Just Watching; Parked in NeutralThere is a supra-intelligent Self more awake and aware than us, that has the resolve to cast aside all that we have heard, read, or been conditioned to believe or imagine is true. It is the aspect of us that can never entirely forget or overlook its eternal essence, only who we imagine or dream ourselves to be. Inevitably, we all learn to rely on our own direct and unfiltered experiences of life, particularly as the focus of mind activity transitions from filtering life through a personal point of view and settles into a primal, alert, and relaxed wakefulness.
Rather than struggling with how to manage life’s uncertainties and fears, there is an aspect of all of us that is in perpetual repose; just parked in neutral. It is the part of us that makes room for life’s circumstances to flow through. This extremely intimate aspect of Cosmic Consciousness seamlessly functions at a level of intelligence far beyond the capacity of our personal sense of self to understand. It just needs to be left alone. My multi-disciplinary approach to Self-discovery, all point to the straightforward and plain truth that we are not here to awaken to, but as the eternal aware presence that illuminates the world.
My ongoing and evolving approach to my teaching, counseling, and healing practices is rooted in my shamanic meditation practice of Just Watching. While my personal sense of self is parked in neutral, I can consciously invest my time exploring the timeless nature of reality, where the creative, and knowing qualities of mind inform, but not define me. The ever-present spirits of nature are powerful tools for healing and transformation, that remind me when I am casting a shadowing upon my own light. I live and work out of the Two Eagles, Horse & Wolf Retreat Center, in Tucson, Arizona. If you are tired of running away from uncertainty and fear and wish to stand your ground, and take back your power of choice, now is the time to explore the luminous space between thoughts and other objects of attention – together. Let’s keep the light on for each other.
