Update: The Sophia Series Year 3 ~ Let Your Energy Flow


A ♥Heart Consciousness Note To The Creative Partners:
I am reposting this timeless message from Lea Hamann and the Energies of The Feminine Within ALL of Us. So many so called 'new age or spiritual ones or creative ones' continue to side step a major major Piece of their own personal Peace.

I continue to hear lots and lots of intellectual talk that glides by the simple allowance and letting go. One of the keys is allowing all 'energy' or conscious feelings to flow. If you only focus on the love and light aspects of your being, you have not yet embraced all of YOU and of course, it becomes heavy weights hanging on or over your new creations. And as my 'Starseed Family' ~The Sophia, Merlin and Magdalene Energies ~ emphasize in this 'reposting' of a Note, the more you allow all of your roots to breathe, the greater your expression and expansion.

It may be sensed and breathed in/out with Fresh Eyes as you consider The New Questions:

What Are You Inspired To Create?
And Why Isn't It Happening?
What Aspect Are You Serving?
Do you prefer to Be With Suffering?
Or Are You Ready to Let Your Energy Flow
and Start Living Again?

And so We Begin Again...
With Love, Margo Renay

LET YOUR ENERGY FLOW
The Sophia Series ~ Year 3
via Lea Hamann
www.eelea.com


And so we begin together.
As I, Sophia, enter into this now moment in order to spend some time with you. I allow my energy to flow into this space so that you are able to perceive me, so that you are able to feel my love and so that my wisdom may speak to you.

I, Sophia, invite you wherever you may be right now, whatever you are busy with, whatever is concerning you - I invite you to pause for a moment, to take a little break while you are reading or listening to this channeling. I invite you to just sit back, to just observe your feelings, your body, to just observe everything that is moving within you. Feel this stillness and come to rest – this is my invitation for you.

At this time there is so much in motion on your planet. And this movement is not always harmonious. Many human beings are experiencing an imbalance caused by the inner changes that they are going through right now - be it an emotional imbalance, a physical imbalance or simply an imbalance between the feminine and masculine energies. And I invite you to perceive for a moment how it might be helpful for you to not even try to adjust to the imbalances of other human beings or even pay attention to it. Instead allow yourself to perceive for a moment something that is in continuous balance; to perceive something that wants to support you in regaining your own balance.

For our gathering today we have invited the energy of the forests of this earth; the energy of the forests in Europe, in Asia, in America; the energy of the forests all over the world. We have invited this energy so that it may surround you; surround you as when you walk within the forest and each tree and the entire ecosystem invites you to rebalance. In each moment invites you to return back to you, to your center and allow your life force energy to flow again.

If you like, breathe in the energy of the forests; allow this energy to pour into your living room, to surround you and help you to regain your natural balance. Each tree breathes, each plant breathes; each energy in a forest is flowing, expanding, evolving. It is a community where each single organism has its place; each bird that is sitting on the branch, each ant that is crawling over the ground, each blade of grass, each bit of moss, each leaf, each plant, each bush, each tree: everything has its place, everything is growing, everything is flowing and nothing disturbs the other – far from it! Each energy supports one another.

Can you let yourself feel what it’s like when energies are flowing and each energy supports one another; how a growing and blossoming tree supports the soil, the other trees around him, the animals and even the human beings who walk through the forest. Can you allow yourself to feel that no energy has to hold itself back, no energy has to deny itself, no energy has to be ashamed but that each energy may allow itself to flow, each energy supports one another. And that is exactly what the forest wants to show you, he invites you to experience just this; this inner attitude that helps you to let the energies flow again within your ecosystem.

You see: because human beings have minds they often find it difficult to let their energies flow. Each time they begin to let their energies flow and perceive a fear - they stop – they stop the fear that wanted to flow and stop the healing that wanted to happen quite naturally all by itself. They stop this natural flow and return to their minds. Their mind then says: “Wait a minute, there is fear. Why is there fear? What have I done wrong that suddenly fear has surfaced? What should I do now to get rid of the fear? What should I do to prevent the fear from coming up at all?” and so on.

