This day is your whole life...

I am going to take a break or time out for a while from my blogg. From the beginning it was ment to be a diary for me but I got lot of respons to what I delivered on the blogg. It all started 2007 when I discovered Non-duality. After many years of seeking and practising there were the answers. A great "Ahaa" arisied. In a simpel maner Tony Parsons, Jeff Foster, Nathan gill, and others pointed out a possibility I never had heard before....maybe in me something were ready for the absolute reality there never was "anyone" there from the beginning, and still...the appearance of a person is there. It IS and it isn't. The living paradox in life.

The reason we miss IT is beacouse of the simplicity of it all and the intimate nature of IT. We all are "That", like the eye can not see itself. We are that seeing, hearing, smelling whatever.

When I start the blogg again, I am going to speak and write from my own window, from the appearance of "Roshi"...if... I start the blogg again. As a last gift, Jeff....latest. And links to the main teachers or what you want to call this "pointers":

Quotes of the day:

"The end of SEEKING, and the end of the SEEKER,is SEEING life as it is..."

"This day is whole your life"

Quotes of the day

-The only question worth asking: 'What are you defending?'

-Nothing is not nothing , not the absence of all things, but also the presence of them, so that nothing is really everything.... and so it all ends not in nihilism, but in wonder, in fascination, in the kind of gratitude that breaks your heart.

-Yes, all that is left is a radical simplicity that cannot be taught, cannot be formulated, reified, systematized, and ultimately cannot even be named - but still, it is all there is, and all there has ever been, and all there needs to be, because only a separate mind would ever want more. the end, which is also the beginning, life is the only authority, and all the teachings of the world burn up in the fire of this unbounded freedom...

Poem by Rumi "the wolf is my shepherd,"

This is a lovely poem by Rumi I got from a dear friend:

"the wolf is my shepherd,"

The Sea boils with passion for you
The clouds pour pearls at your feet
A lightning from your love has pierced the earth
This smoke curling to heaven is its child.

We were green: we ripened and grew golden.
The Sea terrified us: we learned how to drown.
Squat and earthbound, we unfolded huge wings.
We started sober: are love’s startled drunkards.

You hide me in your cloak of nothingness
Reflect my ghost in your glass of being
I am nothing, yet appear: transparent dream
Where your eternity briefly trembles.

This love sacrifices all souls, however wise, however “awakened”
Cuts off their heads without a sword,
hangs them without a scaffold.

We are the guests of the one who devours his guests
The friends of the one who slaughters his friends....
Although by his gaze he brings death to so many lovers
Let yourself be killed by him: is he not the water of life?

Never, ever, grow bitter: he is the friend and kills gently.
Keep your heart noble, for this most noble love
Kills only kings near God and men free from passion.
We are like the night, earth’s shadow.
He is the Sun: He splits open the night
with a sword soaked in dawn....

The man to whom is unveiled the mystery of Love
Exists no longer, but vanishes into love.
Place before the Sun a burning candle
And watch its brilliance disappear before that blaze,
The candle exists no longer, it is transformed into Light,
There are no more signs of it, it itself becomes sign....

You are my soul, my universe:
what do I have to do with the soul and the universe?

For me you are ever-flowing treasure:
what do I have to do with profit and loss?
One minute, I am the friend of the wine,
another the friend of him who burns me.
I have come to this age of ruins,
so what do I have to do with time’s melodrama?

I am terrified by the whole world,
I am sprung free of the whole world,
I am neither “hidden” no “apparent.”
What do I have to do with existence or space?
I am drunk on union with you,
I need and want and care about no one else.

Since I am your prey, what do I care
about fate’s bow and its arrows?
I live at the bottom of the stream,
why would I go looking for water?
What could or would I say about this stream that flows and flows?
I have given up existence,
why go on staggering under the burden of this mountain?

Since the wolf is my shepherd,
why put up with the pretensions of the shepherd?
What abandon! What drunkenness!
You hold the cup in you hand
Blessed is the place you are,
and glorious to the eye of the heart.
Each atom, by your grace, is a universe,
each drop of water a soul.

No one who has ever had a sign from you
need worry again about “name” or “sign.”
To find the place of splendor,
at the bottom of the Sea of truths
You have to dive, dive head first:
what do I have to do with feet that scurry?

