This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Absence of Awareness

Truth makes a person look within. All sorts of things arise when there’s awareness of this happening. But when there’s absence of awareness the mind becomes agitated and creates a lie to avoid this truth…

It’s unfortunate, but most people live a life consumed by lies more so than truth. They believe they’re living by truth, but upon further investigation this fallacy can be seen. On the outside the lies seem so much better and this is what keeps a person locked into them, but this is only because your conditioning makes the lies seem better. The truth makes you look at yourself; all sorts of things arise when this happens. Without this understanding truth will be avoided as if it was a plague. Becoming aware of the lies so truth can be revealed is essential in understanding yourself. Sit with the assumption that you will sit in stillness and watch how little stillness there is. Just sit and be with whatever’s there, that’s where truth is. When the mind isn’t looking for anything, truth arises.

The absence of awareness causes the mind to create lies. Seeing this absence is when the mind settles. This doesn’t mean you don’t make changes, but when changes aren’t needed that’s when the mind settles. This is why I don’t share about positive versus negative, because if it’s negative and you want something positive, it’s no different than if you’re positive and you don’t want anything negative. An agitated mind is a mind that needs things to be a certain way whether it’s positive or negative. The absence of awareness is the lie. Truth arises when nothing needs to be different. Your mind will settle when life is accepted as it is, positive, negative, or indifferent…
