God exists. This is the nectar of all experience. Nothing is not God. You are God. But nothing peculiar to you is God. This appears to be a contradiction when first encountered. Seeming contradictions are most instructive. God is the the awareness you call “I” and all the peculiarities about you, your name, your face, […]Read More God
You are not the body/mind, therefore you cannot get up and leave the room! But when the body/mind gets to the next room, awareness is there also. Yet it did not move.You could say the explanation is that awareness is everywhere, and that is true from the relative position of the mind, the deeper […]Read More A room inside awareness simultaneously being perceived and projected.
The mind sees itself in a positive sense, something which illuminates the world. To the awakened Self it is seen that the mind is negative in the sense that it obscures, rather than reveals the world. It is like the image on the film in front of the projector light. The image is projected […]Read More Finding the source
These words are simply happening. Writing is happening. And reading it happening. No person is writing this. Just writing happening. No person is reading this. If you are reading this and you think you are person, the statement is still true. The same awareness that is present in the writing of these words is present […]Read More Who is writing / who is reading this?
Sometimes the body gets sick. Or you may get injured, and feel pain. In one way, sickness and pain contribute to our feeling of separation, because they appear to be so personal. We don’t want to feel pain. We want to feel pleasure. The sun on our face is more desirable than a tooth ache. […]Read More Sickness and pain are teachers
Discrimination, be it based on sexual orientation, race, religion, social status, age, gender, or any other sort, is a reflection of, and reinforces, separation in the one discriminating. Discrimination can only come from thoughts. Awareness does not discriminate. It allows. If one wants to awaken one must become like awareness. And you are the only […]Read More Discrimination
Imagine the human brain as electronic circuitry. This electronic brain is attached to five kinds of sensors to inform it about the outside world. One type of sensor is the visual sensor. It is sensitive only to a narrow part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Though the spectrum is a continuum that runs from very short […]Read More Transcending the circuitry
If you close your eyes and just allow a spaciousness. Notice your awareness has no borders. It’s just a shapeless, borderless space. You might hear a sound. A car door closing. A dog barking. Whatever it is just allow it. Notice your thoughts arising. There really is no difference between a sound occurring and a […]Read More An experiment in awareness
Maya is like a bubble of illusion. Within the bubble all things seem real. From without the bubble, nothing within it is engaging. Not politics, not the latest trends, not even death. Death only exists within the bubble, and without it, the bubble and its contents are seen as illusory and substance-less. We don’t […]Read More Maya, a bubble of illusion
Both science and Advaita Vedanta tell us that before the moment of Creation/The Big Bang, time and space did not exist. Time and space were created along with the physical universe. Einstein called time and space “Space-time” describing it as a continuum. Space-time began/unfolded at the moment of Creation/The Big Bang. Therefore there is […]Read More The Big Bang and the primacy of consciousness
