What You Seek is What is Seeking - God is Closer to You than Your Self

 

If you consider yourself to be on any kind of spiritual path, you very likely have had a tendency to be too hard on yourself.  You try not to think negative thoughts, to avoid judging others, to avoid "sin".  One definition of the word "sin" is "separation from God".  We want to avoid our dark side and become more of "how we are supposed to be".  This way of thinking occurs probably not as the result of religion, but religion has sprouted as the result of this way of thinking.

 

However, the "shadow" (your dark side) is as much a part of the human experience as is having two eyes. The light and the darkness that are basic components of the psyche, are what enable the human mind to perceive as it exists in material space.  There exists both day and night down here on the ground, and the inner world of the human mind adjusts itself accordingly.

 

As part of our physical evolution, the brain has developed an ability to identify opposites in order to survive.  While this platform of duality in perception has allowed us to make great breakthroughs technologically and in the arts and so much more, it is also the foundation of every war - mine versus yours, and us verses them.

 

 

Simply "us" or "ours" are very difficult concepts for the brain to hold onto without having to meditate, read spiritual books, go to Satsang, church, temple, etc.  This Non-duality flies in the face of everything our brain has told us it needs, in order to navigate its way through material space. However when the body dies, when we leave this place, duality is baggage which may not required for the journey.  

 

Furthermore, you can realize the oneness of all things before having to wait until the body expires.  It is possible to navigate through a world of opposites, play by its rules just enough to avoid hurting oneself or others, but also know that none of this is real.  This world of a body, located in time and space, is just a tiny fraction of what is really going on.

 

Some of you reading this will be asking yourselves, "How do you know?"  I know it because I can see it.  But so can you, if you're willing to look.

 

God or Source, being Infinite, is that which you were never apart from in the first place.  The illusion of separateness is a trick of the mind. You were never separated from Source.  And this is the hallucination that fuels so much suffering in the world.  It's what we've structured most of our civilizations on, it is a delusion that holds most of the religions establishment together and keeps them in power, and - it's a lie.

 

Imagine a world where we all felt safe enough to stop believing in the lie.  By all outward appearances, the material world of today is not ready for such a revelation.  But are you?

 

Atman is Brahman.

 

To know yourself is to know God, and to know God is to know yourself.

 

Peace,

 

Eric Allen Bell

My nan was a cosmic hobbit.

Please, don't use so many 'you' messages, Eric. Its very judgemental of others and it is deterministic in a thou shalt/shalt not or else kind of way. Everywhere I look I see people creating this duality where none existed and destroying thereby the experience they wish to share. Please, don't use 'you' as a means of empathising with your imagined readers, it marks you as a finger wagging, witless ninny, holier than thou moraliser, just like a muslim.   Its particularly hurtful to me to see it so heavily laid down from people who, like you, present themselves as spiritually aware. I had this nonsense all through my childhood in South Africa from religious people who preached it incessantly and I'm determined to raise your awareness of the issue despite your pathological aversion to accepting and discussing. Going round telling people you this and you that is a monstrous arrogance, so ubiquitous and routine it is hidden in plain sight.

And this folks is what I am talking about. I am beginning to think Eric is a Cosmic. Spiritual, not religious because Earthly things based on money are in fact a lie. I have to say I agree with almost everything here. In order to survive in a place so complex it is actually important that we let go of what we think we need. I actually also agree that we were never separate from source, this is a virtual impossibility from my point of view. In my attempt to explain this in a simple way, matter does not exist without the connection to a dimension we will never know of in life. For this is the balance, and there is no possible way to escape the balance.

Reading many of the things you post on here I sometimes wonder, and then once in a while BAM, the truth is right there. I am not making the statement that every one of your words themselves are the truth, but more that you see the edge of this paper plate of a life we live. With the universe an unknown we are all meant to believe as we do, I believe that we were individually created by an individual creator, therefore each of us are as we are meant to be. The girl or woman that sees themselves as ugly in the mirror because of the lie of beauty society holds is actually perfect beauty for the one that created her for example.

Though I do not believe that we create ourselves, rather we are a circular creation of our environment after our own (Pardon the Thomas Aquinas reference) unmoved mover sets us into motion. Of course there is also the lesson teaching demon human made solely to teach us how not to be. In the end I think our thoughts are actually very much the same, even though meant to be not the same. It was many years ago that I started seeing the lie that money mongering religious leaders feed us, but at the same time I find pieces of what I have been looking for, just in a different way than what they feed us. With this balance I also know that things are as they are meant to be, without I might not have found any spirituality at all.

You see this balance, and you are open to the world. And though I have in the past mentioned (a friendly reminder) to be open I know you do have the ability to believe and not be closed.

Awesome post!

The Infinite Peace that is Nothingness

"If you throw a rock

at something solid,

that solid thing will be damaged,

it will be hurt.



But if you throw a rock at air,

the air is not damaged nor hurt.

How to Witness this Moment

Become Fixated on Awareness Itself

"One meditation method would be

to become completely enamored

to let your attention be

completely fixated on itself.



Whether you experience

consciousness as being,

or as the witness,

you let your attention

rest fully in that.

In Consciousness, There is No "I"

"In pure consciousness,

there is no 'I.'



There is the absence of any object or subject.



And that is profoundly peaceful;

profoundly satisfying.

A feeling of completely being at home.



Yet that peace is not there for a me.

How to Move Deeper into Silence By Spending Time Alone

"It is good to spend

an extended period of time alone
