Nothing in it for me.

Contriving The persona (person) is a mask. Contriving to convince others that ‘my understanding is excellent’ is a common feature for self-centred seekers, blind to their own fixation on ‘me’. If only they could see their obsession with me clearly, they might have a chance but the self-centredness is fortified by a private and secret fear of being exposed. In spiritual circles, a facade of ‘beautiful concepts’ masks what is going on below the surface.  A facade of selflessness cannot hide the contriving persona of the anxious aspirant, so driven by neediness and wanting.  A lot of energy goes into […]

What is true?

Primal Om   Realising that one has not actually acquired anything (nothing whatsoever) through any spiritual practice or any method is touching upon ‘truth’. If you pause the thinking and look into yourself with a wholehearted clarity of simple awareness, it is quite obvious that nothing has been achieved, nothing has been acquired – and that there is no entity present and nowhere for any believed in entity to take a stand or claim anything in this clarity of naked cognition.  In it, there is nothing wrong and nothing needs to be fixed.  Like a crystal ball is empty, one can recognise […]

Infinite Sky – no limits

The smallest contains the largest, just as the smallest fraction of time contains eternity. No boundary, no centre, no circumference, no point, no line – no thing. Life expresses itself as dualism.   The appearance of two, where there is only one. Life is not a simplistic ‘black or white’, ‘either or’ set of limitations.   Life is neither ‘right or wrong’.   Life is.   These posts are not meant to be some kind of gospel truth.  They are merely an expression, spontaneously written.  Not important or special in any way.  You are not expected to believe anything written […]

The luminous emptiness of no mind

Where did you acquire all the words that you use everyday?  The language you use, where did you acquire that?  Do you use language or does language use you? Does your culture dictate your beliefs? How is meaning ascribed to any particular word and/or its use?  What comes first, word or meaning? Is your identity relying upon a story, a narrative?  Who is the narrator of the ‘story of me’?   What is present when the narrator is silent?  Upon ‘what’ do all impressions register clearly and precisely before discriminating mind translates and alters those impressions?  Does mind alter the […]

Reality, no more – no less.

One moment of self-realisation is eternity The word ‘moment’ implies time and a series of moments imply duration.   The word ‘one’ implies two.  Two implies more than one.  Wholeness is all inclusive.  Wholeness cannot be divided.  Duality implies a separation of wholeness (non duality or reality) and there cannot be any duality in non duality (reality).  There can only ever be one reality.  Reality is all inclusive – so everything is real but not as it appears to be (duality).  In essence all is of one essence.  ‘Time’ is a seeming division of wholeness or totality.  In essence everything […]

Reflections upon the Dimensionless

Reflections upon the dimensionless How simple can it be expressed?   There are so many teachings, so many concepts and so many beliefs.  It is all clouding up the immaculate mirror of naked awareness…. or so it seems.  Wakefulness is self-shining, luminous and self-evident.  Taken for granted, no one notices its immaculate nature. There is not one single method that can wake up a dream character.  The indulgence in concepts of personal spiritual progress is a dream.  If anything, it is a moving away from the natural perfection of what is. How is this not recognised? The mind says ‘Yes But…..’  Belief covers over […]

The un-think-able

Wakefulness is never a ‘person’ The person is a dream character The innate knowing, the indisputable fact of being, ‘I am’, is not relative to apparent phenomena.  The knowing, the naked ‘I am’ (being-ness), does not need anything added to it.  Nothing can be added to that and nothing can be taken away from that.  This knowing is an activity, not a static acquisition, not a result or product of the intellect.  Thoughts about this activity of knowing are thoughts appearing in or on the activity of knowing.  The naked cognition, upon which all information registers, is like a substratum… […]

‘You’ are dreaming a dream.

the dream – nothing stays the same! no-thing stays the same!   The entire manifestation is one energy, which is expressing and appearing as duality. Everything is that singular energy, which we can call ‘essence’. It is the same energy that appears as the North Pole and the South Pole of this planet and every magnet. The label ‘north’ or ‘south’ are relative to each other.  Every stick has two ends.  This same singular (universal) energy  appears as a sperm and an ovum – the apparent beginning of your existence.  It is the same energy that appears as anger, as […]

The Hook without bait

The Hook The content of mind is a reflection of the changing nature of phenomena, none of it can stand alone, just as a reflection in a mirror cannot appear without the mirror. The utter simplicity of being, our true essence, is that which all things are reflected in or upon.     ……………….. A leaf is not the tree but you can see the basic pattern of the tree in the leaf. ………………. Wholeness is energy moving through all the patterns and the patterns are nothing but energy.   ………………. Every thought, idea, concept or memory is intelligence, energy, appearing as something, […]

The Bull

The Bull Q: “You like it strong?” A: “Yeah, strong is good!” ………………. The image of self can appear to take many forms.  Oil paint can appear as many convincing shapes and forms.   Famous paintings imitate 3 dimensions very convincingly but it is only pigment and oil on a 2 dimensional surface. The arrogance of self-centredness is due to belief in something that is not real, something that takes the credit for qualities that it can never have.   This I know first hand…. and through many years of observing so-called people.   To impartially observe the responses of ‘people’ […]
