What you believe is something each of us needs to have as our starting point. From there you will grow and learn of the next step in what you need to do. The direction you take and the path you follow depends on so many things, but it all should boil down where the spirit mind decides you should go. Where you are on your journey to enlightenment is where your past lives have gotten you, to this point. The next step on that journey is relative to what you need to learn or become in order to go from where you are to where you need to go next. This of course is not a physical journey, but a journey of the true mind and spirit.

There is a promise that each of us needs to make to ourselves and that is to search for the answers that will make us whole, make us one with THE ALL. Look within yourself and always be aware of the inner voice, for it is in this voice that we come to know the truth. This will lead us to the love of truth that will take us to our awakening and beyond, And, yes there is more even after you realize your enlightenment again, there is more.

Finding truth is just the beginning and when you do you will find that oneness will completely change how you view what and who you are. In oneness you will perceive the world in a completely different way. Your beliefs will fall away as the ego disappears from existence.

Up to that point the ego has been the center that your identity revolved around, but the ego will no longer exist. You will have a new center that your true self revolves around causing disorientation at first.

This disorientation is temporary as you become adjusted to the reality of your true self. This is the natural state you should have been in all along and not the state of illusion created by the ego. Ego is the true altered state of consciousness.

Our future is in the making and nothing has been decided as the future has not been written. This world is evolving and the information we’re given is going to continue as more and more find enlightenment. We know what we know now because of the information previously given and with new information we’ll continue to grow.

Where we are now is for good reason, but the reality of it all is that this physical plane that we now consider to be the reality is a manifestation of the egoic state. The very definition of reality is the existence that is absolute, self-sufficient, or objective, and not subject to human decisions or conventions, the state or quality of having existence or substance.

“Substance” means: “that which underlies all outward manifestations; the essence; the essential reality; the thing in itself,” etc. “Substantial” means: “actually existing; being the essential element; being real,” etc. “Reality” means: “the state of being real; true, enduring; valid; fixed; permanent; actual,” etc.

This egoic state is not the true reality for the reasons stated above and below:

From The Kybalion

The human reason, whose reports we must accept so long as we think at all, informs us as follows regarding THE ALL, and that without attempting to remove the veil of the Unknowable:

  1. THE ALL must be ALL that REALLY IS. There can be nothing existing outside of THE ALL, else THE ALL would not be THE ALL.
  2. THE ALL must be INFINITE, for is nothing else to define, confine, bound, limit or restrict THE ALL It must be Infinite in Time, or ETERNAL,–it must have always continuously existed, for there is nothing else to have ever created it, and something can never evolve from nothing, and if it had ever “not been,” even for a moment, it would not “be” now,–it must continuously exist forever, for there is nothing to destroy it, and it can never “not-be,” even for a moment, because something can never become nothing. It must be Infinite in Space–it must be Everywhere, for there is no place outside of THE ALL–it cannot be otherwise than continuous in Space, without break, cessation, separation, or interruption, for there is nothing to break, separate, or interrupt its continuity, and nothing with which to “fill in the gaps.” It must be Infinite in Power, or Absolute, for there is nothing to limit, restrict, restrain, confine, disturb or condition it–it is subject to no other Power, for there is no other Power.
  3. THE ALL must be IMMUTABLE, or not subject to change in its real nature, for there is nothing to work changes upon it; nothing into which it could change, nor from which it could have changed. It cannot be added to nor subtracted from; increased nor diminished; nor become greater or lesser in any respect whatsoever. It must have always been, and must always remain, just what it is now–THE ALL–there has never been, is not now, and never will be, any-thing else into which it can change.

THE ALL being Infinite, Absolute, Eternal and Unchangeable it must follow that anything finite, changeable, fleeting, and conditioned cannot be THE ALL. And as there is Nothing outside of THE ALL, in Reality, then any and all such finite things must be as Nothing in Reality. Now do not become befogged, nor frightened–we are not trying to lead you into the Christian Science field under cover of Hermetic Philosophy. There is a Reconciliation of this apparently contradictory state of affairs. Be patient, we will reach it in time.

Our ego believes this body and mind are our true self and yet they are not. Our true self is that part of us that goes on after this body has died. The essence inside of us is one with THE ALL. It has no end and no beginning and therefor is never changing. It is as it has always been.

