Being Generous To Our Self

Our ‘self’ is consciousness’s identification with the mind’s projections or collection of ideas. This collection of ideas is not our complete picture, and so we doubt and are confused. We ignore that which is watching over: the essence of consciousness has never been confused as it is pure awareness.

The purpose of meditation is the practice of giving open space for the mind to settle down. If we struggle with our mind, this only serves to make it seem fixed and real when, in reality, it is just circling thoughts, which can give rise to those sh*tty days šŸ™‚

Being generous is being at peace, and patient with this self. We stop feeding the mind’s neuroses, and no longer judge it ā€“ but we don’t give up on our self. We just relax with it ā€¦ and the door opens. When we (pure consciousness) recognise that we are free, then the mind will be free, and a friendship dawns. We are free in the very moment of seeing, when the penny drops and the door opens!

Luke 11.9
ā€œI tell you, even though he will not get up to provide for him
because of his friendship, yet because of the manā€™s persistence,
he will get up and give him as much as he needs.Ā 

ā€œSo IĀ tellĀ you: AskĀ andĀ it will be givenĀ to you;Ā seekĀ andĀ you will find;Ā 
knockĀ and the door will be openedĀ to you.Ā For everyone who asks receives;
he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.ā€¦”

There are many doors, and many mansions.
