Metta's Reflections

Remember This: There is an end to our restless searching. It is inherent within the Present Moment. The process of searching for the truth eventually prevents us from seeing and recognizing it. You are That which you are seeking. The Open Secret: Reality, exactly as it manifests within our ordinary Awareness within the present moment, is none other than THAT which we have been seeking. Enlightenment is the irrefutable Recognition of the finite nature of all things, and the inherent completeness of Reality manifesting within the Infinite Present. Bliss is the recognition of the absolute and complete perfection of the universe, as it is, in the present moment. Awakening is a recognition that nothing is missing. The Infinite manifests in and through the finite. Reality is the Infinite showing up here and now through finite form. Reality defies expression -- except through Life itself. The recognition of the fundamental, essential nature of Reality is the source of our greatest satisfaction and deepest fulfillment. Purpose and meaning are inherent within, not separate from, the fundamental and essential nature of Reality. The essence of Reality is not separate from who and what we are at a fundamental and essential level. You are aware that you are Aware. This reflective quality of human consciousness is the key to understanding your own essential and fundamental nature. Suffering results from a mistaken sense of identity. Our beliefs are simply interpretations of Reality. When the student is ready, the teacher disappears -- and only Reality remains. Notice the distinction between the content of consciousness and the background of Natural Awareness. Pay attention. Trust Life. That will be enough. Attention is simply the focusing of individual consciousness. Intention is the focusing of desire. Desire is energy of Life moving within the universe. Explore the 3 "Given Conditions" within your own immediate experience: (1) I am... (2) Aware... (3) Now.... This is all we know. The present moment is our most direct and immediate experience of the Infinite. The Infinite is showing up in and through you within the present moment. The power of choice shapes the way the Infinite shows up in and through each of us. The end of searching gives way to infinite gratitude, discovery and exploration.
