Each time we begin anew, and as we truly awaken to our Essential Nature, we enter realms where there’s no place to hold onto. We surrender hope; relying Instead on trust, as we feel our way through the darkness. We are like seeds underground, where there doesn’t seem like much is going on. But this is a fertile time of waiting, where we’re learning to welcome and embody ourselves; responding to life, on its terms, where “thy” and “my” become one and the same.
Learning to live as a fully awake and embodied human being entails a shift in our identity, from separative, ego-oriented thought-based, to not-separate, heartfelt awareness-based knowing. Here, we abide spontaneously, as unchanging and ever-present equanimity amidst the ever-changing circumstance of life. This shift in identity unfolds along a continuum of awakening:
- Waking In, where we learn to welcome and embrace all aspects of our humanness;
- Waking Up, where the myth of separation is dispelled and we awaken as undivided Essential Nature;
- Waking Down, where integration occurs as Essential Nature permeates all aspects of our humanness; and…
- Waking Out, where we live as impersonal Essential Nature, embodying personal authentic actions, navigating ever-changing oceans of change amidst our social, economic, environmental, and political circumstances.
Join Richard in welcoming yourself through the door of the known, into the Mystery that has given birth to the entire cosmos; that awakens you to embodying and living your life as unchanging equanimity, well-being, and unbridled authenticity.
