The Freedom Of Being Thought-Less
I often receive messages from people telling
me what "actions" they have taken to "try" to achieve their
objectives, or what they need to "do" to realise some objective.
The first thing I would like to mention is
that the word "try" should ideally not exist in the human language -
we either "do" or "do not do".
"Trying" to "do"
something will almost inevitably guarantee failure because the whole concept of
"try" originates from the rational, Ego aspect of Mind which
"thinks about doing something" believing "action" is
required in order to "achieve" the objective.
That said - should we be "doing"
anything at all in order to achieve our objectives? After all, unless we are
adept at Telekinesis, "things" do not move or arrange themselves
"as if by magic".
Well it depends on the motivation.
"Doing" something with the objective of "pushing the physical
world around" hoping to achieve "something" will often result in
However, Inspired action, in other words "right
action" in response to inspiration, intuition, or "gut feelings"
from within, often originating in the Solar Plexus or as some other Inner
Feeling, is always something we should do without hesitation.
The apparent paradox is non-action leads to
"correct action" or the direct realisation of whatever we truly need
as opposed to what we "think" we need.
This important truth is taught extensively by
the ancient knowledge of the ages and in religion to the extent that the inner
meaning is understood:
"Therefore I say unto you, Take no
thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for
your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body
than raiment? Look at the birds. They don't plant, harvest, or gather the
harvest into barns. Yet, your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more
than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they
grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God
so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into
the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore
take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or,
Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles
seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you. -- Matthew 6:25-33
These teachings by the person who became
known by the name Jesus are very profound, but if only they are interpreted
What Jesus is saying quite simply is that
only by "non-action" and
"non-thought" can "all these things be added unto you".
Of course that does not mean we must not
"think" in absolute terms, but only that we should not
"think" about "how" to achieve our objectives - all action
should be inspired or seamless in nature, and therefore as automatic as
For example - would we "think"
No - if we thought about the precise action
and of the sequence, process and speed of placing one foot in front of the
other, we would probably walk awkwardly or even stumble, especially if walking
down stairs for example.
Look at a multi-legged creature such as a
centipede or millipede with numerous legs. What would happen if the creature
used the process of thought to "decide" which legs to move and in
what sequence? It would probably go nowhere
Breathing is another example.
Do we think about breathing?
No of course not. If we stopped to actually
think about the physical process of breathing, then breathing might become very
erratic, or even stop for a time.
In both the examples of walking and
breathing, we never apply thought to the process, but simply have Faith that they will occur perfectly as
And so it should be in Life experience
Another wise person of ancient times said:
"In the practice of the Way every day
something is dropped. Less and less do you need to force things until you
finally arrive at non-action. When nothing is done nothing is left undone".
Which confirms the words of Jesus when he
"Which of you by taking thought can
add one cubit unto his stature?"
This Principle can once again be summarised
by the words of Jesus when he says:
"But seek ye first the kingdom of
God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you".
What this truly means is to realise God, Source
within, thereby becoming a more open channel of Expression for God, Source, and
everything we need on Earth, just as with the animals, birds and plants will be
"added to" or experience in abundance.
Otherwise all "ye of little Faith"
will continue to struggle by "thinking" and "doing" from
the rational, conscious, Ego Mind, in the hope of physically achieving
As we have discussed in recent Newsletters,
our "mission" or "objective" on Earth is to achieve a state
broadly known as "Enlightenment" through the interaction with, and
overcoming the challenges of the physical world and the people we encounter.
In broad terms, Enlightenment embodies the
principles of Service to Others Before Self, Unconditional Love of All,
Subjugation of the Ego - the rational, thinking Mind.
Buddhism in particular deals with the Ego in
its definition of achieving "Nirvana" and therefore liberation from
"Samsara", the "wheel of birth, life, death and rebirth",
in other words, liberation from reincarnation in to the physical world.
Liberation from Samsara is also considered to
be "liberation from misery and suffering" associated with
incarnation, but through such "misery and suffering", which is
wrought through the Ego, we Evolve through Experience on Earth.
Nirvana, again in broad terms, is said by
Buddhists to be attained through:
Freedom from "hate".
Freedom from "desire"
Freedom from "delusion"
Nirvana then is considered to be a state of
supreme Peace, Harmony and Joy at the highest level, while still living in the
physical world, knowing, realising and experiencing "Life" for what it truly is - a
fully inclusive Oneness of All.
A person attaining this state is therefore
not being prone to influence by "external" illusory factors of the
material world, which are seen for what they truly are.
Now the first two conditions for Nirvana are
"Hate" includes any form of
"thinking negatively" or "wishing bad things to happen"
towards any person, form of life or situation. To do so is to consider people,
life or "things" separate or unworthy in some way, perhaps because of
"Hate" is also very dualistic,
always being directed at someone or something "else".
The opposite of hate is Unconditional Love.
"Greed" is desiring,
"grasping", "clinging on to" etc material possessions or
experiences of the senses, for reasons other than basic necessity, e.g. to
gratify the physical senses, "keep up appearances", portray an image
of wealth, superiority, power etc. Greed
always puts self before others, leads to never being satisfied, and is a major
cause of human misery and suffering, which is self-inflicted through Ego.
The opposite of Greed is Unconditional
Service To Others Before Self.
The third factor, "delusion" is
probably the least clear, and most fundamental, because it is from delusion
that ultimately most other factors adversely influencing Spiritual Evolution
In broad terms, the opposite of delusion is
Delusion includes many factors, but most stem
from one fundamental factor: believing the material world to be
"real" and "substantial", and therefore taking it too
seriously. If the material world is deemed to be "real", then a
person will become bound by its influence, and subject to its own self-imposed
rules and conditions, including need to conform to "norms" of "society",
power, "standard of living" and all those other things that people
spend their lives striving either to achieve or to avoid.
