Living Freedom IS
The Death of the Idea of You
Living a life of freedom is the end of postponement—it is the deepest meeting of what is always here right now. It is lives in the willingness to accept your life right now exactly as it is free of any story in your mind of who you think you are or what you think your life means, or will mean, or doesn’t mean. It is a deep meeting of the emptiness that lives inside of you and all around you.
We can think of living a life of freedom as doing what we want to do, but freedom is not about what you are doing or not doing or what you plan to do or be or have or what you are feeling or any state of consciousness. Freedom is free of all feelings and it is free of the sensation that you are the doer.
The Laser Sword of Consciousness
Setting Yourself Free of the Suffering of Mind
The mind is a powerful force within you that has the capacity to keep you bound or set you free—the choice ultimately is yours. An undirected mind can trap you in the endless internal conversation with yourself that has the power to extend your pain over time. This is the fundamental nature of suffering. However, the mind directed to its source is like a laser sword that has the infinite power to cut through any suffering, any trap, or limitation of mind.
One True Question
What is Always Here?
If liberation is your deepest desire, there is only one true question—What is always here? Every moment, every breath, our lives change, our feelings change, our circumstances change, even our identity changes, but Silence never changes. This is the vast, unmoving, Presence that is completely still and shines through your eyes and mine.
The Ordinary Enlightenmemt
What is known as awakening, or freedom, is organic like a seed opens with the rays of the sun—the natural opening of your the mind to direct realization of the source of all thought, all feelings, all circumstances—the pure unbounded happiness and freedom that is alive in your Heart. Curiosity is an essential aspect of this direct discovery and through the great gift of technology—what is known as enlightenment is no longer relegated to the few saints and sages; freedom from suffering—true redemption—is available to everyone here and now.
