Human being and the human conditioning

What is human Being?
When meeting this question, where do you look for the answer?
You are the answer! - and not the constructs and definitions of a control mentality that does not know that you are.

It seems as if a particular kind of disconnected thinking has taken precedence over the function of human Being such that human being is suppressed, blindly exploited, and rendered largely unconscious, by a conditioned programming of self defeating and self destructive thoughts, beliefs and conflicting identities. These run like a virtual reality on top of our being and seem to have come between us and our being - simply because we believe we are as our conditioned thinking dictates, and the whole thing runs unquestioned simply because we believe we already know and build on that instead of connecting directly to what knowing is. This building grows ever more complex in attempt to maintain and prevail a sense of self in control. Far from growing true wealth it grows debt. Its ingenuity and presentation is the art of guile and the assertion of 'power upon'. It does not see or appreciate power of shared purpose - except its form - which it absorbs and subverts or 'kills' in order that it can survive.

Knowing IS being - but true knowing is not separated off from the known, to be used as a personal possessive self validator. Prometheus eats his own guts out unknowing - and there is no end to it while he maintains a disconnect between stealing the Light and suffering limitation. One cannot steal the Light, but only runs off with a local copy. But the wish-belief in a wilful power of disconnection is a fundamental building block in the thought system and identity that comes from it.

And the fear of such, along with the guilt of such, hold the such mind in terror and in impotence. All force is brought to bear on limiting such pain and loss along with all ingenuity of distraction, displacement, denial and disassociation.

This is a sketch of human conditioning but not human being. Waking up to the true nature of the sickness also wakes the cure - because the problem is uncovered where it is - instead of being 'solved' where it is not - in displacement and projection of our guilt and fear upon others or upon situations.

The cure is not of further exercise of sickness and the further investment in forcing resolutions upon externalisations designed to keep 'the problem' protected by solving it externally. But must discern and desist from employing such thinking as sees disconnection from being as survival and self validating identity in struggle.

Then what? Then see what is revealed and restored as a truly living communication of true purpose.
What is our true purpose? Don't look to thinking for an answer but let being truly human express a presence of a unified will.
All things express their foundation. We do not create our being - but in creative cooperation with the law of our being we create the good, the beautiful and the true - because such is free from self hatred and shame and is of a kind. Be One of a Kind!

Humanity a plague on the Earth?

Sir David Attenborough, Naturalist And Filmmaker, Calls Humanity 'A Plague On The Earth'


I invite you to pause a moment and reflect that it is not humans that are the sickness - but our thinking. And the false identities that arise from such thinking.
There are parasites that are known to influence the mind and behaviour of their host so as to act in their interest and not the host's.
So it is with the mindset that has cuckolded our true thinking and turned us into blind 'getters' that make a prodigal wastrel - and wasteland - in place of a cooperative participant in the Presence of Life - of which we are expressions - whether we think so or not.

Part of the nature of these thoughts that are not true connected thinking, is that they steal our (awareness and appreciation of) Soul in exchange for empty promises that then enslave us and deal death through our hands and machinations - including that of the the host (ourselves). This pattern of thinking seeds itself in the new generations and doesn't care what side of a conflict it takes as long as conflict persists. For these thoughts are of course conflict-thoughts or wishes, given priority over true relation.

This 'self' that seems to be an organic survival mechanism is indeed 'going forth and multiplying' - for such is the Nature of Life and indeed Mind - only that which is being seeded is a kind of thinking that is divorced from the heart - and indeed believes itself successfully separated from the Life - of which it is expression and which is its true source and nature - even while a virtual layer of thought and experience is engaged and lived as if IT was Real.

One of the 'answers' that conflicted-thinking offers - if it cannot see a way to survive and prevail in its illusion of independence and control - is suicide. This can be done in all manner of ways - and the deceptive ingenuity of conflicted thinking is in one knowing not what one actually does. This is because in any clarity of awareness the costs of following such thinking is deeply painful and insanely meaningless. So distractions that effectively filter, distort or shut off awareness are absolutely required as defence from such felt distress. Where the miracle and wonder of life breaks through, or is accepted, it is compartmentalized and inhibited in its transfer of wisdom to the whole.

The Good News is that regardless of being so poor in Spirit - are you all blessed. For what you thought to have lost - or choose to believe never existed - or has nothing to do with YOU - is simply covered over - (you got it!) - with a false thinking of a sense of self that is made to look away from its source and 'survive' as a separated life - in competition with Life and all lives.

I invite you to pause of your desire to rid the Earth of humans or of yourself and instead rid yourself of this mindset. Not by struggle or righteous crusade - not in some movement of idealistic problem solving, but simply by learning to recognize the thoughts that come from a fearful and manipulative mask - and desisting from employing them or investing further in them.

