BEYOND CONCEPTS

JOHN MCINTOSH The false-mind-identity cannot be ‘involved’ in the Grand Dream and ‘also’ be the ‘witness’ of it in the same moment … the body can be an ‘actor’ on this stage, but if one’s awareness is consciously observing this illusion, it is NOT participating … residual momentum is doing the acting. When Attention oc

CAN YOU?

JOHN MCINTOSH Can ‘you disappear … entirely? Can this sense of “I” dissolve totally? Can this longing to ‘be’ somebody, to leave behind some special world changing legacy that will erect monuments to your name … just fall away? These are the kinds of authentic questions you must ask yourself … and answer truthfully bef

NO GODS BUT 'YOU'

JOHN MCINTOSH It is common to hear things like: “The universe hears you”, or “The universe is sending you guidance or support”, however this is not what is occurring. YOU are the source ‘of’ the universe or universal dream and it is happening ‘in’ YOU. YOU ‘as’ Consciousness have stepped into the instrument called your

BEING THE SPACE

JOHN MCINTOSH Being the space that allows ALL to simply ‘be as it is’ returns Awareness [not ‘your’ awareness … just Awareness, which is Who You Really Are] to ITs natural state of emptiness. IT/YOU has never left this state but has ventured into the ‘objective world’ of contrast where dreams flourish. This ‘blank-scre

STORIES AND DRAMAS

JOHN MCINTOSH The Grand Dream is an unbroken stream of stories wrapped in drama. To the false self, the wider the arc of this pendulum the better. The false self lives in perpetual fear and insecurity of ‘what’s next?’ and yet like a moth to the flame craves the excitement of it. This pale impostor masquerading as YOU

REMEMBER

JOHN MCINTOSH You are God – the SELF … you have just forgotten like displacing your glasses while they rest on your head. And in your blurry vision you have believed that your life is very small. All around you there are supporters who verify the dimness of your seeing, lost in the haze of limitation as they are. The o

THE DREAM UNDRESSING

JOHN MCINTOSH Yesterday I was speaking with my partner on the other side of the world in Australia on messenger-video [space]. Behind her was a television on which I was speaking on last week’s Q&A Online [time]. As she faced me on my laptop screen, reflected on her glasses was me on her cell phone while we talked. The

LOSING YOURSELF

JOHN MCINTOSH Losing yourself in something like a glorious sunset, a beautiful flower or an exquisite piece of music literally means to ‘die’ to the false self in that moment. This experience is Being the SELF, which emerges ‘out of’ rather than ‘into’ IT SELF … as the obstruction called a ‘person’ disappears. What is

LOVE REMAINS

JOHN MCINTOSH There is a flame that never dies A raging fire Then the bare essence of a spark Yet Life is there The twisted eye of ego Cannot extinguish this flame No matter how skewed its view The fire will never go out It is the rising Sun of Love That ascends only to fade Into twilight’s shadows Still, there is life

THE ILLUSION HAS NO POWER

JOHN MCINTOSH It is in the nature of the false self to be selfish. It feels alone and isolated, even in crowds. Fear underpins its every choice even if it has manifested all its dreams. Suspicion colors its happiness and magnifies its sorrow. To it, everything and everyone is an opponent at best and an arch enemy at wo

ALREADY HOME

JOHN MCINTOSH The universe/world along with the body-mind-identity most call ‘me’ are illusions or dreams. When the illusion is transcended, meaning that which seems to cause the projection of it on the screen of consciousness [the SELF You Are] … ‘conditioning’, has dissolved … what remains is What has always BEEN.

THE GRAND PERFORMANCE

JOHN MCINTOSH The SELF is always ‘in the moment’, Real, Pure and Perfect since nothing of the Grand Dream ‘sticks’ to IT to manifest a ‘script’ for ITs behaviour while it occupies a body. On a grander scale, the body as well as the entire universe is actually ‘within’ the SELF because IT is Consciousness and the Grand

IN PLAIN SIGHT

JOHN MCINTOSH When the dysfunction of the false self is exposed, as occurs at the end of an era such as now [the end of the Divine Masculine dominance], at first it is in huge denial, followed by defensiveness as has been the case for a few decades now. Finally, as its reign of tyranny comes to a close and it can no lo

NO RIGHT WAY

JOHN MCINTOSH There is no ‘right’ way to approach Truth. No special postures or diets, no meditations or disciplines, no mantras or chants, no cell or DNA activations or special dispensations from other dimensions or star systems … nothing of any description places you on some ‘right’ path. Where you find yourself at t

THE SWINGING PENDULUM

JOHN MCINTOSH The SELF, manifested as the illusory universe/world … is ONE, yet ‘appears as’ many experiencing ‘every’ possibility in order to ‘know’ IT SELF. Fully Aware of IT SELF there is no possibility of judgment but while IT sleeps to this Awareness, with the infinite identities it wears, there is widespread judg

LIVING CONSCIOUSLY

JOHN MCINTOSH Living Consciously is NOT about ‘you’, that is, it is NOT about an individual person called ‘you’ becoming Free. It is common to hear spiritually oriented people speak about ‘themselves’ as being ‘this or that’. The SELF, which is ONE appearing as many has no ‘add-ons’. IT does not have a personality. IT
