The Lucid Living Experience

Awaken Inner Peace, Tranquility, & Infinite Potential

1. Who And What Is "I AM"?

Before experience can happen YOU must be there FIRST in order to have the experience. Just who is this YOU that we call "I AM" that is always eternally present before experience? You do not need to think about this, nor remember who you are because YOU ARE ALREADY HERE NOW. YOU ARE ALREADY THE SELF! Start the self inquiry now by bringing your attention to what is here and now. Do this by simply relaxing your attention and observe what is around you calmly without effort. Let your attention rest.

Who and what is the YOU that is observing attention, or lack of attention, distraction, or lack of distraction, consciousness and unconsciousness? Who and what is the "I AM" that you call "yourself" that is aware of your experience? Can the seer be seen? Can the witness be witnessed? Can the observer be observed? THIS IS THE QUESTION! Take a moment to observe calmly without effort. Who and what are YOU the observer of experience? Do not go to thought to know thyself. The mind is observed by YOU. Go to the very SOURCE of what you call "YOURSELF" the knower of thoughts and experience. Who and what are YOU the knower of even knowledge? What is the content of THAT one?

Here is a hint. Are you conscious right now? If you answered "Yes" what experience did your attention go to in order to answer "Yes I am conscious", or "Yes I am aware"? In order to answer "Yes" our attention gradually sinks back into itself in order to know our seemingly underlying conscious presence. The question is what is this "I AM" conscious presence? Does consciousness have a shape, form, color, gender, boundaries, opinion, or any content that could be said about it whatsoever? No it doesn't!

If you believe that consciousness is generated by our brain then take a moment to observe your experience and try to find any evidence that we are living in a physical universe outside of your mind? There is no evidence that we are living in a physical universe outside our mind because everything we perceive as experience is an experience in our mind, and this mind (thoughts) is observed by us, and inside of us the conscious observer, which is not a thing, and which doesn't come, nor go.

Thoughts come and go you stay. Emotions come and go you stay. Sensations come and go you stay. When you enter deep sleep the body and environment comes and goes, but you stay. What we are never comes so we can never go. We are always timelessly here now. 

There is a presence that we call "I AM" which is not a thing; a boundless space in which all things are known. This space like presence is universal consciousness. Not the words universal consciousness, but THAT, to which the words are pointing to, and you are THAT space in which all apparent things and experiences are known, which is not a thing! I AM = Universal Presence = Everything = No-Thing!

2. All We Can Ever Know Is "I AM"!

Become conscious of being aware. Observe being consciously aware. Realize that the only thing you know about reality is your awareness of it. Is it possible to know anything outside of being aware, and if so who, or what will be aware of it? As you can see all we can ever really know is awareness, so it is actually impossible to be ignorant of awareness. Awareness is our first and only experience for outside of awareness we know nothing.

3. We Are Beyond The Concept Of Oneness!

Stop what you are doing and take a moment to observe your breath. We breathe in from the environment and breathe back into the environment. We eat from the environment and our waste goes back into the environment. We need an environment to walk on. We need sunlight, and gravity from the environment in order for our bodies to exist. Continue to observe closely as it slowly becomes evident that our body is one with the environment and in fact is the environment, which is the universe.

Now that you are seeing yourself as the universe at large, ask yourself how can you be a separate entity from anyone, or anything else? This identity that we believed ourselves to be as merely the body is a fraud. We are the universe. We are the moving "what is" being observed inside of us the still consciousness "what is". We are both the stillness and the apparent movement being perceived inside the stillness. The yin and the yang. The only thing that made us feel that we are separate from one another is our flawed believed thought that we are separate independent individuals. This is an illusion. You're it!

4. The Universe Is Mental!

If you believe the universe is a physical place try to find evidence of its physicality outside your mind. All senses are being perceived by our mind. Even the body, and human brain is a perception in our mind. So how do you know you're not dreaming this right now? In fact what is the difference between the dream world and the real world when both worlds appear as a perception in the same mind of us "I AM" consciousness?

