Your Own Light

It’s the selfish view of satisfying “I” that keeps you from the vision of seeing your own light. This vision of light only occurs when your view comes from looking inward…

Although no one is more special than another in this existence, there are some who do see things vastly different than most; this happens by looking inward. I wouldn’t say some as chosen, but it is a fact some are simply more inclined to not attach to a selfish view which allows for a vision of light than if you are in the grip of a mind based “I” view. The two existences I’ve experienced are vastly different, one was selfish where there was much self created suffering, the other which is the one I’m living now is a view of light; non attachment. The differences in the two views is one creates suffering and is done in unconscious darkness and the other the one today is lived in awareness of light. Today the view is as it is because the selfish distractions don’t control as much as they once did; there is still conditioning, but there is also light.

The vision of your own light occurs as a by product of awareness and as the selfish view is replaced it opens up space to allow you to see your own light. This opening is directly linked to the letting go of “I”. It’s the “I” that attaches and it’s the cause of all suffering. Ever so slowing when one begins to look inward the distractions of “I” fall away. To me this is the light that was revealed to the great mystic’s which people considered special, but all they did was see their own light. This light is available to everyone, but one will have to overcome the selfish view that keeps you distracted from the vision of your own light and it will only be seen when you begin to look inward…

What’s Allowed In

When the “I want more” conditioning isn’t controlling what’s allowed in, there’s much more peace in life, but this isn’t because peace is allowed in, it’s because nonsense isn’t allowed in so this naturally allows for there to be peace…

Much goes on in day to day living and for the most part there’s no control over what happens. Even if there was, with the way the Conditioned Mind has been developed, it wouldn’t change the way things are. The first thing that has to happen for the possibility of any change to take place is you have to understand what’s being allowed in to shape your day to day, even moment to moment existence. Much is viewed throughout the day, but it’s mostly allowed in through the default setting of the conditioning in place. It’s allowed in, but it’s not done with any sense of awareness so it leads you to being controlled. There’s no choice in this until there is, but unfortunately until there is you will allow in things that aren’t beneficial and hence if it’s not beneficial it will cause much trouble and suffering.

Think about the things that are attached to, the list is basically endless, the problem with this is not much that’s grabbed is beneficial. We are a species that has lost its way and it’s because of what we allow in. There is a nothingness to life that has to be seen so you can decipher if what your conditioning allows in is beneficial or not. A lot was allowed in for many years that I thought was beneficial, but in truth it kept in bondage to the “I want more” conditioning. I always wanted more so that’s what was allowed in, but it was never enough. Today it’s much different because to a large degree the “I want more” conditioning isn’t controlling what’s allowed in. Because of this there’s much more peace, but this isn’t because peace is allowed in, it’s because nonsense isn’t allowed in so this naturally allows for there to be peace…

Unconscious Wanting

The conditioned mind creates a view based in unconscious wanting. It’s difficult to break this because most of what is done reinforces this unconsciousness; a conscious mind is simply aware of awareness…

Life’s struggles has nothing to do with life, it’s an unconscious view based in the world of wanting that cause struggles, and this is because this view is controlled by the Conditioned Mind. When unconscious wanting  is fulfilled and things are going your way there’s not much of a struggle; life is considered good. When things are going as wanted what causes your struggles is pushed aside. When this is done it makes the base of life centered in unconscious wanting and you will get pulled around by the Conditioned Mind like a puppet on a string.

The more this occurs the more suffering there will be in your life. Sometimes it’s very subtle, but it’s there. As a matter of fact even if you’re not aware of being controlled by unconscious wanting, it still produces suffering. The suffering doesn’t occur because you don’t get your way, it occurs just by being in a state where the unconscious conditioned mind is in control.

The less unconscious wanting of what you want when you want it is the base of your view, the less you struggle with yourself and with life; this is simply because unconscious wanting isn’t in control. When you’re unaware of this the Conditioned Mind creates chaos by unconsciously wanting; there’s immense suffering in this unawareness. Practice being in a space of no mind, with no mind there is no unconscious wanting. When you don’t have unconscious wanting you don’t need and when you don’t need, you don’t create delusions that cause suffering; a free mind is free because there’s no unconscious wanting…

Awareness Mind State

Life will always be life and it will always be as it is, but you don’t have to be stuck in a mind state where you’re not aware of what’s actually happening…

To be aware is to be non reacting in the present moment to what’s happening while it is happening. Anything that happens in life doesn’t have any specific effect on a person, it’s effect is directly linked to the conditioning that the person has in place; this is why one reacts to what happens the way they do. Reactions are in place for everyone, they just manifest in different ways. The quality of how aware one is of what’s happening while it’s happening determines how one reacts to it. Before something occurs there’s the space of stillness that it arises from, so if you’re already in an unconscious state of anger, when the next thing arises it’s immediately labeled with anger. If you’re in an awareness state of quietness and the same thing takes place, the reaction to it will be much different. The key here is to pay attention to things that are beneficial and conducive to your well being; this is not always easy to see because of the conditioning. Many of your reactions aren’t really beneficial or conducive to your well being, but they’re done anyway because that’s what’s in place. Until there’s awareness of this these reactions will be repeated over and over.

You are always in the present moment whether you‘re aware of it or not. When you’re not aware this is when what arises controls you. It’s one of the reasons it’s said, “nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts” because your thoughts control you as if you were a puppet on a string. Breaking free of this control is more of a mindset than effort, it’s being mindful of awareness aware of awareness. Stillness of each moment is where everything arises from so if your in harmony with this, what arises will have less of an effect on you. Life is life and it will be as it is, but you don’t have to be stuck in a state of non beneficial reactions because you’re not aware of what’s actually happening…

Delusions Function Podcast

This is the most recent episode of my podcast: Delusions Function  https://anchor.fm/michael-cupo/episodes/Delusions-Function-eaug80

Universal Heart of Unity

The main block to humanity’s unity is our humanness is put first so we’re being controlled by our thoughts. When awareness is put first there’s a connection to the universal heart of unity…

Living strictly from the thought (human) realm is the main reason why there‘s constant seeking and why we‘re disconnected from each other and the universal heart of unity. With putting being human first, you live through thought so there has to be a disconnect from the awareness of the universal heart of unity; thoughts separate, awareness (the heart) unites. Our humanness is a direct disconnect from each other when it’s put first because of its base (“I” sensed). The universal heart of unity doesn’t ever need, therefore when awareness is put first the “I” sense loses its control.

When awareness is put first a connection to all of life occurs, not through thought, but through the universal heart of unity. The main dilemma in our society is people are putting their humanness first and are being controlled by their thoughts. Just follow the news and see this for yourself. It’s nothing more than human desires being put before awareness.

The 12 Steps to Freedom are from my book “It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: Your Are Not Your Thoughts” They offer the possibility of becoming the awareness aware of awareness so life may be lived from the universal heart of having a human experience. They are offered for free on my website  http://www.mondayinyourmind.com Use this tool and develop this awareness or not, that’s the choice, and the results of that choice will be to either remain in the control of the Conditioned Mind or to break free of its diabolical grip…