 

Why then is there the universe and separate false reality, this facade? There are many different beliefs, the first being that it is the true reality, but we’ve already discussed why it is believed not to be so. Another is that there is an evolution that needs to take place, but this can’t be so because THE ALL is never changing and evolution is change.

So let’s take it in another direction. Your true self is housed in a body that has a mind with which it can think to perform tasks that it needs to survive. Also this mind gathers information from the senses and experiences, but somewhere along the line it created the beliefs that it makes decisions about what to do and who the self is or ego.

As we begin to see that this reality is not reality we begin to understand what and how we live is not reality either. The physical creature comforts we desire are not necessary for us to know happiness. The life we live is totally dependent of the wants and desires of the egoic mind.

The ego that created the beliefs of your false reality are what have shaped and molded it, just as we are shaped and molded by them. The beliefs are based on false information and can therefor only be false.

But let’s look at the ego. It believes that it is the true self, the only self and it has certain presupposed definitions of what it wants and needs to be happy. Then it goes about creating a roller coaster of highs and lows to completely mix up the situation. Duality is in full force with the ego and its cause and effect selections. On autopilot it creates the situations to maintain an off-balance situation for most of us.

To combat the ego, we should dismiss it entirely. It is what creates all the bad things in our life by creating both the negative and positive aspects of life. The ego is all about the physical self and yet it doesn’t want there to be any complacency. The bottom line is the ego is holding you back from your true potential.

The ego wants there to be competition and it wants you to have ambition. These things only create the personification of all the things that is wrong in this physical reality. They give us greed, envy and every other negative emotion and response including hate and fear. They breed doubt and in the end create the roller coaster we want to depart.

When the ego is nullified the results are an uncaring attitude for the self and all that remains is a deep and satisfying caring for everything. This is when you can learn to love unconditionally and that is when you will find the true meaning of life. The true self is a caring, giving and wonderful being that is more concerned with the good of all things.

While it is in this state everything is however not wonderful. There are conditions in the world such as natural disasters, deaths of loved ones, accidents and unenlightened people. There is also still the matter of making your way by doing something to earn a living.

Those that are enlightened learn to share and be part of the greater good of mankind, nature and the universe. Somewhere in all this you will awaken to all that is good and right with the world and it will reflect in how you are perceived by others.

Not only will you find acceptance as you are viewed, doors will open for you that were previously closed. Things will begin to happen that you wanted to be, just as things will start to appear in your life to help you fulfill your desires, but they will not come on your terms. If you truly have forsaken the ego you will actually have no terms.

That which you express and think will become the nature of unselfishness. No more will you have thoughts of beating someone at any game or competing for the job and yet by ridding yourself of these desires you will more readily attain them. I know it sounds like it’s backward, but it is the reality of the way things are.

People who have found this have found the true pathway to living their dreams, of having all that they need to be happy, healthy and wealthy. They are at peace with every aspect of life as they are at peace with everything and everyone. They harbor no ill feelings for the evil that goes on, they seek no revenge for the wrongs done by others and because of this their world receives none of these unwanted and negative things. They simply don’t exist. There comes a point when you come full circle and connect with that part of you that is one with THE ALL.

It is in this enlightened state that we awaken into the oneness where nothing else exists. There is no longer the need for the ego and its control fades completely from your life.

As you bask in the glow of this immersion you come to know that THE ALL is everything and nothing. It is every place and no place at the same time. It is all time and no time. It merely is and each part is just like another because there are no parts. There are no lines of separation, no delineation and no barriers. You simply exist in THE ALL and there you find peace and contentment, harmony and tranquility, like you’re living inside joy itself.

In this state, you become aware of the rhythm of THE ALL as you flow with the beat and breathe with its breathing. Complete and utter satisfaction are found and so there is no need to seek any farther for the completeness you’ve been searching for and there is unconditional love filling your heart.

The ego loses control over your physical being and your oneness self. It no longer wants to compete it wants to create instead. It no longer has ambitions which only bring your vibrations down as that makes you greedy and envious instead of supportive and loving. You lose the need to beat someone at something you only want to give and in the giving you become stronger and more worthy of the oneness that surrounds you.

Break from the spell the ego has you under, as it only wants to separate you from THE ALL. It has its own self-centered agenda seeking its petty wants and needs. Needs that will keep you on this roller coaster of duality that constantly bombards you with its highs and lows.

