      What is Be-ing?

      This may sound simplistic, but the more you contemplate, the more potential answers you can generate for this, which can be fun.

      The state of being is noticed by many spiritual practitioners as a foundation for realizing more of one's personality or nature. But the word "be-ing" implies some sort of verb, some sort of doing. So I was wondering, is really possible to just be, without doing anything else, including noticing it? Is it really the purest state there is? At first glance, the act of being doesn't sound very thrilling, exciting, or fulfilling. But on the other hand, is there anything more fulfilling? To "be" to such an extent that there is no sense of needing to "do." What do you call it, ecstasy, maybe?

      I've been in that "just be" state a few times. The thing is, you don't notice you were there until you come out of it, because while you’re there, there is nothing – no thoughts buzzing across your awareness, fighting for attention, no bodily sensations to distract or offer a sense of the passage of time - a minute is an hour is a second. It’s really quite amazing – the polar opposite to our usual functioning state of awareness - but I don't think I'd call it ecstacy.

      I don't know about it being the purest state there is, but it is definitely a worthwhile perspective -- to observe without thought and without judgment. I've found it very relaxing and refreshing, putting the little worries and troubles of life back into their proper perspective as you back off and back away from being so caught up in the moment that the minutia flood your mind and fill it with needless anxiety. It usually takes me a good half hour to get to that point, which is why I don’t do it all that often, but I’d suggest you give it a try yourself.

      My personal view is that interpretation of experiences are important. One event can have completely different meanings to different people, and when one is in a "just be", purely observational state, one misses the opportunity to interpret and find personal meaning. I think there are definitely times when it is advantageous to back away from a purely egoistical experience as well, but I don't believe the human experience is complete if one dwells entirely in one or the other states of awareness.

      Being

      Being…
      From the opening of one’s eye’s at birth there is a unique opportunity to be a perfected being. A being with all God given abilities manifested. There are laws, and truths which man has purposefully over looked. Truths, which place (him) in a realm of authority over “all things” yes, all things! weather seen, or unseen.

      But, because of the physical nature of the “hued” mind, Man has abandoned (his) true nature, “to walk within two worlds at once!” “What”? Yes man is a multi-dimensional creature, with supernatural abilities, far beyond that which he “sees’”. Man has been give the power to create just has (his) Father does.

      Over 2000 years ago the last “Adam” (The Carnal Man) was born, lived, and died, and brought all of the “Adamic race “ with (Him) in his death. So, all of the “old” man is no longer what lives today, but a new kind of Man now walks the Earth. Those who are walking in the spirit know who they are, and what they are here for.

      There are many parts of this “new creation Man’s” body; He has hands, arms, legs, and so on. But the one part of (His) body which we must be in tune with is (His) head, which includes (His) heart,(He) is The Head of all things. And, with the head functioning throughout the whole of the body, the parts function as they should, at many levels at once. Seen, and unseen, lacking nothing.

      Think of it, all of creation functioning as it was created to function. The only thing which stand in the way of these things being reality is” Belief”. Man would rather believe a lie. This allows them, off the hook in their mind. If we know that there is a provision made to walk in this reality, why does the nature of man “which was destroyed” still have an illegal hold on this reality?

      There is only one thing separating us from this realm, Belief! You are what you believe you are? Not! That is not what God says of you. You are more than what you think you are. You are what (He) says you are. And there will come the day when you will be seen as you are. You will be known, as you are known, of (Him.) But when will that be? God says this of you today!

      What does that mean? Who is the servant. Who is the man?
      Perception means more than seeing. It means sensing.

      Just a humorous way of reveling that not all can perceive in the same way, therefore being must be much more that one’s limited perceptions.

      It is just a different view of what most people perceive as “perception”
      For insists the perceived abilities of the two men stated in the prior post.
      Not all perception is the same, therefore can’t be the bases of being in every applied insist.
