Q: “Acceptance of all and complete surrender to the absoluteness that I am is what’s needed. Would you agree?” New MJ Awakening Blog

surrender to love

QUESTION: “Acceptance of all and complete surrender to the absoluteness that I am is what’s needed. Would you agree?”

MICHAEL: Perfectly stated. Keep surrendering until there is only Love. And then watch as the “outer appearances” (in due time) begin to follow suit. I keep seeing it being confirmed over and over.

The absolute goal is to make “letting go and letting God” your natural default position, i.e., your instinctive response to any and all situations without exception.

So yes, it’s the complete surrendering of everything… you turn everything over to God (Source, Infinite Intelligence, etc.) and rest in what IS. Why? Because everything “you” used to do is now God’s responsibility (As it was intended to be all along!)

And if for whatever reason you find yourself still worrying about something, turn that over to God as well.
Keep doing this until there’s literally nothing left to do because it’s all been turned over to God/Source/Infinite Intelligence.

In summary, it’s the actual living of the quote, “Not my will, but Thy will be done” in every timeless moment.

“Angels can fly because they can take themselves lightly.”
-C.K. Chesterton

MICHAEL: Whatever we hold on to weighs us down. It doesn’t matter if it’s a physical object or a mental object, such as a thought, feeling, story or belief. If we don’t freely allow what comes to come and what goes to go, we get backed up.

For example, when it comes to eating, elimination of food is as vital to our health as taking in food. If we try to hang on to the food without eliminating it, we become constipated and suffer. Life is movement, flow. Freely and happily allow what comes to come and what goes to go. Hold onto nothing.

This is true Surrender.

Freedom is seeing that it’s ALL happening perfectly spontaneously… new MJ Awakening Blog

spontaneous life

Few can see this… the mind will lash out… the ego will rebel… thoughts will give examples that appear to show horrible atrocities as to why it cannot be so…. and yet, I say again… there is nothing BUT perfection.

For example, as I write these words the cries of my next door neighbor’s baby can be heard. How is this not perfect? And if I find that it disturbs me, how is that not perfect? And if I love the sound of hearing life crying, how is that not perfect?

Whatever happens and whatever your response to what is happening, whether you like or don’t like it, whether you agree or disagree, freedom is seeing that it’s all happening perfectly spontaneously. That what is IS… and therein lies its sweet perfection.

“When you try to escape the now, you are trying to escape yourself” new MJ Awakening Blog
July 19, 2014

snow

Trying to escape the NOW, what is, is not possible. How can you escape from all that is? Where would you go? How would you get there? And who is this one that is trying to escape the now? Would not that “sense of you” that is trying to escape also be part of what’s presently arising? And if that “sense of you” is not separate from now, then escape is impossible and any attempts must naturally lead to suffering.

And what, exactly, is it you are trying to escape from? What is the now? Can you define it? Control it? No and no, for the reason that now isn’t an object, it’s not a thing that can actually be found or picked up or even touched. It’s simply all that is ever happening. You are the now… not a part of the now, but all of it. So when you try to escape the now, you are trying to escape yourself.

Q: “I just think i need to be clear on what exactly AWARENESS is….”

sky wheat field

Question from facebook:

Jason: I just think i need to be clear on what exactly awareness is….

Michael: Been there, done that… awareness is absolutely nothing… you are always aware of something, so whatever the mind claims is “awareness” can never be it… let the mystery have you… nothing to figure out… it’s the mind’s attempt to figure out something it can only ever guess at that keeps the suffering going… can you notice how badly the mind wants to be “right”??

What is your direct experience when the whole search is dropped, confusion and loose ends and all? “I give up” full stop.

What is left but this naked moment exactly as it is?

Jason: Yea theres nothing left….no thought just sounds and sensations..of this direct moment…

My New Year’s wish for every being is that you know in your heart that all is well
December 31, 2013

Happy-New-Year-Greetings-2014-HD-Wallpaper-For-Lovers-with-Wishes-SMS

My New Year’s wish for every being is that you know in your heart that all is well. Regardless of whether the winds of fortune appear to be blowing this way or that, it does not matter. Once you have found the Beloved in your heart, that which is no distance from you, appearances no longer trouble you.

The mind has lost its pull on you and so the peace and love that you are remains unaffected… Hallelujah! This is true cause for celebration… but not the kind the world thinks of with alcohol and noise. This is an internal celebration that takes place quietly in the contented silence of your heart.

True Acceptance Leaves Nothing Out
February 15, 2013

tranquility

When this moment is truly accepted as it IS, meaning ALL is accepted, both the “wanted” and the “unwanted,” it’s possible to find a vast space present that has room for everything, AS IT IS.

It’s a LIVING space, and so trying to analyze it with your mind will only keep you spinning and stuck, as opposed to accepting, allowing and loving.

The secret is to accept or “make space” for (actually, the space is already there, or you wouldn’t even be aware of the feeling, thought, sensation, or emotion) ALL that you are experiencing AS it arises… The good, the bad, and the ugly! 😉

While the mental “you” might not think it can handle such an “OPEN door policy,” the real you, the infinite space that you are beyond all descriptions has no problem BEing with what IS. “IT” has doing it ALL “your life.”

Once you catch on to this way of BEing (accepting rather than judging/analyzing everything), the next step is to put it into practice repeatedly until it becomes second nature. In other words, you no longer have to think about accepting or not accepting… ACCEPTANCE simply happens automatically.

This way of BEing is so incredibly liberating, not because it eliminates unpleasantness, but because you find you have space within you to allow it to be, fully, as it is. An open, full, loving Space that perhaps before you didn’t even realize you had within you. It’s a “being with,” in an authentic way, versus trying to change or get rid of your present moment experience.
