The Seer naturally loves the Seen. Seer and Seen are one. Knower and known are one. Seeker and sought are one. There's no where to go and nothing to do, except BE what you are, without all the spiritual contexts you've picked up along the way.

No matter what seems to be going on, present awareness is always the case, whether we are poking it with a mind-stick or not.
A quote about the truth:
For Truth to be Truth, it must not change, it must be Absolute. If Truth could change, how could it be True?

There is no my thought or your thought. There is just a thought, without ownership.
When one takes the "I" to be undivided, impersonal, timeless, spaceless awareness, everything that arises is awareness. Let's say there is an arising of the entire world with galaxies, people, romance, mystery, travel, art, science, space exploration and subatomic particles. Where can it be other than awareness? It is - as awareness. Whatever was, is - as awareness, not separate from awareness. Since awareness has no edges or periphery, there is nothing else for anything to be made of. Nothing fails to arise. Where would the failure take place? There can't be anything missing. What can possibly be missing unless it were somewhere else? But where could that possibly be - with no edges or borders to awareness? There are no separate "places."
Other pointer-words don't *define* awareness, but they give the flavor or fragrance or esthetic of awareness: "presence," "love," "inclusion," "fullness," "home." Mmmm, very sweet!

Who wants to know what?
Our intellect or the ability the human being have namely "thinking", creates the idea in the Human that he is a separate entity, an individual. There is the constant feeling and an overwhelming conviction, that the world is over there and the sense of me is something different. This very idea, thought of separation IS the bondage. And with this concept of bondage the idea of liberation comes in. The intellect has separated him from the rest of the universe. The liberation comes when he realizes that he cannot be a separate entity, that he is an unbroken part with the whole of universe. When the impersonal consciousness identifies with an object, then the me comes in. It is the impersonal consciousness that brings about the individual, the individual is a concept. So the realisation of the falasy of the individual is the elightenment.

The substance that appeares in consciousness is also made of consciousness.
Mind itself is an appearance of totality, of consciousness.
Everything arises within me.
To bee this knowing precense.
When the "story" surrenders, when the "story" drops it's easy, simple, effortless. What is. No fight. Still.
What you 'are' is not conscious of time.
When we open our hearts to life, life opens to us.
Meditation is a natural state in ourselfs when we are not concerned about ourselfs.

...Use your own line of reasoning to ascertain the truth about yourself. That it seems reasonable to say that whatever is always a part of your experience is a part of your self. Simply apply that criteria to your actual experience.
Ask yourself what is always present in your experience and know that whatever you find is your self. Knowing is always present because 'something' is known in every experience. Even if what is known is an illusion, the illusion is known. Being is present in every experience, simply by virtue of the fact that experience IS.
Therefore you know for certain that you are Knowing and Being or Knowing Presence. These two elements (apparently two) are obvious in all experience. This Knowing Presence is in fact not two things.
When the dualising mind rises up and seems to separate this oneness of Knowing being into two apparent things (an entity residing in the body and an outside, separate world of objects and others) this Knowing of our own Being seems to be lost.
This Knowing of our own Being is simply the familiar experience of peace or love. In other words peace or love is also inherent in our self but seems to be veiled by the apparent separation of experience into two things. So Knowing, Being and Loving are inherent in what we are - that is our simple moment by moment experience. Just live this understanding in your everyday life in relation to people, animals, objects, situations and events, and everything will fall into place.
I love his pointing.

The Disciples were full of questions about ‘God’ The Master said;"God is the unknown and the unknowable, every statement and any answer or question is a distortion about 'the truth'". The disciples was bewildered and asked why he was talking at all? "Why did the birds sing?” said the master, "not because they have a statement but because they have a song. The words of the scholar are to be understood, but the word of the master is not to be understood. They are listening to as one would be listening to the wind in the trees, and a sound of the river or to a song of a bird. The words will awaken something, but in a heart that is beyond all knowledge.

