Disharmony...

All the disharmony of the world caused by religious differences is the result of
man's failure to understand that religion is One, truth is One, God is One; how
can there be two religions?

Bowl of Saki, May 30, by Hazrat Inayat Khan




Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:

God is one, the Truth is one. How can there be two religions? There is one
religion, the only religion. ... Yes, we are living in different lands, but
under one sky. So, we have many churches, but one God; many scriptures, but one
wisdom; many souls, but one spirit, the only Spirit of God.

The one Spirit of life is given different names, the sacred names. We more
easily recognize the [Spirit of life] by the particular name to which we are
accustomed. So far we are right, but the mistake we make, and it is to our loss,
is to ignore or deny the same truth because it is given to us in another form
and under another name. We limit it. We say the truth existed only in that
period when certain teachers came to the world, and that after that it stopped.
But the spirit of illumination can never stop as long as life goes on.
Illumination has continued from the beginning, and will always continue until
the manifestation ends; so long will the spirit of illumination continue to
spread out its rays.

We accept some forms and ignore others. It is the natural tendency of mankind.
It is this that accounts for so many religions. Even if a person cannot see
things in this light, he can at least be tolerant of other people's religions.
He can respect the religion because he sees others respect it, even if he
himself has no respect for its teacher. After all, spirituality means respect,
advancement. Man shows his evolution according to his respect, his
consideration, his thoughtfulness. If we could only develop that faculty in our
mind, it would not matter not believing or recognizing the Spirit of Guidance
shown in different human forms. If we held our own teacher or master in the
greatest esteem it would do a great deal of spiritual good. The disharmony of
the world is usually caused by religious differences, as were the wars of
ancient times. The differences are caused by men failing to understand that
religion is one, truth is one, God is one. How can there be two religions?

God is one, truth is one, and the religion is one. There cannot be two
religions; that is the confusion, the illusion of the human mind. When people
cannot understand each other, then they say, 'Your religion is different, my
religion is different.' But the difference does not belong to God, it belongs to
the earth. ... And in the realization of God, in the love of God, what are we
expected to do? We are expected to unite with one another in the thought of God,
in the love of God. ... All wisdom is from God; from whatever scripture,
whatever religion, whatever form, it all comes from one source.



2012 Ascention...

There is much written about the frequency of the earth increasing into the state of the fourth dimension...
Is this true?.. I don't really know..
the fourth dimension is the state of individual ego within the higher frequency and low materiality of existence..

This is a better existence that that of the lower frequency of the third dimension but the lifetime is much longer.. as much as ten thousand years..
The question is; " Do you want to stay within this state of duality another ten thousand years?"

We are only speaking of the next dimension.. there are many beyond that..
How many lifetimes will it take to finally surrender the ego of duality?

You will be given a decision at this point of evolution..
Do you want to enter the next dimension or do you desire to stay within the third dimension..

This is an important decision..
This is an action of your 'free will'..

You as the Reality of Divine Consciousness has the only power of decision..
This is why, you will be asked..

I have decided to bypass my own decision..
I am going to give my decision to Divine Consciousness..

I will stand within the Energy of Unconditional Love and allow God to decide..
" Not my will, but thy Will be Done"....

Movements of the mind...

Let there be a silent understanding and no more. Away with all thinking and explaining. Then we may say that the Way of Words has been cut off and movements of the mind eliminated. This Mind is the pure Buddha-Source inherent in all men. All wriggling beings possessed of sentient life and all the Buddhas and Boddhisattvas are of this one substance and do not differ. Differences arise from wrong-thinking only and lead to the creation of all kinds of karma.

All the visible universe is the Buddha; so are all sounds; hold fast to one principle and all the others are Identical. On seeing one thing, you see ALL. On perceiving any individual's mind, you are perceiving ALL Mind. Obtain a glimpse of one way and ALL ways are embraced in your vision, for there is nowhere at all which is devoid of the Way. When your glance falls upon a grain of dust, what you see is identical with all the vast world systems with their great rivers and mighty hills. To gaze upon a drop of water is to behold the nature of all the waters of the universe.

Only come to know the nature of your own Mind, in which there is no self and no other, and you will in fact be a Buddha."

~Huang Po

The pure mind...

"The pure mind sees things as they are--bubbles in consciousness.
These bubbles are appearing, disappearing and re-appearing, without
having real being. No particular cause can be ascribed to them, for
each is caused by all and affects all. Each bubble is a body and all
these bodies are mine."

..... Sri Nisargadatta

Words from the Buddha...

If a man who enjoys a lesser happiness beholds a greater one, let him leave aside the lesser to gain the greater.


I reached in experience the nirvana which is unborn, unrivalled, secure from attachment, undecaying and unstained. This condition is indeed reached by me which is deep, difficult to see, difficult to understand, tranquil, excellent, beyond the reach of mere logic, subtle, and to be realized only by the wise.


It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.


There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.


What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.


Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.


He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.


In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.


Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.


The mind is the source of happiness and unhappiness.

ego vanishes...

Standing on the bare ground, a mean egoism
vanishes. I become a transparent eyeball; I
am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal
Being circulate through me; I am part or particle
of God.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self...

It is not by self-realization that man realizes God, it is by God-realization
that man realizes self.

Mytria/Mytre: The Beginnings of our Ascension...

Channeled by Dr Suzan Caroll

May 22, 2012

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.co.uk/

We speak with you now about the beginnings of our ascension.

Once we arrived at our new home in the Pleiades, we were finally free of war and fighting. With this freedom from fear, we could hope for a better life. We Pleiadians are so involved with our Earth Family because we totally understand the state of mind of many of you.

We know how it feels to be offered hope of a new life and not be totally sure that we could trust this possibility. How could we take the risk that life could be filled with peace and calm when there had been so much war and disruption?

In fact it took us several generations, which are longer than yours as we live much longer, to settle into the concept of the freedom to choose peace, love, happiness and joy. We understand how our dear Earth Family must decide to choose to live the hope that appears to be before you.

After all, you have lived in illusion for myriad incarnations, so what if you believe in yet another illusion? At least this possible illusion is filled with multidimensional light and unconditional love. After living many years, and many lives, in darkness and fear, how can you turn away from hope?

It was the same for us. Also, we were very busy building a new life for ourselves, just as you will soon be doing. The building of our new world kept us occupied, however the challenges of creating a new society were an ongoing challenge.

For generations, we had traveled from place to place and lived entire lifetimes on Starships. Hence our society was based on a smaller world. On the other hand, we did have long periods in which we were planet-bound, but we kept running into the same issue, again and again. We would find peace, then “they”—usually the Dracs—would find us, and the fighting would begin again.

Even though we appeared to be hidden away, there was little security as we had found “safe havens” before, only to be invaded again. Because of our many dashed hopes, we had become attached to a sense of victimization. We felt as if we had little control over the outcome of our lives, our homes and our society.

Do you see why we are coming to assist our Earth Family? We are your ancestors, and we know that we are responsible for the example that we set for those who we left behind. Yes, we did abandon many of you in our constant search to find security.

Somehow, through the process of creating a new reality and having freedom from fear and victimization, we realized that what we had accused others of doing to us, we ourselves had done to others. In other words, in order to change our reality we had to change our self. Specifically, we had to change our state of consciousness.

We had felt like “prey” for so long that we had forgotten the damage that we had done to beloved Gaia, who had offered us a safe home. If we did not change, and we had to do so very quickly, we would do to our new world what we had once done to Earth.

