Nothing IS Happening & Turning Within… new MJ Awakening Blog
March 26, 2015

Absolutely_nothing

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.

-Michael Jeffreys

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.

The weight of identifying as “self” is like walking around wearing a 90lb backpack THAT YOU ARE NOT EVEN AWARE OF.

“Nothing you perceive has ever been you…” new MJ Awakening Blog

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.

For your consideration: Darryl Bailey awakening quote with MJ Commentary

formless cloud & sun

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.

Tree sparrow, Passer montanus, single bird on branch, Warwickshire, April 2012

A bird sings outside my window… and thought claims to “know” what this is and what it means!?

But thought cannot know anything because thoughts are not conscious.