Ever wonder why scientists cannot find this stuffed we are supposedly made up of called "matter"? It doesn't exist because we aren't living in a physical universe like we were told, but in a mental universe inside of us consciousness the great "I AM". This is why if we can see something in our mind we can manifest it in reality. We are living in the world of perception! Change your perception and you'll change your reality. Open the gates of perception now! This world is what we make it!

5. "I AM" Is Immortal!

Bring your attention back to being conscious of the experience of being aware. Observe your experience of being aware and see if awareness ever comes and goes? Can awareness come? No because without awareness there effectively is no experience. Can it go? No it cannot go because it never came, and even if it did manage to go who would be aware of its absence?

Awareness does not come so too it cannot go. What has no beginning has no end. We cannot have an experience of non-being because that is not an experience; therefore, awareness itself is the very source of life, and life by definition cannot die. We don't have a life. WE ARE LIFE! We the "I AM" are the very source of life itself, and this "I AM" that we are is immortal because the experience of being aware never comes and goes, and has no beginning, nor end.

6. Now Is The Only True Time!

Take a moment to observe "what is" and try to find an event to occurs outside of the "here and now". Is it possible for anything to occur outside of now? No! The time of any particular event is always now. Our memories of the past, and thoughts of the present, and future appear in our mind in the now. Nothing escapes the now. The past, present, and future are all mental concepts in the mind, but don't actually exist in the real world. In the real world the time is always now. So why not now?

7. The Lucid Limitless Power Of Now!

Take a moment to focus on your breath and let your mind calm itself without any effort on your behalf. Keep your attention firmly on the here and now, but do so relaxingly. In this state when thoughts of doubt are no longer able to distract you from accomplishing your goal you are limitless. The only thing preventing us from awakening our true potential is our thoughts and beliefs. When our thinking mind is on all kinds of doubts begin to surface holding us back from our true potential, but when we let our mind dissolve into its source "I AM" consciousness, all our limitless potential is reawakened and at our disposal.

Our limitless potential fully awakens when we are fully immersed in the here and now and identify only as the aware presence that is aware of our experience that we call "I AM", and surrender fully to ourselves the "I AM" to manifest what we want through our body, heart, and mind NOT by the body, heart, and mind. When we surrender to "I AM" consciousness in the here and now without commentary from our mind consciousness manifests what we desire for us through our avatar creating of desired outcome in our reality.

8. "I AM" Is Universal & Impersonal!

Observe being consciously aware of being aware and look to see if you can find any observable content about consciousness. Observe "I AM" consciousness closely and realize that there is no content to be found. Since consciousness is not a thing, or an object, thought, emotion, or sensation that can be witnessed, or observed means that consciousness is not a person. Consciousness is impersonal, which means it is everywhere and everyone all at the same time in the same place called here and now. The "ALL" is perceived inside the "I AM" presence. We know this to be true because we are aware of what we are experiencing; therefore, "experience" always occurs within awareness NOT outside of awareness simply because if experience was outside of awareness we wouldn't be aware of it. What is in awareness is made up of awareness just as what appears on your screen is made up of the screen. The "I AM" that is me is the same "I AM" that is you! I AM IS ALL THAT EXISTS!

9. "I AM" Is All Knowing & All Seeing!

Let your body mind relax totally as you keep your attention focused on "what is" and being conscious of being aware. As your body mind relaxes observe the feeling of separation begin to dissolve. Are you able to observe your conscious presence everywhere? Consciousness is "I AM", which is the universal presence of being aware. Consciousness sees all and knows all because consciousness is every "I AM" that exists because we experience all of existence as a perception inside of consciousness the great "I AM".

0. Grand Conclusion Of Knowing "I AM"!

"I AM" is God source awareness. "I AM" is both everything and no-thing. The alpha and omega. The yin and the yang and you are it! If this self inquiry has guided you and helped you to know yourself then I welcome you to the lucid living experience!