We had left our home world of Lyra to find peace, but we did not have peace within. We had fear. Finally, we were learning that we could only create in our reality what we held in our hearts and minds. This information was very difficult for us to accept. When a society is based on war and victimization for a very long time, it becomes very difficult to find the enemy within. Only those of us who had a spiritual connection could begin to look into our own darkness. Fortunately, that was enough to turn the tide of our creations.

Those of us who had remembered our connection to Spirit, began to go inside ourselves to ask for forgiveness for what we had done to others. Amazingly, we all got the same answer, but in different words.

The message that we got was, “You must forgive your self in order to accept forgiveness from another.” It was one thing to ask forgiveness of our Spirit, but another thing to ask our selves for forgiveness. First, we had to decide exactly what we needed to forgive ourselves for. We began to gather in small groups to find the answer to this question.

Fortunately, our group energy allowed us to go back into the history of our civilization in a detached fashion. Once we realized what we had done to others, we sought the answers as to why we had done these things. We realized that our sense of feeling victimized gave us permission to perceive others as an enemy without adequate proof. Because of this decision making process, we had attacked without trying to talk and abandoned without trying to heal.

This realization was a vital realization, as it became a basis of our society. Once we found that our actions were based on fear, we saw that we had gone against the very core of nature, which we had thought has been based on love and acceptance.

Therefore, now we needed to go back into our history and re-do our mistakes within our consciousness, so that our new habitual responses could be changed. Therefore, we reviewed our past to discern what decisions were made from a fearful stance, and which decisions were based on correct perceptions of our “enemies.” After we determined which were our fearful decisions, we re-considered how we could have used communication and healing instead.

We were able to discern situations with the Service-to-Self enemies in which we responded with powerful tactics, and the situations in which we became afraid and ran or attached without adequate thought. Going over our past, allowed us to gain the lessons that were hidden in our “mistakes” and the wisdom that we gained from our effective choices.

Once we brought this information back to our people, it became easier for them to uncover their own guilt, anger and fear. Once others experienced and released their emotions, they too felt a need to go inside and confer with their Spirit.

First our communications with Spirit were mostly individual, but gradually small groups began to gather to release the old and feel the blessings of Spirit. The groups felt so full of Spirit that they wanted to show their joy by dancing, singing, painting, writing and many other creative expressions. The joy of expressing our creativity released a dark cloud from our consciousness that we had forgotten was there.

Suddenly, our fear and sense of victimization was gone. We were too busy creating a new life to think about fear. Since more and more of us were developing an intimate relationship with Spirit, we could surrender protection of our world and society to Spirit. We also released that service to those who discovered that protecting others was their greatest expression of creativity.

We were finally settling into our new home and expanding our Galactic Duties when we began to discover a small voice within. We had started the next phase of our ascension without ever knowing that our process had even begun.

We are with you always, for we share your Spirit,

The Self is the Heart...

The Self is the Heart. The Heart is self-luminous.
Light arises from the Heart and reaches the brain, which is
the seat of the mind. The world is seen with the mind, that is, by the
reflected light of the Self. It is perceived with the aid of the mind. When
the mind is illumined it is aware of the world. When it is not itself so
illumined, it is not aware of the world. If the mind is turned in towards
the source of light, objective knowledge ceases and Self alone shines
forth as the Heart.
The moon shines by the reflected light of the sun. When the sun has
set, the moon is useful for revealing objects. When the sun has risen,
no one needs the moon, although the pale disc of the moon is visible
in the sky.
So it is with the mind and the Heart. The mind is useful because of its
reflected light. It is used for seeing objects. When it is turned inwards,
the source of illumination shines forth by itself, and the mind remains
dim and useless like the moon in day-time.

Dear heart...

Dear heart, where do you find
the courage to seek the Beloved
when you know He has annihilated
so many like you before?
I do not care, said my heart,
my only wish is to become
one with the Beloved.

Unconditional Love...

These Two Words are all the education that you need within this life..

We have thousands of books of spirituality and bibles from thousands of years of inquiry..

They are all the paths of humility called Love..

This Humility of Love is called the 'state of non-ego'..

This state of non-egoic desire and attainment is the only reason that We are here..


The seach for Love is found within almost all humans..

Why do people seek something that is not visible and yet contains the only Joy found within this manifestation ?..

The answer is that the Love that we seek is really the Joy of Reality or what some call God..


The answer to the Knowledge of life and God is found within the words: 'Unconditional Love'..

Unconditional Love and non-egoic consciousness are One and the Same..

You stop judging others and begin to see the pain and struggles within others..

The ego was the Judge..

Love sees no reason to Judge..


God does not Judge you, as there is no one to Judge..

Karma becomes just a false myth..

You have returned to the place of non personality..

The place called " Unconditional Love".........

Yoga...

All yoga and mystic methods, as well as certain religious practices, although of the highest value as preliminary disciplines, are not the ultimate ends in themselves. If one has sufficient sharpness of mind--that is, sustained concentration on abstract themes--and sufficient freedom from any kind of egoistic preconception whatever, one can instantly grasp the truth and realize it. But who has that? Hence, these various methods of developing ourselves, these yogas, have been prescribed to assist us. Their practice takes a long time, it is true, but the actual realization is a matter of a moment. Nor can it ever be lost again, as can the feeling-ecstasies of the mystics. All these doctrines have their place for people of different degrees of understanding, and it is our duty not to destroy the faith of those who cling to them. But for those who want the highest Truth, and who are prepared to part with their illusions for its sake, there is only "the straight and narrow way, and few there be that find it." It is narrow only because the ego must be left outside the gate; it is straight because it goes direct to the final truth. — Notebooks Category 20: What Is Philosophy? > Chapter 4: Its Realization Beyond Ecstasy > # 8 ......

The Story of Zen...

