How Do We Die While Living, And Meet God?


By practicing a living discipline of confronting, penetrating, understanding, and by that understanding coming from Within (spiritual discernment, which is to say, Spirit discerning), resolving through every thing-event of the day our attachment to and conflict with the ego/personality (contraries of human nature). This path may be called a “psychological death”, as we are letting go (ceasing to identify with) our object self (image/form) and seeing/being through (Before) the ego or conceptualized consciousness: this may also be referred to as the Way of the cross, for the crucifixion and death of the ego, even psychologically, represents an interior but living process of sublimation and transformation, fulfilled by the “awakened” psyche (soul) and terminating in a “rest” or release.

Thus we are not prejudging or projecting preconceptions onto the subject matter, but trusting completely in God, our innermost Being. Indeed, our Center of Awareness, Being Awareness in itself, is no longer the body but through the body, no longer the personality but through the personality (ego), in the spirit/space/mind/energy-consciousness as a Whole (Nonego). So Rests God in man (Christ Jesus)…not God as man or the personality. For when the person psychologically dies to himself as a separate entity in space and mind, God (Christ) comes Alive in (through) man (Jesus)!

How Does One Get Rid Of All One’s Beliefs?


By seeing (being aware) through one’s own ego/personality/selfhood that all personally based (ego-centered) beliefs and concepts are, at their root, insubstantial. One may see this by living meditation: the daily discipline of consciously confronting, penetrating, understanding and resolving any attachment to and conflict with the subject matter (thought/emotion/action) that one experiences.

Thus by turning In and stilling (centering) the mind, paying constant attention to what is actually going on at this very moment (seeing it as it is), one will “open up” the ego/personality. And then having rediscovered the spaciousness of soul, in choosing to drop the preconception of a separate self isolated in space, like a staring scope of spiritual discernment,  one will receive penetrating insights into our innate Being, as Such is our true Center (Ground). Character transformation follows automatically as one consciously realizes the self actually living/being what before the mind was only thinking (conceptualizing).

Therefore one doesn’t have to hold onto any beliefs (the past) per se, just live Life…as Such is ever-present: the Center of Awareness Being Awareness in itself (Ourself as a Whole) rather than the conceptual sensation/sensory perception of the thing-event. Thus does one Realize the self as selfless, that is to say, one’s Center is the very Quality (Nonessentiality) that Awareness itself Is (Intuperception/Nonsensory Perception) and not the thing-event outside. Indeed, living is believing!

How Does Body-Consciousness Or Egoism And Sense Of duality Vanish?


It’s not so much that body-consciousness or egoism vanish but that one, in realizing that we are not our personal thoughts, emotions, beliefs and experiences but Awareness in itself (pure Intelligence/Spirit), lets go of (ceasing to identify with) the literal sensation (solid sense of being a separate entity in space or mind) and sees/lives (from Within) through it.

But how does this happen? Actually, how (ego) has nothing to do with it. Rather, one follows the Way of the cross, the Eternal Principal of Life or Tao (Nonego), and by the grace of God, our innermost Being, becomes Aware that We (Living Jesus/Krishna/Buddha, etc) Are already there.

Everything we experience as being outside (other than) ourself as a Whole is a conceptualization of consciousness, and thus by seeing/being through the conceptual sensation instead of remaining stuck on it, one’s center of awareness is not the thing-event in space or in mind but the space/mind in itself (ourself as a Whole); that is to say, we intuconsciously (selflessly) Realize (Intuperception/Nonsensory Perception) Before (through) the concept or thing-event the basic, pure Intelligence that we Are and that everything Is (our innermost Being/Intubeing).

Thus duality, sensory perception and ego (literal perspective) are no longer a problem, as all are insubstantial (void) to the seer, whose Center (Intustate) of Awareness, remaining nonattached and holy indifferent, is everywhere nonliterally speaking and nowhere literally speaking. So Rests Energy-Consciousness (Intuconsciousness) without (through) an object: the One (Ourself as a Whole) purely Spiritual, transcendent/immanent, Intuconsciously Streaming Totality of Being (Nonliteral Perspective) that Is (God).

What Is My Perception Of The World Today?


The world is ego (duality/sensory perception/literal perspective), and that collective self (superego or great spook) is turning in on himself (on humanity, as perceived with the bodily senses). Think of the ego as a tunnel, and that we, as spirit, need to pass through (cease to identity with) it in order to come out in the Light (ourself as a Whole) at the other side, that is, to Be the Light! Right now we are stuck in the tunnel and everything seems dark: the worst in us is coming to the surface of our consciousness, and rather than confront it, and thus by seeing (living) through (letting go of ) the darkness (ego), in the process discovering the Living Light (Christ/Buddha/Krishna, etc)) already Within us–who Is Us–we want to escape self-examination,  failing to absorb the very energy that is our life.

It used to be that we could escape to the “new world”, but today that world has shrunk, and there’s nowhere to hide…except,  maybe,  in ourselves. Thus the collective ego is caught up in a psychological process of self-undoing, which must take place before the light of understanding can filter through the tunnel and come Into Us. So take heart, dear reader, keep your faith strong, and behind all the suffering that comes with holding onto a separate selfhood (ego-satan), feel the Loving Light of God Within coming closer, filling us with the Divine Presence (Stillness/Peace/Compassion) through the shadow (tunnel).

