WHO ‘OWNS’ THOUGHTS

Thoughts happen. Do ‘they’ ever need to be ‘owned’ ? Do thoughts really ‘need’ an ‘own-er’? If thoughts do not have an ‘own-er’ then what becomes of their status?

Thoughts are ‘things’. ‘Things’ that are not ‘own-ed’ do not become unattended orphans. We give ‘our’ thoughts so much status that more often than not, they are like our children, belonging to us and identifying as us to a greater extent. Our relationship with thoughts has a direct impact on our quality of life.

Thoughts, all too often, are clearly more important than anything in our lives, even precluding a good relationship with our own family. This over- identification results in an identity that is based on a rigorous compliance to ideas and concepts, thereby trumping the freedom of just ‘experiencing experiencing’. Alienation from some family and some friends, is often based on a rigidity of our identity ‘to concepts’ rather than the free ‘use’ of ideas and not locking into conceptual frameworks.

Separation of ‘self’ into conceptual frameworks even alienates ‘us’ further into a disunity of ‘me’ among other ‘me’s’. Dualism arises easily into an ‘us’ versus ‘them’ coalitions, fracuturing the more natural ‘unity in diversity’. Thoughts, especially attachment to thoughts, are over-played tools gone amok. The ‘me generation’ is all too real.

As ‘real’ as this may appear, it really is pretty much ‘fictional’. There is no ‘us versus them’ unless we artificially create this dynamic. The ‘me’ can never be found to be existent because it never has existed. Newborns do not have a built-in fictional or any other kind of ‘me’. The ‘me’ has the existence and relevance of just another idea. Moreover, our continued identity with the ‘me’ seemingly changes all that.

When we ‘own’ our thoughts a ‘me’ is invariably created. Having no ownership ‘to’ thoughts allows thoughts to fall away on their own. The creation of ‘me’ creates an owner that corrals thoughts to support the ‘me’. Sustenance is given to thoughts by a fictional ‘me’ reinforcing both the ‘me’ and the parade of thoughts being attracted and identified with the ‘me’.

What a dysfunctional system! The parade of thoughts, led by the ‘me’, obscures the subtle silence and stillness that is the true sustenance of Being Being. The Seeing of ‘no view’ of Nothingness is seemingly overridden by a fictional character that has no real existence but does have a tiny viewpoint based on an artificial insemination of identity ‘after’ Beingness. This ‘owner’ of these thoughts has no more of a ‘hard’ reality than the specious thoughts that support ‘it’.

What experiences the object of the ‘me’ and thoughts associated with the ‘me’, is ultimately Consciousness. Consciousness is always the underlying presence to any object despite the ‘seeming’ obscuration. Consciousness cannot be touched by any obscuration.

There is no ‘ownership’ in Consciousness as ‘that’ would supplant ‘All That Is Is All That Is’, creating an impossible ‘two’. Emptiness has no content, objects, ideas and/or forms of any kind. It just ‘Is’ effortlessly. Consciousness Is Awareness Is Emptiness.

When we realize that there is no ‘one’ to own anything to include thoughts, ideas, and/or me’s, we stop stopping for those appearances that normally would drag us into the rapport that always ends badly -i.e. un-fulfillment. Not engaging by no longer ‘believing’ in a separate and false self, is ‘Seeing’ from the underlying Presence of just Being. ‘This’ Being has no stops because there is only Being becoming only Being ad infinitum.

The timeless/spaceless space of where It happens, Is forever the aliveness/fullness of the eternal Now. There is no ‘other’ to own anything, especially thoughts. Nothing owns nothing but Nothingness.

IS THERE EVER A REASON TO LOOK FOR HAPPINESS?!

Spacious Presence has no content to process. Unnecessary processing is the problem in engaging in the pursuit of so called ‘happiness’. ‘Labeling’ instead of ‘noticing’, is often the unnecessary activity that besmirches the innocence of neutrality. Content has no meaning (a la noticing) until we give it meaning (labeling). Giving ‘it’ meaning, through endless commentary is akin to having a ‘Twittter’ on the inside. Happiness needs no content whatsoever to Be.

Everything is neutral until we say it isn’t. The streaming of content appears to be necessary due to misguided ideas of silence and stillness not being enough. The ‘Now’, always still and always silent, is everything with no lack of anything. Happiness Is ‘this’ -unchained by any content and un-possessed by any one.

