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 […]

Enquiry via chat on FB.

Greetings from Algeria: Q: Hi Gilbert A: Hallo Q: I am glad to to chat directly with you. What is going on here right now : Ordinary life, there is knowing of all what is, of “goods” and “bads”. There is no special state, no state of biss or happiness. A: Everything is as is. Mind may want it to be different…….but it is as it is. Relax. Be what you are. I am not a teacher. I am simply pointing out what is clearly obvious ‘here’. Q: Yes, mind is expecting to see “what is imagined” about enlightenment (freedom, […]

Forever changeless. Nothing gained, nothing lost.

There once was a very clear messenger who had little material wealth. His family thought he was just an old eccentric fool and they did not listen to his message with any respect or fervour. When the old man died, the family fought over the small fortune that the old man left behind. The fighting was bitter and long. Many members of the family became ill from the constant conflict and some even died from negative emotions. Some folks who considered themselves as devotees of the old man, custodians of the message, also fought like cats and dogs and the […]

Millions searching – thousands teaching – very few realising.

Sally wrote: “Gilbert – I’m hearing you. I don’t trust a word I say about any of this, but I read your words every day. The reason? Because they are sharp! They cut to what I know already to be what I’m looking for…and then there is suddenly nothing to find and it is obvious and clear. It’s as if there is still undergrowth that I need to scythe through…”   You must SEE that the search never actually started. To ‘do that’ the mind must be emptied of concepts. This can be done, not by any ‘you’ but by […]

All problems are due to perception – no?

All of ‘our problems’ are due to two non existent things. 1. Identity. 2. Boundary.   You may perceive that there is an identity somewhere in the body.  But can you find it? If it is real, surely it would be the very thing that you would be most certain of.   You may be certain of it as a certitude of being but it has no actual substance.  That in itself is a potent pointer.  Probably the most potent. Boundary.  Close you eyes and drop all concepts and thoughts.  If thoughts arise, let them come and go.  Be the […]

The true message is like a Thief – it robs you of belief

I will not add something ‘important’ to this natural existence nor add anything to any teaching. These words are like a thief and a sense of loss may appear spontaneously. Self importance is obvious and calculating and is always adding something to this no thing-ness, this ‘I am-ness’.   I am that which neither comes nor goes. The source of all ‘sense of time’ is timeless-ness. The sense of all movement appears upon stillness and stillness is nothing, no thing. This nothing is ‘no thing’ which is that which is the actuality and that is the cognition itself. The energy […]

Without compromises – without false promises.

No one can get from duality to non duality. There is no duality in non duality. If you start with a concept, instead of an insight, the mind will unfold into ever new concepts. All the waves that form upon the surface of the ocean, do not alter the nature of the ocean (water).  All the conceptualising, arguments, proposed rights and wrongs, do not alter the true nature of mind, which is timelessly clear and empty. The assumption of personal identity is based on something ‘learned’. Before that body was formed there was no personalised sperm deciding to get ahead […]

Natural noticing.

It is the simplest of noticing. Nothing complicated about it. You don’t have to learn how to ‘do it’.  A baby notices with great ease. It ‘happens’ naturally without ever running out of steam. It is here the moment you open your eyes in the morning, even before you open your eyes in the morning. How anyone could convince you that you have to learn how to live an awakened life is truly unbelievable. You are not unaware, right now. Why do you make a problem out of the simplest of noticing? ….your own natural existence is clearer than the […]

Words may be useful.

“There is NO separation…and a concept NEVER EVER divided the spacious nature of reality.” ” A little drama in the mind turns into a full theatrical display…with tears and laughter. Did you actually DO any of it? ” “There is no ‘I’…there is just knowing.” “Cease to claim things for an imaginary ‘I’ and life rolls along very well.” “The ordinary knowing, active with ‘you’ now, embraces the entire universe….there is no boundary.” “The knowledge ‘I am’ is the warmest knowledge you can know.” “Seeing is happening. Whatever SEEMS to obscure the seeing must be seen as a transient appearance.  All […]
