REACHING FOR SHINY OBJECTS Aura Man.m4v
Everything is Divining.
The full acceptance of “What Is”, is total immersion in the Divine. To not have one preference in any direction, other than knowing the Knowing, is to clearly See the Being of Being. Meaning there is no ‘other’ where disenfranchised energy can wander to.
Acceptance of the “What Is” is not true acceptance, when 50%, 75%, or even 90% of what our understanding is, is filtered through dross. Partial preferences are not viable. Any viability based on an illusory figure, is illusory. When we give any illusion reality, it steals the show.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t take a whole lot to distort Truth, when Truth cannot truly be Truth and contemporaneously be an object. Mis-placement of honoring a one-dimensional ‘idea’ as Truth, deprives us of experiencing Fullness as un-conditional.
The torture of suffering abides easily when we unknowingly misrepresent Consciousness as second to the world and to our mind/body. This is the objectification of Consciousness, i.e. a ‘thing’.
Consciousness, precedes any noun-ing to include the body/mind, perceptions, sensations, feelings, and thoughts. The no-thing-ness of Consciousness is a reference to the emptiness of infinite potential that precedes any thing or noun-making. The elemental problem is often the assumption that we can find Consciousness like any other noun.
What is looking, feeling, tasting, touching, hearing, is the forgotten witness of conscious contact. Forgotten because of It’s eternal ubiquity and non-nouning. What is perceiving, cannot be known like a noun can be known. The knowing of Knowing is independent of any phenomena. That Knowing is eternally Present and independent of acknowledgement or un-acknowledgement. ‘It’ Is the eternal witness witnessing thought-less-ly.
Being aware of “What Is”, is Knowing. It Is Knowing Self (verbing) with no other (noun). Being aware of the Knowing has no need for nouns or objects. Being aware of objects is being aware of phenomena arising from Consciousness Itself. Consciousness has no identity in that there is no noun to identify with.
When we reach for the shiny objects, aka thoughts, we invest in the dross not the substance of life. The act of reaching and claiming the shiny object is the beginning of the mis-identification and concretion of false self. The repetition is necessary to sustain the illusion that really has no life at all.
Losing the false identity, as the source of consciousness, is finding Consciousness as only Consciousness. Consciousness starts and ends with Consciousness, meaning there is never any ‘thing’ to ever find. What appears in Consciousness is not sustainable except through Consciousness and It’s play. The Dreaming dreams the dream. The screen allows the movie to play. The screen is first, the movie is temporarily second.
“Don’t lose yourself in thoughts and feelings; let them lose themselves in you.” -Rupert Spira
We Are the ‘no beginning’ and ‘no end’ of Consciousness ad infinitum.

LOVE LOVES LOVE
There is no chooser. There is no choosing. There is no chosen. There is nobody to love.
There is only love.
Love is not choosing as there is no one to choose. The One is only One and not two.
And the body is merely a vehicle for Love to be broadcast. Loving the internet because of its broadcasting powers, is not necessary for it to work. Similarly, the vehicle is merely the medium used for transacting love. The vehicle needs the fuel of animation for it to work. Love needs nothing as It is everything.
The vehicle can be directed to operate in the traffic of phenomena. When the appearances of living phenomena arise, the felt sense of Love can be part of that ascendancy.
Though, Love remains Love regardless of what medium is used. Ramping up love is never necessary due to the fact that it can never be diminished.
The capacity of love seemingly differs among the human vehicles. The difference is not due to love itself modulating the quality and/or quantity of love.
The difference can be accounted for by the dreaming of the dream. Only in the dreaming of the unreal dream, does love suffer a loss or gain in the quantity/quality. And the dreaming is Love dreaming the dream. Love can seemingly be lost only in the dream.
The aliveness of what’s happening, is love reflecting It’s Presence in the appearance called life.
“To know the world is to be the world, and to be the world is to love the world.”-Rupert Spira
The multiplicity of vehicles does not result in a-division of love. Love remains full and undiminished.
Vehicle fleets may increase or decrease. The amount of inventory has no impact on having enough love.
Love does not grow or lessen with time. Time is a construct that was created through the prism of the mind. Again, the True nature of Love is always un-diminish-able. It’s wheelhouse Is Eternity.
The necessity to do a division of love is a false assumption with no merit. Love diminished is no longer love. There is no ‘doing’ Love. There is only Being Love.
Love cannot be divided except seemingly. Calling Love that is divided ‘Love’, is mislabeling what was supposed to be Love (unmolested).
There Is no changing the essential nature of Love as it is not a thing. Things are nouns. Love is an active verb, meaning Love Loves Love ad Infinitum.
Love was never created and can never die, unlike things.
Be Love, effortlessly. Effortlessly is allowing no differentiation. There is a full acceptance for everyone and everything as all Is Love.

DYING TO LIVE
The desperation is unrelenting. Does it have to be so hard? Are there just short vacations between the onslaughts of strife? Is there a happiness that is not concluded with a termination date?
Are we just dying to live?
