MICHAEL: Instead of assuming you are the mind, silently OBSERVE it. Only now is real. Everything “not now” (as if that were possible!) is imagination.

What if the BELIEF that you are lacking something was never actually true? New MJ Awakening Blog

March 2, 2019 - Leave a Response

universal delusion is still delusion

“The mechanism that keeps you asleep is the delusion of attainment. On a deep fundamental level, you believe that you can acquire an outside source and make it become part of you, make it complete you.

Until you have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that attainment is an illusion, your ‘self’ will still feel real and your search will seem justified, necessary, unavoidable.”

-Kyle Hoobin

MICHAEL: Because we assume we are not enough simply as we are, we look to the world to fill that lack. But, what if our starting assumption is incorrect? What if the belief that we are lacking something was never actually true? If you are truly not lacking anything, then what do you “need” from the world?

Am I seeing THIS moment through the mind or Silence? New MJ Awakening Blog

god in silence

AM I SEEING THIS MOMENT THROUGH THE MIND’S IMAGES, BELIEFS AND FEARS OR IN SILENCE? (aka, YOU CAN’T DANCE AT TWO WEDDINGS.)

“Your mind has to be truly silent, empty of thoughts and concepts. It has to become a state of receptivity. Complete silence. While you are looking out into whatever happens to be your current scenery with a false ‘knowing’ that you are ‘short of money’ or ‘lacking in health’ or ‘lonely’ or ‘limited’ in some way your mind is busy entertaining belief-images of its own making.

While it’s doing so Spiritual Allness cannot penetrate. It forever wants to. It is forever ready to. It is forever pushing at your consciousness trying to burst through. But your mind is busy with images, fears and schemes of its own making, thereby shutting Spirit out.”

-Paul F. Gorman
(from, The Miracle Self)

 

MICHAEL: What does Silence FEEL like?

THINKING COVERS PEACE UP, SILENCE REVEALS IT

Right where the mind is claiming incompleteness, lack, not-enoughness, is only ever Wholeness/Peace/Infinite Presence.

Matt, Michael, Julie

About 9 years ago I happily hosted Matt Kahn & Julie Dittmar in my apartment in West Los Angeles for Satsang. And even though it’s been almost a decade, I often think of what Matt said to me right after he pointed at my bookcase filled with spiritual/nonduality books and told me his goal was to turn them into firewood!

He said: “Remember that everyone is doing the best they can and always speak from your own experience.”

The appearance of lack, limitation, not-enoughness, is only ever that… a limited mind imagined production on a forever blank screen!

From last night’s West LA Satsang:

paul f. gorman - no credit no blame

MICHAEL: The self-pinching (contraction) is taking credit or blame for something you had nothing to do with.

The dirty little secret of Enlightenment. New MJ Awakening Blog

dirty little secret

When the spontaneous recognition occurs, the separate “me” you currently take/presume/believe yourself to be–the individual thinker, feeler, and doer– won’t be there.

Oh, you’ll still have thoughts, feelings and do things, but you’ll no longer be able to identify as being their source. And without the attention sucking, energy draining “personal identity” constantly hogging the scene with its endless array of judgments/criticisms and aggrievements/problems, there is only the simplicity/peace of what IS.
