Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. New MJ Awakening Blog
November 28, 2018

It’s not that there has ever been a separate, solid “you.” It’s that the same thoughts have been IDENTIFIED WITH repetitively for many years/decades by the impersonal light of ever-present formless Consciousness.
 
Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. Feelings, yes. Thoughts, yes. Sensations, yes. But an actual separate entity, no.
 
Thus, any rejection of anything that arises is to fight oneself. A self that doesn’t exist. Being is being with whatever arises without judgment.
 
Can you imagine if a tree believed the thought, “I like my leaves, but my bark is so ugly!” The tree would be rejecting a part of it self out of sheer ignorance. However, trees don’t do this. Just humans.

In this moment, from where AM I listening, seeing, feeling from? Emptiness or thought? Past or not knowing anything? Stillness or movement?
 
If it’s true this moment needs my help, how did it get along before this body was born?

Q: How can I notice/become aware of the “me”?

MICHAEL: It’s what’s constantly trying to “fix” the moment.

“EVERYTHING is an expression of the One…” -GP Walsh. New MJ Awakening Blog

“EVERYTHING is an expression of the One. The idea that the expression exists INDEPENDENTLY of the One is the essence of the belief in the person, that is the essence of the separate self. THAT doesn’t exist. THAT is just a thought projected upon what does exist.”

-GP Walsh

MICHAEL: Like the Sun’s rays are not separate from the Sun, but an expression of it.
