If you are not a fan of Sadhguru, reading the rest of this post might not be for you. As I said to a person who is the owner of a group called Spiritual Peaceful Society On Earth on MeWe, "In certain circumstances I can drift into another consciousness. This is like when I use to be able to feel what a perpetrator and the victim of a perpetrator were feeling and thinking while a crime was being committed. In this case, this was beautiful.'
In this case while watching a video by Sadhguru on the topic of awarding childless women, I became one with a consciousness of a sense of true oneness. I am not talking about talking about oneness, while at the same time not being one with all not of my own. I am talking about a true sense of oneness, where one person's child is of your own and visa-versa. You can go on from this which the consciousness I experienced did just that.
Where one person's child is of your own denotes; that all of what is, is of you as you are of it in the absence of division, but in the presence of union. Instead of, you are black, I am white, or, you are negative, I am positive, you have, you are me as I am of you. The perception of God or of a creative consciousness gives many people the awareness that we are of one source, no matter what our material (physical) differences and material creators might be. The immaterial, no matter what we call it, is what units us as what is material divides us.
I once had an interaction with an Australian aboriginal who had very little to do with white people. He lived in a part of the country where very few white people lived. These people had very little respect or time for white people. After a while, this bloke (man) stated to me that he couldn't believe I was white for two reasons. I treated this bloke like any other bloke, not like what most white people do; treat black people as inferior to whites. Also, being spiritually minded in the way I was, was likened to the spirituality of the Australian aboriginal, all is of you as you are of it. White people lost their spirituality long ago as they lost their connection to Earth and the universe as a whole.
I need not say more in this circumstance.

We have a solicitor in the family that told me to stay with what I am doing. I was considering changing tact and become more tactful. Tactful meaning: Having or showing a sense of what is fitting and considerate in dealing with other people.
Expressing a sense of honest truth, which is often the opposite of desired truths, is going to be offensive to other people who are expressive of desired truths, there is no way around this. The only way around this is to stop expressing open honest truth which I nearly did on a few occasions. Often being black is offensive to white people. How do you stop being who you truly are? Also, just because you are black and this offends whites, it is not you who is being offensive, it is them. Just because other people are offended by honest truth, doesn't mean you, the black, are being offensive and tactless.
This reminds me of the times I spent on youme, especially the group called Our Humanity on youme, that allowed name calling, endorsed people not to stay on topic, therefore show deliberate disrespect, endorsed, not only robust discussions /debates but argumentative exchanges, etc. Not everyone is treated like this on youme or our humanity, only those who are of honest truth instead of desired truths it would seem. Atheists of course desire that we are all born atheistic which I disproved. I am not against atheism, but I am not supportive of radical deliberate ignorance based on desired truths. I was treated as though I was black on youme, a man of honest truth as much as I can be.
Yes, our humanity also includes desired truths. In all honesty, desired truths seem to be the main stay of our reality at present, a more preferable truth in direct opposition to honest truth it would seem. So should have I accepted such a rebuttal, not just from the moderators of our humanity but youme as a whole?
Our humanity means our humanity as a whole, not just parts of humanity that are more desirable. I was often accused by the people of desired truths that I didn't like my views being questioned; this is while I was the only one presenting evidence to my claims. Of course the more evidence I supplied, the more prevalent the unsupported accusations become, quite excessively at times. They actually had no other recourse, in their mind.
If you are expressive of honest truth in a reality primarily based on desired truths, being expressive of honest truth is going to lead to disagreements. Sadly, often these disagreements lead to a person of desired truths to turn on you, at times quite viciously. I would have to honestly say that the people who I have had a disagreement with and turned on me, are most often primarily expressive of desired truths. Why are they so offended, especially when I supplied evidence to my honest truths?
In my mind, no matter what, never stop freely expressing honest truth in our humanity, even when by doing so we have to sacrifice our own harmony for a short time.

This particular post could assist a lot of people who meditate or wish to meditate or anyone who just simply wants their mind to let go. You will learn to let go of control, including your own control over your mind, before meditating. The way mindfulness meditation is often taught in the west is to take control of the mind first and foremost. In the east, one firstly let's go of control to meditate as meditation is about releasing the mind of control, not controlling the mind to meditate mindfully.
For me, learning to let go of control is far more beneficial than meditation, especially mindful meditation where you have to take control of your mind. So many people can't meditate and/or don't feel comfortable with meditating, so just letting go, especially of control, might be their thing. However, if you are a control freak, as the author of the bellow article admits to, letting go of control, which also means letting go of being controlling as well of your own mind, might be just as daunting as meditation. I loved this author's self-honesty by the way, very rare these days.
Extract: "I’ve noticed that things go much more smoothly when I give up control—when I allow them to happen instead of making them happen. Unfortunately, I’m terrible at this."
