Lesson 8: The Mind & True Being

by archangel Michael

I greet you, my dear friends! You are capable of many things, that you may not be able to understand at this time, because in human life, the role of the mind is rated very high. Many humans see the mind as the absolute truth, as that, what counts, as that, what is the most important for life on earth. Well, this mind is definitely something that is very useful for you, which allows you to do many things and does a lot of work for you in this life. But the mind is not that, what you are, even though your mind often tells you so. But the mind can err very often, and you all have experienced that you can err. Then the question should be raised: Why do you even listen to the mind? But the way human life is, the mind is something that continuously influences you, continuously works, continuously questions everything – including that, what is happening right now, is being questioned: How can this channeling happen? Just as you cannot see spirit beings with your physical eyes, but somewhere deep inside you know that there are spirit beings, otherwise you would not be at this place at this time reading this. A while ago, your mind would have convinced you to do something else at this time. I do not want to leave the impression that the mind is something negative, because it is not – instead, the mind is a tool, like many others. But the mind is not the true being, just as your physical body is not your true being. Your physical body is one aspect of your being, a part of your being, but primarily a tool. That, which is your true being, is not easily put into words, because it is the being in itself. Being can only be experienced, you can only be “being”, it cannot be described by words. This is something that works only through consciousness. However, consciousness is a broad term, many may think, that it is the same as the mind, but that is not so. The mind is something that keeps talking in your head and bombards you with words, thoughts, questions, opinions – keeps wondering, analyzing and trying to understand and grasp things. All these are abilities a human being should have. But these abilities should not be, I would say, overvalued. The actual “being” can only be experienced through the consciousness. Only when you go above the mind into the consciousness of being, the consciousness of your soul – and this is not something you can just simply decide to do – because this is a process, a growing into, a rising up above the level of your mind, which with all its powers will try to prevent this. This mind will provide you with so much doubt, that after a few attempts to get to your consciousness state you may be very apt to give up, and you may think it is all just nonsense. But especially then it is important to realize what the mind really is, that the mind is doing its best, but the mind is not your true self, that the mind is a tool. This tool should be put aside at such times. Of course, this may be easier said than done. One way to achieve this is by observing this chat in your head, just to observe what happens there. When you do this, you are elevating yourself to a higher level, above the mind, because this observation can only work, when you stand above the mind. Do this in love! Do this in the awareness that you are light, that you have light within you, that the light comes from your heart. In the awareness of this love you calm your mind for some time and enable to elevate yourself to experience the true self, to get closer to it and enter into this level of consciousness. I spoke about “growing into” but these are not quite the right words, because a “growing into” would be getting into areas that are not a apart of you, or that do not exist yet – but it is rather an entering into these areas, because your higher consciousness is already in existence. It is rather a widening of the area that you can perceive at this time, and gaining access to other levels of your being, going with your active awareness into the higher levels of being, into the higher self, the true self – that, which is the core of your soul. This is a very important exercise, an important task, especially in these times. I’m not telling you all this to waste time, but it is in this phase that you have entered an important step to find your true self. It will not work through the mind, it will not work through knowledge, through collecting facts. You can read as many books as you want, visit many seminars, travel far – to the other side of earth – to visit some teaching masters – – – but you will not find the true self by going far away, by reading books, through knowledge, or through the mind. You can only find the true self through yourself, by rising above the level of your mind, widening your awareness into areas, that are still hidden. This is an exercise which requires effort, but making an effort is part of being human. As you live in these times, it is your job, your task, to prepare yourself and to grow. Especially because you live in this important phase of mankind, it is necessary that you make an effort to reach this goal, which is not as far away as you may think. This goal is not somewhere high up, somewhere far away – it is within reach, in immediate reach, because you have it within you, you are your higher self. However, right now your awareness may not be in those areas. Now is the time to open up to those areas, to find access to your higher self this way, to your true self. This situation can be compared to being an actor on stage, and now is the time to stop what you are doing and to remember and to realize that you are not what you are pretending, acting, to be, but that in your core you are something different than what you are acting to be on the stage of life, as an incarnated soul. Of course, you are human and you have accepted an important role. However, this role is just a role, not your true self. Now is the time to remember this. Greetings and blessings to you! Amen. Amen. Amen.
