. . . and if you give some managers an inch they think they're a ruler. Anyway, eight inches is far better, although it's not all about size . . .

      You Can substitute the word 'manager' for another if you so choose, it works for most people in most roles in life because, let's face it, most people are completely individuated in their mindset, and therefore they see everything from an individual perspective - it can be no other way. But that's okay, the secret (if there is one) is in the seeing of all this.

  Pure anarchy is something the person-individual does not know or understand at all, it is however what exists for the wo/man discovering Genba. The need to 'be in control' will either instantly or gradually begin to dissipate, and what remains is what is. What is, whatever that may be, is seen therefore to be as it is meant to be . . . otherwise it would be different. Change, being the only constant, is going to unfold anyway, so what's the point of being unhappy about what is?

The person hates the very thought of all this, and even if it thinks it doesn't hate it, it is looking to make use of this material rather than simply be.

Simply being is not something an individual/personality can do - how could they when the person is an add on, simply a game of tag within the play of life? Therefore the person will hold on to their 'ality' with fingers of grim death rather than simply be. In fact, when the individual personality discovers ideas such as enlightenment and liberation it goes in search of them to gain something for itself, thinking there's something to be had here, but there isn't, quite the opposite in fact...

Pure anarchy, Genba and/or being is rather beautiful, but it comes with a price, have you worked out what that price is yet?

You might think of someone as square who is actually well rounded.

The conditioned mindset of the individual personality can not identify any difference between itself and the non-mindset of a pure anarchist. The pure anarchist has discovered Genba, the real place, which is no place at all, and is no longer dominated by the personality alone - yes, they still have a personality (how could it be otherwise?), but they have also discovered something all encompassing (thus also encompassing the personality). It follows then that....

It's not that there is no such thing as
there is,
it's just that it isn't personal.

After liberation
Life still goes on,
as before.
   There can be indignation when dealing with persons whom are lost within their small conditioned life of attitudes, beliefs and opinions, those whom would impose such nonsense upon others with no idea how small minded it all is . . . but hey, look, even that's okay - it's what is; so don't be surprised if one day a pure anarchist tells you to fuck-off, s/he isn't being personal, it's just that they can see straight through you, and they really don't need your particular line in individuated bullshit.

The fact is that there is no such thing as personal enlightenment; it's a fallacy, a notional idea created by a mindset that's looking-searching for the unattainable . . . 

. . but when liberation comes it will be the death of you.
The end of individuation as a way of life.

So you, as a person, can not become enlightened or liberated - what would you,
as an individuated personality,
become liberated from,

The only Freedom 
freedom from the unreal, 
the unreal 
the individual, 
the person 
the personal.

The personality will also see what I've just written as arrogant and egotistical, and that is logical enough as that is it's own nature, it will also want to do a runner asap from all this, and in so doing point the finger of blame elsewhere haha - such is its wisdom!

Wisdom? The person, being a a gathering of 'Past Living' (and nothing more), can NOT know what wisdom is. Wisdom, all of it, like intuition, is rooted deeper within . . . within Genba. 

Genba is One, it is what one is, and even with all the add-ons, eventually the realisation is that there is only one and that one is everything and everyone all at Once....

. . . as for rulers, 
those whom think they can control One
well good luck with that One . . .

That's about the size of it!

     . . . it was at this point that a skunk walked in, and the judge said, 'odour in the court'!! Well obviously he wasn't wrong, and how the jury laughed, but that's where the similarity ends really. No, really it does, after all most people like to be both the judge and jury . . .

     Bad Smells. Not that we need to judge the smell, but nonetheless, as a figure of speech, bad smells, the notion of the person being both judge and jury. And whom are they judging? Usually some other poor soul who is only doing their best to get by in the world . . . that's the nature of the personality. But that's just my opinion, right?

The personality knows only opinion. That's its judging mechanism my friend, opinion. That and belief - not forgetting attitude, which I didn't. Therefore, the personality, knowing only attitude, belief and opinion garnished over a lifetime of conditioning, knows nothing but its own smell, well how could it know otherwise . . . seriously? Exactly, we don't know what we don't know, and all the person/personality knows is its own conditioned attitudes, beliefs and opinions. Unfortunately, the personality is, in 99.9% of the population, dominant.

Did I say unfortunately? Yes I did, but it's neither fortunate nor unfortunate, it is simply a fact. And that is the difference. The personality, including yours, is unreliable, totally and utterly - unreliable. How could it be otherwise when all it has to base its knowledge (attitudes, beliefs and opinions) on is a conditioned mindset?

The difference? Between what exactly? The difference between the conditioned mindset of the personality and . . .

. . do you remember Genba, the real place (which is no place at all)? Well if not you can read backwards for a spell and catch up!

If actions speak louder than words then why can't you hear mime artists?

My own personality is wonderfully spiky, to the point where it can prickle with effortless ease, it knows how to rub you up the wrong way - but thankfully there are times when one see's the personality in action and in the seeing of it one instantly becomes free of it; it really is effortless, but only when it is! At other times, once my feathers are ruffled, well . . .

