Once we taste a very good quality of Sencha tea, in my case my favorite is organic Midori No Kaori from Uji province in Japan, then everything else that is below that level no longer feels tasty as it used to be, all of the sudden they all feel fake, a very faint reminiscence of what true quality should taste like.
As such with our true Being, once we get a glimpse of that inner Being that resides in all and everything, the peace that we feel (that is the emanation of the Being), is like the scent of the rose… invisible yet powerful and going beyond the limitations of the physical form.
Sometimes we are dragged back into the vortex of Samsara, the very mundane life that we thought we uprooted but even if we allow ourselves to be blinded again for a while, we will long for that true essence which sheds light to the so called reality we are living in and makes it look like a black and white movie that can’t be mistaken for reality.
At points the emotional turmoil captures our awareness and we lack that spiritual objectivity from before the upheaval, but deep inside ourselves that Being is slowly unveiled, like growing (although in reality nothing is growing, everything was always there, only under some heavy veils and distortions). As soon as the power of the emotions subsides, peace comes back in unless we are trying to draw conclusions, analyze and give meaning to things that have no meaning whatsoever. Whatever happens has no true purpose other than teaching you to accept and let go of each and every moment of Now. Thoughts are bombarding us with suggestions: do this, do that, don’t do this and that, leave, run, attack..
Best approach is to smile or even laugh out loud. It’s at that moment that all the power that we invested our mind with is similar to the power which we give to the government and politicians that are no longer working in our best interest anymore,..everything fake falls into pieces by the Lotus feet of the Ultimate Existence which we all are.
Annihilate the mind projections and analysis, the thoughts and feelings and you are going to dive deep into your Being, no judgment, no projection, no concepts…Become pure perception, just pure unhindered existence. That’s who we all are. That peace, that Love, that bliss, that calmness and humbleness is who we truly are.
All the rest, ideas, names, titles, possessions, attire, and anything other than that are just separating tools, tools that empower the lower ego, the “little self” who is forever victimized and in fear, who judges and analyzes the experience through past traumas and distorted memories and is driven by the desire to control the external environment.
When you are able to get even for a small amount of time away from the mind and ego and taste that inner Blissful Being, then you will have only one vision: how to expand that Being which is You and Everything, into transcending all the past ideas and rulers and becoming fully That which you have always been.
The selfless person is not competing anymore for anything, because they know that what’s theirs is there without effort, without fighting (for it), just because of who they are, because they’re flowing with Life and know that what’s theirs to have cannot be taken away and they do not let the experience bound them. We are One and All already, why are you running for a minute portion when you are everything that ever was, is and will be. Don’t misinterpret the “without the effort” part, we still have to give our 100% in everything we do, yet it comes almost effortless since it is a flow of You in the experience.
Now sit back and watch everything from the point of view of the information you’ve received. Everything is empowered and created by you. All your pleasure and pain is just seeing your creation through a very narrow standing point. Once you transcend, the illusion seems like it lost its shine, you see the flaws and the ephemeral nature of everything within it and you know that you are immortal and you are going to Be, long after this whole movie will end!
