Knowing yourself as the Self is the ultimate intimacy. Unconditional love for yourself arises. You don’t do anything but sit in the silence, inviting peace. I usually say, “I am in God’s presence now,” and relax into the silence that is always immediately there.
It took me a long time to get to this place. I studied truth for years and years and then one day I had effortless access, sort of like an ATM machine with no limits. I have had no enlightenment experience, rather, one crisis after another over a period of many years.
Lately I have been reading many accounts of people who have awakened and I know that I am not there yet.
“Are we there yet, are we there yet?” ask the spiritual seeking children in the backseat of the enlightenment limo. Those who have arrived have a lot to say about the silence. Much of it is helpful and most is not.
The most helpful information comes from those who do not wax overly eloquent. Although I have read tons of tomes, usually they did not have the energy contained in some of the pithier statements. I guess it’s like the guy said, “If I had had more time, I could have written you a shorter letter.”
Find an energy statement that works for you and work it. Here are a few of my favorites:
Let it have you.
Let everything unfold.
I choose to love myself.
And finally, meditate on the word inevitability.
We will get there when we get there—inevitably.
