Samples of *Private Teachings*
Greetings Ye Seekers of Truth and Understanding,
These "Private Postings" are supplemental to all of the other Light Mission endeavors to distribute information to Help in the Unfolding of Inner Awareness -- The Awakening. I hope that you find them helpful and interesting. Dwell on them WithIN and See what Realizations Unfold.
A most preliminary and most needed Realization Dear Friend, that there is much Work to be done IN ourself and Open to any Real Help offered. There are many would-be well meaning so called helpers in such Work, but alas they would merely have you replace one belief system with another, accomplishing nothing yet *thinking* progress has been made. Only via Pointers, self-inquiry, self-questioning, self-observation, and letting go of the Causes of our Suffering can we See the defilements that stand in the way of our Awakening. For no one Saves us but ourself, we ourself must Walk the Way.
My I offer also, when we get the finger too close to our eye the finger blocks our Vision of where the finger may Point. So do not be beguiled by the finger but rather focus Attention on where the finger Points. It is not the finger that Saves you, but rather the Realization of where the finger Points, the "aha". Indeed, another preliminary and needed step is to let go of those dearly held conditioned preconceived ideas and images and meanings that also block our Vision, block our very Awakening.
There are many routes to the Path, but the route is not the Path. For ON the Path all routes must blend so there is but One Path, the Path of Awakening. It is not a well traveled Path so there are many ruts and stones along the Way for us to stumble on and sometimes fall. The Journey is not a Planned luxury cruise, but rather an uncharted ever anew Direct Experience from Moment to Moment. A Wondrous Journey indeed, but the Price is our dearly beloved conditioned notions and beliefs. A Price that few are willing to Pay. And we can not use our Visa Credit Card, deferred payment, for Awakening is COD -- Payment is due right NOW.
Humanity bares a heavy burden, though they are unaware of it. Their folly is but wasting the very Life Energy they ARE. It is more than merely a waist of an incarnation, but rather the waist of the opportunity to Wake-Up. For though thousands of years ago a lost incarnation was not the end of the world, today it may be because of, as you said, we are getting ever more into Kali Yuga Cycle (the Darkest of the Dark Age Cycles). For you see, thousands of years ago our ever Awakening Potential was still quite limited and so we incarnated rapidly into the next incarnation. But as the Potential Unfolds and our lack of attachment to this physical realm decreases naturally due to the Unfolding Potential, we re-incarnate much slower. That is, thousands of years ago we stayed in the Bardo of Death a short time before re-entering the physical realm. Whereas now a days we stay in the Bardo of Death far longer before re-entering this realm. Which means that when we re-enter this realm again we could be dead center in the Dark Age -- then we will be able to do very little about our Awakening. By then those Awakening will be *under ground* and not readily found. The Potential Unfolds whether we start Awakening or not, that is why people have this Inner Urge to start Awakening. Problem is that they cling to their seeming tried and true methods which are but conditioned notions. In this way Potential is stifled, so we are just miserable and know not why.
He is reaching out for help, but does not take the Hand extended to him. It reminds me of the Michele Angelo painting on the Cathedral ceiling where man lazily reaches out to God and God strenuously returns the extended Hand of Help -- which man never takes. He wants Help but refuses it when offered. He does not want the Suffering but refuses to give up the Causes of his Suffering. A theme the Wise Sages have been trying to get us to Understand since time immemerable.
Mark this offering well. It is a Teaching for those of Inner Strength of Awakening who have the Eyes to See and the Ears to Hear. Those who ARE Awakening in Helping others to start. BE Well Dear One, and also BE MIndful.
More "God talk". As I said earlier, we are always talking about God though we may not use the word "God". For when we finally Dwell IN our Pure True Nature we are able to "know thyself" thus know God, so using the word seems to be a redundancy. Labels, names, words become mere stumbling blocks to Direct Realization so we merely *express* God without even uttering the word.
