Entering The Body To Go Beyond It

Ask yourself, “Am I aware not only of what is happening at this moment, but also of the Now itself as the living timeless inner space in which everything happens?”

Although this question seems to have nothing to do with the inner body, you may be surprised that by becoming aware of the space of Now, you suddenly feel more alive inside.

You are feeling the aliveness of the inner body — the aliveness that is an intrinsic part of the joy of Being.

We have to enter the body to go beyond it and find out that we are not that.

QUOTES FROM STILLNESS SPEAKS by Eckhart Tolle …

QUOTES FROM STILLNESS SPEAKS by Eckhart Tolle

“When you are suffering, when you are unhappy, stay totally with what is Now. Unhappiness or problems cannot survive in the Now.”

“The mind is incessantly looking not only for food for thought; it is looking for food for its identity, its sense of self. This is how the ego comes into existence and continuously re-creates itself.”

“How wonderful to go beyond wanting and fearing in your relationships. Love does not want or fear anything.”

“Whatever you accept completely will take you to peace, including the acceptance that you cannot accept, that you are in resistance.”

“Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal. […] If you can learn to accept and even welcome the endings in your life, you may find that the feeling of emptiness that initially felt uncomfortable turns into a sense of inner spaciousness that is deeply peaceful.”

“I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life. I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness. I am the Now. I Am.”

The Presence That I Am Thoughts and words…

The Presence That I Am

Thoughts and words belong to the world of form; they cannot express the formless. So when you say, “I can feel my inner body” that is a misperception created by thought.

What is really happening is that the consciousness that appears as the body — the consciousness that I Am — is becoming conscious of itself.

When I no longer confuse who I am with a temporary form of me, then the dimension of the limitless and the eternal – God — can express itself through “me” and guide “me.” It also frees me from dependency on form.

However, a purely intellectual recognition or belief that “I am not this form” does not help. The all-important question is: At this moment, can I sense the presence of inner space, which really means, can I sense my own Presence, or rather, the Presence that I Am?

Be Aware Of Your Breathing

Be aware of your breathing. Notice the sensation of the breath. Feel the air moving in and out of your body. Notice how the chest and abdomen expand and contract slightly with the in- and outbreath.

One conscious breath is enough to make some space where before there was the uninterrupted succession of one thought after another.

One conscious breath (two or three would be even better), taken many times a day, is an excellent way of bringing space into your life.

Even if you meditated on your breathing for two hours or more, which some people do, one breath is all you ever need to be aware of, indeed ever can be aware of. The rest is memory or anticipation, which is to say, thought.

I Am Is The Substratum

Although you cannot know Consciousness, you can become conscious of it as yourself.

You can sense it directly in any situation, no matter where you are.

You can sense it here and now as your very Presence, the inner space in which the words on this screen are perceived and become thoughts.

It is the underlying I Am. The words you are reading and thinking are the foreground, and the I Am is the substratum, the underlying background to every experience, thought, feeling.

JUXTAPOSITION – well fancy that!

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. – Thich Nhat Hanh

Another way of describing the pain-body is this: the addiction to unhappiness. – Eckhart Tolle

Love is a state of Being Your love…

Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form.

In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form.

You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature.

You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.

What is God? The eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life.

What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it.

Therefore, all love is the love of God.