Not a single one of you people at this meeting is unenlightened. Right now, you're all sitting before me as Buddhas. Each of you received the Buddha-mind from your mothers when you were born, and nothing else. This inherited Buddha-mind is beyond any doubt unborn, with a marvelously bright illuminative wisdom. In the Unborn, all things are perfectly resolved. Bankei (1622-1693) was a immensely popular and influential teacher who spoke directly. avoiding sutras and ceremony. He adhered to no particular school and his teaching was remarkably individual and raw, of the essence of Zen. His concern was with the truth as an immediate experience, not with a systematic approach to a distant goal. He preached what he had discovered in his own experience—"the unborn" or "the birthless Buddha-mind"—and he spoke in plain language that anyone could understand. Teaching to all Bankei became a Zen man of the people. He spoke to crowds of ordinary country folk and as Zen students. With his simple and direct language, he impressed people with his sincerity. Bankei's Zen was refreshingly clear and relatively simple. You didn't have to be learned, live in a monastery or even necessarily consider yourself a Buddhist to practice them effectively. Bankei was approached by a priest who boasted that his master possessed miraculous powers. This master could take a brush and write Amida in the air and the word would appear on a sheet of paper in the distance. Challenged to equal this, Bankei replied, "My miracle is that when I feel hungry I eat, and when I feel thirsty I drink." Bankei’s broke completely from the predominating koan system. Rather than urging his followers to seek a hard-won satori through koan meditation, he exhorted people to experience the simple truth directly. Bankei assumed his own conviction would persuade others of the value of his method. I won't tell you that you have to practice such and such, that you have to uphold certain rules or precepts or read certain sutras or other Zen writings, or that you have to do zazen. . . . If you want to recite sutras or do zazen, observe precepts, recite the Nembutsu or the Daimoku [the mantra of the Nichiren sect], you should do it. If you're a farmer or a tradesman and you want to work your farm or your business, then go ahead, do it; whatever it is, that will be your personal samadhi. Long and arduous discipline was not required, Bankei taught. Even though he himself had undergone terrible hardships before realizing the Unborn, he assured people that it wasn't necessary or even advisable to follow his own example. He had had to struggle because he could not find a teacher able to teach him what he had to know, but now Bankei was there to point to the truth that was readily available. Life lived from the Unborn would bring experiences to deepen the appreciation and inspire one-pointedness. All I do is comment directly on people themselves. That takes care of everything. I don't have to quote other people. So you won't find me saying anything about either the 'Buddha-Dharma' or the 'Zen Dharma.' Abide in the Unborn Bankei's entire teaching can be reduced to the single exhortation: "Abide in the Unborn!." The term "Unborn" had been used in Buddhism previously to suggest that which is intrinsic, original, uncreated. But Bankei was unique in using the term as the core of his teaching. Bankei didn't teach that one should try to obtain the Unborn; rather one should simply abide in it. The Unborn is not a condition to be created; it is already, complete and perfect—the mind just as it is. Unborn and imperishable Is the original mind. Earth, water, fire and wind— A temporary lodging for the night. But, of course. we have forgotten how to be spontaneous and natural in our lives. So Bankei taught "letting thoughts (and physical sensations) arise or cease just as they will." In response to circumstances thoughts and feelings come and go. While these are neither good nor bad in themselves, we are slaves to our responses. Failing to see them as merely passing reflections, we obstruct the free flow of the mind. We need only to step aside. If you think the mind That attains enlightenment Is 'mine', your thoughts Will wrestle with one another. These days I am not bothering about Getting enlightenment all the time, And the result is that I wake up in the morning feeling fine. To those who listened to his talks he demonstrated this by having them notice that while they listened to him speaking they spontaneously registered and identified everything else around them—the sounds of birds, colors and aromas, the weather, the other people around them. All this happens, Bankei pointed out, without any conscious effort. It simply happens, and that, Bankei is how the Unborn functions. When someone tosses you a tea bowl— Catch it! Catch it nimbly with soft cotton, With the cotton of your skilful mind. No special practices If one is truly natural and innocently spontaneous, the Unborn will appear. As we have seen throughout this course, the idea of the Unborn or the Unborn Buddha Mind is a central theme running through Zen teachings. Bankei brought a fresh vitality to this by urging people not to see the Unborn as something to attain or even something to try to be. Rather, Bankei taught, the Unborn is already present, perfect and complete. It is, in fact, the core of one's being. Instead of struggling to do or become something, one needs to cease struggling entirely. If one is truly natural and innocently spontaneous, the Unborn will appear. The key to realization is not some method or practice, however helpful these may be, but letting go of everything which is not the Unborn. This involves no special method as typically understood; it involves the total openness of one who has no presumed goal, intention, desire or wish. Letting go is possible because of the nature of the mind. When your study Of Buddhism is through You find You haven't anything new. Not attaching to any practice included Bankei's rejection of a narrow or formalized notion of zazen meditation. Bankei neither repudiated nor insisted upon zazen practice. Focus on a particular posture or concentration practice was beside the point. As for zazen, since za (sitting) is the Buddha Mind's sitting at ease, whilst Zen (meditation) is another name for Buddha Mind, the Buddha Mind's sitting at ease is what is meant by zazen. And meditation "shouldn't be limited to the time you sit meditating" in the meditation hall. When you are abiding in the Unborn, all the time is zazen. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the Ashoka online course The Story of Zen

Cooperation not competition...

The law of the universe is cooperation and
not competition. It is not warfare. That is the
law of the universe, the total solidarity for
which the prayers of the ancient sages were
directed in such scriptures as the Vedas. The
Rigveda concludes with a prayer for universal
cooperation, collaboration not merely in a
social manner, but even in the field of thinking,
in collective aspiration and all activity.

Facets of Spirituality
Complied by S. Bhagyalakshmi
Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi, 1986

The ego is persistant...

