A world in transition? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After Thought #49

There is no mind.

 

Mind is an idea that arises in awareness built on a false foundation called “I”.

 

In the flame of attention the “I” dissolves into awareness and awareness dissolves into nothing, from whence it came.

 

Thought and thinking do not give rise to reality. 

 

It’s the [power] of Being that authors and animates thought and thinking, not the other way around.

The mind has nothing to offer you.

 

There is no blessing or blasphemy in thoughts whether they be positive or negative.

 

The blessing or blasphemy in thought and thinking is that they both arrive in the space of awareness.

 

Give attention to awareness. 

Lose yourself in awareness,

not in the thought or thinking.

 

The doorway to freedom lies in the portal of awareness that at once bridges you to the kiss of Being.

After Thought #47

Most human being are slaves to their mind and the identification that occurs with/to everything that arises in mind.

 

Reality cannot be managed by thinking or any thought what-so-ever.

 

Reality cannot be managed by the so-called mind, method, thinking, theory or practise.

 

Thought, thinking, theory, method and practise arise in the belly of Being, not the other way around.

 

 

 

Without thoughts,

 

who are you?

 

Without feelings,

 

who are you?

 

Without emotions and perceptions,

 

who are you?

 

Without associations,

 

who are you?

 

Without memories,

 

who are you?

 

Without intentions or desires,

 

who are you?

 

Without fear and anger, sadness or joy,

 

who are you?

 

 

Does it take thought, feeling, emotion, perception, association, memory, intention, desire, fear, anger, sadness or joy to Be?

 

 

 

Without your beliefs and philosophies,

 

who are you?

 

Without jealousy or passion,

 

who are you?

 

Without your paths, pujas or practice,

 

who are you?

 

Without meaning or purpose,

 

who are you?

 

Without judgment and confusion, clarity or understanding,

 

who are you?

 

Without your body,

 

who are you?

 

 

Does it take belief, philosophy, jealousy, passion, path, puja, paractise, meaning, purpose, judgment, confusion, clarity, understanding or body to Be?

 

 

 

Without your Gods and Goddesses, Angels and Demons,

 

who are you?

 

Without your teachings,

 

who are you?

 

Without your mantra, yantra or tantra,

 

who are you?

 

Without Karma and Kundalini,

 

who are you?

 

Without Chakras and Mudras,

 

who are you?

 

Without your convictions,

 

who are you?

 

 

Does it take Gods, Goddesses, angels, demons, teachings, mantras, yantras, tantras, karma, chakras, mudras or conviction to Be?

 

 

 

 Without the bubble of your mind and all that arises as a bubble in that perceived mind,

 

who are you?

 

 

Who comes first?

 

 

In the absence of the mind,

 

YOU ARE!

 

 

Stand in Being…

After Thought #46
January 14, 2011

 

[We] all live in our [own] little sandbox of conventional thinking; a collection and fusion of ideas and beliefs which induce personal and collective suffering.

 

[We] cannot escape the hynosis of social conditioning through the use of banaide tools like affirmations or posative thinking.

 

[We] cannot be free from the mind by continuing to placatte it with the puja of furthur thoughts or thinking which inevatably only perpetuates its illigitamate authority.

 

Each thought that appears to make up a mind must be confronted directly for what it is.  Stripped naked in awareness, each fleeting thought, idea or belief can be seen for what it is: an impulse of wholeness ~ masquerading as an illusion that [we] call mind…

Please don’t take this personally but [you’re] not essential. 

The person [you] imagine [yourself] to be is simply not essential.

 

It’s only the spell of thinking that makes [you] believe that [you] are essential; that [you] are important; that [you] can make a difference in this world.

 

It’s only [your] self-absorbed, narcissistic idea of separation that continues to enmesh [you] in [your] self engendered delusion.

 

No person has ever made a difference in life.

For anything to happen, the entire Universe must conspire for that happening to unfold. 

 It is the Universe and not a person that appears to “make” things happen.

It’s the spell of consciousness that allows [you] to imagine that self centred problems can be solved by conditioned, self centred thinking.

 

If the spell of thinking is broken, [you] can see through the distortion of “I” based thinking, “I” based perception and the greatest challenge of all, “I” based spirituality.  Then a problem is no longer a problem, it just is…
