BEYOND MINDFULNESS - Insight, Yearning, Letting go.
Mindfulness is a popular way of becoming more conscious of our self, and more aware of how our consciousness and the world in which we live works. We can gain Insight into our interconnectedness, and the realities of our existence. Mindfulness can lead to a greater openness and balance; it can also awaken within us a longing to go beyond ourselves.
It leads us to an acceptance of ‘what is’, and an openness to ‘what may come’. Mindfulness leads to the inner realisation that our ordinary consciousness has limitations, and to be truly free, open and balanced, we need to go beyond the limitations of our self. It awakens our yearning to reconnect with the Source, to respond to the call of the Spirit that we can realise that it emanates from within This new state of consciousness leads us to a deeper insight, to a deeper awareness of the eternal divine Spirit-spark that is within us, but not of us. We become aware that we are connected with the Spirit in us, but we realise that we are not yet consciously connected with It. We feel deeply our incompleteness, and we long to become whole.
This is when we realise that Mindfulness is part of a process; it is both an important starting point and an indispensable aid in that process. With our yearning for a conscious connection with the Spirit that we know can be vivified within us, we are now willing do whatever is necessary to bring this belief, this inner knowledge, into fulfilment, into a new living Reality. Through this process we discover how our egocentric consciousness hinders our connectedness with the Spirit, and how we must let go of the self interest of our old consciousness, in order for it to be transformed into a new Soul consciousness.
We – our ordinary self – now surrenders to this process: mindfulness can lead to selflessness, and selflessness to a New Soul Consciousness. The new attitude of life that results from this Soul Consciousness leads ultimately to a conscious connection with the Spirit, to Spirit-Soul-Consciousness.
