Everything is Connected

Everything is connected and comes from one formless, timeless, Source.

We can call this Eternal Presence.

In Biblical Hebrew this is expressed in the meditation Ehieh Asher Ehieh, the mantra on the conscious breath – 

אֶֽהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶֽהְיֶה

Usually translated I Am that I Am.

This I Am has nothing to do with the persona or ego, which is the identification with mind-made images, our thoughts and emotions, both personal and in the human collective. 

Ehieh Asher Ehieh takes us deeper, beyond the thinking mind.

Be still, be consciously receptive, and in the silence of no-mind, come to know Eternal Conscious Presence.

As you read this now, breathe consciously, feel the aliveness in your hands, in your feet, your arms and legs, and in your whole body, in every cell of your body. Feel the aliveness in your spinal cord connecting spirit and body into a unified whole.

You are one with the Source of all Life. 

This is not a thought or a concept, it is beyond the comprehension of the mind.

From the conscious breath and the awakening to the aliveness in the body, realise there are two movements of the universe.

The inward towards stillness deep within the heart, and the outward into form and diversity of the One.

Practice the embodiment of the inward and outward movements of the breath throughout your day, this frees you from identification with thoughts and brings you into spacious Presence.

אֶֽהְיֶה

Ehieh is the still, silent space that allows the light of consciousness to shine through. This is an awakening in which consciousness becomes aware of itself – as itself: there is no subject – object, no duality, no other to be sought after.

Know that you are given life in this moment now, that you are continually supported by the One universal consciousness – Ehieh Asher Ehieh.

Be present, here, now, with all your attention. 

This Presence will flow into all that you do and say – no more fear and anxiety, no more competitive actions or harsh words.

This is true Peace. 

Awakening

Spiritual awakening is not personal; it is freedom from all ego identity and its resultant suffering. Spiritual awakening is part of the collective awakening of humanity, the evolving consciousness of the life of the Earth, the Solar System and Stars, and the Cosmos itself. In Conscious Presence you come to Know that everything is alive, and that everything is connected. 

Dawn on the sea of Galilee

The Sun rises above the Jordanian Hills to shine upon the sea of Galilee. In mystical teachings the Sun walks upon the waters of Life, it’s non-visible Light -the essence of all Life – greets and enters the awakening heart.

The dawn light is always present on the Earth.

The Seed of Life

Healing begins as a Seed of Life deep within our inner Space.

Awakening illuminates all of the pain that we carry within us. The pain that you feel is not only personal, your pain is linked to the human collective pain and suffering which have accumulated over thousands of years.

To feel our emotions is an essential part of healing: realising wholeness. Even more important is to feel the stillness of space underlying and surrounding our emotions so that we don’t become identified with our emotional body. The mind will quickly turn powerful emotions into ego identities, unless we bring them into conscious presence: the intense aliveness that cries out from every cell in the body; and beyond that, the stillness that brings peace.

The Seed of Life becomes the Flower of Life: I Am that I Am: the continual creation of life from out of the Eternal Presence of God: When we breathe with awareness we access the universal creative pattern of life.

The Seed of Life becomes the Flower of Life:
When we breathe with awareness, opening the heart, we access the universal creative pattern of life.

Breathing from the heart and solar plexus stills the mind, and brings awareness to the aliveness of the spinal cord. Awakening to the vibrant aliveness of the spine through the conscious breath, you feel life flowing through the arms into the hands, and through the legs into the feet, and the opening of the Pineal gland at the top of the spine – behind the forehead.

Movement and Stillness in water and stone. Underlying all movement is Still Presence, unnoticed until we still the mind. The still mind is empty of thought, yet full of alert awareness.

Holding still, thought-free, space for a few seconds during quiet moments throughout your day, calms the emotions and allows all the thought forms that cling to the ego identity to begin to dissolve.

Allow your inner Being to open and blossom.

Allow yourself moments of freedom from thought throughout the day.

Be Still and move from there. Be silent and speak from there.
