The unchanging reality is no thing

Before words and language came along, reality ‘was’ as it is. All there ever actually is, is this ever present IS-NESS.  How could you miss this self-evident fact? Well, how? Because of belief in words and an obsession with ‘me’….that is how. Billions upon trillions of words have been uttered in thousands of languages.  Trillions of words have been written down on paper, printed in books, carved in stone, cut into wood and scratched or painted upon billions of surfaces and reality is still as it is. All personal drama and psychological suffering is due to belief in words, as if […]

Nothing is what it pretends to be

In the scheme of things almost everyone only hears what fits in with their beliefs. The clear message expressed by a clear messenger is packed with pointers. Listening from mind’s ‘me perspective’ (self-centeredness) does not allow the message to register cleanly. (The me perspective is like a child with crayons scribbling over a master piece of art work) Trying to fit new pointers into ‘old self-knowledge’ (the Me of Memory) is pointless.  Not only is there no answer in the mind, there is no true knowledge either. It is naturally seen, heard and felt, where everyone is coming from, however […]

Tripping over believed in things

The believed in entity is like a man wandering about, tripping over his own shoe laces. Oblivious to his own dilemma, he ignores the pure intelligence while he flips between dreaming of ‘tomorrow’ and being consumed by ‘yesterday’. Instead of investigating what is tripping him up, he focuses on ever new imaginary goals and blames his own problem on anything but the actual cause.  Anyone who points out that his shoe laces need tying up is either ignored or told to mind their own business. Common teachers keep engaging the believed in entity and they encourage the fixations on ‘me’ […]

Timeless awareness shines of itself

Bring your attention to the immediacy of this livingness and let all the chatter and ‘stories of me’ fade away.  Be nothing other than the unthought naked cognition, which is always present as effortless being. If you go look for hidden meanings where there are none, the mind will take the believed in ‘you’ on a journey and that is always away from the immediacy of non-conceptual awareness. If ‘you’ through ‘the belief in me’ attribute any ’cause’ to this uncaused spontaneous nature of consciousness, then ‘you’ seemingly create a puzzle for that ‘me’ and then ‘you’ wonder why ‘you’ […]

Imaginary knowledge of self

Affirmations are popular with many because it is a form of self-hypnosis.  It appears to work for a short time until ‘the shit hits the fan’ again. A man panning for gold might find some small grain size pieces in the first few days of his search.  Those grains will keep him panning for weeks and months filled with a dream, a hope of finding a lot of gold.  Seekers in the spiritual circles will go for decades with nothing but a dream and hope.   Even when faced with devastating odds, they can’t give up the dream.  All the while […]

Hearing is spontaneous

Most spiritual aspirants can’t bear to read anything that challenges their beliefs or their blind faith in some guru/teacher. The investment in imaginary progress is too much to let go of. Many praise this guru or that but I have not met even one who follows and praises their teacher or guru who is clearly not still seeking and not still full of erroneous beliefs.  Everything they say is based on belief and blind faith and imaginary progress. If that wonderful guru or teacher is so ‘amazingly clear’, why on earth has the seeking and the blind hero worship still […]

On the right side of wrong?

Whatever is necessary to dislodge the believed in entity must arise. Skipping about in the shallow waters pretending to know and pretending to be a ‘teacher’ or an ‘advanced student’ is a sure way to avoid cutting through the main cause and the main feature of psychological suffering – the me fixation. Most ‘teachers’ are clearly and obviously so full of a false self-image (behavior and attitude reveal it) it is remarkable that so few of their followers see through it.  A common intelligent non believer can see through it all instantly.  Why?  Because erroneous belief in the ‘teacher’ is […]

Beggars in disguise

99% of ‘teachers’ talk nonsense because it makes them feel important and puts food on their table. Beggars disguised as wise men or women. The greedy one’s have several mansions and property……. or own an island in the Pacific or some fancy exotic place. Why would anyone who has seen through the illusions of being separate ever keep another on an imaginary path? Some even ‘create’ a teaching they call ‘The direct path’.   Bollocks.  There is NO path whatsoever. Who, with full awareness of their true nature, can hold up a single pebble from some path they say they […]

So Obvious

How do you point out something that is so obvious, always present, has no form of its own and it is the very ‘thing’ that allows all sentience, all cognition, without it ever flinching, blurring or disappearing? It is similar to space.  The space that you experienced as a child is the same space here now.  It has not altered or changed. It is not a thing, not an object nor is it a subject. The ‘Ah ha’ moment is a spontaneous uncaused recognition of naked awareness.  It is not the result of thinking or of some effort to see, […]

Don’t believe it – know it!

Don’t believe what anyone tells you regarding possible attainment or anything about higher states of mind. Ordinary everyday awareness is the core essence and that is what the seeker overlooks constantly due to the attention being focused on seeking something that is not actually anywhere.  Seeking stems from a sense of lacking something.  You are complete irrespective of whatever concepts of lacking you may believe in.  The totality expresses as everything and everything is the totality – one without a second.  There are no parts that can be separate, except conceptually and a concept has no separate existence from the […]
