Recommendation – How to read the words in the New Dictionary:
A word is a vessel through which essence, energy passes. The word is never the thing itself.
What is the real “thing”? It is good to answer this question in silence.
Therefore the invitation to this dictionary is “tricky”; it seems like it tries to replace one “definition” with another “definition” but it does not. This dictionary is an opportunity to look at a word from a different perspective than we are used to. And ask what is the essence of this word, coming from the mystery? From nature? From the inconceivable knowing that everything is one, everything is motion and I am a part of it?
From here you will find that the new “definition” sometimes sounds poetic or even irritating to the mind, because it cannot understand it. It’s OK. Let the words be a tool and listen to the energy that passes through them. That’s exactly what we came here to do.
Coming out of the knowing that everything is connected and everything is in motion:
Even according to the new definition, awakening means waking from a state of sleep, but instead of being a sleep that dulled the senses, it was one that created an illusion, a story.
We were not in direct contact with what is happening, with life, and now we are.
Rather than being focused on the content of the thoughts or the effort to replace one thought with another, awakening becomes about knowing that all thoughts are illusions, regardless of whether they positive or negative, and from this place, waking up.
The reality created: Awakening constantly makes me face what is really here – the person in front of me; the situation I am in; the knowledge, wisdom and beauty that come from what is not mediated by the mind and its partial and sometimes distorted ability to see things as they are.
If I can’t find them, I will check whether I was perhaps confused and allowed myself to dive into my thoughts. If I still can’t find them, I will let myself exist in a state of silence, agreeing to feel the pain, despair and helplessness that I will most certainly feel. And from there, exactly where I am, without effort, I will see, listen and move from the natural movement as it is in that exact moment. It is like discovering that I can breathe underwater. It is moving to another dimension.
We got used to thinking that:
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. And if the light within you is darkened, the darkness will be even greater!” Matthew, verse 22
To awaken means leaving a state of rest and inefficiency for one of functionality and added value.
The reality created: An effort or sacrifice is required to move from an undesirable or inefficient situation to one that is desired, valued and wanted. The effort is made despite the gravitational force pulling us to continue sleeping. There is an energy of war, even if it is personal. Effort will win over laziness, light will win over dark, right will win over wrong. I take a side, which leads to separation, effort and conflict,
