Moving from SILENCE STILLNESS we may notice after each session there is a definite opening for us to be listening in a lot more carefully as to what has been revealed when we touch what can be called UNITY CONSCIOUSNESS. We have allowed ourselves to let go into the higher matrix through the doorway of the Unknown. This takes courage for a person at first after they start to realize what it is they are practicing. We are opening ourselves maybe for the first time to the possibility of seeing into the Source of our life from the vertical realms that transcend the linear consensus reality that most people have never questioned.
With each session we can further let go of who/what we had conceived of ourselves to be. In so doing, we can open ourselves to be re-set with a fresh new view revealing new levels of awareness. Consciousness informs from the vertical quantum realms from insight and revelation of the Spiritual and the ego/mind seems to learn from the sequential or linear or what is considered Newtonian.
There is an old saying, that goes, “we must die before we die”, so what is it that dies? We have been with a friend or relative who has died physically and in the process of letting go of the part that dies, the body/mind, we may have listened with them as to what they thought they had or had not done right or wrong in their life and had remorse or professed their love at that moment for us or others. I can relate to this as I did this with my grandfathers and them with me. Let us not wait until we die to the psycho-physical to say or do what we need to, in our relationship to others. Through Silence Stillness we can embrace the death of “what is not” by awakening the Witness and from the Prescence of “What IS” let go of the stranglehold of its survival agenda in all its forms. It is the seeming isolated world of form that is the major distraction from trusting the formlessness of the Spirits power which can’t be seen but is Sourcing all that emerges in the manifest whirl of world.
Once we awaken to the vertical in consciousness/awareness of the NOW, we have a chance to step outside of this mortal shell, “death, where is thy victory?” We now have the awareness to have CLARITY, or standing free from “what is not” clear enough to see from the realm of non attachment truly. Remember, the “home that is nowhere, that is the true place,” if you take the word nowhere and break it down to the root, it reveals itself as NOW HERE. So, the true NOW is our true place or doorway to the INFINITE as our Source because INFINITE SOURCE is always HERE NOW, except that we may not have accessed contact because of the distortion of finite vibrational definitions with which the mind tends to become attached and distracted.
Layering meanings on the Universe can get in the way of Reality revealing itself AS IT IS. We, in our attempt to make sense of why we are here have amassed many philosophies, theories, and concepts about the nature of existence. In the practice of SILENCE STILLNESS we have created an opening to accept “what is” and let ISNESS reveal it’s nature to our consciousness as UNITY. To allow the harmony of “what is” to touch us with its profundity as LOVE which is the realization of the support that is accessible once we open to it as our SOURCE AND NATURE.
Our involvement with our Art of Aikido has as its Primary Principle, that Budo or the way of the Spiritual warrior is Love, from our Founder, Moreihei Uyeshiba and all other Principles follow this profound realization from his enlightenment. That we are to Unify ourselves Spiritually and forge our Lives with a commitment to “awakening”, through disciplining our waywardness in the world to the Principles of the Universe and live our lives as examples of Free, Open, and Existential Truth and Light. That we realize that the Universe is and has always been intrinsically living AS EXISTENCE through the ISNESS that it is, ETERNALLY, UNDEFINED.
