Non Duality

Emptiness is ignored by the fixations of mind called ‘me’?

NEWS: Some of you will be aware that it was Bob Adamson’s ‘pointing’ that assisted in ‘my quest’ to realize the natural state.  To be frank and clear, I know of no one as clear as Bob.  His pointing is simple and yet appears to have a depth that resounds on and on.  No matter how many times I hear his simple pointing, it always resonates and it is also very obvious that Bob has no agenda attached to his sharing.  We have arranged a series of meetings to be available on his website, for download.  A small fee is […]

Silent reality

“What benefit can be derived from distinctions and separations” – from the ancient text known as the hsin hsin ming. Someone calling themselves ‘empty0grace’ made this comment recently about some of my ‘words’ published elsewhere: “So it seems we can follow knowing back to its source, or seek the root of attention, but what of feeling? If we follow feeling back to its source, is this the same realization? There seems something amiss in this tendency of classic Advaita to always posit reality in terms of cognitive function (seeing, knowing etc.), but never as the source of feeling or vitality […]

The unspeakable – spoken.

The sound is clear and the vision is also very good. This new DVD is bound to deliver the message to many who see it. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. In his book on the I-Ching, Khigh Alx Dhiegh, titled “The Eleventh Wing” the author touches upon many subtle aspects of life, and of course the I-Ching. On page 156 he says: “Surely it is important to know how to grasp the symbols and cling […]

Innate Self-Knowledge.

“The innate self-knowledge is always present. It is presence. It is not a concept. It appears as the witness of being, without being a witness”. – Gilbert The Urban Guru Cafe is not a corporation, it is not a business driven incentive.   Few promote it and it relies on word of mouth.  The UGC does not focus on any one teacher and it has a democratic approach with an emphasis on the clear expression of clear ‘pointers’. If you retrace your ‘steps’ back to the ‘First Instant’, when you first ‘became’ aware of this being-presence. That is it. This presence, […]

What is your true Identity?

In the apparent drama of ‘seeking’ one’s own true nature, the core issues, in the appearance of things, are always ‘related’ to Identity and Boundary. If you do not know what your identity is, then imaginary boundaries will quite naturally impose limitations upon what you truly are. However, those limitations exist only in the appearance of ‘things’. They are not true limitations – they are conceptual only. Self-Knowledge has been the key focal point in all the major religions. The original self-knowledge is not information gathered. In fact the accumulated information is what the mind constructs the imagined limitations with. […]

All experiences come and go. Experiencing is uninterrupted.

“Before the spark of any name is ignited in being – it is there -the spacious nature of the un-utterable – non being-ness -reality. Without consciousness, there would be nothing – so don’t image bliss is on the other side – love of being or ‘bliss’ is the living spark  forever igniting.”  – Gilbert “All that can be done is to point at what is absolutely true. No one can see for you. As Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj says: “Do not try to look through someone else’s eyes”. The taste of what is true is not a concept – it is […]

Once you truly see the truth of it.

NEWS: Listen to an interview with Gilbert on Being Ordinary, click HERE to listen or download it. Thanks to Michael and Tom for including me in their programs. Whatever it takes to get the ‘message’ out there, is valid and welcome. No one is asked to believe in anything that is said. SEE for yourself. Note to those who are reading my e-books. It is best to read 10 or less pages per sitting. You will probably have a sense of when to stop reading. I do not advise reading the entire e-book in one sitting. Is the following true?   […]

Awareness is NOT a concept.

Some folks get really upset if their beliefs are challenged, especially the ‘sacred spiritual beliefs’. Reality is not hidden and you will never ‘get it’ from anyone else. Just as an acorn contains the potentiality of covering the planet with Oak Trees, you own potency, or the seed of self-realization, is already present – it is ignored through belief in preferred fanciful concepts about enlightenment. Awareness is not a concept.   Seekers conceptualize, through ignorance, simple awareness into an object to go looking for ‘in the mind’.  They conceptualize images around a second hand idea called ‘enlightenment’. Be totally clear with […]

In the Beginning…..? What beginning?

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Genesis – The Bible. Word is vibration. In the beginning there was nothing – No Thing. Energy is a vibration and vibration (and the word was God) is a movement. All movement appears upon stillness. So if we conceptualize a beginning that is prior to movement, so it must be stillness. Stillness and movement cannot exist apart from each other. The other ‘application’ is that prior to learning language the child lives in the natural state without any reference points. Without a reference […]

It’s ‘truth’ is universally […]
