Realization

 

Realization is a life journey

Self realization is not an attainment or an accomplishment, but a removal of inner obstacles to reveal one’s conscious nature.
 
 
 
The Seer location is used to untangle and withdraw identity from one’s parts, to de-construct false knowledge that corrupts perception, and to break emotional attachment and mental clinging. The process takes on a life of its own; once begun it seems to ensue whether it is enjoyable or not, and often it is not. The body’s energy system becomes enlivened, which has the effect of bringing to the surface unresolved issues and buried trauma, and of driving out the above mentioned false knowledge that has gathered over a lifetime. False knowledge can be briefly described as belief, illusion, ‘shoulds’, and fantasy. Through the realization process, the human system undergoes a kind of ‘factory reset’; inner space is unburdened and erased of the past, and consciousness is liberated.
 
 
 
There may be no end…
 
 
 
After 6 years of this process however I can acknowledge real inner peace, deeply awakened nature, and clear perception – which makes a good view of the human condition and how we can delude ourselves. I also experience almost total acceptance of all being presently as it is (including desires), and an intensely sensitive bio-energetic system that can resonate in connection with the things in my environment. I ‘ultimately’* know just this present moment (time being a useful construct for making plans) and my own fleeting perceptions within it. All is transient, including the self… it’s all information and experience being lived and passing in perception.
 
 
 
*We must eventually come to the vulnerable acknowledgement of our inability to have any ultimate knowledge, we only ever know our changeable human perspectives, and should wonder if even they can be trusted.

“I treasure my time with Toby. The focus is consciousness, and the simplicity and lack of artifice that he brings to each session are of pure presence. His insights are clear and potent. He doesn’t pull punches with what he sees as false, yet the effect is a more warm embrace of what’s true. His support and guidance have been invaluable to me.”