The only Self, Life, Awareness, there is, is the Infallible Present, and again, It, too is entirely impersonal. But that happens to be this Alive Present Awareness aware here, now. The fact that It is entirely impersonal doesn’t make It one bit less PRESENT.
The Absolute Present leaves no history of even Itself! Not even the Present has been before!
"Who is being conscious besides Consciousness itself to not be ready to be fully conscious?"
Consciousness, or what is often also called the Self, the One, Life Itself, Love, the Divine or God—already is this very One being conscious and alive here, now. There is only this One, and no other lesser life or experience that ever became separate.

There was a rabbi who was visited by a dead man who had a problem: he thought he lived. "Don't you know?" the rabbi explained, "you are not anymore amongst the living. You reside in 'the land of confusion' ". When the Rabbies son heard about that he started worrying that he also lived in the 'land of confusion'. "When you know that there exists such a land you cannot reside in it" said the Rabbi.
When you are aware of 'the land of confusion'...
You are Not in it, and...

When you can't get any further you stop the search and you allow the Source - Self to look for you! You allow yourself to be lived. You allow the Truth to live you. You just let go. It is a feeling that this body and mind that you used to call yours is just being lived now by that reality that is the only reality that really is. It is a feeling of a deep letting go.

Let us get to basics first – what is a question? The word ‘question’ means a quest, seeking, searching and needing. It is life’s way to help us evolve in consciousness. And, it is consciousness itself asking the questions according to the level of our awareness growth.
The questions that are unconscious inside you are the causes of your stress and negative reactions. In fact, all unresolved questions are our suffering. Initially our questions center on our ego and that is as it should be. They often consist of ‘why’ and also ‘how.’ The word ‘why’ is the first indication that the questioner doesn’t really want the truth but an escape from it. For instance if someone asks, “why am I suffering?” are looking for sympathy and someone who canb enable their victim-mentality. A fully matured question would be more like, “What is suffering?”
The nature of a question is the recognition that we do not know. There’s an old Zen saying that affirms, “If you think you know, then it’s clear you don’t know. If you admit you don’t know then you know.” This most basic of understandings is also the most powerful. The knowledge that trumps all other knowledge is the understanding that we have no certainty. A fact that frightens us is that the ego can NEVER be certain (nor secure or safe).
The moment we start getting to know this fact and accept it, it is at that moment we start becoming unstuck. We really don’t know except words from hearsay and books. This ‘not-knowing’ allows an investigation into life that is unobstructed by our conditioning, uncluttered by our information. Just remember this fact…It is the absence of knowing That allows the discovery of the new.
Why do we get stuck? It is because nobody ever told us that there is nothing to know for the mind except information. Information cannot help you anymore than black dots on a white page can. We fit what is new into what is old by seeking answers thinking we now know. This thinking we know simply repeats the same old patterns, old thinking and old questions.
When it comes to the Truth there is nothing to know and the only way to break free is to stop trying to know something thus open yourself to what is already in you and about you and really start looking in a fresh new way.
How do we come to know beyond intellectual knowing? -- by looking deeply into our natural questioning nature. This whole journey on earth is an evolution of consciousness. This evolution of consciousness has one single drive – to know itself! And, how does it get to know itself? -- Through the process of questioning.
Our every step in our consciousness ‘climb’ is a question understood (not answered).

