Pausing from reaction

MPs rule out British assault on SyriaGovernment motion on action against Assad defeated by 13 votes

I am pleased to see that that which seeks to manipulate by inciting reaction has had to pause.

To pause from reaction allows a space in which an honesty can rise to awareness that otherwise is kept at bay.

An honest perspective may seem unaffordable to vested interests and masked agendas - particularly if the promise of gaining advantage or of mitigating loss is believed credible.

But an insane perspective is no perspective at all.

If it seems to be the only view available, perhaps one has yet to pause from reactive thinking and listen in the heart. Honesty and discernment are felt in the heart, but emotional reactivity is a manipulation of the mind as if to usurp a unified perspective.

Though at root the dynamic of deception is simple. It spawns complexities of entanglement in conflict that cannot be solved within its own framework. This is also seen in the financial 'system'.

The mindset of division, blame and self-righteousness is embedded in human consciousness as a conditioning, but it is not native to Consciousness Itself.

Who can pause of their own thinking can open to wisdom.

Not in subjugation to another's will - but yielding in trust to the true power of life.

So yes, I am saying that what we take as our thinking is a deception, and that we need wake up, by pausing of its programming and noticing what is active currently.

Or stoke the fires of opinionated identity in reaction and to hell with it?

We all have a choice, because we ARE all choosing in every moment, to use it.

A sense of righteousness is compulsive to the one that fears their own illegitimacy. But at the deepest level, we are all complicit in the 'sin' of putting our own thinking above that of love's awareness now. So much so, that very few will be able to pause reaction to this so as to hear its message.

As long as we love to hate, and love to fear - so long will the insanity and pain of war blight our lives. Not just in wars of bomb and bullet - but war as a perpetual and accepted NORM of relations with ourselves, each other and our world.

I would that love's honesty rise in everyone and make no exception. For if I say that 'so and so' does not deserve love's awareness, I attack myself.

To say NO to an unacceptable behaviour, may well be a direct expression of love - but the presence of integrity is what is actually communicating.

Where is our integrity? Is it not the basis of our sanity and trust in ourselves and therefore each other? Is it not the resonance and quality of our communications as well as the forms of meanings that are conveyed?

Humiliation is feared and avoided with lies that lead to more lies. Yet a moment's honest reflection can shift to a true humility - and here is integrity that does not lord it at another's expense. It always starts now - and it is always a responsibility of thought and intent, now.

Pause itself isn't an answer, but in it, the desire for answer can be lived as an expression of trust. Not in the terms set by the problem - but in one's true relation that is NOT defined by the terms the problem sets.

Our surface minds have been conditioned to war - but our true mind is not what we have covered it with - and so can be UN-covered - unless we persist in warring so as to maintain a NOT knowing in which to seem to exercise 'self-will'.

Life as Gift - and NOT as Grab

To hunt Osama bin Laden, satellites watched over Abbottabad, Pakistan, and Navy SEALs

Classified documents published Thursday by The Washington Post reveal new details about the U.S. operation that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.
The U.S. commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden was guided from space by a fleet of satellites, which aimed dozens of receivers over Pakistan to collect a torrent of electronic and signals intelligence as the mission unfolded, according to a top-secret U.S. intelligence document.

Conspiracy of self-will, conditioned mind and integrity

The 'conspiracy' that operates is simply self-will. What shares a purpose operates as a unity without having to consciously 'conspire'.

I'm not sure what rejecting science would be. As the search for truth I embrace it. As for restricting the search to the empirically measurable, so as to fit all that I experience within what scientific method can actually be used to address? - I don't accept that.

And I feel that such ideas are in effect a basis for limiting our function to a machine-mentality.

So the control mentality associated with the elite super rich manipulators and their sphere of influence is simply a function of a set of ideas given acceptance and currency in our larger cultural beliefs and communications.

A scientist may seek to uncover an understanding of forces and relationships in particles and processes of chemistry or physics, so why not uncover the apparently hidden currency of ideas that inevitably manifest as a cultural bankruptcy, social disease and global disorder.

Is it that we - in the main - are tacitly 'conspiring' to look out at the world our mind conceives and perceives as reflection of its model of what we are and what the world is.

This denies direct awareness within our mind that would see what we are using it for - as a virtual experience through its apparent persona.

