Reflections on “There is no such thing as human love”

By meestereric / February 28, 2022 /

On more than one occasion I’ve heard the Advaita (non-duality) teacher Francis Lucille (or his wife Laura also) say “There is no such thing as human love.”  What on Earth are they talking about? This would seem to go against our “normal” way of thinking, and may provoke a reaction amongst listeners. After all, isn’t…

Tag, You’re It: A Poem and a Contemplation of Reality

By meestereric / December 8, 2021 /

In my journal, scribbled some reflections, and a little “poem” this morning …   Tag, You’re It. In short … One cannot stand outside reality, one is It. One cannot know that reality any more than one can see one’s own eye Except as an image, appearing in mind, looking in a mirror… What you…

Who Are You Really?

By meestereric / October 27, 2021 /

If you had no thoughts, and if your girlfriend or boyfriend asks you what you were thinking about, and you say to her or him that you were thinking how you had no thoughts, your thought would be that you had no thoughts, which is a thought. But before that, you had no thoughts. In…

The Radical Journey of the Non-Dual Path

By meestereric / June 28, 2021 /

I have written before about how the non-dual understanding, or the living of it (the most or the essential thing) is the final stop on the “spiritual” journey. It’s the end of the road, because then, there is no seeker. It it the dissolution of the sense of a separate self, and the seeing through…

Why Nonduality? Or, The Last Stop (to Freedom)

By meestereric / December 22, 2020 /

As I was puttering around the place with various projects this morning I was pondering: why be into nonduality? Why be interested? Why not just let it go and forget about all this stuff? Why attend groups or listen to videos or discuss it with friends (like minded friends hopefully)? I’d been feeling a bit…

On Beyond Politics: the Radical Truth

By meestereric / October 7, 2020 /

For several years I was a leader involved in community issues a larger city, in an urban area.  I had been asked and then elected to a position of leadership by a “board” (I did not seek it). This happened after I’d demonstrating a natural enthusiasm for what was going on in my neighborhood, and…

Is Awareness an Experience?

By meestereric / September 2, 2020 /

The following is an email dialogue the author had with a truth lover friend in New York (who happens to be a psychiatrist/psychotherapist). She heard a nonduality teacher say that awareness was an experience. Q: How is awareness an experience? Isn’t experiencing always changing? It seems to me that saying it is an experience puts…

On Beyond Resistance

By meestereric / May 18, 2020 /

This is a more an artistic, “synchronistic musing” as a friend called it, than a philosophical or logical exploration. So read it as such. Enjoy …  Sitting on the balcony, pondering a friend’s request to expand on the “RESISTANCE IS FUTLE” section in my “The Dawning of Love” post, saying “…to me that is most…

On Beyond Nonduality: You Are An Utter Failure

By meestereric / May 5, 2020 /

The tension in nondual philosophy is that it contradicts with most experience, or seems to – for many of us mere mortal-seeming humans – so that it sets up a tension between a supposed special or non-dual experience and one’s own experience. In other words it seems to be saying there is something else besides…
