Your peace equals world peace. When we see that we have the option to emphasise our own innate peaceful nature and not solely focus on the descriptive frameworks we have used to try and find a peaceful way of life then we discover something quite amazing. We find that we always have the choice in how we want to use our minds. Do we want to live from the narrow perspective of concepts and ideas or do we want to relax and rely on the peaceful basis of every thought? Once we see that we can live life in a way that ends all the internal war then we begin to see that the far off fantasy of world peace may in fact be a possibility...

Simple choice

It is quite incredible to see how such a simple choice in how we want to use our minds can have such far reaching consequences. From the very narrow perspective of a life based on all the descriptive labels we can never actually make sense of experience and certainly never know exactly how we can be of most benefit in the world. From the vantage of wide-open awareness we immediately recognise the true nature of human experience and instinctively know exactly how we can contribute our innate strengths, gifts and talent for the benefit of all.

Our innate resource of clarity is available to us in every moment. The clear seeing that is at the base of all perceptions is always wide-open, alert and naturally responsive. From the balanced view of awareness we are able to make spontaneous decisions that are of immediate benefit to all. This can only come about when we see through the limitations of a world based solely on the descriptive labels we apply.

Everything offered by Great Freedom has only one purpose and that is to support each of us in the instinctive recognition of ease in each and every moment. With the various kinds of support offered this recognition becomes easy and we find that what was once a struggle is now a fluid flow of spontaneous clarity and benefit.

Precious gems

Life is revealed to be one precious gem after another when we choose to rely on awareness. Each moment, each perception is an incredible opportunity to recognise the natural clarity of awareness that illuminates all experience with its glow of spontaneous benefit.

Monday, 25 January 2010


By relying on the clarity of awareness we find that we have so much to be grateful for. Rather than being full of judgement, blame and criticism, life becomes full of wonder and appreciation. This is quite a dramatic change in the way we relate to ourselves and others. The whole game of continually judging ourselves as being inadequate or some how fundamentally flawed is seen through in every short moment of awareness.

Nothing to avoid

When we see that whatever occurs is a bright appearance of awareness then we see that we really have nothing to avoid. We can finally relax and know that we have nothing to defend, nothing to prove and can actually just enjoy ourselves exactly as we are. This is true freedom.

Saturday, 23 January 2010


All perceptions are a seamless flow, continually changing and completely unpredictable. When we recognise awareness as being the source of every experience then we discover something that is completely reliable. We discover that which is always constant. By the power of short moments of awareness we find that awareness is naturally present amidst the flow of perceptions. It never goes anywhere but is stable and alert at all times.

Just as it is

It is only when we stop only emphasising all descriptions and leave everything just as it is, that we see clearly that the basic state is primary in all experience. Whilst we are completely wrapped up in all the labels we do not have the perspective to actually recognise the fundamental nature of all phenomena. This is immediate relief as we now have no need to carry on the futile task of constantly rearranging all our experience to try and make sense of what is going on.

Getting real

When we commit to becoming familiar with awareness we are committing to seeing everything exactly as it is. We see through all the myriad of descriptive frameworks that we have built up to try and make sense of our experience. We see right to the essence of every moment, crystal clear awareness. This is the only way we can "get real" with ourselves and stop pretending or contriving anything.

Tuesday, 19 January 2010


We can really enjoy whatever we enjoy doing when we are not blinkered by the belief in the independent nature of points of view. By relying on the openness of awareness we approach everything with an easy carefree manner.

The wide-open expanse of natural perfection is creative and dynamic. The infinite display of beneficial activity is obvious in the instinctive recognition of clarity.

Sunday, 17 January 2010


To become confident that the essence of every perception is the naturally present alertness of awareness is crucial. It is of vital importance that we recognise that we have the capacity to solve all problems from the vantage of awareness. First we see this on a personal level with the resolution of any self-imposed limitations. When these frames of reference are outshone by the brilliance of awareness then we begin to see beyond the conventional limitations that have been adopted in every sphere of our lives.

Friday, 15 January 2010


From the narrow cage of descriptions we are able to approach life with complete openness once we instinctively recognise what is at the root of every label. The filter of all of our descriptive frameworks is effortlessly seen through by the power of short moments of awareness, repeated many times. Every time we take a short moment we recognise the openness of perception that is always already the case. By recognising this again and again we grow confident that this openness is never affected or changed by any description or experience.

Back to basics

Just by committing to simply recognising for short moments that whatever appears is inseparable from the basic state we become able to finally make sense of our experience of life. Without acknowledging what is most fundamental this is just not possible.