With the sword of the One God you have hacked a Path for us:
You have stolen all my clothes:
What will I give to the toll-man?
From your beauty ablaze like the sun,
from the curls of your hair,
My heart has become ecstatic:
O my soul, hand me this brimming cup,
Do not weigh pain and misery,
contemplate love, contemplate friendship:
Do not mull over tyranny and neglect:
think of all those who have their eyes fixed on you.
Surname all grief ‘grace’:
transmute pain and anguish into joy
And ask from joy all happiness, all security, all peace.
Demand that security, that peace, demand them,
Choose the company of those withdrawn in love

Adyashanti - Simple Awareness

Here Adyashanti is talking about simple Awareness and the sense of the "nothing", I love it....

Some inspiring words from John Sherman;

You are here, if you look at that, everything else is taken care of. This is the only thing you can do by yourself, nobody can do that for you, and its easy, you are here. What could be easier. It's to look at the fundamental thing that you know.You are here. Just that! Looka at it. It looks like you. Already you are exactly as you are. You don't have to change anything to see this.

-The thought of knowing it keeps you from being it.

-Arrogans is to claim that you know what anything is.

So, is it to not to try to 'Know' it ?....can we avoid arrogans?

Maybe it is not either....

Now where do we stand?

Do we have a choise?

Bernie Prior

Bernie says something nice about when a 'knowing' appears of something that is impossible to explain or touching nothingness;

When we begin to touch this nothing and we have a knowing about it, for a while we feel contained in something but we do not know what it is. If you have ever watched somebody die, they are in the same place – almost. When someone dies they become less interested in the sensible forms and more interested in something that they cannot explain.

Their attention gets drawn into this place inside them rather than drawn outside - that is exactly the mystical way. The mystical way is when an individual begins to awaken to the pull inside that has nothing to do with the forms as they presently are, but has everything to do with what is animating and changing them constantly from a place of the true will. So when this begins to happen - we begin to touch this unknown place because we’re giving ourselves and you begin to awaken to knowing - it is a question of whether you continue to be nurtured by the knowing and your response to the knowing; then the knowing starts to move as an action in life.

As it moves in an action in life the knowing is being integrated into the life of a human being; you have living knowingness. Now you have a living Being beginning to take place. You as a Being, appearing human, have access to that place. There is an expansion inside and outside; you are no longer contained, you are beginning to be uncontainable. The containment that you may feel is the holding on to a personal life that is being threatened by this uncontainable place you are opening up to.

Dr. Shankar

Shankar talks about the ultimate understanding;

The moment you understand or the understanding happens to man, that he neither talks nor speaks nor does - and all three happen to him as an optical and auditory illusion of light and sound - he will be relaxed in life, he will be alive in life, he will not have to worry about what will happen in life, because life happens to him whether he likes it or not. He simply enjoys the life as a witnesser - witnesser means “he who witnesses life happening”, “he who witnesses and understands that life makes life happen and it is not man who makes life happen, least of all through his mind.

Whatever man believes happens in life, he beliefs it, it is just a belief to him, but not an understanding. If he understands life, he will realize, nothing happens in life. Life is just a movement of color, light and sound, forms and shapes. An action is an optical illusion, and an auditory illusion in the mind. But man is convinced of an action as a reality. Man needs to understand, that in life neither is time existent nor is anything physically real. There is not anything such as substance in life. Everything, which is known, is not of any substance or reality in life. It is just existent as a thought in his mind. Such is the intelligence of life.

“Life makes the mind happen”



fredag 16 april 2010

Interesting statement by Dr Shankar

This is a long article By V.S. Shankar about meditation and practice. This issue have been always big and somehow important to me;

‘Tat Tvam Asi’, ‘Aham Brahmaasmi’: words of wisdom they surely are, but are they revered by one and all or, at least, by the spiritually-minded and the spiritually-acclaimed? Is the meaning of these wise words totally understood? ‘Tat Tvam Asi’ and ‘Aham Brahmaasmi’ mean ‘That Thou Art’ and ‘Thou Art Brahman’. These adages are not followed up with instructions to meditate.
Before that, it is rather important to recollect who uttered these wise words. They were obviously uttered by enlightened beings, for who else could have realised them? They are specific and leave no room for the existence of an individual who is a doer as a reality. These words proclaim that only the real exists and that reality is God, life, existence or intelligence.
The words also mean to convey that the recognisable entities, and there are many in this world, need to be illusory and not real. These words correlate with the proclamation of enlightened beings that the world is ‘Maya’, meaning illusory. These illusory, recognisable entities were few and far between in primitive times as compared to the present day, and this only reflects the degree of sophistication of the world.

