A tree that is unbending is easily broken.
Forms of consciousness that are rigid in their illusory dominance are unbending, exclusive, and easily broken. They have no holistic awareness, no truthful perception of reality. They are but robots, automatons.
If, however, you are focused in your awareness in the dominance of spacious consciousness -- if you are bending and yielding -- then you are relinquishing your exclusivity. Exclusivity is illusion, and embracing inclusion, on the other hand, is truthful. When you embrace inclusion, you are “flowing with” rather than “pushing against.”
You’ve heard the expression, “Go with the flow.” The flow of life is the dominance of the subjective over the objective. It is awareness of the spaciousness of life that is much more vast than are the forms of life.
Awareness of spaciousness is holistic awareness, and it creates the balance that sustains holistic awareness. It’s challenging to go with the flow. It’s challenging to be bending, yielding and inclusive for it represents the truth. We have so much history and habit with illusion. It’s challenging to relinquish the illusion—our habitual unconscious automaton behavior.
But the truth is available if you have enough self-awareness to be focused in a moment and to be still and aware of the dominant spaciousness of consciousness that allows your holistic awareness to expand.
