Self-Realization

We are awareness.

Whenever there is a presence of awareness, that is self-realization. There are also other terms for it, such as the understanding (that you are awareness itself, and not the thoughts, person, and feelings that you appear to be).

All that is needed for self-realization is the seeing or recognition that awareness is fully present. There is absolutely nothing to get, attain, reach, or move-toward. Further, this understanding is not time-related. Awareness is there for the seeing, at any moment.

Self-reflection is one of the ways of recognizing your natural state. As the words imply, you carefully ponder nondual pointer that you love or have come across; you reflect upon—in a relaxed manner—throughout the day.

Another way is to talk with or read the words of some writer or spiritual teacher with whom you resonate; and please be sure that he or she is actually self-realized. This approach to nonduality is, by far, the best. Questions can be directly posed and answered doubts can be cleared away.

There is no reason not liver a thriving, happy, creative, and self-realized life. Your natural state is directly before and within you. See for yourself the peace that that understanding can bring.

"Fully Present is an elegant addition to the growing literature on nonduality as it is being uncovered, lived and understood in the modern West."

"In Fully Present, Rodney opens his daily life and thoughts to us in these immensely natural and pleasant ramblings of one who is fully engaged in life, love, nonduality, and cinnamon muffins."

—Catherine Ann Jones, award-winning screenwriter, spiritual workshop leader, and author of The Way of the Story: The Craft and Soul of Writing. Her Web site is www.wayofstory.com

Rodney is also the author of A Vastness All Around: Awakening to Your Natural State, a powerful and elegant collection of essays, discussions, interviews, and powerful pointers. It can be ordered directly from the publisher at Lulu Press.

~~~~~

"I like your approach in A Vastness All Around. The stories, thoughts and vignettes of your life seem wonderful ways to make people stop and pay attention to where they actually are right now, rather than in some imagined past or future. They show that you don't have to be some specially qualified person, preferably with a title and a name in Sanskrit, to pursue the spiritual quest. Your message comes across particularly well in such pieces as 'Sheerness of Being.'"

—Valerie J. Roebuck, Ph.D., Honorary Research Fellow, University of Manchester (England)
