Error of Seeking

"This is the error of all seeking: You leave the Place you Always Already Are in order to find That Very Place.” - Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj

The Way-less Way to Reach Truth: A Consideration

Can "Truth" be defined?  Is it limited to a something that can be defined?  What is Truth?

Truth, Reality, is defined to be All-That-Is, or the Condition of All-That-Is.

That Being the Case, can Truth be gotten at by/through any point-of-view whatsoever?

How can point-of-view, which is limited, be the mode through which All-That-Is is Realized?

Is that possible?

Doesn't it seem more probable that for Truth to Be Truth, It must BE Transcendent of all points-of-view?

Doesn't it seem more probable that Truth Can Not be gotten through any point-of-view exclusively?

Yes, for Truth, All-That-Is, IS whether there is any point-of-view or not.  Truth IS, prior to any point-of-view that can be assumed and is not gotten at through any mode of point-of-view.

All seeking assumes an inherent point-of-view, and a particular mode through which "the sought" is to be sought.

Taking the point that Truth is not the outcome of any point-of-view, exclusively, we see that no seeking (since, as mentioned, all seeking assumes an inherent point-of-view) can arrive at Truth.

We see that Truth is not gotten at by any kind of seeking (any point-of-view) whatsoever.

We see that point-of-view, any point-of-view, only apparently obscures the Truth by making us "look away from" the Truth and towards the projections generated from the position of point-of-view.

I AM YOUR AWAKENING

Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj
I am like the sunlight in the morning. I intensify the light of morning until you awaken. Until the light awakens a person, even the Light of Consciousness Itself, the person continues to dream, tries to survive within the dream, manipulates himself or herself within the dream, pursues all kinds of goals, searches, none of which Awaken the person. All ordinary means only console a person and distract him or her within the dream. I Myself, the One Who would Awaken you, am not a person, not an individual within the dream. I Am your Very Consciousness. I Am the Real, the Light, the True Waking State, the Heart — Breaking Through the force of dreaming. It is not that you are some poor person who needs some other poor person to help you out. It may appear to be so within the dream, but essentially it is your own Ultimate Self-Nature Appearing within the dream to Awaken you. I Am your Awakening, and your always already Conscious State.


-BHAGAVAN ADI DA SAMRAJ

Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj: from The Aletheon

Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj
AVATAR ADI DA SAMRAJ: You imagine, from the "point of view" of the conscious mind (or of the body-mind-"self' altogether), that you are associated with all kinds of "objects" and "others", and so on. That apparent association is an illusion. You never encounter an "object" in and of itself. Look around you. See those bodies and those "objects" in the room? You comprehend all of that through an illusion. You interpret it falsely. In fact, you "experience" all of that as forms of Consciousness. Consciousness is your association with those appearances. Those appearances are forms of Consciousness — but you want to call them "things", as if they are separate from Consciousness. Nothing you "experience" is separate from Consciousness. Everything you "experience" is an "experience" in Consciousness. Everything you "experience" is an "experience" of Consciousness. You never "experience" anything separate from Consciousness. It is all in Consciousness, and, yet, you want to babble on about an "objective world". There is no "objective world" separate from Consciousness. You have no such "experience". You have never had any such "experience". All your "experiences" are in the medium of Consciousness. The proper investigation of Reality Itself, then, is a process in Consciousness. ------

What is Truth?


What is Truth? Is there any such thing as "the Truth"? Why am I asking about Truth and what do I mean when I am "asking about Truth"? Isn't "Truth" just another word? What is this word pointing to? Do I know? Do I have an idea? 

 Isn't “Truth”, what I am looking for, already an idea in my mind? Am I not just going around in circles by posing the question while already knowing, or assuming that I know what I am looking for? This seems to be a game that I am playing with myself. I create the meaning of Truth, without knowing what Truth is, and begin a search for it. How do I assume this search will end? How will I know what Truth is? Will I know what Truth is when it is right in front of my face? Is Truth an “it”?

