Being Awareness only is being my true nature. New MJ Awakening Blog
June 26, 2017

self awareness

What is spontaneously, ceaselessly and effortlessly seeing out your eyes right now this very moment?? Find out! Get to know IT, for IT is YOU!!! How? By moving your attention from the content, the objects of perception, to pure perception itself.

Become consciously aware of Awareness and nothing else!!! 

Michael Jeffreys

p.s. Being Awareness only is being my true nature.

Your country, language, religion, age, color, matter not! Consciousness is the same consciousness in all beings. New MJ Awakening Blog

It doesn’t matter what country you come from, what language you speak, or what your religion is or isn’t. It doesn’t matter your age, whether you’re 5, 19, 48, 73 or 99! It doesn’t matter whether you are black, white, brown, yellow, green, purple or blue!

Consciousness is the same consciousness in all beings. It’s what’s looking out all beings eyes, whether they realize it or not. If you go to mind, you will be in whatever belief system/political culture your mind-body believes/was raised in.

But, Truth, ever-present Consciousness, is the same One in All and is inherently free of all qualities, needs, desires or limits. Its eternal nature is peace, regardless of the comings and goings of temporary circumstances.

Value and importance are not “out there”… new MJ Awakening Blog
June 21, 2017

Value and importance are not “out there” with the “thing,” but here where Awareness itself is being aware. -William Samuel

MICHAEL: The illusion is that the “person, place or thing” that we are interested in “contains” the feeling or value we are placing on it. But in actuality it is ALL coming from us. Any “person, place, or thing” is inherently devoid of meaning. It is we who “project” any meaning on to it.

For example, we are so excited about getting a new book from Amazon, sometimes even paying extra for faster shipping!, and then a few months later, the book is up on the shelf, essentially forgotten about as we have already moved on to the next “thing.”
What happened? If the excitement was actually contained in the book itself, it would always make us happy. But our own experience (if we are honest) is that a “person, place, or thing” can seem to make us happy for a little while, but then it fades.

So, was the happiness, value, importance truly in the object, or was it us all along? Other than pure Awareness, what else is present to even know or be aware of anything??

p.s. And this includes the mental object in our mind called, “me.” Its “value” too… is it not constantly fluctuating? Than the “me” (the egoic sense of imagined separate self) must also be a “thing” and thus inherently meaningless. When all identification with objects ceases, that leaves only silent, free, whole, loving, ever-present Awareness as our one and only nature.

 

Q: What is the difference between my true nature and my ego? new MJ Awakening Blog

Q: What is the difference between my true nature and my ego?

MICHAEL: Your true nature is infinite-awareness-love-being, nothing more nothing less. And in fact is ALL you can ever be (like it or not!). The ego is an imposter, a psychological construct/false identity that claims to be you.

It has its own strong conditioned ideas/beliefs/opinions about what should or should not be happening in any given moment, but is not You. For example, it’s what is interested in endlessly arguing/debating its beliefs (which it mistakes as truth) with others on facebook. 🙂

p.s. Note that it is not enough to just agree with the thought,”Yes, I am infinite-awareness-love-being.” We must feel in our heart that it is in fact our actual true nature and then live from this infinite-awareness-love-being identity AND NO OTHER.

In other words, we must NOTICE how we unconsciously slip back into the old ego identity out of habit. It is our earnestness for truth/total freedom that unfailingly shows us the way back to the one transcendent love we have never actually left.

There is only ever Now.

When are you reading these words?

Now.

If you don’t like these words, when will you not like them?

Now.

If you like these words, when will you like them?

Now.

When you leave this post to look at something else, when is that occurring?

Now.

There is only ever Now. So there is no possibility of ever escaping or leaving the now. After all, you could only do that when?

Now.

A watch or clock is an illusion that doesn’t even have space on it for the only thing that truly ever is, NOW!!!

One of the (many!) tricks of the ego is… New MJ Awakening Blog
June 15, 2017

Conclusions

One of the (many!) tricks of the ego is to draw a CONCLUSION from whatever our present experience is. So for example, if we are feeling crappy or down or anxious, the ego, via intense imagination/feelings, will have us dead in a ditch in no time!!?

But let’s look a little deeper. Is this true? Does how I am feeling right now dictate how I am going to be feeling 1 min. from now? Maybe yes, maybe no… the truth is, I really don’t know. And it’s in this space of “not knowing anything” that our awareness/love/presence is most happy!

Try it and see for yourself. For 1 min., just see what it feels like “not to know anything.” I.e., get quiet and tune into your breathing. And notice how much more you instantly become aware of in the space around you!

Suddenly, you become aware of the birds chirping outside, the sounds of the traffic, the room temperature, the pressure of your bum on the chair, the voice in the head, etc. And now, from this aware space, you can effortlessly witness the passing phenomena, rather than identifying with it.

Fill the day with love… New MJ Awakening Blog

“Start the day with Love, fill the day with Love, end the day with Love.”
Michael Langford

MICHAEL: This means loving whatever is presently arising. Note that the ego does not want to do this. The ego wants to judge, not love. Notice this, and love that the ego wants to judge and not love. Do not make an exception to loving whatever is presently arising. The ego will tell you this is not a good idea. That one should not love “bad” things. Love that the ego thinks this. Start your day with Love, fill the day with Love, end the day with Love.
