Why Lazarus Laughed - Freedom

"All the actions that the body is to perform are already decided upon at the time it comes into existence: the only freedom you have is whether or not to identify yourself with the body." That means that in playing our part in the comedy in which we are given a role and which we call our life, we can identify ourselves with our role, really imagine we are the character whose part we are playing, or stand apart mentally and play it by sheer technique.

All the actions the body is to perform are already decided upon at the time it comes into existence..." The mind has a certain freedom, but not to decide the actions of the body. Its most valuable freedom is the liberty to understand and thereby to rid itself of its identifications and particularly of its illusion of individuality. When it has understood as much as that, it is at the disposition of Mind Itself and may awaken to Reality at any moment.

Mooji - Personality, What is That?

"Personality" = habitual output, not an actual construct. Enlightenment has no personality. Our true nature - Infinite consciousness - is awareness of infinite potential. Personality ceases to exist.

Here Now

This excerpt was taken from our good friend Chris Wilshaw over at Tao Wow

We are never not Here Now. We are absolutely always from birth, through every action, to death, Here Now.

We are never in the past or the future, they are unreal, just ideas, but our minds insist in wandering off into the unreal.

We choose to avoid reality, this here now and go off to a side step, a distraction, thinking a thought that takes a past or future idea, plays with it; a false thought based on a false notion - and choose to deliberately avoid the very thing we seek.

And the seeking itself is like stepping forward to achieve standing still, an impossible method.

Crazy as it seems we are the barrier to finding ourself. There is no one who can be awakened, no one to be enlightened. When "One" is found then by definition there is no other, especially no you. No seeker.

A method to finding now is to look out from your solar plexus or heart. Don't use eyes or ears as they are filtered by the mini mind that is trained and has the nature to form time and analyse. It does this as it is too weak to comprehend the "Now", the "One" so it splits, measures, analyses and gets lost in its own fallacies.

"The eyes do not look, they absorb. The mind is responsible for looking; its failure here is the splitting of one of the sensory inputs into values, good and bad. These only exist due to the mind itself – here is the illusion."

instead ...

"Your empty mind,
is your full life;
The impenetrable solid reality,
is the ungraspable mind."

Our mind is useless, our language contaminated with rules that split the mind. Drop it all and then you are left with "Aaaaaaaa!" Here Now! it was there all along, Bliss!

Osho - Being In Love

In this video Osho discusses selfishness, an oft-condemned word, as a necessary pre-requisite to true love. You say love thy neighbor, but you don't even know how to love yourself, so how can you love your neighbor? When you love yourself you will find all the altruism you seek.

Mooji - I Am Life

I really like Mooji and his simplistic delivery. Too bad he is always ending every sentence with "hmm?" "emm?" He sounds like someone who has gotten too used to one-sided conversations. But that's okay, I forgive you Mooji, rock on.

Meditation and Wisdom

This excerpt is from the excellent Tao Wow blog

A master does not have to meditate, there is nothing to do. By contrast someone with much baggage has to learn to meditate first before finding any benefit. They must progress and with time get better at it, work through tough issues, battle on. It is tough for someone with a whole world seemingly against them; commitments, habits, plus a past that they took no part in forming, even ingrained habits in the way thoughts are processed. It seems this mind must be opened then worked with. Further still there are barriers in the way people have learned to learn. There is so much to do.

Yet the master does nothing, and the best advice is to do nothing.

What happens is that when someone has that first realisation that something is wrong and needs to be made right that they find a master. This does not mean to find a guru. A master or teacher comes in many forms and you will have many on your path. (The trap of taking one guru, one path, is a hindrance.) Masters can be lakes, books, children, pets, forests, exercises, breathing techniques. Wisdom is everywhere. Something said one day that seems meaningless, something overheard in a passing conversation, a line in a book, can pop back to mind with great relevance in the future. Past actions can come back to haunt - this is all good. Nothing bad is happening, has or will. It all makes sense.

Don't hold onto bad memories, don't hold on to ideas. The more you learn the less you need.

Life can be plotted like a graph. You life may seem like a distorted sound wave when seen as a graph, with no pattern only random ups and downs. The aim is a slow, smooth, sine wave. Waking through sleeping follows a sine wave, you will know how smooth or haphazard. Eating and work habits follow waves too, but all these waves interfere, the waves collide and the resulting interference pattern is your life, your wave.

Meditation smooths the wave, it brings waves into sync.

From entering the path from seeing something in life is not right you go about soothing your wave. Ultimately you can smooth your life wave on the grand scale of rebirth; you can be born very infrequently, very smoothly, very controlled. For now you may aim at smoothing your Samsara Nirvana wave - how often you are in illusion, how often truth. Until then you have many more waves to pull into line.

So the master would just sit still and the wave would settle. The unlearned will try to locate things that ripple the wave, that cause distortion and unbearable ups and downs.

To get from a false living to a true being there is a journey. A wonderful one. You will learn many truths that become false. Say you learn about Chakras and they give you great benefit in finding imbalance in your life. Then in the future you learn that Chakras are not even real and only apparent when they reveal themselves due to imbalance - This is not a bad thing, it is part of the journey. In finding stillness you will have to learn many nearly truths to help you over the false. Then it becomes easier as your knowledge of truth becomes more penetrating. Many nearly truths reveal themselves at just the right times, they help soften the fall from a false, but they must all be dropped in the end, there can be no crutch when all is one. No guru, god, method, style, ..

The hardest part of the journey is the begining as it is a journey - the end is a shock as you realize it was not.

Mooji - Forget About Enlightenment

"My challenge to you is: what if you didn't have anything to do about anything? Nothing at all! ... Staying as Awareness, I tell you this is a trap! ... Sometimes we overuse intellectual faculties... There is no accuracy in the Self..."

Eckhart Tolle - Quite Ordinary

Eckhart Tolle talks about releasing the ego through embracing the Now. I particularly enjoy the end where he talks about simply accepting and saying yes even to unhappiness. I've been doing this for a while, if feeling sad or depressed or otherwise unhappy just sit and completely accept, completely say yes to the current "negative" emotion and watch what happens. Ok, I'm sad now. Ok so I'm frustrated right now. Ok, I feel lonely now. What happens when you do that is you stop the egoic story, my story, the need to continue the mental drama associated with this feeling of discomfort. Then there is a spaciousness around the emotion, a lightness of being which subtly changes the feeling from "negative" to interesting, a change of pace, oh this is an emotion I haven't felt for a while, let's be with it, and watch/feel/experience it evolve into something new and creative.
