Wakefulness

FREE e-book in PDF, ePub or mobi format – limited time offer.   Send email request for a copy.  State which type of file you require. Email address is in the About section top of screen.   The simple fact that almost everyone appears to overlook: Wakefulness. Wakefulness is NOT a state of mind. The wakefulness is ‘with’ everyone, perfect and pristine. Nothing alters it. No need to attain it or do some practice. All things appear upon the wakefulness….all the striving, the failing, the wanting, the wishing, the misery of me, the bliss of simplicity. Nothing changes the wakefulness. […]

The ultimate transparency remains unnoticed.

Whatever truth is in religion, you can rip up all the books, burn all the texts, tear down all the sacred buildings and send all the followers away. What will be remaining, untouched is what is real, often called the truth. Invisible to the naked eye and without need of any proof, any agent or witness. Do you need to be reminded of being here, now? How could you forget? What is most familiar to us is not noticed because it has never not been present.  Mind uses contrast to distinguish this from that.  That which is most familiar to […]

The IMAGE of self cannot feel anything.

Self image is just an image.  Imagination. Basically everything is simple in reality.  Psychological suffering is not necessary. If you believe that psychological suffering is happening to you, investigate that apparent identity and really see if there is something there, something that has any real substance. If the substance of the me fixation is seen to be merely thoughts, concepts, ideas, images and memory, energy appearing as perception in mind, how can you take yourself be those appearances? The mind will always operate in the same way. Knowing what thoughts are, stops belief  (subtle energy patterns), stops a believed in […]

Active Receptors – passive receptors

  Hearing is an activity of intelligence. Listening is a transient state of mind. …… The nature of wholeness is all inclusive. As soon as you fixate on something specific it seemingly becomes exclusive – all about ME. …… As long as you take everything personally, the message will only ‘go through to the keeper’ (Cricket terminology). The person or persona is a mask.  The mask cannot see or hear.  Seeing is happening.  Hearing is happening….prior to the mask. The keeper is pure intelligence.  So, if the message registers, even though it is not heard clearly, it may come up […]

Nutshell Pointer

  You have heard many pointers, read many pointers.  You may have read many teachings or philosophies but none has brought an end to the search. If any of them had done so, you would not be reading this right now. Efficiency of pointing is essential.  Clarity of expression is significant.  What good is any pointer if it does not bring recognition of what is being pointed to? It is my opinion that the following highlighted lines are all you really need. If you take a closer look you will see that no reference point in mind is anything other […]

Myth of Clarity

The message can be as simple as this: Seeing is happening. Knowing is happening. Everything is perfect. There is nothing wrong. Pause a thought and recognise the truth of it. ~ End of pointing. ………………   The mind (me) wants proof but there is no proof in the mind.  The mind will keep dividing everything and so it cannot find rest. To be tormented by self-definition and self-inflicted limitations is not what our potential is here for. Our potentiality is as spontaneous as the activity of knowing.   To place limitations on that potentiality requires belief in being something separate from […]

No ‘out there’ – no ‘in here’

Ashtavakra:  “The man of knowledge (Jnani), though living like an ordinary man, is contrary to him and only those like him understand his state”. Upanishads:  “Fools dwelling in darkness, but thinking they are wise and erudite, they go round and round, by various tortuous paths, like the blind led by the blind”.  (Upanishads Nikilanada – Ch II – 5  P-14) All of the popular teachings, current today, are all using methods to improve the image of self, which is a self-referencing loop in the mind.  The teachings imply levels of consciousness and a means to go up or down these […]

Light upon the ground of Being

‘Light upon the ground’ – artwork (click on image for closer view) The pristine clarity of naked awareness remains as it is. A mind that is bound by belief cannot know the freedom of natural spontaneity. Belief in the ‘thinker’ (a thought) is like a conceptual wedge driven into the natural oneness, appearing to divide the mind and its fabricated owner. Those who are motivated by ego cannot hide it. It is on display and there is no mistaking it. It is clearly obvious where they are coming from. The false can never become reality. Who can hide their private […]

Seeing through everything

 Investigate your own translucent being Seeing is the registering of everything.   The natural world registers in the seeing-knowing.  Thoughts, concepts, images and sensations appear in the seeing-knowing.  What substance do they have? If this registering were not so, how would you know about anything?   Everything is registering prior to whatever the mind translates it into.  The mind, the so-called mind, is nothing but thoughts, images, concepts, ideas and memories appearing and disappearing.  It all registers precisely as it is. The actual registering is the seeing-knowing.  No Separation! Whatever the mind translates is also registering – like clouds in […]

Love is not getting – it is Giving.

  Love is like a resonance in being. Love is spontaneously expressing without any need of the intellect. The love that most folk talk about can flip to hate in a second….it is dualistic, a form of slavery to images and ideas, needs and an appetite for intimate pleasure.  All of it is appearing to serve an imaginary entity, me. Once we get the intimacy we long for, we put limitations upon that which appears to be the object of desire.  We squeeze the living daylights out of it because we don’t want anyone to steal it away…. and so […]
