All human beings are mummers… New MJ Awakening Blog

there's nothing behind the mask

 

All human beings are mummers.

Does not the baby mimic the sounds it hears?

Do we not all mimic words from someone else’s language we were taught to mimic?

What do you know that nobody taught you?

For that you cannot use any word.

What grounds do you have for ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, believing a thought?

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.

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…

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.

No moment is more Holier than any other moment because what is Truly Holy never goes anywhere.  -Michael Jeffreys

Tom (on facebook): I don’t recall you using language like “holy” and “sacred” before – am I mistaken?

Michael: This is just how it came out today. 🙂 All the words are always pointing at only one “thing.” And that one thing can’t be put into words. When what is most holy, most true, most real is silently recognized it is found nowhere else but here/now.

Thus here/now is the only “thing” that’s ever truly holy.

“… the true quality of the words is the presence which speaks the words, the presence behind the words.” -Sri Summairu. New MJ Awakening Blog

“The real true value of pointing is not really in the words, though the words can be useful and hold value on the surface layers, the real value is in the abiding consciousness in which the words spring forth from. It’s this constant presence of undivided consciousness that allows for the invitation beyond concepts.

In this sense, and from this shift of perspective, it really doesn’t matter what is said or how it’s said, because the true quality of the words is the presence which speaks the words, the presence behind the words. The words are only a secondary tool to translate or transmit the abiding presence which is always the case in all beings. Presence only uses words for this reason and this purpose alone.

“…that which is not presence, will always have an agenda, in one way or another.” -Sri Summairu

Presence uses everything in life, every event, every experience, absolutely everything for one purpose; to wake itself up.

Presence only wants for us, itself, to be what it naturally is. It’s only our false ideas about reality, which overlay this natural beingness.

Presence knows what it’s doing, it’s our only job to meet it.”

-Sri Summairu

 

MICHAEL: “Our only job is to meet it.” Thus, I can begin to notice how my attention is constantly going to thought rather than meeting/resting in the natural simplicity of what is already present, here/now, always.
