“Have you ever met this me that claims to be you?” New MJ Awakening Blog
April 4, 2020

notes from satsang

From the 4/1/20 online Satsang w/ Michael

STEVEN: The me believes that unless I’m valued I’ll be abandoned, I won’t survive. So I must do anything I can to be valued.

MICHAEL: It’s trying to reinforce itself. But let me ask you a question point blank: Have you ever met this me that claims to be you?

STEVEN: Talk to him all the time (laughs).

MICHAEL: Yes, but can you find it? Can you shake its hand?

STEVEN: No

MICHAEL: I’m not saying there can’t be a feeling of a me. What I am saying is you don’t know what that is. The brain is wired to believe that’s it. That’s that feeling that it’s us, because the brain is saying, “Yes, this is me, this is us, this is it.”

And what you begin to do if you are on the spiritual path is to question that, “Gosh, is that what I really am?” because there’s been a lot of suffering over here for a lot of years. It hasn’t worked out so well, this me business.

(Silence)

THIS HAS NO AGENDA… ME’S AGENDA IS SUFFERING

“It is absolutely known (Because it’s all that is it’s impossible to miss, but because the mind can’t do anything with all that is, it overlooks it in hopes of someday finding a better this. -MJ). And it’s completely benign, this is totally benign, because it’s completely free, it’s completely neutral.

This doesn’t have an agenda. It’s only you who has an agenda. Each human being has an agenda. This doesn’t have an agenda at all! It has no direction, it has no desire, it doesn’t have any morality… it’s empty of all values.

Whatever criteria you want to bring to it, it’s only human beings that have brought that to this. And each human being brings its own unique story, and imposes that on this, that it should be a certain way. And you could say that is the root of all suffering.”

-Tim Cliss

THE ILLUSION OF KNOWING

“That’s what the seeking was, that was what my desire was to find out, to know it. I wanted to know. And I’ll know when I know. And all I want to tell you is you can’t know. There will be no knowing. This is not knowable.

You can name experiences, but you can’t know what they are. They’re not knowable. You can know pain, but you don’t know what that is–it’s just pain. You can know love, but you don’t know what love is. Experiences are not an explanation. There isn’t an explanation for this.”

-Tim Cliss

What is DUALITY? NONDUALITY? New MJ Awakening Blog
March 27, 2020

everything and nothing empty space

DUALITY:

Me “knows” X, one “thing” knows another “thing,” this is true, this is not true, this is right, this is wrong, two, separation, this and that, other… requires language.

Q: “Lots of suffering going on with all of this uncertainty over the virus. How do we witness the suffering without suffering?” New MJ Awakening Blog
March 14, 2020

health-coronavirus-southkorea

LINDSEY: Lots of suffering going on with all of this uncertainty over the virus. How do we witness the suffering without suffering? Feels difficult in this moment.

MICHAEL: Wholeness is always already the case and the virus doesn’t change that. Nothing does. However, as long as the me is there, there will be suffering because the me takes it personally. But nothing is personal. Nothing. All is a passing appearance, but the me takes it to be real because it takes itself to be real. The me is an appearance and has no power at all.

We’ll go into this more at next Sunday’s 3/22, 6pm (pst) online satsang. And if that’s too far off, I am available for one-on-one sessions via skype, zoom or phone (by donation).

Email me at: mjeffreys1@roadrunner.com

p.s. 

JILL: People have died/ are dying from this virus….so why wouldn’t there be suffering by those affected?

MICHAEL: If suffering is arising then that’s what is. But it’s not “your suffering”… the suffering is not personal. But the me takes everything personally. It has no choice.

JILL: OK that makes sense…thank you!!