Posted by Steve Beckow
Sri Ramakrishna
Perhaps you laughed yesterday when I mentioned Oil Can Harry, the ego, the shadow side. (1) And for sure there’s something to laugh about in watching us act like the ego.
But there’s also another side which is anything but laughable.
I’ve actually seen the face of my ego perhaps fifteen years ago and that was no laughing matter. Scared me silly when it happened. I was writing a dictionary on the ego and, probably because that study recreated it fairly well, I actually one day saw its face confronting me.
That was a scarey sight. It was flaming red, except for parts of it that were in shadow, which were black. It had blood-red eyes and kind of went, “ARRRHHHHHH!” at me when I looked at it.
Wow! Scared me straight! Almost. But then over time I forgot, as so many of us do. The sight faded into memory and then out of memory and the ego carried on.
In my opinion, the ego is composed of three things. Not the ego in its seed or latent state, which apparently lasts well past certain stages of enlightenment. But the ego in its active, awakened state.
(1) Vrittis. Vrittis or waves in the mind; i.e., thoughts. The action of the mind, and particularly its desires, calls forth the ego and constitutes its “body,” so to speak. Not only are we quite capable of carrying on with a quiet mind, but the knowledge of who we are can only arise in the still pond of the quiet mind.
(2) Sankaras. Sankaras or sensations on the physical body constitute its direct products. The Vipassana meditator follows the rising, persistence, and falling away of sensations on the body and in doing so teaches the mind the impermanence of desires; in fact, the impermanence of all things, which Buddhists call anitya (impermanent) in Sanskrit and anicca in Pali. When we watch sensations arise on the body without reacting, we reduce our stock of sankaras and thereby quiet the mind in turn.
(3) Vasanas. Vasanas or reactive habit patterns constitute its persistent residue or precipitate. Vasanas are the sleeping volcanoes which go off when triggered by an unpleasant situation in the present which has some qualities which remind us of the original traumatic incident at the heart of the vasana. By being with and observing our vasanas when they go off, we complete them and reduce our stock of them too, which again quiets the mind.
Short of Ascension, if I want the ego to go back to its seed state and not emerge again, I’d have to eliminate these three, as the Buddha did. No vrittis, sankaras, or vasanas can remain, as they do not in the natural state of the mind, which non-dualists call Sahaja. Complete quietness of mind is the aim.
As Krishna put it, “the light of a lamp does not flicker in a windless place,” the light of the lamp signifying enlightenment and the windless place representing the mind swept clean of these three impurities. (2) In that state, the ego would return to its seed state, or so I believe.
Sri Ramana Maharshi
Sri Ramakrishna held the ego to be the cause of duality. According to him: “If God keeps the ego in a man, then He keeps in him the sense of differentiation.” (3) Immediately when the ego says “I,” there arises the other.
He compared the ego to “a stick that seems to divide the water in two. It makes you feel that you are one and I am another.” (4) Moreover, according to him, “ignorance lasts as long as one has ego. There can be no liberation as long as the ego remains.” (5)
Interestingly, if I’m correct that the ego is coterminous with movement in the mind, with its accompanying sensations and habit patterns (and I may be wrong), then one could also say that so long as there is movement in the mind, ego will arise, and with it duality, and there cannot be liberation.
According to the Vipassana tradition, the Buddha saw that, even though he had accomplished Brahmajnana or God-Realization, which occurs when the kundalini reaches the seventh chakra, there was still movement in the mind. Only when the movement ceased through his Vipassana practice was he able to achieve liberation.
In my view, when movement stops in the mind, so does the ego return to its seed state. This stage of enlightenment occurs when the heart opens not temporarily as in Brahmanjnana, but permanently as in Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi. As Sri Ramana Maharshi says:
“When the mind drops down in Kevalya Nirvikalpa [Samadhi; i.e., Brahmajnana], it opens but shuts again after it. When Sahaja [Nirvikalpa Samadhi] is attained it opens for good.” (6)
“The Sahaja Nirvikalpa [Samadhi] is permanent and in it lies liberation from rebirths.” (7)
“By repeated practice one can become accustomed to turning inwards and finding the Self. One must always and constantly make an effort, until one has permanently realized. Once the effort ceases, the state becomes natural and the Supreme takes possession of the person with an unbroken current. Until it has become permanently natural and your habitual state, know that you have not realized the Self, only glimpsed it.” (8)
Krishna said, “Those who have renounced ego and desire will reap no fruit at all, either in this world or in the next.” (9) One could translate ego and desire by the words “I want.” And if one does, one arrives at the chief obstacle to liberation that Krishna, the Buddha and most other spiritual teachers point to.
The Buddha called it craving, aversion, and ignorance. The “I” that wants is the ignorance. Aversion can be seen as the same as craving in that it is wanting not to have some condition. Craving, aversion and ignorance therefore boil down again to Krishna’s ego and desire or “I want.” By the law of attraction, so long as we want the things and experiences of the Third Dimension we are attracted to and must remain in the Third Dimension.
This is why Krishna would say, “When a man can still the senses I call him illumined.” (10) Or the Upanishads: “When a man is free from desire, his mind and senses purified, he beholds the glory of the Self and is without sorrow.” (11) And: “The mortal in whose heart desire is dead becomes immortal. The mortal in whose heart the knots of ignorance are untied becomes immortal. These are the highest truths taught in the scriptures.” (12) The knot of ignorance is the “I”; desire is “want.” Again the key difficulty is “I want,” the desiring mind.
Lao Tzu agrees, as do the sages of all religions:
“The secret waits for the insight
Of eyes unclouded by longing;
Those who are bound by desire
See only the outward container. ” (13)
They see only the outward container because they remain in the Third Dimension of physicality, which is why the Company of Light has told us repeatedly that we must let go of our hankering after the things of the Third Dimension if we wish to ascend.
Buddha
Speaking somewhat cryptically, the Buddha said: “The world does not know that we must all come to an end here; but those who know it, their quarrels cease at once.” (14) We must all come to an end here – or more particularly our desires for Third Dimensionality must all come to an end.
If Ascension were not a possibility, then our ego and wanting would have to come to an end while we were incarnated through intensive spiritual discipline if we wanted to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death.
As it happens, Ascension will bring our sense of being a separate “I” and our numerous Third-Dimensional desires to an end without the need for intense practice. In this sense, Ascension lets us off the hook.
We don’t have to meditate alone in a mountainous cave or subject ourselves to strict regimens of renunciation. The rising energies will assist us and take care of the greatest part of these matters for us. And if “I want” comes to an end, what will remain for us to quarrel about?
There is one line of thinking that says that the ego does not stop altogether even after advanced states of enlightenment. Sri Ramakrishna said that “the ego does not vanish altogether” even after vijnana, which I believe is the same as Sahaja Samadhi. (15)
“The man coming down from samadhi perceives that it is Brahman that has become the ego, the universe, and all living beings. This is known as vijnana.” (16)
Sri Ramakrishna had so many memorable metaphors for any spiritual teaching. He compared the ego to a creeper and a goat with its head cut off.
“Why does a vijnani keep an attitude of love towards God? The answer is that ‘I-consciousness’ persists. It disappears in the state of samadhi, no doubt, but it comes back. In the case of ordinary people the ‘I’ never disappears. You may cut down the aswattha tree, but the next day sprouts shoot up.” (17)
“You may discriminate, saying that the ego is nothing at all; but still it comes, nobody knows from where. A goat’s legs jerk for a few moments even after its head has been cut off. Or perhaps you are frightened in a dream; you shake off sleep and are wide awake, but still you feel your heart palpitating. Egotism is exactly like that. You may drive it away, but still it appears from somewhere.” (18)
I cannot decide the debate because I’m not an enlightened man. But certainly the ego is persistent. So it’s probably not a true statement coming from us with our Third-Dimensional consciousnesses to say that we’ve somehow overcome the ego. Chances are we haven’t.
That’s the situation for people up to this magical year. Now, in 2012, with the ending of the 26,000-year cycle, everything changes. The arduousness of the pursuit of enlightenment will come to a close on this planet. Those who choose it and have absorbed enough light to tolerate the Fifth Dimension will rise at the end of the year. I’m not sure if that will result in the total end of the ego, but I’m sure that the ego, if it remains, will once again become the friend of humanity instead of its bane.

Secondary Causes...

In reality, He is the Creator of all effects,
but the People of Skin see nothing but
secondary causes. A kernel that has not left
its shell behind has no escape from doctors
and diseases. When man is born for the
second time, he plants his foot upon the head
of all secondary causes.

Drowning in Light...

You have said that to call upon You would be enough..
I call upon You to feed me Light..
You pour until I drown..
This 'I' that I thought was Me..

Drown this desire of separation..
Drown this desire of fear..
Drown this desire of self..
Drown this illusion..

This Light that is Your essence..
This Light that is Your Breath...
This Light that is Your Being..
This Light that is Us..

This Light that is felt as Love..
This Love that is felt as Us..
Reality strikes us as Light to darkness..
Grasp the Light with all of Your Soul..

The veil...

The wisdom and justice of God are within us, and yet they are far away, hidden
by the veil of the limited self.

Bowl of Saki, May 14, by Hazrat Inayat Khan




Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:

Whenever wars have occurred, whenever there has been bloodshed in the world,
whenever there have been revolutions and upheavals in life, all the various
disasters that have taken place are due to these same causes: on the one side
man's selfishness, and on the other his lack of understanding of the law of
nature and the law of happiness.

Our limited self is like a wall separating us from the Self of God. God is as
far away from us as that wall is thick. The wisdom and justice of God are within
us, and yet they are far away under the covering of the veil of the limited
self. Whoever has arrived at that realization of the nature of God's justice is
able to see all things in a different way from others. His whole outlook on life
becomes different. ...

Man has now become cold, ignorant, and blind to the law that life depends on the
happiness of those with whom we live. The whole of life is one. In all these
different names and manifestations life is one. The true thought is, 'If my wife
is not happy, if my children, my neighbors, my servants are not happy, how can I
ever be happy?' An insult given to someone will one day return. How simple it
is. Yet how difficult for man to understand! It is simple to him who observes
life keenly. It is difficult to him who is absorbed in himself.

Awakening into Awareness...

This "Awakening into Awareness," this view of Reality, is no place at which you can arrive, no accomplishment you can achieve, no goal you can attain. It is your Original Nature, which you simply recognize in a profound and stunning moment of rediscovery and Realization.

It is a subtle shift in perception, a refocusing of attention and perception. It begins with considering the radical possibility that the saints and sages of years gone by might actually be right: that This -- your immediate experience and "ordinary" awareness, exactly as they appear within the present moment -- might actually be "It," i.e., the elusive goal for which you have so long been seeking.


Then, as you begin to consider this possibility, and as you allow the focus of your attention begins to shift, you begin to see and recognize that within the center of your immediate experience, within the deep center of your whirling thoughts, emotions, and sensations, there is a still point -- a Clear Seeing -- a Spacious Space which contains all THIS, a vastness within which all of THIS appears. And, you realize that "you" -- your most fundamental sense of identity and self -- is inextricably linked to this Spacious Awareness which is the background, context and framework for everything you experience.