Not grasping nor pushing anything away. In a sense, that's analogous to remaining in the present, because in the present everything collapses, and you really can't hold onto anything. The moment you grasp onto something, or you push something away, in a sense you're not in the present, because you're attached or identified with something that's passing away. So not doing that--not grasping or pushing anything away--really brings you into the present. this receding landscape in which everything was dissolving into this ever-present eternal moment, unencumbered by any kind of willing, or grasping, or pushing away. You start to taste the eternal.
"How do you know you are? Because you are!" You can't know this through thinking about it. All the thinking mind can ever know is that it can't know, because the thinking mind is dualistic. There's a subject trying to grasp some object. So that has to come to a stop. And when it does, there's no subject and there's no object. There's just Being, and the Being is infinite space. The Being is in everything. Everything is arising from this infinite space. The space is birthing everything and dissolving everything simultaneously. And everything is just this empty infinite space. This emptiness knows everything, because it's empty--just like the eye sees every color because it has no color of its own. So this "knowing" knows everything because it's nothing.
Andrea had an awakening experience, if we can use that word.....if you want to read the whole story, here is the link.
Anyway, someone is questioning if she is enlightened....
Q: So, do you now consider yourself to be Enlightened?
A: Enlightened?.... Why do I hesitate to use that word, Enlightened? Because to have the Realization is one thing, to live the Realization is another. To be a Buddhist is one thing, to be a Buddha is another. To know Reality is one thing, to be Reality is another. There is an embodiment process that goes on. There's a birthing, and a maturing, just like a child is born and grows. Literally, I feel I have plopped out of the womb of the Divine Mother. I am just an infant, not yet an adult--which is how I would define an Enlightened being, as someone who fully embodies the Realization.
Q: Then how would you label your experience, if anything...?
A: I like the word "Gnosis" because to me it has kind of the sense of I met God. I got to God, so to speak. I got into the depth of what's Real. But then what's that? What is God? Oh, the mystery of God! The mystery of Self! It's greater than ever! Now there's this infinite expression of God, or the Divine, or the Self. It's like Joel has said, "The journey to God has an end, but the journey in God has no end," because how could there be an end to God? Dr. Wolff talked about that, too. He talked about greater and greater depths of Space--that Consciousness is this infinitely revelatory expression of the Self, and that never ends. So what happened to me was, I woke up. I woke from the dream. And now, when I'm dreaming--which still goes on--I'm lucidly dreaming. Now, I know that I'm dreaming. And I want to share all this because I feel it's very important.
Everything that everybody has shared with me has been extremely useful. And this is happening to all of us. Our meditations are deepening, and this is going to be happening. That's why I want to share everything I can. Because it's happening to us together. But, if I say, "I'm Enlightened," there're all these connotations--"Are you saying you're Buddha? Are you saying you're omniscient?" No I'm not saying any of that. So, I'm afraid to say anything--but at the same time I can't lie. I crossed a line. I woke up. And because of that I can't be separated from the Beloved anymore. I can't.
Q: What is your advice for other seekers?
A: To just carry on and know that you're perfectly in accord with your destiny.

....I abandoned my career, friends, and family in search of the Truth to which all the mystics seemed to point. And yet, no matter how hard I tried or how far I traveled, that Holy Grail continued to elude me. Finally, after I had given up all hope of attaining my goal, it happened. In a cheap motel room on the night of August 13, 1983, I Awoke to a Reality at once far more astonishing and, at the same time, far more simple than anything I could have ever imagined. Here is part of what I wrote shortly thereafter:
I jump up, turn on the light, and look around. Sure enough, I no longer see through a glass darkly. The veil has been lifted and the glass has cleared—no, more than cleared—it has vanished! I see the Kingdom, and now I am laughing wildly, because the great joke of it all is
that this exalted Kingdom I have been searching for in such anguish and despair is none other than the very room I have been sleeping in, with its dirty, cinder block walls, frayed curtains, and horribly grungy, blue-green rug! I could have shouted! I could have danced! I could have done anything for that matter, because it really didn’t matter. It didn’t even exist and never had. I was free.
What was it like? What was it not like? How can I tell you? I can't, but I'll be brave and try, anyway...It was not a thought. It was not a feeling. It was not an experience. I was everything. I was nothing. I was everywhere and I was nowhere -- nowhere to be found, hence, nowhere to be lost. Amazing Grace! Sacred Grace! Silly Grace! -- like those nonsensical little phrases that children make up and then laugh and laugh over while poor perplexed adults just shake their heads. And no wonder! You have to be a child to get it. And I was a child, a child sitting on a bed, bathed in rapture...
I had never expected this! What had I expected? Something exceptional, luminous, visionary -- the Platonic Forms behind all forms, or a Transcendental Light wiping out the universe, or maybe the Cosmic Voice of God calling me from eternity -- I don't know, but it wasn't this. This was much, much too obvious. It wasn't even right under my nose, it was my nose. And it was a finger uncurling miraculously in front of my eyes. It was a car horn, sharp and crisp in the night. It was the sound of my sheets rustling as I shifted position on the bed. It was the doorknob effortlessly staring me in the face -- they were all so effortless, and therein lies the true Oneness and Beauty of the world; we are all effortlessly together, brothers and sisters to the stars -- nor do I mean this metaphorically (though metaphor it is), for this was no gauzy vision full of images and archetypes. The Image had burst, and the Light was out, and the Light was everything. The Metaphorical World had come to an end, and I was AWAKE in the REAL WORLD, the world without end.
....oh, these stories.

