WHAT YOU ARE HAS NEVER CHANGED

All thoughts, feelings, emotions, moods, perceptions, ideas, stories, experiences come and go. But does that which is eternally True come or go?

The pictures are forever changing, but the canvas on which they appear is timeless. In Reality nothing has ever changed. Merely the appearance of change. Temporary, fleeting, illusory images… never actually reaching Reality. Like moving a 4th of July sparkler in a circular motion really fast at night appears to make a circle. But is there actually a real, independent thing called a circle there? Or is it a made up word for a made up appearance?

Here and gone, here and gone… and btw, where exactly is here?? When exactly is now?? What was “here” before the body was born is what is “here” now and will be after the body is gone.

Sri Nisargadatta called it the Absolute. The changeless. Prior to Consciousness. What You are has never changed.

What if no one has ever died because no one was ever born? New MJ Awakening Blog

WHAT IF NO ONE HAS EVER DIED BECAUSE NO ONE WAS EVER BORN?

“There is an agreed upon, consensus reality which almost the entire human race shares. The world has been around a long time; it is ancient. Into this world, you are born as an individual; you grow, learn, experience life, and die. There is some disagreement concerning what happens after that, except that for everyone else, life will go on – until they also die. Everybody thinks they know this – or some local variation of this. But in fact when you were ‘born’ you did not know this. You LEARNED this. Everyone else learned it too and so it is an almost universally shared idea. But everybody believing something doesn’t make it true.

From eternity, without time, I Am, the unborn. Just as a dream begins at some point during sleep, so ‘at some point’ That which I Am appears as Consciousness here, and this world comes into being. I open my eyes: there is experiencing of life in this apparent body/mind. After a certain span of experiencing, I close my eyes: the world ceases to be, and from eternity I Am, the unborn. What could be simpler, or more obvious?

Every once in a while someone will come along and try to tell folks this, but a consensus reality is tough to crack. It is self-reinforcing and has built-in ways to deal with cognitive dissonance. One way is to call the offenders ‘crazy.’ Another, just as effective, is to call them ‘mystics.’ Either way the illusion of separation, the consensus reality, is maintained.”

MICHAEL: That you were born is so universally believed that to even question it seems insane. But what if it is only the body that is born and not You? If you were born, how come you don’t remember being born? “Because I was too young” is the common reply. But what if the real reason is because you weren’t. What are the implications? If you were never born then how can you die? What if no one has ever died because no one was ever born?

What are You awakening to? The clear recognition of the ONE GREAT REALITY within all things… impersonal, ever-present, timeless Consciousness.

-Michael Jeffreys

p.s. Knowing/Awareness/Consciousness is King, because how can there be objects w/o the knowing of them? An object can’t know itself.

And Knowing can never become anything because knowing is not in time. If it was, what would know it?

It’s the clear (beyond a shadow-of-a-doubt) Conscious recognition that TIME has nothing for you. If it did, You would no longer be TIMELESS.

How do you find what is Eternal? You are that, so it cannot be found. Also it cannot be found in any experience or event in time.

-Summairu

Why does the mind trouble you? Simply see that there is nothing behind the mind except eternal silence. Who does the mind trouble?

The Timeless, the Eternal, You, have never been in Time… New MJ Awakening Blog

If my starting premise as to what I AM (my Absolute Nature) is false, than all subsequent conclusions will naturally be false as well.

In other words, if I believe I (the Eternal/Timeless) am in time, then all my subsequent conclusions will also be time-bound and not what I truly am, nor have I ever been. 

It’s this Self-recognition of my true timeless nature that makes all the difference. No one can do it for You–You must see this recognition intuitively/directly for Yourself.

Birthdays are for the Body, not YOU
June 21, 2012

“I am 39 yrs. old”, I just heard an interviewer say to his guest on an internet show. And I found myself smiling, followed by the thought: “No, your BODY is 39 yrs. old… YOU are timeless and ageless. You are eternal because YOU have never been born.” Be clear that even though your body continues to age every second, YOU are not your body. I.e., the same “thing” is looking out your eyes now as when you were 1 min. old, 5 yrs. old, 10 yrs. old 25 yrs old, 5 mins. ago, and right now! Unlike the physical body, what YOU are was never born and so it cannot die.
