Everything about your life is already perfect for the instinctive recognition of awareness, since everything is nothing but a self appearance of awareness. This makes it very easy. We don't need to look for certain kinds of experiences to find awareness but can just relax as "what's looking".

It is only in the direct encounter with all of our experience, left exactly as it is, that we have the opportunity to recognise what is the essence of every perception, sky-like awareness. Nothing to avoid, everything instinctively recognised as the seamless free-flowing expanse of benefit, short moment by short moment, hooray!

I have found that when I decided to rely on the support offered by Great Freedom the struggle to be at ease with who I am gently relaxed. All I found was a group of people who were completely dedicated to supporting me and everyone else in the instinctive recognition of clarity. There were no bells and whistles, no funny costumes or strange ways of speaking, just clarity reflected more and more brightly, day by day.

The basic state of experience is always wide-open like the sky, flawless and naturally present. Once this is recognised the relief from trying to uphold all our ideas about ourselves and everything else is immediate. We recognise that all appearances are simply appearances of this basic state and that nothing whatsoever has a nature separate or apart from this ground of being. Finally we have the perspective on all of our experience that we were always looking for.

From the vantage of sky-like awareness there is no need to desperately cling on to conventional ways of describing experience. It is such a relief not to need to try and uphold all our complicated ideas of who we are and what we need to do to find a sense of completion. Instead we can enjoy the free-flowing display of phenomena in all its beneficial wonder.

The simple understanding that all perceptions only arise in, of, as and through the clarity of awareness provides the essential perspective on all our experience. With this simple recognition we can begin to relax the habit of continually trying to make sense out of everything that appears by picking it apart and trying to pin it down. Instead we can just enjoy the free flowing display of phenomena in all its beneficial wonder.

There never has been anything that has been separate from the basic state of our experience. Every thought, emotion, sensation, doubt, fear or question is effortlessly held in the warm embrace of innate clarity, with nothing left out. To take a short moment to simply acknowledge the clarity that is the essence of every perception is the greatest of all gifts, for ourselves and every one we care about. When we do this we see through the game of continually looking for something to be somehow different from how it is and can simply enjoy the relaxed openness that is at the root of every moment.

Without recognising the basic knowledge that no phenomena has an independent, self-generated identity, then there is no way we can make sense of our experience. Until we understand this we will be continuously looking for one more piece of information, one more fact or feel that we need to read just one more book and then we will finally understand what is going on. To understand this fundamental knowledge intellectually is great but we will never have access to the vast expanse of our own innate intelligence unless we also recognise this instinctively. To recognise this instinctively we simply take short moments of the recognition of the clarity of awareness, repeated many times until this recognition is continuous.

We always have a simple choice. We can live life from the very narrow perspective of the jumble of all our descriptive frameworks or we can rely on the perfect intelligence of sky-like awareness. When we rely on the clarity of awareness we are immediately smarter and live life from the powerful perspective of natural confidence. No longer bogged down in a fictitious world of opinions and ideas we can actually fulfil our incredible potential as human beings. We have so much creativity, so much compassion, so much to offer and the only way this can be realised is by making the choice to rely on our innate clarity again and again.
Monday, 12 April 2010
When we stop believing in the independent nature of phenomena then we recognise that the fundamental nature of all experience is wide-open and limitless. We cannot find any boundary to our clarity, no edges or limits. Clarity effortlessly subsumes all conventional descriptive frameworks in the brilliance of its natural luminosity. What we can create, contribute and give are finally realised by simply allowing beneficial clarity to inform our speech and actions. It is not complicated, it is clear, relaxed and naturally present in every perception.

The intelligence singularity is obvious in each moment as each intelligent process. Each intelligent process is a perfect opportunity to recognise the basic intelligence that includes and subsumes all other modes of expression. Spontaneously self-replicating itself in an unpredictable, ceaseless display of harmonious creative activity the intelligence singularity is dynamic, alert and beneficially responsive.

The beauty of each moment is revealed by relaxing and simply acknowledging the bright clarity that illuminates all experience. Life recognised as a seamless flow of wonder and creativity, shining with luminescent clarity. Wide-open and pristine, nakedly seeing from within each perception.
Friday, 9 April 2010
It is the brilliance of innate clarity that illuminates all experience, regardless of how we describe what is going on. When we allow the flow of perceptions to be just as it is then this luminous clarity is obvious. When we do this we discover an incredible natural resources within ourselves, the ability to relate with openness and incredible sensitivity in all situations and with all kinds of people.

Each moment of each day we have a very simple choice. We can lose ourselves in a labyrinth of descriptive frameworks and concepts or we can recognise spacious awareness that is always relaxed and naturally present. When we rely on the clarity of awareness immediately our focus shifts from the obsessive focus on all our thoughts, emotions, sensations and other experiences and we relax. When we are relaxed we are more capable. More capable of relating with ease with other people. More capable of making decisions that bring us and everyone else benefit. More capable of living a happy, productive life where we really see what we are capable of contributing to the world.

Clarity is only to be found in the present perception. It is not some future destination that we are trying to get to. So, no matter how you describe what is going on right now, clarity is shining brightly from within whatever thought, emotion, sensation you are experiencing. This makes it very simple and every time we relax for a short moment this is instinctively recognised.

Everyday life becomes full of delight and wonder when we simply relax and notice the wide-open clarity at the base of all experience. Going to the local supermarket to buy groceries becomes completely enjoyable and no longer a drag or a chore. Normal mundane activities are revealed as the splendid display of natural perfection and when you buy your milk and bread you will quietly smile a smile of gentle knowing.
Friday, 2 April 2010
Perception is always wide-open, limitless, like a cloudless sky. It is only when we focus on one particular perception and try to describe and define it that this openness is ignored. Each time we simply relax and notice our innate clarity we allow this openness to become more and more obvious in daily life.
