That which wants nothing
Behind everything that I think I am lies a Still Awareness that wants nothing. Not wanting is the ultimate freedom. Being free is the ultimate joy. But it is a quiet joy that should not be confused with the temporary high we get from satisfying a desire. It may be true that our souls have preferences. But again, this should not be confused with wanting. Our soul’s preference is merely to lure us back into awareness of our true nature, which is the joy and freedom of simply being. When storm clouds are gathering, remember what it is that lies beyond all your current thoughts and beliefs. Lean gently toward that Still Awareness that wants nothing, and it will embrace you with open arms, and you will be filled with the incredible lightness of Being.