So, there is no doubt that these words were uttered by enlightened beings. Man does not seem to remember them nor has he understood them. He appears to know these words, but knowing is not understanding: to know is knowledge, which is dead. But why have they been forgotten? Would man forget them or is it that life has made him forget? His forgetfulness cannot be a reality because to ‘forget’ would then be a reality and the proclamation ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ would not be true.

Man has not forgotten for to forget is not within his control. If to forget were real, he would always forget and there would be nothing that he could remember. Would a world be possible for such a man? It would be, and it is the case, for it is not man who thinks - thinking happens to man. If thinking is up to man, then he would never forget, and why would he? To forget means that the particular thought did not happen to him. To forget is proof that man does not think and that thinking happens to him. If he has to remember, and remembering were real, then he would always remember and never forget.

The enlightened beings were those to whom the wise words ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ were revealed. They understood that man is not the doer. If he is not the doer, it also means that he is not the speaker or the thinker. Both the speaking and the thinking happen to man. He is not the doer for life is not eventful, only the mind is. Life is a transformation-process of energy that is reflected as a singular movement, which is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable. This singular movement is projected as actions, which are an optical illusion. It must be understood that actions are thoughts, which are an auditory illusion of sound. The body, which includes speaking, is a movement of light, while the mind with its thoughts and thinking-process is a movement of sound. That is why ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ .

The enlightened beings could not have brought about meditation techniques. They were enlightened for they had realised that man was not the doer. They could not possibly have instructed man to meditate for they would certainly have realised that life is a singular movement and actions are not possible in life, as life is timeless and thoughtless. Thinking, speaking and the thought of actions happened to man and he did not make them happen. Thinking, speaking and the movement of the body, illusory though they may be, reflect the depth of understanding that has happened to man. Therefore, surely the enlightened beings could not possibly have brought about meditation techniques. It is wise to remember that the enlightened beings known to man have never asked him ‘to do’ or ‘not to do’ anything, let alone meditation. If they had, then they would not have realised ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’

Meditation is an English word and its Sanskrit equivalent is ‘Dyaan’ meaning to contemplate. The word contemplate means ‘to understand’. Men to whom contemplation happened understood that the world, man and his mind, including time, were illusory. The understanding revealed enlightenment to such men and they came to be known as enlightened beings. Meditation does not mean an act. Life has made man believe that meditation indicates an act. If the world is illusory, meditation too has to be illusory and it only needs to be understood that it is so.

The enlightened beings in contemplation assumed a sitting position and asked men to contemplate, meaning ‘Dyaan’. Sitting was the movement that happened to them. The word ‘sitting’ happened later to the mind as part of sophistication. Man did not understand what contemplation could be. He believed that the enlightened beings asssumed a sitting position to contemplate, and life’s intelligence was so precise that at that very moment ‘Dyaan’ or meditation, as it is known, became an act. Thus, man believed that ‘Dyaan’ was an act that needs to be done to achieve peace or enlightenment. The enlightened beings realised that sitting too was not an act but a movement that appeared as an act to the mind. To men to whom such a realistion did not happen, the movement became an act and remained as knowledge, and remains as such ever since. So, the wise words ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ faded away from memory as life made man trust the mind and not life to maintain the illusory world.

During the sophistication of man, life gifted enlightened beings with understanding and another group of men with knowledge. As life progressed languages began to appear with a concomitant increase in knowledge. A specialised knowledge called spirituality soon emerged and meditation became part and parcel of spirituality. The enlightened beings understood that knowledge is illusory and is required to maintain the illusion, while man believed that knowledge conveyed the truth and so was convinced that meditation would reveal enlightenment, if practised. To practise meditation time and mind would be required and both of them are absent in life. Meditation only instils the desire to meditate more and nothing else. Life is a process of transformation of energy, which happens spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably every moment. The proclamation of the enlightened beings that life is a manifestation of light and sound, ‘bindu’ and ‘naada’, holds good.