Clear seeing

In the instinctive recognition of awareness as the source and essence of every phenomena we tap in to a vast natural resource. The natural intelligence and implicate order at the base of everything is immediately accessible every time we stop the obsessive focus on descriptions and simply acknowledge the wide-open nature of all experience. Without anything needing to be done, the clarity which illuminates every perception allows spontaneous creativity to shine forth in every moment. This out flow of beneficial activity occurs naturally when we no longer believe in the fiction of the independent nature of points of view. From the balanced view of awareness true innovation and the capacity to solve problems are the default setting. We can actually see the bigger picture.

Natural Perfection

In a short moment of just letting everything be, just as it is, we tap in to the ground of evenness and equalness that is the essence of every perception. This ground of being is always pristine and clear, never affected by any of the appearances, like a mirror is never affected by any of its reflections. When we relax and recognise the source of every phenomena then we see that natural perfection is the native condition of sky-like awareness. By being obsessively focused only on the endless stream of perceptions we have simply ignored what is most fundamental, this flawless ground of wide-open ease.

Nothing required

Nothing is required for us to be able to recognise awareness as the source of any perception. Nothing needs to change for us to see in our own experience that awareness is always wide-open and clear, like the sky. Our lives are already perfect for this recognition to occur, hooray!

Sunday, 10 January 2010


It is such a relief to see right through all the complicated ways of understanding ourselves. To understand that the essence of every moment is pure and simple gives us the ability to see everything clearly, exactly as it is. The clarity of awareness is the ultimate category that subsumes all other ways of categorising or describing experience. Without this most basic of knowledge there is no way to make sense of the myriad of descriptive frameworks whose analysis only leads to more description. Once we recognise that the primary faculty is awareness then we can effortlessly make sense of any phenomena, we decisively know the fundamental nature of any perception and life becomes easy.

Saturday, 9 January 2010


To recognise that the clarity of awareness effortlessly permeates every perception is an instinctive recognition. It is instinctive because it does not require intellectual speculation to be recognised. Awareness is the space of all thoughts and experience but is not affected by any of them. Trying to think ourselves in to a recognition of awareness can be frustrating as we are trying to form a concept about that which contains all concepts, the way that space effortlessly contains all objects within it.

Spacious and relaxed

As we recognise awareness as the root of every perception we begin to see that all the phenomena are appearing in a spontaneous relaxed way. All the ideas, all the emotions, all the sensations and other experiences are seen to no longer be something we constantly have to worry about. Instead we recognise the spacious ease that is the essence of every moment, no matter how we choose to describe what is going on. From this relaxed space of ease we can approach life with openness and uncontrived warmth.

Wednesday, 6 January 2010


Finally, when we instinctively recognise the wide-open spaciousness of our fundamental nature, we see that there is no need to contrive anything any more. When we recognise that all appearances are inseparable from the clarity of awareness then we know exactly what is going on in every moment. We come to the definitive conclusion about the nature of reality for ourselves.

With this understanding we see through the need to contrive our behaviour in any way. More and more we see that life is permeated by clarity and wisdom. We are naturally relaxed and approach life with true openness and warmth. What a joy!

Tuesday, 5 January 2010


Once we recognise that the spacious ease of awareness is always accessible then we discover something quite incredible about ourselves. We see that we have always been wide-open and have never actually been stuck or caught up anywhere. All the descriptions and labels that we used to try and make sense of our experience are seen for exactly what they are, more spacious appearances spontaneously appearing in, of, as and through the clarity of awareness.

Self affirming

Once we experience for ourselves the complete well-being that is accessible in every moment we naturally choose clarity more and more. Clarity is self-affirming. It becomes obvious that to not rely on clarity is to live from a very small space with a very narrow perspective. From clarity we experience life with openness and ease and see how much we are capable of contributing.

Natural Perfection

We have an incredible opportunity to recognise innate natural perfection in every moment. It is impossible to make this recognition whilst we are still completely wrapped up in all our descriptions of what is going on. By simply leaving everything just as it is we instinctively see that there is a ground of complete stability that underlies every label, concept or description. We effortlessly recognise our natural state precisely because it is our natural state and we do this short moment by short moment.

Saturday, 2 January 2010


By allowing short moments of awareness we touch in with the perfect intelligence that is the source of all phenomena. The more we rely on short moments and the other Four Comforts the easier it becomes to rely on our own innate wisdom. Wisdom is not a mysterious quality but is the simple knowing of exactly what to say and what to do in every moment in every day life.

New Years Resolution

Why not try enjoying short moments of awareness whenever you remember and make the most important resolution you will ever make.