The mind intervenes and brings the natural flow of energies to a total standstill. And so the fear that just wanted to begin flowing, that just wanted to be released to regain a natural balance remains – it stands still, it stagnates and your body, your emotions, your energetic system must carry some more weight. Your muscles must hold onto more and your emotions are not able to be expressed because there is something that now has to be held. Even your life force energy is no longer able to flow freely because she is busy holding onto something; for instance this sadness, this desperation, this undefined negative emotion within you.

***
Some of you who are permitting yourselves to walk this new path, this new path back to your center, back into balance, back into your true being have discovered that during the past month many energies have started to return to your consciousness.

And you have perceived some of them as negative.

Old layers of emotions and experiences that had settled within you like rock formations have now appeared at the surface because of your increasing clarity and your willingness to proceed. And what happened as you perceived these energies, some of them perhaps painful?

Your mind intervened and judged you - told you that you have done something wrong, told you that you had better take control of these energies and get rid of them as soon as possible. It took you straight into fear and self-doubt wondering if you are doing things right, wondering why your emotions are suddenly so strong, why your body is responding the way it is, why this is all happening right now.

And I, Sophia, invite you today to realize how truly courageous you are. You are so courageous to have dared to perceive these old emotions again, old memories, old energies that you have buried deep, that you have hidden deep within you all of your life. And now at this time you are courageous enough, you feel safe enough, open enough to let even these energies come to the surface.

And I, Sophia, invite you to stop doubting yourself, to stop listening to your mind and its verdict that is being returned to you. I, Sophia, invite you to celebrate your courage and to be proud of yourself. Can you be proud of the fear that is now appearing that you have carried deep within you all of your life? Can you be proud of the tension that is now showing up in your body that you have hidden deep within you for such a long time, such a long time? Can you be proud of the rage that is now surfacing that you have concealed deep within you that you have held onto for such a long time? Can you be proud of your courage that you are allowing more and more of yourself to flow again, to live again?



Can you take the next step on your path that you have already started?


You see: it is unfair to punish yourself or doubt yourself for something that is actually very courageous, for something that is pioneering work; for something that is helping you and the world around you to come into a new balance.For the world you live in has a burning question for each one of you. And this question is: How can we let all of the layers of energy that have accumulated over eons of time, all of the layers of energy that have accumulated over all the eras that human beings have been living here on earth– how can we let this energy flow again?

How can we get this energy of the earth that has stagnated to start flowing again in a tender and soft way? How can we let these energies flow again: the consciousness of human beings that is almost gridlocked, the history of human beings that carries with it such huge burdens and sorrow?And can you acknowledge that you are finding a new answer to this question right now? Not because you are contemplating it, not because you are reading a book and thinking about it but because you have started to bring the stuck consciousness of your inner world into a flow again; because you bring your old stagnant emotions into a flow again, because you let your life force flow again.

You have just begun to let this flow. And whenever we just begin to let anything flow the positive as well as the negative wants to be freed. What you like wants to flow: the joy, the inspiration, the physical energy that your body needs to move, the creativity, expression and wisdom - all that wants to flow again.


But the other side of your life also wants to flow: the fear, the sadness, the heaviness, the loneliness, confusion and rejection - all these energies want to flow again as well.

You see: it doesn’t make sense to refuse these energies for as you’ve already noticed, you must feel them as long as you hold them within. As long as you hold these energies within you will have pain in the muscles of your body. As long as you hold onto the fear deep within, you will find yourself in situations that make you feel anxious or frighten you. As long as you hold onto the sorrow you will always find yourself back at this lake of sadness deep within you; this sadness within you that is bigger than you could ever weep out, much deeper, much bigger. This lake of sadness is so big.As long as you hold onto these energies within you have to feel them, or we could go even further and say not only feel them but also suffer. For in reality when energies flow and we acknowledge them there is a very reassuring feeling of relief. It’s like a lake that was dammed up for so long, where so much water was held back and not allowed to flow, and then suddenly this lake forms a river that is allowed to stream. It brings relief, it brings clarity; it brings in the New and lets flow the Old. This is the difference between stagnating and flowing energy.

I, Sophia, invite you to understand: to hold onto energies means to suffer. Suffering has become an expert practice of human beings. Everybody knows how to do it: to cling onto something and then suffer.

