Radical Nonduality – The Divine Self (Part 1/2)

Self-Realization - The Divine Self of Nonduality

[It must be noted that the contextual awareness’ being described throughout are not literal, the words are irrelevant, they are only attempting to point to that which is entirely subjective, wordless, and completely indescribable. All attempts at wording that which is wordless is obviously meager as a substitute. Yet it may be helpful to offer inspiration for one to realize such radical truth for one self.] Ineffable Remembrance of Union     The overwhelming bliss at the initial experience of ‘returning home’ arises through truly discovering the fallacy of duality and personal control of the body/mind. This realization leads to …

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self (Part 3/3)

Transcending Duality and the Ego Self

Bypassing Temptation    When the sense of self has evolved to the recognition and embrace of the nonattached observer/witness, the level of conscious awareness has reached an extremely expanded state and therefore is completely immersed in unconditional love. This is because from this level of awareness there is only perfection abounding all around. However, it is worth noting that the temptations of ‘co-creator’ and manipulating the power of ‘advanced’ consciousness is seducing to the Luciferic (sophisticated, selfish ego) realms of force and control and represents many leaders of the world, false gurus, and endless media programming that seek to enslave the …

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self (Part 2/3)

Self-Realization, Liberation from maya's illusions - dawning of enlightenment

Understanding the Spiritual Ego      The sense and context of self then shifted to a spiritual self that still incorporated the mind but now it was ‘spiritual’. In other words it was the notion of being a human being having a spiritual experience rather than the truth of being a spiritual being having a human experience. At this point however the study of spirituality suddenly held more answers and seemed to be the source of eternal fulfillment and happiness. It became obvious that no matter how tamed and mastered the mind is, it is ultimately still limited and based …

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self (Part 1/3)

Liberation from maya's illusions of duality, Self-Realization

Waking Up Within the radical realization of ‘enlightenment’ the gift of consciousness is realized to be a part of an indescribable nonduality of Divinity that is truly ineffable and indescribable. Its stunning obviousness yet utter profound nature is all encompassing of one’s sense of reality and therefore the entire perspective and context of existence is forever changed. The realization of the true Self is infinitely formless and eternal as that which is all-present, all-knowing, all-powerful and the Creator and Source of All That Is (All that is Conscious). This Creator we are not separate from, hence the Father and I …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: The Mind and ‘Co-Creation’ (Part 3/3)

Letting go Transcending the mind, ego, and the attachment to control

The following are excerpts taken from The Liberated Lotus: Awakening Eternal Happiness regarding the nature of the mind, transcending the sophisticated intellectual and spiritual ego, and letting go of attachment to ‘co-creation’. How are we to comprehend this idea that the mind is impersonal and not an independent identity reflecting true reality? By realizing that all of the mind’s projections, editorializing, judgments, and sense of being ‘real’ as an independent existing entity are the illusion. Absolutely everything the mind ‘thinks’ is not coming from any personal-self identity but rather from a limited perspective and degree of awareness and is impersonal. …

Going Beyond the Mind - Self-Realization - transcending the mind's illusions

Transcending the Mind Seeking enlightenment through the pathway of the mind is extremely challenging due to the mind tending to be incredibly difficult to tame and required absolute concentration and focus above all else. During this time there were months spent in which every day was devoted to pure concentration and observing the mind and its incessant thinking. This was mainly accomplished through persistent meditative contemplation. Contemplation is simply the constant exercising of the spiritual will as the sense of concentrated focus throughout all daily activities. As one focuses completely upon a spiritual truth all learned opposition to it within …

Self-Realization - Transcending the Mind's prison

Transcending the Mind Although seeking liberation through the mind or transcendence through the heart/devotion lead to the same Truth, the path of the mind seems to be intellectually arduous and requires deep self-inquiry and constant observation of the mind’s misleading traps. The main obstacle that arises with embarking on the quest of enlightenment through mastery of the mind is the development and investment into the intellect as being valuable and reliable. As the intellect becomes strengthened, logic and reason dominate all aspects of life and the mind and its abilities seem to be the source of all power. However, quite …

