Absorption in the Current

We have all been conditioned to look at ourselves and each other and notice that we are human beings, separate from other human beings, having been given particular tasks to work on. Our differences have been accentuated. Each of us has different challenges, different strengths, different personalities and a different path to the divine. We see ourselves as unique expressions of the human experience, as unique flows within a greater flow – the one which animates all life. These flows might together be called a “current”, because of its energetic similarity to how electricity flows through our houses, streets and towns, splitting and coming together as it enters our homes to be utilized by all of our personal needs, in all of our individual, unique and personal spaces.

“Current” can be another way of talking about the electric-like energy which animates life – which moves through all of us to lesser or greater degrees depending on how open we are to it. If we are open to it (if our circuits are not blocked with unintegrated material) it can provide us with physical energy, with perspective, information, creative ideas, and with knowing what to do and what to say in the flow of the present moment.

This current flows into our human bodies’ electrical networks through our connectedness with the larger system of which we are a part. Yet through hologram-like structures in our seemingly separate human organisms, we actually are not just connected to the larger system but contain and are the larger system. Defying linear logic, we contain the larger system and the larger system contains us equally.

Neither do we leave our human selves behind in order to connect with the larger energetic system, current or field. Instead we discover access to the larger current through embracing the fullness of being individual humans. As the self-rejection and making-wrong patterns so long embedded in the human psyche let go and the fragmented parts of our humanity begin to be gathered and embraced, then the energy is able to flow through the circuits of the human system as the larger current itself.

Thoughts, actions, words, feelings, sensations appear in our human experience as unique expressions of the larger energy, the current itself. The human is not moving along in a current not his/her own, it is instead what we actually are most deeply. Neither are we surrendering to the current as if to an external force or deity. The experience is one of actually being the current, the animating force of life, as one ventures into the world participating with creative input that blossoms when our personal histories and our unique perspectives join with the greater flow of life.

We then find that we are a unique and irreplaceable part of something quite beyond our small and separate selves. We see that we have a contribution to make that is unlike anyone else’s. We may be one intelligent being together, but as individuals we also each carry a unique and important thread very much needed by life. We are each needed for the strength of the whole and our impact enhances its effectiveness in expressing the new possibilities for humanity’s future now emerging.

Eckhart Tolle & Oprah: Changing the Focus of our Life to the Present Moment

poppy.jpg

On the second web-cast of Oprah Winfrey’s phenomenally large online class with Eckhart Tolle, the stand-out for me was when Eckhart talked about making the present moment the focal point of our lives. Eckhart has a wonderful way of saying inspiring things using such plain language that we can all get it, no matter what our spiritual or religious background might be. We can see into the meaning of his simple words, and connect with the reality that they are pointing to.

We heard in his earlier book “The Power of Now” about the importance of the present moment—about how the past and the future are not real in the same way that this present moment is realpast and future are just ideas that are programmed into our minds. This must have resonated with many of us, because the Power of Now has been on the best seller lists for so long. Now Eckhart has written A New Earth and it has already sold 3.5 million copies, even before Oprah started this class. We must have an abiding interest in this message! And we want to knowafter exploring our interest and enjoying these wonderful books, is there a way that we can actually experience this reality that Eckhart is talking about in the midst of the commotion of our busy daily lives?

What would it really mean to change the focal point of our lives to the present moment, and to stay living in the world? If we are willing to really have that happen for us, what would it mean for our lives? The content in each of our lives is different obviously, so the exact details of what would change would be as unique as we each are as people. On the other hand, there are universal patterns about this inner shift that Eckhart is referring to. One of these is expressed so succinctly by the description he uses of having a space develop between our sense of self and our thought processes. This space occurs and expands as we disidentify with our thought processes, and relate to them instead as a wonderful tool that we (an identity outside of them) use. In our lives up to this point, we have been fused with these thoughts that go through our minds, as if our ideas about ourselves are actually equivalent to who we are. When we stay in the present moment and notice that our thoughts are arising and are something quite separate from who we are, then a space is appearing. At first it may seem vague and fleeting, but over time if we keep giving this our attention, the space seems to widen and become permanent and “normal”. We notice our thoughts as if from a slight distance, as only being thoughts and not having anything to do with who we are. We no longer look to our thinking processes to provide us with crucial information about who we are, and so are freed in a wonderful way from reliance on our thoughts, feelings or circumstances conforming to our preferences. They no longer affect us in the same way.

This lack of reference to thinking for clues about our identity, doesn’t leave much possibility for using the past and future as focal points for our daily living. Past and future turn out to not exist outside of our thought processes. We can watch our thoughts creating both. Meanwhile it is all happening in a present moment that seems to be pregnant with possibility and vitality. When we stay with it enough to recognize the incredible beauty of the life force expressing itself around us in a myriad of forms, it can feel quite overwhelmingly and radiantly beautiful, no matter what the content of it is.

If what we are going to do today or how we are going to behave in a particular situation has been a compulsive recreating of the past (making today be much like yesterday and projecting that into tomorrow) we become freed from that. Although such freedom from the past is generally felt to be wonderful, what is sacrificed to get there is the knowing of what will be happening in the future. To the mind, this tends to be a profoundly unacceptable situation because of its need to control life, and mind may be making noisy complaints about that. The noise, however, is occurring on the sidelines of awareness once we are experiencing the space that we have been referring to. It is just mind doing what minds do, making noise and being a tool that is trying unsuccessfully to retain control over its rightful master, you. It no longer is needed for that particular job. You already know who you are.

