I haven't posted in quite a while. But it doesn't mean I haven't been working towards my vision.
many times I am confronted with situations that try my mind. And many times I try to think through them. When really what is needed is to accept things as they are.
I find that when I am out of sorts is when I am being tested. And the only real way to pass the test is to learn the lesson or unlearn the lesson so to speak.
The first phase I use is resting as awareness. This calms everything down and takes me out of my mind. To rest as awareness is like being the observer plus another step removed. You become just the awareness that you already are. Not thinking, not existing as a thought form, not labeling,not judging,not gauging,not contemplating.
While resting as awareness you perceive everything around you. But it is not a verb,you do nothing,It is a non doing exercise. You rest as your pure self in awareness. See everything, hear all, smell smells, the works.
But with out analyzing your thoughts,let them pass right through you, unheard while your resting in pure awareness.
Its very peaceful in awareness and a good place to rest. Give it a try when things seem to be going to fast. It has worked wonders for me.
remember your essence is pure awareness!!!
