I have heard this description many times but it doesn't seem to be treated as critical to Self-awareness. Maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part. Isn't this the true Self that Innermusiq... isn't experiencing? I've never known this. I've always remained extremely focused on and as what-is. M...

Yes, and then get over it. I understand that this thread is saying that there is no way to think beingness, that Self-awareness cannot flower in the crowded mind. Yes and now I'm talking to one who is living it. So, now there's just an innate ussuredness that accompanies Self-awareness. All movement...

Phil, you make sharp assumptions about what clarity would look and sound like, from some perspective. I've talked that way and know it comes from a clever mind trying to make out the lay of the land. You sound like someone who is more interested is entelectualizing the ideas than seeing what the wor...

Phil, I'm getting you don't like the feeling of being wrong and it pisses you off. Yes? Knocking every one off pedistals is not clarity. It's just a clever way of bringing everyone else down to a level and understandable playing field. Mediocrity and cynicism at its best. The sound of Self-awareness...

At first I interpreted the space to be the source of joy. Then I realized it was simply the ongoing presence that was Joy itself. No joy to be had by anyone. Now I only lose my keys.

Phil, don't envy the tortured 'artist'. Really feel what you're reading. Seems your amusement is misplaced.

Yes, I am certain. I am certainty. I am certainty in action. I write this with certainty. You read this with certainty. How else could it be.

Hi Gina. Can you hear that your way of communicating what you're seeing is not working? You are absolutely right about this area of corruption but you're only focusing on one aspect of insanity and leaving the rest to stand on. That makes you a part of it. Taking sides is not clarity, it is being ri...

Hi Kenoby, I think the reason you continue to buy the books is akin to staring at something you know you need to see but can't quite make out. Any way, that's how it occured for me. Welcome.

At some point, this idea of ego must end and the movements you perceive will be realized as your own projections. Does there need to be two realms, one that you proudly claim and the other dark and scarey and home to something else unnatural? Realize you are always present even while YOU are 'doing'...

So glad you're back.
OK, is not liberation the very process of freeing one thing from another? Does not the awakened pure consciousness preclude any conversation of liberation? No process, just aware that it was never captive. Seems that at best the two words could describe the same movement.

Gina, I actually agree with the thrust of what you're saying but I strongly suggest you take a look at the underlying energy that is feuling your communication. Doesn't sound centered in beingness. Moreover, this is not the forum for venting outrage. Justified or not. This Now conversation is ALL ab...
