The Unconscious

The unconscious is very real and is a huge part of us. By unconscious I mean the stored up unfinished business from earlier in our lives. It includes the parts of ourselves that are anesthetized because we are too afraid to be that part in the world. It is like shadow but can be looked at as a self-regulating entity that gives to consciousness only what consciousness is ready to handle. If we treat our unconscious with love and respect it will treat us relatively gently. If we try to destroy it or try to get rid of it, it will treat us in the same way. 

The question is how do we make the unconscious conscious by finishing our unfinished emotional business and by getting back the parts of ourselves we're not aware of. This is a skill that can take years of practice. I will be giving some helpful hints in making this journey; it is perhaps the most important, most difficult journey anyone can take.

Outside of Outside

No matter what you feel, do, or think, there is something outside of it. It cannot be called a space because it is outside of space. It is outside of outside. You can only discover it by resting in it and not making it an object. It has no qualities the mind can give it, yet it leaves a wake we can rest in. This surrendering heals us and restores us. We are the spotless lens that can never be seen, but it's own spotlessness brings true bliss.

Intelligence

It is important to be our intelligence. Intelligence is both outside ourselves and inside ourselves. It is yet our intelligence. We access it by recognizing it. Can you recognize the intelligence that you are? Not as an idea but something so real it can be cut with a knife? Intelligence is very healthy, very energy intensive. My intelligence becomes me, focuses me, determines what’s important and goes beyond anything I can ever think. It penetrates right through my reality box. It takes me to new realms. It is always fresh and alive, never bogged down in old preconceptions and knowledge. It is much faster than any thought. It is not separate from the intelligence of the galaxies. It instantly shifts to what is appropriate. It allows me to dissolve into nothing when I'm not needed. It pulls my attention away from what's not needed to what's needed within a field of equanimity.
