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.
Be Again Sane
It is the Slayer that must be Slain, for there is no such thing as Death. When we can not Directly Experience What-IS as we ARE, then we are denying ourselves our Self.
To observe is not necessarily to understand, as discernment is not necessarily judgement. Dictionaries are compiled based on common usage and not necessarily True Meaning. We can observe the connectivity of two electrons propelled through space in opposite directions, but that is not to say that this connectivity is understood. As one can Understand the intricate working of the whole of the Cosmos, yet never observe it. So may I offer: observe and understand are not equatable words. And, "the mind or senses" have nothing to do with understanding. Tools perhaps, to gather information to aid our understanding, but is not relative to understanding. For it is not the mind or the senses that understand, it is you that understand -- as the Real You is way beyond the physical realm of mind and senses. So True Discernment is not a matter of mental or sense activity, but rather of True Understanding. When one Truly Understands that which is observed, one can then Truly Discern that which is What-IS and that which ISNOT -- not good or bad, but rather What-IS and What-ISNOT. Sleeping, we tend to lean toward that which ISNOT. Awakening, we tend to lean toward that which IS.
True observation is also a Recognition. The Recognition of that which IS and that which ISNOT. Sleeping, we will react to that which IS and respond to that which ISNOT. Awakening, we will respond to that which IS, Seeing through the Illusion of that which ISNOT. For that which ISNOT is not worthy of our Attention.
Again, it is not a matter of judgement but rather a matter of Recognition. We may Recognize that one is in a state of denial when they do not. For they will not want to admit to themselves that they are. Denial is a many faceted dimension of our conditioned notions, that leads most times to abuse and oppression and even to violence. The Sleeping judge, whereas the Awakening extend Compassion.
Only the Sleeping judge, as they have no clue as to What-IS is. They have their belief systems and value systems and pit something against another, resulting in judgement based on What-ISNOT. For What-ISNOT is what they understand best. For it could be both one's denial of What-IS and one's conditioned perception of value. For if we can not Recognize What-IS, any observation would be a judgement based solely on one's conditioned ideas and images and meanings and values. "As a man thinketh, so is he".
"To sin by silence makes cowards of men". That is, if we can Help yet deny that person our Help, we will "reap what we sew".
Indeed, *intent* is a major factor in anything we do or not do. For where there is intent there is a pre-disposition, a pre-conception, a pre-conditioned notion. And when this intent is not satisfied, then whatever it is that we are seemingly observing will be *judged* as erroneous in some way. THIS I have termed *Sleeping*. For AS Awakening there is no intent, there is no pre-disposition, there is no pre-conception, there is no pre-conditioned notion, there is only What-IS. Though intention can be very well hidden, it does become obvious to a trained eye or in the Works of those with intentions. It has been said: "you can fool some of the people all of the time and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time". So, Awakening we simply Observe What-IS and What-ISNOT and respond accordingly, with no intent. For as you said, those with intentions act according to their own particular conditioned notion. But they are not connected to anything resembling Truth.
Observation -- the very self-observations that I so often speak of. There is where our Salvation IS. But why we cling to these Causes of our Suffering ? They are our security blankets, though a very false security at best. We are conditioned to *think* that we are secure by these notions, only to find out when put to the test that we fall flat on our face and even establish that which we cling to these notions to secure us from. A rude Reckoning, but a vital one in establishing our Awakening. So if we have progressed enough along The Path in our last incarnation, so we are more inclined toward our Awakening, then we will be responsive to such Reckonings. And that is why there are those who can Point to those Reckonings and tell why there are such Reckonings. For if it were not for those Pointers and those fingers Pointing, we would be as confused with the Reckoning as we are with the false security.
