The Conditioned Mind creates a lie that when there’s space it needs filling. The heart understands this space as emptiness and until it’s realized it doesn’t need filling, the lie will remain in place.

For many years I had this misunderstood emptiness (space) in me that was created from the lie that I lacked love and that’s why I constantly reached for stuff to fill it; this is no longer the case because this is now understood. This emptiness isn’t emptiness at all, its simply space which is the essence of life. It’s where life happens when one is busy making other plans. By not understanding this I spent most of my life trying to fill an empty space with whatever I could get my hands on. This filling is endless as to what can be used so each individual has to investigate for themselves what that is. It’s ironic because now most of my life is life is spent in the space that for so long I considered an unwelcomed emptiness. Understanding this and not needing to fill the space is the truth that has been revealed to me.

To fill this unwelcomed emptiness is the reason why anyone reaches for anything and it’s because they want the space to be different, hence the filling. If this space was understood for what it truly is, humanity would be much different because contentment would be the way of the world. The needing to fill this space is a lie the Conditioned Mind invents and it keeps one constantly needing the present moment different. This keeps one reaching as the needing to fill the emptiness remains in place. This will need to be understood if the reaching is to ever end. When it is, the space transforms to a welcomed emptiness because the present moment doesn’t have to be different, and when the present moment doesn’t have to be different, life reveals its true essence of space, which doesn’t need to be filled with anything because it’s not empty.

When one isn’t controlled by things from the outside, therein lies your peace, but there isn’t peace because life is the way that it’s wanted, there’s peace because your dynamic energy is focused on life as it is.

Dynamic energy controls your life and makes it what it is, but it doesn’t make it what it is because of what you do, it makes it what it is by where your energy is focused. If your focus doesn’t put you in harmony with life, then there won’t be any and hence your life will be the way that it is because it’s the way you are unconsciously making it. It’s actually a beautiful thing when one becomes aware of this because it puts your responses to life in your hands; to me that’s all a person could ask for. When one isn’t controlled by things from the outside, therein lies your peace, but there isn’t peace because life is the way that it’s wanted, there’s peace because your dynamic energy is focused on life as it is.

What happens with a mind that has dynamic energy that’s not based in love is it gets kidnapped by its own conditioning and then you are held hostage by your own mind. I know this sounds crazy, but this is exactly what’s happens with a mind that becomes conditioned, and it’s all because of the dynamic energy based to self serve. When the dynamic energy in place focuses on a me, me, me mind, crazy becomes the norm or so it seems, but it’s only because of the dynamic energy making it so. When the dynamic energy changes, the craziness subsides. So when you sit and see what the base of your energy is, you just may be able to change it by refocusing. It will take some time though because of the conditioning in place, but the alternative is to remain the way you are; being controlled by dynamic energy that holds you hostage to it.

Not only is to err human, it’s also inevitable. It’s the clinging to our humanness that causes attaching to wanting things different which in turn causes one to cling to their own suffering…

If you really want to know what humanities basic error is that keeps most clinging to their own suffering, it’s attaching to being human. It’s not that we aren’t human or that we’ll be able to transcend our humanness, it’s more so to find a way to embrace it, but not to cling to it; clinging to humanness in some way always causes suffering. It doesn’t have to be attached to, but it will take developing discipline for the mind to see this. It’s seems to be human to want things different and it’s always attaching to the story of being human that causes suffering. This is true regardless of what’s wanted different.

It’s always the human self that wants something different and it’s this charade of clinging to being human that pulls one into suffering. Last week I ordered a shirt on line and when it was delivered I tried it on and it didn’t fit. By my initial reaction you would have thought I was going to have to go shirtless; this was simply because I didn’t accept the fact the shirt didn’t fit. This is what clinging to being human does and when I saw how childish this wanting things different was it fell away and I was able to get an exchange for the shirt. You can substitute the shirt with anything and you’ll get the same childish results of suffering. This is all because not only is it human to err, but it’s also the clinging to our humanness that one attaches to wanting things different which in turn causes one to cling to their own suffering…

Nothing that arises inherently has a label, that comes from how the individual perceives the arisen moment and attaches a conditioned label of this or that to what arises...

