Focal Point -Focus Like A Laser Beam!

“Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.”

–Paulo Coelho The Alchemist

 

Practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. However I like to focus on progress and not perfection. How do we make progress in the art of concentration and learn to focus like a laser beam. I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from many masters the different techniques to bring the monkey mind under control. What is the monkey mind? The monkey mind is what most of us deal with on a daily basis. We find thoughts arising that have no beneficial outcome and in many cases are detrimental. Any person that is honest with themselves in taking a look at the thoughts arising will agree that many are not going to bring about enlightening creations into the world. With this in mind what are some techniques one might practice

Breathing. Now most if not all have encountered a guru instructing the student to come into the now or the Yoga instructor directing the viewer to breathe. The reason this is cliché is because it is one of the most effective methods for learning to focus like a laser beam. A common method is to count to 5 while breathing in through the nose. Hold the breath for a count of 5 and then breath out for the same count. The beneficial results of learning how to do this are so numerous I don’t know where to begin – so I won’t – give it a try or not. I believe with practice you will enjoy some great benefits.

Tis better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles on the field. No one can take it from you, not angels nor demons, not heaven or hell.     -Da Buddha

 

If you happen to give this a try, notice how the mind wanders. I need to do the laundry. I think I have to pee. I have to remember to put the garbage out. I cannot believe that car alarm is still going off. I wonder if I left the dog in the dryer. You will see how difficult it is to direct your mind only to breathing.  We need to think about what we are thinking about, and if it’s not beneficial than we should learn how to redirect our mind. Existential detectives and redirectors. If we are not in control of our thoughts then this is a serious problem. Stress, envy, jealousy, health problems and depression stem from the inability to focus on what brings peace, love and joy. Thought alone is the source of all sadness, depression and also happiness and peace. This is heaven or hell- you get to decide. The world is completly neutral.

The quality of your life is truly derived from the thoughts you think, change your thoughts, change your life. And so changing your thoughts- just like rebooting a computer is a concious decison that requires one to focus like a laser beam. Who is the instrument, the music and whom is playing it?  

To reiterate, consider taking 15 minutes first thing in the morning and the last thing at night to focus on your breathing. This helps train the mind. A undisciplined mind can accomplish nothing. A disciplined mind can accomplish anything.

A Universal Picture

You can never be lost.

When have you ever been apart from me?

You can never depart and never return.

For we are continuous, indistinguishable.you-are-hereAdmitting that I don’t know anything is what I call learning.Oscar Wilde observed that the Western mind, given a choice between going to Heaven and hearing a lecture about Heaven, would choose to hear the lecture about Heaven.

We are the center of our existence. If we think of up or down, we think in relation to our body. Past and future are related to now. First we thought we were flat, then round, and the center of everything, now we see that the earth, we are, merely a grain of sand hitchhiking onto a pebble in a infinite cosmic sea of stardust. This fact, does not altogether allow us to become comfortable numb. In fact the mind expansion that this allows is phenomenal. In this age, at this time, this place, you and I are the freest people who have ever roamed the Multiverse. All that “time” and now this. We come to know that we are not the center of anything, that in fact we are merely an Quixotic figment of our own creativeness. A false concept appearing real, a fast cloud, a runners shadow, the spray of a squirt bottle. Eventually all body’s drop. Can you imagine how all these freaks are going to feel looking back at their insanity. I can! I’m one of “them”. Think of all of the Generals who have slaughtered thousands in the mud packed war fields, spilled the blood of comrades and friends – all for a little piece of dirt, on a pebble, in a galaxy filled with pebbles, in a Multi-verse filled with stardust. No, not many will look back from their deathbed and say, I wish I would have spent more time on the battlefield. aaeaaqaaaaaaaap2aaaajgrly2zkmwu0ltu5n2etngyxms05mdjmlte3odiyntqxnmq5nw

Yet what is not love is murder. Without extending love to every being we effectively kill them off in our mind, discarding them as wrong sex, wrong race, unsuccessful, different or beneath us. In this way we must all endeavor to pick up the pace regarding learning to be inclusive rather than exclusive. To extend love, to join with another, to experience together. The only thing we get to keep in this life is what we give away. Live by the sword die by the sword or rather Live by giving love and it all comes back to you. I once saw a bumper sticker which read “Life’s a bitch and then you die”, a few years later I saw one that read, “Life is a joy and then you ascend”. I think we all must choose on or the other. It’s not really much of a choice, is it.

