Hitting the rocks of heavy emotions or vibrations

It is natural, of course, that when we seek alignment with our Source, that sometimes we hit the ‘rocks’. The rocks are the old sense of personal identity which surface from time to time. These ‘rocks’ actually show us that we are on the correct path, otherwise we wouldn’t be aware of them. However, vibrationally it is not a good place to stay in because it can really lead to us getting stuck.

But firstly, we need to spend a short time releasing these feelings , because it is necessary to let go of resistance. If you need to really cry or scream, just do it, but DO NOT ADD THOUGHT TO IT.
AFTER, you have allowed yourself to let go of the emotions, then you can write down thoughts that you genuinely believe, so that you can take yourself across the bridge to much more positive feelings, or ‘vibrations’. For example:
1.) Although I feel sore, and ‘heavy’ , I know that this too will pass, because I have seen it pass many, many times before.
2.)Who is it that is really in pain anyway? So, ‘who’ will the pain pass FOR?
3.) I know that there is no person who is in pain because I AM pure Being, and my actual Being is incapable of feeling pain. So any pain that is being experienced are just remainders and reminders of past conditioning – of believing I am a separate identity. I dont need to keep ‘meeting up with’ these old thoughts, because they know longer resonate with who I now know myself to be. If I see one of those old thoughts or beliefs appearing, I can immediately run in completely the other direction. And, I know that it is only when I think I am separate, that I feel pain. If I feel lonely, sad or discouraged, it is just a false belief of being separate from the whole.
4.) I choose to feel better and I can do this right now by closing my eyes and spending 15 minutes just simply sensing the ‘I’ of my Being.

‘You’ are free right NOW and when you are back in Alignement with what IS, such a peace comes flooding back.

Also, I saw a brilliant little video today, which is particularly useful if you are giving yourself a hard time about faults you think you have, or if you are doing far too much ‘weeding of your garden’ – weeding your own ‘garden’ for ‘stuff’. The minute you watch this, I think you will feel a real relaxing and releasing. I hope you enjoy it:

See It NOW : Seeking v. LOOKING

If you think of yourself as a ‘seeker’, you will be seeking all your life, because a ‘seeker’ seeks for something.
Instead, ‘ know thyself’ as a ‘looker’ – not looking for something, but looking AT, that which has never been lost.

From this perspective everything takes a 360 degree turn-around -instantly!
You are no longer ‘seeking for’, which subjects you to a life of looking outside yourself for Home’, instead you are looking directly AT ‘home’.

THE SEEKER: continually looks for the next teacher, the next book, video, audio, Satsang, practice, or ‘Nonduality Club’ where just the right phrase or sentence could possibly be heard that changes everything and suddenly brings about Liberation.
There is nothing wrong with this of course, and it cannot be helped anyway, BUT, so often this becomes an addiction to seeking, an obsession, as it also provides a great social life, or in the case of a ‘Silent Retreat’, a break from the ‘real world’. It may be fun, relaxing, or ‘take you out of yourself’ for a while but if allowed to go on too long, it actually becomes just another ‘comfort-zone’ keeping you trapped in the world of ‘pointers’ and never actually arriving.

THE LOOKER: looks at what they are already. Simple as that. They have made a decision to end all these years of looking for just the right ‘pointer’ from just the right teacher, and they have given up the search in favour of looking inwards, not outwards. Then they discover there was never anything outside anyway. It’s all been a hoax.

What is meant by ‘looking at?’ Looking at what?
It simply means looking directly at the pure awareness that you are, without the ‘you’ that you think you are. In other words, present sounds, sights, smells, tastes and feelings, both physical and emotional, none of which has ever come via matter – such as ears, eyes, body etc. It is only awareness, your pure aliveness that supplies your consciousness with all this information. It was never ‘you’ the person. And here is a great quote from Mary Baker Eddy : ‘ I – dentity is not an ‘entity’.

So now you are a ‘looker’ – looking AT. ‘ Regard’ is the French word for ‘ to look’ . You can only ‘ Regard’ or LOOK AT what is there already. But if you think it’s not there, if you feel you’ve lost something, then you are back into ‘seeking’ – seeking to find it again.
So take up this suggestion: Stop seeking for and start looking AT . Believe me when I tell you that this changes everything, as I said earlier, a complete 360 degree turn-around.

Whenever you notice thoughts roaring, allow them to roar but neutralise yourself from their magnetic pull – STOP being interested and simply notice their underlying vibrational current. Notice sounds, sights, bodily sensations, including those thought-currents, and then you are staring right AT pure awareness. If you are washing-up, stare at the hands in the sink. If you are tying on the computer, watch that. Better still, sit for a minute, or as long as you are able and notice everything. That which notices, is ‘you’ AS pure awareness, aliveness.

Aliveness is what you are, or else how is it possible for you to walk around without WIRES??? It is LIFE that is walking itself. LIFE that is hearing, feeling and seeing ITSELF.
So LOOK AT IT! Not outside of it. You will never see anything ‘ outside’ because that would mean it would have to be outside of your awareness, which is impossible because if you are not aware of it, then it cannot exist.

All this might sound like a very subtle change, but the emphasis on looking at rather than seeking for is Paramount and the difference between seeing and not seeing.
