    You, Me, And It

    Truth is living us. There is a Mystery expressing itself as every Now. What prevents the living of that Mystery as these forms, in this moment, is our habitual tendency to think and to act as separate beings. In fact, the entire manifestation seems to strengthen this very idea...

    Incoherent Rambling About Nothing To Do!

    because there is noone to do it.  IF the concept that the apparent me (little me/ego/etc.) makes no choices or decisions is a reality; that, in fact, every action, thought, word and concept is born from pure awareness, then it doesn't matter two hoots if you meditate to...

    Why Practise?

    Spiritual practise is not means to an end, and as long as we treat it as such, we are bound to experience frustration. When the futility of this attempt becomes evident, we realize that all seeking or our meditating in order to get somewhere, is useless, and then our motive...

    This Very Moment

    This very moment is movement. Everything that you perceive is change. There is much written about ‘being in the moment’ or being in the ‘now’ and yet I often wonder if we are clear about what exactly this means. THIS moment is always changing, literally...

    I Seek Happiness

    As I read these very familiar and almost worn out words for the millionth time, I am struck by a recent discovery of my own outside of Advaita, Non-duality, the All, Enlightenment and so many other teachings/systems I have tried. If I am IT, All that Is, the Self, Consciousness...

    Non Duality Love Story

    Non Duality has become the epitome of all my experiences — the mysticism, the searching, the struggling, the dark night of the soul and finally the return to a simple state of oneness I call home. It is a universal love story. I finally realize there are others like me! Others...

    No 'i' That Loves Non Duality

         existence cannot be conceptualized because it is prior to thought. if existence cannot be conceptualized  it is not an object.  if not object, then not subject to time.      what appears as reality (object ) is  the unreal.  like a cartoon.  flip the pages...

    Taoist Dream

    I once had a dream that until today I did not understand: Everything was in shades of green - lighter and darker shades of the same color green (like a print my friend made of Chinese mountains with a path going through them - one of those impossible paths that appear on top of...

    While I have had but a simple taste of what the

    concept of Non-duality means and offers, through currently re-reading the book 'The Teachers of One: Living Advaita - Conversations on the Nature of Non-duality' by Paula Marvelly, I instantly knew that this was something which I was drawn to. I'm very much a person dominated...
