So you are saying, "Just be, everything is fine"? How does enlightenment manifest in your awareness? Do you have any meaningful decision making in your life at all?

You are being!! There is only BEING.
'Becoming' is time based and is just an idea that happens now. Now is being all there is.


How does enlightenment manifest in your awareness?
Light is appearing in awareness - it manifests as This - This light continually appears different (the ever changing present). That which 'knows' (is aware) the light is continually changing is the unchanging presence

.Do you have any meaningful decision making in your life at all?
Decisions (choices) appear to be made but it is not me doing it. I am the witness only (all seeing, all knowing and ever present..........awareness).

It is realized that it is not 'my life'. Reality appears to consist of a seer and the seen - both arise as presence - the two are one.

This sounds incredibly disabling... I wonder, where did you get these ideas from?

Disabling for whom?
At the moment you are running around seeking for God - that is what God plays - he loves a game of hide and seek - it keeps him busy.
What would you have to do if you realized God?

To not have something to seek for would be a horrible thought for an individual - it needs something. The individual is always on the move toward something - so that is why you may feel that this message is disabling - this is like a stop.
You may realize at some point that you never move - that movement happens on you/in you.
Here is a video (ignore the title - it is explained that 'reincarnation' is nothing but a concept) which may help you look at reality in a slightly different way.

We have been taught about the world and have many ideas about many things but it is a good idea to look to see if the ideas we have about reality are the same as our direct experience of it.

What you are actually is beyond words, but it would be not untrue to say you are nothing whatsoever other than pure, infinite, disembodied consciousness/intelligence; a field of miraculous infinite light; God dreaming itself; an infinite point of pure potential; or the infinite implications of nothing whatsoever.

The immediate presentation of this unspeakable actuality is the field of your experience, which is an instantaineously appearing virtual field of Radiant Presence as apparent qualities. This is the actuality of which every/ and any/ thing that you think exists consists. This is inclusive and complete; nothing whatever other than this field exists. In short, the entirety of Reality is the "bubble" of YOUR experience, the field of Radiant Presence, which alone exists.

This is the totality of Reality. This is not theoretical, but is actually, immediately real; always the case right here right now.

I seek God within. There is no running around. I enter into the well of silence within my being. God does not play games. Your idea of God speaks to your own beliefs and preferences, but God is an essential force of nature, not a toddler.

When I am able to be objective about life, when I am able to express the Mind of God, then my life will be a vehicle for the will of God to manifest in the world. I will know what I must do, where I must go and whom I must be with. It is part of Knowledge, you see. What is already known is awaiting for me to be able to receive and to experience it. For this I must be able and willing to relinquish my personal ideas, beliefs and ambitions, preferences and ideologies. I must open myself so that my deeper nature may speak, unobstructed by the mind that serves it.

"You were created to be a part of your Source. Your life is communication, for communication is life. Communication is the extension of Knowledge." [1]

"Humanity has lost its relationship with life and now seeks desperately within the realms of imagination and fantasy to find that which has been lost. Be happy today, then, that the means for life’s reclamation have been given to you so that you may give yourself to your practice and to your destiny. [2]

I agree with this completely.


"The correct attitude must also include the willingness to correct anything that obstructs the reclamation of Knowledge—those beliefs, those attitudes, those ambitions, those cherished needs and those personal demands that infringe on and limit your ability to experience life as it is, as it will be the next moment and as it is destined to be in the future ... You must continue to push the boundary of honesty and come back to what you know, which is distinct from what you want or believe."

There is no inside or outside to what there is.
The silence and the noise arise as one.
The seer and the scene is one.
God is motion and rest.

God does not play games.

Then he is just a joker. There is only what there is but God (all that is) can't seem to find himself anywhere - and that is because he is no where (now-here).
