So you’ve read the first post To Awaken and other awakening information, and it resonates with you. You’ve seen the non-existing writing on the illusion of a wall, understood the Truth of non-dual Creation, so now you want to awaken. “Sign me up! Where do I start?” But how do we awaken?...

What Is Pure Intent, And How Important Is It To Awakening? Listening to many of those in whom Full Abiding Awakening has manifested, you may often hear one repeated “requirement” to reach that Awakening: Pure Intent.

One of the biggest and most common impediments to Awakening is the self-belittling thought, “Can I, just a regular, unspecial person really Awaken.” It seems full Awakening has happened to only a few select individuals, most of whom seem to have either been extraordinary persons with deep spiritual gifts & insights from a very young age, or who have devoted a whole lifetime to...

Once in meditation I had an incredible insight – “it’s all about me. Me, me, me.” I mentioned this to a few other meditators, and they were like, “Well, of course! That’s no great revelation. That’s just you realizing you’ve been seeing everything through the lens of  ‘How do I feel?’ and ‘How does this affect me?’ Congratulations on seeing...

Silence, Stillness and the Trap of Mental Awakening All experience of Pure Awareness and true Awakening comes out of Silence.  Indeed, God, or The Source, is Silence. Silence is pure Being, pure unmanifested, undifferentiated Is-ness. It’s what remains when we remove all thoughts, sensations, forms and feelings about what exists. It is the Ultimate Foundation of what we really are. The Silence we’re pointing to here,...
