Walking in the wind – lookin’ at the sky

  The greatest teacher of all is the Sky –  Sky knows no boundary and has no centre or point.  Right here, right now is everywhere without any condition, no past or future. Observe the sky without looking for any hidden meaning and it will reveal everything as it is. The sky has no observation tower.   Right here, right now is everywhere without any condition, past or future. Even the word ‘present’, like all words, they appear upon the cognition, they float upon emptiness. ………………………………. Walking in the Wind – by Steve Winwood (Traffic) “If I could talk to you […]

Momentary lapses of reason

Since self-centeredness is the common feature that dictates the behavior of the ‘social fabric’, any form of a message that dismisses the apparent value of ‘fixating on me’ will be dismissed very quickly by the ‘seeker of truth’ – because the seeker of truth knows nothing about truth or actual being.  Spiritual teachings that are popular, including their websites, are popular only because they include subtle ‘fodder’ for the ‘belief in me’. Thousands flock to see a guru or teacher who offers ‘hope’ for that self-centered impulse to ‘attain’ or be delivered out of suffering.   A sacred path is offered. […]

What is

Non duality is not something to attain. All striving to conceptualize what non duality is fails naturally simply because the need to conceptualize what is real is not necessary.  What is not real (me or I) cannot understand what is real.  The fabricated entity not only cannot understand anything, it cannot see, hear, taste or sense anything. The entire manifestation (universe) is pure sensation and all the forms that appear within this unicity of sensation are not actually separate.  Beyond the capacity of the intellect, the nature of sensation is boundless.  Every thought, feeling and emotion is nothing but sensation, […]

Nothing to get

The most common error, so it seems, is the belief that there is something missing and that there is something to get. The natural state is not missing, not lost.  You cannot find something that is not lost.  (The man who thought he lost his nose – he was looking past it all the time) The error is to ignore the natural state by focusing and fixating on conceptualized ‘things’ or looking for some (im)possible state that one has read about or heard someone speaking about.  Almost all the ‘teachers’ constantly talk about something to achieve, some special state where […]

What is going on?

Due to belief in things that are not real or true, confusion appears to block clarity of thinking.  It doesn’t have to be that way just as psychological suffering is unnecessary.  A little bit of investigation can clear it up.  Resistance to clearing it up is due to the fixation on ‘me’, a fabricated entity. Knowledge or so called knowledge that requires complex structures of support (a belief system) is obviously misleading. Clear and present evidence requires no belief or conceptual construct to support it.  What is clear and obvious is spontaneously clear and obvious. Many speak about having an […]

Words and meaning

In the scheme of things, everyone has subjective understanding about the meaning of words.  Some are articulate and some are less so.  Communication happens but what is communicated may be quite different to what one believes. You can form a group and get the group to discuss the meaning of a particular word. The discussion may be lengthy and heated arguments may rise up. Choose another word and the same thing can happen. Realize that very few have a clear understanding of their own language. The higgle de piggle te nature of understanding words and language is introducing sloppy communications. […]

You cannot get to non duality from duality

Mind is time. Recalling the past. Thinking about the present…. and imagining the future ARE ALL CONCEPTUAL. There is NO independent or separate intelligence IN those believed in conceptualized notions, thoughts and concepts. They are all expressions of intelligence.  In harmony with intelligence they express cleanly.  In conflict or in denial of what is true the intelligence is as though clouded or hidden as if in the confusion.  Insight releases the intelligence and the obscuration is cut through. The sun shines constantly.  A heavily overcast sky does not obscure the sunlight completely.  The luminous presence of the sun still reveals […]

Spirituality – a dream land without any foundation

Spirituality is like a Wishing Well, where every fool from far and wide throws their coins, coin after coin, with blind faith and with no clear evidence that it is an act based on anything other than erroneous beliefs and a loaded hope.  Hope in a future time when a magical shift will transform them into something wonderful. And yet the wonder of being alive now slips past their attention due to weighty dreams of some special state they just might attain, if they are good and do their hopeful practices. It is all belief in conceived notions, second hand […]

Who understands what?

Are you the body? What is the body made of?  Elements. Where did those elements come from? The planet?   Where did the planet get the elements from? The appearance of ‘becoming aware’ only appears to ‘happen’ because awareness is already present. What were you before this planet formed? When were you unaware?  What meaning can any answer have?  A story of ‘time gone by’ can only ever be told in the immediacy of right now, we call this immediacy ‘presence’. Awareness of form is spontaneous. Awareness is timeless. Simple. What is true is always simple. Complex theories, like cosmology and theology or […]

Knowing and belief

In the scheme of things, something called spirituality offers a way of seeing the world and understanding the self. Some, in the appearance of things, appoint themselves as guides, teachers or gurus.  Of course such a self appointed ‘position’ is extremely suspect.  It is very easy to lead seekers down all kinds of paths and to give them lots of tasks.  One can speak about subtle experiences that are possible and uphold a belief that a specific experience will signify the seekers readiness for attainment.  It is an ‘easy job’ due to the fact that the seekers provide all the […]
