Non Duality

Evolved being?

Most philosophy and most spiritual teaching is based on erroneous concepts. What is true is simple and obvious. All the layers of belief and all the theories, complex and simple, are nothing but energy patterns appearing and disappearing. What is the witness of it all?   Is it you, is it what you truly are? The believed in entity is a transient re-occuring pattern. Remove the energy from the habit of belief and it falls apart.  What you are can witness it falling apart….. or you can witness the concept of me disappearing and the concept of a witness dissolves […]

Post from Bryan

This is a posted comment from Bryan. The mind is resistant to change – humans are resistant to change – when this is seen – it shakes the personality to the core. It is a suggestion that the whole identity that the person is built on is false – this will lead to fear – overwhelming feelings of bliss (yes people get overwhelmed by bliss) – feelings of unworthiness (I’m not modified, I need my imperfections to maintain my sense of humility) – fear of loss of responsiblities (if I don’t believe in my responsiblities something might break down and […]

Notes on scrap paper.

There is only LIGHT NOW. There is no ‘en’ or ‘enment’. Who is searching for what? All of ‘our problems’ are due to ‘identity’ and ‘boundary’. Neither actually exist. Discovering the truth of that releases the bondage of self. There never was a self – however the appearance that we call the universe or world is nothing other than self. There is no mirror and no reflection. You cannot find the seer because all there is is ‘seeing’. The innate pure intelligence of a child prior to learning language is all we need to see through the illusion of being […]

Nothing but Wakefulness – no progressive path exists.

Wakefulness is the nature of life. LIFE is all there is. There are no separate entities living a separate life anywhere.  None.  Nowhere, Nil. The veils of the unfolding which you may call the stages of ‘awakenings’ all appear upon this Naked Wakefulness. There is no individual who travels through any layers of phenomena to arrive at some exalted final understanding. Wakefulness is actually understanding itself. There are no misunderstandings in this natural clear and present, actual, wakefulness.  It is immediate prior to whatever the mind has (apparently) collected as knowledge. All advice about ‘working’ on a self and the […]

How can I see through the eyes of another?

How can you SEE anything as others see it? There is actually no ‘how’ to this naked seeing. It seems that many think, THINK, that reality is what their mind translates, as thoughts, concepts, words etc. All such things are transient. “Whatever appears in Consciousness will disappear in Consciousness. But Consciousness is ever present”. –Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Only by finding that which does not change ‘in yourself’ does one truly taste ‘reality’. In that instant all boundaries dissolve naturally. No inside or outside – no centre to it and no boundary either. In this naked experiencing all definitions remain at […]

Who does not get it?

R: So Gilbert, how do I/no I (whatever) GET THIS then? G: Get what? R: Natural state business: it just isn’t  working! G: Start from the FACT that you are THAT. Then it is effortless. It is not a thought or belief, it is the immediate activity of pure knowing. This knowing is non dual – undivided presence awareness. The mind cannot divide this natural activity of cognition with any concept. R:  Sorry, I’m a thickhead – I don’t know what ‘the mind cannot divide the natural activity of cognition means’. G:  The activity of knowing is undivided by thought. […]

The Struggle of a non existing entity

  The mind will grab onto anything that perpetuates its reign. It is all useless. LIFE is all expressions. All of it is valid in the appearance. Particularizing belongs to mind. Without a single thought, awareness is naked and complete.  Nothing can be added or taken away from THAT. There is no individual anywhere. The struggle of gurus, teachers and pupils amounts to nothing. Pointing at naked awareness is rare……..simply because there is nothing in it for the believed in entity. Truth is truth – it does not change.  No one ever woke up – because there is no one […]

Pure enlightened being

What I am (what you are) is beyond all appearances – beyond light and darkness.  Beyond all the appearance – beyond duality.  Beyond the concept of oneness. In the realm of time and space ‘others’ have expressed clearly in words what they understood about their true nature.  Many of them were tortured and burnt at the stake.  The situation has not changed.  In this appearance of space and time, one hears stories of seekers trying to find enlightenment and of great suffering. Many profess to show the way and it is obvious that it is nothing but the blind leading […]

Correspondence with Dennis #1

Dennis: Good morning Gilbert.  Can I perhaps run something by you? Gilbert: OK shoot away.   Dennis: Anything I perceive is only in the mind.   Gilbert: Yes and no.  There is no mind actually. Perceiving is not clear seeing.  Perceiving is a process of mind.   Dennis: Like for instance, all I know about you are these images that I seem to have of you, so whatever I see is not what it is. Gilbert: Seeing is the actuality. (What the mind ‘makes’ of it is only the actual AS a translation)   Dennis:  Yeah.   Gilbert:  There is no […]

Dump the crap – NOW.

The direct pointing stops folks from knocking down my door.  There is nothing to get here.  You are already THAT.  Why even tap or knock on the door.  A thankful traveller may knock now and then…. and say… ‘Hey, thanks for that’.   Even that is not necessary.  It does happen and the feeling that comes with it is pleasant. The crux of it all is simple.  It is as simple as having a pain in the guts.  Something tells you that there is something ‘wrong’, some action is necessary.  What action is necessary? All it is, is….One needs to […]
