I have been on the path for 20 years and yesterday I realized for the first time that something was perceiving ‘Javi Gomez’ do its pefromance (thoughts, attention, moving etc). The heart is ready to explore the effortlessness of reailzing awareness. THe less I do , the better. I know advaita. Been on that path for 8 years now. But I feel like zazen zen meditation for 5 hours in a train station is going to help to realize my true nature or god.I will start this thursday untill I am realized. I read that you did zen too. DO you have 1 advice for me when I do this zazen meditation sessions on a daily basis here in holland?
One can sit for 20-30 years and not transcend the personal identification. Transcending the mind requires a passionate investigation, inquiry into the Self, complete surrender and grace.
You have a glimpse that you are not Javi, the body mind. This glimpse is a key glimpse to contemplate. What am I truly? Am I something that is perceived or am I the invisible Self, the formless reality of consciousness? If you sit, contemplate consciousness. Contemplate the Truth. Contemplate the reality of Being Awareness, the invisible Self. Contemplate the eternal infinite Reality that is transparent and borderless.
Seek the company of a realized teacher that teaches the direct path. Such a guide will take you home.
In the meantime, investigate ‘What is the reality of my experience?’ and return to the knowledge ‘I am aware’ and ‘I am aware that I am aware’. Contemplate this knowingness as being what you truly are: Namely pure universal Awareness.
Contemplate ‘What am I truly?’, who is sitting? Who is doing Zazen?
Contemplate the sitter without relying on thoughts, without relying on the mind.
Find out what you truly are without thought, without the past, without time.
Who is seeking advise?
What is the observer?
What is the seeker? Is there a separate self called Javi? Am I the body instrument or invisible borderless transparent Being Awareness?
I hold on line Satsang every week. Do your best to attend and ask your questions if any questions arise.
I will contemplate it. Funny enough that is what I have been doing for a long time. What is this I? IS there a doer? Aware of awraeness. YES!!!!! I will attend to your satsangs whenever I feel ready . First I need to feel zazen out in the train station. I realized today again that I am not the doer or thinker of thought and it brings me the most joy of life. TY. There is no need for yuo to respond. Your answer in the post is exactly what I have been doing.
