It is for this reason that all original teachings have ceased to be a conduit for enlightenment and have, instead, become mere reflections in the distorted mirrors of cultural lexicons. Here, countless critical concepts are laid waste by the linguistic transpositions of meanings. This unfortunate distortion is compounded by the meaning of words that are presumed to be obvious and, therefore, require no further thought. Some examples contemplated in this work are "emotions/feelings," "consciousness/awareness,"conscious and UN-conscious," and so forth. Indeed, it is little wonder that we live in the age of "babble," and it is less wonder that the counterfeit-hierarchy not only exploits the confusion of words, but are the progenitors of deceit by interpretation to further an agenda. And while many of our age feel secure that so-called "science" has saved us from such confusion, by claiming to be the great clarifiers of objective truth, the fact remains that they are also part of the problem.
With that said, let us now contemplate a very common, yet extremely perplexing concept passed down through many ancient religious/philosophical teachings. It is the concept/words for "nothingness," "thoughtlessness," "no-thought," "void," and so forth. And although many would find the use of these word/concepts to build an entire cultural philosophy/teaching/religion as absurd and incomprehensible, the fact remains that they wield great power to confuse, enslave, and mislead through the simple assumption that the meanings of the words used are truly understood. Thus, what had been assumed for decades as an obvious meaning of a few words was shattered in a few sentences in the book, which simultaneously opened new doors of understanding while also creating a great intellectual impasse. So the entity in question submitted a query, asking for clarification on the assumed concept of "nothing,"—once accepted as an obvious meaning, but now surfacing in the mind like a great and troubling paradox, potentially destroying a lifetime of beliefs.
The following is my response to such a query submitted by a fellow truth-seeker, evoked during the studying The Genius Frequency work, and addressing the very large body of teachings by many illustrious gurus on how to attain enlightenment:
The gurus and philosophers you cited are brilliant souls, great teachers in their own right, and their contributions to our respective journeys are priceless in many ways. In fact their work lives on in the archival mind of all humans, even if many do not experience them and many other true teachings directly. Clearly, this is a question of resonance, indicating the continuity of one's past-lives. In The Genius Frequency work you may remember the contemplation of a biological truth (phylogeny recapitulates ontogeny) which explains the material continuity of past-life experiences. Therefore, the teachers you "naturally" resonate with in this life are a recapitulation of your previous seeking. In this life we retrace those levels of awakening in order to take the next step so as not to simply relive the past.
In order to remain free of past repetition in this timeline, it is important to ask WHY? Not What? those teachers were expressing. In other words, your astute observations uncovered a discrepancy, a paradox, regarding the concepts of "thoughtlessness," "void," "nothingness,"' and so forth. However, it is not wise to take such expressions of wisdom out of context (out of time) and apply them to this timeline. The TGF work is designed to transcend the linguistic traps that ensnare the intellect's altered-ego. Clearly, the words, themselves, are paradoxical. For how can "something" declare that there is "nothing?" Or that an "illusion" can fathom the idea of a "void?" Or that transcendental enlightenment is the realization of "nothing?" And so forth, like paradoxical planets orbiting a transcendental sun.
These hopeless, un-resolvable paradoxes and conundrums are the EFFECTS of "WORDS," and not Universal Truth, which they are feebly attempting to codify in the 4th dimensional abstract world of 3D thought-forms. Now, given that we live in an age of personality cults, great teachers are laid waste by the babbling tongues of corrupt human languages (the intellect) that are built upon polarized, opposing duality. Thus, when we ask WHY the great teachers chose to use certain word/concepts, rather than WHAT those words mean in our timeline, we resonate with the ESSENCE, the core of a Truth far beyond the ability of any corrupted language to articulate.
For example: In our current timeline, we only assume that we know the meaning of the words "nothingness" or "thoughtlessness" by which we then make gross, even absurd logical leaps when interpreting a master teaching, while libraries swell with twisted commentaries and corrupted conclusions based upon the tsunami of paradoxical thought-forms unleashed by one or two words presumed to be factual. Consider the possibility that the words for "nothingness" actually means "no-charge," or simply "neutral." In other words, since ALL MATERIAL WORLDS are illusions composed of positive and negative electrical charges (energy), then the core Truth of enlightenment is contingent upon CENTERING or the STILL POINT from which all material worlds emanate. Thus, in past timelines, words related to the concept of electricity were not part of the social vocabulary.
