Objects exist in duality… you are the changeless space of love they come and go in. New MJ Awakening Blog

LETTING GO OF ALL OBJECTS

This morning as I awoke, I found myself spontaneously meditating on how strongly the mind is attached to physical objects in this world of infinite forms. I remember as a child dreaming of getting a new toy and believing once I had it I could play with it whenever I wanted and be happy… ha! 

The realization today is about the importance of knowing clearly that no physical object (person, place, or thing) has the power to truly bring us happiness. Because the belief that ANY object has the power to give me happiness means that at some level I feel lack and believe this object will fill/take away that lack. But is this true? Can an object ever truly fulfill me?

When I see for myself that they can’t, because the root sense of “lack” is still present even after I acquire the object, then the only thing to do is drop into my heart, into presence, and go straight to this feeling of lack. To really be present with it. To feel its pain and to simply love it, as it is. That’s it. 

So instead of reacting to the sense of lack, arguing with it, or trying to fix it, I am simply giving it space and love…. space and love….space and love.
