Being the space for all of life
"We are THAT in which all of life, the whole universe, time and space and this moment including the experience of the body appears."

A dear, long-year friend asked me a deep question in an email this morning. This reply popped up in my consciousness. I thought it might also be useful to some of us, so I decided to share it, even though it is much longer then my usual sharings.
"Dear friend, we have trained, repeated and strengthened 'old patterns and habits' most of our life. Some of them we even inherited from our parents and forefathers ... and (if you want to go such far) from the history of the entire human race.
They are like well built 5-lane highways. In comparison the new habits are often only 'little paths' through the woods, just like small, fragile sprouts amidst big, strong trees. It can take quite some time until also they become 'wide highways' or trees. So walking through life gracefully and in beauty requires tremendous perseverance, patience and endurance.
As human beings - when we are open and interested - we are dealing with an never-ending stream of subtleties of unconscious habits showing up in consciousness. There is no actual end to the revealing. It ever goes deeper and deeper. And it ever becomes more subtle and subtle.
This journey does not finish in 'an happy end', like Hollywood or some 'self-declared finished gurus' love to promote. Of course this idea and promise is very popular and can attract quite a huge fellowship. Yet it is unfortunately misleading, quite painful and one of the biggest spiritual traps (for them and everyone following them) if it is believed. The ones who really knew have never claimed or promised this. And the ones who know and are willing to go deeper will not claim or promise this as well.
None of these habits and patterns are personal, even though they sometimes or temporarily can appear to be personal. Being able to distinguish this is a crucial element on our journey. It manifests and deepens only through proper integration, fully embracing the human body and nervous system and choiceless awareness.
As long as we want to change, fix or get rid of patterns and habits, this distinction might not have fully dropped all the way down 'into the cells' yet. We then experience what some call 'fluctuation'. It is not far away from what others may call 'hope'.
I am aware: all this does not sound very romantic, but it is true. It can liberate us at the core of our being when we allow this reality fully into our hearts and nervous systems.
I am happy to carry on walking TOGETHER with you if there is interest and openness to go deeper."

"In spite of all challenges, ripples and waves of every-day life, there is everlasting EMPTINESS, absence of mind. It is STILLNESS itself which is prior to all experiences. What a BLESSING to be THAT."

"There is nothing to do to BE AWARE. It is already. If 'we' gently shift your attention to the SPACE in which the 'sense of I', the body with all its experiences and the whole universe appear, we realize: I AM that SPACE.
From this very moment onwards all that is needed is to give the body & nervous system time to adjust. It gradually learns to be capable of allowing all of life to BE IN YOU most intimately. This IS non-separation or non-duality. ENJOY."
LOVE IS. Florian
