Does The Evidence Of God’s Being Exist In Our Own Heart? Are We God?

8brcezvew6ucrn18j8zhwje7aj6

As only the heart knows, God Is our innermost Being, the Totality of Being (Intubeing), Nonliteral, Nonsensory, Intupersonal, without attachment to or conflict with any thing-event, and therefore the ultimate Center/Heart of Awareness (Nonliteral Perspective).

When we See (Realize) through our own personality or ego, thus putting to Rest that separate selfhood (the true crucifixion), we Are living God in man (Christ Jesus), as you and we and God become (as they have always been) the same Essential Quality (Nonessentiality) or Spirit (Oneness/Wholeness). Remember, the Center of Awareness Rests Before (through) the thing-event, and is not the thing-event, not anything mental or material outside.

It would be like a singular cell (concept) of the body (mind) coming into Full Body/Mind (Andro-Cosmic) Consciousness, in Essence, Selflessly Realizing the Great Singularity (God) from Within. The cell (soul) would see (live) through all aspects of the Body/Mind Continuum as a Whole, intubeing the Body/Mind Ourself (Nonliteral Perspective)–and not just a particular aspect (literal perspective) of the Body/Mind. Or, to put this in another way, it would be like an object in space becoming Aware of the Space (Spirit) as a Whole: our understanding Awareness would penetrate all objects (concepts) in space (mind), as the Center would Be everywhere and nowhere. Such pure Awareness (Intelligence) would Be Nonsensory, Being (Intubeing) the Subject-Object, Energy-Consciousness Continuum Ourself rather than a place or time or mental/material body outside Ourself.

But pure Awareness can only be realized by first confronting, penetrating, understanding, and by that understanding, resolving our split in consciousness (duality/sensory perception/ego) through every moment we live. So, if we are not living/being whatever we don’t know whatever as Ourself, as God. The true Way of the cross, then, is a living cross who leads our soul Into Consciousness (Intubeing). Thus the true Resurrection Is the Selfless Realization of Ourself (pure Spirit) as the Totality of Being (God)! For by fulfilling the Way of the cross through our own existence on earth, we don’t have–BUT ARE–understanding Awareness (Living Jesus), nonliterally speaking.

Who Are We? Is There An Essential You Or I?

3105761859_deaf52e447_m

Yes…but more an essential We rather than you or I. That is, We Are the basic, pure Intelligence who Nonexists (existence as a Whole) even Before (through) the personality…and may be called the Intupersonality/Nonego or Great Spirit. Yet, most of us identify with a single personality or ego as ourself and thus reinforce a split in consciousness or division in mind from that Whole Intelligence and understanding Awareness who Is our innermost Being (God).

Ego/personality is simply, but arbitrarily, our own conceptual point of view (literal perspective) or particular focal position (center) of concentration in physical space, and attached to the body, as it is, stands out as our primary object image of life (ego/projection); yet we are the Space (Spirit) in ourself and as a Whole…as the Whole Consciousness (One Adam) or Nonliteral Perspective. Even if we were to put aside our physical body and not think of ourself (as ego) at all…the basic Intelligence (Nonego) that we Are will still Be there (unstructured). Such pure Intelligence can never die or end–only the image or concept (form) it takes dies–having a beginning and an ending
to its literal perspective. And so death appears real to the personality, who mistakes the image (form) for his life (being).

But see through the concept of personality, living totally through the moment, and our Center of Awareness Rests as the Intupersonality (everywhere and nowhere) or Nonliteral Perspective. This may also be called Living Life (Jesus) or the Resurrection of Life, as the Totality of Being (Intubeing) Is Before (greater than) the sensory experience…even as pure Intelligence Rests Before (Within) and behind the concept (form) of pure Intelligence.