When our attention is on What-ISNOT, we have many choices and many judgements to make. One of the joys of Sleeping is to be able to be greedy and lust for possessions and lust for another's possessions and condemn another for their beliefs do not match. Sleeping, we can enjoy beliefs and be hateful and spiteful -- it is our right. Awakening, we are deprived of these joys for all we are left with is What-IS. It is good that we can make such True Observations about ourselves. The next step is doing something about it. Though it must be borne in mind that Truth is anew and fresh each Moment, for each Moment as well as every aspect of it is anew and fresh.
Understanding is the Key to Realization, and so we can only Realize that which we can Understand. If we can only understand that which is not so, then we can never Realize that which is so. So it would behoove us not to equate that which is not so with that which is so, for projecting conditioned notions into/onto any given offering renders it invalid to us. That which IS is not in that which it appears, but rather in the intention behind the seeming appearance. Some times we only need Pointers to guide our Way, but other times we need a Shock or Whack on the head to get our Attention to be focussed on where the finger Points rather than be mislead by staring at the finger. Looking in the direction that the finger points will reveal the intricate Truths of all manifested form, yet staring at the finger too closely will only block our Sight of those Truths. Holding a penny up to the sky at arm's length we see the penny and the wonders of the visible universe, yet holding the penny too close to the eye we only see the penny.
I realize that it seems so unlikely to exist both mentally and physically without thoughts or memories of the past or assumptions about the future, from instant to instant, Moment to Moment. Always AS the Present Moment NOW. Yet it is more than likely, it is a dire necessity if we are to Awaken. We can not discard the memories, as we can not discard the thoughts, the Key is who controls who. That is, when thoughts and memories arise at the Moment of the experience of that Moment, they control our thinking and behavior in the Moment. When we embrace the Moment as it is, not having a preconceived notion about that Moment, nothing arising but the experience of the Moment, then we control the retrieval of memories and thoughts to respond skillfully to the Moment. So the difference is that we embrace each Moment anew, with a Silent mind, with no preconceived notions about that Moment. Each Moment as well as ourselves is a blank slate and nothing is written on that slate except the experience of that particular Moment. Then we are guided by the Moment, for we have died to the last Moment. We are conditioned to judge and plan and even predict each Moment. To do that, we must observe the Moment from a perspective of the past, as we need those thoughts and memories to evaluate and manipulate the Moment. Paradoxically, dwelling in the past we have no control of the Moment, we can only judge and plan and react to it, as it controls us. For only when we dwell AS the Moment do we have control of it. Not the control of the Moment, but rather control of ourselves AS that Moment. It is said that we are Masters of our Fate, yet we can not Master our Fate if we are always one step behind or one step ahead of that Fate. We can only Master the Fate that we ARE.
Any person can understand these words, and even envision the possibility of dwelling solely AS the Present, but they need much encouragement and much explanation to actually let go of the past and TRY dwelling AS the Moment from Moment to Moment. The sad part is that they fear they are going to lose something if the let go, and by doing so they are actually missing something by not letting go. For obviously the Key to dwelling AS the Present Moment is letting of the past Moment. Wonder not, for it is in the letting go of the old that we embrace the new as they can not walk hand in hand together. We can not put on a new garment while still wearing the old garment. As we cling to the old we can not meld with the new, there is a vast chasm between them. Fear not to jump across such chasm. Your Awakening beckons you, harken to it's call and Leap to it.
Observations will be different from one person to the next, so we Openly and Honestly Observe our every thought and every action and/or reaction. And if we are Open and Honest with ourselves, and not rationalize what we Observe, we will understand that which controls and manipulates us. THEN we can let it go. Self-Observation is a Self-Inquiry, so YOU must see your defilements not just me and others. Anyone can point out another's defilements but such is not of use UNTIL you Realize these defilements. No one can not Save you, for 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.
This mad conditioned world drives us crazy and confuses us and so we miss such Karmic opportunities. Such opportunities are not by chance but rather the attraction of needed energies and situations.
