This post is a record of first, a written question-and-answer dialogue between the Advaita (non-duality) teacher Francis Lucille (Rupert Spira’s teacher) and a student that was posted online a number of years ago (no longer available, so it is posted here as a service).

By meestereric / December 9, 2018 /

Nor is it materialism…. But is it so obvious it’s not materialism? It will be obvious they are two sides of a mistaken coin, once you see it. First, some definitions.

I recently received this note from someone wanting some advice (“pick my brains”) about the Three Principles Psychology (3P), which I have written about in a number of articles.

  From a recording: “If you’re listening to this in your car and you find yourself in a beautiful feeling, roll down your window, pop the tape out of the tape player, and throw it out the window. Stay with the feeling, and it will teach you everything you need to know.” ~ Sydney Banks…

By meestereric / December 27, 2017 /

An acquaintance from an online forum sent a message to me recently, with a good question about Sydney Banks, who had a large awakening experience and, eventually, inspired what became the Three Principles Psychology movement. His question was in regards to its relation to nonduality teachings (I’d sent him some articles about nonduality student’s experiences):…

Spiritual Reflections on Spiritual Teachings (The Three Principles, Non-Duality…)

By meestereric / December 5, 2016 /

This is an update to an article I wrote a couple of years ago. I just re-read it and liked it, so am expanding it beyond mentioning The Principles (3P) in order to include the non-duality teachings I’ve been involved with (since early 2016). Those have heavily influenced my outlook, the content, the jist of…
