This weekend I found a “move” that makes it easier to more fully find, and rest in awareness. The move is the move to allow. Based on my observations so far, "allowing" could be synonymous with “awareness”. I say this because I know through direct experience that resting in awareness includes allowing, and I also know that allowing, in its truest sense, enables you to rest in awareness. One thing I want to share as well is allowing does not mean condone. It does not mean accept. It does not mean enable. It simply means, allow. Allow, rest in awareness, and respond. It helps eliminate the action of reaction. Respond rather than react. Allowing is a moveless move of peace. A moveless move of being.
This lesson on allowing was shared with me this past weekend by Anandamali. In case you don’t know, Anandamali is a spiritual teacher who is originally from Serbia (I would encourage you to check out his website and investigate whether his teachings resonate with you). He travels to KC a few times a year. Once Anandamali identified for us the “action” of allowing, its significance became very clear to me. Just after he mentioned it I saw that “allowing” was energetic move he was making to hold the space of Satsang. Through resting in awareness, through “allowing”, Anandamali held the sacred space of Satsang for us. “Allowing”, allowed anything that needed to be, to be, just as awareness does.
I was humbled to see and witness this from this wonderful teacher. It took me a day and a half to see him holding the space this way and upon doing so, it helped me to more fully and more easily embody resting in awareness. Anandamali shared beautiful insights and Shakti with us this weekend. Through his and our presence we brought forth learnings that will ripple into the universe just like the universe planned to do.
May you blessed with the courage, wisdom and humility, with the compassion to allow. May you be blessed with the grace to be, to simply rest as you are. May you be blessed to glimpse, feel and know your truest, highest self.
