Stop seeking. Be found.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a seeker. Whether unconscious or consciously, I’ve felt this deep longing in my heart for truth. At this moment, rather than travel more, I’m sitting still. Two months at Hridaya Yoga & Meditation school in Oaxaca, Mexico where I’m taking a deeper look at myself and exploring the mysteries of life. Becoming the laboratory, the scientist and the experiment.
Funny thing is the more I sit still, the more I wake up to the absolute wonderment within and all around me. And yet nothing has changed really, it was always there.
William Blake wisely wrote, “To see a World in a Grain of Sand and a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand and Eternity in an hour.“ What an amazing invitation to fascination. To see the extraordinary in the ordinary, the ordinary in the extraordinary and not to see them as better or different but just expressions of the same infinite life force. The Absolute Truth. Call it God, call it love, call it consciousness, whatever you chose, so many of us are seeking something we can’t name. We look for it in life’s pleasures and yet as soon as the mind thinks it’s “got it”, it hasn’t. It’s not a mental exercise.
So what are we doing? Where are we going? And are we “there” yet?
Ram Das says, “we’re all just walking eachother home.” And maybe it’s as simple as that. You travel the whole world only to discover that resting place in your own heart. You acquire all of this stuff only to drop it, your identity, personality, belongings, stories, lies. No longer running around chasing the ego’s evergrasping desires. But actually being present with what is. Stillness. Nothingness. Truth.
