So Simple

Spiritual promises are empty and unreal.  Service to the illusions of  ‘becoming’  is the common obstacle that is not spoken of in ‘spiritual teachings’. Wishing and hoping, hoping and praying.  It is foolish to believe when the proof of direct knowing is self-evident.  Belief is not reality.  Round and round it goes, turning upon emptiness like a ring of wooden horses on a turnstile. The true message is direct and uncompromising. No one is asked to believe anything. There is no one bound up in any phenomena of any kind. What is not true requires a conceptual construct to make […]

Turn, turn, turn.

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which was planted.” – Ecclesiastes 3 – King James Version Reality is that which never changes, THAT which IS.    IS-NESS.  Undeniable is-ness, as is. Unaltered, unmodified (by mind) and uncorrected.  THAT which IS. That which changes is that which ‘appears to be’.   Everything is appearance – appearance is everything.  What the appearance appears upon is like space – no thing. Fear of […]

Truth or reality

What is most usually not recognized is that there is a bias to our ‘wanting to know’.  The ‘me’ gets desperate, frustrated, secretly or openly blames the ‘other’, life or maybe the ‘teacher’, then it all comes back on the ‘me’.  Depression sets in.   The way out of it is clear and obvious but it is not recognized. Just as the sky is not recognized due to the attention being attracted to the content of the sky.  Clouds, birds, planes, storms, blueness…. and then there is that gloomy grey-ness which appears to upset the self-image for so many.  The […]

Trans-parent Words

The SAME activity of knowing runs right on back and prior to Adam and Eve.  The activity of knowing has no parents.  It is trans-parent.  What you are is not the result of any cause – you are actually trans-parent.  The body is animal and in the scheme of things the body has parents, in the appearance of things. It seems that no matter how clearly it is pointed out, no one ‘gets it’. It is more simple than simple. The basic problem is that everything is apparently automatically referred to the believed in entity (me, an image of self). You […]

Thought cannot see. Thought cannot know anything.

If there was, is or ever will be a ‘knower’ then the knower could not possibly be content of the ‘known’.   The ‘knower’ must be beyond the ‘known’.  ‘Knower and known’ are conceptual reference points appearing in the ‘knowing’. You can take a photo of something on the ground and you may not notice that your foot is in the ‘shot’.   The foot is not the believed in entity that is ‘taking the shot’.   You cannot take a photo of your self, the observer.   You cannot see the ‘observer’ and no one else can see the […]

Belief is ignorance.

The words belief, certainty and conviction refer to the acceptance of, or confidence in, an alleged fact (or body of facts) as being true or right without any positive knowledge of proof. An apple is an apple.  The apple does not require belief, certainty or conviction.  It is an apple no matter what someone believes it is.  If it is a pear that looks like an apple, then it is a pear that looks like an apple.  It does not require words or belief from anyone to be what it is.  Blind belief, including so-called certainty, indicates belief and positiveness […]

Non Duality – two words

Many divide the natural oneness of ‘what is’ in their own minds. Oneness means oneness. Non Duality cannot be divided, least of all by mere concepts or ideas, attitudes or opinions. The terms commonly used today, ‘Neo Advaita’ and ‘Traditional Advaita’, belong to a dividing mind. Any credence given to those divisive terms only keep the mind in servitude to belief in concepts. Dvaita means Two. A-dvaita means Not Two. Advaita is commonly translated as ‘One without a second’.   Advaita means non duality in plain english. Non Duality is not a religion. Non Duality is not a belief system. Non […]

The Fire and the ashes

It seems that everyone is afraid of fierce emotional states. Everyone wants bliss. Life is a flow of all there is, in all its diversity. What a wonder emotions are! Instead of building a wall of concepts or running away from or blocking emotions or hiding in imaginary places in the mind where emotions can’t get ‘you’ – light a bonfire and toss ALL of your beliefs into the flames. Watch (observe) the mind and see how its content of transient existence cannot survive its own imaginary ‘time’. Mind is time. Your true essence is beyond appearances. The sword can’t […]

No way, no path.

The clear and obvious nature of oneness is not subjected to any dimensions. It is not subjected to any directions and it is free of all concepts. The past was never created. The future has never been created. The present is beyond the capacity of the intellect. The intellect in essence is intelligence, energy appearing as a pattern. The content of the intellect arrives as a spontaneous, never-ending, flow of what can be named as ‘relativity’ and the relative is dualism. Awareness is non-dual. The singular nature of ‘your own consciousness’ is obvious and yet it is beyond all boundaries […]

Beyond the reach of words

‘One energy’ moves in all there is. One without a second.   Indescribable, inconceivable, un-namable and totally beyond anything that mankind has given a name to. Even though this energy, this one energy is inconceivable, it is the very movement of cognition and is not separate from any ‘thing’ and all things are nothing other than this same one energy moving.   How can you say that you know it not? Nothing can be separate from the knowing (cognition). The movement is Omnipotent Cognition. Self-knowing. There is no separate subject or object. All concepts are included as subtle movements of […]
