Wreckage

like the debris and wreckage of a downed jetliner the shreds and shards of my unique and separate identity drowns… drifting and floating as invisible, indivisible, vaporous silent emptiness as endless seas of imaginings rain falling, wind gusting, small chards of what I thought I was are instantly dissolving into shadowless …

Sages?

Years ago, the words and concepts of Nisargadatta Maharaj and Ramana Marharshi pointed this pretend pilgrim towards the illusory nature of self and reality. The conceptual framework of notions about who or what we are is often held in place by what others, especially teachers, sages, and spiritual authority figures…like Nisargadatta …

What Remains?

It’s “mind-blowing” to directly see the tricks and games the brain/mind plays to perpetuate itself as a separate and distinct entity where none exists. Shockingly, there is no path to traverse…where would it lead? And for who? And for what?  This is…what is…an uncaused, spontaneously appearing impersonal consciousness playing …

Consciousness is Perceiving

From what perspective, or what perceptual lenses, are you viewing life?

From my experience, consciousness is the sum of three broad categories of perceptual awareness:

Inner – the sensory perceptions of the physical body.
Outer – the perceptions outside the body we call “other” or “objects” in the world.
Mind – the continual stream of arising and passing thoughts. (Thoughts are not to be confused with thinking).

Nonduality Books

There are thousands of nonduality books and teachers discussing Advaita Vendanta, Taoism, Zen, and Oneness, and I’ve read many. The teaching and sharing of these learned and revered concepts is also part of the perfection of the dreamscape. From this perspective, most nonduality teachers and writers are not willing …

Radical Love

Radical love, outrageous love, has no-boundaries, edges, corners, holes…it’s beyond description …it’s beyond comprehending by a relative, conditional, and objectifying human brain/mind. Radical love sees no separation between evil and good, sorrow and joy, fear and courage, form and formless, pain and pleasure, birth and death. Love bows equally to everything …

Pathless Path

Isn’t walking a spiritual path based on wanting, desiring, or a sense of incompleteness? As a spiritual pilgrim, i desired to be near God and dwell in Heaven when i died.  i desired to be cleansed of my sins.  i wanted to be a good Christian woman, wife, and …

Monkey Mind

Meditating often distracts from seeing what IS, unless there is awareness of what is meditating. And seeing what is meditating, desiring to feed the monkey mind with meditation slowly dissolves. Nothing needs purifying…investigate what wants to purify the mind and then dissolve those beliefs and concepts. Even when observing a fairly …

Not Two

I devoured the paradoxical and powerful teachings of the Ashtavakra Gita and other Advaita teachings on the spiritual path. Advaita (the Sanskrit word meaning “not-two”) are the scriptures within the ancient Vedanta teachings pointing towards a singular illusory omnipresent energy.  Meaning “not-two” and, as such, is the essence of all matter, …

Sensating

Perceiving reality directly with the senses, without any commentary or judgment is consciousness being conscious of itself.  Humans have a multitude of organs and regulators operating within the body and a few are listed below. These rarely or little noticed gifts are continuously sensing and operating within our bodies…yet …
