When you find your inner space of consciousness you find something permanent, a security and a love that gives you the ability to say yes to everything: to live abundantly, to find your own power and to move forward.
Consciousness is the only thing that is real, everything else is illusion. It has been given many names, but I like to call it love-consciousness.
The difference between various aspects of consciousness is the level of vibration. There are aspects of slow vibration such as fear, and acts of lower vibration such as violence, war, prejudice or anything based in scarcity. When we begin to raise the vibration back to its original nature everything is transformed into love.
Love always rises to the highest vibration but the intellect fights because it wants to retain control. It wants everything to have an explanation. But consciousness comes from the heart, from omniscience, from the absolute. Through it, the human condition begins to be expressed in its highest form. We begin to become that.
Vulnerability and emotion are the language of the heart. When I am vulnerable, my heart is open to give and receive. It is not protected with false masks or deception. When you dare to be vulnerable you go beyond your comfort zone, you enter the unknown, you lose control, you face the fear of rejection and you put your own truth above the need to please others. Vulnerability is the highest act of self-love, the key to freedom from co-dependency and the weak crutch of external approval. Test it for yourself. Perhaps you will discover unique beauty in parts of yourself you had learned to avoid.
As you walk the path to awakening, do not confuse surrender with passivity. Do not think that embracing this moment, accepting what is coming, means sitting around waiting for everything to fall from the sky. Life does not work like that; you must get things moving. Just waiting for it to happen results in inertia and stagnation. Many people stay in that space of passivity and then, when nothing happens, they feel victimized.
There is no guarantee when you start to cultivate trust in yourself. You trust, bypassing the fears and letting go your protection and control. You trust, choosing time and again to embrace life instead of resisting it. In doing so, you realize that the best is always coming to you, even if it does not seem like it at the time.
Once you dwell in love-consciousness, there is nothing you cannot do, because you feel secure within yourself. That sense of security is the most important thing you can give yourself, because you deserve love, you deserve to shine.
If you focus on appreciation, love and gratitude, you let go of addictions and limitations. Your experience of peace, happiness, beauty and love will be so abundant that you will give that abundance to others.
