A Clarity Mind state is where one resides completely and unequivocally in the present moment.
It isn’t really a state but a way of being in presence.
Life flows from moment to moment effortlessly and easily.
In a Clarity Mind state one is able to tap into the infinite part of oneself that simply knows what to do in each moment, without fear, anxiety, or analysis.
You are able to look at all the various potential choices happening in each moment all around you, consider them all, and know exactly how to respond.
You are free from intellectually having to know.
In a Clarity Mind state you are free from limiting beliefs and sub conscious tendencies, and you allow the Universe to freely express itself through you.
You arrive in a Clarity Mind state not intellectually but by embodying or being.
In a Clarity Mind state you are a lover of ‘what is.’
There is Nothing to Do
You can’t plan an inspired life. In the process of conceiving a goal, it becomes impossible to be in the present moment.
One becomes more concerned with the goal rather than the stillness and presence of Clarity Mind.
It seems like some separate “you” needs to do something. In reality, everything happens by itself.
From the point of view of the ego, the idea that everything happens by itself seems preposterous.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said we should not worry over material things, including food, personal appearance and clothing.
“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither do they spin. Andyet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” ~Jesus of Nazareth (Matt.6: 28-30; Luke 12: 27-31)
The lilies do not have a purpose.
They do not try to grow.
They do not try to be beautiful.
This happens by itself.
When you are established in the Clarity Mind State, and you live from this awakened perspective, you actually live the profound truth of these words.
“The grass grows by itself, and the flowers flower.” ~ Zen saying
Who is really doing something?
Since the ego is just an idea, or your idea of who you think you are, an idea can’t do anything.
In reality, the universe as a whole is the only doer. It just looks like there’s a separate you who goes around doing things to and with other separate things.
Without a goal or purpose, you’ll still eat, sleep, and work, or do whatever you usually do.
Things happen, goals are achieved, and you move forward. In Clarity Mind, life flows through you rather than coming from the limited mind.
You don’t have to totally get rid of the idea of a separate self, so much as know that it’s just an idea, a way of thinking. Doing happens in the moment, but without a separate doer.
Your Purpose is Now
From the perspective of the ego, life seems like a problem to be solved. When you are fully established in a Clarity Mind state, there are no doubts and no problems that require a solution.
What we may think of as a purposeful life really has no point. In the hurry to get somewhere, do something, or be something, we end up being on the outside of life, and we miss everything.
When there is no goal, our senses are more open to the wonder of the moment. From that place, you discover that whatever you are doing in the moment is your purpose.
Your purpose is live your life. That’s all.
As Alan Watts once said, “it is traveling without point, with nowhere to go. To travel is to be alive, but to get somewhere is to be dead.” So the journey is really the point of life. The egoic idea that there is something to win, or somewhere to go, some place to arrive at, causes you to miss the journey.
“In this moment there is nothing which comes to be. In this moment there is nothing which ceases to be. Thus there is no birth-and-death to be brought to an end. Wherefore the absolute tranquility of nirvana is this present moment. Though it is at this moment, there is no limit to this moment, and herein is eternal delight.” ~ Sixth Patriarch of Zen
Once established in Clarity Mind you are no longer identified with your egoic mind. You stop identifying with the world of ideas, and live more in the transcendent or a Oneness Reality.
“The kingdom of God cometh not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo
there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20-21)
If you can stay for longer periods in a Clarity Mind state, surrendering to ‘what is’ is very easy.
