What I actually AM, and have always been, has no need of anything. New MJ Awakening Blog
April 28, 2018

Salvation is the mind’s idea of the journey to self-realization based on the belief that I am broken/incomplete as I am and need saving.

But can I actually find this broken/incomplete entity that needs saving? Or has it always been an imagining that was innocently being believed, but was never true. That what I actually AM, and have always been, has no need of anything.

Is that one, this imagined persona/character/idea of a separate entity actually, literally, ME?? New MJ Awakening Blog

The question is not whether or not my character/action figure/persona/sense-of-me has ups and downs throughout its day. Of course it does.

All “human beings” experience the + and – of duality. There is no escaping this. The ocean can be calm one moment and stormy the next… and it doesn’t require “a reason” to change!

So, the only question, ever, is:

Is that one, this imagined persona/character/idea of a separate entity actually, literally, ME??

Or, am I always, come what may, the observer of that one?

This is what must be looked into deeply in one’s own Heart.

No past… No future… New MJ Awakening Blog
April 24, 2018

no past no future

As long as I still believe there is a separate somebody, an imaginary “me,” who can become self-realized in a future that never actually arrives, I will continue to suffer.

No past… No future…

All human beings are mummers… New MJ Awakening Blog
April 19, 2018

there's nothing behind the mask

 

All human beings are mummers.

Does not the baby mimic the sounds it hears?

Do we not all mimic words from someone else’s language we were taught to mimic?

What do you know that nobody taught you?

For that you cannot use any word.

What is aware of THOUGHT? New MJ Awakening Blog
April 14, 2018

Just-Float1

As I tune into/feel my mind’s attention, I notice it jumps around like a frog from one water lily to the next, i.e., one thought to the next. Endlessly.
 
What does this have to do with me? Do I jump around? Have I ever moved? Or is everything else moving but me?

In order for me to truly know you, to be what you always are, I must know/be SILENCE.

In order for you to truly know me, to be what I always am, you must know/be SILENCE.

SILENCE is the bridgeless bridge every moment, regardless of appearances.

SILENCE… where the seemingly infinite is revealed to be ONE.

It’s like you are pure SPACE… New MJ Awakening Blog

It’s like you are pure SPACE, and all of existence is spontaneously appearing and disappearing within you. Including ALL thoughts, feelings, memories, sensations, your body, other bodies, the sky, the ocean, air, rocks, trees, everything… the SPACE always IS to such an extent that it’s not noticed… until it IS.

“I wish my mind would leave me alone.” New MJ Awakening Blog

“I wish my mind would leave me alone.”

Really? Why don’t you stop pestering the mind? 

Why don’t you leave it alone?

You say you can’t? Who can’t?

When it comes to SILENCE, I sell out too soon. New MJ Awakening Blog

silence

When it comes to SILENCE, I sell out too soon. I never get to her deeper secrets because as soon as ANY thought shows up, I forget all about her. ❤
