Crumbled leaf blowing in the wind

Belief is less than a dry crumbled leaf blowing in the wind. (Phenomena – That which appears to be) Once you have seen the falseness of something it is impossible to believe in it ever again. Knowing the truth of it, even if you try as hard as you can, you will not be able to believe in it again.  There is NO choice in the matter.   Innately and essentially we all know the truth of things – however belief in words and labels introduces obscurations in the intellect – not in reality. All mental constructs are similar in […]

Where are ‘you’ seeing from?

Self-knowledge.  What is it? One may assume to know what it is because there is so much talk about it and, after all, one is a learned being and one always has a firm opinion on most popular topics of conversation. But pause your thinking for a moment. What exactly is self-knowledge? Many beliefs may appear about ‘self-knowledge’ but no belief can be given the title of ‘knowledge’. Is self-knowledge a conclusion that one arrives at? Or is self-knowledge what remains when all beliefs, opinions and concepts are absent? Who is it that can claim to be aware of something? […]

Insight into eternity – the ‘always so’ – the ‘already so’.

It is, as we say, important to remember, that words are all learned (or second hand) and that words are accompanied by a common agreement, an agreement of assigning particular meaning onto those words. It is also important to remember that the reader, in this case of reading the post, it is the reader who assigns meaning upon these words.  This happens so quickly, usually, that we are not even conscious of this assigning of meaning.  We all automatically assume that the meaning has been injected into the written material.  To be sure, a meaning is implied but there is […]

Spontaneous immediacy – Life

The life that lives you in this immediacy right now is the same life that lives and appears as all living things, past present and future.  It does not change.  The caveman of antiquity ‘was’ lived by this very same life that lives you.  The apparent individual patterns, the forms, appear and disappear.  Cavemen have gone but life remains as it always is.  The living bird that flies through your garden is that same life, this life!  No separation.  Two eyes, one seeing.  The mind appears to divide the appearance into many things and it is the labelling of things that […]

No cloud is stuck to the sky

Latest video of Sailor Bob Adamson is uploaded.  Search in youtube for:  Sailor Bob – The Nonduality “Spiel” Melbourne, March 12, 2015 …. Why does the clear and obvious seem so mysterious, so hidden from view? It isn’t actually hidden.  It is closer to you than your breath.  Imagination is the cloud of confusion.  Inadvertence appears to be the chief cause or ‘reason’ for the non-recognition of our true nature.  The belief in ‘me’ is non-recognition.  What resists the clear and obvious?  Isn’t it the belief in an image of self – ‘me’? The evaporation of obscuration is the key. At […]

Already so.

It is pointed out by those who know, that what you seek you already are. What happens to the seeking if this ‘truth’ is acknowledged totally? We hear about something called awareness and then we go looking for it.  We conceptualise the very ‘thing’ that is not a thing, the very non thing that permits the unnecessary search. No one needs to believe in anything that is clearly self evident. The self-evident has nothing to do with belief. The seeing is happening.  Spontaneous seeing. The moment you open your eyes in the morning the whole world appears in the seeing (The […]

Identity, boundary, duration and volume.

All of our problems are due to identity issues and boundary issues. You will never work it out in the mind.  The more you look, the more it seems that the answer recedes from view.  Stop looking for ways out.   Be what you are. The mind needs to be understood. Mind or intellect is mechanical. Every word you use has been learned. Intelligence was obviously present prior to language being learned.  One could say that intelligence enables language.  What we miss is the fact that by putting labels onto things and in believing in those labels we inadvertently compose an unsolvable problem […]

The silent pointer beyond words

The harmonious functioning of the wholeness of being is compromised by a fixation with the intellect.  Words are given a value beyond their actual function through belief.  Belief acts as a filter which appears to alter what is actual into a fiction of mind. For the functioning to reveal its harmonious potentiality it is necessary for all the senses to be open.  The habit of fixating on the intellect, as if it were the primary functioning is the most common error and the cause of a tremendous amount of misunderstanding, conflict and dis-ease. The available intelligence is dulled down and […]

Being what you are is effortless

There are stories and legends about ‘enlightenment’ and most of them are serving an illusion of being separate.  The illusion of ‘grasping consciousness’ finally attaining ‘something’, a state of permanent bliss, or some other fantastical imagined state of mind has to be split wide open.  It is all a dream but the representatives who claim to be gurus or teachers do not point this out.  Why?  Could it be simply because they too are just aspects of the same dream?  The so-called ‘privileged position’ of appearing to take on the responsibility of delivering seekers out of the dream is an […]

Spiritual imagination is a dream

Falling for the temptation to dream of spiritual progress is very common.  It is the easiest thing to entice seekers into a realm of hope in a future time.  In the scheme of things, it is one of the biggest industries for ‘modern man’.  There is no such thing as spiritual progress in reality.  What is true is true – what is false is false (and the twain shall never meet). To distinguish what is real from what is false should be easy but it appears to be quite difficult for most.  Why?  A biased point of view (the me […]
