What is the value?

If our spiritual quest is to mean anything at all, then the Timeless Awareness that is our heritage needs to become a whole new way of living. One in which, our lives touch and even enter into the very core of suffering in this world of such bitter pain and brutal darkness. The shimmering light of Oneness needs to be translated into the helping hands of a friend, into food for the starving, or clothing for the poor. Then (perhaps) the Birth of Timelessness in time can be said to be worth something.

My Own Journey with Kundalini

My Own Journey with Kundalini  Many years ago, I found myself walking into a small upstairs room in a quiet suburb of Melbourne Australia to meet a man who, I had heard, had undergone a deep awakening into the unitive dimension of being. That man was Master Charles Through a series of seeming coincidences (I had been interested in brainwave entrainment sound technology and Kundalini awakening ) I had been led to this room, and with great anticipation I awaited his entry.  Up until this point in my spiritual journey I had been an ardent reader of teachers such as Jiddu Krishnamurti and Nisargadatta Maharaj, along with various Christian mystics such as St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. More recently, I had been introduced to the late Nityananda of Ganeshpuri, and Baba Muktananda. Needless to say, I had high expectations.  When Master Charles entered the room, I observed him closely; he seemed to sway like a drunken elephant and moved very slowly. He was wearing what appeare

David Rivers interviews Galen Sharp about his book "What Am I? A Study in Non-Volitional-Living"

"What Am I? A Study in Non-Volitional-Living" Explores a variety of subjects such as science, philosophy, quantum physics and even some of the ancient masters in quest of a higher way of knowing the world and ourselves. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Galen Sharp is a sculptor and author. In the 1970's he began a correspondence with the brilliant and enigmatic non-duality sage Terrence Stannus Gray, who wrote under the name Wei Wu Wei, that was to last several years. His teaching was to completely transform Galen's worldview and life. This book is the fruit of Wei Wu Wei's influence on a young seeker after truth.  Galen's book on Google https://www.amazon.com/What-Am-Study-Non-Volitional-Living/dp/0987380613 https://www.facebook.com/NonVolitionalLiving/

Relationships and Non Duality - Reflections on Jesus, and His Teachings

Reflections on Jesus and his Teachings From His own direct Revelation of the Oneness between Himself, God and all of His brothers and sisters. Which for Jesus clearly included the whole of humanity, Everyone, no matter what Their role or status in the community. His Revelation or enlightenment, showed Him 'directly' that "God is Love". What does it matter the quibbles and arguments, anyone can find fault with anything. There is nothing special or of any merit in that. It may get you some attention, yes!  Maybe make one feel a little clever. But to overlook such profound teachings in order to "get one up" on someone, or feel clever or superior is really not a virtue.  Jesus's message and teachings are so profoundly revenant, no one else (virtually no one) has taught and demonstrated such a powerful embodiment of Non-Dual Vision, in the context of daily life and human relationships. "My Father and I are one"   "My Kingdom is not of t

Pain Bliss and the Eternal Now

Hello my friends Well it's the day before Christmas and I am confined to my bedroom and find myself in quite a bit of pain. A few days ago I took my daughter Zoe (7 yrs. old) for a horse ride. On the trail a huge tree fell right as we were riding by, it made a tremendous noise, like a gunshot, only louder (to my ears). The horses were spooked and suddenly all hell broke loose as the horses bolted. Little Zoe struggled to stay on as her horse (named spook ironically) galloped full pelt up a hill, Zoe suddenly came off and smashed into a tree. I was probably in shock and on top my own bolting horse (named Jerry) we flew by Zoe who lay on the ground screaming in pain, I dismounted my horse while it bolted at full speed and hit the ground hard, tumbled down a hill and suddenly a tremendous pain in my right foot. Running to Zoe the pain was almost unbearable, we huddled together on the ground, covered in scraps blood and dirt, it was a hot day. "This was the worst thing that
Coming Undone Once again life brings "the me concept" and its supposed "volitional power to do" undone. Each time this happens, I have a chance to open deeper to the revelation that "I am not that" Yet, this is the very situation the self improvement teachings seek to amend. The self improvement teachings never question the nature of the self that they propose to improve. Whereas the Advaita teachings simply ask us to look and see that we may not actually be the conditioned self we take ourselves to be. Its this conditioned self that "comes undone" in what I term The Living Teaching, meaning Life's unending dance of  change and transformation, wherein, if we are open and fortunate, we may come undone and loosing a foothold find ourselves free falling in endless wonder and awe.
