On Having a Drill Instructor as a Teacher . . .

The “ego” loves to be pandered to and adored.  There is nothing wrong with this … everything has it’s time and place.  However, everyone could use a Drill Instructor from time to time (or constantly) because in a sense The D.I. is the “ego” (who we *think* we are in this world)’s worst nightmare and the “True Self” (that which cannot be thought)’s best Friend.  The reason The D.I. is not “your” friend is because you cannot predict what The D.I. will do and The D.I. is the Best Friend to the Self because the DI can predict what you do in a flash, in fact, usually The D.I. sees what you will do ten moves ahead of where you are at. 

The D.I.'s job is to break you of who you think you are.  You may want to fight The D.I. but you know even when you do it, you don’t really want to win.  You want to lose yourself and yet at the same time are afraid of the unknown.  Who you *think* you are is like a “woobie” blanket that you had as a child … it couldn’t really protect you from anything but it sure felt like it could.  That is what the “ego/who you *think* you are” is … it is a blanket/skin that is wrapped around “Nothing” to make it seem like you are protected from something, but even the *something* that one thinks they are protected from … is in Nothing.  Not “nothing” like blank … Nothing like “No Thing.”  This means that in a sense there is something there but it is nothing that you can use the senses for to understand.  The “ego/ who you *think* you are” attempts to understand everything, yet it is The D.I.'s job to remove what you have come to understand and leave you empty(ier) of who you think you are.

You hear people all the time say … I am a smoker … I am a drinker … I am a vegetarian … I am a meat eater … I am a man … I am a woman … I am an alcoholic … I am a drug addict … I am a home maker … I am white … I am black … I am Native American … I am Indian … I am Chinese … I am Christian … I am buddhist … I am atheist … I am a husband … I am a wife … I am a sister … I am a brother … I am a department store clerk … I am a musician … I am a writer … I am a poet … I am an astronaut … I am an inventor … I am human … I am (insert name here).  Yet you … the True You … are none of those things.  All of that is Secondary to who you Truly Are.

This one is lucky it actually has a Drill Sergeant as a Teacher.  Not Lucky for “me” just Lucky.  This doesn’t mean that everyone should go join the Military … though it’s a start. 

When the Student is Ready … the Teacher will appear.  How will you know the Teacher has appeared … the Teacher will not pander to you.  You won’t always get what you want but you will get exactly what you need.

Being “Home” School’d is being School’d by what is already innate in you.  First it has to be tapped into.  This discovery can be made through the investigation and interrogation into the “self” that one thinks they are (body, personality, race, gender) to the Core of who they actually Are.  The tool that works best in making this discovery is the question “Who am I?”  Once one has dug through the layers of “personal identity” then the Core begins to shine through more clearly.  This doesn’t have to take a lot of time but for most, like this one, it does.  The discovery is a split second blast into no “self” and then the investigation continues through one’s life as more and more of who one thinks they are … is discarded.

Home is at the Core of you.  This took many, many years to discovery here.  It is not your location, or the structure you live in or the body with which you get around … all those things will change and eventually disappear.  True Home is Always.   Nothing can make it disappear because it isn’t something that comes and goes.  It does not change or morph or become anything.  It Silently waits … it is Stillness  beyond any meaning of the word … and it waits for you … for your discovery of It (and yet IT is not an it). 

As you discover your True Home, then everything you learn about the world and beyond or before … is taken more and more lightly, it is still interesting but you know that it will all fade and so there isn’t such great importance placed on it and you begin to rest more in just seeing how things are and not how you “want” them to be.  Eventually even your “wants” disappear and life is just what it is … a constant surprise. 

This is being Home School’d … you are School’d in the Home that you are In and all of life then comes to assist that Teaching, which is actually an unlearning of what you have been originally been taught and accepted as true and real.

It is for everyone and everyone has it in them, yet not everyone is interested in knowing who they are ... oddly enough … most would rather just be told … because it’s easier to just be told … you are “your name” you are “your body” you are “your religion” you are “the country you live in” you are … blah, blah, blah.  To discover who you are … you have to throw away all that you have been told and be empty of knowing … as you become more transparent the Light of Who You Are leads the Way.

You begin with Faith that you would not lead yourself somewhere you wouldn’t want to go and you follow in spite of the fear of the unknown. 

If you are true in your desire/yearning to know the Truth of You.  Everything will show up to Light the way.

BE WELL . . .

The other day while taking a run … there was a viewing going on of some comments that had been made by a Friend that is currently in prison.  He was talking about how he sees all his mistakes and is going to do better now … see’s that he fuct up and is going to fix everything, become a better this and do a better that.  And a vision of all the cards people send out when one gets sick went by saying “Get Well” or “Get Well Soon.”  And what appeared in response was … don’t “get well” … “Be Well.”

Such a simple twist of words however something was so clearly seen and maybe it can be relayed here.  If one is “getting well” it means they aren’t currently “Well” now.  But right now is all there actually is … so just “Be Well” in it.  Stop trying to “become” better and just “Be” Great right now.

This is where one is pointed to being a “Clean Slate.”  If there is a sense that you have done something that you must fix then do whatever it is to fix it.  However, it is much simpler and easier to just have a Clean Slate and then send out the word (from the Inside) that anything unresolved is welcome to come to you and when it comes polish it up … wipe it clean and begin where you are … right now.

Nothing can be done about the past except in the moment you are in.  So “Be Well” right now … not tomorrow … right now … stop seeing yourself as “not well.”  And just simply “Be Well” in each moment that arises.  Don’t “Be Well” for anyone else … “Be Well” for you and then everyone else benefits and begins to “Be Well” through their interaction with you.  Maybe start making new cards that say “Be Well Now” instead of “Get Well Soon.”  Heh!

This isn’t like how you usually learn things in the world … usually you must practice like with football, basketball, skateboarding or learning an instrument you have to keep doing it over and over until it is learned.  “Be Well” … is instantaneous.  This is seeing there is Nothing To Learn … it takes no practice to “Be Well” you just Are It and that is seen when one is honest and not making excuses and is reporting from the moment they are In.  Even if you are physically sick (which is the body … not you and this is not about the body), you have the ability to “Be Well” to recognize beyond/before the body … that you Are Well.

“Be Well.”
