A Process of Love

If you truly want to live a life of love that’s a benefits to all beings you will have to examine the tools you are using in your process called life. Apple trees can only produce apples…

The reason we are not a world of love where we live our life to benefit each other is because the process of love isn’t being followed because we are using tools which divert us from the final result of our processes true nature, which is to love. To me, this is why the world is as it is because of the breakdown in our process to love. Through the Conditioned Mind we use all kinds of diversions that don’t follow the process to love. We use tools that are self serving so we live in a self serving world. This has to happen. Remember apple trees can only produce apples. If you truly want to live a life of love that’s a benefits to all beings you will have to examine the tools you are using in the process called life. Many great teachers have left us the precise tools to use so our process is one of love, but they aren’t being used by many people. All you need to understand this is to take a long hard look at the world.

You will know if you are using the correct tools by the results of your life. Understand this, it is the tools that are used that allow the process to be followed and make the results what they are going to be. You are a result of the process. Life is the process, you are the result. The process of life would still continue even if you weren’t here; every living thing is a part of life’s process, there are no individual ones. We are all part of the whole, it just reflects as individuality, but make no mistake the whole is affected…

Comparing Beliefs

A belief is a made up story as you compare life with and without it and because of your conditioning the belief is attached to that life is better with the made up story…

When I compare me to you it instantly separates us, and even when I compare me to me this causes the same separation. There is no you and me unless I compare us just as there isn’t an old me and a new me. Granted twelve years ago my thinking shifted dramatically, but I was and will always be the same me; this is how it is when there isn’t a comparison formed from the Conditioned Mind. Mostly everything that is done is a comparison. Beliefs are used in this way. A belief is a story made up as life is compared with and without this storied belief and because of your conditioning you’re made to believe by your own mind that life is better with this story.

Instead of being with the suchness of your life, there’s’ always a comparison. Comparing the thinking of years ago to now, comparing ourselves to others, comparing situations of how it is and how it’s wanted, comparing the over weight me and skinnier me, comparing the younger me to the me of today, comparing the world way back when to the way it is now, comparing my beliefs to your beliefs, my God to your God, and on and on. You see, there’s truly nothing to compare to, but this comparing is so subtle that most people don’t even realize it’s being done. If some discipline isn’t developed so the mind settles to see the suchness of life, the story of comparisons will continue all the way up until the day when it’s time to go to the next realm, only there won’t be any comparing it to this realm…

The Process of Life

The natural process of life is to love. This is its natural state, but the final result of any process can only be determined by the tools used during the process…

Here is the simplicity of what we are up against in the process of life. Everything that happens is a process, whether there is awareness of this or not. Without discipline the Conditioned Mind will not allow the use of tools that makes the process beneficial. Let’s examine the process of getting a magazine out to the consumer. If one part of it breaks down the magazine will not be available for the consumer to buy and that means the process has failed. If a different process is followed, but not one that gets the magazine into the hands of the consumer, this is not a process that’s beneficial to the magazine company. From the writer of the stories, the person who delivers the magazines, and to the person who sells the magazines, if the process is deviated from at any point the end result will not be what’s the best way to get the magazines to the consumer.

This is also the same process to live our life. Every process has a final result that will be reached and it will be determined on the type of tools used. At birth our process begins, as we live our life and develop tools, those tools determine if the process is beneficial. The more the tools used are of a selfish nature the more our process is of a selfish nature, which manifest as a selfish results; this has to happen. If one person doesn’t take care of their responsibility in the process, a beneficial result isn’t reached. This is why the world is as it is. Everyone thinks their process is right, but since we aren’t all using tools that produce beneficial results the entire process of life breaks down. There is no way around this. So ask yourself what tools do you use and are those tools making your process one that’s self serving or one that’s beneficial to all beings. After all life’s process is of love and that’s its natural state, but it’s because we are not using the tools to follow this process that the world is as it is…

Seeing the Light

When you understand just how conditioned you really are, it will probably your first experience of seeing truth. Only then you will have the possibility of awakening and seeing the light provided by the Universe…

The Conditioned Mind is so subtle very few people know it’s even in place. I will say because of this the world is not on a course to become a world based in love, but whose to say that’s how it’s suppose to be. Even though this is what the great mystic’s spoke of and this is the message that most people who have gone deeper, including myself, try to convey, no one knows for sure. 

