mind

A Quote by julie sarah powell on true, realization, knowledge, mind, no self, self realisation, bernadette roberts, and ramana maharshi

True realization brings you to the point where you see that you don't know a thing. That you literally cannot know anything, because all knowledge is from the mind and is therefore garbage.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on self, no self, new dimension, mind, now-moment, unknown, still point, self realisation, christian, contemplative, journey, passageway, true nature, and julie sarah powell

It is far more than the discovery of life without a self. The immediate, inevitable result is an emergence into a new dimension of knowing and being that entails a difficult and prolonged readjustment. the reflexive mechanism of the mind -or whatever it is that allows us to be self-conscious - is cut off or permanently suspended so the mind is ever after held in a fixed now moment out of which it cannot move in its uninterrupted gaze upon the Unknown,

A Quote by julie sarah powell on elysha, mindbody, mind, self, no self, self realisation, revealation, joy, true nature, and divine

Elysha was talking about the mindbody package, and suddenly it struck. That was it. The penny dropped with a clunk. That is what had been missing from the picture over the past weeks. The mindbody package was gone. The Self was gone. There were no internal arisings, no emotions, and no feelings of the package of who I thought I was, which felt like it was just the tip of the iceberg with loads more under the surface. Nothing.

With this revelation the feeling in my chest lit up like a fire and felt as though it was burning and shining like a great beacon of joy. I saw that the Self is dead, in a clear momentary flash. A huge smile suddenly burst out. Joy was breaking through and there was no containing it.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on moment, nothing, mind, self realisation, no one, no self, true nature, enlightenment, and divine

There is the feeling of being finished. The end. The attention is held right here, in the body, in the moment, with no-one and no-thing. The depth of feeling and connection at the eyes when open and closed is no longer here. There is no internal centre. There is no feeling at all other than the senses operating. It is as if all of the doors to the mind have been shut. Nothing scary, nothing monstrous, just nothing here.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on oneness, awakened, insight, arising, divine, consciousness, self, mindbody, freedom, mind, suffering, awakening, spiritual, and spirituality

In the Oneness / Awakened state the insights and experience of all arising in and as the Divine, and the Divine being everywhere and everything (beyond consciousness, the Self, and the mindbody package) has been obvious. This has been consistently tested by life and the obviousness, and the freedom which this brings, fluctuated accordingly.

Despite the freedom of the Oneness state I was aware that the mind was still going, I was still buying into it and really when I felt into it I was still suffering in a way that I thought would have finished many years before. There felt to be lots of changes but essentially I was still the same mess that I had always been, albeit with a more mature stance and view of things.

A Quote by Elysha on mind, mind informancy, giver, moment, spirituality, and self realisation

If yours is to settle for the familiarity of your mind informancy on a moment by moment basis, then yours will be to continue on in the same manner that you are already doing - even should you find something better. The mind informancy drive is not a giver, it is a taker.

A Quote by Elysha on simplicity, mind informancy, mind, awakening, natural man, true nature, divine, beyond self, and no self

It is all so very simple but this simplicity will not be seen via your familiar vision of looking at everything via the running commentary of your mind informancy. Awakening to the state of the natural man will only come about through you consciously choosing to move from this, that already is - and this you are very capable of.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on duality, momentary, nothing, divine, self, self realisation, beyond self, no self, true nature, mind, and me myself i

Duality:
We are always talking about two 'things', until there is only silence on a momentary basis. These two things are:-

a. The 'no-thing' which is our true nature or the Divine.

b. The 'some-thing' which is not.

The nothing we will call our true nature, because that is exactly what it is.

The something or mindbody package will be referred to as the Self. (This includes the conscious-self, unconscious-self, ego-self, feeling-self, true-self, knowing -self and all the rest of the ideas of the chattering mind.)

The self is also the entire package of the person which we know as me/myself/I.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on mind, limitation, freedom, chattering mind, no self, self realisation, and true nature

 

The mind is only capable of creating limitation.
It is a limitation itself and cannot ever be anything more than that.
So it is only stepping out of this chattering mind that will bring freedom from it and relief.

A Quote by Byron Katie on womenswisdom, love, mind, and projection

As long as we're at war with our own minds, we are at war with the world and with the whole human race. Because as long as we want to get rid of our thoughts, anyone that we meet is likely to become an enemy. There is only one mind, and people are going to tell us what we haven't dealt with yet in their own thinking. You're fat. You're stupid. You're not good enough.'

If you are an enemy to your own mind, other people have to become enemies too,  sooner or later. Until you understand, until you can love the thoughts that appear  in your mind, then you can love the rest of us. You work with the projector  -the mind - not the projected world.  I can't really love you until I question the mind that thinks it sees you outside itself . . .
