ADDING TO IS SUBTRACTING FROM

DSC01256

Less is more when ‘it’ is not polluted with the extraneous. Loading up on dross is inherently counterproductive. The direct and simple designs have an elegance that is immediately preferable to an artificial complexity. Complexity for complexity’s sake is an anathema to efficiency. Efficiency in the utilization of resources has a preference over complexity, especially when going global.

DSC01250.jpgWhen things are as simple as simple can be without being simpler, then optimalness is reached. The optimum is lost when this simplicity is lost. Adding to the optimum is essentially subtracting from the optimum.

DSC01251.jpgSubtracting by adding the unnecessary, diminishes the whole.

DSC01253.jpgDSC01252.jpgThe whole is complete regardless of any belief that ‘thinks’ things will improve through ‘more’ and ‘more’. The sufficiency of the optimum is a conformance with natural law in that there is a mathematical and geometric harmony with a divine proportion e.g. The Golden Mean.

IMG_0329.jpgAdding ‘stuff’ to the magnificent harmony of subatomic particles and/or expanding universes, would invariably impair optimalness and  effortlessness of these appearances. The indescribable aliveness of the universe is certainly self-sufficient and self-evident, without our adding to it.

DSC01249.jpgIn spirituality, adding is subtracting. There is no achievement as everything is already achieved. ‘Achievement’ is denigrating to “What Is” already Present Now.

DSC01258.jpgBelief in the soul-less-ness of trying is making the self-evident a mystery. The desire ‘to know’ drives the addition that is a virtual subtraction.

DSC01271.jpg‘Not knowing’ in the cognitive sense, is the helpfulness in being able to receive the “Knowing” without creating obstacles in the path of no path. Not knowing is the avoidance of making conclusions about anything and everything. Conclusions are end points with no life left in them. They are conceptual and very limiting. Life is unlimited and far from dead.

DSC01277.jpgAccepting the ‘mystery’ is not knowing and not making any conclusions about it. Accepting it is not questioning it’s fullness. It’s fullness is glaringly obvious upon acceptance. The arguing is thinking we know everything to include the ‘unknown’

DSC01308.jpg“The fact that the current situation is present indicates that Awareness has already fully accepted it. It is only an imaginary self that subsequently resists it. In fact, the imaginary separate self comes into apparent existence as that resistance.”- Rupert Spira

The general tendency is to challenge what we do not know. This is good for non-spiritual matters. However, it is problematic spiritually, only because we then deny what is always Present. Seeing what is Present does not require an advance degree in astro-physics. Seeing requires an openness that conclusions absolutely obfuscate Presence.

We are ‘that’ that we are looking for.To keep on looking elsewhare is to chase our ancestral tail without end. ‘Presence’ reveals Presence.

There is nothing to add to Fullness. Fullness Is. The Fullness Is the Priorness that never left our Presence. Seeing the Presence that never left is Seeing Self with no additions from the mind, thought, or sensations. The completeness has always been complete. The discovery is Seeing the Seeing Being Here and Now in every Moment.

NOTHING CAN BE ADDED TO FULLNESS

Fullness is everything despite being nothing. Nothing-ness contains everything as everything is manifestation. Manifestation is transitory, lacking sustenance. The sustenance ‘That Is’, is not in time. Sustenance is timelessness. 

Eternity is sustenance. Eternity has no time and space. Eternity is Isness ad infinitum. DSC01273Ergo, the impossibility of change, as typified in the transitory and temporal manifestation, is the imperative of changelessness, e.g. Fullness. Fullness is the changeless change of the universe, that is the sustainer.DSC01274.jpgNothing can be added and nothing can be subtracted from Fullness.

DSC01285.jpgFullness is unmanifested Beingness that has incredible stability due to it’s priorness to all manifestations. The stability has stability precisely because of the ‘no change’ ever-ness of the timeless ‘Now’.

The contrast between stability/instability, changelessness/change, and Fullness/emptiness is as marked as opposites get. While at the same time ‘Being’ is Being the opposite, ‘Being’ is Being with no opposites, i.e. Fullness.

