Consciousness flows through unique “portals” to express itSelf… and yet, if the unique portal becomes an identity, then it’s no longer a stream of Consciousness. It is a manufactured (illusory) entity in separation, and thereby, suffering. For now there is an “it,” introducing resistance to the flow, cutting “it-self” off from the power of Self, Source, Life… Love.

Waking up to, and abiding in Oneness requires discerning the difference between “a unique portal of Consciousness” — which is the unique way in which Consciousness flows through to blossom, and “a unique view of the world” — which is a vantage point for viewing and evaluating an outer reality, generating a separate perspective. Abiding in Oneness requires discerning between uniqueness and separateness. Between unique expression (of the in-to-the-out, so to speak) and separate perspective (an evaluation of the out).  (more…)

When we’re looking to have justice as a construct in the outer reality, then we need to correct an offending person/ality, an identity separate from The One, an entity that is, to begin with, an illusion. So we are educating or correcting or punishing an entity that is an illusion, managing how “it” acts out in the play. (We’re severing the forgetful/asleep arm that is striking the One body, and in doing so, acting verily as the other forgetful/asleep arm!)

In waking up into Awareness/Oneness/Love, we realize that the moment there is remembering/awakening in this “person” that they are All that is, all of Life itSelf and not merely a little locus of attention, then acting contrary to Life is impossible. Now, we wouldn’t be fixing the identity but releasing it altogether.

We would release Self from the prison of identity, rather than put identity in prison! (more…)

While there are many thoughtful academic and journalistic works on what defines and creates a culture of oppression, patriarchy and rape, I offer here subtle energy realizations through awakening and embodied living. These aren’t offered for analysis and dis/agreement, but for checking by direct seeing. If you are able, do set aside intellectual and philosophical arguments, and simply look. Look and see, and you’ll know what is meant when it is said that the world doesn’t exist outside of us. Or, that it is manifested as a reflection / projection of our identity of separateness and the conditioning it carries!

(Also, it would be easy to read this and think I am advocating some brand of puritanism or offering a critique and shaming of sex, materialism and consumerism. Quite the contrary, I am speaking of a total and unconditional (loving!) allowing of all the conditioning so that it can be wholly seen, accepted, embraced and integrated… dissolved. And I am speaking of the realization that until it is integrated — brought into integrity as whole — it continues to project the “reality” we collectively experience… no matter who it is that “personally” acts out the “worst.”)

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.

The mind will often say, “But… we live in the world!! How to live in the world and just be (in Self)?”

Well, we don’t live in the world; the world lives in us! The manifest world is a projection of our consciousness that we perceive in a feedback loop with the limited (contracted) five senses of the actor/avatar (also projected) in it. As such, the world of our five-sense perception is not only a tiny, limited story, but also doesn’t exist outside of our consciousness and its moment-by-moment image-making. It would be the equivalent of playing the actor in a film and while watching it, saying fretfully, gosh, but how do I live in that film? You don’t; you simply (and wholly!) act in it, all the while powerfully knowing who you truly are, that you are ALL of infinite Life itself… not the person/ality in it, even if you did a great job of “cultivating” it, playing it and winning awards for it!!  (more…)

All virtue is the construct of mind. The Self (or, the field of divinity, of all possibility) has no virtues; for every virtue (the mind constructs) it automatically and instantaneously allows the expression of its opposite, the beautifully corresponding vice! So, to be free of vice is to be free of virtue! 🙂

Does Self Realization mean that there are no ups or downs in emotions? Does it mean that there isn’t joy in connection with another’s joy? Or that there isn’t sadness or anger in connection with other events?

Well, what happens is that everything that arises and passes as events and phenomena and related thoughts and emotions, occurs as an experience, and at the “centerless center” of it all, is an abiding, unmitigated stillness, thoughtlessness and emptiness. A field of Awareness that allows, embraces and subsumes it all. And there is an unwavering, abiding realization that this void field of all possibility is the Self. The Self that is free of identification with the experience, while paradoxically, “living the experience” more fully than ever as there’s no resistance to it!
