This past weekend I was at a book sale and a book presented itself to me as one I needed to read. The book is called, Lucid Living and it is by Tim Freke. The back cover says: “a book you can read in an hour that will turn your world inside out.” That is a very catching line and an hour seemed like an amount of time I could give to a big change in perspective. Except I decided I wanted to share this experience so I brought it to work and for group therapy we eight read the book together and it pushed the parameters of all of our thinking.
In the book he shared seven insights, which were definitely expansive. The points that stood out for me in our class reading include:
Life is not what it seems to be.
Life is a mystery.
You are not who you think you are.
You are not a person. (Then who are you?)
How come you never stop to wonder?
Is there anything you can be absolutely certain about?
Your experience of this moment is all you can absolutely be sure of.
You are the experiencer of the experience.
You are awareness witnessing the flow of experiences.
You are timeless awareness dreaming itself to be a person in time.
As awareness we are all one.
Being one is loving all.
These ideas question much of what we believe as real and invites us to grow into a more expanded view of who we are and what is possible?
This is particularly interesting to me: I am not a person, I am awareness aware of itself. I am awareness witnessing my life-dream. These ideas fit from what I understand as unity consciousness. We are all awareness in which this awareness in dreaming of our different expressions.
I hope these ideas have caused you to wonder about who you are and what these ideas mean. Have a good day.
Here is a Tim Freke video that you might find enlightening.
