When your once well revered yoga mat used for 17+ years in a dedicated & masterful EFFORT to relax & quiet the mind suddenly reincarnates into a cushiony object for your knees while planting a flower garden, its probable that YOU ARE AWAKE !
~ Other observations indicating wide awake-ness/awareness :
- You catch a friend blatantly lying to you and you smile in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
- Your partner comes home from work to find two hideous, one hundred pound columns installed by the gas company in the newly paved driveway, in full reaction mode he removes the beams, and you simply watch quietly in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
- Money in your checking account is dwindling; your savings account is gone; you have been technically unemployed since November 2011 except for the occasional odd job, yet there is NO FEAR present inside you, NO FEAR as to how you will continue paying your bills because you are in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
- You travel 1300 miles back to your parents home, to stay for a week and completely enjoy yourself with out distress or negative reaction of any kind because you are in full acceptance that it is all just happening.
So far these are the most immediate observations and Kate is still nowhere to be found. All the reacting has ceased. All the fears and anxieties have dissolved. All the judgment, blame, resentment, and opinions have simply disappeared. No more resistance, no more needing or desiring to control actions or outcomes. And most notably, as living a liberated life happens, the view is crisper, cleaner, warmer, and filled with endless space.
Occasionally I look in the mirror checking to see: “Am I still here? Did I some how endure a head injury and just forgot it happened? Did the alien ship finally arrive and I am now just a host for some extraterrestrial? ”
Every moment I attempt to test and look for loopholes. Every moment I pull back the curtain to check for the wizard, and so far the only discovery made is this…
THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE A LIBERATED LIFE.
ITS ALL JUST HAPPENING! 🙂