With all that being said it is impossible to accurately put the experience of awakening and describing THE ALL into words. Words simply do not express the situation fully. The only way to know what it is to awaken, but words are all I have to convey the message I wish to impart.

separation-is-the-illusionWhen we give something a name or try to describe it we create separation, set limits, draw lines or boundaries, but there are none. When we think of up we pair it with down, heads we think of tails, right and wrong, yen and yang, etc. In reality they are all the same coming from the root, which is one. Since there is only the one there cannot be two or duality. The coin is one just as the rock or grass in THE ALL.

 

There is only oneness, all being the same, but the concept is lost in the egoic mind that is trapped in the illusion, trapped by itself. It cannot know the truth because it is the lie. Only the true self can know the truth and it is already enlightened. When we look to the stillness we come to know the truth and realize we are enlightened. Not superior or inferior, because we are one, the same and existing as one.

 

Certain words imply separateness, but they are not accurate. The head side of the coin is like the tail side, they exist as one coin. It’s hard to reconcile the notion when we’re tied to the illusion that we are an individual, separated from all the other things. These things are not divided and are not things at all. They are one and the same only pictured differently in our mind, which is part of the illusion.

 

The divine is everywhere and everything. That’s you, me, the rock, the tree and anything else you can inaccurately name. They are all part of THE ALL. They exist as one. They are one, not separate, not divided, but one. Naming something implies boundaries where there are none so if you say tree you could mean rock or bird or you. THE ALL produces these, but with no ALL there is no tree, rock, bird or you. They appear only in the physical realm as separate, but in THE ALL, there is no division.

 

THE ALL is everyone and everything else. It always has been as it is never changing. THE ALL is not a thing, it is what it is, but even to label it as it is incorrect. THE ALL is and cannot be defined, categorized or described. When you become aware of the stillness and see the truth you will see THE ALL, reconnect with the enlightenment that has always been and know oneness as it was meant to be. Then the idea of separateness fades from what you believed to be reality.

onenessOneness or the knowledge of truth that we are all one is a grace for us to cherish. When we awaken we realize we have always been one with all things and enlightened. This oneness also brings to us unconditional love.

The love we hold for all things will not only change the way you look at the world, but will change the way the world looks at you. Oneness is the gift of unity, peace and harmony. In the oneness lies the truth or rather they are one and the same, for there is only the one, THE ALL.

Love is giving without expectation of reward, but the reward is forthcoming, anyway. The reward is in the giving as all that you give comes around and back to you again. It is the light that marks the way, though there is no way for it is always there, all around us, ever present.

Blessings abound when there is unconditional love in your heart. All that is and all that will be flowers and blooms in the light. Love is the tie that binds the world and all things in goodness, for goodness is all there is.

Duality exist only in the physical realm, as there can be no duality when there is only the one. Duality in the physical world comes from the one. It comes from a focal point that is projected into the physical world to create the polar opposites.

As individuals awaken the truth becomes known and their vibrations grow faster. Enlightenment is once again seen and known. Growth to that purpose is what we need to accomplish in order for the pending evolution to take place. It is the next step in the chain of events that has been ordered. Compliance is mandatory and will take place in due time.

Tim is not real a factor since it doesn’t exist in THE ALL. This is where the confusion comes from. We can’t visualize a realm as different as THE ALL, but it is what it is, unaffected by time.

The Egoic Mind Cannot Discern the Truth

truthAll is not what it seems. There is much to be gleaned from the fundamental teachings to which most religions of the west prescribe. They are correct in so far as they go, but there is much that must be learned to go beyond and realize the enlightenment that is within. Beginning your search is that which is not necessary, for that search will only bring you back to the beginning. It is within that the answers are to be found. Rather than searching become aware of all that you are. Therein lies the truth and the truth is all things for there is only the one.

As we ponder the questions that avoid answers we come across the one question that must be answered first. “Who Am I”. Certainly there is the physical being you see in the mirror. Its presence can be seen and felt. The brain tells us that we exist and the egoic mind solidifies this with definitions of who and what we are. I am an American, or I’m a writer, or I’m a republican… and the list goes on and on, but who are we really? What is the truth?