But why does man wish to meditate? He believes that meditation will still the mind or make the mind peaceful. How true can this be? If the world were illusory, would not the stillness and peace too be illusory? It most certainly would. And what is the point in stilling the mind when it is not present in life? None at all, to say the least. But how could the mind be stilled when thoughts are in constant motion as is the body? Would not stilling the mind, and that is if it were possible, bring the functions of the mind to a stop? It certainly would mean just that and, if the functions were stopped, would man be able to appreciate and admire the illusory manifestation of God? If the ego were false, and it is so, and the spiritualists confirm it too, then would not every effort be false, and that includes the effort to meditate?

How would man still the mind? Does he not have to use the mind to still the mind? If the mind were restless and needed to be stilled, how could a restless mind bring about stillness? Would not the effort to still the mind make it more restless? This is the finding of man that, no matter how many years he believes that he is meditating or doing meditation, he is nevertheless restless at the drop of a coin. If he were really practising meditation for many years or generations, he should have become still or peaceful by now. Looking at the state of man, it is quite obvious that he is as far from being peaceful as he ever was.

Could the peace felt by man, no matter how temporary, be real? And what value could there be in peace if it were temporary? This would mean that peace, which man so desires, would always be temporary and not permanent. But is it peace that he experiences as a result of meditation? How could it be when an experience is just a thought in the mind and not an actuality in space and time? This is a contradiction more than anything else because life is causeless and effectless and, if meditation results in peace, then it would be the cause and peace the result.

The fabric of the mind is duality. Duality happened to the mind and man did not make it happen. Why would he only to be entangled in its reality, if it could be that? God or life very meticulously and precisely manifested duality to manifest an illusion. God or life did so, so that an understanding could happen to illusory man that the world with its duality is illusory, which would allow enlightenment to reveal itself.

Duality happened when opposite words came close together and united, and this generated a meaning. The moment that meaning came into the mind, the words that were in union were separated, but joined together by meaning, and hence duality was born. Transcendence happens when the opposites unite again in unison, thereby obliterating duality. An understanding that opposites are not separate but are joined together makes the transcendence happen, though, as long as duality is present as a reality within the mind, the world will appear real to man. Understanding reveals that life is an optical and auditory illusion of light and sound.

Man is restless if thoughts are many within his mind and thoughts, being dual, will contradict each other: the contradiction results in restlessness. Therefore, when thoughts are minimal, a false impression of peace is experienced, and this is exactly what happens with meditation. Man is asked to concentrate on one thought or to focus on a spot: for example, the area between the eyebrows, which is considered as the third eye, spiritually speaking. The body too is a thought in the mind, and so would the third eye be. What good could a third eye be when the visible two have not brought in peace?

Recitation of mantras induces deception in much the same way. Instead of a single thought, a group of thoughts gets repeated giving rise to a false sense of peace, and strengthens hope for enlightenment. Man is unique in every moment for he changes every moment, so it can never be the same man who can concentrate on a single or a group of thoughts. If repetition of mantras could lead to enlightenment, all parrots would have been enlightened by now. Man is lost in a web of deception and when anything is enchanting, as is meditation, the possibility of bondage to it is obvious and a certainty.

Is it possible for man to meditate or practise meditation? It cannot be for he is not the doer. To meditate or practise it the same man is required to be present in life, but he is never the same in any moment because he is a collection of energy, which transforms every moment into a new man - and that is why man ages. If it were the same man that is present in life, he or she would never age. Therefore, meditation or its related techniques can never be done because man is not the doer, and they can never be practised for a different man is present in life every moment. This is why 'That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ holds good. Moreover, if meditation and its related techniques were real, it would produce the result the very instant they are executed. There would be no need to practise. That they need to be practised is proof of their illusoriness.

