But we have not yet reached the stage where we can rest in this state permanently. This is a peak experience, and we cannot remain in this peak state indefinitely. The pull of the lower separate self is too strong, and so we revert to our 'normal' state, but feeling richer for having had a glimpse of something higher.

As we progress our identification may fluctuate between these two states more frequently, until eventually resting in the Higher Self becomes our normal state.


Great post. It’s just being ourselves, that is Truth, without doubt and fear.

Just fearlessly accepting who we Truly are. We are One, Truth.

Agreed totally

You share this blessing with the animals and all other living things. You cannot fall out of grace, nor can it be taken from you. You can ignore it. You can hold beliefs that blind you to its existence. You will still be graced but unable to perceive your own uniqueness and integrity, and blind also to other attributes with which you are automatically gifted."

"You sell yourself short if you believe that you are only a physical organism living within the boundaries cast upon you by time and space....You are a unique individual. You form your physical environment. You are part of all that is. There is no place within you that creativity does not exist."

....as so endowed, we can even learn to create the illusion that we are no longer Who We Are. Though....

We have always been Who we truly are, awaiting our own remembrance, on Earth, that I AM THAT I AM, as in Heaven.

The natural state has NEVER left us....EVER.

It is Ever here, Even Now.

The "knowingness" that seems obscured is akin to acting as if the "clouds of acculturated learning", forced upon the perception of perfection we were endowed with even before our births, can actually obscure the sun and blue sky ever present above them.

We were taught, from infancy on, how to forget our true natures...and then forgot that we were taught to do so.

...while the Sun of our Omniscient True Nature, smiles to Itself, shining luminously, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nB-xqDZbEVQ

...while dancing with the Moon!

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it
“Why, that’s true! I am a perfect, unlimited gull!” Jonathan opened his eyes asking, "Where are we?” The Elder Chiang said, “We’re on some planet with a green sky and a double star for a sun.” Jonathan made a scree of delight. “IT WORKS!" “Well, of course it works, Jon,” said Chiang. “It always works, when you know what you’re doing." (and even when you don't)

In this scenario the happen-ed self is absent. Only the happen-ing self (the functional self/body-mind) is operative - and this happen-ing self is simultaneous with everything in this present unfolding - right now. The happened self (the history self/future self of our stories and anticipations) has no actual existence in the bloom of the present.

We carry a virtual storehouse of memory, history, narrative around with us. It’s vast and takes up a huge amount of resources - and it’s heavy. We spend much (most) of our time there - recollecting, ruminating or rearranging (in the form of future planning.)

In the instant that we let it go something else suddenly becomes apparent. Something real, immediate, alive, vital… This is the natural state.

You knew this as a small child. It never left - it’s just obscured.

Wow...this has been here since August?
And I missed it? I wish I had written this.

Absolutely beautiful.

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...Meditate unceasingly,
that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"
~~Lahiri Mahasaya, the guru of Yogananda's guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.
Better to PM me if you want me to see a post to me. I miss a lot.