Everybody knows what it’s like to feel this pain within your body and to hang onto it and feel it over and over again and nothing changes. Most human beings know what it’s like to feel the same fear over and over again; over and over again the same fear. To experience how this fear comes into your life over and over again and nothing changes. Nothing gets better; nothing gets easier by suffering this fear over and over again.But at this point you have a new option. You don’t have to settle for feeling these energies and suffering from them.

I, Sophia, invite you to perceive: Can you also begin to let the painful energies within you flow? Your mind doesn’t know how this works. But your breath that is flowing continuously through your body invites you to remember what energy that is flowing feels like. Everything that your breath touches is invited to flow. Your breath touches the fear that is knotted deep within you. Your breath touches the lake of sadness that is contained deep within you. Your breath touches the rage and the hatred that are stuck and stagnating deep within you.

And your breath is like a gentle breeze that brushes by these energies and invites them: Come with me, we shall flow again. Come with me, we shall become soft and let all these stuck energies flow again.


For the good news is: As it is you who holds onto these energies, it is also you who is able to release these energies, release these energies so that they may flow again.

Oh, some of you are wondering why it hasn’t worked so well up until now to just let go. You see: you can let go but if your breath, your life force doesn’t flow then although you release the energy it doesn’t know what to do. It simply remains within you. To let go is only the beginning. If we then add the conscious breath - so we become soft and let the breath flow, we surrender and let go; this letting go together with letting the breath flow will bring the change, the clearing, the clarity, the healing.

If you want to feel what flowing energy feels like, energy that isn’t restricted, that isn’t dammed up, that isn’t imbalanced - then observe the forest that surrounds you. Allow yourself to feel the forest or walk in the forest and feel the soft flowing that moves through everything, that keeps everything alive and allows everything to regenerate, to rejuvenate, to heal.

Smell the odor - it is a fresh, pure smell. And although there are many trees dying in this forest, there are also many new ones that are just sprouting – and it smells wonderful. And you can let yourself feel that the forest is in harmony with everything that is happening. You see: the forest allows the leaving, the forest allows the becoming, the forest lets all his energies flow and is therefore in perfect balance.

But human beings often want to let only one side of their life flow and hold on tightly to the other side which then stagnates. Some of you only want to bring the new into your life, but don’t want to accept the old and let it flow. And that doesn’t work you see.


*** I, Sophia, enter here today with an invitation for you: to let your life force and all the energies within you flow again; to not hold onto them any longer, to not cramp your hand trying to grip everything so tightly to keep it out of sight but to trust the natural flow within you, the natural flow within you.

And some of you have already noticed that today the energy of Merlin is once again our guest. Merlin who has already worked with a group of humans to let their energies flow again, to let their energies that are so near and have been hidden for so, so long to flow again.

And today we continue the experience. Today we invite you to let your energy flow and to understand: Until your energy flows again, your deeper potential can not reveal itself. That is to say – as some of you have wondered: Why has my potential not manifested? Why has money not arrived into my bank account? Why haven’t I found a new job, a new place to live, a new partner? And the answer is quite simple: because your energy isn’t flowing. At least a part of your energy is not flowing. And so then how shall the new pour in when you have literally shut off the supply? You can choose as much as you want and as often as you want to bring in your potential - but as long as your energy isn’t flowing then how shall it come in?

Imagine a tree whose energy isn’t flowing to its branches, its trunk, its roots anymore. The energy is obstructed, stuck, and then stagnates. Imagine if the tree had a mind and wished to bring in a new potential. He would say: I choose my potential; I allow it to come in. And what would happen? Nothing. He could choose again each and every day: I choose my potential, I allow it to come in. And what would happen? Nothing.

Nothing would happen until the moment that the tree begins to breathe. Until the tree begins to breathe in the love of the sky into every single leaf that he has and lets it flow deep into the earth - and then lets the power, the warmth, the strength of the earth flow back through every single root that he has, into his trunk, his branches, the leaves, upwards to the sky. When the tree begins to breathe, he begins to live, his energy begins to flow.

And now the tree says: Oh, I would like to let a new potential pour in. And what happens? It begins to flow in with each breath. Each moment he lets his energy flow the new potential pours in and becomes more and more visible as time goes by.