Life makes meditation happen to man so that he will understand that it happens to him and he cannot possibly do it, and the thought that he does is an optical illusion of action, and the peace he feels is merely the absence of thoughts that disturb him. They will come rushing back once the mind begins to think of daily life. The peace is always during meditation and never after. Man pays a price for meditation and the price is life that is lost with the hope of becoming enlightened. The investment is huge while the dividend is minimal, if not zero. Life once lost remains lost and can never be regained.

What is it that makes man believe that the mind will become peaceful by meditation? It is an intelligent deception. For example, if man does not like the position of an object or the presence of an object, he simply shifts its position or discards it and replaces it with another. The same mechanism applies to humans too, which leads to a change in relationship or divorce. Life makes the shift and the change, and not man, and the belief that he does reflects superficial understanding. This makes him believe that thoughts too can be controlled and that meditation is the way to go about it. If man can control his thoughts, why meditate at all? He could simply stop the thinking or think of thoughts that would bring in peace. Life makes this happen to man so that he may understand that thinking happens and he does not make it happen. This understanding, and not meditation, reveals enlightenment that he so longs for.

If meditation were an act, and it is not, it would make any act meditation. Making coffee does not appear as meditation for it takes a few minutes, while it is believed that meditation should last for many hours. The longer the hours of meditation the greater is the chance of enlightenment, so it is believed. It is merely a belief and a belief is never the truth. The truth can never be the known by the mind. Meditation happens to man so that he may understand that even coffee-making happens to him. This understanding reveals that life is a spontaneous, singular movement in the timeless and thoughtless ‘now’, and to live in the moment is enlightenment. Meditation makes you think in terms of time and, whenever time is present, you are in the mind and not in life.

Your innate nature is a meditative state; life is a meditative state. You are always meditating and you need not meditate to be in a meditative state. You are in a meditative state whether you like it or not. Every moment is a meditative moment for man has not made the moment nor the illusion within the moment. Every moment is light and sound, which projects an optical and auditory illusory manifestation that includes meditation.

Meditation makes man feel superior to the other. It implicates him as the doer, which he is not, the very thing he is trying to get rid of through meditation. Man’s efforts defeat the purpose of meditation. Real means that which does not change and is eternal. Hence, if meditation were real, there would not be another act in the world; man would be in an meditative act eternally - this is the meaning of oneness. Meditation, therefore, cannot be an exclusive act. If it were, then daily life would not be possible. Since daily life is made up of multiple events, they cannot be real either; they need to be illusory, and that is what they are.

Live every moment, and this is meditation because you will be in life, which is a meditative state. Even if a single thought is present in the mind, and it appears real, you will not be meditating. Meditation is a sophistication of the singular movement from birth until death, and not an act. This is merely an in-depth analysis; it is not meant to infuriate or contradict anyone. It is only meant to indicate the intelligence of life to manifest and maintain its illusions. If man gets upset or infuriated, it is proof that meditation has not delivered the promise of peace and enlightenment. And if ‘That Thou Art or Thou Art Brahman’ were true, who could man be?

It comes like a spring

Osho about Bliss;

When bliss comes it comes like a spring. It was not there and suddenly it is there; suddenly the whole climate is different. It takes you unawares. It comes very unexpectedly, and one never knows from where it will start and begin. Which tree will bloom first, will have the first taste of spring, nobody knows. What part of your being will bloom first, nobody can say. It can be love, your heart. It can be intelligence, your head; it can be something else. It can be creativity -- that suddenly you become creative, suddenly you start outpouring yourself into songs or poetry or painting. Or it may be that your silence blooms and all expression disappears and you are utterly silent. And that is the blooming of the spring -- the flower of silence.

The Shift - by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Seems to me a interesting movie;

Wayne talks about his book, The Shift:

Meditative musik, Asilomar Sonata Music Video from The Shift Soundtrack:



The Path

"Acquiring knowledge about the spiritual seems to to be the most difficult path of all". In fact the path is just the opposite: letting go of all the knowledge we have about the path and about ourselves.

"Sometimes many words are required to reach the silence that lies beyond them."

About trust

Trust has never cheated anybody, it cannot. And I am not saying that through trust people cannot cheat you. Remember, I am saying trust never cheats anybody. Sometimes it has happened that a disciple has become enlightened because he trusted the Master, and the Master himself was not enlightened. This strange thing has been happening down the ages many times.

