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.
You have spent much time and effort acquiring the skills that you have, there seems to be no reason to discard those skills and start anew. For obviously not only the skills are involved here, but rather the dedication to a vocation that you have established as YOU. A lot of work that does not unfold as a fruitful result is part of your field, you knew that before entering it. It is not so much the dead-ends that is frustrating you, for it is the *challenge* that draws you in your field. I see that you have established the necessary skills and attitude for the endeavor, but now you must establish Awareness IN the Moment so that you can not only be the officiator but can also BE the results.
You see, any good artisan can change lead to gold -- but the procedure is too costly making it impractical. Yet, when we conduct the procedure using The Philosopher's Stone as an ingredient the lead Transmutes to Gold instead of mechanically changing to gold. If you take a look at some of the greatest craftsmen of our time and past times, you will note that they were not only supremely skilled and dedicated but also quite Awake. The fickle finger of fate pointed you to this little Oasis in the vast Desert because obviously here is where you may Uncover the next ingredient in your BEcoming both Awake and perhaps another of those great Craftsmen.
If I may offer, perhaps the answer would lie in discovering if one can watch those believed to be watching the beauty of life while making it into a problem, without making it into a problem ! No-thing exists outside of What-IS immediately present. The potential for further existence is viable, but it would be an impossible conception to say potential exists. If potentiality existed as any-thing, it would no longer be potential, but instead it would be actual.
This is a very interesting belief system you have, and based on the belief that thought, as described here above, operates over, on, above the Moment in which it is. It alludes to separate minds, interfering with an Absolute Reality. I do not care to be such a belief, nor do I find sense in it. It may be one of the beliefs that the thoughts describes interfering with relationship. I can find no need to turn myself upon myself. If we choose to be thought, so be it. If it is to be that the thought is false, then we shall know it upon and through ourself once we discard our conditionings. This is Openly and Honestly Looking into the Mirror of Truth.
Is there other than one's own Inner Drummer worth Dancing to ? Is there sweeter more beautiful music than our own Inner Vibration of Awakening ? To this Drummer, to this Sound, is the Dancing Instructions of which I was speaking. So indeed, is there a more capable Instructor than one who practices such a Dance themselves ? Is this not the True Instructor, the Instructor who Instructs from Direct Experience and not from some ancient manual ?
Must there be a benefit ? Does it matter whether our struggle with the Causes of our Suffering are of this incarnation or a previous one ? Or whether it is personal or national or even global ? Must there be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ? Is there not more to True Reward than a few pieces of silver. Are answers the reason that we question ? Were there answers before we questioned ?
There are many acclaimed and venerated teachers from distant lands who gather great numbers of followers. Are these not simple folk like we, who perhaps only put on a good show in public ? And perhaps are not as such behind closed doors ? But these parrots of the Wisdom show such Compassion and Unconditional Love. Are we Blinded by our own desires for such Wisdom ? Are we so desperate to Realize Truth and What-IS that we are so easily duped ?
Sometimes Compassion and Unconditional Love are the sharpest most hurtful weapon one can use against one's conditionings. It can be very painful for another to endeavor to wrench our most dear conditionings from us. Awakening, the language is quite foreign to the Sleeping. This reflects the common disenchantment of those Awakening, and it drives them away from continuing their Unfolding Awakening. Once the door is opened however, it can not be completely closed again so Inner conflict builds. Who cares who does not Understand -- WE Understand !!! Is that not enough ? Must we get approval from others ?
There will never ever be another TODAY. From Moment to Moment, each Moment is anew and fresh and full of continued changing Wonder. I am sure that there was a YESTERDAY and I would say that there will most likely be a TOMORROW, but TODAY (since there never has been and never will be again) is well worth Directly Experiencing to it's maximum fullness AS it IS !!! And, AS we ARE !!!
Openly and Honestly Observing our conditionings and how they control and manipulate us, and thereby discarding them so as to Liberate or Free us to continue Unfolding our Awakening, IS indeed the most important activity that we as humans can do. The busy-work we call life is just that, busy-work. It is necessary to our stability and survival as a human element, but totally irrelevant to our Awakening. In this respect, our undertaking is two-fold then -- Awakening and manifesting that Awakening into every aspect of our lives as a human element.
True Observation is unattached Observation. So as we experience this emotion or fear we Observe it as though we were simply an onlooker. For True Observation is not only Observing the emotion or fear, but is also Observing how this emotion and fear controls and manipulates our thinking and behavior. That is, Observing the automatically arising *reactions* to situations and experiences, Observing the conditionings that establish such reactions. In this way you are the Observer AND the Observed. Since it is in the control and manipulation that we are prevented from Awakening, we see the futility of such emotions and fears, we see the self-destructiveness of such emotions and fears. And so we go about discarding the conditionings that have established the reactions of emotion and fear to any given situation or experience. This is why I say embrace the emotion and fear, because we have to Truly experience every aspect of it, what is does to us, what results from it, what it is a reaction to, the reasons and purpose for such reactions, etc. So we are a third-party Observer and at the same time we must be experiencing it so we are also the Observed. An Open and Honest *self-critique*, as it were.
