If you ever come to the West LA weekly satsang (which is held weds. evenings in my apt.) you’ll see Buddha peacefully sitting on the table next to the couch.  

Q: What does it mean to IDENTIFY with the mind? New MJ Awakening Blog

Q: What does it mean to IDENTIFY with the mind?

MICHAEL: It means to forget that you are Awareness and only ever Awareness/present aliveness, and mistake yourself for a mind projection, such as a thought, feeling, idea, sensation, story, belief, opinion, etc.

You are ever the silent observer, never the observed. You are what is aware of the mind, the mind is not aware of You. As Mooji says, “You can exist without the psychological mind, but it cannot exist without You.” 

You are ever the silent light that shines/illuminates the streaming transitory play of Maya. You have no beginning or end… You simply are.

 

Genuine freedom is beyond all words/concepts/thoughts/beliefs about freedom… it simply IS. New MJ Awakening Blog

freedom

“Freedom is greatly more than the mere freedom from pain, sickness, anxiety, lack and the like. Genuine freedom is freedom to be. It is freedom to be one’s own God-created Self. It is not a reaction against something. It is not even freedom from troubling conditions such as those I have just mentioned.

Genuine freedom is infinitely more than a human reaction against discordant situations. Genuine freedom is not a reaction against some thing. It is even more than freedom from hatred, jealousy, or war. Freedom is. Freedom is being one’s spiritual Identity. It is being one’s Self.

Freedom is not being free to replace one’s human condition for another seemingly better human condition. For instance, it is much more than merely replacing sickness with health, violence with nonviolence, or fear with confidence. We are not even free to engage in the fruitless activity of comparing our freedom or lack of freedom with another’s freedom or lack of it.

In short, freedom is not a replacement of one view of life with another view of life, for to be spiritually free is to be free from comparison.”

-W. Norman Cooper (from, THE NON-THINKING SELF)

 

MICHAEL: Genuine freedom is beyond all words/concepts/thoughts/beliefs about freedom… it simply IS.

 

 

“You,” like the Michael Richard’s character “Kramer” on Seinfeld, don’t actually exist. New MJ Awakening Blog
July 7, 2017

Michael-Richards-Kramer

Reality is one. Nondual. Not two. Hence there is nothing separate or other than it. Reality/Consciousness/Awareness is always ever itself. Whole, full, unlimited, free… nothing lacking or separate. There is nothing “personal” in Awareness. All projections are nothing more than an appearance… the Ocean appearing as the wave. “You” the wave, are an appearance of the one, singular, Ocean.

In actuality, “you” have never done anything… how can an appearance do anything?? “You” can only APPEAR to do something, just like a character played by an actor can appear to do many things. E.g., “Kramer” on Seinfeld appeared to get into many sticky situations, but does “Kramer” actually exist? No! All actions/words of the fictitious character were provided 100% by Michael Richards, not “Kramer.” In actuality, there is no “Kramer.”

In the same way, “You” are being done. “You, the wave” only appear to do things. In Reality, the Ocean, Consciousness, is all/does all. See clearly that this “you/wave” is a temporary projection and not what you truly are or have ever been.

In Reality you are (and have always been) pure freedom, pure love, pure peace, pure joy, pure bliss, pure rest, pure relaxation, pure lightness of being. See this clearly, with your entire Being, and it’s the end of confusion, the end of struggle, the end of suffering… Hallelujah! Amen.

The “I” that is seeking has only ever been a thought… be conscious of silence. New MJ Awakening Blog

The “I” that is seeking, trying to find its true nature, trying to find God has only ever been a thought. –Michael Jeffreys

“Self-truth-knowing is found in the silence of your own consciousness.”
W. Norman Cooper (from, Experience Your Perfect Soul)

MICHAEL: Notice where it’s not, and will never, ever, throughout all of existence be found: in thought.

Q: I don’t yet see clearly how I am only awareness.

MICHAEL: Who is this “I” that is Awareness?

Is there an “I” who is busy being Awareness 24/7 or is there only ever unbounded, unlimited, ever-free Awareness that is aware of an arising “I” thought that claims to be “me”?

If it’s really “you,” than what is aware of it??

p.s. Do not go to conceptual mind for “the answer.”

Being Awareness only is being my true nature. New MJ Awakening Blog

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

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.