It happened in a Tibetan mystic's life. He went to a Master. The Master was a fraud - and frauds exist in the world of spirituality more than anywhere else, because there it is very easy to cheat since they deal in invisible things. You cannot see. They say 'Here is God. Look into my hand.' If you don't see, they say you don't trust. If you see, they say ' Then, perfectly okay... can't you see?' and you say `Yes, sir.' And you are not seeing. When you deal in invisible goods it is very simple to cheat. In the marketplace there are frauds, but not so many. There cannot be so many there, because they deal in visible goods. There is some way, some criterion to judge whether the thing is right or wrong.

But in religion there is no way to judge. So out of one hundred, ninety-nine per cent are frauds. It is the best way to cheat people, nothing like it.

This mystic went to the Master, and the Master was a cheat. But this young man trusted - trusted utterly. He thought his Master was enlightened, and whatsoever the Master said, he followed one hundred per cent. It was rumored around the place that the Master was such a great man that even if you repeated his name and walked on the water, you could walk. Nobody had tried it before. And even if somebody had tried, then he must have sunk. Then there is always the rationalization that your trust is not entire. So you cannot catch hold of the Master - 'Your trust is not entire, that's why you sank.'

This young man walked on the water - and really he walked. And that became his usual thing. When you can walk on the water, who bothers to go to the bridge or things like that? People started coming and seeing him, and the other disciples - particularly the senior ones - became very disturbed. They tried in secret, but they all sank. So, even the Master was puzzled. One day, in secret, the Master himself tried thinking that `When my disciples can walk on the water just by trusting in me, then what can't I? I can do anything! I am the greatest Master in the world; my disciples are walking on water. Jesus used to walk on water and my disciples are walking on water, so I must be greater than Jesus!'

So he went, in secret of course, because he was afraid. He had never tried - 'Who knows?' And he knew perfectly well that he was a fraud. The disciple had deep trust in him, but he had no trust in himself. How could he have any trust? He knew perfectly well that he went on deceiving people. He walked and sank.

Then he called the young man and said `How do you do it?'

He said `I simply say your name - 'Master, I want to go to the other side' and you take me. And recently I have started flying from one peak of the mountain to the other, because I said 'When it is possible on water, why not in air?' So one day I tried and said 'Master, take me from this side to the other side' and you took me. Now I can do anything. Just your name...
The Master had to fall at his feet. And he said `You initiate me; you know the secret. I am an ordinary man, and last night I tried walking, and I sank.'

It has happened many times, because it is not really a question of whether the man you trust is cheating you or not, the question is that trust never cheats. You cannot be cheated because of your trust. If the trust is infinite you are impossible to cheat. Nobody can cheat you. Your trust will protect you. Your trust will become your very experience. Your trust will become your boat. Your trust will take you to the other shore.

End of the struggle

"At some point, it is true that the mind is no longer useful. It can not and will never come to any successful conceptual understanding of awareness. What occurs is a dissolution of ignorance as the mind realizes its own folly. Ultimately, the vastness reveals itself. In this "seeing", the mind becomes subservient to Presence rather than the other way around. Once "the mind" sees the Truth regarding awareness, it's struggle ends."

So, what does one do at this delicate point?

You are: the silent space within which leads us to a quiet signpost that says there is really nobody home, there is only the silence itself.

Once the "me" concept is looked at for that which it is and is seen to be merely a concept, the remaining space or silence is the place where "nobody" really exists.

Jan Kersschot

Dispelling of the confusion around the whole ‘enlightenment’ issue is all that is necessary to allow simple relaxation into what already is.

Nathan Gill

As First Person Singular you are not lost in the world: it is lost and found in You. And you have found the meaning of your life because you have conferred meaning on your world.

Inspiring words from Nathan

This appearance as the character is already the perfect expression of Oneness - nothing needs to change for this to be so. No awakening or enlightenment is needed - all of this is simply the story in the play. There is only already awakeness as oneness, regardless of whether there is mesmerisation with the play of images, or resting in recognition as your true nature."

- Nathan Gill.

For me he is one of the clariest pointers.

How do I know if I am making "progress"?