‘This’ absolute fullness of Totality, is commonly and seemingly upended by the temporary character in the ‘seeming movie’ called ‘life’. In order for the illusory character to survive in its imaginary state of being, it struggles to exist and find happiness as the character. There is no real hope of being ‘there’, as a separate self, pursuing self, as this imaginary character, looking for a fleeting happiness. This activity is a ‘dead end’ from start to finish. ‘Looking for happiness‘ is clearly ‘missing happiness‘.

The question is what is real and what is fake news. Happiness cannot be found as there is no ‘finder’ to find it. The ‘finder’ is not real. Having an additional separate self to ‘All That Is’, is adding to a Fullness that cannot be added to. The Fullness Is happiness exclusively, without any ‘help’ and/or ‘hope’ of an imaginary character. Pursuit of happiness through a false self only adds obscuration to what is absolute clarity and completeness of ‘Being’.

There is no reason to look for happiness. If we need a reason to search for happiness, then we are on the wrong track at the outset. At any time that we need a reason to be happy, we will always fail to find the streaming of happiness that never stops streaming.

It is an ‘alert’ when we have ‘to look’ for happiness. That tells us immediately that we are on the wrong path. There is no path to happiness. Happiness just Is happening constantly.

When we ‘hope’ for happiness we have made a conclusion that ‘this’ is not ‘it’. While in truth, ‘this’ Is ‘it’ but not from any view i.e. that is, any character in a so-called movie. When we ‘see’ from any viewpoint, we constrict and limit Self. Higher Self has no limitations or viewpoints.

When we ‘See’ from ‘Seeing’ we ‘See’ and notice from a ‘no labeling’ and/or locking into any view or viewpoint. Having ‘an experience’ is a viewpoint with a ‘viewer’. ‘Experiencing’ ad infinitum is timeless viewing as spacious Presence with no holding of any content by anyone at any time.

‘Having’ an experience of happiness engenders a self that cannot get out of self. There is no ‘having’ in happiness. There is just experiencing happiness Being happiness with no start or finish. Anything less is a lesser vehicle -not happiness.

To ‘have’ a reason for happiness to flourish is to undermine the freedom of just Being happiness. Just Being happiness does not dumb-down to any content and/or deserved-ness to Be. Happiness Is Being and Is the pure nature of Existence Itself. ‘All That Is’ does not waiver Its perennial absolutes for temporary frolics.

Happiness cannot be looked for in life. Happiness Is everpresent. And there is no reason whatsoever that happiness can be reduced to anything less than absolute Fullness abiding right Now. To start at anything less is to miss Everything That Is. This Is the starting point and ending point and no point. It Is always Here, never changing and never leaving It’s Fullness. It Is You. There is no reason for It. Be Happy always. It Is Your effortless nature.

THE DIMENSIONALITY OF NOTHINGNESS

It is ‘both’ and ‘and’. It is circularity and linearity. It is everything and nothing. It is structure without a structure. It is ‘something’ that is ‘nothing’ and at the same time ‘nothing’ being ‘something’.

When ‘It’ is full ‘It’ is empty and open and uncluttered. When ‘It’ is empty ‘It’ is everything and everywhere. When ‘It’ is happening ‘It’ never stops happening nor did ‘It’ ever start happening. When there is nothing happening there is only ‘happening’.

Every Moment is full. Every Moment is empty. ‘This’ can seemingly be described and at the same time, never can be described. ‘This’ moment is never really ‘in’ time. Albeit time is contained ‘in’ this Moment.

Feeling open-ness and emptiness is feeling nothing-ness. There is nothing there to feel except spaceless open-ness finding Itself. At the same time, there is nothing to find in open-ness. Finding ‘open-ness’ finds absolute nothing-ness. ‘Feeling’ and ‘finding’ are also not ‘It’. Search activities cannot feel or find ‘It’ or Be ‘It’. ‘It’ is not here or there.

What Is ‘before’ any ‘thing’ Is everything. What Is ‘after’ any ‘thing’ Is everything. Everything Is nothing and then ‘It’ Is everything being nothing again. There is no ‘time’ to change. Timelessness makes the most sense which doesn’t make any sense.

