Personal Is Never Personal

Don’t take it so personal. Most people are familiar with this statement. It seems to happen often each day. Nevertheless, we usually don’t realize the potential for conscious awakening that is within this comment. Furthermore, it is our interpretation and state of unawareness that makes it seem very personal.

personal

Yes, of course, there are people that will do something to you with malicious intent. However, even this is not personal. It is your interpretation and lack of awareness of a person or thing that makes it seem personal. You are observing a person’s short-shortsightedness in that moment. The other person is not doing this intentionally and you should not take it too personally.  

This energy often feels very personal. Nevertheless, I can assure you that this is not as it seems. However, we must first go beyond conditioned mind structures and reactions. It will then be possible to remain unattached from any and all energy vibrations. An individual never purposely directs this energy toward you. Please consider what I am about to write to you.

Personal vs. Non-Attached

Another person’s behavior toward you is usually based on their own inner mind-generated illusions. Furthermore, this results from conditioned thoughts and reactions. Therefore, don’t take anything too personal. You will begin to differentiate between a person that is being mean and a person that is blindly directing their conditioned reactions toward you instead of themselves. I realize that this is first difficult to understand. I feel the truth of this insight. However it is difficult to put into words in that moment when the mind interferes.

Let me try to rephrase. A person is often not referring to you in any manner in a given situation. This is an accurate statement even when he or she is directly speaking to you. The individual is experiencing a conditioned reaction that is purely internal. This is to say that it is within him or her. You are simply the focus point for this energy but it has nothing to do with you.

We collectively remain unaware through most of our activities and interactions. Therefore, a person has no way of comprehending that this built up energy blockage has to do with him or her and not the other person. Hence, it is typical that a person looks outward and sees a problem in another person. However, the core issue is within him or her.

Furthermore, whatever triggers a reaction (person or thing) is the center point of a person’s energy. However, I repeat, it is not personal. It generally has nothing to do with the other you. Moreover, I have observed that the mind cannot or will not accept this acknowledgement. This is because such enlightenment is based on conscious observation and not on conditioned mind reactions.

Kind regards

Dissolved Away and Became Nothing

What would it be like if mental and physical attributes suddenly dissolved away? Likewise, what would remain if you suddenly realized that you are not your thoughts or even your body? What are you if there is no longer any attachment to mind or body?

dissolved

I recently observed universal enlightenment. This was after an experience whereby the mind had been dominating any conscious awareness to the present moment. I had difficulty remaining consciously aware due to repetitive thoughts about a situation that had happened on the previous day. Everything that had seemed to dominate the now literally dissolved away. Furthermore, I once again became aware of the simple act of being present in the now.

It was amazing to feel the spaciousness that seemed to flow in and around me. It felt like a waterfall of energy cascading and engulfing the present moment. The so-called problems that the mind had insisted were threatening dissolved away as I spontaneously became aware of nothing. Continue reading

Breath of Life: You are Alive

Breathe in slowly and breathe out even slower. What are you experiencing? We feel life in each breath. However, let’s focus on more than just the biological ramifications. We know that the body is an organism that must have oxygen to exist.

breath

However, the breath you take also entails the flow of life within it. This, in turn, provides the basis for object consciousness to awaken. Thereupon, the portal to universal consciousness opens. Your state of presence allows passage. Continue reading

Origin of Consciousness

Consciousness has been a topic of fascination and frustration throughout our evolution. This has especially been true over the last few thousand years. Scientist and doctors tell us much about how the brain functions. Many speculate on how consciousness works; still others explain theories concerning the processes involved in consciousness. Additionally, the use of religions, science and fantasy attempt to define it. However, it and its origin is still a mystery.

 

origin

We often relate religion and the supernatural with consciousness. The mind cannot truly comprehend it. Therefore, its origin must come from a higher source. Scientist approach most discussion of consciousness from the perspective of brain activate processes. Spirituality doesn’t really offer prove or non-prove of it. This is the practice of acceptance and non-attachment. Furthermore, this suggests that life and therefore our existence simply is. Continue reading

Live Now and You Will Live Forever

Now is the key to consciousness. We have heard it before. It is likely that we will hear it again. Furthermore, it is the portal to balance and harmony. Therefore, your relationship with this moment determines how you will experience the next. Are you interacting with the mind or existing on autopilot? Likewise, you can ask yourself an additional question. How do I wish to live? This is of paramount importance to the awakening of consciousness. 

live

This question sounds philosophical. However, we can use this as a practice application for any situation. Moreover, it can simplify everything in daily activities. Eckhart Tolle had said something during a spiritual retreat that applies to our discussion. I wish to paraphrase him. “Focus your energy on now. This will allow everything to take care of itself. You can live for now and live forever.” Continue reading
