The energy of creation is one. Life forms may function differently but the creative force that makes possible for them to respond to living challenges (living relationship) is in the DNA of their prime-directive. That force is intelligence (the mysterious expression of all that is). In all its forms, intelligence is an extension of itself.
Human beings will differ in physical stature, talents and gifts, but there is one aspect in which our humanity is equally shared – we share the same pristine awareness. Because pristine awareness is content-less it is experienced by all in the same way.
The unique difference (but not better) between human being and other life forms is that only we have the extraordinary, extrasensory gift to simultaneously experience pristine awareness (oneself) and the outer-physical environment. It is that gift which makes our effortless bonding to the eternal. Only in that state can it be known that “I (pristine awareness) and the Father (intelligence) are one.”
If those acting as the temporary guardians of children would protect them from psychological predators (indoctrinating them with the same false beliefs as was given to them), then the children, upon physical maturity will recognize their true identity and destiny as spiritual beings. They will know that living relationship begins when the good seed (pristine awareness) is planted in fertile soil (the unification of pristine awareness with the beloved). “Of myself I can do nothing except the Father in me that doeth the works.”
Presently this intimacy is not being consummated because the guardians have allowed the society to do unto the children as was done unto them. This separation is called “sin” (missing the mark of our ordained inheritance). Instead, what we inherited is a pernicious (deadly to the soul) psychological disease called mind.
We are not born with a “sin”-ful nature (aberrant mind) but rather we are born into an environment where from childhood we are subtly coerced into accepting societies’ “norms”. Those responsible for our descent into chaos, confusion and corruption are family, friends, the educational system, government and social institutions. These un-truths have been passed on since millennia (“sins of the fathers”).
Because of our fall from grace (no longer being bonded to the beloved) we have accepted those false beliefs, not realizing their immeasurable harm to our souls. In our present fallen state, pristine awareness can only see through mind’s obscure machinations.
When first pristine awareness accepted the false belief that its thoughts were self-generated (and not realizing that they were being duped by mind) was the beginning of our decent into pandemonium (hell). Pristine awareness was no longer pristine. Our present identity as mind makes it acceptable to believe that we are something that we are not.
Human beings are the only life form that accepts the false reality of death. All life forms will protect their physical survival. The survival instinct is innate to the prime-directive (intelligence). Human beings have the same instincts as other species but with one exception – the fear of complete oblivion (permanently losing one’s awareness).
In the natural state (the unification between pristine awareness and intelligence) there is no separate entity as me. We are not born with the power of self-generating thoughts. We have accepted the false belief that we have the ability to make independent choices (free will) concerning our life’s destiny. We have accepted that we are “captains of our souls”, and so, capable of charting a course in the forging of our destiny.
All life forms will undergo clinical death. Upon the demise of the human body all of the stored information gathered from one’s life span will cease to exist. In other words, when a life-time of stored information and images is gone, so will what you believe yourself to be also be gone.
We were never intended to have an immortal thought identity. The thinking process acts as a necessary tool in serving pristine awareness. Human beings will vary in their limited physical longevity but that which is limitless is the bonding of pristine awareness and eternity.
Regardless in which country one is born, when we again awaken from “sleep”, there is a knowing that when remaining in the natural state of unceasing awareness, we have again rediscovered our true nature, eternal life.
Everlasting life is always now. It is false thinking that is responsible for our not being here (living relationship). So do not “sleep” (lost in thinking). When false thinking ends so too will the mythical you (mind).
When there is an objective awareness of the motives of the divisive energy (mind), we will discover that its self-centeredness always favors its indoctrinated opinions. The incompleteness of our perceptions is because we are not grounded in our completeness (pristine awareness). We see “through a glass darkly” when we only see the false interpretations of past “sins”. This state was spoken of by early writers. They referred to our confused communication with one another as the “Tower of Babel”. We use the word babbling when what another says sounds like noisy confusion.
Since childhood we have been living under the semi-hypnotic spell of the great imposter (aberrant mind). The gift of salvation (redemption) from those never-ending deceptions is by realizing that only pristine awareness has the ability to objectively observe its entrapment. That objective discerning is called apperception (a seeing that is beyond mind). Apperception is a gift that is given to pristine awareness by the beloved. The fruits of apperception is freedom from the known (mind). “By their fruits (responding to life’s challenges) ye shall know them.”
There is no destination to life’s glory train. The journey is never-ending (eternal). The “fare” to get on board is to be unceasingly aware. There is no other you, there is no other life. “Life is real, and only then, when I (pristine awareness) am”. All else is maya (delusional). Now is always the right moment to end one’s “life’ (aberrant mind) and again rejoice with reality (being born again from moment to un-interrupted moment).
So, remove the cloak of the invisible body (aberrant mind) and put on the cloak of life’s eternal body (the unification of pristine awareness and intelligence).
End the nightmare (“sleep”) of chaos, confusion and corruption and you will discover that each awakened moment is an endless beginning.
That moment, that beginning, is my wish for you.

California-based Harry Krueger has spent the past 40+ years working to awaken humanity to concepts of peace freedom and consciousness. When he was 35 years old, he discovered a book by Sri Krishnamurti (which he read 7 times in a row) and it changed his outlook and consciousness forever. Harry is now 91, and has never looked back.
Through his writing, Harry explores the glorious reality of who we human Beings truly are, and offers insights to help us to break through the false identification of who we are not.
