The Faithless Path:

(closer than breathing)                                                                                                                         

As the realization you have been unmoored from the conditioned response that faith is the Only Way to navigate through life, you are for all intents and purposes adrift & alone.  Help is needed at moment in time as you are yet unaware Sailboats were designed for sailing.  The greatest danger to your liberation exists at this first glimpse of freedom because you have no understanding of setting sail much less navigating in open waters.  Faith will no longer to serve you in this open awareness but on the contrary will haunt you with all the certainties of a Harbor safety.  The truth is you do not know this new realm nor who you truly are apart from the false certainties of faith and that is OK.  You see one cannot believe their way through this glimpse of reality with prayers or magic thinking.  What to do?  This moment of existential crisis not only cannot be avoided but to do so is to lay the wrong foundation for liberation.  There is no escape or escapee for that matter, the sky is indeed falling in the world of faith you have been bound to through no choice of your own. It is important to sit with the fact that you are clueless as to how to proceed in Open Awareness.  You do not know, and the faith tools you were taught are as useless as tits on a Bull.  What to do?  This is not a time for some answer that sums everything up so you can believe it and then add to your list of spiritual accomplishments.  That person who walks by faith and not by experience is of no value in Open Consciousness. Faith is not a substance in this reality nor is it evidence of things not seen, other than that of ignorance.  But what to do?  Notice that tension arises with the notion you might not have a master key that can be followed by an amen.  Our faith backgrounds arose in a time of fear of the unknown and therefore has little or no curiosity built into it.  This lack of curiosity takes many forms and one of them is a lack of diversity of thought and imagination. Notice in silence how the body reacts to the uncertainty of pure open curiosity, this is neither right nor wrong.  Remember the you who made all these choices that led to so many certainties are itself a construct of faith and therefore a fiction of a mind’s imagination.  Curiosity starts with a question rather than a statement of faith, so listen to your language, take your time friend there no rush.  You’ll soon discover all that rushing belongs to a story about you that is now being questioned but remember “these things must be done delicately.  What to do?  Well in all honesty it does not matter because this doing that is an act of faith will only serve to frustrate and what will really cook your noodle is this faith doer is the default setting of this faith conditioning.  My teacher says we are not the violin but rather the player, the violin can never know the artist.  Observe how faith pervades our daily life, like how our likes and dislikes are often nothing more than pre-programed prejudice.  Entertain the notion if you can, that you do not know what you love until you drop the Faith Person you take yourself to be, by faith, sounds circular does’ it.  This is the point in this writing where the Faith Person or in other words Persona is free to leave along with unfortunately the awareness it has ensnared.  I’ve nothing to sell or as Crazy House said, “one does not sell the land the people walk upon.”  This faith action cannot be interdicted by that which is imagined, which if you will only observe this after the fact.  It was John Lennon who asked the question, “imagine there’s no heaven I wonder if you can, no hell below us above us only sky.”  The only way to do this is to question this Traveler as well as the reality of her or his destination.  I’ve no need to mince words here this is the very core of the problem and if you are not ready but rather are preparing a debate defense.  Now is the time to stop reading before the onset of your very own Personal existential crisis.  What to do?  Understand this is about freedom not as it were a freedom lost or found nor something or someone somewhere else.  It is rather like those sunglasses on the top of your head that you have been looking for.  Notice that the truth of the matter is an effortless realization, once that is someone Woke points out the obvious.  That is my part in this humorous play, effortlessly pointing to the obvious despite a strongly held belief to the contrary.  Did I just say I was Woke?  Yes, I did, this confidence takes some time to fully settle into to.  What keeps the obvious from you is a thin thread a mustard seed of faith if you will, so depending on how tenaciously you hold a contrary belief the stronger its deception.  Notice this Awakening is a truth that is faith free indeed faith was and is the impediment, this awakening is effortless, it is seen to have always been the Truth from the very beginning of your search.  Again, be so exceedingly kind to yourself, after all you are not alone in this fog of faith, for at an early age most of us are taught to walk by faith and not the Truth of the Awareness!  It has been said by many a sage that “you are the Truth you’ve been looking for” so if you’re ready to stop the fruitless effort to discover the obvious, I see something wonderful before me.  What to do then is really a question of faith and this is the Faithless Path a discovery, a realization that is closer than breathing.  So, are we Ready, this moment is absolutely faith free and therefore what is the reality of this moment is faith free as well? Why is this moment faith free, its faith free because its unalterable by any figment of your egos use of faith projecting?  Any attempt to conceptually wish away what is, is the very definition of fruitless.  This conceptual position of the doer is in constant projection mode, to come to a stop if it could be the beginning of the end of its leading role and shaper of futures.  Stop and do not believe a word I say at this moment, just be quiet and notice this clown as my teacher would say takes the bow for the Ballerina at the center stage.  Watch this faith projecting machine pump out opinions on everything while being nothing at all but a reference point for memory.  Is it seen yet, and I put the question this way for a reason?  For it will become painfully obvious (no faith required) that the seeing is not what is being seen by this I mean that certain auto response of the faith person, judger of the Cosmos!   Therefore, so many well-intentioned truth seekers follow a path that includes faith projecting.  At that very instant you are (not you) moored once again and confined, the unbounded held in sway by a trick of the mind. Subject object, Subject object, Subject object, like do not like, like don’t like, like don’t like, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, is it seen yet?  Take your time, that was a Joke. 🙂

In this moment which dwells in you faith is not only unnecessary its counter to our true open nature.