When you discover (uncover) this Awareness -- this Clear Seeing at your Perceptual Center -- then you begin to realize that you are That. You are now, and have been always. In fact, there is no always -- there is only Now.


And, with this subtle shift in perception, you now realize how limited your previous sense of identity has been. Yes, the body, mind, and emotions exist, and you experience the profound beauty and suffering of Life in and through them, but you -- the essential and fundamental you -- are so much more.


Do not fall into the trap of thinking that you are limited by thought, belief, experience and sensation -- you are, instead, the dynamic spaciousness within which all these phenomena appear. You are the Awareness of these phenomena, not the phenomena themselves. The truth of this can be discovered easily and immediately simply by observing your own experience: the phenomena change, while your Awareness of them does not.


Ultimately, and in the face of these ever changing phenomena, your identity remains in the Center -- seated and grounded in the clear, vast spaciousness of this present moment Awareness, in this Ground of Being.


When you discover this, when you discover the Fullness of this empty space, then you also Recognize the absolute miracle of its innate completeness. And in this completeness, in this Wholeness which is inherent within the Infinite Present, you finally rest and find peace.


Meanwhile, the process of discovery and unfolding continues as the Infinite continues to manifest in and through the finite, Here and Now, within the immediacy of the present moment. It is the movement and flow of this Life energy which animates us, which we experience as the visible and physical world, and through which we read and understand these words.


- Metta Zetty

Do you exist?...

This is a very challenging and often threatening concept for people, strangely
enough, often more so for those in the Christian church. One of the things which
religious people seek is the preservation of their individual identity for all
of eternity.

Sometimes this can lead to more ego, instead of less. First, we must define the
term What is meant by the word "ego?" Ego is: selfishness, I, me, mine; the
individual as apart from and separate from the group; serving the individual's
needs, wants, and desires, at the cost and sacrifice of the needs, wants, and
desires of the group.

Ego is the primal sin. For those of you who have read "In The Garden," this is
hopefully quite clear. Ego is the separating point between us and the world,
between us and our fellow human beings, between us and God.

Often, what happens in the church is an expansion and enhancement of ego. We
believe that, sometimes, God has saved us, whatever that might mean, and that
this means that we, with our individual personality, will exist forever and ever
and ever. We believe that the "I, me, my" will be blessed by God and made
immortal. This is not entirely true. You ultimately do not exist. Now how in the
world do I attempt to gain this from the death and resurrection of Jesus?

The first thing you must understand, is that when Jesus talks about His
disciples, He says that if anyone wants to follow me, he or she must take up his
or her cross and follow me into life everlasting. "Taking up the Cross" has been
misunderstood for centuries and taken, the majority of the time, to be some kind
of affliction, whether it's a pain in the back, or a mother-in-law that we do
not particularly like, or a car that does not run right. These silly examples
are considered to be the cross we must bare. That has absolutely nothing to do
with the reality of the situation. The cross, which we must bare, is the vehicle
upon which our ego will be killed. This, too, is quite clear in "In The Garden."

Jesus had His own will in the Garden of Gethsemane, which was separate from
God's will. But, the crucial point was that He said, "Not my will but thy will
be done."

You can put it in the following phrase, not my way but YHWH. This works. You see
Jesus died to Himself. He laid aside His own personal needs, wants, and desires,
out of love and obedience for the sake of His disciples, for the sake of the
proclamation, for the sake of obeying God's will.

When He did that, He was like the seed which fell into the ground and died. That
is His death. The death that He died was not so much a death of the body,
although that is absolutely a crucial aspect of the revelation, but the death
that He truly died was even more so a death of the self will, a death of ego.

You are called to unite with Jesus. It is not enough to simply believe that He
did this or that, or to sing songs, or even write lengthy pamphlets. No, it is
essential that you become one with Jesus. As the book of Romans makes so clear,
we must be baptized into His death and united with Him in His crucifixion, that
our old sin nature might be done away with, so that we might be resurrected to
walk with Him in the new perfected light.

That is an essential aspect of the Gospel. No one need follow Napoleon
Bonaparte's steps in order to be a disciple of Napoleon. No one has to actually
perform the experiments which Alexander Graham Bell performed in order to learn
from him. But, if we truly wish to learn anything from Jesus,, then merely
studying or thinking or listening or believing is absolutely insufficient.

We must merge with Him entirely. We must become one with Him, so that the life
He lived, we live; so that the campaign against sin and ego which He waged, we
wage; and, that the death He died and the resurrection which He experienced both
become our present experiential reality. This is a merging of self into the
higher order. You and your ego and your own self will must become sublimated to
the point where you are willing to let God live through you, you are willing to
let Jesus live through you.

This is life beyond ego. You must be able to say with Jesus, not my will but thy
will be done. I look at this much like a loudspeaker in a stereo system. The
world's most perfect loudspeaker has never been invented. The absolutely perfect
loudspeaker would reproduce the music absolutely perfectly as it was recorded.
But, speakers will add their own coloration. They will maybe make the highs a
little bit too shrill. Maybe they're too dim. The bass becomes thicker or lacks
bottom end. Spatial separation becomes lost because the two speakers do not work
in phase, and so we cannot visually pinpoint within the stereo field exact
individual instruments.

I could, of course, go on and on. Every speaker adds its own tiny little
personal interpretation of the music. This personal interpretation is undesired.
It is a darkening. It is a pollution. It is a decreasing of the original purity
of the music. Each human being is the same way. The ideal perfect human being,
Christ incarnate, is simply a channel of God's mind, God's presence, God's will.
God is, if you will, the music. We are the speakers. We are here not to add in
our own coloration, not to distort the sound, not to amplify things that God did
not mean to be amplified, but rather to communicate and express exactly what the
music intended. This is life beyond ego.

The ego is a funny thing. Just like the Bible says, "Thinking themselves to be
wise, they became as fools." As we attempt to hold onto our individual ego, we
actually limit ourselves. We think that if we give up, that we will become
nothing, that we have to add in our proverbial two cents' worth in order to be a
real human being.

But, it's only to the extent that stereo does not add in its coloration, that it
becomes truly worthwhile. If we could ever find that perfect stereo that had no
distortion or coloration of any kind, people would worship that sound. The
speakers which add in their own interpretation, so to speak, our worthless. The
more they put in their own interpretation, the less value they are. So, too,
with the ego. The more ego centered we are, the more we seek our own will and
pathway, the less value we have.

If you look at Jesus, there is something remarkable about Him. This man is
worshipped by many, yet He said He was nothing. "Why do you call me good?" "God
alone is good."

"Father, I thank you that you have worked through me." He saw Himself merely as
a conduit of God's healing power, of God's resurrection glory. He claimed no
personal authority, but only that which God had given Him. "The words I speak,"
He said "were given to me by God." And this man, who in His egolessness sought
only to declare the glory of God, winds up being worshipped by millions.

That speaker system, if we ever find it, that perfectly delivers the music will
be worshipped by audiophiles around the world, simply because it does not do its
own thing. It is purely egoless; therefore, it expresses only the music. It is a
perfect conduit for the higher message, for the source, for the music of the
Son, for God.

That is why I say that the ego is a fool, pretending to be wise and haughty and
puffed up, and is truly nothing. Now, life beyond ego, to most people, seems to
be impossible. But, there is a verse in the Bible which I keep coming back to
constantly. Galatians 2 starting in verse 20, where Paul says, "It is no longer
I who live, but Christ who lives in me."

