Non Duality

What are your origins?

The merging of apparent duality into this natural and obvious oneness, the disappearance of the mind’s argument with itself, the disappearance of the last bastion…..is actually an illusion….. …..but it does clearly and un-mistakenly signify the arrival of understanding. The content of consciousness and the spacious nature of awareness are one and the same. Recognise these two in yourself and the unity is clear and obvious. A seeker cannot know this ‘knowledge’. A seeker is a pre-occupation of mind, an erroneous search in the mind for its (mind’s) own origins……and its own origin is a fiction, a mere concept that was/is […]

Unexpected smile overturns old beliefs.

You simply need to see that the me is not real. You already have felt the relief when it is not supported by the story. So……just realise that it is not real. In seeing that it is not real NOW……..you must KNOW that it never was real. When the story comes back, just see it for what it is……..and keep seeing that it is not real.  It will soon cease to bother you.  It only ‘lives’ because of inattention. Pay attention and just refuse to buy into the old story, as being real. It will wither away…..but it will not do […]

The contents of this site.

Basically the things that are expressed on this site will not mean anything to the average person who stumbles upon it. In fact it will seem like complete nonsense for some.  There has to be a genuine questioning of the basic ‘problems’, which are identity and boundary.  All of our problems stem from these two aspects of being, which the mind has embellished with erroneous beliefs. For some, the contents will have a resonance to them, possibly.  The views expressed herein are not from a worldly sense or from any consensus reality views. If certain insights have already taken place, […]

The skill of seeing-knowing is not the person

Pointers are like precision tools. You can ponder them or admire them – forever, with no result whatsoever. It is how they are used that counts. A pointer in the hands of a fool becomes foolishness.

An ego cannot speak or do anything.

The ego cannot speak…. for it does not exist except as an idea. No idea has any substance whatsoever….. and no concept has any power other than what you give it. What we call ego is a belief in being a ‘person’ and the persona is a mask, an image-concept – an interface between the apparent duality of ‘world and me’. I have never yet found a mask that could speak. Through non investigation, the idea of being a separate entity continues to be believed in. Many speak of love.  Sunflowers face the sun in the morning. There is only […]

One task is enough.

Your only task is to investigate whatever it is that causes unnecessary concern or worry for you……. AND……..to discover that it is always a concept or an image of self that is the root of it all. Duality is an appearance within the scope of that which is non dual. Unicity is not divided by anything. A concept cannot divide anything except another concept. The sunrise appears to divide the night from the day. One sun, one earth, one unceasing movement. Where is the division? Awareness is non dual. Mind and appearance are one.   Everything can be traced back […]

The true essence, never born, never die

Who am I? Who are you? What am I? What are you?  Who ‘can’ and who ‘can’t’?   Who ‘does’ what, to what?   Who is the ‘doer’ and what is the ‘done’ (deed)? What is separate from what? Where does this intelligence ‘come from’ if not from itself? Awareness is self-aware. Life energy is intelligence. Every cell of the body is an expression of life energy. The orchestration of all the cells of the body, the various systems of the body, all the layers of living tissues – all orchestrated like a symphony. Without the life energy, the cell, […]

Who is stuck in pure consciousness?

Q: Gilbert, I’m stuck, I don’t know who I am. There’s a lot of stuck energy in my body, I feel sort of depressed, the search, the hope is almost dead, it just goes around in loops and never results in anything. I’ve done so much spiritual work, so much psychological work. I don’t know whether to keep pushing or to just give up. Neither seems to work, to bring me freedom from suffering. I would appreciate any pointing you could offer. A: Where are you actually seeing all this psychological story FROM? You must be totally genuine in an […]

Clarity is ever fresh – one step ahead of all concepts.

All of your philosophies and trophies of attainment are stories. All of your stories, all stories, without exception are untrue – no matter how true they may appear to be. The word is not the actuality. The actuality is ever fresh, one step ahead of all words and all contemplation. The confirmation of what is true IS that which is true – and that is beyond words, silent and clearly obvious. The Great Perfection of existence is non conceptual existence. That will NEVER manifest as words, concept or images. It is the sheer clarity of clarity itself. Impossible to deny […]
