Being Aware - A More Placid Existence


Written by Mathew Naismith

It's obvious to me that being aware gives me a more accepting disposition, this in turn gives me a more placid existence, this state however is only acquired if one is aware beyond certain conditionings set down in the following.

I have observed that many people are struggling with what is going on in the world at present, I have also observed that others who ignore and /or separate themselves from these adversities, seem content and placid, this is until they are themselves directly influenced by these adversities adversely.  

The following is but a guide to a more aware and accepting placid existence.

~ Condition yourself to all of  what is going on in human consciousness, even to the adversities, this will allow you to cope better with these adversities when they influence you. Staying ignorant or separate to these adversities actually makes you a lot more vulnerable than other people who are conditioned to these adversities. This however doesn't mean you allow these adversities to condition you to become these adversities, it means to only become aware of these adversities. You can be within these adversities without being of these adversities.

~  Now this is a big one, try not to judge what is wrong or right, good or bad, negative or positive, black or white, this also means not to judge what is judged to be positive because one will always create the other to the same extent. To also judge what is positive, means there has to be a negative to compare a positive to, wouldn't it be better if we didn't have a judged negative to begin with?

~ Observe instead of judging. A true observation will only observe a difference without the separation of judgment, for example, one will observe what is and isn't destructive without judging a positive or negative within this observation. Observation means to become aware of your environment where judgment means to stay ignorant to our environment. Observation also means to become aware of all perceptions without bias, however, judgment means to stay ignorant to any other perception but your own.

~ Now we come to love. Love naturally detracts from destructive tendencies, this is because once a consciousness truly loves, it is quite unable to destroy anything. A true sense of love is also of awareness, this is the main reason why this kind of love is unable to be destructive for only in ignorance can a consciousness destroy, a truly aware consciousness is unable to express destructive tendencies, however......

~ It's wise to be also aware that human consciousness is conditioned to abuse and misuse any trait that will seem to benefit it, religion, spirituality, politics, materialism, are good examples of this abuse and misuse, this abuse and misuse in turn will of course create extremes. Human consciousness is but one journey with infinite paths to follow, however to make things interesting, we also have a choice to evolve further from this human consciousness or not.  

~ Become aware that human consciousness is but one journey we are all on no matter what path we are following, however, be also aware that another consciousness that is evolving from human consciousness is developing. This means that some of us will evolve and some of us won't and one consciousness will become more constructive, the other more destructive and some people will be comfortable with what is going on in the world at present, some people won't, there are no wrong or rights with this.

~ Some of us are indeed splitting away from human consciousness, it's likened to human consciousness forking of into a different journey to human consciousness, however, don't get the idea that human consciousness isn't ascending, human consciousness is ascending but it's not evolving into another more aware consciousness. Human consciousness is ascending into a more destructive consciousness, it's wise not to judge this as not being an ascension because it's unbecoming in some way to us. Ascension isn't governed by how a consciousness thinks and expresses itself, an ascending consciousness only has to improve on itself, in anyway.

~ Indeed, the consciousness that is evolving from human consciousness, will once again entail infinite paths while this evolved consciousness is but once again one journey, one consciousness. These paths within this consciousness will be nothing like the paths that are followed in human consciousness's journey, they will be quite different because the journey (consciousness) will be different. One consciousness = journey, individual consciousness's = paths, one journey being taken by many consciousness's on different paths.

~ This new evolved consciousness will be very different to human consciousness, try to let go of this human consciousness, this human consciousness is ascending through technology and corruption but it's still a consciousness that will never be truly aware and passive, it's purely unable to for any length of time.


~ We don't just have a choice of paths to experience, we now have a different journey to choose to experience our paths through, it's indeed a lively time to exist as a 3rd dimensional consciousness.

~ One more thing, try not to judge each other, the journey you have chosen to follow, either it be spiritual or materialistic, is but a journey, one is not wrong or right over the other even though either side might have disdain for the other!! There are of course people who have not judged one journey being more worthy than the other, however, these people have observed that one is more destructive than the other, in the end, you must go with what you feel is the right journey for you to take.

Love-A Sign Of Being Aware


Written by Mathew Naismith

I had absolutely had no intentions of writing today, this is until I walked past a radio with the presenter quoting Thaddeus Golas. I don't resonate with everything Thaddeus expresses but what was being quoted at that time resonated with me. “No matter what your spiritual condition is, no matter where you find yourself in the universe, your choice is always the same: to expand your awareness or contract it.” 
 
