When we look at the objects in our lives that we are attached to,  the clutter in physical and emotional form, Naked Awareness puts it all into perspective. It allows another light to shine in our inner world and reflects to the objects around us. We start seeing areas in our home and office that need to be more in balance.  Just like Feng Shui (Wind (unseen) & Water (seen)), past, present and future events flow with us in ebb and flows with seen and unseen events.  Some may say dark times, but the best days of our lives are right around the corner and we realize that those not so light times where what we needed to experience. With the state of Naked Awareness our world looks different. Of course time helps heal, but it’s the little moments we are aware of exactly where we are is where we are supposed to be. To take in those emotional feelings and be in our state, to honor it, and to heal what may not be resonating with us.

Naked Awareness

Now, when you are introduced [to your own intrinsic awareness], the methods for entering into it involves three considerations:

Thoughts in the past are clear and empty and leave no traces behind.

Thoughts in the future are fresh and unconditioned by anything.

And in the present moment, when [your mind] remains in its own condition without constructing anything, awareness at the moment in itself is quite ordinary.

And when you look into yourself in this way nakedly (without any discursive thoughts), since there is only pure observing, there will be found a lucid clarity without anyone being there who is the observer; Only a naked manifest awareness is present. [This awareness] is empty of immaculately pure, not being created by anything whatsoever. It is authentic and unadulterated, without any duality of clarity and emptiness.

-Padmasambhava
