Michael Jeffreys “THAT which is PRIOR to all stories.” 7-8-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. We’re not “attending” to this moment naked.
We’re bringing an entire identity from the past into this moment
and it pollutes the moment.

2. The thing to notice is how, if we keep starting from story,
there’s just more story… that there’s no freedom in that.

3. What is THIS moment like when there’s no history, no past,
no future, no story, no knowing anything? (contemplate deeply)

4. The me is story; story is the me. The two are one. What we are pointing to at satsang is PRIOR to all stories. Beingness doesn’t need any words. It’s prior to words.

5. What makes you so sure it’s “your” story?
(contemplate deeply)

6. THAT which knows everything you’ve ever known isn’t knowable.
Thus anything you know isn’t IT.

7. The me is a construct. It’s a mental knot–an energy that is constricted and it goes in a loop. That’s why you can’t get free of the me. So if you notice, I don’t give you any perscriptions for how to deal with your me. We’re interested in seeing that you’re not the me and never were.

8. The me wants awakening… but it wants to be there for it!?

9. The biggest “yeah but” that I hear at satsang is, “I’m not there yet.” INQUIRE: Is that a story?

10. Beingness never goes anywhere. You never had it, so you can never lose it, because YOU ARE IT.

11. ALAN: Do you have a definition for Freedom?
MICHAEL: The end of seeking.

12. If something is dependent on something else, can it be Free?

13. Before anything can be known, Beingness must already be present to know it.

14. Wei Wu Wei: Actionless action; action without a doer.

15. Where were you before the body was born? (contemplate deeply)

16. MICHAEL: You’re not the body because the body’s the body!
DIANE: It goes back to that saying, “Anything you can perceive is not you.”

“Whatever you think is not you.
You cannot think about yourself.
Perceive this clearly and be thought free.”

“You are what you are seeking.
Your true being exists prior to the arising of any concept.”

“There’s only one thing to be understood.
And that is that you are the formless, timeless, unborn.”

-Nisargadatta Maharaj

Awareness… New MJ Awakening Blog

AWARENESS

What’s aware of seeing isn’t seeing.
What’s aware of hearing isn’t hearing.
What’s aware of thinking isn’t thinking…

Michael Jeffreys “It’s total relaxation… something the “me” cannot do.” 6-24-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. It’s total relaxation… something the “me” cannot do.

2. The idea that this moment is already whole and complete,
has to be swept aside so the “me” can fix it.

3. MICHAEL: Who cares about the me?
ALICE: (With a big smile) The me!

4. This moment is already whole and complete, so you can’t do anything about that!

5. The “me” IS stress. There’s no such thing as a truly at peace “me.”

6. Where you’re looking FROM is Peace.

7. And so the freedom is when you no longer feed the me, like you no longer feed Santa. “Santa” is a fictional character… so is
the “me,” but that’s not how we hold it.

8. This “me” needs your cooperation, it needs your interest to keep running.

9. STORY is the only way the “me” can keep itself alive. No story, no me.

10. There’s just this moment. This is it. Nothing else is happening but this…

11. Life does all means there’s no extra room for a “doer.” It would be like trying to blow in the air to help the wind!? Life is doing all the movements. “Look how hard I’m blowing. Nobody appreciates how much I’m blowing!” Well, did the wind ask you to help it blow??

12. There’s no Freedom in story.

13. There is no one. There’s just Life, Just Wholeness, appearing as Everything.

14. The “me” doesn’t do anything; it’s a reactor.

There’s only the Unexplainable.

What is mind?

That which believes it can explain the Unexplainable.
