Beyond Failure


There is no way that "you" are not THIS, here and now.

It is impossible for you to be anything else. Whatever thought tells you you are, is not what you are. You are simply the ALL, the Oneness, Being, Isness...

There is no possibility of anything else, there simply IS nothing else. Let every concept of WHAT IS fall away in the immediacy of this here-now....what is present?
Don't try to define it, just notice the allowing, the open receiving-loving-emptiness of what you are. The words are not accurate or important, experience-ing IS, and that is all.

No option to fail. Being cannot be failed! What you ARE always IS and all that is seen is only THAT, nothing else, nothing in addition to, or less than.

Just THIS. Call it Liberation, Enlightenment, Awareness, whatever you want - what you call it doesn't change the unchanging reality.

You are done, you are already "cooked." No effort is needed to BE. YOU are complete wholeness, love, compassion, silence, peace....and SO beyond what those words might mean to a "mind."

Celebrate, you are LIFE loving-to-be! And any story that arises arguing with that is another lovely appearance in this Life that you are...

As Rumi wrote: "Be melting snow....Wash yourself of yourself." Deep in those words lies the ecstasy of Being....perhaps.

I want to celebrate it. I want to look and feel the shape of it, the quality of it - this allness that I AM. I am greedy for all this life; It is not enough to look and see that I am it, this; I want to know it, feel it.When you write there is in the words the clear sense of the warmth of this knowledge, the conviction that it is all One for you. Maybe the words arise from the love. But between the writing maybe there is doubt for you too. Your mind knows it must all be as you say, but your heart is hungry once again - maybe not! Is there something that happens within the heart that creates a permanent knowledge of this obvious truth, or am I taking us back into this false idea of the need for searched for enlightenment again?

lovely warmth always in the way you express. Thank you for the love.

Thank you Julian, for the very kind words. I feel the warmth in your words, and I'm glad that what is written here resonates with you.

To your question: Is there a knowing without doubt? Yes, there is. And it's always the case, always here. In the now of now, there is only This and perhaps a thought-story might appear, something labeled as "doubt," but does it actually change anything? Does it represent truth? No, it is simply seen as what it is..

Come back to This, here. It's where you never left. It cannot be left because it's YOU. YOU notice the "doubt." It cannot alter what is, it is simply one way the Isness appears...like a flower..

Much love,
Mary

Julian said...

It seems that a lot of the inconsequential thoughts that come up are very hard on the story, and very hard, as addressed in the previous blog entry, on thoughts.

When thoughts and story are no longer the be-all and end-all, they can be enjoyed, and appreciated, by no one. They are play, they give structure to "life loving to be." They are a part of it all too. There is nothing, that is not oneness.

Thanks for a great post Mary!

Love, Suzanne

Hi Mary,

"People" ask...and my character is one of those who find it difficult to say no!
