If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
If the Truth we all seek, whatever that may be, is to be found at the top of a hill, how can you find the direct route, the clearest path?
Know who you are.
Live with thought-free awareness. The mind is the source of the suffering blocking your path; only when controlled and quieted can Truth be found. A thought can give you a headache, but does not define who you are. Close the lid, turn off the screens, end the illusion by ceasing to believe in it.
Relinquish desire. Demand less; give more. Be content with you as you are.
Repress nothing. Express yourself fully in whatever way is right for you: shout, scream, cry, laugh, dance, protest, be silent or paint a picture. Be authentic, honest, open and truthful to yourself and all around you.
Be guided by your conscience, the heart-centred voiceless voice guiding your actions whilst gently pointing the way. If your heart tells you to do something, do it; if your mind tells you then reflect first for a while and tread with caution!
End your dependency on all that is perishable. Relationships break down, loved ones die, a well-paid job ends, your body ages. Celebrate being alive in every way. Death is but the shedding of an old overcoat, age the aging of physical body.
Take care of the Earth, our Mother. What we do unto this Earth we do unto ourselves. Living with this awareness and accepting fully your role as custodian and protector of this Earth is an important step in your journey towards Truth. Ask no longer what this Earth can do for you; ask instead what you can do for the Earth. When the time comes for you to leave your body do so with love, leaving behind an Earth enriched by your presence.
Live lovingly. Fill your life with love. Every loving act, no matter how small it may seem, brings peace to you and all around you. Express your love to all that lives: the plants and trees, the animals and birds, your brothers and sisters and the Earth herself. Immerse yourself in love totally, completely.
Stop blaming God. Be aware that we are all responsible: we have created the seedbed for the violence and destruction now casting its dark shadow over all that lives. Understand your responsibility: all your actions will be in complete awareness of their outcome and with no desire for reward.
End your perceived individuality, separation and sense of isolation, the product of your Westernised mind. Embrace all that lives with love as kindred living spirit.
Be free. Your freedom – your birthright – comes in freeing yourself from identification with mind-body-ego and all associated baggage. Be free of desire, expectation, fear and anxiety as you experience a sense of peace and liberation the like of which you have never known before.
Unique as you are there is no separation and so much shared feeling, common ground upon which we all stand for me to support you and you me.
Be who you are.