I've got a grapefruit matter
It's as sour as shit
I have no solutions
Better get used to it
I don't need a ship to sail in stormy weather
I don't need you to ruffle the feathers - on my Peacock Suit
I'm Narcissus in a puddle
In shop windows I gloat
Like a ball of fleece lining
In my camel skin coat

I don't need a ship to sail in stormy weather
I don't need you to ruffle the feathers - on my Peacock Suit
Did you think I should

Nemesis in a muddle
In a mirror I look
Like a streak of sheet lightnin'
In my rattlesnake shoes -

I don't need a ship to sail in stormy weather
I don't need you to ruffle the feathers - of my Peacock Suit
Did you think I should . . .

     That kinda sums up the workings of the personality. One on the other hand is free from such liabilities, but only when there are no ruffled feathers.

Back to bad smells and all that. When we judge another we do so from our conditioning, in other words it's a conditioned reaction - we see things in a particular way based on how we've been conditioned to think, and thus what we believe is right and wrong . . .

Is there an alternative? Not for the personality, no - it only knows its attitudes, beliefs and opinions, clearly. The alternative would require one  to simply be, which is of course the original place, the place one comes from, which is no place at all . . .

              Let's be dead straight here.
                                              I'm a very ordinary guy and I have nothing to offer you, nothing at all. There's nothing up for grabs here. There's more . . .

Who is Doug McMillan? No one in particular, but then again . . . nor are you, although you may think you are. Then again, you may think otherwise, it matters not.

Things are not what they seem. Existence . . and all that, it's not what it appears to be, although it is an appearance. The writer of this material is, apparently, Doug McMillan . . and that is part of the appearance.

There is no Guru or teacher or teaching here - nothing. The 'ordinary' isn't even available here, and certainly there's nothing that could be classed as extraordinary - honestly.

So Doug McMillan, who is he, and who are you? Is there any difference between the two, me and you? Is there even a me, is there really a you . . . beyond some sort of mental construct? Hmmm...

Two realities collide here - in existence - but ironically . . . only one is real, which is it?

Two realities. What are they?

Before one can ask which of two realities is real one has to be able to identify the two realities, yes?

Maybe, but maybe not. The nature of this communication is mostly energetic and has nothing whatsoever to do with Doug McMillan or the reader as a personal entity.

That was a clue.

The roulette dealer had a unique personality. 
He had a different spin on everything.

The personal, which is a personal identity, a person with an individuated personality - that is one seeming reality, isn't it? It's one we all tend to believe in, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that identification. In fact there is nothing right or wrong here, nothing to like and nothing to dislike, nothing for you to love or hate - unless the person reading this chooses that option.

Honesty? Yes. This is an honest communication because it has a source of integrity. Integrity precedes honesty - integrity being that place we spoke of in our last post, Genba, remember? The real place is already integrated, whole and complete.

You'll no doubt recall that the real place is no place at all. The real place, doesn't exist in you, or me, or in the sky, the stars or  . . .

. . and yet it is all of that and more - the real place is all encompassing.

     Looking once more at honesty . . . one is an expression of Integrity, and there is only one, one is the real place. When one becomes two, three, four . . . infinitum - there's a splintering. A splinter group is formed - and that is the individuated personality.

Two fonts, Arial and Calibri, were in the midst of a bad breakup. 
Calibri said, 'I'm sorry, you're personality is too bold.' 
Arial responded, 'You're just not my type...'

We all experience existence through the individuated personality, although we didn't always do so, certainly at birth we didn't. Of course over time, since birth, the personality formed within each of us as layers of conditioning. And this layered conditioning, the individuated personality, was developing ( yes,one layer at a time) until there came a point when all you (and I) could relate to was . . . ?

That's right, it was (and still is) an incredibly insidious process, whereby the individuated personality completely masks the real (or true) nature of mankind, which is of course that which is covered over by all those years of layered conditioning - the individuated personality.

What is dishonest then? What is not real, not true - not the truth? If you've grasped this message you will already have your answer.

What is the cause of all conflict and unhappiness? The answer to all these questions has already been expressed in this Blog post.

What is honest, real and true? What is the truth, if there is a truth?

The real place, Genba (for want of no name whatsoever), is not individuated or personal. In fact the personality, being unreal, can not come to know it.

Two realities? Yes and no. One reality is false, the other reality is the real place - and no amount of seeking by an individuated person (you and I) can discover that which it is not.

One reality (the false one) is sitting on top of the other (the real place).

   Mankind lives life through the personality, and the personalities expression in existence is mankind's world, which in turn sits on top of the earth in the same way that the individuated personality sits on top of the real place . . . which is of course no place at all.

Each of us came out of the real place into existence, but we brought it with us, we didn't leave it behind, how could we, it's what you and I are? It's what everything (and nothing) is; yes, it is all encompassing.

What you think you are is simply hardened layers of conditioning, which is the individuated personality - but you also have moments of freedom from all that conditioning, don't you? We all do. One of these realities is wonderful, the other is a spoiler. The life we live is a mix of these two realities, and the only thing that can destroy the wonder of life is that reality which is no reality at all.

One could go on, but that's enough Honesty for now.
