There is Something Else…
Our minds have been programmed in such a way that we don’t
realise that we are always looking through our programming.
It is like wearing pink coloured glasses – when we look out
everything we see is tinted pink.
We don’t know how to look out without looking through the
conditioned mind – except when people have an extraordinary
experience, like an awakening or a near death experience.
Suddenly they realise that there is something else.
There is Something Else – a State that cannot be understood
by the mind. It is not understandable, not knowable. It is
beyond the capacity of the mind to understand.
You are not realising that you are living in this State because
most of the time you are in your mind. And the conditioned
mind has demands, preferences, opinions, complaints, believes.
Your mind wants things to be a certain way and not another way.
Disconnect from the thinking mind.
The mind is unlikely to stop so let it continue. Disconnect and
be here – totally open to the possibility that something else will
reveal itself. The key is always NOW – not thinking about now.
Keep disconnecting from the thought. If you keep coming back
into this very moment and you start experiencing the way things
are, you will find that there is something else.
The Unexplainable Experience
When this click happens there is no time and no duality.
No good and no bad, no for or against, no conflict, no contraction,
no disturbance and no fear. There is a realisation that everything
is for you and nothing is ever against you. Also, everything is
interconnected in every way – every action, every movement,
every thought, every emotion effects everything else. And
everything is wonderful. Everything. You are in awe of everything,
like a “little child”.
You realise that you are not just your body, your mind or your
emotions. The body is still physical, the mind still thinks, the
emotions still do their thing, but there is a new realisation
you are not only these things. They are not the total You. They
are included in what you call You. The body, the mind and the
emotions are your vehicle. Beyond that is the essential you.
Nothing is quite as solid. There is a shimmering, a lightness,
a buzz, a tingle, a vibration, a frequency, and it is vast – it has
no beginning and it has no end. And although you can be aware
of that in you, there is also an awareness that it is not just in you.
It is inside and outside. And then comes the sensation that there
is no barrier between the inside and the outside.
There is an incredible love for everything and everybody.
Everything is extra wonderful – blissful. And yet it gets watched.
“The peace that passes all understanding”. But it is not peace,
because peace is opposite from disturbance. It is not stillness and
it is not movement. You are only just there. But not as a separation.
A thought drifts by and you change, something happens on the
outside and there is change, always change.Still, still moving.
A stillness that is ever changing.
As you sit and allow this frequency, this vibration, this tingle, it
envelops the whole body to the point that it comes to the skin.
It melds through the skin and seems to combine with the air –
which has pretty well the same frequency. ³When you see the in
as the out and the out as the in² – so it is! We are just slightly,
slightly different from the No-Thingness.
Just sitting, in this moment , being with what is, the cells start to
feel more free. No ambition, no looking ahead, not wanting anything
different – not even a different experience, just allowing.
It is like giving each cell permission to be itself. And as it does it
seems to become transparent and in harmony and in tune with all
other cells around us – whatever form they take. Whether they take
the form of a tree or an animal or another person or what we call the
empty air – which is absolutely not empty.
In this expansion, there is a harmony, a dissolving of the identification
that we call the separate self. There is still a something there
My feeling is that if there is absolutely no desire in any way whatsoever,
we don¹t just die, we evaporate, we disappear, we transcend,
we ascend – melting into the whole…
