After the peaceful silence of the night, there is nothing waiting for something. Yet a mystery unfolds that is unprecedented. It wakes up in a body, not knowing where it is located and who or what it is. When the eyes open, there is the seeing, but the first thought that emerges makes the bedroom quickly recognizable. Thoughts, along with the sensory perceptions in the body, are appropriated by the current ‘I-
THE ONE LIFE
Because of that one thought, that wafer-

EMPTINESS AND LACK
Not aware of our true Nature, which is naturally whole, free and complete, the time passes by year and day and we experience a lack, an emptiness. As long as the Consciousness is entangled with the thinking mind we are only aware of the energy directed outwardly – towards the objects. She seemingly goes away from herself and imagines all kinds of things to fill that emptiness, that feeling of incompleteness. But in that imaginary, seperate fragment, sooner or later that feeling of emptiness and lack will resurface again. As soon as a desire comes to an end temporarily because it is obtained, happiness comes to the surface. This happiness has nothing to do with the object obtained, the substance or a relationship, but everything with being satisfied -
“In that imaginary, seperate fragment, the feeling of lack will resurface again”
As you see yourself, you also see an ‘other’ and the world. As long as we don’t see through the illusion of what we think we are, and as long as we continue to believe in the delusion of a ‘private driver’, the longing for happiness will continue. Simultaneously with the fear of losing what we have already obtained. How can an illusion -
Desire always goes out to something -
Yet even an thought that is observed can reveal its origin, its Source, when we discover where it comes from and where it dissolves in again. The thought itself is the proof that you are conscious, because a thought is not self-
“You as Consciousness not only precede creation, but you are also the Nature of all things, the creation itself. All you have to do is turn around, be open to it.”
So the self-
Every thought, experience or event has left its imprint on our body down to the cellular level. Even though we mentally know that there is no one and that we are not the body, that knowledge does not help -
LOOKING AS SUCH -
For a complete realization, liberation of the Consciousness is not only necessary on a mental level, but certainly also on a physical, sensory, emotional and energetic level. That is not difficult, because every moment is an invitation to recognize yourself as that open, clear, conscious Being. It requires a different approach, a different way of looking: looking as such – without remembrance. Whether you look at an object, or consciously stay with the energy of an an emotion-
THE DYNAMIC SIDE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Only by descending into the core of the experience, the energy that is responsible for the charge can free itself forever. Because it is that charge, that retained energy, that makes us feel unfree and that we are bothered by all kinds of things, because the energy is looking for a way out -
MARRIAGE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH
Let the Light of your Consciousness shine on the feeling – the energy pole – in your body. Then the knowing, masculine principle – that is the static side of Consciousness – meets the intuitive feminine, the dynamic principle. The polarity dissapears and the light keeps burning when the blocked charges are dissolved and the plus and minus poles have found each other. They have never really been seperated. The false, dualistic beliefs and feelings have dimmed the clarity of that Conscious Being seemingly. But the only certainty there is, is already in you. She had always been Present unconcealed. It is the instinctive knowledge that you exist, your most intimate experience. No experience of something, but the experiencing of your own conscious Being and there is nothing personal about it. Because even the chair which you sit on is your own experience of that Presence and a temporary vibration in that eternally self-
So pure and absolutely untouched,
it was never born;
it knows no death.
No beginning, no end.
Was always here already.
So open, so exposed.
