An Invitation to True Freedom and Peace

Postby LoveBeing » Thu Apr 03, 2014 5:04 am

Whatever you see, hear, feel, think or do, you are aware of it. What is that which is aware? The true answer to this question leads to true freedom and peace...

The mind is used to answers with form objects, including thought forms, but the true answer to this question is formless and it cannot be conceptual.

Also, the mind has a tendency to move outward for answers, even to the question "who am I really". It would even turn it into an objective question although clearly "I" is the subject. The most common assumption is "I am the body which has a mind". By moving outwardly, the mind forms thoughts and beliefs about who you are by projections from others' mind and your own mind. What or who is aware of all this?

You may sense "I am not just the body or mind". Hence imagination of what "I" might be in the spiritual world arises, and this "I" then appear to be somewhere out there. Again, What or who is aware of all this?

Human's deepest yearning is true freedom and peace - free from limitations and free from feeling unsatisfied. The body is time bound. The mind builds up all kinds of stories around its believed identities. However, no thought or imagination out of the conditioned (limited) mind can bring true freedom or peace, because the stories, thoughts and imaginations are all limited and impermanent. They all come and go; or they all are born, and then die.

The good news is: you are aware of all this. Actually, you are the awareness - life itself. You can intuitively sense this. The body or mind cannot be without the awareness. The thoughts or beliefs cannot stop you from being the awareness, but they can block its realization.

Self inquiry will inevitably exhaust the conditioned mind. Anything can be perceived as an object, including thoughts, feelings, emotions or phenomenons, cannot be you as you are the one who is aware all of them. When the mind eventually stops its attempt to come up with any conceptual answers to the question "who am I or what am I", the grace for the awareness to reveal itself by direct recognition may come.

When the true answer to the question "what is that which is aware" is revealed or recognized through direct experience, it is seen that the awareness itself does not come and go. It is not born and it cannot die. The awareness is always present. It is beyond space and time. It is untouchable and unchanging. It is perfectly innocent. It is limitless and timeless...

May you find true freedom and peace!

Welcome to the forum, LoveBeing. I've read all your posts and they are uplifting and yet directive. Can you tell us a bit about your path in form? Not critical to staying here, LB - just curious. It's not terribly often someone so assertive appears...
