All human beings are mummers… New MJ Awakening Blog
April 19, 2018

there's nothing behind the mask

 

All human beings are mummers.

Does not the baby mimic the sounds it hears?

Do we not all mimic words from someone else’s language we were taught to mimic?

What do you know that nobody taught you?

For that you cannot use any word.

What is aware of THOUGHT? New MJ Awakening Blog
April 14, 2018

Just-Float1

As I tune into/feel my mind’s attention, I notice it jumps around like a frog from one water lily to the next, i.e., one thought to the next. Endlessly.
 
What does this have to do with me? Do I jump around? Have I ever moved? Or is everything else moving but me?

In order for me to truly know you, to be what you always are, I must know/be SILENCE.

In order for you to truly know me, to be what I always am, you must know/be SILENCE.

SILENCE is the bridgeless bridge every moment, regardless of appearances.

SILENCE… where the seemingly infinite is revealed to be ONE.

It’s like you are pure SPACE… New MJ Awakening Blog

It’s like you are pure SPACE, and all of existence is spontaneously appearing and disappearing within you. Including ALL thoughts, feelings, memories, sensations, your body, other bodies, the sky, the ocean, air, rocks, trees, everything… the SPACE always IS to such an extent that it’s not noticed… until it IS.

“I wish my mind would leave me alone.”

Really? Why don’t you stop pestering the mind? 

Why don’t you leave it alone?

You say you can’t? Who can’t?

silence

When it comes to SILENCE, I sell out too soon. I never get to her deeper secrets because as soon as ANY thought shows up, I forget all about her. ❤

Whenever I am in mental pain, anguish, suffering, story, wishing someone had acted differently, I know I am in mind and not silent PRESENCE.

The confusion lies in forgetting that I AM always prior to ANY thought that arises. New MJ Awakening Blog

EXPLORING THOUGHTS

The confusion lies in forgetting that I AM always prior to ANY thought that arises.

Otherwise, what would know/be aware of the thought’s existence?

(E.g., I must be in the room prior to you to know that you just walked into the room!)

I must feel here/now directly, bodily, that I AM always observing the coming and going of thoughts, some which feel very good, some of which feel very bad, and some which I don’t care either way about.

I notice I AM addicted to feeling good.

I notice that I only want positive thoughts/feelings and I don’t want negative thoughts/feelings.

I also notice I am still interested in thoughts.

However, authentic Self Realization is not about fixing thoughts to make them better.

It’s about realizing that the one who is interested in thoughts isn’t me.

It’s about realizing that the one who is interested in thoughts doesn’t exist.

There is only the one Self. The one Self is all that exists… everywhere and at all times.

“There is no ‘Person-Mind’… there is only thoughts that are arising that have been believed by You to create a dream.” -Nazarah Merah. New MJ Awakening Blog

Evolving Self Fragmentation

“I realized that this feeling I’ve always had of being a person, was never the feeling of being a person… I just mistook it as that. It was me all along, me right here, Me… I was always Me, looking for Me outside of Me… but here I was all along, knowing I was Me but thinking that the Me was a person!! How did I miss this?? How did I not notice me, there’s only me, I only ever feel me!!”

-Nita McIntyre

“The ‘Person-Mind’ is just a pointer to point out the thoughts that are creating an illusion of confusion, pain and suffering that were never the truth of what you are. There is no ‘Person-Mind’, there is no separate self…. There is only thoughts that are arising that have been believed by You to create a dream. Stop believing any and all thoughts. Just Be… and the illusion will be revealed.”

-Nazarah Merah

 

MICHAEL: I found these two quotes from Nita and Nazarah to be particularly direct and powerful in seeing that what you and I think of as being a person, isn’t being a person at all!

The best your mind can ever do is IMAGINE you’re a separate person… but this imagining never actually achieves the status of Reality! You never have actually changed… that’s the illusion… it’s the mind that is confused because it can never become what you ALREADY are… but that doesn’t stop it from trying!!

So funny when you see this…because you go from irritation and annoyance to love and compassion when you see how hard it’s trying to be You, to be immortal, to be Reality.

It’s YOU (The One Infinite) pretending/thinking/imaging what it would be like to be a person!!! There is a night and day difference between imagining you’re a separate person and actually being a separate person. Noticing this one distinction can make all the difference. You’ll know when you see this clearly because as Nazarah says, it’s soooooo shocking!!?

One moment you’re trying so hard to “get it right,” and the next you are stunned as you realize there never was a person. It’s all You pretending… everything is YOU AS THAT!!! This is why (imo) Nazarah is always laughing… because you are constantly amazed at everything YOU appear to do in this wild and crazy dream… it’s ALL YOU. That’s the Cosmic joke!!
