duality – unicity

::

Duality arises when consciousness arises. I am present and I know that I am present – that is duality. I am and I am not conscious of being present – that is unicity. There is only one, but when this conscious presence is there, then there is a sense of duality.

My Comment:

Consciousness emerges and a sense of duality is there. Can I recede in consciousness to the point of emergence, which is the emergence of the sense of “I” or “me”? Continue reading

upon becoming invisible I love

upon becoming invisible

the invisible shows Itself – only that

 slakes my thirst.

i must drop all points of reference

all identity, all characteristics,

all carry-overs of ‘me’,

all that i want, i prefer, i am,

and yet be infinitely gentle

one Truth – many points of viewing

Justin Williams - Energy

ENERGY by Justin Williams

My Comments: These excerpts of an ancient wisdom text, the Mandukya Upanishad, illustrate for me the attitude of the sages of antiquity when encountering many versions of “the truth”.

In the first passage, “Turiya” (the Fourth) is characterized and equated with “Atman”, which I would term, in our present day English, the Universal Being. The term “the Fourth” refers to a state (sometimes called the “no-state-state”) beyond the three states of waking, dreaming and deep sleep.

The second passage (Excerpt from the Chapter on Illusion), verses 16 through 32 illustrate how each of us, looking through our own filter, or point of view, will recognize a certain aspect of the Universal Being (Atman) and hold that to be “the Truth”. It is, indeed, our truth because it expresses our own unique experience of this One Being. Continue reading

Shift in Perception – A Real-Time Report

Awakening to Right Seeing

This is a report on a shift in perception that I am in the midst of. It is not a ten-word blip on the timeline in social media. If you are interested in the shift in perception that many are experiencing at present, then read on and take your time. This is not a ‘quick read’. Without patience and a relaxed state of mind while reading this you will only be frustrated, so no need to continue. Continue reading

mental preparation – understanding more deeply

cat studying

Our consensus consciousness is, in my understanding, the result of a kind of common denominator: what we all hold as true. Most of us are aware that our concepts about “truth” have been strongly manipulated and we are now in the process of dis-covering our own individual truth as a dynamic process of staying awake and alert, using inner awareness to bring about discernment, and thus gaining a more and more coherent view of what reality is and how it functions. This means study is required. Truth does not come delivered on a golden platter with the six o’clock news. There are several sources we can study that offer us concepts for a deeper understanding of truth. Two of my favorites at present are: The Law of One – Ra Material (link HERE) and The Nature of Personal Reality (Jane Roberts – the Seth Material – links HERE and HERE). The following message also provides, in my opinion, a deeper understanding that all of us will require in order to take in the coming Full Disclosure on the Humanity’s situation.

Message from the ‘Team’
Matrix of This Dimension
Peggy Black and the ‘team’
We are here always to support and encourage your true understanding of who you are. We continue to remind you that you are pure conscious energy and light. You are infinite and limitless. These concepts and ideas are being offered to you in many forms and many sources. We are also messengers to spark your awakening to your own unlimited magnificence. We honor you also in your physical form and realize that has been your main focus. However the time has arrived that you own and you recognize the truth of who you are as a being of light consciousness dwelling in matrix created by thought. You exist in a thought universe. Imagine for a moment that your reality could be a hologram of vibrations of  thought and light. We remind you the quote by one of your sages know as Albert Einstein  “Reality is merely an illusion albeit a very persistent one.” So we truly understand your difficulty in holding this field of awareness while everything around you feels so solid and “real”.Consider that if everything is vibration and frequency, which it is, and your brain is programmed to translate these vibrations in a certain way. There is a real possible that the limited programs, the limited information, the limited beliefs that have been encoded in your very DNA are a detriment to your awakening. You brain decodes and projects  onto the energy field creating the illusion of your physical world from all the misinformation and limited beliefs that are handed down one generation to another.

You media, your religions, and other forms of communication continue to empower and strengthen these limitations. Consider that every being on your planet is contributing to this illusion with their own limited beliefs and programs of limitation. You can begin to see how this reality continues to be held in this dysfunctional place.

When you as baby take your first breath, you engage with this energy matrix, this hologram or as we like to called it a hologame. You veil your infinite knowing in order to play in the 3D reality.

