"Undivided Mind"

Before you know anything, you are everything.---Stuart Schwartz

Awakening is from the dream (projection) of all objectivity, as such.

catch the wind

The "Secret" which is completely OPEN cannot be told.

a very brief conversation

Alan Watts: What must one do to become enlightened?
Tarthang Tulku: Nothing!
Alan Watts: (laughter)


Only in not-knowing, this is all known. Innocent not-knowing is what I am.---Unmani

an untruth

Truth cannot be communicated: it can only be laid bare.---Wei Wu Wei

Not-knowing is most intimate.---Lo-han

"no thing exists"---Hui Neng

EVERY "thing" is only apparently (conceptually) such.

non-dual experiencing

Sailor Bob:"Experiences come and go. You are the experiencING. Instead of looking for a bigger and better experience, realize that not a single experience could take place without the experiencing essence. Relaxing back into it, you'll see there's a subtle warmth or well-being in that." It's what you ARE.

All there IS, is Awareness

A pointer:

"Impersonal Awareness" includes all "things"

which therefor are not independent entities,

but aspects of "Awareness".

IT IS HERE! (where else?)

All I can do is point you to what you already(always) are innately knowing.
We're used to gross sensations, and that's what we're looking for. But the beauty or enjoyment is in the subtlety and simplicity.
This is it. Full stop. Just as it is.---Sailor Bob

One Without a Second


at the level of Non-duality,

which is TOTAL,

there can be nothing OTHER.

Seeing is undivided


"you" see

some "thing".

you ARE (inconceivable)

There is no such state as seeing the real. Who is to see what? You can only BE the real---which you are, anyhow. The problem is only mental. Abandon false ideas; that is all. There is no need of true ideas. There aren't any.---Nisargadatta

Sailor Bob often says, "You know that you are." What he is pointing to is actually PRIOR to ordinary, subject-object knowing. Therefore, it's NOT something that can or NEED be verified. In other words, you ARE---prior to knowing that "you" are.

from "The User Illusion"

We can derive knowledge from the world;

but we cannot derive the world from knowledge.

---Tor Norretranders


If we use the term "Enlightenment"

to point to What We ARE,

we can use the phrase "awakening to Enlightenment"

to refer to the realization THAT WE ARE !

Absence of all concepts is pre-existing.

Sunday, January 3, 2010


As long as nouns are used for the expression of a teaching, that teaching is dealing with objects as such, whether the objects be physical or mental, but the burden of the teaching can only be conveyed by the use of adverbial forms and by verbs, for the teaching is concerned with functioning rather than with anything nominal that functions, or with anything nominal that results from functioning, both of which are purely inferential.---Wei Wu Wei

from "Ask the Awakened", chapter 40

So it is in the living-dream: when any dreamed-sosie realises that he is identical with everything in the living-dream, and that everything is identical with (is nothing but) himself---he finds that he is awake, i.e. THAT HE IS THE DREAMER ALSO. For dreamed, dreamer, and dream are one, that is just a dream-ING.---Wei Wu Wei

from "Open Secret", chapter 70

Apart from manifestation manifested there is no such thing as non-manifestation. Manifestation is the only non-manifestation. There is no other non-manifestation at all. To conceive it as "the source" of manifestation, that is, as some thing-in-itself, is as misleading as to conceive manifestation as a thing-in-itself.---Wei Wu Wei