Thaddeus Golas, The Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment

Basically, become aware or unaware, or more precisely, we all have a choice  in being unaware (ignorant) or aware (knowing). Being that a consciousness can only express destructive tendencies while in ignorance, wouldn't it be a wise thing to do to become more aware and stop our destructive ways? The trick with this is, one has to be aware to desist in one's own ignorance in the first place, in a sense, to desist in hate so one can love again for only in ignorance can a consciousness hate.    

It's certainly a strange reality we are all experiencing, it's not the wise and aware who are running the world, it's the unwise and unaware who are running the world. These people, think they are aware and intelligent and even wise in what they gain from the exploitation of their environment, this obviously isn't the case for only in ignorance can we exploit our environment to it's utter demise. No true aware and wise consciousness could exploit their environment. The reason for this is simple, they are just incapable of doing so, the perception of creating such a reality just doesn't exist within this kind of consciousness to start with.

Have we, as a collective consciousness, got to the point that we are unable to become aware, to desist in our destructive ways, because of our high level of ignorance? If I was to only take into consideration of the people who are obviously unaware, I would say yes but not everyone is this unaware, remembering, we all make up a collective consciousness. This means the collective consciousness is still able to help itself out of it's ignorant state of consciousness.

Another quote from Thaddeus, “Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.” 
 
Thaddeus Golas

What can I say, awareness = love and unawareness = hate, the more a consciousness becomes aware, the more love a consciousness will automatically feel. This is the same with a consciousness being unaware, the more unaware a consciousness is, the more likely a consciousness is able to automatically hate, or show a lack of empathy, love and respectfulness for their environment. Once a consciousness is unaware, it's automatic for such a consciousness to express destructive traits, of course it's also automatic for an aware consciousness to express a true form of love. A true form of love being apart from lust and desire for only in ignorance can we be expressive of these traits as well.

So does this mean that we need to desist in our desires and lusts? No, as of anything created by ignorance, an unawareness, it has it's place as I will explain about a little further on in this post.

   
“When you learn to love hell you will be in heaven.” 
 
Thaddeus Golas

It's so easy to read this incorrectly, it's as if we need to love hell to create heaven, of course if you love hell this much, you will be in heaven but a hell like heaven. This isn't what this is saying nor is it saying that you must mentally, at the human level of comprehension and understanding, love hell.

I feel it's stating; become aware of hell and be understanding of it's reason and purpose of existing, within this comprehension and understanding, you will love hell for what it is, not for what it isn't. We so often try to find a purpose for hating or showing disdain for anything we deem that isn't a part of ourselves, what so strange with this perception is that everything is of the collective consciousness, meaning, even hell is a part of this consciousness therefore a part of us. The tricky little ego will of course delude us to think otherwise thus the illusion continues, of course illusions can only exist in a consciousness that is unaware.

Oneness: So many perceptions and ideologies point to oneness, one consciousness and one being, the point is, why are there so many different consciousness's doing their own thing? How can there be one consciousness when there is obviously many different conscious forms?

It's a paradox, there is oneness, as in one source of creation in my mind, but for this one consciousness to be truly aware, it needs to express what it is. Some people say this one consciousness needs to be aware of itself through it's expressions, human beings collective consciousness being but one of these infinite expressions of this one consciousness. I don't think this one consciousness needs to be aware of itself, I once thought the same thing, this one consciousness is only being expressive of it's awareness of all of what is, it's basically expanding on it's awareness through it's expressions.

For an aware consciousness, it is normal for this kind of consciousness to expand on it's consciousness, actually, an aware consciousness will expand on it's conscious  quite automatically. On the other hand, an unaware consciousness will contract (constrict) it's consciousness, at times to the point of it's own extinction/destruction.

Yes, there is one consciousness but at the same time separate infinite expressions of this consciousness. These infinite expressions of consciousness denote a consciousness so aware that it is incomprehensible to any other consciousness but itself, remembering, we too are this one consciousness. The more aware we are of this oneness being who we are, the more we will automatically love and desist in our destructive ways.


