Getting to Real Spiritual Truth

"The nature of truth

is that it cannot be an idea.

Truth is free and beyond all ideas.



Any words attributed to it

already discolor it.



So in order to realize the truth,

one must go beyond all ideas,

even the idea of a 'me,'

for the 'me' if you really look

is also an idea.

It arises as a thought.



This does…

Meditation & The Bliss of Nondoing

"This moment is.



Your experience is.

It's a happening.



Doing this moment

means you're involved with thinking,

you're involved with action;

you're trying to impose your idea

of what should be here

on to this moment.



In nondoing, in relaxing,

we're not adding to this moment,

we're not trying to manipulate…

Peace Is at The Essence of this Moment

"Peace is not something you attain.

It is what you are.

Peace is at the essence of this moment.

Everything in this moment

is made of this peace.



So then we can conclude

that you are the doorway to peace.

You, as you are in this moment

are the doorway to peace.



It is just a matter of relaxing

that incessant search…

Awareness, Meditation & Nothingness

"Awareness is not concentration.



Concentration is narrowing your attention

on one particular object,

shutting out everything else.

Concentration is something you do with effort.



Awareness is not fixating attention

on a particular object but rather

relaxing attention into attention itself

as all-pervading consciousness.…

Awareness & Devotion: 2 Paths to Inner Bliss

"Once you have awakened into the experience

of consciousness and energy,

there are two main practices:



One is to rest in the nothingness

in every moment.



You go beyond being transfixed

by the wanting and worrying,

the seeking, resisting and distracting

and simply rest completely in the moment

as consciousness…

Spiritual Awakening Happens Mostly through Grace

"The real process of spiritual awakening

cannot be known; cannot be put into words.



Because ultimately Grace itself,

Shakti itself awakens you

in ways that will be both unique to you

and mostly unexplainable.



Spiritual practice is very important.

But spiritual practice is not a…

How to Experience Formlessness in Meditation

"Meditation can be as simple as

not being caught up in thinking;

not holding on to anything.



Thoughts arise

and you grab hold of them;

you get involved with them.

That is where all trouble starts.



So first,

be willing to recognize

when you are caught up in…

Realizing the Sacredness of Life

"It is helpful to recognize

that the one infinite consciousness

is looking through your eyes;

is aware of this moment

through and as your form.



If you really look,

you will see it is not

'your consciousness" that is looking.

It is consciousness itself.



The God or Guru or Formlessness

that you love or seek

is…

Experiencing Consciousness as Limitless

"Try and feel this moment.

Not emotionally, not mentally,

but through sensation.



That does not mean

feeling your bum on the chair

because that is thinking.



You are thinking

'my bum on the chair'

and that thinking

is getting in the way

of actually feeling this moment.



So close your eyes, relax

and…

Allowing the Intensity of Being

"If you watch your thoughts,

you will see that a lot of things

you claim you want,

you don't actually want.



If you are hungry, you desire to eat.

When you eat, that desire is fulfilled.

That desire was true.



But if you are not hungry

and you still desire to eat,

there is no truth in that desire.



When you eat,…

Becoming Conscious in What You Create in Every Moment

"From the perspective of the ego, you are separate from everything so there is the assumption that your actions have no impact outside of this moment.



But when you recognize everything is one consciousness, then you realize everything you do inwardly and outwardly has an impact.…

How Spiritual Practice Leads to Awakening

"One of the reasons we do spiritual practice

is to push our attention

beyond this sense of 'me.'



You do a little meditation,

get a little Shakti,

and you will find a little peace

without upsetting your sense of 'me' too much.



And perhaps that is enough for…

Meditation: Giving Yourself to This Moment

"The greatest fulfillment

you can have in any moment

is to give yourself fully to it.



Whatever you are doing in this moment,

give your complete attention to it,

without looking for something in return.

Realizing the Peace of Nothingness in Meditation

"If you throw a rock

at something solid,

that solid thing will be damaged,

it will be hurt.



But if you throw a rock at air,

the air is not damaged nor hurt.

The air is unchanging.



Similarly,

if you realize your true nature

of nothingness,

that nothingness is unchanging.

The peace that is that nothingness

How to Witness Your Thoughts in Meditation

"How do you witness this moment?



By allowing it to be exactly as it is.

You do not get involved with it,

dramatize it, analyze it

or try and change it.



You just let your experience

be as it wants to be in this moment

and in that allowing,

naturally there is awareness.

Witness consciousness

reveals itself in that…