- - -
The mind can become so identified or conditioned to the way it is looking that it effectively operates 'as if' it is the construct in consciousness that it is looking with and through.

In fact we tend to use the term consciousness as both awareness - and as a complex self-construct.

Likewise the term "I" can be a direct appreciation of a movement of awareness-event or a construct of definitions and story meanings that serves as an experience of interpretation and investment in outcomes.

I would bring mental considerations out of their box and into a curiosity of direct observation. To participate more fully in what it is to be consciously in relationship with Life - as an integral expression of that Life.

Self definition can pass off as self-creation - but where does this moment of awareness arise out-from?
- - -

Yes - but it is what we THINK or are induced to think we want and indeed for a surface or fleeting gratification rather than a true fulfilment. Our needs are denied by such distraction. Joy and peace of honouring one's own needs always expresses as a demeanour of kindness. The self-deprived see less charitably.

Indeed our MENTALITY is what must be re-evaluated and observed so as to be changed where it is undermining our wellbeing, and not merely focusing out on persons or issues as if to merely apportion blame is to resolve!

Unless we become transformed in our own mind our words will be powerless. Good ideas are not enough. We must be at peace within our self - or truly expressing willingness to uncover it. Or else our hidden conflicts leak out in all that we do and say and our world reflects them.

All I am saying is that our now become a point of ongoing awareness and integrity. If not now - when?

We have been asleep in loveless machinery for a long time and its habit is deeply entrenched

Questioner: This is a fact: animals cannot exist if plants die out so there is an intimate total reliability on the survival of plants - do plants have minds? A simple understandable answer would be good.

The interrelatedness of all life is what I was referring to as a unified oneness that we are partially un-covering as we release the mentality that presumes to 'lord it' over Life. True existence is not in the terms we define humanly - but in terms you can accept - yes our body doesn't end at our skin but includes the breathing plants - the Living Planet.

These are not just organisms and entities but relationships that we have neglected in our self and with all that lives - as if we exist outside of life and use it as if it were just stuff to exploit.

Information is not merely derived data that is a result of processes of analysis, division and comparisons and sorting. (Which is all good for the level at which it applies). What I might call living information is available as the 'higher' qualities of mind - that is inspiration, intuitive insight, a felt discernment, and a capacity to refocus attention in any whole trust of desire and intent to receive appropriate 'knowing relative to a felt need. Because it is living information, it is one with you in a way that concepts are not - and yet can be felt directly and at a different level. For example when someone really give you their full attention you can feel it as a receptive non judgemental acceptance. You likewise can feel a manipulative or coercive intent that overlooks who you really are in order merely to get something.

We all actually use higher faculties all the time but don't realize it. The 'thinking mind' likes to take credit of achievement or maintain a sense of independent control as part of feeling secure in its sense of reality. Therefore not surprisingly this control sense or demand, has to relax to let a different quality of information in.

You could say we shut out our Higher mind even though we are wholly dependent on it so it works in the background. To let it it into a conscious awareness is to reintegrate the separate self sense with a truly shared Life. One Life is in and through all - this is not just DNA etc - but has an experiential participation and recognition. That is the part that Science has been neglecting. If we 'caught up' with our own discoveries we would know that the material world is an energetic patterning of resonances and communications and not a world of self existing 'things' or entities amidst empty space. Our consciousness is transformational and yet our sense of being apart from life as if to control it is a way of refusing to yield to the movement of our own being - and so there is such dissonance in our experience and world.

The five senses can open to the qualities and energies of Life that are subtler than otherwise available in the release of division and the yielding into wholeness.

One could call it the 'more of you' that your current definition disallow. Curiosity can pause in the middle of anything and ask what it really is - what is really going on here? - but because we are conditioned or programmed to believe we know, we don't pause to ask. There is a kind of 'knowledge that loses innocence - and yet curiosity IS a movement of true innocence.

If you uncover even a spark, you can appreciate it and grow it. Life is not at rest in being denied but would be known. So the stirring of curiosity is also the movement of our being towards wholeness.

Being wholly present in our appreciation is a passion or joy of life expressing through us.

We do not lose individuality - but an integrated individuality operates out as an actually connecting relationship with its relations rather than mentally manipulating a model of its strategic assessment.

