Is it possible for AWARENESS to be DISTURBED? New MJ Awakening Blog
July 31, 2018

emotional pain not mandatory

Is Awareness ever disturbed? Or is it aware of disturbance? In other words, which actually changes, Awareness or that which it is presently perceiving?

For example, you seem to be upset about something. But look closer. Is Awareness actually upset or is it aware of a feeling of being upset arising? The mind may claim, Who cares, I’m suffering!” But noticing this subtle but crucial distinction can make ALL the difference!

Once you realize you are what is aware of the feeling, then you are not attached to it, no longer taking it personally in any way, and are free to allow the feeling to be as it is.

And through your loving total acceptance of it, the lack of making it into a problem, the willingness to allow it as much time and space as it needs without any kind of agenda whatsoever, the contracted pain energy is healed/transmuted back into its natural stateless state, ever free boundless Awareness.

AWARENESS is the only ever-present constant regardless of the experience. New MJ Awakening Blog

time in awareness

AWARENESS is the only ever-present constant regardless of the experience.

All experiences have a duration.

All experiences come and go.

What doesn’t come and go?

Now.

Is that which is aware of every thought itself a thought? New MJ Awakening Blog

Presence IS and is not attached to thoughts, which come and go.

Presence is timeless… thoughts are time.
 
Notice this.
 
Keep silently noticing.
 
What is aware of every thought that arises?

What I actually AM, and have always been, has no need of anything. New MJ Awakening Blog

Salvation is the mind’s idea of the journey to self-realization based on the belief that I am broken/incomplete as I am and need saving.

But can I actually find this broken/incomplete entity that needs saving? Or has it always been an imagining that was innocently being believed, but was never true. That what I actually AM, and have always been, has no need of anything.

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

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…

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

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.
