Letter to a Friend – Confusion about Awakening and Reality Tunnels


I am glad we ran into the confusion about awakening and reality tunnels.

All of this can be very confusing. Truth cannot be spoken nor thought so we can only point towards This here now. And the pointers are often paradoxical….like almost always!
Enlightenment/Truth is not a reality tunnel. It is not a concept, opinion, experience, belief or point of view. It is not anything perceivable or conceivable. And yet it expresses as everything.
It is total freedom (Svatantraya). Freedom from all reality tunnels and also the freedom to express as any reality tunnel. It is us just the way we are.
We are multi-dimensional beings and there are skillful and effective means (upayas) to enhance every dimension of our being… as humans, we live and function in reality tunnels. Very few step off the train.
Conscious Living is all inclusive…it includes every aspect of our being and transcends being. I will cover this at the Monday Night Meeting and again in the Intensive.
Existential exploration, coaching or therapy is an upaya. They require existential acts of courage… the willingness to turn the light of truth on oneself and then take action. They are great yogas.
As it says on the first page of our website

Conscious Living is for those of us who are deeply interested in realizing the truth of our being and living this truth in the relationships and activities of our everyday life.

Love and accept yourself as you are! You are as much an expression of This as anyone or anything.
