Reality Transcends the Mind

Reality Transcends the Mind

Scientific facts have revealed, and will continue to reveal, that the reality that we perceive is merely a construct of the mind, and not a genuine representation of the actual state of Reality. We may find more and more sophisticated ways of describing how this reality manifests, but they will only ever be approximations of Reality, not Reality itself. We will never be able to truly perceive, or describe the true nature of Reality because we are always looking at it from outside; we are always observing it from the point of view of being separate from it. Reality itself is un-qualified, it is beyond the qualities that can be observed from a limited angle. From our apparently separate viewpoint, we are not able to perceive the actual condition of Reality itself. Where we err is in our tendency to focus our attention on the separate qualities of Reality, rather than on the quality of Reality itself. We are concerned with how things work or how they appear, rather than on what they mean!

Understanding is not belief, as belief is a product of the mind. It is a convention of the human mind to try to know what is infinite and indivisible. The actuality of consciousness is beyond the limits of comprehension. The revelation of Reality comes through the transcendence of perception, memory and belief. Understanding is freedom from the constraints of metallization and ideology. The conventions of the mind are transcended through the understanding of the paradox of Reality.

Non-duality : The Treasure of Enlightenment

The external world is a collective reflection of our individual states of being. All of our experiences are reflections of our present quality of relationship. Everything that we are experiencing is completely appropriate in regards to our present condition of awareness. Everything including our present experience is acceptable and appropriate for the processes of our conscious development. The circumstance of our existence is meant to be, it is God’s will for it to be this way. If we are to enjoy Satsang we must not be in duality about non-perfection. Satsang is about freedom from preferences. True happiness is about transcendence of doubt. To be in Satsang is to be in utter joy in the midst of apparent pain, suffering and death. Conditional existence is just a limitation, the ego is always trying to make conditional existence into something other than what it is. The way is to transcend the inherent nature of conditions. To enjoy and love life in the midst of pain and suffering is the enjoyment of Satsang. When you realize your native condition, you will not be in despair about the quality of your experience, you will simply be happy. Non-duality is the essence of Satsang, it is the treasure of true enlightenment.

 


The Way of Happiness

The Way of Happiness

When we are happy we enjoy freedom from all modalities. Ultimately, it is our own identity which is the source of our suffering. True happiness is found through the transcendence of limitation, as witnessing the quality of our attachment to appearance is the key to our redemption.  When freedom is enjoyed, happiness is found to radiate from all conditions. This is the way of happiness.

Ideologies are Illusions

Enlightenment is the realization of Truth. The less we deceive ourselves, the closer we are to enlightenment. Ideologies are prisons of the mind. The Truth transcends the limits of conception. When you understand, you are free from all mental prisons. With understanding comes the transcendence of what is untrue. With true awakening, we enjoy freedom from all forms of illusion.

Happiness is Freedom

Happiness is freedom from the subject and the object. To perceive something other than reality as real is the essence of illusion and suffering. Ultimately, all appearances are false; happiness is freedom from all perception and conception. Happiness is not dependent on imagery, as happiness is communicated through the transcendence of imagery. Happiness is the unqualified Reality of existence. One has only to drop their limited qualifications to enjoy the infinite Reality of true happiness.
