THE EYE OF THE STORM
You, my friend, are the eye of the storm.
In the midst of the turbulence of the world, you have the capacity to be the center of stillness. In the midst of the maelstrom of thoughts, you have the capacity to know the awareness behind those thoughts. In the midst of ever-changing circumstances, you have the capacity to know yourself as presence. This that is at the core of all movement is the "I", the one who experiences the whole drama unfolding, the one who is unmoving because it is the source of what is.
The "I" is not the same as the "me". The "me" is who you think you are, the many layers of identities constructed to give you a platform to stand on in this world. The "me" is an illusion in the eye of God, an appearance that comes and goes. The "me" sees only through myopic eyes of the personhood and is fueled by fear of death, the end of "me". But the "I" is eternal, ever-present, unconcerned with that which comes and goes. The "I" is the true eye, the true see-er, the one who is one with all things and no things.
This, my friend, is always available to you. It is simple ... remain as presence, remain as openness, forge the capacity to remain as awareness. This is not detached or cold, it is simply the truth of what you are. And it is the only way to walk as warrior of truth and love in this worldly play. Be still within, and know yourself. Be silent within, and the know the power of source.
Everything changes in this inner revolution. It doesn't change for the sake of the personhood, it changes for the sake of the whole. This is the evolutionary next step.
