Simple – too simple for the grasping consciousness.

NOTICE for local Melbourne residents: John Wheeler will be in Melbourne from 18th to 25th September and those interested can meet him at Bob Adamson’s meetings during that period. Meetings are on Tuesday evenings, Thursday evenings and Sunday Mornings. See Bob’s website for address and times. ……………………………………………………….. The following, in part, can be listened to on the Audio page – “Gilbert’s Note 1”. There is nothing simpler than one. One without a second, that is what Advaita means. Dvaita is 2. With the A on the front it means NOT TWO. To explain it clearly they say One without a […]

Seeing is immediate. Eye cannot see eye.

The mind is time. The believed in entity is just a non-investigated habit of belief. That belief appears to want confirmation from outside about what is going on. No one can give you the answer……and any answer will be ADDED to the story of me…..however subtle the explanation may be, it will just be an addition. This ‘point’ I am speaking about is missed by just about everyone, even teachers appear to not know the subtle qualities of pure knowing and the mechanics of what is appearing to happen. Everything is Clear and Obvious – right NOW, just as it […]

Observing (seeing) is uninterrupted.

‎”People’ spend their whole lives wanting to wake up – so it seems. But are you unaware right now? Isn’t it obvious that the wakefulness is present? What is actually wrong with that wakefulness? Doubt is a thought. All the conceptualizing and the making of problems is due to misunderstanding. Stop pretending to be on a path of becoming and be what you ARE, right NOW. Now is all there IS. Someone says: “I have utmost respect for Advaita but I am a westerner. I am also influenced by my genetics, etc. I simply don’t buy that all of the […]

Gleanings from Nisargadatta – a book

1977, April 15th:  “What is the use of wearing trinkets, bangles and beads, etc?  Your true nature does not require anything.  You have to find out that the most important thing is this consciousness of I AM, and only through this is any importance given to anything else, for without this consciousness of ‘I’ there is nothing there at all.  Try to find out yourself, what you are in reality, then you will know that you need nothing.” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, a short extract from a book by Mark West, titled “Gleanings from Nisargadatta”.  I assisted in getting Mark’s […]

Remove all doubt without effort.

SEEING that the ‘me’ is only a concept is IT.   There is no one that sees that there is no ‘me’.  Everything appears in the SEEING. There is ONLY ONE seeing happening.  The ME can’t see at all.  It is just an idea, a thought.  How can a thought SEE? The problem is a repeating one. The ‘you’ that is believed in keeps asserting itself as being the ‘knower’ or the ‘seer’ etc. If it is truly seen or recognized, without a concept of being a seer, that the ‘me’ is an appearance, then that cuts through it all. (Cheese […]

Glassy Essence.

But man, proud man, Dressed in a little brief authority, Most ignorant of what he is most assured, His glassy essence, like an angry ape, Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven As to make the angels weep. – William Shakespeare. There is NO entity in the manifestation, none whatsoever. This is clear and obvious. To introduce the concept of ‘God’ is completely misleading. The most arrogant idea is “Me and God”. What we are talking about is Non Duality. There is only ONE. So if there is a God then YOU must be that GOD. Since the very concept […]

Who has a problem?

You cannot go back and live any moment in the past. It can be recalled as a memory and that memory appears in this living presence of what we call ‘now’. Whatever has been learned is available in the Totality of What IS. The implication of ‘past’ is appearing in the living presence, which is Eternity (all time) and Eternity is NOW. Eternity is not a Long Time, it is this ever present presence and that is what you are – this immediate cognition (knowing) which is not limited to language and is actually wordless and silent. Nothing ever happened […]

Speaking about reality appears difficult.

Speaking about reality or non duality appears to be difficult due to the nature of words and language. At any moment the mind can add extra details from memory, thus deviating off the line of expression, in what is being read or heard. The mind has associations with everything. When it comes to reality or No Thing, it is in poverty, so it seems. The immediate intelligence is present before any words form. Communicating that pure intelligence in any certain way is impossible and yet it appears to suffuse the expression with something beyond all qualifications. Life is present. The […]

An Archived Note on Non Duality

There is absolutely NO reason why anyone should suggest that you should commit yourself to any spiritual program or practice unless they themselves have an agenda. – What is true is as immediately available as your next breath. The mind does not need to be trained, no matter what anyone says about that. Even the essential nature of what the Buddha discovered was his own formlessness. That is the essential nature of realization. – All the rest is concepts and postponements for the mind. . . All there is, is being – seeing – knowing. These three aspects to what […]

Reality – I am THAT.

Why should anyone feel gratitude for someone who only speaks in blunt terms that appear to consistently threaten to rob you, rob you of all your favorite erroneous beliefs? The body may feel some relief once the angst slips away, the burden lifted from the carrying all that weight – the weight of the dramas of the world. But the ‘me’ idea cannot be grateful for its own undermined foundations. The love of being may express itself in any way without any prediction or prior notice. People fall over each other trying to rub shoulders with teachers and gurus who […]
