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

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

harmony pervades. –Michael Jeffreys

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.

God is NOT in heaven. God is what’s looking out your eyes… new MJ Awakening Blog

gods eye

God is NOT in the sky/heaven or in some mystical place or other dimension that we can’t know or in some book or video. Where is God then? What we refer to as “God” is literally what’s looking out your eyes right now!! LITERALLY.

The mind cannot see this, but it can be intuited/realized in your own direct experience. And when you see this for yourself, when it dawns on you that what I am saying is 100% true and indeed the case, you may find yourself laughing/smiling and feeling at peace for no particular reason!

You simply and deeply realize (honestly, for the first time in your life!) that the Truth, Source, God, etc. is what You are and have been all along! That’s the Cosmic joke! There is nothing to get because You are ALREADY THAT which you have been seeking. You are already home because you have never gone anywhere.
