# 3 – Lovely image and text….



# 4 – More from Adyashanti on enlightenment…..Stimulating….

Do not think that enlightenment is going to make you special—it’s not. If you feel special in any way, then enlightenment has not occurred. I meet a lot of people who think they are enlightened and awake simply because they have had a very moving spiritual experience. They wear their enlightenment on their sleeve like a badge of honor. They sit among friends and talk about how awake they are while sipping coffee at a cafe.

The funny thing about enlightenment is that when it is authentic, there is no one to claim it. Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke. I use the word enlightenment all the time—not to point you toward it but to point you beyond it. Do not get stuck in enlightenment.

# 6 – Interesting to think of how “achieve” and “earn” are action-oriented, future-oriented and driven by the mental body, whereas “allow,” at least in my overview of things, is BEing-oriented, heart-driven and takes place in the Now……..

We would like you to release the word “achieve” or “earn” from your vocabulary and from your understanding, altogether; and we would like you to replace those words with the word “allow”. You’re wanting to allow your Well-being, not achieve it. It’s not something that you need to earn. All you have to do is decide what it is you would like to experience, and then allow it in order to achieve it. It isn’t something you have to struggle for or try for. You are all worthy beings. You are deserving of this Well-being.—Abraham

  1. Hi Zirah :-) Thank you for the inspiration. :-) <3 I love the photo with the cat and the one with the sunflower at the top. The quote in tip #1 reminds me of something I used to think about while running. I thought that it was the running and the nature I saw around me while running that gave me life. It was my super energy and inspiration source. I now think that running is like running energy and what it does is peel away some of the layers so that I can feel the life in me better. Also nature acts like an coherency amplifier. It lights up what is coherent in me which makes me feel more alive. When I was in my early 30s, I read a couple of books about meditating and enlightenment and it seemed inaccessible. Twenty years passed before I tried meditating again. :-) I still don't know what enlightenment means. I think this is okay. I am happy with the lightness that results from continuing to peel off the layers and meditating doesn't seem like such a struggle anymore. I think that has to do with your tip #6. I didn't understand at the beginning what it meant to allow. Somewhere along the way, the meditating switched from effort to allowing. I read your post about rice. Wow! I haven't eaten rice in over 8 years. I decided there was too much sugar in it for my body. I didn't know about the contamination.

    1. Loved your comment/insight about nature being a coherency amplifier. Had never thought about it in those words, but so true and nice to have that awareness.

      1. I have been going through the photos I took in the middle of April in the woods in Allerton Park. They have reminded me of how I felt when walking in the woods those two days. Spring was new and the memory of winter was still strong. The woodland floor was covered in wildflowers, the birds were singing, and the air was full of the scents of the woods. The weather was beautiful. I felt like someone had thought… okay…. You wish to feel the power of love and joy. We will show you what it feels like…. I felt like the energy was pouring through me and scrubbing out all the crinkling and prickly stuff. It seemed like I was wrapped in a warm and exhilarating blanket of moving and swirling joyful and loving energy. I don’t really know how to put it into words. At the time, I was thinking… so, this is what coherency feels like intense joy and love that asks no questions and makes no demands. It just IS.

      2. Ummmm, yes, for me coherence is alignment, harmony and being in the flow, and it definitely sounds like that’s what was happening in and around you. What a wonderful experience.
