Unconscious Blaming

Blaming others for your discontent is the epitome of unconsciousness…Blaming yourself for your discontent is a little better, at least you are looking inward…Blame no one and there is no one to be discontented…

Pointing at others and blaming them for your arisen discontent is the epitome of unconsciousness. Even though this isn’t the fault of the pointer, it still remains the lowest form of existence because there’s not one iota of love in pointing at and blaming others for your discontentment. Hate can only arise from within you if it’s already there, this has nothing to do with who or what triggers it. It doesn’t matter what another person does, as long as there’s blaming there’s unconsciousness.

Blaming yourself for your discontent is being semi conscious, at least you are looking inward to a degree and not pointing out there at others as much. There’s still much unconsciousness here because blame is blame no matter who is being blamed. For forty nine years I was the way I was (selfish) without the slightest inkling there was another way to view life. Ten years ago I learned there was no other way for me to behave because I was unconsciously conditioned to do what I did; there wasn’t a choice. Hence although one is accountable for what they do, there’s not much responsibility if you are only doing what you have been conditioned to do.

Here’s what happens when a person wakes up. Blame no one and there is no one to be unconscious. Love becomes your base and there’s no one to blame because there’s no separation, there’s only unity. This unity is with life itself and with this comes the understanding that life is simply as it is and it never needs to be different. This is because needing it different would be blaming life itself for things not being as you think they should be, and that’s all we do when we blame is want whatever has occurred to be different…

Beyond Words

Without applying labels and stories to what happens to you, there’s existence beyond words. This is where you will be free from attachment to self and without attachment you can truly be you.

If everything that’s done is based on a self doing it you will need to keep doing to remain what you think is whole. This attachment to self is the main thing that keeps you entrapped to your own suffering. Sit with this next part and see exactly where is this self that’s so adamantly defended. What if you lost your hand would you still exist? How about both hands, now take everything away expect for the mind. Let’s just say that remains intact so there would still be existence. Even if you lost your mind there would still be existence, you just wouldn’t be aware of it. So what part of the story of this self is you? The limbs, or the story of the loss of them, the mind, or the story of the loss of it; I guess there wouldn’t be a story if there wasn’t a mind.

There’s nothing real where the self is that’s conjured up in the mind. This isn’t to say there isn’t a self, but what part of the made up story is really this self that is attached to? What part of it makes you complete or incomplete? In my case is it my role as a husband, father, son, brother and so on? Or is it my job title or my writings? All of these things exist, but they’re only a story. Without applying labels and stories to what happens to you there’s existence beyond words. This is where you will be free from attachment to the story of self and without attachment you can truly be you.

Conditioned Problems

The Conditioned Mind loves to create problems, until this is seen it will continue to do so even though everything in life is temporary, especially the Conditioned Mind problems that are created…

Problems are created by a Conditioned Mind that doesn’t accept what’s occurring in the present moment. It wants the present moment different and it actually makes you think if it was different all would be well; this is the fallacy of the Conditioned Mind. All is well right now, but because of the Conditioned Mind it’s not seen so a problem is created just so you have something to do. I’ve always had a tendency to make everything that occurs a problem, and although I don’t attach to this as I once did, many times the problem view is my first reaction.

Yesterday I was washing clothes and I put them in the dryer. When they were almost finished drying, I opened the dryer to pull out a shirt, there were blue spots on it and also on some of the other clothes. I pulled them all out and found a pen in the dryer. There was also blue ink all over the dryer. The first response was my usual this is a problem reaction, the clothes are ruined. I took a step back and took a deep breath. I grabbed a shirt and cleaned a spot, the ink came out. I then cleaned the inside of dryer. I rewashed all the clothes and an hour and a half later it was as if nothing had happened. I don’t concern myself too much with my reactions anymore, the attachment to what occurs is what I watch now. The clothes can be substituted with anything. The Conditioned Mind loves to create problems, until this is seen it will continue to do so even though nothing is truly a problem because everything passes, that is to a mind that sees just how conditioned it is.
