If you are thinking, you are missing 99% of what is going on around you, and you cannot hear what someone else is saying. How much of the time are you thinking? Probably all of the time, so that is the amount of time you are not aware of what is going on or what others are saying.
We are told as young children to tell the truth and then told to be polite. Being polite is saying something good to someone even if that is not what we see is true. That makes what we say a lie. So, in essence, we are being told to tell the truth and then to lie. That causes confusion in children. They are told that “good children” are polite, and they want to be a “good child.” Many parents repeat this lesson to the child over and over. Children will accept anything their parents tell them as true. Do you see the confusion? They are told to both tell the truth and to lie.
Thought is our only problem, so what can we do that will solve the problem of thought? You could ask yourself this question: “If thought is the only problem, can there be thought that isn’t thought? If there is what might it be?” Creation is a possible answer you might get. Creation is a new thought, something never thought before. It is a thought that comes from nowhere, or nothing. Most of our thoughts come from other thoughts.
The way to tell Creation from thought is to find a blank space, the space between two thoughts.
If you hear something you haven’t heard before, that is creation. If it is a thought you had before, then it is from thought repeating itself. If there was no reason to think or say it, then you didn’t say it in an expectation to manipulate to get something, that is creation. Creation is saying something from nothing.
Speaking the truth of yourself will empty your mind so that you can find that space between the thoughts. Speaking the truth means to speak without judgment, criticism, feelings, an agenda/manipulation, a need to be right, an argument or any attachment to what is being said. If it contains any of those things, then it is not speaking the truth, and it is thought repeating itself.
If you are going to say something from nothing, then the first thing is to get rid of all the “somethings” – that is emptying the mind. Are your thoughts just dressed up words, or are they naked?
Experiment with the things that I say, don’t just read them and believe them. To experiment is to see it in your own life, to test it. In the experiment you might discover yourself. For example, if you see a context of your life like unworthiness, you could experiment to see what it is like to be worthy. You might dress up and act like you are worthy, and maybe speak in that manner, doing it on purpose. You might discover something by doing this. However, remember that both worthy and unworthy are an illusion, and you are stuck in that illusion; so the experiment might show you the ridiculousness of both sides or whatever it is that comes up for you to see.
It is like fixing up a house. Maybe you start out not knowing how to do anything, and then as an experiment you start to figure out how to do things. You do what needs to be done first, and that is the thing that is right in front of you. You don’t need to tackle everything at once, for that is impossible. Don’t make this more difficult for yourself. Just look at what is there in front of you in the moment.
Here is the secret: The thing that is there in front of you is what is blocking everything else. Even if this sounds impossible, just do it.
Sometimes we want things to stay the way they are even if we are in pain and suffering. That is what we are used to, and even though it is causing us discomfort, we also feel comfortable with it. It is the known, and we know what we will get is what is expected. That is another aspect of the known — that we will get some benefit from it which we might not even be aware of. This is important to discover as well. What is it giving you? What benefit do you get for doing or being this way?
A lot of females have been treated badly by males, and they feel like they are victims. Males have been beating on females psychologically, physically and every way they could for thousands of years. Males are more overtly violent than females, and everything that females do is at the effect of that. You are a victim of it. The males are also a victim of the females because anything you control, controls you. Females think they are counteracting the violence of the males, yet they are causing it to continue by trying to control the male and by saying they are a victim.
In order to clear that syndrome, I ask all females to give up being part of the “woman’s club” and all the males to give up being part of the “man’s club”. This means to drop all the beliefs that you hold about being a male or a female and to end perpetuating those beliefs, end passing them on. We need to end all the anger and resentment and revenge that we hold against each other.
In order to clear this chain, to end this cycle, rather than emulating their greatness, I suggest that you fix their flaws, and you do that from within yourself. If you fix the flaw in your way of being, you would fix the trap of belief. The flaw is belief. Belief is a frozen thought. Belief comes from memory, and memory is faulty.
Speaking the truth in each moment will cause transformation to happen. This is not speaking from thinking. It is speaking from the unknown, without any repeating. Repeating is belief.
The size of the thing that is blocking you is so large that it is really the responsibility of the person to see it. It is presented to you constantly over and over again, and whether you block it and attack or open it and visit it is up to you. You are the only one who can get it.
I suggest that you sit down and take the time to write your life story out, however long it takes. Make it as long or short as you care to. Write it out and maybe have someone else do it, too, and then exchange them with each other. The reason I ask you to have someone else to read it is because it is important someone else see it.
Stay away from the pride, the shame and the drama. Stay as much as you can with recounting your story as it happened without embellishing it. And if you can, where you might normally slant it to yourself, slant it to the other person. For example if you felt you were the victim, make yourself out to be the aggressor or make the other person the victim. Notice the way your memory stored it because most people don’t think they ever did anything wrong in their whole life, that it was always the other person. It doesn’t have to be very long and drawn out, but make it very personal: “These are the forces that made me to be the way I am.”
Perhaps, that will open up things that you didn’t already know. You will be telling it from one context, and the other person will be reading it from another. If you do that, you might find out a lot of new things about yourself.
The more the thing that controls your life, the more difficult it is to see because that is the thing you are going to be protecting the most. It seems that people want to stay the way they have always been, not what they can become.
Telling your life story is a way to empty yourself, to get those things out that are stuck inside. Creation requires you start from being empty. This is the beginning of transformation.
