Energy goes where attention flows
Energy goes where attention flows
Truth and its quest is inherent in our human form, its seed makes man move mountains and battle in life to honor the highest calling from within.>
Yet ask a few people do they live by truth? They will laugh at you. Most live to survive a few to thrive and even less to truthful living.
Such is the nature of ones being that in the midst of survival and thriving there is a niggling doubt as to something else and not being fulfilled, could it be this quest of truth?
Can truth be taught ? In my experience not directly, its really only from within oneself. Many Gurus, New age teachers, Saints etc can only direct you to yourself and then only if they have themselves experienced this truth, otherwise its just a blind following (masking as truth) getting one no where to truth just moving around in circles. Listen to your own inner guidance and the grace will guide you.>
So if it always comes back to you whether in the material realm or in the spiritual realm actually there is no separation between the two, its just of the intention alone, and you arrive back in the midst of life which is not spirit or material but life in its purest untouched by commercial or spiritual input of how to live in truth.
Yet bounded by words, concepts, beliefs how does one arrive to a place of truth in oneself? By divine grace alone can such a realization be arrived after all other roads no longer find fulfillment one stops and looks to the sky, the earth, the air, the sea, the sun and all around life as it happens without the manipulations of spirit or material minds, and gives up to the new dawning then life itself fills up the empty space created from within.
This dropping of oneself is the final stop, and has been termed in many ways, free, surrender, let go, empty, nothingness etc These concepts will not ENTER you until YOU yourself are ready.
Be cautious in anyone who says I can lead you the way to your truth as really no one can except yourself, with the greatest yearning for it, as with the yearning for financial success, one must want truth for oneself alone in its purity of life, not to manipulate others or have supernatural powers etc Energy goes where attention flows is the way to truth also, your sheer determination to accept nothing short of the truth will lead you.
As Eliot says 'In my end is my beginning'
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.”
? T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
