04:52
imagination we left that we agreed we’re
04:54
gonna leave that outside as well
04:55
what is imaginary whatever you need to
04:58
visualize now we can leave that out just
05:01
you’re sober sober being so please you
05:06
can say
05:20
see she’s got thinking nice thinking
05:24
eyes like this he’s looking looking
05:28
still there’s still a sense of something
05:31
looking for that thing which you’re
05:33
pointing to I have told you now if you
05:36
forget about this don’t have any image
05:39
about what I’m talking to about this was
05:41
a another exercise I gave you leave
05:43
everything even did the thing you think
05:46
I’m talking about leave that also okay
05:50
fair enough fair chance so be totally
05:54
empty of any projection any kind of any
05:57
kind of intellectual or imaginary
06:01
construction just leave it now and you
06:04
must be able to find or discover to tell
06:07
me what remains now is it a black hole
06:11
what remain
06:26
is it experience to be too difficult
06:28
this too difficult question is it too
06:31
difficult the question it’s just
06:34
something I can’t quite put into words
06:38
something you cannot put into words mean
06:45
you cannot even put it into thought even
06:54
how do you feel do you feel like you’re
06:56
missing something really important yeah
07:01
is it a disappointing discovery no keep
07:12
being with it keep being in it just keep
07:15
being with this okay it’s nothing just
07:17
be here okay you say I don’t feel
07:25
anything is particularly missing nothing
07:27
of value is missing you have any
07:32
problems yeah only when the mind thinks
07:37
it needs to find something but that
07:39
seemed yes yeah
07:41
something else
07:52
do you want something more than this
07:54
it’s not tell me what you want I mean
07:57
this would this be enough as it is but
07:59
now or do you want something what do you
08:02
want from here what’s what’s really
08:04
missing be honest we have been honest I
08:09
guess there’s still there’s remains some
08:12
sense of wanting to recognize that yes
08:18
or thinking that I’ve not yet recognized
08:22
that but you’re in the recognition of it
08:28
now can you try to describe it a little
08:36
bit can it be described
08:45
supposing I was to tell you that this is
08:49
yourself
08:58
supposing I was to take the risk and say
09:00
listen guys yourself would it be a
09:09
horrible news
09:16
okay I take it back don’t say it is
09:19
yourself
09:24
remember from here everything that is
09:27
perceivable every taste is perceived
09:31
look look in this look in this where did
09:36
this begin where could it possibly begin
09:42
this does it have a beginning where can
09:51
it end this where can it end have end
10:03
are you with me I can we can we can call
10:05
it a day no if it’s all changes I’m
10:07
going to end oh thank you well feedback
10:12
I got feedback okay
10:13
it cannot end okay you say cannot end
10:17
cannot begin mmm can it die do you think
10:24
you’re capable of answer a question like
10:25
this this that we’re we’re looking at
10:28
and from and in and through can it die
10:36
are you speculating or can you stand
10:39
with what you’re seeing
10:41
do you trust what you’re seeing and
10:43
experiencing can is it trustworthy or
10:47
are we speculating yeah I have taken
10:52
away the speculative side of your mind
10:54
so let’s leave all the all the the
10:57
mental conjuring our aside for a moment
11:00
imagining abilities we know you can
11:03
imagine but we don’t want imagining we
11:05
don’t want any visualization just sober
11:08
seeing okay it’s still be here it’s
11:17
still me it’s still you here can I ask
11:22
you another question
11:23
can it fade whatever this is who is on
11:29
board with what I’m speaking waters very
11:32
good that’s very good can it fade
11:38
meaning that it you know okay it’s lunch
11:42
time okay lunch Oh what happened to that
11:44
thing oh it’s gone never mind
11:46
can it fade so then there’s no need to
11:53
look for anything are you asking or are
11:57
you
11:58
are you asking or are you affirming if
12:07
I’m here does it have a particular
12:12
religion this this thing yeah
12:18
is it male or female does it have a
12:25
color
12:33
oh so when the mind dances back in again
12:36
the mind can dance in I mean where else
12:38
can the mine appear in a partner in the
12:42
field of view the mind is only a tourist
12:45
seize on it coming hello I you know but
12:48
it’s seen when you see something suppose
12:52
you are here your name is John and then
12:54
I introduce you to 15 people James
12:57
Patrick blah blah blah blah do you
12:59
forget your tongue
13:01
suppose your name is John I said John I
13:04
have some friends here this is George
13:06
this is Philip this is Patrick this is
13:08
Amy this is Joanna this is so-and-so and
13:11
I’m sorry this is you I’m sorry I got
13:14
confused I don’t know who I am anymore
13:15
no you don’t forget who you are even if
13:19
you were introduced to a billion people
13:20
