Do you hear the silence? I do.
Do you see intelligence dancing around you? I do. Shiva is always here, hiding in plain sight as everything.
Once this point of view was a flash, no more, questioned.
Each time, I saw it a little longer. A flash, no more, still questioned.
I began to realize I could have this experience all of the time. My helpful ego thought this achievement meant all sorts of things about me.
I learned to let grace come in without handing it to my ego. This took a lot of discipline. This discipline is why I can post these secret things here, without thinking any of this is my attainment. Attainment is the consolation prize. I seek the true prize. I am vigilant, and keep these most precious things apart from my ego.
I am so lucky. I was so tired. I was tired of serving the illusion that I could obtain all that I craved and juggled and desperately sought each day without turning inward.
Grace was waiting, endless grace, waiting for me.
I find the source of endless refreshment, comfort and joy flowing up through me whenever I turn to my source. I receive all that I have ever wanted and more, the real desires of my heart, not worldly reflections. This is why the guru is called the Wish Fulfilling Tree.
I could not do any of this without grace. Grace is REQUIRED.
Grace comes from my guru. It flows to me when I draw it with auspicious acts of loving self-discipline, when I grow spiritually. It is always a gift. I cannot earn it. It is precious beyond all purchase or repayment.
I can only learn how to accept grace.
Because of grace, I hear the silence. I stop, I listen, and it is always there. What is real... immediate... forever.
I have turned my senses inward. This is my discipline.
Because of grace, I see that One who is beyond time and space, who creates time and space from Self. One who has always existed; One without second. I know my consciousness is this One.
There is a sacred, sacred place in the heart where this One is not veiled. Will you live and die this time without finding this place?
A part of me is established there. This is my heart's desire, always above everything else. Every day I choose this, a little more of me is established in God. It's a little easier. It lasts longer. My guru teaches me that I can become enlightened, can be established in God in this lifetime. This truth thrills me; I am returning home. It is the journey of journeys.
Do you want the source of endless refreshment, comfort and joy above all? If this is what you desire, seeker..... wait no longer. SEEK... God will answer the longings of your heart.
