What does it mean to “seek”

•    The body mind looks for (seeks) stimulation to feel alive, have a purpose outside of itself.

•    To release the palpable tension that permeates the body mind due to feeling separate from What lives us.

•    To try to feel better separate from and not dependent upon Spirit for your well-being. Wanting to feel better based on your experience here, not in terms of Feeling beyond the sense of “feeling” separate.

What are the qualities of seeking?

•     Are momentary pleasures, temporary remedies and any resulting “good mood” fades away.

•    Are giving answers, adding on to other’s ideas to feel better about who you are vs. being you.

•    Defending your “pleasures and remedies” as if they are an appropriate replacement for Feeling the peace, stillness and Love that is the Divine which – paradoxically – is YOU.

•    Defending your moods and ways of relating rather than being open, non-judgmental and exploring what brings Happiness into your life and expression.

What is “non-seeking”

•     Being who you are: not trying to do anything except being yourself without strain, effort or jumping out of the present moment you are in. Learning how to yield to effortlessness, peace, and innocence.

•     The only way this becomes permanent is through Feeling beyond all the forms and moods, “good or bad,” that distract from learning to Feel the Living Truth.

•     Lasting “aliveness” only occurs with the Divine.

•     When you are being who you are, your Happiness is independent of phenomena, of things that change.

Our body minds have a problem:

They are self-referring, constantly seeking something to try to get rid of the discomfort of feeling separate. This is only corrected when you feel what you are: the arising Living Force of the Universe.

Why are we so resistant?

What we are truly afraid of is giving up our hold on what gives us temporary relief and satisfaction, fearing there is nothing else. So we – paradoxically – fight when permanent Happiness/Truth is shared. Life and expression do not end when you stop seeking and open to what lives everything. What ends is lovelessness, the feeling of being separate. What remains is Love. And Love just Loves, learning to express Happiness everywhere.

May your ‘fight’ to stay unhappy and separate be as short as is humanly possible!!!