Paul said that he didn't exist. Paul started out as a murderer. He was out to
kill Christians and do whatever he could to block their lives. If a confessed,
repentant murderer can, through his life of faith and devotion to Christ, come
to the point that he recognizes that he does not exist, then so too you can come
to the point where your ego is likewise slain.

I think the Bible is very clear on this because the temptation would be too easy
to say that, well this or that was easy for Jesus, because He was the Son of
God. But, I'm not the Son of God; therefore, I cannot be expected to do these
things.

Ah, but the Bible says this is not the case. Jesus was the son of God, but St.
Paul was just a murderous sinner, who through devotion, concentration, and
faith, came to an awareness of the power and glory of the perfectly egoless
state.

St. Paul's name is emblazoned in every one of the hundreds of millions of Bibles
on this earth, simply because he attempted to bypass his own thinking and
declare simply the truth of God--to be the best mouthpiece that he could. Life
beyond ego is possible.

I wish to give you another indication that you ultimately exist, not in the way
you think you do. The Bible tells us in 1st Corinthians, that eventually we will
know everything about God that He knows about us. That's in 1st Corinthians 12.

But, 1st Corinthians chapter 5 also tells us that nothing and no one can
understand God except the mind of God, the mind of Christ. Just as no one can
understand you and your thoughts except you and your mind, so too, no one can
understand God and His thoughts except for God. And if I could transplant my
brain into you, then you would know everything about me that I knew. That is the
only way that you could gain that information.

In exactly the same way, the Bible says, since in the promised day we are going
to know as much about God as He knows about us, and He knows everything about
us, how is this going to happen? Well, the only thing that can know anything
about God is the mind of God. Therefore, in the glorious day of perfection,
God's mind will understand God perfectly. That is a startling statement, but it
is quite clear from the Biblical record.

We are promised that we will understand everything about God, but we are told
that the only thing that can understand God is God's mind Himself. That's why
St. Paul says we have the mind of Christ. Eventually, that mind of Christ will
grow and blossom inside of us, so that we will be able to say, it is no longer I
who live, but Christ who lives in me, and eventually will blossom to the point
that we see and know, with all of the angels, the height and the depth of God.
We will know everything about God that there is to know. In so doing, the only
mechanism that will be able to do that is the mind of God itself. Where then is
ego? Where do you fit into the picture?

Obviously, this is a very high mystical type of a revelation which the Bible is
giving to us, but the Bible is clear in other places, to say that we live in
God, we move in God, we exist inside of God. Everything comes from Him, moves
through Him, and returns to Him. Therefore, you as a little ego, are a temporary
blip on the screen of infinite Godliness. And, once you, because it is you and
your ego which controls your ego, allow yourself to become open to the grace of
God, once you take up your cross and follow Jesus, once you become united with
Him in His death, then you will be raised with Him to a glorious resurrection.
That resurrection is one of absolute egolessness, wherein you flow in perfect
harmony with the God of the Universe.

This is possible. There is life beyond ego, and it is the glorious fulfillment
of the ages

Ascending toThe Fourth Dimension...

I guess that I must be the one in a million that is spoken about because I have no intention of spending ten thousand years of life in another job fighting evil.. too much drama for ONE that is Light and Love.. this is why Gautama was incarnated.. to free us from these dimensions of experience and Awaken as Light and Love, which is Our natural state, once we surrender the egoic consciousness... this is called the 'short path' versus the 'long path' of dimensions... It is your choice but you should have Knowledge to do so..... namaste, thomas

Despair...

When I despair, I remember that all through
history the ways of truth and love have always
won. There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible, but in
the end they always fall. Think of it - always.

We are Divine Consciousness but the above Knowledge is geared to the

human...... namaste, thomas


Consciousness is Knowledge...

There is one natural capacity which is common to every human being and to every animal being--a capacity which is the very essence of its selfhood. It is consciousness. The most important of all states of consciousness is knowledge.

Bahya ibn Paquda/Pray With The Heart...

"When a man is employed in those duties in which both the heart and limbs are
involved such as prayer and praising God, blessed be He, he should empty himself
of all matter appertaining to this world or the next and he should empty his
heart of every distracting thought.... Know that so far the meaning of prayer is
concerned the words themselves are like the husk while reflection on the words
is like the kernel. The prayer is like the body while reflection on its meaning
is like the spirit, so that if a man merely utters the words of the prayers with
his heart concerned with matters other than prayer, then his prayer is like a
body without a spirit and a husk without a kernel, because while his body is
present when he prays his heart is absent. Of people such as he, the Scripture
says, 'Forasmuch as this people draw nigh, and with their lips do honour Me, but
[they] have removed their heart far from Me.; (Isa., 29:13)."

The Fall of the Archons...

Fall of the Archons

I had some doubts about posting this intel as it may be shocking to some people, but I was nevertheless instructed to do so. Events of the last few days have further convinced me that now is the time to release this. I am not posting this to spread fear, but to inform. If we are aware of the situation, our unified consciousness will be able to transmute and dissolve it. This is a fairly complete picture of the state of affairs between the light and dark forces and of the ultimate victory of the Light.

25,000 years ago, dark forces created quarantine Earth and took humanity hostage. They created a virtual reality control system so nobody could escape. They have trapped Light beings who have a connection with the Source, to fuel this virtual creation.

This virtual reality control system is still in place to an extent and is usually referred to as the Matrix. On the physical plane, the control is maintained through Orion-Babylonian type debt-based financial system slavery and through mass media mind programming. On the etheric, astral and mental planes, the control is maintained with electromagnetic spacetime distortion chambers similar to those used in Philadelphia experiment. Those chambers create an illusion of a closed loop system that appears to be eternal and this is the reason why so few beings have been able to be set free / liberated / enlightened.

The Matrix is run by beings, called Archons (Greek for rulers). They are beings that came from the Andromeda Galaxy and chose to experience darkness. They refused to reconnect with the source. Through millennia, they created Draconian and Reptilian race through genetic engineering to use them as slave warriors to expand their dark empire.

Planet Earth is the last planet of this dark empire to be liberated. There are very few Archons on planet Earth left.

On the etheric and astral planes, they are known as Lords of Karma. They are the ones that to a great extent decide the life path of anybody that incarnates. They choose our parents and to some extent determine our life conditions. This programming system is known as karma. With advance wave-form generating technology on the astral plane they manipulate astral currents of planetary energies and use them for malevolent astrological influences. They maintain the distorted spacetime structure with implants that have created spacetime black hole anomaly, thus confusing human mind and emotions. Implants are programmable crystals that were put into mental, astral and etheric bodies of every single human being on Earth with strong electronic devices.

On the etheric and lower astral planes, their Draconian administrators maintain the artificial intelligence technology that keeps the Matrix in place. It has an alert system so if an awakened being creates a hole in this Matrix with his Light, Draconians send a Reptilian slave warrior to exert pressure on the psychological weak spots of that awakened being to lower his vibration and thus close that hole. Also, those Reptilian slave warriors constantly exert pressure upon the mind and emotions of incarnated human beings on Earth in order to prevent their spiritual growth and to suppress their fight for freedom. If that is not enough, they also send amoeba-like elemental beings that put additional pressure. All those negative beings usually hide in folds of distorted spacetime structure on astral and etheric planes:


Their power is in fear and hidden agendas. They lose all power in the face of light, truth and courage. If we are aware of all this without fear, the light of our consciousness will straighten those folds in spacetime structure and all those negative beings will be removed from astral and etheric planes of planet Earth:


On the physical plane the Archons are incarnated within Jesuit organization and they spiritually control their administrators (Draconian Illuminati that run the financial system), their warriors (Reptilian mercenaries that protect the Illuminati) and their slaves (humanity that works for them in their 9-5 jobs). Through Jesuit societies and 33rd degree Freemasons they hold the Illuminati structure together. This structure is now finally falling apart.