DSC01267.jpgAll that, is occurring effortlessly due to the ‘no change’ in the infrastruture of the Now. Time is there to give the appearance of preventing manifestation from seemingly crashing into manifestation. Manifestation needs time in order to be manifestation, despite it’s birth from timelessness Itself.

DSC01227.jpgGiven our effort to have the base of existence, that is, eternity, as our base, we strive to achieve that, as our base. However, there is, as stated previously, nothing that can be added to ‘What already Is Now’. Any effort or will to even wish ‘that’ upon us, however munificent,is futile.

‘It’ Is already Present. No amount of ‘doing’ can do anything to bring about what is already there, regardless of any perceived need to achieve  ‘the idea’ of Fullness in ‘our’ lives. And ‘our’ is a perjorative term as it erringly assumes there is a difference from ‘not ours’. We Are ‘It’, right Now, without discrimination or ownership. 

DSC01223.jpgTo add to Fullness, again, is impossible even in our so-called lives. The central issue is -to add on anything, is immediately counterproductive to Being Being.

DSC01233.jpgAny ‘add-on’ is stepping away from Being and entering into the illusion of manifestation, especially when we take our feet out of Beingness to ‘do’ anything. Beingness must come first, as it is always prior and first with no second. Stepping out of Beingness is stepping out of Everything to engage in the futility of temporariness.

DSC01242.jpgOur identity Is Beingness, Existence, Bliss. When we identify with manifestation as our predominant identity, there is an ‘add-on’ that cannot contribute to Consciousness. Consciousness or Beingness cannot be given qualities indigenous to temporariness. To do so, is not to limit Consciousness but to limit ourselves from full Consciousness. 

DSC01239.jpgPerseveration of the illusory self by a constant barrage of likes/dislikes, wants, fear, attachment, and belief in the thought parade, does maintain the illusion and also limits access to “What Is”, our permanent nature. These ‘add-ons’ cannot stand with the contemporaneous-ness and aliveness of our Now. The add-ons are ‘dead’ weight.

DSC01219.jpgDSC01220.jpg

IMG_0258.jpgWe are the bliss that cannot be found. Finding ‘it’ would mean ‘it’ was lost. Looking for ‘it’ would mean we are not coming from ‘it’. We Are always ‘it’, even when we are obscuring ‘it’. ‘It’ Is what Is Seeing right Now. There Is no other. Nothing else can be added to ‘it’.

LOVE IS EVERYTHING FIRST

DSC01314LOVE IS EVERYTHING FIRST

The ‘Priorness’ is certainly prior. The creation is vast and inherently second. The ubiquity that is ‘Priorness’, is everything and everyone, that is, infinite potentiality and also, it’s subsequent expression.

The ubiquity and ‘Priorness’ remain unchanged, forever, regardless of time-based creation or non-creation. In using words to describe the indescribable, we say It is everything and nothing with no conflicts.

DSC01221.jpgThe point to be taken is that the primary position, as far as view is concerned, is monumental.

DSC01232.jpgThe common view we put forth to ourselves and everyone else, is that
‘Consciousness’ is in us, as a starting point. First the “us” is not separate and Is indeed Consciousness Itself. In other words, ‘Consciousness’ is in ‘Consciousness’ without a second. The ‘us’ is the separation issue.

DSC01245.jpgThe ‘us’ is not the only sticking point. It is exacerbated when the starting point is the over heralded second place of creation.

When starting at the consequence rather than the cause, we inject inherent difficulty in going back to the Source. Starting ’small’ is not starting at Vastness itself, when Vastness is the real ticket. Starting ‘small’ also has a myriad of traps that prevent the thorough inculcation of the ineffable. Ego, false self, thought-based emphasis, all have a better chance of keeping the ‘small’ small.

DSC01246.jpgConversely, starting at the vastness of the ‘Priorness’ is starting at ‘everything’. When starting at ‘everything’ nothing is eliminated , reduced , or second-ed. It Is all first without an artificial second.

Starting the ’Seeing’ at the infinite potential of pure nothingness is Source Itself. It Is Seeing from the fullness of Being first with consequence a distant second as it is.

