what do you mean in your bio when you say "embracing all" ?
Glad you asked ^_^
If you haven’t learned at this point in your life yet, an essential characteristic of human life is impermanence. Things are always changing. Internally, thoughts and emotions pass through your consciousness but never linger there permanently. What is permanent is the silent observer of these thoughts and emotions coming and going — our consciousness.
We cannot identify ourselves by our emotions or thoughts because they only pass through. It is not what we are. Thoughts and emotions are only visitors, while consciousness is the home into which they enter. When they leave, the house is still there. Our consciousness is ever-present, amidst a world defined by change. Pure consciousness does not take sides, it is merely the unbiased witness of all we experience. Thoughts and emotions cause us to put labels on things, they make us feel that something must be deemed essentially “good” or “bad” in order to make sense of things or protect ourselves, which is all false self-image making as a result of the ego.
But here’s the thing, labeling causes resistance to what is. Resistance causes us to close ourselves off from parts of the world. How can we ever feel free if we keep ourselves in shackles like that? (If you think something is good, you’ll resist everything that could take it away from you. If you think something is bad, you’ll resist everything that brings you closer to it). Alternatively, if you embrace everything, you do not resist anything; our consciousness embraces everything by merely accepting all that is. That is liberation.
Consciousness is our true nature. It is the one part of us that is always there, witnessing everything else passing through. (Right now, become aware of what your mind is telling you. Since you are on the outside looking in on these thoughts and emotions, how could that be you? You can separate yourself from them.) If consciousness is our true nature, then we are all truly free, because consciousness creates the causes and conditions for liberation. Our thoughts and emotions are what create an illusion that we are limited.
So by saying that I am embracing all, means I am attempting to stay connected to the core of what I am and what we all are, pure consciousness, by letting thoughts and emotions pass through after I’ve learned what I need to from them, so that way I don’t identify with them and cause myself to feel restrained. It takes much practice to be more connected through awareness, but it’s probably the most worthwhile thing you could do for yourself (and others).
If you find that you can’t make sense of anything I just said, it’s probably because it’s your mind trying to understand the mind, and no essential truth can ever be understood on a mind level. It must be felt. While words can provide knowledge, they will never give you wisdom. Only experience can do that. So go live, friends.
