Are you open for this?

If you feel trapped it is through your mind.
If you feel free it is through your mind.

Don’t give it to your mind to assess how good the day has been.
Just be present.
Be like space—it never gets old, it has no mood.
Be like a clear mirror—it has no opinions or preferences.
It doesn’t say, ‘I like to reflect flowers, but not beards.’
Whatever shows up, it reflects perfectly.

So don’t give up. By following these simple guidances
your mind is going to become light, open and clear. Why?
Because it is natural for it to be like this.
Only bad education, bad culture, bad habits distort
your perception and recognition of the Real.

Just be very open and present
and accept that every day is your best day,
every moment is your moment.

Are you open for this?

Morning ritual

IMG_4709.JPG

Every morning I take time to connect to the deeper sense of self

No thought, no feeling

I Relax. I Surrender. I Trust.

I AM Free like this, I AM at Peace,

Joy is my Nature.

Now I AM ready.

Life can happen through me,

I need nothing.

What ever the present moment brings,

I stay as I AM.

“What is puzzling you is the nature of my game”

Soul Mapping, that’s how I call it, but it might as well be called Soul Puzzling!?

Schermafbeelding 2016-09-06 om 09.10.09.jpg

The posts I did on this blog sofar are the pieces of the puzzle to complete me, to know my soul. To shine a light on who I truly am. The way I understand it, we are all the one supreme being, or perhaps His son. Pure Consciousness. We are filled with life force,  we are Life itself.

Now here comes the tricky part, we need a soul to be able to take on the human form. That makes the soul the avatar and the body its vessel. The soul comes with baggage, stuff we in the human form have to deal with, heal. And according to the story ‘The Egg’ by Andy Weir, like this our pure self aka the Supreme being aka the highest form of consciousness is able to mature. By knowing our true self we can heal our separated selves, to become one once again. And in short eventually we as a matured experienced, perfect, whole being take place with the rest of the gods.

It’s tricky, cause I don’t know if it’s the Truth. I Loved the story ‘The Egg’ and I hope you’ve read it too. It took me two times of reading it for ‘miracle’ to occur, but after that it never left my mind. I took off on it, until the moment that the mind just stopped. It just got lost, for a moment I was out off my mind! Have you ever heard the sound of silence? No thinking, no inner voice, no nothing? Complete emptiness? It was pure Presence. “I am, am is.” Mooji would say.

You know how the master teachers say, “I can show you the door or I can point you where to look, but you have to step through the door, you have to walk the path”? Well, I was presented with a way to get one foot in the door, to see from the point of the single eye/I. Be one with pure being. Like the Heart Sutra is used in Buddhism for contemplation, The Egg can do the same. It is not just something to be read , but the intention is to contemplate its meaning. Penetrate to the Truth. By shifting your perception away from the  personification. Getting caught in Right brain thinking, person identification or by asking to many questions like how or why, blocks the stream of information behind it’s facade. It blocks true knowing for the Truth asks nothing. So, as above so below, everything is connected. This short manual for reading the Egg, is striking for the human condition. We need to lose our self, the one we think we are, to totally be the One we have always been. I found my key to look behind the veil.

One of my earliest childhood memories is about me not being able to sleep, cause now and then my mind was haunted by the thought of dying. What will happen when we die? Is it the end of everything? What is the point of going to school of having parents?, for when we die we lose it all. “That’s it” my dad would Say. “When we die there is absolute nothing.” As a kid this idea terrified me shitless!

Only now, as I am writing it down for the very first time I can see past the Fear and a part of the Truth is shinning through.I realize that eventually the uncomfortable answer made me look deep down my own existence. Nobody besides me could give me my peace of mind. It must have prepared me to look beyond the illusionary, comforting blanket of our society. A society run on extreme forms of denial, buried the fear of dying. Always looking for distraction.

I just couldn’t imagine that since I was conscious of me being alive, that I would just stop being. Now back to the story about The Egg. While reading it I connected the teachings with my own feelings. It’s not the person or the body with which I identify myself that’s going to continue. It’s that part of me that is conscious of this person, that is eternal. To be precise, when I am aware of the person, this awareness obtained by an observer is perceived by something. Something that is untouched, it has no form, yet it’s full of life. You can’t describe it yet I know on some level it has always been there. The highest from of consciousness that connects us all.