"Surrender literally means to stop fighting. Stop fighting with yourself. Stop fighting the universe and the natural flow of things. Stop resisting and pushing against reality."
If you read the article above, you should have a better idea what letting go of control is all about, making for a more fruitful (beneficial) meditation and life period.
Letting go of being controlling can be as daunting as letting go of being controlled, in actuality, they are the same thing. We might think that by taking control, we are being controlled less. It matters not what is taking control, you or another force, it is still control that is in control. Usually, the only reason to take control is because we were being controlled. A fear of being controlled has fearfully made us take control. Fear has created a circumstance where we feel we need to take control instead of being controlled. This depicts that fear, an ego in control, is in control, nothing else.
Also, try not to think of it as them or me taking control, in other words try not to separate one energy from another taking control. It matters not what energy source that is controlling you, it is still control. We often separate them from ourselves, thus creating an environment of control of one over the other. "It is me, a positive, taking control, not them, a negative, taking control." I am also into oneness which gives me more of a one energy perception rather than numerous energies. Once you separate consciousness or energy period like this, one part of consciousness or energy will want to be more controlling. This is why I try to stay away from the perceptions of negatives and positives which is the dividing of energy, not a union of energy. One always desires to control and dominate the other.
I actually have no need to meditate these days. I can at any moment get into a state where my mind isn't being controlled or controlling, a state where 99.9% of the time a just simply smile. Yes, I allow my mind to wonder but this wondering isn't to do with what is or isn't human, it is to do with everything as a whole. A pure state of awareness is known in Buddhism as nothingness, only because when all consciousness is observed as being in union and not separated, there is only energy, not energies. Once energy is observed like this, there is no motion to observe thus the ego has a perception of nothingness.
In the west, the separation of negatives and positives, the disunion of energy, has become predominantly popular, like taking control of our mind and life has. So many people are meditating on this bases, and any bases that makes the ego in control feel good. If any kind of control makes you feel good, what part of you do you think is making you feel good and in control? If we are honest with ourselves, we would see that it is the ego in control. What many seem to be doing is conditioning the ego to control, not conditioning or freeing the ego of and from control.
If you think control makes you feel powerful,
you have experienced a minuscule
of what exists to experience.
As the image above depicts:
To hold, you must
first open your hand.

I came across the following on FaceBook which lead me to do more research on this.
My Reply: A desired truth is one thing as a desired truth is easily ignored. Honest truth is another thing, most unacceptable by quite a number of people. This is the same with being too positive or only focusing on what is positive, to you. Extensive research has found that being overly focused on being positive can work in reverse, is the very popular love concept at present the same?
So many be and end alls when consciousness itself is of unlimited potentiality and variables.
I am not sure when honest truths, as opposed to desired truths, become disdainful to so many. The conditioning to desired truths over and above honest truth is evident, sadly enough.
As I have never been a person about taking control, rather releasing myself from control, I have never been a fan of mindfulness, especially the western version of mindfulness.
Extract: But as I pointed out in my recent blog post, these benefits don’t seem to have translated into society-level benefits. On the contrary, data about various social phenomena consistently indicate that on the whole, we are behaving more mindlessly (and often with serious negative consequences) than we used to.
“When meditators embrace judgment-free awareness and acceptance, their reality-monitoring accuracy may be impaired, increasing their susceptibility to false memories.”
“Some people use mindfulness strategies to avoid critical thinking tasks. I’ve worked with clients who, instead of rationally thinking through a career challenge or ethical dilemma, prefer to disconnect from their challenges and retreat into a meditative mindset.”
As I have previously stated, I have never been comfortable with mindfulness, not the way it is often practiced and used or abused in western society today. I simply release myself from control altogether which of course isn't for everyone.

The ego is exceptionally versatile and adaptable, with the ability to be conditioned to just about any circumstance or environment. I suppose this is why humans are able to adapt to various environments, as depicted in human history. Ego is simply a conscious aware of one's own existence or being or even importance. One example of this is being aware of our own importance to our children, each other or society as a whole, of course egotism, which is an exaggerated opinion of our own personal importance, is something else.
As often depicted in human history, the ego can be conditioned to numerous environments, including environments such as spiritual/religious, material, conflictive, harmonious, loving, hateful, and so on. The ego can also be conditioned to an environment of intuition or desire. As the ego can't be conditioned to conflict and harmony, love and hate, simultaneously, the ego can either be conditioned to be more intuitive or desiring. It is interesting why the ego can't be conditioned to an environment of intuition and desire simultaneously.