Therefore, if the meaning of "nothingness" actually refers to the discipline of "No-Charge," i.e., not identifying one's ego to either half of a polarized thought-form, then the seeming paradoxes simply dissolve. Likewise, if by "thoughtlessness" it is meant that one must learn to release the tenacious grip of the intellect (which is a corrupted linguistic program used to define reality) in order to apprehend the Infinite Flow of Divine Love that power all universes, then, again, where is the paradox in that ageless Truth? There is none. Understand, then, that the so-called intellect, itself, is a linguistic program, and you can be certain that the words used to construct it are constantly manipulated by a counterfeit-hierarchy intent on inducing karmic enslavement to otherwise potential Masters whom they are loathe to acknowledge.
The point here is to avoid wasting precious time trying to "interpret" the "words" of great teachers and use your powers of compassion! In other words, put yourself in their place. What were they up against in their respective timelines? How does one convey a transcendental reality to a machine-code (serpent tongue) program designed to divide and die? The only illusion is that one can use such a program (which IS the intellect) to accurately convey a Cosmic Reality which contains it.
Now contemplate: What would YOU, as a teacher, say to a fish in a bowl who seeks the water of life?! Clearly, the idea of teaching that there is "nothing" or to seek "thoughtlessness" as a "way" to achieve enlightenment is simply a conceptual tool—as heavy handed as it is—by which to STOP the relentless enslavement to a mechanical, programmed, sense-bound intellect and hope that the spiritual consciousness of the sovereign soul (Heart-Mind) will awaken as a consequence of rendering the corrupted sensory intellect null and void!
Thus, by asking WHY did they teach what they taught, rather than WHAT do you BELIEVE they taught, will open a new understanding. In this way the TGF work is designed to replace the idea of "STOPPING" illusions with "ALLOWING" Truth to be realized! In Truth, when the intellect is disarmed, as it were, one's consciousness can begin to perceive Truth as a unified reality, not a relativity of alternating wave-forms in time. How is THAT different from any of the master teachings?
Now, regarding your important insights into the nature of thought-forms and one's sovereign WILL, it may be useful to let down your guard—the egoic i-am that identifies with its separateness as an objective opposition to the Totality of THE ONE. In many ways, thought-forms are like atmospheric molecules, or like the air that we breath. Yet, if you visited (incarnated) a big city, would you feel guilty for breathing because their are toxins in the air? For that is what we are taught by the counterfeit masters who seek to defile the innocence of the human spirit.
So yes, there are toxic thought-forms in the 4th dimensional "air" of earth-mind in this dimension, and breathing some of them in is unavoidable. Yet, the core values of Heart-Mind of the sacredness of all life will always lead one's Heart's desire to the fresh, pure, life-giving air of an uncorrupted place in nature. Therefore, it is the Divine INTENT of YOUR DESIRE that defines the existence of your spiritual essence as you transit this dimension, not the unavoidable contaminated random thought-forms. Thus, encountering corrupted thought-forms is not the same as dwelling on them or embracing them. One does not cleanse one's physical body out of guilt; but rather out of love and respect for its Divine Gift of experiencing life in this dimension.
If we extend the analogy of toxins in the air to the astral equivalent of thought-forms in this dimension, we find that they are subject to the same laws of physics as other material constructs. In other words, since all thought-forms constructing the material plane are electrically charged energy packets, it is quite possible for certain thought-forms to be attracted to one energy field or repulsed by another. Therefore, there are certain places on the earth and certain moments in the ever-shifting time-matrix where either negative or positive thought-forms are concentrated.
Now, should you suffer guilt and self-judgment over entering a zone of concentrated thought-forms that have nothing to do with you? Perhaps, you can see how subtle is the realm of thought and how illusory is the ego's claim to control it. Yet, if the wind blows dust into your face you would not claim that it is YOUR dust, nor would you feel the guilt and shame for its effect. Yet, the altered-ego is made to believe that any thought-form randomly blowing through its sphere of awareness is ITS own thought!!! It is little wonder that the human condition is rife with neurotic anxiety and self-loathing.
