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.

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

Galen Sharp, Wei Wu Wei & Non-Volitional-Living

I run a small publishing venture Tandava Press with my wife Natasha The first book to be published was my own The Dance of Stillness Well, recently we published "What Am I? A Study in Non-Volitional-Living" By American Author, Artist Galen Sharp. I can't begin to express my gratitude for to the Universe for the gift that it has been, to both my wife and I, in being privileged to help bring this book into being. Galen is a teacher, albeit, a reluctant one, of what is known as Advaita, or Non-Duality. The word Advaita quite literally meaning Not-Two! The central thrust of the message in Galen's book is "You Are Not What You Think You Are", that we have a completely false idea (generally speaking), of who or rather what we-are! In Galen's book the reader is taken on a tremendous, life transforming journey of