Allow yourself to feel honestly, not to judge yourself but to gain more clarity: How does your energy flow? Do you feel the soft flowing throughout your body - your belly, your legs, your arms? Do you feel that your life force is flowing and that your emotions – both your pleasant and painful ones - have permission to loosen, to flow and come into balance again? Do you allow the natural flow of your energy? Or do you notice that your energy flows only sporadically? Do you notice that there are areas where your energy doesn’t flow, where nothing moves, that are not alive? Do you notice that there is pain that you’re holding onto; that there are emotions, memories you’re holding onto? Do you notice a stubborn blockage within you that clings tightly to everything, brings everything to a standstill?


I, Sophia, together with Merlin, invite you to be very honest with yourself. For only if you are totally honest with yourself and you begin to feel where you really are - what is really possible for you right now and what isn’t quite possible yet - will you be able to take the next step. Otherwise your mind will trick you and tell you a bunch of stories over and over again; tell you another reason why your potential doesn’t unfold; tell you another reason why your shoulders still hurt, tell you another reason why you still experience the same fears.

And I, Sophia, invite you to notice: we keep it so simple that we don’t need to involve the mind. We keep it so simple that we only observe if our energy is restricted or flowing. We invite you to become so still that you are able to perceive the flow of your energy and the areas where you still hold onto it. And maybe you feel comfortable here in this space to become a little bit softer, to surrender a little bit more, to let your breath flow a little bit more, to let your life force energy flow a little bit more. A little bit more than before.
***This is our invitation for each one of you.

And if you master letting your own energy flow you will have an answer – not only for yourself but for the whole world, for the consciousness of every human that is so desperately searching for a new answer right now: How can these energies on earth flow again, these energies that are so stuck? How can the war zones on this earth get their energies flowing again? How can even the energy of war that is so stuck and stagnating flow again and come into balance? How can the energy of poverty flow again and come into balance? How can all the energies that are so imbalanced and cause human beings so much suffering flow again, become neutral and rebalance?

And you see: as soon as even the most negative energy begins to flow again it is no longer painful, it is no longer threatening, it is no longer hurtful but simply pure energy, flowing energy that has regained its center. And if we allow even the energy of war, of duality to flow again then we will no longer perceive it as negative but see it as a neutral, revitalizing energy that enriches and supports the earth.


This is the difference between stagnating and flowing energy.

Energies that are stagnating create so much sorrow. Energies that are flowing create so much new life, so much healing, so much balance. And if you would like an example, an inspiration: Look at the forests – look at photos of the forest or take a walk into the forest and feel the energy, the energy that lets everything, everything flow; each animal, each plant, everything is allowed to flow. And observe - if you stay in the forest for a while, observe. Observe how everything within you tries to flow again, to move again, to harmonize again as well.

This is our invitation for each one of you.

And we want to invite you to stay here another moment with us, within this beautiful energy of change; to stay here another moment with yourself, to lean back, to let your breath flow, to enjoy how a little bit more within you begins to flow, how a little bit more within you awakens to new life.
***

And we have one more guest with us here today. And it is the energy of Mary Magdalene who enters this space; who is a sister-energy to I, Sophia, and who has already accompanied us for some time.

And before Mary Magdalene starts her work with her groups we have invited her to come and spend some time with each one of you, to invite you to perceive her energy that she has just begun to let flow again.


The energy of Mary Magdalene, the feminine alchemist has begun to let her energies flow onto the earth again; her energies that haven’t been noticeable, that haven’t been visible for more than 2000 years. And you could almost say that this energy had come to a standstill as well before the time was ready to perceive this energy again. Human beings hadn’t been open enough to feel her energy, to perceive her presence. And only now, 2000 years after her appearance here on this earth we are invited along with her to experience, to celebrate this awakening and flowing of her energy again.


Mary Magdalene invites each one of you to leave your hiding place and allow yourself to be here, to emerge, to begin to speak again, to let your voice be heard again, to let your energy flow again and really and truly be a vibrant human being.


Mary Magdalene and her energy and this precious blossoming that began a few years ago and takes place right now invites each one of you, no matter if you feel connected to her energy or not, invites each one of you to return to life, to return to the natural flow of your soul, of your being, of your breath.


***
And so we bring the energy of our shared gathering to an end. You will notice that it doesn’t require a lot of words. But it does require a lot of willingness to feel and experience in order to let our messages arrive deeply within you.