Are the goal posts moving farther out of reach as we approach? Can anything or anybody save this god- forsaken world? OR is our perspective all wrong?
The testing has been going on a long time without a seeming long-term solution. Dying sometimes appears to be the only relief.
Except, what dies is not the body/mind. What dies is the idea of being the body/mind.
When we so forcefully grab at reality for the ‘seeming self’, we unseemingly get attached/identified with the ‘seeming self’. This has been said and heard by us before. But do we realize that we completely missed the message?!
The pointing is not to the ’seeming self’. The message is to the permanent Self, from the permanent Self.
It is only with the death of the illusory self that real relief can be found. Concurrent with that death, is the complete divestment of our structured debt obligation, we have amassed in creation of this illusory self.
Our belief and conditioning in the illusory self cannot continue to abide , as it is ‘that’ that binds us to the false imprisonment.
The abandonment of the whole structure is necessary in order to be liberated from it’s influence. It’s influence, is our attachment to the thoughts, perceptions, sensations, and unidentified beliefs we recycle daily in our waking/sleeping moments.
All ‘that’ must die to live the aliveness that is always happening with complete freedom. What dies is illusion.
What is it the makes up illusion? Just illusion. Reality was never un-whole. It just appeared that way from a jaundiced view.
The death of an illusion need not be mourned, as it was only a seeming illusion. The Reality never suffers as It’s wholeness is never diminished by illusion. Illusion literally means nothing.
The point is that the starting point does NOT begin with the illusion. The starting point has never changed. The starting point has always been here and Now, as there is nothing else, including time, to say otherwise.
When we abide in the illusory and seeming self, we abide in illusion. This is because we dis-allow the ’Openness’ with our seeming need for following thoughts i.e. identification with thoughts as us.
Openness never pushes. Illusion constantly pushes. Openness is effortless acceptance, while the illusory self requires enormous maintenance as it is not even real.
Full acceptance versus a painful contraction of pushing, clearly distinguishes direction and starting point.
Resting as what is observing the illusion relieves the need to push. Appearances of thoughts, conditioning, memory, and identification are divested from the blind commitment that previously characterized one’s view.
The Openness allows without vetting, all comers and goers. The Openness is unaffected by what is perceived, as it Is the Perceiving only.
The appearances all have a short self-life. Illusions do not even have a shelf-life as they are imposters in time. They have never really existed. Their death was not even a death since they were never really born.
Abiding in a thought-based environment means that we believe in our little opinions, ideas, and predilections. Letting go of all that is necessary because the ‘m’ and ‘y’ in that, is what binds us to the illusion. When we free ourselves from this attachment we can easily accept the “What Is” effortlessly.
“All that is experienced is experience, but there is no independent self that experiences and no independent object, other or world that is experienced. There is just the experiencing of experience, and it is ‘experiencing’ that experiences experience.” -Rupert Spira
The Perceiving, the Openness, freely accepts life without the need to be the arbiter and/or dictator of life. Consciousness Is everything to include the starting and end point, as it is the same.
To live is to die first. What dies, can die. What lives, can’t die. See the effortless permanence that breathes life through us all, always. There is only Openness Perceiving Self. Rest here, watching the characters, appearances, and seeming dramas. This seat is the best seat in the theater.
Live life Here and Now.

AWARENESS IS NOT A THOUGHT
The mind is an object, as are the thoughts perseverated on by the mind. Objects do not have Consciousness, except in the sense that Consciousness has everything. Every ‘thing’ arises from Consciousness and abides in Consciousness.
The appearances of thought are appearances that do not have the permanence and stability of eternity existing as eternity.
When we talk about ‘Consciousness’, we stick a non-concept into a conceptual framework, compromising the ‘essential-ness’, for the convenience of the mind. To talk and conceptualize about ‘It’ is immediately imposing limitation/separation.
To suggest that ‘Awareness’ is not a thought, is to overtly underscore the frugality of continuing to use an inadequate structure called the ‘mind’, to do the calculus of infinity.
The pointing, is to the view of ‘what is’, not to the prototypical mind and it’s failed attempt to digest the indigestible.
Having a ‘thought’ about Awareness is always coming from the limited view of ‘thought’. Having Awareness about ‘thoughts’ is changing the view to substantially reducing the influence of ‘thoughts’ relative to using the ‘Prior-ness’ of Awareness.
Maintaining the view of thoughts as secondary, as a permanent view; reduces the falseness of self, gradually revealing Self as the Prior-ness to all thoughts.
Now, the presumed ‘thinker’ is no longer presumed, as there is no longer an imaginary object that produces thoughts, i.e. the thinker.
The ‘thinker’ never was real and never was really in control of thoughts, despite ‘the thinking’ that believed all that.
Thoughts arise from Consciousness and are later claimed by the mind with ‘m’ and ‘y’asserting a false self and ‘thinker’. The charade is merely conceptual belief.
Direct experience of the ‘Prior-ness’ , reveals a non-object. Awareness never falters in It’s Presence, as it Is the Conscious contact that Is Seeing, Tasting, Touching, Smelling, and Hearing effortlessly. These 5 gates are the conduits for the eternal ‘on’ of Awareness. Awareness is never ‘off’.
