“Whatevers aware here/now/always doesn’t have a story. Stories are for a “me” so it can make progress in time. But what you are are is timeless, so no story applies to you. And so stories are just stories. Nothing more.”

Neither Close nor Far, neither Alive nor Dead… New MJ Awakening Blog

October 18, 2020 - Leave a Response

Neither thought nor unthought.

Neither felt nor unfelt.

Neither sensed nor unsensed.

Neither imagined nor unimagined.

Neither close nor far.

Neither up nor down.

Neither alive nor dead.

Everything is IT/*WHO is looking? New MJ Awakening Blog

October 17, 2020 - Leave a Response

WHOLENESS HIDING AS EVERYTHING

Depression is just as much IT as Joy.

Confusion is just as much IT as clarity.

Sadness is just as much IT as happiness.

Whatever’s presently arising is IT because there’s only ever been IT.

But not for the illusory me, which seems to have a “mind of its own.”

And yet, when you look for the “me” can you actually find it?

Indeed, when you look for the “mind” can you actually find it?

Q: *WHO is looking?

(*Don’t assume you know. Sit with this.)

Michael Jeffreys “What is the best way to stop seeking?” 10-14-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

  1. The story that a thought contains isn’t true. It’s just a story. It’s a narrative. And so the confusion is when we start to believe the story. And we’re lost in story and then we miss the moment. Just THIS… however it’s showing up. And that includes all of it, and that’s what the me can’t handle.
  2. The moment is as it is doesn’t leave time for doing. The moment’s here! Here it is. Now, there’s no opening where you can crawl inside the moment and then do stuff, right? But we think we can. That doership, the me, the seeker that’s constantly trying to make this moment correct… feel that!
  3. There’s no salvation for the me.
  4. You have to notice that all the seeker can do is seek because it’s seeking energy. It’s NEVER going to find.

WHAT IS DUALITY? WHATEVER’S APPEARING

  1. Duality is THIS, the appearance. And the appearance is dualistic, meaning whatever you can find in this “world,” in the appearance, it has an opposite that you cannot get rid of. So, “I just want money, BUT I don’t want to lose any money,” says the me. I just want good health, but I don’t want illness. I just want life, but no death.

WHY THE DREAM CAN NEVER COMPLETELY SATISFY/FULFILL

  1. Do you see the impossibility of the seeker’s dilemma? It’s looking for ONLY good, ONLY wholeness, ONLY security, ONLY safety in something that is inherently both positive AND negative, both good AND bad. You can’t get one end of the stick without getting the other. So do you see the dilemma for the me? It’s only looking for the positive and then it wants it to stay that way!
  2. Just THIS, exactly as it’s appearing.
  3. Actual separation is impossible. As if Wholeness could really be divided. But Wholeness is so free it can dream of limitation. You’re Wholeness dreaming of separation.

“There’s nothing more pleasurable than knowing who you are. Therefore, desires are second best.” -Diane Martin

WHY SEEKING DOESN’T WORK

  1. So that’s why seeking doesn’t work. Seeking takes you away from THIS moment. Because “it’s” saying, “THIS is NOT enough!”

But what if we drop all our ideas of what enough looks like?

  1. Everything means something to the me because it takes the world as real. And because it takes the world as real, it’s constantly living in fear that something bad will happen to it.

MICHAEL: Wholeness is already the case. So getting cancer or not getting cancer has nothing to do with Wholeness.

STEPHAN: Yes, absolutely… yes.

JOYCE: You mentioned earlier that the me is only seeking for positive experiences. Is that because the me’s job is just to keep seeking? And it’s seeking for what’s impossible so it can keep seeking?

MICHAEL: Yes!

JOYCE: Because that’s it’s job.

MICHAEL: Yes!! Perfect. That’s it. The futility of seeking has to hit you. That this thing seeking is just this energy that will continue to seek because that’s what it does. But it’s not you.

And since you’re ALREADY Wholeness, there’s not a damn thing you can do to become whole. That has to hit you. So it doesn’t matter what you do. It doesn’t matter if a desire gets fulfilled or not. Yes, it’s nice if it does, but it makes no difference to Wholeness/All that IS.