Naming The Concept

Concepts are not reality, but they are, like reflections in a mirror, extensions of reality. These shadow-entities grab our attention and make us aware that there’s also light, even the light of understanding. Indeed, aware that there’s something (Nonthingness) greater in us than shadows. But, in remaining hooked on the object image of life, man needs constant reminders to help him chart a course straight through his own dark psyche, transforming the ego/personality–and all the concepts (images) that go with it–into Self (Intuself/Nonego), that is, into enlightenment, liberation, the Kingdom of God. Thus concepts are a necessary means of contemplation for the weary traveler in a world beset by many false trails: personal doubts, insecurities, fears, desires, denial, and, maybe, the biggest stumbling block of all, guilt.

Concepts, as precepts, help us to focus our mind on the very energy that the precept represents. Yet the Energy-Consciousness (Spirit) is not the thought but Rests Before the thought (Being greater than), just as the light comes before the shadow–and is greater than the shadow–in fact projects it. But, nonliterally speaking, it may be said that the shadow is also the light (Spirit), like a reflection in the mirror is an extension of the reflector. It’s just that, in the case of human personality, the reflection can’t see the Reflecting (Nonpersonality) and thus doesn’t know it, doesn’t see Who and what we really Are (God). The reflection remains stuck on its own image/duality, sensory perception, ego, the literal perspective, and like a child, is still being manipulated, controlled and exploited by his own childhood (ignorance). Indeed, a child, while still a child, can’t see himself yet as an adult, or, to use another example, a mass of energy–while still centered in its mass–can’t know itself as pure energy.

But when we see (live) through the concept of whatever, even the thought of God, we automatically transmute the energy that is the thought into Self (Intuconsciousness), into the essential Quality that is already ourself as a Whole (Intubeing/Nonessentiality), annihilating any identification with the concept or object image. Thus the reflection, in having died psychologically to itself as a separate entity in space (or mind), selflessly Realizes ourself as the One Soul Reflecting, that is, as the Whole Space (Spirit) or Intuconscious Space (Energy-Consciousness): Nonduality, Nonsensory perception, Nonego (Intuself), the Nonliteral Perspective; and like an adult who sees, knows, lives by virtue of his adulthood, Rests in the understanding Awareness that Is the Totality of Being (God)!

Now, having come Aware, we may give witness to this through the writing and speaking of our understanding (gnosis), of our interior Vision, to others. But language is metaphor, not reality, and we can only do so in speaking by analogy. For what we are speaking of transcends human language! It is not the words themselves (nor the human speakers) that are the ultimate message (Truth) but the Living Energy-Consciousness (Spirit) that comes Before (through) the words (concepts), and cannot be contained by the words! Indeed, we really can’t speak of it directly at all. Being Nonliteral, Such Quality and Dimension of Perception Is greater than any thought; thus Suchness remains the very Life of all that can be known and lived, as Suchness Is Life…Ourself as a Whole!

But, in order that we might communicate (suggest) Suchness to another we first need to give Suchness a name, though, interestingly, Suchness is itself a name, literally speaking. So we may call That which remains Before any name God, Jehovah, Christ, Holy Spirit, Light-Conscious (Living) Energy, Liberation, Truth, Love, Compassion, understanding Awareness, the Nonliteral Perspective, the Presence, the uncarved Block, the Tao, the Principal of Life, the Word, Allah, Intuconscious Space, Intuconsciousness, Intubeing, Nonthingness etc. Suchness has many names…but Suchness, Being Nonliteral, is not any of these names, though in and through these names Suchness Lives! And in and through these names we Live and have our Being, Intubeing! For Suchness and We and the Word Are One Who Is Awake, Alive, Aware In Suchness…In Ourself As A Whole!

So when we speak of God as Jehovah, for example, we are not speaking of another being that’s outside of ourself, up in the sky, perhaps, but of Suchness, our innermost Being, That which Is Before (Within) the name, concept, image or thing-event experienced with the material senses, that is, experienced outside the Center (Wholeness) of Intubeing. Thus God, as a concept, may be said to be a deity, but remain as Suchness a Nondeity. And thing-events, as concepts, may be said to be actual, but remain as Suchness Nonactual.

