FRESH LOOK AT RIGHT AND WRONG - DO THESE GO AWAY WITH AWAKENING ?
♥ This video ♥ This video on YT (YouTube) if you prefer :) ♥ iTunes podcast ♥ Blip.tv channel I have a tough one for you - well, for many of us to look into. I want to explore right and wrong. So, let’s be sure to be in heart for this one - mind will not like it at all. Center down. Nor do I know what will be found in this exploring, either. What I do know, though, is that right and wrong, along with all those other dualistic concepts, are the territory of mind. Mind feels at home there - mind feels useful in that domain. Well, and let me state this up front - I am not enlightened. I do not claim any such thing. That’s a whole other concept and exploration, though, and I am not going there, now. I just wanted it said for the record. Awakenings are happening all over the place. Awakenings can go through many stages - we can be progressively awakened, more and more. This is more of the territory where I abide, right now. I promise that soon, I’ll do a journal on enlightenment - a more recent one, for there are some older ones out there. Meanwhile, back to here and now, and right and wrong. What are these concepts that we hang on so tightly to? What do they represent? And what happens, now, when we take a step up and out of them, and look back down - metaphorically, of course - on that old territory? What do we see?
I see the old game of duality - of good and evil, right and wrong, yes and no, hot and cold - that whole thing. Am I above that now? You might not like the answer: yes and no. Yes, in that things are simply seen as a whole from here - there is none of this separating them out that way. It just dissolves; disappears. No explaining that - nor even knowing where it all went. It’s just gone. You wake up, you look around one day, and all that is just not there. I’m very accepting of such things. I don’t go to the mind for explanation, or chase my tail around that way for very long. It has been proven to me that mind has none of the answers I seek, so I don’t use it for that. I just rather accept - and go on. (I highly recommend this, by the way. It’s a great, peaceful way to go on.:) Right and wrong. These aren’t the first part of duality that disappears on us. At least, that’s my experience - which, you’ve got to realize, is all I can speak of and through. You’ve got your own. Don’t ever let mine [or mind] invalidate yours. Stay in heart, and you’ll just know things. Trust your Inner Self. You can trust this one. No one and nothing in Life can be trusted - all that appears just passes away, and isn’t known for being too truthful while it appears - but Inner Self can be trusted - as the Faithful Companion. Moving back to the subject - right and wrong. When did these go for me? I really don’t know. I just looked, one day - and found they were not there. Or, let us say they went through a radical readjustment - realignment. What is “right” is what heart does, where heart leads. But wait - it is not wrong not to go that way. Maybe it is not right in the highest sense - but it is not wrong, either. One of the things that happens is you begin to see how all the things you though were wrong, before - you begin to see the rightness that was hidden away, within them. You didn’t see it, before - but it was there. All along there was a rightness operating there, operating everywhere - but you were blind to it. Do you see this, even now, in your life - operating, somehow? It may
be subtle, but I bet it’s there. This right and wrong thing only operates on the surface of life. Oh, it’s legitimate enough, there. It’s really not right to kill or to steal - it really is right to offer understanding and love. Sometimes it’s even right to offer tough love. Yes, these exist, right and wrong, even still - if life is viewed from the surface perspective. Go very deep, though, and they just disappear. Maybe it’s the tough love of the Creator, at work. Heck, I don’t know. That’s too conceptual, anyhow, so let’s leave it aside, for now. Don’t have enough evidence for that one - and heart doesn’t leap at it. So, moving on. There are whole books written on “why does bad stuff happen to good people,” aren’t there? Maybe youve spent some time pondering on this one yourself. Or why do the bad people have it so good? Maybe that’s the reverse side of that question. Anyway, what do you think of this? Never mind - I don’t care what you think. What do you know? That’s a much better question. That one takes you to heart. What do we know. Well, we’re not living just on the surface, anymore. If you were, you wouldn’t be reading these journals. They drive mind nuts - and the surface life is controlled by the mind. That is mind’s territory - the surface of things. That’s where science lives - what do things look like. What can we prove. Poor science. Oh well - with quantum physics, that old cabal is being broken into - broken up in important ways - and that’s good. There’s a deepending (interesting ‘typo’ for deepening) going on pretty much everywhere. It’s interesting, since a lot of people haven’t recognized this, yet, so they’re a bit confused by what’s going on. That’s okay, though - it’ll all come out in the wash, as they say. It’s all good. That’s the thing, too. You get new eyes to see things with. These new eyes of yours have a strange component or ability - they have an inability to see anything wrong or dark or evil. All those
