RESISTANCE TO WHAT IS IS SUFFERING
 
I know of no better, quicker or more efficient way to suffer than to be in resistance to what is. And this includes being in resistance to resistance. When nothing is resisted, no thought, feeling or emotion, good or bad, positive or negative, pleasant or unpleasant, intense or not intense, what does that leave?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Michael Jeffreys

There is no version of “the me” that does not contain “the me”… new MJ Awakening Blog

me is in all doing

There is no version of “the me” that does not contain “the me,” which is why “the me” can never free itself from itself.

“Ah, I am in resistance to my resistance!” New MJ Awakening Blog

Suffering is resisting what is.

And if you are resisting what is, then that is what is…

“Ah, I am in resistance to my resistance!”

Silently noticing this brings peace.

-Michael Jeffreys

 

FACEBOOK QUESTION: I find it difficult at times to discern between “what is” and “what appears to be.” Am I not only experiencing my response to “what appears to be,” rather than to “what is”? Any input on how to tell the difference here?

MICHAEL: It’s actually much simpler than that. Whatever is showing up, that’s what is. So, if resistance is showing up, that’s what is. If judgement is showing up, that’s what is. If past memories from childhood are showing up, that’s what is. 

The only recommendation here is to NOTICE this. That’s it. Not to try to change anything at all. Let the mind be. Just observe its confusion. And remember to breath… you are already whole and complete, something the mind can never be.

Q: What’s the difference between someone who is awakened and someone who is not?

MICHAEL: The one who is not knows who they are.

Q: What’s the biggest mistake seekers make on the spiritual path? New MJ Awakening Blog

everything revolves around planet me

Q: What’s the biggest mistake seekers make on the spiritual path?

MICHAEL: That they are going to get something out of it, i.e., enlightenment, awakening, happiness, peace, etc. It’s the opposite. True spirituality is a loss, not a gain. It’s the dissolving of the false “me,” the one who imagines everything revolves around “them.”

This personal position is the suffering. For now the rain is not simply what is happening, for example, but “my” picnic has been ruined! See? It‘s a personal interpretation of that which is inherently impersonal.

Without a thought, what is personal?
