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 centre and no boundary.   Ancient text from 8th century:  “Should your mind wander away, do not follow […]

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 […]

Who are you?

Micro-cosmos ‘I Am’ Extract from the book ‘Who do you think you are (without a reference point)?’ by the author of this post site. Imagination is NOT reality. Take a clear look now. Where you are SEEING from is clear and undivided presence. Wakefulness has no parts or levels. The light by which you SEE and KNOW is INTELLIGENCE (energy) itself. It is the intellect (a mechanical apparatus) that comes up with all these implied ‘parts and levels’. That intelligence is what you ARE. (How could you be separate from that?) The appearance of the body, the instrument of cognition, […]

Simple everyday English.

If you are experiencing any difficulty with the ordering, please write to me directly.  My email address is found in the About page. Primal sensation – Vertical – Horizontal – & the 4 corners of the universe. Intelligence is (was) present before the first word was learned.   Intelligence is (was) present every moment because intelligence is always present as ‘the primary facilitator’.   Intelligence is not bound by language – the innate knowing essence is free of words, experiences and the so-called ‘personal history’ is simply a shroud of ignorance, totally transparent.  Belief in it is where conflict and dis-ease […]

Nothing in it for me.

Contriving The persona (person) is a mask. Contriving to convince others that ‘my understanding is excellent’ is a common feature for self-centred seekers, blind to their own fixation on ‘me’. If only they could see their obsession with me clearly, they might have a chance but the self-centredness is fortified by a private and secret fear of being exposed. In spiritual circles, a facade of ‘beautiful concepts’ masks what is going on below the surface.  A facade of selflessness cannot hide the contriving persona of the anxious aspirant, so driven by neediness and wanting.  A lot of energy goes into […]
