The Mystical Sky by Katie Davis, Author, "Awake Joy"

Can you sense the Changless as the white clouds drift across the pale blue sky?

This morning, do you hear the inaudible Silence of the red-breasted cardinal, while its song is outpouring?

Are you aware of the unfathomable Perfection of the radiant colors of the rainbow?

Is not the Infinity of space truly awe-inspiring as the stars twinkle in the midnight sky?

Do you feel the Harmony within as the sun sets over the Pacific or the Mystery of the full moon over the island of Lanai?

Are you distinguishing the Stillness, when a blue-tipped butterfly suspends in imperceptible space?

Well, close your eyes for a moment. Yes, there are many thoughts and corresponding feelings. Do you notice that they are all either about or in relationship with "you?"

Have you discovered yet the blissful joy beneath happy and sad, when you stop talking story?

Now, just rest as "I am" and stop at that ... nothing more.

Still with eyes closed, back away a little. Are you missing the space around "I," the sublime sky of being?

Are you able to discern that this sky is still within the field of experience? Are you any less, if you resonate solely as "am," this beautiful feeling of connectivity?

Ever more subtle, perhaps still unnoticed, does any reference point whatsoever remain? Not a personal reference point of course, but any?

Is there anything deeper than even the slightest movement ... or stillness ... of inner experience?

Upon Self-discovery, open your eyes! Let it all settle in, so to speak.

Can you be fully in this world, while not being of it?

Is there any difference between That which is within and That which appears to be manifesting everywhere?

Are you fully integrated and embodied as the non-dual Heart of Pure Beingness?

As True Sky, are you experiencing the sky, the cardinal, the starlit night, the rainbow, the sunset and moonrise as the purest joy of True You?

Hey Katie,

This is a very wonderful post. I look within and become aware of the witness. Things are still and quiet. I look for who is aware of the witness. Nothing. I look for who is aware of the nothing. Nothing. Peaceful. Still. It seems like I just need to go deeper and deeper, continuing to ask who is aware of the nothing, over and over again, until at some point realization "happens." Am I on the right track here?

Beloved Trey ~

I already posted at Friends of the Heart Group. Yet, this comment is so beautiful!

You wrote, "I look within and become aware of the witness.

Not quite. Right now, your reference point IS the witness. So you look within as the witness of "nothing."

You are witnessing the Pure Awareness that the witness genuinely is in an objective manner.

That perception of an object points to the fact that what is looking is a subject ... the subject-witness.

That witness is what will be surrendered. It is the SUBJECT that maintains the separation between who you are and its object.

No subject ... no object. The two dissolve as the Pure Awareness that you are.

What I am sharing is that you are breathlessly close.

That "nothing" only appears as "nothing" because the witness is still within the mind. It is the final falling away of all objectivity.

If you want to investigate, investigate what nothingness is. How does it feel to be nothing? Is there the courage to try that on?

It is true that it is no-thing and it is not some-thing. It is the pure and infinite possibility of all that is.

You are definitely on the right track. Remember, you are already This.

Yes, it "happens" on its own accord.

Be still. "You" are caught! Only that which is permanent can realize permanence.

I am going to write to you on email on FB.

You do not have to go "deeper." You are already deepest. Be still and like one huge magnet ... the witness is drawn home to the Heart.

Yes, inquiry as I presented it in the Friends of the Heart Group to you is still appropriate.

This is such good news. :))))

All Love ~ Katie
