“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.

The “I” that is seeking has only ever been a thought… be conscious of silence. New MJ Awakening Blog

The “I” that is seeking, trying to find its true nature, trying to find God has only ever been a thought. –Michael Jeffreys

“Self-truth-knowing is found in the silence of your own consciousness.”
W. Norman Cooper (from, Experience Your Perfect Soul)

MICHAEL: Notice where it’s not, and will never, ever, throughout all of existence be found: in thought.

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.

Your country, language, religion, age, color, matter not! Consciousness is the same consciousness in all beings. New MJ Awakening Blog

diverstiy-people-concept-world-map

It doesn’t matter what country you come from, what language you speak, or what your religion is or isn’t. It doesn’t matter your age, whether you’re 5, 19, 48, 73 or 99! It doesn’t matter whether you are black, white, brown, yellow, green, purple or blue!

Consciousness is the same consciousness in all beings. It’s what’s looking out all beings eyes, whether they realize it or not. If you go to mind, you will be in whatever belief system/political culture your mind-body believes/was raised in.

But, Truth, ever-present Consciousness, is the same One in All and is inherently free of all qualities, needs, desires or limits. Its eternal nature is peace, regardless of the comings and goings of temporary circumstances.

Value and importance are not “out there”… new MJ Awakening Blog
June 21, 2017

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.

 

What observes the moving mind? When is it not NOW? new MJ Awakening Blog

blade of grass in sun rays

Mind is movement. What observes the moving mind? Take a look for yourself. That which observes or is aware of the moving mind pictures doesn’t move. And so we rest as the ever-present stillness/silent aware observer.

And if we get pulled back into the mind’s tumult out of habit, what then? Notice this and come back to the ever-present stillness/silent aware observer. It’s here right now as you read these words… notice this. It’s our natural state of effortless being, like when we were babies before we learned language.

With language, thinking/thought stories/concepts (and thus imagined separation, i.e., ‘me’ and ‘other’) showed up and began to dominate the naturally pure, attribute-less, luminous consciousness/presence that we inherently are.

And so we ‘return’ to the ‘place’ we never left and discover it is the same now as when our body was born. Although the mind pretends otherwise, it’s only ever now.

Like when a movie shows scenes from a character’s past, it’s actually being shown to the audience when? Now… only ever now. Likewise, if the movie character is imagining an event in the future, when is the audience seeing it? Now… only ever now. And so we rest in/as the silent awake presence that is timelessly here/now.

Any other nature being delusion… New MJ Awakening Blog
May 11, 2017

shiva snow moutain

One without a second. Not two. That which is changeless, timeless, and immortal. That which does not come or go. That which is not a thought, idea, opinion or belief. That which does not depend on thought to exist, but which thought depends on to be “known,” since a thought cannot know of its own existence. This is Your only nature; any other nature being delusion.

A good first step in “waking up”… new MJ Awakening Blog
March 7, 2017

life

A good first step in “waking up” is loosening your identification with what you think you know. The mind claims to know (with a self imposed sense of certainty!?) so many things, but in actuality nothing can be truly known. Why? Because the Source of what all “THIS” is is unknowable! Where does everything come from? Where is everything happening or unfolding? Where does everything go? Any answer is only a concept, and that’s all the mind can ever provide.

The mind is an appearance in THIS, an object; You are what is aware of the inert mind. Thus, You can begin to see that you have NEVER been the mind, but always what is aware of it.

And so, we can begin to meet this moment as it is: raw, naked, a swirl of energies coming and going spontaneously and all completely un-pin-down-able.

As Eckhart says, “You don’t have a life, You ARE life.” Meaning, the idea of “having a life” is separation: there’s a “me” who has a “life.” But this is false because it’s two, duality. Reality is one without a second or non-dual. And you are THAT.

Your true self isn’t an object… new MJ Awakening Blog
February 25, 2017

shankara-and-krishna

What we seek is our true self. However, our true self is not an object, but that which knows or is aware of all objects. We are subtler than objects, so we are aware of objects, but objects are not aware of us. For example, you are aware of your body but your body is not aware of you. If you changed your name, would your body ‘know’ this? No. But You would. What is this You that knows or is aware? It’s obviously not a thought, since thoughts are another ‘thing’ we are aware of.

Has not this awareness been present throughout your existence? What else can you say this about?? Without awareness, you couldn’t ‘know’ anything. So awareness is prior to knowledge, even prior to space and time, for without awareness what would ‘know of’ space and time?

Notice that you don’t have to ‘do anything’ to become aware. You are already aware. Simply stop and recognize what has always already been so: that the belief that ‘I’ am a body/mind is just that, a belief. What is aware of this belief? You! But not ‘you’ as an ever-changing self-image (another object), but as you truly are right here/now… ever-present, limitless, attributeless, causeless awareness.

What is always looking out your eyes is not a “me”… new MJ Awakening pic quote

And then, in a moment of clarity, it hits you… that which is always looking

out my eyes is not a “me.” “Me” is a thought. A thought is not what is seeing.