What can be explained does not explain anything. What cannot be explained explains everything. If ‘It’ is about explanation then nothing can be explained clearly as nothing.

‘Not’ creating time is the greatest joy of Being effortless-ness. ‘Not’ creating time is not being bound by dimensionality. When it is all Now, where is the time? Creating time is the unnecessary adding to the clutter that obscures spaceless space. Timelessness is not retreating into the story of ‘me’, which is a character in time. True identity is free of any binding, to especially include the fraility of time and the specious-ness of a character.

What ‘Is’ just ‘Is’. There is no binding by a no one because there is no ‘other’. Every moment is full unless we deem otherwise. The effort comes in the cage called ‘effort’. Effort-ing in ‘Being’ does not make any sense. When we leave the self-imposed cage of effort there is only one activity left i.e. effortlessness. Being ‘That’ is implicit.

Life is unconditional unless we impose conditions. ‘Life’ does not need a doer or a hav-er. ‘It’ just Is. Acting on our highest joy is joy acting through Us. Our highest joy is effortlessness and Love loving Itself. ‘Love’ finds no ‘other’, as all Is Love.

There are no conditions to Life as that would be a limitation on the unlimited. To throw the effortlessness of Life aside for an effort of an over-riding ‘me’, is trade for a limitation and dis-empowerment of our highest joy and effortlessness.

Life is effortlessly open, unconditional, and our true nature without any pre-conditions to include time and effort. Be ‘That’ Now, a forevering of the Fullness Itself.

DO NOTHING TO LOSE THE ‘ME’

What is happening now is always happening. To make something happen from the perspective of ‘me’, is to engage in a very parochial view. ‘That’ view is as limited as a leash on an animal. Limited because the view is separate from the greater whole. This view, has a distinct separation from an integrated whole, where everything is constantly interacting with everything else all the time.

This ‘me’ of artificial separation, is a view that implicits that the world revolves around ‘it’. It suggests an independence that has no basis in fact. It suggests that actions taken on it’s behalf have no consequence other than itself. This is not only a false separation from ‘What Is’ but also an arrogance of position above everything else and everyone else.

This view is unsustainable given the selfish consequences on a victimized world seemingly supporting the ridiculous rights of an extremist. This is a view with an obvious lack of a real concern for micro/macro systems. These mutually beneficial systems, that we are all part of, have direct ramifications for the entire planet. This implicit connection is unsustainable when a micro-view is launched as a viable choice by billions of people with a needy ‘me’.

What is happening is that there is a ‘doing’ by the false self ( aka ‘me’) to engender a proper world for ‘self’. The ‘separateness’ that is obviously then present, does not ‘see’ that its separateness is unsustainable in even achieving its own goals. When the planet dies what good is excessive self-enrichment?

Actually, losing the imaginary ‘doer’, does more to ingratiate the planet than any other act. The imaginary ‘doer’ does untold harm to self and others. Seeing that there is no ‘doer’, liberates the greater good automatically. The imaginary ‘doing’ stops. The system does not require even one ‘doer’ to ‘do’ anything. Life is the system that just happens without prompting. If no person was here, the planet would go on planet-ing.

‘Doing nothing’ implies no tyrannical ‘doer’ necessary. The ‘doer’, being an invented idea with no real basis and no real existence, is a ’cause’ without a ’cause’. Identity is with ‘All that Is’ being ‘All that Is’, period. To add to ‘that’ is to actually subtract (seemingly). ‘Me’ is a concept not a real identity.

Differences are only there when perspective is relocated into a refracted self. Awakening out of the ‘me’ has no steps because ‘It Is what It Is’ already (no ‘me’).

Trying to understand ‘this’ from the ‘me’ is only allowing limitation to put more limitation unto itself. When ‘the mind’ is trying to understand, it engenders more limitation from ‘the source’ of limitation.

We Are limitless unless and until we prescribe a ‘limitedness’. There is no awakening out of ‘me’ because there never really was a ‘real’ me. Understanding comes from Being-ness not imagination trying to understand.

Be effortlessly empty of every ‘thing’. Nothing needs to be done. The ‘Nothingness’ is Everything. It Is what Is happening.

EMOTIONS AND THOUGHTS ARE ‘IN’ AWARENESS

Why this is important, is to recognize the need for an explicit remembering of what is left when emotions and thoughts are not present. What is left is something often called ‘nothing’.