The mind can become so identified or conditioned to the way it is looking that it effectively operates 'as if' it is the construct in consciousness that it is looking with and through. In fact we tend to use the term consciousness as both awareness - and as a complex self-construct. Likewise the term "I" can be a direct appreciation of a movement of awareness-event or a construct of definitions and story meanings that serves as an experience of interpretation and investment in outcomes. I would bring mental considerations out of their box and into a curiosity of direct observation. To participate more fully in what it is to be consciously in relationship with Life - as an integral expression of that Life. Self definition can pass off as self-creation - but where does this moment of awareness arise out-from?

Questioner: This is a fact: animals cannot exist if plants die out so there is an intimate total reliability on the survival of plants - do plants have minds? A simple understandable answer would be good.

Exactly the same as saying the plants are our lungs. Do lungs have minds? Not as we think of mind, yet they are aligned in a unified purpose as part of the whole. Survival is not acquired or added to life - but is part of the way of it for its time. But if a part identifies itself in its OWN separate purpose and seeks to 'survive' at the expense of the whole it is a bit like cancerous growth that follows lawless chaotic patterns. What exactly IS existence? We see other things come and go. Some of them we eat. We seem to let go of our surface consciousness to sleep each evening and rise a new on waking as if the world and all in it is reality and we are somehow in it but not just the same as material stuff - for we are aware. We think that we 'have minds' but the closer you look at it the less can you find one to get hold of.


I see but I feel you have not answered my question: do you recognise the fact that if all plant life ceased to exist then all life including human would also cease to exist? Another simple question: other than the five senses (see, feel, smell, hear, taste) and through which we receive all information do you reckon there is another source we are not aware of and if there is, how do we recognise the information sent by this source. "


There are innumerable 'ifs' that would likewise be no Earth-life if true or effected. What is your specific desire regarding our plant life?

I have said all life is interrelated as a unified whole. You breathe the exhalations of plant life. The support system OF life on Earth is a wholeness and not a linear set of manipulations.

The mentality that thinks it exists alone in time and space sees linear unrelated things and events and seeks to define and control them for ITS perceived specialness and survival. But the mentality is not the true Expression of Life that is You and it results in such a world-picture as is evident.

The breakdown serves the re-awakening of You by the recognition and discarding of the mentality that induces communication breakdown, loss of trust, fear and control, guilt ...and yet more fearful control in layer over layer of complexity.

The mentality must be put aside and NOT USED as a foundation. In this way we 'choose' to let Life in; to be restored from fear to love and to the wholeness of love's perspective. We are not here to 'survive as loveless machinery' we are the capacity to behold and share the Good, the Beautiful and the True.

Take it that we have been asleep in loveless machinery for a long time and its habit is deeply entrenched. At first it is a breakthrough to even open the thought of what I am saying. But it is a thought that shares in the mind and not a thought that sets the mind secret and special and alone. These are the Thoughts that we forget, neglect and deny expression and so the world is starved of healing and abundance.

I cannot be more than a conduit or embodiment of such thought through my willingness - the same as you. For love, truth, wisdom, peace, joy and unity are not the result of a personal wilfulness or control. We really do have to recognize the trap our mind makes and refuse it. But while we think that that IS our self - we seek to avoid such an outcome as if it were a fate worse than death.

therefore I would illuminate the mentality to a willingness to see the ways in which we hurt our self without blame - because blame is always the repackaging of the same mentality in redistributed form and never heals or truly resolves. There is a literal sense in which all Life loves you. You could say this is 'backstage' or beneath the surface of appearances of separateness. It breathes you as an integral thread in a vast tapestry of Life in Expression. We've lost touch with our Source and think we are going it alone and think we make our own source. Nothing could be farther from true - but the belief is deeply cherished though it is also deeply painful.

To one who felt to denigrate and invalidate with opinion rather than engage with what I wrote

I cannot help you with your perceptions but if you see me speaking of myself at the expense of other please alert me. The values I invite by writing are not special to me or about me. If I attempt to articulate matters of the heart I take the risk of being seen in any kind of light by all sorts of people. But I rest in that I am at one with what it is I attempt to say!

And I am fine with not being taken seriously by anyone who feels no resonance or relevance in what I have to share. That is true of anything anyone writes - is it not?

