All is yourself

Posted on

I agree what you say, in the sense that I know that what you say is part of your experience and is real, but as much as I make an effort, I have no idea of what you really want to say, because the form though which One is manifesting (in order words me) is not awakened yet, otherwise there would be any problem. I accept the fact that there is one Oneness that is manifesting through various forms, but to be able to speak about awakening maybe  must be experimented from each various forms, otherwise why on a certin point a particular form understand the Reality of what is and instead others keep on being outside of it? It must necessarily happen something in order for this to happen and if it happens for me and you remain in the sleeping, this Oneness maybe is fragmented in itself and its complete awakening can happen only in the awakening of “all” forms, through which is manifesting itself. There is just One and this is seen just through certain forms, but why not by all? Which is the difference between a form and another? The Love of Oneness is manifestiung through the single forms, what has been happening?, if all is already Enlightenment?

If you imagine you are the body/mind you have limited yourself to that way of seeing yourself.
In that way of seeing it appears as if there are many others in many other body/minds
The moment that you see what you actually are it is obvious that there are no others, all is yourself.
So from the point of view where you see yourself as the body/mind separation appears to be true
When one sees oneself without a location one is everything, everywhere, in all things.
This means that one was always the One but did not see this, nevertheless one was and always is this that is in and appearing as all.
In some forms the Self is not recognised because of identification with the body/mind and in some that identification is no longer present.
Which ever is the case it is happening always to the One. There is only the One.

No enquiry is necessary

“Today I was reading of the ‘ vacuity’ of the form and non form, and how is difficult to understand the concept of it. I did not get which kind of enquiry should be done”.

Do not be so bothered about enquiry, it is simple.
You are not the body because it is an object that you SEE
You are also likewise not the mind because that too is objective.
What remains that is witnessing the appearance and disappearance of these two is what you are, very simply you are Awareness.
As awareness you can only be aware of yourself directly without any means or techniques etc
If attention is able to remain aware of this awareness all else will drop into place without effort and if attention is not able to do this it is simply not yet time for this to be steady, no effort will bring it about.
You are already Awareness, there is nothing to be added.
If there is a problem at all it is because it is too obvious and simple and the mind tries to DO it LOL

Dissolving the suffering

“Sorry, but I have a bit of confusion… We create what is outside of us – so also something that produces in us suffering – to be able to stay with that feeling of pain. It happens nevertheless to me that at times I go to bed very surrine in the evening and in the morning I feel like crap and if I look for the reasons I dont find them, even if at that point all around me, relantionships, situations are influenced by it, and even the weather becomes grey. There is no something outside that provokes this pain, it is like a tight knot, but this pain presents itself often, it disappears like magic and after a while is again present. I hug you”.

Until it is seen that all is One and one is stabilised in this seeing there will be areas where one is not emotionally connected and so certain areas and things will obviously point out the fact that in those places there appears to be separation, this is the knot that you say is felt. It is the contraction of energy that is a recoil from what one is present to in that particular moment.
In order for these moments of recoiling from things to go away one only has to stay with whatever sensation is present at that time. As one does so the contracted energy begins to loosen up and eventually is no longer held in contraction. Often then, when the sensation dissolves, there is the arising at am intellectual level of what it was about that particular object that gave rise to the recoil, this however is not the rule and neither is it a necessity for once the recoiling from that particular thing is no longer present it is simply no longer a problem that needs to be dealt with by understanding anyway.

It is of course possible that something in a dream state can also give rise to this contracting in the same way as it happens when one is in the waking state, this then would account for the fact that you go to sleep feeling great and wake up feeling crap.
Those areas that we are not open and connected to are unconscious in us and it is not possible to know what or where they are until we become aware of them subconsciously, which means that they are already surfacing to be recognised consciously. As this is happening we take them on as sensation and if the sensation is allowed to dissolve into us it disappears, The object then has returned to its source, the one that witnesses it.

By being aware that doing anything towards personally dealing with these things we actually feed them and their continuation we naturally do nothing and in this doing nothing, where no one is doing anything at all, they dissolve.

By doing nothing I am not suggesting that there is someone present who can do the doing nothing. Doing nothing is what takes place when what has been previously unconscious has been noted to be arising as a sensation that is uncomfortable, at this point there is a developing awareness to the point of being conscious of what has been there all the while which one intuited was preventing connecting fully with ones situation and this then when left alone to unfold surfaces and dissolves. It is all simply happening  without help from an imaginary somebody.
Yes it is true even the greyness of the weather is a reflection along with all else.

As the One that creates all you are not the body or the mind as they too are reflections, created objects, so when finally they too are fully embraced they also dissolve into the One who was the witness of them and all else all along, Then a big sigh arises, One is home.
A BIG hug Avasa

Letter To A Friend.

