Relying on What Works

Why not check out a broader experience of what it means to be human? Why not learn about yourself in a fresh way rather than the tired ways that have never brought about happiness, that have never brought about the release of the tremendous energy within you that contribute your strengths, gifts and talents? What is the point in continuing to rely on what doesn’t work? What works is for human beings to feel that ease in life and to feel empowered to act in beneficial ways. That is what works!

 

Stability of Open Intelligence

By the power of simply resting as open intelligence, we are no longer engulfed by the hustle and bustle of the compulsive trivia of data. Rather, the monumental stability of open intelligence is our comfort, identity and home. Its protection is indestructible and cannot be swayed. The stability of indestructible open intelligence is what we come to rely on in all of our affairs; it never fails us.

Identifying With Open Intelligence

Your own data, are the perfect opportunity for gaining confidence in open intelligence. If other people understand what you’re doing—or not—it really doesn’t matter, because open intelligence itself needs to be what you’re identifying with, rather than identifying with other people’s opinions to get juice for feeling okay. If you put your trust in open intelligence rather than the flapping jaws of descriptions, then you’ll be okay, no matter what comes up.

Understanding The Purpose of Life

If you gain confidence in open intelligence, all your concerns about money, food, sex, shelter, clothing, work, every other concern you might have will resolve in the bright light of open intelligence. You’ll find something really incredible: you will find that you have never had to worry about any of these things. Your worry and concern, your valiant attempts to try to get all these things into your life were secondary at best; these are really not the place to invest your time or energy when it comes to understanding human life or understanding the purpose of human life and the potential of your own body and mind.

Gaining Confidence in Open Intelligence

Through the practice of short moments our experience is gathered up into the actual instinctive realization of open intelligence. This is similar to a great fog evaporating in the bright sun. If there’s a great fog that’s hanging over the coast, it gradually evaporates as the heat of the sun gets brighter and brighter and the winds move in a certain way. So too, it is with gaining confidence in open intelligence.

Gaining Confidence in Open Intelligence

The way that one hundred percent commitment shows up is in short moments many times. It can’t be contrived, so there is no way to push yourself into open intelligence by forcing yourself to be aware for long and contrived periods of time. The only way to really gain confidence in open intelligence is through uncontrived short moments. Through this one hundred percent commitment confidence comes about.

Familiarization With Open Intelligence

Once the introduction to open intelligence has taken place, in other words, open intelligence has been identified as the source of one’s experience, then to gain confidence in open intelligence requires familiarization with it. When it’s been ignored as the source of one’s own experience, then there’s no familiarity with it.

Abide as Open Intelligence

No matter what you are up to: your relationships, your work or wherever else you looked in data to find comfort, satisfaction and fulfillment, just let it all be as it is and cling to open intelligence above all else. That doesn’t mean clinging to open intelligence like some needy little wimp, but to abide as open intelligence and identify with the super-power of your own nature. Identify as the super-intelligence of your own being, and stop wimping out with all your beliefs in data.

The Hell Realm of Data

If you bore into that hole of data, then everywhere you look, all you will see are data—data about yourself, data about everybody else and data about the world you live in. You’ll live in a hell realm of data. It’s a reality hole that you yourself choose, but it does not have a basis in actuality. By just maintaining open intelligence, you immediately challenge your belief in any datum you’ve ever believed in, no matter what it is, big or small.

Abide As Open Intelligence

No matter what you are up to: your relationships, your work or wherever else you looked in data to find comfort, satisfaction and fulfillment, just let it all be as it is and cling to open intelligence above all else. That doesn’t mean clinging to open intelligence like some needy little wimp, but to abide as open intelligence and identify with the super-power of your own nature. Identify as the super-intelligence of your own being, and stop wimping out with all your beliefs in data.
