What if no one has ever died because no one was ever born? New MJ Awakening Blog

WHAT IF NO ONE HAS EVER DIED BECAUSE NO ONE WAS EVER BORN?

“There is an agreed upon, consensus reality which almost the entire human race shares. The world has been around a long time; it is ancient. Into this world, you are born as an individual; you grow, learn, experience life, and die. There is some disagreement concerning what happens after that, except that for everyone else, life will go on – until they also die. Everybody thinks they know this – or some local variation of this. But in fact when you were ‘born’ you did not know this. You LEARNED this. Everyone else learned it too and so it is an almost universally shared idea. But everybody believing something doesn’t make it true.

From eternity, without time, I Am, the unborn. Just as a dream begins at some point during sleep, so ‘at some point’ That which I Am appears as Consciousness here, and this world comes into being. I open my eyes: there is experiencing of life in this apparent body/mind. After a certain span of experiencing, I close my eyes: the world ceases to be, and from eternity I Am, the unborn. What could be simpler, or more obvious?

Every once in a while someone will come along and try to tell folks this, but a consensus reality is tough to crack. It is self-reinforcing and has built-in ways to deal with cognitive dissonance. One way is to call the offenders ‘crazy.’ Another, just as effective, is to call them ‘mystics.’ Either way the illusion of separation, the consensus reality, is maintained.”

MICHAEL: That you were born is so universally believed that to even question it seems insane. But what if it is only the body that is born and not You? If you were born, how come you don’t remember being born? “Because I was too young” is the common reply. But what if the real reason is because you weren’t. What are the implications? If you were never born then how can you die? What if no one has ever died because no one was ever born?

The One Dreaming… New MJ Awakening Blog

THE ONE DREAMING

What you think of as your life is actually a long dream. It’s the One dreaming…
What you think of as you in your mind is not the real you, but a reflection, a temporary appearance, an idea.
It’s a limited, timebound appearance of that which is unlimited and timeless.
Time is a reflection, a temporary manifestation of the true timeless, unmanifested You.
Time only appears to exist. Without the appearance of time, nothing is happening.

Now has no story. Which means You have no story. All stories are for the illusory me.

…there is no labeling the unspeakable.

-David Carse

Michael: All stories are labels. You are neither. What You are can’t be put into words. What You are can’t be spoken.

WHEN THE UNLIMITED BELIEVES IT’S LIMITED

The “I” that you take yourself to be is a mistaken assumption. A false notion. A persistent idea. And it’s the reason for your suffering. How could believing you are something that you are not, and have never been, bring anything other than suffering?

There is only One Existence and You are THAT. New MJ Awakening Blog

THERE IS ONLY ONE EXISTENCE AND YOU ARE THAT

“No one ever doubts that he or she exists. Taking that existence to be real, and given the fact that there is only one existence, then one’s own existence must be the only existence. There are no individual existences.”
-Andrew Vernon

MICHAEL: Since existence itself is always present, and you already are THAT existence, than an existence that comes and goes, i.e., a personal existence, a “me’s” existence, must be illusory! How can there be two existences?

THE SELF ISN’T IN THE MIND, THE MIND IS IN THE SELF

“The Self doesn’t need to remember Itself and the Self cannot forget Itself either. The mind remembers and forgets, but you are not the mind. What you are is always present; you only have to recognize it.”

-Sri Ranjit Maharaj

THE IMAGINARY “I”

When you say or think “I”, that which you say or think you’re referring to isn’t, and has never been, what you actually are and have always been.

You, Reality, have no ego. New MJ Awakening Blog

YOU, REALITY, HAVE NO EGO

“The ego is always looking for some benefit for itself. For example, “I must be respected, loved, or recognized.” Whenever your ego experiences hurt, it is due to a lack of understanding. Ego is the problem for you, so let it die. If it dies, it is for the best. It is the Illusion that dies. If the ego dies, then only He, the Reality, remains.”

-Sri Ranjit Maharaj

MICHAEL: Space is impersonal as it’s everywhere. It has no owner. So the space inside an object is the same space outside an object, with the walls of the object creating an illusory boundary since it’s all one space. But imagine if a pot thought that the space inside it was “its” space? That it had to protect this important space and not let anything happen to “its” space. Imagine how much suffering this one mistaken notion would bring it.

This is what the ego does. It claims ownership of that which it does not own. It is a phantom. In Reality it doesn’t exist. See that the ego was never more than a persistent idea, that it’s never been You, and be done with it.
