My students have taught me
Waking Down in Mutuality .... that word mutuality is important. I hope my students benefit from working with me. If so, then the benefit is mutual. Here are some things that they have taught me.
A student from Seattle, in acknowledging transmission of consciousness, said:
Water will come through any crack and conscious will too.
A student in Fairfield, Iowa asked me to describe the experience of my awakening. I said I would share the experience but was concerned that the experience might be construed to be the awakening. He summed things up for me beautifully when he said.
The experience you had was not the realization. It was a way in which the realization could be experienced.
During a small group meeting at a Waking Down event, one participant was questioning if certain parts of his personality would ever shift. Another participant reflected:
We don't shift our personality until we fully embrace those traits that trouble us. We don't embrace in order to shift but when we embrace that is most likely when a shift can happen.
One of my students has been contemplating "awareness". He recently shared this insight.
Attention is equal to awareness plus an object whereas awareness is there all the time.
A student of mine in Fairfield posted to facebook:
Beautiful! As with Cielle's self-inquiry "What wants to be known now?" we can invite, as we stalk, those parts of the vast "unknown unknown" we most need to know right now to show themselves to us in some fashion. And then be wide open on all 'channels' of apprehension, knowing that we can't know what form or direction the "unknown unknown" will appear in...until it does.
A facebook quote that is circulating
It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the “I Am,” our real presence, can awaken.” ~ G.I. Gurdjieff
A student recenyly shared with me this insight:
What we most want to avoid is our doorway home. Open that doorway.
I am wanting to heal that which drove me out of my true heart space.
