It’s so fascinating to notice how different life is after a genuine recognition of our True Nature.
All of us spend a majority of our early lives lived through the interpretations of our mind. Our minds are largely fear-based, and have very distinct filters that block true clarity. Some of us get a glimpse of the vast life-force and clarity that is here aside from the mind. And some of us come face to face with the true nature of reality, and get a big shock about how different reality is. Most of our language and thoughts are fueled by fear. We are innocent in this because we have been conditioned from infants to think and talk and act from fear. For many of us, we are aware enough to know it hurts: life feels hard, life is a struggle. But it feels like that is true about life, without being aware that it’s only true about conditioning—which is to say, the filters of your mind.
The great news is that we can drop conditioning. I don’t believe you need an awakening into true nature to do this. In fact, I do this with people all day long: drop conditioning without a massive awakening, resulting in huge freedom and fulfillment. But in this conversation, we are talking directly from True Nature and looking at the conditioning.
I think for many this conversation will sound ridiculous—like a bunch of false conclusions about life. However, this is because most of us are living with a bunch of conditioned ideas in the mind chronically making false conclusions about life.
Isn’t that amazing? Life with mind, versus life with life. A very different experience.