So I don't judge you as you would me and I don't seek to discredit you as you would me. Simply because I find such intent is always undermining of my own sense of worth if I indulge it.

I have not studied philosophy apart from occasional references. I feel for a more experiential participance.

In many ways, our human mind might be considered inherently pretentious in presuming to know anything. It may have to pretend it exists as it defines itself in order to begin knowing anything.

But I feel the spirit or purpose in which we act is the true value of what we do or say - because kindness uses what is to hand as best it may serve.

Back from the brink?

Back from the brink: Ed Miliband forces David Cameron to retreat over Syria military action

Labour secures promise of second Commons vote before intervention, while President Obama also faces UN pressure to delay military action

Its a contagious mess isn't it!
What are the money/power interests of those corporates or their hosts who seek to force outcomes? Where does one find a clear exposition of the forces and idea-systems involved? In such reshifting of powers through proxy wars has propaganda permeated our very thinking. War replaces communication with technology of mindcontrol.
We are not told much of what is really going on. Do we really want to know?
Those who are so keen to promote hate and fear in self righteousness avidly seek their own agendas in the guise of caring. Hate, fear, guilt, anger and punishment all seek the righteousness of their cause.
There is a deception in our thinking that thrives as emotional reaction and starves in calm honesty.
Our thinking runs away with us and we believe it. Googling Bashar also turns up an E.T who - for all the wackiness of delivery - reveals a perspective on our cocreational thinking that it (the thinking) could never know. We are so heavily invested in a belief-identity that we cannot seem to escape its dictates - for it tells us what we 'see' and it tells us what we are. And it will use whatever means available to maintain its power over our mind - as it was designed and employed by us to effect so that we would not be exposed to an honesty that we believe we have reason to fear. There is no peace outside honesty. How could there be?
Truth is the first casualty of war. Indeed we have to kill it first in order to have one. This is what we all do when we give priority to a secret intent that runs behind the mask of the attempt to manipulate an outcome rather than find one through true communication.
Brinkmanship may bluff its way and resistance may mitigate a settlement, but who can really control the beast of war let loose upon a world so interdependent and interconnected?

Seeding the virus ?

 AndrewStreet said

Well, I have to agree with you on several points there. To be honest, I don't see a lot of hope for this planet, or at least our civilisation on it (the planet itself will recover in time) - if enough of our history is preserved then perhaps we can at least serve as a lesson to some far-future civilisation...

I said:

Might that seed the same thought virus in a new growth?

A conflicted mind is an oxymoron and yet such is the the virtual state of consciousness of humanity.

We are only really free to be what we are. If we try to be what we are not we can call that free will and defend it against all Reason.

To put this another way - we are not the mask or persona that is used and accepted as if it were real in mutual rituals of reinforcement of the idea of separated consciousness.

A separated consciousness USES relationships to GET. This correlates exactly with the state of the world that we co create.

It is not going to resolve at the persona level or via the persona mentality because all of that is about maintaining a control mentality over (one's) Life.

(Further comments)
We already ARE some far-future civilisation and the warnings and lessons of our distant past are held in stories that have come through in one form or another, even when the details are forgot and the essence simplified into folk tales and woven into the fabric of the world and times of the people who told them.
More than enough wisdom to awaken and realign humanity with reality is available, but the stories to which import and favour are given are those that serve to validate and justify a masked wish to self-specialness in which his thinking convinces him that his thinking is his guide and protector from reality, by cultivating a sense of withdrawal from, and control over it.
Even amidst the 'end times' of a globalized magnification of slave-thinking to a machine mentality does humanity 'see' the problem as other people who are blind, selfish or deluded, rather than awaken to this as a self-realisation.

Passing the buck, or playing to win by evading and minimising blame-humiliation-rejection-penalty, is a masking and defence of distraction and deception that has no real regard for others, for the mask has become taken as the 'self' that requires survival at the cost of honesty, of love's recognition and relation.
The thinking of the mask cannot afford love's honesty - and so it is portrayed as weak or heretical - insane even! - by the cliques of self-interest that seek to be free of the perceived  'constraints' of a truly shared reality. And the form of love is used in guile of presentation to soften and win advantage over the gullible.