12.1.213. The Way Home.

Having read what you have to say about your childhood I can say that it is very similar to my own past experience as a child. I too had to watch my mother do things, mainly to myself , that were beyond the normal chastisement towards a child.

From my own experience and also what I have seen of others experiences in such matters I do not for one second believe that the answer is to delve into the past and recall the memories as if the answers lay in that direction. I do not encourage anyone to uncover memories that were anyway based upon the idea that they were belonging to someone or that they happened to someone.

As long as we remain entertaining the idea that working through memories is the way forward we will be continually going backward and the mind will eventually create new false memories of what took place, it is the play of analysis.

The answer is as I have stated from the first time that we met. The energy that arises prior to the appearance of the memory is what is important and this is the ONLY way to go ahead with the removal of the effects of such past experiences.

One does not have memories ALL the time but if when they arise one jumps into play with them then they are lengthen and reinforced and their continuation is guaranteed so the answer is to simply remain at the level of the sensation prior to the mental stories arising from the sensation.

I say simply but of course initially it is not simple and so it requires a trust that this is the way to go. This trust gives way to a kind of knowing which at a later date gives rise to a higher understanding of how things have moved in the correct direction as the mental stories have dropped away and the sensations also have greatly lessened.

What we put our attention on is fed by our attention. Our attention is the first activity that arises from the No-Thingness of Being and it therefore creates what it intends to seek in what it is seeking into. This means that any story we put our attention on brings more of that story into play and not less of it.

I have met many people who have been in psychiatric “care”, and also know many who have turned to psychologists for help, which is a step in a better direction as far as I am concerned, but have never seen a result that could be said to have brought them to a place of natural balance. There were always residues remaining after analysis and in the case of medication and psychiatry all the problems later resurfaced.

The first thing that is required is that one realizes that no one can undo the knot of confusion for you and also that you yourself cannot do it by any method. Staying with the sensation prior to it appearing as a mental story, that then reinforces the story endlessly, is the only way through the maze of mindstuff. This implies doing absolutely NOTHING, allowing things to be as they are and noting what is arising without being drawn into the many patterns of avoidance which the mind has created to get away from the sensations.

These sensations are the doorway THROUGH and beyond the jungle of the mental AND the feelings.

These things belong to a mind that has become very confused due to bad programming from people who themselves were badly programmed by people who themselves were etc etc etc

When I found out what my mothers childhood was like, many years after the effect she had had on me had subsided, I felt only sadness towards her for what she had been through. She felt this and acknowledged that in her new connection with me, I had not seen her for twenty six years. Our new relationship was fresh and open and left us free in one another’s company to be ourselves.

So as always I will repeat STAY WITH THE FEELING!

The going into of the story serves absolutely no purpose in removing the problem, which is the stories themselves. Remaining at the level of the feelings with intention to get them to go in a particular direction is of no use either, as this intention will be coming from the problematic mind play anyway.

Reread this if necessary over and over until you see clearly what is being stated here.

This is NOT new information about how to solve a problem of the mind but information that has one simple message in it.

Problems cannot be solved, they disappear when they DIS-solve, nothing of them then remains.

The mind has developed many strategies to avoid touching the sensations that arise prior to the mental stories and so these patterns of avoidance will be present but if the attention remains on the natural unfolding of the sensations and not moved by the sensations patterns then they will drop away.

When this takes place there will be nothing, no mental activity and no feeling activity and in that there is freedom, freedom from the original problem, the idea that one is a person.

You and I and all other beings are not what we believe ourselves to be, we are this that remains when all that can be classified as personal has dropped away.

We are No-thing, Emptiness, impersonal and free.

This is the way home, there is no other door.

May you recognize what is written here and pass through this hinge-less door to the place that you have never actually left.

With much Love Avasa.

Surprise

28.12.2012.

The delight of Life is surprise, what would life be if one revealed the future all the time before it took place? Would it be worth living?

Everything that happens to us happens, just happens, it cannot be made to happen and it cannot be made to not happen, it is in the pipeline.

There is the illusion that someone is in charge of life and that this imagined someone has control over what takes place and what does not. If this were true there would be no suffering, but there is.

As long as this idea that there is someone that can change what arises is present there is suffering.

When this concept falls away so does the suffering as the resister is no longer present.

When letting go happens the imagined separate one’s will surrenders to the will of the Divine as the separate one is seen to be non existent.

In every detail of all the circumstances that arises as what appears to be ones personal life there is nothing personal. Life happens without the consent of what is imagined to be a person.

Life simply happens.