Our egoic mind is clueless in finding the truth, because all it knows is what the five senses tells it what the truth is. All the egoic mind knows is the physical realm. It does not know the spiritual state. It doesn’t know anything beyond this incarnation and yet there are thousands of incarnations that have gone before where who we were was much different. Different jobs, different beliefs, different nationalities. None of which matter and are certain not what defines who we are.

To find what truly defines us we must look inside. The answer is there and has been all the time. It eludes us, however, because we seek it, we grasp for it like some greedy child for an ice cream cone. Awareness of truth will begin the understanding that will let you see what has been there all along. The enlightenment you want has been yours always and is just waiting to be discovered.

 

In the days of plenty, when everything is going our way, we rarely pray for help or guidance or any of the other things we pray about. It’s when we are suffering that we want relief from it, or a solution for it. Happiness is a state of mind, but just the ego mind. This is the mind that makes us think we are separate. This is the mind that creates the problems and makes us suffer.

When we awaken in The ALL we realize we are one with the divine and though there is still suffering from aches and pains of the body, sorrows from illness or death, and even disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, there is mostly happiness. It is the body that suffers and not the real you. The reality of suffering is only physical for the real you doesn’t know pain or sickness or death.

All physical things die or wear away. The true self has no beginning and no end. The true self allows everything to be. It does not know good from bad, right from wrong because in The ALL they don’t exist. There is only oneness, peace and harmony. As long as you’re awake all you’ll see is the nondualistic world of reality. Sure the physical body will get sick and eventually die, but the true self, which is no self, lives on and even in sickness it sees only the reality of its oneness.

Oneness is truth, the reality of the world, knowing that it is as it is. Knowing that no change is needed. Change is trying to control what can’t be controlled. It’s like trying to stop the rain from falling down or the wind to blow. These things are natural, just as waking from the dream state is natural.

Lift the veil, step into the silence, know the truth. This is the real you, the you that you want to know. The you that sees the truth and enlightenment. The you that perceives the world as it is and lets it be. Revel in the truth for it is freedom, real freedom from the suffering the ego puts us through.

When your world ends and the beliefs along with the self created by ego have fallen away, there may still be some residual thoughts that linger. These are so well hidden deep within that they could resurface during times of anger or fear or stress that they make you fall back into the dream state.

It is better to find them and face them before they strike during an extreme emotional state. Though no always, these beliefs were generally formed early in one’s childhood and have become so ingrained in the identity that they go unnoticed even under the most thorough searches.

Awakening can become shrouded if the beliefs surface and the dream state will begin again. The ego mind is hard to completely shut down. When these beliefs try to surface, dismiss them for the false beliefs they are. Give them no foothold or ground to stand upon and they too will fall.

The awakened state is the natural state, but you’ve lived in the dream state so long that it is the center you feel most comfortable with. It is not the truth. It is not reality. It keeps us separate when we are really one. the same. Knowing that ther is only the oneness, divine singularity can stay you from receding back into the illusion.

Hold onto the truth and dismiss the false beliefs. They will not help you on the road to enlightenment. They will not let you perceive the world as it really is or allow you to know the peace that truth, oneness, and unconditional love will let you experience. Let it all go and let it be.

Into the darkness, into the light. In a world of oneness it’s all the same. There’s no right or wrong, no good or bad. There is only the way it is, the truth, the reality. The separation is not real, the division an illusion.

What is real and what is not?

The path is clear, but the way is hidden behind a veil of grace. Like a tiny sparrow way off in the distance, that can’t be seen with the naked eye. With a pair of binoculars the sparrow becomes clear. It is all a matter of perception and when the nothing that is everything becomes clear it’s because you’ve brought it to you with awareness.

Cloud the mind of the memory of your true self, if you want, but it still remains. It continues to call even when you choose not to hear. The echo resonates, dying slowly, only to be reborn Cast aside your doubts and listen with your heart. In the heart the message will blossom to full bloom. Let it register as you take the realization and awaken to the truth. It is the natural way and there’s beauty in its wake.

Foster the care, create beauty everywhere. Oneness is beauty that spawns understanding and love. It nurtures the truth of enlightenment, granting the grace meant to be known and shared. Grow within the peace as oneness envelops you and you are no more the selfish, separate being the ego depicts.

