Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru.

Each steps teaching me or leading me to the way, the steps i take as a student others may follow them steps behind.
I keep no label to myself i am free from all these things , untouched and unbothered.

Projections, like reflections, are a form of nonverbal communication. The entire creation is communicating with itself, but it seems human beings are generally out of whack on this. Regardless, everything is useful; everything is as crumbs leading us towards the great meal.

Some are in deeper then others and they may have layers and layers of letting go, while for others all they may have to do is let go. Probably for most letting go is a continual process. I do not expect for others to have the same journey of self discovery which I have had. We all have our own methods and our own unique conscious journey towards non-duality.

There is no such thing as beliefs and projections, the way is thought by none actions,
you think or see not with your eyes but by being the eye/I.

I feel that when some people say “just let go” that’s really an over simplification and meaningless to a lot of people. Yes on the one hand it is true and on the other hand it’s impossible for many of us. But as Starman states, the letting go is a slow process for some of us, but IMO for the majority of us. So I guess telling people to just let go is fruitless.

You state: Who I am matters not, it’s rather who are you.

Ascension: Well you asked for questions from us, so I feel it really DOES matter who you are.

Ascension, I agree that we do not see with our eyes but where I differ is that I experience that we actually see with our awareness. I have shared here in this forum how I lost my eyesight in Vietnam and was totally blind for about 5-years. It was then that I learned that we may look at things with our eyes but we will only see those things with our awareness. I saw things when I was blind that I failed to see when I had 20/20 eyesight.

Awareness is light that allows us to see, it is that energy which makes us sentient beings. In the out-of-physical body experience we can see with all of our being. In cosmic consciousness our awareness expands beyond our physical body and we may find our physical body inside of our own consciousness. There are immutable cosmic laws at work but the journey’s flow is wide open when there is no obstruction.

Energy plus obstruction equals friction
Energy minus obstruction equals unparallel comfort and freedom
This is my experience.

We are all looking at the same thing but we are not seeing the same thing, or interpreting it the same way, and that’s’ okay. Duality is fraught with diversity and that includes diversity in thought and point of view. I am not on this forum to convince people to see things my way; humbly valuing diversity is part of my spiritual path.

Namaste
