The message is not something new.

Just to show that the message is not new, here is a quote from an ancient text.   It is still as fresh as the day it was written hundreds of years ago.   “Should your mind wander away, do not follow it, whereupon your wandering mind will stop wandering of its own accord. Should your mind desire to linger somewhere, do not follow it and do not dwell there, whereupon your mind’s questing for a dwelling-place will cease of its own accord. Thereby you will come to possess a non-dwelling mind – a mind which remains in the state […]

The First Instant – El Primer Instante – e-book

  The first published text by myself, Gilbert, was The First Instant – a collection of notes – The manuscript started as ‘notes to myself’ because of the profound nature of the regular insights.  Now the book is available as an e-book in Spanish thanks to Fernando Rozas, a friend of Gilbert.  The English version is also on the book page for purchase.  There are other e-books in Spanish and Portuguese.  Dutch versions may be finished in due course.       ‘One Moment’ is a CD of pointers.  See the Books and CD page of this website for details.

Use words – do not let them use you!

Many believe that they are trapped but they do not understand the nature of the trap. Many seek what they already are.   If they (you) do not recognise that they (you) are already what they (you) seek, despite being told a hundred times – what can be done – except to point in various ways until something penetrates, something resonates in being – and the true and clear resonance reaches beyond the body mind.  Reverberations in the intellect lose their force in a flash and so are impotent.  This is why most teachings lead to nothing except more belief […]

Erroneous ‘self-knowledge’ is a clumsy trap.

The past is dead and gone.  Yesterdays insight is useless.   Ten minutes ago or ten years ago is the same.   Are you impatient for some ‘event’ to happen?  If so, then it is that very concept that keeps you trapped. Right effort appears spontaneously and any contrived effort is doomed to fail. The idea of ‘me’, the me sense, permeates the effort and so claims any result, (so-called) negative or positive.  From the first step, the contrived effort is doomed to fail. Many IMAGINE success and yet they suffer repeatedly – because it is all about ME, me, […]

Too simple – too easy – everyone misses it.

By simply witnessing the disappearance of a thought, one must be present as thoughtless reality.   The habit of believing that thought is real, one may miss the subtle living presence that is thought free.  Some call it the natural state (nature).  With a simple intention to watch the mind, the intention may well stop the habitual identification with thought.  Non conceptual awareness is not something that one can observe – it is the observing itself.  ‘When’ the mind has tried all avenues in an effort to grasp the nature of simply being conscious, then an effortless witnessing may well […]

Just see what appears to happen.

Window on the World – Photo by Gilbert The world and the mind are one and the same.  The world is the mind and the mind is the world.  The mind is concepts.  The world is concepts.  What you are seeing is not the world.  The world is perception based on memory.  The nature of ‘what is’ is ‘seeing-knowing’.  The nature of the world is a story of time and space.  Time and space are the same, both are appearance only.   What appears, disappears instantly. Watch the mind and see what happens.  It is all appearance.  The world is apparently […]

Natural state.

The natural state is a way of describing the manner in which the essence of life expresses itself.  Nature has no reference points in conflict with other reference points. It has no reference points at all.  Nature flows like a river.  When you were a young baby you did not have any words.  The natural state of a baby is clearly obvious and natural.  A baby displays many qualities of consciousness, without language or words.  A parent may feel good about the first words their child ‘says’ or imitates.  You may remember early school classes where you learned to give […]

Richard Miller interview with Gilbert

Comment on video: “Just watched this interview and you were delightful, genuine. I had always thought you were an aggressive advaita grump just from reading your comments to others across the www. Another concept shattered!” – Joseph “The written word can be very misleading – there is no tone of voice and the face expression is not visible. A lot of angst ‘happens’ over nothing, very often” – Gilbert For Never Not Here video podcast site fans – Richard Miller interviews Gilbert.  How we utilise the resource of ‘reality’ is up to the approach we take?  The interview has some […]

The sum total of all there is

The sum total of all there is, is not knowledge.  It is silent being.   How could there be more mis-understanding then understanding? How could this moment ever be divorced from the totality of what is?   How could a tiny fragment of the wholeness be separate from the wholeness, in any way shape or form? Your own perfection is a unique expression of the totality.   Whether the expression is imagined to be positive or negative, it can only be imaginary. You are existence itself.     Transient points of view have no substance.   Seeing the truth of […]