No one knows if the world will change before humans destroy it; it‘s only through the Conditioned Mind that this is happening anyway. Maybe it’s suppose to be this way, maybe not, but a person can only change themselves and that will occur if they’re fortunate enough to realize how conditioned they really are. Look at the smugness of your own conditioning before you point the finger at someone else. After all when you point one finger at another there are three pointing back at you; take the log out of your eye before you point out the speck in someone else’s. The way we are conditioned as a species is our dilemma, this is a stark fact and until this changes nothing will change, but fret not because if you come to realize this you will understand “It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts”. When you see this truth you will understand how conditioned you really are. Only then you will have the possibility of awakening and seeing the light, not a conditioned mind light, but a light provided by the Universe…

Activated Mind Patterns

Nothing ever changes until it’s understood what truly needs changing. Until a dog realizes that it is its own tail that it is chasing, the chasing will never end…

The one thing that needs to be established to understand where the base of my posting are derived from is what a conditioned mind pattern is and how it is at the root of everything you do. Without this understanding it will be very difficult to get to the core of your self created suffering.

A conditioned mind pattern will not activate on it’s own, something has to get it started. Whether that something is a person, place, or thing doesn’t matter, that it has been activated is what’s important. Because of ignorance most people have no resistance to stop this; when the activation starts it is nearly impossible to stop. Once you fully understand this it becomes apparent that the key to your freedom is to prevent the activation; by reconditioning your mind the activation is never made. This is something that has to be developed so the mind patterns in place can be eliminated.

In the beginning as you develop an awareness of what a mind pattern is and when it becomes activated you’ll need all your resolve to stop this and it will probably not be enough. As you become more aware of what activates them it takes less effort to stop it. Eventually resistance is unnecessary because you aren’t allowing people, places, and things to control you. It’s imperative to understanding it’s your own mind that’s the activator and a mind made conditioned pattern is what allows the activation. Slowly through the practice of quietness you will learn at first to not allow anything to control you and then eventually you will not allow your mind patterns to activate. You have to truly understand this before you can stop activating the mind patterns. It’s through ignorance that they’re activated, but through practice you will become more and more aware of your conditioned mind patterns. So understand this; nothing can control you unless you allow it and in time with the right practice your mind patterns just may stop being activated…

Coping Tools

We all develop tools that are used to cope with life. Either they will be tools that put you on a collision course with life or they will be tools that put you in harmony with it…

After much investigation I found out the reason why my life was the way it was prior to twelve years ago and why it’s no longer like this. It all has to do with the tools that were developed at a very young age to cope with life. These defense mechanisms that are used are our developed tools. Every reaction in life is the way it is because of the tools that are developed, and they automatically arise because of the Conditioned Mind when the conditions are right for a certain developed tool to be called for to come into play. If life is to ever change the developed tools to cope with it need to be changed.

If you’re not getting all that you can out of life only you can change it, but the change cannot occur with an old set of tools. You will have to find what tools are needed to allow the change. Once you decide what tools you will use, you can more forward to change your life. It’s not some God’s fault that you are the way you are so don’t expect praying to God to change it. Praying will instill quietness to a degree which will allow some change to occur, but it‘s the energy of stillness not God that allows for the change to occur; this is what I‘ve experienced. When you cooperate with life, life will be on your side, but you need to develop a set of tools so this can be done. Or if you like the life that you have and you think you are getting all that you can out of it, by all means keep your old tools and see what happens. If you discover one day you need to change the tools that are in place and do it, you will see the change in you by the way you become a benefit to all beings; not just the being looking back at you in the mirror. So either use your old tools or develop new ones, just remember it‘s your life and the tools you choose not only control the way you react to life, but they also put your life in your hands…

Conditioned Thinking Issues

There isn’t an issue that you yourself don’t create. Any issue is created by your own conditioned thinking; your created delusional issues become your reality…

The mind doesn’t become beneficial until we take over its control and become its master. Solving issues are what the mind does the best, but it’s unfortunate because its ability to create issues are also the best. If a person doesn’t control the mind, the mind will control the person, this is not a belief this is factual. The creation of conditioned thinking issues are so elusive because your own mind creates blocks so you don’t see their existence. You are in prison to your own mind, the prison being it constantly makes issues that don’t really exist. Regardless of what it is just look at your own life to see example after example of this. Situations, circumstances and whatever else comes up, the mind makes an issue because life is lived based in “I”. An example would be this writing, agree with it, don’t agree with it, pick it apart, who cares, its not that important, but alas to a mind that wants to make it an issue it’s the most important thing in the world.

There are simply words written here, nothing more. If they are an issue to you, it’s only because of your conditioned thinking. Any issue is a product of your conditioning, no conditioning, no issue. A noisy mind will not see this, because the noise is a creation of the Conditioned Mind; only a non Conditioned Mind will see this. The other day someone asked me how I was doing with spreading my message, I said “it’s spreading” but what does it really matter unless it’s made into an issue. Things will always be as they are and because I’m aware of my conditioned thinking I don’t have to make it into something that its not; an issue. This is true control and freedom because it’s based in truth. The Universe is in charge of life, not the make believe concepts and ideas that are formed by conditioned thinking. When this is understood Universal Truth will be your guide and you won’t have to create conditioned mind issues…