you don’t forget who you are so if the
13:23
mind comes in can it makes you forget
13:26
that you are this I said something and I
13:31
would like to share it with you because
13:33
it’s coming up now I said before I am I
13:38
am before the idea that I could forget
13:46
myself or that I need to remember myself
13:51
was alliant and was believed again I am
13:59
before the idea arose that I could
14:03
forget myself or that I needed to
14:06
remember myself was believed or lands
14:12
this is before any thought any idea came
14:18
that it was hidden and something had to
14:24
find it
14:27
you are it it is you why this feels so
14:34
difficult to to accept is because we
14:40
were as manifested as manifested forms
14:45
of consciousness we were compelled by
14:48
some power to identify ourselves with
14:51
this particular body in fact when the
14:56
mother of your mother gave birth to you
14:58
this was not the body she gave birth to
15:00
in fact she couldn’t give her birth to
15:03
her body so big
15:04
okay it was a tiny thing okay and that
15:08
tiny thing has keeps met
15:10
metamorphosizing in two different shapes
15:12
and and became what it is at the present
15:15
today it looks like this another two
15:19
years it will look like something a
15:20
little bit more is it so it’s always
15:22
changing it’s always changing when your
15:27
parents were expecting you were they
15:30
expecting you particularly didn’t know
15:34
oh yeah she’s gonna come and she’s gonna
15:36
have this personality and when she they
15:38
don’t know anything and neither do you
15:41
you’re simply unfolding just unfolding
15:45
okay something is unfolding called you
15:48
called you
15:49
and so this push this this come
15:58
compulsion to identify with the body and
16:02
with the conditioning that arose in the
16:05
place where the body was born became an
16:08
identity a secondary identity that
16:11
called George or Susan or whatever it is
16:13
name but underneath the name George Oh
16:17
Susan is I am consciousness actually I
16:21
is everybody’s name I is everybody’s
16:26
name I am is everybody’s name and I am
16:30
is also called a name of God
16:36
but nobody was christened by their
16:40
parents as this child will be called I
16:42
am
16:49
I am means consciousness I John means I
16:55
person and I person is supported by I
17:00
consciousness but the I person has not
17:05
understood that it is I consciousness
17:07
and I person so the idea we have of who
17:14
we are is suffering from an experiencing
17:18
the ideas it has about itself not an
17:23
easy thing to swallow let’s come back to
17:28
this place as it moved can it move can
17:38
it leave meaning that it must leave to
17:43
arrive at some place it is not can is
17:47
there any space left where it is not so
17:52
that it can travel – yes you didn’t
17:55
realize you could answer such profound
17:57
questions did you you didn’t realize you
18:02
could answer such profound questions and
18:05
why can you answer such profound
18:07
questions because it is your experience
18:14
did you go to the University to study
18:16
this know you are there are a few
18:20
minutes and you can answer I don’t hear
18:24
anyone saying I think you’re saying no
18:28
it cannot fade can it expand
18:38
you’re not ready for that question yeah
18:41
there is sometimes a sense of expansion
18:44
that appears within it okay let me tell
18:46
you where the expansion comes from that
18:49
which is I call it and many people call
18:53
it the absolute awareness self the
18:57
principles of existence itself it has no
19:04
story
19:04
it is beyond quality yet it is the
19:07
source or the womb of all that manifest
19:13
manifest means something as a shape a
19:16
form the size and sentient manifestation
19:24
means it has a shape form size and
19:27
intelligence it can think that same what
19:33
is Ness as manifested true what you may
19:39
call consciousness which is the dynamic
19:42
aspect of itself have I gone too far or
19:46
I’m okay I’m okay
19:47
okay good so it’s manifest through this
19:51
dynamic quality if itself which is what
19:56
I call the fluid consciousness and
19:57
through this consciousness comes the
20:00
realm of knowing of diversity of duality
20:03
of multiplicity it wanted to taste all
20:07
the tastes of the manifest world okay
20:11
it is this consciousness that is
20:14
announcing itself as the vibration I am
20:18
I am is that this i am-ness also it is
20:24
neither male nor female it has no
20:26
religion has no belief system it has
20:28
doesn’t have a mindset it is pure
20:30
consciousness but it’s a dynamic
20:32
consciousness
20:33
I say dynamic consciousness because this
20:37
consciousness can further where you may
20:41
say extend itself to the idea I am this
20:45
body I am this person it can take on
20:47
that belief
20:47
and then it it believes its ideas into
20:53
into reality may become experiential for
20:57
it so this is what we call a person it
21:02
is spirituality means the shift from
21:09
