“No desires, no goals, no seeking, no thoughts, neither obtaining, nor rejecting, nor grasping, nor letting go… rather being free.”
An eternally witnessing consciousness simply watches itself. It has no opinion… one way or another. It has no desire… no goals. It neither seeks nor finds… accepts nor rejects. It is the awareness of both awareness and non-awareness. It is holistic consciousness… and it is self-delighting… blissful within itself. It is forever free.
It is the ego-driven mind that is full of stories… judgments… and opinions. Desires and goals… seeking and finding… accepting and rejecting… are the domain of the ego’s virtual reality. The result is conflict and suffering.
This week… let us be as wakeful as it is possible for us to be. Let us simply be a witnessing consciousness watching itself as the happenings of life moment by moment. Let us relinquish our stories… judgments and opinions. Let us simply be free.
