The INTELLECT is Your servant and thus the voice in the head is the voice of the servant, not You. New MJ Awakening Blog

voice in the head not you

THE INTELLECT IS YOUR SERVANT AND THUS THE VOICE IN THE HEAD IS THE VOICE OF THE SERVANT, NOT YOU 

“First, remember who I am, I who am in all
men, Who am That which speaks through
all men, Who am the Self of you who read,
dwelling deep within the heart—the innermost
of you, and Who seek to come forth as the
Christ and to show Myself—your Highest
Self—to all men.

Remember that I always speak from out the
heart, and not from the head, the intellect
being but My servant, My interpreter.

But when the servant acknowledges not his Master,
having grown proud, and deems himself above
his station and tries to impress others with his
knowledge and importance, then you may
know why it is so hard to hear My voice and
to know when it is I speaking, and why you
become so often confused and so uncertain what to do.

Therefore it is most necessary that you
determine whence comes the voice or voices
that so confuse and disturb you.”

-Joseph S. Benner

“Truth is before the intellect, before thought. Truth has nothing to do with the intellect or thought.” -Paul Gorman

MICHAEL: Because there is only Truth.

Q: How can I notice/become aware of the “me”?

MICHAEL: It’s what’s constantly trying to “fix” the moment.

What is your relationship to THOUGHT?

Meditate/ponder/contemplate this deeply…

Your answer is everything for nothing will have a greater impact on your present moment experience!

CHANDY: There is no “You”. Only thoughts. The imagined “You” is the only cause of all the sorrows.

What does it mean to be Awareness aware of Awareness?

MICHAEL: It means to NOTICE that my incessant and habitual movement is toward THOUGHTS. Constantly. Endlessly. Since the beginning of time. Thought after thought after thought. Are the cows home yet? 

Awareness becomes aware of itself, pure aliveness, when it notices its own pure unmoving, unchanging, not going anywhere, not doing anything, yet everywhere and doing everything, pure presence… pure love… the heart of stillness.

human life cycle

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.

“Ah, I am in resistance to my resistance!” New MJ Awakening Blog

Suffering is resisting what is.

And if you are resisting what is, then that is what is…

“Ah, I am in resistance to my resistance!”

Silently noticing this brings peace.

-Michael Jeffreys

 

FACEBOOK QUESTION: I find it difficult at times to discern between “what is” and “what appears to be.” Am I not only experiencing my response to “what appears to be,” rather than to “what is”? Any input on how to tell the difference here?

MICHAEL: It’s actually much simpler than that. Whatever is showing up, that’s what is. So, if resistance is showing up, that’s what is. If judgement is showing up, that’s what is. If past memories from childhood are showing up, that’s what is. 

The only recommendation here is to NOTICE this. That’s it. Not to try to change anything at all. Let the mind be. Just observe its confusion. And remember to breath… you are already whole and complete, something the mind can never be.

Seeking for what is always and already the case. New MJ Awakening Blog

Explorer in a lake

“The Realization of Truth is not attained by any reaction to the present conditions of existence. Whatever is the Truth, it must be True at this moment. It must be always already True, both in and prior to every moment of space-time.

Therefore, the Realization of Truth is not attained in the search for Truth, since seeking must necessarily bypass the Truth in this moment in order to pursue it as an eventual Goal of action in time and space.”

-Adi Da Samraj

MICHAEL: I must forget/dismiss/ignore/fail-to-notice/fail-to-appreciate that this moment is already all the Truth in existence, so that I can then begin to search for “it” in some imaginary location. And I can do this for the rest of my life.
