Most people probably would call me superstitious, unintelligent or even insane for the words I’m about to share with you.
They lack insight into the nature of your essential condition.
I know however… I know the beauty that is in, through and as you.
That boundless expanse that holds all things together.
The Dao, the logos, God, mother earth… Call it what you will.
One thing is for certain, even though “intellectuals” will furiously argue for the contrary.
You are that!
You are the infinite expanse and expressions of life.
How could infinity ever be anxious?
About what would it possibly be anxious about?
“The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me; but my deaf ears cannot hear it.” – Kabir
If you feel an overwhelming and debilitating anxiety troubling your soul, something must be out of place…
Lets find out exactly what it is!
First however, let us establish why you are infinity incarnate:
3 Pointings To Your Infinite Eternal Nature
I. You are infinite because you are without form and without name.
II. You are eternal because you are the witness of all beginnings and all endings.
III. You are the ultimate because you are the absolute subjective perceiver of all manifestation and non-existence.
Now obviously I’m not talking to the idea you have of yourself, your identity, your ego, your separate self obviously I’m talking about something much more subtle than merely your body and your mind.
Those “objects” are definitely not infinite.
I’m talking to your innate, essential consciousness.
It isn’t “yours” but you are within it and it is within you.
It is not a possession, its simply the source of life itself.
“Love abounds in all things, excels from the depths to beyond the stars, is lovingly disposed to all things.” – Hildegard of Bingen
How Infinity and Presence Dreams Itself Into being a Person
When infinity decides to take up a human form or any other sentient form for that matter, it does so by breathing its own presence into the form.
Presence is the first principle of all manifest reality and it is from the sense of presence that we can dream ourselves into being a person.
A person is liable to all kinds of fears, hopes, dreams, anxieties, depressions, instabilities, and what have you…
A person is conditioned, whereas presence is always immaculate.
In fact, the person doesn’t exist except for the belief that arises from the sense of presence.
This presence “breathes” life into the person and all its short-comings, by dreaming them and believing them into reality.
You must realign your self with your own presence, only then will you never feel anxious again.
You might be protesting!
How is that possible?
Never to feel anxious again…
Well my answer is:
The Story of Me and Myself
A myriad of different sensations and feelings will come to you and be experienced by you, but the difference is that you will not take ownership of any of them. Unlike the person that takes ownership of everything personal…
- This happened to me yesterday..
- She didn’t listen to what I had to say!
- I just want to be happy…
- I was terrified of that scenario..
- That is mine and no one deserves it but me…
- No one understands how I feel..
- I don’t feel good enough..
Presence does not take ownership, presence is much lighter and brighter. It isn’t associated with any phenomena, but is naturally content in and within itself.
Anxious feelings may of course still occur, but they won’t last and more importantly, they won’t be identified with.
The more you identify the more you give life to unimportant matters.
Therefore it is time to grow out of the sense of person back to presence.
Lets do it:
The Significance of Self-Realization
“Although God is Almighty, He can only work in a heart when He finds readiness or makes it. He works differently in men than in stones.” – Meister Eckhart
You can only realize yourself when you are ready to shed the superficial mask of the person, to move beyond it, into your infinite self.
This infinite self is always available for your rediscovery of itself.
It is always open for your earnest heart.
The thing is to recognize that the root cause is the sense of being a separate person or ego or self. To recognize and from there firmly decide to move beyond it.
How to Move Beyond into Infinity
This is how you do it:
Simply drop it.
You can’t really drop it, but just drop it…
Without effort, let it be dropped, meaning, stop feeding it the attention and belief that you have been feeding it up to now.
Direct your attention to your original sense of presence.
Be alert and aware of your own unconditioned nature.
“It is impossible. The ego cannot be sacrificed because the ego exists not. The ego is just all idea: it has no substance in it. It is not something – it is just pure nothing. You give it reality by believing in it. You can withdraw belief and the reality disappears, evaporates.” – Osho
You don’t have to kill the ego…
In fact you can’t and the more you try to do it, the more you’ll feed the beast and the more anxious of a person you become.
Simply let everything flow through you, like empty space.
Empty, loving beautiful graceful, silent space that nurtures everything and anything.
You are this infinite space that contains and perceives all.
Realize this deeply in your being, and any anxiety, fear or depression will be fleeting clouds in the infinite space of your consciousness!
Wake up… or just comment below 😛
My name is just a name, I am not my name, I am the nameless because the Dao that can be named is not the eternal Dao.
