At first, it can be scary to think that we are not our thoughts. That who we think we are is not who we are at all. It is scary because it begs the ultimate question ‘if I am not my thinking, then who am I?’ It is then doubly scary to know yourself only as space, a silent emptiness, that is alive with energy. This can be too much for the thinking mind to grasp, but think not and you can hear the silence of space as yourself.
When I first took my mind back to what caused the easy and effortless changes to happen in my life, I could not accept that the space that I had touched, in what I can only call another realm, was where it all started. (see my first post). ‘Space?” I kept saying to myself. “Please, I mean really?! There’s got to be a better explanation than that”. I searched for something more concrete, something I could understand. Perhaps it was a book I had read, a seminar I had attended, a conversation or an experience I had. How could it be ‘space’ that changed my world with such ease? I had made no constructive effort to improve my life, yet my life was improving in all areas quite easily, effortlessly and it was all happening in my stride. It made no sense.
However, I continued to reject the power of space because it was hard to grasp. It was only when I tried not to grasp it, with thought, that I knew it to be true, without doubt. The power of the space in your mind has its roots deep in our history, dating back thousands of years and now backed by developments in neuroscience, it is at the forefront of our minds. This space is pure energy, pure life and pure intelligence. It lacks nothing because it is everything.
Let there be space in your mind. It is not scary because you don’t have to understand it, make sense of it, explain it or describe it. You simply have to let it be and it will do the rest.
How easy, simple and effortless. How could it be anything else? It is who you are and who you are has never been a conundrum. Why would it be? You would never play such trickery on yourself. The thoughts that you think however would.
Let there be space in your mind and your thinking will know you as its’ Master. You, the Master will know freedom and peace as it is. Living from here is nothing less than exhilarating.