Often intuition is thought to be a feeling we get that something is presumed to be the case, an assumption purely based on feelings. When you actually condition your ego to become less desiring therefore more intuitive, intuitiveness takes on a different meaning. Intuitiveness is no longer just a feeling but an awareness. The less desiring we become, the more aware we become.
Desire is more to do with an ego conditioned to egotism. Yes, as we can condition our egos to desire, we can condition our egos to an environment of egotism. Actually, both desire and egotism go hand in hand, one not being able to exist without the other. To become egotistical takes desire as to desire takes egotism. Even if we desire to help human kind, the desire of even being seen to help creates egotism, an exaggerated importance. How many people today desire to be seen helping human consciousness?
Intuition on the other hand has nothing to do with desire. Try truly becoming aware without the things we don't desire to become aware of or feel. Intuition has no preference or desire; this means anything from hate to love, conflict to harmony, negative to positive, and so on, the ego can intuitively become aware of. In other words the honest truth is presented to the ego through intuition, not a desired truth, a dishonest truth. What ego conditioned to desire wishes to become truly aware or intuitive? It can't occur because our desires take control of the ego, conditioning the ego to desires rather than intuition.
If I endangered my own life to help others and was called a hero, I would tell these people where to go. My own ego would detest being called a hero, now, how many people would do this? An ego conditioned to desire will always react differently to an ego conditioned to intuition. Intuition, an awareness of my own ego, instinctively tells me that I wouldn't like be called a hero, even before becoming a hero. Of course an ego conditioned to desire would relish in being called a hero.
When I lived in the bush/forest as a younger person, I had a feeling when I was going to come across a snake, every time without exception. As we did as children, we walked around the bush in our bare feet so this intuition was highly beneficial for my well being. My intuition didn't tell me where the snake was going to be, only that I was going to come a cross a snake that day. If I expressed less desire, would have my feelings become more of an awareness? An awareness, as opposed to just a feeling, would have also told me where I was going to come a cross a snake in the bush.
You can desire one moment and become intuitive in the next moment, remembering that the more we desire, the less intuitive we become. When we desire, this is often in the absence of intuition and visa-versa. We will often only perceive through desire what we will experience, not what we will actually experience.
The following doesn't totally endorse what I have stated here but they are an interesting read, in my mind anyway.

I do apologise before hand, this is a lengthy post, sorry.
"You can't ask too many questions!!"
You can Nesther however this may not seem the case for a consciousness conditioned to time. Time, the finite, separates consciousness into numerous parts, in the process creating many more questions than what is really necessary. Why does a consciousness conditioned to the infinite as well ask fewer questions? Because the infinite is far less of motion, like with people who experience deep meditative states, far less questions need to be asked. In certain cases, even before a question can be formulated, the answer materialises.
Motion naturally separates energy; now imagine a motionless state of consciousness? Not easy for most people to imagine or comprehend to start with.
Think of time, finite existences, separated by starting and ending points and everything else in between, for example, birth and death. How many more questions are created by separating energy like this? Now think of a state of the infinite not separated by starting and ending points and everything else between.
Once you learn to quieten your mind from the intrusions created by time, the fewer questions you ask, but also the more answers you receive. I don't even have to ask a question in relation to my dream state, my dreams just tell me without asking questions. In saying this, while our environment is predominately influenced by the finite, the separation of energy, certain questions still need to be asked at times.
I am quite aware, as soon as I am no longer asking questions, is when I have reached a state of infinite consciousness. Most of the times I ask questions on behalf of other people, as they often ask questions primarily related to the finite instead of a balance of finite and infinite consciousness. Balance is truly the key Nesther, in my mind anyway.
A very good response Viviane.
Can a master reshape form, the material reality, at will and with ease?
Can a mere multinational reshape the material reality at will and with ease?
Because the reality is conditioned to the finite, the material, it seems a lot easier for a multinational to reshape a material world. Often a master won't bother with reshaping a material world, for it is of other people's will to keep it as it is anyway.
I do believe that a true master can reshape any reality, however, only a material consciousness desires to do this, primarily for its own benefit. A true master sees no benefit in gaining or possessing anything from a material reality.
I have definitely had my own consciousness reshaped by consciousnesses of infinite consciousnesses. It is like teaching a student something that they are not ready to learn, or at a certain stage to learn. Only a consciousness ready to learn from infinite consciousness is able to learn from infinite consciousness. When a consciousness is ready, even if that be a human collective consciousness, the ease of reshaping consciousness becomes easier for the master; otherwise there is no point if a consciousness isn't at that stage of learning.
The question isn't if a master can reshape any reality, it is if the consciousness of a reality is ready to be reshaped!!
Freewill is of the infinite, so yes, we often use freewill for inner growth in a reality of the finite. This often gives us balance, balancing out the finite reality with an infinite reality or consciousness. No wonder we feel more harmonious and at home in this state.