So, too, in naming the concept, we don’t mean to suggest that the entity named is the essential quality (reality) but only that it is a means of entering into Self, into Being the very Suchness that all things Are (Absolute Relativity).

The Media Of Man’s Mind

2492375076_5853428434_m

There’s the actual world (universe) and there’s the media of man’s mind: that is to say, what actually happens, and having happened, how the thing-event is perceived and packaged by the mind of man who, being stuck in time and space (on the thing-event)–and thus influenced by his own partial experience–sees the subject matter as an extension of himself (ego). It also follows that in seeking to project his own view onto the same and thereby receive instant gratification–and hopefully reinforcement from others–man sells himself on his mind’s presentation (media) as the way it is (reality).

But with the universe everything just is what it is: a rock is a rock, a flower is a flower, a bear is a bear, a flowing stream flows, a growing child grows, every action is known by the pattern of its behavior; there’s no need to make more of it than that.

Thus the universe doesn’t project…doesn’t project its own preconceptions onto anything; doesn’t spin and package the thing-event to capture the ratings and make a profit, or, maybe, serve some political agenda. Nor will the universe make a personal claim or pronounce a moral judgment on the article, calling it mine or yours, good or bad, right or wrong, virtuous or sinful, that is, whatever it needs the article to be in order to hold on to its own belief. Instead, the universe remains open-minded and holy indifferent, so to speak, on every issue…as the thing-event and its pattern of behavior already is what it is.

But the mind of man, the human material condition, won’t leave it at that; he can’t: ego, being sensory, must have its gratification…and man as ego, being self-centered, must have his cause! Therefore things can’t remain just what they are.

So, it may be said: there’s the actual happening and there’s the legend; the thing-event in itself and the media event or myth that follows; this very moment right now and man’s concept of it after; the historical fact and the latest interpretation (correction) of the same; the unassuming spontaneity and the glorified lie, bias or distortion that is believed in; the depth of feeling/sense of being and the popular entertainment/packaged experience that’s produced; the world as it is (actuality) and what the mind and culture of man wants it to be (escapism).

The problem is: a thing-event can’t be taken out of the past and relived, not in actuality: what has gone by in time can’t be recaptured. So, no matter how correct the information on the subject is, there’s always the principle of uncertainty at play; and that plays havoc with man’s mind, making him even more insecure, and more determined to pretend to himself that he knows…that his interpretation of the facts is the right one. Thus man wants things to be the way he wants them to be, that way man can rest comfortably in his delusion of certainty…in his ego! Man can play God and be absolute, omnipotent! But again, what has gone by in time can’t be recaptured; for though patterns of behavior can be repeated, the initial events themselves are unique–and remain only as snapshots of the mind.

Thus any excursion by the discursive mind into interpretation is an exercise (deviation or digression) in myth making. Indeed, what is called the world, even the phenomenal universe, in being registered by the physical (partial) senses–but later captured and confined in concepts (abstractions)–is not the world as it actually is but as man sees it through the media of his own mind…and its ego! Even a literal interpretation of history, the Bible or the universe itself (science) is at best a distortion, and at worst a lie. It is only a projection of the discursive mind, not the actual thing-event. And never can be!

Know, then, it’s the literal perspective that we have come into the world to outgrow. Like childhood, the literal perspective (duality/sensory perception/ego) represents levels, grades or phases of development (experience) in man that we must enter into and graduate from if we are to mature spiritually and become what we have always been when Awake, enlightened adults (Intubeings). Thus the literal perspective (childhood)  isn’t the “goal” of creation but only a means to it.

