Reminding us about the essence of spiritual teachings

GR3Do you let go of Divinity, the omnipresence that is forever there? How can you let go of omnipresence when it is present everywhere?

Who is trying to let go of what? Who asks this question of letting go? Who has to let go? Is the core of your personality, your heart, the eternal spirit in you, asking you to let go? Or is it that superimposed little mind of yours functioning that wants to get out of the cage? That beautiful golden cage imprisoning you, the mundane things of life that seems so important, this “me” and this “mine,” this grasping, this greed, this terror that goes through your mind all the time pulsating, pulsating there. And as a result, there is no peace for you. There is no peace. And there is no ease. For without ease you cannot have peace.

The idea that is superimposed upon the mind is this, that I am imprisoned in this cage, and I’ve got to get out! I’m a bird of freedom. I am freedom itself! But why have I imprisoned myself in this cage? Who is the prisoner? And who is the one who has put you into the prison? No one but yourself. For your true nature is freedom. You are free from all shackles. Your true nature’s divine. For nothing else can exist in this entire universe, but Divinity itself. If Divinity is omnipresent, where is there place for any imprisonment? You are free, but you have been so structured by your own mental thoughts all the time, superimposing them upon your freedom, superimposing this bondage upon freedom when you will say, “I’m bound, I’m imprisoned, I’m caged, I’m locked up! And I’ve got to let go.”

Letting go is a misconception, yet the entire world is bound in this misconception. It is bound in this misconception because man does not want to realize that he is free. Freedom is his nature. Divinity is his nature, and Divinity knows of no bondage. And if there’s no bondage what do you want to let go of? What are you holding on to? You are holding onto a conception which you have formulated in your mind: a conception that I am this or I am that. And that conception in the mind is the cause of bondage. So in reality there is no bondage. There is no letting go. But what you have to let go is the misconception you have formulated in your mind, and the very word “misconception” presupposes the word “conception.”

Why have you conceived this idea? Why have you conceived that I am in bondage and I must let go? What am I trying to let go? It is this very conception in your mind that binds you, that shackles you. And that shackling takes the form of various inhibitions and repressions that you have superimposed upon yourself. It is a superimposition. It is a projection. All superimpositions are projections like a projector, projecting on a totally white screen creating pictures there. Superimposed upon that which is pure, and you are pure. You are nothing else but purity, for again to repeat, if Divinity is omnipresent, there existing in every cell of your body, where is the place for impurity? Impurity again, is a negation of the word purity and that “im” nonsense is created by yourself. There is no “im,” there is no “im” at all. There is only purity and every human being is totally pure. Every cell of his body, every formation within himself, everything, every hair on your head, contains that divine essence and that can never be impure.

So what do you want to get rid of? What do you want to let go? You want to let go of the superimpositions, the misconceptions that has been thrust upon you by the environment and also by the patternings that has been formed within your mind. You are not a creative being. You just are. You’re not a creative being because you cannot create. You cannot create any superimposition either. And neither can you create your reality. Because you just are. You dwell within the field of that isness. You just are.

Now where do these superimpositions come from? They have been inflicted upon you through various experiences in this life, or other lives, whatever you want to believe. There has been superimpositions inflicted upon you and because of you not recognizing your real identity, that I am that I am. You have become conducive to these superimpositions that is conditioning you. So, these conditionings are the things that you must let go. And realize for once and for all, that I am the manifestation of the Manifestor. And the Manifestor can never manifest anything that is imperfect. I am perfect. These things are just superimposed upon me by the circumstances around me, throughout so many lifetimes, or perhaps, less lifetimes.

So, through many lifetimes or even this lifetime, since my birth, realizes each and every one of you. You have been subjected to conditionings thrust upon you. You have seen the cruelties of parents. You have seen the kindnesses of parents. You have seen what it has done to you. You have seen how you are to escape from your real self into unreality because of things thrown upon you. That comes from our own personal weakness. Where does this weakness come from? It does not come from the time you were born. It goes further back. It has certain hereditary values. It has values perhaps in ages past. Whatever you want to believe. And these weaknesses in the form of a burden you are carrying.

How to lessen the burden? How to get rid of the weaknesses? How to just let go of it all? Firstly, you don’t hold anything and there’s nothing to let go in reality. But you have to let go of those impressions that have been created in your mind by being receptive to outward circumstances which has been internalized. This means that externality has become an internality and that internality creates the impressions upon your mind which is binding to you. That is why most people in this world are emotionally ungrown! Children, children, children! Emotional children that has not grown up to maturity to realize one factor, that whatever the circumstances have been were inflicted on me, and I am at fault because I have made myself conducive to the inflictions upon me.

So let me get rid of that conduciveness. Let me get rid of the receptivity and that is the way I can let go. I can let go of all my hangups. And nothing else in the world can influence me if I have no hangups. If I am not hooked. That’s the word you use in America, being hooked. And everyone is hooked into some kind of trauma within themselves.
