Why is it that we experience ourselves as incomplete?
Why is it that we feel as if something is missing?
It’s not because there is actually something inherently lacking or unavailable that we would need to go get or fix in order to feel complete. Rather, we feel this way because we are internally misaligned.
We are internally misaligned when our bodies are ‘here’ and our minds are ‘there’ (wherever ‘there’ is). We are internally misaligned when we are in other’s people’s business wanting from them the things that they do not naturally offer. We are internally misaligned when we are in the ‘want’ or ‘need’ mind that labels everything as something that should be either “fabricated”, "fixed", or “dealt with”.
When we realize, with every cell of our body, that we are already complete… When we realize that what has been misaligned is not lost… When we realize that ABSOLUTELY nothing is inherently missing… We are then able to sit back, breathe, and relax in a way in which we gently, compassionately, and kindly embody and become the freshness, the crispness, the aliveness, and the wholeness of this exact simple moment.
But how do we realize, with every cell of our body, that we are already complete? How do we experience this at such profound level that we then naturally and effortlessly merge with ourselves? In my experience, we do not realize this from more reading, exploring, conceptualizing or attempting to fix others or ourselves. Everything has already been said a million times! Rather, we actually realize this through a sustained, deep, committed, still, and profound daily practice in inquiry. A practice where we go deep, deep inside our Heart and ask: Who am I without the fabricated story of me? And then, just wait and see ✨✨✨