DSC01247.jpgConsciousness Is. Happiness Is. Love Is. All 3 expressions are “Isness”. That is, they are interchangeable verbs without any noun-ing. They are all ‘Being’.

DSC01276.jpgLove is particularly instrumental in illustrating the Divine connection of Being. We Are Love loving Love at all times.

Everything is Love. Starting as ‘Everything as Love’, Love then knows no second even when downloaded into creation and things. There is no big shift necessary as everything downstream remains Love. Love appears to start big but it is only Love at It’s starting point of vastness and the fulfillment of potentiality of Self.

“To be present in and as all that is seen is to participate in life, not as a fragment amongst other fragments, but as Love, intimately one with all seeming objects and selves.” -Rupert Spira

DSC01281.jpgWhen ‘Everything’ Is Love first, then the small differences are not given any quarter to prosper. Their status is not artificially upgraded at the expense of Being Love always. The ‘small’ differences do not have the starting point they would have, if the start were at ‘small’ differences. Thereby, the ‘small’ differences are moot.

Not starting at the ‘consequence’ phase of creation is an elegant way of avoiding built-in trouble. It is so much easier when the Vastness is recognized and identified as the Us first, rather than fussing with the little ‘us’ and it’s complexities of small-ness.

Love Is the Cause and the consequence. Be Love First as the ‘Priorness’ and the ‘Vastness’ that is everything and everyone. The path is easier when there is no path. It just Is. The start is Love and Being first always as everyone and everything.

HOW ‘I’ CHANGED THE WORLD

HOW ‘I’ CHANGED THE WORLD

Who is the ‘I’? Is ‘I’ the thinker, the doer, or the receiver? The thinker, the doer, the receiver are dead nouns.

IMG_0169.jpgThey do not exist except in the story or screenplay we have created to make this movie called “Our Life”. We can replay the movie a million times, but the characters still do not exist outside of the movie. Outside the movie, there are no characters. Even if we want to believe there are characters outside the movie, it does not make the characters any more real.

The thinker, the doer, the receiver are only in a fictional movie, never having any real life or death.

DSC01193 (1).jpgIf “Our Life” is just a movie with illusory characters, then there is a start and a stop, a beginning and end, to the movie. The movie is of course in time. But where is ‘time’? Is ‘time’ part of the artificial movie while eternity contains all ‘things’ to include ‘time’? Yes.

IMG_0163.jpgBut what about the ‘I’? Is the ‘I’ illusory for 7 and one-half billion people? ‘I’ is the imaginary thinker, the imaginary doer, and the imaginary receiver receiving the pleasure and pain, giving drama and pathos to the character. Imagination is not Reality.

DSC01144.jpgThe character is analogous to the wearing of a garment. The garment appears to have life only when it is worn by the actor. It is the actor that animates the garment.

DSC01209 (1).jpgAnimation makes the world go round. Without animation, there is no life or verb-ing. The garment is a noun. There is an actor but this actor is not a noun. The presumed actor is the constant refreshing of animation. This animation never stops verb-ing or Being. Being is the noun-less actor.

When the garment is taking the identification as the ‘I’, then the cart is in front of the horse (ass-backwards). Life is hard when we engage it ass-backwards. Animation and luminance is not intrinsic to a lifeless garment. Animation and luminance is the verb-ing nature of Self.

Animation is intrinsic to animation Itself. Garments are present only for animation and cannot function well only as a garment. Ergo, the ‘I’ is not in the garment. The garment is in the ‘I’. The ‘I’ is unaffected with or without the garment.

Our common reference to ‘I’ in daily life is too often, exclusionary of animation, reducing our conscious contact to mediating dead objects/nouns. In other words, shiny objects steal the thunder of animation from animation.

“An object exists because we think about it; we don’t think about it because it exists.” -Rupert Spira

‘I’ shifting from being content to the contextual ‘I’, is essentially moving resources from the movie into Reality Itself. The characters are still not shifted out as they were never real at any point. This shifting or choosing to ’See’, is Seeing from the full acceptance of not ‘doing’ or acting from the position of the false thinker, doer, receiver, et al. This ’Seeing’ is essentially never losing sight of “What Is”. It is the’I’ that is prior to everything including garments and other objects. Here, the view changes dramatically.

