Friends Talk with Douglas

Welcome to Friends Talk.

Friends Talk is an open blog that welcomes interaction not only with Friends of One members, but also with anyone who is seeking to know and understand why we are here in this world and learn to recognize that we live in a world that is dominated by lies and ignorance that denies happiness and the freedom to be what we are, which is Pure Consciousness free from fear and limitation.


I am Pure Consciousness

Very little of the truth has ever been disclosed by those who have known or realized it. How difficult would it be to understand how such disclosure affects the human consciousness, which is constantly locked in illusion and ignorance of what is?

It is more difficult to find words that can describe an inner state such as the Truth which has no outer reality.

World knowledge abounds with conceptual and sensual knowledge which is often thought of as inner knowledge, however, such knowledge is illusional and controlled by the mind and based on thoughts, memories, and emotional reactions. Such knowledge is based on dualities and is the mind’s attempt to apply reason and desire to create an outcome.

Everything revolves around the creation of the world and universe which is perceived by the senses that is activated by the mind which classifies it as knowledge.

We then think we live in a world filled with objects and forms that are all separated by space. We then believe that we have a separate body through its consciousness and make it a realization by giving it a name, which in turn names everything it perceives sensually.

By naming everything we create the conditions of missing out on understanding the truth beyond the form which is nameless and pure consciousness.

As you can see by naming everything we perceive in the world, that naming process actually makes our world an illusion, and all can be traced back to the story that Moses wrote called Genesis, which is based on fantasy and fable.

Why do we accept a fable when we know the truth? The Truth is closer to us than anything else, and it is only through our ignorance that we are not aware of this.

We prefer to lie in ignorance; pain and suffering; insecurity, and being anxious and depressed. We put up with all the problems of life allowing them to dominate our thinking, yet we try and seek joy and happiness through relationships and accumulating possessions, believing that this will improve our lives. 

Why do you think you have a life when it is only existence, a living dream where you think you are awake and doing things?

Although you dream at night when you are asleep, on awakening you do not have a perfect memory of the content of the dream, because when dreaming your body’s mind is not active, but in that dream, everything happens from your memories.

There is no difference between your waking dream and your sleep dream, and you pass off your dream as not being a reality like your awake dream. 

The Truth which is the only reality is much different from the illusional reality you think is real, because you think that you exist as a body.

If it is all illusion it only appears in your mind as a thought that opens out before you and disappears when you go to sleep.

So where is the Truth?
