NOBODY CAN GIVE US FREEDOM

Nobody Can Give Us Freedom

We already have innate freedom,
but are induced to think we have not.

We are pure consciousness.
No one can give this to us or take it away.

Don’t lose your freedom by demanding your freedom.

Are We Being Hypnotised?

Is our attention induced, captured or fascinated?

Hypnosis: the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction and modifies their behaviour. From Greek hupnos ‘sleep’+ -osis.

……

Truth Never Dies

We are truth.

Death is no big deal;
it’s natural to move on.

Life is about realising our ultimate potential.
What is life, if not lived to its true potential?

Dystopia And Utopia

Dystopia: an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one. 

Utopia: an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect.

These places are not imaginary.

Dystopia is our contaminated mind.
Utopia is our perfectly pure mind.

The affects on the mind
effect the planet.

Compassion In Action

Compassion in action is empathy;
the ability to understand and share.

    it is all there: knowlege, freedom, love.., right from the start. Already present before we were born and still present when we are gone. All these things are already in the bag so the speak. There is nothing to search for, nothing to achieve, as we are what we are looking for. Just do it without getting in the way, and then see what happens. This all looksl too beautiful, too obvious, too simple; This definitely is something too good to be true.. Open your eyes and see for yourself.

    Wu Wei – Doing Nothing 無爲: Wu Wei means – in Chinese – non-doing or ‘doing nothing’. It sounds like a pleasant invitation to relax or worse, fall into laziness or apathy. Yet this concept is key to the noblest kind of action according to the philosophy of Taoism – and is at the heart of what it means to follow Tao or The Way. According to the central text of Taoism, the Tao Te King: ‘The Way never acts yet nothing is left undone’. This is the paradox of wu wei. It doesn’t mean not acting, it means ‘effortless action’ or ‘actionless action’. It means being at peace while engaged in the most frenetic tasks so that one can carry these out with maximum skill and efficiency. Something of the meaning of wu wei is captured when we talk of being ‘in the zone’ – at one with what we are doing, in a state of profound attention and flow.

    The notion of the Tao is pretty close to the Hebrew notion of Ruach (pronounced roo-akh). Ruach is the Hebrew word for spirit, breath, or wind. When spoken, the word engages one’s breath and lungs. The first mention of Ruach in the Bible is in the very first chapter of Genesis: “And the earth was a formless and desolate emptiness, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit (Ruach) of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.”

    Ruach is also described as Wind and Breath. For example, in Psalm 51:11 when David prayed: “Do not cast me away from your presence and do not take your Ruach from me.” Being in the breath of Ruach, is like being one with the Tao. Similarly, Ruach Elohim means the breath of God. In many references in the Old Testament, the Ruach Elohim comes upon an individual and allows him to speak for the Lord. In Genesis 41:38, the Pharaoh said of Moses, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Ruach Elohim?”

    In relationship to living creatures, those with a living spirit, it is the Ruach that gives life. Ruach, being intangible but present, also signifies pure consciousness and creative vitality. For example, in Ezekiel 37, Ruach gave life to the dry bones that Ezekiel saw in his vision. Once the words are spoken over them, they come to life and grow muscle, tendons, ligaments and flesh. In this sense, it is the Ruach, and the Ruach only, which gives life, where previously there was none.

    10 – In the World

    Nirmanakaya is the fully awakened state of being in the world. Its action is like the moon reflecting in a hundred bowls of water. The moon has no desire to reflect, but that is its nature. This state is dealing with the earth with ultimate simplicity, transcending following the example of anyone. It is the state of “total flop” or “old dog”. You destroy whatever needs to be destroyed, you subdue whatever needs to be subdued, and you care for whatever needs your care.