We were put on this earth to selflessly Realize Who and what we really Are (Our innermost Being and Liberation). I say selflessly because so long as we remain centered to the ego/personality/tunnel, which is literal and partial, we can’t know ourself as Nonliteral and Whole. You might say that materialism/egoism is our childhood and spirituality (Nonego) our adulthood. Thus it’s time for us (humanity collectively) to grow up! To accept living responsibility for our own behavior, and seeing (living) through it, step Into the Light!

What Is My Definition Of Enlightenment?


There are several ways of saying this, but they all come down to the same thing: knowing Who and what we really Are.

It seems that the most difficult thing for us to do is to just Be…ourself…Ourself as a Whole. From the moment we are born on earth, culture pressures us to conform to a preconceived image of who and what culture thinks we should be: to make us a product of cultural programing and packaging. This is the ego/personality/satan aspect in us trying to sell the product…to manipulate, control and exploit fate arbitrarily, even collectively, instead of being at one with it.

Yet, to see (live) and pass through our own ego–and its exploitation of the environment (including everyone in it)–thus automatically transmuting the energy that is our life from literal to nonliteral, from material to spiritual, from personal to intupersonal, is to Be Enlightenment (understanding Awareness)…to Be (live) in the ever-present (Nonego), Being (living) as the most Natural, Spontaneous Flow that is Life in itself (Ourself). For in Knowing Who and what we really Are, we are no longer centered (caught up) in the thing, in the past (ego), in sensory perception and duality, but remain Free through the same,  as our innermost Being Is without any attachment to, or conflict with, culture (the world outside).

Thus Enlightenment is the ability to see (intusee) what has always been there.

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


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?


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.

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


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)!

Are We Simply Our Experiences Or Is There A Nonactual Essence Of Self Untouched By External Events?


The ultimate Reality (We) may be said to Be the basic, pure Intelligence (Center/Ground of Awareness/Intuconsciousness) that Nonexists (existence as a Whole) Before (through) duality, sensory perception and ego (literal perspective). That is to say, Suchness just Is…Is the Totality of Being (Intubeing): the Form that is Formless, the Self that is Selfless, the Creator (Creating) of the universe, yet who is not the universe, literally speaking. Suchness, then, is not any man in the sky, supernatural entity or projection/sensation of the mind–but mind, sound, light, space, consciousness (or whatever name you prefer) in Ourself as a Whole–Intubeing most Natural, Spiritual, Spontaneous (the Eternal Flow).

Thus Stillness Moves, and Being Stillness in itself, in Ourself as a Whole, Suchness Sees/Lives/Breathes, nonliterally speaking. Therefore, as the ultimate Center of Being Rests wholly Within ourself, to Know Such is to enter fully Into Being, Into Ourself as a Whole (understanding Awareness) and See/Live/Breathe Suchness through whatever is conceptualized and experienced. Thus Intubeing Rests Before both the mental and material conceptualization (image/form) of being, Before (through) the body/personality or ego, as Suchness remains Nonsensory (Nonego/Nonliteral Perspective). Indeed, Suchness requires the individual psyche (soul) to give up the attachment to its own image life (separate existence) out of Love for Suchness (God) that one may selflessly Realize (just Be) our innermost Being, whose Nature Is Love. Such is the soul-purpose for human existence: to Be the Knowing (Creating) that Is Who and what We Are (Intubeing).

The path offered here is the Way of the cross: the cross is our own psyche, and the Way is right through the psyche (soul)! Thus we are the means and We Are the goal, so to speak. The beginning and the ending of all things. But the ultimate We Rests even Before that.

So, by remaining literal-minded we can never really know Before that, but by living Jesus, that is, by consciously confronting, penetrating, understanding, and by that understanding Awareness (spiritual discernment or Spirit discerning), resolving our psyches of their attachment to and conflict with any thing-event of the day, we may fulfill the Way through our own individual existences on this earth. Therefore the true gospel remains a living gospel, not a particular historical event (or piece of information) happening only to a particular person in the past. Living (Christ) Jesus, the Principal of Life (the Tao/Word/ Son of God), Rests potentially Within (through) each one of us, and remains Ourself as a Whole (Intuconsciousness)!

Where Is Being?


Being in itself (ourself as a Whole) Is Before (greater than) experiencing, Before what is called duality/sensory perception/ego. For in knowing the Whole (the One) to be greater than the part, is not the Whole of you More (Before) than any image, form or concept of yourself? Just as Consciousness is greater than any content of consciousness, Mind greater than any projection/sensation of mind, Truth greater than any context of truth, Space (Spirit) greater than any object in and of space, the unified Field greater than any particle-wave in and of the field?

The Totality of Being (Intubeing) Is without beginning or ending and thus, like an uncarved Block, not outside of us–but wholly Within (everywhere nonliterally speaking and nowhere literally speaking)–Being Nonliteral, purely Spiritual (Nonego). So Breathes our innermost Being…who just Is.
