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.
Hold Awakening Dear
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.
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 impermanent 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/AS the Silence we Hear. IN/AS the Void we See. IN/AS 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*.
"Perception" is but a word to describe how we look at things, and has little to do with fact or fiction. The perception is either faulty or not. When our perception is founded on conditioned ideas and images and meanings and notion of all sorts that biases our response or reaction to a given Moment, projecting those preconceived notions into/onto that Moment, then it is a faulty perception. On the other hand when our perception is founded on no conditioned ideas or images or meanings or notions of any sort, projecting noting into/onto any given Moment, then we are able to respond to any given Moment AS it IS, which is not faulty but rather What-IS Reality.
Of little importance, what you could have done or would have done or should have done. What is important is that you did what you had to do that very instant present Moment without thinking about the coulds and woulds and whatfors. Use that as a guide. Use it as a guide in dealing with conditioned notions -- do what must be done to let go of the conditioned notions without thinking about it. You see, you already know what to do -- it is your Nature. But you think about it first. Then, since thinking is the domain of the mind, and since the Grand Trickster has dominion over the mind, he says "na, don't worry about that trivial thing". And since it is more comfortable and easier to agree with him than not, you do. It is only when the mind is Silent that your perception is Pure and not controlled and manipulated by conditioned ideas and images and meanings.
Perception is simply your ability to Realize that there is anything to Realize, your ability to Understand that there is anything to Understand, your ability to Recognize conditioned ideas and images and meanings and notions of all sorts and let them go. Nothing to be free of or aware of.
Seems to me that rocks do it all the time -- free themselves of perception. But then again, I am not sure because I am not a rock. Next time you are out in the field, ask a rock and tell us what it told you.
Truth simply IS. But then again, perception also simply IS. So I would say that both ARE. On the other hand, it would be most difficult if neither or either were NOT. So I would have to say that there is a relationship between both, for one would be no use without the other.
Fact is Truth and Truth is Fact, but filtered by the conditioned mind both are Illusion for both are but projections of our conditioned ideas and images and meanings. Re-define your notion of *perception*. That may help. No memory, flawed or perfect, is Truth. Rather, memory is but a data-file of information. Not Real or Truth, for Reality and Truth are only IN/AS the Moment.
The data in the file may very well be correct or Factual or Truthful, but is not Real so can not be Fact or Truth for it is but an experience of the past. This very instant present Moment is Real, this very instant present Moment is Fact, this very instant present Moment is Truth, all else is but a regret or a wish. Call forth the data-file to respond IN/AS the Moment, but do not let the date clutter up your Pure uncluttered perception IN/AS the Moment.
Ah, the crux of the matter. It is conditioned ideas and images and meanings that construct our perception and not that perception constructs anything. It is the conditioned ideas and images and meaning that we have to let go of and not perception. Perception is an ability that has evolved with us, not something that we added at some point. Conditioned ideas and images and meanings are what we have added and so that is what we have to let go of.
Judgement is condition notions, perception is not. Perception is discernment when the perception is Pure (unconditioned), and Illusion when perception is conditioned. Discernment is neither universal or transient, but rather the Pure Observation and Pure Recognition and Pure Realization of What-IS. Which is obviously the Pure Observation and Pure Recognition and Pure Realization of Truth. Which is obviously the Pure Observation and Pure Recognition and Pure Realization of Reality. Which is obviously the Pure Observation and Pure Recognition and Pure Realization.
There is no *start* nor an *end* to Awakening, there is only Awakening. Each person is different, each set of conditionings are different, and therefore each route one takes in life is different. There are many route to the Path, but they all lead to the same Path. So to say "start here" or "start there" would be an exercise for you in futility. For the True *start* is when YOU realized that something is wrong in your thinking and behavior, when YOU realized that YOU were Sleeping, when YOU realized that YOU are a controlled manipulated automaton lead around by the *majority of consensus*. From that point on you must Openly and Honestly Seek for vital information that will aid you in your Awakening. Do not be deceived in thinking that you can *follow* another, for another's Awakening is not your own. I CAN help you, but I can not Save you -- you will have to do that yourself.
