AN ILLUMINATED WORLD IS POSSIBLE
The time has come to admit to our humanity, so that the mind’s illumination can filter into the belly of our earthly experience.
I’m not talking about flitting in and out of an awakened state and a human state. I’m not talking about a polarity, a dichotomy.
I’m talking about a merging of the two—a true inner marriage.
The heart becomes illuminated when we allow our allegiance to truth to support us in seeing beyond beliefs—beyond concepts or ideas or hopes or fears—to what is truly here right now.
It’s a cutting-through, a piercing of the veil of projection based on conditioning.
When that illuminated view can filter in, through humility and through tenderness, into the depths of who we are, the heart stops being a reservoir of hurt and defense and need, and starts being an open vessel for love.
Now we can start to live with illuminated mind and illuminated heart. It is the end of an inner patriarchy, the end of giving our authority over to an imagined power.
It is the end of the myth of enlightenment as an elevated superhuman God-like state.
It is the beginning of a new world within you. And the beginning of a new world within you is the beginning of a new world.
