The facts are in. Life is Great. And infinite. This means that You are Infinite, now, not just later when you “evolve” and get “enlightened”.
“Enlightenment” and making the “journey to truth” and walking the “path to God” all sound so dramatic and important and necessary.
This is a false notion. Enlightenment isn’t the end result of some process, it’s your Condition, right now, you just don’t Recognize it. You think that ordinary human consciousness isn’t the Same Ocean as Infinite Consciousness, or God. But it is the same, precisely the same. The ocean has both depth and surface, but it’s still One Ocean, not two.
Here is solid proof: You are aware of these words that I am writing and that you are reading. You are aware of the room you are in, and that you are alive. Your awareness of yourself is your most fundamental experience. No one could tell you any different. You know that you exist. Whatever else may be true or not true, THIS is true.
It’s completely self- evident, no one had to tell you that you are alive and aware, you didn’t need to read it in a book.
Here is my point: All you really know for sure is that you exist. Whatever the big picture is in life and the universe and time and space, is debatable and depends on your assumptions.
But, You are not an assumption! The fact that your Awareness Exists is not an assumption! You are not the end result of some process that began in the past. You are the Awareness of the process. This means that you are not a thing, an object, a mind, a body or an idea. It is impossible to overstate the importance of facing this.
This means that you are Consciousness and I don’t mean a little tiny part of Consciousness. You are Infinite Consciousness, aware of yourself as a human being. You are what infinite Consciousness looks like when it Imagines Itself to be you.
You couldn’t be more You than you. You could not stand up a take a step towards yourself. You cannot walk a path toward God because you are God, already. You can’t wake up from a dream if you are not asleep. You are the Dreamer and the Dream, literally, not figuratively.
Infinite Consciousness goes to sleep and Dreams us. It overlooks its’ own Infinity and embraces form and limitation as an expression of Its’ Infinite Love.
This is literally true, is not merely my opinion or belief. You can see this for yourself, but there is a cost.
The cost is the refusal to make false assumptions and to be ruthlessly honest about your actual experience.
For example: When you were a child, you were aware of yourself as a child. Now, you’re an adult and are aware of yourself as an adult.
Your body and mind changed, but did the Awareness change? Isn’t the Awareness EXACTLY the same?
Yes, it is, and this is proof that You are Awareness because Awareness doesn’t change. Everything else changes except the Awareness of the change. The fact that your Awareness didn’t change is Smoking Gun evidence that You are Consciousness, not a mind in a body that is conscious. The body and mind are not conscious, only Consciousness is Conscious.
Ramana Maharshi said that Reality is like a big Lighthouse, many windows but only One Light. The windows aren’t sparks of the Light, nor do they possess Light themselves, they Conduct it and Refract it. We humans are like exquisite Stained Glass Windows in the Living Temple of Reality.
Here is another example: No matter where you are, it’s always Here. No matter what time it is, it’s always Now. Everywhere you go, there you are.
This is absolute proof that you are timeless, spaceless, eternal, universal Infinite Consciousness. Now. Not just when you “evolve” and become “enlightened”.
Recognition of your present Condition as Awareness IS enlightenment, and it is THE most basic Condition of every single individual alive today, across the entire universe.
The reason we suffer is because we have a mistaken identity. We think that our Actual Nature and Identity as Infinite Consciousness is somehow restricted to the body and mind and that we will end when the body dies, but this is not true, Consciousness is not born and does not die.
The water in the cup takes the form of the cup, but’s still water, not a cup.
Deep contemplation and honesty about the truth of your Actual Nature is profoundly authentic and effective spiritual practice because it is rooted in the truth of your actual experience as Awareness.
In this way, you will realize your wholeness, your indivisibility, your staggering unity with literally everything, as a matter of fact, not belief.
There are beliefs about Truth, but Truth Itself is not a belief. Truth is Truth. Beliefs are beliefs.
The Truth is always the Truth, whether it is recognized or not. It can be buried, ignored, forgotten, lied about and ridiculed, but it is still the Truth.
Understanding this evaporates the fear of death and replaces it with Confidence in Existence.
That Which is eternal circulates between the cycles of birth and death.
You are That.
Your human heart and the Heart of the Cosmos are synchronized.
The sino-atrial node, the so-called pacemaker on the right side of your heart, is an antennae.
An inconceivably intense Electromagnetic Current radiates from the Living Heart of Existence through the stars into our hearts.
In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus is asked, “Who is your Father?”
He said, “MY Father is a Movement and a Rest”