You can never be lost.

When have you ever been apart from me?

You can never depart and never return.

Tired of Being You?

What would be the point of evolution, but to evolve! The greatest ability that you possess, is the ability to change your mind. How would you respond if I were to say that you could swap your silly little mind for the mind of God?

Most if not all have become familiar with the fact that an atom is 99.99999 percent energy and .00001 percent physical substance. The we can extrapolate from that fact the we ourselves are more nothing than something. Why is it that we focus all of our attention on that tiny percentage of the physical world. We define ourselves through perception- what we can see, feel, touch, taste and hear. These are our biggest limitations, to identify ourselves with the false mind made self. Let’s look at blowing off the chains that bind us, the chains that keep us limited to the sensory field.

Beyond all concepts of right and wrong there is a field. I will meet you there.  – Rumi

What creates your reality? 

Two men, after being stranded in the desert, walk into a town. One is hungry and so all he sees are the restaurants. The other man is horny, all he sees are the pretty girls.

If a pickpocket meets a saint, all he sees are his pockets.

Therefore, first our desire and then thoughts create our reality. We each hardware our brain to continually create more of the same and familiar of what we perceive as valuable. This is all fine and dandy but practically speaking, how does one change his thoughts? How can you rewrite the software of your mind permanently and get a different result.

Repetition is the Mother of all learning

If nothing changes, nothing changes. If we always do what we’ve always done, we always get what we’ve always got. We think the same 60,00 thoughts everyday, over and over. And they have now become a grove in a broken record.

How can you teach someone to value what he has thrown away. He threw it away because he did not value it. You can only hope to show him how miserable he is without it. To show him how to return to “correct” thinking by reward.  If our belief/desire thoughts (what we think is valuable) create our reality, then it is with our desire thoughts alone that we must work.screen-shot-2016-09-18-at-5-11-37-pm

Try to learn to play the Piano at 40, or learn a new language. It might be necessarily uncomfortable at first. Why? Because it’s out of the ordinary order, that means out of our conditioned thinking. We do this over and over until it becomes habit and we then break through.

1. Drop the personal opinion. If you have one-lose it, forget it. It’s all based on the past and will not be apart of the new perception you will come to know. This is another way of saying “do not judge”. Your judgement is based on false learning and is the past.

2. Meditation. The act of of silencing the mind and shutting off sensory perception. Take a few minutes several times a day to enjoy this. Through meditation we will rewire the neural pathways of our mind.

3. Nothing that you think, see or hear means anything. Why? Because YOU have given everything all the meaning that it has for you. The thoughts you think don’t mean anything. They are neither good nor bad, they are meaningless.

To swap you mind for the mind of God, first you must erase everything that you have taught yourself. At this point the Universe will rush in and write it’s own meaning!

Freedom, Love and Forgiveness

Just do it, there’s nothing to it. The most natural thing in the Omniverse cannot be complicated.

Definition of terms:

Freedom: the absence  of concepts. Concepts or mental constructs in which we see the world. Paradigms or veils that filter reality. The lack of mental modification. The end of suffering.

Love: that which flows from within when there is a lack of mental constructs. The all encompassing. The natural essence of all life.

Forgiveness: that which gives be-fore. A decision made before an event apparently takes place. A state of mind. An awareness of All and Always in all ways, which leads to peace.

Lay down the troubled mind. Love is still Lord of All. Turn the world around, for it is backward and upside down.

