Thoughts Come from the Subconscious
There are three stages to do with the awareness of thought.
The first stage is when we are asleep, a parade of thoughts stream out of our subconscious and we are not fully aware of them.
The second stage is when we are aware and our consciousness is like a spotlight that allows us to see each thought as it parades past the light.
The final stage is when our awakened consciousness rises up to occupy the centre of the mind, emitting light in every direction, allowing us to see all of the thoughts, above, below, left and right.
We need self-remembering to strengthen the presence of the consciousness. We must also use self-remembering to bring our Being to us, so that it is our Being that can take the impressions, and consequently deal with them, avoiding that our egos take the impressions and cause us to make mistakes.
When Our Will is Comprised
When we do not feel ok, our will has been compromised. It is in TE our subconscious. Will is what determines our state 'of consciousness.
We need to-use will in our awakening. Because awakening is something that must be determined and made to obey our conscious will.
The logical confrontation of the Being, is about using our consciousness. It is to see the logic of the ego and contrast it against the logic of the Being.
We need both sides, that is the logic of both the Being and the ego, because we with the help of duality we wake up! We need to constantly contrast both sides to wake up.
Responsibility and Yearning
The result of the logical confrontation of the Being is responsibility and yearning
Responsibility surges in us after the logical confrontation with the Being as the responsibility for having created the darkness and yearning surges in us as the yearning for the light.
Both these two aspects need to be present in us. If not there will be and painful or difficult imbalance.
By putting these two aspects conjointly into action we can repent, and not repeat the mistake and come to dissolve the darkness.
To do the above is to feel responsible for the problem and to yearn for the solution. The dissolution of the ego is both factors working together, simultaneously.
To feel only responsible leads to guilt. To only yearn leads eventually to a repetition of the mistake.
We can not remain seeing only one side, seeing only the light without seeing the darkness. This one sided vision leads to error.
If we only focus on the light, we can make the same mistake again. Because our consciousness will not have learnt from the mistake.
In conclusion, take responsibility for the error and yearn for the solution or remedy.
Every specific problem has a very specific solution. General solutions or statements do not help!