Call it an obsession if you will, but really it is a Love Affaire with the Whole of the Cosmos, the Whole of manifested form, the Whole of existence seen or unseen. For the challenge is an arduous and painful struggle to rid yourself of the toxic conditioning that is much cherished. It would be nice if we had a wand that we could tap everyone on the head and they would Wake-Up. But the fact of the matter is that 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.
Do not *want*, Do or do not, but never simply want. For you will continue existence on the Wheel of Life and Death until you get off the merry-go-round. Awakening is like this, on a merry go round speeding ever faster so we cling tightly for our safety. For we know that if we let go we will be thrown to the dirt and have to endure much pain. The fact of the matter is, though indeed it is painful to let go, the pain recedes quite quickly and we are Free form the dizziness we experienced on the merry go round. Let go.
It is very True that none are qualified to discern deficiencies in others who have not discerned them in oneself. Only those who have tread that Path, Walked that Journey, Truly observed themselves, can Point out pitfalls that lay before us, for no one else could know. If one has not observed what pitiful wretch one is, a controlled manipulated automaton, wallowing in the pain of self-pity and self-admonition, one could not related the Fires of Hell that Burn there. But when one Truly Openly Honestly looks into the Mirror of Truth and admits to himself that such defilements must be wrenched out regardless of the pain, and wrenches them out, THEN one can understand the Suffering that his Brethren endures. THEN can one understand what it is to wrench out such defilements. THEN can one Help another to do the same. It is a rude Reckoning, but a Reckoning that we all must face if we are to start Awakening.
"Created" indicates a beginning, yet there is no beginning or end to a given Moment -- IF we are always AS the Moment. The Moment is Eternity, though indeed it IS in and of itself. "Spontaneous" also indicates a beginning. Just pointing out how misleading your statement is to others and perhaps to yourself. This is not to be critical, but rather to Point to Openly and Honestly Observing yourself, your thoughts and words and actions.
A sad commentary on humanity that it has Evolved/Involved for close to a million years only to BE a conditioned programmed controlled manipulated automaton. Our journey has been long, yet where have we gotten ? We have changed a lot physically, but the Grand Trickster keeps our mind in the primordial mud.
Responding to the Moment is not removing ourselves from every day life, it is doing what must be done AS the Moment AT the Moment. Going off to a Hermitage or Retreat is the easy way of attaining Freedom, Awakening while still conducting our lives in the every day rat race of society is a test of our metal, and a test whether our Awakening is True.
Stuck ? Fear of becoming blank ? AS the Silence we Hear, AS the Void we See, AS Awakening we ARE. What makes you think that you can know the experience of the next Moment until you Directly Experience it ? You are stuck to your conditioned notions, for the future is no more real than the past. What conditioned notion have you let go of ? Truly Openly Honestly Observe yourself and answer that question to yourself without projecting any conditioned ideas or images or meanings into/onto that Observation. IF you can do THAT, you will have the solution to your dilemma.
And perhaps you will Realize this Freedom. But it takes a certain effort. An effort to rid yourself of the clutter that gets in the way of Aloneness. Get rid of the trees that hide the forrest. It is natural, we are alone. Until we are conditioned to the otherwise, we are perfectly content in our Aloneness. Look at the new born Guru, though it does clamber for attention and nurturing, we can tell by looking into it's eyes that it knows that it is alone and loves every minute of it. It is not attached, not even to the mother until the need of familiarity sets in. We are conditioned to think we need this familiarity, hence when we do not have it we feel lonely. Our thinking is fogged and so we do not realize that we were alone in the first place and that is the state we must get back to. The little Guru is closer to the Divine or Infinite that us conditioned adults, for it just came from there. Observe the little Guru, and ponder your observations. It is AS Self-Realization, it is AS Self-Actualization, it is AS Awakening.