Use the mind to overcome the mind. The mind is time. Time can be wasted as well as waste. As long as the mind believes in time, use it to reach a goal as high as learning can achieve. Freedom, Love and Forgiveness.

Do not seek to change the world. Seek to change your mind about the world and All the world changes with it. Hold the thought of freedom, love and forgiveness. The mind becomes what it holds within it.There are no individual personal problems. If one is willing to look at his problems he will see that he has none. What is trying to solve the problem, is the problem. The problem solver is actually the problem maker.

If I come to you and say “I have a problem”, you might ask “what is it”. At that point I must manifest a problem, that is, go into my mind and formulate a problem. Otherwise I have none.This is the prime goal of the ego. To keep you embedded in problem solving. The oldest trick in the proverbial book, look, look over here, but don’t look and find you are free.

On the other side of the coin. There will always be events and circumstances that one will attend to. Not making them into a problem is the trick. Once it is understood that life seems to be one damn thing after another, and that the “to do” list never gets shorter one may take pleasure in the events in whatever form they come in.


I wrote myself a little song I’ll share with myself.

Time, it’s all in my mind

Unwind, look and you’ll find

See, eternity

Friend, be like the wind

And fly, don’t ask why

Reverse Freudian Slip with a Half Wit

I meant half twist…….

Did Jesus suffer on the cross? No no..remember, he looked down and said “Peter come up here”. Peter said “how?”. Jesus said “get a ladder”.  Peter timidly climbed up most of the way. Jesus said “come on all the way” then he nodded to off in the distance and said “look, I can see your a mouse from up here. I mean I can see your house from up here”.

images

Yes, I Am….a halfwit. I mean as long as we’re playing these personality parts we all are. If the point of evolution is to evolve…. to whole wit, then let’s be about it. Or not… Let’s just have fun!

When on your way to meet people I invite you to meet them first in your mind. In this semi- imaginary meeting wish them success, Love and Joy. Speak to them all well wishing thoughts and send a little laser beam of peace from your mind to theirs. Careful now with the laser, don’t want to blind them (Saul). Then do a little jig right in front of them. Anything goes in the theatre of the mind. While your at it use that laser to look into the wallet or purse, see what they have hidden in there.

I find that this technique helps prevent any outburst toward these people one is about to converse with. Such as “freakin bore” or “do you ever stink about anyone but your miserable self”. How much longer will you and I have to endure the mass of hateful humans just wallering in puddles of their own selfish piss.

I stated all of that to come to this. This world, this place is a case of mistaken identity. At the very least one might ask “is there another way of looking at the world”. There are an infinite number of ways of looking at the world. Here comes one now.

 Everyone that came here did so to experience autonomous individuality personally. One might point to the idea of an Avatar. This is all fine. That is until the game gets boring and dull -or sharp and painfull. If it’s neither one for you then shoo, go have fun.

So what about it? There are techniques available that do not include: addiction to a substance, addiction to another avatar, money, food, substance, gambling or sex. Which all will eventually further the pain. Well maybe not sex.

What are one of these techniques? Everything that you see is completely in your mind. In fact, you could not possibly see it if it was not. Therefore see everything that appears to be outside of you as completely perfect. Yes, starvation murder, as well as sunsets. Remember this entire thing is a simulation and you are the avatar. We just have to come to the realization of this. By seeing everything as perfectly orchestrated one can come to see himself the same. As within, so without!  Takes practice.

Second idea outlined at the top of this article is one of attack. Where I mentioned meeting people. If we look at what happens when this occurs well See that it’s merely a meeting of false faces. This is the avatar I’m playing in this Sim and what part are you playing. So what about it? Instead of saying “oh, what a bore you are” remind your false self as well as the person in front of you of what a fantastic play this all is. The Omniverse wills all earthlings peace. If you are against another then you are against the All and Always. The idea that we have all popped into this timeframe together in the here and now. It’s a true miracle -when realized.

