Question-Mark

Every THOUGHT is a conclusion.

CHANNANAGOWD: Only when it is possessed.

MICHAEL: 


 

JAZ: Yes..  Oh.. my “Yes” is conclusion too 

MICHAEL: Exactly Jaz! It’s quite stunning when you actually see this, because when that habitual/unconscious addiction of needing to conclude anything about anything is seen through, there’s just what IS.

The simplicity of what IS is so simple that conclusions no longer apply or make any sense… I mean, what can you honestly conclude about something that never stops changing?

Perspective

Mind is another word for perspective.
 
TRUTH is not in any perspective.

Noticing PRESENCE never goes anywhere… New MJ Awakening Blog
May 11, 2018

Noticing PRESENCE never goes anywhere

Does any word, sound or thought alter, add to or take away from the Presence you have always been and are right now?

Are you not already Presence before the next word, sound or thought shows up?

Are you not already Presence during the word, sound or thought?

Are you not already Presence after the word, sound or thought leaves?

Have you ever been anything besides Presence?

Michael Jeffreys

Comments

ERIC: No but it does feel to me like it is possible to be more or less present. And more presence comes with more feelings of aliveness and joy. I could be using the wrong words to describe this though…

MICHAEL: Since there is only Presence that is ever truly present, anything after “no but…” (and including “no but”!) is a mental imagining or exploration that we are interested in, as Nazarah says. Nothing wrong with it… but it’s not Presence only knowing itself.

RICK: “Isness”……..is not the mind, as some “teachers” have not clarified this distinction.

MICHAEL: That’s it Rick… there is nothing else to clarify. ISness is not mind and mind is not ISness. The noticing of this is the discrimination that vedanta is always going on about… noticing what changes versus what doesn’t. Thoughts are never not changing, so they are never truly Present.

Whatever arises is NOT you.

How do you know?

You don’t come and go.

Michael Jeffreys

P.S. This is what MUST be nailed down. If you think you are coming and going or changing, then you know you are in imagination and not infinite presence, which never moves, comes or goes. It simply IS. Everything else changes but YOU.

Salvation is the mind’s idea of the journey to self-realization based on the belief that I am broken/incomplete as I am and need saving.

But can I actually find this broken/incomplete entity that needs saving? Or has it always been an imagining that was innocently being believed, but was never true. That what I actually AM, and have always been, has no need of anything.

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?

chess pieces in sink

Hi beautiful being!!

In case you were wondering what an after-school chess teacher who teaches at 6 schools a week does during spring break…

Well, one of the things I do is wash off hundreds of grimy chess pieces to get them back to their original clean condition! 

After draining the dirty soapy water, I refilled the sink with clean water when I suddenly noticed that the water was “holding” or providing the “space” for all the pieces… just like Awareness effortlessly holds all bodies/everything in the space of now!!

Truth cannot be accepted or rejected.

Truth cannot be lost or found.

Truth cannot be held or dropped.

Truth cannot come or go.

Heart Connected Leaders and Confidence. New MJ Awakening Blog
February 25, 2018

heart centered leadership

“The leaders have to be very authentic and open with themselves and in expressing in that way. So that’s the new type of leadership that we’re embodying.

A lot of the beings I see that are a part of this, they’re already heart centered beings; a lot of times it’s really about stepping into a new level of confidence within themselves and trusting themselves.

So, it’s not just like, ‘oh, I’m so confident.’ It’s just about trusting your heart, trusting what’s coming through your heart each moment, and you’re letting that guide you. And so that’s what we are moving into, heart centered leadership.”

-Nazarah Merah

Facebook Question

TOM: Michael, how would you say acceptance of “not knowing” relates to what Nazarah is saying here? Thanks.

MICHAEL: Hi Tom. Mind is fear based, heart is love based. “Not knowing” opens up the space so the heart can come in. If you go straight to mind, you by-pass the heart and thus are stuck in a self made, fear based, imaginary world.

It’s when the wave wakes up and remembers it’s the ocean that its allegiance shifts automatically from thinking in terms of being an individual, separate wave, to now knowing itself in terms of literally being the whole ocean.

Thus, our actions, words and deeds (whether or not we are consciously aware of it), always reflect where we are coming from every second… head or heart, fear or love, me or we.