We consciously choose less words and more meaning; meaning that you are able to feel. Meaning that is addressed to an authority within you that is beyond your mind, to an authority that dwells in a much deeper place within you: your wisdom, your sense for balance, for flowing and stagnation. We talk to this wisdom; we invite you to hear this wisdom.

You have good reason to be proud of yourself. You have good reason to celebrate your courage, your courage that allows so much to surface, so much to flow that was stuck for so long. Don’t allow your mind to judge you. Don’t allow other human beings who are not on this path to judge you. Don’t allow anyone to judge you.


You have good reason to be proud of yourself, to trust yourself and to let the natural flow of your energy continue to flow.


And so we begin together.

About Channeling:
Channeling is about receiving energy. It is an invitation for you, dear reader, to open for more of yourself and become more conscious. As you read this text you are most welcome to decide for yourself what feels right for you and what doesn’t. There is no such thing as an absolute truth that is valid for everyone. There are many truths and you may choose the one that resonates with you today. On your path of spiritual awakening this may indeed change. Sophia’s extends her love and support if you wish to receive it, right where you are in this moment - you don’t have to do a thing in return.

About Sophia:
Sophia is a feminine energy supporting the awakening and evolution of humanity with her understanding and wisdom. Her messages are simple and profound. Lea Hamann has been working for some time in her personal and professional life with Sophia’s energy. In 2007 Lea started to channel Sophia publicly. Sophia has accompanied us since then in monthly channels called the Sophia-Series. She assists us in rediscovering the feminine energy of our soul.

Feminine energy doesn’t necessarily mean being female. Both men and women have a feminine part of their soul. This feminine principle helps us to receive abundance, to develop our creations and to live our life in deep trust. In today’s world most humans have a tendency to be imbalanced as they rely much more on their masculine energy. Sophia has emphasized many times how important it is to be connected to the feminine energy in order to enjoy a loving and balanced life.

The 'Encounters' of the Sophia-Series are currently available free of charge on the website http://www.eelea.de/ You are invited to let yourself be touched by Sophia’s love.

About Lea Hamann:
Lea Hamann, born in 1982, works as a teacher and compassionate guide to humans on their path of spiritual awakening. She teaches conscious breathing and the re-connection to the feminine energy through private sessions and workshops. Sophia’s wisdom is an inseparable part of Lea’s work. Sophia’s love is always present in her sessions and workshops. Lea Hamann is currently living with her partner Matthias Kreis in Königstein, Germany, near Frankfurt.

Eyes of The Heart ~ by Margo Renay Sullivan ~ featuring the film 'Radio'



Push pause on music box before playing video.

My Heart Consciousness Note
This particular film, Radio, and the song, Eyes of the Heart, by India.Arie touches the very soul of my being for it challenges all of our perceptions as to Who is God/Goddess?

It questions the very nature of the heart and its loving perfections on this Earth stage. The character Radio lays no claim to the highest orders or the grandest divine mind and yet has claimed the immense heart and soul of an entire community ~

IS it sorrow? Is it pity?


NOT at all.


The character depicted in Radio captures the universal Fresh Eyes magnified through the Open Heart and YOU the Creator enters with the Key. You see, in these times,it takes a profound and courageous soul to play such a role or wear such a cloak as a healer, teacher and student.


It takes an 'academy award winner' to become the chameleon of love and for love of all of creation.

You may argue the merits of the performance or the karmic reasons for its choice ~ yet when you can see clearly through such eyes, I assure you the energy will astound you...and fill you.

YOU will 'See Through' Your Divine Heart ~ You will See Your Divine Eyes Running All Your Team Rays and Chakras...And feel the Impact of Your True Nature of Expanded Existence. Then you will again focus less on healing the past and inspire the present moments with fresh experiences AS seen from the pallet of the Conscious Inspirations.