This ‘nothingness’ appears as nothing but yet is ‘something’. This ‘something’ cannot be described like an object can be described. Yet it is alive, as there is a knowing Presence. ‘This’ is what is essential yet invisible to the mind.

Between the coming/going of emotions and thoughts, what is present Is always present. The noting of ‘the Presence in absence’ of emotions/thoughts does not mean that this ‘Presence’ was ever absent. It only means that a seeming obfuscation occluded this ‘Presence’. The shallow adherence to an exclusivity of emotions and thoughts as a priori, is a choice that may or may not be apparent.

When we give a monopolistic deference to emotions and thoughts that fully occupy space, we clearly make a choice, either consciously or unconsciously, for ‘things’. Conversely, making a conscious choice for a practice of investigation and acknowledgement of ‘what’ is present, ‘that’ conscious choice, can easily reveal a false belief about the absence of Presence. ‘Presence’ is actually Being Here and being ‘something’, despite the presence and/or absence of appearances like emotions and thoughts (false beliefs).

Juxtaposing the conscious choice with the un-conscious choice, we see so staggeringly, what is up with the ‘un-conscious choice‘. That limited view hails to an exceedingly narrow viewpoint that Awareness is something outside of Ourselves. When in fact, through a little investigation, we find otherwise. Clarity is in the ‘Seeing’ that Awareness never is not present even when ‘seeming’ obfuscations like emotions and thoughts pre-occupy us. Awareness Is us always.

There is no rocket science being practiced Here. What is Here, with emotions/thoughts, is also always Here when there are no perceivable emotions/thoughts. When ‘we’ Are in Awareness at all times and all circumstances, there is nothing to do to then ‘try’ to get into Awareness. Limiting circumstances cannot change the “What Is”.

Belief can seemingly alter the Truth of ‘this’ unchanging reality. Beliefs are tools. They are Not Truths. Even ‘spirituality’ is a concept. Truths do not need words to validate Truth. Concepts are useful but at the same time ‘after-thoughts’. Truth is always first. Ideas are subsequent.

Between thoughts, before thoughts, after thoughts, Awareness Is unchangingly Here. Emotions/feelings come and go while the ‘open heart’ always remains ‘open’.

Feel the heart-space of unobstructed Awareness. Unobstructed by thought, emotion, habit, belief, and/or concept, the Truth of Awareness always abides in perennial Presence.

We are always in the presence of the Presence of Awareness, effortlessly Now. Quiet mind and open heart facilitate ‘What Is’ always Here Now despite any circumstances or lack of circumstances.

Be free of clinging to any ‘thing’. We Are already ‘In’. ‘That’ will never change.

THE TIMELESS/FORMLESS CANNOT FIT INTO A CONCEPT

Conceptual boxing of pre-ideas would pre-suppose an imposing limitation in order to be a ‘boxed’ item, in order to fit the proposed box. Or any box for that matter. A ‘box’ is a concept that has visible parameters in terms of measurement, i.e. a measurement that has distinct finite boundaries. What is before ideas has a ‘fitting problem’ conceptually.

When quantification is not possible, relative to dimensionality, conceptuality then would not be useful for finding an agreeable definition/meaning/typology for ‘pre-ideas’. Imagination and theorizing are often used to stretch an imaginary box around the cantankerous un-boxed item in question. The general rules for a scientific method are summarily and temporarily suspended for reasons of pontification until a suitable means-tested idea (box) comes forth, if ever, for those unquantifiable issues.

Awareness is the ground of all experience. This pointing ‘to’ a something, is not a concept that fits into any hard box. Awareness is not a thing or an ‘amount’ of any ‘thing’. To speak about it or try to manage it, cannot be done very successfully due to its elemental nature of everywhere/nowhere to both include and not include time. Awareness Is existence with no trace of It’s existence, except It’s formless energy i.e. resonance.

Like a fish in water, we overlook the water as if it was nothing. Awareness Is nothingness Being ubiquitous. To dismiss it for ‘matter’ is to thoroughly miss the big picture. We only see what is in the water, while the overlooked ‘water’ is metaphorically everything that matters. No water equals no fish. No Awareness, no thing.

Awareness is the source that generates all circumstances/appearances.Circumstances/appearances do not determine being-ness.

