SELF-REALIZATION

What’s been PRESENT for every moment of my existence from birth to now?

“You will tire of everything but the joy of God.” -Sri Yukteswar

MICHAEL: If every person in the world loved you, but you did not know God’s love directly, pure love that’s not personal in any way, love that comes only and wholly from your inner Beingness, you’d still be miserable deep down inside.

BEING AUTHENTIC

The deeper you go into Self-realization, the more you realize being authentic is more important than wanting to be liked. People come and go in your life. One day they like you, the next they don’t.

I think what Byron Katie says holds true here: “What you think of me is none of my business.”

We cannot control what others think of us. However, we can control how AUTHENTIC we’re being in each moment.

Being authentic, to me, simply means you speak from your heart. I notice that when I’m being authentic with someone, I can say pretty much anything and they won’t get offended because they feel it’s not coming from ego/personal agenda.

Rather, it’s coming from love. From the profound realization what we are all in this together. That everyone is doing the best they can in that moment. And most importantly, I am only ever speaking to Myself.

It’s not that you are Conscious or that I am Conscious… it’s that there is ONLY Consciousness.

Self-Realization: Seeing the One in All. New MJ Awakening Blog

SELF-REALIZATION: SEEING THE ONE IN ALL

The supreme duty, the real calling of every man and woman as a human being is to realize his Self, to realize the One manifested in all. Among the countless hosts of different creatures of the universe, the human being alone is endowed with the capacity to become aware of his own Divinity, to know THAT which lies concealed within all the infinite forms and shapes and modes of being.

-Anandamayi Ma

MICHAEL: In order to become one pointed on God and forget yourself,
repeat this short, but powerful mantra throughout the day/night as often as possible:

*BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

BRAHMAN IS ALL THEREFORE I AM BRAHMAN.

(*And if the word Brahman doesn’t resonate for you, pick one that does. For example: God, Source, Infinite-Intelligence, Life, The-Tao, All-that-is, etc.

Because no word is “it”, any word that points to everything and nothing, that which has no limitation, no qualities, no beginning or ending, will work. Keep repeating, with feeling, until the mind begins to accept it at which point it will begin to quiet down.)

Delighting in the play of Brahman as all forms; From hate to love; Turning the mind inward -Anandamayi Ma. New MJ Awakening Blog

Anandamayi MA

Anandamayi Ma (1896-1982)

DELIGHTING IN THE PLAY OF BRAHMAN AS ALL FORMS

“I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe. All plants and animals, all human beings, all higher mind-bodies are playing about in this garden in various ways each has its own uniqueness and beauty; their presence and variety give me great delight. Every one of you add with your special feature to the glory of the garden.”

-Anandamayi Ma

FROM HATE TO LOVE

“The positive proof that the aspirant is centered in God is that he ceases to hate any person or object, and that good qualities such as love, forgiveness, patience, forbearance go on increasing in him. When this change takes place in an aspirant, he will come to see that the One Brahman pervades each and every form…”

-Anandamayi Ma

TURNING THE MIND INWARD

“The same mind that identifies itself with the body can be turned towards the Eternal…”

-Anandamayi Ma

MICHAEL: You have forgotten your true identity. Your attention is constantly on the temporary. Put it on what is looking out your eyes, what is ever-present, and remember that is what you are, what you’ve always been.

finger pointing to moon

UNKNOWABLE YOU

Just like the finger pointing to the moon has no moon in it, whatever you see, hear, taste, touch, smell, or think has no “you” in it. You will never find yourself in any appearance because you’re always what is seeing it.

If you were really the body, why would you need to look into a mirror to see what you are?
