The Awakened Mind


How can I attain awakening?

It's in the simple process of discovering how everything is Mind. Look in your experience how everything has awareness as its basis. It's not the discovery of something new. It is seeing clearly after the lenses of perception have been cleansed. Cleansed of what? 

The suffering of others


Question: 

I finally woke up through a period of egoic suffering. A dark night of the soul, so to speak. Since, I have felt almost nothing but effortless and profound peace. I see so much suffering around me, almost no physical suffering, but the same mental anguish that finally dissolved the illusion for me.

A question that I have; given that suffering can be (and was for me) such a profound teacher, how do you decide when to try to help and do something about it? With physical suffering it's easy, I intervene without hesitation. Egoic anguish however, I'm hesitant to help.

Mind-Self

Today I am. Clarity in not knowing.

I don't know who or what, yet I am. 

Not in me, not in you, not in it. I am nowhere to be found. 

Yet always present. 

Perspectives onto myself. Including the perspective. That I am.

I am perspective, one second real, next second unreal.

How do perspectives exist though? Do I exist?

A perspective from which "I" do not exist, that certainly is true.

A perspective from which "I" do exist, that idea certainly is true.

One second on, and off the next. But who makes the switch?

What is true regardless of ideas? 

What is prior to concepts?

Concepts and ideas come and go, yet I remain. 

Pure potential.