You as divine multidimensional being of light consciousness, are here in this seemingly physical reality to transform the misqualified energy. You as well as all others are here to bring light, to express light and to extend light.

Remember that your  thoughts are  a frequency, your thoughts are a vibration. Your words create in this holographic matrix. Your conscious vibrations  interface with this quantum field of energy. Even your human aura is a field of light that is felt by others in all exchanges. We have called these various vibrations that emanate from your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and programs your energy signature.

It is this energy signature that we are inviting you to own in a new conscious manner. To begin to step out of any pre-programmed beliefs that you have acquired that might be limiting in any way. Begin to question these beliefs. Investigate where you acquired them, what is holding them in place. Begin to recognize the trance state. Ask yourself  how these limited beliefs might be sabotaging some aspect of your life as well as your desire to support humanity in life-sustaining actions to transform this planet.

Remember that your physical form is made up of energy atoms and light, These energy atoms are talking to each other at all time. Every aspect of your own physical form is always in communication with the whole. So ask yourself what is your own personal body talk.  What do you say to your physical body throughout the day?  Do you acknowledge its support and well being?  Do you constantly reaffirm physical limitations?  Do you listen to various frequencies of the parts and pieces which form your physical/energy body?

We invite you to consider that your body is a hologram of your thoughts, beliefs and programs. Even as solid as it feels  and as solid as you experience it, it is a matrix of light particles, interfacing and responding to other light particles of various vibrations and frequencies.

Consider that your thoughts are the building blocks of the hologram. It is divine thought that is the creator of oneness, you are part of this oneness, always have been and always will be. It is the spark of divine thought/vibration within you that is the creator of all you experience. This one truth can set you free of any limitations. We will repeat this for you: it is the spark of divine thought/vibration within you that is the creator of all you experience.

So begin to play in the hologame, this hologram in a manner that is unlimited. Realize that you can shift how and where you place your focus. Ask yourself why might you create this in your personal hologame? Ask yourself why you might support the creation of issues and situations on the planet that are  life diminishing? Become aware of your focus, do you focus on the problems or do you focus on the reality you desire to experience?

This mental shift is the work of a true master of consciousness, who understands that this reality, as solid as it feels, as enjoyable as it is, as challenging as it can be, is an illusion truly created by the energy thoughts of light interfacing with the matrix of this dimension. Begin to play full out with this thought-universe. Allow yourself to engage with your true understanding and knowledge of your multidimensional self as an aspect of wholeness and oneness as a divine creator.

We have spoken about thinking and creating outside the box of your limitation. We continue to inform and encourage you to recognize, know and own your creative power as a being of  divine light consciousness existing in all time-frames and dimensions. And as this being of divine light consciousness you have allowed an aspect and focus to play and create in this 3D reality because it is an adventure. Realize that you truly pop in and pop out of this existence.

We understand that we have stretched you just a bit. However, we also acknowledge that you as pure energy are quite stretchable. We are ever available to assist and support you in any way. We are as close as a request as all other divine conscious beings are as well. We are one remember.

the inner sun

inner light 1

I am a self-luminous being. As my luminosity is directed back onto itself it becomes aware of itself as pure luminosity that shows up as various shapes and forms. Sounds, smells and tastes are as well forms of this luminosity. Viewed from this vantage point, thoughts are so much chirping of the human bird – at times audible and then we call it words and speech. When this chirping is not audible we call it thoughts or mind-chatter. This chirping can help to transfer images from one person to another and therefore can serve to align the movements of our luminosity into harmony, or also into disruptions of the patterns of luminosity, as the case may be.

accept all changes: zen

letting go

Excerpt from  the Chapter ATTACHMENT, NON-ATTACHMENT – Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, Shunryu Suzuki (bold highlights are mine)

“That we are attached to some beauty is also

Buddha’s activity.”

 

Dogen-zenji said, “Even though it is midnight, dawn is here;

even though dawn comes, it is nighttime.” This kind of

statement conveys the understanding transmitted from Buddha

to the Patriarchs, and from the Patriarchs to Dogen,

and to us. Nighttime and daytime are not different. The

same thing is sometimes called nighttime, sometimes called

daytime. They are one thing.

 

Zazen practice and everyday activity are one thing. We

call zazen everyday life, and everyday life zazen. But usually

we think, “Now zazen is over, and we will go about our

everyday activity.” But this is not the right understanding.

