EVERYTHING is God, which leaves nothing out, including You. Seeing/realizing this is the end of the notion of separation.

SEPARATION is an idea that when believed in/identified with automatically brings suffering. Why? Because while on the surface things may appear to be “different,” in Reality nothing is separate from ALL that IS.

“Every effect is the cause, as THAT.” -Swami Chinmayananda

This is why talking about or “believing” in Oneness doesn’t work. Because an intellectual understanding doesn’t go deep enough, is not potent enough, doesn’t have enough juice to “do the business.” You have to see/realize it with every cell of your being. It’s deeper than thought… it’s a direct “knowing.”

When this happens, a release or feeling of relaxation can happen resulting in an experience of “traveling lighter,” as Paul Hedderman says.

More Real Than Anything Else… new MJ Awakening Blog

One way to speak of awakening is the spontaneous realization that you were suffering from a severe case of “mistaken identity.” To wit, because you identified with/as the false, you didn’t realize you have been the Real all along!

You have never come or gone… you simply are. That which you identified with, that which comes and goes, no longer feels like you. It feels like a story or a costume or role, but never you. A hallucination, a life long assumption, that felt very real is suddenly seen through.

When this “release” happens, you physically feel lighter, freer, more expansive, more loving and more compassionate. You recognize your true nature to be something that has always been right here, looking out your eyes, for every moment of your existence.

In other words, it suddenly dawns on You that You are Reality, You are God, You are Universal Consciousness, You are alive Awareness, You are pure Being, You are Truth itself. And you deeply get this, not as a word or concept or intellectual understanding, but as a stone cold fact! More real than anything else.

God is NOT in heaven. God is what’s looking out your eyes… new MJ Awakening Blog

God is NOT in the sky/heaven or in some mystical place or other dimension that we can’t know or in some book or video. Where is God then? What we refer to as “God” is literally what’s looking out your eyes right now!! LITERALLY.

The mind cannot see this, but it can be intuited/realized in your own direct experience. And when you see this for yourself, when it dawns on you that what I am saying is 100% true and indeed the case, you may find yourself laughing/smiling and feeling at peace for no particular reason!

You simply and deeply realize (honestly, for the first time in your life!) that the Truth, Source, God, etc. is what You are and have been all along! That’s the Cosmic joke! There is nothing to get because You are ALREADY THAT which you have been seeking. You are already home because you have never gone anywhere.

Q: What’s the purpose of silencing the mind in spiritual practice?…new MJ Awakening Blog

silence

 

The point of silencing the mind is so you can access a deeper knowing. It’s always here, but as long your attention is on ego and its chattering away about its endless schemes, desires, worries and concerns, the deeper wisdom within you remains obscured.

In other words, when the “me” is there, God, Source, Universal Intelligence, etc. isn’t noticed. When “me” is not there, guess what is left? That’s right, the Truth that was not seen because our attention was on the false.
