“Resistance is the force maintaining the personality you’ve been duped into believing is who you are.” – Cheri Huber
This recent email from Cheri was just too good and too deep to pass up the chance to keep it moving in the universe! She goes on to say, “The danger is that we see the whole process, but we continue to stay in the system. In other words, we fail to recognize that not only have we been wearing lenses, but the process by which we “see” is also part of the system. When we think we see clearly, it is still the ego-identity that is seeing “clearly.” So, yes, the lenses are off, but we have not yet dropped the process that creates and maintains the illusion that we are a “someone” seeing.
We’re meant to believe that “sometimes I’m identified, but most of the time I know what’s going on” That’s the lens—and that’s the process that keeps the lens in place! “You” don’t resist; the ego-identity illusion resists.
Removing that lens positions us to see the immensity of the fiction we’ve been living in. Waking up and ending suffering is the realization that there is no “someone” “doing” any of it, there’s only the process of the illusion of a separate self resisting Life.
This realization dissolves the Great Human Conundrum, the moral, spiritual, ethical puzzle confronting human beings for as long as there have been human beings asking that most profound of all questions: What??? What the heck is going on? How is this happening? How is it that I so consistently do not choose what I value and instead choose what I do not value? I want this and yet consistently do that. How are these decisions made? How is this possible?
You get the picture.
The simple, nearly incomprehensible, deeply unbelievable to conditioned mind answer to all those questions: What you think of as you, what you’re told is you, what you believe is you, what you refer to as you, is not “you.””
