Non Duality

Seeing is all inclusive – there is no actual ‘seer’.

Here is a recent recording on this ‘subject’ of seeing. [mp3player width=400 height=100 config=fmp_jw_widget_config.xml playlist=seeing.xml] The ancients speak of All Seeing – All Knowing – All Presence.   The habit is to see those words as pointers to some ultimate state belonging to God or some higher realm.  The everyday, ordinary awareness or seeing is what the words are pointing at.   There is only one seeing – one knowing.   The belief in being separate appears in the all seeing. The habit of belief can be broken.

The mind is time.

The mind is appearance – it appears as thoughts, concepts, images and memories – and the world also appears. There is no mind apart from thought, concept, memory or ideas.  We call it ‘content of mind’. There is no actual container.  There is nothing outside of mind and nothing inside of mind (No Thing).  The true nature of mind is clear and empty.  That insight will stop the mind. When it is said that we must go beyond the mind it refers to a ‘state’ of No Mind and No Mind is No Thing. Reality is No Thing – the […]

Silent resonance in being.

What lies behind your opinions? What lies behind your self-knowledge? Is your self-knowledge luminous, transparent? Does your being shine brightly without any obscuring beliefs or fears about yourself? Have you found the clarity upon which everything is moving and changing? Do you know your true nature? What is real is real.  What is not real is not real.  Simple. What are you absolutely sure of, without a single doubt? Can you answer these questions simply without looking for an answer? If not, why not? There is no answer in the mind.    Everyone is looking in the mind for something […]

In a nutshell – direct pointing

A pattern, whether it be the universe, a thought, a state of being, an idea, a mood, a gesture, a movement, a sensation in the body or a gentle breeze upon the skin, it is all an appearance, appearing on awareness – is awareness in expression.  Can you get behind awareness? There is a clear insight that is always present potentially.  Expressed in words it may appear like this: There is no capacity of knowing, no capacity of cognition in the pattern itself – there is no substance or indepedent nature in the pattern.  Just like the reflection in the […]

Everything appears in the SEEING

At the base of the old signpost there are some solid rocks keeping it erect.  Reality keeps the signpost pointing in the right direction like a magnetic force. Everything appears to be.  Nothing has any separate being.  There is only one appearance.  Just like there is only one reflection in a mirror.  Many ‘things’ appear in the mirror but none of them have any separate substance other than light reflected on the surface of the mirror.  Look as close as you like, it is only mirror.  The appearance we call the world is the same principle.   Time or duration, […]

Insight is instant, spontaneous. It is not a reaction of mind.

Being is being. Becoming (practice) is an illusion. What effort do you need to make to be what you truly are? None whatsoever. Practice implies a fixed identity that has to do something in time in order to achieve something in an imagined future. All insights are spontaneous and immediate. The essence of all insights is SEEING. The nature of all practices is mechanical repetition. WHO is doing a practice? Investigate that and insight will cut through all mind stuff – and leave you as you truly are, present and aware. You are already awake – simply because wakefulness is […]

Who am I ?

I am the self-less self. I am invisible, beyond the manifest patterns of all appearance. I am what you are. Because you appear to not know of my existence, I nudge you quietly and subtly from ‘inside’. You have forgotten me because of an ignorance, which you call ‘self-knowledge’ coupled with what you call ‘worldly knowledge’. It is my activity that animates you, including the indulgence of ignorance. For without my activity even ignorance would not ‘happen’. Out of silence there arises a subtle ‘hum’ (Aum) and this activity is the first instant, the only instant of knowing. Because you […]

So Simple, we miss it.

NOTICE:  There are many posts on this site that are only visible to those who register and log in.  At the moment registering is free.  Changes may soon be in place to change this free access.  There will always be freely accessible material on this site. <<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>> The clearest, direct pointing is always simple.  Only a few words are necessary. Unnecessary words do not need to appear in the expression. Complex belief systems are completely unnecessary and only indicate non-clarity. Recognition does not come from the pointers but from immediate acknowledgment of what is true – or simply knowing – […]

Explore – Investigate.

You have taken yourself to be something that you are NOT – and so reality, or pure consciousness, is unbearable without the illusions of ‘me’.  And so reality appears to be something to avoid – but you can’t.  Suffering is resistance to what is.  What is is reality. The me is a fiction.   There is no locality to what you actually are – the sensations of that particular ‘point’ called the body is the first appearance – then the world appears with it. The mind say ‘Yes but….” Where the seeing is happening is BEYOND the form – it […]
