The Unknown Milk

 

The unknown

The unknown

Peace of mind, freedom and oneness with all comes from living in unknowing.
Unknowing is a obvious lesson from the mystery of creation.
Yet schools, religion, or others compulsively want us to believe their teaching of who or what we are or how to connect with God.

Can anyone truly know the big questions of life, where it came from and why?
Can anyone comprehend all the laws of nature, past and future?
Can anyone totally understand or control their own lives or others?
Can anyone explain what existed before this life or after this life?

No. Usually such motives are based on fear, self-centeredness or self serving.

But the unknown is limitless. Love and life was created by the unknown.
God is a mystery yet many have experienced something beyond self in their lives.
We have many blessings of life that show great love and care that came from the unknown, such as our lungs to breath, our eyes to see, our brains to think, our heart that beats. We do not have to try to breathe or try to pump the heart or do anything to these given gifts. We are created by and are apart of the great mystery that shows infinite love. It is beyond our comprehension and amazing without definition.

So why do so many say they know beyond what is perfectly unknown?

Its all one

RecoveryMeditation.org

Its all one. We are all an evolution from the horizon of the big bang to this very moment, life is an activity of the cosmos. There is no separation, our problems come from believing we are separate from God, the universe and others. All spiritual laws of nature are the same in every tradition, just said different. There are to many examples of this for me to name, but I have found this truth in all cultures and from many spiritual teachers from The Upanishads in the 5th century, to the hindu vedas and vedic knowledge, to the tao by lao tzu, the torah, the buddha, the cloud of unknowing 14th century, jesus, all the way up to modern day teachers like tolle. And many more. They all say the same things, just in different ways of the times, because they are not making it up, they are observing it, awakening and can see it and then interpreting it in ways that can be digested to others in their times. Being you are talking about Jesus and the Buddha, a good example of what they both said in different ways that had the same meaning was: Jesus: Be in the world but not of the world and Buddha: Have form but emptiness. Both meaning, you are here in form in the material world experience but we are really more of spirit and there for be empty of attachments as its not whats real, only temporary. Basically meaning, our problems come from our own thinking, expectations, beliefs that are all manifested by self. We have been programmed by centuries of what is not authentic to being, from family, school, tv, peer groups and society. WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE DO. This is well described in the Gospel of Thomas where the disciples came to Jesus and asked “Jesus tell us what our end will be” and Jesus said “You are asking the wrong question, you should be asking what the beginning should be, because you have been off track since the beginning. He said: If you come to know the beginning, you will automatically know the end and you will never taste death.” Stating even our view on death is man made and thats why we possibly view it as a problem or end. All the great teachers knew, be still and transcend thinking then the consciousness will flow in when we are relaxed and not blocking it. ~rg

The 2 Steps of Co-Creating

Blue Energy Field by Teresa Wicksteed

The 2 Steps of Co-Creating:

1. Become aware of when our own will is creating a problem or resistance and be quick to take it out of the equation.

2. Learn to surf. 

Note: Going against the power of the ocean will not work very well no matter how hard we apply our will.
But, if you learn to ride the energy wave of the ocean with little self assertion, we can become one with the energy flow just as we can with Gods energy and it allows us to choose some direction. We can turn left, or right, do a jump, go in the tunnel, have an incredible experience of life, in the moment, full of joy and happiness.
So this is really about learning to surf in our daily lives, in an invisible ocean of energy that always surrounds us.

Codependency

PattyPowers SoberCoach in NYC Posted on FB:

Yesterday, a therapist said “You know the saying – if you scratch an addict, you’ll find co-dependence underneath.” I’m curious what your thoughts are on this.

Ricky Gelb’s reply:
Ive worked with Pia Melody & Melody Beatie who tend to be known as the authors & therapist trainers on this topic and have heard this from most book trained therapists. But I feel they offer little as a solution. If the concept of Lack of power (pg 45 in AA Big Book) is true, than simply having knowledge of such info of being codependent offers little to a solution. Because we do not have the power to change it out of self will. They suggest, building a relationship with the power is the solution. In addition, thinking is the greatest form of powerlessness as we have short term thinking and change our minds (AA BB pg 24) eludes to, we can not stay “changed” from memory regardless of how bad or recent an event is. With that being said, I have found that when you scratch the Co-dependence underneath we find a lack of self-love/worth. Without self love, we can not experience true intimacy with, God, others & self. We will need love like a child rather than sharing great mutual whole love. We will be trying to fill the lack of self worth with other-esteem. I was an extreme codependent, I basically suffered from identity theft from childhood, was programed to have a false constitution that dictated every part of me, and to kill such pain I turned to heroin addiction. Today due to an experiential of a form of meditation, I have a new concept of self. I love the creation that I AM. I see the Namaste within, The God within me, the amazing creation I had not brought into view before, I see how I AM a creation of the evolution from the horizon of the big bang to this moment, which is oneness. The attachments to outward, others, and drugs became not needed anymore, so they could not continue to attach to me. They were gone, I was awakened, recovered after decades of struggle & suffering. I did nothing but get really still and consciousness took over and I was free. Soon you will be able to share and take others through this method I call Meditaining as soon as I finnish www.meditaining.com I actually believe that all addictions including Co-dependence come from trying to relieve the discomfort of living not authentic to being. As God and the universe created me to be not the man made self. Now as Jesus said, I can be in the world but not of the world or as the Buddha said I can have form but emptiness to the attachments.

My story of addiction and the solution. Speaking to a group of professional men on 07.22.12

This is my story, but its so not about me. After decades of severe addiction, I share how I found a new state of consciousness, gratitude, self love, peace and oneness. This AA meeting I was invited to speak at, is considered one of the best meetings in Tucson. I highly recommend this meeting, the recovery time of this group is incomprehensibly long. BUSINESS & PROF MEN’S MEETING (Men)