personhood to presence from person to
21:14
presence it is the person is still
21:17
consciousness but it is consciousness
21:19
with lots of quality lots of
21:23
idiosyncrasies lots of it is a very very
21:27
chaotic realm and for a while the
21:31
consciousness enjoys the sense of
21:33
autonomy and privacy in that expression
21:36
but at a certain point that expression
21:39
is also compelled to evolve and the
21:42
evolution of the person is from person
21:46
to presence presence again as I said it
21:51
is the pure consciousness like the lens
21:55
through which all things are seen that
22:00
that is the aim of most forms of
22:03
spirituality is to get back to the place
22:06
of the i am-ness it is the pure place
22:09
okay how it does that it must transcend
22:13
the dream state whereby it believes it
22:17
is a person just listen to me right now
22:19
don’t make any notes you don’t have
22:21
making notes because when I show you
22:24
again when you see where you are and
22:26
rest in what you are it will confirm my
22:29
words in you okay so we don’t have to
22:32
treat it like we’re in classroom or
22:34
something just let me ramble on for a
22:36
little bit okay so this consciousness
22:40
this dreaming itself as a person has got
22:43
to wake up and you have heard the term
22:45
wake up waking up is another name we
22:49
call sometimes enlightenment or
22:52
self-realization or moksha or liberation
22:56
whatever okay that happens when the
22:59
consciousness that bill
23:01
itself to be merely a person come to
23:04
realize that it is consciousness and
23:07
that the person is only a mask or a
23:10
dream it’s something about itself I just
23:13
let me just say this thing okay let me
23:16
give you in a picture form okay let’s
23:20
say there’s a sense of the person which
23:22
I say becomes the presence it’s not like
23:28
the person object put over here become
23:30
presence it’s more like if you can
23:33
imagine a snake you can say the snake is
23:39
the head is in the garden but the tail
23:43
is still in the room
23:44
can we give an example at this so it’s
23:47
not completely safe yet it’s mostly out
23:51
but it’s not completely out does that
23:53
make sense so don’t start celebrating
23:57
yet the snake the tail is still in the
24:01
room okay so it has to come completely
24:04
out let’s say that this is a good snake
24:06
now this is a snake of consciousness the
24:13
person there’s no such thing as just a
24:16
person by itself it is a mixture of
24:19
personalized thought combined mostly
24:24
with consciousness the more that it is
24:27
in consciousness the more beautiful the
24:31
life become the more it goes to person
24:34
the more it is thinking and worrying and
24:37
getting depressed and this type of thing
24:39
and having lots of imagination and lots
24:42
of that type of stuff okay so this
24:44
changing over from person to presence
24:48
the journey called spirituality is more
24:51
like the snake that’s moving more into
24:54
consciousness but the tail it the person
24:58
is still there so as it moves more fully
25:01
into consciousness the the end then the
25:05
person is thinning away until fully it
25:08
reaches the state of consciousness and
25:11
the person
25:12
it becomes an old dream and that is the
25:15
state we call the first stages of the
25:19
realization of the self what I point you
25:23
to right now when you are answering say
25:26
yes it cannot die it cannot it cannot it
25:30
wasn’t born it doesn’t change where are
25:32
you looking from you’re looking from the
25:35
place of consciousness and that’s why as
25:38
consciousness you how you could answer
25:40
that question you couldn’t answer it
25:42
before when you are in the state of
25:44
person you follow that is not and that’s
25:49
just in the space of in one hour you
25:54
have shifted from living and looking
25:57
from the perspective of a person until
26:01
you now you’re speaking with the
26:02
confidence of consciousness and you’re
26:05
answering questions that scientists are
26:07
still troubled about and you are
26:09
speaking directly from it
26:18
what more do we have to do now
26:30
one example multiplied by two thousand
26:34
times is it possible one example x two
26:40
thousand if two thousand forms of
26:47
consciousness understood this
26:49
experientially you won’t understand what
26:53
kind of impact that has in life one
26:58
Buddha made so much difference in the
27:00
world one Christ made so much difference
27:03
in the world they understood this from
27:05
inside the experience itself you are
27:08
beginning to understand this from the
27:09
inside the experience itself
27:12
you started to ask yeah you’re speaking
27:17
as person now you’re speaking as
27:19
consciousness
27:25
too good to be true
27:33
you must become the proof that God
27:37
exists not the books
27:42
you are the living book
27:50
and this book is the greatest book all
27:55
the pages are empty only the title is I
27:58
am
28:09
thank you thank you
28:25
