What is the secret?
There is no secret – as the truth is always present, obvious, readily available and utterly ordinary: Words can only point, for example: “It is what it is” – or “this is it” – or “being aware of-the-I-am” or “beingness” to name a few. Below are examples of how some teachers have pointed to it …
What is is what’s happening before you have a thought about it.
Notice the difference between what your mind thinks about this moment, and this moment as it is before you have any thought about it.
Being is our original condition, prior to all egoic antics, prior to all thought, prior to all description, prior to past, present and future.
We’re asking you to trust in the Well-being.
In optimism there is magic. In pessimism there is nothing. In positive expectation there is thrill and success. In pessimism or awareness of what is not wanted, there is nothing. What you’re wanting to do is redefine your relationship with the Stream.
We do not ask you to look at something that is black and call it white. We do not ask you to see something that is not as you want it to be and pretend that it is. What we ask you to do is practice moving your gaze.
Practice changing your perspective. Practice talking to different people. Practice going to new places. Practice sifting through the data for the things that feel like you want to feel and using those things to cause you to feel a familiar place.
In other words, we want you to feel familiar in your joy. Familiar in your positive expectation, familiar in your knowing that all is well, because this Universe will knock itself out giving you evidence of that Well-being once you find that place. We have enjoyed this interaction immensely. There is great love here for you. We are complete.
