The first inner move that initiates un-enlightenment is attachment to a false self that draws one away from pure awareness of their Consciousness. This attachment creates all other attachments, and all of them are nothing else but a futile attempt to fill the gap between who you are and who you are not. This gap is not fillable, and nothing will fully distract you from sensing it. The only working solution to the problem is to drop the fake self. However, due to the strength of attachment, everybody refrains from making this very healthy and really liberating move (“anything other than this, unless anything other than this is no longer applicable”, which is precisely what’s going on now and more of it is on the way).
It is nearly a planetary “self-identity crisis” that the humankind has been in for centuries, and which can be likened to everyday reality of a mad house, where the patients insist that they are a Napoleon, this or that president, another VIP, an offended being, or a brick on the pavement that must be stepped on because it is unimportant. And all of them will defend their false identities on a daily basis, believing these are real, craving for constant approval of the fake identities from the doctors (authority figures) and other patients. While the mad crowd is identified with the roles of someone or something else, other than themselves, the med crew is identified with the social roles, titles, and everything those roles and titles entail. The med crew, is on a mission to normalize the patients to the roles that the med crew is firmly identified with outside the hospital hours, as they believe that’ll be the truth of who the patients are. Neither of the two camps know who they really are outside the roles they got identified with. This is a state of ultimate nightmare or forgetfulness of one’s nature that one has divorced with and then mistakenly identified with a set of stories, good, bad, and weird, known as “personality”. What happens then, is this. Your personality, character, and characteristics of the roles you play, become your main reference point, while your Consciousness with all its expanded and immediate awareness ceases to be such reference point from then on.
This leads to a false assumption, which states that you, as a being, do not have any influence on your own internal energetic, emotional, and spiritual environment, because this is a domain of Consciousness, which is out of the picture for any given personality at play. The personality as such does not have direct awareness of reality as it is (let alone energetic reality). Instead, it has a set of scripts and stories that make up this personality, so these stories and not direct awareness become the choice makers and guidelines along which the predesigned personal expression will take place. Sure enough this expression will be very limited and very predictable.
The second inner move that causes and anchors the unenlightened state comes out of the first one and it conveys that other people and events outside of you, as well as their opinions, ideas, illusions, behavior and so on, cause you and your life to be what it becomes. Whoever has a visceral clarity and understanding that the opposite is correct does not need to read this article.
When you buy into the lie that you have no decisive power in your own reality while external things and beings do have such power, you simply go into a permanent halt in your growth, development, and evolution. From that moment on, you will walk around the same circle, constructed of various other illusions, having an impression of purposeful movement, while in reality there will be none at all.
If the past or present event or person is given the ultimate decisive power to choose and anchor your dominant energetic state or dominant emotional state, or it is given a creative power to design the scope and confines of what is possible for you, you are going to be challenged by this illusion up to the level of total destruction of it, which you will misperceive as a total destruction of you, since you had identified with this illusion. Why is it so? Because you are the power of who you are and the weakness of who you are not. And everywhere where you decided to express the weakness of who you are not, which is an illusion about you, you will fall and crumble, experiencing the weakness of the illusion you confused yourself with.
You may make your life a never-ending process of compensation for everything you are not that you subscribed to. It will be a life full of strife and tension, because nothing in existence can give a sense of self-fulfillment to a fake self. This is a life, where you are out of power and out of choice, because you are out of your truth. An alternative, and way healthier choice is also available for taking. That would be the most natural and hence, the easiest one – choosing to be in deep touch with your own nature, through intimate connection with your emotions, feelings, intuitive knowing, and unique to you patterns of inner images, that inform you about you and your movements within the intelligent fabric of possibilities and options that make up this Creation. No middleman or middle woman is required. You may spontaneously get in touch with the Source and the rest of life intelligence, and even start participating in the inner intelligence net forum of multiverse, where various other parts of intelligence will share their awarenesses with you.
This is the intimacy everybody is looking for. The intimacy with their own inner source and hence loving, intimate connection with the whole life and the Source of all that is. However, just about everybody is misled to look for this intimate connection outside of themselves, in another human being, usually of the opposite sex. It ain’t there. NOBODY is the source of your intimate connection with you and the Source. It makes sense to just get it, and direct your looking into the right place where it does exist. There you shall find it.
Enlightenment is a state of a very expanded self-awareness, which entitles a spontaneous and permanent experience of connection with everything that exist, while being supported by everything that exist. That includes total absence of ideas about yourself. Eastern doctrines call this state “emptiness”. A blade of grass does not have any ideas about itself, yet it is in the state of fully being its true nature, which is aware of the Nature that it is a part of. Both are in harmony (not in denial) with each other.
You enter the artificial matrix that many are so eager to exit (for understandable reasons) by conceptualizing both, yourself and the flow of life energy. That makes you artificial, lifeless, and separated from everything else. What makes you alive and united with everything is direct awareness, which does not require any names, concepts, and left brain calculations. This direct awareness assumes fully functioning sensitivity to the nature of the life flow within yourself and simultaneously, – within other life expressions. It allows you to be in direct touch with all parts of reality, and that makes you feel alive and beautiful.
Consciousness is a part of you that is aware of everything, analyses and judges nothing, and within the variety of infinite options and possibilities chooses what’s right for it for any given moment. It acknowledges (not fights with) what doesn’t work for it or what doesn’t support its wholeness and then focuses on, and moves towards what does support its wholeness and health.
Personality will always be caught and stressed between two extremes: attachment and aversion. So, predictably, it will seek approval of its own existence or it will defend its existence. And in between these two behaviors it will engage in a process of often endless and always energy draining comparison, to figure out which of the two behaviors to display.
Whether you choose to be a person, an experience it is having, or you choose to drop this personality, together with all its masks and stories, and be again a space of awareness, which is your Consciousness, is entirely up to you. It takes a lot of effort to be who you are not. It takes none, to be who you are. Moving from “personhood” to “Consciousnesshood” is just an inner move, back to sanity.
On this planet or beyond it, there is a reality or dimension for “personhood”, and there is a reality for “Consciousnesshood”, and on a daily basis everybody is making micro choices that are bringing each choice maker closer to one of the two realities.
And even though, the humankind is currently in the midst of a mayhem, taking place just about everywhere, the good news is you can change everything and anything because you can make YOUR choice.
No matter whether it is a personal or global mayhem, practically speaking, what images and what emotional, spiritual, and energetic content of the reality you choose to experience, you will invest your primary attention and your love-light energy in right away?
We all know what sick, drama-destruction-and-tragedy-based images of the possible future and also current reality are being suggested by the TV, radio and now also the Internet. It is your individual choice that will contribute into the collective choice, to invest or not to invest your attention and life-light energy in the nasty images and sick versions of collective reality suggested by the mass media. You sure can acknowledge the insanity that is being suggested by the mass media. And yet, how about picking up different images for your individual current and future reality directly from your heart? Because you absolutely can actualize them by investing your love-light energy into them. You either use your heart imagination or become a subject to mass media manipulation of your imagination. What do you choose?
When everything is a deception, stay still in your truth and make your choices from there.
When everything is upside down, expand your presence into all directions up to infinity,
And let your heart beat in unison with the heart of all life forms everywhere,
Then…. in the sacred gap of the unified heartbeats, hear the Source whispering you the answer.