Everything, including all minds, "happens" within awareness. There is only one awareness. Your awareness, my awareness and God's awareness are the same awareness which is the substance of all things, literally "that which stands under" all things, that which understands all things. And that which "understands" all things is also that which comprehends all things, literally that which holds all things together. Awareness is beyond the duality of mind and matter. It is the formless and nameless presence that creates mind phenomena (names) and physical phenomena (forms).
Buy the way, just for fun:
Paradox of the theologians: if God is almighty and all knowing, it created evil, or at least he is aware of it and has the power to stop it. Since there is evil, it follows that God is not loving. Then they do a lot of intellectual tap dancing trying to prove that 2 + 2 = 3 (that God is loving and almighty, but that man is evil). Their problem is that they agree on the statement "there is evil", to which God could answer: "in your eyes, gentlemen, not in Mine".

-Having seen the nature of our thought and ego, we may pass through this gateway into silence.
-Though the psychological self, the ego-center has gone silent, there is nothing lost. Out of this vast expansion of quiet, the energy of life expresses.
- The nature of emptiness is that it defies definition. It's the absence of, it's not the presence of. So if it's the absence of everything, it's also the absence of definition.
-'We live in the unknown as the unknown'That means that you know nothing and everything is new. Everything is created in this moment.
-There is no such thing as seeker, there is just someone who is fearful, who wants power, who wants control, who believes that through some knowledge it can find some place in the universe.
-We are not autonomous.
-If there is no time, then everything is everything.
-I think the attraction of non-duality is a sort of intellectual clarity. But that isn't it, it is a trap. Because it stops there, in that intellectual clarity which is just a clarified mind. There is this movement of energy that is so clear and has more to do with a feeling quality. You can't get to it by thinking. You come there by the total experience of life.

