What is HERE NOW that isn’t a creation of the mind?

Belief in the divided ego distracts you from seeing your already present impersonal wholeness
May 26, 2014
When the egoic false mental “I” is dropped, the shining Light of the ONE True impersonal Universal “I” can be experienced in the heart, directly. There is only One SELF and it is not personal and thus WHOLE. And this is true for every being.
It’s the belief in individuality (ego) that creates the painful feeling of separation. Until this dreamed up “false you” is seen through, it will continue to spin its victim stories to get you to buy into them, thus distracting you from seeing your already PRESENT, impersonal, not dependent on anything, silent WHOLENESS.
How can I forget YOU… even for a second!?

Oh Universal Intelligence… the ubiquitous force behind ALL that is… how YOU mesmerize me with your wonderous and mysterious appearances… so much so that I often forget about YOU, the Artist, the Creator, the Master Sculptor, the most Supreme.
I see the bird, but I forget YOU, the bird’s creator. I effortlessly watch and listen as this form, this body, seemly moves, talks and goes about its endless tasks, and yet for YOU I have barely a thought to spare. For YOU, who have freely given me literally everything, I have no time to show my love and gratitude. Please forgive my selfishness Father.

The Stranger’s Voice in Your Head
May 13, 2014
Have you ever asked your internal voice, “Who is Speaking?” And then waited for the answer?
We habitually, automatically, and robotically believe the thoughts in our head without question… yet, have you ever inquired to see WHOSE Voice is actually speaking? Who or what, exactly, is saying all those things in your head virtually 24/7?
If the voice declares, “It’s me, it’s my voice!” don’t fall for it. Saying, “It’s me” doesn’t give you any information. Okay than, who is this “me”??
Few will actually take the time to investigate this deeply, perhaps because knowing unconsciously this would expose the egoic identity for what it is and so, for whatever reason, they prefer, for the time being, to continue on in the dream with “business as usual.” But for those few who feel this burning desire for Freedom, the next time the internal voice speaks, they will ask themselves, “Who is Speaking?” and then sit silently, for as long as it takes, until the answer reveals itself from within.

While ego takes credit for everything, what made it? What gives it power to exist? What made the earth? The stars? The sun? Your body? Your mind? Your desires? All these things must be summarily ignored for the ego to carry on as “business as usual.”
However, the Light of your Soul, the unchanging Truth of your Being can only be ignored for so long. As the false drops away, the True becomes more and more obvious. Perhaps you have already had glimpses of this Light, of this Silent Knowing Presence, but still feel fear… that too is the ego trying to “dictate” your response. For fear 100% is the domain of ego, not God.
The solution? Surrender your entire will to the Father… “not my will, but thy will be done”… for the Divine cannot refuse a sincere and humble heart… and then keep quiet. Rest in the eternal Silence of your Being.
