Nothing But You


If what I AM is the source of absolutely everything,
what could I possibly want?

Beingness delights in what is...
what will be, or what was, has no meaning,
except in the weaving of a story..

The dream of past and future is beautiful (or not),
but nothing trumps what is,
because even the dream is only ever here, now,
appearing in what I AM.

There is no escape from what I AM,
the dream character is not able to detach from anything..
Oneness cannot separate into pieces.
There is only This, appearing as it does,
and there is no separation, anywhere.

Show me something that is not YOU,
and I'll show you how Love dreams..

Does this mean there is no suffering in the world and i just relax and don't care?

Hi Dennis,
Yes, "you" can relax, even if suffering does appear in the world, and this "relaxed you" just might move to do something about it, or not....but in reality there is no one relaxing, suffering, or doing...As for not caring, I don't know, can you not care?? Maybe there is just what looks like caring (and not caring), and no one doing it..

Love is beyond any thoughts about it...

Thanks for your comment.

Much love,
Mary

Whatever needs a story to define is FALSE. These stories are ideas common to all minds and these ideas come and go in the 'ether' of present awareness, knowing, seeing. What ever happens has no understanding available--can thoughts see/know/understand? Experiences happen and can't be understood--that requires another story and that too is false. There's no way out!

Mary, this posting, "Nothing but you" is truly remarkable. It's wonderful really.

Thanks Mary! This is the story of Dennis want to understand in a projected future and its redundant.
I watch his play and how life living him. This feel all new and the mind get "angry" and take over some time and demand it`s place! I see this to and need a reminder from a friend like you Mary.
++Love Dennis++

Hi RB,
Thank you for sharing your wonderful insights, and for the kind words...no way out, indeed. ;-))

Love,

Mary said...

Hi Dennis,

Love,

Everytime you take your eyes off it the dream jumps back into your life. When the dream darkens you keep your eyes wide open so as not to give it power, but of course, as its not you doing this, you can't be sure to be awake when the dream appears. Are we running by keeping our eyes so wide open?Is it fear that does this? Just relax would seem to be the answer, but then, who can do this?

"Just relax would seem to be the answer, but then, who can do this?"

Hi Julian,
Exactly! In the story, there seems to be awakeness and not-awakeness, relaxing and not-relaxing....but they are appearing in/as Being. There is no one to be awake or not.

The story is uncontrollable. All arises spontaneously and freshly - now. This might seem frightening to a "me," but that is simply another thought about a thought about a thought, arising in and as Being. Sometimes a collapsing or surrender seems to happen - another story. None of it needs to "happen" - Being IS and you are THAT, now. The desire to understand is also Being, loving-to-be...the character may look deeply, read blogs, meditate, contemplate and awaken - No one has done a thing! The play of oneness = free-fall!

Much love,
Mary

Hello Mary!

Loving your blog. I have written to you before and were kind enough to give an answer.
May I ask what is meant by 'no one doing anything'? I could, at least conceptually, see that the person or individual is just a thought or a concept, but it does sure feel like there is some doing going on, such as a 'me' reading this blog, a 'you' reading and responding, a me going ou and seeing friends etc. What am i missing here? Is this to be taken literally that nothig is happening?

Thanks

Love
Chris

Hi Chris,
Thanks for your comment, I'm glad that you visited. What is meant by "no one doing anything" is that there is no separate, individual entity apart from Oneness who is acting independently of LIFE itself. Whatever seems to be happening is simply what is, here/now. Until it's not. If we get down to the root of it all, what exactly is happening? There appear what we call feelings, sensations, visual images, smells, etc....and then a story is woven out of all of it, what we call meaning and labels are superimposed upon raw living, and voilĂ ! we have a "person living his/her life." But that's a story inside of YOU, made of YOU.. In reality, all of this is vibrating Beingness, no-thing.

Beingness simply is. And this is how it appears, and sometimes the appearances seem separate from each other, and from This. But in reality, nothing can be separate from what is - there is ONLY This. No exception. There is only YOU.

Words will never convey what This is...and yet, here they are ;-))

Love,
Mary

Hello Mary and thanks for your reply! It has cleared things up for me somewhat.

I guess there is only experiencing but without an experiencer. And then the mind comes in to explain everything away and personalize everything when in fact it's all just things happening with no real meaning.

Is this what is meant?

Thanks Mary for your patience!

Chris

Mary said...

Hi Chris,
That sounds great, I like your description. (And the story of "mind" coming in and explaining/personalizing things is also arising in Beingness, as Beingness...)

No patience required on my part! This is YOU communicating with YOU ;-))
Love,
Mary
