no mind: includes a definition of no-mind and relates the Absolute and mind of god to childhood experiences where we were told to wake up because we were daydreaming

no mind: the consciousness of being in the mind of god

As a child, we have all experienced the Absolute Mind of no mind, Atman, Brahmin, or the Mind of God. Yet, when we were in that space, we were brought back by our parents who taught that this wastime wasting day dreaming.

no mind -- definition

no mind : the state of not being trapped in memory or processing the past; of awareness of experience without active thought, judgment or condition

no mind -- consciousness of being

Have you ever been sitting quietly somewhere and suddenly come back to the realisation that time has passed and you don't know where you've been ..?

Nor have you any idea of what went on in that time .. ?
Nor were you aware of your own breath nor your own heartbeat ...
Yet you were fully awake and conscious ... not asleep nor unconscious ...

This is no mind .. this is the spinning stillness of the void/vastness/no-thing ..beyond the experience of OM because OM is the echo of the first manifestation

no mind -- awareness and bliss

For there to be Awareness, pure or otherwise, there has to be a separation .. something has to be aware of .. there has to be a subject and object .. the entity who is aware and the thing that one is aware of. ..

Similarly, for there to be the experience of Bliss, there has to be a separation .. the observer, the act of observation and that which is observed.

You can never say "I have experienced pure bliss" or "I have experienced pure awareness", because such statements imply observation, comparison and interpretation .. based on a learned belief or conditioned response which occupies both time and space.

That which is sometimes misnamed "awareness" or "bliss" is a consciousness NOT aware of itself .. in other words, it is beyond time and space and interpretation.

Seeking 'The Divine'

To label something as "Divine" or otherwise implies a comparison of less than and greater than soto be aware of one's self as divine is to separate that part from the rest.

"Divine" cannot be separated from "not divine" except in your mind .. and the point of theseparation is relative to your mind's understanding or interpretation of what may or may not be "Divine"

Therefore, one's personality idea of one's Divine-ness (or Divinity) is an ego trip.

It is the teaching of some sort of ideology .. these concepts of "Divine Awareness", "Bliss" etcare something to be sought .. that causes the Western mind to start seekingbecause some "ideal" is painted which has got to be better than that which the seeker is presentlyexperiencing .. otherwise the seeker would not be bothered seeking.

no mind is beyond duality

The Consciousness of Atman .. Brahman .. the Mind of God .. is the consciousness of undifferentiated no thing

I know that I have been in that space and that I have walked between these worlds .. but I can NEVER say that I have experienced these states .. who is the I who experienced them?

What I can say that I have experienced is an awareness which is so pure that there is no interpretation placed .. and there is no lasting sensual impression or feeling ..

This is taught in the Tao .. which describes the art of "looking at nothing and seeing everything" .. "listening to nothing and hearing everything"

The point of this exercise being that the moment attention becomes fixed on any point of time or space, consciousness changes from 5D to 3D awareness ..

acceptance of no mind

Descending into Brahman, Atman, the Void, the Absolute .. is the next level of the conscious mind holding on to some idea of its identity as separate .. there is no-thing to see and no-thing to hear.

It is an accepting .. and a letting go of control .. it is not surrender in the truest sense of the word because there is NO-THING to surrender to and thus it cannot be sought.

This is moving beyond duality into no mind

Anything in duality can be called illusion, because its experience is a subjective comparison, dependant on observation, comparison and interpretation .. based on a learned belief or conditioned response which occupies both time and space.

Beyond duality lies the silence.

For "My God is greater than your God"
"My Ego is greater than your Ego"

Transpersonal Notebooks

Transpersonal is about the Consciousness (which some call Spirituality) which lies beyond what some call the personality.

It is about becoming aware of the seen and the unseen, the conscious, unconscious subconscious and supraconscious memories we carry which are the sources of programs, patterns and beliefs that govern our lives and our thinking - and then moving beyond.