What was your face before you were born? Look at everything from the source and before the avatar that you are. Don’t just play the part in thinking that’s all you are. It’s really just a movie and you are the screen AND the projector.

 If one wants to be organic about it we can look at it this way. The double helix of the DNA in ones body emits a electrical signal. This signal is projecting all of this before him. We have peopled the entire world with the movie of the past. Within the DNA is all that we call ” intelligence” in this world, which has nothing to do with true knowledge. It’s merely a carry forward of past learning projected in the memory of our genetic code. In effect were merely reliving an ancient past over and over.

To undo all of the concepts we have about the world and the way things should be. Let each thought come to your awareness and then look at it. Why do I believe this. Of what purpose does it serve.

I was watching a mother and a child interact recently. The child wanted to get out of the car and play in a field. The mother did not want this to occur for the reason that the child did not have his coat. The child said “but mom, I just want to be happy, I don’t want to be sad”.  

That’s IT. That should be our last thought ” I just want to be happy”. If man all of the sudden found himself in the Garden of Eden he would fowl it up by the end of the day. However if he corrected his thinking he would find himself there. Desire – that’s a problem or TAP.

Look for the concepts that do not serve happiness and let them go. Struggle is completely overrated!

Oh, I meant to ask you; what has been the peak experience of your life. Have you ever felt like the world couldn’t touch you. So high that nothing could disturb you in that moment. Relive that moment over and over in the now.

It’s better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours, no one can take it from you, not by Angels nor by Demons, Heaven nor Hell. – Buddha  

Q: what in the hell does that mean?

A: This battle may be referred to as the battle of self concept verses Self. We have all built a concept of ourselves. it’s as if we were out in space and fabricated a self out of nothing and nothing can be made from nothing. its as if we designed a small holographic software package called “me” on our laptop and then plugged it into a world. This must be realized in order that the true Self may be known. This has been stated in many Spiritual text as parting the veil, Kundalini awakening, Crown Chokra opening, Enlightenment, Self – Realization and many more. These terms have been muddied over time and all but lost thier meaning. Truth remains as always changeless

Q: So how do we get back home?

  
 A: Good question. I laid on a beautiful Island the other day. I was in Oregon at a beautiful stream running through the coastal mountains. The water was whispering, the trees reflecting off the water, big deep pools among the soft Rapids. I noticed a little island in the stream. It was made of little smooth stones from the stream and the Sun was shining and heating them. I thought I’ll just lay on them and give myself a hot rock massage and talk with Jesus for a while. I proceeded to give a full dissertation on all of the reasons I was worthy and ready to come home. It’s ok here but I’m ready. I’ve been a good good boy, lately at least. just look at my score on the Video Game. Look at those points I racked up. Just beam me on up there and we can hang together, listen to some music, go swimming- I painted a wonderful picture. No response, but I could tell he was smiling. On I went about how I had done everything a Earthling could do here, just beam me on up. No response. Well at least talk to me, I said. Finally he spoke up barely able to hold back his laughter. He said, I can’t beam you up to a place you already are! I thought, Oh man not that again, I was really making progress, just keep that to yourself (just kidding). I asked, you mean I’m on the wrong road? It’s worse than that he replied, there are no roads. But as long as you think there are, turn around and go the other way. Oh, I’ve been going the wrong way, but this is a one way street, I said. He told me to go one block over and head the other way. There was some good news He informed me, one block over was a stream and all I had to do was put my raft in the water and float on back.    

Q: float on back huh? What about the Rapids on the river or the Snakes or Crocadiles? What will we eat or wear. Can I take my Cell Phone?

A: Well I’ve been eating the Crocks and the Snakes and this is a neked raft trip. Once you totally accept the idea of returning, all obstacles will be removed and your path will be made straight. Another thing is that the current always goes toward home on this River. I’ve seen many bodies struggling and paddling upstream against the current. They sure look worn out and tired. I just sat here under The Bodie tree for a minute, it’s time to go. Come on, the waters warm, it’s always Summertime here and everyone’s waiting for us. You can even fish on the way. Where the River meets the Ocean and the Ocean meets the sky, you will find me there.
  