They are the same thing. We have nowhere to escape. So

in activity there should be calmness, and in calmness there

should be activity. Calmness and activity are not different.

Each existence depends on something else. Strictly speaking,

there are no separate individual existences. There are

just many names for one existence. Sometimes people put

stress on oneness, but this is not our understanding. We do

not emphasize any point in particular, even oneness. Oneness

is valuable, but variety is also wonderful. Ignoring

variety, people emphasize the one absolute existence, but

this is a one-sided understanding. In this understanding there

is a gap between variety and oneness. But oneness and variety

are the same thing, so oneness should be appreciated in each

existence. That is why we emphasize everyday life rather

than some particular state of mind. We should find the

reality in each moment, and in each phenomenon. This is a

very important point.

 

Dogen-zenji said, “Although everything has Buddha nature,

we love flowers, and we do not care for weeds.”

 

This is true of human nature. But that we are attached to

some beauty is itself Buddha’s activity. That we do not care

for weeds is also Buddha’s activity. We should know that.

If you know that, it is all right to attach to something. If it

is Buddha’s attachment, that is non-attachment. So in love

there should be hate, or non-attachment. And in hate there

should be love, or acceptance. Love and hate are one thing.

We should not attach to love alone. We should accept hate.

We should accept weeds, despite how we feel about them.

If you do not care for them, do not love them; if you love

them, then love them.

 

Usually you criticize yourself for being unfair to your

surroundings; you criticize your unaccepting attitude. But

there is a very subtle difference between the usual way of

accepting and our way of accepting things, although they

may seem exactly the same. We have been taught that there

is no gap between nighttime and daytime, no gap between

you and I. This means oneness. But we do not emphasize

even oneness. If it is one, there is no need to emphasize one.

 

Dogen said, “To learn something is to know yourself; to

study Buddhism is to study yourself,” To learn something

is not to acquire something which you did not know before.

You know something before you learn it. There is no gap

between the “I” before you know something and the “I”

after you know something. There is no gap between the

ignorant and the wise. A foolish person is a wise person; a

wise person is a foolish person. But usually we think, “He

is foolish and / am wise,” or “I was foolish, but now I am

wise.” How can we be wise if we are foolish? But the understanding

transmitted from Buddha to us is that there is no

difference whatsoever between the foolish man and the wise

man. It is so. But if I say this people may think that I am

emphasizing oneness. This is not so. We do not emphasize

anything. All we want to do is to know things just as they

are. If we know things as they are, there is nothing to point

at; there is no way to grasp anything; there is no thing to

grasp. We cannot put emphasis on any point. Nevertheless,

as Dogen said, “A flower falls, even though we love it; and

a weed grows, even though we do not love i t .” Even though

it is so, this is our life.

 

In this way our life should be understood. Then there is

no problem. Because we put emphasis on some particular

point, we always have trouble. We should accept things just

as they are. This is how we understand everything, and how

we live in this world. This kind of experience is something

beyond our thinking. In the thinking realm there is a difference

between oneness and variety; but in actual experience,

variety and unity are the same. Because you create some idea

of unity or variety, you are caught by the idea. And you have

to continue the endless thinking, although actually there is

no need to think.

 

Emotionally we have many problems, but these problems

are not actual problems; they are something created; they

are problems pointed out by our self-centered ideas or

views. Because we point out something, there are problems.

 

But actually it is not possible to point out anything in particular.

Happiness is sorrow; sorrow is happiness. There is

happiness in difficulty; difficulty in happiness. Even though

the ways we feel are different, they are not really different,

in essence they are the same. This is the true understanding

transmitted from Buddha to us.

Living New Earth Now: Breathing

This post contains three pages from the book “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind” by Shunryu Suzuki. There is a lot said in this short chapter from Shunryu’s classic on zen that for me is directly relevant to living the new paradigm. As you can see, this new paradigm is not really so new to humanity as a whole and many sages throughout the ages have lived as the New Human. This time we live in is the Shift of the Ages because so many of us now understand the need to live this new way and have acquired the skills to do so. I read Shunryu’s instructions substituting the words “the new paradigm” where he says “zazen” or “Zen practice” etc. Reading it this way frees this understanding from a label like ‘Zen”, since it is actually universal in my understanding.