The artificial dominance of thought breaks up the ‘experiencing’. We over-value objects. Contrasting, ‘That’ which is aware of thoughts, and is receiving everything at full value, without any diminishing of Self. Identification with objects (thoughts) is mind-based. Thoughts and other appearances in Consciousness are very temporary visitors expressing their limited vocabulary, on the surface of this vast ocean.
To abide in the Ineffable Awareness, is to have the primary view of Awareness as the starting point of nothing and everything happening constantly. The intersection with objects and Awareness has no adverse effects on Awareness. The basis of objects is Awareness, making Awareness integrated and undiminished.
“See thoughts and feelings like a train that enters a station and then leaves; be like the station, not like a passenger.” -Rupert Spira
The perseverating of thoughts, clouds reality with concepts, missing the sum and substance of existential Being. Thoughts cannot be the conveyance to getting past the separate artificial self. Thoughts have gone too far away from Source to realize Source.
The Ineffable Source of Being/Knowing is always Present and is never diminished. ’That’ Is the conveyance that transports ‘Us’ to ‘Us’. The limited vocabulary of objects hides the obvious “I Am” which is not a thought.
Love the Love,
AM I A ‘NOUN’ OR A ‘VERB’?
That’s a peculiar question, but a relevant inquiry. It is peculiar in that we do not think about breaking down language to the point of how it’s use effects us -directly. It is relevant in that the ‘use’ presupposes an elemental framework with profound consequences. Albeit, consequences for a starting point called identity.
An inquiry must take place to properly assess the question. The question-er asks first, ‘who’ am I?
Secondly, the movement to place ‘self’ in the category of the stasis of a ’noun’ or in the constant movement of a ‘verb’, must subsequently fit the choice of the first question.
‘Not’ getting a proper fitting, ‘after’ christening self with a noun or a verb, will compel us to view the question again. If in the first choice, there is the finding of a failure to properly justify our appropriate slot, a ‘redo’ is in order. Given the rigors of the selected slot, it is intellectually commanded, to right an obvious irrational fitment.
If “Who am I”, is answered in the noun affirmative, where is the evidence?
A lifetime of a daily grind of conditioning, has left the clear majority of 7.5 billion people, most probably, in the slot of a ‘noun’. Even that number is not enough justification for noun-ing.
Often, the ‘character’ we most identify with, is still the character with the very specific limited role and accumulative historical narrative, that is ‘real’ in terms of worldly script-writing. As far as ‘true identity’ is concerned, ‘We’ as ‘Fullness’, are certainly ‘not’ just the character in this ‘real’ movie. The character we play is a ‘noun’. However, the ‘Fullness’ is prior to any noun-ing in any role or movie we play in.
This is where the confusion takes place. We do not distinguish the character we play with the ‘no-nouning’ aka ‘verbing’ of whom we really Are. Not distinguishing Self from a seemingly stable ‘noun’ is the mis-identity. The superficial role we play in life is not whom We really Are. There is a certain finality to being a noun, called limitation.
There is no limitation or any boundary in the domain of Nothing/Everything-ness. There is no location or point to find ‘this’ unboundedness, although It Is all points/locations.
If ‘It’ were a noun, then we could find the noun, see the noun, and consider it an ‘object’. No noun-ing is no subject/object. The duality is appearance not the Priorness of infinite potential.
“Be neither the knower nor the known, but rather the knowing of experience, and you will find yourself as everyone and everything.” -Rupert Spira
A ‘noun’ has a finality of finished limitation. Verbing is never finished. Verbing is not setting down as subject/object. Identity is much closer to a verb despite the ‘seeming’ ‘noun-ing’. This type of identity is not stuck in ‘this’ or ‘that’. ‘It’ never settles for any ‘thing’. The nature of Beingness is an aliveness that is refreshing Itself constantly. Becoming a ‘noun’ stops the eternal Becoming.
The ‘aliveness’ is the Now, the Moment in the moment, that accepts the perennial change with Love coming home to the Heart. The ‘aliveness’ is alive because there is no clinging to any ‘thing’ (or noun). It Is free as free can be because there is never any stopping the eternity of Being.
Resting as a ‘noun’ is not resting. It is rusting. Resting as a ‘verb’ is refreshing and rejuvenating as there is nothing to rust.
The boundaries of a ‘noun’ identity are prison-like in that we are compelled to believe something that is not true, resulting in suffering. Being a limited noun traps us in a separate illusory identity compelling us to believe in the limited capacity to transcend the prison of self. The verbing of Beingness has no stops or nouns, thereby making self-imprisonment an impossibility. Beingness has nothing to believe as there is no noun there to have af.
Moreover, the ‘completeness’ of Beingness is not needy in the least ergo, Fullness. In Beingness, there is not even a need for identity, as It just Is. The ‘aliveness’ of no limits and all possibilities result in the Yes, Yes, and Yes of “What Is”.
