The Mountain is just a Hill.

Apparently Mooji is holding meetings near Ramanashram in Tamil Nadu, India. Some 200-250 are drawn there each day. Anyone who is drawn to that place because of adhoration for the guru is missing the point. New gurus who take advantage of the fact that many make their way to the ashram are nothing but clever salemen or saleswomen. Pilgramages are arranged just like a travel agent would. Pamflets and sales pitches. Promises of enlightenment in a special place at a special time. It is all bunkum. It is rather pathetic to see how ‘the message’ gets turned into a ‘product’ […]

Love again

Many speak of love as if it is a thing to have or acquire in copius quantities. The implication is that there is a lack of love. Many speak about Unconditional love as if it is a thing that they have and that you should cultivate. Such nonsense has always sounded like a cracked bell to my ears. Recently an insight into this question about love ‘happened’. I will say only this about the said insight: LOVE is NOT binding. What is usually experienced and spoken of, under the name of love, has a binding nature. Exclusivity or the effect […]

Love

The love light in your eyes shines beyond beauty, star or gem. It melts me cold cold heart and warms me weary soul. Ya robbed me of my trusty words, no find, no splutter, n then. I’m lost and found… and lost again within this vast-less-ness, whole. How did I miss it, obvious n clear, this light of life… so close, so near. You must think me such a fool.. n tis true enough, I know, we know. It’s the thinking that is so fearful-fearsome, that makes this life so tough, but Oh…… The light by which I see, I […]

Do not read this note – ‘YOU’ wont like it.

The appearance is one appearance. It is not what it appears to be. In Essence it is reality – One Reality – One Essence – One Appearance. NO Separation. You are THAT. The world appears – where? Where does the world appear? Out there as ‘not I’ separate from this ‘I’ here? Separation means, in effect, vulnerability. But for whom? By taking yourself to be a limited creature in the world you not only miss what is being pointed out – you suffer unnecessarily. Psychological suffering is unnecessary. That is not merely said for the fun of it. It is […]

Ordinary Awareness

Ordinary everyday awareness – common to all is what the seeker ignores without realizing that what they are seeking, without ever finding, is a believed in concept of HOW things should be.  Self-centeredness. Many names have been added onto this ordinaray awareness. Enlightenment, Nirvana, Moksha and umpteen other names. What meaning do any of these words have? Without ordinaray awareness no word could have any meaning whatsoever. If you pay close attention to what the mind does with these fancy concepts, it may be very revealing. Let’s take the word enlightenment for instance. You have heard the word a thousand […]

It is remarkably available – yet few truly wish for it.

A tired and weary donkey, tethered to a treadmill. His movements can be easily predicted. A donkey roaming in the fields of freedom is unpredictable. Why waste your time studying the habits of a trapped mouse? Awareness is spontaneously active and unpredictable. The joy of being simple and free from erroneous beliefs is remarkably available to all. Yet few recognize their own freedom. Why? Isn’t it because the mind insists on being a ‘person’ – something that has no true individuality at all. Why suffer unnecessarily merely because you have not investigated that ‘me’, the one who suffers? Those who […]

Well, you have found your way here.

What are you looking for? Some want to ‘argue the point’. They are bored with life and themselves and look for someone to engage in animated argument… about life. They hold so dearly to the concept that they are intellectuals. Bright intellectuals. It is a competition for them and the bias for them is ‘I am right’ and ‘you are wrong’. They do not see the mechanical nature of their own postulated situation. Feeling good about being right is an addiction. Feeling bad about being wrong is a wounded feeling for the believed in ‘me’. What is true is not […]

Everything registers cleanly and without hindrance.

Everything registers cleanly and without hindrance. The impressions of life register without distortion in this undeviating immediacy. Discriminating mind is bi-polar. Locked into its own discriminations it can only swing back and forth like a pendulum. What is being introduced is information that suggests a tri-polar equation. This is merely a concept being put forward to aid a possible insight. Right and wrong are in opposition to each other and the struggle between good and bad appears to be eternal. The middle ground where the two can meet on equal ground is called neutral ground. The impartiality of pure seeing […]

The seeker is a fabrication – from nothing.

The spiritual realm is full of pretenders – Nice folk patting each other on the back and telling each other ‘what a wonderful spiritual person you are’ (just like me). Underneath that facade there is the usual competition going on. Lots of gossip and rumours spread around like wild fire. Often there is a teacher at the head, one who is merely pretending to be holier than his flock. He is never challenged about his fabricated persona or if he is then the mob turn on the challenger and they get ousted pretty damn quick. I did visit various groups, […]

Where are you? Really? Watch this video

You are the unmoving witness. You might say “I come back sooner or later”. That which comes and goes is not what you are. Recognize this: It is the mind translating which is believed to be what ‘i am’. It is not what you are. What you are is silent – wordless. In ‘deep space’, where are all the words? It is all an appearance. ALL of it. The Single Essence does not appear as a thing. It is No Thing. Everything registers on what you are – which is formlessness itself. It is pure cognition and nothing other than […]
