I would say consequences that have lead to that moment, which was suffering.
'Don't be', as in, 'not being', to describe it, there was a sudden contemplation, in which i saw the cause, if i'm not here, there is no one to
suffer, it comes from myself that wants to be equal, that wants to be seen and to be loved.
There was a flow of energy which was so strong, so powerful and comforting, whatever happens, it will be ok, trust in whatever will be.
It was like taking back control, one could kick the body if they wished, but that would be alright, they were no longer able to hurt me, there was
simply no one there.
And yet, yes i never really left, that is the fun part about all this, it was a change of perception.
There is still a me being, but there is no attachment, no becoming, i am what i am, a human being.
The steps, they were not taken before, but after that moment, this is something to explore because for me to be quite and just observe seemed and is
very natural, it followed naturally.
But how can we explore it more, i shared my story on this, it was a lead up, no deliberate steps taken, this will be difficult i think but we can
There is no great knowledge, i'm just as uneducated as i have ever been.
To be something is of no importance to me, i'm human and that is enough.
What is important to me, is to reach people to think, in order to see through this false truth which is our reality.
Thinking is not a problem, ideas have to come from somewhere, and they lead to inventions.
We explore, see something and an idea pops up, either it is the beginning of something new, or not, that is to be seen.
So far we are in the moment, not restrained by anything.
But thought is also time and distance.
If we see something, enjoy it, why should thoughts interfere with that moment.
But we are also recording that moment, it becomes a memory and we think about that moment later on, then the past, which is our recorded image, comes
in the form of a thought.
And while thinking that, the present moment has gone by without us noticing it.
We were thinking about then, a moment in the past.
A teaching is like a seed planted in the mind, over time it grows out be an obstacle which prevents a clear perception, pure becomes polluted.
If we see something which is not in compliance with what we are taught, we will say it is wrong, that teaching has become truth to us.
It is like a magical spell which is not easily broken when one is bewitched.
Of course i'm talking about religion now, but also deep imbedded in us is the traditional and cultural behavior, seen and copied from others.
We are a product of the society in which we are born and grow up.
In Africa , people still think that there are witches, last week, a woman was tortured and burned to death because they thought she was a witch.
They were taught about that and until today it is a strong believe which is passed from old to young until the day someone breaks through this circle
and also has the ability to reach out and put a stop to this nonsense.
Thinking about the future 'i want to become' which means we have an image of how we want to be, what we want to be.
That image again is an recording of the past, we have seen something and we want to be like that, or we have our eyes on a goal to reach, be
successful, rich, a doctor, a scientist.
It all comes down to one who wanders in time, and one who knows because it has been taught so, when thoughts arise, we are either in the past or
future but there is no awareness of the present.
Freedom is not found in the outside world, but inwardly, so to speak, there is.
Because of detachment, which means that there is space and energy to observe, to learn about oneself, which is the rest of mankind.
I'm no different than anyone else, if i know myself, i know mankind.
Physical we might be different, i'm not you, and you are not me, but we share the same source, the same needs for our survival.
There is still a me there always will be until i die, otherwise i would not be typing all this.
But detached from the past, from labels, and from the notion of wanting to become.
A me without an image of who I am, just living and being aware through observation of what is.
