Wander into Wondrous Joy
By Sandy Newbigging
You are a remarkable Being. You may not always think it or feel it, but this doesn’t stop it being true. You see; the ancient spiritual teachers were not lying when they said ‘you are what you seek’. Meaning, if you want peace, you are peace. If you want love, you are love and if you want freedom, then you are the freedom you seek. I appreciate this be confusing, especially if you aren’t feeling these stunning states of being in this very moment but the ‘you’ the spiritual teachers refer to is not your temporary thoughts and feelings, but instead, the permanent part of your brilliant Being.
I’ve come to conclude that the permanent aspect is conscious awareness. This awareness, which has been residing within you since before the day you were born, is peace, love, joy and so much more. However, you can miss it if your attention is mainly on your temporary thoughts and emotions. A key purpose of meditation is to become attentive to the presence of awareness that is aware of your thoughts, emotions, body and life circumstances. Due to the fact that you feel what you focus on, by resting inwardly attentive to your consciousness, you can immediately reconnect with the aspect of your Being that is truly remarkable.
