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.

Problem ?

Sounds like suicide to me. Sounds like a person studying a tall building (making sure that it was very tall), studying the ground around the building (making sure that it was solid and firm), studying the access to the top of this building, planning a time to go to the top of this building, jumping off the building, then complain on the way down that he is going to die when he hits the ground. You know there is a problem, you accept the problem as a problem, then wonder why there is a problem. That is a problem. A problem generated by the Grand Trickster the conditioned mind. And as long as the Grand Trickster is welcomed with open arms, there will always be the problem. Kick the Grand Trickster out, and perhaps you will be hard pressed to find that problem. Is it coincidence that the Grand Trickster is always near when such problems arise ?

Knowing others is Intelligence, Knowing yourself is True Wisdom, Mastering others is Strength, Mastering yourself is True Power. If you want to see the Rainbow, you have to put up with the Rain. To Dwell IN Silence, we Hear. To Dwell IN the Void, we See. To Dwell IN Awakening, we ARE. Believe nothing, my Friend, for Reality and Truth is only IN Direct Experience of What-IS in the very instant present Moment. It will be found nowhere else. We must be IN the world and Experience What-IS in it to it's fullest. But I contend, as many have, that the Suffering of the world is Caused by our being OF the world.

Is John Donne not talking of the Transmutation of our conditioned basic metal dualistic perception into the Gold of Awakening ? Is he not saying to put aside our conditioned attachments OF the world in order to expand our Awakening ? That All IS One IN Awakening ? Donne was one of the proponents of Alchemical Self-Realization, so would he not be saying not to mourn being a stranger in a strange land ?

*Closed-circuit* thinking is the most hideous of the conditioned habits that humanity has to break and discard. No one Saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may -- others can point to the Path, but we ourselves must Walk the Way. The only way that our efforts and Awakening will Help others is IF they are Open to the Help we offer, otherwise they will remain deluded. We can lead a horse to water but we can not make it drink. Awakening is a Solitary Journey, and though we Realize Oneness of All, that Realization does not automatically *draw* others forward to Realize it as well but rather *pointers* or indicators for others. The reason that so few of humanity is Awakening is that they *think* that their Salvation rests on the Awakening of another. We keep *Knocking* but only a few Open the Door, for they do not Dwell IN Silence so they can not Hear, they do not Dwell IN the Void so they can not See, they do not Dwell IN Awakening so they can not BE. And until they *take the hint*, Open to the pointers, and Walk the Path themselves they will remain Sleeping and only Dream that they are Awake.

Is it not amazing, what Beautiful Wonders we miss while Sleeping ? These are the Sounds of Life, the Sounds of Sensitive Attention, the Sounds of Awakening to What-IS. As Sir Blake so aptly pointed out, we can "See the Universe in a grain of sand" or Hear the Wonders of Awakening IN Silence, in a blade of grass, in the song of a whippoorwill, in an ocean breeze, in the sun light breaking through a window, in the grace of a falling leaf, IN the Silence. To Sleep through such Experiences is a shame, for most do.

Though it is not a simple matter to discard life-long conditioned thinking, or "addictions", as we do we start to Realize that all our lives we have let Life pass us by. We start to Realize that what we have done is accept (or should I say *tolerate*) an *existence* that we have been duped into *thinking* was life. And we wonder *how could I miss this since it is right here in front of me, and IS me*. Yet alas, is it of matter from whence we came, when where we ARE is here right NOW ? And is it not NOW where we must continue to BE ?

Predetermination and Free-Will or Choice is far more complex a situation than a few words could reveal. However, would not predetermination require a *plan* or structure that has it's roots in the past ? And is our Actions IN Reality not confined to the Present Moment ? Is consideration of a past IN the Moment ? I offer that what is *determined* is the Energy of Awakening that Draws particular situations together such that we may, based on our particular State of Awakening, take Actions IN the Present Moment that Balance and Further our Awakening. Many refer to this as Karma.

