The Wisdom of Delusion

When I woke-up, I became the most unconscious, deluded and delusional being in the universe. I also became the most enlightened.

I am the most enlightened being that has ever existed. I am the most deluded being that has ever existed.

This is the space of the awake being. Within awakeness, within consciousness, all polarities arise and fall. When you wake-up, you become the most enlightened being and the most deluded, unconscious being, for there is nothing else.

Most on the spiritual path of awakening assume that with awakening there is a suspension of all negative and delusional qualities, but this is not reality, this is not the universe. The universe is comprised of consciousness and unconsciousness, held within the power and grace of one consciousness. To awaken is to embody these polarities and hold these within one's consciousness.

In the process of awakening, there is the tendency to suppress and deny all that is unconscious, undeveloped, and unaware. In the this, half of the universe is suppressed. You, and the universe, remains divided.

Awakening needs unawakening and consciousness needs unconsciousness.

In your practice and process, seek the unawake within. Practice the delusional and deluded aspects of yourself without denial, without hiding, without posturing, without pretending. In embracing your true nature, both the aware and unaware, you embrace the entire universe. In practicing your delusion, hold your unconsciousness, your selfishness, your lust, your greed, your jealousy, your pain, your fear, your suffering, for these too are perfect consciousness.

Wake-up to your own delusion - be free.
