The Enlightenment Within.
American spiritualist Adyashanti writes, “enlightenment is a destructive process…a crumbling away of untruth.”
Though, in that process we expect something grande – to feel that ages old shell finally yielding.
But the truth is our awakening is quite ordinary. As we release the burden of our clinging, our hearts begin to rest as the senses open. In this way, the reference of experience deepens.
We see through our pretense and into that which is extraordinary.
“As I often tell my students,” he writes, “the person you’ll have the hardest time opening to and truly loving without reserve is yourself. Once you can do that, you can love the whole universe unconditionally.”
This is our liberation, my loves. This is our freedom. For it is only through the mind’s eye that we may finally connect to spirit.
And, reminding us that enlightenment has been here all along.
A little something to consider on this beautiful blessing of day.
