Concluded from Part 2
I reached a point of inner conflict when I learned about zero point. If it’s really the one true answer, then why do I enjoy this physical reality so much?
Why am I so interested in the ancient and recent history of the place I live if at the end of the day, nothingness is the only thing that leads us to an undistorted spiritual perception? Why do I enjoy going out to nature and generally experiencing this otherwise dense and difficult reality?
Then, amidst my research, I found a quote from Adyashanti that I just have to share. Zero point enthusiasts, listen up!
“Many spiritual seekers get ‘stuck’ in emptiness, in the absolute, in transcendence. They cling to bliss, or peace, or indifference. When the self-centered motivation for living disappears, many seekers become indifferent. They see the perfection of all existence and find no reason for doing anything, including caring for themselves or others.
I call this ‘taking a false refuge.’ It is a very subtle egoic trap; it’s a fixation in the absolute and all unconscious form of attachment that masquerades as liberation. It can be very difficult to wake someone up from this deceptive fixation because they literally have no motivation to let go of it. Stuck in a form of divine indifference, such people believe they have reached the top of the mountain when actually they are hiding out halfway up its slope.” (1)
We’re then told that practicing zero point doesn’t have to entail inaction or disappearance from this reality.
“Enlightenment does not mean one should disappear into the realm of transcendence. To be fixated in the absolute is simply the polar opposite of being fixated in the relative. With the dawning of true enlightenment, there is a tremendous birthing of impersonal Love and wisdom that never fixates in any realm of experience.
To awaken to the absolute view is profound and transformative, but to awaken from all fixed points of view is the birth of true nonduality. If emptiness cannot dance, it is not true Emptiness. If moonlight does not flood the empty night sky and reflect in every drop of water, on every blade of grass, then you are only looking at your own empty dream. I say, Wake up! Then, your heart will be flooded with a Love that you cannot contain.” (1)
Now, it’s all become clear. We can live in this world, and even be of it (and we should certainly enjoy it) but when it comes to seeking spirit, absolute nothingness leads to absolute allness. If enlightenment is our goal, then zero point really is the answer.
However, it’s important for us not to “disappear into the realm of transcendence” as Adyashanti advised, one of the reasons being that we have a sacred mission here. Not to mention that we actually trap ourselves in a mental perception of nothingness by striving not to strive.
I recognize that sometimes, I’m not going to feel inspired to write.
Despite how badly I want to keep moving, sometimes entering into stillness (and the realms beyond) is all that’s required. Based on the meditations I’ve had so far, I can say that stillness and erasing the perception of the human self will deliver us from lower-dimensionality in a surprising and perhaps overwhelming way.
This is where I’m at as I write this on Saturday, January 4. I’m actually a bit anxious now, because I know that I’ve unlocked a great and potent truth and can, at any time, sit down and reenter heaven. It’s a huge personal responsibility, and at the same time, it’s all I’ve (and we’ve) ever wanted.
Since we can consciously re-access heaven by embracing zero point without alienating ourselves from this reality and everything that breeds joy and happiness, we’ve already made it and we just don’t realize it.
If I can quote reggae artist Matisyahu, “you’re already there, then there’s nowhere to go. If your cup’s already full, then it’s bound to overflow”. (2)
Right now, all forms of seeking and striving seem unnecessary, but again, we’re meant to do the things that inspire us the most. We can “hack” our reality if you will and sit and observe the land of milk and honey from a purely blank perspective, and in doing so, I imagine we’ll raise the planetary consciousness and start spiritually repairing this world.
As always, you’re encouraged to seek spirit in your own way and take everything you read with a grain of salt. I’m at peace after writing all of this out, and I’m ready to go with the flow in an enthusiastic manner and reach a higher vibration in a new and unprecedented way.
