learning the truth, seeing the oneness and knowing the love are yours once you awaken. Your reality changes and you see the world in a whole new light. Everything is beautiful and bright for the most part, because you are part of the whole where there is no dissension. Conflicts don’t occur as there is only the one, living in harmony.
You will eventually come to know this state of being, this way of life, but before that can happen you must first you must be willing to recognize the fraud perpetrated by the egoic mind. The egoic mind cannot know the truth because it cannot exist within the truth. Therefor almost everything it tells you is a lie and should be ignored until it goes away.
Avoiding the trap is a difficult thing to do sometimes, because what the egoic mind tells you sounds right. It goes along with what your senses tell you. So you listen to the lies and fall for it all. Now you’re on the roller coaster of life when the egoic mind is in charge. Get off the merry-go-round, look within, be aware of the stillness for in it is the real you.