Our genuine excitement will always point Us to the best outcome possible. Our ‘excitement’ is the most ambitious tool we have. When we follow our excitement, we accept the calling card of Awareness. We are pointed to the thrill our heart feels rather than the over-dependence and over-use of ‘thinking’ it exclusively through with the mind. Heart has a concept-less feel to Knowing. This is where box-less-ness can abide.

Concepts are not very homey. There is a separation that often occurs in over-using the idea of ideas, because things get objectified. The connection to everything gets modified by a dependence on mind a la ‘overuse’, versus a direct connection with heart space. Mind actually loses objectivity because it precludes the importance of ‘no mind’ i.e. direct connection to life. Life will always be compromised when It’s fullness is not recognized. There is a place for objectivity of concepts. It is not in place of a connection with undefinable Awareness.

The Scientific method espouses ‘neutrality’. This is a legitimate starting point. The ‘Openness’ of Awareness is neutrality at the outset for everything until we declare ‘it’ otherwise. When ‘It’ Is neutrality ‘It’ Is ‘Openness’. Neutrality creates clarity. Neutrality promotes implicit peace in the present moment which makes it among the most powerful positions for change.

Connecting with the Higher Self of Openness/Neutrality relaxes us into timelessness. Opportunities are seen as viable opportunities. Life runs Itself. We abide as neutrality allowing Life to direct Life effortlessly. Relaxing into neutrality gives the clearest see-ing available. Not chasing things and ideas, avails energy to connect to Itself directly without interference of over-personal wants/desires.

The utility of concepts is useful as long as they do not take the position of alpha to omega, with no room for the pre-ideas of Awareness/Beingness. There are no limitations in concept-free consciousness. The relationship between being something and Being Nothingness is not exclusionary. It is complimentary. The neutrality is the ground that connects both to each other.

All Is One until we say it isn’t. But that does not really change reality. Only our position changes. Be free. Always Be.

STILLNESS IS NOT A DOING

Stillness has absolutely no ‘one’ being still. Silence has no ‘one’ being quiet. The ‘doing’ and the ‘completing’ of any task is not ‘It’. ‘It’ just Is. There is nothing to add to ‘It’, or ‘do’ for It, but to Be the Nothingness which ‘It’ Is already.

Stillness and Silence are not two different things. They are certainly not things independent of Us. They Are Us without the addition of things and/or other temporary structures like a ‘self’. The essence of Stillness/Silence is having no structures to attach to, that would then cause a compromise to this Fullness (from a lesser vehicle). Stillness and Silence are the same resonance, Being everything and nothing, changelessly timeless with no ‘other’.

Change is inherent in the character. The character is the vehicle for change. This vehicle moves forward in time to carry the alleged story to a foregone conclusion. The conclusion is the end of the story, the characters, and the journey, to the unchanging Stillness. This Isness is ‘seemingly’ reached through the merging of the character into pure openness.

This Stillness has never moved despite the seeming changes experienced by the character. The Stillness Is always the Stillness, not waiting for any temporary character. The character’s journey is what is terminal. When the journey ends the character is completely vanquished into the Stillness/Silence.

The character never really has a permanent existence. The illusion of the character is always an illusion, meaning that the unchanging Stillness was never effected by the status of where the character was or wasn’t. ‘That’ would be a charade relative to the limited ‘idea’ of a very impermanent character. The character was a ticket to nowhere but Here. ‘Here’ never really waited for a non-existing thing. ‘Waiting’ would have to be an illusion (or character) pretending to be permanent.

The character has never been real, nor will it ever become real. To wit, the character never gets enlightened because all characters are illusions with a pretense. Believing in a character is tantamount to a fairy tale. There is absolutely no evidence to back up this belief. Believing cannot get past the character. Believing is indigenous to the character.

There is no need for a belief to Know the Stillness. When there is an unclogging of Openness/Stillness/Silence, then there can be enough spaceless space to Be. Losing the idea and belief of a permanent character is at the heart and nexus of illusion/Reality.

There is no ‘doing’ It by the imagined ‘doer’. There Is only ‘Being It’ just happening, through the vehicle. Through the vehicle means ‘unimpeded’ space for the aliveness of the Resonance to flow effortlessly with no seeming preferences.

Be the Stillness that is always complete and unfettered despite seeming circumstances. It Is ‘this’ flow that has no ‘doing’ to it.

