EXPLORING THOUGHTS

The confusion lies in forgetting that I AM always prior to ANY thought that arises.

Otherwise, what would know/be aware of the thought’s existence?

(E.g., I must be in the room prior to you to know that you just walked into the room!)

I must feel here/now directly, bodily, that I AM always observing the coming and going of thoughts, some which feel very good, some of which feel very bad, and some which I don’t care either way about.

I notice I AM addicted to feeling good.

I notice that I only want positive thoughts/feelings and I don’t want negative thoughts/feelings.

I also notice I am still interested in thoughts.

However, authentic Self Realization is not about fixing thoughts to make them better.

It’s about realizing that the one who is interested in thoughts isn’t me.

It’s about realizing that the one who is interested in thoughts doesn’t exist.

There is only the one Self. The one Self is all that exists… everywhere and at all times.

FEELING VS INTERPRETING

Heart feels… Mind interprets

Silence… Noise

LETTING GO OF ALL OBJECTS

This morning as I awoke, I found myself spontaneously meditating on how strongly the mind is attached to physical objects in this world of infinite forms. I remember as a child dreaming of getting a new toy and believing once I had it I could play with it whenever I wanted and be happy… ha! 

The realization today is about the importance of knowing clearly that no physical object (person, place, or thing) has the power to truly bring us happiness. Because the belief that ANY object has the power to give me happiness means that at some level I feel lack and believe this object will fill/take away that lack. But is this true? Can an object ever truly fulfill me?

When I see for myself that they can’t, because the root sense of “lack” is still present even after I acquire the object, then the only thing to do is drop into my heart, into presence, and go straight to this feeling of lack. To really be present with it. To feel its pain and to simply love it, as it is. That’s it. 

So instead of reacting to the sense of lack, arguing with it, or trying to fix it, I am simply giving it space and love…. space and love….space and love.

Evolving Self Fragmentation

“I realized that this feeling I’ve always had of being a person, was never the feeling of being a person… I just mistook it as that. It was me all along, me right here, Me… I was always Me, looking for Me outside of Me… but here I was all along, knowing I was Me but thinking that the Me was a person!! How did I miss this?? How did I not notice me, there’s only me, I only ever feel me!!”

-Nita McIntyre

“The ‘Person-Mind’ is just a pointer to point out the thoughts that are creating an illusion of confusion, pain and suffering that were never the truth of what you are. There is no ‘Person-Mind’, there is no separate self…. There is only thoughts that are arising that have been believed by You to create a dream. Stop believing any and all thoughts. Just Be… and the illusion will be revealed.”

-Nazarah Merah

 

MICHAEL: I found these two quotes from Nita and Nazarah to be particularly direct and powerful in seeing that what you and I think of as being a person, isn’t being a person at all!

The best your mind can ever do is IMAGINE you’re a separate person… but this imagining never actually achieves the status of Reality! You never have actually changed… that’s the illusion… it’s the mind that is confused because it can never become what you ALREADY are… but that doesn’t stop it from trying!!

So funny when you see this…because you go from irritation and annoyance to love and compassion when you see how hard it’s trying to be You, to be immortal, to be Reality.

It’s YOU (The One Infinite) pretending/thinking/imaging what it would be like to be a person!!! There is a night and day difference between imagining you’re a separate person and actually being a separate person. Noticing this one distinction can make all the difference. You’ll know when you see this clearly because as Nazarah says, it’s soooooo shocking!!?

One moment you’re trying so hard to “get it right,” and the next you are stunned as you realize there never was a person. It’s all You pretending… everything is YOU AS THAT!!! This is why (imo) Nazarah is always laughing… because you are constantly amazed at everything YOU appear to do in this wild and crazy dream… it’s ALL YOU. That’s the Cosmic joke!!

chess pieces in sink

Hi beautiful being!!

In case you were wondering what an after-school chess teacher who teaches at 6 schools a week does during spring break…

Well, one of the things I do is wash off hundreds of grimy chess pieces to get them back to their original clean condition! 

After draining the dirty soapy water, I refilled the sink with clean water when I suddenly noticed that the water was “holding” or providing the “space” for all the pieces… just like Awareness effortlessly holds all bodies/everything in the space of now!!

The mind is a thought producing machine and this morning I caught it starting-up upon awakening. New MJ Awakening Blog

baby waking up

Upon awakening this morning, I could feel/hear the mind literally start-up/kick in. You can actually catch it start babbling its nonsense in mid-sentence if you are present enough as you come out of sleep. And if you can hear the mind, you know that it’s not you, because you’re what’s hearing it. Always. Even right now.

And if you say, “Ok mind, I am here and ready to listen, go ahead… go head…” and then you get quiet, it has nothing to say! As a friend said in a recent facebook post, the thing never shuts up, but now, when I become present with it, it has nothing to say!!??

-Michael Jeffreys

p.s. I found that looking at/feeling into this babies’ serene face from presence (no thoughts), takes you right to stillness/peace/serenity…