If you think not - the 'Bridegroom comes'. Why? - because there is that of your true Nature that rises to your awareness of itself when it is no longer suppressed. And it rises in ways that are appropriate and encouraging and practical to your real life. The one that is your real presence and passion expressing.

Nothing that I say is really new - but this fear-thinking is old tired and stale. Perhaps long ago it was a kind of game for thrills, but over time we became identified and addicted to it. Addicted until - that is - a different foundation appears where the false one had always seemed to be!

Look at your mind - your thinking - your defence and masking mechanisms - and see if you don't find the seeds of everything in the world within you that you judge against. This requires that you can allow yourself to be honestly aware in the midst of conditioned triggers of opinion, predjudice and self protective denials or assertions.

Now we are the one that chooses to subscribe - no matter how much power of belief we give to our thoughts. Yes we are conditioned - and also we are rooted in an Awareness that we do not create - nor really control. The illusion of control was one of the empty promises whereby we 'turned away' from the context and dimension of our feeling being. And still is.

This egocentric aspect is not evil so much as imaginary. But when You identify with asserting or opposing it, there is no communicating with you until your bubble either pops or becomes porous to the depth of You.

This writing does not set out to convince you of God - a unified conscious meaning that simply cannot Be translated or rendered into conflict-thinking - because such thinking is designed to blanket. (blank it). You have to metaphorically 'put the gun down' and calm in order to feel and know what is truly natural to you - and THEN you will be restored to your innate capacity to feel your way in a wholeness of being… in a tangible and communicated presence of life. Everything functions now in a way that all the kings horses and all the kings men - can NEVER put together.

This IS a 'prodigal moment' in our times. Trade in your toxic debt for true Relation. This has nothing to do with believing in the head - excepting to question ALL of the believing of the head and bring it to true account in the discernment of the heart. This does NOT require a Phd - just an honest willingness to uncover truth beyond mutually self serving definitions.

Thinking needs to extend out-from a truly relational connectedness - or communioned-ness. Expressing real relation.
The call to rest has never been more urgent. Don't just do something - stand there!

Thankyou for your attention

Undefended Presence and inhibition

Buddha at the gas pump is a site sharing interviews with people who in one way or another have awakening or enlightenment experience.
I wrote the article below after watching and enjoying the interview with Francis Bennett.

A living communication is not defined or contained in the forms of its appearance. It is felt wholeness of being - inclusive because love is shared rather than defined and rejected.

Francis demonstrates an undefendedness to love and therefore an open hearted communication that is not caught up in trying to be correct, nor identifying with a teaching role, or teaching form and practice.

He is perhaps still embarrassed to trust the fullness of loves expression through him - to let its totally take him, but is not embarrassed by his inhibitions - as he is in the way of letting rather than of attempting to become - and this is the extension of trust - being exactly as he is without engaging the 'mind' that attempts to add or take away to make its self of story prevail in its attention.

The release of entertainment allows a true hearted engagement. We are all in receipt of the totality of love and are all in the way of accepting or inhibiting its truth as our own - along with all that is.

The principle inhibition is of a withdrawal into thoughts that seem to define or justify a separateness or partiality to love. That 'names' without sharing the nature.
A society of mutually agreed definitions supports the inhibition to love by joining without love, without sharing in true presence. Though this then takes on the appearance and behaviours we call the world, it is always founded on reaction of a misplaced or mistaken attempt to get love within a form that denies its already existence and the corresponding shame and pain of perceived abandonment or believed retaliation reinforces the identification with lack and loss.

This is where the remembering of one who is undefended to love, shines into the one who was actively forgetting and wakens to that love is already here, already true, already the source, nature and condition of you. This re establishes a conscious realized foundation in place of a highly complex defence mechanism with which love's expression became identified as a 'surviving fragment' of love's loss amidst disintegration experience of fear, and density of guilt.

Accepting true authority inherently releases the mentality that usurps and divides, by sharing true purpose in place of conflicting wishes. Nothing CAN substitute for love… Love's remembrance is living presence - and this is ours to accept and share but not to make, package or re-brand. Although we are free to work with a copy in image and use it to teach and learn the prodigal lesson.

Our fundamental teaching-learning aspect in the awakening is to share what is freely and lovingly given to a true willingness to receive. This transforms and translates a world of grievance and attack into a perfect curriculum for awakening to love's being the totality of all that is ever truly present.

The call for love comes from the mind that thinks it has become as it thinks to be and does not know what it does or what it truly desires. It may seem to be justification for judgement and rejection to a mind that equates these things with personal salvation, but even a glimpse of love's presence, accepted, offers an alternative perception in which their call is yours! - and through awakening the answer of love's recognition in you, is your joy and gratitude extended to them and to all, silently and directly - and in form as the movement of love prompts and guides.
