Throughout the teachings on this website, and all non-dual teachings, the core truth constantly reiterated is that our seemingly-individual human lives, and indeed this entire world, is an illusion. There is only One Reality, Pure Awareness. That Reality seems to project a temporary reflection of Itself as a Universe full of time and space, planets and beings, both sentient and...

People often ask me what is the easiest way to Awaken. Let go. That's it. The answer is simple. Let go. You are The One, Spirit, Pure Awareness, seemingly living out a separate, temporary identity in a human body. Being Awake is knowing that, experiencing it always. Directly, not just mentally. Since you already are That, there's nothing you need do to awaken. To consciously and...

There is a story taking place, masquerading as You. It is running a familiar, repetitious play called your Life. It is beautiful, painful, richly textured, adventurous, known and unknown, and so, so dear to you, closer than your skin and blood. It is not You. As a seemingly-separate identity, as a human here on Earth, we all seem to be living out a very real, very...

When we walk into a room with 100 people in it, truly, we have walked into a room with 100 completely different Universes. Even if everyone there is part of the same club. Sure, if we ask around, we'll probably find about half agree that the greatest classic rock song ever was "Stairway To Heaven." We might find as much as 30%...

For most people, who are not inclined to seek & experience the Ultimate Reality, the purpose of life often seems to be one of 'acquiring.' We live to acquire a good diploma or degree, then a lucrative career, abundant money and financial freedom, the perfect spouse, family, house, car etc. We live to acquire safety, security and assurance for ourselves and our...

With all this guidance about inquiry, meditation, and non-dual wisdom, a question that often arises is, where does love fit into all this? How about a Path of Love? Great question! ...

Depending on when 'you' started actively pursuing your spiritual or awakening path, you may have encountered different descriptions & promises of what you might expect to experience as you 'advance' on your path. The first barrage of Eastern teachers, Buddhist, Zen, Hindu & Sikh, to arrive in America came throughout the  50s & 60s, coinciding with the time when many young rebels seeking deeper meaning...

The Transcendent Key To Awakening: No Separateness A man is driving carefully down the highway, when another hot-headed driver cuts him off, nearly causing a serious accident. The man gets furious, shouts at the cut-off driver, flips him the bird, maybe even tries to run him down to “teach him a lesson.”   A woman who’s been feeling nauseous, fatigued and near bed-ridden...

Keeping The Awakened Perspective On Everything In Your Life No matter how embodied you feel – especially during those times of a tired, ill body and/or a troubled, desperate, lost-in-thought mind – you are Spirit. You are Pure Awareness. You could not be otherwise, for Spirit is the foundation that’s always here, before & after your body/mind comes and goes. If...

Our Cultural Conditioning & Non-Awakening As clarified throughout this site, Awakening or Enlightenment is the full-being experience that we are not only our minds & bodies & personal identities, but rather, we are that Pure Awareness that is “behind” all those distinctions. That Awareness is One not separated, Silent not busy, and always Present, not existing in “time.” Most of us spend our lives experiencing ourselves as...

You Are Spirit Having Experiences – A Quick Path To Awakening You are Spirit. You are Spirit having experiences. That’s not an opinion, or a pleasant spiritual aphorism. It’s the most obvious, self-evident Truth there is. There is nothing but Spirit (or God, or Pure Awareness, or The Creator or whatever is your favorite term for the One that is the Source of it All.) “In...
