That YOU believe you were born is your bondage. New MJ Awakening Blog
July 18, 2020

“The concept of being born as an individual with a
body and mind has been so strongly hammered into
you that you simply refuse to accept anything that
challenges it.” -Pradeep Apte

MICHAEL: The belief/feeling/sense that I am a separate, independent “doer” is so ingrained in us that the idea of even challenging it seems absurd to most. Which is why so few actually awaken. We have a love for this story of “me” and we don’t want to part with it, even if it means continuing to suffering.

There is no freedom in any story. Freedom, You, are PRIOR to all stories. See thru this illusory waking dream; witness it play out as it plays out. You are not in this! You are, and have always been, eternally free.

Michael Jeffreys “Realizing YOU are already formless and free.” 7-15-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. YOU are timeless and formless!!
Identifying as a form, any form, is a limitation
and thus unnatural and therefore uncomfortable.

2. All forms are limited (because they have boundaries).

ONLY THE FORMLESS IS UNLIMITED

Therefore if you want to be truly free
you have to become formless. How?
By realizing that you’ve never been a form.

3. “If you hold on to the form then you’ll pick up the limitations of that form.” -Mooji

But it’s not so easy because you’re already convinced you’re a form! It’s the most powerful belief that you have, that you’re a “something.”

4. The problem for the seeker is he’s seeking freedom AS A “FORM.” Now how can something that’s a form, that has limitations, be UNLIMITED? It can’t. So the only solution must be that you’re ALREADY UNLIMITED, but you don’t know it. “You are what you seek.”

5. Your suffering is your grace because the suffering can get so intense that you give up (dissolve).

6. Self-realization isn’t a doing… “you” can’t “do” unlimited.

7. The important point here is, you’ve NEVER been an object. So it’s not like you’re this me that has to become free. You’re freedom that has been hypnotized by a dream of limitation.

8. All forms are limited. All forms are born and die. That’s why if we take ourselves as ANYTHING, sooner or later we suffer.

9. Part of the me’s seeking includes wanting approval, i.e. outside validation. So when you believe you’re an object, then you want approval from other objects.

10. Everything in the phenomenal world is a limitation. You are unlimited. What’s unlimited going to do with limitation?

11. If freedom is what you say you truly want in your heart of hearts, then that’s it. It doesn’t matter what the mind says–you’re only interested in freedom, period.

12. ALAN: “And as you said last week, which I love, is that Freedom is always here, now… always.

Michael Jeffreys “THAT which is PRIOR to all stories.” 7-8-20 Satsang video

Michael Jeffreys “THAT which is PRIOR to all stories.” 7-8-20 Satsang

SATSANG NOTES

1. We’re not “attending” to this moment naked.
We’re bringing an entire identity from the past into this moment
and it pollutes the moment.

2. The thing to notice is how, if we keep starting from story,
there’s just more story… that there’s no freedom in that.

3. What is THIS moment like when there’s no history, no past,
no future, no story, no knowing anything? (contemplate deeply)

4. The me is story; story is the me. The two are one. What we are pointing to at satsang is PRIOR to all stories. Beingness doesn’t need any words. It’s prior to words.

5. What makes you so sure it’s “your” story?
(contemplate deeply)

6. THAT which knows everything you’ve ever known isn’t knowable.
Thus anything you know isn’t IT.

7. The me is a construct. It’s a mental knot–an energy that is constricted and it goes in a loop. That’s why you can’t get free of the me. So if you notice, I don’t give you any perscriptions for how to deal with your me. We’re interested in seeing that you’re not the me and never were.

8. The me wants awakening… but it wants to be there for it!?

9. The biggest “yeah but” that I hear at satsang is, “I’m not there yet.” INQUIRE: Is that a story?

10. Beingness never goes anywhere. You never had it, so you can never lose it, because YOU ARE IT.

11. ALAN: Do you have a definition for Freedom?
MICHAEL: The end of seeking.

12. If something is dependent on something else, can it be Free?

13. Before anything can be known, Beingness must already be present to know it.

14. Wei Wu Wei: Actionless action; action without a doer.

15. Where were you before the body was born? (contemplate deeply)

16. MICHAEL: You’re not the body because the body’s the body!
DIANE: It goes back to that saying, “Anything you can perceive is not you.”

“Whatever you think is not you.
You cannot think about yourself.
Perceive this clearly and be thought free.”

“You are what you are seeking.
Your true being exists prior to the arising of any concept.”

“There’s only one thing to be understood.
And that is that you are the formless, timeless, unborn.”

AWARENESS

What’s aware of seeing isn’t seeing.
What’s aware of hearing isn’t hearing.
What’s aware of thinking isn’t thinking…
