In his “live” podcast this morning, Deepak Chopra, “The freedom of not being a Person.” Present at the heart of a person to be in love to the full truth is the dignity of being free.
“The dimensionless reality, cosmic consciousness, God, the dimensionless existence is not nonexistence it is just the immeasurable existence of all that is to be that is and that was. With just time and space would be no experience, which is also what we call experience. Reality is what experience comes from and that which reality comes from and is made. Experiencing itself as itself. The original body mind. All of these objects in space that is perceiving these objects, what would be left if you took it all out including yourself. Nothing would be left except space and time. The only way the self of the universe can know itself is by experiencing itself as the universe. The one observer, me, the individual body mind and also the other. There are many modalities of observation, for instance to observe from the experience of being a tiger or the bird is different than yours or mine. There are many varieties of you as the observer.”
“Without it would be no experience. No reality. The self-interaction as a dimensionless being as me and the other knows itself as experiencing itself as the universe, fundamentally the one observer. Many objects perceive the self-organization of a non-local eternal being into all beings and all modalities. I AM that, all of this is that and that alone is. I AM the universe. The “I” is not a person, but the experience, awareness in which the person arises and subsides with the experience into the now.”
Meditation is one way to sit and become very sensitive to the state of no self. Some people find this state difficult to get into because of watching television gives the observer a different point of view. Our conditioning, cultural and social filters get in the way and distorts. To be both teacher and the student, to be a light unto your own self, to think for your own self.
“When you know you are not a person, but innumerable persons arising and subsiding. You are the experience in which that is happening. So you come back to you. People run around trying to find God and all that is, and the answer to their life and death questions when the answer has been you all along.”
You are left with yourself. There is no form of resistance. That is the very place you need to be right now if you are serious. If you are serious, then you are not looking to any one authority or anyone for help. You are free to discover the adventure is yours by way of freedom. You are free from the ground up, from your center of being. What’s so great about that? Is that there is no fear. No fear to love. No fear to surrender to love. And that is a soul who is capable of great love.
The heart wants what it wants. It wants to learn about itself. We are constantly flowing beings constantly changing. What matters not is the dead authority we put in charge yesterday. Because today we will have new opinions, ideas and knowledge, never resting actual awareness. To be free of all the previous collections of structure and stuff is to die to it all day after day. Always young full of vim and vigor and passion.
From this state where you learn and observe with loads of awareness about what is going in your inner awareness without correcting it or judging it and telling it what it should be. Because the minute you start correcting it and telling it what to do or what is right or what is wrong you have created a authority, a censor again. To be sensitive to yourself and to the world outside you, because that world outside you is you. This sensitivity is the highest form of intelligence. When the mind is quiet and the brain is quiet that is full awareness. The brain is completely awake and there is no fragmentation, no separation and no duality. Intelligence belongs to no one, it is whole and immaculate according to Krishnamurti. “We” are not, only intelligence acts. Seeing choicelessly is the action of love.
Let’s begin today as of today only existed. No more yesterday. All is fresh and all is new.
