The Exploration

As we explore the realm of consciousness, we explore the deepest corners of ourselves. Peeling layers to find the core that is the spirit. For the spirit is contained beyond the body and beyond all the earthly things that limit us.

The real boundary to reach our soul is the mind, the mind is both the boundary and the way. As we explore, we use the mind until it observes itself and becomes aware of its limitations. When this happens, we recognize that through the heart the spirit talks loud and clear.

Consciousness has a paradoxical nature, because we are it. Alan Watts said that trying to explain consciousness is like trying to bite our own teeth.

The reason this is true is because we are the actual consciousness, there’s nothing to look for, there only something to realize, the become, to be it. In fact, there’s nothing to do, nothing to seek, nothing to find, just to be.

To be it, we continue to dive into the mind until it observes that within its own limitations lies its own infinity. It is literally a mind-blowing process to go through and to hold that information becomes overwhelming at times until there is total acceptance of our true nature.

It is when we are able to explore and rest in that experiential knowledge that we begin to truly rip the fruits of our journey and begin manifesting the life of our dreams.

It is good to note that there’s nothing linear in reality. Only the mind sees linearity. So to manifest the life of our dreams we don’t need to realize our ultimate truth. But once we do see that ultimate truth in our experience, life shifts in ways that words fail to explain.

Any endeavor we set forth with our hearts will uncover, if we pay attention, our ultimate power of being. Goals set by the heart feel blissful. We can follow our hearts to connect with the Ultimate Truth to improve our lives or for material wishes such as building the largest business empire on earth. If you stay true to nature, help others, do good, while benefiting economically, as long as we don’t corrupt ourselves with mind-made distortions, the goal will feel light, blissful.

Even in difficulties, and crisis. Because living from our heart removes the illusion of suffering, and allow us to experience the intensity of the moment, whatever it may be. It makes us feel alive in all the spectrums of experience, feelings, and thoughts.

Self-exploration is an unlimited frontier, an unlimited event-horizon, an infinity within an infinity.

Where does spirituality begins and where does it end? There’s no reference point, no parting line. The present moment is where everything happens, everything is manifested, everything unfolds. We are already rooted in the infinite.

Contemplate, embrace and surrender to this truth and life will taste different, freer, more real, more alive.
