The past couple of weeks I have been in a process of witnessing my mind. At times the awareness has been primarily the “I Am” of pure Awareness watching what is arising and passing away with a deep knowing that I am not the thoughts and/or emotions associated with the form known as Crystal Dawn. At times the witness is present and thoughts and feelings arise and while there is an awareness that I am not these thoughts and feelings there is still an identification with them. At times the identification with the thoughts and feelings is arising is stronger than the witnessing of them then the witnessing is noticed and I see where I have slipped into the belief of me as a separate self. The beauty of this process is that I am appreciating all of it. In the past there would be a judgment when I get lost in the dream of separation. There would be elation when I am feeling the expansion into “I Am” Consciousness. Now, I am seeing it all as Awareness in a variety of forms playing in the Field of Existence and there is an underlying peace through all of it.
In my exploration of Tantra as a path of awakening I find myself guided to what will support my next step. I love that Tantra is an inclusive path embracing what life offers as path to truth. Over the past few months I have been diving deeper into sitting meditation and meditative self-inquiry. I have been reading and listening to Adyashanti, Gangaji, and Eckhart Tolle and while I doubt any of them identify themselves as Tantra teachers all of them speak to awakening which is the path of Tantra.
I love finding new resources that are clear, concise and offer new tools that are simple to use. In True Meditation, Adyashanti clearly describes a form of meditation he developed over many years of trial and error, called “True Meditation.” It is a form of meditation that relinquishes the concept of controlling the mind. It is based on the knowledge that enlightenment is our natural state of, so we need only allow the mind to return to its true nature to wake up. The practice is to sit, relax the mind and allow everything to be as it is. My experience is that this form of meditation is liberating on many levels. You not only discover peace on the cushion but are able to take this attitude into every moment of your life.
Try this: Sit quietly, relax your mind and just allow everything to be as it is. Your attitude is one of innocence and openness. See what you discover.