All this is also true of the physical bodies we occupy in any time-wave of this dimension. The altered-ego is an artificial construct programmed to believe that YOU ARE THE BODY, when this is clearly not the case. The human body is a holographic construct of archetypes which organize cellular relationships into a unique vehicle of cooperative sensory biases by which to experience a chosen set of probable timelines. Now, you may claim ownership of it as one would a loved-one, a pet, or a garden, in the sense that it is under your care and supervision. However, no sane entity can claim ownership of the Divine Template which organizes it and the Life-Force that gifts it with that Life-Force. In truth we borrow the vehicles we term bodies in order to negotiate this realm.
Now, consider that, unlike the physical body and the cells which form it, the mind, by its very nature, has no boundaries, because Mind is NOT a product of the physical universe—yet the universe IS A PRODUCT OF MIND. Therefore, it is neither wise nor healthy to attempt to use its powers of conscious-awareness to barricade one's spirit behind rigid walls of intellectual self-judgment, guilt, and the projection of same into the world.
Thus, the questions you ask are those of the intellect and the answers that you seek exist in the timeless state of your "higher" mind. In other words, the intellect has little to do with mind, because the intellect is a time-based program operating within Mind. So the answer to your question, "thoughtlessness; is it seriously possible?" is NO, because ALL IS THOUGHT; for even that which is considered void of thought is itself a thought. Now, contemplate the broader scope of reality by liberating the linguistic constrictions of your intellect: did the gurus in question really "stress on emptying the mind" to achieve a meaningless goal of thoughtlessness," or were they actually teaching the concept of shutting off one's counterfeit intellect masquerading as Mind in order to experience the timeless Centering Power Of The ONE Creative Force?
Clearly, if that which we know tomorrow is unchanged from today, we have ceased to learn. For the universe is an infinite, open-ended flow of thought which powers all dimensions of reality, both in and out of time. Moreover, each of us, in whatever form taken in the experience of living, is a Divine Thought-Form unto itself. Thus, the counterfeit-teaching of "eliminating thought" is a means to deny the life-force—for their are no original teachings in our current timeline that are not corrupted and compromised to serve the temporary agendas of enslavement currently being exposed in this great galactic shift of the ages.
Regarding your query, "controlling" thoughts is a term loaded with potential meanings that would require a book unto itself. As used in the TGF book, the reference is to our physical density as a 3D experience whereby thought-forms exist as 4D energy constructs. Therefore, the idea of using the 3D intellect to control a 4D realm is not possible. So the more appropriate word is CHOOSING rather than controlling. We are in this realm to choose from the sea of thought-forms and by that choosing, define our future journeys either toward the Light or in denial of it. Of course, in other dimensions, we can, indeed, control thought-forms, even create planets and stars in the material realms or cities of Light in other realms of Light. Yet the part of you experiencing THIS realm must abide by its unique laws governing its realm.
Thus, we should never assume that we are using the correct language constructs to convey metaphysical realities, for that road is full of traps. Another example is the term "mind," which is used indiscriminately and without discernment. All the universes and all dimensions exist within Universal Divine Mind. Clearly, the idea of "mind-control" is not only absurd, but delusional. However, we can certainly define "sense-control," for it is sensory-awareness (perception) that can be manipulated through personal and collective illusion in order to manipulate the reality-narratives used to enslave humanity via violent and destructive consensus.
So as you can see, my friend, we must use all our powers of discernment to negotiate this realm, for their are entities who actively seek the demise of all potential human mastery. As sovereign beings, our missions are to be Light Bearers who help others through the darkness of confusion. Perhaps you can see that, unlike most metaphysical teachings, The Genius Frequency work is not about telling the seeker WHAT to think, but rather HOW to think about that which is perceived by the senses. Thus, the former is a stagnant pool of thought-forms trapped in time, yet the latter is an active, living, Light from Heart-Mind by which to Discern Truth as a dynamic, fluid, interaction with the Divine, Christed-Mind of Eternal Life.
It is my hope that your most important questions have been answered to some degree. Typically, writing such lengthy replies is not feasible. However, there are many indications that your query is representative of many who are struggling with similar thought-form constructs and could benefit from contemplating this message. So this message will appear in some form (without reference to your name) in either my blog posts or my forum, both of which are on my websites. As Lights unto this world, our mission is to dissolve the thought-forms of denial, hatred, and deception with the Clarity of Truth.
