Teaching and learning are about improving the “human imperfections” in (an identity you believe to be) “yourself.” Guidance and waking up are about revealing the (already always) “divine perfection” as Self! One is about more and better, the other is about less and what is. One is adding and augmentation, the other is editing and release. One builds skills, information, knowledge and wisdom, the other allows revelation, repose and abiding in what already is (known). One sharpens and exercises the mind, the other stills and channels it. One constructs an identity/personality, the other dissolves (integrates) it. One is about gaining things to ultimately have nothing, the other is about losing things to ultimately have everything.

Discerning these apart is the difference between adapting in a challenging and changing world, and liberation from the belief that it exists outside of Self. It’s the difference between being reactive to (perceiving, fighting, resisting, changing, improving) an outer reality, and realizing One-Self as a creative channel for its appearance. It’s the difference between becoming smarter or wiser, and waking up to and being who You are.

Any “event” that is perceived in the manifest is created by an exact match / resonance in frequencies. It’s therefore, impossible to be “in the wrong place at the wrong time,” or “in the right place in the right time.” We’re always in the *accurate* place and time — in perfect match with the frequency of our consciousness, no matter how “random” or lucky or cruel the events and situations seem. We’re never just dealt a hand; what comes into our hands is always an attuned match, without regard to a moral right or wrong, or a just fair or unfair. To believe otherwise is to believe in separation… that we are separate from “what happens to us.”  (more…)

The metaphor of crucifixion and resurrection points to the death (recognizing, embracing and integrating) of the ego so the eternal Self can be risen/awakened. It’s the death of death itself, for only the belief in death keeps death (the ego) alive.

As a fellow beacon of Light also recently suggested, the guru will teach you how to play the game of life (illusion/duality) better, i.e. more effectively, productively and comfortably, while the Satguru will finish off the game altogether, pointing past (and often catalyzing the breakdown and dissolution of) all the armor that veils and obstructs the Self/Now.

Of course this isn’t comfortable, as it is an annihilation of all that has come to be our strong-suit, including (and especially!) our concept of “spirituality”… it’s a death-before-death… and yet underneath all the armor is the Self — Love, Bliss and Peace. As such, the Satguru will neither focus on tools and practices, nor on rituals and consecrations as a means to getting anywhere… all of that is about playing the game of duality, of time and space, and of stories and symbols that anchor time and space. While these can be enjoyable expressions, conveyances and natural by-products of Truth already realized, they are never mistaken for either Truth itself, or the means to Truth. Truth always stands naked in the Now, when everything else is stripped away. Truth is simply to be seen. (more…)

What irony that we are using Facebook to complain about Facebook!! And, what a wonderful metaphor the Facebook experience is for the worldly experience. We sign up voluntarily for the experience, creating avatars to suit whatever experiment we wish to run with ourselves this “lifetime,” then voluntarily and collectively create all content (including countless pictures of kiddos technically unable to give their consent… and who asks animals anyway?)… Then, when every passing whim and thought gets stored in the (Akashic!) records and made visible / usable to all — indiscriminately and without measure of “good” or “evil” — we are mad at the Creator for not only allowing this, but also now watching silently, “not taking responsibility.” Exactly how we relate to the world of our collective creation!  (more…)

No “extrinsic factor” can ever change by working on it directly with muscle (and by that word I mean smarts, diligence, perseverance, and all other signifiers of effort). That’s because everything extrinsic is quite literally being formed into existence, moment-to-moment, by the lens of our consciousness. The only “effort” with true power is to allow a shift and integration within, in our way of seeing. (And action will arise spontaneously, without a view to change what’s extrinsic.) Now watch what happens outside!!

P.S. It’s also a lot, lot more fun, with no winning or losing, only surfing without the suffering!

*****
When there’s an impression of “change” in extrinsic situations via extrinsic effort, it is only the creation of a new “problem,” disguised as “solution” or “change”… and the cycle continues 🙂

A lens of hatred will see hatred where there is Love.
A lens of cynicism will see manipulations where there is expansion.
A lens of “healthy skepticism” will see platitudes where there is sincerity.
A lens of self-protection will see risk where there is possibility.
A lens of defensiveness will see offence where there is clarity.
A lens of doubt will see rejection where there is openness.
A lens of faith-less-ness will see betrayal where there is freedom.
A lens of lack will see loss where there is limitlessness.
A lens of victimhood will see blame where there is support.
A lens of mortality will see death where there is eternity.
A lens of rationality will see the usual where there is a miracle. 


And each lens will fool you into believing you’ve been intelligent.