are just concepts, these new eyes see. They really didn’t exist in the first place. Everything just is. It is neither good nor bad, right nor wrong, or any of that. There is no evil - there is just confusion, just ignorance. That’s not evil. That’s pretty much what happened to right and wrong, as well. This is not situational ethics, either. We don’t look to see what the situation calls for. That’s all backwards, anyway. That’s not real living. That is to be totally taken in and used by the mind to play games with. You’re mind’s play toy if you’re a believer in the rightness of situational ethics - that’s in my opinion, of course and I realize they’re a dime a dozen. Everyone has a few. Mind still thinks there are things out there - things that are important. These new eyes don’t see things that way. The new eyes know that “out there” is merely the mirror for in here. Out there is the joint mirror of everyone’s inner life. You don’t fix things in the mirror. That’s silly. So, in that way, there is really nothing out there - it’s just an image, a mirage* of sorts nothing really there [like in the mirror]. Now, that is not to invalidate the outer life, or anything. That is not to make it worthless in any way. If you’re going there, do realize that is the mind at work - playing with you. Stay in heart... or you won’t hear what’s really being said. With these new eyes, we realize that the heart is the center of Cosmos. All is accessed through there, anyway. Heart is the real place, the place of Reality - capital “R.” Heart knows best. It has its own mind, somehow, as well. Haven’t got that one figured out, yet - nor am I putting any effort into it. Things just come when they’re ready - when it’s time for them. It’s a waste to be concerned over them. All is perfect. Just be with the flow - and let go. Through these new eyes, we see the beauty in everything. That’s surprising, at first, to be sure. Mind does a flip. How can this be, it says. Something is wrong. Poor mind. When the worst
things that happen, and even to you, are seen with these eyes well, nothing’s the same, anymore. We see the blessing that’s there. We realize the best thing just happened - not the worst. And we’re left stunned. Well, do consider - it’s mind that is stunned - that’s not you. It may even shut mind up for a while - and that’s fine. Enjoy that while. Let yourself go - and just be. Mind is a terrible taskmaster. It’s always cracking one whip or another - keeping you in line. Well, mind has been fired, here. Have you noticed this? Mind’s not in charge, anymore. And that’s nice. Oh, initially, it’s scary - don’t I know. But after a time you will notice that is also the mind - it’s mind that’s scared - and remember... that’s not you. In your observing, your watching of self, you step back and back - the better to observe. You begin to notice, now, how you’re really not the mind - how you don’t need it to function. Oh, it’s needful for the surface part of the life, of course - very useful, indeed. But that’s neither who nor what you are - it’s no deep part of you. That’s just the picture show you’re attending - the surface life. That hardly even touches you - very superficial. So, yes, mind’s useful for that, but not for the task it took on - running your life. Mind’s a lousy choice for that job. So, most all of what you think you’re going through, as you walk through these transitions that come along - it’s really not you going through that- it’s the mind. Mind has a hard time adjusting to the new reality that appears. Makes no sense to the mind, so it balks. Doesn’t want this to be, even - wishes it could turn back the clock, to what it thinks was a simpler time - back when mind was in charge. So, my advice is to be gentle with mind. Don’t be cruel. Just be kind, as you would with anyone else. Be patient with mind - it’s doing the best that it can. Cut it just a tiny bit of slack, though - not much. Mind is a wily thing - it will have you in knots, once again, if you let it. Actually, even if you don’t, ho ho. There’s more than just mind
operating here - there’s what works through the mind. All that programming, and such. But that’s okay. It’s neither here nor there, really. You’ve risen above that, now. That only affects or influences the mind- and that’s not you. This one’s going on long, but too bad. That’s just the way it is. In order to delve deeply, and enjoy things once we get there, sometimes it takes longer, so let’s just go. This is fun. I feel you with me here. Keep centering down in heart. That’s what I do when I notice mind intruding - just use it as a reminder to center in heart. Takes minds intrusions, and turns them to your advantage, you see. So what is right and wrong in that instance, I ask you? We just made wrong right - do you see? Ha, what a lark! :) Anytime you are suffering, here’s a