Nothing IS Happening & Turning Within… new MJ Awakening Blog
March 26, 2015
Nothing IS happening, i.e., it is appearing to happen. But that is not the same as actually happening, in a solid, permanent kind of way. ALL is an appearance, not an actuality.
P.S. I recently heard Paul Hedderman say on an mp3 of one of his talks that his girlfriend showed him a cartoon that featured two doors. Over the first it said “HEAVEN” and over the second it said “Lecture about HEAVEN,” and all the people were cued up in front of the second door!? 🙂
When it comes to your own awakening, go directly for it. Don’t let talking about it or reading books or watching videos be enough. They can be useful up to a point, but eventually you have to turn within and see it for yourself. See what? That the wholeness you seek is not “out there,” but always available right where you are, here and now… in fact it’s not available anywhere else.
Your true face in the mirror
You will never have a bigger shock then the moment you realize that you have never been anything you have perceived. It is beyond mind blowing… oh, the mind is still there (when it is), but it’s no longer mistaken (mis-taken) for you. You are prior to any thought or appearance. Nisargadatta said, “You are nothing perceivable or conceivable.” However, these are just words until you see it directly, for yourself. It’s an intuitive knowing that comes and goes, until finally it settles. Once this happens it becomes impossible to take yourself as anything.
All that’s ever known are descriptions of form where no form actually exists. These descriptions may be helpful at times, but they’re ultimately meaningless. There can be no true description of anything. -Darryl Bailey
In other words, if EVERYTHING is constantly changing and thus never static (including a sense of you!), what exactly is there to label?
By the time you define it, it’s already not that… ALL definitions are too late!
Thus there can be a letting go of the attempt to define anything, and simply resting in the immediacy of what IS.
