Michael Jeffreys “It hides by being Everything.” 8-5-20 Satsang video
August 7, 2020

Michael Jeffreys “It hides by being Everything.” 8-5-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

“It’s the only Song that timelessly sings.” -Paul Morgan-Somers

(It’s Boundlessness singing & Boundlessness hearing.)

1. At satsang we attempt to speak about the unspeakable.

2. Me lives in a world of separation and it’s constantly striving to get to wholeness. And that whole procedure is an illusion, because nonduality is already the case.

3. You can’t be both Boundlessness AND a separate me.

4. The me is constantly doing, constantly trying to survive. And it doesn’t care how it does it. It can talk badly to itself, it can praise itself, it doesn’t matter what it does as long as it keeps moving.

5. The me always think’s its problem is that what it’s trying is not working, so it just switches to trying something else. And it’s endless. And that’s what has to hit you; that the seeking is endless and leads nowhere.

6. The me is designed to seek, but never find. And so all goals are designed to, sooner or later, lose their allure so that the seeking begins again. Wash, rinse, repeat. This is what keeps the samsaric wheel going. Always striving, but never actually arriving anywhere.

For silent contemplation: How is this moment happening?

7. Everything is IT. This is Boundlessness experiencing Itself, so it’s literally playing all roles. All parts are played by the same actor.

8. The brain sophisticated over time and learned how to map out scenarios that aren’t actually happening. And it’s run amuck. It’s created so many maps and so many stories and so many perspectives, that it’s lost itself in its own illusory world and now it’s searching for a way out of its self-created prison.

9. All you get with seeking is more seeking… it’s endless because the mind can always conjure up another desire.

10. Nonduality is pointing out that even the labels are Boundlessness. Form is Formlessness, Formlessness is form. They are not two. (Thus no one has ever done anything because there is no one separate to be a doer. There’s only Life, only Boundlessness, only Ocean, only Tao.)

For silent contemplation: Where does everything come from?

DIANE: It comes from Nothing.

11. An analogy to help understand how “one can appear as many” is your own body. We have a nose, ears, eyes, skin, hair, heart, liver, stomach, arms, legs, etc… many “parts”, yet it’s ONE body.

12. If it’s raining, then that’s what is. But it’s not your rain, it’s not personal. And that’s what the me does is it takes everything personally.

JOSE: You are always happiness. At all times. Our true nature is always happiness.

Michael Jeffreys “Doubtless Freedom: Truth is what IS.” 7-29-20 Satsang video
July 30, 2020

Michael Jeffreys “Doubtless Freedom: Truth is what IS.” 7-29-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. Truth is… what IS

DOUBTLESS FREEDOM

2. If we’re still not clear on our true nature, on what IS, then there’s always going to be doubts. And that’s what we’re bumping up against.

3. At Satsang we often hear, “I had it, I lost it!” Let’s take a look at this… can we lose what IS?

PETER: It cannot be lost because it always IS.

4. Where’s your allegiance? Is your allegiance to what always is, always has been, always will be? Or, is your allegiance to the me? To the psychological mental construct that’s all over the place!?

5. The me tries to negotiate. It says, “Ya, ya, I know there’s One Truth, BUT…” Everything after the “BUT…” is false.

6. If you take your story and set it aside, what’s left?

JOAN: Nothing. It’s just an empty, blank space.

7. There has to be the changeless to know change.

8. This is a letting go of all stories. Stories can be entertaining, but like Santa Claus, none of ’em contain Truth.

9. Truth doesn’t have an agenda. Agenda’s are for me’s, not for Truth.

10. At Satsang we’re not interested in your story or my story or any story. We’re interested in what’s ever-present and prior to ALL stories, full-stop.

11. What IS is always and only what IS. And nobody made it and no one can take it away. That is Immortality… Unborn.

12. The body has changed continuously, non-stop. But You, have You changed? The one looking out the body… that Conscious-Awareness… effortless… ever-present… no “on” or “off” switch to it.

13. There’s no doing to become what you already are. And the me’s a doer… the body is an action figure.

14. The sky is like awareness and the clouds are the different arisings… thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensations. And the sky doesn’t cling to the clouds… notice that the sky does nothing… the clouds come and they go all by themselves. And that’s how it is for us. All your feelings, thoughts emotions… they’ll leave on their own. You’re eternal. Anything that arises is going to pass. You’re not going anywhere.

**My internet connection went out after 26 mins. and so Satsang abruptly/unexpectedly ended at that point. (No doer!) I’m happy that the video still recorded and is available to those seeking doubtless Freedom. Remember, you already are what you seek.

passing clouds

“If you remember, that’s not what you are… it is what is being experienced, but it’s not what is. What IS is not that. That cannot appear without what IS…. it’s the most powerful pointer when grasped.”

-Mooji

MICHAEL: All thoughts, feelings, sensations and moods come and go. What knows this? Does that one come and go?

No. That which is aware of the transient is not transient… and you are THAT. This is what must be deeply intuited/grasped, but cannot be when we are ignorantly identified as the transient body/mind.

The Real You has never had a thought. New MJ Awakening Blog

The Real You has never had a thought.

Michael Jeffreys “Your true nature is wordless, formless, unlimited,and ever-present.” 7-22-20 Satsang video
July 23, 2020

Michael Jeffreys “Your true nature is wordless, formless, unlimited & ever-present.” 7-22-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. Satsang is about getting clear on your original nature, before the conditioning took hold.

2. What you are is prior to “I am this” or “I am that.”

3. We get so lost in the conditioning that we completely forget the naked I AM presence that is our original nature… wordless and formless, yet ever-present.

4. The me is the cause of all the suffering yet we don’t want to let it go… so just notice that, notice your attachment to this me.

5. The original I AM that you are (right now, full-stop!) is wordless.

6. When this starts to click for you, you won’t be able to hold on to your stories like you once did.

7. So the prescription is to rest as this I AM, this wordless presence that you are, as much as possible.

8. “Having never left the house you are looking for the way home.”
-Nisargadatta Maharaj

Getting back home is not a doing, because we’re already home. It’s stopping long enough to realize that.

9. The whole dream crumbles when you see that it’s all propped up by words. Without a story, has anything ever happened?

10. Stop and really look: Where are you in this? Try to actually locate yourself. Whether in a story you’re believing, a problem, a thought, a feeling, etc. You’ll find that you can’t actually find yourself in anything!

11. You’ve never been a thought.

12. Our habit is to go right into the problem, and we forget that something has to be aware… something has to exist PRIOR to the thought to even know that there’s a thought/problem. What is that something?

13. This (looks around) is not real… You’re real! Reality is real and Reality doesn’t change.

14. MICHAEL: Stay here in the not knowing. DIANE: And that’s the best place to be… you can’t lose from that place.
