Advanced Essence: The Citadel
The more we learn to bring attention and awareness to our daily functioning, the more we can experience ourselves grounded and centered, flowing with reality rather than in conflict with it. Instead of trying to impose our will to life we are filled with a sense of stability, harmony and alignment. We feel solid, absolutely present and protected, protected by the natural unfolding of Essential Nature in accordance to the need of the moment. This process of integration and support manifests through and is facilitated by an essential vehicle called the Citadel, a solid presence that upholds and defends Truth and supports the evolution of the Authentic Self.
The Citadel is a specific dimension of Essential Will that, defending and protecting concretely through actions and behavior our True Nature, makes it possible for us to realize little by little that we do not need anymore the egoic defenses; that we don’t need to defend the false personality and that we can let go of the mask we have been wearing most of our life. We also learn to appreciate discipline; not the one imposed upon us by society and dogmas, but rather one that springs from our love for the Truth and our Essential Nature. We become disciplined - disciples of Being - and we find specific and unique ways to live and practice Truth.
To activate this vehicle we explore all areas of our life and we inquiry if and how they reflect the Truth and our deepest understanding. This process brings clarity, integrity and self-respect.
