Enjoy the freedom of not living up to your thoughts. Allow every thought to come and go so that you recognize spaciousness.
Entering into a more spacious existence is pure freedom. This said, we are made up of 99.9% space so it makes sense for us to give ourselves "space."
The true Self, that which we are naturally, will emanate more and more as we release the image of our self, the one we call by name, our personality, the so-called doer of everything in our lives.
There is no self.
When we are the awareness of everything that happens, our true identity is, and thus, space is recognized. When you look into the clear night sky, you are aware of stars, the moon, the planets. You are the awareness of all the happenings given the names of stars, moon and planets. Without space, you wouldn't perceive these happenings. Space is needed for this to happen.
When you sit in an office space, you're aware of the computer, the phone, pictures...all names given to that which is occurring.
Yet, there needs to be space in order for you to witness them. This said, 99.9% of the room is filled with space, but we don't
notice the space, the formlessness.
Why? Because our self, our physical mind, is fixated on that which is happening instead of that which we are. And what is happening, the names we give to things, people, etc. is not real. It's all imaginary...that which comes and goes.
Our true Self is space, that which is permanent, is the perceiver of everything that is named, including our own name. It's no coincidence that we say sometimes, "I need more space. Give me some space," when we are feeling separate from that which
Today, recognize your true Self in the your spaciousness, and be the witness of that which is happening without identifying with
it. You are not that which occurs. You are pure unbounded space! If someone asks you what you are doing, just say that you are "spaced out." :)
