All human beings are mummers… New MJ Awakening Blog

there's nothing behind the mask

 

All human beings are mummers.

Does not the baby mimic the sounds it hears?

Do we not all mimic words from someone else’s language we were taught to mimic?

What do you know that nobody taught you?

For that you cannot use any word.

What is aware of THOUGHT? New MJ Awakening Blog
April 14, 2018

Just-Float1

As I tune into/feel my mind’s attention, I notice it jumps around like a frog from one water lily to the next, i.e., one thought to the next. Endlessly.
 
What does this have to do with me? Do I jump around? Have I ever moved? Or is everything else moving but me?

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!!??

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

 

 

Notice: What is AWARE of the mind is not the mind. New MJ Awakening Blog

“This is what the ‘person mind’ can never understand and this is why there’s so much confusion on this planet… You’re not realizing that You are the Self Awareness that’s seeing the mind and the mind is in front of you.”

-Nazarah Merah

MICHAEL: Notice: What is AWARE of the mind is not the mind.

That you are PRIOR to any object, anything knowable, is indisputable… New MJ Awakening Blog
February 28, 2018

That you are PRIOR to any object is indisputable, as how would you know of or be aware of the object if YOU were not here previous to it showing up?

What’s an object? Anything knowable. Then I AM prior to even “me” or “myself,” since I am always aware of that one. Yes? Regardless if it’s feeling up or down, happy or sad, are you not AWARE of exactly how it’s feeling right now?

This is how to begin to break the lifelong habit of identifying with this mental object called, “me” or “myself” and realize, Oh, I’m PRIOR to that appearance and all stories related to that appearance. And to realize this has always been so, but was never clearly noticed. What was not noticed? That YOU have never come or gone or changed or moved.

No moment is more Holier than any other moment because what is Truly Holy never goes anywhere. New MJ Awakening Blog

No moment is more Holier than any other moment because what is Truly Holy never goes anywhere.  -Michael Jeffreys

Tom (on facebook): I don’t recall you using language like “holy” and “sacred” before – am I mistaken?

Michael: This is just how it came out today. 🙂 All the words are always pointing at only one “thing.” And that one thing can’t be put into words. When what is most holy, most true, most real is silently recognized it is found nowhere else but here/now.

Thus here/now is the only “thing” that’s ever truly holy.

king puppet show in awareness

“Only awareness is aware of awareness. The finite mind is not an entity in its own right. It has no existence of its own. It is the activity that awareness assumes in order to know objective knowledge and experience, just as we might say that King Lear is the activity that (the actor) John Smith assumes in order to manifest the drama of the play.

Just as John Smith never ceases being John Smith or becomes King Lear, likewise, at no point does awareness cease being awareness or become a finite mind. And just as it is not King Lear who knows John Smith, so, likewise, it is never a finite mind that becomes or knows infinite awareness.”

-Rupert Spira

MICHAEL: Awareness is playing every role, (including you) right now.

 

Whatever is presently happening, does it not first have to be registered by “something”? New MJ Awakening Blog

Another word for Awareness is REGISTERING. So whatever is presently happening, does it not first have to be registered by “something”? What is that “something” that registers our present experience?

Normally the mind jumps right into evaluating the moment, and overlooks the fact that the moment must be registered (by “something”!) before it can be evaluated. What is silently registering this moment? And does that which is registering this moment come and go? Or is it the objects/content of the moment that comes and goes in the eternally present “registering” Awareness.

Realizing the Inseparableness of Consciousness: “There really is no line which separates hearing from seeing.” -Marie S. Watts. New MJ Awakening Blog

5 senses watercolor

“We hear much about the five physical senses. Actually there are no physical senses. There is but one Sense, and that one is Consciousness. This one indivisible Sense may appear as seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, or smelling; but these are only certain aspects of Consciousness.

It is important to realize the inseparableness of Consciousness. There really is no line which separates hearing from seeing. Neither is there a line of demarcation between hearing, seeing, tasting, ‘touching, or any other of the distinct aspects of Consciousness.”

-Marie S. Watts

MICHAEL: This quote by Marie on the surface appears to be quite radical. However, if one actually takes the time to NOTICE, it may be discovered that there is indeed no line between seeing and hearing or smelling and touching, etc.

While they may have been traditionally thought of as being separate senses, is it not Consciousness that is aware of seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling? It is NOT the nose that is actually aware of smells, but Consciousness. It is not the eyes that is aware of these words but Consciousness.

What is aware of everything You are aware of, regardless of its apparent form? Ever present Infinite Consciousness.