There are two kinds of meditation, meditation with an object and non-objective (or non-dual) meditation. The first kind of meditation may be useful as a preparation. It requires focusing the attention onto a specific object, gross or subtle, such as a statue or a mental image of the divine (path of devotion), various bodily sensations (Hatha Yoga), a series of sacred sounds (Mantra Yoga), a Koan, and so on. In this process, an effort, sometimes very subtle, is necessary in order to remove one's attention from the usual objects of desire and the ego is weakened.
When the goal of this path is achieved, the mind remains quietly focused onto the object without any effort. The mind experiences a stillness, an absence of thoughts and emotions other than the ones that refer to the object of meditation, even in the presence of the King who is not noticed by the arrow maker. However, the samadhi which is arrived at is a mind-created state which has a beginning and an end. Sooner or later, the yogin must come out of his samadhi. Unfortunately, the ego is still present, along with its cortege of fears, desires and pains.
A peculiar form of meditation with an object is one in which the object is a void or blank. In this process, an effort is made to keep the mind free from thoughts or sensations. Sometimes, a tool such as a mantra or some form of pranayama is used to achieve this end. As in any kind of meditation with an object, a weakening of the ego ensues, and the mind experiences for some time a blank state, an absence of thoughts and sensations, or simply an absence of thoughts, depending on the depth and of the nature of the samadhi. However, the samadhi which is arrived at is again a mind-created state which has a beginning and an end.
This form of meditation is often mistakenly believed to be non-objective meditation. This is not the case because the absence of objects (sensations and thoughts) is still a very subtle projected object. Although this state may temporarily bring some satisfaction and even unleash some mind powers (siddhis), it soon turns out to be a barren one; the meditator remains within the jail of the mind, the fullness of the heart remains unknown to him; this state is devoid of the absolute freedom, of the creative joyfulness and of the wonderful immortality of the natural non-dual state (nirvikalpa sahaja samadhi).
In non-objective meditation, our attention is drawn towards the non-objective, the ultimate subject, consciousness. This is accomplished as a result of understanding. At the first stage, the truth-seeker is asked to notice that the happiness he is really looking for is non-objective, which means "not contained in any object, gross or subtle". When this is understood, he is then asked to realize that the mind, which can only grasp mentations (thoughts and sense-perceptions), cannot have access to the non-objective realm. It follows that any attempt to secure the happiness he is looking for through the mind is bound to failure. When this is understood, the mind soon finds itself in a NATURAL state of stillness.
In this natural form of meditation, sensations or thoughts are neither sought nor avoided; they are simply welcomed and seen off. It could be described as a total openness, in which we are totally open to our sense perceptions, our bodily sensations, our emotions, our feelings and our thoughts. We could compare these mentations with the various characters of a play. As long as we find the play interesting, our attention is completely drawn by the actors on the foreground, but, if there is a weak moment, our attention progressively relaxes until we become suddenly aware of the background, of the stage. In the same way, as our attention becomes global, unfocused, open, disinterested, (and this detachment follows from our understanding that these mentations have really nothing to offer in terms of real happiness), our attention relaxes, until we become suddenly aware of the background, consciousness, which reveals itself as the ultimate immortality, splendor and happiness we were looking for.
It is not necessary for the actors to leave the stage in order for us to be aware of the background of the stage; similarly, the absence of mentations is not a prerequisite for awareness of the Self. However, in the same way as, when the actors leave and our attention relaxes, we have an opportunity to become aware of the background, there is an opportunity to "visualize" our real nature when a mentation merges into consciousness.
The inner attitude of welcoming which is the essence of non-objective meditation is also easily and naturally conveyed by "induction", in the presence of someone who has merged with the background, to a truth-seeker who has a genuine desire for it.

-How can thoughts wich rise and set in Me, be other than Myself?
-When there is thought, I am seeing Myself; when there is no thought, I am remaining in My own glory.
-That which shines just before and after every thought and feeling is the "I". That is objectless consciousness; that is Atma.
-The world shines because of My light: without Me, nothing is. I am the light in the perception of the world.
-Unless there is seeing, there is no form. Form has no independent existence and is therefore the seeing itself.
-If form is itself seeing, how can one see a form? Therefore what is seen is not form but something different.
-Because hearing is itself sound, no one hears a sound. This truth applies generally to all sense-objects.
-A sage knows well that consciousness is self-luminous and that it is consciousness that illumines the entireworld. He knows also that his real nature is consciousness and experience and cannot as such be known or experienced.Hence he does not desire or make any attempt to know or experience it. When the mind is directed to it, it changes into that, losing the characteristics of mind. This is called samadhi. Whether there is thought or not, to be always self-centred is called the natural state or sahaja-samadhi.
A man believes he is bound, becomes miserable, seeks liberation and for that purpose approaches a Guru and listens to his teachings. But all this time he was unknowlingly standing in pure consciousness alone which is itself the truth he was seeking. When once he becomes fully aware of this stand he is freed and thenceforward, all thoughts, feelings and objects of perception will be pointing to himself. Knowledge has nothing to know. The insentient can never know, being insentient. Therefor no-one knows anything. All beings stand established as pure consciousness.