biscuit, a cookie for you - it’s just mind. That’s not you. Can you step back from that, and just watch? Just observe for a while? See what happens, that way? Just center in heart, and observe. That’s where these special eyeglasses are, you know - in the heart. You put them on there. They help you see all things different, oh quite. Quite literally, nothing’s the same as it was. And that’s a lark and a joy to enjoy. There’s new life in the heart, just waiting for you, there. All the burdens, the confusions, just drop away. Now this will happen when and as it will. There’s really nothing you can do to make it happen for you. It just does. That old phrase at work: It is what it is. The only doing I recommend is to work with your intent - and in order to do this, you must turn around and observe. Start watching you. Much of your intent is secret, is not known to the outer mind. Much is subconscious, maybe even unconscious. Much that you’re living by isn’t even you, my dear. Do you ever see or hear your Mother speaking through your lips? Perhaps your spouse, your father or Aunt? So, you’re not you, you see - or do you see this? You - that is,
your mind - is a conglomeration of all this, so much more. It’s quite a complex, a conglomeration, a mix. It all can’t be seen at one look - even a deep one. It takes time to appear before you, but it will - or it can. Just realize that your deeper intent rules. Look at those times when you say something you wish you hadn’t said - what was acting there? Who did that? Was that you? Or was that your Father speaking, there? Who did that? Well, that’s an easy one, on one level - that was mind. The big open secret here is that you can step back from this - just observe - why because? Because you are not that - you’re not mind. All the magic begins for you - or so it seems to me - when you step back from mind. Oh, I highly recommend it, I do. No, it won’t make your life an instant paradise, or the like. That’s just mind, again - asking or looking for that. So get real - stay in heart. Pain will still come, as will joy and delight - but they pass. Everything passes. Now, if you’re stuck there, in mind, then that’s a bummer when your joy passes, you want to hang on to it. And, still stuck within mind, when we look at our pain, see that it passes - well, that’s a delight, isn’t it? There’s that situational thing at work. On the one hand, the passing is terrible - on the other, it’s fine. Ha - well, they’re both the same. That’s what your new glasses show you. Everything passes in the material world, the phenomenal world - in the chimera. It’s just an illusion. Now, stay in heart. Mind does some crazy things with that idea the one about life being an illusion. Don’t trust mind with that one - you’ll be disappointed. Mind’s not qualified to enter that arena. It can’t even get through the door - so leave it behind as you enter. Stay in heart. So, maybe we’re complete, here. When you set the homing beacon in heart, and keep returning there - things start looking quite different to you. Everything’s morphing. There’s a lost feeling, for a while, while adjustments are being made in the mind. Mind’s had its whole world turned quite inside out, you
know. Mind is shaken - again and again, it keeps happening to mind. Mind had a whole world, a whole reality created, around the way things were supposed to be - according to mind, that is. Mind pretty much enforced this reality on you, in many ways, as well. Mind is or can be a cruel taskmaster. Well, mind has been fired from that position, now, and it’s shocking. Not only is mind out of a job - or so it thinks, because really, it is still quite useful for more appropriate things - but, in addition to that, it’s whole world is crumbling all around it. Yep, mind is quite shaken, to the core, and it just doesn’t stop. Oh, there are pauses in it, where mind can sort of catch its breath. It even gets to thinking maybe it was wrong about all that stuff- maybe everything’s okay, after all - and nothing’s changed. But, look out, of course - that’s just a prophecy that the next major change is just up ahead, there... duck, incoming! And yet again, the whole rug gets pulled out from under the mind. Well, two things I’ll close with, then. First, know it’s not you going through all of this - that is mind. It is mind that’s having the hard time with all of this - if there is any hard tie being had. You’re quite fine with it - from within heart. You’ve got a much higher wisdom operating here, that simply knows all is well - it’s unperturbed. Center in that. The other is this - be glad. You’re awakening. Just be happy about that. Trust me, honey, the whole world, the whole solar system could literally blow up, and you’d be just fine. You can’t be hurt - do you see this, yet? You’re not that. Whatever it is, if it can be pointed to or even named - you’re just not that. So, if you still think you’re a this or a that, then you just have some more work ahead of you, that’s all. No big deal. The other thing, of course, is to just keep centering in heart. The rest of it will pretty much take care of itself. Cheers! Ain’t life grand?!
