I am---but not, not ever, not possibly---as an object.

What is considered real

is actually

an illusory aspect of

the true reality.

The true reality

is considered unreal


it cannot be verified.

The inseparability of appearance and emptiness

is the most essential and direct way of describing reality---

the absolute nature that has been present from the very beginning,

Is it real?

The "human experience" is a sort of "virtual reality": an "objective world" perceived and interpreted by "the body and the mind" to be independently existing.

All IS

The peace that is "ours"

is apt to leave.

Only "Peace" that is TOTAL

has nowhere to go.

regarding the Hsin Hsin Ming

Reality is perfect unity free of all reference points, with nowhere to stand and nothing to hold onto. It has never been spoken, never been written, never been imagined. It is not hidden, but in plain view. Cease to cherish opinions and it stands (unmasked) before your very eyes.---Adyashanti

the door is not locked


that neither we

nor anything else

is separate

from perceiving,

is all we need,


we need it.

some details from an earlier post sudden,


deliverance is gradual.

The sudden coincidence

of relative comprehension

with absolute apprehension...

throws open the way

to deliverance from 'bondage'

to our conceptual universe.

"no thing exists"--- Hui Neng

If no thing exists,

How can there be change?

"There are no problems."---Suzanne Foxton

PROBLEM from the Greek PROBLEMA, literally 'a thing thrown forward', (especially for the mind to solve): Greek PRO, 'forward' + BLEMA, 'a throwing', 'something thrown'.

"Objectivity" (the world of objects)

Is conceptual, as such.

"Pure Presence" is non-objective,

Free of the conceptual limitations

Of "time" and "space",

"self" and "other."

Friday, May 14, 2010

the essence of the message is that what is objectivised is not true as such

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 anything nominal that functions, or with anything nominal that results from functioning,

both of which are purely inferential.---Wei Wu Wei

Non-volitional Aware-ing is All there IS

Timeless Awakening is to




of EVERY "thing"...



and "external",

"There's nothing to say, and no one to say it to."

It's known

because nothing is known;

the play of not-knowing.

What you're left with

in not-knowing

is THIS.

There's nothing to say,

and no one to say it to,

because Life

is as it is.

"Enlightenment"---Relatively Considered by Wei Wu Wei

'There is a difference between Awakening and Deliverance:
the former is sudden, thereafter deliverance is gradual.
In fact what we mean by "Sudden Enlightenment" is
the perfect equivalence of phenomenal understanding with universal principal;
this is not reached by any stages at all.'---Shen Hui

Has any Master left us a clearer statement?

The sudden coincidence of relative comprehension with absolute apprehension,
whereby the division of mind into subject and object is healed
so that its wholeness supervenes,
in a spontaneous absence of duration,
throws open the way to deliverance from "bondage" to our conceptual universe.

With such authority, so simply stated, what "mystery" could remain,
what could there be to argue about?

We may continue to argue about the requisite preceeding conditions,
but the inescapable inference seems to be that relative perceiving and comprehending
must lie open to absolute apperceiving and apprehending,
for without the spontaneous im-mediacy of the apperceiving,
the apprehension of unicity could hardly be assumed to supervene.

Now is all there is.---Suzanne Foxton

Nothing happens

"before" or "after"



The True Nature of everything is just RIGHT HERE.

It's very obvious.

Whatever THIS is that we're trying to speak about,

It's always RIGHT HERE.

---Suzanne Foxton on Conscious TV


I must be total absence?

Since you are total presence.

no label

This endless moment is what is,

and if the mind leaves it alone,

there is never anything "wrong."

---Suzanne Foxton

Sunday, May 2, 2010

no one to lose or find any thing

When the label


falls away,

all that remains

is "clear seeing."

---Roger Linden


There is no time

during which

some one


do something about

What IS.

Awareness is non-local.

We cannot move towards it nor away from it.

---David Bingham
