Holding on to a thought whether it be an idea, a judgment, keeps you feeling separate from the peace that you are. In practicing letting of of your thoughts, you can remain in your natural state of pure consciousness.
In life, there is always this misconception of truth and a refusal to believe that you can see the illusion. That may sound confusing at first, but the truth is, that the truth is harder to find in your life because you must seek it out and the illusion is easier to find. It is the easier road to take because illusion is placed in your life for you. There are many factors that take away the truth in your life and replace it with illusion and the biggest factor in our view is fear.
As you have forced connections and choice connections in your life, the purpose of your life is to diminish the forced connections and increase the choice connections. It is meant to free yourself of having to have forced connections, of having to go through situations just to get through. Life will never be simple, but choosing a different perspective to view it in will make it less and less difficult to function. You have the power within to decide what your life will look like, who will be in that life, who you choose to have a relationship or connection with.
The time upon which you find yourself is a time to erase the parameters of possibilities (societal rules, beliefs, and limitations). These are drawn throughout your life and continue to be reinforced. Who draws them and why? The parameters (lines) are drawn using ‘pencils of possibilities’. The pencils can be reporters, politicians, teachers, physicians, parents, or anyone else of authority or influence. A few examples of these parameters of possibilities are that ‘you are not good enough’, ‘if you don’t go to college you will never amount to anything’ or ‘just get a job to get by, your dreams can wait”.
Does the unknown scare you enough that you settle with the life you have instead of moving forward onto the life you desire? Transitions in life are those times on your path when decisions bring more decisions, affecting more decisions and so forth. Surrounding these decisions are emotions of uncertainty. Which choice should I make? Which way should I go? Am I doing the right thing?
At one level, that light shines from the center of your being. So every apparent individual form is shining that same light from its own center. The fun part is at another level, that light shines from no center. It shines for all infinity everywhere. So then there is no fixed point of perception.
Once you have awakened into the experience of consciousness and energy, there are two main practices: One is to rest in the nothingness in every moment. The is to be devoted to the bliss that is here.

It is helpful to recognize that the one infinite consciousness is looking through your eyes; is aware of this moment through and as your form. If you really look, you will see it is not 'your consciousness" that is looking. It is consciousness itself.