IAM LOVE.~o theta ~

EYES OF THE HEART ~ INDIA.ARIE
from the original soundtrack of RADIO

Close your eyes
The physical can be so blind
In my eyes
The innocent can be so wise
It's not about black or white
This is wrong or right
Can you take a stranger
And treat him like your stranger

Love don't start with the eyes
Starts with the heart
Look deep down inside
In all that you have a chance
To make a choice, to make a change
So make the choice to look with the eyes of your heart

Close your eyes
The light of love will lead the way
In the eyes of a child
We're all the same
If we're all God's children
The logic is so simple
The one you call stranger is really your brother

Love don't start with the eyes
Starts with the heart
Look deep down inside
In all that you have a chance
To make a choice, to make a change
So make the choice to look with the eyes of your heart

No I don't mean to preach
Some may say that it's unrealistic
Cause none of us is perfect
But the way that I say it
What do you just try to see with different eyes
Could you see that what is done to you is done to me?
We want humanity yeah

Oh, love don't start with the eyes
Starts with the heart
Look deep down inside
In all that you have a chance
To make a choice, to make a change
So make the choice to look with the eyes of...

Love don't start with the eyes
Starts with the heart
Look deep down inside
You have the chance
To make a choice, to make a change
So take the chance
To make a choice, to make a change
So make the choice to look with the eyes of your heart.

Jose Antonio Abreu ~ El Sistema

This is How Music Heals...
Through the Divine Human Being.
That hears the unseen harmonies
And Creates the sounds of Equality
By re-qualifying the Scales.
~ Margo Renay Sullivan ~

TED TALKS SERIES ~
Febraury 2009
www.ted.com/talks/

Jose Antonio Abreu is the charismatic founder of a youth orchestra system that has transformed thousands of kids' lives in Venezuela. Here he shares his amazing story and unveils a TED Prize wish that could have a big impact in the US and beyond.







Jose Antonio Abreu: Maestro
Jose Antonio Abreu founded El Sistema ("the system") in 1975 to help poor Venezuelan kids learn to play a musical instrument and be part of an orchestra. 30 years on, El Sistema has seeded 102 youth orchestras -- and many happy lives.


Why you should listen to him:
The gulf between the rich and the poor in Venezuela is one of the worst in the world. Jose Antonio Abreu, an economist, musician, and reformer, founded El Sistema ("the system") in 1975 to help Venezuelan kids take part in classical music. After 30 years (and 10 political administrations), El Sistema is a nationwide organization of 102 youth orchestras, 55 children's orchestras, and 270 music centers -- and close to 250,000 young musicians.


El Sistema uses music education to help kids from impoverished circumstances achieve their full potential and learn values that favor their growth.

The talented musicians have become a source of national pride. Several El Sistema students have gone on to major international careers, including Gustavo Dudamel, soon to be the music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic,and the bassist Edicson Ruiz, who at 17 became the youngest musician ever to join the Berlin Philharmonic.



There is a simple concept behind Abreu's work: for him an orchestra is first and foremost about together­ness, a place where children learn to listen to each other and to respect one another. "Music has to be recognized as an ... agent of social development in the highest sense, because it transmits the highest values -- solidarity, harmony, mutual compassion. And it has the ability to unite an entire community and to express sublime feelings." ~José Antonio Abreu

Re-Post: Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? ~ Margo Renay



GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER?
Written by Margo Renay Sullivan
May, 2009

After listening and reading today, I AM so aware of the desire of so many to be still and yet we all find it difficult to remain silent and listen to our Soul Essence knocking on the Inner Back Door and even the Side Windows...knock knock....tap tap. "Who is IT?" we say out loud with a bit of annoyance...AND a few choice words to boot. (excuse my French...since I can't re-member it anymore)

We invited our Presence to enjoy our GRAND FEAST in motion...Our PICNIC of LIFE in these present moments. Yet upon its arrival, with its invitation in hand, we have a childish meltdown and slam the Inner Door shut. We have all felt this...WHO IS IT?

It feels like the ants stormed into our Feast and ransacked our beautiful spread...and then filed out with the "Real" basket and we are left with chicken bones and cheap red wine (you know the one our Friends won't even breath or taste)...just as the skies let loose.

We are accustomed to "defending" our forms and choices and battling for the RIGHT to choose in form. It is appropriate to 'feel' these feelings...To 'feel' our own personal knowing and YET, how do we 'invite' the Presence of our Soul to the Feast...especially when the little guy and gal begins to throw a tantrum yelling out and bolts the Inner Doors? Our Consciousness or Essence will not force the door open and barge in. It's so called fingers and toes cannot be hurt or caught in the slamming of the Inner Doors and Windows...no matter how many times we open and shut our Presence out.