WHEN EVERYTHING IS DISASSEMBLED NOTHINGNESS REMAINS

Does the temporary ever become permanent? Does the permanent ever become temporary? Or does everything stay in its lane? When the temporary expires its timeline, what remains? When the permanent is revealed has anything really changed?

What appears is the appearance of assembly/disassembly of the temporary. When we concern ourselves too much with the temporary, can it really effect the permanent? Or in other words, can the permanent ever change?

The changeless permanence is the fallback position of all things temporal. Appearances are not permanence per se but permanence is behind all appearances, yes? Where else would all the temporal ultimately go to? Permanence always is unaffected by the impermanence of impermanence.

The backdrop of everything is the container of everything. What Is permanent and absolute? That which does not change i.e. Nothingness. What ‘dies’ is a something that is an appearance. This cameo of appearance is not intended to do anything as it simply always points to the permanence of Being Being changeless Being. The container of every thing is always Nothingness which is still is something/nothing.

The temporary is Nothingness in disguise as a ‘something’, stretching the fabric a bit, to make a point of ‘not two’. Where one ‘looks’ determines what ‘Is’ Seen.

The goofiness of believing in the overt temporariness of being a ‘doer’ is underwhelmingly comfortable and often clearly uncomfortable. It is a loss leader for Being Beingness. Seeing from the ‘appearance’ is overt limitation. Seeing from ‘Seeing’ is a kind disregard for being a limited appearance, aka ‘goofiness’. Where ‘We’ look from is monumentally important.

At birth, we arrive unassembled. Assembly then immediately begins its process, taking ‘time’ to inculcate a temporary person, who in fact is Beingness in human clothes assimilating in a society of overt temporariness. This assembly process does not have to have a virtual elimination of Being Beingness. Although in many cases this appears to have happened (temporarily). Beingness can never be entirely eliminated in this assembly process.

Disassembly of the person holding views, opinions, and other preferences (vasanas) is most often disrupted at the transition states of birth/death. Upon reentry into the orbit of birth, the act of holding stuff, including old previous birth stuff, can be retaken. It is less of a viable option when the seeing of ‘Seeing’ is contemporaneously employed, especially so, in this physically incarnated state. One does not have to ‘wait’ in time for death/birth to have the opportunity for losing the act of continuously holding stuff.

Disassembly is a clear option/ability available to all in this particular incarnation. There is no imperative to wait, later in time for some future opportunity, to rid Ourselves of the tedious perseveration of a false self. In the timelessness of Nothingness, the disassembly of the ‘false self’ is immediately tenable. This opportunity is always existing in this moment of Now.

What is ‘disassembled’ is our non-essential nature. What is left needs no assembly (unlike Ikea furniture). Nor are there instructions for assembly. The assembly of Nothingness leaves nothing to complete. It Is Now complete -meaning ‘this’ particular moment. Nothing ‘to do’/no doer, all Now.

When ‘disassembly’ occurs in our waking state, we find a loss of fascination with the seeming false self. What ‘was’ disassembled was the idea of the false self. That would be a rebirth in ‘this’ incarnation without going through the birth/death cycle. The ‘backstage’ of Reality is ‘Seen’ by the pure Seeing. The play of the character is no longer given credibility as the ‘doer’.

Nothingness is found to be somethingness that is formlessly Present. And ‘that’ is enough as ‘that’ Is the Fullness without any need for ideas about the Fullness. Be ‘That’ always Now. No instructions nor assembly necessary.

LOSE WHAT YOU HAVE -NOT WHAT YOU ARE

This’ is not for the ‘person’. ‘This’ is not bound by an idea ‘from’ the ‘person’. The ‘person’ being the imaginary character in the movie called ‘your life’. Un-boundedness is never bound, by anything.

The ‘person’ does not ‘get’ Awareness. Awareness appears as the ‘person’ and expresses Itself through the ‘person’. The ‘person’ becomes the animated vehicle for Awareness. The vehicle, the person, never becomes or ‘has’ Awareness. If the vehicle ‘had’ Awareness then Awareness would be owned by the vehicle. There is no need for ‘owning’ or ‘having’ in Awareness. Awareness Is All that Is. And there is no one to ‘own’ anything (to especially include a ‘person’). Awareness Is All. End of story.