Spread your wings and soar unbounded by ego’s strings. Therein lies the way to follow, the way we were meant to go. Look to the silence, it is the passage to a world where shadows become light, wrong becomes right and love is always in sight. Awaken to the reality of truth where you can be free.


There’s a truth that goes unspoken. It whispers from the heart and speaks of forever. It doesn’t gloss over any of the details or mince words. It talks of the oneness that is and the harmony it generates. The gentle flow of nature that comes from the oneness where everything is united.

To feel the joy of peace is to know the truth of the world. To perceive the world through the eyes of truth is to see that there is no separation. Dwell within the splinters brought together to become one. Forget the seeking and the wanting, because what’s there to want when it’s all one. Where is there to go when each place can be any other. Revel in the truth that knows only love.

Unconditional love that sees only the one, where there is no color, no beliefs, no duality. Each is divine and each is one. God is one, there is no other. The truth is the same no matter what you believe. You are what you are and it has always been so. You have lived countless lives believing in the separateness created by the many egos in your past. But the truth has always been the same it is you that has refused to see it.

Not on purpose, but because it was what everyone else believed. In fact there have been times when you even suggested that the ego world was not reality you would have been stoned or put to death. You would have been labeled a heretic and excommunicated at least.

Thankfully we’ve progressed to the point where we can express ourselves without being killed as a heretic. Yet when I speak of these things to others I’m labeled as odd. Shunned because I dare to challenge their beliefs. But in the end all will come to know the truth, it is inevitable even though it may take ten thousand lifetimes we will all eventually see the truth and know the serenity of oneness.

Letting everything go. All thoughts, all ideas, all resistance to the ego self is when you will see the whole. There are no words to describe the ALL, or whatever you want to name it. A way of looking without eyes. A way of feeling without fingers. An inner sense that takes you beyond ego to find your true self. The self that is not controlled and manipulated by ego.

Truth is the enemy of ego. It fears the truth because it cannot no the truth as there is no place for ego in the awakened self, the true self. Ego is thoughts and ideas brought from the outside with our fine senses, filled with disinformation from other egos. One you see the truth you will see the lies. You will know the real you without the ego.

In the stillness that lays within there is love and peace and truth. It is in the nothingness that is everything. This is not a place that can be sought because it is here, there and everywhere, but nowhere, which can also be read as now here.

To have conditions is just another way of saying you don’t have control. This mind and body are not your true self. Though this life is a blessing, it is even more so when you are not controlled by ego. When the ego is in control it manufactures problems brought about by dualistic properties found in the realm of an ego controlled reality, which is not reality at all.

In a dualistic world there is right and wrong, good and bad, along with many other opposites. Nondualistic means there is only the way things truly are and this is truth. It is ALL. And yet, there are no divisions, no separations. ALL is one, in a divine grace.

Sure, there are all the goings on of the world and they will always be as they are at any given time. It is your perception that changes. It is the way you see the world that is new. When you awaken from the dream state you will see the truth, see the oneness that exists in reality. There is only one God who is everything. This very thing tells us inconclusively that there is only one and that there can be no other.

There is no middle ground between being the “me” and being “one”. This is not to say that the “me” will not try to hold on or even try to gain control after awakening. It will even play tricks and come up with new beliefs to get you to buy back into its control.

When the shift takes place there may be a period when the “me” hasn’t quite dissolved away completely. Though the awakening has taken place there might be something that needs to be resolved. Some issue that has not been totally answered or fixed.

This is not always the case It can just be the doggedness of the ego refusing to give up control. Either way this “me” must fall away completely to prevent it from ever taking control again. Work through any issues and the let it go, even though there most likely is disorientation while adjusting to the new center of self.

The ego center is no longer the center of self. Truth is the center after awakening from the dream state. More specifically it is your real consciousness that is your new center and it has different things that it values. Some of these are truth, peace, harmony and love.

The ego self has an agenda that is always wanting and seeking. It want change and creates problems that it has no intention of solving. The ego wants things because it is convinced that they will make it happy. Sure they will make it happy for a brief time, but when the newness has worn off it’s off to other things and so it’s never satisfied.

The awakened self is happy and content, no longer wanting what it doesn’t need to be happy. Still it will lead you towards what you need to be truly happy and content. But mostly it sees things as they are and lets them be as they are.
