We Are Up in the Sky

When we look up in the sky into the Universe(s) around us, what are we looking at?
Are we looking at substances called stars, clouds, moons, planets, black holes….?
We are forged of these very substances we gaze upon!
So what are we looking at?
We are looking at ourselves.
The Universe is alive.
“We” and the “Universe” are ONE

Labels

All language (including labels) is reductive
Labels are created by the mind
Take the mind created label “Human”
No two “Humans” are identical
I am labeled “Human” and you are labeled “Human”
We are different
Beyond language is the truth
We find this in our heart
WE ARE ONE

I am in my Heart

I once thought that my identity resided within my mind
My mind told me that “I” was composed of thoughts such as “I”, “self” and “other”
I now know that I am more than my thoughts
How do I know this?
My heart told me
The born intelligence of my heart came before the acquired knowledge of my mind
My heart told me that “I” am a part of a whole
My heart told me that there is no “self” and “other”
My heart told me that ALL IS ONE

Shrink

Can someone else figure us out?
Is the answer in a pill?
It turns out the answer is inside of us
Buried under our fears
Deep in our subconscious
We find our answer
In our heart

Thinking vs Being

THINKING
When we are in thought, we are in a state of thinking
we become our mind
we analyze our surroundings
There IS separation between ourself and our surroundings
BEING
When we are completely still, we are in a state of being
our mind is no longer thinking
we merge with our surroundings
There IS NO separation between us and our surroundings
ourself and our surroundings become ONE

“I” am “Existence”

When “I” talk or think, “I call myself “I”
How can “I” be an “I”?
What is an “I”?
Is an “I” separate from the “existence” that  surrounds me?
Can “I” take myself out of existence itself?
An “I” is what “I” call myself
Clearly, “I” cannot be just an “I”
“I” am composed of too many named “parts” (Eyes, Ears, Nose, Electrons, Protons, Quarks, Neutrinos, Photons….)
All these parts are created by the mind
More and more “parts” are created by the minds of society every day
 “I” is a mind created societal name
“I” is woven into “existence”
“I” is a mental concept
“I” am “real”, but “I” am a part of “existence”
“I” and “existence” are one
There is no “self” and “other”
WE ARE ONE
ALL IS LOVE

The Strength of Surrender

We can surrender to something deep within ourselves
This takes strength
When we surrender the entirety of all the thoughts of who we are, we surrender of our egoic self
Our true self then appears
Our true self is One with the Universe
We are the Universe

Baby in the Woods

If we were babies that grew up isolated in the woods, we would be pure of any acquired thoughts
we would be our original self
nameless and unknowable
wandering about
connected to all that is around us
woven into the whole of existence
we find this original self within ourself

Our Buddha Within

One may wonder the cure for Mental Illness
How is the cure figured it out
We figure by “un-figuring”
We surrender every idea and become empty
We fill ourselves with the voice of consciousness that permeates throughout the universe
The universal voice of consciousness is our teacher
We have this voice in our hearts
This voice becomes our teacher when we are ready

We are Not a Collection of Words

 An egoic sense of self is a collection of words, beliefs and concepts stored in our mind
“Name” “Job” “Human” “Father” “Mother” “She” “I” “Me” “Self” “Science” “Religion” “Brother”
We are not collection of words and beliefs
Our minds cannot grasp who we are
So who are “we”
“we” are a part of the “universe” itself
our mind REDUCES us concepts
BEYOND the mind (when all words, beliefs and concepts disappear) is the truth of who we are
we are woven into the essence of “reality” itself
Is there a word for this?
no
we are real, yet  unknowable

Unknowable “I”

If you ask ME who I am, I will give you an answer who I think I am
If I ask YOU who I am, I will get another answer of who you think I am
So who is right?
The answer is neither of us are right!
I can’t figure myself out with my mind anymore than you can with your mind
I can think that I know myself, but than I am stuck with a bunch of thoughts or words that can never recreate the self that I am
Thoughts of who I am can never be the same as who I am
My mind would like to think it can figure me out, but I always end up with a mental interpretation
So in the end,
My mind’s or Your mind’s interpretation of who I am is not who I am
A mental interpretation is just a representation or a theory of who I am
A mind created theory of who I am is not who I am
Sorry mind, but you can never figure me out
I AM UNKNOWABLE!!

Human on the Moon

we “humans” are a part of the universe(s) itself
we “humans” are woven into its universal fabric
The words “humans, earth and moon” are our own mind’s creation
It is our naming of all things (including ourselves) that gives the illusion of separation
Example:
A “human” on the “moon” looks back at the “earth” and sees other “humans”
The “humans”  now appear as a part of the “universe” as seen from the moon
To the observer on the moon, “humans” now look just like other “celestial objects”
Therefore:
There is one “universe”, and “humans” are a part of it
The “universe” and “humans” are one
We are woven together
“Humans” cannot be removed from “Universe”
“Humans” are like celestial objects with minds
Again, It is our mind’s naming of things that gives us the illusion of separation
