The two obstacles preventing Living Relationship (the Covenant between human beings and Intelligence) are the false beliefs that we are functioning with a free will and with an instrument called mind. Since childhood we have been subtly coerced by our guardians (family, friends, the educational system as well as government, social and religious institutions) to accept their teachings (indoctrinations).
Those false teachings are responsible for our maturing process to be interrupted and so leaving us to aimlessly sail adrift in the unchartered waters that lead to chaos, confusion and corruption. Our Ordained Destiny has always been the Promised Land (Life’s Covenant) where all of our living challenges are effortlessly fulfilled. Instead, we are fulfilling the machinations of a nonexistent mythical mind.
This stolen life is the prime cause of our fruitless existence. What aberrant mind cannot do is the pointing to a direction that leads to a Synchronized Bonding with Intelligence (the Mysterious Expression of All That Is). We have instead substituted a false belief system which at best, can only lead to a life of dependency (aberrant mind) and mediocrity.
Presently, we are assuming that our awareness is functioning in wholeness. That assumption can be verified (self-evident) by simultaneously being aware of our presence (being aware of being aware) and the outer environment (see illustrated cover). This simultaneous awareness is our reality because we are born with the potential of being synchronized (to occur or cease to occur at the same instant) awareness beings.
Most people believe that they are fully and constantly alert and so will not give credence to another viewpoint. These writings are to those who have a sensing of an incompleteness in their lives and who may (out of a sense of natural curiosity) wish to find out whether they are functioning in the present moment (“Praying Unceasingly”). After several failed attempts they will know that what they believed to be true was only a belief.
The reason why we never have doubts about our being fully conscious (“awake”) is that we can successfully complete our daily interations without the awareness of our full attention. In other words, the I Am consciousness (pristine awareness) is not necessary as a prerequisite while engaging in the utilitarian lifestyle and the not necessary psychological life. The latter has replaced our Ordained Meaningful life.
There are no Living Relationships without the presence of one’s soul in all of our living encounters (relationships). The reason is that when the soul is absent (lost in thinking) then all that is being experienced (and expressed) is the regurgitated past. Unless (and until) you are Here In Totality, there is no Objective Clarity. Relationship is the Sharing of the Present Moment (Life’s Covenant) and that is not possible while the soul identifies itself as mind.
Why this is important is, that when one is not fully present then aberrant mind is using one’s awareness energy to fulfill its imaginary existence. When aberrant mind is quiet (and not made quiet by the trickster, aberrant mind) but through the Objective Observation of Apperception (a Seeing that is beyond mind) then that Witnessing is the Virgin Birth spoken by the Early Writers when referring to the Re-Birth of the soul. Without Apperception (Meditation) there is no Resurrection.
Presently, we are being held in captivity by the past incarnations of others. We are fulfilling their hopes and dreams (as were their ancestors, ad-infinitum). The reason why we are experiencing emptiness in our lives is because nothing is ours. Meditation is the only path that leads to the Kingdom of Heaven (Life’s Covenant). There is no other path, here is no other door. It is a journey-less journey that does not require the taking of one step. Through the Witnessing of Apperception is the Discovery that you never left the Fathers House. In other words, that Witnessing reveals the paradoxical (a statement that seems contrary to mind, yet it is true) nature of its validity.
All other attempts in the search for meaning in one’s life has failed because those efforts were a pre-text to keep you distracted from realizing mind’s hoax. While you were busy making efforts to being something that was never palpable, the “trickster” was using your essence to fulfill its stealth ambitions.
Only through the process of Apperception will the hoax and hoaxer be revealed. That revelation is the ending (canceling) of the “not-you” (aberrant mind) because a mirage is simply that, imaginary. The indoctrinated past is all that has prevented you from Realizing your birth-Heritage as the canvas upon which Life Expresses Itself.
There is a story about a thief (the images of mind) who dons a policeman’s uniform as a disguise in order to catch a thief (mind). Since millennia this absurdity is daily being repeated through the efforts of mind so as to seduce pristine awareness, (the soul) into believing that its thoughts are ours.
It is not through the efforts of mind (indoctrinated thoughts) that one enters into a Relationship (Life’s Covenant) with Intelligence (The Mysterious Expression Of All That Is) but rather through the Realization that that Covenant cannot be broken but only temporarily suspended. All efforts to again be united with the Beloved has failed because all efforts are of the mind. A natural law says that a like thing cannot See a like thing. In other words, the images of mind cannot see themselves.
The only means to again be made whole is through the Eyes Of Love (Apperception). That Seeing is the only pathless path to true freedom from past incarnations (freedom from the known).
There are no books (others interpretations) to struggle with, no classes to attend and no making efforts to being oneself because no one can give to you what you already are. When mind is still, I AM. Only the pointing out as to why you are not experiencing your true self (“To Thine Own Self Be True”) is sufficient to those who have “Ears To Hear”. The key to being oneself is not through the struggling of the mental process but rather by the stillness and Reality of Being.
SO, “BE STILL AND KNOW”.
That stillness, that knowing
is my wish for you.
