Relax Out Of Un-Innocence, January 16, 2010

David: So, if you want to see what it’s all about you transcend hesitancy and doubt and fear. You can’t say positively what that is that you will see. It’s simply what is always been there minus the overlay of doubt and fear and self-worry, self-contraction, non-innocence.

So, I’m always here to relax you out of your un-innocent approach, that’s my specialty. How do I do that? I do that by magnifying what has been realized within me. The word “within” here is problematic, I warn you, because it’s that clear light field that I am talking about that has somehow birthed its own intensity around and in, perhaps through, above, and beyond this body-mind.

Now we’re going to have problems with language. Now we’re also going to find out, you know, what is this. We’re going to want to find out “What is this David? What is this?” And the only answer I can give to you that’s honest and accurate is “Come into it with me.” Let me bewitch you into all the wrong belief systems and then bewitch you out of them so that these false occurrences can come and go from your mind and you’d be called back to an innocent apprehension of what is.

We’re going to doubt even the existence of a perceiver in this teaching. We’re not going to get sucked into the assumption that there even is a perceiver. This is very dangerous and very radical now, very dangerous. You can sense danger in it because there’s nothing customary about it. There’s nothing status quo or to be taken for granted. What you’re being invited to is simply live at the edge of your mind, at the edge of your existence, and for that, there must be passion. There must be attentiveness. There must be sincerity.

Participant 1: Curiosity?

David: No

P1: No?

David: No curiosity, that belongs to religion. They’re the curious ones. Then they invent the theories. Good try though.

P1: Openness.

David: No, nothing you say from that state will be it.

Participant 2: Honesty, when you’re really honest about where you’re at.

David: Whatever it is there’s no choice involved. You can’t even flatter yourself and say, “God, I’m so honest. God, I must be incredibly honest to be up here to do this. It’s just as necessary for you to be as you are as it is to breathe and you can’t be otherwise, and there’s a kind of fundamental sanity in that. That’s how you know it’s the truth, how you know it’s the real, how you know it’s the one, is because not only is there no choice involved but you couldn’t imagine yourself being any other way. And you know also all those voices, the religious voices, the teachers and the gurus are always missing the point including this one, that there’s a kind of falsity that is both part of this process and that must be confronted and transcended.
