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?

SILENCE… where the seemingly infinite is revealed to be ONE. New MJ Awakening Blog

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.

“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. ❤

PRESENCE is simply Being, not Storying. New MJ Awakening Blog

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

Objects exist in duality… you are the changeless space of love they come and go in. New MJ Awakening Blog

LETTING GO OF ALL OBJECTS

This morning as I awoke, I found myself spontaneously meditating on how strongly the mind is attached to physical objects in this world of infinite forms. I remember as a child dreaming of getting a new toy and believing once I had it I could play with it whenever I wanted and be happy… ha! 

The realization today is about the importance of knowing clearly that no physical object (person, place, or thing) has the power to truly bring us happiness. Because the belief that ANY object has the power to give me happiness means that at some level I feel lack and believe this object will fill/take away that lack. But is this true? Can an object ever truly fulfill me?

When I see for myself that they can’t, because the root sense of “lack” is still present even after I acquire the object, then the only thing to do is drop into my heart, into presence, and go straight to this feeling of lack. To really be present with it. To feel its pain and to simply love it, as it is. That’s it. 

So instead of reacting to the sense of lack, arguing with it, or trying to fix it, I am simply giving it space and love…. space and love….space and love.

The mind is a thought producing machine and this morning I caught it starting-up upon awakening. New MJ Awakening Blog

baby waking up

Upon awakening this morning, I could feel/hear the mind literally start-up/kick in. You can actually catch it start babbling its nonsense in mid-sentence if you are present enough as you come out of sleep. And if you can hear the mind, you know that it’s not you, because you’re what’s hearing it. Always. Even right now.

And if you say, “Ok mind, I am here and ready to listen, go ahead… go head…” and then you get quiet, it has nothing to say! As a friend said in a recent facebook post, the thing never shuts up, but now, when I become present with it, it has nothing to say!!??

p.s. I found that looking at/feeling into this babies’ serene face from presence (no thoughts), takes you right to stillness/peace/serenity…
