    Ashanti's Voyage to Date

    From her earliest memories “Ashanti” (1) clearly recalls being totally awed by the very fact that she existed, that the world existed – that anything at all existed. “Wonder is the beginning of philosophy” said Aristotle and of course he was right...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    For those interested in Non Duality,

    whether traditional Vedanta Advaita or Neo Advaita, for me, one of the best, current exponents is Rupert Spira. He is a straightforward person, devoid of the pretentious, suspect "religiosity" or woolly thinking and statements that unfortunately sometimes parade as Non Dual...

    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...
