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

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

It's been a long while since I last updated this blog and the thought to do so, has been popping into my mind for a while now, so here goes! 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

Thoughts are impersonal

Someone once commented "I can accept that God is in control overall but its just the smallest decisions that I have to make that can cause confusion" And its that entire show or display/overlay of the mind, which is basically impersonally spontaneously arising and passing thoughts, which also in fact is a part of the Total Play. The thought stream itself need not change one iota, only the I-dentification with it. Either see as an apparent entity we do nothing, or as What IS, that which We ever are, We do everything.
