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

Spirale Space

“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 truth and the truth will set you free’.

Non Duality is not what anyone says it is because non duality is beyond the grasp of labels, words, emotions and points of view.

Ancient text from 8th century: 

“Should your mind wander away, do not follow it, whereupon the wandering mind will stop wandering of its own accord.

Should your mind desire to linger somewhere, do not follow it and do not dwell there, whereupon your mind’s questing for a dwelling-place will cease of its own accord”.   – End of quote.

Whether you use a microscope or a telescope or just this naked seeing, there is no inner or outer realm unless you conceptualise it.  To dream of something does not make it real.  To conceptualise something does not make it real.  The wisdom of being is eternal wisdom, pure intelligence – not something stored away somewhere.  It is ever fresh and new and that is why wisdom resonates in our being, as the living immediacy of vibration…..not just some transient concept in the mind.

The only fact you can be certain of is the fact of your own being.  That being has no beginning or end.  The form may change, as it does constantly but the being remains the same – even though decades, millennia or eons appear to come and go, the naked cognition, this impartial ‘knowing’, remains the same, untouched by any thing, subject or object.   This is why it seems to be the most difficult thing to realise – simply because it is always present, always so.  The mind misses it because the so-called mind is busy comparing and discriminating, juggling reference points and relating everything to ‘me;….. but realise this…neither the mind nor anything else can even appear to be or do anything without the life essence, the naked cognising, which is no thing, to the mind.  LIFE is energy expressing – Impersonal and without beginning or end.  One-ness.

Innately you already know this.  Stop the narrative and just be quiet.  In this way everything is revealed just as it is.  

You may agree or disagree with what is shared here.  I invite you to pull it all apart, break it all down.  Better still dismantle all of your beliefs and see what is left.  You can pull anything apart and space will remain untouched. You can pull apart all of your beliefs  – space-like awareness remains untouched, impartial and whole.  Why invest belief in transient points of view or erroneous beliefs?

Footnote:  The internet has umpteen presenters who profess to teach non duality.  Non Duality is not a teaching. Some claim to offer a Direct Path.  They are talking crap. There is NO path and to imply that there is, implies something to get at an implied destination and someone to get it in a future time.  Time is basically belief in duality. There is NO duality in non duality.  Just as infinity has no beginning or end, non duality has no starting point and no destination.  The unicity of the whole is not divided, never was and never will be.  To offer a teaching on non duality is nothing but ignorance parading as knowledge.

  1. Very succinctly expressed. A nice reminder, thank you.

  2. One of the most efficient ‘pointers’ is whatever offends you the most.
    Spiritual teachings by default protect an image of self and keep seekers trapped in a series of concepts and beliefs that have no exit, except through the empty mind. In reality there are no seekers and the search is a fiction for a fictional character.
    Being offended is an exceptional means of demonstrating to yourself that you have not seen through the self-centre. Thousands upon thousands believe they have reached some safe place in the ‘teaching’ that they have taken on board as a ‘genuine teaching’ but the fact remains that a few words can upset the apple cart at any time. Why pretend? Why pretend to be a spiritual person? Why pretend to be any kind of person?
    Self-calming techniques spread about by pretend teachers is an expensive diversion simply because it turns you away consistently from the present evidence. Playing mind games with yourself and pretending to be genuine is absurd and isn’t it absurd that it needs to be pointed out. No ‘teachers’ cut through the crap because they depend on that crap so they can bleed seekers of their attention and their cash. So-called international teachers roam about the civilised world and walk away with half a million dollars for giving a talk or some useless workshop. Everyone is left with the same situation that they were in prior to the talk or workshop. They got nothing! And they do it all over again because they believe they are ‘getting somewhere’, which, of course, these ‘teachers’ entice the seekers to believe. ‘You are almost there!’ It is all imagination. You are perfect right now but your attention goes onto conceptual imperfections and so-called conditioning. What conditioning is there, if you do not think about it? None. SEE THAT. Be free of the spiritual mind games that keep you trying to walk upon a path that does not exist. You are not stupid. Investigate the present evidence, without adding concepts and beliefs. Know the truth by being the truth.

    • I can attest fist hand, that the most potent pointers have been when i was extremely offended. to the point where i wanted to walk away and say screw you. and somehow. the pointer kept coming up. and could no longer be avoided. and something saw. and knew that what I am was beyond being offended. one has to get to a place where they don’t just want to feel good and “get something’ for ME. It aint for most so called people. it’s to direct. to simple. to cheap. and always free. thanks G.

  3. Frequency of the ripples including those stirred up by any type of teaching are harmless to the life essence. Life essence’s pockets are always full of emptiness.

    • Yes. Emptiness, of course….and yet emptiness cannot be full of anything. The ‘clarity’ that everyone talks about, that everyone seeks or wants is already so. Clarity is not something, not a thing. Even to say that clarity is the ground of everything is just a ‘pointer’ or an antidote. The value ‘in’ any pointer is not in the pointer but in the recognition of what the pointer is pointing to. It is a dualistic notion. The fleeting moments of recognition are nothing but cognition dispersing the mind content. Already so is the taste of recognising what you have always been, which is no thing to the mind. Therefore, searching in the mind or with the mind is a subtle fixation for an entity that does not exist. Who wants to know that? No one.

        That´s what I call to come around full circle without the slightest movement, lol. Never knew how you do it. it´s like watching one of those impossible images. But what I appreciate the most is the freshness, the inimitable taste of immediacy, so precious and effective in a direct dialogue. Bang! Still love it.

  4. mind-blowing
