Jeff's Plane

Jeff’s Plane

MELBOURNE, FL #NoSelf … and simpler and lighter and purer.

1:44 PM

Yesterday was pretty uneventful (as has been today so far). I pretty much waited around most of the day for a guy to replace the garage door at my parents’ condo (he didn’t) and burned the last of some DVDs (I did).

Today I cleaned out my old travel trailer—donating a few bags of clothes and office supplies to Goodwill. I just need to sign off on the title and I’ll be free of it. As I release more and more (stuff and identity), my life naturally becomes simpler and lighter and purer. I like it that way. It’s somehow cleaner—more authentic. Probably a lesson in there somewhere—something about possessions and the possessed.

Not much else going on. It has become clear that when I’m actively doing something—when the mind is focuses on a project—the me-thing disappears. I’m sure that’s the same with everyone. It is only when we have a moment of introspection—the turning inward of consciousness—that the self re-appears. Probably a lesson in there somewhere also—something to do with the temporary nature of the self.

  1. Good insight – possessed by possessions we become heavier. And whatever we focus on, the observer effect. The Observer (consciousness) creates reality simply by observing. Quantum physics proves that our “reality” exists by being experienced, and all matter is actually condensed energy, ever changing and impermanent. And all energy is actually consciousness, therefore it is consciousness influencing itself.
    The observer is not apart from the observation. The experimenter is not apart from the experiment. This experiment also shows that God remains unmanifest unless you participate. Without God, we cannot. Without us, God would not. We are all co-creators of reality with God. God moves only when there is intention or prayer. Faith is focus of mind. Happy happy!

  2. A lesson in possessions.

    And

    A lesson in identity fading away when mind focuses on a project.

    I agree with the possessions, naturally I’ve been getting rid of things i uses on a daily basis. There’s got to be a lesson in there, but there maybe not. I have observed this happening, it is like I feel as though I don’t need to carry anymore than the body clothed and that is enough. Which could be the lesson, “the body clothed and that is enough”. A lesson in what you truely need maybe? I didn’t mean to come up with that mearly point out I’ve been going through a similar process and that I’d look for a lesson.

    I dont experience the lack of identity when i get into a project because i get that into it i could forget i exist. i dont go anywhere though.

    Peace and Blessings
