Energies to Ride - Part 2

We keep slipping into energy-draining states completely seamlessly, totally unaware of what's happening.

But as soon as we notice our energies being depleted, we have the innate, natural ability to just as effortlessly slip right back into that immensely spacious, still, silent awareness that is our true home, that lightly holds this, and all other transient energy-draining states.

It's not that sad memories or uncertainty about the future aren't true. But these are a tiny fragment of the immensity of the reality that we are. These aches & pains are but small, passing, ephemeral clouds in the spacious sky that is beyond knowable limits. So much time wasted, focusing on clouds, causes us to miss out on experiencing & being our immensity.

Oddly enough, one reason we slip into energy-draining states - the poor little me stories we tell ourselves - is that this small, fictional, solidified self is far easier to hold & maintain as a self-concept than our actual, huge, non-material, non-dual nature. Our real nature is beyond verbal description, so the continuous self-talk (from our noisy ego) can only fabricate a small, problem-ridden self, thus pulling a veil over boundless reality. Energy-depleting challenges are but a tiny aspect of the immensity of our being.

Whenever we feel lost, alone & aching, we must remember: returning home is effortless & instant - a mere shift in perspective.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. ... As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Maryanne Williamson

"It is difficult

to get the news from poems

yet men die miserably every day

for lack

of what is found there." William Carlos Williams - pediatrician, poet, novelist, playwright