As we Unfold IN our Awakening, our so called *choices* lessen to the point of no choices at all. As we begin to Awaken we catch a glimpse of our True Nature or our True Self, and we find it so Wonderful and so Divine that we are Drawn by our own determination to Awaken that we Realize that there is no other direction but Within to establish Permanent Oneness OF Self. Blinded as it were, Blinded to the toxic conditioned thinking that kept this Realization of Self from us, and so we Realize that the Passion to discard those conditioned Veils must consume our physical life and our whole BEing. We are left with but one avenue to Travel, so there could not be much of a choice. Though while still Sleeping, the Great Trickster the mind contrives all sorts of choices for us so that we can feel in control of our travels. But the Sleeping do not Realize the Passion that Drives Awakening, only IN Awakening do we.

We *observe* our toxic conditioned thinking and behavior, then we *Work* on discarding it. That is it. We can not *Work* on Awakening, for it would be a conflict of terms -- we *Work* on getting rid of the Causes of our Suffering and as a *result* we further Awaken. The removal of one allows the other. Many *Work* on Awakening, but they miss the point -- what is Sought, will always elude us. We will not Find what we Look for. Awakening is the result of the Lifting of the Veils of toxic conditioned thinking and Observing What-IS. We would Naturally Awaken if it were not for the toxic conditioned thinking and behavior. The first step is recognizing that we are Sleeping -- and the next step is doing something about it.

We can not hold on to even the Moment, for we must Experience the Moment at the Moment Moment to Moment, or we drift back out of the present Moment by holding on to the Moment just past. Experience the Moment AS IT IS and go on to the next Moment AS IT IS. Is any Koan to be solved ? Or is a Koan to be Experienced so as to Awaken to the Meaning of the content of the Koan ? Are we to solve the Riddle of Life, or Experience it so as to Awaken IN it ? Or more accurately, Awaken as a result OF if ?

Why can you not BE who your ARE and still share your life with someone else ? Would you trade your Divine Inheritance (the Awakening of True Inner Self) for companionship ? I would say that dissatisfaction with yourself is not the question but rather perhaps a dissatisfaction with your particular situation. One can only Evaluate and Observe oneself and one's situation -- there will be the clue to your *yearning*.

It has been said, that "Until the fear of remaining exceeds the fear of changing, you won't change". People are afraid their whole life will change if they begin to live the life they really want. They are afraid they will lose what they "have" even though it is not what they want. They are also afraid that they will fail at becoming what they want to become. Some are even afraid they will not like the person they find after they become this "true-to-self" person -- or that those who are close to them will not like that person. The reason you do not change is simple. You feel "safe" just the way you are. You are not very happy, but you are "content", you are comfortable. Yet, deep down, you know there is MUCH MORE to life than what you are living.

How do you overcome your fear and start living life YOUR way ? There are two things that one must do -- TAKE ACTION ! Taking action overcomes fear and replaces it with exhilaration (happiness) and increased self-esteem. The other is HONESTY. Being totally honest and truthful, regardless of how afraid you are of being that way, does set you free ! If one is totally HONEST, then there is absolutely nothing to fear, there is nothing that is not known, and fear is always related to unknowns !

There is no seedling to have an identity to change. That identified is the identification, not that which posses the identification. Siddhartha made this distinction some years a go with the ox cart metaphor if you are familiar with it.

Siddhartha used an ox cart to help illustrate the impermanence of objects, dependent arising, and the nature of identity. He pointed out an ox cart to his companions and asked them to identify it. Presently, each said it was an ox cart. Siddhartha then asked, while pointing toward the wheel of the cart, is this an ox cart ? Each answered no. Siddhartha continued in this method, pointing toward each component of the cart, axle, canopy, canopy pole, yoke, etc., and asking if it was an ox cart, until his companions had established that each component was indeed not an ox cart.

Siddhartha then said: "if, as you have shown me, nothing here is an ox cart, where is the ox cart ?"

Each "thing" is not at all a "thing", but instead is the dependent manifestation of all that constitutes it. As certainly as there is no ox cart, likewise, there are no components, for each component is also not a "thing" but is a dependent manifestation. In Zen circles it might be asked "if all things return to the one, to what does the one return ?"

