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?

“There is no ‘Person-Mind’… there is only thoughts that are arising that have been believed by You to create a dream.” -Nazarah Merah. New MJ Awakening Blog

Evolving Self Fragmentation

“I realized that this feeling I’ve always had of being a person, was never the feeling of being a person… I just mistook it as that. It was me all along, me right here, Me… I was always Me, looking for Me outside of Me… but here I was all along, knowing I was Me but thinking that the Me was a person!! How did I miss this?? How did I not notice me, there’s only me, I only ever feel me!!”

-Nita McIntyre

“The ‘Person-Mind’ is just a pointer to point out the thoughts that are creating an illusion of confusion, pain and suffering that were never the truth of what you are. There is no ‘Person-Mind’, there is no separate self…. There is only thoughts that are arising that have been believed by You to create a dream. Stop believing any and all thoughts. Just Be… and the illusion will be revealed.”

-Nazarah Merah

 

MICHAEL: I found these two quotes from Nita and Nazarah to be particularly direct and powerful in seeing that what you and I think of as being a person, isn’t being a person at all!

The best your mind can ever do is IMAGINE you’re a separate person… but this imagining never actually achieves the status of Reality! You never have actually changed… that’s the illusion… it’s the mind that is confused because it can never become what you ALREADY are… but that doesn’t stop it from trying!!

So funny when you see this…because you go from irritation and annoyance to love and compassion when you see how hard it’s trying to be You, to be immortal, to be Reality.

It’s YOU (The One Infinite) pretending/thinking/imaging what it would be like to be a person!!! There is a night and day difference between imagining you’re a separate person and actually being a separate person. Noticing this one distinction can make all the difference. You’ll know when you see this clearly because as Nazarah says, it’s soooooo shocking!!?

One moment you’re trying so hard to “get it right,” and the next you are stunned as you realize there never was a person. It’s all You pretending… everything is YOU AS THAT!!! This is why (imo) Nazarah is always laughing… because you are constantly amazed at everything YOU appear to do in this wild and crazy dream… it’s ALL YOU. That’s the Cosmic joke!!

all of existence

“You are all that exists. You are everything that exists. 

All of existence is you.”  -Nazarah Merah

MICHAEL: As our learned beliefs in the illusion of separation, as well as the ingrained, unconsciously held mind structures which give any/all beliefs a context in which to exist, e.g., “I live in a universe, I am human, my name is X, I come from this family…,” etc. begin to be consciously seen through, then Unity Consciousness can begin to be felt/experienced/recognized deeply within.

There is only One Self, nothing but the One Self, and that One Self is You.

Awakening is unique for every being… New MJ Awakening Blog

leaves

Just like no two leaves grow on a tree in exactly the same way, (and thus no “way” can be said to be “the right way,”) so too awakening is unique for each (seemingly separate) being.

Awareness becomes aware of/as itself when it becomes aware of/as itself. And it’s an ever unfolding/deepening… for no one.

The reason you can’t find “IT” is because everything is “IT.” New MJ Awakening Blog
July 27, 2017

oneness

The reason you can’t find “IT” is because everything is “IT.” There is nothing that is not “IT.” “IT” is all there has ever been, “IT” is all there is, “IT” is all there will ever be. Everything is “IT.” The search is over when this is realized. If everything is literally “IT” (and what “IT” is is undefinable and unknowable) than there is nothing whatsoever to get, nor anything not “IT” to get it.

Q: What does ‘Awareness watching Awareness’ mean? New MJ Awakening Blog

Q: What does ‘Awareness watching Awareness’ mean?

MICHAEL: It means to remove your ATTENTION from ‘objects,’ i.e., persons, places, things, thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations, etc. (where it habitually/automatically goes for almost everyone on the planet pretty much non-stop). And to place your ATTENTION on THAT which is silently AWARE (pure Awareness) of everything you seem to be aware of.

For example, as you read these words, notice that ‘something’ must be aware of them or how would you even know of their very existence?? Right now, notice this ever-present-formless-silent Awareness and let your attention rest on ‘it.’ ‘It’ is not a ‘thing,’ and thus has no perceivable qualities, yet it’s what allows for the knowing/perceiving of anything! In other words, are these words aware of themselves? No. Then what IS? (And if a thought says, “Me, I am!”, then what is aware of this ‘me’ thought??)

Hint: Be still/silent and ‘allow’ ‘your’ impersonal Awareness to become aware of itself. If you find yourself going back to a thought/object, gently bring your attention back to the Awareness itself. This is the ultimate meditation and can be done anywhere, anytime, and ‘you’ cannot ‘do it’ too much!

 

You, pure Awareness, are forever unattached, regardless of what a thought may claim… new MJ Awakening Blog

attachment-unavailable

MICHAEL: The belief that you must give up all your attachments crumbles in light of the realization that it is not possible for You to actually be attached to anything!! That’s right. The witnessing presence that You already are is pure and contains no parts, objects or impurities. Thus you are always and forever unattached, regardless of what a thought may claim. More from swamiji, who is commenting on the Astavakra Samhita:

I am not saying you SHOULD NOT be attached. Astavakra is telling us you are NOT attached. You are not attached to anything. It is the mind which develops attachments: ‘I want this to stay, I want that person to stay, I want this circumstance, this wealth, this health, this place, this environment, I want this to continue.’

This is the mind thinking. Yet beyond the mind, the Atman, the witness, You the being consciousness… you’re not attached to anything, not even to the mind itself. The mind itself disappears in deep sleep. You’re not attached to anything.

-Swami Sarvapriyananda

p.s. For those that are interested, here’s Swamiji’s powerful video from which the above quote was taken: Ashtavakra Samhita by Swami Sarvapriyananda

Reality is silent, yet IT never stops speaking… new MJ Awakening Blog

Reality is silent, yet IT never stops speaking to you!

IT’s here now.

IT’s all around you.

IT’s all there is, was, and will ever be.

Everything you see, hear, taste, touch, smell, think and intuit is IT.

IT is waving to you from every direction, and yet still you don’t see it.

Why?

Because you are hypnotized/mesmerized/lost in thought, in your own “private” fantasy about what never happened.

A dream for no one from no one.

Amazing.