If on the other hand we know the physical
world for what it truly is - an incredible opportunity to Evolve through
Experience - without being "sucked in to" and therefore subject to
its illusory and delusory nature, and while fully recognising and realising our
true Spiritual Divine Nature and Source of Power, then we are Free.
There is a passage in the Bible, which, if
properly understood, illustrates this:
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They
answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how
sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant
abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever. If the Son
therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. -- John 8:32 - 36
The person known as Jesus is saying that if
you "know the truth, the truth shall set you free". In
biblical times to "know" does not mean to know something at an
academic level, but to Know at an infinitely deeper, more experiential level,
in other words to "know" at "first hand" beyond any doubt. The
disciples say to Jesus words to the effect "well surely if we are the
descendents of the original Divinely "seeded" human race, we have
been born here to be free, and therefore must be free now.
Jesus goes on to say that "if anyone is
in a state of inner detachment from Source - original sin - they will be a
servant of, or entrapped within the outer, material world, and cannot at that
stage experience the higher, or inner bliss of abiding as a free Expression of
Source, be longer subject to the phantasm of the material world".
He concludes by saying that once a person
sees beyond the illusion of the material World to Be Within Power and
Expression of the Inner, Source, they are truly Free.
So how may we become "Free" leading
to Enlightenment or the state the Buddhists known as "Nirvana" and
other cultures known by many other names?
Well ultimately such states are a journey,
which can only be achieved through Experience. However, as usual, the beginning
of the journey commences with an understanding of the true nature of what must
be experienced and attained.
Well the answer to these questions might seem
to be somewhat of a paradox.
To achieve these States of Being on Earth
ultimately requires non-Experience and non-Thought originating from the
rational, conscious, Ego Mind, to give way to Expression of Divine Mind of
A major factor differentiating these two
states is that actions driven and motivated by the rational, conscious, Ego
Mind require conscious effort, whereas Expression of Divine Source Mind does
not - it becomes a seamless aspect of our very Being.
So how then is this achieved in reality?
Well clearly we cannot Express our Inner
Divine, Source Nature while the conscious, rational, Ego Mind has control.
The rational, conscious Ego Mind is like a
small child who demands this, that and the other, and proceeds to have a
tantrum if it is not forthcoming. Very often it is easier for the parents to
simply give in, let the child have their way, to bring peace again.
In the adult world the Ego is constantly
comparing itself to "others" - home, possessions, lifestyle etc - and
becomes agitated if it perceives lack by comparison.
There is a constant battle to live up to the
expectations of family, relations, friends etc, so as not to appear to be a
"failure" in some way, especially by comparison to other family
members or school friends who "made it good".
This has become increasingly the case over
the last few decades as exponentially more material temptations have appeared,
especially relating to technology, thereby vastly increasing the pressure to
"keep up" and maintain the "standard of living".
This, Dear Reader, can and never will bring enduring
happiness or Enlightenment.
Our needs as humans are, and always have been
very simple - natural whole foods, basic shelter and clothing. "Modern
society" has progressively confused and complicated these fundamentals and
basics for commercial and control purposes.
With this has become an increasing perceived
need to "think" and "do" more, just to "keep up"
with the "demands and expectations of modern society".
Blessed with Divine Freewill we always have a
Free the Mind.
Again, the person who became known as Jesus
"Therefore take no thought, saying,
What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be
clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly
Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto
So what then does this mean?
Well quite simply that as Expressions of
Source, The Divine, God, Source already knows every single human being, as well
as all other life forms, why we are here, and what we genuinely require in
order to fulfil our reason for Being here. We are all Expressions of Source, We
Are Source, we only need to Realise Source.
We do not need to think about anything and
especially do not need to take physical actions based upon that thought. Neither
should we ever compare ourselves with others - there are no "others".
In fact there is no "good" or
"evil" people. These are human concepts. Everyone is here for a
reason, to gain specific Experience as Unconditional Expressions of Source
Perfection, the entirety of the human race, The All, Whole is Balance.
So not only must we move away from a
"human way of thinking", we must move away from "thinking"
altogether. As the person known as Jesus
said: "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his
It will be clear to many, when "trying
to do something", that the more we think about it or "try" to do
it, the more difficult it seems - even the very simplest things. This is
because such thoughts and associated actions are of the rational, conscious,
Ego Mind which insists that we need to "think" about something before
In Truth, Source, of Which we are All a
Divine Expression, and Whose Mind, Consciousness, Energy, Perfection and
Unconditional Love flows through us All, knows of our genuine needs before a
conscious thought even enters our awareness.
The "delusion" described by Buddhist
"Nirvana" is believing we know better than Source, and that material
world and society is "real" and "important" in some way.
The absolute state of Buddhist Nirvana is
experienced through being free from the self-inflicted "misery and
suffering" arising from interaction with the material world. Once
attained, the delusion is transcended, and there can be no "hate" or
Now we do not need to be a Buddhist or
subscribe to any other culture, tradition or belief system to realise the
states known as "Enlightenment" or "Nirvana".
By subjugating the Ego, Living in the Moment
and not "thinking", we allow the Infinite Power and Love of Source to
Flow and Express to bring Perfection. Once we attain this State of Being, we
need never "think" about any form of notional needs, desires, etc,
because our Experience must always be Perfect, "for your heavenly
Father - Source - knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye
first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be
added unto you".
Our only "concern" for
"others" should be in the context of extending Selfless Service and Expressing
Divine Love, and not to compare ourselves with.
Once we cease to "think" we start
to simply Be. That is True Joy and Freedom.
So It Is.
next Sunday, I wish you a most Joyful, Healthy, Abundant week.