Being in the space of what arises and not attaching a conditioned label to it determines if one truly lives life or if it’s lived in the conditioned realm of a created story of how you think the arisen moment should be. Nothing is inherently good or bad, but when it’s labeled as so it changes the entire dynamics of how the present moment is dealt with. And regardless if it’s labeled good or bad, it creates the same dynamic change of suffering because the labeling makes the moment need to be a certain way. Bad: push it away...Good: pull it in...either way the same discontent is created. Although there may not be awareness of this, the discontent is there nonetheless.

Recently I was on vacation in Florida and it was funny just watching the mind constantly trying to create labels to make the arisen moment into a story. When the sun was out the label was good, when it went in or if a thunder shower passed through, bad. There’s a small gym in the hotel that I went to: nobody in there, good, four people in there, bad. First day on vacation, good, last day, bad. These are but a few, the main thing is to just notice this and not attach, but don’t make not attaching into a story of good or bad. When you can really start to recognize this, the labeling process that gets so engrained in the subconscious because of the Conditioned Mind can start to be let go of; this letting go is as simple as just watching what arises and not attaching a label of good or bad....

Needing to do something doesn't enhance life because the doing keeps the mind agitated. It may give the appearance of enhancement, but there's no real benefit to one's energy while trying to do.

The energy of always doing doesn't allow one to be present for what's actually happening and it keeps the mind in a constant state of agitation. When I write about this type of energy it's often misunderstood that I'm saying don't do anything, but that's not what I'm saying. Do whatever it is you think you need to do, just understand the intention and energy behind it so your doing isn't a hinderance to truly experiencing life fully. I watch this very carefully because attaching to this doing energy keeps one a prisoner to it. A created purpose doesn't enhance life and although it may seem that it does or that people are being helped, which they very well may be, there's no true benefit to the one who's energy is of a created purpose; this is my direct experience.

I know some people are helped by the sharing of my experiences, but it's not my purpose. What I do is more of a by product of where I have been led. It doesn't mean I can't put things out there that may help people, I just don't have to make it into a burden by it being my purpose. Not needing to do anything other than what arises allows for the freedom of not creating a story of doing. To me the most important thing in my life is to be in the moment that's happening and not add anything to it. If it's to share, I share. If it's to sit in the body than that's what's done. In this place of not needing to do I've experienced true freedom because it's the only place where a purpose isn't needed nor is the need to do.

There is never a void that isn't created so there is never a true need to rely on anything from the outside of yourself. Until this is understood, one will keep creating a void.

Every time someone goes to a program designed for a specific reason, goes to see a therapist, reaches for another self help book, or any other type of outside help, its because of applying a label of having a certain issue which is seen as a problem. When this label is applied, all one is doing is reinforcing the attachment to that label and hence they're keeping themselves in the void of whatever label that’s applied, but it exist only because they themselves have created it. Read this very carefully because why this label is being applied will be the difference in breaking free from creating a void or remaining entrapped to it. It's not that some of the things mentioned don't have value at certain times in one's life, but if they're being held onto as an end to a means, they lose their value as they morph into a void.

Not many will see exactly what I'm talking about here, but I'm writing it because it's what I experienced after many many years of trying to fix an internal void with things from the outside. This void was self created and I have found the very things I was using to fill this void are the very things that were keeping the void in place; this is regardless of what was being used. Why I created this void is what I needed to find out because it didn't truly exist and since it didn't truly exist, why was it there? To me if there’s a constant need to reach outside oneself because of a void, something isn't right. If I can't just be with myself without the reliance on something outside of me, I have to ask myself why this is so. There is never a void that isn't created so there is never a true need to rely on anything from the outside and until this is seen, one will keep creating a void.

At the core of the Conditioned Mind is “I” and when “I” is let go of, all the tools that the Conditioned Mind uses fall away along with the substitutions of one thing for another.

Why it’s so important not to put the Conditioned Mind cart before the horse per se is because this doesn’t allow the core conditioning to be seen and substitution becomes the conditioned behavior. The Conditioned Mind has to be understood if this constant barrage of reaching and substituting is to end or at least subside. If the focus is on alleviating one of the tools the Conditioned Mind uses to keep you entrapped to it, you may stop using that tool, but another will simply be put in its place.

