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 […]

Reality is not obscured.

Reality is what is. Because reality is all there is, it is all inclusive. Every atom of the universe ‘appears’ in THAT. The energy appearing as a dream is THAT. Because the WHOLE is suffused with this ‘knowing presence’ there is no inside or outside of THAT. The curious thing is that every pattern or form is just as it is. It can’t be any different. Who wants it to be different? If a thought appears to WANT to change something, it is what is. If that thought follows through and some apparent change happens to appear, it is what […]

Reality

What you are experiencing right now, is reality. Reality is what is. Reality cannot be different to what is. Any problem sensed about what is, is a perception only.   The wanting to change what is is the problem of a non existent entity. There is no relativity.  None whatsoever.   Relativity is appearance only. Reality appears AS the relative. The reference point of ‘me’ is an invalid reference point.

Your own radiance is invisible.

Awareness is SELF-AWARE – self-shining. I do not know myself as anything. Any thing. I am No Thing…..the mind cannot grasp THAT. The hand appears in space and tries to grasp space…just as the mind appears in awareness and tries to grasp awareness. The concept ‘awareness’ is not awareness – well it is but only as an appearance, as a concept. There is no separation here. That is not a concept. The timeless is the negation of the concept of time….but it is not something that one does……..it is reality. No one becomes reality – all that appears to happen […]

The world may be mad – do you have to follow suit?

“I have nothing to say – there is no one talking” – U.G. Krishnamurti. He was, in the appearance of things, uncompromising and cut away the bullshit.  However, he was not popular – probably because he showed that those who ‘teach’ love are perpetuating the violence that such addictive conceptualizing ’causes’. The mind only goes in circles and it is all ‘past’. Every word you use has been learned (past) and you believe that you will solve all your problems with conceptualizing.  It is madness, and the state of the world shows what this self-centered activity ‘brings’. The ONLY way […]

The Pied Piper.

Question: What is this knowing? It sounds like some kind of treasure that’s sitting in plain view and yet you can’t see it. Seems bizarre. Reply: It is said that it is in plain view – and yet ‘we all’ miss it. Try as hard as you want and it cannot be seen. Such pointing is frustrating to the ‘seeker’. What the ‘seeker’ does not realize is that the seeking, the search is the problem. The moment ‘you’ try to see it, a formation of a ‘seer’ (subject) appears. The translation of ‘seeing’ by mind obscures the seeing via the […]

The active and the passive are poised in this non event.

The belief in being an individual is just a belief – believed in because it has not been investigated. The common belief is that I am someone who is compelled to act out a drama, make choices at every turn in the road. The belief is that I am a seeker looking for myself, my own truth of self. The belief is that it is MY reality and that I must discover my true nature. It is all concepts clouding what is actually a clear view. In the appearance of things, I, the writer of this note, was pointed to […]

Knock Knock. Anyone there?

What is presenting itself recently is the idea of going to the UK and Scotland with an additional possible visit to Canada and the US.  I have no idea of what may come of it but the basic idea is to meet a few friends and possibly have talks with anyone who wishes to explore their own questions and doubts, in a one to one meeting.  I do not have any interest in crowd dynamics and the ‘person up front’ syndrome.  What is most efficient in my experiences is an intimate exchange where the mind is brought to a place […]
