Being Separated from Awareness

Consciousness, or Being, or God, if you will, is in all living things. When we try to "find God" by using our minds as a tool , it is useless and frustrating. We end up in a state of suffering; for some it can be merely a mild discomfort, and for others it can be extreme, depending on how deeply the person is trying to "think" his way to be closer to Being.

I'll put it simply: the key is not resisting.

When we turn loose of the resisting by simply going into the quiet stillness, a centered place residing inside all of us, we can let all thoughts cease, all emotions, and just Be. We enter the precious Stillness. There we experience Being, or God. The ego part of who we are ceases to exist and the oneness of the real "you", the Consciousness, resides and is always there.

"Stand Still" poem


"Stand Still"
by David Wagoner

Stand still.
The trees ahead and bushes beside you are not lost.
Wherever you are is called Here, and you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen.
It answers, I have made this place around you. If you leave it, you may come back again, saying
Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are.
You must let it find you.

One day life no longer made any sense. I began enquiring, "Who am I", What am I", and "What's the purpose of this life?"
