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 […]

The tragedy of erroneous beliefs.

It is all appearance only. Every particle is an appearance. No matter how close you look at things, nor how far away, it is all appearance. Everything appears in the seeing. Seeing does not go out from your eyes and grasp objects, then return with information. Seeing is everywhere and every thing. No separation. If you can grasp that ‘truth’ many erroneous ideas will fall away instantly. How many clouds have there been in the sky? Do any of them have any distinct and lasting characteristics as a separate entity? Trillions upon trillions of clouds have gathered and swirled around, […]

Analysis Paralysis.

I am not interested in analysis. All perceptions are in the mind. Whatever you perceive ‘out there’ is actually ‘in there’ (which can only be ‘here’). Yet there is no inside nor any outside. Just this presence, unbound and obviously clear. In fact there is no ‘there’ and to see this clearly, walk over ‘there’ and see that it is actually HERE. There is no center and no boundary. Identity and Boundary are the corner stones of a castle made of dreams. The apparent demonstration of an ‘ego here’ is pedagogical. If you cannot see your own ego tendencies, then […]

Uncompromised Pointing is rarely acceptable to the ‘seeker’.

Of course the ‘seeker’ is nothing but a misunderstanding and the ‘me’ cannot see or know anything. Who does not understand? Everything is clear and obvious just as it is. Belief in ANY thought as being something that is separate and having some substance of its own is delusional – yet very common. The One appears AS everything – there is nothing Wrong anywhere…….except thought makes it appear to be so. The basic error is the belief in a self-center that actually, ACTUALLY has NO substance whatsoever. If you investigate this single FACT, the delusions of being separate disappears forever […]

Seeing through the fixation of ‘me’.

“This Consciousness is hard to bear, which is why people become involved in worldly activities”. “Self-Knowledge is beyond all words and concepts” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. We may sense the pain in others and we may wish to ease the pain in others. But the problem is closer to ‘home’. The ’cause’ for psychological pain is belief in something that does not exist. If you have a broken bone, you can pin point the pain spot. Psychological pain does not have a ‘location’, a spot, and if you explore that apparent spot consciously, it is naturally seen through. The energy […]

The Impartial Mirror – awareness.

Recognition of our true nature happens because ‘it’ is already known. Even in an ordinary sense, you cannot recognize something unless you have already ‘seen’ or ‘known’ it before. What you ARE, you have always been – recognizing it as being naked and unadorned awareness, is a silent, wordless recognition. It cannot be explained or described. All that is happening is knowing – the activity of knowing is ALL inclusive. Everything is THAT. How could it be any other way? As long as you worship any ‘other’ (person, thing, guru, teacher, teaching or path) you will be bound by illusion. […]

Who is frustrated with the investigation? Seeing is instant.

The investigation is not a gradual process. It can appear as a process of elimination. “I am not this – I am not this”…etc. The pure seeing is not identified with anything and can never be identified with anything or nothing. Seeing is seeing. everything appears in the seeing. That should be plainly obvious and it is plainly obvious, if you drop all words and concepts about the seeing. The mind is nothing but thought, conceptualizations, memory and images. A thought cannot SEE. This point is often missed. Dividing the mind up into ‘parts’ is actually only more conceptualizing.

Shine a light.

You are not a name or a ‘person’. Whoever you believe yourself to be is just a story. It may be a good one for sure, it maybe the best – but it is a story, none the less. Without words, where is time and story? Every story begins with “Once upon a time………” Memory only lives in the immediacy. Turn away from memory and what is left? What past is there without words or thought? Some may dismiss this as sheer nonsense but if you really drop all thoughts and cease from referring to memory – all that is […]

One Glimpse is enough.

Everything is appearance only. The Essence of everything is beyond the capacity of the intellect. In its pure nature it is the simplicity of the naked knowing, an activity of the same energy that ‘creates’ the entire appearance in this immediacy called LIFE. You cannot be separate from THAT. You are THAT and could not ever be possibly apart from THAT. Whatever the mind reveals as thought, concept or image is nothing other than THAT, appearing as ‘something different’. It cannot be different, though it appears AS all the diversity in the APPEARANCE of things. One Signature is written as […]
