Q: What is the difference between my true nature and my ego?

MICHAEL: Your true nature is infinite-awareness-love-being, nothing more nothing less. And in fact is ALL you can ever be (like it or not!). The ego is an imposter, a psychological construct/false identity that claims to be you.

It has its own strong conditioned ideas/beliefs/opinions about what should or should not be happening in any given moment, but is not You. For example, it’s what is interested in endlessly arguing/debating its beliefs (which it mistakes as truth) with others on facebook. 🙂

p.s. Note that it is not enough to just agree with the thought,”Yes, I am infinite-awareness-love-being.” We must feel in our heart that it is in fact our actual true nature and then live from this infinite-awareness-love-being identity AND NO OTHER.

In other words, we must NOTICE how we unconsciously slip back into the old ego identity out of habit. It is our earnestness for truth/total freedom that unfailingly shows us the way back to the one transcendent love we have never actually left.

The infinite leaves nothing out and so nothing is ever actually separate… new MJ Awakening Blog

There is only ever THIS. And THIS looks like… everything! Whatever is showing up, however it’s showing up, is THIS. And what THIS is is indefinable, because it’s everything. The finite cannot describe the infinite and any perspective is by definition finite. Relaxation/peace happens naturally when it’s seen that the miracle of this moment is unimaginable and indefinable, yet is all there ever IS.

Wholeness only appears to be separate so that it can be experienced. The ice cream must appear separate from the tree so that it can be experienced. However, in actuality the infinite leaves nothing out and so nothing is ever actually separate.

The Law of ONE
October 1, 2012

The law of ONE says that there is nothing that is separate from all that is. So everything you experience is literally an aspect or perspective of the ONE.

Q: “Then why, Michael, do things appear to be so different?” The answer is contained in the question: they only APPEAR different. For example, look at the skin on your arm… every inch contains different colors, marks, freckles, blemishes, scars, surface height (under a microscope the skin looks like a mountain range!), number of hairs, etc., yet it’s still ONE arm.

Everything you see, touch, taste, smell, hear or intuit is ALL an aspect or perspective of the only thing that exists… existence! Another analogy is that regardless of how many hundreds of cable channels your TV receives, they all come from the same cable or Source!

However, the mind’s nature is to divide and judge (just like the TV is designed to break the cable signal into different channels), and so it is not able to truly see/feel/intuit that ALL is ONE.

In order to do this, take a step backward and look at the totality of ALL that IS from the perspective of your soul or higher-self. Going back to my arm analogy, focus on the entire arm rather than in the apparent differences on the surface.

Consciously connecting with your soul/intuition/higher self is what allows you to naturally sense/experience the interconnectedness of all that exists. One diamond, unlimited perspectives or facets. And yet ALL are a part of the WHOLE, including YOU.