BRITTNEY: I’m so focused on form that I’m not able to see the formlessness that’s within all the bodies…”

MICHAEL: Yeah, well what do you think is seeing the form? It’s a wordless recognition.

Q: What is the best way to stop seeking? New MJ Awakening Blog

October 13, 2020 - Leave a Response

TOM: What is the best way to stop seeking?

MICHAEL: Take a private with Michael. Just kidding. 🙂

It has to hit you that seeking never pans out. Why? Because seeking is in time, and what you are is not. The characters “Tom” and “Michael” are in time, but not what can’t be spoken, the Timeless… “Me” takes itself to be real and so it needs the world to be real so it can get what it wants. But everything is real AND unreal, like a dream. This is what the me has to ignore so it can seek.

So me lives in thought, in the story, in what’s not real. While what’s real is ever-present, but missed because we’re busy attending to the content of thought, i.e., in what’s not happening as Paul Hedderman says.

But once you deeply intuitively realize you’re ALREADY what you seek and have always been!! (which you didn’t realize due to conditioning/identifying as a me, i.e., ignorance), then seeking no longer makes any sense, i.e., it no longer computes. Because THIS is all there ever IS. Thus, seeking stops when it’s seen there is no one there to seek. There’s simply whatever is happening… for no one.

Michael Jeffreys “Life is doing everything… that’s the simple message of Satsang.” 10-7-20 Satsang video

October 8, 2020 - Leave a Response

SATSANG NOTES

1) “So THIS is IT! Just THIS. All sounds, sensations, feelings, thoughts… whatever’s happening, whatever’s arising right now. This is it. This is what’s longed for, this is what’s looked for, but it’s not seen by the me. This moment is not seen as Wholeness… in fact just the opposite. To the me, this moment is seen as insufficient.”

2) “So you can see the different starting position: The me says, ‘I’m not whole, so I’m seeking it.’ Satsang is saying, ‘There’s ONLY Wholeness.’ There’s only Wholeness disguised as whatever’s appearing. So you can see those are two completely different… you couldn’t get more 180. One is starting from lack and hopes to achieve wholeness. The other is starting from Wholeness and staying there, because that’s all there is! But not in story. If you go to mind, if you go to thoughts… you can always find a problem in thought.”

3) “There’s no past, there’s no future, and there’s not even really a now. All there ever IS is what’s happening.”

4) “Even the me is not personal. How would you create a me? How would you do that?”

5) “You’re not actually going anywhere. You’re not moving. What you are never moves. You’re watching the body. The body is moving. You’re not in time. You’re the Timeless. Everything else happens in time. So that’s why you’ve not been able to find what you’re looking for… because you’re looking in time and you’re Timeless.”

6) “See that… See that you’re already whole, right now. Right now you’re already whole. And the thoughts are going to be as they are. And they don’t have to change. If you’re already whole, why do your thoughts need to change?”

7) “So if an uncomfortable feeling arises, that’s just what’s happening. But it doesn’t MEAN anything. There IS nothing personal. That really is the message. Even death is not personal. Because everything dies. But the me will take it personally.”

8) “Life is doing everything… that’s the simple message of Satsang.”

Even puppy knows Wholeness isn’t a doing. 🙂

3 from yesterday’s Zoom private:

“Try to suffer without a story.”

“There’s ONLY Wholeness… and every story is about trying to GET Wholeness!?”

“It doesn’t matter what you do… Wholeness is already the case.”

-Michael

p.s.

“The whole message is THIS is already what’s longed for.
Unspeakably, unknowably. How could that be a process?”

Michael Jeffreys “If this is already Wholeness, how come I don’t feel Whole?” 9-30-20 Satsang

Why does “me” feel separate from Life? Because it imagines it has a life. So there’s a me AND Life, two. But Life is not divided, not two. Life is nondual/whole. Thus there is no you to “have” a Life and there never has been. There’s just Life; Everything and Nothing, however it’s spontaneously appearing… for no one.
