AWAKENING TO LIFE

Image

We are living in wonderland, but we rarely notice it. The easiest way.to spiritually awaken is to look at the world around us with new eyes… to see things as if for the first time and the last time!

Usually we become so entangled in the story we tell ourselves about life that we don’t notice the deep mystery of existence. We live as if we know what is going on, when actually life is an enormous enigma. For spiritual awakening we need to step into the mystery. A simple way to do this is to focus on the present moment.  When we do, our state of consciousness spontaneously changes because we come out of the story and into the mystery. The story exists in time, so when we bring our attention into the present moment there is no story about the past and the future. This can be a great relief. In the here and now, we don’t understand life with words; we experience the mystery of the moment.

Spiritual awakening is intensely pleasurable, because we truly appreciate all we see and hear and touch in this world of wonders. When we are superficially awake, we feel the enjoyment available to us only partially. When we are deeply awake; however, we find ourselves really savoring the pleasures of life. The body wakes up to how sweet it is to be alive.

Appreciate colors and sounds and feelings. They become rich and vibrant. The world starts to sparkle. There is an experience of profound gratitude that arises when we  see how glorious life really is!Image
