Happiness Is the Truth

Monday, February 15th, 2016 by Hale Dwoskin

“Happiness Is the Truth”

These words from the Pharrell Williams song, “Happy,” can point you toward discovering the truth of who or what you are.

We live our lives as though if we could have, be, or do more, then sometime in the future we would be happy. When we live our lives based on this misconception, we obscure what is obvious. Happiness is our basic nature.

As you explore this for yourself, you will discover that when you appear to get happiness from outside yourself, it is just a trick of the mind to keep you looking away from the happiness that is already right here, right now.

Beingness Awareness Love

The Ocean of Beingness, Awareness and Love

Most of the time we go from experience to experience missing the essential nature of every experience. Because we have missed the richness and beauty that lies at the heart of every experience, we feel empty inside and mistakenly believe that if we simply change what we are experiencing all will be well again.

When we focus on fixing or changing our experience we only feel more isolated and our experiences feel less satisfying. This causes us to crave more and better experiences which simply reinforces the same feeling of lack and incompleteness. There is no satisfaction in any external experience in and of itself.

When we allow ourselves to look beyond the experience of the moment into its essence we discover an aliveness, peace, and joy that is indescribable.

This is because we are actually touching the very nature of experience which is the bridge beyond mere experiencing.

This changeless essence in every experience is Beingness, Awareness, and Love.

This may not seem obvious at first, however if we pay attention we can look through the experience to this pure Beingness/Awareness/Love that is always right here right now no matter what is being experienced.

The more we simply welcome, allow, or simply give our loving attention to this the more obvious this becomes and the more we are drawn into this beautiful heart of All.

Please do not take my word for this. Simply pay attention to this in your life and allow its magic to unfold within you.

This is the type of material we explore in all our retreats and especially The Advanced Retreat coming in April.

Please join me this April for the Advannced Retreat if you have already attended a 6, 7 or 9 Day Sedona Method Retreat so we can deepen our exploration of truth together and support each other in being Freedom itself.

What Is Beyond

Opening to Light

Opening to Light

We live in a world of our own imagination.

We believe that we are a body in a world that is separate and hostile to us.

We have forgotten that all we experience is as real as the dreams we had last night. And just like in last night’s dreams, the everyday world and everyone living in it are contained in our own consciousness.

If we are interested in being fully alive as opposed to living in the waking dream, it is important to discover that all we experience is merely the surface of the mind. And for most of us, the surface of our minds are quite turbulent with trial and tribulation — even when things appear to be going our way.

A great way to discover that we are not as limited to or bound by this dream as we appear to be is to inquire into its nature. A great question to use for this is simply, “What is beyond?

This question is not only helpful in our awakening from limitation, it is also very helpful in everyday life. Often we take our daily challenges and limiting beliefs about ourselves and what is possible for us at face value. Yet if we simply inquire what is beyond that which is appearing in this moment, our illusions begin to melt in the light of awareness. This helps us to deal with whatever challenge we are facing in this moment with greater ease and clarity.

The question of, “What is beyond?” is also a very powerful contemplation or meditation. It can help you to see through whatever limitation you appear to be experiencing in this moment and see to the living truth that is always right beyond it.

The more you inquire the more you discover all that appeared so real and solid is only an appearance. The One Reality begins to shine through into your waking consciousness.

Explore this question for yourself and discover its power to free you on every level.

This is the type of material we explore in all our retreats, and especially on the Advanced Retreat we are having this April.

The Advanced Retreat is designed to help you uncover and live that presence of awareness or Beingness that is your basic nature. It is open to anyone who has already attended a 6-, 7- or 9-Day Sedona Method Retreat.

I hope you will join me and the wonderful group of likeminded people in taking this powerful next step in your liberation. http://www.Sedona.com/April2016retreat
