Reality, no more – no less.

One moment of self-realisation is eternity The word ‘moment’ implies time and a series of moments imply duration.   The word ‘one’ implies two. Wakefulness or awareness is not in time.  The content of mind is time bound.  The content of mind is an apparent parade of subtle patterns passing across the clarity of ‘no mind’ – not two.  So-called ‘self-realisation’ is not an event in time.  ‘What is’, is time-less self-less-realisation. Impartial totality. Impersonal cognition.  The ‘person’ is not reality.  Twist and turn it, flip it over, turn it round and round, the personal is relative to no thing. […]

Reflections upon the Dimensionless

Reflections upon the dimensionless How simple can it be expressed?   There are so many teachings, so many concepts and so many beliefs.  It is all clouding up the immaculate mirror of naked awareness…. or so it seems.  Wakefulness is self-shining, luminous and self-evident.  Taken for granted, no one notices its immaculate nature. There is not one single method that can wake up a dream character.  The indulgence in concepts of personal spiritual progress is a dream.  If anything, it is a moving away from the natural perfection of what is. How is this not recognised? The mind says ‘Yes But…..’  Belief covers over […]

The un-think-able

Wakefulness is never a ‘person’ The person is a dream character The innate knowing, the indisputable fact of being, ‘I am’, is not relative to apparent phenomena.  The knowing, the naked ‘I am’ (being-ness), does not need anything added to it.  Nothing can be added to that and nothing can be taken away from that.  This knowing is an activity, not a static acquisition, not a result or product of the intellect.  Thoughts about this activity of knowing are thoughts appearing in or on the activity of knowing.  The naked cognition, upon which all information registers, is like a substratum… […]

‘You’ are dreaming a dream.

the dream – nothing stays the same! no-thing stays the same!   The entire manifestation is one energy, which is expressing and appearing as duality. Everything is that singular energy, which we can call ‘essence’. It is the same energy that appears as the North Pole and the South Pole of this planet and every magnet. The label ‘north’ or ‘south’ are relative to each other.  Every stick has two ends.  This same singular (universal) energy  appears as a sperm and an ovum – the apparent beginning of your existence.  It is the same energy that appears as anger, as […]

The Hook without bait

The Hook The content of mind is a reflection of the changing nature of phenomena, none of it can stand alone, just as a reflection in a mirror cannot appear without the mirror. The utter simplicity of being, our true essence, is that which all things are reflected in or upon.     ……………….. A leaf is not the tree but you can see the basic pattern of the tree in the leaf. ………………. Wholeness is energy moving through all the patterns and the patterns are nothing but energy.   ………………. Every thought, idea, concept or memory is intelligence, energy, appearing as something, […]

The Bull

The Bull Q: “You like it strong?” A: “Yeah, strong is good!” ………………. The image of self can appear to take many forms.  Oil paint can appear as many convincing shapes and forms.   Famous paintings imitate 3 dimensions very convincingly but it is only pigment and oil on a 2 dimensional surface. The arrogance of self-centredness is due to belief in something that is not real, something that takes the credit for qualities that it can never have.   This I know first hand…. and through many years of observing so-called people.   To impartially observe the responses of ‘people’ […]

Shouting down an empty well

Shouting down an empty well – silence is a stern reply All of the functioning of intelligence, through the seeing, hearing, tasting etc. is perfect PRIOR to what the mind translates the sensations into. Consider the fact that intelligence was present as language was learned.  It was present as the brain was forming.  You cannot see the wind.  You see the leaves moving but the wind is invisible.  You cannot see intelligence and yet everything that is seen is intelligence appearing as form, shape, apparent things. You are ‘prior’ to any sense.  I use the words awareness and consciousness in […]

Investigate!

  ‘I’ for INVESTIGATE “There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is contempt prior to investigation.” Attributed by some to Herbert Spencer and by others to William Paley.  Does it really matter who said it?   Belief is the foundation of contempt for what is true. Investigate your beliefs and be free of belief. Despite the common belief that thought is powerful and that words have power, it is worth investigating the belief.  The burden of psychological […]

Basics

 Things are not what they appear to be Question everything. Are you seeking something?   How clear is the seeking?  Is it vague and indistinct?   Do you know exactly what you are seeking? Is there any definite evidence that what you seek actually exists outside of imagination? Where do you think or imagine that this thing you seek could be?  Outside yourself?  Inside yourself?  What is the self?  Do you truly know without a doubt?   Where exactly is ‘self’?  Self is self-evident surely.  The first ‘thing’ that you know must be self.  To be ignorant of self leads to […]

Where can consciousness hide?

The self-image (persona-mask) is a re-presentation of identity Slavery to the maintenance of self image is unnecessary Consciousness cannot hide itself from awareness.  The entity cannot see, hear or know anything. Consciousness and awareness are not two.   Differentiation (duality) is due to belief in see-er and seen. What everyone is searching for, you already are.   Innately we all know.   That-ness is not particular. In essence everyone is THAT (knowing).  Everything is THAT.  Not two. The majority, the believers, so it seems, believe that there is a process of ‘becoming enlightened’ and with this belief, forefront in their minds, […]