“You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.”― Pema Chödrön

The Egg, made me lose my mind. There is no need for absolute answers. Just take your mind on a trip. Therefore reincarnation is real, you die, and you came back as someone with a different gender in a different culture, with a complete different personality. And still you are you, who is this you? In combination with this, you have to know there is nothing else in this universe except for You and God (God and his son or maybe existence is having a conversation with itself, in a way like I am having right now) That would make  you being everybody else at the same time. The teaching of one, of no other.                        See what happens when you bring your mind there…. and remember it’s not important that these insinuations are absolute facts. The  only purpose of this exercise is to blow your mind, to the point of no mind. And in this ‘nothing’ the infinite is found. The One that’s whole, wholly, the enlightened one.

This realization comes with a lasting feeling of Joy, Freedom and Peace. It is what they call salvation. By losing the person that is ever changing we get in return that which we can truly trust. Its our save resort, heaven on earth. Its an end and a new beginning.

This is Home no questions asked. You and I are the center of it all.

Who am I? What’s my purpose?

“Why bother ask the question Who am I? No one in the world requires you to go so deeply into introspecting. You don’t need it for a job, you don’t need it to get married, you don’t need it to buy a house, You don’t need it to learn a new language.

Through this question, many beings came out of confusion forever: Free from the fear of dying, from the fear of living, free from the sense of other…. ” Mooji

“The highest Purpose of this body is to be used to wake up to the truth of who you are, if it’s for some other purpose, then the body is just the pyjamas of the being. We are just sleeping init.” Mooji

“What a burden to have a ‘purpose’.””The mind can only speak and bring a doubt when there is a possibility of doubt.””There is no cloud inside a cloud, there is no tree inside a tree, there is no man inside a man. There is only consciousness and the life force expressing.” Mooji

What comes after Enlightenment?

“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” Wayne Dyer

What do you do when there’s nothing left to do?

You’ve reached the supreme goal.

You have no more “need” of relationships, jobs or “doing.”

You go deeper. You dissolve yourself completely and totally.

“Our real self does not ask questions, as it does not require answers.” Frank M. Wanderer

And you share.

You cannot help but share. Just being what you now are is sharing. Your inner peace and joy shine out to all, influencing our entire universe.

As you rest in and enjoy what you really are, an unseen force takes control of your life. You start taking action, driven by your inner knowing.

“If you know how to be yourself – your aura begins to hum. It communicates in quantum world beyond thoughts and words – where we connect to the source of life.”

You know.

That knowing is beyond all concepts and judgements, all self.

The Universe starts presenting opportunities for you to continue growing and helping others.

“The Universe is saying: Allow me to flow through you unresticted, and you will see the greatest miracles you have ever seen.”

For you, this may mean simply doing your meditation in isolation, holding the space for others. It may mean being very public. It may change over time.

Enlightenment is the end, but it is a very profound beginning too.

An enlightened person says:”I AM AVAILABLE FOR LIFE TO FLOW THROUGH ME”

‘Whatever it takes, I will be free of this’

You say you are searching for freedom
and something is becoming worse inside you. Why?
Because a power, a force that has not been serving you
is being exposed. And it is as though there is another entity
inside your being that is pretending it is you, or with you.
But now you are discovering it is not in service to Truth,
and being exposed, it begins to retaliate against you.
Are you aware of this or not?
Everyone who searches for the Truth or freedom
experiences what you are experiencing now.
So I am asking you all these questions, what will you do?
Will you say, ‘Okay, Mr. Mind, I will be nice and obey you.
I will be a good person. I will stay with you, just don’t beat me.’
Or will you say, ‘Whatever it takes, I will be free of this’?
Then, you turn yourself over to the Supreme and the divine energies.
You surrender to them, or you follow this process
and guidance of self-inquiry which I am showing you.
Trust it. Work with it until you are free of this molestation.
Because in this life, you must transcend the voice of the serpent.
And you have all the advantage
because what you are searching for is already inside you—complete.
It cannot be destroyed. It cannot be lost.
It can only be hidden and it has been hidden for a very long time,
and replaced by the devious play of the psychological mind.
Is it time for a change?
Yes. And so change has come.
Grace has come. Also fire has come.
Don’t be in despair. Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be afraid.
Greater is the power that has come for you
than the power that fights against you.
Trust and apply what I say.

Supreme being

Nothing does everything better than something.
I say this because we have a fear that
‘If I am empty of me as a person, how can I live?
I have rent to pay. I have children to look after.
If I am empty, how I can do these things?’
But you merely think it is you who is doing all these things.
This is a very difficult thing to convey to the immature mind
because the mind won’t accept these words.
The Supreme Being is doing everything.
Through all the bodies it is doing all this as the vital force.
But also the personal mind has an influence.
Now you must judge whether the influence of the mind,
if the involvement or so called help of the personal mind,
is needed by the Absolute. – Mooji
