Pain is from accumulated resistance to the energetic flow of (as!) Life (as a survivalist response), and suffering is from accumulated resistance to pain in the form of story and narrative. The currency of the first is emotions and the currency of the second is thoughts; they do, however, arise in tandem. Both emotions and thoughts can be allowed in full (to fully arise and pass), in the Realization of being Life itSelf, with nothing to resist, overcome or survive against! As Realization is abiding, suffering ceases, and subsequently so does pain… but this cessation is never the goal, only the natural by-product of Awakening.

Although there is constant reference to freedom from suffering related to Awakening (or Self Realization or Enlightenment), the goal of not suffering, or to feel or function better, or “get happy” is never what Awakening is about. If there’s a value proposition, you can be sure it’s not about Awakening 😊 Rather, everything else that is popularly valued and engaged in is about either distracting or training the mind to feel and function better, while Awakening is simply seeing what is, seeing what’s absolutely eternally true. It’s Reality realizing itSelf (through/as what appears to be “you”).

Actually, it is by completely surrendering, allowing and embracing the suffering and pain, that Awakening, and subsequently, total Realization, spontaneously dawned (upon “me”). And in so allowing, I saw how generating narratives and telling the hi/story — with an agenda to change the world or “never let it happen again” or get relief or comfort or be heard or be seen or be healed — is one of the most entrenched ways in which we avoid and reject and rationalize the suffering and disallow its total embrace and dissolution. (Telling the story without a charge or agenda but for the sake of storytelling alone, allowing anyone to receive from it what they will, is different… and is simply part of authentic expression.)

Much as we have made it cool, and keep telling ourselves how research shows alcohol is beneficial for us in this way or that way, with evidence from this culture and that culture… A state of altered consciousness already binds and blinds us. Every drop of alcohol alters that altered state exponentially. So when we believe it is possible to consume alcohol and still be aligned in Self, and when we believe we can “enjoy” or “relax” with a glass of something, and when we believe we can discuss/ connect over a drink to get clarity on something or truly connect with one-another… hehe. Delusion after delusion; delusion within delusion.  (more…)

The phenomenon of toxic masculinity and (its victim) feminine (and trans-gender/sexual) vulnerability arises in the same way every old ‘evil’ does — via perceived separation, and of mind-identification with a particular “me.” A “me” that can then have power over, or lose power to, an “other.”

A gross manifestation of the separation as “you” and “me” is via the concept of gender, via our identification with gender as it manifests in the mind-body complex and thought-forms of inherited narratives. Instead of realizing the unique way gender-expression manifests in every single one of us as a garb/vehicle, just like the unique physical body or personality, we have taken it to be who we are, and projected a ‘reality’ accordingly.

If you are concerned about climate change (and are reasonably affluent and otherwise abled), consider these possibilities best you can, before laughing at “those unscientific fools” or talking about systemic change:

— Live in square footage no greater than you truly require
— Use your two pretty feet to get around most places, most of the time
— Buy local, unpackaged groceries that you can personally carry (and no more) in reusable bags  (more…)

Forgiveness, as an act or effort done unto another, is unnecessary the moment there is the realization: I am all there is. Once “the other” is wholly recognized as I (in the form of a reflection/ aspect/ opposite of “me”), the question of needing to forgive doesn’t arise. The reflection/ aspect/ opposite is embraced and dissolved in the space of I, and there is no other left to forgive, and no “me” left to act as forgiver. Forgiveness just happens. Rather, gratitude happens. Grace happens. (Nothing happens.)

The Self is always at rest, always at peace. It is Peace. The “person” we perceived, who is now no longer in our perception (i.e. in character), never exists separate from that. When we experience someone passing on, it is akin to their exiting (front)stage, because (in consciousness) we co-create that script in this particular play. It doesn’t mean their true existence is over (or even altered!) with the end of their role in this play; it only means we agree to stop perceiving them in the form that they played. (We even agree to perceive their “aging.”) They were never that character, they were unborn and undying, and what exists is eternally at rest in peace!!  (more…)