Invasions of the Archons

There were three main invasions of the Archons and their subjugated races such as Draconians and Reptilians from outer space in known human history. All of them happened both on physical and spiritual planes.

The first one is Kurgan invasion that happened around 3600 BCE. Dark beings entered through Caucasus dimensional portal.

Their purpose was to destroy peaceful Goddess worshipping neolithic cultures that thrived in neolithic Europe. They wanted to destroy veneration of the Goddess since feminine energy is our direct connection to the Source:


The second one is Khazar invasion that happened around 393 CE. Dark being used the same Caucasus dimensional portal:


The purpose of this invasion was to destroy mystery schools, Christian gnostic groups and nature worshipping paganism and replace those with Christian cult mind programming. This programming was enhanced with creation of virtual reality hells on the lower astral plane, which were then used by the Church to strengthen its position.

The third one is Congo invasion that happened in 1996. Dark beings entered through war-torn Congo, Rwanda and Uganda. Main focus of this invasion was on the etheric and lower astral plane. The purpose of this invasion was to destroy new age and ascension movements and to reinforce the Matrix that was already beginning to disintegrate in 1995 as a result of mass awakening on Earth. Most beings are not aware of this invasion as their memories about the Light that was present on Earth before 1996 were erased with intense implanting sessions between 1996 ad 1999.


Victory of the Light

After the 11:11:11 portal activation in November last year, the Matrix is finally falling apart. Immediately after that, events were set into motion (Keenan lawsuit) that will finally result in our ultimate liberation. This time there can be no invasion of Archons from outer space, since planet Earth is the last one to be liberated.

The decisive battle is expected to happen around the Venus transit portal on June 5th. We are already within the timeframe of that decisive turning point. Although the victory of Light is ensured and all negative timelines have been erased, we need to be extremely vigilant.

Archons on the astral plane will continue to exert pressure on the psychological weak spots of the key players of the positive forces on Earth to create divisions and conflicts between them. This serves their purpose to diffuse our focus into petty quarrels and away from our focused intent of taking down the Cabal. We need to release those conflicts and refocus immediately. Liberation consciousness stream is strong enough to override Archon influence, but they are still powerful enough to create unnecessary delays. Mass arrests of the Cabal are not physical operation only, they need spiritual support so that when they happen, human masses will not panic.

At a certain point, energies of the Galactic Central Sun will burn through all obstacles of the Matrix on the astral and etheric planes and all negative entities will be removed. They will be replaced with angels and spiritual guides as one prophecy beautifully states:

The Net Must Come Down, It Ends, Light Enters

The final step is simply taking down the net. This has to be done and events will then quickly follow.
The One will put forth all that energy to destroy the net itself and events will kick in almost immediately.
The programs will have no place to hide, no portals, no equipment, nothing. They will be led off and the weather pattern of luminosity will begin.

Forgiveness...

For-give-ness.... to be in the state of giving instead of grasping..

Giving is an action of unselfishness called Love..

Grasping is the action of ego.. the action of Duality..

This is why Forgiveness is necessary for Union with Divine Consciousness..

This is why Unconditional Love is the essence of Divinity..

This is why 'Pure Intelligence' gave Love to Creative Manifestation..
This is why Healing works..

Let us all forgive all the evil (ego) that affects the illusions..

the evil within the illusion already suffers more than our revenge could
extract..

This is why Divinity has stated that "Revenge is Mine, says the Lord"..

This statement from Divinity is to remove you from the Karma of
non-forgiveness...

Mind Mastery...

Those who have given deep thoughts to the world are those who have controlled
the activity of their minds.

Bowl of Saki, May 5, by Hazrat Inayat Khan




Commentary by Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan:

He is thoughtful whose mind is directed by his will, whose mind fulfills his
intentions, whose mind is under the control of his intention. ... Only those who
have controlled the activity of their minds have given deep thoughts to the
world. Those whose minds are working mechanically like a machine, or just
reflecting the activity of those around them, may appear to be living beings,
but the mystic would say differently; for it is not till a person has gained
mastery over his mind, till he is above this activity, that he is a ruling
power, a true person.

When we think about it, we find that all the things that are accomplished in
this world are accomplished by the power of mind. ... Whatever man creates in
science, in art, in phenomena or wonder making, in poetry, in music, in
pictures, in everything that he brings into being, is all achieved by the power
of mind. ... If he does not control his mind, he is not a master but a slave. It
lies with his own mind whether he shall be master, or whether he shall be slave.
He is slave when he neglects to be master; he is master if he cares to be
master.

Mastery lies not merely in stilling the mind, but in directing it towards
whatever point we desire, in allowing it to be active as far as we wish, in
using it to fulfill our purpose, in causing it to be still when we want to still
it. He who has come to this has created his heaven within himself; he has no
need to wait for a heaven in the hereafter, for he has produced it within his
own mind now.

People pursue spirituality with their brain: that is where they are mistaken.
Spirituality is attained through the heart. What do I mean by the heart? Is it
the nervous center in the midst of the breast, the small piece of flesh that
doctors call the heart? No, the definition of the heart is that it is the depth
of the mind, the mind being the surface of the heart. That in us which feels is
the heart, that which thinks is the mind. It is the same thing which thinks and
feels, but the direction is different: feeling comes from the depth, thought
from the surface. When thought is not linked with feeling it is just like a
plant rising up from the earth, the root of which has not gone deep. A thought
without feeling is a powerless thought; it is just like a plant without a deep
root. A tree the root of which has gone deep into the earth is stronger, more
reliable, and so the thought deeply rooted in the heart has greater power.



Allan Watts...

D. T. Suzuki: The Supreme Spiritual Ideal

"I remember D. T. Suzuki's address to the final meeting of the 1936 World
Congress of Faiths at the old Queen's Hall in London. The theme was "The Supreme
Spiritual Ideal," and after several speakers had delivered themselves of volumes
of hot air, Suzuki's turn came to take the platform. "When I was first asked,"
he said, "to talk about the Supreme Spiritual Ideal, I did not exactly know what
to answer.
Firstly, I am just a simple-minded countryman from a far away corner of the
world suddenly thrust into the midst of this hustling city of London, and I am
bewildered and my mind refuses to work in the same way that it does when I am in
my own land.

Secondly, how can a humble person like myself talk about such a grand thing as
the Supreme Spiritual Ideal?...
Really I do not know what Spiritual is, what Ideal is, and what Supreme
Spiritual Ideal is."

Whereupon he devoted the rest of his speech to a description of his house and
garden in Japan, contrasting it with the life of a great city. This from the
translator of the Lankavatara Sutra! And the audience gave him a standing
ovation."

Perceptions...

For a moment I saw a beautiful moving river.
Then a vast water with no means of crossing it.

For a moment, I saw a bush full of opening buds.
Then no roses, no thorns, nothing.

For a moment I saw a busy cooking fire.
Then no hearth, no smoke, no flame.

I saw the great mother of kings, Kunti.
Then, the next moment, sitting here, is
the helpless old aunt of the potter's wife.

