It just is…

A simple awareness that can be practiced is to find that alert awareness which observes and animates this outward attention which observes the object, now if you pay attention you will notice that this outward attention if devoid of the urge to know will become pure attention or awareness and if you are able to observe and see the mental manifestation of tension in the form of blocked energy which happens because you are exerting force because you are unable to to fully understand the phenomena being observed, you will arrive at that which is the source and simply observes. Slowly you will realise that you have to loosen your frantic force full grip on all that which is a part of your consciousness and due to which a reaction in your mental energy sphere is created. By doing this you will arrive at that which observes without any effort or reaction but yet knows all. This pure awareness just is.

It is unconscious engagement with life which takes you away from it and the moment you clearly observe your folly you are there. This field of pure awareness is the field of all possibility and pure intelligence unsullied by memory of any kind.

Awareness to freedom

Attachment in relationships, well has been misunderstood, it is not what it generally is thought of as being. When you say you are attached, there is an element of desire in the sense that their a certain demand at the psychological, practical level. It might also be an impression of awe over the other persons achievements and this too can cause an attachment. So attachment always has some desires attached to them therefore an attachment though valuable at a certain level, cannot be deeper than that which fuels it, the demand or desire. Attachment is in the domain of duality so is subject to the forces which are dualistic and plays accordingly. An attachment can be refined and it can be shallow depending upon the psychological makeup of the subject or the person. Duality operates at the level of cause and effect therefore remains limited but yet at that level can be used graciously by the one who understands the dynamics well and has gone beyond these dualistic tendencies into the depths of self and known the source of animation of these difficult to deal with personality traits which they remain until not transcended.

An attachment can be to things, to people, to concepts, to ideas, to habits etc and the common theme is that in all these and other cases attachment has an anchor thought, demand, desire etc which keep the subject engaged and unconscious of the perils of this level of entanglement. The only tool to break this unconscious entanglement is to become fully aware of its working mechanism and to see how it engages the reactor which is your mind and by this awareness alone their will be a release of that energy which was fuelling this phenomena and you will feel this release. But don’t mistake yourself into thinking that you have done it. This awareness which is a level higher than what you had earlier requires that you break all such unconscious patters by reminding yourself again and again to snap out of this self sabotaging loop of unconscious behaviour. You will have to be persistent, that is the only way.

When you are able to observe any emotion which has been happening unconsciously and has been keeping you in that state of entrapped existence, you will see that this awareness alone is enough to set you free but to keep free you must be more aware so that you don’t get trapped by a new pattern or mistake a more refined patter for pure awareness.

Attitude

A difference in attitude is the thing to have, if you look for the best way to get the things at hand done you have a positive attitude this is one way to have a better focus because you have an edge of positivity. Another way to maintain a focus is commitment to make the best effort with confidence. All this has a belief at its core not a hope but an intend which is like a thermostat which keeps you there no matter what and you always merely want to give your best and find the best way. Positive beliefs increase your potential which helps to take a better and more refined action every time which reinforces your belief that you can do it.

Pain and suffering

Don’t resist pain or you will end up becoming it and then spreading it.

Don’t change because of violence inflicted upon you particularly when you do not have a choice. If you repress and accumulate violence then it will again be used against you.

Identify the weight of depression or any other negative emotion being accumulated or affecting you as the sensation and then let go of resisting the sensation or feeling.

Suffering is part of life. It is because of life evolving that you suffer. Don’t resist because it means that you do not want suffering. It is a challenge which changes you that is life’s way of enhancing you and making you better. So suffering changes you for the better and teaches you that suffering and negativity is also part of life and that you have to become better at handling this aspect of life which is perfectly normal I order to become a complete human being. Suffering will hit you only till the time you resist instead of paying your complete attention and then letting it go.

All of this is moving you towards understanding that you have to stop letting yourself be a plaything of your lower state by being non resistant and dissolving this lower state letting your higher self emerge naturally and without resistance.

Now

Now in the past is the same now now. Now always remains the same. It is us who change because of division. Now is not limited but is always as it is because it has no duration in time. Now is not a moment in time and is the only now there is. It has no beginning and no end so therefore no conclusions. It does not move fast or slow to arrive but has always been and will not go anywhere. Now is still and it speaks. Thought cannot think of the now it can only think of objects. When thought thinks about the now it turns it into time. If you buy a book the entire book is present but the mind cannot read the book now, it needs time to do so. The book is always present now. It is not the books limitation but the limitation of thought which cannot access it now.

Our entire experience is now not in the past not in the future. Nothing started millions of years ago but started now. Filtered through thought eternity appears as time. Thought superimposes a limit upon time and makes it appear as time. So eternity cannot be thought. Think of eternity and end your mind in the process. Real thinkers don’t think. They know the conclusiveness of thought and its limited range in time. Follow a thought to its end and be free of time. That which is also always present is inherent in the now. Awareness is always of the now and hence is eternal. Thought objectifies consciousness. Dimensionless reality of pure consciousness appears as time in the form of the mind. Time is made of infinite consciousness in its attentive mind form when it rises as the mind to attend. All experience is here and will always be here. All experience is of the now which is same everywhere. The now and awareness are same.

Gossip the spiritual one

Don’t talk about spirituality or things written in Vedas or other scriptures. Don’t talk about god or spirit as an idle gossip because it will satisfy your longing in a shallow way. This tendency to gossip is identified with the mind and is shallow. This keeps you away from reality and satisfied only with gossip.

Be quiet and enhance your perception. Experience reality for what it is. Gossip lacks depth and reality requires sincere introspection, so gossip kills the very energy required to be in touch with reality.

Mind is confused which is a good thing until you use that confusion sincerely to gain clarity of reality. Confusion is a sign of functioning intelligence, that which is causing the confusion will dispel it. The purpose should not be to know everything because everything cannot be quantified but to be real and act and not merely to imagine and then gossip.

On the other side conclusion is also not required as it means death and finality which means no confusion at all. Now no one has been able to figure the nature of life in there mind. You can become life and know it but to figure it out in the mind is not possible. If you become life all your prejudices will vanish and you will know life but have not figured it out in your mind as an idea or thought, you are living it in all its intensity. Thought does not exist before life but it is because you are alive that you may think if you choose to or it might happen to you any ways if you are alive.
