Finding Our True Lineage
Returning to our inner intention.
There is a lineage calling within us all: it is our path to enlightenment.
This isn’t an organisation or tradition; it’s an inner longing.
It isn’t hope; it’s more like re-cognition.
We may all be pure consciousness but our path to realisation has its own influences. We naturally see things in a certain way, and this has nothing to do with doing our own thing. Rather, it is an inner realisation, where we learn experientially instead of ‘faking it’. We may follow a tradition (or traditions) for a while, and then we feel that we’re treading water, just going through the routine.
There’s an inner spark that illuminates and connects us to a stream of consciousness. This link is always present, but is lost in our gross hopes and fears.
When we investigate our true reality, we discover that this truth is not separate from the truth of others, but the intensity of flavour will be different.
This isn’t about obsession; it is about re-cognition.
It’s a personal enquiry into consciousness through meditation and study.
We cannot rely on others, as they are following their own lineage, and doing it their way. So what can we rely on? We can rely on “That which is not”. Yes, aversion is a path and attraction is a path. Recognising addiction to gross universal laws is our teacher and, in this way, we see how beings are driven and controlled:
The first gross law is attraction.
The second gross law is repulsion.
Ignoring these two gross laws is the third gross law of indifference.
These gross laws are driven by our self belief, and thus we come under their control. When we no longer hold on to self belief, we realise our perfect state of pure consciousness and have found our lineage:
Attraction becomes emptiness.
Before this, we filled emptiness with concepts.
Aversion becomes consciousness.
Before this, we judged everything through preconceived concepts.
Ignorance becomes compassion.
Before this, we were competitive.
Our lineage is within.
Our happiness is within.
Don’t dismiss this as a cliché.