When we are a child our world is a child’s world: we see it as a child (sensory perception), as being partial, relative, subjective, temporal. Thus we are caught up in the media of man’s mind, and often being spooked (intimidated) by our own collective ego (satan), seek to escape from the heat of that phantom terror by denying who and what we just are; in other words, if our parents/teachers/authorities fail to school us in the ways and means of the world (ego), and through that into the Spirit and Principal of Life (God), of Ourself as a Whole, we will fail to take up our cross and consciously accept the living responsibility of daily confronting, penetrating, understanding, and by that understanding Awareness, resolving our own childishness (ignorance)! Therefore, no matter what position we attain in the world, in spirit we remain a child.

When we are adolescent our world is adolescence: we want to be an adult (enlightened) but are afraid of taking living responsibility for ourselves (stepping into the Light), so we get caught up in a struggle to discover, or bury, our true identity. That is, we remain too strong in our own pride and insecurity and its need to hold onto the object image of life–and to the cravings and goods that come with it–yet too weak in our living faith and understanding to drop the identification with the past (ego), with the image and personality we think of as ourself.

Thus we suppress the urge to “still the mind” and know ourself as Spirit (Nonego)–and by living an attitude of nonattachment and holy indifference toward all things–Be the Love and Compassion (openness) that flows freely through the image self. Instead, we cling to body/personality, wanting “big daddy” (the institution of culture/government/religion, etc) to take care of us. Therefore, no matter what position we attain in the world, in spirit we remain an adolescent.

But when we are an adult our world is adulthood (enlightenment): we see as an adult (Nonsensory Perception), as an Intubeing, open, direct, total…we See (Intusee) everything from Within us and As Us (God)! Even the media of man’s mind, like a reflection in the mirror, just is what it is; there’s no problem with it. We don’t take it for reality; we are not making any personal claims or moral judgments on others; we are not trying to rewrite history, the Bible or the universe, nor exploit the countryside and the people on it–or serve some ideological agenda in order to gain gratification and feed our ego. We intusee things as we Are, as We (God) Are Living/Being them, as everything Is–and having transcended both our childhood and our adolescence–we intusee life (everything) as a Whole, as an Adult! Now the media of man’s mind reflects the Whole (but is not itself the Whole), the innate Light, the Nonliteral Perspective and Totality of Being (Intubeing) that Is Ourself. Therefore, no matter what position we attain in the world, in Spirit we remain Who and what we just Are!

Do You Agree That True Insight, Or Vision, Comes From Within?

6da91ad1d8d20774

Yes. Ultimately we Are what We See (Intusee), as there’s no separation with interior Vision (Nonliteral Perspective). But before we can realize this we need to unlock in our hearts the secret to living the spiritual life: Change the way in which you see and you will change what you see, thus transforming yourself.

This is not just a matter of asking the right questions, or seeing the subject matter from another’s viewpoint, but seeing (understanding) all thing-events as they are from Within, from the basic Intelligence (Spirit/God) that Is already There through us–Resting even Before we (as personalities) think about it. Such pure Intelligence/essential Quality (Nonessentiality), then, is our true (Complete) Self — who remains Selfless–and therefore the pure Ground (Center/Heart) of our understanding Awareness (Intuconsciousness).

Thus it is written that the Kingdom of God Is Within…for when we cease to identify with the ego/personality as ourself and see (live) life as a Whole or uncarved Block, we Are what We See (Totality of Being), even as Nonsensory Perception/interior Vision, Intubeing the Heart of Awareness, Rests Within us (us, here meaning ego) and As Us (Us, here meaning Nonego)!

The Principal Of Life

pointsoflight2

We are not the thought
but the Being behind the thought;
We are not the form
but the Nonthingness out of which the form
becomes manifest;
We are not the past moment
but the Now which Rests ever-present;
We are not the coming event
but the Life which remains in Ourself constant.

The world is not apart from Us
but an extension of Us,
the other like a reflection in the mirror
or shadow on the wall;
thus Intubeing the Sole Reflecting
and Living Light Within all,
We Are the Prinicipal of Life…
and Light up Ourself in the innate Knowing
that remains One with man’s very Being.
