Getting Back That Childhood Spark to Life -- A Recent Discovery

GETTING BACK THAT CHILDLIKE SPARK TO LIFE 

When you stop trying to control and just let reality play itself out with full acceptance and surrender -- that's what makes every moment seem to have that spark that it did when you were a child.  You gotta stop forcing yourself to do anything though.  That's the caveat.  Just rest as awareness and let reality do whatever it wants to.  Most of you don't have the luxury of doing this, but if you ever can, it's really great.  Just let go.  Just let go.  Just rest as being, as awareness, as Brahman.  No trying to control, no clinging to impermanent things.  Just resting as awareness.  Let go.  This should feel kinda scary, but you gotta just keep on with it.  What happens after you do this is so magical you'll be amazed.  It all moves without you!  How fascinating!  Right?  Everything is magical!  Reality is much more than you, or the Ego.  The Ego is just a belief-story about Reality that is very limited and false.  Reality laughs at stories.  Stories exist within reality.  Reality is the big kahuna -- it's always there, we just choose to cling to false beliefs about it.

  • Detach from all impermanent things.  Rest as the unchanging Self.  Bask in the magic of reality.
  • Be the person who has seen too much to believe too much.  Don't get caught up in the trappings of culture, the trappings of beliefs.
  • Nature needs to save you from culture.  You probably currently believe that culture needs to save you from nature.  That's backwards.

everyone has subconscious longing to comeback to childhood

everyone has subconscious longing to go to heaven

everyone has subconscious longing to arrive to utopian future

everyone has subconscious longing for golden ages of the past

If I let go will I pee my pants? If I let go how will I get up and move around to live in this world?

To much surprise when letting go I am supported more immensely. It all just happens on its own accord without any thought of doership.

I notice when i took this advice (and maybe misunderstood it), because i have the privilege, I literally did jack shit. 

I felt horrible but just used the mantra as let go to settle  in my complacency. i recommend people to apply this wisdom...well wisely.

Use it for good as leo recommends not for hedonistic living. cause the result of that is just tempered suffering

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.

Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
