is this moment not complete?

When nothing is wanted, nothing is wanting.

Stillness is the common denominator of all movement.

Zen and Swordsmanship

...the Mind in its suchness is at once movable and immovable,

it is constantly flowing, never "stopping" at any point,

and yet there is in it a center never subject to any kind of movement,

remaining forever one and the same.

The difficulty is how to identify this center of immovability

with its never-stopping movements themselves.

--- from D.T. Suzuki's "Zen and Japanese Culture"

exist < L exsistere, to stand out

There's no time for anyone to exist.

there's no time

There's no time to conceive 'what' is.

already - always - IS

There is no "doing" Enlightenment, as doing takes time.

Enlightenment already, always IS.


NOW is the common denominator of awareness,

just as awareness is the common denominator for all experience.

Awareness is single, only, and all-inclusive

There seems to be a time in our spiritual development

when we awaken (sometimes very suddenly)

to the wonderful realization

that THIS conscious Awareness, right here, right now,


That no "thing," no object of perception, no idea, thought or feeling

no thing

Aside from false appearances, there is nothing.

That is the substance of non-dual teachings

and the end of confusion.

this moment's presence

Is this moment's presence ever in doubt.

beyond knowledge and ignorance

Q: How can one know the Self?

A: The Self always is. There is no knowing it. It is not some new knowledge to be acquired. What is new - and not here and now - cannot be permanent.

ob-ject, a thing thrown or placed

You won't find

a single thing

that you didn't put there.

a thorn

We could say

that the "Total Appearing"

is Real,

but the "appearances" (apparent objects)

as such, are not.

Now Playing

Enlightenment is just seeing through the illusion, the story,
the movie of life...

the movie can contain absolutely anything and everything.

And does!