It simply waits with its invitation in hand.


~~~~~~~
So, with a nudge from my Presence, I AM sharing these beautiful yet practical re-minders that I re-read today and truly truly smiled at its relevance in this grand moment.


Selected Excerpts ~ 
ECKHART TOLLE'S ~ A NEW EARTH:

Chapter 8 ~
THE DISCOVERY OF INNER SPACE


Recognizing Inner Space 
"Many poets and sages throughout the ages have observed that true happiness~I call it the joy of Being~is found in simple, seemingly unremarkable things. Most people, in their restless search for something significant to happen to them, continuously miss the insignificant, which may not be insignificant at all. The philosopher Nietzsche, in a rare moment of deep stillness, wrote, 'For happiness, how little suffices for happiness!...the least thing precisely, the gentlest thing, the lightest thing, a lizard's rustling, a breath, a wink, an eye glance~little maketh up the best happiness. Be Still.'


Why is it the 'least thing' that makes up 'the best happiness'? Because true happiness is not caused by the thing or event, although this is how it first appears. The thing or event is so subtle, so unobtrusive, that it takes up only a small part of your consciousness~and the rest is inner space, consciousness itself unobstructed by form. Inner Space consciousness and who you are in your essence are one and the same.


In other words, the form of little things leaves room for inner space. And it is from inner space, the unconditioned consciousness itself, that true happiness, the joy of Being, emanates. To be aware of little, quiet things, however, you need to be quiet inside. A high degree of alertness is required. Be still. Look. Listen. Be present.


Here is another way of finding inner space: Become conscious of being conscious. Say or think "I AM" and add nothing to it. Be aware of the stillness that follows the I AM. Sense your presence, the naked, unveiled, unclothed Beingness. It is untouched by young or old, rich or poor, good or bad, or any other attributes.. It is the spacious womb of all creation, all form."


Stillness
"It has been said 'Stillness is the language God speaks, and everything else is a bad translation.' Stillness is really another word for space. Becoming conscious of stillness whenever we encounter it in our lives will connect us with the formless and timeless dimension within ourselves, that which is beyond thought, beyond ego.

It may be the stillness that pervades the world of nature, or the stillness in your room in the early hours of the morning, or the silent gaps in between sounds. Stillness has no form~that is why through thinking we cannot become aware of it. Thought is form. Being aware of stillness means to be still. To be still is to be conscious without thought. You are never more essentially, more deeply, yourself that when you are still.

When you are still, you are who you are beyond your temporal existence; consciousness~unconditioned, formless, eternal."



 
Chapter 10 ~
A NEW EARTH

Awakened Doing
"...Awakened doing is the outer aspect of the next stage in the evolution of consciousness on our planet. The closer we get to the end of our present evolutionary stage, the more dysfunctional the ego becomes, in the same way that a caterpillar becomes dysfunctional just before it transforms into a butterfly. But the new consciousness is arising even as the old dissolves.

We are in the midst of a momentous event in the evolution of human consciousness, but they won't be talking about it in the news tonight. On our planet, and perhaps simultaneously in many parts of our galaxy and beyond, consciousness is awakening from the dream of form. This does not mean all forms (the world) are going to dissolve, although quite a few almost certainly will."

"It means consciousness can now begin to create form without losing itself in it.


It can remain conscious of itself, even while it creates and experiences form. Why should it continue to create and experience form? For the enjoyment of it. How does consciousness do that? Through awakened humans who have learned the meaning of awakened doing.


Awakened doing is the alignment of your outer purpose~what you do~with your inner purpose~awakening and staying awake. Through awakened doing, you become one with the outgoing purpose of the universe. Consciousness flows through you into this world. It flows into your thoughts and inspires them. It flows into what you do and guides and empowers it.


Not what you do, but how you do what you do determines whether you are fulfilling your destiny. And how you do what you do is determined by your state of consciousness.


A reversal of your priorities comes about when the main purpose for doing what you do becomes the doing itself, or rather, the current of consciousness that flows into what you do. That current of consciousness is what determines quality.


Another way of putting it: In any situation and in whatever you do, your state of consciousness is the primary factor; the situation and what you do is secondary. 'Future' success is dependent upon and inseparable from the consciousness out of which the actions emanate. that can be either the reactive force of the ego or the alert attention of awakened consciousness. All truly successful action comes out of that field of alert attention, rather than from ego and conditioned, unconscious thinking."


