True self

The moment that we become aware that we are within our thoughts or that we are becoming our reactions is the moment we are become conscious. It’s when we actually enter this moment now.

We are the witnesser of our thoughts, of our senses, of our emotions, of our reactions, that is the true you and me, the human soul that we all are, the ball of energy that is beyond the body and mind.

To transcend our so called ‘normal’ unconscious mind-obsessed state we have to become aware and we simple then need to be the spectator to it. Once we disassociate with the mind and the emotions and reactions it creates, then we are our truly ourself.

Once we become our thoughts, emotions and reactions we are no longer aware, we are no longer in this real life moment, we are no longer our true selves.

A summer evening.

I’m sitting in the garden, just listening to the birds, the coolness of a summer evening as the sun sets, a gentle breeze, a flapping of a bird’s wings in the tree.

Sounds and smells of nature, a beautiful sky, with ever changing colours as the sun continues to fade behind the horizon.

This background of the real moment, now, is always there. It’s we just don’t notice it, our endless repetitive mind-streams of thought drown it out.

If we stop and listen, allowing some our senses to enjoy this moment, then we become conscious and at peace.

This is freely available now, it’s just we have to choose to become it and enjoy it.
