One in a million

The clear message has NOTHING for the believed an ‘entity’.  The message is for the true essence, which in most cases has been ignored so long, it barely seems to have a flicker of presence. The SEEKER appears to be bent on searching for something, anything to ADD to its own IMAGE to give it apparent substance.  Anything to be convinced about GETTING SOMEWHERE or advancing. There is nothing here for any ‘advanced soul’ – there is no soul except an image of a soul and neither the image nor the soul can be proven to exist. I say that […]

The uncompromising is obvious.

What is all this fuss about this seeking reality or truth? What you truly are is real – whatever the mind translates may be correct but it is never true – it is a re-presentation only. There is no need to search for what is true – or to search for your true self. All that is necessary is to drop all concepts and let the naked seeing, the naked knowing to be what it is. Everything is clear and obvious. There is no need to label things or imagine some state of mind that is missing. The natural activities […]

Is there resistance?

The resistance is the ‘me’. Mind is time – mind is ‘me’ –  mind is belief.  Belief is time – someone in process and memory is past. The ‘me’ is nothing but a concept or image.  It is ‘non recognition’ of our true nature. It certainly appears that it wont give up without a fight. The only reality you are absolutely certain of is the fact of your own being. (Adamson) That ‘statement’ is totally correct – it is true.   All else is conceptual and/or subject to change. Everything appears as objects and apparent events in time – Phenomena. […]

Not for sale.

There are hundreds of gurus and teachers who basically sell their teaching in various forms.  There are clear speakers who point directly.  There is actually no difference and reality is not altered one Iota by any of the activities. Now, from here, everything is clear and totally obvious.  I cannot give anyone this obvious clarity.  All that can be done is point.  If someone wants to give me ten thousand dollars for a weeks worth of un-compromised pointing in a one to one situation, sure, bring it on.  Bookings can be made via the usual email address.  I can guarantee […]

Just want to feel good.

Basically the apparent drive behind ‘Satsang’ is ‘I want to feel good about ME’.   And it works in a kind of twisted fashion.  It seems that ‘the satsang addict’ is trapped in an outer circle of longing for deliverance from suffering, caught in a gaze, looking at the centre (where the guru sits) wishing for an impossible ‘event’.  If there is singing (Bhajans) it helps to get the body feeling good, opens the lungs and provides a sense of belonging.  The problem usually is that life sucks and the shit hits the fan too often.  The ‘me’ just wants […]

As I look around this space – with no-thought.

Michael:  I feel separate – why? Gilbert: There is no separation.  It appears that everything is separate – it APPEARS that way – all appearance only.  One seeing. Feeling follows thought.  By believing in the ideas of being separate, the feeling follows naturally – but it is based on a thought only. Even so, intelligence is ‘doing’ or appearing AS everything. Only the mind ‘creates’ TWO-ness. Stop thinking about it and SEE.  Pause thought and let the seeing be naked. In that clear space-like awareness, seeing is happening. Look around in that space. Isn’t it empty? Yet there is an […]

Response to reading e-Book

Email:  Dear Gilbert, The expressions in your e-book demolish every belief in process. It is written as if it directly communicates with ‘whatever thought about a story’ comes up – and immediately stops the process of getting lost in translation. A great openness seems then to be available, although always present. Astounding… What I am is not to be found in any concept and that is, where I always looked (previously). That (not finding) is what suffering is really made of – the looking in concepts – into the concepts of ‘teachers’, persons ‘I love’, or any other opinion I […]

Where are you seeing from?

  Where is the activity of seeing actually taking place? Is there a ‘seer’ that has any substance? Without a thought, does ‘seeing’ disappear? No, seeing remains.  It does not depend on thought.  We say we can see our thoughts but it is just a saying, just words.  Words are vibrations.  We cannot see words unless they are written somewhere.  We express ourselves through ‘word’ and ideas.   No one has ever seen a naked idea or thought. The idea that I am the ‘seer’ or the ‘thinker’ is just another thought. Many things are assumed to be true, when […]

Correspondence #22

R……writes: Gilbert,  I have written and rewritten this email twice – everything that comes out on the screen just seems as more mental bullshit.  That necessity of writing long emails demonstrating my understanding is being seen. It is not about learning anything, but about unlearning, letting go of all knowledge and of that sense that there is someone who knows. What is going on RIGHT NOW?  That is where the looking has to be.  This first instant of seeing which is never moved away from.  Who is there to look? – even for this moment to be looked at, there […]