I am not this or that but all of it!

  The Who-man Earthling Conscousness cannot tell truth from falsity, Heaven from Hell, pleasure from pain, advances from retreats- without aid. Why? Because he is locked in a circle of his own thoughts. Become the watcher of your thoughts, see the same ones come round and round. They whisper ” this is what you are”. What’s the solution? Exchange your thoughts or mind for another. If there is any regret or Psychological pain whatsoever, then we may say that a glitch in the software or too many fragmented unproductive files exist. What would occur if a re-boot, with a newer faster version of software were installed? Change your thoughts, change everything. One might even pop up in Thialand as a Goat Whisperer or Botanist or anything one might imagine. In this respect we are only our thoughts- sure. Everything finally is only your thought about it and you are the sum total of your thoughts.

  
     I hear arguments about the number of dimensions that exist. Look right at it, every human lives in his own dimension, his version of reality. He builds this place until maturity then spends the rest of the time defending his construct. Have you seen those little crabs that build their nest on the Ocean floor? Ok, let’s move on, I’m not attempting to berate you, I’m including myself. I’m just swimming alongside of you following the current making observations of the Psychedelic experience we both are having- fantastic is it not.

     More than that, a reconstruction or metamorphosis can occur in this lifetime- reincarnation- ha, we are constantly doing it, each moment. Within the limits of our need to always define ourselves we continually re- make ourselves as we remember ourselves- from our own Karma memory. I say you can change that at any time. Within your own mind exist everyone you have ever met, how can it not. We ARE everyone we have ever met. Wow- look right at it! In that respect we are the creator of our world- this world. This is why Theatre- stage play, acting is so wounderous. All the world is a stage you see and we must play a part.

  
      Who would you like to be? A sailer of the Seven Seas perhaps. A Homocide Detective, a Samaria Warrior maybe, a Movie Producer or Artist or Philosopher. It’s just a part. We say “Im not sure I can play that part”. How could this be, we wrote the play. We are the casting director and the Hero of our own dream. To be or not to be is not a choice- here we all are!

Understand that whatever part you play is not ultimately you. Well who the hell am I then? Say: I am before time was. How’s that feel?  See that all of the characters on the stage with you are the same-  before time was.  

  
     So how does this occur? All that exist is latent potential. What arises from that is manifest expression. Totally free and unlimited. Ideas such as good and bad, right and wrong, pleasure and pain are only that- judgements. If there is any evil it would have to be you. Why? Because there is Nothing “out there”. An Avatar are you. It is all you and you are all it! A thought never leaves it’s source. 

“We are One appearing as many”

“As Quantum Mechanics has shown us- not only can the observer not remain separate from the observed- they are One”

    Who therefore would be “The Holy Spirit” but you at the end of time. Then also you are the Jesus character. This is your play, your death of the ego and your/my resurrection- if we so chose for it to be.

Have you seen enough?

All the World returns to the Poetry it never left.     -Al

Art, Science, Mind, Poetry, Music- but I cannot grasp it, I cannot eat it. Oh yes my Love, for it is All what I do for a living, it is the very sustenance of life, it is the Bread of life. The Liver is a great occupation.

   

    You and I have fought many battles together. We have been the Victor and the Conquered, the Flag Bearer and the King. We have blown our Trumpets as We charged with no fear knowing we travel but in dreams. How real they seem to be. I invite you my Mighty Warrior to join me in our return from the Journey without distance to the place we never left. We have tasted the fruit of the Earth, now let us drink the Wine of the Spirit. We danced under the stars and laughed and twirled, let’s continue on now. They all are waiting to celebrate our victorious return from nowhere to Home. 

     There now is a fork in the road, a decision to be made. If we go straight as we did before, we will come here again. No, we must go left or right. One can go away from home but surely he will not reach it. Have you seen enough?

