You ARE the NOW.

Vernon Howard: “Your thoughts do not belong to you at all.” New MJ Awakening Blog
August 4, 2017

Have you ever come back to a spiritual teacher and suddenly heard them in a new, deeper, more profound way?

I heard Vernon Howard several years ago but he didn’t knock me over (because I understood so little of what he was actually saying). However, now? Now I find his teaching to be one of the most direct and compassionate, because he doesn’t BS around one iota.

You are not what you think you are, you are not the imposter self that you currently take yourself to be. What’s more, you are in love with your imposter self and thus your suffering continues right up to this very moment!

That until you are 100% clear that YOU are the problem, no one else, the suffering will continue. Only when you admit you are totally helpless and clueless and can do nothing whatsoever via your own power… when you at long last give it up totally and completely, that is the first step towards real freedom. “I can of mine own self do nothing.” -John 5:30

The “I” that is seeking, trying to find its true nature, trying to find God has only ever been a thought. –Michael Jeffreys

MICHAEL: Notice where it’s not, and will never, ever, throughout all of existence be found: in thought.

Whatever thought says you are, you truly aren’t.
You are much, much greater.
Whatever thought says someone else is, they’re truly not.
They’re much, much greater.
Whatever thought says is happening, truly isn’t.
It’s much, much greater.

What is a THOUGHT? new MJ Awakening Blog

“What is a THOUGHT?”

This was the question I asked at the beginning of last Wednesday night’s West LA weekly Satsang.

“What is a THOUGHT?”

The mere sincere asking of this question brought a stillness over the room. This is because when asked from a place of genuine curiosity and having no pre-conceived answer, it stops the mind dead in its tracks. Why? Because it suddenly hits you that you don’t really know what a THOUGHT is!!? Yet, we are told the brain produces as many as 60-70 thousand per day… doesn’t it strike you as more than a bit strange to believe something that you don’t know what it actually is??

THOUGHTS have nothing to offer you. They are impotent. Imagine if you had been pushing a big red button on a wall all your life and then one day I took you on the other side of the wall and you saw just two loose wires hanging in the air. The button was never connected to anything!! Once you clearly saw this, how much longer would you continue to push the button? In fact, how much longer would you be even interested in thinking about pushing the button?? You wouldn’t. It would lose your interest.

Once you lose interest in your thoughts, what’s left??

If no thought applies to the knower of thought, who do they actually apply to?? New MJ Awakening Blog

How can ANY thought change what you already inherently are and have always been? For example, a thought shows up, “I am bad,” and then a thought shows up, “I am good.” Which is actually true for THAT that is aware of ALL thoughts? How can ANY thought apply to the knower of thought? And if no thought applies to the knower of thought, who do they actually apply to??

Your thoughts are not yours… new MJ Awakening Blog

Your thoughts are not yours. This is the fundamental mistake… taking possession of something that does not belong to you. WHO is taking possession? Can that one actually be found? WHO do thoughts refer to? Can that one actually be found?You only react or care about thoughts when you believe they are about/refer to “you.” And yet, “you” can never locate/find “you.” The belief that you exist separately from your thoughts must be investigated.No thought, no “you.” Thoughts appear IN You… thus, You are NOT a thought because You never come or go. You exist here/now whether a thought is arising or not.
