Non Duality

There is no rainbow in the crystal – part 1

The clarity of pure being is not demonstrated as any thing.   Just as a light beam shone through a crystal reveals a display of colors, the rainbow of colors, when the light is turned off, the rainbow disappears.  The crystal remains the same, clear and empty.   The essence of being, pure being remains the same in all of us.  The display, the ‘rainbow’ spontaneously displays.   Love of being is non dual, it has no opposite.  Love of ‘personality’ (self-centeredness) is dualistic and must oscillate between the pairs of opposite.   If the personality is aligned with true […]

Self-importance – the illusion of ‘me’.

We all share one common inescapable fact.  This fact is not something that can be used as a means to dissect the natural essence of being, the unicity of wholeness.   This fact is not something to use as support for judgement of ‘others’ or of oneself.   No one can go beyond it and no one can dismiss or negate it.   What is it? The activity of knowing.    One may be filled with great sadness by witnessing the many ways that human beings behave towards each other.  The mean spiritedness, violence, the hatred perpetrated upon ‘others’ who […]

Thought free awareness

The true nature of mind is clear and empty. Thought free awareness is naturally present at all times.  If you recognize that thought free awareness is naturally present at all times, then what more is necessary? The natural clarity of cognition itself cannot be obscured by concepts or thoughts. They all appear like clouds in the sky. If the sun was not shining, the clouds would not be recognized in the dark luminous nature of empty space. The luminous nature of self-aware consciousness is seemingly ignored…..ignored by attention being attracted to (a habit of  an unexamined belief in being) ‘the thinker’.   […]

What is real?

The living tissues of the body are functioning intelligence, an obvious display of intelligence that the mind cannot successfully explain.  The brain is living tissues and even after decades of study, with increasing sophisticated instruments, the theories and the complexity of all the explanations do not solve the sheer mystery of how the brain works.   Intelligence is Life.  Intelligence acts as integration and integration is Life. Moments of harmonic resonance in being, appearing in the experiencing, is the life of intelligence resonating with (and as) the expression (form) of life itself.  A sense of no separation signifies the singular nature […]

Nothing wrong

Since there is nothing wrong or right with reality and since all concepts about right and wrong belong only to the realm of thinking, therefore it should be clearly obvious that everything must be and can only ever be perfect in its own spontaneous nature, prior to any thinking about it.  Innately we all know this – simply because it is the nature of awareness to be aware – self aware!  The content of awareness is awareness – no separation. In it’s own completeness every so-called ‘moment’, within its own immediacy, there is nothing wrong (or right).  Even thoughts about […]

Self Calming techniques do not lead to freedom

Here is part of an email answer to a friend who is practicing breathing techniques. Breathing is natural, an instinct.   Your first breath was taken without any interference from the intellect.  The intellect does not have the job of ‘doing’ the breathing.  Trance states of mind induced by breathing techniques will naturally fade away.   The imaginary narrative about how it calms the mind and about how the believed in entity is ‘getting somewhere at last’ is fabrication.  Slavery to techniques has to be accommodated into the ‘life-style’ of the ‘self-image’ and what good is any of it?   […]

C’est la Vie

The natural unicity of awareness is non dual.   Awareness is self-aware and all inclusive.   Naturally including all that appears AS awareness and all that appears to appear upon or within the infinite scope of awareness.  No belief or concept, idea or image has the slimmest chance of separating this natural all inclusive awareness, no matter how subtle or gross, no matter how simple or how elaborate the concept, idea, image or belief is. All is sensation, registering upon non dual awareness.  Thoughts, feelings, emotions and all experiences register prior to the translations of mind – before words, explanations […]

Recognize! Re-cognize!

The solution is so simple we don’t even notice or if we do, we dismiss it as nothing. Adhering to the ‘personal’ realm of being a ‘seeker’ is bondage of self.  Investigate that bondage of self and really see if there is a self in bondage.  See if there is any truth to it. A life time of struggle with a phantom is a wasted life.   Your only purpose is to find out what you are.  Not ‘who’ you are.  ‘Who you are’ is just an endless story that will go to the grave with you.  Use the intellect […]

The limitations are mere beliefs

Hallo G,  I have had this idea for quite a while that self-realization seems to come to a particular type of mind. Whether it is you or others, you appear as your personality was “wired” for it… an independant temper, self-assurance, sharp minds… And for this reason, only the desire for truth can lead to awakening. Although it is not through intellect, the type of conditioning (more good than bad) is primordial. I guess my hopelessness comes from that presumption. I am too dissatisfied with myself, too anxious, too badly wired, too self-referencing… What do you think truly ? – M. Reply: Belief […]

Point of view held by no one.

“Ignorant of what he is most assured of, his glassy essence.” – William Shakespeare All that is born into consciousness is nothing other than consciousness.  Pure consciousness is undifferentiated and all inclusive.  All that appears and all that disappears in consciousness is nothing but a display of consciousness itself.  Neither right, nor wrong.  Throughout Eons of  ‘time’ nothing is added… and nothing is taken away from consciousness.  No ‘thing’ has a beginning or an end.  All is spontaneous.  Forms appear and disappear like clouds in the sky.  The sky remains the same.  Consciousness remains the same, even though it appears […]
