What is living, what is relating?
What are you when you have no ambition and no motivation? What are you?
Most would believe that it is somehow a lack of life but it is actually much much more life. Our culture has programmed this. We don’t know what we have not experienced.
What if the ambition and motivation dissolves and whatever action you take is in a context of reciprocity and thus the only source of action, not ambition or motivation?
Expanded consciousness is impersonal is an outcome of relationship, a world without ambition and motivation. A world comes forward of reciprocity of relationship. This is foundational in any real healthy relationship. It is also a spiritual life. No action outside of reciprocity. This expands awareness and consciousness. Openness cannot exist as a concept or extraction. Openness exists in a quiet and relaxed state in the nervous system. it allows one to be relational. if the nervous system is wound tight, there is no relating due to the mind being spun out. the more the consciousness develops the less personal the consciousness is. there is less and less ambition and motivation when the nervous system unwinds. Relating becomes a totally different thing.
If one is mental, this is not allowing real relating. In this state there is only desire, expectations, taking and neediness. Needing to be better, be more, is actually a distraction from what you are. It is parasitic. Vampiric. The modern world works upon this premise.
What would a life be like in this way without living in the mind?
This is the sacred world of real yoga.
Communication is a totally different thing. There is a big focus on effective communication today. This realm is not relationship, It is communication. This is best used in salesmanship technology. It is instrumental. What can I get, what can I give, what can I give to get. Reciprocity has no ambition or motivation. This is relationship or relating.
