My Weekend: The Untethered Mind and Self Self Knowledge

Image
This weekend was quite enjoyable. I started Saturday morning off by going to the post office to pick up a package:



This item fits really well, but is a little short for my liking. . .so I can safely assume they sent me the wrong dress. 
From there I packed Dzhokhar for his weekend visit with his God Mother. He got to see kids play basketball and meet a newborn so I'm sure he had a good time. 
I had tea with Chris before we headed to lunch in Midtown Detroit.

It is really exciting when you can record a song in less than 20 minutes. I wrote and recorded vocals for "Totem", by Ancient Language, the newest project I am apart of. 
Soon there after we were off to Ottawa, Ohio 

I can honestly say that this bar is a great out of state venue. There was a lively crowd, but everyone seemed to know one another very well. The bartenders were kind and even gave us free pitchers of Pabst Blue Ribbon for the evening. The dance floored was filled once the bands started performing. I have…

Self-Knowledge Is A Process

So, to understand the innumerable problems that each one of us has, is it not essential that there be self-knowledge? And that is one of the most difficult things, self-awareness -- which does not mean an isolation, a withdrawal.

Self-knowledge is obviously a process, not an end in itself; and to know oneself, one must be aware of oneself in action, which is relationship. In relationship with society, your wife, husband and so on you discover yourself ; but to discover how you react, what your responses are, requires an extraordinary alertness of mind, a keenness of perception.

Notice: 
This weekend I will be giving away a few items, if you are interested please email me at: nyooni@disciples.com

Those Items will be listed this evening, tomorrow afternoon and Sunday morning. 

Enjoy your weekend Light Beings!!!

Can I Rely on My Experience?

Most of us are satisfied with authority because it gives us a continuity, a certainty, a sense of being protected. But a man who would understand the implications of this deep psychological revolution must be free of authority, must he not? 
He cannot look to any authority, whether of his own creation or imposed upon him by another. There can only be one state in which reality, newness, can come into being, which brings about a revolution. That state is when mind is completely empty of the past, when there is no analyzer, no experience, no judgment, no authority of any kind.

There is an answer to your question, please submit it here _____________________!

01/13/2015 Wisdom is not something that has to be discovered by each one, and it is not the result of knowledge. Knowledge and wisdom do not go together. Wisdom comes when there is the maturity of self-knowing. Without knowing oneself, order is not possible, and therefore there is no virtue. Learning is always the active present; it has no past. When you say that you have "learned", you are burdening yourself with previous knowledge, with your previous experience, or with a mind that is  conditioned, for then you are merely interpreting, translating, looking with an eye that is already clouded by the past.
01/14/2015 We generally learn through study, through books, through being instructed. Those are the usual ways of learning. We commit to memory what to do and what not to do, what to think and what not to think, how to feel, how to react. Through experience, through study and analysis we store up knowledge as memory; and memory then responds to further challenges and deman…

Boost Your Motivation (4)

#1 Get Rid of Negativity and Negative Thoughts
The most dangerous thing that you could ever come up with would be negativity. It's too damaging, stressful, and a complete waste of time. 

You should never be negative because it will only steer you away from your goal. 
Surround yourself with positive people and positive materials. 

#2 Take Care of Yourself
Most of us have busy life and sometimes we forget to look after the most important thing in our life: ourselves!

You need to take some time out everyday to maintain and improve your health and body. After all, the body is the only place you have to live.

The mind and body work together. Your body needs to be a good support system for the mind and spirit. Having a body full of energy and vitality will definitely give you more motivation to pursue your goals.

#3 Be Happy and Grateful
The most important thing of all is not the money or career but rather the happiness and fulfillment that we have. When we set a goal, we don't really go af…

Learning Is Not Experience 01/10/15  There are two kinds of learning. For most of us learning means the accumulation of knowledge, of experience, of technology, of a skill, of a language. There is also a psychological learning, learning through experience, either the immediate experiences of life, which leave a certain residue, of tradition, of the race, of society. There are these two kinds of learning how to meet life: psychological and physiological; outward skill and inward skill. Doesn't learning imply something new, something that I don't know and am learning? If I am merely adding to what I already know, it is no longer learning.

Listening Brings Freedom 
01/05/2015


Listening itself is a complete act; the very act of listening brings its own freedom. 
But are you really concerned with listening, or with altering the turmoil within? If you would listen. . in the sense of being aware of your conflicts and contradictions without forcing them into any particular pattern of thought, perhaps they might altogether cease. You see, we are constantly trying to be this or that, to achieve a particular state, to capture one kind of experience and avoid another, so the mind is everlastingly occupied with something; it is never still to listen to the noise of its own struggles and pain. Be simple and don't try to become something or to capture some experience.


Listening Without Effort

If there is truth in what you hear, you will find a remarkable change taking place in you- a change that is not premeditated or wished for, a transformation, a complete revolution in which the truth alone is master and not the creatio…

Listening Without Thought

1.4.15 

It is only when you listen without the idea, without thought, that you are directly in contact; and being in contact, you will understand whether what is said is true or false; you do not have to discuss.
I polished my nails this evening. . .


Beyond the Noise of Words

1.3.15

To listen, there must be an inward quietness, a freedom from the strain of acquiring, a relaxed attention. Words confuse; they are only the outward means of communication; but no commune beyond the noise of words, there must be in listening an alert passivity. 

Those who love may listen; but it is extremely rare to find a listener. Most of us are after results, achieving goals; we are forever overcoming and conquering, and so there is no listening. It is only in listening that one hears the song of the words.

Friendships end as easy as they begin.

Good Afternoon, "The Book of Life" is going to provide me with wonderful wisdom to share with you all. In January my focus is on : Listening, Learning, Authority and Self-Knowledge. I will be posting daily, so feel free to share, comment &/or like! 01.01.15
Listen with ease. If you can listen in this way, without strain, you will find an extraordinary change taking place within you, a change that comes without your volition, without your asking; and in that change there is great beauty and depth of insight.
