As I was puttering around my kitchen this morning, I recognized a deepening in understanding that had taken place recently...It is as follows...That the attributes of kindness, compassion, forgiveness and the like support this ascendance, the coming into, an spiritually awakened life as these lift the clouds that obscure the light of the heart, the great heart of Being. This might be an obvious point to many but here is the piece that perhaps strays from the more common perception. These attributes are not indicated as a heavy edict in the rule-bound should and shouldn’t category - a man-made construct of how to behave - but rather they derive from a much deeper heart intelligence that increasingly invites us toward awakening....They are part and parcel of that organic movement toward an enlightened life. These attributes are not there to constrain and punish, if one seems to go astray, but rather their light-filled promptings are there to move us toward who we really are, that pure awareness that transcends individual manifestation while deeply honoring the same...
I have felt this for a while. What is perhaps different now is that this awareness feels more embodied...
This is not to say that this gives permission to spiritually bypass and condones certain behaviors. It is that our movements and behaviors would originate from a deeper place, from pure consciousness, engendering movement that would honor the highest good. (A good that has no opposite...)
Much more could be said about this, but perhaps the above will suffice for now!..
Sending much love,