If I may offer, can we be anywhere other than where we ARE this very instant present Moment ? Is there a *goal* to be reached ? Is there one to reach a goal ? We can not work on our Spirituality for this is but a game with it's parameters fixed by the Grand Trickster the conditioned mind, so Spirituality is but an Illusion perpetuated by our own conditioned thinking and behavior. By working with an Illusion, would not any results also be an Illusion ? Would it not be more productive to work on Observing and Recognizing and discarding the Causes (our conditionings) of our Suffering ?
A religion is a religion, by any other name is still a religion. And by way of any such organization is not The Way of Awakening from the Illusions that such organizations instill and perpetuate. Though it is very good to study old and new and ancient and modern religions and world Scriptures, alas in the end there can be no religion other than the dictates of our own Inner Awakening. 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 emptiness that is the essential nature of one concept, is the essential nature of all concepts. That which leads to dissatisfaction and disillusionment with one concept, must eventually manifest in the new concept used to replace it. It can not be stressed enough that the Search creates the Searcher. What there is to know is nowhere but Here Within this Moment. It is romantic and exciting to BE the valiant explorer, and if you enjoy this role, enjoy it fully, but do not play it hypnotized by the Illusion that there is something "out there" to discover, some secret to uncover, some code to decipher."
That is to say, that nothing is gained by replacing one belief system for another. That the seeming Emptiness and Silence and Awareness found in such an exchange is but Illusion and will eventually degenerate into the same ills that the prior one was exchanged for. To use the words *figuratively*, we Seek and we Find. But in Reality, for what we Seek can never be found for it will always elude us. There can be no Seeker as there can be no Search. The Direct Experience IN the Moment of the Observation of our conditioned thinking and behavior IS Realization. Self-Realization, Enlightenment, Awakening, to mention a few words used to Point to this Truth of What-IS. It can not be Found, it can not be Related, it can not be Sought after, it can not be Held on to -- it simply IS Realized the very instant present Moment IN the Direct Experience Of it. So all of our seeming *finding* is what is Realized Within. 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.
I would only add that in a very real sense our state of Awakening does both govern our lives as well as our conditionings. For it is IN Awakening that we are able to let go of the strangle-hold that our conditionings have on us and thereby live our lives unconditioned. No belief system or organization or external initiation brings about our Awakening, we do it ourselves by Openly and Honestly Observing our thinking and behavior and discarding that which Veils our Awakening. We are quite *self-contained*, in that once the Veils of Darkness (conditioned notions) are removed we Truly Realize ourSelf, we Truly Realize God. We Realize All IS and we ARE, without projecting any of our conditioned nonsense into/onto What-IS. Our labels and organizationally attained goals are but smoke-screens that Blind us to our own Potential Awakening. As mentioned before, our clinging to our conditionings IS our *Fall From Grace* (as it were).
Sample Postings of *Ray Of Light*
Greetings Ye Seekers of Truth and Understanding,
These "Ray of Light" 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.
Our only concern is to find an immediate answer to our various problems. But sooner or later the immediate answers are found to be unsatisfactory because no problem has an answer apart from the problem itself. But if we can Understand the problem, all the intricacies of it, then the problem no longer exists. Our Awakening would not allow it to exist in Understanding it. When we are Seeking to Understand a problem we tend not to look at the problem itself, but rather at the *resulting effects* of the problem. And so our *band-aids* and *quick-fixes* lose their enchantment when we Realize that the problem still exists. The *solution* to the problem is IN the problem itself, as the Cause of our Suffering is IN the Suffering. To Understand it is to Realize it's remedy.
God's Will ? My Will ? Your Will ? Will Rogers ? Why must it be someone's ? Why must it be one in leu of the other ? What is other ? Is not Will, Will ? May I offer, that if there is a Will, BE that Will and pay no mind to *possessing* it or that someone else possesses it. Will IS, why not let it BE as it IS rather than projecting our own conditioned notions into/onto it. If Will could be possessed, it would be bottled and could be purchased in the all-night drugstore -- so have no fear as long as there are all-night drugstores.
To See our own conditionings and frailties and shortcomings in the antics of others is indeed looking into The Mirror of Truth. Mirrors of Truth most often are in the most unlikely of places, yes ? And by Seeing such conditionings in ourselves and discarding them, we do not necessarily Save the world but we do Save a bit of it (ourselves). And what happens when we *empty* ourselves of these beloved conditionings ? Unprotected by the security-blanket that these conditionings seem to afford us ? Treading realms that even eagles fear to tread ? Opening our Inner Darkness to the Inner Light ? Dwelling IN the Eternal Moment ? We Reach and Touch the Face of God ! We are to 'God' what a wave is to the ocean, what a branch is to the vine. Each of us is a wave in the Ocean of Life, a branch of the Vine. And what is the Ocean without waves ? Where is the vine if not in the branches ? The Ocean is the Reality of every wave, as the Vine is the Reality of every branch.
May I offer that such Realization is neither happiness or joy, but rather the Realization of What-IS IS as it IS -- no happiness, no joy, no depression, no unhappiness, just IS What-IS.
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.