Insight from Pain and Gain

Insight from Pain and Gain

A recent film that demonstrates an incredibly obvious example of the ego’s obsession with external fulfillment and endless desire is Pain and Gain directed by Michael Bay. The movie is rather absurd and hilarious at times because of just how far out it gets, all the while the reminder that it is in fact a true story. Throughout the film we get to see the very core of the ego’s belief systems revealed as the endless desire for ‘bigger, faster, stronger, and always more, more, more’. The ego is never satisfied and can never know contentment and in Pain and Gain this is …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: Awakening to the Salvation of Unconditional Love (Part 3/3)

The peace and joy of salvation - returning to our natural state of unconditional love

Salvation is Unconditional Love Unconditional love is the level of salvation, which is the freedom of being completely forgiven and liberated from all negativity/ignorance/’sin’, and its energy field is truly Heaven within. There is nothing that can possibly affect us and all is seen with an equal eye. Everything is lovable and everything is seen as divinely perfect, there is no guilt ever possible again. There can be no more resistance, all is forgiven, all is accepted, all is finally understood as the projection of Self. (Recall, how we perceive the world is only a projection of our self-perception) The …

What is unconditional love, awakening inner peace

The Mind The path of the mind (Advaita) can be sophisticated and cunning and requires constant psychological analysis and inner work regarding the nature of the ego and radical self-inquiry. The ego mind is the most cunning of all con artists and is in fact the greatest con there ever was. Simply put, the mind wants us to think that it is who we really are. It wants us to think that its thoughts are ‘our’ thoughts and that we in fact a dualistic ego. In Reality this is simply not true. The mind is a tool just like the …

Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: Awakening to Forgiveness, Self-Acceptance, and Courage (Part 2/2)

Accepting Divine Love inherent to our existence

Fear of the Unknown The primary obstacle that presents itself through the entire journey from this point on is fear of the unknown. When we choose to let go of attachment to the familiar (suffering) we then have to embrace the fear of the unknown that is beyond our attachments, even if it is ironically only gorgeous love and happiness that awaits us. It was noticed that while immersed in the darkness, fear wasn’t necessarily a concern because one lives in such constant fear that one has learned to love it and become addicted to it as a way of …

Awakening to courage and empowerment

Introduction With the final editing process for the book coming to a close, the vision for continuing to serve through this site is really exciting and I’m looking forward to devoting more time to writing here and honoring the thousands of hours I’ve been pouring into the book. I’m currently in Bali, Indonesia as I write and am inspired and eternally grateful to have finished the book here. As a final intuition regarding it yesterday I took out around 80 pages or so that I felt weren’t necessary to include in the book itself but instead to be shared here, which …

Life is Divine Synchronicity

All of life is synchronicity

[Inspired from a paper for my masters program] Everything is Connected If we consider synchronicity to be the intimate connection between our life experiences and the collective unconscious then we will inevitably realize that all of life is ultimately a continuous revelation of synchronicity. Carl Jung offered the world a stunning view into the collective unconscious by doing his best to make the symbolic nature of the unconscious visible to humanity. According to Jung, within the unconscious there are themes, archetypes, and symbols that present themselves to us to guide and align our lives according to that which we resonate …

Being Honest with Ourselves

Being Honest with Ourselves

With an understanding of projection let us now explore applications of this new found awareness. Since everything is purely subjective and within us this means that literally we are the only ones who decide how we feel in every moment. This means that all love, happiness, fulfillment, contentment, and satisfaction in life is purely up to us and only us. There is no thing or person who can actually make us happy, feel loved, or right. It is only our own choice. Out of inspiration provided from recent discussions with friends, the following may be useful guidance pertaining to remembering …
