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 […]

Nothing falls away except belief

There is a not so subtle difference between perceiving and seeing. What appears in the seeing is what we might call ‘what is’.   What appears in perception is what we might call ‘what appears to be’. The being-ness is not psychological.   The apparent becoming of a ‘person’ is entirely conceptual, psychological.  The interior is filled with ‘internal considering’ about everything and ‘people’ believe it is real.  It never was real.   We ignore the pristine clarity of non conceptual being-ness, the thoughtless reality of being and wonder why we are uneasy. You might notice a ball on  the […]

The simplicity of what is

What is, is what is.   The nature of what is remains as it is and yet in the appearance ‘what is’ appears to be ever changing. In other words what is, is the basis of what appears to be.  What appears to be is what we can describe as ‘appearance’. A mirage is an appearance of water where there is no actual water. There appears to be an infinite foray of endless details to the appearance.  Take a microscope and look at the details of cells in a leaf.  Thousands of cells each containing millions of seeming parts and […]

No merit, no demerit. Awareness cannot be an entity

Q:  Can you say anything about dense body energy and it’s sense of  mass appearing as a stuck self ? How to deal with mind/body contracted state? Thanks, F…… Reply:  Basically no one wants to let go of the ‘image of me’.  Why?   Because they are afraid that if they let go of that image (cease to refer everything to it) they will have no idea of what they are.   Nisargadatta says:  “There are no customers for this knowledge”.   (end quote) No one wants to be nothing.  Fear of being nothing keeps the illusion of being something in place.
