Active Receptors – passive receptors

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, hear, say or do anything. The keeper is pure intelligence.  So, if the message registers, even though it is not heard clearly, it may come up later as a reminder. The me […]

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 […]

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 […]