I hear your voice on the wind

And I hear you call out my name

“Listen, my child,” you say to me

“I am the voice of your history

Be not afraid, come follow me

Answer my call, and I’ll set you free”

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain

I am the voice of your hunger and pain

I am the voice that always is calling you

I am the voice, I will remain

I am the voice in the fields when the summer’s gone

The dance of the leaves when the autumn winds blow

Ne’er do I sleep thoughout all the cold winter long

I am the force that in springtime will grow

I am the voice of the past that will always be

Filled with my sorrow and blood in my fields

I am the voice of the future, bring me your peace

Bring me your peace, and my wounds, they will heal

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain

I am the voice of your hunger and pain

I am the voice that always is calling you

I am the voice

I am the voice of the past that will always be

I am the voice of your hunger and pain

I am the voice of the future

I am the voice, I am the voice

I am the voice, I am the voice

– Celtic Woman

I Am calling you out of the world. It is death by astonishment.

TWO DREAMS

The blind man with his cane, the homeless man digging through a dumpster, alcoholics sleeping in the ditch, the elderly and feeble, the abandoned, the prisoner incarcerated for a crime he did not commit, a child born into disease, the lover who has been cheated on, patients in mental institutions, the ones caring for these individuals. Here in the world the eternal come to die, the everything to be nothing, the all encompassing to be locked in a cell. Can the limitless be limited? 

 Stay with me here, this is not a depressing tale of sorrow, we have enough of                           that here, just a little contrast, then we will flip the switch.

Forgiveness and Love fall like raindrops from Heaven on a dry and dusty world                                 where thirsty and starving creatures come to die.”

The Play has been good
The Play has been good

6 Listen-perhaps you catch a hint of an ancient state not quite forgotten; dim, perhaps, and yet not altogether unfamiliar, like a song whose name is long forgotten; and the circumstances in which you heard completely unremembered. Not the whole song has stayed with you, but just a little wisp of melody, attached not to a person or a place or anything particular. But you remember, from just this little part, how lovely was the song, how wonderful the setting where you heard it, and how you loved those who were there and listened with you.

7 The notes are nothing. Yet you have kept them with you, not for themselves, but as a soft reminder of what would make you weep if you remembered how dear it was to you. You could remember, yet you are afraid, believing you would lose the world you learned since then. And yet you know that nothing in the world you learned is half so dear as this. Listen, and see if you remember an ancient song you knew so long ago and held more dear than any melody you taught yourself to cherish since.

8 Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past everything you see and yet somehow familiar, is an arc of golden light that stretches as you look into a great and shining circle. And all the circle fills with light before your eyes. The edges of the circle disappear, and what is in it is no longer contained at all. The light expands and covers everything, extending to infinity forever shining and with no break or limit anywhere. Within it everything is joined in perfect continuity. Nor is it possible to imagine that anything could be outside, for there is nowhere that this light is not.   -ACIM

IMG_0688

     These are two pictures, two different worlds and both are in your mind for you can only see yourself. If your thoughts are with the first you will see a hateful fearful world. If your thoughts are in line with the second you will see a great and shining circle where all the world is fresh and new, a new Heaven and a new Earth. It is a choice, your choice. We have all built our own concept of what the world represents. Now we spend our time defending that position. Wars are fought and illusionary battles are won and seemingly lost. You cannot lose but you will not recognize this until you try and lose. To be or not to be. 

You and I have fought many battles together . We have been the Victor and the Conquered, the Flag Bearer, and the King. We blew our Trumpets as we charged with no fear into battle. We travel but in dreams my Love. How real they seem to be. I invite you home my courageous Brother. There is a fork in the road now, we have been here before. There is only one road leading home and going in the opposite direction will not lead there. Here a decision must be made. If we go straight, the way we went before, we will be here again.Butch

     The question is simple, have you seen enough. I Am the Christian, the Hindu, the Muslim and the Jew. The Beggar, The giver, the imprisoned and the Free. Which parts have you played? I am a builder and an interpreter now. I have built a ladder which we can climb out of the Double Helix. Are you coming?

