What more do you want?

What more do you want? How many roses must you smell before you know the rose? How many mornings must you greet before you realize that the mind is but a mechanical thing turning like a wheel? What is it that you want? What is it that you lack? Capacity to understand? All the drama of all the world amounts to nothing but a play of the elements. The wheel turns and all things considered good and true are pitted against that which is deemed to be bad and untrue. Neither heaven nor hell exist anywhere – but are existing […]

Radical Difference – is an illusion.

There is an apparent radical difference between what is usually offered up as a ‘teaching’ and what is basically being offered here and on the Urban Guru Cafe. This website, nor the UGC are not separate or particular ‘things’ with any attributes of their own. They are merely vehicles. What I am getting at is that the usual ‘teachings’ offer an emphasis on a way to MAKE a better ME. Which is merely the vulnerable adjusts of the appearance. It appears to be useful when things are out of kilter. The idea is to FIX the me…..to make you feel […]

Monkey Puzzle Mind.

“There a two kinds of people – those who divide the world into two kinds of people – and those who don’t” that is a quote from someone, whose name I forget, because I put them in the wrong compartment in memory. Basically SEEING-KNOWING is happening, and this pure functioning is not in time. Whatever appears as a process is just mind stuff. The false identity is woven into that same stuff. When the false is seen through, it is all known to be a transparent appearance with NO substance. This seeing-knowing is natural – it is happening now – […]

Tremendous Efforts.

“Unless you make tremendous efforts, you will not be convinced that effort will take you nowhere. The self is so self-confident that unless it is totally discouraged it will not give up. Mere verbal conviction is not enough. Hard facts alone can show the absolute nothingness of the self-image.”  – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Thank you – Nigel sent me this quote.

One LIFE.

There is nothing more to get once this One LIFE is recognized to be what I AM. It is so simple and yet so ‘seemingly’ hidden by all of phenomena, no one seems to recognizes it. Who cares? The pointing is simple…..One LIFE…you are THAT. No separation. What more do you need?

Only THAT – new book on Sailor Bob Adamson

The message is not about selling anything to anyone – it is the natural recognition, which does not require any purchases…and yet…..We have all purchased so many things that hold a promise and quite often we are disappointed – everything falls flat. Well, a new book is now available. Firstly, let me say that this book contains material that is excellent. In the last two thirds of the book, Bob outlines all the points that are necessary to know. Even one paragraph could be enough, if one were to really examine what Bob is pointing out. This is an excellent […]

Nothing new can come from mind.

Those who use the words ‘intellectual understanding’ are missing the point that the intellect is nothing but the ‘acquired mind’, which cannot truly understand anything. It is clearer to say that a resonance happens – a ‘bell rings’ – a sense that something is true. If one stays stuck to the limited beliefs (the intellect), things will simply go around and around – shape shifting the same maze, over and over. The mind is like a geometric maze with moving parts. ‘We’ can spend a whole lifetime moving the parts of the maze in the intellect and nothing changes. The […]

The frustration of seeking.

Compassion may appear as an exposure of erroneous belief. Some ‘teachings’ appear to be clean and clear and yet they are full of erroneous concepts, which only keep the seeker seeking more, going over the same old ground looking for an answer in the mind. There is no answer in the mind and nothing has to be changed. Everything changes spontaneously without any ‘doer’ – the ‘doer’ appears ‘after’ the ‘fact’. ‘We’ overlook the clear and obvious nature of awareness and run away with endless concepts of ‘becoming’ something other than what we ARE. This activity of seeking is frustrating […]

A question & reply appear as duality yet both point at THAT.

Question: Do you experience the “knowing” continually, i.e. (for want of a better phrase), that state of being or awareness? Or is it transient, requiring reminding your “self”?………it’s difficult putting this stuff into words! Reply: Look at your question closely. The answer is in it. Who wants to know? Isn’t the knowing present? All experiences are a translation of the mind and are already ‘the past’ – a description with words, words that have all been learned in the ‘past’. True Understanding is wordless. The immediate unceasing experiencing is wordless in its immediacy and is truly uninterrupted – it is […]

Identity and Boundaries.

These ‘subjects’ of identity and boundaries are mostly avoided. Yet one could say that they hold a key to the basic problem of why there is so much violence and destruction. From a false identity the mind projects boundaries that don’t exist. There is so much invested in these ‘things’ that it is not spoken of for long because ‘at ever turn in the road’, there is resistance. People get very angry when their core issues are tweaked. In the martial arts there a ‘secret’ moves that can disable the opponent in a few seconds. These moves are not allowed […]
