YOU are not any thought… New MJ Awakening Blog

YOU are not any thought, which is why looking to the mind to tell you what you are leads to confusion and suffering.

There is no actual separate entity in existence, because it’s the One Universe doing everything. New MJ Awakening Blog

universal intelligence

“We can never figure out the origins of the Universe because we are the Universe itself.

Whose asking the question why are we here? It’s the Universe itself asking that question and that’s the humor of it all.”

-Jeffrey Fidel, MD

MICHAEL: So the Universe itself is both the asker and answerer of every question that has ever arisen. And that is why there is no actual separate entity in existence, because it’s the One Universe doing everything.

Michael Shum: Michael, the intelligence itself is manifesting an acceleration of self-recognition, and all of us are going along for a ride! Yeehaw!

Michael Jeffreys: Because we are that intelligence! But until we realize that we cling to control which causes suffering. I mean, imagine trying to control something you are not in control of… how do you not suffer?! 🙂 🙂 🙂

What does, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” mean? New MJ Awakening Blog

Q: What does, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” mean?

MICHAEL: It means being able to discriminate between what my ego wants/demands/desires and what is actually, presently happening/unfolding, however it appears. The former is my will, the latter Thy will.

It’s resting as the Whole Ocean, rather than identifying as the wave with an agenda. It’s going with the flow of Life, of what is, rather than trying to tell Life how the moment should be. It’s a joyous surrendering to what is. It’s peace and rest regardless of circumstances.

THE ONE

We do not know one another, He alone knows us all.
-Anandamayi Ma

MICHAEL: What you think of as yourself is not yourself, and what you think of as the other is not the other, for there is only ever The One.

That which is Birthless/Deathless appears illusorily in the form of the world… New MJ Awakening Blog

“Nothing whatever is born or dies anywhere at any time. It is Brahman alone appearing illusorily in the form of the world.”  

-Yoga Vasishtha Sara

MICHAEL: To the mind this makes no sense because the mind IS duality, and as such can only see things in terms of separation. In other words, everything being THE ONE (a/k/a Brahman) simply doesn’t compute to the mind.

Thus, Self-Realization is not for the mind since it cannot be figured out or understood intellectually. Something in you either “groks” the eternal Truth or doesn’t. But either way, you’re still not, nor have you ever been, other than THAT.

Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. New MJ Awakening Blog

It’s not that there has ever been a separate, solid “you.” It’s that the same thoughts have been IDENTIFIED WITH repetitively for many years/decades by the impersonal light of ever-present formless Consciousness.
 
Nothing about “you” is personal because there is no person there. Feelings, yes. Thoughts, yes. Sensations, yes. But an actual separate entity, no.
 
Thus, any rejection of anything that arises is to fight oneself. A self that doesn’t exist. Being is being with whatever arises without judgment.
 
Can you imagine if a tree believed the thought, “I like my leaves, but my bark is so ugly!” The tree would be rejecting a part of it self out of sheer ignorance. However, trees don’t do this. Just humans.

Q: Are thoughts real? New MJ Awakening Blog

Q: Are thoughts real?

MICHAEL: What is truly real is what flows through all beings AT ALL TIMES. So what is same there is same here is same everywhere. (Let that sink in.)

It’s just not noticed when we are in thought, in imagination.Thoughts are not real because they can flow to one, but not to another. You can have a thought that I don’t have and vice-versa. Because thoughts are in time, they come and go, i.e., there’s a time when they are and a time when they are not, they are not truly real.

What’s real never comes or goes… YOU.

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? 

 

Mind can only ever give you a perspective, but no TRUTH… New MJ Awakening Blog

Perspective

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