Would you like to be on the cutting edge of consciousness? If so, why do you want it? The answer is that its cutting edge is where consciousness creates itself newly in each moment. It’s also where the greatest amplitude of power is, where the greatest wakefulness is and where the greatest bliss is. So if you want to be fulfilled, if you want to be happy all the time and be all that you are—joyously intoxicated, high on life, and in the maximum fulfillment that is possible for a human being—then you want to be on that cutting edge. And how do you get there? The answer is meditation.
Consider what happens when you meditate. You close your eyes. You turn your gaze from the outside, where you spend most of your time, to the silence of inside. You focus into the stillness, into the quiet and the emptiness of the interior of your being. This focus creates a balance to the noise of the outside.
Meditation opens the gateway of wakefulness and your self-awareness expands holistically. You open to the subtler dimensions of your multi-dimensional consciousness wherein you experience true reality as one blissful consciousness. Through an emphasis on transcendence, which is the interior polarity, you create the balance to your immanence, which is your exterior polarity.
Through maintenance of the balance of transcendence and immanence, you transcend both of them. You move through the gateway to true reality as a self-aware wakeful experience of blissful consciousness. In human experience there are many examples of great sages, masters and mystics as well as very ordinary human beings who have actualized these mechanics of consciousness in themselves through the meditative art and science. These masters have experienced a level of fulfillment that is radically liberated and blissful. We know this experience is possible for us as well.
Always remember that life as a human being is an exploration … an exploration of true reality … an exploration of the fullness of who you are and what life is on the cutting edge of consciousness as it creates the future of itself.
