No Destination

In the recognition of awareness there is no destination. There is no where that we are trying to get to, we can finally be comfortable with where we are and who we are. Finally all the searching for well-being comes to a stop, all the seeking to try and define and understand who we are naturally ends. We see everything clearly for the first time and we begin to see how incredible we really are. We begin to see how incredible we have always been. We begin to see what we are really capable of and how much we have to contribute to the world.

Once we see the effectiveness of taking short moments it becomes easy to commit to taking more short moments until awareness becomes continuous at all times. When short moments seem difficult to take then this is the time we need to reach out for support. Great Freedom offers an incredible worldwide support network that makes relying on awareness easy.

The more we recognise that our true identity is the sky-like space of awareness then the more natural we become in our behaviour. We see that there is no need to try to contrive a way of being as the importance we had formerly given to all our ideas gently relaxes. This is such a relief.

Just relax

Just relax and get to know the openness of perception that is necessary for any experience to be known. This recognition is not an intellectual pursuit but is simply an instinctive recognition of what is already the case. It really is not a complicated matter.

Merry Christmas

The greatest gift you can ever give yourself is to be found in a short moment of awareness. In that short moment you find inherent wisdom, compassion and complete well-being. What more could you possibly ask for?

Basic Knowledge

Without the basic knowledge that whatever occurs is inseparable from a ground of relaxed open ease we will never have access to real intelligence. The natural wisdom that is obvious when we look at the natural world is the same wisdom that we have access to when we instinctively recognise the true nature of all phenomena. From the narrow perspective of points of view we can never be truly innovative. However, the very instant we acknowledge the basic state of natural perfection we have a balanced view that sees everything exactly as it is. When we see everything exactly as it is we are able to make decisions that are naturally of benefit to ourselves and everyone else, we are no longer constrained by all the conceptual frameworks we have adopted. We become familiar with this basic knowledge by short moments, we then repeat this many times until it becomes continuous all of the time.

Warm hearted

It is such a joy to see that when I am not caught up in a web of description, desperately trying to make sense of all my thoughts, emotions and experiences, I actually have time for other people. I have time to really listen in a warm hearted way to whatever they have to say. I no longer have to try and prove to people I meet how clever, funny or cool I am. It is such a relief to be able to be completely natural in every situation, with whoever I am with.

Thank you Great Freedom and all the incredible support that is offered to make the instinctive recognition of awareness an everyday lived reality for so many.

It is such a relief not to be completely wrapped up in all my stories and descriptions. It was always a huge struggle to try and pin down exactly what was going on and I never really felt like I had a "handle" on life. All my frames of reference, all my labels, all my concepts are no longer the sole way in which I try to make sense of my experience of life. Simply by relying on the innate clarity of awareness I can now see exactly what is going on in any moment.

It is in each moment that we make the simple choice about how we are going to use our minds. Are we going to dive head first into the mire of descriptive frameworks or are we going to relax for a short moment and recognise the natural presence of sky-like awareness? It really is that simple.

Test it

Why not find out for yourself whether taking short moments of awareness makes a difference to your life? There is no way you can know unless you test it for yourself.

There is no destination to get to for us to be able to recognise awareness. It is only with the current perception that we have the incredible opportunity to recognise what is fundamental to every phenomena. This is a great relief as it means we don't have to change whatever is appearing but can recognise every perception as the dynamic energy of awareness. The power of short moment is that we can simply repeat this recognition again and again until we are absolutely certain that this is the case.

Awareness is completely indestructible and is never affected by any appearance, no matter how we describe or label the experience. This is similar to the way that sky is never affected by any of the appearances that appear within it. No storm, typhoon or hurricane ever affects the pristine, flawless nature of sky. The sky is always naturally present and wide-open. When we take a short moment to recognise our own awareness we discover that which is always stable, relaxed and wide-open like the sky.

Keep it simple. Recognise for short moments that whatever appears is inseparable from the Basic State of natural perfection.

Ask yourself if all the ideas and concepts that you accumulated throughout your life ever led you to a clear understanding of the fundamental nature of existence and well-being in every moment? If the answer is "no" then why not try relying on short moments of awareness and see what happens.
You might just find that all the understanding, all the ease and well-being that you sought are in fact accessible right here and now. Until you try you will never know.

Clear seeing

In a short moment of awareness we see everything exactly as it is. We come to know for ourselves the fundamental nature of every perception. We see how no phenomena can be held on to or pinned down. Each appearance is spontaneously self-releasing with nothing needing to be done for this to be the case.

Once we recognise this for ourselves then we can see everything clearly.

Once I saw that every single point of view effortlessly resolved without anything needing to be done I was really able to relax for the first time. I saw that it made absolutely no sense to be all wrapped up in my ideas and concerns when each and every one of them was a spacious appearance within awareness. There were no special ideas or emotions that I some how had to do something about, that were a threat to my well-being. The more I relied on awareness the more clearly I saw the nature of all points of view.

With this relief from no longer having to micro-manage all my endless thoughts and emotions I am more light hearted and carefree. I am naturally sensitive and open as I now see that I have nothing to defend.

Immediate benefit

The relief to be felt from the simple recognition of awareness as the source of every perception is immediate. We are not hoping to recognise awareness at some point in the future. Awareness can only be recognised right now with whatever the present moment perception happens to be.

In this instinctive recognition we cut straight through all intellectual speculation about awareness or anything else. We find that we are already super-complete and that absolutely everything rests in a ground of natural perfection.

Awareness has never been caught up in any perception, it is always completely wide-open like the sky. Just as the sky is never affected by any of the phenomena that occur within it awareness is never affected by any of the phenomena that appear within it.

Your perception is always completely wide-open, never affected by any of your thoughts, emotions, sensations or other experiences. By coming to this conclusion for ourselves, by taking short moments of the instinctive recognition of our own always clear awareness, we see that there is a pristine ground of total ease that is always accessible. With the growing confidence in awareness as the root of all experience comes a balanced view, where we are no longer at the mercy of all our unpredictable thoughts and emotions. Instead we are grounded in our fundamental nature, relaxed, wide-open awareness.

It is only by relying on the clarity of awareness that true innovation becomes possible. When we approach a situation from the vantage of natural clarity then we are no longer limited by any of our pre-conceptions. In fact we are not limited at all and can allow the spontaneous responsiveness that is our natural condition to inform our actions and speech.

I see again and again how effortless and carefree life can be once I decide to rely on awareness. The natural intelligence that is the essence and source of every perception is always completely relaxed and open to endless possibility. The practical application of this in our lives leads to decisions that are naturally compassionate and of immediate benefit to us and the people we love.

In the instinctive recognition of awareness there is no destination. Since awareness is the essence of this present moment we don't need to go anywhere to find awareness. This makes is very simple. Nowhere to go and nothing needing to be changed for us to recognise what is primary in every experience. With this effortless recognition we see everything clearly just as it is.
