This blog is only about awakening, nothing more, nothing less. Anything that will contribute to the possibility of complete liberation from the dream, or from the mass hallucination of humanity, or from the mental matrix, or from the false self, or from the lie, or any other label you want to call it, is welcome here. The key words are FREEDOM and JOY. Sometimes I think this just keeps the story going and only adds to the insanity, and there's too much of that already. But something is trying to pry the lid off still, something awaits to be seen. We are all in this boat together, so here we go......have fun!

The Fear of "Losing It" or "Going Crazy", Living Without Mind

Many now involved with the waking up process say that when they hear terms like living in…No- Mind…Emptiness…The Great Space...Vanishing…Void Nature…The Death of the Ego, or Seeing before mind, are somewhat fearful of such an adventure beyond the mind. They are fearful of losing it, of vanishing all together, or even of going crazy, if they go too deep down the rabbit hole from their minds known reference points.

This fear of vanishing or losing the mind which “does” arise with deep inquiry needs to be looked at. It is the old sensation referring to the old concept of... I am the Body…I am the mind… I am Name and Form…I am my past…and so on. This Fear is not a fear of the “New” or of the “Now”, but of leaving the old; this fear comes when mind comes. When mind goes the “You” itself goes, and with this “You” goes any fear of losing it.

Consider that only when you possess something does the fear of losing it come into play. What is first needed is to discover what is “real” and what is “not real”. What is “not real” is what comes and goes, like name and form, the body, and yes the mind also.

This mind is the root of our suffering and once we really see this, really get it, then the possibility of it going makes some sense. What is “real” is what does not come and go, this can not ever be lost, is not perishable, does not die, only “this” cannot be lost, only “this” is who and what you really are, only “this” has no name or form, and only “this” brings peace.

The fear that you will be going crazy without a mind is only real in duality, and where there is duality there is fear, anger, desire, hate, stress, wars: In short…Real Craziness.

So above all don’t wobble and don’t be afraid of losing your mind, because no-mind is the real sanity and who we really are, our natural state. In this basic sanity there is no-mind, no anger, no judgments, no duality. In this sanity of no-mind we find wisdom and peace.

So don’t be afraid of losing the mind, and “Yes” you will lose this mind, it will go and the sooner the better as it is “not real” and what is not real has to go. So relax, keep quiet and keep aware of what is “real” and what is “not real” and know that many before you have gone through this. Many are living in true peace and bliss without a mind.

To have the courage to go beyond the mind one needs to let go. This letting go is not letting go of just what your mind thinks needs to be let go of, based on some spiritual or religious teachings or on any idea of good and evil, but letting go of all and everything. Once this mind is gone, even gone for just a moment, a second, then a new view will appear, “that” has always been here, “that” will always be here, and you are “that”.

You have giving your whole life to others, to objects, to all the solutions given to you by others, and yet true peace is not happening. So now take just this moment, this very second for just yourself, stop all and everything, keep quiet with no effort, and see what it is like to be free of this thing called mind, and see where real peace resides.
