‘Who am I?’ Who is asking?

‘I’ is  a word.  Belief in ‘I’ as something solid and real is self-centredness. Who am I?   The apparent ‘great question’, held in high regard in spirituality.   It may seem like a profound question to ask oneself but is it? Who is asking the question, if not you (who you think you are), then who? Who will answer, if not you (who you think you are), then who? (or what?)   Does it have to be spelled out for you?  WHO is it that needs to ask ‘Who am I?’  Are you more than one presence?  Is this presence divided […]

What is it that you really want?

“Trees” The natural state is the innate knowing, which abides with everyone, irrespective of the conditioned mind. The simple question “What conditioning is there, if I don’t think about it?”… is direct and uncompromising. In order to recognise the ‘answer’ to that question, there needs to be a pause of thought.  The ‘mind’ cannot ‘do it’ but a spontaneous intention can.  What is uncovered is an unexpected revelation…..but a pause is necessary in order for the seeing to be naked (non conceptual awareness).   It is possible while thought is ‘active’ but it is rare prior to this investigation. The empty mind is naked awareness […]

What have you attained?

Wood engraving ‘The Path’ – just an image. ‘You’ may believe you have been ‘on the path’ for decades and you may be very serious about your spiritual practices. Without going into memory and without referring to the ‘habitual story of me’, what exactly have you attained after all that ‘serious endeavour’, after all that ‘time’?  Now, pay close attention to your private and secret responses to the questions. A spiritual pretender will go straight to referring to their spiritual image. Anyone who is genuine will investigate. You didn’t ask for it but the opportunity presents itself.  Excuses from the ‘me’ will […]

The person on a path

How accurate is your self image? Isn’t it time one investigated the illusion of ‘the spiritual path’? You are not what you think you are. If you are not what you think you are, who or what are you? There is no answer in the mind.  Why are you looking there? In the secret chambers of your imagination, you probably measure yourself against certain ‘ideal ways of being’. Do you ever measure up to any of them?  Where are you measuring such things from?  Who is measuring what? Is there a static point of perfection, which you can use as […]

Prior to mind content.

The mind can only understand what it has ‘created’ or synthesised itself. You cannot teach what you do not know. For those who believe in god, god is that which abides beyond the reach of reason. Belief steps in to fill in where evidence is lacking. In the terms of religion ‘god made everything’, yet so many complain and fight against much of their own ‘god’s creation’. ‘People’ destroy others, not unlike themselves, over belief in their own special ‘membership rights’ of a particular religion, gang or country. Mind content fights with mind content and the enemy is within. Spiritual […]

Be totally genuine with yourself. Why not?

Without a word or label, what are you?   Sensation?  What form does the spirit have, what colour or shape? The seeker is seeking something that is apparently not present.  If it is not present then is it imaginary?  Is it mere images in the mind? What is this absurdity of wanting some rumour about an ‘awakening’ while denying the clarity of wakefulness, which is present now? Commonly a seeker in spiritual circles has heard about a wondrous state or place of enlightenment and goes in search of it.  To do this he/she must ignore the ‘already presence’, the perfection of being, […]

The false will never become reality

The enemy of mankind is self-hatred.  An impostor sitting in the seat of consciousness.  A false king indulging in imaginary powers of the mind. Within the expansive nature of love there is no room for fixations upon the false.  A painted sky can never become the sky.  A wooden puppet will never become a walking, talking being.   Denial of the spontaneous and essential nature of existence is through belief in being something that one is not.  To affirm the image of self or to deny the image of the self will not change the fundamental nature of the image of […]

No need, no wanting.

Awareness is mirror-like.  (You cannot see the mirror, only the reflections that fill the mirror) Consciousness appears upon naked awareness – the consciousness is ever-changing.  Awareness is not appearing, except as a display of ever-changing consciousness.  Pure awareness is ever-changeless. Everything that appears is consciousness, no matter how large or how small. Whether you conceive of something as negative or positive, it is the same energy appearing as content of consciousness, expressed from the same source, the same essence. What is aware of the consciousness?  To be totally conscious of being conscious is to perceive no separation between consciousness and […]

Intelligence moving through a dead spot

The spiritual realm is a wondrous display of ignorance and imagination.  It is Image-ing in the mind, completely imaginary from its apparent beginning right through to its apparent end.  It can end right now! How rude of ME to point this out!  Let’s not waste any time or energy on being offended.   Who is it that is actually offended?  The answer must be ‘me’, I am offended.  What is that ‘me’?   Surely you must know what it is.  If it is real, it must be here now. So, investigate.   The past is dead and gone.  Everyone knows […]

‘You’ can’t handle the truth

The person is not reality.  No one can get around that fact.  The contrived individual is a slave to its own contrivance.  It is imaginary! The private and undisclosed spiritual pride of a seeker is little more than spiritual arrogance hiding behind a wall of belief.    You may say… “How dare you!” and my reply is “How dare you!” If one is not willing to expose all of one’s erroneous beliefs, how can one entertain the idea of earnestly ‘seeking truth’?  No belief is ever actual knowledge!  NO BELIEF is EVER knowledge!  Investigate that thoroughly. Maya, the illusion, has […]
