“Who you are trying to become is your greatest enemy! It’s who Adam and Eve were trying to become that blinded them from who they were!”
Only in Awakening to our true Self will we discover true liberty, love and living. There are many who TRY to love the unlovable, but struggle to even love their own family members. There are many who TRY to live, but are in a continual struggle with their past, allowing it to define them, and anxious about their future, allowing it to rob them of the present. There are many who TRY to walk in freedom, but realize quickly that even their attempts at freedom are evidence of their bondage and they use this perceived freedom as a way to cover their nakedness!
I have discovered that Life, Love and Freedom cannot be attained by self-effort…no matter how much I TRY, I always come up wanting. My FREEDOM was not worked for, it was discovered within. My ability to unconditionally LOVE did not come through spiritual discipline, hours of prayer or weeks of fasting, it too was discovered within! LIVING is more than just one’s ability to interact with the world; LIVING is only discovered in Christ as we realize that the veil of the false self was torn and removed in our co-crucifixion. In this awakening we STOP trying and start LIVING! The need to BECOME fades away in the realization of BEING! Trying to BECOME, hides the authentic you! We are, whether we have awakened to this reality or not, hidden in Christ; and Christ is hidden in us! The effort to become causes us to hide from the Christ, from our divinity. Like Adam we find ourselves running from the sacred place, to hide behind the bush of ego. We use our success, our platforms, and our accomplishments to clothe our nakedness and shame; to hide the insecurities, fears and disgrace we want no one else to see. And in this place of disgrace, we still find grace! We hear the question, “Who told you that you were naked?” And in the arms of Love Himself we find, for the first time, the Freedom to let go of ego and the power to just be! In Christ you are FREE to just BE!
There is no such thing as an insignificant moment! Each and every moment carries with it a significant opportunity to live, move and enjoy ourselves in the Christ! The journey of transfiguration is now, the moment is here, this is all that is.
