The name of this site, “On Beyond Zen”, came to me one day, as a play on two ideas: the delightful children’s book I learned to read from when I was 7 Earth years old: “On Beyond Zebra” by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel), and my interests in Zen and in Non-duality.
The site is a collection of writing, mostly philosophical & exploratory, in the general areas of nondual philosophy, psychology, spiritual culture, society, technology, and And beyond!…anything else that interests me or I think is worth exploring and writing …
The intent is to compile these articles into a book (or two): one will be large photo book, with bits of inspiring text; the other will be a book of essays.
The project hopes to inspire readers, and possibly help them on their journey, by clearing the way: to be a friendly companion not just in this world, but point beyond the human mind, beyond conceptual understanding. To what? To that which encompasses both. What is that? Nothing: no thing. It’s an exploration into what is called “Consciousness”, the nature of reality, this Awakeness, this No-thing-ness, of Self-discovery… to the impersonal Love, Light and Life that we are.
But I want you to discover this wonderful land for yourself… perhaps these writings and images can be hints of Truth, Beauty, and Love that serve as a launchpad into the vastness of space, the space On Beyond Zen. Buckle in and leave your concepts behind.
Warning Light (beep, beep…): Enter this territory with Joy and Humor. Have fun.
Let the adventure begin…
