What Is Self Realization?

Further Notes on the “Infinite Inquiry” … The central “problem” or issue, so to speak, is that of identification. One identifies with the body or mind instead of with what one really is: let’s call what we truly are “consciousness” (we cannot really name it, since it can be “known” only indirectly). Who, or what…

What’s Real and True (Poetic)

What is always true, Absolute, Not changing Obviously has to be outside of time or not in time, however you want to say it. So how do we talk about That? Or “This”? It’s not something that can be known. Quantum 🧰 mechanics And nonduality Hint at, point at, With metaphors and models … Yet…

Beyond Subject and Object

Context of Reality (according to the author’s  experience, corroborated by both science and non-duality: quantum mechanics and advanced neuroscience, as well as non-dual common ground of all valid wisdom traditions and central truths of the esoteric heart of religions, gnostic teachings, and mysticism): One invisible, infinite, non-local field of potential. “One” meaning: no division, no…

Knowing the Unknown

One of the main things to “know”, so to speak, regarding what is called “non-duality”, and the most basic paradox, is that it’s really ultimately about not knowing. It’s not an item of knowing; it’s not an understanding (unless you want to play with words like pundit teachers and say it’s “standing under Truth”); it’s…

Infinite Life: An Inquiry

Who is running the brain? Where did these thoughts come from? They seem to come from nowhere and disappear into nowhere. Who’s running this show, anyway? Right now, listen. To whatever there is. Be it inside or outside. Look, listen and feel, taste and smell. Without looking, listening, feeling, tasting and smelling. It’s not an…

Non-Duality and Suffering

Q: What’s your real value, at the end of the day, after years of seeking and suffering and finding, and all you’ve inquired into and seen and practiced over the decades? Is it worth anything, or just empty at the end of the day? Seems to me all this non-dual talk by so-called Neo-Advaita, and…

The Open Everything

How does one describe this “openness”? It’s like trying to describe empty space. What does freedom smell like? It’s not spiritual, not scientific, not psychological – not any thing. It has no story, no past, no future. It can perhaps better be described as an absence. But even that is not it … not right,…

The End of Self Inquiry

Self inquiry can be in the form of not “Who am I?” or “What am I?” But it can also be “What Is?” or “what is This all?”, or “What’s real?”. It can be a question, or a just looking, or, if without a looker, just being. But then is it really an inquiry? If…

Non-Duality Is Not Spiritual

Although what we call spirituality may have something to do with nonduality, it is obvious that nonduality has nothing to do with spirituality. It’s not even an experience, and cannot be an experience, nor item of experience. Nothing can be known about it. And yet, people go to spiritual teachers, as if something can be…

The Meaning of Words

I have noticed that even among the intelligent, well-educated spiritual folk, there is an assumption that the meaning of words is God-given or external or fixed: basically somehow sacrosanct or sacred. In other words, the meaning is in the words and language itself, not in its referent, and should be revered as such. This came…