So right now, even the search for Truth becomes a question in itself. The search for Truth seems to be useless unless I know what exactly I mean when I say Truth. And if I know exactly what I mean when I say “Truth”, then do I need to search for it? This seems to end nowhere and just take me around in circles. Am I just playing with words? Why am I playing with words?

Reality: Always-Already the Case

By the Grace of Bhagavan Adi Da Samraj:


For Reality to Be Reality

It Must Not Be an "It"

As All "Its" are conditional and merely apparently separate (but are not intrinsically separate since their conditional nature presumes that they are all interlinked via innumerable conditions in order to appear to be separate).

For Reality to Be Reality

It Must Not Be Dependent on any conditions

As All dependency on conditions presupposes an intrinsic need for those conditions to exist for Reality to Be.

However, Reality does not require conditions to exist for It IS the Source Condition (Conditionless Condition) of all that arises.

For Reality to Be Reality It Must Only Be.

There are No "conditions" required for Reality to Be Reality Itself

Reality IS As IS.

Reality IS Always-Already the Case.

"The World is an Illusion" is Not a Good Teaching

"To say that the world is an illusion is not a good teaching, but it is a great discovery!" - Sri Mooji

Mystical Experiences are Still Experiences

"But even though they’re the highest, most beautiful states a human being can have, mystical experiences are happening to the dream character you take to be "me" - and this "me" is the one you wake up from. Awakening is the realization that you are the awakeness or lucidity that’s experiencing every moment of the dream, including the so-called spiritual or mystical, without being caught by it."


-Adyashanti


from the interview that can be read at:


http://www.tricycle.com/interview/taboo-enlightenment

YOU ARE THAT!

EXISTENCE IS.

YOU ARE THAT.

YOU CANNOT KNOW EXISTENCE LIKE YOU KNOW AN OBJECT.

YOUR KNOWING AND YOUR BEING OF IT IS ONE AND THE SAME.

THERE IS NO DIVISION OF KNOWER, KNOWING, AND THE OBJECT KNOWN WHEN IT COMES TO KNOWING YOURSELF.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU EXIST?

DID YOU SEE YOURSELF AS AN OBJECT?

NO.

YOUR KNOWING YOU EXIST IS SELF-CONTAINED IN YOUR BEING.

YOU CAN'T DENY THAT YOU ARE.

YOU CAN'T DENY KNOWING THAT YOU ARE.

AND YOU CAN'T DENY EITHER THAT THERE IS NO (separate) "YOU" THAT "KNOWS" THAT YOU ARE.

IT IS OF ONE TASTE.

THE TASTER IS THE TASTE AND THE TASTED.

The Illusion: Snake vs Rope

Q. Master, the scriptures say that this world is an appearance. It is like seeing something which is not really there. They say it is like seeing the snake on a rope.

A. That's old and incomplete.

Q. What do you mean by that?

A. Those were pointers, they were contemporary pointers dependent on their place and time. That's why if you get too hung up on the words, you will not get anything from it.

Q. What would today's pointer be like?

A. Look at this world as a virtual reality simulation. Not only is the snake and rope that are appearing not really there, the one that is seeing the snake and the rope is also not there!

But don't get hung up on the words. Look to what they are pointing. They are always only pointing to what you really are. ALWAYS! WHY? BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING ELSE!

Using Words as Pointers - from Wei Wu Wei

"... words, however carefully chosen, rejected, screened, cannot, owing to their nature, fulfill their limited role as long as their reader takes them to 'himself', seeks to use them for 'himself', and sees the illusory character of everything in the Universe except that of the reader."

- from Preface of The Tenth Man by Wei Wu Wei

SPONTANEOUS DECLARATION OF SELF!

I AM THE LIMITLESS, APPARENTLY APPEARING IN A LIMITED FORM.

I AM ALL OF IT. I AM ALL OF IT.
