We all have a deep need to know ourselves and be known, to love and be loved. It is one of the deepest roots of our being, one that must be grown and realised.
On the surface, it may be confused with egoic pursuits of recognition, but it is much more profound than that. It is a matter of total resonance, of experiencing oneness.
If you do not meet this need, something will always be amiss and you will always feel unsettled, awry, unrealised.
No outer manifestation will reach into it, it is an inner phenomenon. You reach it by going into yourself and discovering who you are.
When you merge with yourself, the outer responds in celebration. It comes rushing towards you. This is one of the highest forms of realisation.
What is the joy of finding the truth, of realising that you are the truth, without sharing it? What is the meaning of finding the light without bringing it to the world?
What is the use of recognising the universe in yourself without the universe recognising you in return? It is only half the picture.
When you come home, you want to invite everyone, and you want to share it with everything. Your life becomes an endless housewarming party!
When you come home, everything you have thought, theorised, philosophised and prayed about disappears like dust on the wind. You and oneness realise one another and all pursuits of the mind reveal their meaninglessness for a moment before drifting away forever.
There is no God, there is only God, no you, only you. Words evaporate on musical notes of laughter into the eternal.
All of existence, all that is and ever was, congregates in the moment in a white light of pure consciousness.
Recognising yourself turns everything to love.