Everything has it's place including ignorance, "For to be ignorant to ignorance denotes only ignorance void of awareness of ignorance!!"........Mathew G

Shedding Our Cocoon by Becoming Wise and Aware



Written by Mathew Naismith

Boy, I know how to put the cat amongst the pigeons. This post was incited by a vision I had last night, it wasn’t the most pleasant visions to have but boy it was very aware building. It was about something some people would deem as negative but you couldn’t really have a more positive vison if you wanted too. This post is about removing ourselves from our cocoons, this allows us to become wise and aware of our whole self by shedding our fear of facing our demons on the collective level.  

Most of us know how to face our own personal individual demons which are mainly based on the controlling factors of the ego; this vison however is about facing our collective demons on a collective scale.  To do this you can’t sit yourself in a deemed negative or positive cocoon, in other words being fearful of facing what we deem as the negatives and/or positives in our lives, sure it feels secure in our little cocoons but it’s not really. These cocoons we have built around ourselves only keep us ignorant to what the collective is going through. I should point out, a truly positive person will not see a negative in anything what so ever, it’s very much in line with unconditional love, it has no conditions or judgement.

Now to the vision itself which is all about the collective. If you had or are having enough trouble dealing with your own demons, I wouldn’t try dealing with the collective demons, they are far more compelling because these demons are on a massive collective scale. This means their affect upon us can be on a massive collective scale unless you are aware enough of what these people actually represent; I will go into this a little later on.  

The vision was of a demon devouring the flesh of others, the demon was represented of man devouring the flesh of others and even himself. This on the collective scale is represented of how man prays and lives upon other people’s misery and misfortune to feed his own ego driven appetite. I then got a vision of a sabre, sabres only have one purpose and that is to harm and kill others. Have you ever handled a sabre? Psychologically most people feel more powerful when handling a sabre; it represents power and control over other people’s lives, guns can also have the same effect that is why so many people love these weapons. The sabre in this case represents authority which is driven by power and control over others.

The point of visioning the sabre, straight after my vision of the demon, wasn’t to show me how powerful and controlling these people are but how these people have a need to feel powerful and controlling, the vision was showing me that these people with power over us have to have a safety blanket, so to speak, to make themselves feel all powerful. This safety blanket is the controlling factors of the ego, they need the ego to work in this way to feel secure and powerful even if that means devouring the flesh of others as depicted with the demon. These people to me were depicted as cannibals; these are the people who prey on other people from the smallest of criminal’s way up to the multinational level of criminal activity. In this case criminals are depicted as cannibals, people who prey off of other people to feed their own controlling ego.

When visioning this vision I was not one bit fearful nor did I deem these people as negative or positive, I was actually sympathetic to their own ignorance. The only way people can hurt and even kill others is when they are in ignorance; you have to be in ignorance to do such things.

This ignorance is represented by the type of cocoon we build around us either it be of a negative value or a positive value. The reason for such cocoons is to keep us safe while we grow into a butterfly but what is a cocoon keeping us ignorant too?  It’s keeping us ignorant to anything that is not of what our cocoon was built out of, either that be a negative value or a positive value. How many deemed positive people can fearlessly face the collective demons and how many deemed negative people can face being aware of their own ignorance? A true positive person can face up to anything because when they come across something more destructive and harmful, they don’t judge it as being bad or good, negative or positive for the main  reason they can’t possibly see a negative in anything.

Being positive is really about facing the collective demons not fearing of becoming aware of them. These people who feed off of others love people building a positive cocoon around themselves, the main reason for this is this keeps these people ignorant to what is really going on in the collective plus it makes it even easier to feed off of such positive people.  

These people who prey and feed off of other people are living in utter fear of anyone who isn’t living in a cocoon; once you come out of such cocoons you become much more aware, wise and fearless of these cannibals. This is why I didn’t feel fearful when visioning such visions, I actually laughed, how could these people still be so much in ignorance to the level of devouring each other’s flesh, as depicted in the vision. The only reason we are still devouring each other’s flesh is because of ignorance, because we keep building these cocoons out of fear, a fear of being aware of the deemed negatives and positives of the collective.  Once you become aware, there is truly nothing to be fearful of.  

Soon after my visions the thought of China came to mind, this wasn’t by coincidence mainly because I was still in a visionary state of consciousness, how could a country that was of the concepts of solidarity, equality and oneness turn to utter cannibalism, the devouring of other people’s flesh and their own? Communism didn’t work and won’t work unless it follows these principles of true solidarity, equality and oneness and most importantly, desist in using the sabre.

