I Am so Lonely

How many times have you or someone you know said this sentence? “I am so lonely” or “I don’t want to be alone”. There is a world of people who are together, but unfortunately separated and alone. What is loneliness? Is it possible to be lonely or is it only a state of mind? The mind is constantly confronting us with conditioned factors that can restrict us from living consciously.

Furthermore, it is a baffling topic to discuss. There are many forlorn people who have become deeply depressed, even suicidal. How can thoughts push us to the brink of despair? Is loneliness real or a phantom of the mind? Does this result due to a lack of awareness? Or would this make the discussion too easy? Loneliness can develop into mental disorders. However, it can solely result from misconceptions of the mind. Continue reading

Automatic Random Output

The title “Automatic Random Output” suggests that we are going to discuss computer calculations. However, it is a reference to conditioned mind behavior. The title is a proper description of our mind activities. A person usually accepts conditioned mind behavior as normal; even necessary. Furthermore, we interact with the flow of mind output similarly to the behavior of a laboratory mouse.

Thoughts and feelings programmed through conditioned behavior are similar to a carrot placed in front of a donkey to get it to move forward. Furthermore, the mind is able to keep us distracted with this old worn-out information. Object consciousness; when unaware, will attach itself to a random mind / thought or emotion. We often remain in this unaware state of being for most of our existence. The mind continues to generate and regenerate thoughts and emotions. This behavior is automatic because it is a conditioned reaction. Continue reading

And the Walls Come Crashing Down

We experience life in an object existence filled with perpetual walls. However, these are not only physical barriers. There are also such structures that consist of nothing more than mind induced thoughts and images. Nevertheless, mentally constructed blockades seem very durable and even more difficult to surmount then the physical walls.

Moreover, these obstacles have been firmly established in our existence. The minds complexity has interlaced these into our daily experiences. This gives the appearance of a virtual mansion with rooms. The mind has constructed endless numbers of these imaginary mental rooms. These often seem inescapable. However, there are doors and windows to a void beyond the mind. Nevertheless, most of us choose to stay within the boundaries of these well-established mental barriers. Continue reading

The Path to Becoming Conscious

We use the word “path” to describe the way from here to there. A path indicates a beginning and usually an eventual ending. This could be called an arrival. It is obvious that we also choose this terminology in describing our experiences with the conscious awakening process. However, it is beneficial for us not to lose ourselves in the definition itself. A journey is a proper word to use here, but it is never about the “path”. Being conscious is very likely not even about the experiences on this path. The experiences are only useful as sign posts during this journey.

Is there a necessity to travel down a path during the conscious awakening process? This question is ultimately unnecessary because it is a mind creation. A tree, a bird or even a rock does not practice becoming conscious. They do not spend each moment of existence in thoughts about being conscious or aware. These life-forms simply “are” life and consciousness. They are engulfed in the suchness of now. I have a deep appreciation for this expression of presence. Continue reading

Duality or Life: Wake up and Smell the Roses!

The mind has a tendency to induce duality in our existence. However, we are always unity with life. Duality is only a mind illusion. Life essence is home to the one self. The birth of each person signifies a false journey that supposedly will return us home. We have never really been traveling on any type of journey. Moreover, the idea of a specific path or purpose in life overshadows our existence.

The manifestation of conscious energy through an object offers the opportunity for conscious energy to experience itself; provided a life-form has reached a given level of self-consciousness. Furthermore, we were born for this one grand accomplishment. Our human evolution has given us the opportunity to perhaps achieve full consciousness, although there is no guarantee. Continue reading
