Being SILENCE doesn’t mean there are no thoughts… new MJ Awakening Pointer

Being SILENCE doesn’t mean there are no thoughts. It means that when a thought arises, you have nothing to add to it.

There is no getting to SILENCE. New MJ Awakening Pointer
August 15, 2018

there is a voice that doesnt use words rumi

Every moment you’re not thinking, you ARE Silence. And in Silence, there are no words, which means there are no problems, no fears, no anxiety, no criticisms, no judgments, no nothing. Just Silence.

“Oh, this is just escapism…” says the mind. Blah, blah, blah… more mind noise, more “not Silence.”

You can’t think your way to Silence.

You can only BE Silence.

“Oh, but it’s not easy to quiet the mind.” Blah, blah, blah… more noise. “But I have responsibilities that require thinking…” Blah, blah, blah…

Being Silence means being Silence and nothing else.

Is it possible for AWARENESS to be DISTURBED? New MJ Awakening Blog
July 31, 2018

emotional pain not mandatory

Is Awareness ever disturbed? Or is it aware of disturbance? In other words, which actually changes, Awareness or that which it is presently perceiving?

For example, you seem to be upset about something. But look closer. Is Awareness actually upset or is it aware of a feeling of being upset arising? The mind may claim, Who cares, I’m suffering!” But noticing this subtle but crucial distinction can make ALL the difference!

Once you realize you are what is aware of the feeling, then you are not attached to it, no longer taking it personally in any way, and are free to allow the feeling to be as it is.

And through your loving total acceptance of it, the lack of making it into a problem, the willingness to allow it as much time and space as it needs without any kind of agenda whatsoever, the contracted pain energy is healed/transmuted back into its natural stateless state, ever free boundless Awareness.

The Soul has taken so many imaginary journeys… apparent lifetime after lifetime, that it has forgotten how not to journey.

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.

Is that which is aware of every thought itself a thought? New MJ Awakening Blog

Presence IS and is not attached to thoughts, which come and go.

Presence is timeless… thoughts are time.
 
Notice this.
 
Keep silently noticing.
 
What is aware of every thought that arises?
 
Is that which is aware of every thought itself a thought?
