hearing from love

HEARING FROM LOVE

“But, you say, suppose you have not yet reached the stage where you are able actually to hear a voice speaking within and to know it as one assuming to teach or lead you.

Know that it is not an actual voice such
as your physical ears hear that speaks; for
are not every desire, every urge, every hope,
longing, fear, discouragement, anxiety, regret,
voices heard just as surely and effectively
as audible voices?

And while all such are voices I use to
teach you the right from the wrong way,
yet My Voice, that you long so to hear and
to be always sure is Mine, you will never
truly hear and know until you let Love
abide and rule in your heart.

For Love alone can clear away that in your heart and consciousness which causes you to listen to the voice of self, thus preventing your hearing Me when I speak.”

-Joseph S. Benner

Am I seeing THIS moment through the mind or Silence? New MJ Awakening Blog
February 27, 2019

god in silence

AM I SEEING THIS MOMENT THROUGH THE MIND’S IMAGES, BELIEFS AND FEARS OR IN SILENCE? (aka, YOU CAN’T DANCE AT TWO WEDDINGS.)

“Your mind has to be truly silent, empty of thoughts and concepts. It has to become a state of receptivity. Complete silence. While you are looking out into whatever happens to be your current scenery with a false ‘knowing’ that you are ‘short of money’ or ‘lacking in health’ or ‘lonely’ or ‘limited’ in some way your mind is busy entertaining belief-images of its own making.

While it’s doing so Spiritual Allness cannot penetrate. It forever wants to. It is forever ready to. It is forever pushing at your consciousness trying to burst through. But your mind is busy with images, fears and schemes of its own making, thereby shutting Spirit out.”

-Paul F. Gorman

MICHAEL: This one is profoundly deep. If you go to thought you have no chance. Best to just sit with it and see if something clicks.

“I and my father are one.” -Jesus

EVERYTHING is God. There is only God. The “idea” of a personal or impersonal God is purely a mind creation/imaginary division. This is God right now writing these words. This is God right now reading these words. Where is God not? (Or, as Daniel Litvak put it, “… give us the definition of what isn’t God…”).

Nonduality… Advaita means not two.

“There is only Brahman. The world is an illusion. The world is Brahman.”

This is too simple, too immediate, for the dualistic mind whose world is made of separation/division, “It’s this, not this.” etc..

P.S. COMMENT: “What about the voice in my head is that god”

MICHAEL: Yes (what else??), but the “one” who thinks it’s about him/her doesn’t exist.

Thinking or silence.

If I am thinking I am not silent.

If I am silent I am not thinking.

Whatever thought says you are, you truly aren’t.
You are much, much greater.
Whatever thought says someone else is, they’re truly not.
They’re much, much greater.
Whatever thought says is happening, truly isn’t.
It’s much, much greater.

Any other nature being delusion… New MJ Awakening Blog

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.

Part of awakening is understanding that most of your friends and family are not interested in Self-realization. New MJ Awakening Blog

dreaming-of-riches-objects

Part of awakening is understanding that most of the people around you… family, friends, co-workers, school mates, etc. are not interested in Self-realization. For them, food, sex, money, entertainment, parties, good times, career achievements, finding their significant other, material objects and the pursuit there of, etc. is what life is all about.

Good for them. But for those seeking freedom, God, Self-realization, etc., achieving worldly “success” doesn’t do it. For “hard core seekers,” Who/what am I? Who/what is God? And who/what is the world? are the questions that will not leave us alone until a fully satisfactory answer has been found.

For this, we cannot look outside us for the answers. We must turn within and begin to notice “something” (although it’s not a “thing”, an object, which is why it’s so elusive!) that before we did not notice. Something that is ever-present, yet never speaks. Something that is everywhere, yet never draws attention to itself. It is looking out your eyes every second of the body’s existence, yet amazingly we overlook it, as our attention is continuously drawn to objects.

The seer is aware of objects… but what is aware of the seer?

God is NOT in heaven. God is what’s looking out your eyes… new MJ Awakening Blog

gods eye

God is NOT in the sky/heaven or in some mystical place or other dimension that we can’t know or in some book or video. Where is God then? What we refer to as “God” is literally what’s looking out your eyes right now!! LITERALLY.

The mind cannot see this, but it can be intuited/realized in your own direct experience. And when you see this for yourself, when it dawns on you that what I am saying is 100% true and indeed the case, you may find yourself laughing/smiling and feeling at peace for no particular reason!

You simply and deeply realize (honestly, for the first time in your life!) that the Truth, Source, God, etc. is what You are and have been all along! That’s the Cosmic joke! There is nothing to get because You are ALREADY THAT which you have been seeking. You are already home because you have never gone anywhere.
