How Wonderful It Is

From the Ashtavakra Gita:

I am not the body, nor is the body mine. I am not a living being. I am consciousness. It was my thirst for living that was my bondage.

"Truly it is in the limitless ocean of myself, that stimulated by the colourful waves of the worlds everything suddenly arises in the wind of consciousness.

"How wonderful it is that in the limitless ocean of myself the waves of living beings arise, collide, play and disappear, according to their natures.

"All this wells up like waves in the sea. 
Recognising, "I am That",
why run around like someone in need?"

No Such Thing as Suffering

"Just as waves, foam and bubbles are not different from water, so all this
 that has emanated from oneself, is no other than oneself."  ~Ashtavakra Gita

The dream of the world can be very convincing
at times... but only because we believe it is real.
We know what it is to wake up from sleep.
Now it's time to wake up from
 the waking dream!

The great thing about the truth
is that by just hearing it,
it can set you free.
Recognize the truth in 
Candice O'Denver's transmission:

Affliction - 6.28.12 from Balanced View Candice on Vimeo.

"There are no rituals you have to go through.
There are no prayers you have to chant.
You simply have to awaken to your true nature,
Pure Awareness,
This is what you are right at this moment.