DSC01111.jpgNo longer is there a dumbing down to having shiny objects speak to the false construction of ‘I’. Seeing from the ‘I’ of formlessness, is seeing the futility of embracing temporal forms that have no substance, but rather Seeing the ‘Seeing’ is the permanence of Being the Being without struggle.

Fulfillment in the act of grasping the futile goes nowhere fast. That ‘I’ has a delusionary focus making it hard to see past.

The “I Am” is the face of Emptiness/Formless/Beingness. That ‘I’ Is. That existential ‘I’ Is the animation of 7 and one-half billion garments, Being only Being. ’That’ is changing the world with innate effortlessness. And it is only a shift away from conditioning and identification.

Being the witness ‘I’, is acceptance without reservation and without the need to know ‘things’ as they appear and disappear. Grasping and pushing are the outcomes of conditioning. They are not indigenous to Being. Being is free, beautiful and effortless.

More emptiness is less story and less density. The freshness of animation is completely different moment by moment, It refreshes. When the mind (thought) says “I heard this before”, that is a shiny object with a little camouflage. The ’shift’ will See this and not engage in that undermining thought.

Beingness Is the Priorness to every thing. Seeing the Seeing, Is to ‘See’ from the Fullness. Just this shift, moves the ‘I’ to what is Real from the unreal. The same world we saw before is Now animated without any need for a character to get involved.

There is no story in Beingness, just Beingness. That Is enough. The mind (thought) will be blown and the world becomes second to Being the bright light of Consciousness, first. The same light is available for all 7 and one-half billion of Us. ’This’ ‘I’ can change the world.

HAPPINESS IS NOW

DSC01170.jpgHAPPINESS IS NOW

IMG_0139To ask when we can have happiness and under what conditions, is to not know happiness, as happiness has no basis in time and is not conditional. ‘When’ is not an appropriate question to ask, ever. To ‘seek’ happiness in time, is to look away from happiness. To find the source of happiness, is to not look for happiness in the dream, ever.

DSC01167.jpgDSC01161 (1).jpgDSC01070.jpgHappiness Is present as It is Presence Being. There is no getting happiness as it is not a gift or an object. It cannot be given as It Is everywhere/nowhere. Meaning that our True Nature is Happiness located everywhere while never being found anywhere. It cannot be found and cannot be ignored. It Is.

DSC01156 (1).jpgWhether ‘we’ realize it or not, happiness is always Present. It’s current form is formless but can be seemingly corralled by experientially feeling our ‘aliveness’, that is permanent and fresh as freshness can be. It is the subtle movement of energy moving within us and outside of us -actually not respecting any boundaries, to include the closed body/mind idea.DSC01211.jpg

The refresh rate of happiness is off the charts, with no energy ever being expended, i.e. effortlessness. Contrast that with maintaining false self and the “tornado of me”.DSC01194.jpg

DSC01208.jpgHappiness cannot be found in the past or the future, as those timezones cannot contain the vibrance of happiness. The non-Now bandwidth is too distorted and small to contain all ‘that’. The modulation of past/future as seeming reality, is only tragically reductive. The ‘aliveness’ is just not there.

DSC01125 (1).jpgIf happiness is always Present, how could an event or experience say that it was the cause?!

DSC01182.jpgThat assumption of controlling happiness is an absurdity. The permanence of happiness precludes events and experiences of defining limitations to what is unlimited. For happiness to appear in starts and fits, is not to have clarity as to what happiness Is. Happiness Is always abiding no matter what our protestations are and how hard we yell them.

DSC01206.jpgHappiness Is the immutable Priorness to the dreaming and seeming of so-called reality. The aliveness and joy of happiness is a permanent feature of the substrate of all phenomena. This bedrock cannot be found in the ‘dream’. And the ‘dream’ (unfortunately) is where we begin our search. ‘It’ Is before the dreaming and It is ultimately what the dreaming is made of. The Priorness Is Happiness. The ‘dream’ is the ‘dream’ in the ‘space’ of dreaming, which is Happiness/Priorness dreaming (verbing).

