Pure Awareness-The Only Solution

Written by Mathew Naismith

I love people pointing out my shortfalls within my posts as it’s the only way I’m going to become aware of my own shortfalls at times. The following response by Kitty was in relation to my last post titled, The Collective Mind and Immunisation, this reply showed me where I wasn’t being specific enough within this post and numerous other posts of mine; hopefully my reply back to Kitty will specify exactly where I am coming from in all my posts which I have also inserted.  

I have always thought that meditation was necessary only to clear ones head for the time being, meaning ; if a person is stressed out and has a lot on their mind and are in need of a "wipe the thoughts clean and start over moment" or to just clear the mind / head because they have overwhelmed themselves by over-thinking.

Still, I did wonder what the point was when you just draw a blank for however long.

I would think to myself about others who did meditate "What good is that doing, you aren't thinking about the solution or the next step to progress, you’re just in a dead zone"

I have a new take on it altogether now.

Yes, I believe once in the state of "mind emptiness" the soul/ spirit is then on a new level outside of this realm - a higher place that perhaps we originated from but have no remembrance of.

I can't even imagine what it would feel like ...... just being one with source.

We all truly belong in that space but many of us have no idea how to get back there even for a moment. (especially me)

Definitely opened my mind to a broader perspective.

Great Read!

Yes I suppose it would seem that way, basically leaving a problem without a solution. To me not everything needs a solution, for to have a solution one would also need a problem to solve, is there a problem in the first place to be solved?  

Making people aware of egotism being an illness is a solution without actually taking any action towards a problem; all what one really needs to do is be aware.  

I try and stay away from the push and pull effect, seeing a problem as a problem is the push effect, seeing a solution as a solution is the pull effect, we are pushing away one to pull in another and on and on it goes. However on the other hand if we only became aware without taking action, we neither have a push nor pull effect; the cycle of chaos is broken.

You could say meditation is an action, pulling in whatever solution we think we need giving us a pull effect!! Yes it is if we are using meditation to solve a problem, in this case the disease egotism, many people use meditation in this way.  What other way is there to use meditation and avoid the push and pull effect? Using meditation to just become aware and aware of neither a problem nor a solution but just be in pure awareness while meditating. When you sit within pure awareness, there are neither problems nor solutions just pure awareness.

The only way meditation can help us with diseases like egotism is if we meditate less on solving a problem. Is egotism a problem?  At the human level of awareness it most definitely is so we react by pushing and pulling, creating a continuous chaotic existence. This is why most of the times in my posts I’m only writing about awareness instead of a solution because awareness is the solution without taking action other than being aware.  Just being aware is actually not an action, it’s just being who we are, pure awareness/consciousness.

While we are meditating in pure awareness, we do come up with solutions to our human problems; does this mean we can’t pull in a solution while meditating as this will only add to the chaos? Yes but only if we react as if there is a problem in the first place.

In my post titled, The Collective Mind and Immunisation, I didn’t have a solution other than being aware of a disease like egotism through meditation which allows us to become aware of our higher conscious selves without action.  The only solution we need is awareness; I feel no other action needs to take place that is why most of my posts are just about awareness and of course acceptance.  

Thanks for pointing this out Kitty; I do come up short within my posts at times.

I should elaborate that Kitty made me more aware through her encouraging response towards my post which allowed me to be more specific in where I am usually coming from within my posts, I just took this for granted. 

Most people expect to hear a solution which I don't normally give except just to be aware, I honestly was not aware of this shortfall until Kitty's response, so thank you Kitty.

Spirituality and the Push and Pull effect

Written by Mathew Naismith

I had quite an interesting exchange with another person regarding my last post titled Love, lust and unconditional love. This person brought up a different perspective of the push and pull effect which I feel is similar to cause & effect, action reaction concept.  To me this person made so much sense so I thought I would share our exchange and this person’s perspective with all my readers.

Lust is a movement of pulling or grasping. When there is a movement of pulling in front, obviously the back is pushing simultaneously, unconsciously rejecting while the front is consciously or subconsciously indulging. When there is neither movements but simply be with what is unconditionally, true love which was never born and will never dies in time reveals itself as one with all.

Very well conversed +Eddie Lau, a very different perspective on this subject, thank you.

You could say to pull/push is of the creation of desire/lust.

Mathew Naismith pull/push is desire/hatred, they are indeed two sides of a coin.

Eddie Lau, lust seems like a fixated attachment, once we release ourselves of these fixations we are indeed free from the push/pull effect which is what I think causes an existence to become chaotic, it makes perfect sense. 

Everything including lusts formed/solidified when there is an owner to claim them thinking they must be belonging to oneself out of delusions.

The moment we are free from any movement that creates resistance with the nature, no formation can ever create. Therefore everything is free without movement any perception of movement within the boundless space is delusion/illusion.

It is petty and pity to own something or everything within the nature for the sustenance of our happiness and existence not knowing we are already one with the nature of abundance when we own nothing including ourselves.

Eddie Lau, once we realise we don't own anything including our thoughts, we are truly free from our own bondage's of this push & pull effect.

Our attachments to ownership causes us to rely on this bondage to be happy, it's sad. 

Most people aren't aware, once you release yourself from this bondage you don't have to look or try to buy happiness, it comes quite automatically.

I'm glad you made me aware of this push & pull effect Eddie, it makes so much sense to me. 

This discussion is still in progress however to keep the post to a reasonable length I’m stopping it here.
