SELF-REALIZATION: SEEING THE ONE IN ALL

The supreme duty, the real calling of every man and woman as a human being is to realize his Self, to realize the One manifested in all. Among the countless hosts of different creatures of the universe, the human being alone is endowed with the capacity to become aware of his own Divinity, to know THAT which lies concealed within all the infinite forms and shapes and modes of being.

-Anandamayi Ma

MICHAEL: In order to become one pointed on God and forget yourself,
repeat this short, but powerful mantra throughout the day/night as often as possible:

*BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

(*And if the word Brahman doesn’t resonate for you, pick one that does. For example: God, Source, Infinite-Intelligence, Life, The-Tao, All-that-is, etc.

Because no word is “it”, any word that points to everything and nothing, that which has no limitation, no qualities, no beginning or ending, will work. Keep repeating, with feeling, until the mind begins to accept it at which point it will begin to quiet down.)

Anandamayi MA

Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982)

DELIGHTING IN THE PLAY OF BRAHMAN AS ALL FORMS

“I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe. All plants and animals, all human beings, all higher mind-bodies are playing about in this garden in various ways each has its own uniqueness and beauty; their presence and variety give me great delight. Every one of you add with your special feature to the glory of the garden.”

-Anandamayi Ma

FROM HATE TO LOVE

“The positive proof that the aspirant is centered in God is that he ceases to hate any person or object, and that good qualities such as love, forgiveness, patience, forbearance go on increasing in him. When this change takes place in an aspirant, he will come to see that the One Brahman pervades each and every form…”

-Anandamayi Ma

TURNING THE MIND INWARD

“The same mind that identifies itself with the body can be turned towards the Eternal…”

-Anandamayi Ma

MICHAEL: You have forgotten your true identity. Your attention is constantly on the temporary. Put it on what is looking out your eyes, what is ever-present, and remember that is what you are, what you’ve always been.

 

Hearing from LOVE. New MJ Awakening Blog

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
(from, Brotherhood)

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
(from, The Miracle Self)

 

MICHAEL: What does Silence FEEL like?

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.

The Realization, for no one, is that EVERYTHING is God. New MJ Awakening Blog

“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.

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
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.

Michael Jeffreys
