When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me, and without pain.
From this I understand that
what I want also wants me,
is looking for me and attracting me.
There is a great secret here
for anyone who can grasp it.
~ Shams Tabrizi
It’s not that I even believe in this (what Tabrizi wrote above). Or that I don’t either. It is quite simply how I have operated most of the time, all my life, always spontaneously obeying an inner impulse. It’s THAT uncomplicated and produces unwavering faith, clarity of thought, absolute focus and un-conflicted behaviour.
It’s what I have come to call Vastness that not only takes care of everything and that I have always naturally relied on or slipped into, in times of mega trouble. Like when a robber accosted me in my own home, more than 35 years ago – with a knife to my throat, and later, hands tied behind my back and gagged.
Absolutely nothing can harm or hurt us
When we are Vastness itself, when we are our True Selves or the Universe, our Divine or Buddha Selves or Souls, there is absolutely nothing that can harm or hurt us.
So, likewise, when we are rooted in our Being rather than our human self, we can easily create or manifest anything. Although we may not even bother to do so. Because we are following a Divine Plan, a totally different agenda altogether from the human one, where people need to be able to say, “Look at me, look at what I have done. I must be a good or clever person because I have done all of these things that the world applauds.” Only our human self needs that and there is nothing wrong with that.
Narrowness of Being
However, it brings with it so much limitation, so much stress and anxiety, so much “narrowness of being”, another favourite term that has come through me.
The idea is to move towards being utterly relaxed and move as all of Nature moves. There is no hurry, no urgency, unless the moment calls for it, unless we are bidden by this Life Force, this Vastness which is all that we are, all that we ever need, all there really is, that is true and real.
Stop the chase now!
Nothing else is. If you can help it, stop the chase. Now. If you need to keep going, then, by all means do so. Then, that too, is according to Divine Plan.
Just know that you have been informed. And when the time comes, you too, will heed these words. You will shift and operate in a completely different way.
Often, I do not bother to explain to others because they couldn’t possibly understand. And, I allow myself to appear as human as they are. At other times, when people are prepared to return to the Innocence of who they really are, which also means that they are open and aligned with Higher Intelligence, I lead them to the Vastness that they already are.
Beyond beautiful & spectacular
And in those instances, it is Beyond Beautiful and Spectacular. It is Pure Love, from which Pure Joy then arises and Peace Pervades, and we are undeniably One.
So, we don’t have to race around but to be still and not even command, but quietly call forth as we fall gracefully into alignment, into the Vastness that we all are.
Abundance is already yours
Blessed be. Abundance is already yours because Abundance is You and You are Abundance itself. There is absolutely no separation whatsoever.
Be the Master that you already are.