The subtleties of the Conditioned Mind are second to none when it comes to keeping the circular bondage energy in place. Many tools are used to keep this energy in place, but they all stem from the core conditioning of “I”. Substituting one thing for another is done when there’s no awareness of this as the Conditioned Mind will simply use one tool instead of another. An example of this would be how it uses atheism (a belief in the non existence of God) the same way it uses faith (a belief in God). As long as a story is being created that keeps the bondage in place, that’s all that matters to it.

Many people think if you can break free of one tool of the Conditioned Mind it means freedom, but my experience has been only breaking free of the core conditioning of “I” provides freedom. The base of all the bondage (tools) of the Conditioned Mind is based in “I” so regardless of what you think you are letting go of, the only thing to truly let go of is “I”. Yesterday someone responded to one of my post that language is at the core of the Conditioned Mind, and I get that’s what is seen, but its not at the core, it’s only a tool. At the core is “I” and when “I” is let go of, all the tools that the Conditioned Mind uses fall away along with the substituting one thing for another.

The Conditioned Mind is devious and causes much suffering. The more it’s allowed to penetrate the inner psyche the more it will make you think the way you are is your fault, but “It’s not your fault”

All the conditioning in place that makes you do what you do “It’s not your fault”. Every time you use one of the defense mechanisms you have developed over the years that offer you a way to protect yourself “It’s not your fault”. You may think in ways that aren’t truly beneficial to you “It’s not your fault”. You may get angry without understanding why and put yourself down for it, but understand “It’s not your fault”.

The Conditioned Mind is a devious foe, one that causes much suffering. The more it’s allowed to penetrate the inner psyche the more it will make you think the way you are is your fault, but “It’s not your fault” how can it be, you don’t make you thoughts happen. You didn’t choose your name, parents, the school you go to, religion, aunts, uncles, teachers, your upbringing, or any of the other attachments that make you think the way that you do. Your life regardless of the manifested behavior and how it is, is not the fault of anyone and definitely “It’s not your fault”.

I know some will say this makes no one responsible for their actions, and to a large degree this is correct, but how can someone be responsible for something they had nothing to do with “It’s not your fault”. The “It’s not your fault” tool is not something that’s reinforced by society because finger pointing is one of societies main tools, it’s always looking to lay blame; this isn’t societies fault, it’s just the conditioning in place. Until one can see the conditioning for what it is, the belief that you have control over what you do and it’s your fault that you are the way you are will remain firmly in place, but please be easy on yourself and put away the hammer because I’m telling you “It’s not your fault”.

Without awareness of the mind becoming agitated in the absence of something to do, the Conditioned Mind will create story after story just so it has something to do.

The most difficult thing I have ever done in my life is to learn how to do nothing in spite of the conditioning in place telling me to do. To not give in to the mind agitations that tell me to do this, do that, reach for this or reach for that, is so difficult because of the lack of discipline to just be and also the lack of understanding of why not to do is so difficult. Even with discipline and this understanding, it’s difficult because of all the outer influences and inner conditioning. To not do is not something many master, I’m not talking about sitting in meditation or taking a nap, I mean being wide awake without having to do something. For forty nine years this wasn’t noticeable to me because I was never still long enough to be aware of any agitation. I like so many was a doer; a slave to my Conditioned Mind.

For some this doing doesn’t seem like much of an issue because the doings aren’t noticeably destructive, but make no mistake a doing is a doing and one is a slave to doing regardless how productive or subtle it may seem. Without awareness of the mind becoming agitated in the absence of something to do, the Conditioned Mind creates story after story just so it has something to do. The stories base will be whatever conditioning you have in place. You can only do what the conditioning in place dictates and without this agitation being noticed, the conditioning is usually based in doing something for selfish reasons. Even if one wants to save the world, who says the world needs saving. Not doing allows for one to truly be an instrument, not by doing by simply being, but this will only occur if you notice you don’t have to do.

TEARS OF THE VALKYRIE

 

Mighty are dragons, flames they do breathe

Long are their talons, with teeth they do cleave

Wings like a storm, the wind they do blow

No fiercer an enemy do angels or men know

Healed in clear waters deep in the well

There Odin’s eye and golden sword fell

Greatest of Battles, with sword he doth fight

Thor without Mjolnir no longer hath flight

Deep in the dragon the flames they do seethe

Heimdall fought bravely, but no dragon is he

The eye now is blinded, strong arm is left lame

Now come the Valkyrie to mourn for the slain
