"To understand what is, you have to be undisturbed, undistracted, you have to give your mind and heart to it."

"O dear one, love your own inner Self, Keep both mind and intellect pure. The Lord is an ocean of compassion. Never forget him, not even for a moment. When your mind becomes fickle and wanders reabsorb it in the Self. See beyond atoms and molecules forget the notion of individual particles. Then you will see only God. Pursue THAT; make it your goal."
-- Swami Muktananda REFLECTIONS OF THE SELF
Subject: Alarm Clocks.....

The Awakening Alarm-Clock has been going off for some time now. Yet our conditioned notions urge us to reach over and hit the *snooze button*, and so we do. But Waking-Up is all about Openly and Honestly Observing our every thought and every action, which is too Painful for most to bear. So we turn away and keep our attention fixed on the self-made conditioned image that we have created with the help of the Grand Trickster (the conditioned mind).

Subject: BE Your Self.....
From: "E.J." <ejLight@Light-Mission.org> Date: Mon, 10 Aug 2009 22:10:10 -0700
"Your so-called religions don't trust nature. They trust in holy scriptures; they trust in dead words spoken thousands of years before by people we do not know. Whether they knew anything, or they were just creating fictions...unless you know, you can never be certain. But they are molding you according to patterns created in the past. This process of molding people into Christians, Hindus, Mohammedans, Buddhists, goes against the very basic human right; it does not allow you to be your natural self. And unless you are yourself, you cannot be happy."
-- Sri Rajneesh (later known as Osho)

Subject: Know ThySelf.....

"The self is to be understood in our everyday speech, in the way we think and feel, in the way we look at another. If we can be aware of every thought, of every feeling, from moment to moment, then we shall see that in relationship the ways of the self are understood. Then only is there a possibility of that tranquility of mind in which alone the ultimate reality can come into being."
Subject: I Wonder.....
From: "E.J." <ejLight@Light-Mission.org> Date: Thu, 13 Aug 2009 22:32:58 -0700
Rarely is what people say what they have Truly Realized as Truth or Reality, but rather offerings of what they *believe*. They may even get others to buy into their *beliefs* in lieu of their own, but the change is not beneficial because *beliefs* are still Harbored. It is the *beliefs* in lieu of Direct Experience that Veil our Awakening. We fool ourselves in many ways, such as *thinking* that we are accomplishing something in our conditioned thinking and behavior. *Thinking* that we are learning or growing or realizing something. But alas, Sleeping, we only seemingly realize that which we project into/onto our experiences.
Just wondering out loud, ej

Subject: We're In This Together.....

"The Light will come around again as it always does... let us hold our hands together even though we are not in the same physical space or even in the same time. We know that time itself is an illusion. We will remember, during the dark time of the year, that although everybody is separate, nobody is detached. As Rachel Faro sings, 'We are all in this together, an ancient family.'"
-- Elizabeth said that in "Seeds of Wisdom"
Subject: Believe It or Not.....
From: "E.J." <ejLight@Light-Mission.org> Date: Wed, 19 Aug 2009 19:54:50 -0700
Are you an *Atheist* or a *Theist* or an *Agnostic*? Is there a difference? *Believing* there is a God or *believing* there is no God or *believing* there is a combination of both, is really of the same *belief system*. Awakening is not a matter of *what* you believe, but rather *that* you believe. The problem is in *belief*, and not in whether one believes one thing or another. As long as there is *belief*, there is no Awakening. So the fallacy is not in one's particular belief in God, but rather that there is belief at all. It is neither this, nor that -- it simply IS. Sleeping, we believe that there is some so called Higher Power or that there is not. Awakening, we Directly Experience the Realization of ourselves -- which IS a far more Higher Power than our conditioned ways of thinking and behavior. It has been said that Self-Realization IS God-Realization.

"Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to."

Ah, discipline... that is a tricky one. And difficult because we are not used to discipline. We are used to going with the flow of our feelings and conditionings. But basically it is just a matter of just doing it. We have to get ourselves focused on it to the point that it is the only thing in our mind and our behavior. Nothing else matters because it is the single most important thing in your life, discipline. Just as the single most important thing in our life should be Waking-Up. In life we get Pointers, Clues, Instructions. They should he considered and meditated on, and then act upon them. THAT is discipline... Receiving instructions and following them... to the letter... without hesitation. Our resistance causes us to falter. We do not want to resist because we want discipline, but we are conditioned to resist... so we do.
It takes time. Short bursts but then wandering off the discipline. But get right back to it. Never give up regardless of how many times you fall... get right back up and ask for more. Persistence will make you Persevere. Persistence is a major Key to discipline. If you never accept defeat you will overcome the discipline problem. Never accept defeat. Others have done it so you can too. It is simply wearing down the resistance. Do not let it wear you down. It takes the best of us years to master discipline, to master ourselves. Conditionings are not easy to overcome. You have to convince yourself that it is worth it. That it is worth whatever it takes and however long it takes. It has to be the most important thing in your life. You have to give your whole self to it, 99% is not good enough. All of you. And never give in to the desire of entropy (to remain undisciplined). It takes being 100% committed, 100% dedicated. You have to give up your self to BE your Self.

"When someone is seeking it happens quite easily that he only sees the thing that he is seeking; that he is unable to find anything, unable to absorb anything, because he is only thinking of the thing he is seeking, because he has a goal, because he is obsessed with his goal. Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal."
