No past… No future… New MJ Awakening Blog

no past no future

As long as I still believe there is a separate somebody, an imaginary “me,” who can become self-realized in a future that never actually arrives, I will continue to suffer.

No past… No future…

All human beings are mummers… New MJ Awakening Blog

there's nothing behind the mask


All human beings are mummers.

Does not the baby mimic the sounds it hears?

Do we not all mimic words from someone else’s language we were taught to mimic?

What do you know that nobody taught you?

For that you cannot use any word.

What is aware of THOUGHT? New MJ Awakening Blog

April 14, 2018 - Leave a Response


As I tune into/feel my mind’s attention, I notice it jumps around like a frog from one water lily to the next, i.e., one thought to the next. Endlessly.
What does this have to do with me? Do I jump around? Have I ever moved? Or is everything else moving but me?

In order for me to truly know you, to be what you always are, I must know/be SILENCE.

In order for you to truly know me, to be what I always am, you must know/be SILENCE.

SILENCE is the bridgeless bridge every moment, regardless of appearances.

SILENCE… where the seemingly infinite is revealed to be ONE.

It’s like you are pure SPACE… New MJ Awakening Blog

April 9, 2018 - Leave a Response


It’s like you are pure SPACE, and all of existence is spontaneously appearing and disappearing within you. Including ALL thoughts, feelings, memories, sensations, your body, other bodies, the sky, the ocean, air, rocks, trees, everything… the SPACE always IS to such an extent that it’s not noticed… until it IS.

“I wish my mind would leave me alone.”

Really? Why don’t you stop pestering the mind? 

Why don’t you leave it alone?

You say you can’t? Who can’t?

When it comes to SILENCE, I sell out too soon. I never get to her deeper secrets because as soon as ANY thought shows up, I forget all about her. ❤

Whenever I am in mental pain, anguish, suffering, story, wishing someone had acted differently, I know I am in mind and not silent PRESENCE.