Finite realities/consciousness are of starting and ending points of creation, limiting consciousnesses and realities to certain variables.
Infinite realities/consciousness has no starting or ending points of creation, making for a limitless realities/consciousness. Also, the finite separates energy/consciousness where the infinite units energy/consciousness.
Infinite adjective - Having no limits or boundaries in time or space or extent or magnitude
Infinite noun - The unlimited expanse in which everything is located
Finite adjective - Bounded or limited in magnitude or spatial or temporal extent
Finite noun - Finiteness; The quality of being finite
There is no mistake why I often relate infiniteness to where everything derived from, including awareness/knowledge and wisdom. Simple conformation to what one has, to some extent, experienced. So often awareness/knowledge and wisdom is spoken from what one has only read and studied.
Viviane: True story as I knew the actual farmer.
A farmer told his farm worker to hold his ear to the tree while he raised an ax to a tree to strike it. The farm helper was amazed that he could here the tree suck in, like suck air in anticipation. To me, it is all to do with consciousness, even though trees may not be aware of their own existence like humans. The divine knowledge is the same.
This divine consciousness depends on our own consciousness in how this consciousness is received. It is very difficult for a consciousness of the finite to acknowledge and properly understand infinite consciousness as divine/infinite consciousness. Too many have become wholly conditioned to finite consciousness in my mind.
What makes divine consciousness so divine? It's infiniteness in my mind, a consciousness not limited to certain variables. What then makes human consciousness so human? It's finiteness, a consciousness limited to certain variables. We are not meant to be perfect, but we are supposed to hold true to our beginning or creator to some extent.

Preordained in relation to consciousness simply means that the will of a consciousness is already written, planed out, however, like a house plan, for example, what a consciousness experiences can be changed. If changed in line with finite existence, existences determined by time, motion and space, the change implemented is often inline with the environment. This means the environment determines in how the plan is rewritten or drawn, however, if a consciousness is conditioned to an unlimited infinite consciousness, the plan can be changed in infinite ways thus creating freewill. To me, as it is important to have so-called negatives and positives in a finite reality, it is important to have a balanced consciousness of the finite and the infinite.
This post was actually prompted by a person of the name of Chris. This is not the same person I have recently been in interaction with. It would seem that Chris realises that the questions we often ask are only inline with a consciousness conditioned to the finite, a consciousness often limited by time, space and motion. Why are so many consciousnesses also of the infinite uncomfortable of people who are primarily expressive of a finite consciousness? Materials and atheist are an example of this, where an imbalance of the finite overshadows the infinite, often leading to the perception of the non-existence of the infinite (God). The following that I wrote in reply to Chris will hopefully lead to a better understanding of what I am stating here.
Chris, everything is preordained (written), this means that the answers often depicts the questions asked by a consciousness conditioned to the finite. By asking so many questions created by the finite, the answers that the infinite can give are either misconstrued, ignored, often deliberately ignored in accordance with desires/bias, or the answers are incoherent or non-existent to a consciousness conditioned to the finite only.
Often, if the answers are not inline with what is expected or desired, they are dismissed in some way and in anyway possible. Materialist scientists and often atheists make this fundamental mistake, not just by asking too many questions but questions primarily based on the finite and the desires/bias the finite existences create.
I get the same from new age spiritually aware people. These people often ignore the negatives to be positive, thus allowing the negatives plenty of space to flourish in. Their biases/desires determine what they only become aware of, very simular to materialists and atheists.
Has the collective consciousness become mentally disorientated or imbalanced? Excessive abuse of energy is a sure sign a consciousness is not mentally balanced. How abusive to energy are mentally ill people? Now, how abusive to energy is a consciousness going to be when asking numerous questions primarily based on the finite? You get what we have today, why? Because the balance of the infinite and the finite is by no questions imbalanced.
I was brought up as a hardline atheist, I have been aware from my teens, I am now in my fifties, that the perception of God, the infinite, helps give us that balance. How many people today desire to take this balance away? Now, how imbalanced has the collective human consciousness become?
Today, I will only tolerate obvious bias to a certain extent.
By the way, just because everything is preordained, doesn't mean we, as a infinite consciousness, don't have freewill. Infinite means no limitations, no limitations of not having freewill. To state categorically that we don't have freewill, is a limitation, a consciousness conditioned to the infinite (God) doesn't work like this.
I really hope this helps. Try to let go of the conditions of perceptions based on time, space, motion, therefore finite. The perception of an infinite consciousness such as God has helped a lot of people keep a balance between the finite and the infinite. There are of course other ways to do this as well, anything that gives you an awareness beyond the perceptions of the finite thus helping to balance out consciousness with the infinite.
