- 4. Why just Being is a goal we want to achieve as Humans
I am taking words maestro Mr Joel Roberts up on his challenge! At his seminar ‘The Language Of Impact’ in Los Angeles last February, he said that ‘Being’ was beyond description. It is a place I know well, since beginning to seek safety in the higher realms of consciousness as a small child, when the only place I had to run away to, was as far as I could get behind my eyes.
One example of this is when my older brother would come into my bedroom at night. He was encouraged to hurt me , actually to attempt to kill me, so it would look like a home accident , at my mother’s ‘order’. She had an escape route this way and was a firm believer in the old British teachings “people have children to do their dirty work”. She wanted me removed from the picture, and this way she would not be held responsible.
My brother grew frustrated, as what he did to me only injured me, gave me scars and gave him a feeling of inadequacy. I could sense his annoyance and I did my best to avoid him at all times.
I could not get away when he visited me in bed however, and he would step up onto it, so he was standing on top of me. He would pin me down with his shoes and hold a foot up over me, then stamp around me, threatening to stamp on my body and head, moving his foot to just miss me and hit the bedclothes.
This is one example of when I would go as far, and as fast, behind my eyes as I could. There was no other place to go, as my body was being restricted and controlled.

‘Being’ is a feeling state, and a higher, more evolved state, than just thinking. To achieve a ‘feeling state’, requires a controlled cease, of thought activity, or what I call the thought ‘conveyor belt’.
It is our efficiency of design that sees to it, that thoughts flow along what I call the ‘corridor’ or ‘conveyor-belt’ behind our ‘mind foyer’. These thoughts are given us, by our subconscious, and are thoughts that connect/attach/associate with, everything, that we experience in any given moment from all of our senses and abilities.
In my Self Mastery course structure, “Human Being Essentials”, I have Thought Mastery at semester 1, with Feeling Mastery at semester 2 or beyond, to demonstrate the higher level and governing influence, of the power of feeling energy.
‘Being’ is a superior, specialized, advanced, higher, more evolved, state, than thinking or doing. It is the ability to hold a state of a feeling regardless of what goes on around you, it is a non-reactionary constant state. For example:
I can just Be love and restfulness or
Be blissful contentment or
Be pure raw sexual energy or
Be peacefulness or
Be radiant love or
Be Creative energy or
Be righteous guidance or
Be loving compassion or
Be healing sound or
Be Woman energy or
Be Divine light or
Be vital enthusiasm or
Be contagious fun and joy and so on.
When we can hold a thoughtless space, we allow for what else is available to us as Human Beings.
What then happens, is information arrives inside us, without us putting it there. Without us needing to access it from our memory, our thought space or anywhere else. We do not need to think it, imagine it, dream it or otherwise.
Information – or an idea – ‘comes to us’. The words ‘come to mind’ may be used here, and you may have already experienced this happen.
It may be an amusing thought – our spirit guidance loves it when we laugh.
It may be the answer to something you already wanted to know.
It may operate like a commentary, where you get data that corresponds with what your eyes scan.
It may be the answer to a life drama, where you are ‘guided’ – given the idea – of the next moves you need to make for your life.
You may receive this information as thoughts that are similar to ones you create, or you may see it visually as though you are watching a DVD. It may come to you in a way that is unique to you.
In this space you can trust that you will know what you need to know when you need to know it. This is the “faith” that is referred to in the Bible and similar of any known religious ‘Faith’.
In this disciplined thoughtless space there is no need at all, to be thinking about anything.
The fantastic consequence of achieving this ability, is Life is magnified exponentially in this state. Every bit of energy that you usually put into thinking goes into receipt of life.
Every sense is magnified to the extent that you cannot believe, believe me.;)
The universe rewards us with an increase in sensitivity. ESP or extra-sensory perception, also known as being psychic, is only a natural consequence of spending time in your higher levels of consciousness.
As time goes on, life just gets better and better and makes more and more sense.
I could spend hours absorbing just what my eyes take in, when I look at a tree, the depth of colour, the zoom ability, it is absolutely incredible, and all because I am not thinking.
Sexual pleasure takes on whole new height of ecstasy, as we are able to be fully present in this activity – ‘Being Present’ is just being another way of saying ‘Being Conscious’ or ‘holding a thoughtless space’. Tantra is just another way of saying ‘Living Consciously’ but it is for sex that it is more widely associated.
No time spent holding – or attempting to hold – a thoughtless space, is wasted as rewards being to occur straight away. The first of which is thinking is actually easier and sharper, and we tend to notice an increase in our senses as time goes on.
These rewards continue to build and increase until we leave the earth.
It is simply Human to master your thoughts.
Begin with noticing them. Bring an awareness of them to your consciousness. Have the intent to begin to notice them.
Notice when they first arrive, do you have a pattern to them? What thought do you get when? Are they ‘ad hoc’, appearing to you ‘willy nilly’, or are they associated with what you are looking at?
And very importantly, notice the space between the thoughts. There is one, no matter how small or inconsequential at first, and this is an essential part of Thought Mastery.
You are alive now….but being able to just Be…is Being A.L.I.V.E !!!! : )