The journey back to Zero – Everything

  
A: Let’s go to the other side.

Q: The other side of what?

A: instead of looking from this side of time toward eternity, we are going to start in Eternity and look to here where we think we are now. So imagine in your mind that you exist before time and are about to be rocketed into a Worm Hole that will spit you out into this dimension. Only this time you will maintain and bring with you the memory of being before time. So Kaboom- down the Worm Hole you go. The next thing you experience is getting slapped on the ass while someone holds you upside down. Here we all are now. As you open your eyes and get comfortable with these perceptual stimulus inputs, learn to walk and so forth, there is a irregularity that the Parents notice. You don’t say “I hungry” or “mine”. Later in life when asked how old you are you say ” I am before time was”. When asked your name you say ” call me Energy”. This child never allows the world or himself to build a self- concept. 

  
I ask this question: could this child suffer? 

Q: could this child experience pleasure?

A: what else would this child be in but a state of Eternal bliss.

Q: why does a baby cry?

A: I suppose to exercise its lungs and grow strong as well as being in some physical discomfort with gas or rash but that’s physical and not Psychological. And above all because it finds itself in a prison of a body which is nothing but a limit as seen from the perspective of total freedom in Nirvana. 

I Hungry, she took my toy, I don’t want to go to bed/school. I can’t do that, she has one and I don’t. Without the sense of I there could be no suffering is my point. 

Q: but I already constructed a me, so what now?

A: Deconstruction back to the Everything that you are before you squashed yourself into a body or a limited framework. 

  
As we and most children grow up everything is based and built on the I. We might ask a question of another and get a response and then the defense begins. We say “Well I agree with you but”. It’s all based on the past construction of “I”. Think  about thinking with no discretion, not from the “I”. If there is no “I” then there could not be anything whatsoever to defend against or fear. Look at all the chaos in the world where every seeming entity is trying to substantiate thier position. They say ” I am real, I have an opinion, I will not stand for this, I will kill you for what I believe”.  The whole idea that we are all separate is the problem. There is a chicken, it’s separate from me, I think I’ll eat it. These people don’t agree with us- let’s nuke em. They have oil we do not, let’s take it. 

Q: well don’t we all need things?

A: yes but look at the excess, how much does one person need. Time becomes a consideration now. The make believe mind made self says: I might run out- there exist scarcity in the world, I have to get mine before I die. If one of us could die then all of us would die, there is no death, so there is no scarcity. The Human bases his entire reality on ultimately terminating due to the construction of the concept of time. We can’t say what God is or what truth is because we are that. We are the love. A Book cannot read its own pages, a mind cannot study itself. It’s a dog chasing it’s tail. Can we use the mind to overcome the mind? If one looks for long enough he will come to the conclusion that this entire Multi-verse is made up of thought constructs. One possibility I like is the construction of a paradigm whereby I build a construct to walk right out of this dimension into MY own paradise. This might not be a novel idea but it is to my mind. I suppose  the whole time machine idea comes from this, but in mine the mind is the machine. If it is true that as within so without then by the fact that we see wormholes in space they must exist in our mind. Can we travel through time by the ability to utilize these internal devices. The Kingdom of Heaven is within. 

If I disappear then you will know where I am. Until then here is a method- be a Methodist for a day.

In short: judge nothing and it is ALL Beautiful. Make a decision now, not to decide. Beyond that, be the watcher of your thoughts. Watch all of the thoughts arise, the parade is always going on, the River is always flowing. Now take one more giant step back and observe the observer. Watch yourself watching your thoughts. Who is the one to which the thoughts arise?

I was out in the nighttime Forest dancing,

It occurred to me that this is what I do for a living. 

Dancing is the food of life. 

Living is a state of mind. 

One paints, sings, plays his music

Give the Spirit the gift of belief,

He will use it to manifest Himself in the givers mind.
