The Essence of Life is Consciousness

The essence of life is consciousness. The “purpose” of life is to become as conscious as possible. The human form is the result of this “purpose.”
Out of the morass of unconsciousness arises, little by little, the spark of consciousness and through constant effort and grace, becomes the raging fire of full enlightenment, full conscious liberation.
The “I am” emerges fully after all that hinders its full expression is dropped, either through one’s personal efforts, supported by grace, or through outer circumstances, also supported by grace.
What is grace? Grace are fortuitous energies that break through on occasion to help life find its true purpose of full conscious liberation in a living form.
It is not a “being conscious of something other,” but a “being conscious within oneself and of oneself.” The meditation is directed only towards the Self, not towards another.
What you see in the mirror of consciousness is only you. “I am, therefore I am.” There is the knowing of one’s own existence, nothing else. There is awareness of “other” things, but only the consciousness of one’s own being.
This experience is pure and singular. It is the blissful knowing of one’s own existence. It is instantly liberating. It frees one from the confines of one’s mind. That is the best way, at the moment, for me to describe it.
It is the direct experience of knowing of one’s own existence. That is truly phenomenal! Life knowing that it exists. What could be more astonishing!
The simple fact that life exists is already extraordinary. And then life itself knowing that it exists is the icing on the cake. What can top that?
What does one do with that realization? One continues to live one’s life to the best of one’s abilities with the survival skills nature provided that were sharpened through the daily interactions with one’s surroundings.
The important thing in life is to direct one’s intentions always towards something higher, more perfect, more exalted, to reach the pinnacle of existence, which is the perfectly pure Self-realization in blissful consciousness.
And then follows the blissful interaction with others that are also on the path of more and perfect realization. Purity is called for. Perfect purity in mind and heart and deed.
There is the feeling that what one did just a moment ago was less than perfect, and that only in this moment eternal perfection is achieved. So, in a sense, perfection is a passing experience, like the scene outside a moving train, where new objects continually come into focus.

The passing perfection of consciousness. Even so, the blissful scent lingers on. And so there is a continuation of life’s experiences, one blissful step after another, one blissful moment after another. That is how life progresses. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Peaceful Holidays

It is important to feel peace in your life. Most people enjoy the holidays, because that is a time for family and celebration. It is a time away from the hectic life that often times prevents us from experiencing the "finer" things in life, such as love and understanding.
When we live a less hectic life, we quite naturally will experience more peace. So, let the holidays be a reminder of what we are missing during the rest of the year: compassion, love, and understanding for each other.
Happy Holidays

Peaceful moments

Be loving in the moment. Have patience. Relax into the moment. In the relaxed moment there is peace, there is tranquility, there is comfort. Ease on down the street. In this relaxed state you are in your feeling and sensing mind, no longer in your analytical thinking mind.
Only in this state can you experience perfection, the perfection of the moment. As long as your conditioned mind interferes in your affairs, you will not experience peace. And you will not be able to affect peaceful reactions from those around you.

The essence

Stay with any experience until you find its essence. Every activity has an essence. That you must find. Nothing else truly matters in life. To life superficially is not worth living at all. Dig down deeply. Make an effort to find the essence. The essence and the purity of your soul are one and the same.

The verticality of being

The verticality of experiencing the essence. Dig down deeply. Go through all the layers of your being. Arrive at the central station. Look around and see that you have arrived in the valley of eternal peace. All your travels have come to an end. Discard all your disguises and be the pure Self.

What is your Essence?

What is the essence? It is a consicious essence. An inner experience. Most familiar to you. Your Soul, your very essence of being and knowing about it. Without knowing there is no existing. What you don’t know does not exist. In you there is the source of all knowledge.Your soul attracts all kinds of energy that it is compatible with. It repulses energies it is not comfortable with.

The purity of the soul

Socrates was right. He said that the soul could not be made purer than it is already. You can only find ways to remember this innate purity. That is where the search for perfection comes in. Perfection exists only in the moment. And the moment is only experienced when all comes to a standstill. Time and space merge. Who experiences this moment? The innermost essence of you. The Self. The Soul.
As long as there is even a hair of wanting to be somewhere else, this perfect moment cannot be experienced. Only when all cravings have ended can true peace be found.