In a dialoug with Scott Kiloby a person past on a really good question. It is about progress;

The Space that effortlessly allows Everything to appear and disappear


If, having done the investigation, 'I' see the pointer that I am awareness and
 not the thoughts / perceptions, etc," and I see that I get caught up in these
 thoughts / feelings occasionally, and then step back, re-recognising that I am 
the awareness that sees all of this . . . how can I be clear that it is the
 awareness that recognises this, rather than a subtle game by the mind?

Not sure if I'm being clear, but I guess the question is: are there any 'signs' 
that one has the right perspective, rather than gaining a new, sophisticated,
subtle type of conditioning?


Excellent question!
It really comes from keeping this stuff on an experiential level instead of trying to think oneself into it. That's key!

 In just recognizing this awareness as the space within which all thoughts, emotions, states, sensations, and experiences appear and disappear, the "signs" start to reveal themselves quite naturally.

You get a sense that, whatever you are, it doesn't come and go. Everything else is coming and going. But you—as the space itself—are unmoving and unchanging. There is a perfect stability in that recognition. It is not the stability that one finds in coming to a really good mental conclusion about or description of awareness. All mental conclusions and descriptions come and go. This awareness contains a certainty also. But it isn't the certainty one experiences when he feels mentally certain about an idea. Ideas come and go.

The "sign" that there is a recognition of awareness is that the stability and certainty is not of the ego at all. It has nothing to do with ideas and stories. It is in the recognition that your real identity is like space. The space effortlessly and naturally allows everything to appear and disappear. Yet the space itself remains unmoved and untouched in a way. 

Real peace, freedom, and well-being reveal themselves in this recognition.

Formerly, you thought that the peace, freedom, and well-being were going to be found by emphasizing all those ideas and conclusions. But as you stand as what you are—awareness—you see that your real identity contains this peace, freedom, and well-being already. 

In being really clear (not mentally, but experientially) that this awareness is what you are, something else is realized.

Nothing that appears within this space has a separate existence. It is like space is being everything so much so that the line between space and that which appears in the space just cannot be found anymore.

To see this inseparability, don't apply effort. Just notice where you are emphasizing thoughts that create the appearance of boundary lines. Often the boundary lines come from a subtle division being emphasized in thought, as if there is an awareness here and appearances there, or a witness here and the world out there. By just noticing where thought is superimposing this boundary on your experience, the boundary is seen to be just thought also.

When this thought appears that gives the impression that thought itself is separate from awareness, notice that the thought is a transparent image. It is empty, just as awareness is empty. You can't punch it, hold it, or anything. It is like a vague paper thin cloud. In seeing both that the thought is empty and that the awareness that sees the thought is empty, the boundary line between them cannot be seen. It line dissolves away, so to speak.

But what you know is that the boundary was never real. It was a concept. So even the idea of dissolving is a concept.

What the blip do we know?

Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.

- Jelauddin Rumi

All speech, action, and behavior are fluctuations of consciousness. All life emerges from, and is sustained in, consciousness. The whole universe is the expression of consciousness. The reality of the universe is one unbounded ocean of consciousness in motion.

- Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

That which the dream shows is the shadow of such wisdom as exists in man, even if during his waking state he may know nothing about it... We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.

- Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

What we are looking for is what is looking.

- St. Francis of Assisi

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters to what lies within us.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

- T. S. Eliot

The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.

- Oscar Wilde

You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality.

- Ramtha

The birth of a man is the birth of his sorrow. The longer he lives, the more stupid he becomes, because his anxiety to avoid unavoidable death becomes more and more acute. What bitterness! He lives for what is always out of reach! His thirst for survival in the future makes him incapable of living in the present.

- Chang-Tzu

The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.

- Aart Van Der Leeuw

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the law of the universe will be simpler.

- H.D. Thoreau

Good pointing of Greg Goode

In the question of free will Greg Goode gives an good answer:

A free action and a free chooser cannot be found. A thought comes, followed by a desire, followed by a decision, followed by an action. Tracing backwards, the action is controlled by the decision, the decision is controlled by the desire, the desire is prompted by the thought. The thought arises spontaneously, itself unbidden, un-asked-for, unchosen. First the thought is not there, then it is. Nowhere in this process can a free will be found. Nowhere can a freely-acting chooser be found.

And next...

