You don’t have to be of this world to be in it. This does not mean that you should become uncaring to what is. Contrarily, it means having so much compassion for every life form in the world, that you will not perpetuate one modicum of the egoic-drama that unfolds on the world stage from day to day. It means being on the outside looking in. It’s about loving the way things are, rather than how you want them to be. This is the perspective of the Self Realized.
The eternal Now is the void of the deeper reality of who you are. The Now is the infinite intelligence, the divine singularity, the divine vacuum that is whole. But how can you access it? How can you get there? Only by transcending the thought patterns of your mind can you enter that sacred space. Meditation is the key. Some may find it through extreme sports such as mountain climbing, surfing, or skiing. But however you choose to get there, when you discover the timeless stillness of the divine singularity, you will realize the nature of your divine Self. This is the eternal nature of the Divine.
Because we have been conditioned to constantly think about this or that, bombarded from birth by stimuli such as radio, television, the internet, and now texting mobile devices, we have forgotten as a species what it’s like to be in a space of non-thought. If you have never meditated before, or have tried but failed to achieve any place of peace, then don’t fret. With the proper meditation of just a few minutes a day, anyone can find a place of peace within.
It’s important for you to realize that you are neither your body nor your mind. Understanding this fully is the key to enlightenment and the portal to the unmanifested void of presence. The main reason why people find it arduous to enter the realm of non-thought is because they try too hard. If you enter into a meditation with the thoughts such as, “I have to remove my thoughts,” then automatically you have created resistance in your mind. The mind will resist because if it “gave in,” that would mean the end of the mind. The mind is a tool, like the body, for you to access so that you can see yourself as separate from the Source. But you are already complete even without your mind because before the mind came into being, you were already. This is “Source consciousness.”
Reuniting with that pure state of non-doing, non-thought, non-action, and non-static is achieved only by allowing it to occur. Be still, be quiet, and know that you are. You are that you are. Or you can say to your Self, “I am that I am.” You can use this as a mantra or you can choose one for yourself. Either way, do not resist your thoughts. Simply allow them to play themselves out and peacefully watch them as if they were clouds floating by. Do this during your meditation until your thoughts naturally, on their own volition, begin to wane. Focus your attention on a mantra or your breath and close your eyes. Breath deeply and relax. Do this everyday and you’ll find that your anxiety, stress, and nervous tension will subside.