In the digital era one can engage attention in screen reality or don a virtual reality headset and be so immersed in experience that one forgets it is a surrogate extension.
This is a reflection in our world of a process of displacement that is already active in our minds, as the desire to get or become different than what actually is.
Prior to the experience of physical separation is a sense of loss and an impulse of getting, that cannot be separated from each other, for the one supports the other in displacing the awareness of All That Is - as it is, through the engagement of division and interpretation that seeks to define and control self-reality instead of yielding into and flowing as the be-ing that is our only true existence - regardless of whatever layers or levels of 'experience' that we mutually define and believe real in its moment of appearance.

No one lives and is existence-aware by their own word or deed.
When the displacements from reality are of such a complexity as to become unworkable - even by ingenious redistributions of man made manipulations - then a period of adjustment is inevitable, in which what was believed true simply is not and does not hold. And what is true, simply is and will not be denied.

True foundations are simply evident when the false is seen truly - though it may feel as if a loveless and fearful darkness has been replaced by a gift of light.
The shadow cannot let go of a shadow. That which IS real of you wakens to its true nature. A different world must arise to a different foundation, though it takes time of willingness to release and accept realignment with recognition rather than the old thinking reaction-habit.

The I experience

I use the term 'I' or else cant say much! - but if pushed to show or uncover what the 'I' is - I have to tell you I cant find it! Nor define or measure it. It is a virtual self - that is - it is not really here at all despite serving as a context for a world-life experience.

So what is being known directly - exists as shifting thoughts of I or other thought-experience rising and falling to an otherwise formless and limitless quality of awareness.

Our perception-experience is a selective reflection. That it is actually a harmony of parts is a reflection of a unified process of being.

But an exclusive identification with the self concepts - or self-image  - makes a distortion experience of apparently independent yet conflicted separate thing-ness amidst a world of things.

And the release of this idea of separate self will allows recognizing the power that actually moves all things one. Absent of all coercion.

The experiential embrace of - and abiding in - presence... without interference, invites true foundation to restore true perspective.

Our words don't have to determine the truth of anything - but that communication occurs at all is witness to shared purpose.

This is the unified and unifying foundation of All That Is: shared purpose.

In attempting private agendas the identification with an apparently independent 'I', sets up a drama and that can be addictive at the level of its engagement. But without the definitions and roles that we mutually ascribe the simple presence of all that is - is a truly unifies awareness revealed to have always been all that is.

Trying to fit perspective of One into a mind in division (a mind in a body in a world) cannot and will never be possible, for such thinking is not itself discerning or feeling/intuiting existence.

My willingness to sketch the unspeakable is of the desire to share the glimpse and open curiosity from a mesmerised attention that thinks it knows and so neglects to look.

That which gave rise to all manifest being is not absent, but in our virtual orphanhood (thinking) we absent ourselves from a direct participance. The symptoms of a our human planet are a call to wake - not to react in fear - but to see fear with new eyes. To see the false foundations from which a parasitic intent usurped the extending and sharing of true relational being.

The fear of love makes the body dense. One's individuality is tangibly and visibly identified by body-mind - but this is abused as a hideout for self concept and dumping ground for guilt and anger.

Who does not know what love is to the body... enlightening, joyous, free and opening in gratitude. Only the blocks to awareness of love cover this over.

So a curiosity to notice allows re-evaluation of such blocks and a shift occurs.

Love is natural to true presence - not as a social or personal manipulation. Love is not a personal or social manipulation. The Now is a point of timelessness when releasing the 'story of me'.

There is always so much more to existence-being than thought or belief could imagine - hence recognizing the blocks or limits and letting more in, such as we are freely willing. There is no coercion in the unified existence.

Always by invitation to willingness. Never coercive upon us -but without persistence and consistency of focus, our vacillations cancel each other out and we prevaricate in a confusion of no real fulfilment at all.

The virtual 'I' is a sort of placeholder concept for the I Am of existence - and yet there IS no substitution for the I Am of existence. This IS our true life and our true world, and the surrogate experiences of a virtual reality in which we seek the 'more' but find the less - and the loss - is as if we had put reality on hold whilst playing very seriously in an imagination.

A wish has all the power that is given it, but the power of shared willingness allows what is already moving to rise to a true awareness in which all is appreciated as it is - free of a personal bias or wish it be different. Here is sanity. Here is peace - and all that can only be fully or truly known, appreciated, loved and shared.
