What is true?

Primal Om   Realising that one has not actually acquired anything (nothing whatsoever) through any spiritual practice or any method is touching upon ‘truth’. If you pause the thinking and look into yourself with a wholehearted clarity of simple awareness, it is quite obvious that nothing has been achieved, nothing has been acquired – and that there is no entity present and nowhere for any believed in entity to take a stand or claim anything in this clarity of naked cognition.  In it, there is nothing wrong and nothing needs to be fixed.  Like a crystal ball is empty, one can recognise […]

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 […]

Certitude of Being

  What are you absolutely certain of? Labels are limited and words are only pointers.   Certainty is not a belief or a concept. The imitation of being is the illusion of becoming.   The ‘me’ is a label, a word representing what exactly? Belief in the real is unnecessary.  Belief in the unreal only appears to be necessary.  Without belief the unreal dissolves by itself. The ‘me fixation’ is an imitation of being, always secondary. The mind translates the experiencing.  Experienc-ING.  The activity of actual experiencing is always this immediacy, the naked and unadorned, that which is not limited by concepts or beliefs.  […]

Everything appears in the Seeing.

Seeing-knowing happens through the entire organism – all of the senses are equal.   The intellect is a sense which, in a way, represents intelligence. It is intelligence but it is not the primary pure intelligence.  It is a tool, a facility which can be wisely utilised or the opposite, whatever that may be. Intelligence functions perfectly and naturally prior to learning words.  Once we take on words as devices of communication, it appears that we lose access to the pure intelligence that enabled the words or language to be learned.  Belief in words is probably the key factor why […]

Recognition is spontaneous

  Recognition is spontaneous.  A circle, a triangle, a rectangle, the colour blue, all spontaneously recognised without having to think about it. Spontaneous recognition reveals that there is no choice-maker or thinker in the spontaneous natural state.   Thoughts appear in consciousness spontaneously.   Everything is clear and obvious. Email: Gilbert, I have a question. I like reading your pointers. But I suspect, though they dissolve ego temporarily, I still am not having a really penetrating look at this illusion of ‘i’, and therefore am still invested in self. Would I not be better off spending some time each day […]

Who is free?

  The roots of language and the fruit of investigation Who is free? Who is in bondage? What is your true identity? Is it all hanging off a narrative?   Can the following possibly be true?   The solution to all of your worries may be too simple for you to recognise. Everything is sensation. You cannot postulate anything without a sensation because even the most subtle thought is a sensation. Basically sensation is a movement of energy. No labels come with the movement. Labels are added ‘after’ by the intellect. All labels and words have been learned. If we don’t […]

KNOW what is present and actual.

  Where does it begin?  Where does it end? The Urban Guru Cafe Free podcast is being discovered over and over again. Have you listened yet? Click image above. Demystifying the spiritual mind game. The so-called ‘spiritual journey’ relies entirely upon images and reference points – all in the mind.  Who’s Mind?  Your mind?  My mind?   Is there such a thing as mind if you do not image it?  What form does it have?  What colour or shape? How can you get to any destination by walking upon an imaginary path….a path that exists nowhere except in imagination?  What […]

NON DUALITY….is NOT what anyone says it is!

“The world is but the surface of the mind and the mind is infinite. What we call thoughts are just ripples in the mind. When the mind is quiet it reflects reality. When it is motionless through and through, it dissolves and only reality remains”. – Nisargadatta In deep space there is no left or right, up or down, no centre and no boundary. Where are you seeing from?  There also, there is no left or right, no up or down, no back or front, no centre and no boundary.    Close your eyes and empty the mind.  ‘Know the […]

The sword can’t cut it.

Clear and obvious just as it is Email enquiry: “I have a request of sorts. I was wondering if you could possibly devote a note to naming the top five or so erroneous beliefs that make up the ‘seeker’ and elaborate on them. I know I would find this helpful and am sure others would as well in investigating the ‘me’ concept.  – Thank you, R”. Reply:  The seeker doesn’t exist. 5 or 500 points on describing the features of a seeker would only entertain the intellect. In the scheme of things, plenty of so-called gurus entertain so-called seekers with endless […]

Spirit and Matter

Spirit cannot know matter. The messenger is not important.  The message can be expressed through anyone or anything, simply because the intelligence of all things is of the same source.  The word ‘source’ is not used to indicated some separate higher being.  There is only one being.  This experience of being-ness is the expression of the singular essence, common to all and that translates through the mind as the words ‘I am’.  All expressions are transient and not ‘some thing’ that is separate.  Your true essence is not limited by any words.  Intelligence is prior to language. Language is an expression of intelligence. […]

Before your next thought

The rift     There is infinite space prior to your next thought.  Explore it! Non conceptual awareness is not a concept, idea, word bound ‘thing’ or a thought. There is one significant pointer that I have reiterated many times and it this: Intelligence is prior to language. Intelligence is prior to the learning of language. Intelligence facilitates the learning of language or the learning of anything else! This information does not need to go over your head.   A little effortless effort to follow what is indicated…and an intention to investigate what is pointed out… is so very simple, uncomplicated… and […]
