Stop identifying with what is endlessly changing and “stay put”… new MJ Awakening Blog

wave

Awakening is NOT making the personality “you” disappear or change. It’s seeing clearly that it’s not inherently You. Is not the “personal you” constantly changing? One moment up, the next down, the next bored, etc.

As soon as you say you are the “up” one, then you are saying you are not the “down” or “bored” one. And as soon as you claim to be the “down” one, then you are saying you are not the “up” or “bored” one. And as soon as you claim to be the “bored” one, you are saying you are not the “up” or “down” one.

The persona/mood of the jiva is always changing. But that which notices ALL changes doesn’t come or go or change. In other words, you begin to be AWARE of the mind, rather then being the mind. You stop identifying with what is endlessly changing and “stay put.”

This takes practice! We have become so habitually conditioned to believe our thoughts, that the idea of “staying put” takes a re-orientation of sorts. Left to its own device, the jiva will go to thoughts because that’s what its been programmed to do. See this, notice this, become aware of it, observe it… as it’s all that’s going on every moment.
