The skill of seeing-knowing is not the person

Pointers are like precision tools. You can ponder them or admire them – forever, with no result whatsoever. It is how they are used that counts. A pointer in the hands of a fool becomes foolishness.

An ego cannot speak or do anything.

The ego cannot speak…. for it does not exist except as an idea. No idea has any substance whatsoever….. and no concept has any power other than what you give it. What we call ego is a belief in being a ‘person’ and the persona is a mask, an image-concept – an interface between the apparent duality of ‘world and me’. I have never yet found a mask that could speak. Through non investigation, the idea of being a separate entity continues to be believed in. Many speak of love.  Sunflowers face the sun in the morning. There is only […]

One task is enough.

Your only task is to investigate whatever it is that causes unnecessary concern or worry for you……. AND……..to discover that it is always a concept or an image of self that is the root of it all. Duality is an appearance within the scope of that which is non dual. Unicity is not divided by anything. A concept cannot divide anything except another concept. The sunrise appears to divide the night from the day. One sun, one earth, one unceasing movement. Where is the division? Awareness is non dual. Mind and appearance are one.   Everything can be traced back […]

The true essence, never born, never die

Who am I? Who are you? What am I? What are you?  Who ‘can’ and who ‘can’t’?   Who ‘does’ what, to what?   Who is the ‘doer’ and what is the ‘done’ (deed)? What is separate from what? Where does this intelligence ‘come from’ if not from itself? Awareness is self-aware. Life energy is intelligence. Every cell of the body is an expression of life energy. The orchestration of all the cells of the body, the various systems of the body, all the layers of living tissues – all orchestrated like a symphony. Without the life energy, the cell, […]

Who is stuck in pure consciousness?

Q: Gilbert, I’m stuck, I don’t know who I am. There’s a lot of stuck energy in my body, I feel sort of depressed, the search, the hope is almost dead, it just goes around in loops and never results in anything. I’ve done so much spiritual work, so much psychological work. I don’t know whether to keep pushing or to just give up. Neither seems to work, to bring me freedom from suffering. I would appreciate any pointing you could offer. A: Where are you actually seeing all this psychological story FROM? You must be totally genuine in an […]

Clarity is ever fresh – one step ahead of all concepts.

All of your philosophies and trophies of attainment are stories. All of your stories, all stories, without exception are untrue – no matter how true they may appear to be. The word is not the actuality. The actuality is ever fresh, one step ahead of all words and all contemplation. The confirmation of what is true IS that which is true – and that is beyond words, silent and clearly obvious. The Great Perfection of existence is non conceptual existence. That will NEVER manifest as words, concept or images. It is the sheer clarity of clarity itself. Impossible to deny […]

Life force

The life force that appears as that body/mind pattern is not burdened by the pattern. The life force does not depend on the pattern. The pattern appears spontaneously and is only ever this livingness of this moment. This has no past and no future. It is the immediacy of life itself.   As Nisargadatta says: “If you must worship something, worship Ishwara (the life force)” – (end of quote).   It is the only currency you have.   Respect the life force – it will bring tremendous relief and reveal many insights.

AS the clarity itself – you are.

As soon as you think about awareness, it is an object and memory throws up concepts from the past. If you were to come into existence in this instant right now, there would be no memory at all. Awareness would be present – (it is ever present everywhere and every when). You would have no labels for anything. The natural oneness of ‘everything’ would not be questioned. Seeing is happening and seeing is not post mind content. Seeing-knowing is the pristine activity of cognising. There is no entity in the seeing itself. The idea of an entity was introduced to […]

Continued conversation.

Q: Hello can we continue talking?  (from Algeria) A: Ask away… Q: I understand what you are saying : all perceptions are energy (colors, sounds, etc.) but I don’t feel it. A: Feeling is energy….You expect something other than what is? Q: That is a thought which says “feeling is energy”. A: Everything is energy…….Nothing can live without energy…….neither rocks nor sentient beings.  One energy appearing AS everything. Q: I understand that everything is energy when I go to what I learn in physics but I don’t have the experience of “everything is energy”. A: Sensations…….everything is sensation…….yes? (A movement […]
