The Slightest Push

An awakening can be compared to a ball on a hill, nothing more is needed than the slightest push to get it rolling, and it will just keep on building momentum until something gets in the way to stop it…

Once a ball is placed at the top of a hill and it’s given the slightest push it naturally begins rolling in the only direction it can go, and its momentum builds without one ounce of effort. It does take a little effort in the beginning to get it going, but not much more than a slight push. It’s this way when one wakes up from the sleep of unconsciousness, there’s not much that needs to be done to expand, as a matter of fact most people don’t wake up fully because of trying to hard. If you are awake the push has already occurred, so all effort is now futile. So many books, programs, videos, and whatnot and although they make you knowledgeable, none of it makes you anymore awake than the slightest push.

This is one of the reasons I emphasis using the body as an anchor in the awakening process, because it doesn’t take effort, it only takes being with what is actually here, which is the present moment. All kinds of stories can be made up about what needs to be done, but none of it expands you more than the first push. Either you are awake in the quietness of the present moment or you are asleep in the noise of everywhere else. The first push reveals this truth and as with the ball, nothing else is needed than the slightest push to get it rolling, and it will just keep on building momentum that is until something gets in the way to stop it…
