True knowledge leaves an empty space for the Supreme

True Knowledge of the Truth is not a knowledge to keep.
Contrary to the mind’s understanding of knowledge,
which is something to keep, to save and cherish,
true knowledge removes ‘you’
and leaves an empty space.
And when there is no ‘you’, there is only Truth.
There is only the Supreme
Appearing in the form of a human being.
Even now, we are the Supreme,
But the game is to know this consciously
without arrogance, pride and identity.
And this knowing is being.
They are one.

Two kinds of searchers

Advaita (Nonduality, Oneness, One Love)'s photo.

There seem to be two kinds of searchers: those who seek to make their ego something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish (as though you could make a fish unfish), and those who understand that all such attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting, that there is only one thing that can be done, which is to disidentify themselves with the ego, by realizing its unreality, and by becoming aware of their eternal identity with pure being.

It requires no effort to be the Self

If it requires no effort to breathe,
it requires no effort to be the Self.
Therefore, all efforts and practices are for the mind
and not for the Self, which is perfectly effortless.

Can you see You?

You are One.
You are the singular being.
And, therefore, you cannot see you.
What you can see are only the projections that appear in your mind
—and some of those projections you take to be yourself.
While growing up we try out being all sorts of things,
so many different versions of ourselves
and all of these garments of identity have left
because none of them was you.
But you cannot leave you, even if you think you can and have.
You can leave the idea you have of you,
but your Self, you can never NOT be.
You may dream you are something or someone else,
you can momentarily appear to be something you are not,
but you cannot un-Be what you are.
And you are the one watching all of these dreams and appearances.
The amount of interest or no-interest will determine
the impact your seeing will have on you, if any impact at all.
And if your seeing has a tremendous impact on you,
that ‘you’ is still not the ultimate Truth—not your essential Being.
Contemplate this. Reflect upon this until you meet your heart’s joy.

Magic spells and love

Don’t let this world, full of magic spells, lure you away from love.

When arrogance combines with ignorance

All beings are bitten by the serpent of ignorance.
But when ignorance combines with arrogance,
then we are really in a very bad state.
You have to come out of arrogance.
When arrogance goes, humility comes.
When humility comes, ignorance also will go.
When ignorance and arrogance are no more,
Grace will be recognised and experienced
as the pure presence of God.

Clinging to our point of view

Advaita (Nonduality, Oneness, One Love)'s photo.

We cling to our own point of view,
as though everything depended on it.
Yet our opinions have no permanence;
like autumn and winter,
they gradually pass away.

Life is not a puzzle

Go for the greater, and the lesser will be taken care of.
Don’t worry. Life is not a puzzle.
It is the ego that gets puzzled.
You don’t have to work things out.
Simply keep quiet and let it all unfold.
If you think you can work life out,
you create an identity as a solver of life.
Big trouble!

Nobody can work it out.
As one surrenders one’s ego,
one comes automatically in harmony with life.
Watch as life takes care of life.
It flows spontaneously and perfectly in each form.
Let go to the dance of existence.
Why miss the best show on earth?

THE FAITH AND THE WONDER

  • THE FAITH AND THE WONDER

I do not believe in anything.
I have no religion.
I have no god, including the gods of money, science and atheism.
I hold no fixed theories about reality, including that one.
I see heaven and hell, karma, reincarnation and the search for enlightenment as beautiful fairy tales.
I have no guru, no lineage, no teacher, and so everything teaches me.
I see doubt and profound mystery as my most trusted companions.
I walk no path except the one appearing directly in front of me.
I have no home except this sacred moment.
I trust nothing at all, except whatever happens.
I find no meaning in life except the fearless living of it.
I know that today could be my final day.
I feel grateful for all that was given and all that was taken away.
I see the inherent limitation of language and yet love to play with it.
I see the joke in using the words “I”, “me” and “mine” and yet delight in using them.
I realise that I am not my story, and realise that even that isn’t true.
I find it impossible to say anything about myself, for experience is constantly changing.
I find it effortless to talk about myself, for who I am never changes.
I know that on the deepest level I am profoundly equal to you.
I know that these sentences are pale imitations of truth.

I do not believe in anything.
I have no religion.
Except the in- and out- breaths.
And endlessly deepening wonder.
