Light and Shadow

Light and shadow are two seemingly opposing characteristics.  Our tendency is to embrace and emulate the light, while judging, shaming and denying the shadow aspect.  Do we deny night and day, masculine and feminine, hot and cold, happy and sad?  Of course not, they are essential aspects of our livingness, as are our light and … More Light and Shadow

Generative: All phenomena are insubstantial by nature.

Three components of meditation are active in both Generative Stage practice and in a meditator’s intention to benefit the world. They are: the ability to focus one’s mind in a tranquil and steady acute manner, the quality of energy that one chooses to work with or that is being generated by the meditative act/focus, and … More Generative: All phenomena are insubstantial by nature.

We are dimensional beings. Antahkarana is the vibrational continuous nature of the dimensionality of Awareness-Being.

It is knowing in an additional dimensional way, which is why it tends to be dismissed … More Continuous dimensionality: the Antahkarana

Generative: we are.

We are what we seek. It is human to seek it outside of ourselves, just as one seeks water or food or warmth. In fact, because that is the method used most of the day to satisfy such needs or desires, we use that method for Wholeness too. Yet, authenticity, truth of being, the purity … More Generative: we are.

To perceive the light in others as well as in circumstances and events requires standing within in one’s authenticity. Luminous perception results.

Field of Presence

We are a field of Presence and Being. This, like the vibration of an emotion or the energy of a thought, can be felt. Our field is palpable – when and if – we take note of it.

Only meditation can provide the direct experience of Being. Meditation offers the trained mind an enhanced and expanded experience of reality, along with the relativity of any moment.

Abiding as Presence positively effects humanity

We sit in long spans of meditational presence knowing that it serves existence not only ourselves. This is the way of now – related, interconnected, vibrantly interdependent as one whole. The whole is human consciousness. This is one shared composite of all that we bring of awareness, sorrow, fear, love, worry, and joy to it. … More Abiding as Presence positively effects humanity

It is that simple. Awareness is one’s choice. Smiling, letting go, letting be, rejoicing, celebrating, appreciating, understanding all are one’s choice. Patience, contentment, ease, composure also are one’s choice. Similarly, so distraction, rudeness, impatience, agitation, aggravation, denial, and heedlessness are too. Life is one’s choice.
