Rather Than Staying Asleep…

Posted on

rather than

Rather than staying asleep to what is…

Rather than thinking and telling over and over the same stories about yourself and life …

Rather than affirmations by rote…

Rather than trying to become anything you think you are not, including: worthy, good, childlike, holy, pure, peaceful, deserving…

Rather than chanting, meditating, om-ing, yoga-ing, breathing by the book…

Rather than turning to shamans, wise ones, gurus, teachers…

Rather than books, videos, crystals, satsangs, meetings, seminars, firewalks, channelings, retreats…

Rather than imagining that you have to find, give up, take on, release, grow, transform…

* * * * *

Nothing ever wrong or misguided with any of these, and rather than putting all your attention into them, why not simply start looking?

Ask: “What am I?” then look where this points.

Is there an actual “I” to be found?

Where is it?


All it takes is a single looking, unchained from thinking; one clear seeing right here, right now.

Awakening… to the fact of no personal self; the reality of seamless, inseparable oneness.

It’s as close as your breath, as near as your nose. Look.

Much love…

  1. Rather than “videos…..”, except Lisa Kathleen’s! Just want to say “Thanks!”

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Gilbert… and you are very welcome!

  3. Dear Lisa,
    I downloaded a great audio on my mp3 some time ago, when i worked with the LU-process – maybe it was a video that I taped the sound of – it was a male reader, and the audio entailed the words “mental illness.” It lasted about 40 minutes i think, and was read by a man.
    If you have nay idea where to find this, Lisa, i would be so grateful.

    warm hugs


  4. Reblogged this on Apollosolaris's Blog and commented:
    Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will…..

  5. This is classic, so simple but not not always easy. How many will heed the call? Well, the answer is blowing in the wind, and all bets are off.