People like me who are not fearful of any part of the collective are becoming more prevalent, we no longer see a bad or good, negative or positive to be fearful of, we see everything of being different levels of awareness and wisdom that is all.  We see people who are wholly in their deemed positive cocoons being fed off of while the negative people thrive on their devoured flesh. The only reason anyone would build such cocoons is of fear and it’s this fear we need to deal with. The only way to deal with this fear is through awareness of all of what the collective is, not what we want it to be.

Break open that cocoon because you truly have nothing to fear but the fear of becoming too aware and wise, now that would be a shame wouldn’t it? Yer right. I’m an Australian country boy; it’s wise to make allowances for me, yer right!!

The Question of Truth


Written by Mathew Naismith

I was in a discussion with someone recently in relation to various subjects; they were talking about absolute truth, the truth above all other truths, they had themselves convinced they knew and conversed absolute truth. Of course being this absolute within ones convictions, it’s impossible to point out any other truths not in agreement with theirs.  The question is, can we know the absolute truth while existing in time?

Time represents fragmented consciousness which in turn represents fragmented truths, how can anyone possibly acquire absolute truth with in a fragmented consciousness of fragmented truths?  This might not totally seem impossible, if someone made themselves aware enough, they would eventually know the absolute truth. This to me is an impossibility for the main reason, once we become that aware, our vibrations would change that much we could no longer exit in such a reality of time. We would in turn un-fragment consciousness which would send us into a state of un-fragmented consciousness, a state of timelessness.  However we can, at times, actually enter into this state through meditation or through other spiritual practices.

Are we making the mistake of searching for the truth as opposed to just becoming aware?  Truth to us would seem to give us awareness but does it?  How can searching for the truth within a fragmented consciousness of time give us absolute truth?  

Being aware firstly makes us aware of existing in a fragmented consciousness, searching for the truth doesn’t give us this awareness for the main reason truth is fragmented within a fragmented consciousness.  Searching for truth within a fragmented consciousness isn’t going to give us absolute truth but fragmented truths.

Awareness also makes us aware that there is a conscious state that isn’t fragmented but whole.  This allows us to use this whole non-fragmented consciousness to make us even more aware.  This occurs because we have entered into a state of non-fragmented truths; it’s a truth that is whole and not fragmented.

Time quite automatically gives us a fragmented consciousness, everything within time is born and dies at different times, everything is separate and fragmented from all other conscious energy flows and sources.  This doesn’t occur in timelessness, consciousness is whole and nothing truly is born or dies within this whole consciousness because no part of consciousness is separated, it’s whole (one).

In my mind should we be searching for the truth as opposed to just becoming more aware? No, awareness gives us truth; truth only gives us half-truths, in a sense, lies.  It’s amazing how we can convince ourselves of these fragmented truths as being absolute truths in a fragmented consciousness. If we were aware in the first place of existing in a fragments consciousness of fragmented truths, we wouldn’t make this mistake in the first place.

Is it possible for anyone to totally speak of absolute truth while connected to a state of non-fragmented consciousness?  You would think why not, if anyone is connected to this non-fragmented consciousness why couldn’t they totally speak of absolute truth?  It makes sense; they are no longer connected to a consciousness that is fragmented but to a non-fragmented consciousness, the consciousness of the creative source.  

In the case of anyone being this connected to the creative sources consciousness, if they are still existing in time, they are still only partially speaking of absolute truth, this certainly includes people like me and even yogis and gurus.  The reason for this again is, they couldn’t possibly still exist in time, a fragmented consciousness, for the main reason they are un-fragmenting consciousness within a fragmented conscious state of existence.  One quite automatically cancels out the other, look at how time has cancelled out non-fragmented consciousness within time, this also occurs when in a state of timelessness.

So we exist in a fragmented consciousness, so no matter how much we search for the absolute truth we are not going to find it, is this what I’m stating here? Yes however, by becoming aware, like a lot of spiritually aware people are doing, we are becoming reconnected to this non-fragmented consciousness which assists us to balance out our existence. This is done by no longer living by half-truths of a fragmented consciousness but partials truths of a non-fragmented consciousness.  


Time is of ignorance because it’s of a fragmented consciousness, only in ignorance can we destroy but in timelessness or the timelessness of God’s consciousness we can’t destroy because we are no longer ignorant and the less ignorant we become the less destructive we will be.  Teaching ourselves to become more constructive has everything to do with becoming more aware and the less in searching we become of the absolute truth within time.