‘Having’ is a stoic belief that immediately undermines boundless freedom. Once you ‘have’ then you ‘own’, which results in a separation and a loss rather than a more natural effortless-ness and immediate understanding of the integration of Self always Being Self. ‘Having’ anything is an implicit owning of an imaginary belief, especially a belief in a separate self. ‘Having’ is a clear separation from ‘Being’, for which ‘Being’ always ‘has’ only nothing-ness.

Nothingness Is already everything, thereby eliminating the going into a ‘having’ of anything, by Nothingness. Lose the ‘having’. Freedom has no dictator i.e. a character. Boundless freedom is nothing/everything.

Awareness Is completely Present Now. To go to ‘time’ is to go into distortion to find clarity. All the while, this clarity is Present without going through any door. To suggest we need to ‘get’ something to have clarity, is to miss the obviousness of the presence of clarity.

Awareness is definitely not for the person. Awareness is not found in a ‘person’. The ‘person’ is in Awareness. Awareness is not bound by a phenomenal time-based idea called a ‘person’. You can only lose what you ‘have’ not ‘what you are’. If you don’t ‘see It’ you are looking ‘from it’. Be ‘before’.

Have nothing. Hold nothing. Be everything. No effort or ‘person’ can get you to where You already Are. ‘No effort’ Is just Being.

EMPTINESS HOLDS NOTHING

Holding anything would immediately change the status of ‘Emptiness’ to something more full; aka content. The steadfastness of Emptiness is its glory. The immutability to persist under all and/or any conditions, is its value.

Emptiness Is Us. It Is Us even before existence, given existence is something to Be. Nothingness, Being Emptiness, Is nothing that can be quantified. There is nothing, let alone a thought, that can cage It. It Is undefinable freedom -and ‘that’ is too much to reduce to a something.

There is no achievement in Emptiness. That would undermine the Fullness of Emptiness. The moving and changing indicative of worldliness, is not a distraction nor a goal to Emptiness. ‘That’ is an underscoring of what Emptiness Is and Is not.

Seeming achievements/lack of achievement, have no consequence on the Fullness. The temporariness of what is accomplished /not accomplished, has absolutely no bearing on the Emptiness/Fullness/ Timelessness. All ‘that’ is just what ‘that’ is. ‘That’ has no ties into what Is immutable. Immutability cannot be immutable if It Is not immutable. Any give on immutability would mean all would be mutable.

This just means that where we find Ourselves, serves us accordingly. The fragility of over-identification as a person has profound implications for a life well lived. Living for the person has marked differences than Life living through Us. Finding Ourselves as Ourselves is completeness (never found nor lost).

The body is akin to conduit for electricity. The conduit is lifeless without electricity. Bringing Life into the world is meaningful for daily life. Worshipping the conduit is a critical error of mistaking the person (body) for Life electrified by Life Itself. Life directs Itself through the body and then the body channels this energy. Life Itself Is Us -not the body from where it appears to be conducted to/from.

Emptiness is story-free and before thought. Unconditional Self Is Life Itself with no words to describe It. Here there is nothing missing except ‘the person’ who is fictional. The ‘thought’ that I am a person, is ‘Seen’ from ‘Seeing’. ‘Seeing’ is not a fictional ‘see-er’. ‘Seeing’ is indigenous to’Being’ and ‘Emptiness’ both of which have no form.

Form has a conduit-like presence. Formlessness Is within all temporary forms. ‘A person’ is certainly a temporary form. Achievement is temporary. Formlessness cannot be achieved. ‘You’ Are, with nothing missing or to be achieved. ‘You’ never become someone as changelessness never changes.

Now never does future or past. There is no ‘doing’ as a person in the Now. Bottom line is that one cannot hold on to Emptiness as there is nothing to hold on to and no person to ‘do’ it. Now is timelessly complete.

A person with thoughts and ideas is nothing to hold on to nor to shun. Appearances of thoughts of self are mere apearances of fictional concepts that are non-existent. Before thoughts and ideas of self, ‘We’ exist formlessly. The perennial non-holding of higher Self allows Formlessness to be unbound effortlessly.

Attach to the non-attachment of Emptiness. Attaching to the openness of absolute nothingness is the ticket where no baggage is allowed. Empty Is Fullness Now and forever. Less bags more effortlessness.
