When you’re no longer needing a witness; when you are no longer wanting to be ‘OK’ . . . this is when you’re open to the surprise of being phenomenal in ways that you’ve never imagined.
There’s a known fact in metaphysics: you must release ‘wanting’ in order to embrace ‘having’.
Wanting is something that often precedes the facilitation of having, except when you’re surprised by the receiving. Think of how many times you’ve been pleasantly surprised . . . then think of having a want and simply investing that want into a deep sense of knowing it will come. This is being fully invested in the moment — ‘OK’ to the degree — aware that ‘OK’ is exactly who you are . . . come what may. The perfect mantra for this is: “I am who I am and that is that” . . . enjoying the surprise of receiving life as it arrives. You are experiencing your experience without needing a witness to make it “OK”. You don’t require justification, verification, or confirmation of your experience, or your existence . . . you are who you are.
This is what yogis call awakening . . . it comes with confidence; it comes with simplicity, and it comes with trust and joy.
In today’s world there’s an obsession with witness, and to be witnessed; there’s also a need to justify and explain each experience. This is not living . . . this is witnessing an explanation of living. With this separation from the actual experience of life, there’s tremendous and collective human pain. The purpose of life has become the avoidance of this pain. Humanity has shifted into this “lifeless” mode over the past five hundred years of the industrial revolution . . . a life struggling to reduce the pain of life.
Our prayer is that you become the solution; that you employ the technology of a conscious daily routine to fully enter into each moment and experience your experience without the slightest justification, explanation, or need for a witness of authorization — determine, once and for all time — you’re not only ‘OK’ . . . you’re way beyond it . . . look around you . . . find all those who need this . . . OK?