John Wheeler...


That awareness or non-duality is your true nature. From this viewpoint, perception is really just another name for your own existence. Even in the midst of perceptions, you never move away from oneness. The same applies to the arising of thoughts, feelings, sensations and any other experiences.

-- John Wheeler in Shining in Plain View, pg 27





An individual will never become a perfect, enlightened entity who has no problems, no demands, no activities. That is a pipe dream, just another passing dream before the unchanging gaze of awareness. Seeing your identity with awareness results in a natural abandoning of the concept of being a separate, individual entity. It is not about perfecting that concept!

-- John Wheeler in Shining in Plain View, pg 81

Will and Ego...

As it is written;  "Not my will but Your Will be Done"... this 'Will' that is spoken of is your belief that you are an ego, separate from God.. This 'will or ego' is the wall preventing You from Freedom..
 This is the secret of the surrender of our will..
 This is the secret of the surrender of the 'ego'..

 This is the secret of God Realization..
 This is the secret of Reality..
 This is Unconditional Love and Light..
 This is 'You' without 'you'..

Saul: Peace, Harmony and Abundance Are About to Occur ...

As Channeled by John Smallman
http://wp.me/pwoMa-lm


It does seem to some of you that you have been waiting an interminable amount of
time for your awakening, and this is mainly because time seems to pass so slowly
when you live in enthusiastic expectation of an event that you know will bring
you all amazing happiness, the like of which has never before been experienced
on Earth. And your expectations are absolutely valid.


There will be no disappointments because what God delivers is always way beyond
expectations! And He will deliver.


You have been promised a New World in which peace, happiness, harmony and
abundance are eternally present for all, and this is what is about to occur – no
ifs, ands, or buts!



And when it happens your hearts will be filled, infinitely, with joy. A joy so
intense that it is utterly beyond your ability to imagine; it has to be
experienced, as it most certainly will.That is the Good News. And while it may
not be new news, because you have always known that its time is coming, it is
eternal, timeless, and permanent. What you are waiting for is almost upon you,
and signs of the great changes that will herald this grand moment are appearing
all over the world.


Only those who wish to be unaware are unable to sense the air of excitement and
anticipation that has enveloped you all. And free will allows them to cling to
that unawareness.


Needless to say, many of the unaware are beginning to wonder whether it makes
any sense for them to continue clinging to this state of stubborn inflexibility
which sees only continuing and insurmountable problems all over the world due to
people's inability to cooperate for the benefit of all. They have an inner sense
that there has to be a better way.


They know, because all on Earth know – even though that knowledge may presently
be buried under monumental amounts of debris – that life is intended to be an
eternal experience of infinite joy.


Nevertheless, because of the unhappy conditions that the illusion provides, and
the suffering and pain it offers constantly to all who choose to focus their
energies on those aspects of it, they find it very difficult to respond
positively to the hope that has started to seep into their consciousness. They
look at history, their own or the world's, and are very disheartened for it
seems that it just endlessly repeats itself.


Because of the work that the Light-holders are doing – changing their attitudes
by releasing all that is unloving, and embracing compassion, acceptance, and
forgiveness towards all – the divine energy field enveloping the planet is
intensifying and infiltrating the individual energy fields of everyone on Earth
at this time, and awaking within them the hope and the faith that has lain there
for so long hidden and unacknowledged.


The loving spiritual assistance that is pouring down on Earth at this point in
your evolution is constantly increasing to ensure that all receive their divine
wake-up call. Not to awaken is a conscious decision not to hear, not to listen,
and not to be aware, that has to be taken by anyone who remains unaware of
humanity's unfolding spiritual evolution.


Nevertheless, the divine energy field will not cease in its attempts to persuade
them that they are dearly loved and that their awakening will bring them untold
joy. It is inevitable that eventually, when their suffering becomes unbearable
and they choose to surrender their will to God's, they will accept this divine
offer, which is always available and will never be withdrawn, and then they will
be lovingly drawn into God's divine embrace.


If any of your loved ones seem to be unwilling, or are determinedly refusing, to
allow themselves to open to the joyful energies flowing across the planet, just
silently and quietly send them love and acceptance, and know that when they are
ready – and their readiness is inevitable, eventually – they too will awaken. No
one will be forsaken, so do not worry yourselves about them.


Divine destiny has a most wonderful outcome planned for every single one of you
without exception. Eternal ecstasy and infinite joy for all are divinely
assured.


With so very much, love, Saul.

Yeshua speaks...

You will find yourselves steeped in the wonder of who you truly are

Humanity is on course to awaken as divinely intended. So open your hearts to receive the Love that is constantly on offer to help you move out of your state of deep sleep. You want to; you know that life is much more real, alive, and exuberantly vibrant than what you are presently experiencing, and yet there is a sense of anxiety or even dread – that to move forward towards that state is to face judgment and possibly condemnation for behaviors in which you have at times engaged. But those behaviors never occurred, and they could not.
Your present state is illusory! Many wise and holy ones are repeatedly advising you of this fact, and still you doubt and cling to beliefs that would attempt to convince you that you are sinners and misfits who are unworthy of God’s unconditional Love. You are always loved because you are the children of God, created by Him as perfect beings to live in eternal joy. That is His Will.
To imagine that any state other than everlasting harmonious oneness with Him could be your destiny, let alone be possible, makes no sense at all. You are all of infinite worth, priceless jewels in the heavenly firmament, and without even one of you present that state would be incomplete. And nothing that is of God, Who is All That Is, could ever be incomplete.
Your destiny is to awaken, and so you shall. Release your fears, your doubts, and your anxieties that suggest you are unworthy because they only confuse and disturb you. For divine confirmation go within – into your heart, into the center of your being – and ask yourselves if you are worthy of God’s Love, and you will be answered with a resounding “Yes!” No other answer is possible because when you ask that question, it is God Who answers you!
This message is to reaffirm for you that you are eternally one with God, your Creator and loving Father, Who has nothing but indiscriminate, unconditional Love to offer to each and every part of His creation. No one is or could ever be excluded from that divine and totally inclusive state. Whatever your fears may be, they are utterly unwarranted. Let them go, for they do not serve you, and allow yourselves to feel the Love that surrounds you constantly.
When you awaken, all those insecurities, doubts, and feelings of being in any way unworthy, which you have embraced with unbelievable enthusiasm over eons spent in the illusion, will be gone, and you will find yourselves infused and steeped in the wonder of who you truly are: divine beings of infinite value, ensconced in a state of permanent ecstasy with one another and with God. You will have no memories of conflict, betrayal, or suffering to cloud the brilliance of your awakened state. Surrounded by all who love you, and whom you love, there will be nothing to disturb the divine harmony that is your heavenly destiny.
Your loving brother, Jesus.

Unborn...

There is, Oh Monks, a not-born, a not-become, a not-made, a
not-compounded. Monks, if that unborn, not-become, not-made,
not-compounded were not, there would be no escape from this here that is born, become, made and compounded.
-- Buddha
"In the pursuit of Knowledge, every day something is added. In the practice of the Way, every day something is dropped. Less and less do you need to force things, until finally you arrive at non-action. When nothing is done, nothing is left undone." --Lao-tzu

He is back...

He is back
the One who was never absent,
the water that never left the stream,
the essence of the musk
of which we are the scent.
Can the essence and the scent
be separate?

Universal Responsibility...

Adopting an attitude of universal responsibility is essentially a personal
matter. The real test of compassion is not what we say in abstract discussions
but how we conduct ourselves in daily life.
