Every experience is a gift from the spirit, from God, from the unknown, from the universe, from something called in all sorts of things…
The unknown or God is included the divine self that you haven’t experienced yet. And there is always further unknown and deeper divine space within us.
No matter what and how our state of consciousness perceives a happening, we are unmistakably choosing all our experiences at the spiritual level. It doesn’t matter what circumstances are. And every experience has the door to the next spiritual stage.
Therefore if we can fully accept our experience with our hearts and spirits as it is without any resistance and say, “Thank God for everything,” the door to the next stage will be opened naturally because it’s definitely connected with everything else for deeper experience.
Don’t try to think for better understanding. Everything important that is invisible can be felt in the heart.
Oneness is not a concept, but something that you feel deep inside. If you cannot feel it in your heart, you have to be completely calm your mind first. Be still and quiet. Totally. Be completely to forget about oneself.
Then you will be naturally able to feel oneness. Never ask for more. The more you ask for it, the farther away it gets. Because we are always one itself and have never been separated from it.
We all just forgot the important sense of oneness because of the visible separateness and anxiety, and are on the journey of rediscovering it again and living it.
Taste “present moment” fully. Everything exists here and now. It’s never in the past or the future.
Mind creates selfish stories, produces many critical and negative thoughts, and continue to insist on the legitimacy of the ego. They’re just ideas that appear and disappear.
They’re not you, so it’s essential that you stay away from them when you live your essence.
I think meditation is one of the methods. And I always recommend dynamic meditation, which is easier to work on than static meditation.
Dynamic meditation is whatever repeats simple and rhythmic movements.
For example, walking alone in nature, dancing, riding a bicycle, cleaning, Japanese archery, etc…. Anyway, it’s important to concentrate on simple and rhythmic movements so as to forget to be doing it.
In fact, when I tried static meditation many times to attain enlightenment, I couldn’t get out of my mind at all and had thought I couldn’t meditate for years. But I was completely concentrating on my self-inquiry as I walked the shopping center when I had experienced a mysterious experience. And that was the dynamic meditation I didn’t even realize that I was doing it.
Another important thing is not to try to attain enlightenment or to get something.
It’s completely to devote yourself to the present.
