David Spero - Foreground Mind Background Mind

There is no sense or accrual of self importance that goes along with becoming awakened. You don't become more and more important and self-important to yourself. You become subtle and therefore out of the range of your immediate attention. Something that follows you everywhere, is not really in the forefront of attention it's more the the background of consciousness. That's where you determine the depth of your transformation into consciousness, the depth to which your mind has merged back into it's source. In the background, not the foreground. The foreground can only see detail, limitation, limited things, the background holds things wide open, big, huge. So the teaching of techniques, et cetera, are all for the foreground mind. When you learn techniques and practices, they are all to teach the foreground attention something. Do this, don't do that. Practice this, practice it this way. When you are talking about direct emanation of the enlightened condition, you're always talking about the background. What is background to background. Background Mind to background mind. It sounds like crazy talk. See my foreground mind was listening to my background message and it said, "This is crazy". For a moment I evaluated what I was saying..."This doesn't sound right." And so you see how it's not for the foreground mind. It's almost like it's a secret. What I'm talking to you about secretive in nature and you actually grasp it in a secretive location. It's very subtle. I just want you to be aware that there are these two things going on at the same time. And I want you to learn about not just the things we talk about, but I want you to learn about who you are becoming way back there, deep inside. I'm interested in your foreground mind telling me once and a while what's happened in your background consciousness. Once and a while, we can't do it to much then we become trite, then we become mundane. It like chatting about enlightenment all the time, it will just become another topic. Like a candy store or politics.