The person is not the locus of freedom.

The person and the rest of the world cannot be found apart from the awareness in which all things appear. The person, the mind, body and world arise as thoughts, feelings, and sensations. These are nothing other than objects in awareness, and are nothing other than awareness itself. The person does not experience; the person is experienced. As awareness, we are That to which these objects appear.

Thoughts, feelings, sensations - these objects arise from the background of silent awareness, they subsist in awareness, and they slip back into awareness. The awareness in which they appear is not itself an object but the background of all objects. It is our true nature. But the objects come and go unbidden, without autonomy. They are powerless and cannot do anything on their own. Objects cannot possess or contain freedom. Is there freedom?

The silent awareness in which all objects appear is the true nature of all things. Awareness says YES to everything. Even if a NO arises, awareness says YES to the NO. Awareness is without resistance, without limits or edges, without refusal and without obstruction. Awareness is not free, it is freedom itself. What we truly are is not the person but this awareness, this freedom.

The person is never free.

As awareness, we are never bound.

Greg Goode

Wisdom of both

THIS is very important to hang on to. The analog of the to faces and the vas:

I coment on this clip later.



Seaching for a Teacher

About seaching for a teacher, Francis Lucille, from my point of view, says something worth concider;

"Stick to the best available teaching. If you are seeking water, it is better to keep digging at the spot which seems the most suitable rather than to dig shallow little holes everywhere. We should find the teacher whose teaching we feel to be the best according to our heart and intelligence, and follow him/her for as long as we feel that way. We should choose our teacher for this reason alone, not for convenience such as proximity, access, gender, tradition, etc… We should honor the Truth buy seeking the best teacher. We cannot buy the Truth on sale."

Bhagavad-Gita Quotes

"It is indeed impossible for an embodied being to renounce action, but he who has renounced the fruits of his action is said to be truly non-attached."

"Bound by your own Karma born of your nature, you will do that very thing which your ignorance seeks to avoid."

"It is indeed impossible for an embodied being to renounce action, but he who has renounced the fruits of his action is said to be truly non-attached."

"No action will create any bondage for the individual who has the total understanding and acceptance that no individual can do any action (that every action can originate only in the source, according to a Cosmic Law)."

Eckhart TolleQuotes

-"It is not by resisting or running away from, but by that deep act of surrender that the divine is realized. And that amazingly does not take time. Surrender can only be now."

-"When 'my' and 'thy' merge, there is total surrender; your will is one with the totality."

-"If you have not found that which is timeless or formless in yourself, then nothing that you manifest will satisfy yourself."

-"The significance is hiding in the insignificant. Appreciate everything."

-"You get a stronger sense of who you are in your essence when you are not telling yourself who you are in your head."

-""The strange and beautiful thing about now is that it never leaves you and it doesn't change, the field of now. Because the essence of now is the unconditioned consciousness, the field in which all phenomena happen."

-- "Honor the now and any form that comes and goes with it. If you honor the now, whatever form this takes is also honored."

-"Remember, from time to time, to notice... that you are breathing."

-"Let go of who you think you are and you will realize who you are in your essence: the presence behind..."

Eckhart Tolle

Robert Powell: "All is intangible"

Consider this non dual quote from Robert Powell

"Ultimately all is intangible, that is, of the nature of thought or consciousness. And there is nothing more concrete or durable than that. We may therefore view experience as a movement in consciousness. As we shift into deeper levels of being, all differentiation disappears, and all that remains as existence is consciousness......once we have had a taste of this real freedom, this limitless realm of the Self, there can be no turning back to illusory entities that defile and threaten our true integrity and peace of being."

"The Mind is it's own Prison"

Robert Powell

God never close a door without opening a window. He always give us some thing better when he takes something away.

Not in the words

A good idea before entering a dialog around Non-duality is to remember that the subject is not in the words. It cannot bespoken of in the deepest sense. Naturaly the question about the meaning of it all arises. Is it meaningful to have a such conversation? Maybe it is up to each one of us to answer that question. If you try to find out in the words what the conversation is all about, you go nuts. Frustration appears. Confusion. But then, remember again that it is not IN the words. And still...

We are not outside of is just not In the words.


Happy New Year to you all out there.
