Be in the world, but not of the world—unconditioned and relative to nothing

(Before It's News)

Do not give any sensation the power of your implicit belief.

Do not be self-involved with any of the images that dance on the screen of your awareness. Be free of them entirely!

Simply observe, neutrally—peacefully detached from all happenings of the world, including all mental goings-on of mind.

When you become psychologically attached to any of the things you perceive, it is your belief in them that becomes the fertile soil in which the ego grows, which then sprouts into weeds of falsely conceived personal confusion, delusion, and emotional suffering.

All belief is invasive. It infects the absolute truth with false appearances, tainting our perception of reality itself. In other words, belief allows that which is conceptual to overtake the real. It allows that which is merely an illusion of mind to overwhelm the peaceful and empty space it appears within.

Look inwards. Reflect on your own experience of being. Know yourself as the only truth there is.

What does your self-existence depend upon? I don’t mean your body-mind mechanism, but your presence of beingness; does it depend upon the outside world? Do you require the environment around you, to know that you exist? Does your sense of I Am require anything to know itself, as itself? Or is your very presence, here and now, self-realized within its own innate awareness?

Realize that which appears to exist is always limited, because that which appears will eventually disappear. That which is born will always die. Therefore all existence is unreal; it simply isn’t true. It is an illusion that exists only within the conceptual distortion of a mind that conceives the presence of space and time.
