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
November 1, 2017

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.

 

If we are starting from/in mind, we have already gone astray… New MJ Awakening Blog
September 10, 2017

street gutter water

Are You your mind (and its lifetime of conditioned beliefs and seeking for happiness in a future experience) or THAT which is AWARE of the mind (and its lifetime of conditioned beliefs and seeking for happiness in a future experience)?

The difference between believing you are the mind versus seeing/being AWARE of the mind and its incessant seeking is everything.

Peace/Happiness (despite the mind’s claims/protests/stories is here/now (where else?) as everything (the totality of whatever IS) and not in some specific imagined future experience.

Thus, if we are starting from/in mind, we have already gone astray because we have left the only “thing” that ever truly IS.

Q: What does ‘Awareness watching Awareness’ mean? New MJ Awakening Blog
July 21, 2017

Q: What does ‘Awareness watching Awareness’ mean?

MICHAEL: It means to remove your ATTENTION from ‘objects,’ i.e., persons, places, things, thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations, etc. (where it habitually/automatically goes for almost everyone on the planet pretty much non-stop). And to place your ATTENTION on THAT which is silently AWARE (pure Awareness) of everything you seem to be aware of.

For example, as you read these words, notice that ‘something’ must be aware of them or how would you even know of their very existence?? Right now, notice this ever-present-formless-silent Awareness and let your attention rest on ‘it.’ ‘It’ is not a ‘thing,’ and thus has no perceivable qualities, yet it’s what allows for the knowing/perceiving of anything! In other words, are these words aware of themselves? No. Then what IS? (And if a thought says, “Me, I am!”, then what is aware of this ‘me’ thought??)

Hint: Be still/silent and ‘allow’ ‘your’ impersonal Awareness to become aware of itself. If you find yourself going back to a thought/object, gently bring your attention back to the Awareness itself. This is the ultimate meditation and can be done anywhere, anytime, and ‘you’ cannot ‘do it’ too much!

 

“You,” like the Michael Richard’s character “Kramer” on Seinfeld, don’t actually exist. New MJ Awakening Blog
July 7, 2017

Michael-Richards-Kramer

Reality is one. Nondual. Not two. Hence there is nothing separate or other than it. Reality/Consciousness/Awareness is always ever itself. Whole, full, unlimited, free… nothing lacking or separate. There is nothing “personal” in Awareness. All projections are nothing more than an appearance… the Ocean appearing as the wave. “You” the wave, are an appearance of the one, singular, Ocean.

In actuality, “you” have never done anything… how can an appearance do anything?? “You” can only APPEAR to do something, just like a character played by an actor can appear to do many things. E.g., “Kramer” on Seinfeld appeared to get into many sticky situations, but does “Kramer” actually exist? No! All actions/words of the fictitious character were provided 100% by Michael Richards, not “Kramer.” In actuality, there is no “Kramer.”

In the same way, “You” are being done. “You, the wave” only appear to do things. In Reality, the Ocean, Consciousness, is all/does all. See clearly that this “you/wave” is a temporary projection and not what you truly are or have ever been.

In Reality you are (and have always been) pure freedom, pure love, pure peace, pure joy, pure bliss, pure rest, pure relaxation, pure lightness of being. See this clearly, with your entire Being, and it’s the end of confusion, the end of struggle, the end of suffering… Hallelujah! Amen.

Q: I don’t yet see clearly how I am only awareness. New MJ Awakening Blog

Q: I don’t yet see clearly how I am only awareness.

MICHAEL: Who is this “I” that is Awareness?

Is there an “I” who is busy being Awareness 24/7 or is there only ever unbounded, unlimited, ever-free Awareness that is aware of an arising “I” thought that claims to be “me”?

If it’s really “you,” than what is aware of it??

p.s. Do not go to conceptual mind for “the answer.”

Being Awareness only is being my true nature. New MJ Awakening Blog

self awareness

What is spontaneously, ceaselessly and effortlessly seeing out your eyes right now this very moment?? Find out! Get to know IT, for IT is YOU!!! How? By moving your attention from the content, the objects of perception, to pure perception itself.

Become consciously aware of Awareness and nothing else!!! 

Michael Jeffreys

p.s. Being Awareness only is being my true nature.

Value and importance are not “out there”… new MJ Awakening Blog

Value and importance are not “out there” with the “thing,” but here where Awareness itself is being aware. -William Samuel

MICHAEL: The illusion is that the “person, place or thing” that we are interested in “contains” the feeling or value we are placing on it. But in actuality it is ALL coming from us. Any “person, place, or thing” is inherently devoid of meaning. It is we who “project” any meaning on to it.

For example, we are so excited about getting a new book from Amazon, sometimes even paying extra for faster shipping!, and then a few months later, the book is up on the shelf, essentially forgotten about as we have already moved on to the next “thing.”
What happened? If the excitement was actually contained in the book itself, it would always make us happy. But our own experience (if we are honest) is that a “person, place, or thing” can seem to make us happy for a little while, but then it fades.

So, was the happiness, value, importance truly in the object, or was it us all along? Other than pure Awareness, what else is present to even know or be aware of anything??

p.s. And this includes the mental object in our mind called, “me.” Its “value” too… is it not constantly fluctuating? Than the “me” (the egoic sense of imagined separate self) must also be a “thing” and thus inherently meaningless. When all identification with objects ceases, that leaves only silent, free, whole, loving, ever-present Awareness as our one and only nature.
