Living On The Verge: Your Slice of Stillness

DSC_0098Drop your drama and step beyond your busy mind and you will shift into a space—a pure awareness—where you know who you are and you like what you see. In this space, in this slice of stillness, you will see the perfect reflection of your being-ness. Glimpsing this perfect reflection over and over, even for a short period of time, you begin to trust in your essential pureness. You start to know yourself as basically good. And this is where your life begins to blossom—in your slice of stillness, staring at your perfect reflection, you feel completely awake and fully alive.

Being fully alive isn’t something just that happens when you are at the beach, on a mountaintop, or in the middle of a crisis. Being fully alive is a sense of feeling bright, clear, and connected. It emerges when you are open and available to life in this moment, right here and right now. it comes and goes in a flash and is not something you can possess. This slice of stillness, this glimpse of pure awareness, instead must be directly experienced.

You can practice experiencing your being-ness in three simple ways:

  1. Drop your drama by noticing when you get caught in your made up story about yourself or others. Drama is a waste of energy and blocks you from your perfect reflection.
  2. Step beyond your busy mind by noticing when you are distracted or pulled away from your mirror by your to-do list, worry about the future, or judgment. Over-thinking creates disturbance not stillness.
  3. Glimpse your perfect reflection by allowing yourself to rest in this very moment. Take a breath, look around you, don’t miss the opportunity to know who you are and to like what you see.

Drop, step, and glimpse.

Drop, step, and glimpse.

And in this slice of stillness you will see the world through your pure awareness. You will trust in your basic goodness and experience the sacredness of being alive.
