As a child.

As a child I would sit looking into the hot coals of the fireplace. I saw many things come and go. Creatures of all kinds. Faces and places would spontaeously appear and disappear. Now I am grown old(er) I see a world in this Cosmic Fire. All manner of drama appears and disappears. The same eyes behold the ever changing images. The mind no longer tries to make meaning from these fleeting images. No Dragons haunt this clarity of seeing-knowing. The waking state is much the same as the dream state. The same intelligence abides beyond the limitations of the […]

Words.

Basically there is one ‘thing’ to recognize. The mind translates the pure functioning of seeing into a concept – “I see”. The concept “I see’ cannot see – it is just a concept of seeing. The mind translates the pure function of thinking into “I think” (Therefore I am). The thought “I think” cannot think. The manifestation (phenomena) spontaneously appears without labels. Every word you know has been learned. The word is never the ‘thing’ it refers to (except the word ‘word’, if you wish to be pedantic). The unspoken word (thought) is a subtle vibration, energy appearing as a […]

Unhappy ‘self’.

The Calvinistic tendencies of torturing oneself are the bondage of self. Take a good look at tiger. When you look into the face of tiger, if the tiger is healthy, there will be no fear to be seen. A beaten tiger will appear to have lost it’s ‘shining’. Society can be cruel and most dominant. Mankind wants to conquer nature – but nature will always crush anything that opposes it. Ownership is a concept. The ‘prison’ of the ‘self’ is made of concepts and belief. Do not get embroiled in the affairs of others. Mind your own business – take […]

Can you?

Can you hear silence? Can you see emptiness? Can you touch nothing-ness? Can you grasp consciousness? Can you see yourself? Can you stop thinking? Can you stop seeing? Can you stop hearing? Can you be something that you are not? Can you become something other than what you are? Can you DO anything at all? Can you as a believed in separate ‘thing’ ever find wholeness? Reality is indescribable. And the pure insight will never be captured by words or ideas. We wrap our mind translations with pretty paper and ribbons. And offer them up. When the recipient opens the […]

Short conversation may be all that is necessary

Doubts and questions can be dealt with very efficiently, thus opening up a clear view. If there is a genuine impulse to really see through the believed in ‘entity’ a few minutes is all it takes. I would not say this if it were not true. It depends on how genuine you are. The pointing can put ‘you’ on the spot. The mind’s tendencies can be seen for what they are. One cannot do this for oneself so easily, if at all. Nothing for any me, here or there. Clear seeing is already happening.

The Dreamtime

All states of mind, waking state, sleep state, dream state, deep sleep state are equal. It is all energy moving upon emptiness. That movement or apparent movement ‘creates’ the world, whether it is called the so-called real world or a dream world. The Australian Aboriginals call it ‘The Dreamtime’. In the legend, a mythical creature called the rainbow serpent goes underground and sleeps……..it dreams all the creatures, man, the animals, trees and the landscape etc. There is no way out of the dream in the dream. What you truly are is not in the dream. The impressions of the dream […]

So many words.

Now that we have enough fish in the net……..it is time to be efficient and free them one by one………so it seems…….as a figure of speech. There seems to be a lot of shit going down lately, everywhere – but of course it is just relativity – .and nothing is truly happening. ‘They’ all say that that is boring……ha. Imagine investing everything you have in some big event and no one turns up. No profit, nothing gained. No one to clap and no one to boo or sneer.. Even the currency invested turns out to be counterfeit. Hmmm. So many […]

The invisibility of oneself.

Everything is contained in the seeing. The sensations of the body give the impression of ‘something located’ in space. The apparent duration of contemplation gives a sense of ‘time’. By investigating all these sensations and concepts and by eliminating the associations of attaching some idendity to them, the open view expands naturally. Whatever appears MUST be registering ‘somewhere’, that is logical. But where are these impressions of sensations or any impressions at all, where are they actually registering? If you exist then surely you must know the answer. The mind will attempt to answer this. Where are those apparent answers […]

It is so simple – it is ‘out of our hands’.

Yes, and in fact we don’t have to do anything at all. Nisargadatta called the body the food body. A living supply of self-aware energy. Organic life on Earth is a thin film of energy arranged like a layer of transformational substances. A film or layer specifically ‘in place’ for the exchange of infinitely diverse frequencies of cosmic ‘rays’ – flowing back and forth between heavenly bodies. Self-Sustaining. Nothing is lost. You could say that Organic Life is the lungs for the Earth….eg: the Amazon Jungle transforms carbon dioxide into oxygen on a massive scale. The Pulsation of LIFE is […]

It is not a game.

The “Who am I?” question goes rancid real quick. Yet there are folks who have been asking that same question for decades. Just like the ‘methods’ and ‘practices’ it goes stale, it turns into a mechanical device – one that is devoid of any usefulness. The mind will go on and on coiming up with more answers and more questions. So, who are you? There is no choice between three answers and you cannot call a friend. No life lines are provided. The only use the question “Who am I?” has, is to turn the consciousness around….. In the clear […]