Now this leads to certain paradoxes that are normally encountered. Neither Siddhartha's questions, nor the Zen Koan are aimed at an answer, but are instead are Kindly offered to be Thunder Claps aimed at shaking loose normal apprehension and the suffering Siddhartha preached accompanied it.

Sample Postings of *Ray Of Light*

Greetings Ye Seekers of Truth and Understanding,

It is conditioned thinking that says "But we don't know that", because we are fully Aware of it. It is because of the conditioned thinking that we do not Realize that we are Aware of it. And so we *go* on *quests* try to "Discover it for myself", all time under the auspices of our conditioned thinking. So it is a conditioned quest and a conditioned discovery. When all we have to do is drop the conditioned thinking about quests and discoveries and knowing, we will begin to Awaken to the fact that there is no quest or discovery or knowing at all. We Awaken to the fact that it was all a rue by the Grand Trickster the mind to keep us occupied and away from Awakening. You say that many tell you the same things and this is in your head -- you have heard, but you have not *Listened*. Hearing is the resonance of sound in the ear-drum assembled parts, Listening is the resonance of sound in the Whole Being. So if I may offer: first learn to Listen, then Observe the conditioned thoughts as they arise and why they arise.

First, it is the thoughts arising before we experience any given Moment that we must subdue and in most cases discard completely. The thoughts are the "clouds". We can not "become enlightened", we can only BE Awakening. *Became* (past) and *become* (future) are as much a fantasy as the *Tooth-Fairy*, for Reality is only Realized IN the very instant present Moment. And in order to Dwell IN the Moment we must discard our conditioned thinking. So if there must be a *knowing*, perhaps it would serve you well to know of the practices and techniques of conditioning. And if there must be a *discovering*, perhaps it would serve you well to discover your conditioned thinking. And if there must be a *quest*, perhaps it would serve you well to be on a quest to discard the conditioned thinking.

For if you see a mountain, then you see a separate object that you call a mountain so all you are doing is experiencing the label. But since the mountain is not the label, and is an entity all of it's own, when we experience the entity instead of the label we Realize that the *Two are One* and so no label of mountain -- only Oneness. In so doing, we Realize that the entity that we label mountain IS What-IS IN that Experience that very instant present Moment -- nothing more and nothing less.

Is that *tale* or *tail* ? For the conditioned mind is always chasing it's tail !

Though I have not read it recently, it sounds about right that we would be about at the apex of the Aquarian cycle about now. However, one must expect to feel the influences of any *approaching* cycle as well as influences of any give cycle that one is in. So though the Aquarian cycle had not reached it's peak of influence, varying degrees of that influence has been felt for the past seventy odd years or so, as the influences of any minor cycle of this type lasts for a hundred-seventy-five to two hundred years. It may be added that we also feel influences of the past cycle until we reach the apex of the cycle that we are in.

Full fledged Astrologers could tell us more about the above as well as this upcoming Taurean Age. I have commented, in response to talk of Aquarian Age influences, that there are more than these energies in play. That is to say that we are in a major dark Age cycle of Kali Yuga, it's influence Realized as closed-circuit attachment in the physical realm. The minor cycle of Openness and Discovery of the Aquarian influences have given humanity the opportunity to Grow and Unfold IN his Awakening due to Truth no longer being *hidden*. Yet the foundation influences of Kali Yuga are always in conflict with Aquarian influences, so not only Aquarian influences need be reckoned with. And now that the Aquarian cycle is reaching it's apex and so will be diminishing it's influences, the next Taurus influences will gain more strength. As you Tauruses out there know, the coming age will be influenced by stubbornness and a certain bull-headedness, that, mixed with the influencing energies of blind adherence to the physical realm could very well be disastrous to humanity's Awakening. Though humanity is quite far removed from the Taurean cycle's apex (or maximum influence), the ways of the Taurus are being felt by humanity already.