No one Saves us but ourself, no one can and no one may, others can Point to the Path, but we ourself must Walk the Way. It is the Slain who Slays the Slayer. For IN/AS the Silence we Hear, as IN/AS the Void we See, as IN/AS Awakening we ARE. When one realizes completely the Awakening, he sees no object. He, himself, is the source of all things, and his True Nature is another name of the Eternal Divine Self. Material things and mental phenomena come and go like clouds in the blue sky. Greed, anger and ignorance -- these three foams appear and disappear like a mirage on the ocean.
If you wish to BE Awakening, you must look into your own Inner-Nature, as this nature IS the Awakening. If you have not seen your own nature, what is the use of thinking of Awakening, or reciting Scriptures, or fasting, or keeping precepts ? Ta-mei Fa-ch'ang asked Ma-tsu, "What is the Buddha ?" Master Ma answered, "This very mind is the Buddha". A monk asked Ma-tsu, "What is the Buddha ?" Master Ma answered, "No mind, no Buddha".
Life IS Life, and must BE Lived -- but must BE Live Purely without conditioned notions projected into/onto it. But *desire* it not. It is the conditioned notions about Life that is undesirable and not Life itself, for Life is just Life and nothing more or nothing less.
Do not *believe* it, but rather BE it -- for it is True.
We can wear masks for appearances sake, but when we can admit what we can admit to ourself we have made a giant step toward our Awakening. Most turn away from the Mirror of Truth and deny it even to themselves. They can not bare to acknowledge who they really are. You have taken an important step. Namely: you have acknowledged Suffering, you have acknowledged a Cause of Suffering. NOW acknowledge that you have the Power to let go of those Causes. That in itself should be motivation to do something about it. And you obviously have the motivation to do something about it because you have come here as a refuge -- which is another step toward your Awakening.
Undo the lock ! YOU have the Key. And only YOU can unlock the Lock. We must let go of our conditioned notions. Which is a most arduous task. For before we can let go of them we must Realize the futility in them. Realize the unimportance of them. Realize that they are your enemy. Realize that they are more of a burden than they are worth. It is like giving up a bad habit, we find it hard and we are always tempted to return to the habit because we *want* to or because others are engaged in the habit around us. But when we convince ourself that we are just going to do away with the habit come hell or high water, we get over the habit perhaps never to return to it again. So, look at letting go of the Causes of your Suffering as though you were bound and determined to give up a habit.
And Meditate -- meditate on this, and the Rays of Light and the Private Teachings. The mailings will not Save you, as Meditation will not Save you, but they are Tools to Help you Save yourself.
To Understand God we must Understand thyself, to know God we must know thyself, to Realize God we must Realize our own Pure True Nature. For it is our own Pure unconditioned True Nature that is God. to Dwell WithIN our Pure True Nature is to Dwell WithIN God. When we do not Understand, when we do not know, when we do not Realize our Pure True Nature, we can not Understand or know or Realize God. And so it is an exercise in futility to *think* about the un-Understandable or the un-knowable or the un-Realizable, for it is but conditioned dualistic drivel.
A hermit was meditating by a river when a young man interrupted him.
"Master, I wish to become your disciple," said the man.
"Why?" replied the hermit.
The young man thought for a moment. "Because I want to find Awareness."
The master jumped up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him into the river, and plunged his head under water. After holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling to free himself, the master finally pulled him up out of the river. The young man coughed up water and gasped to get his breath.
When he eventually quieted down, the master spoke. "Tell me, what did you want most of all when you were under water."
"Air!" answered the man.
"Very well," said the master. "Go home and come back to me when you want Awareness as much as you just wanted air."