The biggest fear is your own death. But when you know your true nature, that of impersonal consciousness, then there is no fear of death, for you were never born and will never die, you are eternal, where is there for you to go, you are beyond space and time, in fact, they exist within you, not you within them.

Osho about meditation;
"Meditation is a single lesson of awareness, of no-thought, of spontaneity, of being total in your action, alert, aware. It is not a technique, it is a knack. Either you get it or you don't."
There is a very beautiful dialoug about meditation by Osho;
Why did this idea arise in people's minds? that meditation brings happiness. In fact, wherever they found a happy person they always found a meditative mind -- both things got associated. Whenever they found the beautiful, meditative milieu surrounding a man, they always found he was tremendously happy -- vibrant with bliss, radiant. They became associated. They thought: Happiness comes when you are meditative. It was just the other way round: meditation comes when you are happy. But to be happy is difficult and to learn meditation is easy. To be happy means a drastic change in your way of life, an abrupt change -- because there is no time to lose. A sudden change -- a sudden clash of thunder -- a discontinuity.
Meditation is in the present, pure present. Meditation is immediacy. You cannot meditate, you can be in meditation.
It was just the other way round: meditation comes when you are happy.
Sitting silently doing nothing, the spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
Meditation is a state of attentiv perciving where everything is percived undivided. No-one can learn you to "be" attention. If any system teaches you to be attention your attention is on the system, that is not attention itself. Meditation is maybe the greatest art of life - and it's not possible to learn it from anyone, that's the beauty of it. It is not a technique and has no authority.
Sayed all that, there is no condemnation of anything, practices, exercises, meditation, no meditation, you do what you do. You do it anyway. My experience is that when the inner pull arises, the sitting, being quite, is natural. No big deal. Whatever is, is anyway.

-Life is a divine expression without any reason.
-Awareness makes the vastness possible.
-The raw naked simplicity of what is, ends the mind game. The mind is there but it has lost it's power.
-You cannot talk, reason, explain, grasp or think about it and yet it is all there is, smiling at your face.
-The content changes but this cannot, this is the paradixal aliveness.
This post ends with a very direct and provocing ( for the mind) clip about John Sherman who says that; "Truth is easy".

The triangel is not there. It appears between this not complet blue circles and the blue lines against the white background. It is a mirage, illusion that appears. The same with the idea of a "me". The body and the world creats an illusion of a real person.

Some quotes from UG....
"Your constant utilization of thought to give continuity to your separate self is 'you'. There is nothing there inside you other than that."
"When the movement in the direction of becoming something other than what you are isn't there any more, you are not in conflict with yourself."

When this self-centered concepts is seeing through, then it's also seen that there is nothing wrong with anything. Not even with so called teachers, seeking, seaching for enlightenment, doubting and suffering. This is done by the imagined "me", a belief.
This is something new on my blog. Videoclips where I give lectures on different topics. Fun, we will see how it goes. Here we go:

No, because it's an imagination, a mirage.
But if you take a close look, make an investigation. What happens?
What happens to a mirage when it's been looked upon very closely?
Se it for your Self.

Everything exists without anyone, for no-one, without purpose to nowhere.
Everything was free from the beginning and will always be.

- There is a hidden trap, difficult to se by the self. The question is; "who is experiencing this?"
- If there is some good experiences there then the fear to lose it appears.
- Then there is the chasing for the happening to somehow keep it there forever or something like that.
- You always want more of it, there is the desire for more of it.
- This chasing creates suffering because the lack of control of it.
The experience is not the problem, the problem is the "me" that claims the experience and trying to control it. The problem is the unnecessary suffering the "I" is creating out of it. The experience is as it is. It should stand for itself.
It seems that the "me" comes back and says; "look what I did!"When there is the idea of a doer or someone that have any control over what's happening is suffering.
What releases the suffering is the seeing through the illusory "me", "I". Until then the suffering goes on in awareness, the play goes on, until it's not.