I bid you give many thanks for being such the great Teacher, for through his offerings you were able to Learn and Understand and Realize much about yourself. It is mostly sad that relationships do not work out, but in them, especially the ones that do not work out, there is the Gem of Self-Actualization IF we are Open and Honest to Recognize it. When we dwell in self pity or anger or loss of some sort we lose the opportunity to Truly Observe ourself. And it is in self Observation that we can see that which defiles our Pure True Nature and hopefully do something about letting those defilements go. Welcome back from Lalla land, no pun intended.
Ah indeed, there are many games people play and masks people wear in any relationship, intimate or just passing or professional or personal. Which is a major reason why it is difficult for people, in the long run, to get along with each other. Yet when we are Open and Honest with ourselves it is far easier to be Open and Honest with others, as deceit starts with deceiving ourself and manifests in all that we think and do.
Is not knowledge of the mind ? Is the mind Truth ? Are thoughts of the mind Truth ? Truth can be Realized, Recognized, Directly Experienced, and Dwelled IN, but that which is known is not Truth for Truth does not reside in the mind. Only IN the Silence of mind can we Hear, only IN the Void of mind can we See, only IN Awakening from mind can we BE.
There is no one to blame for our defilements of Inner Deafness and Inner Dumbness, but we are to blame if we do nothing about these maladies. It is easy enough to see our shortcomings, but if we do nothing to rectify them what good is it to see them ?
We live *with* our personal truth, but we Live Truth.
Ah, the *curiosity seeker*. No, I would say that you are being to hard on yourself. You have gone beyond a mere curiosity seeker Wonderful Friend. But indeed, we do so cling to our defiling conditionings to the very end even realizing that they are defiling. We have this false notion that we have to belong, that we have to be a part of that which others are a part of. Why ? If we hold on tight enough will we be able to take it with us when we leave ? Use it and enjoy it at the Moment, but all physical manifestation including our thoughts and conditionings are as imperminent as the Moment. We carry around this baggage, which will not serve us even as we carry it around. It is heavy and cumbersome, and sometimes too overwhelming to carry.
There is little use in asking questions until we are ready to understand the answer. And when we are ready to understand the answer we have no questions because we Realize that we already have the answer. That is, we understand the answer before we ask the question. We do not have to *ask*, we simply have to BE. IN the Silence we Hear. IN the Void we See. IN Awakening we ARE. No questions, no answers, simply What-IS. So the answer is actually the question, as the question is actually the answer. BEing, we ARE *Rays of Light*.

Greetings Ye Seekers of Truth and Understanding,

Ah....... Desire ! Siddhartha said that Desire was the root Cause of our Suffering. There are naturally many other Causes as well, but Desire is at the very root of our problems. And indeed, we can call it by any other name but anything we name it boils down to Desire. I would say that he had stumbled across a Truth.
Do not think of Desire as though it were an entity in itself, that it has a life of it's own, as though Desire comes knocking at our door and we let it in. Then after we let Desire in, it sort of takes over and starts controlling and manipulating us. But, WE generate Desire. WE give birth to Desire -- it is our Child. And as all of our begotten conditioned notions (children), we tend to it. And are therefore controlled and manipulated by it. A demise or our own device -- WE created the monster and the monster consumes us. Instead of the parent consuming the offspring as we at time find in nature, our offspring consumes us. WE created this monster so WE have to either submit to it or destroy it. A case of mistaken identity here, I would say.
WE forged the Chain and WE assembled the Lock and WE placed the Chain about ourselves and closed the Lock. So WE have to disassemble the Lock and melt the Chain. As stated above, WE created this monster so WE have to either submit to it (Sleep) or destroy it (Wake-Up). It is in letting go of our conditioned notions. It is in Realizing that nothing in this manifested impermanent realm is worth clinging to. For it is temporary -- instant gratification, and nothing more. So there is nothing worth Desiring.
Desires are not "there", WE generate them so WE have to stop generating them. It is as simple as that -- if we do not generate them we will not have to deal with them.
The Great Path has no Gates, thousands of roads enter it. When one passes through this Gateless Gate he Walks freely between Heaven and Earth.
