Seven Steps toward Exalted Impeccability

Tuesday, 22 July 2014 0 comments

“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt” –Immanuel Kant

Here are seven hang-ups in particular to let go of in order to attain a state of sublime impeccability.

Impeccability

1. Let go of Fear

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” –Plato

The ability to recognize fear is an essential aspect of our survival, but when the ego becomes attached to fear it can become an obstruction to survival. Fear becomes our puppeteer, and we become its floundering puppets. This type of fear is almost always preconditioned. Letting go of it is tantamount to letting go of our first layer of skin, a difficult task indeed. Gain the courage of the Snake, who regularly sheds its skin.

2. Let go of Guilt

The spiritual perception of reality is about responsibility. We’re all responsible. We’re not guilty, we’re responsible. And it’s trying to make our way through these two perceptions of reality that seems to be the biggest problem we’re confronted with as human beings on the planet right now.” –John Trudell.

3. Let go of Shame

“There can be no transformation in the world outside unless there is transformation from within. It is our responsibility to bring about a radical transformation within ourselves.” –Krishnamurti

4. Let go of Grief

Let go of heartache. Release all sadness and loss. Let the pain flow away. Love has a pain center. Letting go of grief is letting go of our ego’s attachment to love which is embracing the pain center. Learning how to love is learning how to let go of the ego’s attachment to love. This is the secret of attaining happiness in a cruel world. There is sublimity in such seemingly contradictory practices.

5. Let go of Lies

“The mental suffering you create is always some form of non-acceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. The intensity of the suffering depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment.” –Eckhart Tolle

6. Let go of Illusion

Let go of all false destinies. Recognize your ego’s attempt to separate things. The illusion of separation is the greatest illusion of all. But, and here’s the rub, the illusion of separation is what makes everything beautiful and meaningful. Open your third eye and see the interconnectedness of all things, but appreciate the beauty in the differentiated unity.

7. Let go of Earthly Attachment

“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” –Alan Watts

Let go of definitions. Let go of hunger. Let go of happiness. Let go of love. Let go of letting go. The art of letting go is realizing that everything is everything and even letting go is itself an illusion. Remember: you are not letting go of love itself, only your ego’s attachment to love. Love is always there, and always will be. You are not letting go of happiness itself, you are letting go of your ego’s attachment to happiness. Happiness is always there, and always will be. The same goes for all things.