Indeed, always the place to start is right where you are this very Moment. The Meditative Sate of Mind, Self-Observation, Self-Remembering, Self-Actualization, Self-Realization is a state of BEing that we ARE each Moment from Moment to Moment and not a mere exercise here or there. The Meditative Sate of Mind, Self-Observation, Self-Remembering, Self-Actualization, Self-Realization is a way of Life each Moment from Moment to Moment and not a mere vacation or retreat practice. Awakening is about BEing, and manifesting the Meditative Sate of Mind, Self-Observation, Self-Remembering, Self-Actualization, Self-Realization in every aspect of our life.
Do not "get rid of negativities", rather Understand them then let them go. Do not love them nor hate them, Understand them and let them go. Love and hate are conditioned notions that have no place in our meditation nor our Awakening. Study them, dwell on them, meditate on them, determine from where they come and what purpose they have. Fully Understand them as you want to Understand yourself, for it is in Understanding them that you can let them go. That they are defilements is a given, but we would cling ever so tightly to defilements as a fear of the unknown. So we must know them (Understand them) so we can let them go. Nothing mystical or paradoxical about this, and not only possible but necessary in our Awakening.
Rationalizing is a product of the conditioned programmed controlled manipulated mind, so Awakening we can rationalize notion. We must See What-IS AS it IS, and not what we project into/onto whatever. So if you Seek Awakening, "ride boldly ride, the shade replied, if you seek for Eldorado".

Strong the conditioned mind hard to tame the shrew Only in devoted practice can it be Silenced by few, Can give it no credence nor attention for it to be Still Whatever it takes you must take from it it's own Will. -- Yogajyotii
You made this vile demon that you call God yourself The troll hides under the bridge in your Heart this elf, With much phenomenal Desire to come out and play Regardless of the Suffering reeked in any given day. -- Yogajyotii
So rid yourself of this elf shut down the form as well There's nothing beyond this anew Moment but Hell, Your contents is the Trickster no past or future here Let go of yourself hold nothing but Awakening dear. -- Yogajyotii

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.
To believe means 'fervently to wish to be true'. A belief is conviction of the truth or reality of a thing, based on insufficient grounds to afford indisputable knowledge. A belief is an assumption, a notion, an idea, an emotion-backed thought that requires faith. Beliefs are misconceptions that require active scrutiny and intelligent investigation by anyone who sincerely wants to become free of the human condition. Many beliefs masquerade as 'truths'. Most people value belief over fact and the human condition over freedom.
It is extremely important for us to look into what constitutes a belief and what constitutes a fact. We must discover that simply because everybody believes something to be true does not make it a fact. Most people have absolutely no idea of the difference between a belief and a fact. A fact is a fact, as in tangible, corporeal, material, definitive, present, obvious, evident, current, substantial, physical and palpable. A fact is demonstratively evident to all that it is actual and or that it works. We used to believe the sun went around the earth and that the earth was flat, but both turned out to be mere beliefs. When one is not interpreting through belief systems it becomes obvious what is really happening rather than the 'I's theories, a Truth is Realized by Direct Experience or Observation.
When one really begins to investigate beliefs, one discovers that the 'me' who 'I' think 'I' am, is nothing more than a 'program', laid over instincts of fear, aggression, and the desires that one is born with. So to question beliefs is to question one's very 'self' or 'my' social identity and sense of 'self'. Only by challenging the very act of believing itself, can one actively dismantle and eliminate all of the beliefs that 'I' hold so dearly. To replace beliefs with facts is to eliminate one's 'self' and to penetrate into the 'Mystery of True Life'.
I offer no new revelations, new messages from God, new Insights into the awesome mechanism of the Cosmos, any more than any of the most profound of Scriptures or any Wise Sage has offered for even they were not *new*. Truth and Reality and What-IS is right there under our nose, so to speak, but we are to much into Sleeping to Realize it. Sleeping, we keep our arms outstretched trying to grasp that for which we seek. Awakening, we Realize that there is nothing out there to grasp onto, and so we turn our Attention Within. When we shift our Attention Within, and seek to Understand ourselves, we find not only ourselves but we also find God. We soon Realize that when we search for God we find a collection plate in a church, but when we search for ourselves we find God. An interesting turn of events, I would say.