AS the Present, AS the Moment, there is only What-IS at hand. To embrace the present Moment anew we can not project anything into/onto that Direct Experience. Is not a belief a projection of something we *think* is so ? There is no time to *think* AS the Moment, the present, there is only time to BE and embrace What-IS as it IS. We did not acquire a belief while AS the Present Moment for each Moment is anew, we acquired it AS a past Moment and we cling to it trying to carry it forward into the Present Moment. As the old saying goes, "you can't take it with you".
Ah, have you recognized yourself as an Observer. In Observing others we can see our own conditioned thinking and behavior. NOW, Observe the Observer ! For it is in the Observer Observing the Observer Observing that the Observed and the Observer can BE One in the same. And AS that Moment that the Observer IS the Observed we can Realize who we really ARE and who we have been conditioned to become. THEN, since who we ARE and what automatons we have become are so different, we can do something about rectifying the hideous creature we See in the Mirror of Truth. IF we dare.

Who is doing the dismantling and what is dismantled For ego is a contrivance of conditionings mishandled, Just a Mask a false front an Illusion that's manifested By the defiling conditionings that you are just Tested. -- Yogajyotii
When conditionings are let go ego is not to be found And not just coincidence but rather nowhere around, Neither guilt or seeming human nature nor some luck Will Free you as Freedom is another word for unStuck. -- Yogajyotii
Total Brainwash complete mind control as utter robots As many overt conditionings but mostly subliminal Rots, It is so ingrained that it may take us a life time of pain And a major struggle to root them out to be again Sane. -- 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.
It is not a matter of *finding* it, but rather in BEing it. If indeed WE generate the Desire, if indeed WE are responsible for the Desire, would it not also be possible to not generate the Desire ? If we indeed can do something, run for example, then it would seem that we would also have the power not to run, such as stand still. Desire being as much a conditioned notion as judgement, to let go of the conditioned notions would be letting go of Desire. Really a simple matter of simple math -- Desire being in the baggage, and we throw the baggage away, we also throw the contents of the baggage away. All of that baggage full of conditioned contents gets pretty heavy and quite the burden, as setting it down and Walking off from it really Frees one up.
We are but a Microcosm of the Macrocosm, an aspect of what is far greater than ourselves, a Ray of the Light, a drop of the ocean of manifested form. To Truly Understand ourself is to Truly Understand the greater Cosmos we are an aspect of. Diverse individual elements of the Whole, the One. Ingredients of the soup. Notes of the song. Steps of the Dance, the Cosmic Dance. To look deeply into even a grain of sand, as Sir Blake points out, is to See the very workings of our Cosmic Nature of Consciousness. As is stated in the Kaivalya Upanishad: "By meditation, they achieve the ultimate reality, which is unthinkable, unmanifest; the one of endless forms, the ever-auspicious, the peaceful, the immortal, the origin of the creator, the one without a beginning, a middle and an end; the only one, the non-dual, the all-pervading, the consciousness, the bliss, the formless, the wonderful."
So we are but a miniature of the Whole. To be Realized WithIN. So to "know thyself" we know the Whole, as to BE thyself we ARE the Whole. As Above, So Below. As Below, So Above.
Peace of mind is our greatest asset, so naturally it must be maintained regardless of the seeming costs. Conditioned notions, fears, are the main things that we must let go of to maintain a True peace of mind for the cost of fear is our peace of mind. Fearless, what stands in our way of BEing who we ARE ? Nothing ! After the fear has passed we see that all we have to fear is fear itself, that nothing else is really worthy of being afraid of. Besides, nothing, not even life itself, is worth the destruction of our *Peace of Mind*.
When we search for God, we find beliefs and religions. When we search for ourself, we find God. You will not find God *out there*. That for which we search outside of us will always elude us. As I have already said, if we do not see God when we look in the mirror, or if we do not see God when we look at a tree, or an animal, or our family, or the myriad Wonders of life itself, we will never see God. Only in our conditioned mind is God *other* than What-IS. When we Truly Seek God we Realize ourselves, when we Truly Seek ourself we Realize God. There is but One-Way to God, and that Way IS WithIN.