The Three Modalities of Awakened Doing

"There are three ways in which consciousness can flow into what you do and thus through you into this world, three modalities in which you can align your life with the creative power of the universe. Modality means the underlying energy frequency that flows into what you do and connects your actions with the awakened consciousness that is emerging into this world.


What you do will be dysfunctional and of the ego unless it arises out of one of these three modalities. They may change during the course of a day, although one of them may be dominant during a certain stage in your life. Each modality is appropriate to certain situations.


The modalities of awakened doing are acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm.


Each one represent a certain vibrational frequency of consciousness. You need to be vigilant to make sure that one of them operates whenever you are engaged in doing anything at all~from the most simple task to the most complex.

If you are not in the state of either acceptance, enjoyment, or enthusiasm, look closely and you will find that you are creating suffering for yourself and others."

Acceptance
"...Whatever you cannot enjoy doing, you can at least accept that this is what you have to do. Acceptance means; For now, this is what this situation, this moment, requires me to do, and so I do it willingly."


....For example, you probably won't be able to enjoy changing the flat tire on your car at night in the middle of nowhere and in pouring rain, let alone be enthusiastic about it, but you can bring acceptance to it.


"...If you can neither enjoy or bring acceptance to what you do~stop. Otherwise, you are not taking responsibility for the only thing you can really take responsibility for, which also happens to be one that really matters; your state of consciousness."


Enjoyment
"....On the New Earth, enjoyment will replace wanting as the motivating power behind people's actions. Wanting arises from the ego's delusion that you are a separate fragment tht is disconnected from the power that lies behind all creation. Through enjoyment, you link into that universal create power itself."


"...When you make the present moment, instead of past and future, the focal point of your life, your ability to enjoy what you do~and with it the quality of your life~increases dramatically. Joy is the dynamic aspect of Being."


"...It isn't the action you perform that you really enjoy, but the deep sense of aliveness that flows into it. That aliveness is one with who you are. This means that when you enjoy doing something, you are really experiencing the joy of Being in its dynamic aspect."


Enthusiasm

"...Enthusiasm means there is deep enjoyment in what you do plus the added element of a goal or a vision that you work toward."


"....When you want to arrive at your goal more that you want to be doing what you are doing, you become stressed. The balance between enjoyment and structural tension is lost, and the latter has won. When there is stress, it is usually a sign that the ego has returned, and you are cutting yourself off from the creative power of the universe."


"...Unlike stress, enthusiasm has a high energy frequency and so resonates with the creative power of the universe."


"...With enthusiasm, you will find that you don't have to do it all by yourself. In fact, there is nothing of significance that you can do by yourself."


"...Unlike egoic wanting, which creates opposition in direct proportion to the intensity of its wanting, enthusiasm never opposes. It is non-confrontational. Its activity does not create winners and losers. It is based on inclusion, not exclusion of others. It does not need to use and manipulate people, because it is the power of creation itself and so does not need to take energy from some secondary source."


"...The ego's wanting, always tries to take from something or someone; enthusiasm gives out of its own abundance. When enthusiasm encounters obstacles in the form of adverse situations or uncooperative people, it never attacks, but walks around them or by yielding or embracing turns the opposing energy into a helpful one, the foe into a friend."


"...An Enlarged image of yourself or a vision of yourself having this or that are all static goals and therefore don't empower you. Instead, make sure your goals are dynamic, that is to say, point toward an activity that you are engaged in and through which you are connected to other human beings as well as to the whole."


"...All this implies that your goal or vision is then already a reality within you, on the level of mind and of feeling. Enthusiasm is the power that transfers the mental blueprint into the physical dimension. That is the creative use of mind...."

And finally, one of my favorite wisdom Quotes from Eckhart...


"Nothing is going to make us free beacuse only the present moment can make us FREE. That realization is the awakening.  Awakening as a future event has no meaning because awakening is the realization of Presence."

Tap tap...knock. knock.