DSC01129.jpgIn other words, happiness is the starting/end point of even dreaming, but happiness never really starts or stops in the dream. Like the ’Now’, it is not linear like time. ‘Time’ is after the ’Now’ but ‘time’ is still inundated with the ’Now’. To separate happiness from the ’Now’ is to not understand Fullness. The separateness is only there in duality with the help of time.

DSC01144.jpgDSC01131.jpgHappiness Is, unabashed. It is the field of Being everything. To start every single moment from ‘Us’ (this field), is to be constantly coursing happiness with an authenticity that is so alive, it naturally attracts more of the same. The liberation is the knowing of ‘this’ happiness is accessible everywhere and at all times and places, as effortlessly as Being ‘Us’.

DSC01123.jpg“Our Self, Awareness, is like an open, empty, allowing space. As such, we resist nothing, hold nothing, seek nothing. Thus, happiness is our essential nature.” -Rupert Spira 

DSC01149.jpgDSC01175.jpgAppearing to be happy is not ‘happiness’ effortlessly happening. There is no programming happiness as there is nothing before happiness. It Is pure Being. It Is our True Nature, Now. Aliveness Being alive Is happiness.DSC01143.jpg

REACHING FOR SHINY OBJECTS

REACHING FOR SHINY OBJECTS    Aura Man.m4v

DSC01088 (1).jpgEverything 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.

DSC01101.jpgAcceptance 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.

IMG_0126.jpgUnfortunately, 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.

DSC01117.jpgThe 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’.

DSC01109.jpgConsciousness, 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.

DSC01134.jpgWhat 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.

DSC01092.jpgBeing 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.

DSC01138.jpgWhen 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.

IMG_0125 (1).jpgLosing 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.

LOVE LOVES LOVE

DSC01130.jpgLOVE 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.

DSC01085.jpgAnd 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.

DSC01132.jpgThough, 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.

DSC01107.jpgThe 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. 

DSC01137.jpgThe 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.

DSC01106.jpg“To know the world is to be the world, and to be the world is to love the world.”-Rupert Spira

DSC01179.jpgThe 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).

DSC01110.jpgThere 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

DSC01020DYING 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?

DSC01019.jpgDSC01016.jpgAre we just dying to live? 

DSC01017.jpgAre 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?

DSC01002.jpgThe 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. 

DSC01039.jpgWhen 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?!

DSC01038.jpgThe pointing is not to the ’seeming self’. The message is to the permanent Self, from the permanent Self.

DSC01037.jpgIt 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. 

DSC00999.jpgOur belief and conditioning in the illusory self cannot continue to abide , as it is ‘that’ that binds us to the false imprisonment.

DSC00998.jpgThe 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. 

DSC01026.jpgAll ‘that’ must die to live the aliveness that is always happening with complete freedom. What dies is illusion. 

DSC01028.jpgWhat is it the makes up illusion? Just illusion. Reality was never un-whole. It just appeared that way from a jaundiced view.

DSC01027.jpgThe 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.

DSC01029.jpgThe 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.

DSC01025.jpgWhen 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. 

DSC01040.jpgOpenness never pushes. Illusion constantly pushes. Openness is effortless acceptance, while the illusory self requires enormous maintenance as it is not even real.

DSC01036.jpgFull 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.

DSC01000.jpgThe Openness allows without vetting, all comers and goers. The Openness is unaffected by what is perceived, as it Is the Perceiving only.

DSC01001.jpgThe 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

GP2C2095AWARENESS 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.

GP2C2106.jpgThe 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.

GP2C2112.jpgThe 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.

GP2C2107.jpgMaintaining 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.

GP2C2104.jpgDirect 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. 

GP2C2114.jpgGP2C2099.jpgTo 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.

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. 

GP2C2113.jpgThe 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.

AM I A ‘NOUN’ OR A ‘VERB’?

AM I A ‘NOUN’ OR A ‘VERB’?

IMG_1944.JPGThat’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”.