As we allow the present moment to be the focal point of our lives, we are freed from the domination by our thoughts that has been the normal human condition for thousands of years. We are freed to live our lives without compulsive referencing to ideas about what is possible and the world opens up to us. We use the mind to reference practical thingswe don’t want to forget our phone number or forget how to cook dinner. Mind is the most amazing and practical tool when it comes into its rightful place of serving something beyond itself. And when it is not needed, it can rest. What is here in this focal point of the present moment then, is the simple yet vitally alive world that surrounds and includes us. We feel the wind in our hair again. We see the incredible vitality in the world around us—we see God (or call it Life, or Love) peeking at us out of everything. We experience the joy that every birdcall has all along been offering us. The veil of thinking has been lifted off of the world, and life as it is, including our own, can now be experienced.

Experiencing the world in this way is such an overwhelmingly wonderful experience that once it is felt, it forever remains as a motivation for the sometimes time-consuming process of learning to live it in the midst of everyday life. At first it may be that even little disturbances like a harsh word or a traffic jam with jump-start mind into such compelling noise that the experiencing of the present moment may not be possible until that event is long passed. But gradually over time, with steady attention to who we really are, we are able to stay conscious in the little things and only more charged and potent events can throw us. Gradually we come to live our whole lives in this new world. We have changed the focal point of our lives to the present moment, and our world reflects back to us the incredible gift of the Life that we have been given and that we are.

Readiness to Awaken, making ourselves fertile ground for new seed…

125x125wwl2.jpg

Has Oprah’s marketing call “get ready to awaken” bothered anyone else? It bothered me, but then it inspired the following words about how we might actually be able to do so:

Oprah has been telling us “prepare to be awakened” and people are signing up by the thousands. For many of us, this awakening thing is of utmost importanceit’s what our lives are all about. Others of us may be signing up with a simple curiosity or perhaps an inclination to argue. In either case, so often our minds want to know—how exactly can people prepare to awaken? How, in this particular ten weeks, can we allow ourselves to really awaken? We ask this whether we are currently in an organized religion or not. It doesn’t matter. If what Eckhart is saying is true, awakening can be possible for us no matter what our cultural or family history or religious beliefs. We have engaged in our belief systems in order to come to this point of stepping beyond them.

As we come to this point (becoming ready) we can lovingly embrace any of our tendencies to argue or to think too much (or whatever our perceived faults might be) with a gentle acceptance of the miracle of having arrived right here, at this exact place where we are now, here at the beginning of this course. This place, this moment, has an inherent openness to the possibility of spiritual awakening built into it. If we are in any way able to notice the noise that our minds are making such as “but tell me how?”, or “I can’t awaken because…” then we are noticing this mental hubbub from a place of a spaciousness in us that is always and already ready to awaken. This open spaciousness in our beings IS our readiness, or more accurately, it is the One that we are who already is awake. Just feel this. Be this one that you are. Stay right HERE. This is readiness to awaken. It is this open, spacious, don’t-know, place in us that gives Eckhart’s words have a place to land in our beings. If we think we know a lot of things about spiritual or other matters, then that openness is hidden under the noise of that. It is still there, but it is not accessible to us, and Eckhart’s words will fall on infertile ground. But with a simple openness we are able to both enjoy Eckhart and Oprah and enjoy ourselves, and decide for ourselves if what is being spoken about is true for us or not. No-one is asking anyone to believe anything. Just be open and see for yourselves what is of value here.

I feel able to advise in this way because Eckhart transformed my life so very dramatically back in 2002, and I’ve had years to wonder about how it was that I happened to be “ready” at that moment.

Blessings,

Alice

Eckart Tolle and Oprah A Landmark Event

A landmark interactive spiritual event is on the horizon. Starting Monday, March 3rd, Oprah Winfrey and best selling author and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle will team up to teach a live weekly webcast centered around Eckhart’s book “A New Earth”. This revolutionary webcast is being hailed “the biggest classroom ever”, and it is free. Already as of today 386,000 people have signed up!!
I signed up for this course myself. I long ago read “A New Earth”, and I loved it. I love Eckhart too and I want to see how he and Oprah are doing this thing together, that has such an amazing potential for reaching SO many people. I’ve had a leaning (perhaps obvious) for the amazing potential of the internet for reaching people who don’t otherwise have a lot of support in their own communities for the awakening process. I didn’t when it was happening for me in rural Vermont. The internet has amazing potential, and it looks to me like Eckhart and Oprah and trying something new and big. Below is basic information about this course. In order to sign up, if you haven’t already, you do need to join Oprah’s book club and then check the Eckhart event as one of the choices in her book club.
I am thrilled to say I will be participating in this breakthrough interactive event. Join us on this blog to discuss it as it unfolds, and to enjoy special resources that are being provided to me for just this purpose. Sign up is free at oprah.com/anewearth.

What do you suppose this means about our collective awakening?? We’ll see!
