A New Level...



We are trying to create this new level of consciousness in ourselves, something that does not previously exist, something new ... we earn it drop by drop ... and as we gain this new level of consciousness, we are then able to understand and accept things that are currently a mystery to us.

Acceptance...




Acceptance in any situation can allow a space of purity for the heart to merge the impressions that can come in so fast … to accept not just the situation and all the details, but the machine itself and all it's manifestations arising. It is a beautiful opportunity to connect to the eternal in us and feel the true worth of the moment.

A Beautiful Choice...



When I am able to truly accept things as they are, I am amazed by the effect on me, and the difference in reactions from others. In the moment, it is such a beautiful choice.

Self-Remembering....




Self-Remembering allows us to experience acceptance ... in these moments we can let our features diminish, and identifications fade away. The mind can take us prisoner, but in this way the Work jump starts our evolution ...

Circumstances



"All circumstances—good or bad—must change in time; and if one can only pass through them equally, without being borne too much up or too much down, one becomes ready for other change. It is not the happy or tragic role that makes the difference between actors, but the way the role is played. 

Some parts of life are very hard. At the same time one can no longer wish it to be otherwise; for perhaps it is better to be called upon to pay up to the limit of one's capacity for a while, so that one's debt to life is reduced, and one may be that much nearer to becoming free."

Shocks...





 A good shock makes energy quickly. But shocks can be of three kinds; somebody else can give it to you, or you can give it to yourself or it may come accidentally. Nothing else can create energy quickly. A good shock can make you remember yourself and remember the shock. It may be so good that you will be unable to forget it for some time. That will make you more emotional and the emotional center will produce energy.

Practicing Dying...



Death's greatest advantage over us is that we do not know 
where he awaits us, we can take away some of his advantage
by awaiting him everywhere. Practicing dying frees us from 
the slavery of this life.
