This was written in response to a question a person asked via email:  What do you mean by ‘Unfolding to yourSelf”?
Unfolding to yourSelf.
Awareness is always expanding and exposing itSelf to itSelf… Consciousness is revealing itSelf to itSelf in each moment.  That is the happening called life.  So as you expand, more of you will be revealed – expansion is happening with all that is at play here in each moment, it is not something that you ‘do’ AND you can go along with it… I call this the unfolding of yourself to yourself.  You, as Awareness, expand (unfold so to speak) revealing more of what is – both as a person inclusive of all held energies (gifts that you get to receive consciously as they release), as well as the energetics of what appears here as a ‘you’.

This Satsang Invitation invites you to look at what you are responsible for in this moment to moment play of love that you are.

So many of us were taught that we were responsible for our parents’ happiness – if we would just be a certain way, we would make our parents happy. This, of course, automatically includes that we were also responsible for their unhappiness too – when they were upset or angry, it was our fault.

Many people were hit or yelled at and told that the hitting and yelling was their own fault because of how they were – if they had been different, they wouldn’t have been hit or yelled at.

This treatment inevitably lead us to attempt to be different, to please our moms and dads to to try to make them happy because, we cared about them and truly wished them happy. Also, for those who were hit physically or with words (or any abusive behaviour), there was wanting the pain to stop….the learning was to keep trying to understand how it is we were supposed to be, obviously different than how we were, since that was painful. This never ending goal of attempting to give others happiness and blaming ourselves for their unhappiness may have become an unconscious habit.

We cannot make another person happy or unhappy.
We can be with the person, staying close, but they are the only ones who can allow their own happiness. Their lives are ‘their lives’, the moments as they play out have been given to them, not you. All we can do is support them to be responsible for themselves. The main way to support them to that? To be responsible for yourself, to model that.

In the moment that you might find yourself struggling to give someone happiness, in that very moment, stop, breathe and feel the struggle. Right in that moment, there will be some energy at play within the play of you, this human being. Open up to feeling ‘struggle’ happening, or ‘trying’ happening. Bit by bit, instead of continuing to struggle, instead of continuing to try, stop and feel that part of you that is engaged, is attached to an outcome or goal beyond the moment that you are in.

Feel the energy, Be With That as it plays out, and this releases the attachment as a side effect. Opening to the real energy at play in the moment and feeling that, stops the habitual play of the details that have taken you along for a ride so many times. Stop the habit, just stop in the midst of the happening, open yourself and feel the energy at play.

Even our own happiness comes and goes just like all details at play in each moment. Recognition of love, as it comes, in its multitude of appearances, is the only route to happiness that fills not only the person, but the whole of What Is. To recognize love softens oneSelf, stops the fighting, the trying, and there is a relaxing open to That.

The only responsibility in being here – in this moment to moment play called life – is to be able to respond. And that is already happening, is totally available, and all are able to respond to what is. Reacting is the struggle and in your own honesty with yourself you will know if you are reacting rather than responding if there is any energy disturbed alive in the moment.

In this way, struggle becomes a support to us, Love’s way of pointing out where held energy, or attachment is happening, so we can open to that and receive the gift, as it comes in the very moment of the unfolding of the energy. Check it out for yourself, you are invited!

Satsang Invitation
Your feedback and responses are welcome!

Today’s Satsang Invitation invites you to be newly with yourSelf – Newly You. The fact that you are new in each moment, just like a snowflake, doesnt matter much as that is how it has been and always will be. What does matter is whether you recognize this newness…in you, with you, all around this appearance as it is – this universe.

Since all is a play of energy, it is always moving, vibrating fast enough to make an appearance of solidness, as if you are solid. It’s this rapid movement of the atoms that creates this appearance. So we know that what we perceive is not solid but only appears this way in each moment.

In this constant movement, nothing remains the same…the hair is growing, or there are flakes of skin that are drying and being replaced by new skin in the case of baldness (how inclusive hey?!…lol…) the food is digesting, the blood is moving through out the system carrying the nutrients from the food. The whole mechanism is meeting each moment with the meeting of these atoms as they journey along, the domino effect, one bit changing the next bit, flowing. What a play…Awareness at play, with all of this. Where does it begin? Where does it end? It keeps on playing.

It is true that this is only a wee bit of the vastness at play that I am pointing to: hair growing, skin renewing, nutrients being received, and disbursed…change is happening. When looking at this small bit of the play, is it easier to see (when looked at as a flowing of energies) that it all moves together? That there is no separation within the play of it all?

You are new in each moment, and then new again in the next moment. Understanding that you cannot be stagnant, that even though there might be plays of Awareness (plays of Love in expression) that are uncomfortable, that it will change. Even though aspects of what appears here seem to be the same, they are not…look again, look for the newness. This can support a wonderful freedom as who could know how you are supposed to be?…You are new! Any idea of how you are life is supposed to be can be dropped…what a freedom.

Allow yourself more space for this newness of you, the newness of your heart and what That speaks to you, the newness of perception – how you perceive is also changing even though it may appear to not be. This is the same for everyone, so no need to stand by any judgements of yourself or others as if they will not change. You remembering the fact that change is happening, supports letting go of any judgement, gives more space, and therefore supports the flow of What Is…flow happens more easily, and because you are not separate (‘you’ are part of this flow) you feel more at ease too.

When you have felt stuck or trapped in some scenario, the reality is that there is newness that is happening. As soon as you look for this newness, this gives space for more newness, more space for you to relax with the flow of All.

Relax open and enjoy this new you, get to know yourself as the newness of That and this space will support expansion in all directions – without a push to change, change happens naturally with ease when you give yourself space and respond newly, freshly however you do. Start new again and again…as you are…go with That. Out of nothing this you continues to play here, this way and that way, however that is…it is a new play of you, a new play of Love.

Well, after publishing that last post here on this blog last week and having quite a number of views of it, I am feeling very appreciative of this system of sharing….in the real felt sense of gratitude!  Thank you to you readers of these words…it’s just nice to be received.

And, yes, of course I am received…in each moment, each of what appears here as ‘us’ is being received by our very own Selves.  Ourselves as Awareness is right here receiving the experiencing that is happening.  It’s just sort of sweet to see actual views of this blog – that it is being viewed!  So I include this felt sense of gratitude, which gives rise to yet more gratitude, that you are here, With mySelf…thank you!!  ❤ Canela Michelle
